5☆ Guardians – Glaverow Volcanic Zone


Note: All type recommendations exclude Ace and Cool type, as Ace is always the best type, and Cool is just average performance, neither strengthen nor hinder a Guardian’s abilities.

Recommended Skills: Skill 2, Skill 4, Skill 5

Ifrit naturally has high ATK and high DEF, so he’s more fit as physical damage dealer. Especially because of his Fire element, he can be very useful against other Fire element with low DEF (Phoenix, for example). Even for Powerful Ifrit (ATK boost), it’s a good idea to still keep Skill 2 (Fire+3) and Skill 5 (Fire+4) just because +2 attacks are too weak against 4 and 5. Skill 2 can be replaced with Strong Physical +4 with skill magic stone for low WIS types.

Type Recommendation:

Type
Comments
Chaotic
Tanking physical damage dealer build.
Sexy
Not optimal , since his MP is enough to cast +4 skills twice already.
Powerful
Strong physical damage dealer.
Brave
Tanking build, but can only cast +4 skills once without magic stone boost.
Fast
Not optimal , since he can’t be much faster, and it sacrifices his defense.
Intelligent
Used as elemental damage dealer, but won’t be as strong as Powerful type.

Skill 5
Chain Lightning (Lightning +4)

Recommended Skills: Skill 2, Skill 3, Skill 5

Although Lightning Lord’s base ATK is higher than WIS, with G Cunning (WIS+20%) buff and only lightning attack skills, he is still an elemental damage dealer. Lightning+3 can be replaced with another elemental+4 skill with skill magic stone for strong elemental damage dealing, especially Wind or Darkness. If you really want to build Lightning Lord as a physical damage dealing (for example, powerful), it may be a good idea to replace Lightning+3 with Strong Physical +4.

Juggernaut is pure physical damage dealer. His WIS is very low, and doesn’t have elemental attack skills. Some people have chosen to keep Skill 3 (DEF+20%) instead of Skill 5 (DEF-20%). If you want your Juggernaut to be a heavy damage dealer with higher probability of one shot kills, you should keep Skill 5. Skill 3 is probably better for tanking build. Brave type cannot cast +4 skill twice even without buff and debuff.

Type Recommendation:

Comments
Chaotic
Good tanking build, since he doesn’t use elemental attack.
Sexy
Possible to cast +4 skills twice with magic stone boosting, but sacrifices defense.
Powerful
Slow but very powerful attacker.
Brave
Tanking build.
Fast
Not optimal , since he is still pretty slow with the boost.
Intelligent
Not optimal , since he doesn’t use elemental attacks.

Recommended Skills: Skill 3, Skill 4, Skill 5

Dominion is arguably the highest stats 5-star so far in the English version (Bahamut hasn’t been introduced yet). Her base WIS is higher than ATK but has G Might (ATK+20%), so she can be used either physically or elementally. For physical usage, I recommend replacing Vanish (Light+4) with Strong Physical +4 (or +3 is not bad either). For elemental usage, G Might (ATK+20%) can be replaced with another elemental +4 skill using skill magic stone, especially Int type.

Type Recommendation:

Comments

Tanking build for physical damage dealer. Best if add Strong Physical+3/4 with skill magic stone.
Sexy
Can cast +4 skill twice without magic stone boosts, but sacrifice some defense.
Powerful
Good for physical damage dealer build.
Brave
Tanking build.
Fast
Fast attacker build, with sacrifice of some DEF. This is not too bad since she has G Protect (DEF+20%).
Intelligent
Elemental damage dealer build.

Meph’s HP and ATK are very low, which means he’s best as a fast elemental damage dealer. Cool type Meph can cast +4 skill twice with the buff skill casted, so Sexy type wouldn’t be very useful.

Not optimal , since it hinders his elemental damage.

Brave
Good tanking build, only need MP+40 boost with magic stones to cast +4 skill twice.
Fast
Fast attacker build, but is glass cannon.
Intelligent
Strong elemental damage dealer.

    1. High WIS will help boost defense when against elemental attacks, but not physical skill attacks or normal attacks.

  8. Hi, what would you recommend for a powerful bahamut? I see that his higher skills are more a caster though he does have +20 atk buff.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. First off, lucky you.
      Bahamut actually gets both ATK and WIS +20%. His base ATK stats are a good amount higher though. A powerful one prob has almost 500 more ATK.
      The best thing would be to try to find a +4 physical for him. In the meantime keep ATK/WIS+20% and the darkness+4.
      He needs 220 more mp to cast twice. However with his ATK boost his physically attacks already deal decent dmg. And when u make him physical, the WIS buff can provide a bit of magic defense.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the suggestion! Never knew wisdom aids in magic def.

