The Crystal Staff is a non-elemental staff available for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4. It is Natalie's signature weapon, used by her ever since Epic Battle Fantasy (though in Epic Battle Fantasy 2 it appeared only briefly), and being her default staff equipped in subsequent games.
The Crystal Staff is a slightly curved wooden staff with white bindings around the middle and a head made of three "branches" of different shapes and sizes. A large blue crystal rests between the upper two branches, with a red bow tied to the head beneath it.
The Crystal Staff offers Natalie rather balanced bonuses and has no distinctive weakness. While its Magic Attack boost is higher than most of Natalie's other staves, it lacks an attachment to any particular element that it could boost the power of. It also increases the amount of user's MP. Its main utility lies in providing Natalie with resistance against the three most common elements in the series: Fire, Thunder, and Ice. Because of its versatility, the Crystal Staff is often useful throughout entire game.
Epic Battle Fantasy 3
The Crystal Staff is available from the beginning of the game as Natalie's default weapon.
Epic Battle Fantasy 4
The Crystal Staff remains largely unchanged from previous game, however, its Lucky Star counter attack has been replaced by Dispel. It is unlocked when Natalie joins the team in Ashwood Forest, being once again her default weapon.
|A balanced staff used by many mages. May dispel targets.|
