"Another bunch of cats have fortified themselves inside a tree, I see. I expected something more sinister to be at the bottom of this cursed dungeon."
―Lance, Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Telperion is an optional boss that appears in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is found in the Deathly Hollows dungeon.


Much like Laurelin, Telperion is a large tree house filled with many, many cats, with bone-like protrusions covered by spiderwebs visible from its top and sides. It's also darker than its regular counterpart. Telperion has a large hole on its front, from which the cats inside will appear out of when casting spells.

Virus Strategy

Unlike Laurelin, Telperion is vulnerable to Bio damage and as such can be efficiently felled via Virus and Poison. It also is unable to cast Purify, meaning that Telperion is pretty much incapable of getting rid of applied status effects. Hence, the Virus strategy.

This is a fairly standard Virus strategy - give the characters on the front line Virus or Bio immunity, use Beholding Eye or Biohazard Blaster to apply virus, then wait out the fight. Assuming the player does this fight when it first becomes available, they should use the Surgical Mask and Gas Mask to provide Virus immunity to the other two players. Give everyone defensive, status effect and buff improving gear; while dealing extra damage is nice, the goal of this is to wait out the fight. By casting Encore on the Virus spreader and attacking twice (for Lance, it may be preferable to use Unload followed by Double Shot), one can immediately drive up the Virus stack to 6, and then to 9 on the next turn. Afterwards, have everyone focus on applying Poison and Burn. Assuming all three are at the maximum number of stacks, Telperion will be taking well over 20% of its maximum HP in damage every round. In more probable and less favorable conditions (i.e. 9 stacks of Virus, varying amounts of everything else), Telperion will still die in about 10 turns or less. Of course, this is quite a while in-game, so the player will need to be prepared to combat this. It is generally best to have a more traditional offensive build on the player with the Surgical Mask equipped to have them deal more damage and take a turn or two off of Telperion's lifespan.

―Telperion and its cats when summoned

When summoned Telperion casts a powered up version of Satanic Ritual that inflicts maximum Curse stacks.
