The Squidband comes with Quick Respawn as the primary ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch. As a 1-star item, the Squidband comes with two 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 Squidband. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by the Squidband by a cumulative 3.333...% up to 10% additional experience at five-star level. Since it is made by the Zink brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Quick Super Jump and a lower chance of rolling Quick Respawn to fill its secondary ability slot.
