Use SQ to Increase Altria P (Archer) and Martha (Ruler) NP OR add More Servants?

Since I am primarily a free to play player (exception of: the exclusive 5 star servant event), I’m often at a state of prioritizing and saving SQ. I can even take this question further and generalize it a bit more, would it be more beneficial if I were to focus on increasing a servants NP level? Or would it be more beneficial to add more SR or SSR servants to my roster?

With almost 300 SQ, I currently plan to increase the NP of Altria (Archer) and Martha Ruler , which they are both currently at LVL 2. However, I can also save up for Ereshkigal as she seems like a decent support/damage buster hybrid. What are your thoughts on this? Side Note: Merlin and Waver should be clear choices to save up for instead of Ereshkigal. However, there is an abundance of these two servants on the NA server that I just end borrowing them.

If knowing my current roster helps with your insight to my question, these are the servants I am currently using/upgrading to max OR already are capped:

  • Amakusa Shirou
  • Martha (Ruler)
  • Altria (Archer)
  • Hans
  • Tamamo (Caster)
  • Scathach (Lancer and Assassin)
  • Heracles
  • Kintoki (Rider)
  • Helena (Caster)
  • Nursery Rhyme
  • Bedivere
  • Mordred
  • Nikola Tesla
  • Irisveil (Holy Grail)
  • Mata Hari
  • Drake
  • Orion
  • Kiyohime (Berserker)
  • Elisabeth (Lancer)
  • Georgios
  • Ushiwakamaru
  • Chloe
  • Cu (Lancer)
  • Suzuka Gozen
  • BB
  • Meltryllis
  • Passionlip
  • Atalante
  • Gorgon

Uh… who?

fgo is more about specialised servants than anything ,so i will always say that you’re better of getting a new servant who will be able to help you in a specific moment(example siegfried against dragons)
anyway since you are ftp better try and get new servants

ah didn’t see that one xD+scathach rider ?

Is it better if I say: Altria Pendragon (Archer)?

yep xD

Damn. Assassin mb xD

don’t worry about it xD

The damage increase between each level after 2 pales in comparison between the damage increase from 1 to 2, so I’d say NP2 Summer Artoria and Summer Martha is already superb. I would save up for Eresh.

I wouldn’t bother trying to upgrade their NPs. The biggest jump in damage/effect of a NP comes from NP1 to NP2, and you already have both at NP2. You’d have to go from NP2 to NP5 to experience the same difference. I’d advise that you roll for other Servants.

Regarding the Merlin/Waver vs Ereshkigal, rolling the Merlin banner also gives you a shot at Altria (Lancer Alter), which fills the AoE lancer role. She also pairs well with Merlin for the crit burst as well. Having your own Merlin also opens the door for double Merlin or Merlin+Support Waver. Finally, JP hasn’t had another Merlin banner, so this upcoming September banner is the last one for a long while.

With all that said, your point is valid in that it’s so much easier finding support Merlin/Waver than it is for DPS. Your roster looks very developed such that you don’t need even Merlin. If I were in your shoes, I’d also roll Ereshkigal, then look toward Skadi.
