The Circlet (サークレット, Sākuretto?) is a recurring piece of equipment in the Final Fantasy series. It is most often a helmet, and gives a variety of stat boosts, mostly to Magic and Magic Defense. In this sense, it could be considered a counterpart to the Twist Headband.
Circlet is a mid-ranked helmet that provides +4 Defense, +7 Magic Defense, +7% Magic Evasion, and +5 Intelligence. It can be dropped by Lamage, or acquired from a treasure chest in Agart Mine or the Lodestone Cavern.
Cap infused with magical power.
The Circlet can be bought in the Phantom Village for 4,500 gil or won from the Gorgimera. It gives +10 Defense, +2 Magic Defense, and +3 Magic Power. It can be equipped by mage classes, like the White Mage and the Geomancer.
Metal band that boosts the wearer's attributes.
The Circlet is equippable by all characters except Umaro. It can be bought in Jidoor and Thamasa in the World of Ruin for 7,000 gil. It gives +2 to Strength, +1 to Speed, +3 to Stamina, +4 to Magic Power, 25 Defense, and 18 Magic Defense. Although the defensive boost is mediocre, no other helmet gives such a high combination of stat boosts, making the Circlet useful when paired with strong armor to offset its low Defense.
The Circlet is an accessory and can be stolen from Snow, Ho-chu, and Ultimate Weapon. It gives +30 to Spirit and Magic. Although the stat boosts are high, the rarity of Ho-chu and Snow makes acquiring them in bulk difficult.
The Circlet is an accessory that grants a +10 bonus to Zack's Magic stat. When used during Materia Fusion, five Circlets give Mag +1. One can be found in a treasure chest at the end of Chapter 3. It is also a treasure in mission 8-4-2 and can be stolen from Mover and Evilgoyle and is dropped by Master Tonberry.
The Circlet can be refined using Quezacotl's Card Mod ability to refine Gerogero cards x10. It can also be mugged from Buel and NORG. It can then be refined into Aura Stone x2 with Siren's Tool-RF ability, or used to teach a GF the Mag +10% ability.
Circlet protected by magic.
The Circlet gives 51 Magic Defense and nullifies Earth-elemental damage and teaches the support abilities Clear Head and Jelly. A Circlet can be found in the Outer Island 2 Chocograph treasure, won by defeating a Behemoth in the Treno weapon shop (disc 4), or synthesized at Black Mage Village (disc 4). The cost to synthesize is 20,000 gil, a Coronet and Rosetta Ring.
The Circlet is an accessory that grants +10 increases to both Magic Power and Magic Defense. It can be found in a treasure on Mi'ihen Highroad in Chapter 1 and bought in Rin's Travel Agency on the Highroad in Chapters 3 and 5 for 4,000 gil. It is also an item drop from Behemoth and Lucil. It can also be stolen from the Behemoth (Oversouled).
Various Circlets exist as headgear, usually as part of robe sets. Many of them are designed for mages, though the Paladin's Artifact/Relic head pieces are also a circlet.
The Circlet is the ultimate Mystic Armor headgear, which gives +60 Magic Defense, +2 Strength, and +10 Magic Power. It can only be found in random treasure chests. Its license costs 100 LP. It can be found in Pharos. The first one can be found while traveling up the tower as part of the storyline.
In the Third Ascent/Spire Ravel-2nd Flight, there is a guaranteed Circlet if the Diamond Armlet is not equipped. Another Circlet can be found in the Subterra/Abyssal-South. The chest has a 50% spawn rate, and is a guaranteed Circlet, if the Diamond Armlet is not equipped. Once claimed, neither chest will respawn.
Jewels have been embedded around the front of this helm. The design exposes the wearer's ears, making it lighter.
The Circlet gives +100 HP and costs 10,000 gil to purchase at the outfitters. It can be equipped by the Knight, Dragoon, and Samurai classes. It is available to buy after the storyline battle 28 and found as a rare treasure at Lake Poescas with the Treasure Hunter ability.
Ornament meant to protect the wearer from harmful magic.
The Circlet gives +3 to Weapon and Magic Defense and teaches no abilities. It is equippable by all jobs apart from Paladins, White Monks, Defenders, and Dragoons. It can be purchased at shops for 1,440 gil.
The Circlet is a low-ranked hat that provides +3 Defense and +6 Resistance. It can be bought for 240 gil in the shop after creating it in the Bazaar after using a Fire Stone, Rabbit Pelt, and Wool. It can be equipped by all jobs excluding Dragoon, Paladin, Defender, and White Monk.
Circlet increases max MP by 40% and all Magic by 15. It is bought from the Akademeia Armory (after completing The Battle on the Beach on Agito difficulty), or found as a random treasure in Bethnel Caverns.
The Circlet is a level 92 hairpin that decreases HP by 290 and increases Bravery by 348. It also boosts Bravery recovery by 75%. It can be traded for at the shop for 14,780 gil, a Hypnocrown, Lapis Lazuli x5, and Oath Crystal x3.
Circlet returns as a level 90 Hairpin that provides -288 HP, +324 Bravery, and +75% Bravery Recovery. It can be obtained by trading 88,920 gil, Extension, Occurian Gem, and Girl's Hope x5.
