Viking buckler 5.png

The Viking Buckler is a non-elemental cat toy available for NoLegs in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Description

The Viking Buckler is a round wooden buckler reinforced with a spiked steel ring on the border and a small steel disc in the middle. Its associated weapon is a small wooden spear with a huge silver ax head affixed below the similarly-colored metal tip.

Normal

The Viking Buckler is essentially a physically-oriented auto-fighting weapon for NoLegs, providing the second highest Attack bonus among Cat Toys (tied with the Star Hammer) along with a great increase to Defence. It counters attacks with Sword Dance; like the rest of its weapon-elemental skills, this may unleash Undead Blade and potentially Stagger foes to boost ally damage.

The Viking Buckler's main effect gives NoLegs the Berserk status every turn; while this ramps up his damage output, it comes at the cost of basically removing him from the party. Generally speaking, a normal build exploiting elements and status effects to boost them (say, with the Honjo Masamune) will have better damage output while being much more versatile; if you really want Berserk, NoLegs can equip the Horned Helmet or cast Raging Force on himself.

The Viking Buckler resists Ice, Water and Wind, becoming immune to none of them at Level 5.

Equip Remix

While the Alt Viking Buckler won't turn NoLegs into a foaming-at-the-mouth berserker, it still encourages an aggressive physical offensive with substantial Attack, solid Defence, and a little extra HP. It can summon a Lost Fallen or a Wooly Mammoth for added damage output and defensive support, but these are fairly insignificant; its best asset is its high chance to grant Brave and Morale between turns (at Level 5, the statuses will be almost permanent). The former effect makes NoLegs immune to offensive debuffs and critical hits while increasing his own critical chance; the latter effect negates defensive debuffs while providing a safety net against strong attacks.

The Alt Viking Buckler resists Ice, Water and Wind. None of these become an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Viking Buckler can be bought in any equipment shop for 60,000 gold, e.g. in Hope Harbor, Greenwood Village or Redpine Town.
