[JP]

Billy is a critical damager. Despite having low atk stats, his crit damage hits on par with most SRs with just his own buffs, and he is also able to use his NP frequently through a great NP charge skill and crit charging, giving him high overall offensive power.

Pros

  • 162% total increase in crit damage with skills and passive
  • 2nd Highest ST NP damage among 3* Archers and critcharging gives him good offensive capability
  • Has naturally high starweight as an Archer

Cons

  • QQAAB deck and Archer multiplier limits his overall crit damage
  • Has only 2 hits on Quick, limiting his NP gain and stargen on Quick cards

Strategies & Tips

As a damager focused on crits, Billy would do best in teams that can provide him stars and multiplicative buffs like atk ups to maximize his damage. Billy is also rather reliant on his teammates to provide him stars, and a team that can maximize his potentially frequent NP use would also be welcome to increase his overall damage.

Noble Phantasm

Billy’s NP is a standard ST Quick NP, that hits for good damage due to its interlude and NP5. Billy’s NP also debuffs the enemy’s crit rate by a good 20-60%, and due to it having 3 hits, it also makes for some good stargen on his brave chains. One would usually use his NP in a NPQQ brave chain to generate stars, and then deal damage with his Busters and Arts the next turn.

Best Servants to Work with

ServantExplanation
Hans Christian Andersen
Hans Christian Andersen
Hans is able to increase Billy’s offense by providing an additional crit buff, and with his atk up. He can also provide more survivability with his def up and heals, and can passively generate stars as well.
Zhuge Liang
Zhuge Liang
Provides offensive and defensive buffs through his skills and NP, as well as charging the party’s NP gauge. Zhuge Liang is able to provide a high-scaling atk bonus with his def debuff and atk up, and is also able to give a 100% crit damage up.
Gaius Julius Caesar
Gaius Julius Caesar
Caesar is able to buff Billy’s crit and NP damage with his buffs. Not only that, but Caesar is also able to provide Billy with a 100% stargen up, which can let Billy generate a good amount of stars on his on attacks, especially with his Buster and Extra attack.
(Note: Caesar’s stargen up buff requires his upgrade)
Assassin of Agartha
Assassin of Agartha
Wu Zetian is able to increase Billy’s damage with her multiplicative Quick up and Atk up. She can also generate a good amount of stars for Billy, and perform Quick chains together.

Best CEs

CEExplanation
Imaginary Around
Imaginary Around
Increase in Quick Performance
A Quick up boosts Billy’s NP damage, and boosts his crit damage on Quicks very well by stacking with his Riding to multiply with his buffs.
Heaven's Feel
Heaven's Feel
Increase in NP damage
This CE does well in case one wants to focus on Billy’s NP usage instead, due to his potential to use NP frequently.
Lunar Hot Springs
Lunar Hot Springs
Increase in Crit Damage
Increases his overall damage in crits. However, this is not really the best CE to use, as this will only add unto his own crit up buffs.
Serene Moment
Serene Moment
Increased Performance in Multiple Card types
Mixing effects of Quick, Arts, and Buster up is rather useful for Billy, as it multiplies with his crit damage up. Arts + Quick up CEs are useful in particular, as it also boosts his overall NP gain.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

Skill Priority: 1 / 2 / 3

  • Marksmanship A++

    Maxing at a 120% increase in crit damage, this skill forms the core of Billy’s crit damage. Despite its high scaling, it has decent downtime, making it easy to work with.
  • Quick Draw A+

    Maxing at a 50% NP charge, this skill gives Billy good chance to use his NP frequently. It’s no surprise to have Billy charging well with his crits, so with this skill Billy gets high chances to back up his NP usage within a few turns he uses it.
  • Mind’s Eye (False) C

    At max, it provides a decent 32% increase in crit damage, giving Billy a good mode of survival while also improving his defining trait. While the CD unfortunately doesn’t match with his 1st skill’s, it’s not as big of an issue considering one would be waiting to get Billy’s cards and have enough stars at the same time when using his skills in the first place.

A QQAAB deck is great on Billy to provide himself stars, and to boost his NP gain. But unfortunately, Billy suffers from having only 2 hits on his Quick, making his stargen and NP gain severely weakened. If this was going to be the case, it would’ve been much more preferable to have a QAABB deck on Billy to increase his crit damage, or just give him 3 hits on his Quick. However, it is worth noting that Billy has 4 hits on his Buster and Extra attack, which does somewhat give him some aid in stargen and NP gain.
