From the wiki:
Strategy and Comments
* Robe is more expensive to upgrade as a comparable Cloak of the same level
* Avoid this item, if possible
Ok, so if the Robe is such a bad item (applies negatives and is more expensive than a Cloak), then why does it exist in the first place?

....if you ask that about the robe what do you think about a DCM?
variety ... you can't just have the good stuff :)

and what about Heaume?
fact is that for the same AC, a Robe is cheaper in upgrading, because the difference is 1 AC.
but for the upgrade costs, a Cloak is cheaper.
I was/am doing some tests for this but haven't finished them, neither am i finished with the Armor wiki yet, just have patience grasshopper

correction: a cloak always is cheaper...
Just checked on my site and saw the results:
: at 880k NW the cloak has 15 AC, and at 800k NW the Robe has 14 AC.
Thanks for the information, Shade.
