Basch fon Ronsenburg


A traitor to Dalmasca…

Age: 36 years
Race: Hume

A general of the kingdom of Dalmasca. He was once a hero who won numerous fights, and known as a brave general. Basch frowns upon injustice, and is highly admired by young people. Especially since, unlike other generals of the nobility, he was a commoner.

However, at the signing of the ceremony, he seemed to have killed King Raminas and was tried for his murder.

It makes you wonder if he was ever loyal to the king…

Gameplay Characteristics

Among all characters, Basch has the highest HP, and as such needs the same armor. He and Vaan have the highest strength of all the classes.

He can be used as a bodyguard or a tank, since he was a knight and protected the Princess.

Basch should take a shield role or a decoy role using reverse or decoy.

Don’t use Basch for magick-based jobs, however, since his MP, Vitality, and Speed are low compared to the other characters.

Recommended Jobs

* Note: We recommend that you assign Basch in these jobs because they are easy to use and will maximize his effectiveness. However, Basch can use other jobs. Please see each job for details.
  • Monk
    is best used to deal physical attacks, which use up no MP. Amongst the other classes, the monk is easy to handle. In fact, Monks with a few weak points are still effective.Shikari
    Basch doesn’t use magic at all until the end of Shikari. Also, this class is good because it uses a lot of strength. Growing strength is difficult with license.Support Skills aren’t bad and should be honed because you can allow him to master knowledge of medicine until the end.
  • We don’t recommend Magick Jobs for Basch, since any other character uses magick better than Basch. It’s unnecessary to use him for Magick Jobs.
