Soul Crusher 5

The Soul Crusher is a non-elemental staff available for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Description

The Soul Crusher is a black metal scythe with a huge, overly ornate head. The top of the shaft ends in a spear-like point, the bottom has a horizontally-curved point, and a series of chain links are tied around the shaft proper.

The Soul Crusher is a bizarre and highly unorthodox weapon that attempts to turn Natalie into a physical fighter/tank. It provides a preposterous boost to Attack, the highest among staves, along with large bonuses to HP, Defence and Magic Defence. While the HP bonus is not the highest, the boosts to Natalie's defences are only surpassed by the similarly impractical Oak Staff. That said, this comes at the cost of significant losses in Evade and Accuracy, and the staff also has no Magic Attack whatsoever. This leaves Natalie without any boosts to her primary offensive stat, a huge bonus to the stat she has literally no skills for, and an impressive set of defensive stats that make her much more durable despite the Evade issues.

Aside from the stats, the Soul Crusher provides no elemental boosts, though it has several interesting abilities that alleviate its issues somewhat. First of all, the Soul Crusher strengthens buffs and may summon a Steel Wraith, whose Stagger chance and Defence debuff help with a more supportive role. It also increases the chances of foes Surrendering, making weaker foes less of an issue in the first place. Finally, it can also inflict curse with its Weapon-elemental attacks, which can passively debuff enemy defences for Natalie's allies to take advantage of.

Ultimately, this combination of stats and abilities does next to nothing for Natalie's usual advantages, but allows her to assume an effective supporting role. That said, The Knife and the Kaladanda both have strong Attack as well as solid defenses (high Evade for The Knife and defensive stats for the Kaladanda) which, along with their own abilities, may make them more suitable than the Soul Crusher. Additionally, the Slime Staff is a far more reliable and much less gimmicky choice for a defensive staff.

The Soul Crusher provides resistance to both Wind and Thunder, neither of which become immunities at level 5.

The Alt Soul Crusher continues trying to make Natalie into a physical tank, but with a more offensive twist than its normal version. Most of its stats are unchanged, but it actually weakens Natalie's Magic Attack while offering more of an HP boost. Fortunately, it also lets Natalie take better advantage of her less-used offensive stat; she can counterattack with her basic attack, which has a chance to cast The Reaper on hit. Since the Alt Soul Crusher also has an increased chance of inflicting status effects, this combination allows Natalie to deliver Instant Death with relative consistency; coupled with its increased Surrender chance, she can quite handily cut through lesser foes in no time. Unfortunately, the Alt Soul Crusher has little to offer beyond this, which makes its use difficult to justify against more Death-resistant foes and bosses.

The Alt Soul Crusher resists Thunder, Light, and Heavy, becoming immune to the latter two at level 5. Its forging requirements have been altered so its final upgrade requires six Steel Plates and a Dark Rune instead of two Steel Plates and a Steel Wraith.
