    Just so all of you trash eaters know I have just made a WR (2 min ago) 1000000000% 5:21 EBF5. Which means I gona keep this WR, until time itself no longer exist because (from what heard) this takes about 30 hour and I beat it in 5:21 which is something non of you will be able to. If you are trying to make the WR on this game you are gona have to give up because non of you are gona beat the WR I have made (1000000000% 5:21 EBF5).

      Which version of the game is this happening in? The main menu will tell you which version of the game you are running.
      If it’s the free website version or the battle demo it will have been fixed in the newer ones, and those versions are not being updated anymore.

    Saves you carry over from here to steam will have the in game medals already unlocked, and you’ll never be able to unlock the steam achievements of those medals unless you reset medals….which is too bad if you’re already halfway through the game on the steam version.

        Ur game is nice. But the crasy thing is that the first time, Lance can just kill every one! And I’m sure that every player was very unbelievable that the second time we, the players can just kill Lance! This process is really funny as I said. Ur games are really nice on playing! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ I luv ur creative ways.

    I know it has been a while since these replies were posted, but why did you need to rely on, mostly, items to heal in the Iron Fortress? First, you had Anna who knows โ€œRefreshโ€ (or whatever it is called at the beginning levels). Second, you couldโ€™ve quit to when before Natalie was captured by Lance and then unequipped all of her skills and even swapped her armor to what you thought may have not been useful based on Lanceโ€™s character in previous Epic Battle Fantasy Games.

      You start with Matt, then get Nolegs, then Natalie, then Anna, then Lance. You have to fight all of them, and you get an achievement if you just weaken them enough that they surrender instead of “dying”

    Tried the 10 M damage badge on the 10M hp slimes in greenwood at lvl 36.

    Setup:
    Viking monolith*2
    Anna:Siphon arrow->Fireworks->
    Natalie: Debuff armor (-80%)-> Stagger
    Anna: Freeze arrow (~300k damage)
    Matt: Temper (+90%)-> change equip->Cleave

    And I still failed because the first 3 slashes did 9.8M damage and killed the slime.

          The games are worth the money, and once flash goes down there will be other ways to play flash games anyways.

    Ok i love these games but towards the end in the rapture area i started noticing that the attacks don’t do as much damage as they say, for example i used Anna’s leaf blade attack on a mage dog with roughly 40,000 health and the two hits from Anna’s attack did 32,000 and 19,000 and the dog didn’t die… what the fuck is up with that?

    Reply
    1. CoffeeUser

      The damage number is cumulative in this game. So hit 1 did 19,000 and hit 2 did 13,000 which totals 32,000. 19,000/1,3000 is roughly 1.5 so hit 1 is a crit. It was done like that so you can see Cleaver deal a million damage instead of 5 200,000 hits.

    Backup saves don’t seem to work in Chrome on Windows 10, all cookies are allowed, and flash is working properly, but the backup files don’t seem to lead to anything. In File Explorer, it says the backups are shortcuts but aren’t shortcuts to any kind of data, would this get fixed or not, since this is free version on the web?

    1. Matt Roszak Post author

      I don’t know what to tell you – it works fine for most people. What is the file extension on the backup files? It should be .meow, and it shouldn’t matter what windows wants to do with them, the game should be able to load them.

    There were a few days when the website/server was down. Today, when I opened my game, all my save files were lost and I forgot to back up……… Now I have to work hard again to get Lance. Its okay, I’ll just jump straight into hardcore mode instead of finishing normal mode first. It’s a bit sad, because I already reached the red town…. 20 something levels lost…

    Reply
    1. Matt Roszak Post author

      I’m not sure if that’s related to the site update – the URL is the same so it shouldn’t effect Flash game saves.

    I just had an interesting thought could you possibly do as an optional superboss that can’t be caught a dragon which has only its body and necks showing that has every single or if not this most of the attributes as this would a boss that would be an interesting experience as you could make to be like akron except on steroids with attribute changes and so would be a true challenge for even people that would want to strategise.

    Fair warning for everyone trying to get the Chinese New Years equips, it costs 5 of the event items that you get from monster drops for each upgrade on both of the flairs that you can get from the event. So in all, too complete the event quest, and to upgrade both flairs fully, you will need to collect a total of 30 event items. BTW, the other flair not given by the quest, go to an Equipment shop.

    Just fought the glitch and it was glitching out the UI ex: no hp bars and limit break for player char., no stats for enemy, enemies appearing on the HUD? but not in combat. I do not know if that was supposed to happen or not.

    Reply
    1. CoffeeUser

      It’s likely the glitch weather or the shroud status. Try using Mother Earth/The Creator and see if it persists.

      Remember when you have any interaction with glitchy enemies everything that happens is probably intentional.

      The free web version would probably just be the same thing as this but without bugs. (And it’ll probably not be on Armor Games since Matt did not mention it.) Just get the Steam version if you want something different.

        Just want to finish it on epic (any version) but don’t know if the chest which keeps causing the crash contains some quest-vital item, skill or essential piece of equipment which the game can’t be completed without.

          That chest just had some material afaik. So you can still very much complete everything here. Just not including getting every chest.

            Levelled characters up to level 36, but have hit a difficulty wall on epic. Can’t beat snowflake because the poison doesn’t damage him fast enough and when snowflake gets down to 4 million or so hit points, the attacks snowflake makes are starting to bypass the ‘meat shield’ character with revive and ‘target me’ and to take out the whole party. Can’t beat the 5th glitch monster because it repeatedly wipes the whole party out and the only ‘revive all’ options I have are Genesis (which deals holy damage and thus heals the glitch monster) and ‘9 lives’ which has a 10 turn cooldown.
            Can’t beat the trio monoliths with 200K hit points each (or is 2 million?) in the ‘final’ astral zone because again they’re wiping the party out with no problem, and if I remember right from ‘normal’ difficulty everything else there is MUCH tougher.
            Need to endlessly grind steroid items from the art gallery I guess, if I want to get any further…
            Anyway, it was fun up to the current difficulty wall (apart from that one chest which crashes the game) and I hope your steam version is selling well.
            :shades:

          2. CoffeeUser

            No need for that. Snowflake is harmless once both weaken and tired hit 50%. No meat shield needed. Glitch boss is really susceptible to debuffs so you could kill/capture it turn one with the help of Viking Monolith. (Or just do it on zero. No medal for beating that thing on epic.) Triple CM is quite hard if fought normally but not a problem with syphon. Even when fought normally it’s not that hard with the correct elemental resists.

            There were never difficulty “walls” in the free version. If you found a wall then perhaps you have been crawling this whole time. Try standing up by actually learning about the game. Utilizing statuses/take precaution for enemy attacks/maximize damage output. If you don’t want to do that then stay on playing normal I guess. Epic mode isn’t for everyone obviously.

            Reminder difficult parts can be fun for some people. And top players are still finding the game too easy. (I’m definitely not one myself.)

          So to be more specific, it’s in a chest guarded by a bubbler sprite. That fight is really tough. (4 deadly waves. Wave 4 is definitely the toughest of them all.) You should be fine though if not on epic or have a level 31 party on epic.

    Do battles that don’t give exp (Forgotten Temple, Grand Gallery) still raise support between characters? I talked to the Bard after going through both with Lance in my front line the entire time, but it didn’t seem that anything changed. Or maybe I just didn’t raise it enough. I don’t know. Either way, I love this game and am a huge fan of your work, Matt!

