It’s finally here (if we can say “finally”, since we’re getting it a bit early comparatively). We have the pre-release first, featuring Napoleon on a solo rate-up with no CEs or 4* Servants, then we have the meat and potatoes of Sigurd, Brynhild, and the collective Valkyries.
5* Archer: Napoleon: 6th on Attack; 9th on HP. An anti-Divine AoE Buster Archer? We already have Nobunaga, don’t we?..Well yeah, she doesn’t have the NP charge, the passive star gen, or the Charisma. She doesn’t even have as good a pair of buff titties as he does, smh. Why am I comparing them again? Anyway, Nap’s a middle ground between Tesla, Ishtar and Gil when it comes to skills and NP damage, and continues the trend of “No bad Archers”. He will be added to the General Pool.
5* Saber: Sigurd: Highest Attack of all Sabers (well, tied), even in JP, with the 8th Highest HP values. Crit Strength (oh boy does he have a lot of Crit strength), Buster Up, Guts, and a targetable Crit Star Drop Rate Up/Debuff Immunity. Somehow he’s never gotten an Interlude to either reduce his CD on his 2nd skill (adding survival tools to primarily offensive skills ) or for his NP damage…maybe someday, right? Not that he really needs it, of course. Just prioritize buffed Buster crits over his NP for damage most of the time. Pair him with his wife for extra crit support and Georgios to make sure the enemy is a dragon. Limited-availability; here today, gone tomorrow…and for the next, oh, quite a few tomorrows. Will return for New Year’s and the next couple of GSSRs.
5* Lancer: Brynhild: Thanks to her recent Interlude, this shieldmaiden has reached her full FGO potential. 3rd Highest Attack; 7th Highest HP. MUCH better support potential thanks to the drastically increased values of Hero’s Assistant. Limited-availability; will return for the GSSRs and hopefully a random Thanksgiving banner or something.
4* Lancer: Valkyrie: Highest HP of the 4* Lancers, but the lowest Attack…thankfully they’re Quick-based, have good hitcounts on their AoE NP (7*3=21 total), and their refund potential with their 1st skill, 3rd skill and Skadi is very, very high. Plus, you get 3 Servants for the price of 1. Still, I would consider them strictly inferior to Parvati at equal NP levels in regards to Skadi looping, but if you get them at multiple NP levels they really shape up. Will be added to the General Pool and is a potential target for your next Exchange Ticket.
5* CE: Child of Atlas is Origin Bullet, but for Berserkers. Also comes with Ignore Defense for those pesky CQs or boss fights. Put this on your Foreigners or JAlter and watch them chew up those mad hunks. The bump from 1 copy to MLB is small (5% extra damage) and it has split stats, so don’t fret if you don’t get it MLB.
4* CE: Sweeper is a budget Another Ending, but with split stats and leaning towards HP at that. Seriously, at MLB this is equal to the effects of a single Another Ending, so if you have that CE this one becomes necessary only for party cost.
3* CE: Sakura’s Special Bento is a very budget Gentle Affection, if you weren’t around during either da Vinci run and haven’t been spooked by it at any other time. Again, no reason to use this one except maybe party cost.
Who are you summoning for?
- Child of Atlas (5* CE)
- Sweeper (4* CE)
- Sakura’s Special Bento (3* CE)
- I’m Skipping this banner entirely; Skadi/Summer banners are more important
What’s with the Lostbelts and giving us such good Fate couples? We got Ana and Kadoc, and now we reunited Bryn and Sigurd…and there’s more to come in the future, too.
