About

A skilled mercenary whose sloppy appearance and careless tongue can make for a sour first impression—although he always acts with honor and conviction in the end. He's been known to occasionally cut a little TOO loose at banquets.

Overview

Ranzal is a pillar of the Wind category, being the free 4★ Adventurer obtained in the Story Campaign. With tankiness, Slayer’s Strength, and even more tankiness, Ranzal is a hardy mercenary with defensive boosts that spill over to guard the whole team. His Axe is especially compatible with Slayer’s Strength, being a multi-target sweeping weapon, and the knockback from its Force Strike slows down oncoming assaults. The Freeze-Resistant Johanna may have him beat in Water IO, but Ranzal is still a solid all-around pick for any type of content.

Strengths

Incredibly Sturdy

Between his high HP, Last Defense, a shield Skill, and the Axe Co-Ability, Ranzal is tough to fell.

Bog Res

Ranzal, Pia, and Lin You are all strong High Mercury candidates thanks to full Bog Res and their defensive Co-Abilities. Ranzal being the most accessible of the three means he’s likely to star on many teams.  

Weaknesses

Middling Damage

Having subpar stats for his rarity, Ranzal is strictly outclassed by the lightning-fast Lin You. Other weapon types for Wind can hit harder or faster, putting Ranzal at a disadvantage given the timed nature of most Quests.

Costly Shield

The 7288 SP cost for Storm Wall-- compounded by low SP gains from Axes-- means it won’t be in play much. This is justified when it blocks up to 30% of maximum HP, but teammates who rely on maintaining HP thresholds prefer more uptime.

Dragon Recommendations

  • Zephyr and Roc will push Ranzal towards the DPS category.
  • High Midgardsormr, meanwhile, compliments Ranzal’s balanced stats.
  • Tsumuji and Midgardsormr are usable budget options.
