Expected a bit more, tbh. This is only marginally superior, if at all, to the Imbued Netherweave Robe. Sure with sockets this can be made stronger, but a very small upgrade and you likely need Rare+ gems to make it better.
Still, not bad all in all, a better upgrade than Gloves of Oblivion are over Tempest's Touch ^_^
I checked the three "readily available" (i.e. drops at reasonable rate in any of the higher 5 man instances) socketed robes for my Warlock:
These, our DS3 robes
, the mages DS3 robes
, non-set caster robes
Created two gem sets to my liking for each robe as to gain the socket bonus. One crit heavy (I'm destro at the moment) and one spelldamage heavy. Each set had 2 green and 1 blue gem (rarity).
End result of stats:
Oblivion Crit: 34 Sta, 25 Int, 37 Dmg, 15 Crit
Oblivion Dmg: 35 Sta, 25 Int, 50 Dmg, 3 Crit
Incanter's Crit: 25 Sta, 26 Int, 22 Spi, 34 Dmg, 27 Crit
Incanter's Dmg: 25 Sta, 26 Int, 22 Spi, 46 Dmg, 15 Crit
Warp Infused Crit: 30 Sta, 28 Int, 12 Hit, 34 Dmg, 19 Crit
Warp Infused Dmg: 31 Sta, 28 Int, 12 Hit, 47 Dmg, 7 Crit
So, if you neglect set boni (maybe you prefer the other 4 set pieces for the full set bonus or you would only have 3 pieces yet) for me it seems the Warp Infused Drape is the best rounded package. As well for a more crit based as for a more spell damage based build.
All in all - normal gems aren't that expensive, you could always socket all 3 if you have them and chose to your liking ;-)
Stats being changed next patch from:
Equip: Increases damage and healing done by magical spells and effects by up to 33.
Equip: Increases damage and healing done by magical spells and effects by up to 40.
(at least on the ptr anyway)
Can the robes and the shoulders drop off of Murmur at the same time?
These dropped last night, along with the shoulders. I got them both :)
THE BIG ROBE DELEMMA !
-> Aldor (Revered) reputation vendor, Shattrath
-> Final boss Shadow Lab
3: Warp Splinter:
-> Last boss Botanica
(Gems used are either 8 int. or 9 spell dmg)
*** => 2 Yellow gems (8int) and 1 Red gem (9 spell dmg) give you the +4 Int socket bonus => 38 Int & 38 Spell Dmg
I personaly choose for nr. 1, as an Aldor Frost, PVE Mage I think the best balance between having high mana, and a good amount of spell dmg, is here.
PS; dont forget to click + on the comment rating please ;-)
Ok this happened two times to me now, mages needing it over warlocks.
I really think blizzard should add a `Classes: Warlock' on this robe, because hell no i will run shadow labyrinth for thr 25th time just because mages think 'it's just cloth, it has nothing to do with locks'
This is part of the warlock Oblivion dungeon set. If a non-warlock needed this over a warlock, they'd definitely be a ninja.
This is the best pre-raid robe for a Shadow Priest if you don't have Tailoring.
With 3 Runed Living Rubies it provides an impressive +67 spell damage. Not quite as good as Frozen Shadoweave, but if you're not a tailor... =)
lol funny thing happened to me today. this robe got droped and a lock was happy to get it. by accident or by other strange consequence lock pressed greed instead of need. i am a fire 70 mage and i greeded. everyone greeded so luckily i got the robe. sorry for lock :(. great robe for me untill i get something better. (i got all the loot from murmur-greeded for everyhting and got everything(i guess i am a lucky bitch))
i would take these even as a mage because with how i play i think the mage set robes just suck although having said that if it was a good upgrade for a lock in the group i would pass on it
70 for an hour
First dungeon Run
The robe as wel as the spaulders drop
I'm the only one there.........
I seriously think random drops are for suckers. This goes back to when I needed one piece to complete my magister's and a warlock needs and beats me, after running Scholomance 100 times.
I'd rather run through battlegrounds and skill up my pvp and earn honor for good gear.
Got the Robe on my second run.
Now to shoot for the rest of the set!
I've run shadowlabs about 9 times in the last 3 days for my warriors shoulders set piece(none yet). I've had this drop 3 times so far(and no locks in the group!). Kinda wish these things weren't BoP :(
Got this and shoulders on my first run! My group wiped but my dps managed to finish him off so it was well deserved.
got it on my first run ;) tho its not so good dps stats on it :/. Its almost on line with a green item.
i got both to drop on a single run
With the time I've wasted trying to get these pants, I could have had my Grand Marshal's Robes by now. I'm not going to run anymore; just grinding AV now.
Not to mention finding a worthwhile group; 90% of the time someone suddenly has to go raid with their guild, and by suddenly I mean they knew it was coming up but started a PUG anyways. Worthless.
never drops, shadow labs 36 times now and it doesnt drop
A lock i know has run Shadow Labs soooo many times after the robe and shoulders, and never had them drop. Last night we helped a noob warlock down murmur (he had tried 6 times with a pug and failed miserably on the easiest boss in outland) (also in agreement was to share the loot fairly should both pieces miraculously drop together) - we went in and downed Murmur without effort and both pieces dropped - before we'd even mana'd up the noob lock went and looted Murmur and rolled Need on both pieces, forcing my friend to Need roll too...the noob warlock won both. it was his first run...
