  • Gunter’s New exclusive Inveterate Axe gives him good support utility, especially when refined. This build aims to take advantage of this to allow him to support his team while becoming a reasonably formidable wall, should he need to take a hit.
  • For Gunter’s A slot, most Defensive A slots such as Steady Stance or Sturdy Stance will work well for him. He can also utilize Bonds to further fortify his offensive and defensive prowess when adjacent to an ally. In addition, defense scaling specials are ideal for Gunter, as they have extremely consistent damage output thanks to his high Defense.
  • As Gunter’s Inveterate Axe has a Dual Chill built in, an additional Chill such as Chill Spd and Chill Res is ideal to further bolster his Chill Support. If one wishes to increase his self sufficiency, they can also opt for Lull Atk/Def to increase his durability and damage output.
  • Most support C slots, such as Distant Guard, Goad Cavalry, and Spd Opening 3 all give Gunter even more supportive utility.
  • Finally, Gunter can opt for an additional support seal or another Bond skill to increase his offensive prowess further.

Strengths

Inveterate Axe

Gunter’s Inveterate Axe is a very potent weapon, granting him Chill Atk/Def if his HP is above or equal to 50%. In addition, it also allows him to support nearby Cavalry and Infantry allies by boosting their Attack and Defense by 4 as long as they’re within two spaces, and he also gains these bonuses for himself.

Cavalry

As a Cavalry unit, Gunter gains access to powerful class exclusive buffs such as Hone Cavalry, in addition to enhanced movement.

Weaknesses

Horrible Speed/Resistance

While Gunter’s Attack and Defense are reasonably high, he’ll truly struggle to take any form of magical damage without the use of Resistance increasing skills such as Atk/Res bond, and his low Speed leaves him vulnerable to follow-up attacks from all but the slowest of foes.

Cavalry

Gunter’s status as a cavalry unit also gives him a number of innate weaknesses, such as severe terrain penalties, limited skill access, and a weakness to cavalry effective weaponry.
