The Vanguard is kind of like the counterpart to the Lodestar. Obtain this class through the DLC map Vanguard Dawn . Strong and sturdy but somewhat slow, the Vanguard has Heavy Blade to further show its preferences. Veteran Intuition allows your unit to be somewhat guarded from enemy critical hits, although you should never rely on it entirely. Aether, shared between this class and the Great Lord class, is really great, allowing you to do two hits within one hit. The first has a Sol effect, the second has a Luna effect. Strengthtaker is Strengthtaker.
