Rating7.5/10

Saint Martha is a Rider class servant that has a command cards layout identical to that of a Caster class which kind of makes her as a semi-support with skillsets focusing on debuff removal and HP recovery while still being able to deal quite a bit of damage herself due to high NP efficiency.

Pros

  • Excellent support. Martha can support her party through her Miracle skill to remove debuffs from them and recovers their HP with quite a short cooldown of six turns at max level. Besides that, she also helps to increase the party’s damage output by reducing the target’s defense with her Vow of the Saintess skill and NP.
  • Secondary attacker for the party. Even though Martha’s main role is a support, she possesses three Arts cards in her command cards layout, allowing her to charge up her NP gauge quite easily to spam her NP.

Cons

High star absorption without much damage output. Usually high star absorption is a good thing to have but in the case of Martha, she doesn’t have much offensive capability herself and she is going to steal the critical stars that was meant for another attacker. Therefore, refrain from using her in a critical focused party so that she does not lower down the party’s damage output.

Strategies & Tips

Martha’s role in a party is a secondary attacker and support as she can heal, removes debuff and provides defense reduction to increase the offensive and defensive ability of the party. With her three Arts cards in her command cards layout, she can build up her NP gauge pretty fast allowing her to take up the role of secondary attacker by unleashing her NP multiple times.

Noble Phantasm

Martha’s Noble Phantasm, Tarasque deals AOE damage to all enemies while reducing their defense by 20% at Level 1 for three turns. Even though the damage dealt isn’t that high but due to Martha’s NP efficiency she can use it quite frequently and the damage will stacked up over time together with the defense reduction.

Best Servants to Work with

ServantExplanation
Vlad III
Vlad III
Vlad’s NP can generate critical stars which can be easily absorbed by Martha due to her high star absorption. Martha also enables Vlad to charge up his NP much faster as it is easy to align three Arts cards together.
Heracles
Heracles
As Martha lacks quite a bit of firepower on her own, a single target focus servant that deals high damage such as Heracles is preferred as party member to compensate for the damage loss.
Tamamo no Mae
Tamamo no Mae
Tamamo can support Martha by increasing her Arts cards performance and heals her after Interlude with her Fox’s Wedding skill. She can also support Martha with her NP that heals the whole party and reduces skills’ cooldown by one turn.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

Martha’s skill levelling is split between the second and third skill, depending on whether you prefer more HP recovery or more defense reduction to the enemy. We saved the first skill for last as it only provides debuff resistance and HP recovery to herself.

Martha is kind of like a Caster in Rider form due to having three Arts cards in her command cards layout, making it easier for her to charge up her NP gauge while having low star generation rate.

This is so late as to be near useless, but the intermediate tea set collection does in fact drop ...
They add more items to the events as they become drops in the singularities. Gears and pages will...
It worked very well! Thanks :)
