At the risk of dragging this thread back on topic... (=D)

Wouldn't the +2 to all stats be far better in the long run than HP regen 1? Even the DCI?

Help me understand in a constructive way, please.

My favorite will always be the +10 stealth, though. I dig free stealth points. Pretty soon, I'm gonna be able to have 120 stealth with zero real skill, I just know it!

At the time I first authored my post, I was going with the first draft of the items, wherein it was +1 to all stats, and the other cloak had +1 HCI, DCI, and SDI.

Both those I would argue pales compared to 1 HP regen. When you think about it, HP Regen basically adds more "oomph" to whatever form of healing you use, which is really powerful. What your Strength starts out at is of no value when you're 1 HP away from dying.

The current, active draft of the items, however, is far more balanced.

I have a Cloak of Death. 3 HCI, 3 DCI, 3 SDI.

+2 All Stats is basically +2 HP, +2 Stamina, and +2 Mana with exceedingly minor bonuses to Damage and Mana Regen. That puts this cloak about on par with a +5 HP Robe, but the effect just ends there. Once you lose 2 HP, 2 stamina, and 2 mana, the robe has essentially been expended for that fight.

On the other hand, even if it's a robe with just HP Regen 1, then every 10 seconds you get another point of HP. It has a notable impact on a fight beyond the first exchange of blows. With the Robe of Power, that becomes even more true since you'll be hitting in melee 3% more often, be hit 3% less often, and deal 3% more damage with spells, possibly causing your damage output to overpower an extra HP Regen 1 and likely preventing at least 1 damage per 10 seconds.

*An Corp Thread*

Sorry for necroing this thread, but I remembered this statement from Magister when I saw this item: Royal Guard Investigator [Replica]

Looks like you came a small step closer to your goal :)

Playing on Drachenfels? Speaking German? Tired of exploring Sosaria alone?

From what I can tell, Ogre Lords are the only faction monsters that have any business mixing it up in PvP in the first place, and the ones summoned by the Cloak of Command are weak. What we sometimes call a cloak - is really a cape.let people discuss the same things over and over again if they want, we don't need to participate.
