Crococape is for melee chars and that is a fact, but its res are VERY bad (30 res to air fire water IIRC).
This is a stupid thing since melee chars need more res than ranged chars.
I mean, it's not a problem for a Cra go around with res about ~60ish, but an Iop/Sram with those res is ridiculous. Come on! Even a lvl 150 cloak (wa cloak, it's even orange not yellow) has better res than a lvl 193 MELEE cloak.
Cape Rice has slighty better res than Crococape, but still shit.
