Star hammer 5

The Star Hammer is a non-elemental cat toy available to NoLegs in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Description

The Star Hammer is a wooden mallet with gold plating on its shaft just above and below the head, matching its faces. Its associated shield is a wooden buckler with a golden rim and a gold star in the middle.

As the reward for defeating the strongest optional boss in the game (along with just about all of the other optional bosses), the Star Hammer is a very powerful and well-rounded weapon. It doubles NoLegs's Attack and Magic Attack while granting a decent boost to both defences; it also boasts three useful elemental resistances and has a 100% chance to Dispel foes, which is rarely seen in weapons. Its non-elemental boost benefits Star Blast and some of NoLegs's shared skills, as well as its own bonus skills: a Star Punch unleash and a chance to cast Falling Star between turns. While neither is exceptionally powerful, their reasonably high trigger chances lets them add a good amount of damage to NoLegs's offensive.

While the Star Hammer is among the best choices for a balanced offensive weapon on NoLegs, the Honjo Masamune provides stiff competition for most of its roles. Due to NoLegs's inherent frailty, the Honjo Masamune's HP penalty and the Star Hammer's defensive boosts are largely irrelevant; additionally, the Honjo Masamune has significantly stronger offenses and high Evade, making it a better pure offensive weapon. On the other hand, the Star Hammer is the only weapon with a 100% Dispel chance; while this is easily replicated with the Dispel skill, Armor Crush, or NoLegs's own Star Blast, the ability to freely use multi-target Dispel with strong offences can be valuable.

Ultimately, the Star Hammer's greatest flaw is its location at the end of the game in one of its most difficult optional dungeons; by the time it is obtained, there won't be much to use it against. However, it may still be useful for any leftover optional areas (such as missed Arcades, NoLegs's Battle Arena challenge, boss rushes, and so on), and it is one of the greatest beneficiaries of the "Randomized Equip Locations" Custom Game (although forging it could be problematic).

The Star Hammer resists Fire, Thunder and Ice. None of these become immunities at Level 5.

The Alt Star Hammer continues to take to the stars with impressive offenses, an outstanding Stun chance and a ludicrously unreliable auto-skill just for fun.

The Alt Star Hammer is a potent weapon with massive offenses as well as a goodly amount of both Evade and Accuracy. It is best used for its damage output and good Stun chance; while it can summon God between turns (and woe betide the unlucky foes you're fighting when it does), the trigger chance is far too low to be relevant. It can also counter with a Normal Attack, although any Stun from counters will fade before the party can exploit it (unless the victim has Haste).

Compared to other non-elemental Cat Toys, the Alt Star Hammer is less fragile than the Alt Honjo Masamune or the Alt Buster Sword, more offensively-oriented than the Alt Steel Buckler, Alt Human Skull, and Alt Pixel Popper, and more versatile than the Alt Viking Buckler. Overall, while a very useful weapon, its late location still makes it unlikely to see much use under typical circumstances, relegating it to optional content and a "Randomized Equip Locations" Custom Game.

Trivia

  • The Star Hammer is wielded by God during the battle against him.
  • According to Matt, the Star Hammer is the EBF5 equivalent to the Equilibrium in EBF4, being a weapon that's overpowered stat wise but is obtained almost at the end of the game.