    Reply

      Best way to raise support is to go to the dummy slimes in greenwood, give your characters autobattle with electric bat summon, and then just wait. Play another game, read a book, watch TV, whatever, and come back every couple minutes to refresh the autobattle. Run away from the fight when you think enough rounds have passed

    After replaying EBF4 along with this I’m of the opinion that EBF5 is a huge improvement in almost every way, and 4 was already incredible so that’s quite a feat.

    The ‘almost’ comes down to three things, I think;

    Game-spanning sidequests like the dragonballs, the golden tickets, and the hidden glitch zones have unsatisfying results for how much time and effort they take to complete. The former two quests have almost no reward, and the glitch boss doesn’t do much to stand out from the one in the previous game making it feel like just another encounter.

    The main battle theme that you hear in most fights gets pretty grating after awhile, I feel. This is probably totally subjective but it’s the only battle theme in the series, including this game, that I’ve found myself turning off out of annoyance.

    The biggest one, and the one that I had to play EBF4 again to really notice – is that the pacing of the battles in this game feels horrendously slow. I’m not sure if that’s mainly caused by players and foes having longer animations in general, the capture system making you think twice about which enemies you kill, or foes and bosses being a lot beefier than in previous game, making battles take longer to win. But when I started playing 4 again the battle speed hit me like Lance’s fancy car.

    I’d like to reiterate that I think this game is amazing and I enjoyed every hour I put into it, and will likely spend many more when the premium content becomes available, but its few major flaws became pretty noticeable after a playthrough or two. :ooo:

    Reply
    1. CoffeeUser

      1. I agree with the quest. But the glitch boss seems alright for me. The point is not getting some super powerful item that makes the game easy. It’s the experience that the fight gives you. Both irl and in game. It has the potential to give you some trauma. It’s also the best grind spot in the game as of now. (Used to be triple CM but they were buffed.) I think that’s enough reward as it is.

      2. I completely disagree. I think this game did a better job at placing the themes. In 4 you hear almost every battle theme at the first two areas. And then no more. But in this game there’s almost a new song introduced per area. It should be more difficult to get tired of the themes in this game. In any sense you can’t really call this a “flaw.” If it’s one, how would you suggest ways to “fix” this?

      3. Hmm. Personally I dislike fancy setups (People were able to one hit everything in 5 by doing this.) and like to take it slow. And I even felt some of the battles in 4 were tedious to do. Like those kitten forts. They won’t ever go down. Even with burn it takes ages. And big versions of some enemies were also tedious to defeat. A big bush could take like 10 fire hits and kill my party multiple times over in the process. Do I even need to begin talking about Monoliths and Dragons?

      In this game I can do a battle against two dragons and do the same thing again without even feeling tiring in the process. Because all the players got buffed a lot in power. Monsters as tanky as chompers gets destroyed by a few earth moves. And a surge hit on Sky Dragon with some buffs and debuffs is almost 1/2 health gone. (Might be less depending on level.) This game is much more favorable to those who plays the game right. And I appreciate that a lot.

      Also, I wouldn’t exactly call having to think more about what you do a “flaw.” Rather “a massive improvement.” If you don’t like doing too much things you can always play on a lower difficulty.

      Of course, these are just my personal view. So feel free to ignore. (Also sorry for the super long comment.)

      1. Alexandrite

        Glitch boss: I just think more could’ve been done to make the fight stand out from its ebf4 counterpart, as it’s pretty much the same as that fight despite having some buildup this time. The boss doesn’t need a better reward, it needs to be a better reward.

        Music tracks: The music is generally very good yes, but I was talking about the trance battle theme that plays over about half the map. Might just be my opinion but I usually end up muting the music when I’m in one of those areas.

        Game speed: Since you made a pretty condescending remark about playing on a lower difficulty I guess you thought I was saying the game was too hard, which isn’t what I was going for there. Playing 5 and then 4 (both on the same difficulty) had me notice that the average turn in 5 is just way slower, whether due to animation times or whatever. When I started playing 4 I thought the game was running at double speed at first because the turns were just that much faster.

        1. CoffeeUser

          Short answer to the glitch part: Not really?

          Long answer: The glitch fight in this game was something that actually bothered me. Due to the lesser glitches having negative defense and the weather shrouding, it’s really hard to get rid of them. And not to mention the big glitch had some tricks to use this time. (Like ganging up with the lesser glitch, attacking backup or mass confuse your team.) It was definitely not a fight that can be figured out the first time. And actually required some strategy to win.

          On the other hand the EBF4 glitch is just spam kitten fort, arrow rain and star shower. If you consider that the same thing as the EBF5 one then idk. Imo it’s more of a reward than the EBF4 glitch fight in terms of the fight itself. Maybe it’s because you played 4 first so it doesn’t surprise you.

          โ— Maybe to make the glitch fight even more gimmicky Matt could make it so that the big glitch had negative on either of the defense stat every (few) turn(s). (Or even both.) But that would make this fight nearly impossible to those who don’t know what they’re doing. Maybe make it a higher difficulty trait.

          There’s another reason to play on a lower difficulty though. To save time. Playing on zero doesn’t always make you a noob. Sometimes it makes you a speedrunner. I never considered difficulty part of what you were concerned about.

          4 had shorter animations. But longer battles. On the other hand in 5 the animations were indeed longer. (Also with the weather proc and such.) But the battles are overall shorter. That’s all I was trying to say. (But with animations in consideration.)

          โ— So if Matt included a way to skip animations it would be all good. Is that what you were asking for? I think it would be really hard to implement such function though. And it’s probably too late since the game is going to be released soon.

    I’m not sure if this has been mentioned before or not, but I think I ran into two chests containing the Sol Spear (the fire elemental staff). If this was supposed to be the case for this (and other equipements), then this whole post is effectively meaningless, and I’d appreciate if anyone could let me know of that.

    If my memory serves me well, both chests are found inside Lance’s Fortress:
    The first chest being in the same room as the first prisioner you get to free (which means this chest is effectively acquaired without any optional exploration);
    The second one is found just one room to the North, but it’s in a chest that requires the magnetic boots to reach.

    I had upgraded the staff from level 1 to 3 before getting the second chest. When I did get the second chest, it showed the level 3 staff inside it, so this means there’s no actual changes in terms of gameplay caused by this.
    Perphas we could replace the staff from one of those chests with some crafting material?

      The first location was off. It’s actually at the screen where you encounter Anna.

      Their location was swapped with Camo Skirt in the last update. (From 0.15 to 0.16.) Due to their prior locations being useless. You get the staff right after Natalie was kidnapped. So you can’t use it until like 2 hours later. And when you get the Magnetic Boots you’ve essentially conquered the fortress. So bomb resistance is not that useful anymore.

      So that means you’re not getting Camo Skirt on this save. RIP. (Unless you do new game + but that’s only for the paid version.) This isn’t that far into the game so I’d recommend you to start again or load a save at a point before you encounter Anna if you fortunately have it.

      Multi hit attacks count as one hit for damage amplifying statuses now. Like Freeze and weaken/curse. Great change if you ask me. Like why would you want attacks to deal less damage? Do you enjoy having to give 5 layers of statuses for Cleaver to be viable?

      That’s one change I didn’t like much. But there are ways to deal with it. Like you can capture or stun/syphon the fish so that they can’t throw bombs at you. It actually makes you think before recklessly killing them. So good change, I suppose.

    Hey Matt, excellent job, the nostalgia is hitting hard and I’m loving the style and the new features (Pokeboxes, cooldown instead of MP), and I’ve only barely beat the first boss. Really excited to see the new sequel.

