What is new?
The third fight begins, and the cute puppy is no longer so cute. He changed class to Avenger and has gained a very powerful Evasion passive.
Each turn, Avenger of Shinjuku buffs himself with Evasion for 1 hit.
On Break, Avenger of Shinjuku will cleanse himself of debuffs.
Avenger of Shinjuku’s main problem is his new Avenger class, which at the time of Shinjuku’s release there is no class that both takes reduced damage and deals bonus damage against it.
The combination of Monstrous Strength and Fallen Demon makes his normal attacks very dangerous and unpredictable, especially as his higher level and Avenger class has increased his base damage output. Do not underestimate his non-NP turns. A Taunter who can take his normal attacks for other teammates is a good investment.
At the start of every turn, Avenger of Shinjuku will gain an Evade buff that lasts for 1 hit. Craft Essences or Skills with Sure Hit / Ignore Invincibility will penetrate this and consume the effect at the same time.
Upon Break, Avenger of Shinjuku will cleanse all debuffs on himself. Avoid using Stun or other disabling debuffs on the same turn that his bar breaks.
Avenger of Shinjuku’s Noble Phantasm will grant a 1 turn buff that ignores Evasion prior to dealing damage. However, Invincibility still works!
While Evade does not work against Avenger of Shinjuku when his Noble Phantasm is up, it is still extremely useful during his other turns as his normal attacks can deal a significant amount of damage.
- His Noble Phantasm has a slight chance to inflict Instant Death even if it is blocked (through Invincibility). Having a strong backline can be quite crucial in case of an unlucky RNG streak. Guts status is also another way to further improve party’s survival rate against Avenger of Shinjuku.
The safest strategy is to play around two powerful Supports providing protection, sustain and offensive buffs to one main DPS. Due to his Break Bars, Evasion and the high amount of HP that Avenger of Shinjuku possesses, Masters should pick Damage Dealers that can deal strong damage over multiple turns instead of concentrating damage into one or two turns.
Berserker is the only class that can deal bonus damage against Avenger of Shinjuku at the time of release of the chapter. However, as they also take extra damage from him, survivability becomes a large issue.
If Masters choose to field Berserkers, be sure to pick those that either can burst extremely hard to finish the battle as quickly as possible, or ones that have better survivability to ensure they stay on the battlefield. Alternatively, bring taunt Servants to redirect the Avenger’s offense.
Avenger of Shinjuku is classified as a Male Servant, so Anti-Male DPS is still very powerful against him, especially those that synergize well with tankier setups. Euryale and Orion are highly effective for this.
Servants with skills or Noble Phantasms with effective damage against his other traits: Heaven or Earth, Humanoid, Beast and Weak to Enuma Elish can also be considered, but considering most Servants that target these traits are either not particularly tanky or deal less single target damage, it is recommended to only use them with a powerful support cast that can make them shine.
Having a Servant who can last several turns against Avenger of Shinjuku in a backline, such as Heracles with his Bond Craft Essence, Nero Claudius, Cu Chulainn (Lancer) or Cu Chulainn (Berserker) is a good way to mitigate risk.
Mash, the main Caster supports and Taunt Servants are very effective if survival is an issue. Ruler Servants are naturally extremely discouraged.
