Overview

At first glance, most may think Paracelsus isn't as bad as the rating suggest. His skillset seems usable, especially targetable guts is rare, and none of his skills is completely useless, so where does it go wrong ? Firstly, all of his skills have extremely high cooldown. Even when maxed, a skillset with 8-7-8 turns cooldown is extremely detrimental and the value the skills provide are also not even amazing to make up for it. Furthermore, Paracelsus offers very little offensive wise. Being a Caster with low base attack, absolutely no strong steroids and a lackluster AoE Noble Phantasm mean he hits slightly harder than a wet noodle. All in all, Paracelsus is quite a poor choice for any team's Caster class. Players are better off investing in other stronger alternatives, even amonst low Rarity Servants like Andersen or Medea.

Strengths

  • Can support his team with targetable Guts and party wide Art buff
  • Can easily access his Noble Phantasm thanks to an instant 80% NP charge from Rapid Casting

Weaknesses

  • Extremely high cooldowns on all of his skills
  • Values provided from his skills are mediocre and definitely not enough to justify the high cooldowns. There are also better alternatives for his job
  • Low damage on his Noble Phantasm and terrible damage output in general

Craft Essence Recommendation

  • Formalcraft / Projection: Due to his heavy Art-based car deck, using Art boosting CEs is a good idea to improve his terrible damage output
  • Halloween Princess / Black Grail / Heaven's Feel: Paracelsus does have a strong NP charge skill in Rapid Casting, so using him in conjunction with these CEs can make him a somewhat decent AoE farmer
  • Fragment of 2030: Most support Servants can/should hold this CE if possible to give themselves more value even when they are not attacking.

Level Up Skill Recommendation

Rapid Casting should be maxed first obviously, as 80% instant NP charge is amazing for farming for an AoE NP Servant like Paracelsus. Of the remaining two, the reduced cooldown on Elemental offers more to the team, especially in an Art team than Philosopher's Stone which tends to only find its use in tough battle.

Suggested Servant Synergies

  • Medea: For quick Caster stacking NP clears, the two of them cover Single Target and AoE cases and have good CE flexibility.  The teamwide Arts Buff also helps overall damage.

  • Nursery Rhyme: Nursery Rhyme is another beneficiary of Paracelsus’ arts buff, and can make use of the guts due to lacking other hard survivability in her kit.  

  • Orion: Orion can also use Paracelsus’ Arts buff well to buff their damage, and the guts will act as a backline survival method.