    However, one nitpick I have is that this tip:

    “Remember to upgrade your weapons and armor, especially before a major battle.”

    seems to appear right before the first boss, and continues to follow you everywhere with no way to permanently close it until you give in and upgrade something in the Forge. Some players (like me) may want to just walk around and check stuff out before upgrading, so making it a one-time message that permanently closes when you open the Forge (instead of closing until you start moving again) would help.

    Additional minor message issues would be the tip about what the very helpful box next to foe names represents (that you already captured that foe) appearing a bit late in the game so I was confused until then, maybe one could hover over the icon and get a small pop-up saying “Captured” or something.

    And if there isn’t one already, a tip that appears after you exceed the maximum in-battle summons count (when you have more summons than can be available at once per battle) could let you know why you can’t find them all in-battle.

    Thanks, and I wonder how the plot will go this time. Doesn’t seem to be a direct sequel but there’s hints of deja vu… ๐Ÿ˜‰

      You can find them in one of the pinned messages in EBF Discord. But only the latest changes are included.

      Aside from the Poseidon buff, Monolith buffs(Better debuff resistances and Cosmic Monoliths become smarter at using elements), and Viking Monolith costing more to summon, nothing major.

      Oh, and 7th Heaven has outfit variations now.

    I played through this version on Easy, just to get a casual experience of what EBF5 had to offer- Frankly, the whole premise/theme with the player being involved in the game universe left me feeling reminiscent of my experience with the past EBF games. Is this kind of a send-off for the series? I don’t really mind it if so, but it will take me some time to absorb. ๐Ÿ™

    :coffee: :coffee:

    Just an out-of-topic thought I wanted to share: As I’ve mentioned about the reminiscent factor, at some point I’m reminded of Adventure Story. Obviously, it’s a fairly old project by now, but it did make me think about another game following it. I understand if it isn’t possible, though. Like I said, it was just a thought. :yay: Anyway, to anyone who may be reading this, have a nice day!

          That statement was meant to be a joke. Consider the strategy level of an average player. I don’t expect those who don’t use Lance to be patient enough to find if Bio is useful.

          But to be fair, most Bio skills are weak. Others are outclassed. (Only Anna’s Razor Leaf isn’t.) Why use them when you can use another element and do a better job?

          At first glance that seems like a fair argument. But it ignored one thing. The damage over time effect bio statuses have. By utilizing them you can go full defensive and still kill things. Very useful against some foes with a large health pool and uses dangerous attacks at the same time. Like Mammoths and Dragons (Aside from earth).

          So yeah, Bio is useful. But it’s not that obvious so most people will ignore it. As some people fails even the wooden plank quest, I don’t know what even is “obvious” anymore.

      One gem is behind the fridge in the first equipment shop in Hope Harbor. You can enter the back area once the thief is gone. Just push the fridge to the side and you can enter the area it is in. The second one is in the house where the old dude lives in Greenwood with vegetables growing in front of the house. Push the bookcase to the side and you can enter the area, but you have to have the step ladder to get to the gem. The last gem is in the cemetery building in Redpine, but you need the candle to get to it I think. You just push back the first stone slab to the right twice and then go the left and up. Once you have all the gems you can place them on pedestals in the temple in the Forgotten Ruins.

      Oh yeah. Those battles are fun. I’ve beaten one on epic and yet to beat the other but got close.

      Reply
    2. Frost

      Level 36 and they don’t seem that bad – I did the left on zero difficulty (at your advice) no sweat. Even on epic you should be able to easily juggle all of the enemies besides one with freeze or stun, preventing them from moving at all. You can also use similar strategies to the glitch superboss to prevent their attacks from killing you outright. Their health isn’t super high either, a few limit break combos should do the trick.

      The one on the right seems a bit harder on epic, but if you can set up a black hole mega-combo (admittedly something that isn’t super simple with it constantly attacking you – probably need viking monolith) you could probably demolish it in one strike – dark weakness is very exploitable. Weaken + stagger + bad luck (if possible) + ~50% magic defense debuff + invisible on it, ~100% magic attack buff + good luck + brave on Natalie with max magic dark equips, then nuke it with black hole. I’ll have a go at it myself sometime later. I kind of doubt they’ll rival snowflake or the final boss on epic though

      Reply
      1. CoffeeUser

        Nope, you shouldn’t assume the situation on higher difficulties. Since some enemies get extra perks on higher difficulties. That aside enemies’ health differs between difficulties. At zero it’s 0.5x of normal, at epic it’s 1.4x. Almost 3x more.

        The left fight is only not that hard because it’s not all of them at once. Those damn creatures probably made up 1/4 of my death count in the past. However their status weaknesses suggests how to easily beat them. It turns out they are only dangerous in numbers. I don’t think a single limit break is necessary. Maybe it can speed up the fight a little. But you generally need to stall the fight instead of directly dealing damage anyway.

        I did a mini setup for that right fight. And I was only able to blow about 2/5 the health away with one limit break. Better setups requires Viking Monolith. I might do it some time for fun. But I don’t use summons for those fights unless I can gain back what I spent. Since then I’ll have to grind those back.

        Did you actually found Snowflake hard? If so you were definitely doing something wrong. It’s supposed to become one of the easiest fights once you find how to win.

        Reply
        1. Frost

          I’m aware of the HP differences; I’ve seen the right one’s HP on epic and it’s not especially high. It should still go down very easily to a boosted black hole. Under ideal conditions (meaning with frozen and maximum magic defense debuff) black hole does about 45 million damage at level 36. You can’t freeze this one and it has a slight debuff resistance, along with slightly higher base m. defense, so you’ll be doing a little less than half of that – maybe even around a fourth, I don’t want to calculate the whole thing out. Even then it’s enough to kill it several times over. You could probably even skip some of the setup if it’s too difficult to pull off while it’s attacking you.

          Left’s higher HP is mostly irrelevant due to status, and their attacks would probably kill you quickly on either mode without resistance, morale, or auto-revive anyways.

          I was probably slightly underleveled for snowflake. Even using the “defending target” strategy with morale+auto revive+regen, it was a close fight. It used AOE attacks way more than single-target attacks as the fight went on, so the target status wasn’t as useful as it could have been.

          Reply
          1. CoffeeUser

            I don’t think the “ideal condition” is feasible. You can’t freeze them. And they have debuff resistance so you can’t reduce their Mdef by that much. That’s a 0.5^2 damage modifier already. And with that level I think they have much higher Mdef than the one you are comparing with. (If you are comparing with the level 20 dummy slimes. Or the glitch even.) I think after all those modifiers you can only deal less than 1/10 of that even after all the setups you can. And that’s only if you manage to do the setups without being absolutely murdered in the process.

            Have you tried to use weaken/tired? After those stacks to the maximum Snowflake can barely hit you and even if he did it tickles (assuming you have buffs up). Then just stack dot effects and stall the fight. Also you can’t be underleveled since he levels with you. With how much damage he deals uncontrolled I mourn for your target tanker.

          2. Frost

            You’re pretty much just repeating what I’ve already noted. They have very slight debuff resistance, certainly not enough to halve the overall damage. You can debuff their mdef by -60% with max debuff boosts as opposed to -80%. And their base mdef is 11 as opposed to the dummy slime’s 7. These, along with lack of freezing, are the only factors affecting your damage potential that are different from a dummy slime. -Maybe- it would quarter the maximum possible damage, at most. A quarter of 45 million damage is still more than enough.

