The Wrecking Rod is a Bomb-elemental staff available for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5.

Description

The Wrecking Rod is a silver staff with what appears to be a vent or turbine as the head, topped with a pair of metal blocks forming a crude square. A pair of brown wires or tubes connect the blocks to the head.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

This heavy metallic staff increases the power of Natalie's Bomb-elemental skills. It may cast Blast as well as reduce target's Defence when used with her Spectrum and Normal Attack, the latter of which she may automatically counter attacks with. The Wrecking Rod boosts Natalie's HP and Defence by significant amounts and provides a decent Magic Attack bonus, however, it also reduces her Accuracy and Evade. It's overall more of a defensive staff, that also allows Natalie to passively debuff the enemies' Defences, increasing her allies' physical damage output.

The Wrecking Rod gives resistances to Bomb and Stagger, but is vulnerable to Thunder. It becomes immune to Stagger at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Wrecking Rod offers a good boost to Magic Attack, Defence, and HP, but at the cost of a small Accuracy penalty and a modest Evade penalty. Its weapon-elemental attacks can inflict Stagger and have a chance to unleash Big Blast, which compliments its ability to automatically counter with a Normal Attack. Overall, it is a well-balanced weapon that can be used offensively or defensively.

The Wrecking Rod resists Bomb, Thunder, Stagger, and Confuse, with the latter two becoming immunities at Level 5.

The Alt Wrecking Rod grants decent HP and Attack boosts, but its main selling point is its massive Defence bonus, which is complemented by an 80% Defence buff if Natalie Defends herself. With the added HP bonus, the Alt Wrecking Rod gives Natalie immense physical bulk to go with her naturally high Magic Defence; unfortunately, this comes at the price of cutting her Magic Attack in half.

Fortunately, the Alt Wrecking Rod has several effects to encourage a defensive/support role. It increases the effectiveness of debuffs and healing spells, with the latter helping to offset Natalie's weakened Magic Attack for her healing duties. Its weapon-elemental skills can reliably apply Dispel, making it potential support by clearing out foe buffs on spare turns.

While it boasts incredible defensive stats, the Alt Wrecking Rod faces stiff competition from its magical counterpart, Alt Oak Staff. While the Alt Oak Staff provides supreme magical protection, Natalie already has good Magic Defence and there are noticeably more physical attacks in the game than magical ones. As such, the Alt Wrecking Rod is typically better for most scenarios; for any given battle though, the decision is a matter of personal preference.

For a less extreme defensive staff, consider the Alt [PENDING].

The Alt Wrecking Rod resists Thunder, Wind and Bomb, none of which become immunities at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Wrecking Rod is given to the player as a reward for completing a quest in Whitefall Town for Rizer.
