In FE8 you can get higher amount of GK (max. 6) than any other class. When I beat this game first time(that was my first Fire Emblem game in life) I thought they is much better than Paladins, but I was wrong. For only NC, they are much worser and only who should really be in this class is Gilliam ( and maybe Kyle). Why?
- 6 MOV and almost worst movement type
- Better caps isn't very helpful in that easy game( but GK in FE7 would be almost perfect replacing Generals)
But, for CC they are better, since they will be stronger than Gerik, Cormag, Seth and many other(only Generals, Warriors and Berserks has higher STR cap), but they don't ORKO Cyclops ( to do this you need 30 STR and Devil Axe or just magic). They are good for other tank-like units, but they have only 6 movement, so you just pick another stronger unit for job like that.
Paladins in CC also isn't really good. They has the same STR like Erika and Sniper!Nemi, so not good. They movement isn't really helpful since you have Cormag, Tana, both Ranger, both Lords, Valkyries...
So finally I think:
For NC: Paladin>>>GK
For CC: GK<<Paladins
Agreed or not?
