I’m agree with most of above comment but.
I mean, that’s the reason why tier list exist.
People can run both of jeanne and clear CQ with 200+ turn, but instead running that why not making a specific team with tamamo/merlin?
That’s why the writers said :
Jeanne remains a slow clearer as well, with little use outside of the hardest content, especially if a Master is in no danger of being defeated.
So if we face a really difficult situations, like we can’t really CQ faster, then we can simple tap jeanne and using her.
As most of you guys already said that jeanne play a really good role being a universal support, but imo the difference between her and merlin/tamamo are she didn’t offer ATK/Buff to increasing DPS output.
Yes she work really great to keep the party alive (heal, removing debuff, stun, an invicibility), but the only one she can offer to DPS to increase damage output are crit stars.
Maybe that’s the reasons why they keep her at tier 2.
If you ask why i think that team-wide buff is one of their tier placement reason, maybe because i read this
Regrettably, she does not have much to offer to the team due to her lackluster Caster damage output and a lack of teamwide utilities on her skills.
It’s from Da Vinci description.
Like why should mentioning that?, Da Vinci indeed a AOE DPS with survival abilities, should they mention a timewide buff?, lol.
That’s the reasons why i think that they not just judging the placement because of the servant niche itself.
It’s contain :
- Being Support who can keep party alive and in same time giving buff to dps
- Being DPS while in same time give party wide buff
And looks like jeanne failed in point 1.
You can blame me because my opinion.
I know that’s this pov can insult jeanne fans, i’m sorry about that.
But, tbh i love her character,gameplay, etc (even if i don’t have her, sad).
Her skill, niche, etc as good as all of you have said, but looks like it still doesn’t fill the 1st tier criteria by gamepress.
It’s must be really helpful if they share all of the criteria needed to fit the tier placement, so there’s no misunderstanding about the placement itself.
