The Modern Magus Magazine
We find ourselves in a time of gift giving and celebration, my dear readers. A time to rejoice, and love your fellow man, woman, or whatever lies in between.
Of course, I mean the lotto event. It’s November, for pete’s sake - We need to be fighting back Padoru every time it creeps upon us in Autumn, not welcome it with open arms.
But alongside our wondrous mix of Unlimited Farming Works and multiple high-difficulty quests, we have a new Servant to examine.
Breit- uh, Britomart. Bad slip of the tongue there.
It seems that two things remain constant in FGO - Nasu slipping in mecha wherever they can possible manage it, and female Servants with sex appeal cropping up wherever humanly possible. So why not fit two in one?
…and she’s also not actually Britomart, but Britomart’s daughter. Honestly half her profile reads like something I could’ve sworn I’ve read in a Light Novel before.
|Base Atk||1,832||Base HP||2,070|

So far as base stats go, Britomart is pretty typical, but thankfully offensively-oriented. With the 5th best Attack and tied 4th worst HP of her class and rarity, Britomart has a pretty respectable balance of offense and defense (as Lancers typically are both offensively strong and durable), even if she’s ultimately flexed on by her Fairy Knight senpai in Melusine.
But hey, losing to Melusine in terms of power is something every Servant other than the girl herself has in common - she’s basically the best offensive Servant in the game.
While Britomart does well for base stats, her passives aren’t anywhere near as impressive, with only high-ranking Magic Resistance to her name. The extra resistance to debuffs helps, of course, but it’s not anywhere near as much as some Servants get in their passive lineup.
So how is Britomart overall? On the one hand, she’s a knight among knights, a fae little fickle thing, and her armor, should you (correctly) make her wear it, is badass:
However, she’s also a fraud, pursuing the glory of her own parents, and honestly her character design makes her look like an SAO character unaware of the tentacle monster lurking behind her:
I feel we’ve had a fair few of these lately, but Britomart is yet another SSR farmer that’s more than competent, but doesn’t manage to breach the realm of the universal farmer gods outside of particularly high-cost setups. While that means she isn’t breaking the meta, it doesn’t mean she isn’t good to have around.
Her utility tools are very handy to have around, particularly when she’s introduced in an event with countless difficult quests to throw her at. Invincible Pierce and Debuff Immunity are tools that consistently pull their weight, and when coupled with her solid defensive tools and Critical damage output, Britomart makes for a respectable staple Lancer to add to your collection, especially if you have the Quick support lineup to push her to her limits.
Rath™ Seal of Approval.
Well, I won’t complain about a 1-Servant event, all things considered. Besides, it’s simply the prologue to the main event to close out the year and occupy my Winter holidays, the mass Servant introduction as part of the Seventh Los-
Eh? You’re saying we’re getting no more new Servants for the rest of the year? Seriously? Because they want to avoid spoilers for LB7?
Well tickle me both excited for the story and scared for how stacked the New Year's season will be.
I guess I’ll be seeing all of you…next…year? It feels utterly bizarre saying that at the start of November.
