This robe lowers MP cost by 20%. This allows for more ability uses than all robes except for the Tlatoani’s Shroud, although it can beat the Shroud during prolonged, sustained MP usage with a high-level magic healing pet. It is valuable as a support robe, allowing classes like Priests and Bards to use their abilities more often.

It can also work well as an offensive robe, particularly in combination with expensive and powerful abilities such as the Tablet of the King’s Avatar. Due to the lack of ATT, this robe will usually pale in comparison to endgame robes like the Vesture of Duality. However, this robe is not an endgame robe and can be obtained much more easily.

Compared to the Ritual Robe, a similarly ability-focused robe, this robe will be better for sustained MP efficiency if you have a Pet with decent Magic Heal.

  • The Ritual Robe’s +20 WIS gives +2.0 MP/sec (halved to +1.0 MP/sec while In Combat).
  • The Robe of the Mad Scientist effectively turns each point of MP into 1/0.8 = 1.25 points of MP.
    • With 60 WIS (the max WIS of Wizard and Sorcerer) and the +5 WIS from this robe, you will regenerate 3.75 MP/sec (halved while In Combat).
    • A pet with a level 70 Magic Heal ability gives 8.68 MP/sec (decreased to 4.29 MP/sec while In Combat), totaling 12.43 MP/sec while Out of Combat and 6.17 MP/sec while In Combat.
    • The 1.25x effect from the Mad Robe then effectively gets you +3.1 MP/sec, or +1.54 MP/sec while In Combat, which is better than the MP/sec from the Ritual Robe. This effect is increased with a stronger pet and/or with a max WIS of 75 (achieved with Priest, Necromancer, Mystic, Bard, Summoner).

The benefit of the Ritual Robe is that many abilities scale with WIS, becoming more powerful as you gain more of the stat. With items like Scepters and Tomes, the Ritual Robe can be the superior option.
