The Sentinel is a non-elemental staff available for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 3.

Description

The Sentinel is a black staff resembling a wrought-iron fence post. It has a small iron spike at its base and a slight widening of the shaft near the head. The head consists of two main sections, separated by a diamond-shaped piece with two small protrusions. The bottom section resembles a tiny cage, with several thin bars separating from the shaft and curving around to converge in a spherical formation. The top section is an iron diamond with three short, rod-like protrusions on the upper three corners, giving it the vague appearance of a cross. Four small spikes are present on the edges of the diamond, and a round yellow-orange eye with a slitted pupil is set into the center.

The Sentinel's Magic Attack is embarrassingly low, tied with the Demon Tail for the worst of any staff, but it's the only staff to boost both Defence and Magic Defence and its Evade is unmatched. Its best stat is its Accuracy, which it can buff even further if Natalie uses its Unleash; coupled with its resistances, its main niche is to be a reliable weapon against foes that try to dodge Natalie's attacks or prevent her from using her magic.

Unfortunately, the Sentinel's emphasis on Accuracy is somewhat wasted, as none of Natalie's skills are particularly inaccurate, and there aren't too many situations where she'll have serious issues hitting her foes. If Accuracy does become a problem for her, she'll usually be better served by equipping Accuracy-boosting hats and armor, allowing her to use staves with much higher power.

The Sentinel resists Syphon, Death, and Accuracy debuffs. At Level 5, it becomes immune to all of them.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Sentinel is acquired in Vegetable Forest, given as a reward for completing Yui's quest.

Trivia

  • The Sentinel's design is similar to that of Hela's Staff, with only their heads differing.
  • While possibly coincidental, the Beholding Eye from Epic Battle Fantasy 5 resembles a more visceral version of the Sentinel, being a black metal staff with a cross-shaped head and a large orange eye at the center. Both staves also emphasize Natalie's Accuracy, with skills that improve her hit chance even further; the Sentinel's Unleash greatly boosts Accuracy, while the Beholding Eye can unleash Tentacles to debuff the victim's Evade.
    • Going by the Beholding Eye's item description, the Sentinel's head and general design may be a reference to the Eye of Sauron from The Lord of the Rings.
