    If you are using him as a bomber – Blade Disciple is probably better than the 5% critrate

  2. Ray

    Was he worth it, Heck yeah….
    Arena alone makes him worth it.
    then I use him on the doom tower floors, Drastically reduces my time
    Faction wars, Pfft. those last few floors were a breeze.
    I use him all over when I need to get rid of a lot of HP fast
    I have him with Krisk, Brogni, inquisitor, Geomancer and Ukko for Hydra
    yeah, He was worth it

  3. 7 of 9

    Arena 4*?

    A single 40k Gaius the Gleeful wipes my Arena team, 300k, on the opening round.

  4. WH

    clearly a magic champ not a force one, needs updating

  5. sin

    I think eagle eye is better in arena than helm smasher. while his damage is ok, you want those bombs to land.

  6. Charlie

    5 on arena offense and 5 on arena defense in my opinion.

    Places a bomb and detonates a bomb when attacked.

    Gaius is S tier in arena except for maybe platinum…. which there aren’t many spots for.

  7. Bart

    Gaius is Magic not Force affinity.

  8. MrMe

    Gaius is Magic not Force affinity.

  9. jonathon mccue

    a3 ignore unkillable and detonates all bombs! extra turn a11 C’MON

  10. jonathon mccue

    This ranking need adjusting, hits pretty hard with those bombs! I’d say 3 starts across the board. Mad bomber? 25% attack aura. With 100% sleep and bombs when booked

  11. Magnus Lame-n

    I could do 6 secs with a rare so… 1 star in campaign seems right. Pretty great with arena nuking

  12. GalenMagnus

    Again, please explain how a champion who can reliably solo Brutal campaign 12-3 in 14 seconds only gets a 1 star rating in campaign. There is absolutely zero logic to this or several other of this champion’s 1 star ratings.

  13. Tilt777

    He’s my main nuker in arena.

    He’s also my campaign farmer, I’m still fairly new. 12-13 seconds. I set his a1 to be the only skill used in second round.

    He’s a bit squishy in doom tower, but hes part of my main team and we get usually halfway up hard.

  14. Arioch

    Ayumi is not off, he is a fun champ to play in arena against certain comps. he is tier C for me. I see a team with this dude in Arena, and throw my Raglin in the team and he is totally neutralized. A high resist arena team with Raglin over 500 resistance makes this champ look like a bumbling comedian not a joker.

  15. Barry_Bates

    @Bill In not sure he’s playing the game as much anymore and because of that he is incorrectly rating all the newer champions. This site is still a good resource for older champions and content, but I would look elsewhere for anything new in the game.

  16. UnFuzzyLogic

    Hell Hades rates this champion much higher!

  17. Bill

    Haha, cmon now even if he is ONLY good in Arena, he still should be a B rank easily. You can use him in other content, just not necessary end game, so there should be plenty more champs in F grade then as many legos suck worse then this guy! Please correct or provide some evidence why he should be ranked all alone in the F rank!?!?

  18. Wolf887

    Just finished Nightmare Campaign with Arbiter and Gaius.

    With just over 230 Speed, if you buff ATK with Arby, start with Gaius A1, then place weaken with Arby and then use Gaius A2 to place the bombs and the sleep, the takes the bombs and the wave loses a turn. Just A1/A3 with Gaius and A1 with Arbiter to reset the buff and the bombs for the next wave. When enemies want to take the second turn, they die. Even against force champs, chances are, at least 1 bomb will get placed. By using weaken from Arbiter’s A1, even the damage of 1 bomb will kill the mob.

    Repeat until Nightmare campaign is over.

    It’s unreal to see such bad ratings on a champ that is is S Tier in Arena. I’m fairly new (~8-9 months in) and for weeks now, I finish the rank week just a few hundred points below Plat with this champ&warmother combo. Literally nobody survives 2x48k damage from the bombs, not counting Warmother’s nuke.

    You can even run him with warmother and kymar similar to seer, to blow up waves in dungeons/DT in seconds. He’s even great against bosses. Do note that both this champ as well as warmother can detonate the bombs. Meaning that the boss does not need to take turns to receive the damage. This is how I easily cheesed Bommal 90 on Normal, killing him before his bombs went off, while not having the OP top tier support champs people usually use in Bommal teams. Without this champ, my DT run would’ve ended at stage 90, with him, I managed to complete this rotation (considered by many the hardest).

    It’s crazy that when the damage on a boss comes from an HP burn or poison, that’s a top tier dungeon strategy but when the same damage (or even higher) comes from bombs, the bomb champs are trash.

    I can’t see how such a versatile champ that is also top of the line in some areas can be the only F tier in the game while champs with literally no use like Nobel or Opardin are higher in your ranking.

