Rabbit's Reviews Cagliostro
NA Release Date: 03/2026

Nearly three years into the class’s existence, we get our first AoE Arts Pretender! Pretenders have historically had very strong kits, to offset the fact that (like Alter Egos) they’re essentially half-Berserkers with lower stats. Cagliostro is no exception to this trend, and by SR standards his skillset especially is very strong. Without maximum investment, he won’t be able to handle top-end content, but he’s a flexible and easy-to-use Servant who can cover a lot of needs. He’s particularly good for players with less-developed boxes—while he’s not a proper generalist, and he’s not specialized enough to handle 90++ nodes for any one class, he should be more than sufficient for knight-focused CQs or for farming knight nodes below the 90++ level. Solid standing for an SR.

As with most good SRs, Cagliostro is something of a mixed bag. He has some genuinely very powerful tools, with the standout piece being his 50% battery. In exchange, he has some annoying drawbacks, and his damage isn’t really sufficient for top-end content. He’s very good for an SR, but “for an SR” is doing a lot of heavy-lifting there. If you don’t have strong SSR alternatives, he can put in a lot of good work, but if you do have alternatives, he likely won’t do much for you.
