The cloak of evasion, also known as the clothes hiding and evade cloak, is a recurring piece of clothing in the Dragon Quest series. This garb increases the frequency of evading attacks from the usual 1⁄64 (~1.56%) to 1⁄8 (12.5%) (see below for exceptions.)
The cloak of evasion is a long-sleeved, green tunic with light blue trim which reaches down to the wearer's ankles and includes a hood. The shade of green varies in each game, ranging from light green to dark forest green. There is a jewel (blue in earlier games, red in later) in the front and runes sewn into the fabric, which aid in evasiveness. To complete the look, a light blue sash is tied around the waist. The cloak is often a mid-ranking clothing designed for spellcasters and other characters who cannot wear heavier armor.
Capable of being equipped by all vocations, the cloak of evasion (called the evade cloak in the GBC Version) provides +20 defence and +20% evasion in the NES Version, and +23 defence and +12.5 evasion in all subsequent versions. It can be purchased in Norvik for 2,900 gold and sold for 2,175.
