Rabbit's Reviews Iyo
NA Release Date: 09/2024

We’ve gotten a bunch of Arts loopers as welfares in the past year, and Iyo is probably the best of the bunch. She really has all the pieces: a good neutral class, Fionn-clone-type loop specs, a 30% battery, persistent steroids in all three brackets, damage ramp, et cetera. It’s hard to envision a better AoE SR, let alone a better welfare—any stronger than Iyo and you’re solidly in the realm of SSR-esque power budgets. Maybe that’s the direction we’re heading—Kriem is already there, for ST—but at least for now, Iyo is about as good as it gets at the SR level.

Unless our power expectations for SRs are going to be revamped at some point in the near future, it seems pretty unlikely that we’ll see a better AoE welfare than Iyo. She’s a loop-enabled AoE Arts Servant with good damage and ramp in a neutral class. Really excellent unit here, even if the ways she’s excellent are relatively standard. I do think it’s a little weird to get a fourth welfare of this type in the course of a year—especially when all four are pretty similar, and Iyo is cleanly better than the other three—but I guess that’s just how Servant balance is going in FGO land these days.
