How to use
One of the few hybrid Craft Essences that raises NP strength and gauge. Since Halloween Princess consists of a balance with NP damage and gauge, it works decently to sweep through any remaining enemies left on the battlefield. However, placing Halloween Princess with Caster-type servants that have innate NP gauge boosting abilities may be wasting the craft essence.
Given that the Halloween Princess adds up to both damage and gauge, the split effects faces stiff competition with other Craft Essences. Some of these other craft essences such as 4 Star Starting NP Craft Essences offer higher NP from the start. With the limitation imposed, it is better off equipped on a servant that has multiple Arts Cards in his deck. Some servants that have this kind of setting are Jeanne D’ Arc who has multiple Arts cards. Another servant that has multiple Arts cards is EMIYA who can combine this with his Magecraft ability. Not only does it increase his gauge, it also increases the strength of his Noble Phantasm: Unlimited Bladeworks.
Kaleidoscope is an alternative that trades NP Damage for higher starting NP, with The Imaginary Element being the close second. On the other hand, Black Grail trades Starting NP for raw power with Heaven’s Feel offering a more sustainable option.
