They drew a whole dark overlord concept right from jrr tolkien. like they were unispired. I could actully probably find a robe that even looked like that that was prior art. I mean the have people that make movies and privite servers with there own software. I will still like to see if I can call it Merlin's Robe. Should I email blizz with it. I woulder what they would say if i submited it with a gpl stamp. jk.
Copyright is important, but now you are just getting a bit too paranoid about it. The graphic is different enough that the connection is not apparent to anyone except you and the name is "Merlins Robe". Merlin is a public domain character and the rest is "robe" ffs.

Wombat will change the name anyway because the name Merlin doesn't fit into tmw lore.

You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

Your right we should just call it "mage's robe" or "wizards robe"

Computer games don't affect kids, I mean if Pac Man affected us as kids, we'd all be running around in darkened rooms, munching magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic music. Has anybody seen this princess I'm looking for?

Or something more original, like the Arcane Robe of Wisdom.

Only not so dumb.

I looks like a billion mage robes in a billion games. anyways. I've gotten most of the first frames down...ehh kinda. makeing progress but I've never done gear over a full sprite sheet. Tedious process, but came up with a very off idea for a helm.
you can see the sit frame in this example.
