Overview

“An honorable knight, occasionally referred to as an unadulterated fool.”

Most of the time, if a person were to leave home and see their mother faint as they left, they would stop to check up on them. Not Percival, the fool who had to go out and slay his enemies as an AoE Arts Damage Dealer! No, not even the malicious Sir Kay could stop him from applying the beatdown!

In order to prove himself to the Fisher King, Percival has prided himself on becoming a powerful Arts Looper. Through the power of Protection of the Holy Grail A he has learned how to boost his own refund and cast multiple Noble Phantasms in a row which no enemy can avoid thanks to its Ignore Invincibility effect! And, true to the chivalry he learned under Gornemant, he will stand tall as a bastion for the team with Guardian Knight (Sacred Lance) B+ to serve as a meat shield for his allies. Of course, he’s not going to be foolhardy, having the Vermillion Armor of the Light of Salvation, giving him solid durability!

However extensive his deeds, aspects of Percival’s kit make him appear the fool. While Light of Salvation may protect him when coupled with Guardian Knight (Sacred Lance), the latter skill will lead to two turns of him taking all the hits unprotected. He also falls short in one of  his primary roles, where in looping situations, most of his skills wind up being irrelevant. He’s also on the weaker side of things thanks to low attack and no passive bonuses.

Percival may not have succeeded in asking the Fisher King about the Lance and the Grail, and failed to heal him, but he will still serve as a steady damage dealing tank for all who call upon him to serve. Yes, even if his FGO story is totally butchered from the original by Cretien de Troyes!

Strengths

AoE Arts Looping

Like most Servants with two Castorias in a setup, Percival is capable of receiving a significant amount of refund from his Noble Phantasm against three-enemy waves. He can easily dish out damage with a Black Grail in hand and have enough in refund to continue to the next turn. He has great refund, even against Berserkers, refunding 80% each turn against a wave of 3. With his own charge and a mystic code boost to NP gain or arts, he can loop effectively against any 3-3-x node. To add to this as a benefit, his Noble Phantasm has the Ignore Invincibility effect which lasts the entire turn, making him reliable in practically all nodes to do damage.

Great Support

Percival’s invincibility is targetable and provides a bit of a heal, giving him the ability to protect another character at will. If that isn’t enough, he will also take the hits for them, having a three-turn target focus on his second skill. Then, any damage they’ve sustained can be healed through his Noble Phantasm.

Durable

Of course, if Percival applies his skills to himself, he becomes an incredibly durable Servant. He’s capable of negating a full turn of damage with the combination of target focus and invincibility, and has a fairly high HP pool to take the hits. With his Magic Resistance B++ passive, he’s also fairly resistant against Debuffs, making him hard to get rid of for the enemies.

Weaknesses

Continued Target Focus

Target focus and invincibility can be a powerful combination, but Percival only gets 1 turn of invincibility compared to 3 turns of target focus. If he’s not careful, this can whittle down his HP pool in a hurry, even if facing his Class advantage.

Low NP Gain

Percival is the rare situation where an Arts Card times the number of Arts Hits is less than 2%. He is not going to refund his gauge outside of his Noble Phantasm and his skills easily. However, if he does not actually kill every enemy he comes across, his second skill provides a significant boost to his defensive NP gain, and may allow him to refill a significant part of his gauge every turn if the enemy has a high hit count.

Low Damage

Percival does not have a particularly high Attack stat, and does not have many ways of boosting it up. He only has one skill to boost his Arts and Noble Phantasm damage and the overcharge on his Noble Phantasm itself, leading to fairly poor damage overall compared to other options. The lack of a passive boost to his damage hurts even more.

When using Percival for looping, most Masters will want to avoid using Protection of the Holy Grail on the first turn. Against Berserker waves he will refund 80% without it, and use it on his second turn to fill in the remainder and boost his refund for the second wave. Guardian Knight and Light of Salvation tend to be used together, targeting Percival, allowing him to effectively negate an enemy’s damage for a turn by both taking all hits and negating them with invincibility.

  • Protection of the Holy Grail A is Percival’s primary steroid, giving boosts to both NP Damage and Arts effectiveness. It also is crucial for looping thanks to the Arts boost as well as an extra 20% charge. Masters are going to want to use this turn two to enable looping capacity, or turn one if not looping. This skill should be the first to raise, but is actually optional to max as a Tropical Summer mystic code can provide the missing charge. That said, it is far easier to loop and opens up more mystic code options if it is maxed.
  • Guardian Knight (Sacred Lance) gives Percival a target focus for three turns, along with a significant boost to his received damage NP gain. So long as there are enemies still alive after a wave and capable of attacking, this can result in substantial increases to NP gauge, with as little as a 3-hit enemy providing 54% of a bar in a turn. Against some Single Target enemy Servants, this could actually refill an entire gauge. Its leveling provides extra NP gain, so Masters planning to use him for these purposes could benefit from maxing the skill, but those just planning to use it for meatshield purposes can ignore it. This should be leveled second. 
  • Light of Salvation B is Percival’s primary defense mechanism, giving Invincibility and HP boosts. Many Masters will use this on Percival himself as a protection for the first turn of his second skill. It can also be used to protect another ally if Percival is less important than them. As leveling it only provides more HP recovery, and the HP recovery is not too large, Masters may want to leave this skill alone. Level it last.

