You have to admit a no mana nuke is still total rule. and if your high in channeling you may be able to move a bit and then cast or maybe on a horse.

Best use of this robe

As a wiz, you kite using our snare (quad or single, you do it). I quad wyverns in cobalt scar, and single pull the drakes. Many times, when the final nuke isnt enough to kill, the drake will just fly in place, waiting to regen or die from that next nuke. Well, this robe is the solution. instead of wasting more mana, you can stand back and finish the job for no mana.

This is a common situation. Another is breaking into Hate. Sitting can be fatal, and as a wiz, you may be required to save your mana for ports when breaking in. This is a free nuke you can add to the raid. Plus it has a built-in raid cast delay timer of 28 seconds.

Finishing of a mob with a 28 second nuke? Sounds like a theory that wont survive contact with reality. Not only will most mobs regen during that time, they will prolly break root and come whoop your butt or be halfway across the zone before you're done casting it. 28 seconds .. thats about 1/4 of the time that wizzy snare last.

As for using this to nuke on raids; Sure, if it's an outdoor raid and you can sit on a horse/drogmor while casting it it might work to nuke during the long fights. However, if you use this on yard trash you will spend most of the raid FM looking at a 28 second castbar. Furthermore, most mobs will prolly be dead before its done casting.
A nuker who cant land his/her nukes with precision during the last 0-5% of the mob hp wont be very useful to a raid when it faces gater mobs.

Face it, the effects on the Velious quest items is not the primary value. 15sta and 90 mana is what raises my eyebrow, thats very nice for a robe that is obtainable thru MQ a fair bit down the levels.

i think the person was referring to period when the mobs run away which is about 20% and lower. now i dont have the robe myself so i havent seen the 28 seconds cast time, but from 7-11% i seriously doubt the mob will heal to 20+ in 28 seconds. root last about 30 (if you get the full time) and ive had mobs rooted while i try to raise the last few mana that i need and dont remember them healing that quickly, so i think he has a resonable point. the spell may take a while, but hey, if your on a mount and your sourroundings are safe why not use it?

Only usefull part of the thurg armor for casters is the robe.. the rest have sucky int/mana, except for the arms, they are nice upgrade to transient. Same mana but give 5 int which helps too. Unless your a low level ( like 25 or lower ) and get some friends to help you raise your coldain faction and just get the thurg armor to make people think your "uber"

right click nuke is just plain awsome, heh but the echanted silk is like impossible to get, oh well guess I'll wait for lvl 50 for this sweet thing=)
# Apr 18 2002 at 7:05 AM Rating: Default
28 second cast time for 450 daamge nuke! Aye? Whats the problem? ITS FREE! What do you expect a 6 second cast time ?

Considering all the crits a wizard can get now, figure this thing can be pumped up to 800+ with Crit 3..

Dont **** and moan, specialy when your OOm and your soloing or grouped and LOM.

I would die for this for my class.

Dear PepsiBoy, wizards recieve their ability to deliver critical spellhits somewhere around lvl 10. With a ID item and a crit, 800+ nukes doesnt seem impossible at all.
Granted, i've never seem anyone deliver a critical blast with a right click nuke, but ive seen weapon procs deliever both critical heals and critical blasts.


PS. WTF is Crit3?? I agree SCF and SCFM are AA-abilities ...

Lower Wizards?! Hehe, look at the item, its no-drop and so is the torn silk that you need to get in the Kael arena. Just how low a wizard do you think can get this? While its obvious that you have amazing gear, I can tell you that a lot of Wizards 50-60 would love to own this robe. I know I would.

One other thing ... what exactly was the point of your post? (besides bragging about your gear).

You can multi quest Thurg armor.

The person that loots the robe turns in, then you turn in the (purchased) gem and get this robe.

Both of you have to have sufficient faction to have the npc give you the quest.

Agreed, Phil is a 56 wizard and before I got this I was in a Froglok Bonecaster's Robe.

The funny thing about this is, our guild does Kael lots (arena mostly) - but the torn enchanted silk robe droped off a mob on our way to the castle at the bank area? And if I remember correctly, it was just some random mob too, nothing special.

And he says the Velks robe has better stats? Lets take a look at them:

Vermillion Robe of Torrefaction:
AC 15, 10 int, 25 svs fire, 40 hp, 75 mana, effect: conflagration

Sage's Robe:
AC 12, 15 sta, 14 int, 5 svs all, 30 hp, 90 mana, effect: enticement of flame

I guess each person can judge for themself as to which robe they would want to wear; as far as stats go (and stats only) I choose to wear the Sage's Robe. Both have nice looks, but once again, I think the Sage's Robe has the more unique look.

I was very happy when this was merited to Phil.

For those of you saying this robe sucks and lada dada. I dont know about all of you other wizzy's out their but i quad kite often to make up down time. I am on Torvo and find that quad kiting is great xp when not in the hole. Ever been quad kiting and one freaking wyrven or whatever resists one of your aoes? Not to mention you started cus they popped and its rare to see 4 up at once and you were only 45mana when you started?! Now you got one very upset wyrven left alive and you with no mana, no c2 and no KEI to help with the run sit or root sit.../sigh just right clicky the robe! Sounds great to me i will prob end up getting the SS robe since i hear that the drops for us wizards are more common their =/
Been in Kael allot and seen 2 enchanted torn silk drops. =/ GL if you get this item flaunt it cus you deserve it!
Now a rotting robe

This is rotting in my bank now :\ I got the opportunity to upgrade to Robe of Icicles alot nicer but this is still a pretty nice robe... and as for the effect I like rooting the Othmirs and blasting em a couple times to finish em off after I kite em around a lil