            Here’s the setup:
            Natz with max buff boost equips
            Lance with max debuff boost equips
            Nobody else’s equips matter much

            1. Natz casts Star Power on herself to get max magic and good luck
            2. Matt casts Temper on her for brave
            3. Somebody else Encores Natz, then she switches to max dark+magic equips
            -foe’s turn-
            -switch the party to be Natz, Lance, and the weakener-
            4. Somebody besides Natz/Lance uses viking monolith
            5. That same person then uses whatever to weaken the foe
            6. Lance uses a maxed enfeeble for -60% mdef on the foe
            7. Lance staggers the foe (maybe use Oblivion for the extra damage)
            8. Natz uses the invisible summon on the foe
            9. Natz casts black hole, decimating it

            If you get lucky with the haste equip, you could also give the foe bad luck, but it’s probably not necessary. I’ll give this a shot myself later. You only have to get lucky and survive one attack. And I think there’s a good chance it wastes that turn buffing itself anyways.

          3. CoffeeUser

            Hmm, I seemed to have missed that part. Sorry.

            -80% defense 5x the damage while -60% defense only 2.5x it. So it’s certainly enough to halve the damage. But that defense difference is smaller than I have imagined. It might work. (The grand total multiplier is 0.5*0.5*7/11=~0.16. 0.16*45=7.2) But the foe’s evade is really high so you’ll have to spare one of the turns to debuff the evade first. Even then they might still occasionally miss. And you’ll have to get very lucky for the enemy to choose that buff out of 12 possible moves.

          4. Frost

            Just tried it, and it worked. Advice: have Anna as one of the leads (the encore user) and equip her with viking dress, tentacle, and stopwatch – if any one of those takes effect at the start, it eliminates the need to waste a turn using bind. In particular, if the viking dress lands, you can skip the foe taking a turn altogether (this ended up being what happened with my successful run.)

            Even when complications arose – debilitate missed entirely, leaving its magic defense untouched – black hole was still able to (just very, very barely) nuke it in one strike. If you pull off the whole strategy with no misses then it should be a surefire win; if you miss like I did then damage randomization -might- leave it with just a sliver of health, but you can clear that with another limit next turn. I got pretty lucky to be able to take it out before it could even make a move, but I don’t think it was insanely unlikely with this setup.

            All told it took maybe 10-20 (quick) resets (mostly just fleeing and rebattling) before viking dress took effect. From there you just need a bit of luck. Accuracy boosting equips could help.

            I went ahead and did the left on epic too, pretty much a cakewalk with Anna abusing freeze+stun.

          5. CoffeeUser

            I now know why their def was lower than I thought. Defense scales linearly in this game. Unlike the previous game where everything is exponential. That’s why instead of being squared like I thought it’s barely double from 20 to over 2x the level.

            As a nerf of your strategy is probably coming. (Random equip proc not being able to happen turn one/harder to inflict invisible.) I managed to beat that multiple times with different methods. The idea is that their damage is so high on epic that they can almost fill up your limit break bar by one attack. So you can spam limit breaks over and over. Further enhanced if you purposely equip in a way that your characters have low defense. But it’s not necessary to do that.

            Here’s the cheapest strat I’ve found. Build your team so that the team in turn two has at least 100% bio resistance. Turn one NoLegs use 9 lives. Summon Bone Bat/Fuzzy Worm. And Stumpy Gloop if you want. Turn two switch to Anna/Lance/Natalie. Use Mother Earth, Death Metal and Genesis and whenever available. If none of then is available be sure to at least have auto revive on Natalie. Then just stall the fight and done. You even get most of the sp you spent back. No randomness involved. Or every random event either doesn’t matter or just speeds it up.

            Ironically this doesn’t work on lower difficulties. Or so I thought. You can try if you want.

          6. CoffeeUser

            Modification: Save Genesis if your team has auto revive. In case of multiple multi-hit attacks.

          7. CoffeeUser

            Oh, and if two players have free turns or someone has haste cast Barrier + Blue Flybot to speed it up even more.

        2. Frost

          Even if my strategy is nerfed the way you describe, there’s still a way to to pull it off easily – considering it was still one-shot even without Enfeeble, I think you should be able to get away with not making it invisible if you pull off everything else. So just cast double monoliths to get everyone the turns they need instead of casting one monolith and one invisible. (You probably don’t need to bind it if you can’t fit that into the turns, since you should be able to reset very quickly if a move misses. Also, Black Hole and Oblivion both have high accuracy, so the only shaky checks are Enfeeble and the weakening move – those can be solved with high accuracy equips.) Probably the fastest method by far.

      Try ctrl+f first for keys. It’s probably been answered multiple times.

      You find the sword and one of the staff in the last glitch area. That area has a unique theme. Did you assume nothing special is in it and walked away? Some people do that and it seriously confuses me.

      You get the clue to getting the other staff at a underground area at Wild Tropics. (One screen away from the Hope Harbor slime cat.) Everyone misses that staff.

      To find the bow first go to the Redpine steroid shop and chat with everyone for clue.

      I’m guessing that means second to last counting from left. Because I refuse to believe anyone can miss Dog Sausage.

      One of the Cat Toy is behind the last gold block.

      The other is one of the rainbow secrets. Talk to the NPC at Rainbow Gate and you’ll know what it is. Maybe you’ll even find the last diamond key by doing that.

      The hat is behind the last diamond block.

      Go to Iron Fortress for one of the female hat. And the other is near the entrance of Mystic Woods. Did you snooze at Mystic Woods or something?

            Depending on how long you’ve been playing, some updates to the beta version will have taken away a few weapons, armors, and flairs. I was missing at least 6 equipment myself because of some updates including, but not limited to, the green cross, the fan staff, the tentacle staff, skull and crossbones pin, wrath of Zeus(?), and more.

          2. CoffeeUser

            Yeah, the flair rearrangement did ruin some of the save files. My first file had Beholding Eye missing. (And it is missing. It’s no use getting back to the tree to get it back.) And the other had a bunch of missing flairs. Only way to fix it is to wait for the game to release and purchase it to access the new game + feature.

    2. The candle key item. Did i miss it or something…? Where exactly is it? Again, i’ve gone through every single square of the map available to me and i have not been able to find it somehow. Last night i quite literally looked for the candle for 1.5 hours.

      1. Try clearing the weather with a summon or limit break. You can then see the smaller glitches have one negative defense stat. You can think about what that would mean. But that doesn’t matter. Since you can just focus fire the big glitch with non elemental attacks and kill it in one turn. If you apply any defense debuff to it. Since they have a debuff resistance of -100%. Any debuff applied will since become 80% (the maximum). If you want to capture it… Good luck. Simply debuffing won’t do the trick.

      Also there’s no fixing the glitch effect. You’re stuck with it forever. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

      Jk, go into any battle that’s not the glitch battle and it’ll go away.

      2. No idea. Maybe it doesn’t even exist. If I were matt, I’ll place it somewhere very noticeable, maybe surround it with torches and guard it with some powerful foes like a mammoth. So that no one will miss it. Right? I don’t know.

      Sorry if you found that offensive. Since so many asked where it is I had to rant somewhere. Starting from the Rapture slime cat. Go up, go right. And there it is. Difficult find, I know.

        Lol you’re fine. If it’s in the Rapture then that means that i’ve got yet to reach it. I’m JUST now going through the area with the cosmic monoliths, haven’t gone through it fully.

        Thanks for the help.

