Overview

Living up to his name, the Valentine’s Guardian takes a defensive approach to the support role. While teamwide Defense buffs have been mostly relegated to Lance and Axe users, Orion becomes the first Sword Adventurer to fill this niche. Although held back by low stats and misplaced Curse Res, The Valentine’s version of Orion stays true to his base form with close-range damage and a reliable Affliction.

Strengths

Accessible Burn

A low-SP attack that inflicts Burn upon upgrade enables ample Burning uptime.

Self-sufficient Doublebuff

Not only does Orion increase the entire team’s defense, but he also benefits directly with Strength Doublebuff. Defense is also much appreciated by Sword users with their bold attacking style.

Weaknesses

Curse Res

Along with being off-element, Zodiark resists Burn completely, so Orion’s kit has no context in which to thrive.

Hybrid Kit

Being an all-around Support character means Orion isn’t set up to excel at damage or healing, so his contributions aren’t as noticeable. A Flame Sword user also faces tough competition with Naveed, Karl, and Euden.

Dragon Recommendations

  • Prometheus or High Brunhilda will help a Sword user who gets up close to the enemy.
  • Agni and Cerberus, of course, are the prime Strength options.
  • Ifrit, Pele, and Brunhilda make good budget options.
