Gabriel is the first 6 star character that has Revive on both his Rush and Active skill. As a more defensive melee leader, combined with his ability to recover from all penalties, Gabriel is poised to be huge threat in many team compositions:
Gabriel’s 66 AP Rush is a simple yet quick Rush that can really sustain a team over a long period of time. His Rush not only comes with Revive, but also provides +15% HP for 3 turns, as well as recovering from all penalties. Due to his faster Rush speed, this allows Gabriel to keep tabs on his teammates and abolish any negative effects that are otherwise devastating for more defense teams (such as Healing Reduction).
Having Revive be a part of an Active Skill can be very handy in certain situations, as it can allow Gabriel to Revive a teammate independent of being impaired or prevented from using his Rush in some way. Additionally though, his Active provides +20% AP to 2 teammates, which really expands this skill to be more flexible during combat. Even if a teammate isn’t ready to be Revived, you can still use Gabriel’s active to give that extra AP needed to trigger Rushes for your teammates.
A melee leader skill that provides +40% HP and DEF is a great leader skill for defense teams or for teams that need more defensive coverage. A simple yet effective leader skill for melee teams.
Gabriel comes with a unique effect on his weapon that provides a chance for Gabriel to heal up to 3 of his teammates for 25% HP when being attacked. This makes it so that Gabriel becomes increasingly more scary to attack directly as the battle drags out (since it’s likely that other characters will also have taken damage). Alternatively, if you want to use Gabriel more proactively, you can re-craft for “Stun for when attacking” to have a chance to control the enemy team more directly.
[6 Star] Synergistic Characters
Fast Jesus – As strong as Gabriel’s kit is, having a teammate that cover fire for Gabriel really enhances and synergizes with the benefits that Gabriel provides. Jesus (or a melee Human Shield) is a strong choice in being able to provide that defense for Gabriel, and at the same time, Gabriel can heal, recover, and Revive the tank-style character to keep consistent coverage for the team.
Strong Violet – Having a strong Revive loop can be a powerful strategy for teams, and adding Violet into the mix is no exception. Additionally, Violet’s Revive is on the Active Skill as well, making Gabriel + Violet a hard Revive loop to fight against, since effects such as Impair have less impact against them. Plus, since Gabriel can recover from all penalties, traditional methods using control effects to challenge the Revive loop will prove to be less effective.
Fast Ezekiel – Having a Guardian II on your team can be incredibly helpful to mitigate damage, which is especially true for Gabriel, since he’s likely going to be a high priority target for the enemy. Since Ezekiel is a Fast character with Guardian II, he can greatly benefit from Gabriel’s leader skill while also providing some protection. Fast Glenn would be an alternative option, but Glenn’s heal over time (HoT) is stronger than Gabriel’s HoT, which overrides Gabriel’s HoT on characters (and making it less useful). Ezekiel on the other hand provides ATK and DEF boosts with his Rush, which overlaps nicely with Gabriel’s own Rush.
