Anniversary Blond is an excellent Mystic Code to go with Buster Critical Damage Dealers. Its abilities are more suited to short battle where you try to overbuff one main Damage Dealer and try to burst the boss down within single turn. A simple but very effective Mystic Code.
- Mana Burst is identical to the servant skill. It increases Buster card performance by 60% at level 10 instead of the normal 45-55% and has a much steeper cooldown. It is fairly straightforward, as you will mostly use this skill on your main Buster damage dealer before using a Buster Noble Phantasm, or Buster Brave Chain.
- Confident in Victory is a slightly better version of Intuition by a few more Critical Stars. When used in conjunction with Mana Burst on your main Critical Damage Dealer (servants with reliable star draw like Gilgamesh, Brynhildr or Jeanne Alter), it is an extremely effective combo.
- Knight’s Oath is an one-turn Guts buff to an ally, reviving them with 4000 HP if they receive fatal damage. Guts isn’t a bad defensive tool, but it is harder to utilize well than Invulnerability or Dodge. Nonetheless, having some form of defensive tool is great as most Buster Critical Damage Dealers don't have the best survivability.
Notable Strategies and Users:
This mystic code is strongest when you have one Buster-oriented Servant in your party who can do insane one-turn burst, preferably with a Critical Buster or NP Buster Brave Chain. Notable Servants include Karna, Gilgamesh, Brynhildr or Jeanne Alter, as these Servants have either strong Critical Stars Absorbtion skill and/or Critical Damage buffs.
As this Mystic Code is more suited to quick battles, it is also a good choice for farming parties that have Buster Noble Phantasm such as Altria Pendragon, Francis Drake, Nikola Tesla or Mordred since it can vastly improve their damage output with their Noble Phantasm. It is particularly effective on Servant who doesn’t have Buster card performance buff themselves like Sakata Kintoki, Beowulf or Heracles due to how buffs of the same type are multiplicative (leading to diminished return).
Anniversary Blond has a standard leveling curve, higher than the default mystic code but far lower than the Mage's Association, Atlas Academy, and Chaldea Combat uniforms. Mana Burst goes from 40% to 60% increase in Buster card performance which is quite influential. The increase in the Stars generated by Confident in Victory should not be undersold, as the doubling from 10 Critical Stars to 20 significantly increases the chances of Critical Buster Brave Chains. Knight’s Oath is the least improved out of the three, since the value of the skill is in the Guts itself rather than the revive HP.
