A cloak of protection provides 3 points of AC (higher than other cloaks) and MC3.


No other single piece of armor grants MC3 by itself, making the cloak a strong option for characters without strong ranged attacks, and a viable choice for the ascension kit, if you can do without displacement and have another source of magic resistance.


In Sporkhack, a wizard always start with one of these instead of the cloak of magic resistance.
