IV Checker (All Heroes / All Rarities)

+Def/-Spd

The best IVs for Gwendolyn are +Def and -Spd. A higher Def stat will allow her to fulfill her role as a physical tank more effectively. Her Spd is pretty low and it is safe for Gwendolyn to take as a dump stat.

Gwendolyn Best Weapon Refine

Effect of Gwendolyn's Refined Weapon

Exclusive Weapon Effect from Refining (Special Effect Type)
SP: 400
Might: 16 Range: 1 HP: +3
Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1).
At start of combat, if unit's HP ≥ 50%, grants Def/Res+4 and Special cooldown charge +1 per foe's attack during combat. (Only highest value applied. Does not stack. Special cooldown charge granted even if foe's attack deals 0 damage.)
Arena Medal:500 Divine Dew:200

We recommend the Special Effect Refine for Weighted Lance

Gwendolyn's defensive native special, Escutcheon, only has a cooldown count of 2. This means that she can almost always trigger it thanks to Weighted Lance. With a healer, she can easily maintain the HP ≥ 50% requirement for the +4 Def/Res that adds to her already amazing bulk. Offensive Gwendolyns who heavily rely on Bonfire or Ignis to deal damage will greatly benefit from it as well. Therefore, we recommend the special effect refine for Weighted Lance.

Gwendolyn is a close physical attacker (range = 1). Therefore, when not accounting for the Weapon Triangle, the amount of damage she deals will be equivalent to her Atk minus the foe's Def stat.

Gwendolyn Strengths

Great at Tanking

Gwendolyn's Def is very high, and her Res is also pretty goodl! She can tank many of the units in the game.

Can Put Enemies in Compromising Positions

With Drag Back, Gwendolyn is able to pull enemy units into the spot where Gwendolyn was originally in while she moves a space back. Being on the frontline, she is able to pull in units into the range of her high-powered but frail allies like Reinhardt.

Gwendolyn Weaknesses

Susceptible to Follow-up Attacks

Gwendolyn's low Spd makes her very susceptible to follow-up attacks. Watch out for fast green units that can deal massive damage to her! Make sure to pair her up with strong red units that can deal with fast green units.

Low Offensive Power

Gwendolyn's high bulk comes with a price. Her offensive power is not very high. We recommend inheriting special skills like Bonfire and Ignis to utilize her high defenses into her offense.

Inheriting Hone Armor

Gwendolyn can be used to inherit the skill Hone Armor. Gwendolyn is unique in the sense that she is a common hero that possesses this rare skill. Even if you don't want to train and build around Gwendolyn, it would be smart if you kept her as a Combat Manual.

I refuse to lose!
A knight must never fall!
With all my might!
And now, my turn!

Quotes: Castle

See Castle Quotes
This castle has been built with excellent defense in mind. It will rebuff foes more easily. Admirable.
Where I’m from, women are rarely the kind of knights who wear heavy armor. But I want to be like my dear brother.
I admire how seriously you take these patrols of yours. I’d accompany you, but I fear that I’d slow you down.
Between you and me, this armor is simply murder on my back!
Wearing heavy armor like this takes daily practice. It’s harder than you think, just walking around.

Lv 40 Dialogue

See Lv 40 Dialogue
I’ve got to say that I appreciate all of your guidance in battle.
But sometimes I worry that you try to protect me too much out there.
Am I failing to do my part as a knight, protecting others, if you’re always worried about my safety?
Maybe you think that I draw too much attention to myself by wearing such colorful armor.
But that’s exactly why I do wear this—to draw foes to me and away from others!
I know that we need to act as a team out there, but my role really is to put myself in harm’s way!
Still, thank you. I’ll always have the courage to protect everyone, knowing that you’re looking out for me.
