Atlas Academy Uniform
Arguably the most defensive Mystic Code, and a staple for many Challenging Quests. This Mystic Code's potential lies in its signature skill Eye of Medjed which reduces all of a targeted unit’s skill cooldowns by two.
This effect increases the consistency of any stalling team, provides a crucial reduction in downtime for solo servants and is a generally versatile skill by allowing Masters to quickly bring a particular skill off cooldown to counter an (unexpected) enemy move. With Break Bars becoming a factor during Epic of Remnant (after Part 1), Masters will often run into less predictable situations as they break an enemy HP bar. A cooldown reduction is often just what a Master needs to survive!
Furthermore, this Mystic Code can cleanse a target's debuffs and provide Invincbility to one Servant, which are always useful defensive tools in the hardest quests. Solo and last-man-standing Servants will especially adore the extra turn of protection.
Outside of tough challenges/missions though, this Mystic Code is often fairly mediocre as it lacks any direct form of damage steroids. It is a safe Mystic Code, not a farming one typically.
Dust of Osiris grants one turn Invincibility to a target Servant. This is usually reserved for dodging a boss’ NP. Do note that bosses with the Invincibility Pierce buff can bypass this skill (such as Francis Drake or Nikola Tesla). Some bosses will also strip buffs before dealing damage such as Amakusa.
Rain of Isis is a targeted debuff clear. Some of the toughest bosses often have some very nasty and debilitating debuffs that can destroy a plan at the most inopportune of times. Some of the more common supports often lack a way to remove debuffs, making Rain of Isis particularly useful in these setups. This skill is also a favorite for removing self-inflicted debuffs such for Servants like Tamamo-Cat.
Eye of Medjed reduces the current cooldown of all skills of the targeted Servant by two. Do note that it will only affect skills actively on cooldown.
Notable Strategies and Users:
There are three playstyle archetypes that utilize this Mystic Code well: Heavy Damage Dealers, Support Servants, and Solo Servants. It is also a very common Mystic Code to see for Arts teams in general, as they often focus on longer, but sustained damage and durable teams.
Powerful boss killers with strong skills like Jeanne (Alter), Scathach, or Okita Souji appreciate the extra protection from damage and debuffs from this Mystic Code so they can continue doing their job. Any cooldown reduction is useful if enemies have Break Bars but with low max HP, as they often require an additional cycle of skills to kill.
Supports like Waver, Tamamo no Mae, Merlin or Mash Kyrielight rise exponentially in value the more they can stay on the field and buff teammates, all of which the Atlas Academy uniform contributes toward.Crucially, the cooldown reduction often allows a support to stall or protect a team against successive Noble Phantasms, a feat they wouldn't normally be able to do without a reduction in their cooldowns or NP Drains/disables on the enemy
Strong solo Servants like Cu Chulainn, Heracles, and Nero Claudius can abuse the reduced cooldown from Eye of Medjed on their major survival skills, while the cleanse and Invincibility add an extra layer to their survivability. The combination of the Invincibility and cooldown reduction is often essential to staying long enough in the fight to clean up the quest.
Usually the extremely high EXP level cap and the lack of any performance increase (outside of the standard cooldown reduction at level 6 and 10) would point against leveling up this Mystic Code as a priority. However, for long-duration battles, getting to use the Eye of Medjed skill as often as possible can make the difference between success and failure. Masters could consider leveling this to at least level 6 over time.
