Robe question (in General)

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?

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:
Cloak Robe: at 880k NW the cloak has 15 AC, and at 800k NW the Robe has 14 AC.
