Epic Battle Fantasy 2 Walkthrough

          This a complete in depth guide of everything in Epic Battle Fantasy 2. Full sword, item, bestiary, skills, upgrades, and attack descriptions. Also tips on the minigame. I will also discuss tactics for the badges. NOTE: This is a very long guide! It will make your time a lot easier though!

GAME INSTRUCTIONS
The instructions are simple. Use your mouse, and click on the command you want. If you're new, you should probably read the tutorial and learn the ropes of the game, as I can't really describe these.

CHARACTERS
There are two characters in this game. You have:
MATT-The Classic Fighter of your team. His attacks are meant to do damage, with some added bonuses. First, let's talk about swords. There are 11 different swords you can choose from, and you can switch out to a different sword when needed by clicking on the 'Sword' button and then clicking on your desired sword.

As you can see, each sword boosts a certain Bushido attack. Even though it may provide a little more damage if you switch swords to use that attack remember that it takes a whole turn to switch swords!
Next I'll talk about Matt's attacks.
Name: Attack. This is the standard attack. Costs no MP. Deals about 6,000 damage with no buffs.
Name: 'Ultimate Attack'. When his red bar gets full, the standard attack will turn into a very powerful multi hit attack.

Name: Defend. Quarters physical damage taken. Halves magic damage. Can be very useful in certain situations.

Name: Screamer-MP75

Targets all foes and lowers their magic defense.
Most effective with the: Anarchy
Power:45
Accuracy:150
Element: Dark [This skill is pretty weak for high MP cost, I would not advise using this.]


Name: Power Metal-MP100

Target all foes and heals the party.
Most effective with the: Razorback
Power:48
Accuracy:150
Element: Wind [Another pretty weak skill for the high MP cost. Don't use it unless" You need to heal both players and don't have mist potions and Natz is sealed/stunned.

NOTABLE UPGRADES! READ THIS IF YOU'RE GOING FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE BADGE! YOU WILL NEED THESE! [The order in which you get these should not really be a problem] [No descriptions included]

NOTE: If you have a situation where you are not offered any of these, use common sense on your choosing! Remember what's important and what's not! Remember that there's only 3 different choices.

-Rock Solid
-Counter
-Counterx2 [Must have already gotten Counter]
-Swordsman
-Aerial Support
-Secret Weapon
-Survivor
These ones are not as good as the above, but can help. Get them if there is nothing on the above list available.
-Chemist
-Chemistx2 [You must already have gotten Chemist]
These ones you may not be able to find. I never found them on Epic mode.
-Cat Tamer
-Cat Warrior



That was just the what I will call 'skill' section of the upgrades. Here is the what I will call 'attribute' section.



-Try to balance out what you get, but the two most important are attack and defense. Here's what I did on epic mode:
-Defense
-Then Attack
-Then Magic Defense
-Then Magic Attack
-Repeat


That basically sums up Matt! [OMFGAGFDGH look at all that! :O]

NATZ-The mage of the party. She is VERY useful.

ATTACKS

Name: Attack. A physical attack. Does around 1k HP, try not to use it too much... it's not very good...
Name: Ultimate Attack. Ultimate heal and buffs the party and debuffs the all foes. Epic ^^
Name: Defend. Same as Matt. Quarters physical damage taken and halves magic damage.


WMagic

Name: Purify-MP10.
Heals Poison, Stun, Blind and Seal.
Targets both players. [Very very useful. You will use this whenever you get sealed or get another status ailment, most commonly poison.]


Name: Heal-MP20

Heals one player. [Very useful. Always use this instead of potions unless: Natz is sealed or dead or has no MP.]


Name: Barrier-MP30

Boosts the party's Magic Defense by 60%.
IMO, it's an ok skill. Don't really use it, as you won't be attacked by magic as much as physical. Especially not on the bosses.


Name: Flare-MP50

Blinds all foes. [READ THIS: This is a very needed skill when fighting the Zombie Hydra. Try to keep them blinded at ALL times. That is probably the only place you will end up using this.]


Name: Healmore-MP70

Heals both players.
Try to use this instead of mist potions! Basically same application for Heal.


Revive-MP90

Revives fallen players. Puts living players into autolife status.
You may find yourself using this a lot on boss battles. Try to always keep Matt on autolife. When fighting Zombie Hydra, try to keep both characters on autolife!


