Definitely one of the game's top-tier armors. The robes of resistance are light, provide heavy protection, and give a substantial bonus to toughness along with three of the elemental resistances. Classes with the robes as a possible crowning gift should consider getting crowned before visiting the Tower of Eternal Flames, as the robes' fire resistance can be useful.