I may not have gone to the extent of 36 runs as someone posted, im around mid 20's now and getting seriously tired of this instance. So after around 25 runs i remain 0/25 in both these robes and that sword of horrid dreams or w/e. Seriously to all who Plan on getting these robes within a few runs all i can seriously say is good luck. Something is seriously wrong, i run it without a hunter a few times, Boom that spear drops back to back, soon as hunter joins in it seems that it no longer appears. At first i thought that guy who posted something about the loot tables being messed up was crazy but im very quickly starting to agree. I hate this instance now and have basically decided 1 more time and im through; considering all the other valuable stuff i could of done over the past month and a half or w/e ive spent running this damn place, and the time wasted putting together a decent pug. Hey what do yeh know, maybe it will be like my Enchant Wep spellpower formula i farmed, 1 more tries the charm i guess. Anyway to all who plan on giving it a shot all i can say is good luck to you!

Very nice robes - I saw them drop once in all my runs in SL - luckly no lock was there and got them for my shadow priest - shoulders dropped the same night. I was one run out of many since I am exalted with lower city and only one drop
Unless a tailor - these robes will last you a long time - think tier5 if you are ever lucky to get that.
On the other hand priest chest and shoulders never dropped for me.
i done millions of shadow labs run and that robe doesnt even exist in the loot table.
P.S getting exalted soon with lower city.... :(
I got these on my first run through. It seems that was pretty damn lucky. Now I have no idea what gems to use for the sockets.
i think that he was talking about the imbued robes, and some locks dont care bout int nearly as much as mages
As a warlock that runs 5 man instances regularly, I can easily say that they are great additions to a balanced party.
(1) Pally for heals, blessings and auras
(2) Warrior or druid for tank
(3) Mage or Shammy, depending on the need for cc or totems
(4) Lock for cc, dps, and soulstone sexyness
(5) SPriest for heals, mana regen, dps, and extra shadow damage for the lock.
My damage increases dramatically with the dots and debuffs applied by the spriest, as well as those with blue bars don't have to drink nearly as often, which reduces down time.
Don't discount spriests as a viable instancing or raid spec. Try one and you might like it.
I was lucky enough to experience a double set drop on Murmur, both the shoulders and the chest.
I cried out "YES!" And ofcourse needed on both items. Then all of a sudden... when all others had greeded the shadow priest pushed need.
I lost the robe to that damn priest, I thought to myself oh that sucks, but atleast I got one part, and I can always go again... Now I've done it over 20 times and no drops.
I will never forgive him for that.
I'm not looking for these robes myself (I'm a holy/dis priest), but I've been running with a warlock friend to get them. We've been running it at least once a day and many times, twice. Still no drop on it. I mean at this point I'm wondering if its easier getting him to take up tailoring for the shadowcloth set.
this dropped the other day and a druid needed it and beat me (a lock), this is clearly a lock robe and ALL other classes should let a lock have it before them
bow thats funny y would a druid need it?
I was in a group 2 days ago when the robes droped, and the tarded S. Preist needed em.. I was furious and explained to him that it was for my set , and he told me he didnt care..
Sooo since then if im in a group with a SP who is wearing the robe ( or any oblivion/ warlock piece ) i will be needing on there items as well ><. Paybacks a B*@#$
Similar happened to me... We downed murmur and he dropped The shoulders and Robes of oblivion. Naturally the mage needed them both despite the whole group telling him it was a warlock set. Luckily i won both rolls :D
Need i say more not shadow priest not mage warlock unless there is no warlock in your group or they already have it don't be a noob and don't roll
I dont know why everyone is complaining about who gets what on this robe.. im a warlock myself and when i run a dungeon i already exspect someone to need something that isnt really meant for them because half the people on wow are just greedy bastards who dont care about anyone eles but themselve.. But what are you gonna do about it.. What you should have done is get yourself into a good guild so you wouldnt have to run it with random people that dont give a !@#$..
i dont understand shadow priest and mages who would even roll on this. i saw a mage roll onit over a lock like a #$%^ing idiot. what part of set bonus dont hey understand. last time a check a mage and priest dont have seed of corruption
when i saw a mage say he needed these robes for his water elemental
As a 70 destruction warlock, I need ALOT of +spell damage.. what's the +spell damage with this whole set equiped (not including gems)?
Well you can count it by yourself.
as a deastruction lock i would imagine you would want crit more than spell damage...but anyway..
you people make me depressed. lol..
I've only run shadow labs like 12 times...gonna be revered next run...and i havent gotten anything at all from it...
the spell sword that drops from murmur? dropped twice so far....out rolled both times...not a big deal...
well,i checked everything that murmur drops and i have seen everything drop but these robes and my shoulders...and worse yet, now i realize that i can expect up to 30 runs...when im already sick of this instance...
people $%^&* about how blizard loves warlocks but i think they really hate us...
btw, it DOES drop in regular right? x_x
*joins lfg for shadow labs run* yayyy...
