Stat Ratings

Attack / HP Growth


Caster, in general, is a terrible class to have AoE NP, and Gilles is not an exception. However, lackluster NP damage is not the sole reason why he ended up at the bottom of the barrel alongside his normal eyes counterpart. He offers nothing compared to other Casters such as Medea, Hans, Shakespeare and damage-wise most AoE Berserkers are way ahead of him. The fact that he is only available through Story Summon doesn't help him either, as it only means he is significantly harder to get NP 5. To put the nail on the coffin, Caster Elizabeth is free, can get NP 5 and is infinitely better than him at basically everything. It is recommended that players skip Gilles Caster completely because it is just torturous trying to make him work.




  • Lackluster NP damage due to being an AoE Caster, lack of steroids and much lower availability compared to other Caster due to being story locked
  • Poor skillset and generation stats, offers next to nothing to the team outside of tickling enemies with his NP

Craft Essence Recommendation

Since his identity is basically tied to his AoE Cthulhu NP, Gilles desires either starting NP bar CE like Kaleidoscope / Little Halloween Devil / Imaginary Element or NP damage increasing CE like Heaven's Feel / Black Grail / Halloween Princess.

Outside of these choices, players can give him CE like Formalcraft to boost his Art card performance since he does have 3 Art cards, or Divine Banquet / Prisma Cosmos to improve his NP generation

Level Up Skill Recommendation

All of Gilles skills are frankly, pretty bad. Players definitely should not level his skills unless you really like him or is Uryuu Ryuunosuke incarnated.

His most decent skill is only available after Rank Up, and even then it is a niche in its use and can easily be either dispelled or blocked by many bosses. At the very least, it still has some use and certainly is better than his two other skills.

Of the remaining two, Aesthetic Appreciation is less useless, although it won't help much if at all in the face of a boss about to use a strong Noble Phantasm. It might help you mitigate some damage if you have a class advantage, but other than that it is just as useful as Gilles himself.

Suggested Servant Synergies

Note: Gilles is already pretty self-contained as a servant. Arguably, he doesn’t have a strong niche aside from being some kind of debuffer.

  • Asterios: If you want to run some kind of debuffing squad, Asterios’ debuffs on NP stack nicely with Gilles’ own sizeable attack down debuff, as well as his NP damage down debuff. Laugh as enemies deal considerably neutered damage. Post interlude and Rank Up, Gilles gains a potential stun, while Asterios gains an even stronger one-turn 40% attack and defense down on the enemy.

  • Shakespeare: When fighting assassins, Shakespeare can boost Gilles’ NP damage with Enchant for a larger burst of damage.

  • Ushiwakamaru: Ushiwakamaru’s team utility solves two problems. Her team-wide NP gain buff helps out Gilles with his slightly below average arts gain, while Charisma boosts Gilles’ low attack stat.
