Heavenly Shield, called Guardian in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4, is a stat-buffing skill available for all characters in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and an extra skill available for everyone but Lance in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5.

Description

When cast, an image of a golden shield appears over a single ally, quickly sprouting wings to either side before vanishing. Its effects vary between appearances, but it always gives the target a significant boost to their Defence and Magic Defence; interestingly, each successive appearance has less effects in exchange for making the remaining ones stronger.

Heavenly Shield essentially combines Protect and Barrier, but targets only a single ally instead of the entire team. It is particularly useful for re-buffing allies who lost their buffs due to their death, Dispel, or who were simply in the backup slot in EBF4. It also makes good turn compression for some of EBF5's limited-player challenges, such as the Battle Arena, the Data Bunker, or a 1P Custom Game.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

Guardian is unlocked by completing a quest in Glacier Valley for Celeste; it can be learned by any player. It slightly heals the target while buffing Defence, Magic Defence, and Evade.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Guardian can be learnt by Matt, Natalie, or Anna, but is no longer available for Lance. It no longer heals the target, but its buffs are slightly stronger per level.

Guardian is found in the Temple of Godcat's spike puzzle screen, in the left chest blocked by a battle that appears as an Ancient Eye.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Heavenly Shield now has a one-turn cooldown and no longer buffs Evade; however, its defensive buffs are stronger than ever (and benefit from buff-boosting equipment) and its AP costs per level are lower. It can be learned by everyone but Lance (before the v2 update, Anna also couldn't learn it).

Heavenly Shield is earned from completing Canela's quest in the Redpine Town graveyard, which becomes accessible after the party has entered The Rapture for the first time. To complete the quest, obtain Green Keycards from defeating the enemies on the same screen.
