The special equipment page says that the Magic Lamp summons Phoenix. It actually doesn't, at least not in the GBA version.

I have a question about Sword Dance. I know that the Lamia's Tiara, Rainbow Dress, and Red Slippers all boost the frequency of it appearing. Are these effects culmulative? I usually equip all three, but someone on Twitter said you need just one of the three equipped to get the bonus.

Thanks, fixed that error. Not sure how I managed to include that. As for your question, I believe that you don't get a cumulative effect, but I would wait to hear from someone who knows the game better to be sure. smile.gif

As mentioned above, the Dancer equipment does not work cumulative. So any of these pieces will suffice.

How this work is just setting a variable on (lets call it "Sword Dance Up") which takes "Tempting Tango" out of the equation and doubles the chances to perform a Sword Dance.

Taken from the algorithm FAQ:

Quote
ATTACK TYPE (HEX: 4A) (Dance)
1) If attacker has Sword Dance Up, Let N1 = (0..99);
  if N1 < 50, use Sword Dance;
  if N1 > 50, let N2 = (0..99);  if N2 < 50, use Jitterbug Duet;
  if N2 >= 50, use Mystery Waltz
2) If attacker does not have Sword Dance Up, Let N1 = (0..3);
  if N1 = 0, use Jitterbug Duet;
  if N1 = 1, use Mystery Waltz;
  if N1 = 2, use Sword Dance;
  if N1 = 3, use Tempting Tango


Sword Dance Up: Sword Dance has a 50% chance of being used when Dance is used.
Jitterbug Duet and Mystery Waltz have a 25% chance of being used. Tempting Tango will not be used.
Also, when using Flirt, Hit% = Hit% * 2


Note: Other equipment specialty variables are:
Code
+---+-------------------+
|Hex| Specialty |
+---+-------------------+
| 01| Catch Up |
| 02| Become Undead |
| 04| Sword Dance Up |
| 08| Half Mp (Battle) |
| 10| Steal Up |
| 20| Brawl Up |
| 40| Evade Physical Up |
| 80| Evade Magic Up |
