One of the best welfare Servants in the game and easily the best 4 star Assassin, Shiki is a well-rounded Arts-focused Assassin that focuses on single target damage.Thanks to her good amount of hit counts, NP generation rate, Art-focused deck, and her Yin Yang skill, Shiki has no problem generating NP bar and can spam her Noble Phantasm endlessly in an Arts team. Her star generation is also not bad either, enough for her to work well on her own or provide support to teammates. With her natural critical damage buffs from Mind's Eye and Independent Action, Shiki can also function as an Arts critical damage dealer. To round it off, Shiki also has an on-demand dodge, making her well-suited for tough fights.
All in all, Shiki is a consistent and powerful boss killer in Arts team, but can work well independently of team support.
Great NP Generation Rate
Ryougi Shiki has an Arts-focused deck with 2 Arts cards and an Arts Noble Phantasm, allowing her to easily do Arts Chains with teammates.
Her NP generation per hit is quite decent as well (0.8 per hit). While her Arts cards only hit 2 times (3 times for her NP), her Quick cards hit for 4 times each, meaning she can get good NP generation out of her Quick cards and has decent NP refund rate.
Her Yin Yang skill allows her to instantly get 30% NP bar at level 10, allowing her to use her Noble Phantasm on her 1st turn when paired with Craft Essences like Kaleidoscope or maxed limit break Imaginary Element.
Decent Star Generation Rate
Being an Assassin, Shiki has high base star generation rate by default (25%).
This is further helped by her Quick cards hitting 4 times and having a C rank Presence Concealment.
She is a bit weaker than a similar Assassin, Mysterious Heroine X, due to MHX having a higher star generation passive and a high hit count Quick Noble Phantasm, but it is pretty close in terms of overall output.
Can Function as an Arts Critical Damage Dealer
Shiki is one of the rare Assassins that have critical damage buffs in her skillset, allowing her to serve as a critical damage dealer.
Her low star absorption rate might be a problem, but she can offset it by generating critical stars on her own.
Has an On-Demand Dodge
Mind's Eye allows her to survive a lot more proactively compared to Assassins without it like MHX or Camilla.
Great Single-Target Noble Phantasm
Shiki's Noble Phantasm hits quite hard thanks to her Mystic Eye of Death Perception skill and high NP level.
It also ignores Defense buffs, and combined with Mystic Eye of Death Perception's ability to bypass dodge / invulnerability she is a great Servant to bring when faced bosses that has strong defense buff / dodge.
It can also instant kill most mobs due to its secondary effect. However, most bosses will have very low death rate and you should not count on this when using her.
Low Damage with her Normal Cards
Outside of her Noble Phantasm and the occasional critical hits, Shiki has low damage on her normal cards.
This is due to the Assassin's modifier, as well as her lack of Buster cards and long-lasting self-buffs.
One can solve this by putting her into a heavy Arts team with strong buffers to allow her to spam her Noble Phantasm, or/and supply her with a lot of critical stars.
Poor Durability over Time
Assassin Shiki's HP pool is quite low for a 4 star Servant, coupled with the demerit on her Yin Yang means she might fall down very fast when focused, especially when her dodge is on cooldown.
It is best to pair her with someone that also improve her survivability, such as Jeanne d'Arc or Tamamo no Mae.
- Formalcraft / Projection: With an Arts-focused deck, more Arts performance booster is never a bad thing. Assassin Shiki gains a lot from these Craft Essences in term of both damage output and NP generation rate.
- Halloween Princess: Getting a solid NP damage buff will vastly increase her NP damage output, while the starting NP gauge lets her pop off her first NP much sooner. Thanks to Yin Yang she will also get to 100% NP bar easily.
- Little Halloween Devil / Divine Banquet: Further improving her NP generation rate is not a bad idea, and Little Halloween Devil can also helps her use her 1st NP much faster when you need to burst the boss down fast.
