Cloaks of the Reanimated
The Cloaks of the Reanimated are some of the best back items 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, these cloaks improve on the bonuses (except Max nano that is decreased for some versions) from the Reanimator's Cloak that is one of the ingredients in the tradeskill process below, with 1/5-4/5 cloaks additionally removing the minimum level requirement of 75 (although ability requirements are increased).
The end 5/5 result is Nano and Casting bonuses as good as or better than Neleb's Nano-master Robe (except the loss of Max Nano for several versions, as well as -1% nano cost for all versions except Illusionist), twice and a half the ACs, and special bonuses that are unique to each type of Cloak.
The six types have four different ability requirements between them, with one ability having a higher requirement than the other for 1/5-4/5 upgrades (for 5/5 both ability requirements are 730). Three of the cloaks based on (higher requirement ability + lower requirement ability) Intelligence + Psychic (Healer, Illusionist and Summoner), one Agility + Sense (Jester), one Strength + Agility (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 ability requirements for higher/lower go from 550/490 for 1/5 to 730/730 for 5/5.

Icons and 5/5 Buffs
The top part of the table contains icons with hyperlinks to 1/5 - 5/5 cloaks.
The buff values are given for the 5/5 (i.e. the maximum upgrade) of each cloak.
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.
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.
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.
