A kaleidocera cape is one part of a broader set of kaleidocera equipment. It is notable for having the highest resistances of any back equipment available in Caves of Qud.

Rokhas will always have a kaleidocera cape equipped.

Kaleidocera Equipment

This section is an excerpt from Kaleidocera krakows#Kaleidocera Equipment.

Kaleidocera equipment, including the kaleidocera cape, kaleidocera muffs, and kaleidocera krakows, have some of the highest all-around resistance values of any equipment in the game. Each piece of equipment also grants a bonus to Ego and a small chance to refract light-based attacks.

Kaleidocera equipment can be obtained by butchering the corpse of a kaleidoslug. However, the kaleidoslug has only a 6% chance of dropping a corpse when it is killed. Once a corpse is obtained, butchering the corpse guarantees one piece of kaleidocera equipment, but the specific piece of equipment obtained is random - each has a 1-in-3 chance of being butchered from the corpse.
