The Oak Staff is an Earth-elemental staff available for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5. It is exclusive to the Steam release of the game and the post-Battle Mountain update version of the Premium Pack.

Description

The Oak Staff is a brown staff made from carved oak wood and decorated with green oak leaves. The head resembles a Wooden Idol with glowing green eyes.

In EBF4 the Oak Staff gives Natalie a gargantuan set of boosts in HP, MP, Defence and Magic Defence that eclipse even Flower Pot's, but horrifically cripples both Attack and Magic Attack by 40%. As such, one wielding the Oak Staff will have to deal damage through status effects, or be there primarily to provide buffs, yet will excel at tanking incoming attacks. Even healing is weakened by the decrease in Magic Attack, though this can be compensated by the heal-boosting Nurse Hat. The Oak Staff will still be inferior to all other staves when it comes to healing though, even with the Nurse Hat.

The Oak Staff provides three elemental resistances: Earth, Wind and Poison. It may Bless Natalie in-battle, and is the most efficient equipment piece at doing so, with two turns of Bless per application instead of just one. It boosts Earth skills and can cast Lumber with single-target weapon-elemental attacks; unfortunately, Lumber doesn't have much in way of special effects and, since it is physical and Natalie naturally has very low Attack (which is further decreased by the staff), won't deal any noticeable damage.

In EBF5, the staff retains its massive defensive stats, though its Attack and Magic Attack penalties got slightly increased. While it now boosts healing spells, this only serves to negate the Magic Atack penalty, and still doesn't allow Natalie to heal for significant amounts of HP; additionally, the staff also got its auto-Bless chance reduced. While the staff does grant Natalie unparalleled survivability, its lack of relevant special effects (other than making Gloops and Bushes Surrender/Flee and Berserking Chompers) makes it somewhat lackluster at actual support. The staff's elemental resistances remain unchanged.

If the player wants a more reliable defensive staff, they may wish to consider the Flower Pot in EBF4 or the Slime Staff in EBF5.

Trivia

  • As with many other weapons found on Battle Mountain, the Oak Staff metaphorically represents one of the bosses in the main game; in this case, Mighty Oak.