    I feel the need to say that I really appreciate all the work you’ve done to make these games as amazing as possible Matt. I have spent hours upon hours on EBF3 & 4, and have had a ton of fun testing out the beta for EBF5. I will for sure be purchasing the steam version of the game because I want to support one of my favorite creators. Keep up the good work bro! :yay:

    Another bug report:
    Some foes have info on first encounter without scanning. Usually it’s a derivative of a previously encountered foe.
    Recent example: War mammoth was identified with description, strengths and weaknesses although I never scanned it. I did scan a regular mammoth.

      Maybe you captured it before. Maybe you scanned it and you forgot. The first War Mammoth is available as early as Lance’s Fortress.

    SPOILERS, PLEASE THINK TWICE BEFORE READING:

    Lance points out in BH2 that “We may have even traveled back in time”. Considering that, it’s NOT entirely implausible that they traveled right into the new world created by Godcat at the end of EBF4; this may be supported by Nolegs being able to summon The Creator AND The Destroyer pretty much right from the get-go in 5 โ—

      My theory before beating the game was that some being more omnipotent than Godcat drained the party’s power and erased their memory. But similar to the Akron scene, the party’s power was too strong so that being wasn’t able to get rid of them completely. So they become scattered over the world and each started their (new) own life. But destiny made them gather together again and went on the quest to save the world like they did before.

      After beating the game, I’m surprised how accurate my guess was. Although it’s quite different from what actually happened.

    Mega Glitch (e255): 1,057,766 XP at level 34. They won’t scale higher.

    3rd character cast bind โžก Natalie: Rainbow blast with Kaladanda โžก Matt: Legend with Giant slayer. (Or use any non-elemental summon.)

    About 10 sec of walking to reset fight.

    Triple CM: 1,179,261 XP

    Summon Poseidon with cloud flair equipped.

    If no Poseidon, 3rd character cast bind โžก Natalie: Rainbow blast with Kaladanda โžก Anna: Aqua Volley with water boosting equips. (Only oneshots if Anna has high enough stats/ defense debuff lands on everyone.)

    About 5 sec of walking to reset fight.

    Tested at level 36, zero difficulty. Apparently triple CM has become a better choice than the glitch if you have Poseidon.

    Idea for Matt if this needs nerf: Penalty for XP at lower difficulties. Or at least penalty for summon damage at lower difficulties.

    Hello guys, just finished the game on epic (lvl 36) and boy was it a ride! Pretty well designed, including the story, I didn’t mind any fourth wall breaking either (it may have got a bit excessive with the final boss but that’s okay).
    To anyone struggling with the last boss, here is a relatively easy method to beat the thing (i’ll explain in two stages, each more detailed so try to beat him using fewer hints for greater self worth XD) –
    1. First wave of the final boss is easy once you get the hang of it. For the first half of the wave keep your defense up as the boss mainly uses fire, ice, thunder and earth ‘attacks’. Keep your magic and normal defense buffs up and have scorch resistance on your frontline for the latter part of 1st wave. If you do get scorched, remember Lance’s medipack can heal as well as cure status effects. Brace for impact as the boss self destructs with mega dark damage, have that resistance! ——- For the next wave, make sure you have the right equipment. The boss loves to deal Bomb, fire, wind, non-elemental and probably dark and thunder damage as well. Playing aggressive and killing minions should be your priority! You won’t beat it in a flurry of Limit Breaks, you can only whittle him down slowly, so best to kill minions first. Best way for that – death by knife.

    Please read this only if you are ready to give up on the boss, or feel that you won’t succeed without grinding. Hints below are hand-holding stuff.

    2. 1st wave again – if you still have problems, remember to not equip your players with weapons that counter a lot, esp. Matt with Soul Eater, as the boss counter each, yes each move you do if it is damaged, regardless of its turn. Have a couple of damage dealers ready with an element to attack and when the boss switches its weakness to that element, use that char to unleash a Limit Break. You can also deal decent damage with regular skills but you need to debuff evade. A very handy way for this is Lance’s Thunder Core, which he will usually counter and (without damaging the boss) debuff evade. If it switches to dark weakness, the Soul eater can eat the thing up. Remember to use Ancient monolith with frontline dark defense when you kill it. Surviving the first attacks of the next wave is crucial.
    2nd wave – I needed a lot of help with this too. The trick is to kill minions as soon as they pop up. You can’t just bash your way to it however, you need a knife. I mean a literal knife for Nat. Thanks to all the guys above for this godly hint. Have Natz equipped with something to give her good-luck (and confusion resist!) and the knife and just rainbow blast every single minion one-by-one. Keep the main guy debuffed with tired and weaken till it is alone or with a minion at most. Since it is weakened, dark attacks work well. Rinse and repeat till you kill it. Oh, and when it charges up, remember to get morale/revive on your party. It can unleash it’s charge in any of the next three turns so enchant summon might not work since it will use some other attack on that turn. After the 2nd charge hit, you can switch Matt to Soul Eater and let him cut the monstrosity down.
    Also, try to finish it off in style. I preferred to give the final blow to the Chibi Knight, she worked so hard to get there.

    (P.S. – Useful summons – Green and Gray Pixel, Red and Yellow flybot, Nolegs doll, Ancient Monolith, Slime Bunny)

      Heh, looks like whoever did beat the final boss at the adequate level used something involving instant death.

      Angel Mirror and Stumpy Gloop are the real life savers in this fight. Wise Mirror also works well for those who are lazy to build status res. But I wouldn’t rely on that. Those are some other summons that can help greatly.

        Yeah I forgot those. Man I see you everywhere on this forum. Matt should make you like a moderator or something. 50% of the stuff here is answered by you. Also, I took your advice for the knife on the final boos. Cheers for the contribution mate!

          Haha, I instead wonder if Matt wants to ban me for commenting too much.

          The knife idea wasn’t suggested by me though. It’s only mentioned by “EBF killed my social life” which I believe is not me. Since I don’t even have a social life to kill.

          There is a more efficient way of causing instant death. Using the combination of bad luck + doom. (Which I wasn’t a fan of. Since that’s way cheap.) But that was taken care of specifically in the final boss battle in the latest patch. It’s still higher than knife’s chance. But spectrum has no CD so maybe it would be better at times. I’m not sure how good luck/bad luck affects status infliction chance. Or the equips that straight up say “increase status infliction chance” for that matter.

          Knife is actually really decent for the final boss battle for a different reason. If you want Natalie to be pure support. It increases the effect of buff skills. That means +80 7th heaven. Up to +100 if you use hats and armors with that effect as well. Matt gave such effect to a weapon that’s supposed to be a joke. It’s beautiful.

    I think that making Cat Bombers that kill themselves in a kamikaze attack give all their negative status effects (and possibly debuffs) to the target would add an extra challenge. It may make people a little more careful of using Doom and other powerful status effects for offense.

