  1. This list is awful in what world are Altera, Altria(Artoria) & Jeanne S tier servants… (I’m not being biased are anyhing Artoria is my only 5* servant)

    • The tier list can change at any given time depending on the patch that comes in for the US version of the game. Altera wins over Altria in terms of damage power and has higher stats. However, Altria has more defensive capabilities than Altera, making her potent in her own way. Jeanne’s noble phantasm has saved a lot of people. But she’s only appreciated a little more in late game due to the stuns she receives along with her passive skills. She’s not S-Tier in terms of damage but rather on how well she can soak it up. She boasts high defensive stats in comparison to most servants. Not only that, she can also heal despite suffering the debuff of being stunned for two turns.

      For more strategies about her, I suggest you check this out: https://samurai-gamers.com/fate-grand-order/jeanne-darc-stats-skills-list/ 🙂

  2. Waver herc and Jeanne are the only s tier, and not all other 4 stars are tier 4, some like eon, sigfried, tamamo, stheno, Lily and arguably Atalanta would be B at best, along with arturia and mash
    Also Hans is amazing, and I have waver, everyone agrees he’s probably the best 2star along Hassan, with George slightly below; ceaser, because of the lack of good sabers and being the only one with a different spread is really good, with a great np and charisma
    Arash is also really good with waver

  3. Without the Strengthening Quest Kiyohime NP should have dealt less damage than Darius. Plus Darius can charge his NP faster thanks to golden rule.

  4. Ushiwakamaru is currently the only rider that has a single target NP in NA. Which make her pretty useful in Okeanos.

  5. I have a feeling you guys know more about “just surviving a fight” than taking advantage of gil’s ability to sweep mobs and rain c stars. Nice job putting him under altria and emiya.

  6. Charles Henri Sanson and Asterios are actually some of the strongest sub-3* Servants in the game, and Charles is basically a mini Waver. In fact, Asterios and Charles were the two most used servants of a guy who beat most of the game using only 2* and 1* servants.
    Also, the only servants that really stand out and should be in true S tier are Waver, Heracles, and Jeanne. Everyone else from A and S tier are about the same in terms of strength.
