The Sapphire Ore is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. (insert typical locations) It is a member of the Ores enemy group.

Appearance

The Sapphire Ore is a roughly oval chunk of grey stone with two small holes on its front. Bright blue light glows within the holes, serving as the Ore's eyes. The rest of the stone is dotted with round Sapphire stones, giving the vague (but fitting) impression that the Ore is covered in water droplets.

Overview

In typical Ore fashion, the Sapphire Ore's go-to strategy is to sacrifice itself in order to perform a Water skill on the party. Torrent is its stronger option, hitting a single player for physical Water damage and a fair chance of Wet. Alternatively, it can use Bubble Blast, which does less damage (especially coming off the Ore's pathetic base Magic Attack) in exchange for hitting the entire party with a very high chance of Wet and a mild Evade debuff. Either way, the victim(s) of the Sapphire Ore's attack will be a tempting target for enemy Ice or Thunder attacks; if there's incoming Chill, it can also turn into instant Freeze.

Fortunately, the Sapphire Ore's plans can be stopped in their tracks by hitting it with Syphon or Berserk; it will be forced to resort to a weak non-elemental physical attack. On higher difficulty levels, it can also forgo its suicide tactics if the party has high Water resistance.

The Sapphire Ore absorbs Water, resists Fire and Bio, and is completely immune to Earth, Poison, and Virus. On the other hand, it's weak to Ice, Wind, Bomb, and especially Thunder. If "More Foe Resistance" is enabled, it becomes neutral to Bomb, Ice, and Wind.

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

* On Hard/Epic, Bubble Blast (except when catch score >55 and all players are Lovable) and Torrent have up to a 70% chance to be replaced by Bash depending on player party Water resistance.

Counter (only if Counter-Attacking Foes is enabled)

  • 33% and not Syphoned → Torrent.
