Rabbit's Reviews Hogen
NA Release Date: 01/2023
Introduction

Keeping with the past year’s trend of excellent Quick Welfares, Hogen is our first AoE Quick welfare who’s also an unqualified looper. It’s a bit tight, and she needs some combination of overkill, starting NP, and a plug support, but she can still reasonably farm 3-enemy nodes, especially if the enemies are Riders. This is less notable in the Castoria era than it would have been before Castoria’s release, as plenty of Arts Servants can do the same thing easier and with higher damage values, but it’s still notable and good that we now have a welfare who can loop farm with Skadi.

Conclusion

Hogen may not be a particularly amazing Servant in a vacuum, but the fact that she’s a free Servant with good damage who can loop farm makes her a really excellent welfare. Her actual value is largely dependent on whether you have alternatives, but at the very least she ensures all players will have a Quick Servant who can loop with Skadi, and that’s not nothing.
