The Plasma Rune, also known as Bolt Rune, is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and, since the Battle Mountain update, Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It appears only as a helper to the Protector boss.

Appearance

The Plasma Rune appears similar to the rest of its kind. It's made out of two main parts: a sphere and a disk. The disk is covered with some sort of illegible writing. Two yellow crystals, possibly Topaz, are sticking out of the top and bottom of the Rune.

Overview

Plasma Runes are the "offensive" Rune. Their skills vary slightly but regardless of the game it is in, Plasma Runes will always pack an offensive buffing move which affects all foes and Thunder attacks. Though not individually strong, Plasma Runes can stun players and sharply increase the power of the foes.

While Plasma Runes have some immunities, they are easily extinguished with strong Bomb-elemental attacks such as Airstrike. In EBF4 it gains several more weaknesses, giving the player access to a variety of skills that can obliterate them. They can be easily disabled with Syphon.

Much like the Bits and the other Runes, the Bolt Rune will self-destruct when low on health.

Battle Logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

  • ≤18.5% HP → Self-destruct;
  • Syphoned → Prick;
  • >18.5% HP → Thunderbolt (1/3), Thunderstorm (1/3), Buff (1/3).

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

  • Berserked or/and Syphoned → Pricking Barrage;
  • ≥32% HP on Hard/Epic → Prick (1/4), Pricking Barrage (1/4), Plasma Cage (1/4), Buff (1/4);
  • ≥32% HP on Easy/Normal → Prick (1/4), Pricking Barrage (1/4), Spark (1/4), Buff (1/4);
  • <32% HP → Self-destruct.

Prior to the v2 update, a coding mistake caused the Plasma Rune to use Pricking Barrage over and over at <32% HP instead of Self-destructing.
