Hello everyone and welcome to my 74th analysis, this time featuring Gregorz of Lyria.
Gregorz's Possession immunity makes him a good choice vs. Magic monsters and Baba Yaga. In addition to being fast for an Earth monster, Gregorz has a move that grants him Stun immunity, which renders the main form of denying of his element useless- this also includes Mega Stun since "artificial" immunity to Stun blocks that as well. He also has access to high amounts of damage, be it AOE or single target. However, Gregorz can't be very fast and very strong at the same time, plus being fast won't do him any good and he lacks deny moves.
Runes: 2 Speed 1 Strength
Silver Sword deals massive, unresisted damage, in addition to applying Bleed+Quicksand with only 1 CD! Cleaning Potion removes all debuffs on him but more importantly it gives him an immunity to Stun that also works vs. Mega Stun. Bear Rage is unresisted, 40 Base Power AOE Bleed whereas Ground Breaker has the golden 45 Base Power and applies Quicksand to all enemies. 2 Speed 1 Strength is used to be faster than most Earth monsters in order to use Cleansing Potion, plus only 1 Strength is necessary since he has a lot of Quicksand, the highest damaging status in the game.
Teammates: Any monster who can give an ally Freeze immunity will make denying him impossible without CDs Activated or Stamina Drain.
Countering Gregorz of Lyria: You can Stun Gregorz before he uses his Cleansing Potion. General Atum and Brontes are not faster Base Speed-wise, but most people will not run Gregorz with 3 Speed, so you can Stun him. Even though he is immune to Possession, monsters who have Glitched or Hacked go through this immunity. Ouros is not recommended against Gregorz since he has a lot of Bleed and Qucksand moves, which will whittle him down very fast.
