Gilles de Rais

HP 1889 ATK 1228
Max HP 10498 Grail ATK 6615


  • Aim to finish Strengthening Quest to unlock his Mad Enhancement EX to improve Buster effectiveness since Buster appears as frequently as his Arts Cards.
  • Focus on unleashing his NP first to gain the ATK buff, then finish the enemies off by performing a Buster Chain.
  • Combining a reinforced Prelati’s Rage with Mad Enhancement EX, Gilles de Rais can severely punish enemies with Buster Chains due to the lower CT.
  • Gilles de Rais (Saber) appreciates support from servants that cast DEF buffs.
  • This includes Mash Kyrielight which has access not only to Wall of Brittle Snowflakes but also grants invincibility through Wall of Fuming Chalk.
    • Her NP which can chain with Gilles de Rais (Saber)’s, attempts to cushion his NP’s DEF debuff.
  • Boudica works similar to Mash Kyrielight in terms of granting allies the DEF buff.
    • Thus when performing an Arts chain, make sure that before having Gilles de Rais cast his NP, have Boudica cast hers on the same turn.
  • Saint Martha can fulfill two solutions to Gilles de Rais NP drawback. Her Miracle Skill removes the debuff from him, enabling him to prolong his stay in battle. Apart from that, any damage sustained can be restored due to the Healing effect of this Skill.
    • The burden with this method however is that Gilles de Rais must survive until the next turn before the effect can be lifted.

Best Equipment

  • There are multiple Craft Essences that allow Gilles de Rais (Saber) to fluorish in battle, among them include improving his Buster Chains, softening damage, and encouraging NP collected.
  • Despite his NP being Arts-type, his main asset is utilizing Buster Chains. It is therefore more reliable to equip him with Limited/Zero Over which adds 25% to the Buster Cards‘ effectiveness.
  • Another viable alternative against the DEF debuff is to use Iron-Willed Training. By equipping this Craft Essence, it patches up the otherwise frail DEF.
  • If you intend to raise the NP generation instead Divine Banquet is another alternative to allow him to execute Saint War Order early.

Gilles De Rais, a military man and a noble, fought and defeated the army of New Orleans. He soon gazed his eyes upon Jeanne D’Arc, the woman who would then symbolize the existence of god. A lover of art, Gilles de Rais spent majority of his fortune on such art pieces. As a military man, he also had an honest and valorous personality which granted him the title Marshall.

However, his personality would soon take a turn after seeing Jeanne burn at the stake. His symbol of salvation in his depraved reality burned to ashes, leaving him nothing but a cynical view of the world. He soon turned to the dark arts and learned the ways of magic from Francoise Prelati.

When summoned in Saber form, he still retains his knightly demeanour. But it still doesn’t mask his sociopathic nature as a serial killer.