  9. Hey Kingsley can you confirm what Silhouette the Bahamut was?

  15. Hi Windy, I want to ask why my powerful ifrit can't cast meteor +4 ? It keeps casting explosion +3 until it runs out of mana, and then physical attack.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If a Guardian can kill the opponent with +3 kill, it won't use a +4 skill.

      Delete
    2. Will it be better if I change explosion fire +3 to physical? My atk is 3114 while wisdom is only 2300 and yet it's doing more fire+3.

      Delete
    3. yes, that's definitely a very good idea.

  16. Yo windy . I got fast lighting lord It's better to get rid of g heal..?

  17. Hi...i was just wondering why a brave Mephi needs +40MP stoning since it already has 2560MP at level 60. Since a +4 skill requires only 1200MP it can cast +4skill 2 times without the boost right? Please correct me if i am wrong as i am just trying to clarify here since i am about to stone my brave mephi...thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Because u would most likely want to keep WIS +20% on her, which is another 200 MP

  18. Hello!
    I'm a little anxious about using my skill stones. I have Inferno, Night, and two Rend.
    My best guardians right now are:
    Pow Domi, Int Vamp Mat, Fast Bahamut, and Pow Jug. (5˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜˜*) all lvl 60

    any suggestions?

    Vamp Mat has both energy and life drain.
    Domi has buffs and vanish.

    1. Try getting rid of the drains from vamp matron first.

  19. Hi Windy, I have an int Dominion and I have no +4 element skill stone. should I chose att+20% or Light+3 until I get another +4 element? and should I add 50 mana to it?(so it can cast 2 +4 magic)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. it should have a vanish already so no hurry doing dual elemental if u dont have the stone ready. Casting +4 twice is very advantagious in Coli. And I'd prefer att+20% over Light +3 so his (her? lol) normal attacks will be a bit stronger.

      Delete
  20. If i can only choose ifrit or titan, which one should I get?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It really depend on the types

      Delete
    2. i got ace ifrit but thinking of getting a titan....do you think it is worth getting titan presume also an ace?

      Delete
    3. Ace Ifrit and Titan both have relatively lower market value comparing to other Aces. Personally I may choose Titan over Ifrit.

      Delete
  21. i got a Sexy Dominion. which skills should i keep? according to the above guide, the Sexy type can cast Light+4 twice. and the skills to keep are ATK+20%, DEF+20%, Light+4.

    but since can cast Light+2 twice, and most of the time the card doesn't stay alive to cast/attack for the 3rd time, is it really need to keep the ATK+20%?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Out of the existing skill list, I'd suggest to keep ATK buff, since it may survive to use normal atk against weaker opponents.

      The best build for Sexy Domi (I believe) is actually keeping ATK and DEF buffs, and replace Light+4 with a Physical+4 skill, since Sexy Domi's ATK>WIS with the ATK buff.

      Delete
    2. really thanks Windy for the answer. it clears my doubt. thanks again.

  22. Hi, awesome website. Just started GC and I hunted an ACE Mephi. You said to use skill 1, 2, 5 which I will do, but do I need to buff him with any stones to make him even better? Thanks

    1. Stats stoning is always good, especially if you're fightning in high rank coli. For Ace Meph, probably wis and agi are priority, followed by hp and def.

  24. Hi Windy, I have an Intel Dom Lvl 60 with 2580MP, skill G.Heal, G.Protect & Vanish. I was thinking to replace G.Heal with another elemental +4, but was wondering if it's MP would be enough for it to cast +4 twice. Pls advise, thanks!

    1. I was thinking to put in wind +4

      Delete
    2. Whether with dual casting or not, 2580MP is not enough for domi to cast +4 twice with G Pro. You need 2600MP to cast twice. Just add some coli MP stones.

  25. Hi Windy, i caught a cool juggernaut but was thinking whether to have def up or - def skill when it reaches 50. What also hinders me is its hp. Its low. any opinions?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, Jugg's HP is extremely low. That's why my suggested skill build doesn't include DEF buff, since he will very likley die in one-shot even with the DEF buff. Keeping the other 2 buff/debuffs ensure a better chance of one-shotting your opponent.
