Overview

Altria Pendragon (Alter)

RarityCostClass
4★12Saber
Saber
Rating--/10

An NP orientated servant who relies on outside factors to charge her NP, as it is difficult for her to do so on her own. Her skills can provide benefits to the party, but are mostly orientated towards herself. She can also make use of stars with the star weight that she has.

Pros

  • Very High NP damage.
  • Skills complement her strength.

Cons

  • Has difficulty filling her NP gauge.
  • HP is on the lower side, and she has no defensive skills.

Strategies & Tips

Generally you would be using her to try and NP as soon as possible, so a good strategy would be to put her in a party with servants that can fill her gauge for her. Other things to keep in mind is her High NP damage and trying to maximize that through the use of buffs to her attack / Buster efficacy.

Noble Phantasm

A very powerful AOE Noble Phantasm, especially when combined with her Mana Burst. One important thing to note is her NP also charges up her gauge, which helps with her appalling NP gain.
