The Shooting Star is a non-elemental staff available for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5. In EBF4, it is exclusive to the Steam release of the game and the Premium Pack. In EBF5, it is currently exclusive to the paid Steam release of the game and the outdated free Battle Demo.

Description

The Shooting Star is a golden staff with a crooked shaft and a large, star-shaped head. The EBF5 version has a pink gem set in the star.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

It provides a massive Magic Attack boost and two important status resistances, but no other stat bonuses. Its ability to randomly cast Star Shower can supplement any battle, doing non-elemental damage to all enemies. Stat-wise, the Shooting Star is a slightly stronger version of the Crystal Staff, but with different resistances and no MP boost. Either one is viable; while the Shooting Star boasts more power than the Crystal Staff, the Crystal Staff has three common resistances that make it more resilient in comparison.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Shooting Star provides a great boost to Magic Attack (second highest amongst staves), as well as a solid boost to Magic Defence. While its offensive stats didn't change much between games, its overall usefulness in EBF5 decreases due to being mostly outclassed by the Paper Fan, which provides a more useful set of resistances and a chance of getting Haste. It's also generally outclassed by Obsidian Staff, which has substantially higher offenses, a more useful elemental boost, and more support potential with the side effects of its normal attack. While the Shooting Star is still a viable choice, it is significantly more situational than before.

The Shooting Star grants resistance to (and at max level immunity) to Syphon, Dispel, Disable, Death and Doom.
