I’m sure these have been discussed before, but there are a few Servants whose class don’t make sense to me and I just really need to vent
Leaving outside the joke servants whose existence should be an affront to the Throne, I think there are quite a few servants who really don’t belong in their current class.
Riders especially have quite a few servants who I think don’t belong there. I know the qualifications for each class can sometimes be fuzzy, but this class in particular seems to have become the default class for most monarchs and a couple of divine spirits even though some of them are not known for their riding. I’d argue that monarchs should by default be Casters to make use of the Territory Creation skill.
Quetzalcoatl – I never see her ride anything. Sure, she can summon winged snakes but that’s not her primary schtick. The description of the Rider class specifically states that Riders trade lower stats (compared to the three Knight classes) in exchange for a powerful mount as their Noble Phantasm. In Quetzalcoatl’s case, she would have made more sense as a talking Berserker…and honestly her personality, fighting style, and actions in Babylonia make her seem like one.
Marie Antoinette – what exactly is that crystal horse supposed to be and how is she known for it? If they had made Marie a proper Caster (and not the joke summer version that they had given her), she could have been the type of servant who charms entire nations into submission before they finally revolt and try to kill her and her master, leaving a wake of destruction in her path. What a powerful and terrifying Servant she could have been, instead of the joke harem-bait that they keep giving us.
There’s a lot of other examples that I could list, but I wanna give other people a chance to vent. What other Servants do you guys believe don’t really belong in their class?