Craft Essence Recommendation

As with all Arts loopers, Percival is best used with an NP Damage Up CE to boost his general damage against enemy waves. His innate refund also makes him a good potential holder for Event CEs if he has the damage to clear the waves. If using him for defensive or support purposes, he should aim to use a Healing Power Up CE to recharge most of the lost health from each turn.

  • The Black Grail: Percival has relatively low damage for his class and rarity, and boosting it can enable him to clear waves he’d otherwise be unable to. As he does not need starting NP gauge to loop, he can take advantage of its full benefit. In addition, as he has a low attack stat, this will add a significant percentage increase with its Attack stat bonuses. 
  • Event CEs: Percival has amazing refund, capable of refunding off of even Berserkers, so if he does not need the damage he can easily hold an event CE or a bond up CE.
  • Gentle Affection / Maid in Halloween / Street Choco-Maid / Sakura’s Special Bento: Percival has a significant heal on his Noble Phantasm and a less significant one on his third skill, so boosting these can negate the damage received from his second skill. Masters will need to decide if Percival or another Servant will receive more damage ahead of time, as some CEs only will boost the healing Percival receives, while others boost it for the full party.

Profile

Character Info

The knight who holds the second seat at King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table.
His name: Percival de Galles.
He is a faithful knight, though sometimes described as an innocent fool.

Percival is an expert spearman, a knight who personally witnessed the miracle of the Holy Grail, and a man of compassion who has saved numerous souls. He bears and protects Longinus, another sacred lance that differs from the one kept by the King of Knights.

Profile 1

Height/Weight: 195cm, 110kg
Source: Legends of King Arthur, "Perceval, the Story of the Grail," and others
Region: Europe
Alignment: Lawful-Good
Gender: Male
Always serves extra-large portions.

Profile 2

Percival is a faithful guardian knight who stands on ceremony.
He is also described as innocent.
He conducts himself peacefully, without doubt or anger.
He dotes on children and animals he has never met, though he is unaware of this habit. During his lifetime, he was often seen standing in the gardens of Camelot with birds perched on his arms and shoulders.

In combat, his manner is harsher than usual, but only during combat.

Profile 3

The Holy Grail invited Galahad and Percival to heaven, but holy Longinus was destined to remain upon the earth.
The Percival depicted in this story is the Percival who is said to have returned with the sacred lance.

The knight Percival also appears in Wagner's final music drama "Parsifal."
In the opera, he is depicted as both a pilferer and inheritor of the sacred lance.

Profile 4

Protection of the Holy Grail: A
Receives a form of protection due to his deep ties to the Holy Grail, having directly witnessed Galahad's ascension to Heaven.
Percival is described as a keeper of the Holy Grail in legends and lore.

Guardian Knight (Sacred Lance): B+
A skill that exemplifies Percival's status as a virtuous keeper of the sacred lance.
It is superficially similar to the Guardian Knight skill.

Light of Salvation: B
Radiates a light imbued with defensive and healing effects.
This skill represents one of the boons granted by bearing the sacred lance.
Its effect is constantly active even without releasing the dual restraints on the lance.

Profile 5

Longinus Count Zero
Rank: C+~A+
NP Type: Anti-Fortress
Range: 1 – 70
Maximum Targets: 600

Gleaming Lance of Destiny.
A sacred lance said to have pierced the chest of Christ.
When its true name is released, Longinus manifests the awesome might it displayed in the battle between Sir Balin and King Pellam, becoming a literal anti-fortress Noble Phantasm that can demolish even a royal castle (believed to be Corbinec, the Grail castle).
Despite its terrifying destructive power, it also exhibits powers of healing.

Longinus has two restraints placed upon it by Galahad and Balin. These can be considered a reduced version of the Thirteen Seals of Rhongoymyniad (as well as the sacred sword Excalibur wielded by King Arthur from a different world).

Profile 6

Percival is good at taking care of people. He especially likes to fuss over his juniors. This includes his Master, as well. He has a heartfelt desire to protect and nurture the youth so that they may grow into great people. During his time on the Round Table, he doted on the young Gareth, Squire Bors, Lancelot's son Galahad, and others.

"Sir Percival is more of a brother to me than my actual brothers," beamed Gareth, one day.

