A robe of protection was a robe that was enchanted to protect the wearer.[1][2]


The magical robes provided different levels of protection, depending on how highly enchanted they were. As mages fought unarmored, these robes were more likely to be worn by them, instead of others that were proficient at wearing armor. However, the robes could still be worn by those of other professions, such as clerics, providing their enchantment was strong enough.[3]

Notable OwnersEdit


In the 1350s DR, a very strongly enchanted robe of protection could be found in Xanathar's outer sanctum. It belonged to the powerful wizard, Kirath, who also carried many other enchanted items.[4] A robe of protection +2 could also be found in the Darkmoon temple's crimson tower.[9]
