He's right up there with Chizuru which is good for him. Unfortunately, this is all that he's got. He's got a really huge problem which I will discuss in a later part of this post. But, besides solid stats overall. That's about all he's got going for him in his movepool. Cons: Gaffgarion suffers the Dark Knight problem, which is he loses a % of HP if he were to use the skills effected by it. He does have alternatives like Duskblade, and Bladeblitz, But, for his maximum damage potential as a unit he would have to either use Unholy Sacrifice or Darkside which both make him lose HP in content now, HP is relatively important to have you could argue that have a healer that could heal alot is fine. But, most healers (Garnet & Lenna for example) aren't healing for 2K unless TMs are involved. Because of this Gaffgarion becomes a dangerous unit to use as he could be focused to death even after being healed from his attack by a healer to death. He generically reduces his survival rate when he loses these moves. In the very least, his LB does heal 100% of the damage taken from the enemy which he can self serve himself in that regard. But, it's not spammable so yeah. Trust Mastery Award: Bracer is great for offensive units, as it's the current highest boost that can be recieved from TM items that are accessories which is always nice and even gives them a nice HP +15% to help them live longer. This is even a welcomed addiction to offensive tanks like Leo, and WoL if you built him that way. So, I would grind for this TM if you have the time. Comparing to Other Units: - Garland Garland has a higher ATK due to his innate ability of Doublehand. Gaffgarion has more useful moves while Garland only has Darkside Gaffgarion has passives to ATK/HP, while Garland only has his boost from Doublehand. Overall Verdict: Gaffgarion would actually be better than Garland if offensive options were what you was looking for cause of him having Bladeblitz, and Duskblade. Garlands only main offensive move is Darkside which he HAS to use it if you want maximum damage potential for your units which sucks really. Garland easily would have more attack than Gaffgarion due to him having Doublehand. But, with next to no offensive pressure then the boost is not well as appreciated on him. Conclusion: Gaffgarion is a overall meh pull, not to be excited when you pull him in gacha. I would just use him for TM and nothing else really.
