Rabbit's Reviews Salome
NA Release Date: 08/2021
Introduction

The last of the fancy new bronzes is Salome, who’s most notable for being only the second Berserker with an offensive Arts NP. She’s neither particularly bulky nor particularly good at NP spam, which makes her a bit of an odd duck as Arts servants go, but if nothing else she nearly matches the NP damage on an NP1 Vlad. She’s sort of an anti-Charlotte in that she wouldn’t be especially valuable in her own right, but her role is so unique that (until we get more Arts ‘Zerkers) she actually does have a surprising level of potential value… for now.

Conclusion

I went into this review expecting to rip Salome because of her third skill (among other things), but even as a two-skill Servants her kit is remarkably complete. She’s not the best servant out there, but she’s entirely workable as a hole-filler for budget Arts setups, she fills a role that was mostly-nonexistent before, and she has clear use cases. She’s not the most exciting of the new bronzes, but she’s a valuable addition to the game regardless.
