Price/power (3/5): Not too pricey for what it does, though it's fractional.

Tactical (1/5): The key here is to have less than 80 intelligence. 1.75 attacking icons won't make a difference, and the self-inflicted damage is a nuisance. Thus, for beginners, it's almost a viable option, except for the fact that it doesn't counter any common weapons.

Bonus (0/1): The secrets of this robe aren't worthwhile.

Closing remarks: For the most part, you're better off getting a Virtupets X-514 Super Shield. That shield used to be quite expensive, but now it's an amazing bargain.

Price/Power (0/5)
A weapon able to slowly kill yourself. Wow. Why would that require an intelligence boost.

Countermeasures (0/5)
The defense alone isn't even a full 9 icons, that alone is just.. sad.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Anything. Get a Scarab Ring- even it would be better then this

Other Points

Final Thoughts
I suppose if you wear something so elegant when intelligent you feel bad and hurt yourself? I dont know.

Read the description of this weapon. Would a truly wise Neopet really want to use a fairly weak weapon that damages themselves? Absolutely not.

With the intelligence requirement met, this weapons measly 1.75 icon attack gets canceled out by the 1.75 self inflicted attack. Without the intelligence requirement met, this weapon only provides the 8 total icons of defense, which is too weak to be worthwhile. (If entry-level offensive weaponry start out at 9+ icons, defensive weapons had better match this amount at the very least.)

Sophies Magic Hat offers better Dark/Fire/Earth defense, although it is much more expensive compared to Elegant Jewelled Robe. Fish Scale Breastplate is cheaper and slightly better than Elegant Jewelled Robe, but still not amazing itself.

Sometimes the best defense is a good offense. This robe could be easily overpowered with beginner weaponry like Scroll of Ultranova and Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer.
