Team Synergy Notes
Tanks are Gau’s best friend, provided they don’t dodge. His counters won’t trigger if the enemy’s attack misses. It’s best if they battery… and thankfully Guy, WoL, Gladio, & Basch all battery in addition to their tanking prowess. Just note that Gau doesn’t need a tank whatsoever.
Don’t expect to bring Gau if your strategy is to employ huge delays. Gau specializes in countering and dealing damage when it’s not his turn.
A spheres - Focus on BRV DMG & ATK completely, don’t be distracted by other stats. BRV DMG like his own is best and has a good edge over ATK, but both are great.
E sphere - Focus ATK specifically, any of them are fine as long as they are 6 turn durations on debuff (Yuffie’s isn’t a great choice since he only imperils from EX & LD).
Note that Gau is a reasonable choice for Vanille’s sphere if you haven’t used it. This sphere is generally overhyped and it’s better utilized on other characters, but you also could argue that those characters are all heavy damage dealers that may want ATK on their E slot. Up to you!
Removable Passives (to remove if you run out of CP space)
BRV Attack++ HP Attack++ Up - you will never use or need this on Gau. Never. Remove it & don’t look back.
Buff Speed Up should probably stay equipped since Gau is average speed, and taking this off will make him very slow. It makes no change to his EX recharge
Break Bonus Up should probably stay equipped since Gau inflicts breaks often
