Seriously though, Gordin looks really underrated. His BST and stat spread look eh, his refine appears to be somewhat weak, and he’s obviously loaded with meme potential thanks to that OVA. He also generally pales in comparison to L!Alm as an offensive archer, who I have at +10 +Spd.
But he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve:
- A Prf with a Brave effect, good weapon type/color and deceptively good power/value in its refine
- Notably high Defense
- Can be blessed (unlike )
He looks rather viable for AR and cheesing higher-difficulty PvE battles. In some cases he may perform even better than L!Alm simply due to his Prf’s Brave weapon effect blocking enemy attacks. He can also take a physical hit nicely, and has a Prf that is much more flexible and potentially more supportive than Klein’s ().
Here’s what I drafted up for him:
With the above build, he will shred most lower Defense opponents before they can do anything. He can’t do much to an outright beefy tank like Idunn, but that’s where Bonfire comes in. Maybe I could run him alongside Duo Fonse or IP allies to ramp him up for on-demand , or something.
Anyway, does he seem like a good investment? And what about the above build could be better? He’d be primarily used for AR and cheesing more difficult PvE maps. I only saw one other post with the
gordin tag on here, so some feedback would be appreciated, thanks!
