Rabbit's Reviews Astolfo Saber
NA Release Date: 11/2021
Introduction

The long-awaited Saber Astolfo arrives as this year’s Christmas Servant. Hooray? As an ST Quick Saber, he faces strong competition from Okita, Diarmuid, and Fran, and unfortunately he’s, uh, not the best. He can potentially hit very high damage numbers in extremely specific high-end comps, but that’s true of plenty of SSRs, and he has a number of key weaknesses that will drag him down in most realistic situations.

Conclusion

Astolfo has a lot of potential. His skills are pretty strong, and his NP is excellent. Unfortunately, his bases are so bad that the majority of that potential goes down the drain, and his “good” skillset would be much more at home on a Buster Servant than on a Quick one. His kit has the feel of a Servant from several years ago, and even among ST Quick Sabers he loses pretty soundly to all of his competition.
