"Pierce the heavens with your drill!"
―Kamina, Epic Battle Fantasy 3

Giga Drill (also known as Tera Drill) is an Earth-elemental special skill available for Matt and Lance in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4.

Description

Upon casting, a huge drill erupts beneath the target, making a loud creak, and dealing massive Earth-elemental physical damage.

Unlike other skills, Giga Drill's damage increases if the target has its Defence and/or Magic Defence buffed, and in EBF4 also triples if the target has the Defend status effect. Thanks to this, the skill proves very useful against enemies that tend to buff their and their allies' defences, including some bosses. Inversely, Giga Drill deals less damage if the target is suffering from a debuff in Defence and/or Magic Defence, possibly dealing zero damage in EBF4, or even healing the target in EBF3.

Drill Golem and Dark Matt are also capable of using Giga Drill.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

Tera Drill is unlocked by completing a quest in Kitten Kingdom Ruins for Kamina.

EBF3 Skill Tera Drill
Tera Drill Element Type
Attack that does more damage if the foe has buffed defence or magic defence, or especially both. High critical hit rate. 25% Element Earth Stat Attack
Level Power MP AP Cost
1 60 18 1000
2 100 24 3000

The formula for its actual power is: SkillPower * (1 + (DefenceBuff * 4 + MagicDefenceBuff * 4) / 100). With 70% Defence and Magic Defence buffs, this results in 6.6x damage.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Tera Drill has been renamed into Giga Drill, and can be obtained by complating a quest in Crystal Caverns for Simon. The skill received a few changes: Defending now powers it up as well, but its critical hit chance and power increase from buffs has been slightly lowered.

EBF4 Skill Giga Drill
Giga Drill Element Type
Does more damage if the target has buffed defence or magic defence, or is defending. 25% Element Earth Stat Attack
Level Power MP AP Cost
1 60 12 300
2 90 18 1000
3 120 24 3000
4 150 30 9000

The formula for its actual power is: SkillPower * (1 + (DefenceBuff * 3.5 + MagicDefenceBuff * 3.5) / 100), with an additional multiplier of 3 on top of that if the target is Defending; if power goes negative, it'd become 0 instead. With 70% Defence and Magic Defence buffs, this results in 5.9x damage, with Defend increasing that to 17.7x damage.

Trivia

  • Giga Drill is a reference to Giga Drill Break from animé Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
