[JP]
Looking at the pool of SR Assassins, it’s somewhat unfortunate that there have been more misses more than there are hits. The cavalry classes in general have always had been inconsistent in terms of quality, and sadly the SR Assassin roster is the same. Still, Carmilla can be considered one of the better ones, as she does play out fairly well.

[NA]
Carmilla’s 3rd skill upgrade doesn’t exactly make her performance differ amazingly, but it does polish it further.

Pros

  • Very good NP gain allows her to charge her NP at a Quick rate
  • Overall stargen is decent due to 3rd skill
  • Can survive and hit decently due to her NP’s secondary effects
  • NP contains a decent Anti-Female buff

Cons

  • Overall damage is hindered by her class multiplier deck
  • NP spam capability is lowered by her NP’s card type
  • Lacks a hard survival function

Strategies & Tips

Carmilla is an interesting bundle of an Assassin. Her style of dealing damage is essentially through spamming her NP--- which grants her an ATK buff and a heal, allowing her to make her damage grow with every use and sustain herself. In other words, she deals damage over time. Still, her overall damage and spam capability is actually limited. Still, an interesting ability that Carmilla possesses is her ability to debilitate enemies. Her skills allow her to crowd control to an extent, which boosts her worth overall as she would be able to deal damage and sustain herself whilst disabling the enemy,

That said, Carmilla isn’t exactly perfect--- all of her capabilities are limited, and sometimes one would be left with an unsatisfactory feeling when she doesn’t live up to what one expects her to do.

Noble Phantasm

Carmilla’s Noble Phantasm deals depressingly low damage at NP1, ranking in as the 3rd lowest ST NP among all Assassins. However, it at least comes with rather nice secondary effects. It deals extra damage to Female enemies, heals her, and buffs her ATK for 3 turns--- which allows Carmilla to keep herself alive and increase her attack power. The NP’s card type is somewhat interesting too--- as a Buster card it allows Carmilla to deal more damage overall with her NP brave chains, especially with her ATK buff included, but it also limits her potential in recharging her her NP quickly.

Best Servants to Work with

ServantExplanation
Hans Christian Andersen
Hans Christian Andersen
Hans is able to increase Carmilla’s overall survivability even further with his DEF and healing buffs. Aside from that, he’s also able to increase her offense by stacking ATK buffs, and increase her overall damage and NP spam by providing Arts cards for first-card bonuses and passively generating stars.
Zhuge Liang
Zhuge Liang
Waver is able to provide Carmilla more survivability and offense through his DEF and ATK buffs, as well as disable enemies further with his stun and NP drain. He’s also able to charge her NP gauge directly, which can allow her to use her NP at a quicker rate.
Merlin
Merlin
[JP]
Merlin is able to boost Carmilla’s damage by great amounts through his Buster buff and ATK buff, as well as support her survivability through his healing buff. Not only that, he’s also able to support her NP spam potential by passively charging her NP gauge and generating stars.

Best CEs

Increase NP damage

As someone who is able to charge their NP quickly, it is no question that a CE like this would fit very well. An NP damage up would boost Carmilla’s overall damage very well, especially when it multiplies with her ATK/DEF buffs/debuffs

Bond CE: Iron Maiden

A useful bond CE is rare, and it’s nice to see that Carmilla’s is one of those. It grants her a 30% increase in damage, and a 30% chance to seal an enemy’s NP on every hit. It’s not exactly that special, but as Carmilla’s best performance comes out from allowing her to perform Brave chains often, it allows her to disable her enemies with decent chances.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

Vampirism C / Cooldown: 8-6
Chance to Decrease charge by 1
Increase own NP gauge

An NP charge skill aids Carmilla’s potential and capability to charge and use her NP frequently. Vampirism in general is a lovely skill too, as it comes with a good chance to decrease the enemy’s charge, allowing for some form of crowd control.

Torture Techniques A / Cooldown: 7-5
Decrease enemy DEF (3 turns)

A decent DEF down skill allows Carmilla to hit a little better. Although it doesn’t really make her NP hit any harder that much, the real benefit to this skill is in how it stacks up with her NP’s ATK buff. With the ATK buff considered it would allow her to hit on her brave chains with a 40% increase in ATK, and if one is lucky enough to be able to use her NP on the 3rd turn of the skill’s duration the amount increases to 60%. It’s not anything too amazing, but it does allow her to deal decent damage on her Brave chains, particularly on her Extra Card.

Bathing in Fresh Blood A / Cooldown: 8-6 [Strengthening Upgrade]
Decrease Critical Hit Rate (3 turns)
Gain stars per turn (3 turns)

A bloody solid skill, if you know what I mean. This skill allows Carmilla to somewhat improve her defenses, as it lowers an enemy’s chance to crit. The skill shines even more when considering the fact that her natural enemy, Riders have a pretty considerable crit rate. The star-per-turn might seem like icing on top, but it’s actually a very nice bonus when considering the fact that she has 3 Quick cards. As an old generation Servant, her hitcounts don’t allow her generate a huge amount of stars. As such, with this skill her overall stargen increases, allowing her more chances to crit and refill her gauge through them.

There’s a few interesting things that comes with Carmilla’s deck. Sporting a traditional QQQAB deck limits Carmilla’s overall damage and stargen disappointingly. However, despite her hitcounts, Carmilla’s base gain is actually very good, equaling with other units who have 4 hits on their Quicks. In a way, her deck mirrors her entire kit--- it complements her capability to charge her NP and deal damage, but also hinders it due to its big flaws.
