Rabbit's Reviews Jiang Ziya
NA Release Date: 12/2023

Tunguska brings with it a pair of non-limited Riders. The SSR, Jiang Ziya, is pretty good as non-limited Servants go. He’s a decently strong AoE Quick unit, especially in niche, and he brings some nice supportive utility as well. There are situations in which his supportive value can be his primary selling point—if you specifically need AoE buffs for Quick units, he’s a great option, and for players without a deep roster of supports he’s a solid pull—but for the most part, his value is as a damage-dealer. Jiang Ziya hits ST-level damage thresholds against Divine enemies, which is notable on the rare occasion where you’re fighting multiple Divines at once. As a whole, Jiang Ziya does a lot of things well but nothing spectacularly. He’s a great early Servant for new players building out their rosters, but he doesn’t have a ton of value for players with more established boxes due to his lack of specialization.

Jiang Ziya does a lot of things well. He has great anti-Divine damage, he’s a solid looper when cards are allowed, and he brings a fair bit of supportive value. Unfortunately, not going all-in on any of these things means his power ceiling is lower than it might otherwise be. He’s the kind of Servant who can always find ways to contribute but will usually be outclassed by a specialist. I’d say he’s a welcome spook but probably not a Servant to actively target unless you’re very new.
