Rabbit's Reviews Santa Martha
NA Release Date: 12/2023
Introduction

2021 continues to be a good year for welfares. Unlike our other welfares this year, Martha is a full support, and she packs a set of truly impressive offensive buffs. For perspective, Martha’s damage push capabilities are competitive with—and conditionally better than—even the various SSR supports. She pays for this in other ways, of course—limited party batteries, an awkward NP type, and limited defensive utility—but she still has a potential context in which she is the best option, that being in cases where you just need as much damage as possible. If you think of Servants as having a certain “budget” of power available, going all-in on one particular thing leaves them more likely to have a place where they stand out. Martha does this with damage buffs and is definitely better off for doing so.

Conclusion

Martha’s in-niche damage ampage is among the best in the game, even when top-tier supports are considered. She also helps with crits and brings some healing, which means she has a little bit of value even outside of her damage buffs. She’s more-or-less comparable to Lanling—largely inferior out of her niche, but pretty solidly better in-niche. Lanling is himself a great SR support, so getting effectively another Lanling for free is really excellent. For new players, she’s a great go-to support for whomever you want to run as a DPS, and for older players, she’s a situationally powerful damage buffer who can be handy for occasional challenge fights. There’s not much more you can ask from a free support.
