Are we going to get Scathachfest early if these come in mid-August instead of mid-September?
For a week, all Interludes (ones you haven’t done yet + these new ones) are 1/2 AP, and we get stories for 6 Servants, 4 of them getting upgrades as well.
1. Kama: no upgrade
2. Shuten: very needed buff to her s3.
- Guts increases from 2,700 —> 4,000
- Adds an NP charge, 30% @ lvl 10
Shuten’s NP wasn’t ever bad, really - just had small values for a lot of things, and bad refund since it only hit for one time. Now, she’s able to loop
barely. She refunds just over 20%, but with her own battery, double Castoria, and a plugsuit 50% she can do it with a regular Kscope.
^ She only has lvl 7 skills even, not lvl 10, and no Mana Loading.
^ This is from next year’s Halloween event - this has 6 enemy waves, so with a plugsuit Oberon she can do it with no starting gauge. (It looks like she has event bonus damage too, unless that’s from the CE for the event. NP1, as well.
^ G&A says she needs MLB Kscope but nah, she doesn’t since a) see that first video and b) we have appends early and maxing out ML on a farming SSR is pretty much always a good investment. He also said she needs NP levels and again, see that first video.
She’s actually the most damaging NP1 SSR AoE Assassin outside of traits and stuff with just her own buffs. Now, that doesn’t really mean she’s great just really means that Assassins have some busted ST people and then uh AoE Berserkers, Avengers, or Alter Egos
3. Suzuka Gozen: a good s1 buff
Suzuka gets a threefold buff to her s1:
- 1 turn Buster + —> 3 times over 3 turns Buster +
- 1 time Star Gen + —> 3 turns of star gen
- adds a 3 times over 3 turns crit damage buff (50% @ lvl 10)
Suzuka had pretty good star gen thanks to her NP being very Emiya-like, and now it’s more consistent if she manages to NP more than once. That same idea is true for her Buster buff, and then the addition of the crit damage is nice since otherwise you needed to rely on her NP to provide that. Even with her s3 providing NP gauge over time, she isn’t a looper outside external batteries, but if you go that route her damage won’t drop off anymore.
4. Atalanta Berserker: another s1 crit buff
- +10 stars —> +20 stars, 1-time
- Buster Crit damage, 1-turn (50%) (added)
Angry Cat already had a crit-leaning skill set, with absorb, a small bomb (a hand grenade of stars?), and a crit damage buff. Now she has even more stars and more crit damage. It’s more of the same, but those extra 10 stars can make a big difference for sure.
5. Lu Bu: He gets a carrot from Carnival Phantasm’s Gudako
Avicebron gets an NP buff, with the usual damage mod increase. It also adds a pre-cast, OC-based NP Damage buff of (20%—>40% @OC5)
NP5 Avicebron can kill a lot of opening waves himself if they’re either low HP or made up of Assassins, and with maxed ML + his own skills he doesn’t need anything in regards to CEs or external help. This makes him very flexible for event farming where you might want to run a drop CE instead of Kscope or something. He basically has the same damage as Caster Eli now.
No one here has that that much love in my heart where I’m very eager to read their story besides Shuten - I hope it’s as good as her Tower appearance where she scared Ibaraki by pretending to be a doll She’s long been bond 10 for me though, so I won’t get much/any use of her skill upgrade (actually wait…humble brag (?) that Shuten, Suzuka, Avicebron, Angry Cat, and Red Hare are all at bond 10 for me and I don’t have Kama, I won’t use any of their upgrades) but does anyone here make you more interested than before?
