Although the INT is low for a robe at levels that will attain this, and the fact STR and STA are not High on the agenda I think this is a decent robe. Lets face it how often do our casters think, Wish i had more STR.?
Main plus to this robe however is three slots, place two plus 3ints augs in here or higher. and you have 12INT and a slot to spare too.

Slots seem to be overlooked on items from LDoN but there is alot to be offered, even effect augs at the later levels.

For this robe on a necro, I would suggest the following which should keep you till you are well over 60

Shiny Sandstone of Reconstruction (AUG) 0.0 Wt
Slot types: 3 510 AP Northern Desert of Ro Regeneration V

Peerless Sphere of Fortitude (AUG) +10 Sta 0.0 Wt
Slot types: All 357 AP East Commonlands No Effects 20

Peerless Fragment of Intellect (AUG) +10 Int 0.1 Wt
Slot types: All 357 AP Northern Desert of Ro No Effects 20

510 regen 5 aug in N Ro camp
357 +10 int augment from N Ro camp
357 +10 sta aug from EC camp
150 robe from ef

915 AP

If you can get a good enough group to do the hard ones (tell em quit bein pussies :P) then the pts shouldn't take all that long to get and the robe would have stats of:

AC: +10 Str: +6 Sta: +16 Int: +16 Fire Resist: +5 Disease Resist: +5 HP: +25 Mana: +25
Regeneration +5

Now the AC is low but to a good necro AC is just **** anyway as we try really hard not to get hit (plus the skin line of spells sucks up enough dmg to generally get off a FD for most solo spots)

The biggest issue I see is that with the augs you're talking about is the huge number of adventures you'd have to go on to get them. You're list showed 867 points just from North Ro! At the "recommended" level for this robe (45) that would take a huge amount of time. I have both a 65 enchanter and a 51 ranger that are doing dungeons and at 51, the ranger is only getting around 13 points per normal adventure. Hard adventures only double that. So you're looking at cranking out 67 North Ro adventures just to get the augs you list? By the time you go through that many, this robe is going to be low on the scale of things that you would want.

This robe is similar to the breastplate in Butcherblock. Decent stats for the level recommended and only 150 points. So with some decent work and a good run, you could easily get these in a week or even less. Now, for the time spent on that, these 150 point items are very nice. Those augments that are 300/500/and even more points are more geared to the upper 50's and low 60's crowd, where they can save up some points and get a really nice upgrade to what they have.

I agree that the robe described is a great robe, but I think the time required to get them isn't worth that combination. From what I've seen, it's always best to save up your points for the big items. Less frustrating than spending points on items that you're just going to upgrade later on. The biggest annoyance I've come across is with the nice augments that go into gear that gets replaced.

Also, there is a lot of nice drops in the actual adventure. My ranger just got a bow from a North Ro adventure that was a very nice upgrade. Speed 28, base 20 damage with a +8 damage modifier along with dex +15, wis +10 and a 120 point Flame Arrow proc. I've yet to get it to proc, but I've only used it about 60 shots since I got it. It's new, what can I say.

As I said that was a template, if someone isn't dedicated enough to do as many as it takes to get the item then there are lower ones that would be only a few runs through, use the search feature and look for Type 3.
My post was to inspire thinking of your own for filling in the slots (those just happen to be what I would choose for this robe if I needed it)

So instead of sayin hey, I don't wanna do what it would take to get are some more ideas for augs for this robe for lower levels.....(was assuming 102 pts for a 65 hard adventure on the augs above)

Jagged Ore of Foresight (AUG) 0.0 Wt
Slot types: 3 340 AP East Commonlands Extended Range III
20 (will carry ya to 60+)

Grainy Sandstone of Clarity (AUG) 0.0 Wt
Slot types: 3 340 AP Northern Desert of Ro No Effects 20 (FT1)

Broken Limestone of Focus (AUG) 0.0 Wt
Slot types: 3 60 AP Southern Desert of Ro Spell Haste II (nuff to get gate hasted)

These are just "suggestions", don't slam my suggestions :P make some more that the lower levels might be able to shoot for.

thats wayyyyy too many points to spend on an item as weak as this is.... you'd make it usuable by augmenting, but wouldn't it make more sense to get a better robe out of ldon and augmenting THAT instead?

no, the robes that drop in LDoN suck unless super-rare and then they only have _one_ augment slot.

The sold ones are to make your own custom uber-robe without being in a raid-type guild.

I gave but one simple template...
