Hood that doubles the gil obtained after battle.Description
In its first appearance as an equippable item, the Cat-Ear Hood (called Cat Hood in the SNES release), is a helmet exclusive to Relm. It resists Ice, Fire, Thunder, Holy, Earth, and Wind damage, increases Speed by 2, Magic by 4, Defense and Magic Defense by 33, Evasion and Magic Evasion by 10%, and doubles the amount of gil the party earns from enemies.
If the party has gil stolen from them by an enemy, such as Mugbears, the gil they win back at the end of the battle is also doubled. The easiest way to acquire the Cat-Ear Hood is by betting Impartisan in the Dragon's Neck Coliseum and defeating Weredragon, or by betting the Saucer, but this requires the player to defeat a Brachiosaur. Betting a Cat-Ear Hood will reward the player with the Merit Award after defeating a Slagworm.
In the original version, Cat-ear Hood is an accessory, located on the Accessories 20 License in the upper-right corner of the License Board. It increases Vitality by 20 and Speed by 50. It can be bought from the Clan Provisioner for 30,000 gil after attaining the clan rank of High Guardian, or in the Bazaar by trading Virgo Gem x7, Einherjarium x2 and White Incense x2.
In the Zodiac versions, the Cat-ear Hood instead halves Ice- and Wind-elemental damage, increases Speed by 3, and converts the character's License Points (LP) into gil. Gil gained per LP is equal to (Character's Level x 5). It works on reserve party members. Only newly acquired LP are converted, the Cat-ear Hood does not convert any LP the character already has. It also only converts LP from the character that equips it; other characters will continue to earn their LP as usual.
It requires the Accessories 16 license for 70 LP. It can be bought from the Clan Provisioner in Rabanastre after reaching the Brave Companion rank for 50,000 gil, the bazaar by selling White Incense x2, Einherjarium x2, and Virgo Gem x7 for 25,000 gil, from the Hunt Club sidequest, stolen from Fury (rare) in Trial Mode Stage 63, dropped and poached from Spee in Stage 69, dropped by Crypt Bunny in Stage 70, and found in treasure in Stage 86 (with Diamond Armlet equipped).
