The Undying Monolith is a foe that appears in Epic Battle Fantasy 4, mostly on the Graybone Cemetery. It is a member of the monolith enemy class.

Appearance

The Undying Monolith is a massive grey tombstone covered in runes. A spinal column and a horned skull are merged with the stone, with a round red crystal in the skull's mouth. Several more bones are present around the base of the Monolith, half-buried in the ground.

The Undying Monolith's skull moves slightly in battle, making it one of two Monoliths with an idle animation, the other being Cosmic Monolith.

Overview

Like other Monoliths, the Undying Monolith is a rather threatening foe, with a bunch of powerful attacks, high amount of HP, numerous resistances, and few weaknesses. However, because of its immobility, it has a very low Evade stat.

It specializes in causing status problems such as Poison, Doom, and Curse. When it charges up, it will cast Death Spike on the party, hitting all of them for moderate damage and a chance of Instant Death.

Notes: Used every four turns if able, indicated by the Charge status the turn prior.
Due to a bug in its targetting, instead of attacking each player once, it will attack the player in 2nd slot (middle) once and the player in 3rd slot (bottom) twice, completely ignoring the slot 1 (top) player, even if he is the only one alive.

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.

  • Spent 3 turns without Charge status → Charge on the same turn;
  • Syphoned → Nothing;
  • Charged → Death Spike x3;
  • Otherwise → Flying Skulls (1/3), Bones (1/3), The Dead (1/3).
