Well, I was really surprised when I discovered how much this wiki was missing, foes without pages, stub articles and more! But now we are working hard again to improve the quality, and I hope people can recognise that.
Hmm, I'm not even sure if an editor that's not on the discord chat will see that :S , but if you are one, leave a message to Omega Sentinel on the discord server that Matt himself made -> https://discordapp.com/invite/5gnkTvERead more >

And then I come back to this. . .
Has anybody else had something similar to this?Read more >

I am finally back after over a month of absence and silence. Firstly, I would like to apologize for such event, and for leaving the (although tiny) community without a word. As for explanation and justification, it wasn't my intentional choice. My ISP had technical problems and they took a lot of their sweet time to fix them, which resulted in me simply having no internet for over a month (yup, it actually took them that long...).
So, to not waste time any more, I shall ask you a question already:
How do you feel about Blog Posts and Forum? Should we disable Blogs, since Forum can basically serve the same function, yet more effectively? Or should Blogs stay active, and if yes, how should they be handled?
I am asking, since I am not…Read more >
...Or however the actual game dialogue goes! I can't remember; I haven't been on here or touched Epic Battle Fantasy for at least 15 months (that'll change soon, since I'm in the process of buying EBF4 on Steam as we speak in order to reacclimate myself). Anyway, I only have one announcement to make:
I am Andyyilong, i.e., the founder of this wiki.
I feel like that should give me more authority or something, but... founder of a wiki, who's not even the most active contributor, isn't actually all that important a position. I guess I'm just a little indignant that I can't transfer my shiny 100-point Founder / Creator / whatever badge over to this account.Read more >
Yeah, pretty much. I mean, I kind of forgot this wiki existed for a little over a year... in my defense, I was busy. Ish. The important thing is that I'm back, though, right? Whatever that accomplishes. It's not like I learned a whole lot; mostly, I just lost self-esteem. Oh well. The important announcements in this post are:
- I haven't died in some sort of tragic accident
- I'll probably be using my Jesus Beams account from now on (man, the achievements system is stupidly unnecessary and fun, but I can't transfer my 100-point Founder badge over - damn)
...Yeah, that's it. I guess I'll go buy and replay EBF4 on Steam to get myself into the mood for doing things.Read more >
The completion of the new Template:EquipTable is definitely one of my biggest achievement to date. The template went through multiple ideas, took months to have the final form and has a code twice as long as the others. It is still not perfect, but for now it is stable, and we can now use it to replace the aging Equip stat template.
Now, with Lunar New Year approaching, I believe I need to take a look at the state of the wiki. In the few months since I started editing this wiki, we have managed to achieve a lot, though there are still even more things that are not okay:
- The uploading of the game assets has played a large part in improving the wiki's appearance. With my expertise in searching and pirating things off the internet, I have manag…
If you haven't noticed, I've been filling up the wiki's recent activity list with a bunch of edits named "cat". This actually means categories lol. I noticed all the armors and hats are under the armor category so I'm putting them in a new one. But that means manually changing the categories for each hat article, sigh.
Also, badge +1 ftw.
UPDATE: I left a bunch of hats still at the male armor category because I realized that it gives you points to earn a new badge. If someone wants a new badge you can go ahead and finish it.Read more >
Used a decompiler to extract EBF2's resources. This should make it easier to take high quality photos of weapons, drugs, enemies, Lance's upper body...
If anyone is interested in completing the pages, I could start uploading the photos tomorrow.

Hi all! Got another technicality to work out here.
You know the bosses of Adventure Story, right? Well, I was wondering if they should get pages of their own on this wiki, or if we should keep them with the closest enemy equivalent. I'm kind of leaning towards the former at the moment, since some of the bosses are pretty involved, but there's already two of them incorporated into their respective enemy pages, so... I dunno.
Unless anyone has any objections, I'll make a sample page of the first boss, just so you can get an idea of what the rest would look like. Let me know what y'all think!

