Just a kind of Q&A for what budget servants we use and why we use them (and as a rule I don’t count welfare servants since they’re not available year-round). As usual for me, I’ll go first.
Saber: Bedivere. While his stats are about average for a three-star, his NP is what solidifies him for me; at higher levels, Bedi can hit like a truck with most enemies, and doubly so against Lancers. Depending on the situation, id even include him in some challenge quests.
Archer: Robin Hood. Use him for most of the same reasons as Bedi; average stats but an awesome NP. For the most part I just have to inflict poison on an enemy and Robin Hood can take them out no problem. While his damage is worse than Bedivere’s, he makes up for it with a better skillset.
Lancer: Cu Chulainn (classic). As I said in a previous list, Cu just cannot die; very beginner friendly as with all of his skills he can last for a long time on the field. From debuff removal to three attack evade, he’s got it all.
Rider: Ushiwakamaru: I’m noticing a theme with most of my picks…once again, average stats but amazing NP. She also has the added benefit of buffing allies for damage and NP gain, so there’s a lot to love with her.
Caster: Hans. Hands down some of the best support in the game. Admittedly his buffs only hit four times out of five during the best scenarios, but his health Regen more than makes up for it; he even beats out Merlin’s healing.
Assassin: Hassan of the Cursed Arm. Under different circumstances, I would have most definitely gone with the Regend himself. As it stands, though, Cursed Arm isn’t just more effective, but more fun to use with his three-turn evade and massive crit star support. Also a nice guy all around.
Berserker: Alright, this one is probably the hardest for me since I love using most berserkers and find a use for just about all of them…id say my choice depends on if they’re soloing or not. If they’re soloing, I’d go with Lu Bu. He maybe a glass cannon, but with his damage steroids he’d probably finish the fight before it would become a problem. If on a team, I’d choose Spartacus. By trading away some hitting power, Spartacus has some ridiculous healing abilities, and by having some other servants to tank hits, he can have enough breathing time to get back into the fight.
With that said, what about you guys?
