Custom Items Rebuild: The Regaila of Sun Wukong

Homebrew and House Rules

Silver Crusade

So I made a thread yesterday with a powerful item and it was suggested I split it up into multiple items. Since then I've come up with additional ideas for stuff I wanted to do and incorporated them into the items presented.

These items are HEAVILY inspired by the lore of the Monkey King Sun Wukong from the Chinese novel Journey to The West.

The items, with the exception of the whistle, are all part of a set called The Regalia of the Sun Wukong. Wearing the full Regalia grants additional powers to the wearer.

Heandband of the Monkey King:

Headband of the Monkey King
Aura Moderate transmutation; CL 5th
Slot headband; Weight
This headband grants the ability to speak with monkeys and apes as per the spell speak with animals. All monkeys and apes are automatically neutral to the wearer and his allies.
This item is part of the Regalia of Sun Wukong

Great Sage's Robes:

Great Sage’s Robes
Aura Moderate transmutation; CL 7th
Slot body; Weight
This lush robe is covered in thick fur. The wearer grows a prehensile monkey tail. This tail can retrieve any stored item as a swift action. The wearer can also use the tail to hold an item just like an arm, but the tail cannot manipulate the item (it cannot wield a sword, defend with a shield, activate a wand, ect.).
Once per day, the wearer can pluck a hair from the robe as a standard action and summon a swarm of monkeys as the spell mad monkeys. The hair plucked grows back the next day.
This item is part of the Regalia of Sun Wukong

Somersault Cloud Boots:

Somersault Cloud Boots
Aura Moderate transmutation; CL 5th
Slot feet; Weight
The Somersault Cloud Boots create a small cloud in the air as a platform for a increase the height of a jump. They provide a +10 bonus to acrobatic checks made to jump. Once per day, the wearer can gain a +50 bonus on a jump check.
This item is part of the Regalia of Sun Wukong

Nimbus Whistle:

Nimbus Whistle
Aura Moderate transmutation; CL 5th
Slot none; Weight
The Nimbus Whistle summons a small, flying cloud to carry the user that can be directed at will. This functions as the spell fly. The whistle can be used three times per day.

Ruyi Jingu Bang:

Ruyi Jingu Bang
Aura Strong transmutation; CL 10th
Slot ; Weight
This +2 Ki Focus Adamantine Quarterstaff was gifted by the Dragon King to Sun Wukong. As a swift action, the wielder can give the weapon the reach property or remove the reach property.
This item is part of the Regalia of Sun Wukong

Beads of 72 transformations:

Beads of 72 Transformations
Aura Strong transmutation; CL 7th
Slot neck; Weight –-
This chain of massive prayer beads hangs around the neck; each bead adorned with a kanji symbol for an animal. As a stardard action, the wearer can transform into any animal per the spell beast shape II. This transformation lasts for 1 hour.
This item is part of the Regalia of Sun Wukong

Regalia of Sun Wukong:

Regalia of Sun Wukong
Item Set

If all of the items of the Regalia of Sun Wukong are worn together by the same person, that individual gains extra powers:

The wearer gains a +2 enhancement bonus to Strength and Dexterity.

The wearer gains the ability to detect evil constantly in a 60 foot cone. This ability pierces spells and affects that would otherwise hide/alter alignment.

Once per day, as a standard action, they may create a magic circle against evil using the Ruyi Jingu Bang. This circle lasts for 10/minutes per level of the wearer.

Looking for criticism, suggestions, and other comments.

I showed this to one of my friends/players in the game and the reaction was rather tepid.
