    Can someone please help me setup a good GR setup please? I'm getting wrecked by both guardians and bosses. Here are my units:

    Assume all units have their SP filled to max, just not in use. I collected units for a while on hiatus from the game, but didn't do much other than farm for sp fodder.

    WATER GR SQUAD
    :water:Galea (Lead) + :water:Ilm, :water:Vikki, :water:Holia, :water:Melord (or Camilla/Stein)
    - SP Galea for sparks fill BB gauge. If using Melord, must alternate BB and SBB (as you want both the BB fill when squad is damaged and crit buffs)
    - use Holia for 80% angel idol UBB safety net

    LIGHT GR SQUAD (note, this clashes with the mixed element build - can't use both)
    :light:Regil (Lead) + :light:Jack-O', :light:Carrol, :light:Lauda, :light:Gabriela
    - SP Regil for light atk/def, SP Jack-O' for two turn mitigation, SP Carrol or Gabriela for heal over time.
    - can't really fit crit in this build unfortunately - would be good to get Enile in for crit and rez but I can't see a way - could take Sirius instead of Carrol/Lauda but that leaves you without ailment cleanse/removal, so that doesn't work
    - use Gabriela for angel idol safety net instead of Holia

    MIXED ELEMENT GR SQUAD (note, this clashes with the light build)
    :light:Regil (Lead) + :fire:Rain, :light:Gabriela, :thunder:Cleria, (and maybe a crit buffer in last slot?)
    - SP Rain for mitigation two turn duration

    It is also possible for you to consider a dark build with Keres or Neferet lead, then Zalvard as your 80% angel idol UBB, but I don't see an obvious dark unit here for BB fill when squad is damaged (which I'd argue a GR squad really needs since BB gauge drain is a thing). Consequently you may wish to consider a third mixed element squad like

    MIXED ELEMENT GR SQUAD (backup)
    :fire:Azurai (Lead) + :dark:Lancelot, :dark:Neferet, :dark:Zalvard, (and some BB fill when squad is dmg unit like Zelnite, Felice, whoever really)

    Or you could try a Keres/Neferet build without BB fill when squad is damaged, but I've tried that and it wasn't very fun.

    Thanks for your help! I copied your first one for my water squad, I'm going with Melord as I have him w/ full SP and the mixed element GR squad.

    I'm using Regil, Gabriela, Rain, Shion, and Cleria in my first squad.
