The Drill Golem is a foe that appears in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It's one of few foes not associated with a particular location; it appears in many mid to late-game areas, including the Waste Disposal Plant, Lankyroot Jungle, and even the Temple of Godcat.


Appearance

The Drill Golem is a Golem made of rugged black rocks. It has several dark silver metal protrusions, including at least two "toes" on each foot, a single small spike on its "head", a large, curved piece on its right shoulder, and a rounded piece on its left shoulder. Its arms are massive drills, similar to the head of the Drill Lance, but with only one spiked ring at the base of each drill; these rings also double as rocket engines for one of its attacks. It also has a cannon hidden inside the jagged mouth on its torso.

Overview

The Drill Golem is a strong foe that is resistant to a good amount of elements and status effects, but also has multiple elemental weaknesses. It's immune to Thunder, Earth, Poison, and Wind, but is weak to Water, Holy, and especially Bomb. It's also immune to Burn and Poison, and is highly resistant to Stun, Freeze, and Death. Despite the relatively high amount of resistances, it is still possible to wear down a Drill Golem fairly easily by exploiting its weaknesses.

Overall, the Drill Golem can be a challenge to take down because it has a large health pool, deals large physical and magical damage, and has several attacks that can Stagger the players, leaving them open to more damage from other foes. It mainly uses Earth attacks - including the defense-piercing Giga Drill ability - but can also use some Bomb and non-elemental attacks.

The Drill Golem is notable for its Launch Drills attack, which hits all players for significant damage and the highest Stagger chance on any of its attacks; however, this also limits it to only two attacks afterward. Since it's guaranteed to use Launch Drills after being reduced to less than 32% of its HP, a viable strategy is to knock it down past that threshold as quickly as possible, thereby removing its ability to use some of its most dangerous moves.
