Garwood Guide

Garwood is a strong infantry hero, but he is not for all players. The reason why he is rated as B-tier is that he is only used for PVE and tanking Behemoth. When it comes to PVP he does not perform that great and for most players, especially free-to-play players, is simply a waste of tokens. There are better infantry heroes that are in the game and that will come that you can use for PVP. So if you are a free-to-play player, avoid him and if you are pay to win, get him to help your alliance with PVE content.

Garwood Pairings


Madeline is the best pairing for Garwood. Together, they are the tankiest pairing in the game. They have so much survivability and damage reduction that they are taking barely any damage. This pairing is best to use for PVE content where you need to tank damage. Also, make sure that you are using the Madeline talent tree


Eliana is a great hero to pair with Garwood if you do not have Madeline available. Garwood and Eliana have a lot of durability, so you can use this pairing for tanking PVE content. It will not deal a lot of damage. Feel free to use Eliana’s talent tree if you have her at a higher level than Garwood.
