“Yes, of course, Commander Paulus! The main forces of my 8th Legion have arrived. Let us commence the attack!”
It is easy to see why Rist was jealous of Baldack, as Baldack is superior to him in every way. Baldack is surprisingly difficult for a midboss, with reasonable stats all around. His speed is mediocre, but his evasion is nevertheless decent, due to his and Paulus' leadership as well as his luck stat. Baldack also has 7 move and a movement star , making him notably more mobile than a standard Generals. His array of weapons allows him to be a threat both up close and afar, and units with low defense must absolutely fear his Master Lance.
It is generally advised to kill Baldack as quickly as possible, to lessen the enemy's overall leadership. Baldack is extremely vulnerable to magic, especially mages that are capable of doubling him, but players should take into account the dangerous power of his Master Lance all the same.