    Just finished the game. Well, “finished” he game, as I still have a few medals to get, but think I’ll wait for the full version to really go completionist mode.
    First, to get this out of the way: only encountered two bugs. At some point, roughly after acquiring the raft, weather descriptions stopped showing up for me for a while. The next day they came back, so not sure what fixed it – reloading or plot progression or something else. And the other thing is, upgraded Biohazard Blaster’s description has “undefined” at the end. Don’t think it’s supposed to be there :yay:
    Now for the game itself. Hoo boy. Up to some point, I was sure I was playing the best game in the whole series. The vast world is amazing, and affecting it by completing quests felt great. Loved the new enemies, too. Capturing monsters is fun, and surrendering enemies was a new mechanic you had to adapt to (sometimes they really did surrender at the worst time possible, haha). Still can’t tell if I like mana or cooldowns more, but they are definitely not bad. And they encourage you to use stronger skills more often, which dials up the “Epic” in Epic Battle Fantasy. And the story… it gave me back the feelings I liked about EBF3 that EBF4 couldn’t. This… fun with a pinch of epic evil looming in the distance? (or… behind the cupboard? :ooo: That part gave me some legit chills, I kid you not!) Hard to word, but, whatever it was, it was here and it was welcome.
    So, it was my favourite game.
    Until something came about.
    WARNING: the following will probably contain mumbling, whining and discontent, most likely subjective. If you don’t want to read this, then feel free to just stop right here and thank you for the great game.
    After trying to catch the thing that resulted in me feeling unhappy upon completing the game, I came to realize it was mostly one thing. The fourth-wall-breaking. I’m not a large fan of fourth-wall-breaking in general – if anything, I find it being pretty cheap at this point (sorry!) Sometimes it works well, hands down. In horror games, for example, it helps a lot to get the scare out of the monitor and into the player’s world. But in an RPG? When I play this kind of game, I want to be the characters I play, in a way. There’s no “me” – just heroes on their journey. I can act out as all of them in turns, and get immersed in the action. And then they break the fourth wall, and zip, it’s gone. All of a sudden it turns out I’m a separate character, a person sitting in front of the screen and pressing the buttons. But I don’t want to play as the person sitting in front of the screen and pressing the buttons! It’s not fun! I don’t want to be the god of this world, commanding my minions while nothing can reach me – that’s a whole other kind of game. And here, it just kills the mood. I could probably deal with it if it were solely for the glitch boss part – it is an optional “glitched” part, after all, THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME FEEL LIKE A MASSIVE A-HOLE, by the way, but, since it’s in the main story, it can’t be ignored. And that’s the biggest issue I have with the game’s last part. All the other minor things are completely subjective and are my mind’s fault rather than yours (for EBF1-3, I came to think of the main cast as players, not characters originating from this world. Then Anna came and it became unclear, and then this game solidified that they’re, indeed, very much characters. That changed the mood a bit – but, again, you’re not to blame here, this was your story unfolding your way, just how it should be)
    If you are actually still reading at this point, one more MASSIVE THANK YOU for all the great time spent playing Epic Battle Fantasy in general, and Epic Battle Fantasy 5 in particular. You are amazing at what you do, and this game was worth all the wait and will definitely be worth any amount of money full version will be on Steam. And I can only hope to see more games from you in the future (I don’t wanna be buried in Redpine Cemetery, so NO, I don’t mean EBF-related!) This was an amazing crazy ride you took us on, and I wish you the brightest future I can wish, as you deserve it. All hail Matt! :stars: :stars: :stars:

    I don’t seem to have the fire gem in my inventory; I got the chest in a similar area to the water one (and got the dim depths achievement), but I didn’t get the gem. Is the door of time not added in yet, and that’s why its missing? If that’s the case, I really hope that chest will be reset when its ready; I’ve got my current file backed up, and I’m hoping to not have to start over again before finishing the game for the second time.

    I’m also missing a bunch of equipment, and I’m not sure where else I haven’t looted yet; I’ve spent about 5 hours running around the map secret hunting, and I’ve found everything I possibly could (even the 4 codes from outside the temple) and I really can’t think where they could be. Yet, there’s still a single blank spot on nearly every type of equipment. Since one of those missing is the dark bauble, I really want to find it. I doubt there’s 9 equipment and 4 keys behind just the door of time. The only other things I haven’t solved are “Illuminati at the Rainbow Gate”, the zigzag markings in the cave below the monolith at the start, the sound test, and the 100% medal room.

    There also should really be some better reward tied to the star ball quest; that’s the “quest completion” quest (along with bottle guy), and only having one of them give something unique is disappointing. Something powerful should be moved there (masamune, black hole, heavenly shield, etc.).

      Are you sure you actually got it? Or maybe you put that in the temple and forgot. The red gem is at Greenwood. Also, there are 3 gems. One in each town.

      The dark bauble is at the fortress. At whichever screen that seems to be the darkest. No keys hide behind the door of time. But 2 pieces of equipment do. Illuminati at Rainbow Gate is a rather straightforward. Just make a triangle out of what you have. You use the zigzag pattern at Mystic Woods. Sound test is at the quest screen. Others I need to know what exactly are you missing before I can tell you where they are. But I can assure you that nothing is inaccessible in the beta. If you can’t find them now, you won’t have a better chance on the released version.

      I completely agree that these quests should give something actually useful. The amount of backtracking you need just to get these Golden Tickets. And all you get from that quest is some crafting material that you can buy from the shops anyway. Maybe this is another “the real treasure was the friends we made along the way” situation and we are all trolled.

        I finally found it; the green gem that I picked up is not in the green town; its from the red town. The red gem is in the green town. I just assumed that I picked up the green gem from the statue of the heroes or placing the orbs at the pond. That’s… really really stupid. The blue gem is at the port town; why are these ones misplaced? I hope it gets changed before the final release. That secret room solves most of my missing equipment troubles, and the rest are probably the really hidden secrets that’ll take me a few playthroughs to solve (and the dark room in the fortress is the crossbone pin, not the dark bauble).

          Hmm, you think a dark room is darker than some monoliths that are able to nuke you with doomsday?

          And yeah, that crystal color disparity sure confused some people. I’ve seen people on discord giving wrong instruction on where the crystals are. But maybe it was meant to be like that. Redpine is a lifeless place so you find “Emerald of Life” there. And Greenwood is the opposite. To add on to the strangeness of those cult members.

    Has anyone dealt 10 million damage yet? If so, I would like to at least know which character dealt it, what skill they used, what enemy it was used against, and what the difficulty was set too. The most damage I’ve dealt is about 5 million close to 6 million by using Matt with cataclysm against a mouse slime in the art gallery on epic difficulty. :wut:

    Reply
    1. Knokke

      I also used 80% defense debuff, 100% attack buff, froze the mouse slime, and enchanted it. I believe I also gave myself good luck (?), and the only other thing I could think of doing, not sure how to do it without killing the slime beforehand, is to give it heavy which will not bring 6 million damage up to 10 million. Then again cataclysm is an earth skill, so maybe I need a different element or even a different character.

      Reply
    2. CoffeeUser

      I used black hole on the slime bunnies at the top right of the map. At level 34 I believe. There are some slimes with nearly 10M health. Because their defense is lower you might want to use them instead. Cataclysm might work as well. Considering you are level 40. If your crit is not 3x crit (Mind that it does 2.5x damage instead of 3x.) then I believe you can add stagger and bad luck to the opponent and hope for that 30% proc. In addition to heavy. Be sure to use an armor that boosts earth as well. Rock sprite is a way to inflict stagger without breaking the freeze.

    Hi. Dunno if it was mentioned, but when I acquire a piece of equipment that has a chance of either aggravating foes or making them surrender, it always works for all the foes in the wave in the same fashion. Not gonna lie, it was awesome to see eight Drowned Fallens flee but I wonder if that is deliberate.

    Also, for some reason, when Matt uses either Quick Slash or Slicing Cyclone, it heals him. It happens scarcely. None of the equipment I have on him says that should be the cause. Is that normal?