Judgement-MP100

May debuff the foe and also heals the user.
Power:100
Accuracy:120
Element:100% Holy
I never found myself using this, so try to not use it. It costs to much MP.


BMagic [Your common magic attacks!]

Name: Lucky Star-MP20
Power:20-110
Accuracy:100
Element: None
"Unreliable, low-cost magic." [I'm going to stress the lost-cost of magic. Ignore that it says it's unreliable. I found this skill doing some incredible damage, up to 40k! With the astrology upgrades, this skill will become very powerful against any monster, maybe excluding SOME bosses. Use it when the monster you're fighting is low on HP or has no element weakness. ]


FOR THE NEXT 3: TRY TO ONLY USE ON MONSTERS THAT ARE WEAK TO THAT ELEMENT!

Name: Fireball- MP40

Power:70
Accuracy:110
Element: 100% Fire
May lower foe's magic defense.

Name: Glacier-MP40

Power:75
Accuracy:110
Element: 100% Ice


Name: Thunderbolt-MP40

Power:65
Accuracy:110
Element: 100% Thunder
May stun foes.


Name: Toxic-MP40

Power:30
Accuracy:110
Element: 100% Poison
Poisons the foe. [This will be useful against the Zombie Hydra and the Sandworm]


Name: Syphon-MP60

Power: None
Accuracy:200
Element: None
Targets all foes. Seals their magic and special abilities. [This is very useful against the guardian in blocking his regeneration. Also useful against spirits. VERY USEFUL against Lance when fighting the tank! Seal him or he can use Ion Cannon with no warning!]


Name: Pulsar-MP100

Power:92
Accuracy:150
Element: 100% Dark
Targets all foes. Inflicts massive damage. [Useful when fighting 3 monsters at once, and combines well with Matt's air strike. Definitely worth the MP100.]


SUMMON

Name: Scanbot-MP30

Scans a foe and returns info on their weaknesses, HP, and other stats. When trying for the badges, NEVER use this. I am supplying you with a complete bestiary, so only use this when you want to get the complete bestiary high score.

Name: Slime Bunny-MP50

Gives the party regeneration status, which slowly regenerates HP for a few turns.
[Very useful when going up against bosses. Use it at the end of the battle before in preparation of the boss battle]


Name: Beholder-MP70

Hits all foes and lowers their defense. Also has a hidden mode. [I never used this when going for the badge so... Just don't use it, it's pretty pointless.]


Name: Meow Meow-MP100

Attacks all foes for massive Physical damage. Sometimes does double damage and damages the party. [Don't use it, it's not worth the MP100... I never found myself to use it.]


Name: Ion-MP200

Hits all foes for extreme non-elemental magic damage. DAMAGES THE PARTY TOO. BE CAREFUL WHEN USING. Only use on bosses when you're sure they will be obliterated! I only found myself using this on the tank. And I have been able to beat the tank on epic without it.

NOTABLE UPGRADES: Stars next to them mean really important. I got these ones when getting the badge. [No descriptions included. Read Matt's upgrades for tips on choosing when not offered these.]
-Resistance*
-Angel*
-Protection (P)*
-Immunity*
-Thunderclap [For final boss]
-Resistance x2 [Have to have gotten Resistance]
-Mighty Mage*
-Counter*
-Astrology*
-Astrologyx2*
-Elusive [Not needed but can be useful]
Upgrades you may be offered but I was not...
-Bunny!
-Bunny!!!


'Attributes'

Try doing the same thing for Natz as Matt.
-Defense
-Magic Attack
-Magic Defense
-Repeat


This ends the Character section.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
ITEMS [DESCRIPTIONS AND STRATEGY!]

Name:Potion-$150 [Need to buy]

Restores HP [Around 500]


Name: Antidote-$50 [Pretty useless when you have purify... Have like 2 just in case]

Name: Max Potion-$350 [Meh... okay.]

Name: Water of Life-$1,000 [NEEDED!!!]

Poisons foes


Name: Stunner-$300 [NEVER buy. Sell these!]

Stuns foes


Name: Bomb-$500 [NEVER buy. Sell these!]

