Rating8/10

[ JP ]

Like most AoE Servants, Kiyohime’s role is that of a wave-clearer. As a Berserker she does this quite well, but there’s more to her than just damage, which is what makes her worth using. Her NP gain among the Berserkers stands out as one of the best, and her 2nd skill allows her to deal more damage to a single target. All in all, Kiyohime’s kit is pretty similar to Darius and Eric’s, but hers is arguably the best among the three.

[ NA ]

Kiyohime still hasn’t received her Skill upgrade at NA yet, which means her NP does far less damage than it does on JP. Her NP gain is still pretty good however, so she’s still pretty worth using.

Pros

  • Great NP damage that has chance to stun
  • DEF up and high HP pool can increase her survivability
  • Mad Enhancement EX and Buster up increases her Buster damage very well
  • Has the highest base NP gain rate among the 1-3* Berserkers

Cons

  • Skill 2’s Demerit can be very bothersome for her
  • Base ATK is low, which means her damage outside of her NP braves is quite low as well

Strategies & Tips

As both a Berserker and a damage dealer, Kiyohime would rely on support to sustain her and boost her damage. Thankfully, most of the available supports ingame can both improve her damage and survivability, so it’s not a big problem. She can also be paired with a taunter like most Berserkers, but her Stalking skill’s demerit can be very crippling against a taunter.
Kiyohime’s NP gain is solid enough in that she can charge reliably through her chains, so one can also rest easy on that aspect when using her.

Noble Phantasm

Kiyohime’s NP deals good damage when buffed by her own buffs. She deals roughly the same amount as Darius, ranking as the 3rd or 4th strongest AoE Berserker NP ingame. While the stun chance is mostly neglectable, it offers decent utility in that it provides a chance to give her a turn of protection from attacks.

Best Servants to Work with

ServantExplanation
Zhuge Liang
Zhuge Liang
Waver’s DEF up can stack up with Kiyohime’s Morph, and has a damage cut included, which can prove to be very useful in countering the demerit in Kiyohime’s Stalking skill. His ATK up and DEF down also stack up for an incredible amount, giving Kiyohime a significant boost in damage.
Hans Christian Andersen
Hans Christian Andersen
Hans is able to stack up his DEF and ATK buffs for Kiyohime’s survival and damage. He’s also able to heal her and provide Arts cards to be used as the first card in a chain, to boost Kiyohime’s NP gain.
Saint George
Saint George
George offers a 3-turn taunt to cover for Kiyohime. George has the highest scaling DEF buffing among the available 3 turn taunters ingame, and thus would be affected the least by Kiyohime’s Stalking demerit. His performance overall is very stable, and can be very reliable in protecting her.
Le Chavelier d’Eon
Le Chavelier d’Eon
D’eon is able to taunt for 3-turns, which lets her take damage to cover for Kiyohime. While it’s rather dangerous to deploy them together due to d’Eon’s lack of DEF buffs, she also possesses a dodge skill, which can let her tank NPs without relying on DEF stacking, thus nullifying the effect of the demerit for some time.
Merlin
Merlin
[ JP ]
Merlin is able to buff Kiyohime’s Buster and ATK, which offers her a great boost in overall damage. He can also heal her very well, allowing for a very good amount of sustain. He can also charge her NP gauge passively, which, when combined by her naturally fast gain, would let her fire off her NP at a good rate.

Best CEs

Increase in NP damage

Since Kiyohime already has a Buster up and a DEF down, an NP damage up CE would be best, as it multiplies with her own buffs and debuffs. She can charge her NP gauge decently as well, so if one supports her, one would be able to exploit her boost in NP damage with multiple uses.

Increase in Buster Performance

While another Buster up would simply add up to her own buff, such a CE is also useful to boost Kiyohime’s normal damage, since it is still limited by her low ATK.

Skills

Upgrade Priority

Skill Priority: 3 / 1 / 2

  • Morph C / Cooldown: 7-5

    Increase own DEF (3 turns)

    While the percentage isn’t nearly enough to boost Kiyohime’s survival to amazing extents, it’s fairly useful due to the fact that one can use it to stack with DEF buffs from external buffs, or supports. On it’s own it barely makes her survivable, but with a proper support, it can be very crucial when its stacked.
  • Stalking B / Cooldown: 7-5

    Decrease DEF (3 turns)
    Increase target’s ATK (3 turns) (Demerit)

    A double-edged sword that boosts Kiyohime’s damage against a target in exchange for an indirect loss of defense. It’s quite useful in that it significantly improves Kiyohime’s NP damage and Buster brave damage, but it’s also a rather dangerous skill to use as it can affect Kiyohime’s fragility even further. Adding to that, when pairing her with taunters, it would also affect their performance.
  • Flame Colored Kiss A / Cooldown: 7-5 [Strengthening Upgrade]

    Remove Debuffs
    Increase in Buster Performance (3 turn)

    Kiyohime’s most important skill. This allows for her to hit hard despite her low ATK stats, and the debuff removal is useful in taking out any ATK downs or Buster down on her, so that she’s able to fire off her NP without worries.

A QABBB deck is usually a Berserker’s best deck, and the same stands for Kiyohime. This deck lets her hit hard despite having low ATK stats, which boosts her value very well. Since her NP gain is extraordinary anyway, the deck doesn’t limit her as much as it does other Berserkers, making it the perfect deck to counter her innate weaknesses.
