Haha mage robe almost purely exists to deter bow from being excessively broken. If they fix bow E in some way they could completely revamp mage robe. Would be more interesting.
Let´s say you fight against bunch of melee users. One mage robe, and rip their hellion jackets, buffs and everything. It´s just stupid. It even removes shoes effects.
Mage robe destroys many builds and weapons.
Me playing axe, dealing with mage robe is the worst. It purges my W, shoes, whatever leather armor i am using, and you know what´s the best ? Even if i hit one Q, the little bleed that deals like 15 damage or something - that little bleed will purge all my buffs with that mage robe, so it´s not even a matter of skill like with swords ( since you can just stop attacking when they pop the mage robe, if you have fast reflexes / know how fight is gonna progress).
Mage robe gives really high damage boost, purges all crap from your oponents, and when it´s active - your resistances are really high.
Nerf mage please - otherwise it´s gonna be the next cultist robe. If you have armor that counters almost everything, there is a problem
