Scoring Method Details

5 Star Servants

Tier B+

Kyokutei Bakin is an AoE Arts Rider introduced during the Nanmei Yumihari Eight Dog Chronicles event. Her NP has both anti-Demonic and anti-Evil niches, and also generates a small number of Stars. Her skill kit contains a mix of both supportive and self offensive buffs. She notably has a self 30% NP charge skill that also gives 10% charge to all allies and generates a small number of Stars. She also has a self Arts buff that can buff all allies' ATK a small amount every time she uses an Arts Card. Her most impressive skill is a targetable buff that provides a total of 8 beneficial effects, including the three Card color buffs, Crit/NP damage, healing, Evade, and Debuff Immunity. Taken together, she is an effective mix of offense and support, and for Masters in need of a Rider Arts farmer, she fills the role well.

Kyokutei Bakin: x -> B+ (Avg Score: 8.22) - [NorseFTX - B+][WhiteRabbit - B][Rathilal - B+]

Tier B

Minamoto no Tametomo is an AoE Buster Archer with an anti-Lawful alignment niche. His NP helpfully grants both the Ignore Invincibility and Ignore DEF effects to himself before dealing damage, ensuring his damage will be unmitigated in most cases. If the battlefield is near water, he also gains an extra Buster buff before his NP deals damage. In his skill kit, his Guts skill also comes with up to 30% NP Gauge, making him capable of doing Buster Loop setups with Koyanskaya/Oberon. He also has a sizable Buster Buff and Crit Damage buff for himself, the ability to apply Sure Hit across 5 turns, up to 10% NP Gauge per turn, and a ramping NP Damage buff that can stack each turn up to 5 times, with each stack being good for 1 NP use. In practice, since his NP applies the Ignore Invincibility effect, his Sure Hit skill is only applicable to Card hits on turns where he does not use his NP, but has good uptime. Overall, Tametomo is a strong addition to the Archer roster, being a solid AoE Buster looping option if Masters lack other Servants capable of filling the role.

Minamoto no Tametomo: x -> B (Avg Score: 7.89) - [NorseFTX - B+][WhiteRabbit - C+][Rathilal - B]

Tier List Movements

5 Star Servants

Tier B -> B+

Sherlock Holmes gets a handy 50% NP charge with his latest Rank Up during the second half of Lostbelt 6.5 Traum. This enables Holmes to provide Ignore Invincibility/DEF and DEF down/Crit damage buff utility to the party on demand with much more ease, making it a great quality of life upgrade for him. Since his NP isn't damaging and many effects are niche, and even when applicable requires Card use / other Servants to take advantage of, his overall gameplay doesn't change substantially.

Sherlock Holmes: B -> B+ (Avg Score: 8.25) - [NorseFTX - B][WhiteRabbit - A][Meliran - B][Rathilal - B]

Tier A -> A

The Moonsault Operation event gives Meltryllis a Rank Up that provides her Crime Ballet skill up to 30% NP Gauge charge for her. This is a nice upgrade that gives Meltryllis easier access to her NP with a 50% charge CE and Append Skill 2 maxed. Although the upgrade is powerful, it was agreed it is not quite enough to push her up when she is already at A tier.

Meltryllis: A -> A (Avg Score: 9) - [NorseFTX - A][WhiteRabbit - A][Meliran - A][Rathilal - A]

Tier C+ -> B

Kingprotea's latest upgrade gives her Growth stacks an additional 10% NP damage buff for each stack, up to a maximum of 100%. This makes her ramping damage ceiling much higher, although this still requires waiting up to 10 turns for the maximum effect, so it can be difficult to take full advantage of this upgrade in practice, but still makes for a helpful boost to her damage.

Kingprotea: C+ -> B (Avg Score: 7.67) - [NorseFTX - C+][WhiteRabbit - B][Meliran - C+][Rathilal - B]

Tier B+ -> B

BB's Summer version is the last to receive an upgrade during the Moonsault Operation event. She gets a skill upgrade that grants her three turns of an ATK buff and the ability to generate 20 Stars when using her Extra Attack. This improves her overall damage while also allowing her to better take advantage of the self modification skill's Star Gather and Crit Damage buffs. However, it was generally agreed that it's not quite enough to push her up a tier. In fact, some believe that she may have been rated too highly in prior assessments due to her incompatibility with the Koyanskaya x2 + Oberon setups. However, it should be noted she can still loop with two Koyanskayas and an MLB Kaleidoscope / Atlas Academy Uniform, but sacrifices CE flexibility.

BB (Summer): B+ -> B (Avg Score: 8.08) - [NorseFTX - B+][WhiteRabbit - C+][Meliran - B+][Rathilal - B+]

4 Star Servants

Tier C+ -> B+

The latest Traum chapter Rank Up for Siegfried gives him a much coveted 30% NP Gauge charge skill, along with up to 30% ATK for three turns. This allows him to now loop with double Koyanskaya and Oberon, making him a viable option for easier Buster farming. He also now makes for an excellent choice against any Dragon trait Lancer waves. This upgrade was agreed to be worth a tier bump.

Siegfried: C+ -> B+ (Avg Score: 8.42) - [NorseFTX - B+][WhiteRabbit - B+][Meliran - A-][Rathilal - B+]

Tier C+ -> B

Passionlip also receives an upgrade with the latest Moonsault Operation event, giving her a 3-turn Buster buff and 20% NP charge. Although the NP charge levels aren't high enough to enable her to do 3-turn looping with the current Buster Supports, it is still a helpful upgrade that both improves her damage output and ease of access to her NP.

Passionlip: C+ -> B (Avg Score: 7.78) - [NorseFTX - B][Meliran - C+][Rathilal - B]

Tier B+ -> B+

Welfare Servant BB gets an upgrade to her third skill with the Moonsault Operation event. She gains a self Arts buff for three turns, along with a 3-turn buff that can grant all allies 10% NP Gauge if she gets an Extra Attack off. Her Arts buff is a helpful buff to her damage and Card performance. The second effect, although great on paper, in many situations where she'd be used, Masters may opt for Arts chains or would need to rely on Card luck to take advantage of the 10% NP charge. Overall, her performance is mostly the same as before.

BB: B+ -> B+ (Avg Score: 8.25) - [NorseFTX - B+][WhiteRabbit - B+][Meliran - B][Rathilal - B+]

Tier C+ -> C+

The Avenger of Shinjuku gets a Rank Up Quest during the Nanmei Yumihari event, where his second skill's ATK buff duration is increased to three turns. Additionally, he can now deal up to 30% extra Special ATK damage to Human attribute enemies, which are pretty common. These upgrades help improve his overall performance, although overall it was agreed the changes aren't quite enough to bring him up a tier.

Avenger of Shinjuku: C+ -> C+ (Avg Score: 7.5) - [NorseFTX - C+][WhiteRabbit - B][Meliran - C+][Rathilal - C+]

1-3 Star Servants

Tier B -> B+

Okada Izo also receives an upgrade during Nanmei Yumihari, with his upgrading his NP. Along with the standard single target Arts NP buff of +300% damage across the board, Okada now deals supereffective damage against Human attribute enemies, which are somewhat common across enemies. This upgrade makes him an excellent choice to bring against Human attribute bosses given he already has a separate Humanoid trait damage multiplier.

Okada Izo: B -> B+ (Avg Score: 8.33) - [NorseFTX - B+][WhiteRabbit - B+][Meliran - B+][Rathilal - B+]
