Best OG Crew Party Setup in Granblue Fantasy: Relink

If you prefer to stick to the original crew members, the best party you can compose in Granblue Fantasy: Relink is Io as a Caster/Healer, Rackham as a Ranged DPS, Katalina as a Tank, and Captain as a Melee DPS. Here is a breakdown of each of those characters and their role:

  • Rackham is a fire-element, gun-wielding human. He’s a competent damage dealer who never loses mobility. Spend most of your Mastery Points in the Attack category to turn him into a deadly Ranged DPS.
  • Katalina is a water-element human whose weapon of choice is a saber. While she can deal some damage, her abilities are more suited for soaking up damage as a tank. This means most Mastery Points should go in the Defense category.
  • Io is your electric-type healer. She is technically an elemental magic caster, which means she can cast ice, fire, and electric spells and massively heal every party member.
  • Captain. This is you! Though you can build your character however you want, to balance out this party setup, distribute more Mastery Points into Attack than Defense.

If you’re OK with assembling a team that includes recruited crewmates, this is the best party setup for you in Granblue Fantasy: Relink. Here is a breakdown of each of those characters and their role:

  • Seigfried embodies a dragon’s power and stands tall as a tank. He can deliver powerful blows with his greatsword while maintaining resilience with self and party-wide buffs. 
  • Narmaya is an elegant blade master who can take on the role of ranged DPS. Her playstyle involves switching between two distinctive stances catering to wide-reaching attacks and precise single-target focus. 
  • Ferry is a summoner with ghostly companions. She can seamlessly transition between ranged and melee DPS, which makes her ideal as an off-DPS.
  • Cagliostro is the alchemical caster and one of the best healers in Granblue Fantasy: Relink. She can provide invaluable support and adapt combo finishers for different effects, so she’s not just sitting on the sidelines spitting potions.

Completing quests, such as Folca side quests, can boost your progress in the game and help you level up faster. Don’t skip them.
