Rating8.0/10

Lancelot Saber class is quite similar in terms of skillset with his Berserker counterpart which focuses on generating critical stars and translate them into heavy damage. However, the Saber Lancelot does have a bit of advantage in building up his NP gauge allowing him to use his NP much faster.

Pros

  • Arts focused Saber. Even though Lancelot only has two Arts command cards in his deck, his NP which is also an Arts type can increase his Arts card performance by 30% for a turn which would boost his damage and refund quite a lot of his NP if you manage to pull off an Arts Brave Chain of NPAA. It is also easy for Lancelot to charge up his NP gauge with his first skill Knight of the Lake that provides fixed amount of NP charge at all skill level.
  • Easy to accumulate critical stars. Lancelot can easily acquire critical stars with both his first and third skill and absorbs them all to himself with his Eternal Arms Mastership skill. Besides that, he can also hits up to four times with his Buster card, allowing him to easily generate critical stars with a first slotted Quick card or a Brave Chain as his Extra card has five hits.

Cons

  • No defensive skill. One of the noticeable things within Lancelot’s skillset is his lack of any sort of defensive skill that can protect himself such as evasion or invincibility. Therefore, it is recommended that you pair him with someone who can protect him while he annihilates the enemies with his critical damage.

Strategies & Tips

Lancelot is Saber class servant that is mainly configured for stars and critical damage as he can gain quite a lot of stars with his skillsets up to the point where it is comparable to an Assassin class. Although he does fall a bit in terms of NP efficiency but it isn’t that bad at all considering that he can hit criticals quite often.

Noble Phantasm

Lancelot’s Noble Phantasm, Arondight Overload is a single target NP that deals moderate damage but has the additional effect of increasing his Arts card performance for a turn. Besides that, the enemy hit by the NP will also received a debuff of taking increased damage for five turns. Even though the increase in damage taken is fixed by a certain value e.g. 1000 at Level 1 but it does stacked up for quite a bit especially if you have party members that deal multiple hits per command card.

Best CEs

CEExplanation
Formal Craft

As the increase in Arts cards performance enhances the damage of his NP while allowing Lancelot to build up his NP gauge much faster, it is a perfect CE to be equipped to him.
Another Ending

Another CE that fits Lancelot’s kit by sacrificing a little bit of his Arts cards performance for extra critical damage.
Piece of Year 2030
Piece of Year 2030
If you want to increase his critical stars generation then this CE is a good choice as the passively generated critical stars can be of some use even if your skills are on cooldown.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

You will focus on raising Lancelot’s third skill first as 15 critical stars per turn for three turns consecutively is a very large amount before even attacking. After that, upgrade the first skill for more critical stars and leave the second skill for the last as 3000% increase in star absorption rate at Level 1 is already sufficient.

Lancelot’s command cards performance is pretty average with kind of a lower NP efficiency but due his high chance of hitting a critical it is still pretty easy for him to build up his NP gauge nonetheless.
