Traded up

Traded up to this today from a Robe of the Keeper. Liked the sort of greyish-lavenderish color better than the red of the old robe. I payed a lot less than the average price listed here for this as I went to bazaar with only 100PP in my pocket and came away with about 6 INT/mana boosting items for my little gnome necro. Most of what I got was yard sale junk, but when you're playing it the hard way without being twinked, powerlevelled or bankrolled by a rich friend or alt anything is better than nothing.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

I was given this item by a very nice twink troll in the Oasis, my kind hearted thanks goes out to you still. I have upgraded alot on my monkie, but not the CCS. For low weight, good ac, and str, it has served me quite well to my mid thirties.

Your CCS is the best piece of armor you have. upgrade everything else first.

Start by scrapping the serp bracers, for acrylia reinforced, or if money is a problem, bracers of erollis and hardened kodiak bracer.

Get gold/plat/or velium fire wedding rings to replace the bandit rings.

Those earrings you're wearing have no stats. sell them and get orc fang earrings.

Upgrade the ulaks. Personally, I like fighting batons, but Cane of the Tranquil is nice also.

Get spider fur for neck, back, and waist.

Then start saving for haste item. I like silver chitin handwraps for monks.

Once you have upgraded most of your other gear, THEN worry about the robe. Its pretty decent!

Depends. What class? Monk, cleric, wizard, etc...

Obviously, the upgrade paths would vary.

The price on these is dropping. This is probably the most common item in the bazaar. I bought one for 75pp.
RE: Price
# Aug 15 2002 at 12:14 PM Rating: Excellent
What i've found in the Bazaar is that for many items, there'll be a number of folks selling them at the so-called "going" price, and someone else pricing it "to move". In the case of the CCS, i got mine for 50pp, but every other one for sale in the Bazaar that day was going for 200 minimum.
RE: Price
# Feb 28 2003 at 1:00 PM Rating: Decent
I agree. You can see wild price swings on items. Last night I bought this baby for my new high elf enchanter alt for 15pp. The seller had sent out a note, "All my stuff goes!" and so I sent him a tell offering 15pp for the CCS. He went for it.

I have taken to keeping a spreadsheet of the items I'm looking for, and each time I visit the Bazaar I just do a search and go down the list to see what the current prices are. I also keep a "historic low" price for each item so that I have some sense of what the range can be.

Bottom line is if you have patience, you can usually over the course of a few sessions find something for a decent price.

Hope this helps,

Dwarves can't wear robes. Same with Wood Elves, Ogres, Trolls, Barbarians, Halflings, and Vah Shir. You will never see a robe usable by these races.

There are a few robes that dwarves can wear, but of course there is still no robe graphic for them.

Looks great on Iksar. Same powder blue color with a diamond pattern... reminds me of a diamondback rattlesnake.

It is a powder blue robe, the shade of blue you often seen associated with baby boys. It has a semi-circular cut out below the knees that shows the wearer's feet and shins.

With the Luclin graphics, the robes look different depending on what your race is.. So not everyone will have the circular cut out below the knees, nor will they have a diamond on it.. It is a light blue robe though.. without Luclin graphics turned on the robe has no decorations.

Actually after looking at the fashion pics above I would have to say it's a steel blue-gray color. Some of them look more gray than blue but that may be that persons color settings..

This is listed in the equipment search that a Beastlord can wear. Is this incorrect or did they recently allow this in a patch?

No, beastlords cannot wear this. I just checked the one I have in the bank to be sure it wasn't changed recently.

Better than Wu's Shirt?
# Dec 30 2001 at 6:54 AM Rating: Decent
I'm new at this whole Monk thing =o(
Whould this be better than the Wu's Fighting Shirt? I mean, the ac is only slightly higher and it has no agi. on it which is our most importatnt stat......right?

Some please give their 2cp worth, I'm kida confused. If the Wu's shirt is better this robe is going to my little cleric i started...she is naked =o)

RE: Better than Wu's Shirt?
# Jan 02 2002 at 11:03 AM Rating: Decent

IMHO I think this is a much better choice for a starting monk that Wu's...aye the ac isnt that much better and it lacks the agi bonus....but the str bonus helps a lot at the lower levels, as do the 2 points of extra ac...the int does help you learn skills faster (I had double attack mastered within 4 levels of gaining the skill, and my 1hb is nothing to sneeze at either :) Basically if ye can get this or have one already, forget the Wus...the weight is not so good ofr monks, but the stats help ye a bunch from the get go...I had one all the way (thanks to a guildy) until recently (thanks to a very kind person) from lvl 1-20...and now I plan on passing it along to my ailing necro :) Gl and hope ye enjoy it...monks are a blast:)
RE: Better than Wu's Shirt?
# Aug 15 2002 at 12:05 PM Rating: Decent
I agree totally - I have this too and have had it from lvl 9, my skills stay maxed or very close to it and it helps a lot with new skills. I do, however, have lightweight other items and can afford the weight (13 stones total). You may not have this choice yet.
# Dec 28 2001 at 2:05 PM Rating: Decent
only go for about 200 to 300pp on Brell. I traded a fighting baton for mine (since I had a CoT and a Centi Warhammer.) Really cheap. I've seen them sell for 100pp too. I guess we just have a lot of em on our server...
# Apr 04 2002 at 12:50 PM Rating: Decent
Yep, after deleting an old character, I had an extra CCS too, and I too traded it for a Fighting Baton for my Monkey...since the monk already had a CCS, was a good trade for me! But yes, the value of these things has fallen alot since it is usable by so few classes/races (even WE druids can't wear it!) and so as more have been looted/pharmed, the value just drops and drops.
# Dec 29 2001 at 3:33 PM Rating: Decent
LOL lost roll on this to a wizard. She sold it to me for 20pp, LOL. I was happy. It gives 4 more AC than my crescent gi and with the luclin graphics, it looks great!
wow i got lucky

today luclin came out and after all the patching was done and i was able to get in i went to the vendor in the freeport bank to sell and she had a blue robe so i check it hmmm it was a crystal covered shroud. i had heard about it so i boguht it and get this....the NPC vendor wanted only 16pp for it!!! i boguht it so quick and now it rests on my lvl 9 wizzy who adores it

