The Ruby Ore is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is largely found in The Rapture.

Appearance

The Ruby Ore is a floating black stone dotted with red-orange crystals, including four particularly large ones that stick out in a slightly off-centered cross formation. Like all Ores, it has two small eye holes with glowing lights for eyes; in this case, the lights are orange.

Overview

The Ruby Ore acts similarly to the Fire Bit of games past. It can ram into a character and deal some minor non-elemental damage if the standard strategy is blocked/ineffective, but it vastly prefers to self-destruct to perform a Fire attack on the players. It has two options to choose from - a single-target physical attack and a centered magical attack - but both have a chance to inflict a Burn.

The Ruby Ore has several elemental resistances, including Fire absorption, but also several elemental weaknesses and a small health pool, and thus is easily dispatched. Still, take caution when there are several of them and you don't have Fire resistance.

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.

Action

  • If catch score >55 and all players are Lovable → Surrender;
  • If Syphoned or Berserked → Bash;
  • Otherwise → Fire Crystals (1/2), Flame Blast (1/2).

* On Hard/Epic, Fire Crystals and Flame Blast have up to a 70% chance to be replaced by Bash depending on active party Fire resistance.

Counter (only if Counter-Attacking Foes is enabled)

  • 33% and not Syphoned → Fire Crystals.

Summon

The foe can be captured to be used as a summon. It is effectively a stronger version of the Fire Crystals attack.
