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.

Obtainable as a 4
Ranzal is 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 F2P pick for any type of content, despite his reduced strength stat.
Between his high HP, Last Defense, a shield Skill, and the Axe Co-Ability, Ranzal is tough to fell.
Strong wave clear
Thanks to axe weapons wide swings and large force strikes, along with his Slayer's Strength skill, Ranzal excels in situations where there are many foes for him take on at once.
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 up time.
Poor single-target damage
Ranzal relies on his Slayer's Strength skill to bolster his weak damage, due to his low stats for his rarity. In situations with a single enemy or few adds, his performance is poor.
- Zephyr: The very best DPS dragon for Ranzal's relatively poor Strength stat.
- Roc: A 4★ alternative that is superior to other choices when MUB.
- High Midgardsormr: The F2P dragon of choice for Ranzal, though he requires a lot of grinding to obtain.
- Axe of the Southern Cross: If you plan on tackling End Game content with Ranzal, this is the best way to make up for his low stats.
- Stormwrath Gaze: The Void axe from Zephyr, this budge option is viable thanks to its excellent abilities, but it has low stats.
- Winged Destruction: A budget option for non-Endgame Content.
- Skill Damage - Plunder Pals, Heralds of Hinomoto, Resounding Rendition, Luca's Prank, Witch's Kitchen, Tough Love, Valiant Crown, Saintly Delivery, Silke Lends a Hand, Revolutionary Magic, Happier Times, Warlust, Fresh Perspective, Flower in the Fray, Together We Stand, Liber Grimortis, Mana Fount, Hitting the Books
- Force Strikes - Stellar Show, Nightstalker, Lunar Festivities, The Warrioresses, Fresh Perspective, Alberian Banner
- HP 70% = Strength Up - Jewels of the Sun, Crystalian Envoy, First-Rate Hospitality, Better Together
Ranzal is desperate for more damage, usually via Skill Damage and Strength buffs. If you wish to break the boss faster, Force Strike buffs are also a good choice.
