Cloaks of the Reanimated

The Cloaks of the Reanimated offer one of the best, if not the best, back protection for froob characters. The final 5/5 upgrade has a level 190 and up (Title Level 6) requirement, but characters of any level can use the 1/5, 2/5, 3/5 and 4/5 versions if they meet the Ability requirements.
Better still, it improves on the bonuses from the Cloak of the Reanimator.
The end result is Nano and Casting bonuses as good as or better than Neleb's Nano-master Robe, more than twice the ACs, and special bonuses that are unique to each type of Cloak.
The six types have four different ability requirements between them, with three of the cloaks based on Intelligence + Psychic (Healer, Illusionist and Summoner), one Agility + Sense (Jester), one Agility + Strength (Ranger), and one Strength + Stamina (Gladiator). Note that despite the Cloaks having names describing professions, there are no profession requirements.

At One Light, the cloaks give 800 AC to all eight damage types, with +50 All AC for each additional Light up to 1000 AC at Five Lights. The requirements go from 490/550 to 730/730.

Tradeskill Process[edit]

The combination of items in Anarchy Online works as follows:

Open the tradeskill window (Shift + T). Here you can place the two items you want to combine in the left and middle part. The resulting Item will be shown in the right area. Missing skills, or non possible combinations will be shown below. A detailed look on the resulting item is possible with a simple shift-left-click on it. It is recommended to have free inventory space before combining items, else the item will end in the overflow window.

This example shows the creation of a Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator. All other upgrades are built the same way, substituting the proper soul in the second step.

Reanimator's Cloak + Soul Ripper = Grey Cloak + Soul of the Reanimator Skills:
Reanimator's Cloak Soul Ripper Grey Cloak and Soul of the Reanimator None
Soul of the Reanimator + Soul of the Gladiator = Soul of the Reanimated Gladiator Skills:
Soul of the Reanimator Soul of the Gladiator Soul of the Reanimated Gladiator None
Empty Spirit Vest + Soul of the Reanimated Gladiator = Gladiator's Spirit Vest Skills:
Empty Spirit Vest Soul of the Reanimated Gladiator Gladiator's Spirit Vest None
Grey Cloak + Gladiator's Spirit Vest = Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator (1/5) Skills:
Grey Cloak Gladiator's Spirit Vest Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator None



At this step, the most basic cloak is made with the most basic bonuses. The upside of this is that the cloak has lower requirements to use. You can upgrade the cloak to increase its buffs and the requirements. When the final upgrade is complete the cloak opens up a special ability to use when activated.

Soul of the Ranger + Soul of the Gladiator = Dull Combined Soul Crystal Skills:
Soul of the Ranger Soul of the Gladiator Dull Combined Soul Crystal None
Dull Combined Soul Crystal + Soul of the Healer = Dim Combined Soul Crystal Skills:
Dull Combined Soul Crystal Soul of the Healer Dim Combined Soul Crystal None
Dim Combined Soul Crystal + Soul of the Summoner = Sparkling Combined Soul Crystal Skills:
Dim Combined Soul Crystal Soul of the Summoner Sparkling Combined Soul Crystal None
Sparkling Combined Soul Crystal + Soul of the Illusionist = Shining Combined Soul Crystal Skills:
Sparkling Combined Soul Crystal Soul of the Illusionist Shining Combined Soul Crystal None
Shining Combined Soul Crystal + Soul of the Jester = Shining Combined Soul Crystal Skills:
Shining Combined Soul Crystal Soul of the Jester Awakened Soul Crystal None



From here, you add the awakened crystals, one at a time to the cloak to upgrade it. The cloak can be upgraded 4 times from its initial form. The full process is shown here to show the differences in each upgrade of the cloak.



Shining Combined Soul Crystal + Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator (1/5) = Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator (2/5) Skills:
Awakened Soul Crystal Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator None
Shining Combined Soul Crystal + Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator (2/5) = Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator (3/5) Skills:
Awakened Soul Crystal Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator None
Shining Combined Soul Crystal + Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator (3/5) = Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator (4/5) Skills:
Awakened Soul Crystal Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator None
Shining Combined Soul Crystal + Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator (4/5) = Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator (5/5) Skills:
Awakened Soul Crystal Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator Cloak of the Reanimated Gladiator None
