"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.

Description

The Book of Spells consists of a wooden staff holding a blue crystal and a magic tome for the off-hand item. The staff has a rope binding it and a faint blue glow coming from the crystal; it apparently has immense ice-based powers, or the tome contains information for casting a potent freezing spell.

Normal

Stat-wise, the Book of Spells gives a good boost to Magic Attack along with a large Magic Defence boost. It lacks any other stat bonuses, and also has a small Accuracy penalty, reducing its use in direct combat.

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 equipment that improves status infliction (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 pieces of status-increasing gear equipped, he'll have a 337.5% chance to Freeze with Swift Slash, ensuring a Freeze on even 70% resistant foes.

The Book of Spells can also unleash Enchantment to inflict the Enchanted status on foes, which help increase physical damage dealt. It is worth noting that as Enchantment does no damage, it will not break the Freeze.

The Book of Spells grants resistances to Ice, Water and Wind, none of which become immunities 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.

The Alt Book of Spells has good Magic Attack and average Attack. Like its normal counterpart, it is notable for its impressive Freeze chance; while it hits 50% instead of 75% at Level 5, this can be readily combined with status-boosting gear to allow NoLegs to freely freeze any non-resistant foe, and even have a good shot at Freeze-resistant ones.

It is also capable of randomly summoning a Hardy Gloop, which will apply Enchanted to a random target. While this seems useful, the inconsistent nature of it means it is not a reliable source of Enchanted. The Book of Spells may unleash Zephyr Crystals when attacking; while this has a chance of Stunning, it will also break the Freeze on the target, making single-target attacks less useful with it.

The Alt Book of Spells resists Wind, Earth, Stagger, and Confuse. Only the Stagger and Confuse resistances become immunities at Level 5.
