Strategy

Any cloak is better than an orcish or dwarvish cloak, but an orcish or dwarvish cloak is still better than nothing. Though it offers no AC when not enchanted, it still offers magic cancellation and protects any suit underneath from rust and destroy armor. If you test unknown scrolls by reading them, an orcish or dwarvish cloak can be useful as a throwaway cloak to catch destroy armor, after which you can put your regular cloak back on.

SLASH'EM

In slash'em, it has an MC of 2.
