The Ranger Skirt is a female armor in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5. Its headgear counterpart is the Amber Bobble.

Description

The Ranger Skirt consists of brown-colored sleeves, and a brown dress with a dark brown lower skirt and red lining along the bottom edges. The dress has a pattern of large diamonds and small circles along the skirt, as well as a zigzag pattern on the cuffs of its sleeves. Several brown belts are wrapped around its midsection. It also comes with a string necklace bearing a charm similar in appearance to the "Triforce" from The Legend of Zelda. Natalie's version has several stitches along the chest.

In EBF5, the Ranger Skirt loses its red linings and necklace, and the pattern on its skirt was changed to solely incorporate diamonds of various sizes. The belts around the midriff lost their gold buckles, and a dark brown pouch is fastened at their side. The zigzags on its sleeves were replaced with thin brown bands that seem to help fasten them to the wearer's wrists; a small brown diamond can be seen near the upper edge of the sleeves. Natalie's version also has a small V-shaped cutout in the middle on the neckline to expose her cleavage; this cutout is removed if the "Cleavage" option is disabled.

The Ranger Skirt is strongly associated with Anna, being her default armor in both of its appearances. It tends to have decent to good defenses and a nice Evade boost; additionally, it offers protection against Tired and Poison (either the element or the status effect).

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Ranger Skirt has solid Defence and Magic Defence and high boosts for Attack and Evade. It has no special effects and insignificant resistances, but it has the highest Attack of all female armor, only matched by the Maid Outfit. While the latter also has more useful resistances and beneficial special effects, it is hidden on Battle Mountain and can't be accessed until after the Praetorian has been defeated.

The Ranger Skirt grants resistance to the Poison status and Tired, becoming immune to both at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Ranger Skirt has below-average defenses, but great Attack and Evade. It boosts the power of Earth skills, improves the chances of capturing foes, and randomly casts Bind between turns - unfortunately, the latter is rarely significant, due to being cast at Level 1.

The Ranger Skirt is an interesting piece of gear that gives Anna good offensive power and some utility. It is tied with the Cactus Dress and School Uniform for the highest Attack of any female armor, and it boosts one of Anna's main skills. This can be put to good use against foes weak to Earth, although other pieces of equipment like the Cactus Dress can fulfill a similar role depending on the situation. The Ranger Skirt can also be used if either Natalie or Anna is not taking active part in a battle, allowing them to pop in and improve the party's chance of capturing a foe.

The Ranger Skirt resists Bio, Earth, Tired and Weaken, with the latter two becoming an immunity at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Ranger Skirt has decent Defence and Magic Defence, along with good Evade that it can buff when the wearer Defends herself. It makes Earth skills more powerful while increasing the chances of Capturing foes and inflicting status effects.

As with its normal counterpart, the Alt Ranger Skirt is best worn by Anna, who has higher Evade, naturally-learned Earth skills, and better status infliction to exploit its bonuses. It is one of the best armors for a status build, as its defensive nature gives Anna more longevity (and thus more opportunities to spread status) compared to the Alt School Uniform or the Alt Sami Dress. It also allows Anna or Natalie to drop in on a fight to boost the odds of capturing a foe, with its defensive bonuses helping them stick around if a more prolonged effort is needed.

The Alt Ranger Skirt resists Bio, Earth, Tired and Weaken, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Ranger Skirt is available at the beginning of the game as Anna's default armor.
