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

Ashnard Strengths

Strong penalty through Gurgurant

Gurgurant has the effect of inflicting -5 Atk/Def on foes within 2 spaces after combat. This allows Ashnard to become both a powerful attacker, and a good supporting unit as it can boost your allies damage too!

Gurgurant neutralizes effects against flying units

Gurgurant neutralizes skills that make attacks effective on fliers. On top of that, Ashnard also has Distant Def 3, so the damage of bow attacks are reduced even further. Combined with his naturally high Def and Res stats, he can be pretty good at tanking ranged attacks, especially from physical attackers. For all-flying teams, he can even fill out a very niche role in that he can tank and take out bow units for your team similar to Young Minerva and Michalis.

Ashnard's Weaknesses

Low Spd

Ashnard is susceptible to follow-up attacks as he has low Spd. Be careful when dealing with dragon units as Distant Def cannot reduce damage from this type of foe, so a speedy dragon can take him out pretty easily.

Value of Skills ★★★★☆

Inherting Distant Def 3

Ashnard can be used to inherit the skill Distant Def 3. However, Ashnard is a powerful unit that is distributed in Grand Hero Battles. This means that the number of Ashnards you can get is limited. Think carefully before fodderring him off.