After her death, Percival heard what she had said about him. He wept alone in the gardens of Camelot.

Level up 3 This ingredient is really delicious because it's nutritious!
Ascension 1 Being in armor really calms me.
This is my true form...Percival the knight, famed from the Round Table!
Did I surprise you? Well I couldn't help acting like my young self again...
How embarrassing...
Ascension 2 There are times when our forms do not change...
How strange...despite consuming so much nutrients...
Ascension 3 It was originally a shield. But after some time in battle, I realized it was much more fitting for me if I equipped it this way.
By doing so, I can use my spear at the same time.
Ascension 4 Master has invested so much for me. Then I shall reciprocate.
I am Percival the knight! Through the other sacred lance, I will smash your enemies!
Bond Level 1 Being young is nice. They are the very symbol of possibility.
As a mentor, raising them is my greatest joy.
Bond Level 2 And of course you are one of those younggins. May you stay healthy.
Bond Level 3 Master, do you not eat much?
Hm? Today is just an exception?
I see. I was just about to tell whoever was on cafeteria duty to double your portion today. Hahaha.
Bond Level 4 My body is now big and my heart has grown more mature as I've aged, but I used to be small and timid when I was young.
I have made great strides, but in the end the thing that was the most effective were meals.
You're still growing, Master, so make sure you eat well. That is important, you know.
Bond Level 5 My Noble Phantasm is the sacred lance.
It is the other sacred lance opposite to the Rhongomyniad wielded by the King of Knights.
It possesses immense power, so it is restrained by two seals, but it can be released at the time of need.
And I will not be the one who will make that decision...it will be you, Master.
Conversation 1 Master, your orders, please.
Conversation 2 I understand my position. You are my Master, my new lord.
Conversation 3 Master, I hope you are not hungry. You won't win any easy battles if you are hungry. Do not consider eating a chore.
Conversation 4 (Altria Pendragon, Altria Pendragon (Archer)) Our King of Knights! I never imagined I would reunite with you once again...
On top of that, we are now fellow Servants serving under the same Master. What strange coincidence! By the way, my King, have you...lost some weight? Oh no no no. This will not do! Allow your Percival to offer you a large serving of meat and root vegetables!
Conversation 5 (Bedivere) O loyal knight Bedivere. It has been a while. ...You seem a bit different now. It appears like some heavy weight has been lifted off from you.
The only thing I now see are gentle colored flowers on you. This one is a violet-colored...I wonder what flower this is.
Conversation 6 (Gareth) Gareth. You are still thin as a stick. You must eat more. Come on, eat up...
Gareth. Why are you running away? Gareth!!!
Conversation 7 (Gawain) Sir Gawain!
(Phew) Remarkable.
We generated immense impact just from gently bumping our fists together. That's Sir Gawain for you.
Conversation 8 (Lancelot, Lancelot (Saber)) ...Sir Lancelot. My friend, whom I have crossed blades with at times and went out on expeditions together. There was never a time when I forgot about you.
...I never thought I would be able to see you once again.
Conversation 9 (Tristan) Tristan.
Being unfaithful is never a good idea.
Conversation 10 (Gaius Julius Caesar) Lord Caesar.
Being unfaithful is never a good idea.
Conversation 11 (Merlin) The illustrious great mage.
What do you think he normally eats?
Conversation 12 (Arthur Pendragon (Prototype)) ...My King?
No...wait, wait, wait.
Huh!?
Conversation 13 (Cu Chulainn, Cu Prototype, Diarmuid, Leonidas, Fionn, Scathach, Houzouin, Li Shuwen, Nezha, Qin Liangyu, Bradamante, Achilles, Scathach (Assassin), Mori Nagayoshi) Wonderful. So this is where the strongest spearmen gather. Yeah, I like this.
All right! Master, watch us! Watch us compete against each other!
Likes Children are our love and treasure. We must protect them.
Dislikes Chaldea is full of supplies. That's wonderful.
No child will go hungry...
Ah well, the people I think are children are Heroic Spirits in their younger form, and Heroic Spirits do not need to eat. I do understand that in theory...but I seem to get the wrong idea.
About the Holy Grail I was unable to obtain the Holy Grail, but I certainly witnessed something that I consider precious. It was the light that Galahad possessed, and it was hope that points to the future.
I believe that, even to this day.
During an Event Something's started. Let's head out, Master!
Birthday I heard today is your birthday. Congratulations.
If that's the case, you should eat till you burst. I know you normally hold back and eat only when you feel a bit satisfied.
What? That's not it?
Well whatever. Eat up. Come on now, keep on eating! I'll keep on offering you more!
Summon Second seat of the Round Table. I am Percival the knight.
I have manifested to this world.
Together with the other sacred lance, I shall lend you my powers, Master.
