"Oi cat, put that book down. I'm certain you can't read."
―Lance, Epic Battle Fantasy 5
Book of spells 5

The Book of Spells is a Ice-elemental cat toy available for NoLegs' in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.


The Book of Spells consists of a wooden staff holding some sort of magical crystal and a magic tome for the off-hand item. The staff has a rope binding it. The crystal apparently has immense ice-based powers or alternatively the tome contains information for casting a potent freezing spell.

The Book of Spells is a weapon mainly focused around its high chance of inflicting Freeze, reaching an impressive 75% chance to land the Status Effect at level 5. When this is combined with either Wet or Chill (which the weapon itself can passively apply thanks to its ability to randomly cast Hail) and status chance increasing equipment (i.e. Flame Suit and Captain's Hat) the Freeze chance can reach ludicrous levels. For instance, if a foe has Wet/Chill and NoLegs has both status increasing gear equipped, he'll reach a ludicrous 337.5% chance to Freeze with Swift Slash, granting a guaranteed Freeze on even 70% resistant foes. The Book of Spells can also unleash Iceshard, though this is generally a negative side effect since it can break any Freeze inflicted through the Blade Blitz tree or normal attacks.

Stat wise, the Book of Spells gives a good boost to Magic Attack along with a massive Magic Defence boost. However, it lacks any other stat bonuses, somewhat reducing its use in battle. It grants resistances to Ice, Water and Wind, none of which become immunities when maxed.

Found inside a chest in the Freezeflame Dungeon, the chest is on the other side of a layer of slippery ice, either solve the slippery ice puzzle or use the Spiked Boots.
