Rabbit's Reviews Kriemhild
NA Release Date: 06/2024

So, Kriemhild is arguably the best ST unit in the game. Not the best ST SR—the best ST period, including SSRs. In optimal setups and with equal levels of investment, she outdamages Vlad, which is absolutely ridiculous. Vlad is a little easier to use, and all of Galatea’s use cases relative to Vlad apply here as well, but… they’re both SSRs, and Kriem is an SR. And she has her own advantages outside of damage, too! Kriem is only the second ST Berserker to have a 50% battery, and she has a targeted taunt effect tied to it for extra utility.

And did I mention she’s in contention for being the best ST unit in the game, as an SR? I kinda can’t believe Lasengle did this.

As I said at the top of the review, Kriem is now arguably the best ST unit in the game. Vlad is more consistent—at least while he’s looping—and Galatea has some nice utility Kriem doesn’t get, but she’s absolutely in contention with both of them and has some notable advantages. Buster Servants will sometimes be better depending on health bar distributions, too, but Kriem’s damage output is high enough that she can win out in some cases even with crits factored in. She really is just that strong.

And she’s an SR! And not even a limited SR, at that, meaning next time we get a free SR ticket, she’ll likely be an option. She’s powerful enough that I honestly wonder if there’s a substantial meta shift in the pipeline: an interlude for Galatea, or a new Quick support that rockets MHXA ahead, or something similar. It’s a little weird for an SR to more-or-less match a pair of best-in-class SSRs.

But hey, we take those. Strong Servants are always fun.
