Steel buckler 5

The Steel buckler is a non-elemental cat toy and NoLegs' starting weapon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Description

The Steel Buckler is, unsurprisingly, a round buckler made of plain steel. It has a large raised dome in the center, surrounded by four smaller dots. It comes with a steel shortsword with small indents near the base of its blade, a brown crossguard with a tiny red gem embedded into it, and a red hilt.

It resembles the sword and shield used by NoLegs in earlier games.

Normal

The Steel Buckler is NoLegs' starting weapon. It has solid Attack, good Defence and Magic Defence, mediocre Magic Attack, and decent HP. This combination makes for a strong, well-rounded weapon that works well in most scenarios. It can also counter with Blade Blitz.

While the Star Hammer is arguably a direct upgrade in virtually every way, it is not available until the player defeats God in the Temple of Trials. However, the Pixel Popper is a more potent offensive non-elemental Cat Toy, and the Honjo Masamune has unparalleled offenses with any element.

The Steel Buckler resists Earth, Wind, Light, and Heavy, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Steel Buckler has good Attack, HP, and Magic Defence, mediocre Magic Attack, and great Defence, but at the cost of a modest Evade penalty. It improves the power of NoLegs' non-elemental skills and allows him to gain Morale upon Defend, improving NoLegs' effective bulk.

While the Alt Steel Buckler appears to be a solid defensive cat toy, NoLegs relies heavily on Evade to survive attacks. While its Morale on Defend is helpful, The Tr*force can replicate the effect for a Target tank build, freeing up NoLegs to equip a weapon with better offensive or evasive capabilities.

The Alt Steel Buckler resists Earth, Wind, Light, and Heavy, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Steel Buckler is NoLegs' starting weapon, and is thus unlocked from the moment he joins the party in Hope Harbor.