Not a bad robe but ***** far as the "int being worth 1 point"
WIth SoL - its now 6 per, 6x55=330
Not much to give up gear for really - but if your soloing melee types - who gives a damn how much resists you got - u might need the mana for another root or nuke

Concentrate on getting to 200 - then work on getting resist gear, then if u pick up an int item that would say - put u at 205, dont sell it right away bank it - should have a set of resist gear AND - AND the mana stuffs
I don't know about the other servers, but my wiz on Terris Thule is soloing his way to 60 :/

# Dec 09 2001 at 5:52 AM Rating: Default
The only good thing about this robe is the +mana, other then that the robe is useless. I am using Rainment of the Chosen (PoH drop) 22ac, +16 Int, +10 sv Poison and Disease (very nice for Trak). The +mana from this robe is not worth the trouble of doing this quest.
Just my thoughts

where does the enchanted silk drop?
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 02 2001 at 8:03 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) A better effect on all the casting class chest pieces would have been FT1 (unless they are a hybrid, or a preist, then maybe a SHeal would have been better?), or some type of mana enhancement. If anything, Enticement of Flame gets resists just as much as any other spell I have had. There would have been much more usefullness out of mana regen.
My thoughts

1/ If you cannot sit during a fight, you have overburned.

2/ Forget AGI, forget AC, forget STA, if you're getting attacked in a group, you've overburned. forget everything once INT is 200+ except Resists and +Mana, balance it how you like. Personally I am a resist junkie.

3/ Stop posting nonsense on messageboards if you don't know anything about the topic.

roflmao ethel... obviously you've never been to plane raids (hate especially) or AE groups. In most of these raids/groups you have SWARMS of mobs running around completely untaunted... looking for that poor sapsucker who decides to sit down for a small med break. Also, have you ever actually been to a raid where there are so many mobs that you go oom in the first 3 minutes of a 20 minute battle? If you have, then you would know how wonderful a mana free nuke is. That goes the same for everyone else that says this robe sux. The only person I've seen with a valid point is the guy who was comparing the velks robe, and then you have a close match, not a clearly better robe. Now I would like to know... what exactly does sitting have to do with this robe? I see nowhere where it says 'this robe will help you out only if you are sitting down.' Sheesh... stick to the point.

here's my only problem to that, i have most every resist 110+ and i still get smacked with you cant for get sta/hps..thats how you live long enough to be able to nuke, when the guild calls for them.

#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 13 2001 at 7:27 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You don't know what you're talking about. Wizards have the weakest damage capability of any class in the game, outside of enchanters and maybe clerics. Too bad they're supposed to be the best at dealing damage, but they can't win in either the short or the long term. Rogues can do more damage faster than a wizard, and FAR outstrip the damage a wiz can do over 3 min... 60 rogue can easily triple a wiz in that time.
RE: Effect
# Jan 23 2002 at 5:56 AM Rating: Excellent
wow rogues are really that powerful?
Lets see a 60 wizard prolly has about 3k of mana, Porlos' Fury is 450, 3000/450 is 6 casts
6*2000=12000, cast time 6 seconds * 6 = 36sec, recast time 5 sec * 6 = 30sec
12000 damage in 1 minute 6 seconds

rogue must do 36000 in 1 minute 6 seconds to meet your expectations
We must take into concideration that doing that much damage is suicide for a wizard, but snare and root can help out a bit

Wizards need more firepower in my openion... if it was not for them beun about the most useless classe Pre-Kunark , wich Spawned all the Mega Resistance Isses wich only Wizards can cast on... Every other caster in the game would not have to cast a Magic Debuff just to hit a Regular MoB...

Persoanly i think this is a good item.. provited the cast time is approx 5 sec's i mean not like thay are gonna Kite something with it.... It just give Wizard another use when thay go OOM.. now thay can contenu to do a little dmg and Aid the group, rather then sit down and die...

And if you ever fought Measto you know that once you argo alot of Umber MoB's you cant Sit down, the Mob will Bypass all the tanks and hit you befor resuming it's attack on the primay target... this will allow a Wiz to Stay standing and still do dmg even if thay are OOM, Just a item to make the Tanks life a little simpler...

Sorta... They need to make the casting time less ridiculous... since you still have to hit a lot of these mobs in Melee range to even do damage with a spell, in 28 seconds, the mob is gonna do a lot of moving. 5 seconds is too short, I kite with spells over 5 seconds casting time all the time. If this thing cast in 5 seconds, I'd actually go out and spend hours upon hours obtaining one of these, and then kite with it to my heart's content. I think 10 seconds is more appropriate. Too long for kiting, short enough to be useful.

im a 44th wiz, still looking to get that spell the regular way :P offhand, id say the robe is very nice without the effect. so ill not complain if it has one, even if it is long. many a time have i been oom with a mob almost dead. if i keep just enough mana, i can root it and finish it off with that. ill take 28 second cast time over nothing anyday.

1 point = 1 mana when Int is greather than 200 = not worth it.

Only morons get AGI gear. Saves/Mana/HP gear are all a caster should worry about. As long as your AGI is above 75, you're fine.

I still can't believe someone said "Dump it and get some AGI gear."

P.S. Don't pull that "Agi affects dodge" whatnot either. Dodge caps so low on casters that it's not reliable at all. If something swings at you, you WILL get hit, and get hit HARD. You want the HP gear to absorb it, not AGI to hope it may affect your dodge.

Actually he/she said "Morons have 255 int...braggard! get some agility and magic resistance poopypants".

Keyword = AND (not poopypants).

Me? I'm working on resist mana gear while keeping int above 200 (Just like the majority wizards). I dont give a rip about agility.

Oh, I "dodge" alot even tho the skill is capped at 75. I see "YOU dodge" atlest once every mob that is pounding on my frail weak frame AND (keyword) my AGI is still under 80. Granted it's not enuf but still, once is better then never.
