"Run for cover! Abandon positions!"
―Lance / Anna, Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Armored Oak is an optional boss encountered in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It's a stronger version of Mighty Oak and is fought on Battle Mountain — as such, it's exclusive to the Steam release of the game and the Premium Pack.

Appearance

Armored Oak's appearance is very different than Mighty Oak's. Noticeable differences is that its head is now mostly made of metal, its eyes are now green bionic eyes, its shoulders are now more metallic and have a strap on them, its right hand now has a massive spike on the top of it, and its left (shield) hand has been replaced with a cannon with a strap on it. The cannon is often used as a melee weapon.

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.

  • Every 3rd turn started with less than two allies → Passively summons either a Steel Fish or a Copper Fish.
  • Berserked → Arm Shot x2;
  • ≥65% HP → Cannon Bash (1/5), Cannon Bash x2 (1/5), Arm Shot (1/5), Cataclysm (1/5), Big Blast (1/5);
  • <65% to ≥32% HP → Cannon Bash x2 (1/7), Arm Shot (1/7), Arm Shot x2 (1/7), Cataclysm (1/7), Ground Pound (1/7), Big Blast (1/7), Artillery (1/7);
  • <32% HP → Arm Shot x2 (1/4), Ground Pound (1/4), Big Blast (1/4), Artillery (1/4). Passively summons a Wooden Idol every turn, with lower priority than the "every 3rd turn" ability.

Can't have more than 2 helpers at the same time.

Strategy
