Hela's staff

The Hela's Staff (also known as Death Bringer) is one of Natalie's staves in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4.

It is a Dark-elemental staff whose special effects tend to be something of a double-edged sword, offering great offensive power but potentially detrimental effects to players.

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 has very different attributes in the games it's featured in. In EBF3, it gives a low boost in Magic Attack at the cost of a small amount of both defences, and has a chance to inflict the Doom status on a foe if used for Natalie's standard attack. Its Unleash attack has a high chance of inflicting Instant Death onto the target, but debuffs user's defences afterwards, though that 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 strongest attacking item, Dark Rune. In this game the staff provides resistance to Instant Death and Doom, with the latter becoming immunity at level 5, but lowers Natalie's Holy resistance.

On the other hand, in EBF4 it greatly increases the user's Magic Attack at a massive cost in HP and MP. It actually has the highest Magic Attack bonus out of all staves in the game, including Premium content. It will also Curse the target instead of Dooming it, and can also randomly Curse Natalie between turns, which can not be avoided with Curse resistance. In this game it only provides resistance to Dark. Unlike EBF3, it has no elemental weaknesses.

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.
