Vortex Cloak thoughts

Recommended Posts

To repair the vortex cloak, 1 nightmare fuel = 5% = 22.5 damage absorbed.

Night armor on the other hand cost 5 nightmare fuel to craft and has 750 HP. So 1 nightmare fuel = 150 damage absorbed.

1 Hit from terrorbeak = 50 damage= 2 nightmare fuel to repair the vortex cloak. If for every hit you received from terrorbeak you get to kill 2 or more of them, you are in net gain of nightmare fuel, without any HP lost(thanks to 100% damage absorb). Now you can take a hambat and kill shadow monsters for days. No need for healing/ other armor supply.

The Vortex Cloak doesn't loose durability if a Terrorbeak hits you while wearing this backpack armor, you just take 100% of the damage dealt to you because it's a Shadow Creature and the Vortex Cloak doesn't block damage from Shadow Creatures.

it also damages your sanity as another penalty for wearing something that blocks all damage, I personally would prefer a Log Suit over vortex cloak as larger number of mobs such as vampire bats, bootles, spiders, killer bees, can easliy swarm you and drain your sanity/armour while as Log Suit will still defend you and not drain your sanity and only needs like 2 rope and some wood to make.

It's definitely better since the buff, but I just use Thulecite Crowns instead, especially since we now have a 3rd DLC which I can use to continually reset the Ruins.

I use Crowns as my Head Armor as well, but ever since the buff I have worn the Vortex Cloak almost EXCLUSIVELY in my chest slot due to the fact that attacks don't stun you while wearing it, even at 0%.

Stun immunity is amazing as it doesn’t durability to work, it’s powerful for wig and wolfgang as they keep dealing more dmg without interruption.

The only thing i dislikes that It take backpack slot which mean you can’t put it in your inventory and make hard to choose between krampus sack and the cloak.

I’m surprised people still give it crap still. It’s a backpack that gives you pseudo-godmode and makes you immune to stuns even if it has no durability. Any character can use it now without a sanity drain, though of course Maxwell still benefits the most.
