Basic Description by Game
The Blessed Robe increases the wearer's defense by 36. More importantly, the wearer recovers 5 HP at the end of each turn. It can be bought for 7000 coins and sold for 5250 coins.
In Golden Sun, it is sold in an Artifact in Lunpa, and can be equipped by Ivan and Mia. In Golden Sun: The Lost Age, it is sold in Champa, and can be equipped by Jenna and Sheba. In Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, the Blessed Robe is sold in Yamata and can be equipped by Karis, Rief, Amiti, and Himi.
Although hardly the strongest Robe in terms of defensive points, the Blessed Robe is one of the best defensive Robes because of its ability to restore HP. Although a high defensive rating keeps the wearer from taking much damage, the ability to automatically regain lost HP can be more valuable, especially during boss battles.
Between the first two games, there are only four Robes that automatically restore HP (the Blessed Robe, the Oracle's Robe, the Muni Robe, and the Mysterious Robe), and only four Adepts who can wear Robes. For these Adepts, there is no other equipment that can restore HP automatically, making these four Robes among the games' most valuable items. However, each one of the other three robes is a direct upgrade over the Blessed Robe.
In Dark Dawn, the Blessed Robe is not available until after the player can get the superior Muni Robe. However, as there are only three Robes that can restore HP (the Blessed Robe, the Muni Robe, and the Mysterious Robe), the Blessed Robe may still see use. The location means the Blessed Robe can be given to Himi as an immediate upgrade from the Silver Vest that she joins the party with. Whether the player prefers to keep the Blessed Robe for its HP regeneration, or replaces it with a more Defensive bodywear, is up to the player.