  19. SecretFromWithin

    Do not listen to the ratings on here. While I do appreciate the content on here, I will no longer be using @ayumilove anymore. Gauis is way off in ratings here. Enough to convince me that @ayumilove does not play this game anymore. This has been happening a lot lately and there are more accurate ratings elsewhere. Gaius should definitely be 5* for arena. I’m in Gold V and occasionally in platinum and Gaius replaced my Ithos in my speed team. He slaughters go second teams. @ayumilove what’s going on with you? You need to reinvestigate several Champs

  20. Chala Man

    Gaius es muy bueno, lo tengo en Arena y a destronado a mi anterior Nuker, sin subir maestrias ni nada, creo q la clasificacion que le dan es de no haberlo probado ni un poco…

  21. mugengsr

    This is at least an A tier champion. He is on my main Arean team, and I am on the cusp of Platinum. There are also many YT videos that you should link on here as well. Need to fix this ranking as many people follow your website.

  22. LinePK

    One of the best fusions imo, he is great almost everywhere, i use him with Relentless set and helped me a lot in many areas, mainly in the floors of Doom Tower and waves on dungeons 25, he is also top tier in arena, campaign farms and faction wars. I’m already working on my second Gaius.

  23. Looool

    He doesn’t seem to want to work anymore.
    just quit

  24. Minowara

    Did this site get hacked? Why in the world would Gaius be ranked as the worst legendary in the game? Jingwon is better? Hahahahahaha. This must be a hack.

  25. Ulti

    F rank when this champ is used by high endgame player for plat rush in arena ?
    This website was really usefull when I started but it become less and less relevant. Sad.

  26. GalenMagnus

    There are no words to describe how many things are wrong with this ranking. I can only conclude that you have not actually used this champion, Ayumi.

    1* in campaign? Seriously? I do not have top tier gear on him (2 Cruel Sets, 1 Perception…32k HP, 5900 ATK, 224 speed, and only 15% crit rate and 80% crit damage, and 256 ACC), and he consistently soloes 12-3 hard in 14 seconds. He also more than holds his own in the dungeons and potion keeps. Haven’t tried him in doom tower yet, but I imagine pairing him with War Mother would make for some downright hilarious runs.

    I can understand tentative 1 star rankings for not having tried him yet…but creating a new F tier just for him when he is clearly so much better than that? Man, epic fail.

  27. Jon Snow

    Gaius F tier? Yet again Ayumilove shows that the ratings are made by people that never played the game.

    Nearly 1.6k atk and strong multipliers puts him on par with most of the great nukers in this game amd just below the top tier ones (Leo, Candy, Trunda).

    Even if you ignore bombs completely, he smacks harder than most nukers people use up until Plat, while having a reset on A1and ignore unk on A3

    But why ignore bombs? They are meta in Arena and Gaous is the best bomber in the game. Content creators already showed tons of builds and strats that makes him Plat-viable.

    Low tier arena? 6k atk with Atk up (which you would always use anyway) deals 40k damage per bomb, fully ignoring any defense. 6k atk is easy to get by anyone given the high base stat. Needless to say that in lower arena nobody has 80k health and of they do, they don’t have anything else.

    Outside arena, Gaius trashes wave content, can be used in nearly all dungeons and keeps and is a total beast in FW and DT.

    Real rank? Easy A tier legendary.

  28. Joe M.

    @Brad, to invoke other posters, what’s the name of your Raid website again? Maybe try some constructive criticism next time? Thank you for posting, Ayumi, as always.

  29. Brad

    What a shit review lol.

  30. xwings

    You can build him 700 acc 7K atk and then with a yoshi you can land bomb on every team even with a mitrhala

  31. Joe M.

    KirbyMorph, thank you both for using him and then explaining his potential. I’m gonna pass this on to my guild mates. Cheers, and we love you, Ayumi! 🙂

  32. KirbyMorph

    Pretty crazy hero if you ask me. Put him in stone skin and you can beat most anyone in arena. Demolishes waves in doom tower with yoshi combo. Try something like perception x 2, stoneskin x 4 and shoot for 6k+ attack, 450 acc, 220+ spd. Yoshi can push to 700+ acc and gives atk buff. Even the crazy res teams in gold v/some plat can land bombs on. Of note, if you die and they die from bombs triggered on his death, you are awarded the win. No ties or ‘you died first you lose’. Can put him solo/duo defense to scam people very easily going for those “easy” solo defense wins not expecting to get bombed from stoneskin.

    With a perception x 4, cruel x 2 build, you can push 7k+ atk, 450+ accuracy, 220+ spd quite easily. If you struggle with doom tower hard waves, just melt them with this and yoshi to get to through the floors before bosses. Try something like shazar/lyssandra/yoshi/gaius and whoever for 5th.

    Underrated champ.

  33. Azlar Grimm

    Yikes! Is there a worse legendary? Now I see why they are selling his fragments for $19.99 for 10.

  34. Jason

    I completely disagree with most of what you have him rated, he is not end game by any means but he is definitely WAAAAAAAY better than you have him. do you even play?

  35. halfninja

    Gaius is incorrectly listed as a Force affinity champ, he is Magic affinity. Thank you for a great website!
