Siegfried

HP 2266 ATK 1363
Max HP 15150 Max ATK 11221

Strategy

  • Siegfried is a strong attacker with no particular weaknesses, and a special ability to slay dragons.
  • However, against non-dragon enemies, he cannot make the most of his skills without some support.
  • With 2 Buster Cards, 2 Arts Cards, and 1 Quick Card, Siegfried is at his best when either dealing damage or charging up his Noble Phantasm, Balmung.
  • When leveling up his skills, it’s best to focus on Dragon-slayer, because once upgraded, it also boosts the power of Balmung. The next priority is Golden Rule, which helps him fill up his NP Gauge faster, and, when combined with Balmung‘s own NP gain effect at EX rank, lets him use it more often.
  • Though he has a lot of good skills to function on his own, Siegfried always appreciates some good support.
    • Saint George is an incredibly good supporting member for Siegfried, because his Noble Phantasm, Ascalon, applies the Dragon trait to an enemy, allowing Siegfried to deal even greater damage to them afterward. Saint George’s 2 Arts Command Cards, combined with Siegfried’s own 2 Arts Command Cards, allows the pair to form Arts Command Chains easily, in order to charge both of their Noble Phantasms. Finally, Saint George has Guardian Knight to draw attacks away from Siegfried, protecting him from damage so he could keep attacking.
    • Leonidas can also do a decent job of supporting Siegfried, in particular. Being a Lancer-class, he can naturally cover Siegfried’s weakness to Archers. Pride of the Rearguard also lets him draw attacks away from Siegfried, while Warrior’s War Cry boosts Buster card performance for the entire party.
  • Overall, Siegfried can fit on many teams that need a good damage-dealer who isn’t frail, by any means.

Best Equipment

  • Siegfried has all the tools he needs to do his job, so his equipped Craft Essence should just boost his strengths.
  • Code Cast boosts both ATK and DEF, but it only lasts for 3 turns.
  • Iron-willed Training is a 15-20% boost to DEF, which lets Siegfried survive more hits.
  • Meanwhile, Limited/Zero Over is a powerful card that boosts Buster card performance 25-30%, letting his attacks and Balmung to all hit harder, generate more NP, and increase their C. Star gain.

Origins

Siegfried lived his life inflicted with a curse. With that, his back would be forever exposed. People sing his name in the Nibelungenlied. Siegfried is known for his ability to slay dragons. Wielding the holy sword Balmung, the “dragon slayer” defeated the evil dragon Fafnir. Despite his calm appearance, he is a man of passion. Often times, Siegfried rushes to his friends’ aid to protect them in combat.

After defeating Fafnir, he drinks his blood and Siegfried becomes immortal. His immortality allows him to survive even the direst of battles. However, his glory was short lived. His wife and the wife of his brother-in-law engaged each other in conflict, forcing him to give up his immortality.

Upon becoming a heroic spirit, Siegfried wishes to be a hero that lives by his own code.

Please note, Leonidas link actually links to Romulus page.

And here’s to hoping his next strengthening complements his tanky HP/nature. His (unreleased in NA) strengthenings aren’t bad but they don’t seem ground breaking. But despite that, here’s to hoping.

Oh! Thanks for letting us know! 🙂 We’ll fix it 🙂

People say he sucks due to low attack, but I disagree. The point isn’t to use him as a murder machine, but as a totally self-supportive unit who can deal decent damage while sustaining himself, kinda like his depiction in Apocrypha actually: not going to use some OP attack to one-shot, but win through attrition.

I totally agree. He’s a unique kind of Saber especially when he tag-teams with Georgios. 🙂

That’s probably Siegfried’s most prominent selling point though most people would prefer “murder machines”. At the same time, people complain that his damage is best maxed out with Georgios around. But he makes a pretty decent attack/def servant in comparison to being full offense or full defense.

Truly someone who lives by his own code.
