The Chanter's Djellaba is a low to mid-ranked mystic armor in Final Fantasy XII that boosts the wearer's Defense by 15 (Zodiac) or 14 (original), Magick Power by 4, and—unusually for mystic armor headgear—Vitality by 5. In the Zodiac versions, it also gives 35 to MP.

Obtain[]

Original[]

In the original PlayStation 2 versions, the Chanter's Djellaba is sold for 1,400 gil by Dyce outside the Tomb of Raithwall, in Rabanastre after defeating Belias, and in Jahara. It is found as a treasure in Zertinan Caverns's Hourglass Basin (very end; 60% chance to appear, 55% chance for gil, 50% chance the item treasure is the Chanter's Djellaba without the Diamond Armlet equipped Map 49 Zertinan Caverns).

Zodiac[]

In the updated Zodiac versions, the Chanter's Djellaba is sold for 1,400 gil by Dyce in Nam-Yensa Sandsea, Tomb of Raithwall, and Balfonheim Port, in Rabanastre after defeating Belias, and in Jahara. It is found as a treasure in Nam-Yensa Sandsea's Simoon Bluff (75% chance to appear, 30% chance for gil, 50% chance the item treasure is the Chanter's Djellaba without the Diamond Armlet equipped), in Tomb of Raithwall's Northfall Passage (80% chance to appear, 30% chance for gil, 50% chance the item treasure is the Chanter's Djellaba without the Diamond Armlet equipped), and in Zertinan Caverns' Sandfalls (90% chance to appear, 50% chance for gil, 50% chance the item treasure is the Chanter's Djellaba without the Diamond Armlet equipped), as well as in the Trial Mode Stage 44 with the Diamond Armlet equipped.

Use[]

The Chanter's Djellaba is a low to mid-ranked mystic armor, giving 15 or 14 Defense depending on version, 4 Magick Power, and 5 Vitality, as well as 35 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 Vitality bonus affects status success and duration, and counts for damage calculation for axes, hammers and hand-bombs, though in the Zodiac versions the Foebreaker board does not have the Chanter's Djellaba, anyway.

In the Zodiac versions, White Mage, Red Battlemage, Black Mage, and Bushi can equip it, and so the Chanter's Djellaba 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.

Etymology[]

The djellaba is a long, loose-fitting outer robe with full sleeves that is worn in the Maghreb region of North Africa.
