2★4Rider

Rating8.5/10

Saint George is one of the three 3-turns Taunters (the other two being Chevalier d’Eon and Leonidas). Although a 2★, his bulk equals that of the tankier 3★ Servants, which allows him to perform his role very well. He is also easy to use, as his defense buff is built-in to his Taunt. Additionally, his overall skillset and even his Noble Phantasm complement his role really well, making Saint George one of the most useful 2★ Servants in the game.

However, he has a very low ATK stat, and his Rider class is somewhat as a hindrance as he tends to absorb much of the available critical stars.

Pros

  • His 3-turns Taunt is very beneficial when paired with Berserkers, effectively making them invulnerable from single target damage for the duration.
  • Easy to use, his skill usage timing is easy to grasp.
  • High bulk
  • Allows for DEF buff stacking strategies

Cons

  • Low ATK
  • High critical star weight
  • No hard defensive skill (e.g. Evade/Invulnerability)

Strategies & Tips

Saint George should be paired with a Berserker and a support who can provide him with defense buffs. His Taunt should be used in turns where the Berserker is at risk (e.g. when an opponent has full NP gauge, or when there are chimeras around). Use Battle Continuation when George is Taunting and at risk of dying. Martyr’s Soul, his healing skill, should be used as soon as George starts losing HP to maximize its cooldown.

Noble Phantasm

Ascalon is a Single-Target Noble Phantasm, which applies the Dragon trait to an enemy and increases Saint George’s own defense for one turn. This Noble Phantasm can be used in synergy with Servants who specialize in fighting Dragons, such as Siegfried, but it is generally more recommended to use this in turns where you expect Saint George to receive large amounts of damage.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

  • Guardian Knight A+

    This skill is always the first priority for Saint George, both for the cooldown reduction and the increase in DEF buff.

  • Martyr’s Soul B+

    This skill is his second priority. As it is his only means to restore HP aside from external support, the cooldown reduction may be a decisive factor in many battles.

  • Battle Continuation A

    Most of the time, you only get to use Battle Continuation once per battle. As such, this skill can be more or less ignored until the other two are done, although it is generally recommended to level it to at least level 4.
