Supplementary Notes to the Infographic Analysis:

The infographic covers the key critical points and should be reviewed prior to delving into the in-depth notes

Gameplay Notes

  • Open with Innocence to get his buffs & debuffs fully active. LD is also great when you need an AoE instant break.

  • Circle of Judgment can pretty much be spammed, it’s good for party battery, and shaves AoE BRV which is nice. This also easily upkeeps all of his debuffs.

  • Guilt is great for single target delay, or instant break (not both, if the enemy has BRV, they’ll get broken… if they are already broken, he’ll unbreak them and then break them for a delay. One or other though)

  • Quickening recharges in 2 skill uses, allowing Gabranth to spam skills for 29 turns straight (87 turn quest). To maximize damage with EX, top off his BRV because of the BRV refund between hits.

  • Protect All is excellent to use before a huge HP attack against your party, as it will reduce the damage by all-in 60%.

  • BRV/HP++ aren’t really needed due to his ability to skill spam reliably. Since S1 refunds him BRV, you’d only need BRV++ in a situation where you needed to better ensure not being broken

Team Synergy Notes

  • BRV/HP DMG up allies are excellent with Gabranth, but they are on most teams! Gabranth appreciates a battery as well. You can check these staples roles here.

Sphere Recommendations

  • A sphere - Focus on BRV DMG & ATK spheres only. Plenty to choose from!

  • B sphere - His own is premium for him, even the refined version from his EX debut but his sphere is also premium for numerous B slot holders that are defensive but don’t have the lock debuff. Kimahri & WoL spheres are steps down, but also fine.

  • E sphere - Focus on ATK. Seymour, Auron, Emperor, Yuffie are excellent.

Removable Passives

  • Break Bonus Up (small effect)

  • Buff Speed Up (not a damage dealer and his debuffs last long enough, up to you)

  • Circle of Judgment Focused Attack (only useful versus single targets)

  • BRV Attack++ HP Attack++ Up (technically he shouldn’t need to use BRV/HP attacks if you have his LD)
