Version 0.24: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.
A robe woven of living vines. The vines form a symbiotic relationship with their wearer, greatly increasing their regeneration, but preventing them from being healed by potions.

Regeneration (Regen+7)
Prevents healing from potions while worn


The robe of Vines[1] increases its wearer's regeneration rate by an amount equivalent to 7 amulets of regeneration, providing an incredible bonus of 2.8 HP per turn. This artefact can be extremely useful for recovering HP quickly. Note that, unlike an amulet of regeneration which only kicks in after the wearer first attains full health, the healing effect of this garment is immediate upon being equipped.

While the robe can provide survivability during battle, a robe with an ego like resistance or Archmagi may be better for general use depending on your character. Alternatively, a set of heavier armour and a solid array of resistances can reduce incoming damage enough to make your base regeneration rate perfectly acceptable, though even then the robe can still be useful to carry around for a quick heal.

Deep dwarves do not regenerate and gain no benefit whatsoever from wearing the robe of Vines, and ghouls and bloodless vampires can only benefit from the robe if there are no monsters in sight. Vine stalkers, mummies, and lichform characters, on the other hand, can freely wear this item with no drawbacks since they cannot recover HP with potions to begin with.



  • Prior to 0.18, this robe was +5 and Regen+10 (that is, a +4 HP per turn regeneration rate).
  • The robe of Vines was introduced in version 0.17.
