The Most Interesting of the New Crown Clothes

I'm actually not wearing any crown clothes at the moment. I've gone pretty much with straight death wizard clothes from Dragonspyre. The one thing I miss though is seeing "resist" floating above me when I get hit with any spell instead of when it's just a death spell.

You see, the Astral Hat of the Helephant use to give me 8% shielding to all spells, and the Master's Garment of the Triton gave me an extra 10% shielding on top of that. Interestingly enough, NONE of the old school crown shoes gave shielding. That's what made me so excited about the Warded Footwear shoes from the Dragonspyre collection (not to be mistaken with the Gucci collection) of crown cloths.

Look at that! 6% shielding! No no no, don't look at that nasty -6 to damage. 6% shielding on shoes with a tower shield card! So if you mix these shoes with the two pieces from your old set (which stayed the same through the change, you just can't buy those old crown clothes any more), you're up to 24% damage mitigation . . . not bad.

The second piece of crown clothes that caught my attention were the level 5 shoes from Zeke in Wizard City.

I don't know if a lot of people know this or not, but traps from crown clothes do not overwrite traps from your deck. So I could cast this trap from my crown clothes and not overwrite the hex from my deck. For those who like to one hit bosses in PvE or see "the most damage they can do," then these shoes are pretty exciting. Now there is another set of shoes from the new crown collection in Marleybone with a blue card hex, but let's take a look at it.

The trap percent is actually 10% less than the level 5 shoes from Zeke in Wizard City. If I'm gimping myself for the sake of a card, I might as well go with the level 5 shoes.

Other than those two, as a necromancer, I'm not very excited about the new crown clothes. There's a ton of life wizard stuff to get excited about if you're a life wizard, but other than that. meh. From my point of view, crown clothes are now utlity clothes rather than the best clothes in the game. Use them at your own discretion.

kewl Thomas! i saw those too!

I wrote part three, to my story:

Awakening (Part Three : chapter 3: Baxter finds out and chapter 4: Zeke's betrayal)

Chapter three : Baxter finds out

Back at the Library where everyone was stationed

Baxter paces nervously in one of the rows of scrolls.

Where is he, Baxter thought to him self, I have to go look.

A mander soldier came up to Baxter.

"Hello sir." Said the soldier. "Name's Burk Duhn' kal."

They shook hands, and Baxter went back to pacing.

"I have news on Zah' nul sir." Burk continued. Baxter looked up.

"What news good fellow, I ust know. He could be in grave danger."

Burk leaned up against a nearby shelf shuffling his hands and looking down.

"What is it." Baxter sounded more concerned now. "Bloody boy tell me!"

Burk looked up, then in to the distance. "He is in Krokophinx sir." Then left.

"What!'' Baxter exclaimed. Darn fool's gonna get himself killed! I must hurry!"
Baxter ran out of the shelves of scrolls, got his sword, and dashed out the front door of the library.

What is gonna happen to Baxter out in that storm? Will he find Zah'nul?

To be continued ...

Chapter 4 : Zekes betrayal

Meanwhile in the spiral chamber of Wizard City...

After gathering a slew of items Zeke took his spiral key and opened the door to Krokotopia. As he walks in the chamber, he noticed the doorkeeper, Shar' tali, wasn't there.

"Hello!" He called. Then headed out into the Oasis.

As soon as the storm hit Zeke all of his things he brought, including his old hat had blown off and flew into the breeze. Suprised, Zeke chased after it.

And chased...

And chased...

"Where it be?" Said Zeke to himself, scratching his head.

As some of the sand had cleared away, Zeke had came to notice that he had stumbled onto the ferry to Krokosphinx. Then, some enchantment made it go.
But who? Zeke looked around while the wind was blowing (but dying down some)

He shouted. "Hello dere?"


He was about to shout again, but a figure came from inside the hull of the ferry.
That figure as Zeke presumed is Zah' nul. But as the reader you very well know him as General Kahibi.

"Hello there Zeke." The copy Zah' nul said.

"Why hey dere!" Exclaimed Zeke. "Yer da person dat I've been wantin' ta see!"

"Oh yes I am!" Kahibi Shouted, then put a veil of chains around him and locked him in the cupboard in the hull.

Will Kahibi get the shard to Ash Gorblood? Or will Baxter find him in time and challenge him to a deul? Find out soon.

To be continued ....
