The Hela's Staff (also known as Death Bringer) is a Dark-elemental staff for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4.

Description

The Hela's Staff is a black metal staff with three sturdy spikes on its head. A small, spherical "cage" made of narrow strips of metal is directly below the spiked head, and the shaft has a few small adornments along its length and another spike on the tip, giving it a slight resemblance to a wrought-iron fence post. Most notably, the Hela's Staff has a white skull with curly grey horns impaled on the topmost spike of its head, with a pair of white feathers and a long red plume attached to the back of the skull.

The Hela's Staff is something of a double-edged sword, offering great offensive power but potentially detrimental effects to players.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Death Bringer gives a low boost in Magic Attack at the cost of a small drop to both defenses, and has a chance to inflict the Doom status on a foe if Natalie uses her Normal Attack. Its Unleash has a high chance of inflicting Instant Death onto the target, but debuffs Natalie's defenses afterwards; this can be quickly cancelled out with the Guardian skill. However, the staff does provide a way to deal relevant damage directly rather than through status effects — it boosts the power of the Dark Rune, the strongest attack item.

The Death Bringer provides resistance to Instant Death and Doom, with the latter becoming an immunity at Level 5. It also lowers Natalie's Holy resistance, which remains constant at all forging levels.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Hela's Staff severely reduces Natalie's HP and MP, but empowers her Dark skills and greatly increases her Magic Attack; it actually has the highest Magic Attack bonus of any staff in the game, including Premium content. Its Weapon-elemental skills can Curse the target, but it has a fair chance to Curse Natalie herself between turns; this cannot be avoided with Curse resistance.

The Hela's Staff is a "glass cannon" weapon that encourages Natalie to finish fights as quickly as possible. With other Magic Attack-boosting gear (like the Dark Bauble, the Dark Gown, and the Gold Star), she can deliver astonishing amounts of damage, especially with Dark skills and the Black Hole Limit Break - however, between her crippled MP and HP, a relative lack of resistances, and self-inflicted Curse reducing her defenses over time, anything that survives to take a turn will be a great threat to her survival even with support from her allies.

The Hela's Staff resists Dark. This does not become an immunity at Level 5.

Trivia

  • The name and element of this staff presumably refer to the Norse goddess Hel, also known as Hela. She is the goddess of the dishonored dead and (to a lesser extent) assorted illnesses and ailments.
  • The design of Hela's Staff is almost identical to that of the Sentinel, with the main difference being their heads.
