Seriously tho... I mean Galleon defense is off the chart.
In the Sindar ruins of the Twilight forest, due to me being unlucky all my characters including the Hero and richards got a bad status effect and got killed.
Only one man standing... Galleon, the boss was hitting at most for 5 to 10 hp at max... he stood there and took it like a soldier and killed the boss by himself.
Next , I went to Big Hole part 2, to get eresh, at the bottom a boss the shade from my understanding was pretty tought, I put my good ol' Galleon in front, The boss was doing some kind of a super multiple attack on him 6 or 7 attacks non stop but 25 hp for each !!!! Galleon tanked from the beginning to the end and none of the other got hurt...and didn;t even need to heal him since Galleon had like 540 hp.
I use a formation where Galleon is in front and get bonuses to defense and people on the rear lines get magic power bonuses...
So richards is the best fighter? I beg to differ, Galleon is the master and his magic defense is pretty high as well.
And yeah, for people wondering, I didn't even increased Galleon defense skills something that I will do soon to see if Galleon cannot get hurt.
