Barbarian of Frozen Lands

Class Warrior
Role Tank/Sub DPS/CC/Cleanser/buffer
ATK Type Physical
Position Front
Grade ★★

A barbarian that rules the snowy plains of the frozen land, he undermines the morale of enemies with ear-deafening shout and charges into them like a storm.


Gau is an indispensable hero for Dragon Raids. Very few heroes can match his CC, And he is very versatile due to his flexible synergy. In addition to being S-ranked in Raids, Fortress WB, & Regular WB he also is A-ranked in PvP which makes him one of the top warriors. Gau also has a very low need for his UW so he is easier and cheaper to build.

Pros and Cons[edit]

+ CC
+ Party Cleanse with ATK Buff
+ Self immunity
+ Can gather enemies together
+ Excels in Dragon Raids
- Not very Tanky
- Low Damage


Stat Priority[edit]

  • ATK
  • Crit
  • Crit DMG
  • Lifesteal
  • HP
  • (optional substats are: ATK Spd - P.DEF - M.DEF and CC Resist)

Gear Priority[edit]

For a DPS/Sub DPSing Gau you will want to use all 4 Pieces of Fire Dragon Gear to maximize his Crit output, BUT if you are utilizing him as a Tank you will want to use full Ice Dragon gear to increase his beefiness. If your Gau is having issues in full Fire set you can do 2 ice/2 fire to help keep him up longer.

Recommended Artifacts[edit]

  • Pocket Watch of Ancient Civilization - Every 10 sec. reduce all Cooldowns by 1 sec and increase ATK Spd by 80 for every 5 sec.

Note: this is very useful because it allows Gau to spam his S3 more frequently.


  • Golden Apple of a Goddess - When the hero's health falls bellow 25% he recovers 30% of Max HP and dispels all debuffs (activation is limited to 1 time per battle and is only used if Gau is your tank).


  • Primer for the Heroes - When HP falls below 20%, ATK rises by 30% while Speed and all DMG Reduction is increased by 300.

Recommended Runes[edit]

  • UW - you will want 2 ATK runes and 1 Lifesteal rune - Non UW Lifesteal only.
  • Main Armor - Crit DMG for DPSing - Hp for Tanking.
  • Secondary Armor - Crit for DPS - Mana Recovery/DMG for Tank.


  • His S3 is capable of bringing down the high level and hard mode dragon by itself.

Recommended Transcendence Perks[edit]

  • T1 ATK Up
  • T2 Opportune Strike for DPSing or Tactical Foresight for any stage or raid that needs more magical defenses.
  • T3 Battle Roar Light (Hands Down!).
  • T4 Vortex Light is highly recommended BUT Vortex Dark is good for manual users that may use that skill for large incoming DMG.
  • T5 Gau Dark (especially if you are using his UW and certain UTs were he looses some HP), You will also want to get his T5 Light, to add overall increased performance even at the cost of losing his T2 skill temporarily until you can use 3 plus 5 Transcendence points to relearn his T2 perk.

Team Synergy[edit]

  • Gau is probably THE MOST versatile warrior in King's Raid therefore he can be used in any team makeup you might throw him into BUT if you want a little extra out of him, try for a team that provides him extra synergy. So, after all the researching I have done, the team I have found that provides him the best synergy is: Phillop (tank), Gau (sub dps and cc), Maria (Main Dps and CC), and Kaulah (heals), UNLESS you have May (upgraded version) then use May.
  • If Gau is your tank then your synergy team would be: Arch (Archer Dps), Aisha (Mage Dps), Laias (heals).

  • Soul Weapon Story: Numinu is the weapon that only the strongest Barbarian warrior may carry. However, its current master, Gau, did not dare to use the weapon. For he knew that Numinu was the sacred relic of the Barbarian Tribe to slay darkness, and as someone who had abandoned his kingdom and his people, he believed that he was not worthy of holding it. All he could do was to repent for his past sins silently by help rebuilding the kingdom. But it did not take long until his endless devotion toward his people saw the light. The Barbarians started praising Gau's display of diligence and truthfulness, and one by one, the Barbarians recognized him as their leader Numinu, who was watching over Gau ever since the beginning, launched itself far upwards the sky and incarnated before Gau. It was the day Gau became the true king of the Barbarians.

Hero's Backstory

Gau is a powerful warrior from the Barbarian kingdom. Whenever he swung his twin axes, a bloodbath would follow. As a warrior, he was feared for his peerless ferocity. However, he suddenly disappeared for 10 years. When he returned, he was a completely changed man. His violent barbarian tendencies were all gone, even when others criticized him. Instead, he now faces them with smiles and jolly laughter. The kind, warm gaze he now shows to children and animals is especially surprising.