I'm an Spriest, I just got these from Murmur. I wish they had more hit rating (gems can only compensate so much) but they beat my ugly old Imbued Netherweave Robes!
BUT, there were no other clothies to fight for it.
*** Don't group all Spriests together as loot @#$%^s -- If there had been a lock he woulda got first chance at them. ***
Yea if there's a lock in your group that needs it let him/her have it first, got the robe and spaulders on my lock in two runs and i love them so far
I've just been reading these posts and I'm dreading getting ninjaed on these.
I have been looking up the dungeon sets and this Oblivion set is perfect for affliction/demonology locks.
While these might be an upgrade for the Sh.Priests or Mages running with you, they should be going for their own Dungeon sets (like Mana-Etched Regalia).
If they don't have a gear up-grade plan ahead of time, they are foolish and shouldn't be running end-game material. If you don't check out the gear (and bosses!) before a heroic instance, you will never get your Tier armor as you will likely be more of a liability than an asset. It's time for you re-roll, cause you shouldn't go past VC/WC.
The only reason for anybody to need these is if they are an afflic/demo lock, or there isn't one who needs it in the group.
Destruction locks, if you're wondering about being left out, see Mana-Etched Regalia, you need that +crit a lot more than these bonuses!
Hopefully my guild is doing these runs regularly when I soon hit 70. If not, I will have to trust others... and I've been burned enough to know I don't want to do that...
Perhaps we should start a web site dedicated to Blacklisting ninjas and fools!
Bliz should edit the description on there. 45mp5 for Minions not pets! Warlock gear. Indeed.
Notice all the comments that are highlighted yellow (the ones that have been confirmed to be right) are about this set is for locks and locks should get first dibs on them.
I have the gloves im after the robe, if u get dark pact and use imp ALWAYS on phase shift your unstoppable in raids especially on bosses
with dark pact its just like using a mana pot every 10 seconds .. the 2 set bonus on oblivion grants imp 45 mana per 5
imagine tht...ur getting like 1k mana every 5 seconds forever if you have imp + phase shift + dark pact + oblivion 2 set bonus
like many people here, i got these sweet robes taken from me by a mage. his excuse was "the stats were good and i didnt know it was your set" nice, just nice. yup murmur drops another robe u stupid mage
this is dreadmist set all over again
Most fortunate I was.
a group wiped a couple times so two left.
I was invited to join in.
all that was left was last boss.
so my first time in this instance, I get to help with the final boss only.
Robes dropped as well as the slippers.
needing both, I got both. holy priest had better and passed. the mage greeded.
the originals were hoping for Sonic to drop.
only running one other instance that was 60+, I prefer quests.
so my first time in an instance of this level, and only for 5-10 minutes at that, I upgrade two greens for the Robes and Slippers.
having a group that plays to play is what it's all about.
I will run this place many times for the fun of it and hope my group mates get the drops they want.
yeah sure, I got the robes and slippers, but I really wouldn't mind the spaulders either :p
heh, it's a game.
This was the third time I ran SL to get this gear, and the third time a mage rolled need and stole it from me. What is wrong with you people? Is this not a LOCK SET!
Well, yes, it's a warlock set, but most casters doesn't care about it, since they only look at stats, and don't give a crap about set bonus, and they'll probably need it anyway even if they know.
Only warlock pets get bonus from the 2set, since Priest/Shaman/Mage pets is temporary, and hunter pets doesn't use mana far as I know.
Only warlocks have the spell "Seed of Corruption" as far as I know, so the 4set bonus should only apply to them.
Now, if there is something you don't understand about that, feel free to piss all warlocks off by needing on a set that is meant to be for them. I'll be needing on your set then, since that clearly isn't meant for you if you don't think this is meant for us.
1) Warlock that needs.
2) Another clothie
3) Some other guy like Moonkin druid or elemental shaman
4) Greed roll
Btw, I've had Robe and Shoulders drop 2 times each of Murmur, once both together, and guess what? I passed. Didn't want the robe, because I could make Frozen Shadoweave Robe a week later, and I already had shoulders. Oh, Sword has also dropped, but passed that to, since I didn't need it, but the mage did.
Now, please let the warlock have them if he needs, if you have one in group, if he doesn't, or you don't have one, feel free to take.
You have to be 70 correct?
This just dropped and a priest rolled against me-im a lock- its not a PRIEST iteam this is for locks-unless you dont have a lock in your party do not need unless your a dip !@#$ :P
Got it on my Shadow Priest. (Calm down, no warlocks in group, or even other casters)
Priority should go to Warlocks (it is THEIR set), but right after that all other casters should get even priority.
I will say that this set is VERY nice Shadowpriest gear as it doesn't have any wasted +crit, and has a lot of spell hit that will put you near the hit cap pre-kara.
I've been trying for this set and have run reg SL about 10 times now and no drop. Very frustrating!
