The Emerald Cyclone is a Wind-elemental bow available for Anna in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5. In EBF4, it is exclusive to the Steam release of the game and the Premium Pack. In EBF5, it is currently exclusive to the paid Steam release of the game and the outdated free Battle Demo.

Description

The Emerald Cyclone is an angular bow made primarily of a single piece of metal that wraps around itself at both ends. It has small patches of tan cloth wrapped around the grip and the ends of its limbs, seemingly to facilitate a strong hold and a place to attach the bowstring, respectively.

Fitting its name, the Emerald Cyclone is normally bright green unless equipped with the Cow Costume, Maid Outfit, or Ninja Skirt in EBF5. In these cases, it becomes black with white cloth accents.

The Emerald Cyclone usually has middle-of-the-road offenses, a good Evade stat, and resistances to Wind, and Tired.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Emerald Cyclone has average offenses and impressive Evade; it's tied with the Fairy Bow for the second-best Evade among Anna's weapons. It powers up Wind attacks, which benefits Anna's natural Hurricane skill and the bow's own Shockwave unleash. Its weapon-elemental skills also have a good chance to Dispel foes, and it can counter attacks with Piercing Shot to apply its effects if Anna takes a hit.

The Emerald Cyclone is a stronger offensive weapon than the Sky Feather, packing higher Attack and Magic Attack boosts and more powerful extra skills. It can also be considered an upgrade to the Eagle Eye in most respects, trading the Accuracy boost and a bit of Evade for better damage output and more versatile resistances. However, it's slightly hampered by the fact that Anna's Wind options are generally magic-based, which means that they run off her lower offensive stat.

The Emerald Cyclone is notably effective against the Praetorian MKII, which is weak to Wind, has high Evade for the counter to shine, and uses two powerful buff skills without having any Dispel resistance. However, the Emerald Cyclone won't be available yet if the player decides to fight the Praetorian MKII right after obtaining The Hammer needed to access it.

The Emerald Cyclone resists Earth, Wind, and Tired. The latter becomes an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Emerald Cyclone has respectable Attack and Magic Attack for an offensive bow, and it also boasts the second-best Evade among Anna's weapons (only behind the Eagle Eye and the Sharanga). Its Weapon-elemental skills (such as its Piercing Shot counterattack) have a chance to Dispel foes, and it can randomly cast Hurricane between turns to take advantage of its Wind boost and Magic Attack stat. Since Hurricane has a chance to inflict Light, it can essentially boost its own Wind damage even further every once in a while, in a similar fashion to the Desert Scorpion.

The Emerald Cyclone is a decent choice for a Wind-focused party, being able to occasionally make enemies Light and giving Anna good Evade and healing power without significantly compromising her own offense. However, Wind-weak foes are somewhat uncommon, and most of Anna's Wind options run on her lower offensive stat; she can learn Tempest, but NoLegs will usually outperform her with the Honjo Masamune in this regard.

The Emerald Cyclone resists Earth, Wind, Weaken, and Tired. It becomes immune to the latter two at Level 5.

With the Alt Emerald Cyclone in hand, Anna becomes like the wind itself; ethereal, but powerful all the same. It has low Attack and a significant drop to both Defence and Magic Defence, but it also provides great Evade and astounding Magic Attack. It also boosts Wind skills, occasionally casts Arrow Rain between turns (which can lead to entire waves of foes being Dispelled by its on-hit status), and gives Anna a decent Evade buff if she Defends herself.

The Alt Emerald Cyclone has enough Magic Attack to let the physically-inclined Anna muster a decent magical offensive build; however, she'll need shared skills for elements outside of Wind. It can be paired with the Alt Amber Bobble to let Anna buff her Evade and Magic Attack in a single Defend, although the Alt Fenrir's Jaw may be more efficient for all-out offense thanks to its insane Attack. If the player wants a safer magic-focused bow, the Alt Aquamarine trades some power and Evade for better bulk and great synergy for a Freeze-focused party.

The Alt Emerald Cyclone resists Wind, Syphon, Disable, Weaken, and Tired. All but the first become an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Emerald Cyclone is found on Battle Mountain, specifically in one of the four chests at the entrance screen. It is guarded by an eight-wave foe rush with foes from the Lava Cave that appears as a Fire Elemental in the overworld. Thermal Boots are required to reach the chest.
