Best Accessories in Paper Mario Origami King

You can only equip one accessory of each type while playing Paper Mario The Origami King, and as such you'll want to know which ones are best. You'll want to have Guard Plus, Heart Plus and Time Plus equipped for battles, and your Membership Card just before you purchase items. The Ally Tambourine is great for when you have allies on the battlefield, as it will boost attack power. In terms of the alerts, we found it best to have the Toad Alert equipped while exploring, as toads are pretty well hidden. For a look at where to find all collectible treasures, head here.
