Quick has no real sustain so I can see them adding like a Merlin for quick, would go well with her being a ruler too.

With skill cooldown so we can laugh harder at Blue Tamamo

a semi support semi dps. If Koyanskaya/tamamo can do it Skadi can do it too.

I’d like to see her with a deck override system similar to Summer BB or Bunnytoria. Basically leverage the uber buffed servant by giving them priority in card draws by replacing her own since Quick is the most face card centric of the decks.

If she has buff removal resistance, that’d be pretty insane too.

That loop support poll was supposed to be 2 choices as it’s unlikely she’d only use one of these. Bah. Maybe replace it with a new copy? Yarp, that worked as editing the original failed. You’ll all have to vote on that again.

I dont even think she’ll be quick tbh

They regularly change complete focuses and kits with summer alts so idk why she would be different

Because Quick is in the fucking pits and they featured her as the centre of the 7th anni illustration, plus as the theme bringer of the summer event, and have just released:

  • Arts Merlin
  • Budget Arts crit support
  • 60% gauge pure atk Arts CE
  • A faster Melusine adjacent Buster uber looper
  • A new Buster MC

If they want people to pull Quick then this is the time to do it. Buster/Arts have a -full- roster of supports. Quick just has Skadi. Now Quick can have Skadi and Skadi.

I’m gonna go out on a further limb and guess Ibuki as a Quick AoE because Berserker ubers for the other card types exist, with 2 ubers and 1 decent SSR in Buster AoE.

They often keep servants in the same card type though. Its a toss up at worst

Ngl I don’t think there are enough quick lobbyists in lasagna hq for them tk care enough about bringing it back

And even if she is a quick support, summer alts aren’t exactly meta setters

To add:

Skadi is hyped up. They intentionally kept her NP under wraps, and teased her at 7th anni. Lady Avalon is the prelude for Summer. No way they are going to make the Queen of Quick a meh pull after Lady Avalon; they have no issue with back to back super supports (Koyan/Oberon yo).

This Summer has broken all precedents for Summer Servant trends:

  • Uber Support (summer) Arts Not-Merlin
  • No Wada Servant
  • No CE based Servant
  • 3 SSR banners
  • Welfare not available until the Epilogue

Even if they keep card type, they normally shift focus so you dont have 2 of the exact same unit

Like summer raikou is buster like her og but they’re completely different in terms of function

You only get to choose one of the 3 existing Valkyries, but they all come with another 2nd Valkyrie (costume) from a different group of 3.

OG Skadi got buffed into total crit focus, she’s not really an NP enabler anymore. She also has no real stall capability. Absolutely loads of room to play.

Doing things slightly differently isn’t some big groundbreaking shift

And the CE based servant thing has probably been a coincidence up to this point anyway, and 3 ssrs isnt even a good thing

Ofc I could be wrong, but I dont think she’ll be quick, and if she is, she probably won’t be some fantastic support ushering in a new quick era

Everything is speculation though so :feh_lucyshrug:

She’s front and centre on the 7th anni illustration, the one sold as the key art. Why would she not be an uber Servant? Because lolswimsuit? Lady Avalon is a better Merlin and in a swimsuit.
