Robe of the
master monk
( [ )
Item Type Body armor
Artifact? Yes
Weight 30s
Danger Level 11
Material Nonmetallic

The robe of the master monk is a non-guaranteed artifact. It boosts Willpower and speed, and grants a host of useful intrinsics. It appears as a robe when unidentified, but can be distinguished from normal robes by its unusual weight.


It is quite useful, offering speed, Willpower, and many intrinsics, including the coveted resistance to paralysis. Possibly the best armor for Monks, apart from the Robes of resistance. Other classes might prefer armor with better PV.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

It can be received as a Monk crowning gift.

It can also be granted as a precrowning gift or a reward for making use of a potion of uselessness, generated in a surge of power or greater vault, or generated as random loot (albeit very rarely).
