"Oi cat, put that book down. I'm certain you can't read."
―Lance mocks NoLegs's use of the Book of Spells, Epic Battle Fantasy 5

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

Description

The Book of Spells is a magic tome with a dark brown cover and yellowed pages with illegibly small text. Its associated weapon is a short staff made of brown wood bound with a tan rope. The staff has a "C"-shaped head with a pointed blue crystal mounted on it; the latter emits a faint glow.

While the weapon's description mentions its "intense freezing power", it is unclear if this is a property of the staff itself or an incantation written in the book.

Normal

Stat-wise, the Book of Spells gives a good boost to Magic Attack along with a large Magic Defence boost - the latter is tied with the Leaf Shield and only surpassed by the Riot Shield as the highest of any cat toy. However, it's not particularly effective in direct combat; it has a small Accuracy penalty, NoLegs generally favors physical attacks over magic attacks, and he has no natural Ice skills to take advantage of its elemental boost.

The main draw of the Book of Spells is its high chance of inflicting Freeze with weapon-elemental skills; when fully forged, it has an impressive 75% chance to land the Status Effect. Combining this with either Wet or Chill (the latter of which can be passively applied by the cat toy's ability to randomly summon Hail between turns) and equipment that improves status infliction (i.e. the Flame Suit and the Captain's Hat) gives NoLegs an astonishing 337.5% chance to inflict Freeze with Swift Slash, guaranteeing a Freeze even on 70% resistant foes. Applying Good Luck and Bad Luck (such as via Firecrackers) can push the status infliction still higher.

The Book of Spells can also unleash Enchantment with its weapon-elemental skills, applying the Enchanted status to foes in order to increase physical damage dealt. Since Enchantment does no damage, it will not break the Freeze; this enables NoLegs to quickly set up a devastating damage combo from a physically-inclined ally.

The Book of Spells grants resistances to Ice, Water and Wind, becoming immune to none of them at Level 5.

Equip Remix

While more compatible with offense and less frosty of a weapon in Equip Remix, the Alt Book of Spells continues to have a very powerful asset in striking all foes with Freeze. It's a Wind-based cat toy with good Magic Attack and average Attack, but - like its normal counterpart - it is most notable for the impressive Freeze chance on its weapon-elemental skills. This can be readily combined with status-boosting gear and other status effects to allow NoLegs to freely Freeze any non-resistant foe, and even have a good shot at Freeze-resistant ones.

Aside from Freezing foes, the Alt Book of Spells' weapon-elemental skills may also unleash Zephyr Crystals; while this has a Stun chance and benefits from its elemental boost, it will also release a Frozen target, making single-target attacks less useful with it. Additionally, it randomly summons a Hardy Gloop between turns to apply Enchanted to a random target; although this seems useful, it's too inconsistent to be relied upon.

The Alt Book of Spells resists Wind, Earth, Stagger, and Confuse. Only the latter two will become an immunity at Level 5.

The Book of Spells is found inside a chest in the Freezeflame Dungeon, on the other side of a layer of slippery ice. To reach the chest, either solve the Slip-N-Slide puzzle or use the Spiked Boots.