Deals damage


As you can see, I have details beside the item. The items you should only ever buy are potions, ethers, and water of life. You can buy mist potions, but only ever have 2 or 3 on you. Have around 10 potions, and maybe 2 max potions. Have 6-8 ethers, and the rest goes into water of life! They will save you many times... For emergency, have about 2 antidotes.
REMEMBER: ALWAYS SPEND ALL OF YOUR MONEY!!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------
MINIGAME TIP:

Gather all the money you can. Use the aerial attack when there's monsters coming up on top of you. USEFUL: When you are low on health [1, perhaps 2 left] stand on the side and use the spear range attack and wait for something to drop a heart. Don't go for the heart if it means dying!

--------------------------------------------------------------------
EPIC MODE TIPS
These are important things to know while in epic mode, along with some other stuff. Firstly:

USE THE BLOOD BLADE. THE BLOOD BLADE AND COUNTER WILL HEAL ALMOST ALL YOUR HP FOR MATT. IMPORTANT!


Before boss fights, try to put Slime Bunny on, as it will automatically regenerate your HP. Autolife is also important in boss fights, especially the last three. Air strike should be one of your most commonly used moves, and try to save the ultimate attacks for boss fights.


Tips on the Boss Fights:
Guardian: One of the nastier bosses. If on the last fight of the previous stage you make sure you have your ultimate attacks charged, slime bunny, buffs, and autolife up, you’ll have an easier time. Nat’z heal/buff makes a big difference between the robot being able to kill both players instantly with a sword swipe and machine gun burst or not. Use Syphon until the robot’s ability to regenerate is blocked. A certain amount of pure luck with Syphon actually working is needed. It’s entirely possible to get mowed down after five Syphons fail to seal its regenerate.
Golem:
Seems harder than it is. Just hit it hard and heal when you're at low HP.
Worm boss:
Poison works fabulously against this one. Wield Black Fang and use Unleash, cast Toxic, be careful about having autolife on, and it’ll soon be taking tens of thousands of damage each round from poison. Then you can switch bak to the Blood Blade.
Change swords from the Blood Blade to Heaven's Gate. This will make it much easier. It has as an instant-kill, so using revive to keep autolife up takes priority over all other things. It can use the instant-kill twice in a row, so without autolife it can and will try to kill both players in a single turn. Get both heads down to low health, then finish off with Pulsar and Aerial strike or two strong separate attacks from Matt and Natz.

Hydra:
Tank:
Always have autolife up on Matt, if not both characters. Try to focus on the bottom part, unless you get a nuke or a cooler. The cooler's can deal a load of damage along with poison and freeze, so take them out ASAP. When a nuke appears, focus all firepower on it. Keep air striking. That's about it. And remember, this also involves a bit of luck, so keep trying!

This is ridiculous.

Either make the entire article's font size "Smallest", or remove around 25% of the info in this thing.

:/

SuperGiantsFan said...

Hip said it was fine, so pooey you.

hipcheck said...

Wow Sgf this is great but its takin up the entire page lol. If you can change the font size or make a link that allows you to read more or something that would be great that way people could see other things lol.

SuperGiantsFan said...

Mmk, I changed the font size and edited it a little bit. Not much smaller though... And I tried to try putting links, but I wrote it all with no other links involved, so I couldn't do that. Hope it's a little better

Eric said...

Wow... Good and thorough but really, really long...

hipcheck said...

This is much better and i tried with the links as well and could not figure it out.

PlatinumIce said...

Hey, here's a suggestion about the length (and I'm probably really late, but...): Go make another blog named something like "Battle Fantasy 2 Guide" or something to that effect and post the full guide there, no links, normal font size, everything (possibly divided into multiple posts for ease of access. Then come back and make a blog post here with just the link to the site, or maybe several links. One for characters, one for boss battles, one for epic mode, etc etc.

Just a suggestion though.

Oh, and almost forgot: AWESOME guide. By far the best guide I've seen for a game, probably ever for a Flash game. :O

Anonymous said...

Uhh, you do know you get skills from using them, right?... If you summon legless 5 times in a game, your GONNA get his skill, guarenteed... Duh...

Anonymous said...

Ok Good Walkthru But alot Of worthless Shit thrown In you dont Have to describe the stats of every damn item and sword when there right there in the game Jeez What a waste of Time!

Anonymous said...

llirbwerdnadivad said...

XD You put 500 instead of 5,000 for the Potion...might wanna fix that!

Anonymous said...

i think it was great and thanks for the help i really needed the bestiary and for those of you who think it was too much i disagree it gave help with everything we need and putting the stuff about the items is just mor help incase if you dont have time to be looking at the items and you just want to go through the quick
