    FIRION IS THE UNCROWNED KING OF DRAINS. The Final Fantasy 2 protagonist arrives at Brave Exvius with a plethora of HP and MP drain skills coming out of both his high ATK stat and his respectable INT stat. But more importantly, he has the markings of a respectable and versatile physical attacker that is worthy of consideration during team building.

    Firion has moderate to high stats across the board, with his Attack of 102 (higher than Bartz's, for example) and his HP of 2721 (only slightly lower than Cecil's) being the highlights. However, his Defense, Intelligence and Spirit stats are also very respectable. Coupled with the very good selection of equipment Firion has available, this makes Firion a very versatile character from a statistical standpoint.

    The variety of drain skills available to Firion is very likely the first thing one will notice when looking at his skillset. He has skills that allow him to drain HP and MP based on both his ATK and INT stats, which allow to drain consistently from most enemies he faces. This increases his sustainability considerably and can keep him going for a while even in critical situations.

    Other than his drains, Firion has access to Paralysis in the form of Blade Bash, a strong physical nuke in Blade Blitz and a Heal Over Time in the form of Regen, helping cement his usefulness as a versatile physical attacker. While Firion has to live in the shadows of the likes of Bartz and Cloud of Darkness as a physical threat in the current metagame, he still can do a respectable job filling the role of a bulky attacker.

    Firion's Trust Master reward (Equip Heavy Armor) has limited usefulness in comparison with some of the other rewards available, but can still be useful situationally.

    Awesome job! Love the images used for the tables and stuff. Looks neat. :D

    Firion is an awesome character, I always enjoy abusing one of my friends' Firions. Blade Blitz in ADV EXP Vortex just destroys the stages.

    It was more out of necessity than anything else. XD I was doing the tables with BB Code like you guys, but Firefox crashed and I lost progress. I was like no way in hell I'm doing all that again. lol So I just set the tables in excel and took screenshots.

    Ohh. Ouch I hate it when that happens. I'm always pre-writing it in Notepad now before posting it and saving it on my HDD just in case. I just 'preview' the post from time to time to see if it looks correctly.

    Well, he usefull more when his 6* come but to reach his rating 96/100 on Altema.
    You must wait a little long...when enchanment skill system open..6 or 7 months for GL.