    Ah sorry for disturbing in this argument. Sincerely to CoffeeUser, i have another try again to check for the charged laser and multiple beam of The Devourer attack. All my party have lightning resistance and only NoLegs who in my party who doesn’t have bomb resistance. The multiple Beam have reduced damage to my party except NoLegs and the Charged Laser also have reduced damage to my party except NoLegs. To make it clear my opinion with this is the charged Laser and multiple beam have 50% bomb elemental magic. I explain this very insist because i don’t want anyone get screwed with wrong information. For the tentacle i already tell to make them get cut and keep them in that state, that’s the work for the Bless Effect so the virus won’t inflict to your party which won’t spread to the Boss party. For the Bless effect start with summon Wise Mirror than keep it with Anna’s Refresh and Natalie’s Lucky Bunny about 4 or more stack. This is required if you want to play only with lv 37 because slimey tentacle arrow deal quite a lot and spiked tentacle slam can reduce one of your team to half or instantly die with lv 36-37, especially to Natalie and NoLegs. Just to confirm. ๐Ÿ˜

    Here’s a very annoying bug I found. If a character is Hungry, gets Stuffed from eating a hamburger (I don’t have any left by the endgate, despite never using one as an item for the entire game), then gets inflicted with Hungry a second time, they will bypass Stuffed and proceed to eat another food item. And Hungry will not be taken away, so it’ll happen again next turn. With no way to stop this without wasting a ton of food if the person caught in this loop is first in the party and has the haste giving skill equipped. This happened in the optional mansion with the group of mammoths, and it also happened to eat my last hamburger to start this loop; not sure if that had anything to do with it.

    Also. the path to the treetops of Anna’s house from the forest should really require the stepladder. I made the mistake of having the worm there be one of my first fights since reaching Greenwood (as a level 20), and the fight was super drawn out where the worms kept summoning more worms, and they took a turn and a half to kill one of them even with stat boosts. They couldn’t deal any real damage, and I was making barely any progress for about 20 turns. I realized the massive difficulty spike of being slightly underleveled after my EBF4 replay where I beat all of Battle Mountain and got all the achievements on Epic without going to new game +, and then I couldn’t find any way to beat the final boss because I was one level below them.

    Reply
    1. CoffeeUser

      Stuffed and hungry shouldn’t be able to exist at the same time indeed. It’s a bug. But do not worry about hungry players eating your food. They eat from personal stash. Which means it has no impact on your food in inventory.

      If you think you are underleveled for a fight you should either retreat immediately or use your limit breaks.Stepladder is meant to be a level 25-ish item. But what is blocks is probably generally much harder than that worm fight. For example, there is one fight on rainbow river that requires the stepladder. And it’s level 28 with one monolith and two chompers.

      I think that difficulty spike is for an entirely different reason. While being one level lower does make quite a difference. There was an update which made it so that the difficulty modifier is applied once again for enemies level 33 or higher. Which means 4x the normal damage for epic. Defeating Godcat on epic at something lower than level 33 has therefore become nearly impossible. I had to level to 34 to have a chance.

    Is it really just turns spent together fighting that determines relationships?
    Can I just set up a fight where the characters and their opponents can’t harm each other and just either berserk them to do 3 turns at a time or defend everyone over and over and over?
    How many turns does it take for two of them to have a good relationship?
    Right now the only one that seems good is that Matt and Anna are both equally immature ๐Ÿ™

    My own fault of course. I spent most of the game using Matt, Anna, NoLegs….

      Find some panda bear battles. They’ll do nothing as long as you do nothing to them. You can then skip as many turns as you need. Be sure to check if any equips have the “Randomly casts/summons x between turns.” and replace them with something that doesn’t.

    Wow. I can’t believe I beat final boss in EPIC difficult just with lv 39.
    Here some tips if you want to beat the final boss with epic difficult. First you need to ensure your party max hp about 50k. The best place to farming at The Beyond which there is a 3x monolith which gives you 1 million exp and 180 AP in total. Snowflake is the best summon you can use to wipe them in an instant. But, it was quite hard for grinding. Ensure when summon Snowflake the summoner use weapon and armor/clothes which boost non-elemental damage.

    For the final boss, focus to elemental resistance not status resistance. Attach 3 player with dark resistance, the more are the best. Because if you not use dark resistance and the front line unit not have any dark resistance you are going to screwed when the Cosmic Gigalith explode (Megumin tune when cast Explosion!), 33k damage with 50% dark resist on Natalie with 40% Magic Deffense Buff! Gigalitih have fire, ice, lightning, poison, and wind physical attack to all or counter to who deal damage to It. It also have non-elemental magic to all target that cause scorched effect. Sometimes, It cast to all or counter with Syphoon or give Enchanted status. When It changes it’s weakness better to dispel or summon Putrid Worm to debuff it evade since It’s the mother of Cosmic Monolith who have insane evade and buffing it’s evade. First turn use Matt’s Protection, Natalie’s Barrier and the other can Anna to summon Wise Mirror gives 5 turn Bless effect. Gigalith and The Devourer with it’s minion use a lots of status effect so Bless will absolutely helpful. And don’t forget to use Anna’s Refresh and Natalie’s Lucky Bunny often to keep the Bless effect. When the Gigalith explode ensure you use Nine Lives to the frontline party to keep they alive so you don’t lose all your buff. Use your Limit Break in the wave 2 to reduce eyeball and tentacle health till low. Play safe when fighting Gigalith

    Fighting Devourer can be very hard. You need to inflict Weaken to The Devourer to keep lowering It’s power. Then lower the tentacle and eyeball health until low. When the tentacle are get cut they will only attack with weak poison attack to party but cause virus effect. The Devourer have variety attack. It can unleash some tentacle, deal earth physical damage randomly (4 hit in total), Fire Blade which scorches your entire party as magic damage (maybe), Hexagonal Waves deal wind magic damage, Weird Laser or Lazy Laser (See Azure Gunvolt game version) which deal bomb magic damage. Sometimes, It use Limit Break which need to charge deal bomb magic damage to party. You will die if not have 100% bomb resist/ enchanted status/ morale because it deal 300k damage to unit with 50% bomb resist. For it’s minion Eyeball can be very annoying. They can attack with arrow which deal weak wind damage to one target, heal an ally based on target Max HP, buff all status except evade by 30% to one target or invert buff of one target. If they on low health they most likely wont invert your buff, and often spam heal so keep them on low health. There is two type of tentacle, Slimy or Spiked Tentacle. Slimy tentacle attack with Arrow (weak wind damage) to party or Star (weak lightning damage maybe) or Thrust to one/two target with wind/non elemental physical damage. Spiked tentacle attack to all party with Swing which wind elemental physical damage or Slam strong earth elemental physical attack. When on low health both will get cut. In this state the will attack with weak poison attack which cause virus to party. Have bless status on your party will take an advantage from them. When The Devourer on low health, It will delete Earth, cause you can’t run and take more and more damage every turn. But luckily It no longer can use It’s Limit Break.

    Try it and found the best combination of equip you can do. Gives applause to Matt Roszak and his team for this EPIC Battle Fantasy 5

      Hmm, and I thought I overleveled too much with level 37. I think any higher than this no proper tactics is needed anymore huh. And it would be a pain to grind to that point too.

      Gigalith is the relaxing part. It’s hard to die with buffs when not enchanted. Almost no resistances were needed. Maybe gave the attacker/target defender some to deal with the counter attacks. Barrier is not needed at first since Gigalith does not use any magical attack at high health. You can build dark, but morale/enchanted also survives that doomsday. Autolife works too.

