“Giant spiders infused with tremendous magical strength. Their venom is lethal.”
—In-game description from The Sacred Stones.
Thee Elder Bael (エルダバール Eruda bāru) is an enemy-only Monster class that is exclusive to The Sacred Stones. A breed of gargantuan spiders that is enlarged through the interference of fell magic, Elder Baels are the promoted form of the Bael class, employing their pincers and claws to inflict damage on their foes. More powerful and far deadlier than their unpromoted counterparts, Elder Baels are marked by a crimson colour scheme to highlight the danger that they present to players.
Due to having massive reserves of HP, high Defense and low Resistance, magic users are well-suited to destroying Baels. While their Hit Rate may be substandard, their standard Claws deal significant damage, and their other variants, the Poison Claw and Lethal Talon, inflict the Poison status with each successful strike as well. Fast, agile physical units, particularly Swordmasters, are capable of holding their attention without significant risk for prolonged periods of time.
- It is interesting to note that Elder Baels have exactly the same stat caps as their unpromoted counterparts, with the exception of HP (Baels have a cap of 60).
