Flairs are a type of equipment in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5. Flairs typically appear as a variety of small trinkets and badges worn over the character's clothing, with their position on the character based on which flair slot they are equipped in; in EBF5, the category was expanded to feature familiars (which fly near the character) and miscellaneous effects like a painting on the face, which appear at the same spot in any slot.

Unlike other equips, up to 3 flairs can be equipped simultaneously by each party member. While most equipment can be upgraded to level 5, Flairs cannot be upgraded past level 3 but they require fewer items to be upgraded. While a Flair's bonus tends to be less powerful than other pieces of equipment, some have unique effects not seen in other types of equipment. Flairs can be worn by any member of the party.

Common Effects

Most flairs can be categorized into specific groups based on their properties, though some would fit into several groups at once:

  • Resistance — Provides an elemental resistance and one or two status resistance(s) associated with the element.
  • Stat Boost — Gives a stat boost, usually only for one stat and not that as strong as a proper piece of equipment.
  • Auto Status — Has a chance to inflict a (usually positive) status on the user at the beginning of players' turn, except the starting turn of the battle.
  • Summon — Has a chance to activate a summon/auto-skill for free at the beginning of players' turn, including the first turn. (There are only a handful of these in EBF5, and are unique to each flair.)
  • Status Override — Overrides chosen weapon's status effect, together with its infliction chance and length. Notes:
    • Weapon's stat debuffs (technically a separate slot) and other special effects are unaffected and will still work.
    • When several flairs of this type are equipped, only the leftmost one applies the override.
    • Contrary to what the in-game description implies, the weapon doesn't necessarily need an inherent status for the flair to take effect.
    • These are best used in advanced strategies, such as enabling a weapon to inflict a certain status effect to an enemy that resists the element of the skills normally associated with the status effect.
  • Defend Upgrade — Only seen in EBF5, Flairs with this effect apply a positive status or a buff when the Defend tactic is used (they won't, however, trigger when the Defend status is obtained from other sources). This effect is typically only unlocked when the flair is maxed. This group often overlaps with Auto status, providing a non-random way to get the same status. Several pieces of equipment that give Defend upgrades can be used at once, and the bonuses will stack.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

There are 36 flairs in total, 4 of which are exclusive to the Steam release of the game and the Premium Pack.
