|Effect||Causes a spell cast by the wearer to echo, making the spell cast twice (the spell costs same as MP as if it were just cast once).|
The Duplic hat (Echo hat) is a rare helmet that allows in-battle spells to echo and be cast twice. Due to its incredible potential, it is exceedingly hard to come by in all its appearances.
Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride
In the SFC version, the hat increases Defence by +25 and can be found in the bowels of Mt. Zugzwang and is dropped by the Wrecktor at a rate of 1/128. Bianca and Madchen can equip it, along with a handful of monsters.
The hat has been removed entirely from the PS2, DS, and Cell phone device versions.
Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation
The hat fortunately appears in all versions of VI, increasing Defence by +25 and Style by just +2. It may be donned by Milly, Ashlynn, Nevan, and the Slime buddies. The Pudgedevil and Metal king slime drop the hat at a rate of 1/256, meaning that even with a whole team of Thieves would only have a 3.125% chance to swipe one. Fortunately, one can be found in a chest hidden away in Reaper's Peak.
Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past
It increases Defense by 25 points, and Style points by 2. It can be found in a treasure chest in the Cave to Yet Another World. It also has a 1/128th chance of being dropped by the Hirsute hexer, who appears in the same dungeon. Maribel, Ruff and Sir Mervyn can equip it. It can be sold for 3850 gold coins.
Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
The cap does not appear in IX, but its effects are replicated by the secret Twocus Pocus skill a Sage can use after placing the Sage's Scripture scroll in their inventory.