      Do NOT โ— โ— โ— ever make the tentacles low. You are giving the enemy team virus, which is free regen for them. Either kill them in a few hits or just ignore them. If you happen to accidentally give them virus remember purify can be cast on the enemy team as well. As I said before, the charged beam is NON โ— elemental. Resistance is literally futile. And the multi beam deals THUNDER โ— damage. No amount of bomb resistance will do you any good in this fight.

      Other than that, nice tips for the final boss. Now load up a save and try not to grind above level 36 so you can achieve a fair and true victory against the final boss. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

        Oops, upon further research, it seems like the charged beam is slightly bomb elemental. Not like resistance will help in any way. You need to get at least 200% resistance for it to not oneshot you. Which is barely feasible.

        And is the other laser attack really bomb? I remember having 100% thunder res on Lance but not bomb res and that attack tickled. Would have to test more to know if that’s true. Research shows that both were true at some point.

        I made it to level 40, and it was not that hard. Go through to the beyond and grind on the three cosmic monoliths to the left of the gate. You will get to level 40 easy. If they are too hard, grind on the two cosmic monoliths in the Final Destination area. :coffee:

          I ground on the glitch and it took like 20 battles before I reach level 37. It gave more experience than the monolith battle obviously. Like how many hundreds of battle do you need to grind to something like 40 without grinding on something that scales with you. I hardly believe that’s “easy.”

          Also, I can do that 3 monolith battle easily. Even on epic it won’t take me more than 1 minute to finish them. Without the use of any limit break or sp. The glitch is just even faster. Although it stops scaling with you now it still gives more experience.

            I menaged to kill final boss on epic with 36 level :shades: (It wasn’t possible on 0.9v of game for me) .
            I used a multi elemental eq and highly concentrated on giving big-eye negative status :scared: (weakened and tired) and syfon :wut: for small ones (so they can’t give him buffs).
            Don’t save your food, you won’t need it anymore (and orange juice can be prettty usefull in this one) :tongue: .
            Try using 9 lives or give morale status when big eye is charged (you can’t just survive it and ir’s good way to get limit break) ๐Ÿ˜ฅ .
            You can always try to stun tentacles so they would not atack you (especially when there’s one after charged atack of big one).
            And remember to have auto-revive whenever possible. It worked for me :smirk:

          2. Knokke

            I would that the three monolith battle will take, maybe, 100 battles max if you are still a level 37 and you complete them on Epic difficulty. While I was level 39, it may have taken me about 1 hour, but hey I got a quite a few red pills by grinding the monoliths! Sure accuracy is not really a factor when you are level 40 against the final boss, but you can still increase Lance’s evade. :shades:

    Why I can’t beat epic difficult final boss. It’s so EPIC โ— My team in front line always die when the Gigalith explode ( Megumin casting explosion :bleh: ) Plus, Devourer charged attack/limit break deals 300k damage, is it really supposed to be like that. I need help, what elemental does Devourer and It body elemental attack is. I only know Eyeball arrow and Devourer hexagonal waves are wind elemental attack. And Devourer sword are fire elemental attack. Help me please ๐Ÿ˜ฅ ๐Ÿ˜ฅ ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

      Use Angel Mirror to enchant yourself if you sense a powerful magic blast. The charged laser is non-elemental and you shouldn’t expect to survive it without enchanted or morale. I think that multi hit laser is thunder. Most other seems to be bio. Maybe the tentacle slam attack is earth. Fire is the only one you need to be worried about anyway. It gives scorch which is the most common way to screw you over.

      Also, there’s no reason to save chilies anymore. Use them if you feel like you need to.

        Correction: Both laser seems to be bomb. Either something changed or I was misinformed. At one point I did firmly believe that laser was bomb elemental though.

      Morale and Autorevive are incredibly important. If it is fully charged, use Genesis to put on Auto Revive. If your frontline is dead, use Genesis. If everyone is alive and well, don’t have Natalie use any limit breaks at all. These are words to live by in EBF4 and 5. Seriously, on Epic it feels like the bosses are specifically meant to punish people who don’t use buffs.
      Its a hard fight, but you can do it no matter what.

    may have found a visual bug, if you go to the last area,(the beyond) and return to the rapture with the big portal all the characters (who gave you items) that were standing on the screen with the 4 orbs have black pixelheads, not sure if this is meant to be. if you leave the screen and come back they look normal

      You can also enter any fight (except for that one fight that gave you the effect to begin with) and it’ll go away.

    The caps are considered spammy? Oh… well I have to apologize then, I didn’t mean to be spammy at all, it’s just that… NoLegs’ french name triggered me beyond belief and I felt I had to say something about it but I guess I should have waited to regain some composure. My problem with its french name is that uuh… how to say that? The pronounciation gets ruined? What I want to say is that when I played EBF 4 in french, I didn’t ave any issues with NoLegs’ name staying English, I found the thing amusing even because of how well the joke worked. The translators tried to reproduce the joke in french and so NoLegs became Pad’Pat, a name in 2 parts, with a double “pa” with only 1 letter changing at the end… It sounds just plain stupid to say when NoLegs feeled more natural. Explaining that with a comment is hard…

    Anyway, again I apologize if I sounded spammy, it wasn’t my intention, and you can see that as soon as I left NoLegs’ name topic, I became much more measured. Wanting to ban me because 20% of my comment seemed spammy is a bit extreme I would say, but then again, I can understand the idea could come to one’s mind, it’s the Internet and we’re all way too quick to judge sometimes…

    Oh well, this answer is already way too long so… I just hope next time I’ll comment, it’ll be about my love for the series or EBF5 in particular

    The caps are considered spam? Oh well… I have to apologize then, it’s just that… it’s the 1 thing that triggered me beyond belief and I couldn’t help it but comment as fast as I could about it. I won’t change my opinion on the topic though, if there is 1 change I dislike in games, it’s translating the characters’ names, because the name’s… how do I say that? pronounciation? maybe… can be ruined by the translation. I’ve never had any problems seeing NoLegs while playing on french but seeing it translated as… Pad’pat really annoyed me. It doesn’t work in french, at all, I understand the translators wanted to reproduce the joke about NoLegs having no legs (nor arms for that matter) but it just sounds bad, the french version delivers a ruined pronounciation for the sake of keeping the joke and it’s not worth it in my opinion.

    Again, I seriously didn’t mean to be spammy, if you look at my previous comment, you can see I regain some composure when leaving the NoLegs part to express what I think of the game, whcih I deeply love like all the other EBFs. I was quick to speak, clearly, but wanting to ban me because 20% of my comment seemed spammy to you is not what I would consider the brightest decision, but then again, it’s the internet and I do the same mistake all the time, thus missing plenty of great people I judged too quickly on 1 sentence.

    Jesus this is way too long of a comment but I feel like it was necessary, sorry for the lenght and I hope next time I have to speak here, it will be about why I love EBF5

    Good way of making some bosses keel over pretty quickly:
    Lance the chaingun cannon: Use Genji armor and a weapon that exploits your target’s elemental weakness(es), defend, let ‘er rip (but not before dispelling any defense buffs or preferably debuffing it)

    Bosses: :skull:

    I find it appropriate that when Lance comments on climate change/global uncertainty, he’s talking about a world where his house/fortress that is the size of a small town is literally the single largest source of pollutants on the continent. There’s so little industrialization in any of the towns that the CO2 emissions would be insignificant at worst.
