  • The Heaven's Gate in EBF1-4

The Heaven's Gate is one of Matt's recurring swords in the Epic Battle Fantasy series.

Description

It is a large, two-handed broadsword with an elaborate golden handguard. The handle is dark red with a golden point, and the guard bears two red gems and several small wing designs. The bright, white-silver blade has two curved points at the base, four smaller points along its length as it tapers towards the tip, and diamond-like red markings in its center.

The Heaven's Gate is one of Matt's iconic weapons, and his signature weapon given its appearance in virtually all of his appearances (including Brawl Royale). It is a balanced Holy weapon; in early games it had a small boost to defenses and offenses but in later games shifts to a strong boost for both offenses and for Evade. From EBF3 on, Heaven's Gate can perform a weapon-elemental counterattack, and has a Holy bonus skill.

Starting in EBF3, Heaven's Gate resists Holy and Dispel, with the addition of Weaken in EBF4 (along with Tired in EBF5).

Epic Battle Fantasy

The Heaven's Gate is Matt's default weapon. It is his most balanced sword, slightly increasing all of his stats. Besides the Seiken boost and a very slight Legend boost, it also makes all weapon-elemental attacks (Normal Attack, Drain, Wind Slash and Legend) Holy-elemental, calculated off targets' Seiken resistance.

  • Attack 10%
  • Defence 10%
  • Magic Attack 10%
  • Magic Defence 10%
"Most balanced sword. Boosts the power of Seiken. Adds Holy element to certain attacks."

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

The Heaven's Gate is largely the same as before, but with more traits: a 5% Evade boost and the ability to decrease a foe's accuracy by using Unleash.

  • Attack 10%
  • Defence 10%
  • Magic Attack 10%
  • Magic Defence 10%
  • Evade 5%
  • Element - 50% Holy
  • Unleash - Blindness
"Most balanced sword. Boosts Seiken."

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Heaven's Gate can be found in the Kitten Kingdom Ruins, behind one of the sealed doors.

It has lost its Defence and Magic Defence boosts, but its boosts to Attack and Magic Attack are greater. It adds Holy and Dispel resistance, and (following its EBF2 Unleash ability) has a chance to debuff enemies' Accuracy with weapon-elemental attacks. When used with the Unleash skill, it will heal Matt from Poison and Doom. At higher levels, it gains a chance to counterattack with the basic attack, and a chance to cast a magical Holy spell with weapon-elemental attacks for extra damage; unfortunately, a programming mistake prevents the pure damage spell from reaching any good power.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Heaven's Gate is one of the two swords available to the party when Matt joins Anna on her quest. Its Attack, Magic Attack, and Evade boosts have increased compared to its EBF3 appearance, but it no longer raises Matt's Accuracy. It now grants Weaken resistance, may cast a much stronger spell with weapon-elemental attacks, and still counters with the basic attack.
