Rating7.5/10

Carmilia is one the best servants that one can obtained from the beginning tutorial roll. Even though her damage might be lacking in the early levels due to her S growth curve, she is a servant worth investing due to her high star generation and NP efficiency.

Pros

  • High NP Charging Rate:

    By aligning your cards in the AQQ pattern, Carmilia can charge up her NP pretty fast especially with a brave chain due to the fact that her Q can land three hits. Coupled with her first skill that also charges her own NP gauge, she can use her NP multiple times a battle without any NP support from the other members.

  • Anti-female NP:

    In Fate/Grand Order there are much more female servants compared to male, making Carmilia a valuable servant to have if you are targeting a specific type of servant. Even though her effectiveness is later outclassed by the appearance of Jack the Ripper, Carmilia is still a good alternative due to her higher NP charging rate and lower cost.

  • High Star Generation:

    Although Carmilia’s star generation is only moderate within the Assassin class servant pool. She is able to make up for it using the Blood Bath A skill which can acquired up to 10 stars per turn at Level 10. The skill is also useful against enemy that focused that critical damage by lowering their critical chance up to 50%.

Cons

  • No Defensive Skillset:

    Carmilia does not have any evasion or defensive buff in her skillsets, therefore requiring the support from others for survivability. Even though her NP does recover her HP by 2000, it does not do any use if she was taken out before she has the chance to use her NP.

  • Inconsistent Damage due to Three Quick Cards:

    More Quick cards equal to more critical stars generation but unfortunately more critical stars generation does not translate directly into more damage output as it is still based on luck factor.

Strategies & Tips

Thanks to her high NP gain with Quick cards, Carmilia is a servant that focuses more on her NP for damage output. She can also act as a critical star support due to her Blood Bath skill. With her only weakness due to the lack of defensive skills, she can fit well in a team that utilizes her as a semi attacker/star support.

Noble Phantasm

Carmilia’s Noble Phantasm, Phantom Maiden is a single target damage dealing NP that also recover her own HP by 2000 and increases her attack by 20% for three turns. Besides that, if used on a female servant, it deals another 170% damage at Level 5, making it one of the few NP in the game that counters female servants.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

Always upgrade Skill 1 as the top priority since at Level 10, it has a 80% success rate to delay the enemy’s NP by a turn while charging up her own NP gauge at the same time. After that, Skill 2 and 3 should be upgraded depending on personal preferences whether you prefer defense reduction or critical chance reduction coupled with additional critical stars gain.
