The Nurse's Cap is a Cap-class head armor found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn.

Basic Description by Game Edit

The Nurse's Cap increases the wearer's defense by 18. It is also Used as an item by an Adept able to equip it both in and out of battle (but it does not actually have to be equipped, needing only be in that Adept's inventory) to emulate the Cure Psynergy to cure an Adept's HP by around 70. However, there is always a chance that it will break each time it is used. It can be bought for 1200 coins and sold for 900 coins and, if broken, can be repaired for 300 coins.

In The Lost Age, it can be found in a treasure chest in Madra that can only be reached by walking from the second floor of the inn across the roofs of the weapon, armor, and item shops. In Dark Dawn, it is found in a cabinet in a house located in Te Rya Village. Unlike most Hats, the Nurse's Cap can only be equipped by female Adepts; JennaShebaMiaKarisSveta, and Himi can all wear the Nurse's Cap.

Analysis Edit

The Nurse's Cap can be acquired fairly early in The Lost Age, which is also when equipment like this is most needed. Although individual players may not use it much depending on their preferred method of healing, it at least serves as a trump card to be used when out of Herbs and unable to perform healing Psynergy. Also, it is the strongest headgear available to Jenna and Sheba at the time, so it has a practical use for any player. However, as stated above, it may be replaced fairly soon depending on what method of HP recovery the player in question prefers.

In Dark Dawn, the Nurse's Cap is found later in the game compared to The Lost Age. By this time, its usefulness as a piece of armor is almost nonexistent; Karis will have equipped the stronger Glittering Tiara, while Sveta will have a stronger Mail Cap. Depending on the player's healing methods, they may choose to keep it in the inventory simply for its healing ability. However, the wide variety of healing Psynergy available by this point generally outclass the Nurse's Cap's function.