Bought one in Cabilis from an NPC just before logging for the night. A nice suprise, also payed only 16pp. My newbie Iksar Monk is going to love this!

# Nov 03 2001 at 1:10 AM Rating: Decent
I love this robe. As a druid, I get begged for SoW quite often, and I just recently gained the ability to port, so this robe plus /roleplay lets me disguise myself quite well. One person thought I was a cleric, and another said I looked like a newbie mage. :) Awesome.

I got the opposite problem. With my skull helmet (executioner's hood) a robe, and a blunt weapon, I often get mistaken for a shaman and begged for SoW. Once someone even gave me clarity, hoping to get SoW in return! The ironic thing is, shamans can't even wear this robe.

Could someone tell people that not every iksar in a robe with a skull hat is a shaman? Could just as easily be a monk, or even a necromancer.

# Aug 22 2002 at 10:23 PM Rating: Decent
I agree, I'm no Shaman, but I have a Skull Cap, 1HB Blunt Shaded Staff and this robe equipped and I just happne to be a Necromancer! Never been mistaken for a Shaman, but I supppose it can happen.
RE: lol, sweet robe
# Dec 28 2001 at 2:12 PM Rating: Decent
Just wanted to say this... I've never seen a shaman with a blunt weapon unless he's a newbie. Even then, most of them get rusty spears... I see many druids and clerics where it to hide there identity.

I've seen many... seen some shamans in their 40's with one... just a matter of preference for the shaman, I guess. There are quite a few blunt weapons with good stats for shamans, including the iksar beserker club... a favorite thing to camp in Kurn's (many jester campers have my life in the basement of Kurn's a lot easier when I was in there going for the fingers for the rock schackle).

I traded a fighting baton for this robe. Seeing how some level 53 monk just gave me the baton, I guess I got this for free essentially. Looking at the average selling price of a fighting baton and this robe, I got it for about half the average price. Nice ac for its weight, and the +4 str helps. Nice monk item!
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 29 2001 at 7:47 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) tell me he did not just say that TELL ME HE DID NOT JUST SAY THIS IS A MONK ITEM. this is a druid/cleric item because 1 purecasters should have a better robe and 2. druid dont really get anything better than the foremans tunic untill like quest/planes armor this is nice for those human/high elf/erudite cleric and druid.

RE: Nice to see that monks get a wis item

Yes that is true. Wisdom helps skills like BlackSmithing or Tailoring and not combat skills.
RE: RE: Nice to see that monks get a wis item

WRONG, wis helps raise ALL skills (if it's higher than your int; if you're int is higher, int controls how fast you raise your skills); inclusing combat skills. Try playing a troll warrior and then a gnome warrior, you'll notice the gnome's skills going up a lot faster.
RE: RE: Nice to see that monks get a wis item
# Aug 28 2001 at 9:36 AM Rating: Default
Actually blacksmithing's stat for upping skills is str (better success) and tailoring is dex (better success). Wis and int play very small roles for those skills (as well as jewelcraft, but not many monks go for that trade, hehe). That aside, no monk or melee class with exceptions to hybrids should ever make a point of getting int/wis gear over a class that uses them for main stats as it will do nothing for them when they should be focusing on sta/str/agi/dex. How would you feel if the wiz got a 25 ac, 10 str/sta/dex tunic over you? :-)

If a monk does want int/wis gear for trade skills because they enjoy doing them, weight won't mean jack to them as it won't be used in combat unless they get jumped at the forge or something. So if you find a 20 weight 10int/wis piece of armor, shove it in the bank and pull it out when you go to practice your skills, otherwise focus on your main stats, hehe.
RE: Nice to see that monks get a wis item
# Feb 13 2002 at 12:09 PM Rating: Decent
Liberal Conspiracy
Wrong. ALL trade skills use the higher of INT/WIS to determine skill raises. However, for smithing it adds in STR (and uses the highest of the three) and for tailoring and fletching it uses the highest of INT/WIS/DEX. Successes are determined solely by skill vs. item difficulty.

Someone with W:80 I:190 S:90 has an identical chance to skill up in smithing as someone with W:80 I:90 S:190. Or someone with W:189 I:189 S:190 for that matter.

OK let me just say that this is a great robe. The bad thing about them is that they're lore ( My cleric got one for free in crystal caverns because they drop so much everyone has one already and can't loot another. That same night me and my monk partner killed the herbalist 5 times and it dropped 4 times, got the pack once. Anyways, we both already had one robe and couldn't loot another so my suggestion to newbies is if you can somehow get to Crystal caverns and sit in there for an hour or two you can probably get one for FREE. 3 people got free shrouds from us because we couldn't loot. I wish they weren't lore ( i'd be so rich. This is on terris thule by the way and these are very common.
