Overview

Geronimo

RarityCostClass
3★7Caster
Caster
Rating7/10

[JP]
Geronimo is owns the 2nd highest AoE NP damage for all AoE Casters ingame, and can potentially outdamage the top damager Helena, in the case her buff misses. He also is able to buff his Buster damage to be comparable to that of SSRs, which lets him do decent damage on his normal attacks and NP. His biggest weakness is that while he does good damage on normal attacks and on his NP, his skills do not have any noteworthy secondary effects, and all have long CDs.

Pros

  • Great NP damage, even with low Caster multiplier.
  • Good Buster atk damage.
  • NP has decent utility in increasing team’s survival.
  • Having Card-type buffs can increase his Brave chain damage rather decently.

Cons

  • No notable secondary effects on skills.
  • Burst phases are long with 5 turn CDs and 1 turn duration on skills.
  • Quick up is useless due to having only 1 Quick card.
  • Innate Caster Multiplier still hinders his overall damage.

Strategies & Tips

Casters have always been weak in offense, and Geronimo is no exception. However, Geronimo still fares better than most of his fellow Casters, being able to deal damage through a fairly strong NP, Brave chains, or Buster chains with allies. While he’s still rather limited to fighting Assassins, he at least is able to boast some decent damage against other classes in mixed-class fights, and is able to knock down Assassins reliably compared to his other fellow AoE Casters.

Best Servants to Work with

ServantExplanation
Hans Christian Andersen
Andersen
Hans is able to increase Geronimo’s survivability and damage with his def atk buffs. They would also be able to perform Arts chains together, which increases the team’s survivability as a whole.
Zhuge Liang
Zhuge Liang
Provides offensive and defensive buffs through his skills and NP, as well as charging the party’s NP gauge, allowing Geronimo good access to his NP. Zhuge Liang’s atk buff + def debuff also stack reasonably high, which would multiply well with Geronimo’s cards buffs.
Mash Kyrielight
Mash Kyrielight [JP]
After her upgrade, Mashu would be able to buff Geronimo’s def and atk very well, and Geronimo would be able to heal the party for a little. They would also be able to perform Buster chains more frequently, which increases Geronimo’s chances to deal damage through his Buster buff.
Tamamo no Mae
Tamamo no Mae [JP]
Tamamo is Geronimo’s best friend, as she is able to sync with him really well. Her CD reduction allows Geronimo to be able to deal damage more frequently on his normal attacks, and she can stack her Arts up on him for a total 108% increase in Arts performance. She can also refund his NP, which allows him to use it more often, and she would stack her heals with his to a total of 3000HP.
Wolfgang Amadeus MozartWolfgang Amadeus Mozart [JP]After getting his upgrade, Mozart is able to buff Geronimo’s Arts for up to 102% in total. He can also allow Geronimo to crit for a turn, which would let him either refund his NP through NPAA, or deal damage through Buster crits.

Noble Phantasm

As a Caster, Geronimo’s NP is rather useful against Assassins. It deals good damage when buffed by his skill, and for three turns it reduces enemy party’s crit rate by 20%, while increasing allies’ debuff resistance by 20-60%. It also heals the ally party for 1000-2000HP. As an NP it’s fairly useful, but its utility rises when facing Assassins. Assassins, particularly ghosts, can be rather annoying as they can crit often and debuff your party. While the heal could’ve been better at a larger amount, the additional effects are fairly useful in situations one would usually use Casters for, giving the NP good value.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

Bloody Devil B / Cooldown: 7-5
Increase Buster Performance (1 turn)

A decent skill to have for a Caster with 2 Busters. While it’s not extremely amazing, it allows Geronimo to deal Buster damage comparable to SSRs, which is a welcome feature for a 3*. It maxes out at 50% Buster up, which makes it rather useful for his Brave chains when his 2 Busters are available.

Shamanism B / Cooldown: 7-5
Increase Arts Performance (1 turn)

While the skill maxes at a 50% increase in Arts performance, Geronimo actually benefits from a total 58% increase as it also stacks with his Territory Creation passive. This lets him deal good damage on NP, and allows him to recharge his NP well in NPAA brave chains.

Guardian Beast B / Cooldown: 7-5
Increase Quick Performance (1 turn)

Despite also maxing at a 50% increase, this skill is useless for Geronimo as he only has 1 Quick card. He doesn’t generate that many stars nor does he charge his NP gauge exceptionally with it as well, making the skill largely unwanted.

A QAABB deck is excellent for someone with a skillset like Geronimo, and allows him to deal good damage on both NP and on his normal cards. But at the same time, one would have wanted more out of his Quick card to make use of his 3rd skill.
