The Death Scythe is a Dark-elemental staff available for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It is exclusive to the Steam release of the game and the Premium Pack.

Description

The Death Scythe is a large black scythe with a dark grey blade and a head carved to resemble a decaying skull with glowing red eyes. It also has large, spiked projections on the pommel and the upper edge of the head.

The Death Scythe provides a good-sized Magic Attack bonus, but is is also the only staff since the Battle Mountain update to increase Natalie's Attack, although she cannot realistically make use of it. It also grants sizable boosts to Accuracy and Evade while boosting Dark skills, allowing it to act as a less risky version of Hela's Staff. True to its name, it has an additional niche as a source of Instant Death; it unleashes Death Spike with weapon-elemental skills and randomly casts Grim Reaper between turns.

As with many of Natalie's staves in EBF4, the Death Scythe has decent Magic Attack and should be used when elementally appropriate, or substituted for the Crystal Staff.

The Death Scythe provides resistance to Dark, Doom, and Instant Death; it becomes immune to the latter two at Level 5. However, it also weakens Natalie's Holy resistance by 30%, regardless of its forging level.

Found at the summit of Battle Mountain, specifically in one of two chests at the bottom-left corner of the shops screen, accessible after defeating all four Dark Players. Winged Boots are required to get this far.

Trivia

  • The Death Scythe most likely references the common picture of a scythe-wielding Grim Reaper.
