Like the title says – you’re a participant in the Holy Grail War and the servant you summoned is your first SSR in FGO. How do you think you will fare?
I’ll start. My first SSR was Hijikata Toshizo, a Berserker.
While Berserkers are notoriously hard to control, I’m lucky that Hijikata is actually one of the few who can talk and be reasoned with, thus helping preserve my command seals. He also seems to be quite the tactician on the battlefield, so I can depend on him to fight smart unless he goes berserk.
His fighting style is a mixture of swords and guns, so I’d say he’s pretty well-rounded as a combatant. Unfortunately his Noble Phantasm seems to be one of those “for emergency use only” types since it’s likely to kill him (ala Frankenstein and Napoleon) so I can’t really depend on it. However, he does have a healing factor and can be hard to actually kill – and once he’s close to death he gets even stronger and scarier.
So all in all, I’d say we have a decent chance of winning since that’s what’s most important to Hijikata.
How about you guys?
