Price/Power (1/5)
Too expensive given the limited defense. While I wish it had about 3 more icons.... I feel like it is still worth some minor points

Countermeasures (2/5)
This is a rather unique combination of icons, but I don't see them as being very useful.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Well you could get a Short Sleeved Yellow Tunic- but it would be more for healing. If this goes down in price it could be rather decent,

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Funny, the scrolls from brightvale are so great, but the robes are often limited.

Enchanted Robe offers unique defense at a currently unreasonable price tag. At R98, it is possible that this weapon will make its way to the Shop Wizard, but many more will need to restock first for that to happen.

2 icons of offense and 9 icons of defense is not amazing, but not complete junk either. This weapon fringes on being useful given the right price, which is yet to be met.

Enchanted Robe's combination of Fire, Dark, and Water defense makes it unique. The only other weapon offering defense for those three icons would be Full Scorchio Armour. That's an amazing feat given almost 3,000 different weapons in the game.

Now the question is, when exactly would anyone need to block Fire, Dark, and Water at the same time at the level of play where Enchanted Robe may actually be competitive? Flaming Blooble Potion? Cloudy Wand of Storms?

Remember, Enchanted Robe's usefulness hinges on its ability to maximize its defensive potential, and that means the opponent will likely need two weapons to utilize all three of types blocked by the robe. That is about as situational as any weapon can get.

Overpriced, way too situational, and a little bit underpowered all in all. Next weapon please.

Price/power (0/5): Extremely expensive for what it does, and the price won't be dropping anytime soon.

Tactical (2/5): Blocks a nice array of icons, though it doesn't really counter any specific weapons. However, at this price level you'd expect it to block at least another icon type rather than attack with a negligible 2 earth icons (which are easily blocked, if not shrugged off).

Bonus (0/1): Quite an array of spells indeed, though I wouldn't say the robe is strong enough.

Closing remarks: Get one of the standard alternatives to full armour, i.e. Studded Leather Cuirass, Shiny Shoal Shell Shield, etc.
