Whirlwind

Whirlwind cast on a Clay Idol, EBF4

Whirlwind, known as Tornado in EBF3, is an advanced Wind-elemental skill available for Anna in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5, and for any player in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 through items.

Description

Whirlwind blasts the target with a small tornado, dealing medium wind damage. It is the stronger variant of Gust and the concentrated version of Hurricane. While Whirlwind has always inflicted a status effect it varies between games; it debuffs targets' Attack in EBF3, Magic Defence in EBF4 and EBF5, and in EBF5 it also inflicts the Light status effect, boosting the power of any subsequent Wind-elemental attacks.

It is accessible to players only through the Light Feather item, which casts the spell on the target chosen. Its power is boosted by the Ark Angel gun.

Statistics
Name Target Power Type Element Status Effect Acc Crit RdF
Tornado Single Variable Stat Magic 100% Element Wind 50% 30% StatDown Attack 120% 10% 10%
Notes: Power is 40 when cast by foes, 90 when cast via Light Feather, or 180 (2x) when cast via Light Feather and the user has Ark Angel (gun) equipped. Like Meow Meow, ignores user's Magic Attack stat and any bonuses to it, instead using the user's level * 3 formula to get a value to multiply the skill's power by. Also ignores Accuracy buffs and equipment bonuses to it, yet still considers the base stat and the bonus from permanent stat food, Lollipop.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

It became a skill exclusive to the new party member, Anna. It can no longer score a critical hit without Stagger or Brave.

Trivia

  • Whirlwind in EBF4 is one of the few damaging skills without a critical hit chance; as such it cannot land a critical hit without Stagger or Brave.
