During Combat Basch prefers to stay close to his allies, protecting them with his Defend Ally ability, and preventing enemies from flanking. If Basch is surrounded or seriously hurt, he will go into his Defensive Stance to prevent as much damage as possible. Basche will also Call Out enemies, either attempting to force them into a duel, or frighten them with his Daunting Challenge to control the battlefield that much more. Basch will only retreat if he knows his allies will escape as well and will do anything in his power to ensure they can, even sacrificing himself.
