Overview

Miyamoto Musashi

RarityCostClass
5★16Saber
Saber
Rating7.5/10

Miyamoto is an extremely offense focused servant, her skillset revolving around damage skills and buster buffs which are the main cards in her set. She introduces skills that are unique to her, making her set all the more interesting and powerful. All her skills synergize with her main goal; putting out damage. A job that she does exceptionally well.

Miyamoto’s base stats are pretty decent, with an above average attack and a nice HP stat. Her NP gen is surprisingly good for a servant with 3 buster cards in her deck. In an ABQ chain she’s able to pull off about 30% charge. Her stargen however is pretty weak, barely able to pull off anything above 10 stars consistently. Her passive skills are nothing too amazing, featuring a high ranking Magic resistance, protecting her from pesky debuffs.

However, Miyamoto’s active skills more than make up for her weaknesses. Her previously mentioned unique skill gives her double hitcount, effectively giving double stargen, double NP gen on top of 30% bonus damage at level 30%. With this buff active, her QBB chain gets her a whopping 30 stars while her BQA chain can fill her NP gauge to 100% (Provided she crits.) Her other skill is a regular Buster card buff, which also provides invincibility pierce, making sure her attack lands on any foes who attempt to avoid damage. Her last skill gives her invulnerability to protect herself on top of a nice stargen buff and debuff cleanse. Miyamoto sets the standard for single target and challenges anyone who dare challenges her spot at the top.

Pros

  • Extremely strong kit which is unique to her
  • A large amount of Buster cards leading to huge damage output
  • Dual wielding

Cons

  • NPgen and stargen are reliant on her skills
  • Need to know when to activate her first skill.

Strategies & Tips

Miyamoto will enjoy being paired with servants who are able to boost her damage output and provide stars to her consistently to help her crit. Servants who can also help her increase her NP gauge rapidly will also be extremely helpful. Her first skill should be used right before her brave chain, allowing her to hit massive numbers and generate a whole bunch of stars and NP. Her 2nd skill should be used before a buster chain or her NP, allowing her to make the most out of the Buster boost. It can situationally be used to hit enemies with dodge or invincibility. Her last skill should be used to clear her of any debuffs, protect her from an NP or before a brave chain to maximize her stargen buff.

Noble Phantasm

Rikudou is a single target Buster NP which boosts NP damage before removing all of the enemies buffs on hit. This skill is extremely potent when paired with the rest of Miyamoto’s skills. This allows her to deal with pesky buff spammers while also dealing huge amounts of damage to enemies.

Best Servants to Work with

ServantExplanation
Merlin
Merlin
Once again, our favourite magus shows up, proving his worth as the number 1 buster support. He makes sure that Miyamoto gets generous boosts to her attack, her NP gauge which is sorely lacking, her Buster cards and crit damage increase, while also providing NP and star gen on his NP. He covers all her needs and makes sure she pushes out damage without worrying about anything else.
Zhuge Liang
Zhuge Liang
Waver is another strong caster support, giving her large boosts to the NP gauge, making sure she can NP often. He also gives flat attack buffs and a large crit buff, allowing Miyamoto to do devastating damage to anyone who receives a brave chain from her.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Mozart provides Miyamoto with a whopping 50 stars upon activation of his 3rd skill (Provided it is level 10.) This confirms 100% crits on all her hits during a brave chain even without her other buffs active. On top of that, his NP drops enemy defense, allowing Miyamoto to do more damage to enemies.

Best CEs

CEExplanation
Victor from the Moon
Victor from the Moon
Victor from the moon is the go to CE for crit buster servants, allowing them to make the most of their damage output sources. This allows Miyamoto to hit harder with her attacks while also increasing her star and NP generation on crits.
Limited/Zero Over
Limited/Zero Over
A rare time where L/ZO is used, the reason being that due to her erratic generation of stars, she might not be able to crit consistently without a stargen support. L/ZO makes sure she damages consistently with her strongest card without relying on RNG to help.
First Sunrise
First Sunrise
First sunrise gives a boost to Miyamoto’s buster cards while also gifting her a 40% filled gauge at the start of battle. This allows her to NP earlier without relying on her skills to fill up her NP gauge.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

  • Fifth form A

    This skill is Miyamoto’s main source of damage output, allowing her to deal a crap ton of damage on her brave chains. It is also her main source of NP and Stargen. As such, this skill should be leveled first.
  • Empyrean Eye A

    This skill is Miyamoto’s buster buff, allowing her to deal great damage on buster chains or on her NP, making sure that maximum damage is put out. It also has the nice bonus of ignoring invulnerability and dodge skills, confirming that her attacks land on enemies.This skill should be leveled second.
  • Empty mind A

    This skill gives Miyamoto invincibility on top of clearing all her debuffs and a small stargen buff. This provides her with more survivability while also making sure her damage is not affected by any debuffs. The stargen is appreciated on brave chains with fifth form activated, however it is not that important. This skill should be leveled last.

Miyamoto has a QABBB deck, meaning she can self buster chain, not including her NP. She can push out huge amounts of damage like this, but this also hinders her star and NP gen. She is highly reliant on her skills to boost these aspects and hold her back in this regard.
