Best Techniques for Guts

Right! It’s time to discuss the best techniques for The Black Swordsman. I suggest equipping Guts with the Shinigami technique, as it gives his Crit Hit chance a decent boost and increases his overall DMG. It also accounts for the cooldown/range nerfs that some of the upgrades bring, with a +10% range buff and -15% cooldown application!

Upgrading Guts (The Black Swordsman)

The Golden Age Arc begins! It’s time for Guts to get stronger with a multitude of upgrades. The later upgrades switch up his tactics a little, with certain stats increasing and abilities being unlocked. This is all at the cost of other stats being decreased, so it’s best to plan ahead.
