Awesome time for new castors, horrible time for the old ones

I know 7th is known for its screwy economy, but with the release of PoP and on, these "newbie" robes as they've been dubbed have pretty much universially dropped to a price of 50-30pp. This, crystalline robes, Advisor robes, robes of the oracle are now so blatently cheap it makes me twinge to remember how much I paid for mine back in 2001. For a caster now to get what I was wearing at lvl 40 now in the bazaar would take probably around 200pp. Plus with the new caster made robes you can get some good midgrade for what I paid for a crystalline robe. Just watch out, that step from caster made to 50+ nice drop or no drop robes will make your guild or your wallet bleed.

better robe

do you guys know any robe thats better then BCR and is affordable?
Very nice robe!
# Jul 17 2002 at 10:49 PM Rating: Default
Just got one of these on Zebuxoruk for 300pp (which appears to be the fair and going price as of late).

Great robe with great stats for the price. My next robe upgrade will be to the Froglok Bonecaster's Robe (FBR) which goes for around 3k.

The INT is very nice for a robe and the 10 svc will come in handy hunting in Velious (or duelling that nasty Shaman).

My mage is the character that has this and with his own personal buffs and elemental protection items, this 10 svc really adds up.

I highly recommend this for anyone who can wear it and doesn't have the 3k or more to spend. You'll get alot of use for it before you find the need to upgrade and spend the plat.

yes very nice robe indeed, was just passing the herbalist by, didn't notice he was even there initially. It's not a tough mob, saw he was a caster, just rooted him and casted drifting death, drones of doom and immolae on him and prepared for another session. I thought he would heal himself several times, but he did not even do that. When looting i found this nice robe. Wich i gave a way to a new chanter in the guild since it does not fit on any of my chars. But all i actually wanted to say, that the guy is as tough as an oracle. if you can handle an oracle
don't expect any probs with this guy. Getting there will be the biggest pain.

Additional info:
Killed him now 5 times
got him drop 3 robes and 2 weight reducing backpacks.

Color doesn't change by Class. For that matter race still has similar coloring patterns. :)

Is this robe black while in your inventory window, but red while on your body?

On a Dark Elf, this robe is black, and has a pair or teal green (kinda) stripes down the front. It never looks red when worn.

If you see someone in a red robe, it is most likely a robe of the keeper, an ac7 2int newbyish robe, which looks kind of nice, so some people may wear it even when it is kind of underpowered for their level. Also, to the chanter above, class has no effect on robe graphic, only race.

On a dark elf the Advisors Robe appears red too. Anyone know of a good caster rundown of robes? Like a chart of comparison? Post a link perhaps?

Just got finished camping the Terror room. We looted two BCRs in a matter of an hour plus plenty of amulets, and Froststone Stien. They are just one int better then the Advisor's robe minus the 5 vs magic and 2 agi.

If this item truly drops off the Herbalist than it doesn't JUST drop off him. Some friends and I camped the Tentacle Terror room in CC for about 14 hours. In that time we had obtained 3 of the SK swords, 1 Froststone Stein, 2 CCSs, and 1 BCR. I see no mention here about the BCR coming from anywhere other than the Herbie but I assure you I was no where near any orcs when we got this. Just wondering thanks...

Re: Wisdom for Trade Skills - maybe
# Oct 17 2001 at 5:48 PM Rating: Decent
Ever so often I see the age old and disporved myth that wisdom is necessary for trade skills and helps with success or failure. Unless you are a class that uses wisdom as the base for your mana, wisdom is completely irrelevant for trade skills. I played an ENC to 53 and was at 214 JC. My wisdom sucked and I never had any wis gear for JC. I spoke with several other high level ENCs for JC and all confirmed that wisdom is irrelevant. Moreover, Abashi, a while back, confirmed that it was irrelevant. Just to clear things up from personal experience, other's testimony, and Abashi.....wisdom has no effect on trade skills unless you are a say a Druid, where wisdom is the basis for your mana.

Actually, the mana thing is irrelevant. If you got mana from wis, but happened to have higher int, int would determine skillup rate. Of course, that is highly unlikely to happen. However, if you were say, a pally with low wis, and had an int caster friend with a stein of maggok and some int rings/earrings that they were willing to loan you (or you had an alt), you would still benefit from the high intelligence for skilling up. Same for an int caster with high wisdom (same example but with sk, and a cleric friend). I use the hybrids as examples because they would be more likely to have lower wis/int, because they need melee stats also.

Well, that's mostly true. Wisdom is irrelevant for your tradeskills, if your intelligence is higher than your wisdom. But if your wisdom is higher than intelligence, it's your intelligence that is irrelevant. It's either your wisdom or your intelligence, whichever is higher, that effects how fast your tradeskills go up. Also, strength adds a bit of a bonus to raising smithing, and dexterity adds a bit of a bonus to tailoring and fletching.

P.S. Your wisdom or intelligence never has anything to do with your success/failure at attempting to create an item using your tradeskill. Your wis/int (whichever is higher) effects your chances of improving your skill when you combine your ingredients, but it's only your current skill level in that trade skill that effects your chance of success in the combine.
Which robe?

It would be helpful for price comparison on a server by server basis, to inform us of what server you are on?

I too, was extremely surprised when I have asked for a Pc on this item [Black Crystalline Robe], to be reguarly told in Ec that it sells for around 400-500pp.

However, it must be said that Ayonae Ro has a reputation for twinkage -- merely a comment, not a judgement.

#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 11 2001 at 5:12 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hi, Gallowbraid here from Bristlebane...I have been hunting in CC for about 2 weeks now and have two of the three robes that drop there. Unfortunaltely I do not have this one. If anyone is interested in trading this robe for a Crystalline Robe please send me a tell, I have a friend in RL that plays a chanter and this robe would be perfect for him. Thanks =)
Drops off of different mobs.

We looted one off of a Life Leech at the entrance to the Geo's tonight on Torv.

# Oct 02 2001 at 12:32 AM Rating: Decent
I've been down in CC for awhile, camping the Queen and the Terror Hall and once in a great while, the Ry'gor Orcs. Now all through my travels, I have only see this robe drop off the 'Life Leech' Never, never off an Orc, But stranger things have happen...I too killed a Life Leech in that spawn spot as well as a 'Hollow Crystal' which dropped a 'Frostone Stein'...
It is safe to say that the spot at the beginning of the Geo Mine is a Random Terror Spawn. All Terrors can Spawn there...

Just to confirm, I was in roughly the same area, but not camping the Queen, just the Terrors, and this thing dropped like 3 kills after I got there. Apparently it dropped before I got there too in the same place. Looks to me like it a random, or pseudo-random basis. It's perfect fer me, being a chanter and all....
Dramatic Price Reductions in Caster Robes
# Sep 02 2001 at 7:57 PM Rating: Decent
54 posts
There have been 3 seperate occasions when I have seen this robe [BCR] being sold in East Commonlands for between 400-500pp.

I would say that perhaps I have been *fortunate* but prices for caster robes have tumbled on my server:

SMR = 3k
Crystalline = 1k

Although the Oracle is steady at 400pp.

Judging by the stats, this robe [BCR] is strictly a chanter robe, as I would get the oracle if I was another INT caster class (for the same price range).
