Octopath Traveler Wiki

Battle-tested equipment are among the most powerful in the game.

Each Battle-tested equipment can be obtained from two sources:

  1. Purchasing or stealing from specific NPCs completing corresponding character's Chapter 4 stories. Additional Side Stories may also need to be completed. Only 1 of each may be obtained in this manner.
  2. Challenging or provoking a specific NPC, typically of 10 strength. There is no limit to the number of each equipment one can acquire, however the drop rate is extremely low (estimated 2%).
