Best Accessories for Barret in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

If you are wondering how you can alter Barret’s abilities to fit your playstyle, accessories are the way to go. In Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, accessories can be earrings, belts, vests, talismans, and more. Each one offers specific buffs that can boost the effectiveness of your spells, abilities, or healing items. However, with limited resources, you want to pick only the most essential accessories that strengthen Barret’s affinity for ranged-offensive and tank-support abilities. With these best accessories for Barret in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, you should be well on your way to scooping up the crown.

10. Healing Carcanet

As a tank party member, Barret is bound to take up more hits than most of your party members. He’s the best character to use as a decoy to distract enemies, allowing your other party members to unleash a flurry of blows at no risk to their health. So you can ensure Barret supports your party for as long as possible, you want to equip him with the Healing Carcanet crown accessory. It’ll boost Barret’s health, specifically increasing the effectiveness of healing spells like Cute, healing items like potions and all of the other healing abilities Barret has.

9. Enhanced Draconic Ring

Alternatively, consider the Enhanced Draconic Ring, which is an upgrade of the basic Draconic Ring. It increases Barret’s maximum health points by 5%. Furthermore, it increases the charging rate of your limit gauge every time you successfully block an incoming attack. While the increase in health speaks for itself, ensuring you maximize your limit gauge benefits can make all the difference between losing and winning a battle. Once full, it allows you to unlock Barret’s special limit break powers, synergy abilities, and even summon monsters in some fights, which can be powerful enough to land the final blow.

8. HP Up Earrings

To fully push Barret’s healing capabilities to their limits, you want to unlock the HP Up Earrings. These allow you to tap into a 30% increase in your maximum health points. Among all other Materia-based earrings, HP Up Earrings outperforms them all by miles, making it an absolute must to acquire.

7. Speed Demon Keychain

Although a mere keychain, the Speed Demon Keychain is a great choice for maximizing Barret’s offensive side. It causes your ATB gauge to recharge more quickly every time you use a weapon ability. Do note that your ATB gauge only slightly replenishes itself. However, for an offensive build, any chance you get to boost your attack power is welcome, especially given Barret’s relatively low damage output. Once full, it allows you to unleash Barret’s special abilities on enemies. 

6. Enhanced Karmic Cowl

Enhanced Karmic Cowl

Enhanced Karmic Cowl is a competitive accessory you want for nearly every character, including Barret. Not only does it boost your defense, but also your immunity to slow and instant death. Specifically, the upgraded version of the Karmic Cowl grants you 50 points more Vitality and Spirit, which boost your defense against regular and magic attacks, respectively. Moreover, it ensures that Barret does not die from either slow or instant death, which comes in handy when he’s tanking enemy attacks so your other party members can lay waste to the opponent. 

5. Corsair's Compass

If you tend to use Barret more than others in battle, then you want to equip Corsair’s Compass. It ensures that for every five types of commands you use, your ATB gauge splits into three segments for a short period of time. That way, you don’t have to wait for the gauge to fill up to make use of Barret’s special abilities. In addition to charging your ATB gauge quickly, you also enjoy more chances to unleash more special abilities in a single battle. 

4. Survival Vest

While using Barret at the forefront of battle or as a tank, you want to boost his defense as much as possible so you take minimal damage. The Survival Vest comes in handy on that front, allowing you to enhance your Vitality, which is a stat for defense against regular attacks, by 10%. 

3. Champion Belt

Alternatively, you can kill two birds with one stone and boost Barret’s offense and defense at the same time. While the Champion Belt gives you a 10% increase in maximum health points, it also increases your muscle strength by 5%. As a result, Barret can handle himself at close quarters against formidable foes and, thanks to increased health, survive just long enough to take them down.

2. Whistlewind Scarf

Your ATB gauge needs you to pay close attention to it. It fills up when you engage Barret in battle. Once full, it opens up the opportunity to unleash a more powerful ability or spell. Equipping the Whistewind Scarf comes in handy, making it so your gauge fills up faster. As a result, you can unleash more powerful abilities sooner than usual. This gives you an upper hand, especially in the face of stronger enemies and bosses. Keep in mind that Whistewind Scarf fills up your gauge at the start of the battle. So, you want to cultivate quick reflexes to unleash powerful moves as soon as it fills up.

1. Riot Vest

By wearing the Riot Vest, you can ensure that Barret survives even the most challenging battles. Like the Survival Vest, the Riot Vest shields you from regular attacks by increasing your Vitality by 10%. However, it takes its protective buffs a step further by increasing your maximum HP by a whopping 500 points. Combined, Barret can comfortably take as many hits as your party needs while surviving for longer than usual. With the Riot Vest, you can make good use of Barret as a tank support party member unmatched by any other character. And the sacrifice he makes will clear the path for your teammates to go for the win.
