Nero Claudius Bride form is a highly versatile Saber class servant that has almost every buff that you need within her skillset, with the bonus of having the ability to use it on others rather than on herself only. Her high NP acquisition rate also stabilizes her role as an attacker as she can spam her NP with ease.

Pros

  • Balanced in almost every aspect

    Nero’s skillset comprises of everything that you need, NP generation, attack boost, increase star generation, defense up and even HP recovery. Furthermore, these skills do not apply to herself only but can be also used on her allies, making her kind of like a semi-support to the party. If you plan to use her as an attacker you can use all the buffs on her instead, making her a highly versatile servant to have.
  • High NP acquisition

    With Arts cards that hit for three times for 2.1% NP charge in total, Nero is a beast when it comes to NP charging. By combining her NP with her Stars in Heaven skill in a brave chain, Nero can almost fully charged her NP again even after use with the aid of a last slotted Arts card, allowing her to be solely dedicated to NP spamming as her main damage source.

Cons

  • Difficulty in making use of increased star generation rate

    When using the Flower on Earth skill on Nero herself for the increase in attack, the increase in star generation rate however cannot be fully utilized by her to having only one Quick card. Therefore, it is preferable to apply the skill on another servant focusing on critical stars instead of on herself to maximize the benefits from the skill.

Strategies & Tips

Nero can act as an attacker or semi-support in a party as she is able to provide her party members with a variety of buffs depending on the situation. Besides that, she is also able to deal quite a lot of damage on her own due to high performance on her command cards allowing her to buff herself if there are no other suitable candidates.

Noble Phantasm

Nero’s Noble Phantasm, Fax Caelestis is a single target NP that deals considerate amount of damage while applying additional debuff of burn, defense down and critical chance chance down to the target for five turns when overcharged. Due to Nero’s ability to charge up her NP gauge very quickly, it is possible to spam her NP for a few turns consecutively with NP support from her party members.

Best Servants to Work with

ServantExplanation
Tamamo no Mae
Tamamo no Mae[JP]
Tamamo works very well together with Nero as her Fox’s Wedding skill boosts Nero’s Arts card performance by a lot and the cooldown decreased from Tamamo’s NP allows Nero to spam her NP more effectively.
Zhuge Liang
Zhuge Liang
Able to provide defensive and offensive buffs to Nero while charging up her NP gauge at the same time.
Vlad III
Vlad III
Nero acts as a good support for Vlad by improving his weakness of low NP acquisition and provides him with HP recovery and defense up. Vlad in return can also support Nero with critical stars by gaining critical stars through his NP.

Best CEs

CEExplanation
Formal Craft
Formal Craft
Fits well with Nero’s skillset by further increasing her NP acquisition rate while also boost her NP damage due to it being an Arts type.
Black Holy Grail
Black Holy Grail[JP]
As Nero can spam her NP quite efficiently due to her high NP gain, this CE can be a good choice for her as the increase in NP damage is significant and the HP lost can be recovered by using her own skill.
Another Ending
Another Ending[JP]
If you have a party member that can supply Nero with the critical stars that she needs, consider equipping this CE to focus more on a critical build while providing a slight boost in Arts card performance.
