Matt & Lance with the Mage Hat.

The Mage Hat is a male hat available in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4. Its armor counterpart is the Red Jacket.

Description

The Mage Hat is a large brown hat with a broad, slightly ragged brim and a floppy, pointed tip. It has a black belt wrapped around the base, as well as a pair of thin, crooked grey horns protruding from the sides.

In EBF3, the Mage Hat has a solid black belt around its base and its right horn is broken off near the base. In EBF4, it became a lighter shade of brown, with golden details on its belt and both horns intact.

As its name suggests, the Mage Hat specializes in boosting its wearer's magical prowess. It has great Magic Attack, Magic Defence, and MP, as well as a resistance to Syphon; however, it lacks elemental resistances and physical stats, which Matt in particular will take issue with.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Mage Hat has unmatched MP and Magic Attack, allowing its wearer to cast more powerful spells and use his skills for a much longer period of time. It also boasts the best Magic Defence among male hats (tied with the Viking Helmet and the Soldier Helmet), but its Defence is only ahead of the Ninja Hood and it lacks elemental resistances; however, its status resistances are helpful to prevent unfavorable situations.

The Mage Hat is the best option for Lance's offensive build, with its great Magic Attack powering up his favored spells and its MP boost letting him cast them for longer without worrying about running dry. On the other hand, Matt will get better mileage from the Soldier Helmet or the Viking Helmet, which have stronger Defence and additional effects.

The Mage Hat resists Syphon and Death, up to 50% at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Mage Hat is one of only four male hats to increase MP, and it easily outdoes the competition in this regard; the Puppy Hat, Demon Skull, and Space Helmet combined don't boost MP as high as it. Additionally, it boasts the second-best Magic Attack and Magic Defence among male hats, as well as a boost to healing spells.

Although the Mage Hat can be used for Matt's unorthodox healing/support build, where its high Magic Attack and healing boost benefit Heal More and Power Metal, its main use remains being one of Lance's strongest options for a magically offensive build. Even so, it's generally outdone by the Headband and the Demon Skull, with its advantages (a healing boost, superior MP, no auto-Curse or elemental weaknesses) being relatively insignificant.

The Mage Hat resists Syphon, becoming completely immune to it at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Mage Hat is found at the end of the Kitten Kingdom Ruins, in the upper-rightmost chest by the rock wall. The chest can be reached after defeating the Protector.
