How-To-Play Notes

  • Garland opens with Bind of Chaos to get his overhead Chains of Time active. This gives him Soul of Conflict for 3T (with his +1 buff extension). Make sure you maintain his overhead buff, don’t let the stacks reset!

    • With Chains of Time, Garland will do his follow-up attack whenever he performs an HP attack.

    • Soul of Conflict allows Garland to delay any enemy that his attacks hit by 1T!

    • As long as you spam skills, you’ll never lose this buff, since Garland’s EX recharges in 2 skills. The rest of this advice assumes you have this buff, since you should never lose it.

  • Use your free skills on Round Edge+ - it’s an AoE BRV shave & AoE delay.

  • Soul of Chaos+ is a single target BRV shave & single target delay.

  • Disaster of Chaos recharges in 2 skills as stated above. It hits hardest if Garland has a lot of BRV before hand due to the refund between HP attacks.

  • Set Soul of Conflict BRV Up can just be used before you burst for the ATK boost or before you use EX for the BRV gain.

  • BT Phase suggestion: AA > BT: EX (since you usually have battery) > LD > S1 > S1 > S2 > HP > BT+

    • Garland’s BT effect is one of the strongest in the entire game but be wary of enemies that warp or turn jump, as they will reset his BT effect stack back to 1

  • Friend Garland: BT > 4x LD
