Desirability

Along with providing mediocre physical defense and electricity resistance, the robe of Clouds randomly generates clouds of thin mist and rain around you. The rain occasionally turns dry tiles into shallow water and shallow water into deep water, potentially cutting off areas to non-flyers or sinking items out of your reach. This is more obnoxious than useful for most playable species, but merfolk only benefit from turning the world aquatic, while Fedhas Madash worshipers can use their god-gifted abilities to dry up areas you accidentally made inaccessible or carve out water mazes enemies must navigate to reach you. All other characters who find it will likely only wish to wear it sparingly, using it to generate defensive moats outside of combat, or for the electricity resistance if no other source is available. For general use, look for something with better defensive stats and intrinsics.

The clouds of mist do nothing themselves, but do prevent the generation of other kinds of clouds. These may block the line of effect of your Cloud spells, but can also provide safe areas to stand in to avoid dangerous clouds.

History

0.23 will change the robe's properties, removing the flight and mist generation and giving it cloud immunity and the ability to evoke storm clouds.
