The Road Sign is a non-elemental staff available for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 4.

Description

The Road Sign, as its name implies, is a round red and white sign attached to a metal pole. The sign bears the image of a crossed-out blue cat resembling NoLegs's older design. A small question mark is visible to the left of the cat's head.

The Road Sign's main asset is its utterly obscene Accuracy; there are only three other staves that boost the stat, and their combined boosts are literally only half as high as the Road Sign's. It also has the highest Evade of any staff, although this isn't quite as exaggerated. This combination means that Natalie will be quite tough to hit (especially with other Evade-boosting equipment) while her own attacks are all but guaranteed to strike even the most evasive of foes...which is where the other shoe drops.

Not only does the Road Sign suffer from a low Magic Attack stat, it has no special effects beyond its ability to counter attacks with Spectrum. Since it has no unleash or innate on-hit effects, this counter is effectively useless without a status-changing flair like the Cursed Charm. While theoretically useful for automatic status spread, it's completely outclassed by the Angel Wing bow; not only does it have an inherent status effect, its Arrow Rain auto-skill hits all enemies at once and isn't reliant on the foes to attack first.

Ultimately, the Road Sign's benefits are too specific to make it a viable option, especially compared to its non-elemental competition; the Shooting Star and the Crystal Staff are much stronger offensively, while the Alchemy Set and the Epoch have more utility. The closest thing it has to a true niche is its ability to hit extremely evasive foes, such as The Glitch, the Cosmic Monolith, or the giant enemies fought on Battle Mountain - even then, Natalie can use other staves with comparable or superior effectiveness if she has other sources of Accuracy boosts (such as the Target Badge or Lock On support).

The Road Sign resists Death, Doom and Stagger, all of which become an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Road Sign can be bought in the Greenwood Village Equipment Shop for 800 gold.
