Overview

The eldest of the royal family, Gala Leonidas rains down fire as Flame’s first Manacaster user. As a rapid-fire Manacaster, Leonidas lets loose an unending barrage of bullets that breaks bosses like no other. Like his Manacaster peers, Leon introduces a new status effect that accords him additional damage without overloading on Burn. 

Dropping alongside Legend Volk, Leonidas remains a powerful option for quickly breaking the boss and pushing maximum damage before Berserk mode. In solo settings, his Chain Co-ability synergizes well with Shapeshift focused units like Gala Mym.


Note: Although Leonidas always Shapeshifts into Mars, this Mars does not gain the special effects of Gala Mars, unless of course the Gala version is equipped.

Strengths

Shreds Overdrive  

Between Gauge Accelerator, Ruthless Ignition, and a torrent of bullets, Leonidas has no equal when it comes to cracking bosses wide open. 

Strong Scaling 

With an innate Scorchrent Punisher, Leonidas enjoys increased damage that’s independent of Burn. Fully stacked Skill 2 also offers permanent* power and tankiness. 

Dual Immunity 

Leonidas can freely eat either of Volk’s Stun/Sleep bombs and isn’t punished for taking stray hits (unless Plagued).

Weaknesses

Skill 2 Consumption 

Reaching Skill 2 Lv. 5 heavily discourages Shapeshifting, as doing so will consume the entire buff. This is somewhat offset by having another Shapeshift available shortly after.

Immobile

Leonidas is completely stationary when firing his Force Strike, and poor positioning can lead to frequent interruptions. 

Dragon Recommendations

Gala Mars: It should come as no surprise that these two go well together. Gala Mars’s effect is great for pushing fast Skill 2 stacks.

DK Rathalos meshes perfectly with G!Leon's rapid-fire Force Strike style.

Apollo assumes high Burn uptime from allies.

Weapon Recommendations

Budget option: Chanzelian Caster Mk. 65

Wyrmprint Recommendations

Pair 1

Lance's Boon's +5% Force Strike bonus allows the third 5★ slot to be flexible. 

Crit Rate/Damage picks scale exceedingly well due to the high volume of outgoing hits.

Skill 2

Absolute Dominion
Lvl 1 Deals damage to surrounding enemies, dispels one buff from each target, and grants the user the "Draconian Grace" effect. Draconian Grace has five progressively more powerful levels. Lv. 1: For 40 seconds, reduces damage taken by 10%. Lv. 2: For 40 seconds, increases strength by 5%, and reduces damage taken by 10%. Lv. 3: For 40 seconds, increases strength by 5%, and reduces damage taken by 15%. Lv. 4: For 40 seconds, increases strength by 10%, and reduces damage taken by 20%. Lv. 5: For the remainder of the quest, increases strength by 10%, and reduces damage taken by 20%. If Draconian Grace is granted while already active, it will be raised one level. Conversely, it will be lowered one level when the effect's remaining time is depleted. If the effect is at level one when this time is depleted, it will instead be removed entirely.
