|Special Equip Effect||Increases random encounter rate|
The Lure Cap is a Hat available in Golden Sun. It can be obtained by winning Colosso; although the game can be won even if Colosso is lost, there will never be another opportunity to obtain the Lure Cap. It is recommended to save at each step of Colosso to ensure victory.
The Lure Cap increases the wearer's defense by 20. It has the unique effect of increasing the rate at which monsters attack the party, which is essentially the polar opposite of Sacred Feathers and the Avoid Psynergy. It can be bought for 3000 coins and sold for 2250 coins.
Although this is not at all a piece of equipment you would want to wear when actually playing through the game with the intent to beat it, the Lure Cap's ability to make monsters attack more often makes it easier (or at least faster) to level up the entire party, making it a potentially extremely valuable piece of equipment for players who spend a lot of time seeking out combat for party-building, as it cuts the time spent by a fraction. However, due to its low defense rating, you should not forget to reequip a stronger piece of headwear in its place before major battles, like bosses. The only way to get the Lure Cap in The Lost Age is to transfer it from Golden Sun, but this is highly recommended, because the increase to battle frequency you may grant to yourself by equipping this speeds up endgame level-grinding with Wonder Birds at Islet Cave. In doing so, the cap would be safest on a member of the back party so that the front party can have a decent defense stat on every character when fighting the Wonder Birds.
