Craft Essence Recommendation

There are basically two routes for choosing CE for Hans: either improve his NP generation so he can use his NP more frequently, or improve his survivability.

The first route is generally better since their effects are more profound as Hans' NP also improves his and the parties' tankiness. Prisma Cosmos is one of if not the best CEs for Hans, and CEs like Formal Craft / Little Halloween Devil or Divine Banquet can be cheap replacements.

Level Up Skill Recommendation

A lot of Hans' strength comes from his incredible supportive Noble Phantasm. Unlike a lot of supporters, he has easy access to it thanks to Rapid Casting and can even use his NP within the 1st turn with Craft Essence or Allies' help. Rapid Casting also has a decent cooldown (6 turns) when maxed and it comes off quite frequently in hard battles. As such this skill should be heavily prioritized for leveling.

Human Observation and Innocent Monster are both skills that serve to facilitate crit damage dealers such as Gilgamesh or Lancelot. Which skill to max first depends on what is available for the players. If the team already have a consistent, dedicated star generator such as Cursed Arm Hassan or Gilgamesh, Human Observation can be maxed to improve the damage output, while Innocent Monster should be maxed if there is a lack of critical star generator on the team. In most case, Innocent Monster is better thanks to its consistency and independence.

Suggested Servant Synergies
  • Ushiwakamaru: Hans has pretty much everything Ushiwakamaru could want - sustain, defense buffs, more attack buffs, consistent critical stars, and also a critical damage buff. With her Rider star weight, Ushiwakamaru can reach new highs with strong crits fueling her NP gain for even more damage. Meanwhile, Ushiwakamaru’s NP gain buff will help Hans spam his NP and especially benefit from Arts chains.

  • Georgios: Hans is somewhat fragile on his own, so as an Arts tank like Georgios is able to give Hans' breathing room for his Rapid Casting to come off of cooldown. With two Arts cards and an Arts NP, Georgios has many chances to form Arts chains with Hans, further allowing him to use their Noble Phantasms more often.

  • Gilgamesh: Another premier example of a strong damage dealer who benefits from Hans. Gilgamesh’s Collector EX and high Independent Action rank help him to consistently benefit from Hans’ stars, while Charisma stacks with Hans’ NP to increase the party damage. Meanwhile, due to his relative frailty, Gilgamesh benefits from Hans’ defense buffs and heals.

Which CE's could be useful for Hans?

by sadbat (not verified) 3 months 2 weeks ago

He really shouldn't be at S+ tier. There maybe an emphasis on his fast charging support NP, but since it's luck based you can't really rely on the effects all too much. At best, the NP is great if you aren't really dependent on the buffs, but if you want to consistently increase your parties damage/defense there are better options.

At NP 5 it's an 80% chance which is more than fair for what the NP provides. He's a 2 star so he is fairly light on materials to ascend and it is easy to rank up his NP. Definitely S+ material in most people eye's.

Point one that doesn't depend on EX-Rank Luck or whaling, please. Not everyone can have SSR stuff on demand but, if there're other cheap options, I'd be glad to know.

There's an error on the page. The 3rd skill level up shows a saber gem instead of a caster gem.

by John Hunk (not verified) 1 month 3 weeks ago

Please add "A Fragment of 2030" as a recommended CE. It's very good for him.
