Appearance

The Barrier Rune is made up of two constructs: a disk and a sphere. Two white crystals are perpendicularly protruding out of the top and bottom of the Rune.

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.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

  • ≤18.5% HP → Self-destruct;
  • Syphoned → Prick;
  • >18.5% HP → Energy Shot (1/3), Heal (1/3), Buff (1/3).

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

  • Berserked or/and Syphoned → Pricking Barrage;
  • ≥32% HP → Prick (1/4), Pricking Barrage (1/4), Energy Shot (1/4), Buff (1/4);
  • <32% HP → Pricking Barrage.

As its Bestiary description says, Plasma Rune is supposed to Self-destruct when at low health, however due to a coding mistake, in that case it'd instead use Pricking Barrage over and over.
