The Celebrant's Miter is a mid to high-ranked mystic headgear in Final Fantasy XII that boosts the wearer's Magick Resist by 50, Magick Power by 6 (which is less than the preceding mystic hats offer), and—unusually for a mystic armor piece—Speed by 5. In the Zodiac versions, it also gives 90 MP.

Obtain[]

Original[]

In the original PlayStation 2 version, the Celebrant's Miter is sold for 10,700 gil in Balfonheim Port after the party has the Treaty-Blade. It is also found as a treasure in Barheim Passage's The Zeviah Span (on the middle of the bridge; 70% chance to appear, 50% chance for gil, 50% chance the item treasure is the Celebrant's Miter without the Diamond Armlet equipped Map 02 Barheim Passage), Cerobi Steppe's North Liavell Hills (50% chance to appear, 80% chance for gil, 10% chance the item treasure is the Celebrant's Miter with the Diamond Armlet equipped Map 04 Cerobi Steppe), and Feywood's Ice Field of Clearsight (very middle of the southern border; 30% chance to appear, 50% chance the treasure is the Celebrant's Miter without the Diamond Armlet equipped Map 45 The Feywood).

It is also rarely stolen from the Chimera Brain.

Zodiac[]

In the updated Zodiac versions, the Celebrant's Miter is sold in Balfonheim for 10,700 gil after the party has the Treaty-Blade. It is a treasure in Ridorana Cataract's Echoes from Time's Garden (75% chance to appear, 50% chance for gil, 50% chance the item treasure is the Celebrant's Miter without the Diamond Armlet equipped). It is still a rare steal from the Chimera Brain.

Use[]

Celebrant's Miter is a mid to high-ranked mystic hat, giving 50 Magick Resist, 6 Magick Power, and 5 Speed, as well as 90 MP in the Zodiac versions. Mystic armor offer magick-related bonuses that affect all types of magickal actions, from casting black magick to damage an enemy, to casting white magick to heal the party. Magick Power is also a factor when determining damage dealt by katana, staves, and maces. The Speed bonus has a minimal effect on Charge Time, but also affects damage from bows, ninja swords, and daggers. However, in the Zodiac versions, the Archer and Foebreaker boards that use these weapons do not unlock mystic armor.

In the Zodiac versions, White Mage, Red Battlemage, Black Mage, and Bushi can equip it, and so the Celebrant's Miter is only useful to buy if the player has chosen any of these License Boards for their party. In The Zodiac Age versions, after fighting Belias the player can choose two License Boards per party member; it is usually a good idea to pair jobs that use two different types of armor for versatility.

As the Celebrant's Miter offers less Magick Power than preceding mystic hats, and its Speed bonus is probably not worth prioritizing, the player likely has better options available for endgame spellcaster gear. Taking a trek to the Nabreus Deadlands, the player can find Dead Bones to procure the superior Golden Skullcap, the second-best mystic hat in the game. However, in the original PlayStation 2 version, the miter is also found in the optional part of Barheim Passage, from where the player could get it much earlier than it is available in in the shop. By the time the player can buy it, superior mystic hats are available from the same shop, and so it is probably not worth buying one at that point.

Etymology[]
