General Thoughts

Garland is a strong frontline attacker with high health. Garland does 50% bonus damage against humans and has counter. With power break, you can reduce enemy physical damage by 15% for 3 turns. Mediguard and Defend aren’t the best skills for offense, but can save his life against very strong bosses. Without a doubt, his best ability is the doublehand, which gives him 50% atk stat of the weapons he equips. This will boosts his attack stat by quite a bit!

Garland also has a powerful AoE physical damage skill in Darkness. With Auto-Protect at the start of every round, Garland is beefy and will take less physical damage. If you are able to buff up his spirit stats, he will pretty much be unkillable. In terms of magical attacks, he can learn stonga and firaga, which is good enough as he can dish out some magic damage when the situation calls for it.

His limit burst is AoE physical dark damage. This element is great as you won’t see too many enemies resistant to dark.

On the downside, Garland doesn’t have ability slots and that really cripples his diversity. He also can’t learn green magic, which isn’t too big of a deal. His trust master reward is also not the best, as most front line characters can use great sword.

Verdict: Max him unless you pulled Cloud of Darkness. Garland is much stronger than your starters Rain and Lasswell.


LB Drops are crystal drops that fills up your limit burst.

A terrible creature who was once a knight from another world. He kidnapped the princess of his kingdom, Princess Sarah, and barricaded himself and the princess in the Chaos Shrine, until he was eventually struck down by the Warriors of Light. But instead of meeting death’s final embrace, Garland was pulled back in time to be reborn, two thousand years in the past, as the being known as Chaos. To maintain his immortal existence, he sends the four fiends-one for each of the elements: wind, water, earth and fire-into the future, to appear every two centuries to drain power from the Crystals and bring eternity within his grasp.