I have an interesting idea for a new page, but I'm looking for some community approval first. Who would approve if I made a glossary of terms used frequently in and in regards to the Epic Battle Fantasy series? It'd be a combination of descriptions for terms used in-game and on this very wiki, and links to pages that describe terms in more detail.
Any questions or concerns about this should be posted here for discussion. Thanks for your input!
EDIT: Say hello to your new Glossary! It's still under construction, but I think it looks nice so far - any thoughts?

Okay, I know we've gone over this a few times, but I'm going to try and present some examples on how we can reorganize the pages on this wiki. If you have questions or alternatives, please don't hesitate to put them up here.
- For armor, I would keep headgear and body armor separate (e.g. Army Jacket and Army Helmet), but make a note in each page of any counterparts they might have (e.g. the Knight Armor has a female counterpart in the Breastplate and a headgear counterpart in the Knight Helmet). That way, we can list their stats, abilities, and locations separately.
- When it comes to locations and games, we definitely only need one page per...location. If possible, try to find evidence of an official name - I'm still not entirely sure if the EB…
After my adoption request I have become an Admin. If anybody requires help or wants to ask about something, whether related to the game or wiki itself just leave me a message.
Thanks to Insert Your Name Here we got some fancy templates to play with: Infobox for foes (EBF3 and EBF4 variants); Skill/Spell table which looks quite nice, it replaces the default wiki-table we used for that; Loot template to list all items that drop from foes on their defeat; Recommended equipment table, which will be quite useful for strategy against bosses; and new template for Equipment stats, but it is still in development.
Reminder for myself - add option to collapse to some of the table-like templates

On this wiki we have WAY too many repeat articles. We have Captain's Hat, Captain Hat, and Pirate Gear, we need to decide! Bits also have their own pages and a main page. We need to decide to do it by enemy or by enemy type.Read more >
Don't expect me to post anythingRead more >
Special skills are shared among characters. When picking it, I tend to choose a element which isn't yet exist in main skill of a character. As example, Natalie doesn't have wind element skill in her main skill, so skill Shockwave is for her. Matt doesn't have it either, but shockwave is magic skill which is suitable for Natalie. Lance doesn't have it either, but one of his guns, Vortex Cannon, has an ability to cast shockwave.Read more >
While I do have Photoshop, I'm not particularly experienced with it beyond some basic Computer Graphics classes, and so I'd just like to say that I'd really appreciate it if someone sent me or one of the admins a background or wordmark for the wiki (wordmarks should be 250 x 65 pixels; background I'm unclear on). Kudos to Woo224 for the awesome favicon.Read more >
It has come to my attention that the number of categories on this wiki is astounding. Many of them are repeats, and so I'd like to mobilize the community in cleaning them up. For example, one page can have the categories Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and EBF3. There's also categories like Epic battle fantasy 3 which I'd like fixed simply to look more professional. I'm going to try to fix some by myself but I can't process 486+ articles (good job, by the way, guys) on my own. So, for future reference, I'd like it to be noted that when listing games in categories, use the full name, with proper punctuation, e.g. Epic Battle Fantasy 3. When referring to the games in articles, you can use either the full name or the abbreviation, but remember that pun…Read more >
I wished to ask for permission from the administrators if I was allowed to add this to an Epic Battle Fantasy 3 article, but I am asking first just in case someone deletes it for dark purposes.
A few years ago, a great battle against an evil entity rocked the earth. The destruction left the population enfeebled and struggling to survive. A mighty warrior, Lance the gunner, took this opportunity to conquer the lands.
However, he was promptly defeated by Matt the swordsman and Natalie the magician. Following this battle, the three young heroes teamed up, hoping that no new evil force could defeat their combined power, and once more bring chaos into the world.
The trio spent their days hunting treasure and challenging new opponents. Eventually, l…Read more >
I have come back to scold you and give you all a piece of my mind.
When editing an article, don't just keep consistent with the formatting; have proper grammar as well, you n00bs! Only use a semi-colon (;) when ending an independent clause (a group of words that can stand alone and sound like a real sentence) but also to connect it to another independent clause.
If you decide to list something, add a comma (,) after the object before the and as well! For example:
Matt, Natalie, Lance, and Anna are the main characters.
Notice that little tailed period after Lance. That comma after the object before the and is crucial! If you do not apply it, it shall become lonely and possibly have a grudge against you until you finish college, possibly longer than …Read more >
This will be my first ever blog post so I wish to make this very useful
This post is in regards to a certain contributor of the EBF Wiki (not naming who-shall-not-be-named) who is "breaking" the formatting of the EBF Wiki. I would prefer the one and only best source of information on the Epic Battle Fantasy series to stay in touch with the appearance of a decent Wiki, and this is related to the editing of articles.
It is irksome seeing even the smallest of mistakes (spelling, grammar, broken links, etc.) and for this example, I shall use God Hand. The topmost info of the page should not start with The God Hand. It is very informal and I would like to ask Wiki contributors to prevent from starting an article with something other tha…Read more >
Guys and gals.I am just saying that many skills or skill levels from EBF 3 are missing.I am playing right now and "farming" Glaciar Alley so I will fill the missing spots of levels in skills and make new pages if a skill is TOTALLY missing.Read more >
- Duplicate pages
- Duplicate categories
- Plural versus singular
- Inconsistent naming
- Blanket pages
- Too many topics within one page
- Pages with barely any information

