The Beachcomber comes with Opening Gambit as the primary ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Headgear, prevents the wearer from also having Comeback, Last-Ditch Effort, or Tenacity. As a 2-star item, the Beachcomber comes with three additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with a Super Sea Snail, or by purchasing additional copies of it from Naut Couture for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level to 1 or 2 stars will also add another secondary ability slot to the Beachcomber. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by the Beachcomber by a cumulative 3.333...% up to 10% additional experience at five-star level. Since it is made by the Inkline brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Sub Resistance Up and a lower chance of rolling Intensify Action to fill its secondary ability slots.
