Wrath of Bread Alone is the name of a negative sealstone in Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria. It is located in the Palace of the Venerated Dragon.

Cost to restore: 1,200 crystals
Location: Held by enemy
Effect: The user recovers HP when attacking (1/8 of the damage dealt). However, the Battle Menu is disabled.

This sealstone is detrimental when set in a dais, as enemies are obviously not crippled by the restriction on the Battle Menu. Holding the sealstone is not an advantage either, as the HP recovery is not enough to compensate for the loss of the Menu. It is, however, one of the three options (the others are Stone-Hurler Wrath and Wrath of Forcefulness) to solve a puzzle in the dungeon which requires you to hold a certain sealstone to open a passage sealed by a glyph. This sealstone is referred to in the instructions to the puzzle as "vampire" (its effect is equivalent to draining part of the enemy's HP with each attack). You may choose to carry it for this purpose, but otherwise, it is not worth restoring, as it is not cheap.

MiscellaneousEdit

  • The name of this sealstone is most likely based on the expression "man does not live on bread alone", which means that humans have needs beyond the physical ones. In this case, it refers to the fact that your team needs the Battle Menu, and it is not enough for them to recover HP while attacking (as if they were eating).
  • The word "wrath" designates this sealstone as negative, but it behaves more like a neutral one (the ones with "law" in their name), in that it involves a tradeoff: both a beneficial and a detrimental effect. In this case, it may be classified as negative because the detrimental effect outweighs the beneficial one. Stone-Hurler Wrath and Wrath of Forcefulness share this naming peculiarity.
  • Wrath of Bread Alone, Stone-Hurler Wrath and Wrath of Forcefulness are also the only negative sealstones that benefit the enemies by being set on a dais.
