Welfare

First Impressions:

Under her born name of Nagao Kagetora, the famous Sengoku period warlord Uesugi Kenshin joins the servant roster as the first Single-target NP Welfare Lancer.

Nagao's kit is simple, but effective. With two damage steroids in the form of My Fate Lies With Heaven A and My Merit Lies In My Own Two Feet A, combined with her free NP Level 5 as a Welfare servant, Nagao is hardly lacking in damage output. She has few weaknesses on the defensive side of things, being able to take the sting out of her foes using her NP's offensive buff removal and critical rate debuff, while packing a low-cooldown evasion skill in My Armor Lies Upon My Chest A to avoid dying to Noble Phantasms.

Our new friendly Arts Lancer also has a capable niche as a critical damage dealer, being able to both soak in stars and deal increased critical damage with her offensive steroids, although she does not gain as much critical damage increase from it as some other Lancers. With her fairly solid base NP gauge gain and Arts focus, it's quite easy for her to gain a large sum of gauge refund off of her NP brave chains, letting her inflict high damage in succession. My Merit Lies In My Own Two Feet A's nature as a team buff also lets her provide a small amount of support to her allies should the situation arise, though she is far from the role of a dedicated support.

Nagao's weaknesses lie in her inability to provide many critical stars for herself, only possessing one Quick card, her need to utilize her evasion skill in order to gain maximum NP gauge charger from her NP, having to balance durability and offense as a result, and the short duration on My Fate Lies With Heaven A, limiting her lasting damage output. While these weaknesses cannot be easily resolved, they can be mitigated with the right support choices.

All-in-all, Nagao is a very solid Welfare who won't draw any complaints on her ability to crush her targets with her high-power single target NP, defensive options and small array of team support. Should a Master lack a particularly powerful option for damage versus Archers in challenge quests or just universally, Nagao will be a very good answer, both in dedicated Arts teams and outside them.

While Nagao's kit is helpful in all aspects, there is something of a clear order which can be taken in levelling her skills. 

  • My Fate Lies With Heaven A is important to Nagao's damage output, but can be levelled either first or second. Levelling it first provides the greatest boost to her NP damage, but sacrifices her damage output in other areas, and her team support.
  • My Armor Lies Upon My Chest A should be levelled last. While having the evade on a shorter cooldown and upgrading the NP gain buff are both useful, it isn't as impactful as gaining Nagao's offensive tools more frequently and making them more powerful.
  • My Merit Lies In My Own Two Feet A can be levelled either first or second. Levelling it first and foremost both helps Nagao's damage output and her team's, but does not aid her personal damage output and ability to NP spam as much as her other offensive skill.

Craft Essence Recommendation

With few weaknesses to compensate for asides her lack of any NP gauge chargers, choosing a CE for Nagao is quite simple. Kaleidoscope will let her immediately pull off her powerful NP with little fuss, but with further team support options such as Holy Night Supper can be used to gain additional offensive benefits. If immediately NPing isn't much of an issue, Arts-boosting, Critical Damage-boosting, and NP damage-boosting CE's are all effective options, with a plethora of good options to select from.
