Attack / HP Growth

Overview

Living up to her identity as the bastard child of Arthur (or Altria), Mordred is almost a carbon copy of her father. Sporting a slightly higher base attack, trading Charisma for Secret of Pedigree and having an incredible niche Overcharge effect on her Noble Phantasm, Mordred does not differentiate herself enough and ends up being the same thing as Altria, a glorified AoE farmer. 

It should be noted that there are certain advantages of using Mordred over Altria, as she makes use of Craft Essences like Kaleidoscope or max limit break Imaginary Element better due to Secret of Pedigree, and she has slightly easier time reaching 100% NP bar. She is also arguably tankier thanks to the one turn defense self-buff and debuff cleanse components on Secret of Pedigree, although having several effects crammed into one skill means not being able to take full advantage of all the effects in different situations. Nonetheless, these are not enough to put her on the same level as other Sabers like Altera or Okita who offer more to the table than the Pendragon family.

Strengths

  • Strong AoE NP thanks to Mana Burst and faster access to NP Interlude
  • Good farming servant due to having an NP charge skill, allowing her to make full use of Craft Essences like Kaleidoscope
  • Can be deceptively tanky thanks to Debuff cleanse and Defense buff, albeit for only 1 turn

Weaknesses

  • One dimensional and does not particularly excel at anything due to a vanilla skillset
  • Despite having a defense self-buff, can still fall quickly during tough boss fights due to lack of dodge, invulnerability, or guts.

Craft Essence Recommendation

  • Kaleidoscope, The Imaginary Element: Allow her to quickly fire her Noble Phantasm for farming or against multiple units, especially when combined with Secret of Pedigree
  • Limited/Zero Over, Verdant Sound of Destruction: Vastly improve her damage output due to her reliance on her Buster cards to deal damage
  • Heaven's Feel / The Black Grail: Improve her AoE damage output, though she may have trouble getting her NP bar filled without support.
  • Halloween Princess: A combination of both Heaven's Feel and Imaginary Element.

Level Up Skill Recommendation

Maxing Mana Burst first is a given for Mordred, as she is extremely reliant on her Noble Phantasm, just like her father, Altria.

After Mana Burst, the priority should be on Secret of Pedigree. If Kaleidoscope is available, level 6 Secret of Pedigree is enough for Mordred to instantly access her Noble Phantasm. Nonetheless, it is still worth maxing even past level 6 for the reduced cooldown.

Intuition is frankly an underwhelming skill and should not be prioritized over her two other skills, if at all.

Suggested Servant Synergies

As a clone of Altria Pendragon, Mordred has the slight niche of killing Altrias and charging her own NP, but is mostly subject to the same general-use cases of Altria.  

  • Tamamo no Mae: Tamamo’s biggest benefits towards Mordred is fueling multiple NPs in short succession through a combination of Mordred’s own NP refund, the NP granted through Tamamo’s NP, and also reducing the cooldown on Mordred’s Secret of Pedigree skill.

  • David: David’s triple arts cards helps Mordred build NP gauge, while his partywide dodge provides hard survivability compared to her single-turn defense buff.  

  • Altria Pendragon: If you find yourself in a situation where you need multiple Saber wave clears, why not stack AoE Sabers?  Due to having a similar skillset, Mordred is pretty usable in the same situations as Altria.  Bonus points for flavor.
