The newest addition to the Granblue Fantasy: Versus roster arrives today. Unlike Yuel, Anre prefers to take on his opponents in a more conventional style. As a spearman, Anre tends to err on the defensive, but that doesn’t mean he can’t quickly put his opponents on their back foot.
The Eternals founder has two powerful defensive skills: Fleeting Spark and Arm the Bastion. Fleeting Spark is a counterattack that shifts Anre from a defensive stance to an offensive one, allowing him to immediately move into offensive skills like Rakshasa (long range), Mantra Wheel (mid-range rushdown attack) or Spiral Spear (close reange).
Arm the Bastion, on the other hand, is Anre’s Unique Action. It has a slow wind-up, but it allows him to immediately move into the next action upon successfully parrying an opponent’s attack. If a player learns how to successfully both the offensive and defensive skills, they’ll have a character on their hands that can easily bait and punish their opponents. Those interested in all the technical details should definitely make sure to check out the patch notes.
