"I, Garland, will knock you all down!!" —Garland. generalinformation Courtesy of the FFBraveExvius Reddit Wiki STATS AFFINITIES SPELLS ABILITIES unitoverview HE IS BIG, HE IS BAD AND HE WILL CAUSE YOU PAIN. The first villain in Final Fantasy history is, simply put, a physical powerhouse. Garland has been given many tools that make him a force to be reckoned with in the physical side of the game, allowing him to easily slide in the role of a bulky physical threat or an off-tank. From a statistical standpoint, Garland features one the highest Attack values in the game currently and very high HP and Defense stats. This stat distribution complements his skillset, which focuses heavily on physical attacking and damage mitigation, very well. Garland's attacking tools include the mighty Darkness, one of the strongest AoE physical nukes available in the current metagame and Doublehand to boost his already gargantuan physical prowess. The original Final Fantasy villain also has some interesting defensive tools, but lacks the proper depth to work as a full tank. But even if he lacks the tools to be a full-time tank, things like the amazing Auto-Protect, the always useful Power Break and the interesting Mediguard provide him with enough bulkiness to cement his role as a durable physical threat and secondary tank. His equipment selection, while restricted, is also perfectly suitable for his needs. His's Trust Master reward (Equip L Sword) can be a useful tool situationally for those who have powerful swords laying around and want to expand the list of units able to wield them. Overall, Garland is outclassed by Bartz and Cloud of Darkness as a physical attacker, but is still a force to be reckoned with.