- Equip stats
- Skill thumbnails

Until I can figure out how to make optional columns in tables, the skill stat tables will be done manually.
In EBF 4 I am right in front of Godcat, but still want to max out a few skills before I face it, anyone have any idea where there are battles that get you big xp?
- The glitch
- The battles in the heart of Lankyroot
- All the dragon battles

I've just wiped clean my saves and I'm starting all over again to do this walkthrough. I'll be using a grid reference for the walkthrough so viewers can just look at their maps. Can someone do the EBF3 walkthrough though?~HikariMirai~ 11:38, June 14, 2013 (UTC)Read more >
So I was looking around the place and seeing what I could edit/add and I saw something called "Forging".
I clicked it and I saw all this mass of uncreated content.
I just wanted to like, let people see it. If they're bored they can go ahead and click it and make one.
It'd be also nice to see all that content get a page.Read more >

With summer rapidly approaching and finals all but over (at least for me), I've had more time to the computer lately. I figure this is as good a time as any to start taking the Wiki seriously. In case you haven't already noticed, Chat and Achievements are now enabled for EBFWiki. The former was requested on my Talk page, and the latter is a system I'm setting up for choosing admins. The Wiki currently has two people with Administrator privileges: myself, and Caeldom. I haven't heard from Caeldom in a while, and I'm personally somewhat new at this. If there are any senior editors out there who'd like to help out, I'd be more than happy to promote you, but to be chosen you'd best get some big numbers onto that User page, whether by tons of e…Read more >

Yes, I know, this new purple theme looks abhorrent. But I didn't really like the sandy brown one, so I thought I'd change it to something a bit more Fantasy-like, for the moment, however I plan to get some homemade graphics in, and spice the whole thing up.
Anyone got ideas for the background, colour schemes etc?Read more >
What are templates? Well they are special pages that can be conveniently linked into an article, in order to achieve organisation, clarity, aesthetics, and overall faster editing. You can learn more essential information by reading this article. Most recommended if you are a frequent contributor!
If you're observant, you may have seen a few new templates being used around the wiki already. I've added them to the common templates page, all of mine notably use my Codediv template to display the usage.
Before using them, please click the name and go to the page to read the template documentation so you know exactly what to do. If you have any questions or suggestions for an existing or new template, feel free to leave a message on the template …Read more >
I've been contemplating, and I've come up with a list of ideas we should discuss.
Should we consider pre-editing some types of images? Like the items, instead of leaving them in those shots with the background, maybe photoshop them out then paste them on a generic background? We can try doing that with attacks too. It just tidies up the whole place. And we don't have these small varying image sizes of different items.
Each different type of article should really follow a specific manual of style. For example, articles on Attacks should begin with a certain identically phrased paragraph, and follow a certain content structure etc. We can type this up after.
It makes sense, rather than creating separate stub pages for every single item. The onl…
