The Zircon Ore is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is mainly found in subterranean and icy locations, such as the Ice Cave, the Frozen Valley, the Freezeflame Dungeon or the Crystal Caverns. It is a member of the Ores enemy group.

Appearance

The Zircon Ore is a roughly spherical chunk of light grey stone that floats in the air. It has two oval holes on the front-facing surface of the stone, each glowing with bright blue light. The rest of the stone is covered in large blue spikes of blue crystal, presumably zircon.

Overview

The Zircon Ore will usually sacrifice itself at the first opportunity, casting either Barrier on its allies or Freezing Blast on its enemies. This can make dealing with the rest of the wave more problematic, especially if the party is reliant on magical damage; fortunately, the Zircon Ore can be easily dealt with before it has a chance to act. If killing it outright is infeasible, it can be afflicted with Syphon or Berserk to prevent it from self-destructing, forcing it to fall back on a weak ramming attack instead.

Battle logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

Action

  • If Syphoned or Berserked, catch score >55, and all players are Lovable → Surrender;
  • If catch score >55 and all players are Lovable → Barrier;
  • If Syphoned or Berserked → Bash;
  • If a randomly selected foe has at least a 15% Magic Defence buff or no other foes are left → Freezing Blast;
  • Otherwise → Freezing Blast (1/2), Barrier (1/2).

* On Hard/Epic, Freezing Blast has up to a 80% chance to be replaced by Bash depending on player party Ice resistance.

Counter (only if Counter-Attacking Foes is enabled)

  • 33% and not Syphoned → Freezing Blast.

Summon

The foe can be captured to be used as a summon.
