The Ice Needle is an Ice-elemental sword available for Matt in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5.

Description

In EBF4, the Ice Needle is a grey halberd with a blue tip made of ice. In EBF5, the Ice Needle received a major redesign, being changed to a sword with the blade being made of ice. It is, in fact, a literal Ice Needle.

In EBF4, the sword had overall very average offensive stat bonuses and also granted minor bonuses to Evade and Defence. Its main selling point was its ability to Freeze on Weapon-elemental skills, which allowed Matt to Freeze entire enemy waves with Swift Slash (even more so when combined with Cloudburst to double the chance to land Freeze). The weapon granted 3 elemental resistances to Ice, Wind and Water.

In EBF5, the Sword's stats got changed, losing its defensive stat bonuses and just granting a high bonus to Attack (and a smaller one to Magic Attack). Its resistances were also changed, now having a Fire weakness, along with Ice and Wet/Dry resistance. The Wet and Dry resistances become immunities at level 5. Finally, it retains its ability to Freeze, with a slightly greater chance to land the status effect than before.

Tundra doesn't have the bonus skill power multiplier specified, and thus calculates independent of host skill's power, as if it was used as a normal skill — power depends on Tundra's level, defaulting to level 1's power (50) if it isn't learned.
