The Rune Blade in EBF1 and 2.

Rune blade V4

The Rune Blade in EBF3 and 4, now without what gave it the name.

The Rune Blade is a recurring Holy-element weapon in the Epic Battle Fantasy series.

Description

The Rune Blade is a white and black long sword with a slimmer design than the Heaven's Gate, Matt's other Holy-elemental weapon.

Unlike most of Matt's other weapons, the Rune Blade gives him a massive boost to his lackluster Magic Attack, while giving him little bonus (or even a penalty) in Attack. It also can drain MP with weapon-elemental attacks. Its resistances and other stat bonuses vary between games, but are typically biased towards magic.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Rune Blade is given after completing a quest for ???. It now resists Syphon and Dispel instead of Dark, Death and Doom, and it gives a much higher boost to Magic Attack.

The Equilibrium sword (exclusive to post-Battle Mountain update version of the Premium Pack), given for beating all four boss rushes at the summit of Battle Mountain, can be called an upgrade from the Rune Blade, having even higher Magic Attack boost and twice the Syphon infliction chance, though it lacks several Rune Blade features like MP drain.
