The Sol Spear is a recurring Fire elemental weapon in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It is one of Matt's swords in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, and one of Natalie's staves in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Description

The Sol Spear is a spear with a large, elaborate golden head. Behind its main point, it has a ring-like structure that resembles the sun, with a red gem in the center and ten spikes around it (six large ones and four small ones). It has a brown shaft with a dark red section below the head and a pointed golden shoe.

In EBF5, the Sol Spear's proportions are altered, giving it a larger head in comparison to its shaft. Additionally, a large red ribbon with gold stripes on the end is tied to the upper end of the shaft, where the red section was on its EBF3 version.

The Sol Spear is typically a magic-focused weapon that empowers the wielder's Fire skills (including its own unleash) and enables them to lower enemy Accuracy. It's also quite resistant to Fire damage, with Ice and Freeze being common secondary resistances.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Sol Spear boasts the second-best Magic Attack and MP of any sword, only beaten by the Razorback in the former and the Rune Blade in the latter. It also moderately boosts Accuracy and Evade, but its Attack is below-average. It can cast Fume with weapon-elemental skills, which somewhat boosts its offensive presence and benefits from its elemental boost, and its Unleash can significantly debuff the victim's Accuracy. Additionally, it has a remarkably strong elemental degree on its weapon-elemental attacks; 75%, only matched by the Blizzard in this regard.

While its elemental damage and resistances can be put to use in a significant portion of the game, the Sol Spear's magic-leaning offensive stats aren't the best fit for the physically-inclined Matt. Against anything not weak to Fire, several other swords will surpass its damage output; even against Fire-weak enemies, the Soul Eater can usually outperform it.

The Sol Spear resists Fire, Ice and Freeze, the latter of which becomes an immunity at max level.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Sol Spear is a staff that grants moderate bonuses to Attack and Magic Attack, as well as modestly boosting Defence and Magic Defence. Its weapon-elemental skills inflict Dry, which can be useful for setting up Natalie's own Fire magic (which the staff boosts), its Flame Blast unleash, and her allies' Fire and Bomb skills. It can also randomly cast Flare between turns, though its effect is generally too low to make much of an impact beyond cancelling out enemy Accuracy boosts.

Compared to the Dragon Wings, the Sol Spear has a better on-hit status and a bit more offensive power and raw defense on top of being available far sooner. On the other hand, the Dragon Wings have a counter skill and a powerful auto-summon while supplementing their defenses with good HP and Evade boosts that gives Natalie a little more survivability overall. Either is a serviceable source of literal firepower, but Lance will usually prove more capable in this regard, especially once he gains access to high-powered magic guns like the Flame Titan.

As a Dry-inflicting weapon, the Sol Spear is hampered by its unleash eating up a stack of the status; furthermore, Rainbow Blast is an inefficient means of multi-target status spreading. Additionally, Matt provides competition for Dry application with the Devil's Fork; its infliction chance is a bit lower, but it won't consume stacks with its unleash, it has a useful buff boost, and it's available even before the Sol Spear if the party takes a detour through the Freezeflame Dungeon before assaulting the Iron Fortress. Later in the game, the Obsidian Staff is even better for ramping up (magical) Fire and Bomb damage due to applying Invisible at the same time as Dry; to add insult to injury, its Fire skills actually exceed the Sol Spear's damage output (albeit slightly) while hitting much harder with Natalie's other spells in exchange for being a bit frailer.

The Sol Spear resists Fire, Ice, Chill, and Freeze, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5.

The Alt Sol Spear offers great Attack and Magic Attack, but moderately lowers HP. It powers up Fire and Holy skills (which works well with Natalie's base kit), inflicts Dry with weapon-elemental skills, gives Brave status between turns, and greatly increases Magic Attack when Natalie Defends herself; these effects and stats let Natalie inflict serious damage and set up combos with her allies' Fire and Bomb skills at the cost of making herself a little more fragile. Its on-Defend buff pairs nicely with gear like the Alt Bunny Ears, the Alt Obsidian Armor, and the Alt Fairy, allowing Natalie to power up her offense while simultaneously making herself less vulnerable.

The Alt Sol Spear can be considered a safer alternative to the few staves that exceed its Magic Attack; in particular, it can be compared to the Alt Slime Staff as a Holy-boosting offensive staff that penalizes Natalie's HP. It doesn't boost healing skills and it's not quite as powerful, but it has a less severe HP penalty, no Evade drop, a second elemental boost, and some useful support effects.

The Alt Sol Spear resists Fire, Holy, and Dark, with none of them becoming an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Sol Spear is found in Vegetable Forest, in a chest on the right side of the river near the end of the area. To reach the chest, the party must pass through a partially-hidden path in the grove of trees to the south.

Trivia

  • Natalia wields the Sol Spear in battle; coincidentally, her focus on Fire and Holy damage mirrors the weapon's Alt version.
  • The Sol Spear has similar aesthetics to the weapon of the King's Guard cat toy, although their exact connection (if any) is unknown.
