Buying Price 8000 Selling Price 800

Equipping X-Ray Specs allows you to see items on the floor and the location of enemies. You can prepare for battles and won't walk around in vain or miss items. In later dungeons, these Specs are vital.

2nd Place: Efficient Bandanna

Effect When this item is equipped, moves sometimes won't cost PP to use.
Buying Price 7000 Selling Price 700

The Efficient Bandanna has a chance of preventing PP from being used when you use a move. That means you won't have to worry as much about PP running out, not only in the early stages of the game where there are few items, but also in the long dungeons in the second half.

3rd Place: Fierce Bandanna

i found an oddly efficient way to find the stairs... get 3 warp bands, and equip them to ur party. when u want to stay in place, take off the bands. and just to be safe, when ur in a kekleon shop, TAKE. THE. BANDS. OFF. i haven't tested if other party members teleporting when u have shop items that u haven't paid for yet enrages kekleon, and honestly... i don't want to. you can find the stairs pretty fast w/ this strat.

Yo, Goggle Specs description is wrong in the recommended equipment section. "This equipment makes you hidden and invisible. There is a similar equipment called Trap Scarf." Should be " When this item is equipped, traps that have been set on the floor become visible."
