From everything I've read, these armor quests appear to be quite challenging.

Clickable Effect: shield of lava? Summon bandages? How about Focus effect: FT, of any level.

Haven't we earned that by this level?

Don't get me wrong, the other stats on the robe are quite nice and most magicians would benefit from wearing it. I just wish the effects were more in line with the difficulty of obtaining the robe.

On another note; for those tank types that have commented we magicians just sit on our butts and toss in a nuke when the mood strikes us while our pets do all our dirty work:

/rant on - You clearly have no idea what it means to be a magician. We are slaves to our mana regeneration. Nuking too often or too early is a fast track to the top of the mob's hate list. Doesn't that make your job tougher? So yes, we don't start nuking right away. Yes, we don't want to nuke too often. Yes, we must spend a lot of time sitting and watching our mana bar refill oh-so-slowly, while you pull mobs non-stop.

While I'm sitting there my pet is at your side helping pummel your opponant, or better yet, being set on those troublesome adds to keep them occupied, take the hits, and mete out damage until you have time to get to them. Doesn't that make your job easier? These are some things magicians contribute while we're just "sitting on our butts". /rant off

This robe is not white its not black, it looks like a FBR just its dark green and where the design's are it fades to a very darkish brown/black..
wondering what the white robe is

under the fashion table in the web, there shows a high elf male wearing a white robe and it said that was the summoner's robe. If the summoner's robe suppose to look black, what that white robe is? anyone knows?

The moron up there, if you don't speak english , just get lost.
The robe is super dark purple with green stripes, but it was not as sharp as the one show in this link from this site. Was wondering what the white robe is still

That picture you are referring to is a high elf magician wearing netted kelp, its not the summoner's robe.
RE: wondering what the white robe is
# Jul 16 2002 at 6:32 PM Rating: Decent
that is not netted kelp, thats the model for tizmac armor, check the fashion if you don't believe me
The effect sucks
# Jul 14 2001 at 5:58 PM Rating: Decent
I like the stats on this robe. But, like all the velious mage robes, I hate the effect. I never use shield of lava anymore, and probably never will. I wish that effect would have been CoH or something that a lvl 60 mage would actually use.

Icewalker of Club Fu on Bristlebane has got one of these. There is (at the moment) an image at

Effect = GOOD
# Jun 14 2001 at 5:02 AM Rating: Default

I'm a 54 mage. Let me tell you, the effect may not seem to be anything special or out of the ordinary, but it is a huge mana saver. Save 120 mana per tank and pet, it's easily worth it - saves mana to cast nukes, malo, and COH (don't have CoH yet, next lvl).
RE: Effect = GOOD
# Oct 07 2002 at 5:39 AM Rating: Decent
you wanna know something thats a huge mana saver? look up the kunark brestplates, now those are mana savers, this? this is a creampuff on the sleepers ***, almost completly useless, now if it was boon of immoltion (our group ds of this) now that would be nice, this, this is ****, really it is.
RE: Effect = GOOD
# Aug 10 2001 at 12:54 PM Rating: Decent
first of all, at 56 we get a better ds, and it's very unlikely that you'll be using shield of lava after that. second, the robe has a 15 second cast time. this means that if you're on a raid and your chanters aren't slackers *cough* you'll have clarity 2, and in the time you could use the robe's effect you could sit down and meditate enough to cast cadeau of flame (155 mana). hope this clears up why this effect is useless.

Anyone have a pic of this worn? On erud pref. All black sounds nice, I like the look of Rainment now on my erud mage :)

#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 24 2001 at 3:01 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) What the heck...this is better than our damn planes robe /sigh

Well this robe should cut the apothic robe up into tiny pieces, kick it around then throw it in the trash for how difficult it is to get. Why? If you have EVER been to ToV you'd know. There have been ToV raids going on on my server for about 3 months now, daily. Take a guess how many ancient silk robes have dropped....0.00000. How many apothic robes drop DAILY? Almost one daily with the new minibosses, and when was the last time a rev conned red to a level 60? Cause plenty of stuff in ToV cons red to me and hits everyone for 400s with a 300 damage AE (regular mobs). This robe is a much much rarer drop off of much much harder mobs, AND you need good faction with giants/tormax, AND you need to throw in 3 fairly rare gems, AND for a mage to even be invited to ToV on my server they have to be pretty much level 60 for mala, or if they are desperate at least 55 for CoH...don't have that kinda requirements on hate. Honestly, why should the hate robe be better? Thats like whining that CTs robe is better then the hate robe...c'mon.

What do you expect it to be the newbie guild trainer robe? As much as Verant sometimes messes up in their risk vs reward this is not one of those times. This robe should be (and I agree it is) better than our planar robe. ToV is much much harder than the planes.

2 words (maybe more):
Especially the effect *drool* I'm sure it looks uber too
# Apr 22 2001 at 8:26 AM Rating: Default
all black robe
RE: look
# Aug 23 2001 at 4:41 AM Rating: Default
it's not entirely black, there's some green in it. it looks exactly like the necro kael robe, except darker. here, have a look for yourself.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 22 2001 at 2:14 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Everyone says that the effect sucks, but it is very useful for DS'ing pets since they don't get it with Boon of Immolation.
