Archer
Rating4/10

Emiya the Red Archer is not as special as it was during the early stages. Not much can be said but he is a dodgy one that deal damage and then chant UBW and that’s all. His skill set were weird and selfish, mostly are a self-benefiting buffs and with no team supporting outcome. Survivability of his were a dodge and defence up, not perfect but it is good enough. His real potential only shines only after strengthening quest were available.

Pros

  • Impressive Noble Phantasm that deals AOE damage.
  • Easy to charge up NP gauge.
  • Can be set to be a critical focused attacker with the right team setup.

Cons

  • Low Np regeneration rate.
  • Need to be at high level to be effective.
  • Weak damage output without NP and criticals.

Strategies & Tips

Emiya has an S growth curve, meaning that you won’t be seeing good numbers from him early in the game and he only truly shines at high levels but it is worth the investment. With command cards of Q A A A B, instead of killing off everyone all by himself, Emiya focuses on filling up his NP gauge and devastates enemies with his AOE Noble Phantasm. Therefore, a team composition that boosts his NP gain is much welcomed.

Noble Phantasm

The sole reason why Emiya is everyone’s favourite Archer (well probably not everyone but at least it’s mine). UBW is a ten hits Noble Phantasm that damages every enemies while ignoring their defenses. By utilizing starting NP charge or NP generation Craft Essence, Emiya is surely a force to be reckon on the battlefield. Just make sure to get him to NP 5 when possible if you are focusing on the NP damaging route to further his damage.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

Eye of the Mind > Clairvoyance/Hawkeye or Hawkeye/Clairvoyance:
Depends on the style you wish to play emiya. For him to generate more crit star actually not a bad thing per se, you need to choose between a one turn boost for an instant noble phantasm or to have a 3 turn star gen which also need a little luck on the side. The two skill will be enhanced in the future to a much better version.

Emiya’s command card forces heavily on Arts card for him to capable of self-producing the Arts combo that should make him a great noble phantasm spammer. But the downside is his low np regeneration rate. As even with his 3 Arts cards he is still lower that what he should have in comparison with others.
