Well, who knows what would have happened if Guts had died at that moment? I wouldn't bet on Griffith's survival. Think about it: Boscone was a skilled general as well as a fearful fighter and he had seen through Griffith's tactic. The Tudor army panicked and scattered after he died, which was part of Griffith's plan. Without his early death, the victory wouldn't have been half as easy...SirWence said:Ya , it makes sense now. However it appears saving him in the long run has had an adverse effect on their plans.
I am also thinking that the reason why Guts must die in the eclipse or expected to die is because he longer has any "used" value for the completion of God hand...Aazealh said:Anyway, Zodd didn't expect Guts to survive the Eclipse;
