[+] High Attack and Def (thanks to Atk and Def +20% abilities)
[+] Can become a tanker, because he has Draw Attacks ability
[+] Also learn bladeblitz which is very useful to damage a lot of enemies at once.
[+] Has power break which is nice (unless you get full break)
[+] Able to inflict paralyze to enemy (Blade bash)
[-] Doesn’t have counter (like amarant’s eye for an eye)/massive defense boost abilities (Wol sentinel’s ability)
[-] Kinda useless when protecting allies from all targets attack.
[-] only 3 abilities slots (most of characters have 4 slots at 5 stars)
 Increase his defense if you want to make him a tanker, auto regen is also nice
 Equip his abilities slot with def+10% if you don’t have better abilities (barrage, etc)
 Equip him with counter ability if you have it (Thanks to Gumi for giving you 21 Sabin 🙂 ).
Recommended Esper (Focus on attack):
 Ifrit/Golem, if he’s your most powerful attacker. Other than that Golem is better choice, because provoke (learned from Golem) will make sure the enemy attack you instead of other characters.
He’s nice attacker and tanker (thanks to high status). Even if you get better tanker (Wol, Amarant), he’s still useful because he can inflict paralyze and bladeblitz skill.
