Overview

Florence Nightingale, the Angel of the Crimea, ally to soldiers wounded in battle, materializes as a Berserker-class Servant. As one might expect from her historical background as the founder of modern nursing, she acts primarily as a support Servant, with her first skill being a single target heal (Nurse of Steel A), and her Noble Phantasm being a full party heal, debuff cleanse, and enemy NP damage down (Nightingale Pledge, Arts). She can fill her NP gauge relatively well due to her QAABB deck and decent card hitcount.

Her Berserker-class typing, while making her unique in that she is arguably the only dedicated support in the Berserker class, also makes her more fragile than many supports. To help compensate, her survivability among Berserker class Servants is supported in two ways: her second skill raises defense and attack against Humanoids (Understanding of the Human Body A), a trait which almost every enemy Servant has. She also has the highest HP stat across Berserker servants at 15,221 at maximum. These lend her more survivability than many other Servants who share her class.

Her star generation and star absorption weight are average for the Berserker class. Something to note is that this is a higher star generation rate and lower star absorption than is average for Casters (the usual support class). This is actually useful, meaning she will generate slightly more stars for the party while absorbing less than Caster supports, allowing more to be allocated to other Servants in the party that she is supporting.

Finally, as an ode to the inspiration she garners in the soldiers she supports, her third skill is a Buster performance increase of up to 50% to one ally of choice (Angel’s Cry EX). This is buff remains the greatest single targetable Buster performance buff for some time (until the advent of Merlin).

For those looking forward, she will later gain an NP upgrade which additionally inflicts a debuff of 50% ATK down on all enemies.

Strengths

Strong Buster Team Support

At maximum level, Angel’s Cry comes with a 5-turn cooldown, leading to a 50% Buster buff to an ally that is only inactive for 2 turns.

Improves Full Team survivability

With both a large single target heal (4000 HP at maximum level on a 5-turn cooldown) and a full party heal tied to her NP (3000 HP at NP1), she can keep her team and herself alive for longer periods of time

QAABB deck and High Hit counts on Quick and Extra attacks

These support her ability to fill her NP gauge quickly, as well as supporting star generation. She is one of few Berserker-class Servants to have a QAABB (two Arts card) deck. Her NP gain of 0.77% is slightly below average for the Berserker class, however the two 2-hit Arts cards, the high hit count of her Quick card (6 hits), and her Extra attack hit count (5 hits) allows her to gain NP relatively comfortably off AAQ / AQA chains and generate stars with her quick attacks. Combined with her low inherent star absorption, this lends to more stars being allocated to servants she is supporting.

Weaknesses

Berserker Class Fragility

Being Berserker class, she takes twice as much damage from all other classes. This makes her more fragile than other support Servants.

Lowest Attack in Class

Her max attack stat of 10,184 is the lowest of SSR Berserker class Servants available, and is lower than even some SR Berserkers without grailing. Even with her Madness Enhancement EX passive (Buster Performance +12%), many of the other SSR Berserkers with higher base ATK also share the Madness Enhancement passive and end up superior. Along with her supportive NP, she is not the best for damage output.

Craft Essence Recommendation
  • Little Halloween Devil/Repeat Magic: Improving her NP generation rate and starting with progress towards a first NP will be helpful in facilitating her supportive role.
  • Fragments of 2030: Her inherent star absorption rate is low as a Berserker-class servant, so the stars that she generates from the CE are more likely to be used by the other servants that she is supporting.
  • Gentle Affection: This increases her raw healing by 15%(20%), which affects both her skills and NP, complimenting her healing support role.
  • Indomitableness: Her bond CE enhances every aspect of her support, increasing the entire party’s Buster performance by 10% and healing received by all allies by 20% while she is on the field. If you have her bond CE, it is absolutely worthwhile to equip on her.
Level Up Skill Recommendation

Nurse of Steel A – Her first skill supports her role as a healer very well. Although the heal is already sizeable at level 1 (2000 HP), at maximum level it reaches 4000 HP on a cooldown of 5 turns, making this also a priority for leveling.

Understanding of the Human Body A – This skill increases her damage output (up to 50%) and reduces damage taken (up to 25%) from enemies with the Humanoid trait. This includes almost all enemy Servants in the game as well as many other enemy types (zombies, soldiers, naga, amazonesses, werewolves, centaurs, helter-skelters). This will help increase survivability against Humanoid encounters. At max level, this runs on a 6-turn cooldown. Although useful to have, it is not quite as high priority as her other two skills.

Angel’s Cry EX – The Buster card performance boost of her third skill is arguably the greatest boon she provides to a party, particularly as Buster team support. The decreased cooldown (5 turns) and 50% performance boost at maximum level is worth reaching as soon as possible.
