This is... not true. I have some good (but not exceptional) gear, and sit very close to 255 without epic or any NToV charisma gear (Iím wearing ancient wurmhide robe, which has no cha). I even split 15/15 int at creation. The biggest gear sacrifice is that Iím still using a crude stein. Iíll easily hit 255 and can trade gear out for more hp/resist fear with like, 3-4 minor item upgrades, which are all infinitely more achievable than PoM robe. (Sky belt, SS arms, kael 8 cha earring). Iím still wearing half loam gear too. With a PoM cloak, which is way more achievable than the robe, Iíd be dumping even more gear for hp/resists.

What is your magelo I can compare to?

Thanks everyone for your input [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

You've all convinced me to go for the SS Robe! As a High Elf, maxing charisma doesn't seem like it will be a problem.

Yeah I think mandatory is a bit of a stretch.

You could get 3 of the 8 CHA by upgrading to Illusionist's Sleeves from Insidious or upgrading Beguiler's Pants to Ice Silk Pants. Then you could get another +8 CHA by upgrading ear from Black Sapphire to Helssen's Prismatic Trinket and getting the HP back +some with Illusionist's Wrist instead of Loam. Also could just get Cloak of Confusion for the extra +11 CHA and lose the +75 mana/+4 int from Hiero Cloak. Seahorse Belt has +4cha/+4 int/+25 mana and only ~6 less hp than Spider Fur.

Point is, there are options.

I don’t keep a Magelo, but my standard kit is (and I think I got it all):

Loam Boots, Gloves, Belt, Arms
Ancient Wurmhide Robe
Bracelet of Quintessence/Zombie Flesh Bracer (the EB/HP/Mana bracer off Draco)
Rod of Glamour/VP Charm Staff
Crude Stein
Kromzek Surveyor Scope
Goblin Gazughi/5/55 Ring
2x Oppaline Earring
Neriad Shawl
+6 neck
Sky Face (+6 Cha)
Insidious Halo
Drake Legs (the +5 Cha one’s)

In all of that, there is only three (?) pieces of gear that aren’t attainable by anyone who is capable of doing up to Island 5 of sky (Robe, VP Staff & Draco bracer) and they aren’t Cha upgrades. I’m at 248 buffed with VP Staff, which has less Cha than the Rod. And like I said, there are some readily available upgrades (Kael Ear, Epic, SS Arms would let me take off the other earring and replace with an EoE or something. PoM Cloak would let me dump the Stein. Heiro cloak and I could be about where I am Cha wise without the Crude Stein).

Now, would it be nice to have the extra 15 Cha from the PoM Robe? Sure. But I had suboptimal point allocation and I’m still at 248 buffed - and 221 int buffed too.

I would spring for the robe that extra charisma to max it is quite nice. My current build is waiting on a earring drop from Chardok 2.0 to finallly fill it out and get maxed CHA self buffed.Heres to hoping!

Sure, just loan me the nearly 200k itíll take (someone is currently selling the Doll for 100k, much less the cards to make a Robe of Distraction). Thatís the point, it isnít a gear requirement that is game changing (like a Fungi, or Haste, or Torpor). Is it worth 200k? I mean, maybe objectively, but thatís a lot of plat for something that isnít game changing. Thatís why itís far from required. I would argue the Cloak or Confusion is more game changing because of the Cha density on a slot that doesnít have much charisma gear.

I think the best 50-100k you can spend would be getting the PoM Cloak.

https://wiki.project1999.com/Cloak_of_Confusion

I'm working on that now...cannot wait to upgrade from Hierophant's.

I'd argue its BiS.
