Rating9.0 / 10

Heracles is a strong servant with a skill set that grants survivability uncommon in Bersekers. He has good survivability from said skills. He has problems building up his NP, but when he manages to unleash it he can obliterate most targets. He will be good throughout all stages of the game.

Pros

  • High Attack coupled with Divinity.
  • Single Target Buster NP, enables a powerful NPBB.
  • Guts and Evasion as a Berserker.

Cons

  • Hard to generate NP.
  • As a Berserker even with all of his skills helping him, he is still liable to dying quickly.

Strategies & Tips

Heracles is a strong Buster based damage dealer, while normally relying on his NP for his damage, he can also be enabled as a crit Buster user by absorbing stars if combined with someone who can generate a good number of stars to compensate for his not stellar absorption.

Noble Phantasm

Nine Lives Shooting Hundred Heads: Single Target Buster Noble Phantasm that also reduces the enemy’s defense according to Overcharge. The defense drop can help others if followed up with his Brave chain or other servants NPs.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

  • Bravery A+:

    A strong attack buff, High priority to extend Heracles’s strengths.

  • Eye of the mind (false) B:

    An Evasion skill with a crit damage buff. Evasion on a Berserker is rare and extremely useful as it helps Hercules survive much longer than other Berserkers. Medium Priority.

  • Battle Continuation A:

    Guts in itself is a useful skill, but it is unlikely this skill will be used multiple times in a single battle, and the health regained from Guts is not significant.

His Triple Busters enables the infamous NPBB combo for maximum burst damage. It also provides good damage on its own. However the single Arts and Quick in his deck makes it hard for him to build up his NP in the first place.
