The Fairy Bow is a Poison/Bio-elemental bow available for Anna in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5.

Description

The Fairy Bow appears to have been made from a tree branch, with two twigs formed into spiky projections on the front and a few pieces of dark brown rope tied around its limbs. The grip appears to be the middle of the branch, stripped of its outer layers to make it easier to handle. Four green leaves are present on the bow; three on the lower edge and one on the upper edge. The arrows have twigs for shafts, two leaves for feathers, and heads made of carved stone. In EBF5, the Fairy Bow has a bulkier design with more twigs and light brown rope on its limbs. It now has five green leaves - four on the upper edge and one on the lower edge - and a bayonet-like blade has been added below the grip. The arrows are similar to their EBF4 incarnation, but their heads appear to be made of metal instead of stone.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Fairy Bow gives large boosts to Anna's offences (with Attack being increased slightly more than Magic Attack) and modest boosts to her Defence and Evade. It increases the power of her Poison skills and gives her weapon-elemental attacks a high chance of Poisoning foes; they may also summon Vines to inflict further damage and Poison stacks. The Fairy Bow is a fair description of Anna herself: a slightly physical-leaning attacker with a pinch of Evade and a good chance of inflicting status ailments. Its high Poison chance makes it effective for wearing down durable foes, but certain Flairs can let it apply other ailments to suit the party's needs. However, keep in mind that Flairs won't affect Vines, so a different bow might be more effective in areas with Poison-resistant foes. The increased risk of Burns is relatively minor, but Fire-resistant equipment still mitigates it if needed. The Fairy Bow resists Bio and Poison, but is vulnerable to Burn. The Poison resistance becomes an immunity at Level 5, and the Burn weakness remains constant no matter how much it has been upgraded.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Fairy Bow has great Attack and Magic Attack, along with average Defence and a boost to Bio skills. The latter perk benefits the Leaf Blade it can unleash with single-target weapon-elemental skills, but it can also cast Lumber between turns to deal Earth-based physical damage with a chance of Stagger.

The Fairy Bow is an effective offensive bow with some added support utility, as its high Magic Attack also boosts Renew/Refresh along with Anna's attack spells. Shared skills can take further advantage of its magic power, enabling Anna to deal solid damage from both sides of the offensive spectrum; even more so if Lumber manages to Stagger her target. However, other bows may be preferable for more specialized offense or support functions.

The Fairy Bow resists Bio, Water, and Earth, with none of these becoming an immunity at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Fairy Bow is an Earth-elemental weapon with excellent Attack, decent Magic Attack, mild Magic Defence, and slight HP and Evade bonuses. It boosts Anna's Earth skills and has the potential to unleash Big Root with weapon-elemental skills; this benefits from the elemental boost, inflicts Poison on its target, and can be triggered by the bow's Piercing Shot counterattack.

While the Alt Fairy Bow's bonus skill has high Power, it runs on the bow's lackluster Magic Attack and is fairly unreliable on top of that. Instead, Anna should treat Big Root as an occasional bonus to the damage of her weapon-elemental skills and use Log and Lumber for the Alt Fairy Bow's elemental boost. With high Attack, limited defensive bonuses, and a lack of status infliction, it's best suited for a pure offensive build.

The Alt Fairy Bow resists Bio, Earth, Curse, and Bad Luck, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Fairy Bow is available from the beginning of the game as Anna's default weapon.
