Rating8/10

As the second Ruler class being released in the game after Jeanne d’Arc, Amakusa Shirou has quite a similar skillset to her but has much more offensive power due to his damage dealing NP and a skill that increases his NP gauge every turn to enhance his NP usability.

Pros

  • High durability. As one of the few servants that falls under the Ruler class, Shirou takes reduced damage from all the main classes servants except Berserker, allowing him to be quite durable to sustain long battles even without any skills that can increase his defense or provides self evasion.

  • Two types of Extra attack. Usually for any other servants, no matter what kind of command cards you choose for your Brave Chain the Extra attack would not change but Shirou is a special one where he has two types of Extra attack which we would call them as the long range and the short range ones. The long range Extra attack has much higher damage, NP gain and generates more critical stars compared to the short range ones. Therefore, it is good to keep this in mind when executing your attacks by placing either the Buster or Quick cards in the third slot for the long range Extra attack.

Cons

  • Awkward to be fought as an enemy. Although Shirou is a great servant to have in your party, he is someone that you wouldn’t want to be going up against as an enemy. Imagine him building up his NP gauge with his Baptism Rite skill while being able to stun you with God’s Resolution and lastly, his NP which is able to remove all your defensive buffs such as evasion and invincibility.

Strategies & Tips

Shirou is kind of like a semi-attacker that can absorbs quite a bit of damage by being a Ruler class despite not having any defensive skills of his own. Besides that, as he also does not possess any attack buffs, his attack isn’t going to be as high as the other main attackers but he is quite solid in terms of normal damage output since his attack is not weak to any of the main classes servants.

Noble Phantasm

Shirou’s Noble Phantasm, Twin Arm Big Crunch is an AOE NP that deals OK damage but its main utility lies within its ability to remove all the enemies’ buffs upon use, allowing it to get rid of those annoying defense up or damage reduction buffs. Besides that, as Shirou himself is a Ruler class, his NP would not be weak to any classes except Avengers which is less in the game.

Best Servants to Work with

ServantExplanation
Jeanne d’Arc
Jeanne d’Arc
A Ruler combination within the party along with another support is going to help you last long enough in battle as Jeanne is able to provide healing and invincibility with her NP which can also increases Shirou’s NP damage if chained together.
Altria Pendragon
Altria Pendragon
Artoria has the same command cards layout as Shirou while also being able to increase his attack with her Charisma skill. Besides that, by combining Artoria’s NP with Shirou’s, she can recharge her NP gauge much faster due to the overcharge effect.
Nero Claudius (Bride)
Nero Claudius (Bride)[JP]
Nero is a suitable semi-support to be used alongside Shirou as she helps by increasing his attack and star generation rate while also being able to recover his HP.

Best CEs

CEExplanation
Heaven's Feel
Heaven's Feel
As Shirou can easily charge up his NP gauge using his Baptism Rite skill, it is good to have his NP damage boosted as he can use it multiple times in a battle. Although Black Holy Grail has a much higher increase in NP damage compared to this CE, it depends on the situation where you want to use it as the extra damage taken every turn will hurt quite a bit in long battles.
Limited/Zero Over
Limited/Zero Over
This CE can be recommended as an alternative to Heaven’s Feel as it not only increases Shirou’s NP damage due to being a Buster type but also increases his damage output with his Buster cards.
Piece of Year 2030
Piece of Year 2030
Due to his high durability as a Ruler class servant, Shirou can benefits the party by equipping this CE as he can provides additional critical stars to the party just by staying alive.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

2 > 1 > 3

We would like to prioritize the second skill to be raised first as the 20% NP charge per turn at max level allows Shirou to use his NP fast enough even without NP support from party members. After that, we would like to level the first skill for the critical stars gain and leave the third skill for the last as its scope of usability is only limited to servants.