- Heaven's Feel / Black Grail: Her Noble Phantasm hits really hard and Heaven's Feel will make it even more devastating. You can consider Black Grail as well but with her Yin Yang and Black Grail's demerit she can fall quite fast.
- Kitchen Patissiere: A solid choice for Shiki as she needs both the star generation and NP generation buff, making her all around better.
- Another Ending: A really strong Craft Essence for her if the team can help her with star generation (such as having Nero Bride or Fragments of 2030) to facilitate her critical attacks.
- Mystic Eye of Death Perception is a no brainer to max first. This skill is Shiki's main steroid and allows her single target Noble Phantasm to hit like a truck. Its Invulnerability Pierce component also allows her to bypass most bosses who like to use Dodge or Invulnerability such as Marie Antoinette.
- Yin Yang should be maxed right after. This skill is extremely useful for Shiki's role and can even facilitate 1st turn Noble Phantasm when combined with Craft Essences like Kaleidoscope or maxed limit break Imaginary Element.
- Mind's Eye (Fake) is her main survival tool while also slightly helps her damage output with the Critical Damage buff component. In general, you will most likely use this skill to avoid a Noble Phantasm from the enemies or stalling for time, and the added Critical Damage bonus is just a bonus. If you want to focus more on survivability instead, maxing this skill before Yin Yang can be considered.

Excellent and very complete analysis! Having her is a nice consolation prize for us who could not get neither MHX and/or Jack :P
As an added note, she seems to be ideal to pair with other art based SR chars like Nero and D'Eon... or even help lost causes like Fionn who is also arts based... and SSR chars like Orion and Nero Bride.
Nice work with adding the servants early.
Well, I'm definitely going for her, to be honest I want her Saber version because I have Carmilla as main Assassin already, but she would be a nice addition to my Chaldea.
Is she good with Robin Hood ?
while she can help Robin hood with his NP gain and generate some crit stars, that all she can do. What you really want for robin is a servant that is able to poison enemies so that robins NP can do large amounts of damage.
luckily there will be a 3 star assassin down the road that provides a poison debuff on enemies for Robin.
Otherwise, she can work with him but there are better servants to use
Best 4* Assassin. ❤
Tamamo has a new best friend! Also like most schmucks I’m lacking in the assassins department so I’m very grateful that she is a welfare servant!
She is good with emiya? with his deck of arts cards and his skills after the strengthening quests?
He's okay because of the 3 arts cards, but his Buster NP means less NP spam since it can't cause an Arts chain with the rest of the team.
So when the event is over so is the Assassin version?
I mean you do not get to use the Assassin version outside of the event?
Clear room 504 and you get her permanently.
When you clear the quest in Room 504 you get your first copy of her, which just makes your current 'Limited' version permanent
The other 4 copies are obtained through the mission system for this event
If I leveled her up now, will her level revert back when i get the first copy of her at room 504?
You need to beat room 504 to make her permanent in your team (level, ascensions etc included). You can only get the ascension items and extra copies (for NP strenghtening) in this event only.
Still new to the game, know a decent amount, but how do you keep ryougi shiki - Assassin, because it says for a limited time. is there a way?
how do you make shiki permanent ? By completing all missions or by playing through the event ?
You can by doing the event - you need to clear a certain mission reward to get a door open i thinks it was around door 500 - 504, one of the 4 doors in 500 will give you Shiki Assassin Permanent unless it the 400- 404 door one of those 4 doors in 400.
Hope these help you and boost your confident to get her :)
Good luck and have fun.
is it worth rolling in this banner i have 60 quartz (also i am kinda saving for jalter and stuff to come much later like raiko etc) so is it worth rolling in this banner once ?
The Ryougi Shiki in the banner is not the same as this one.
As for rolling for her, is your guess. She doesnt have the greatest DPS but her AOE instant death NP and her AOE Deathresist down are pretty good.
Will the sharp knives stay in our items list after the event or will they disappear like bottles, cats and ice cream? 😳
Just like other welfare ascension materials, they will stay in your items. Only the currencies would disappear.
I'm seeing good crit synergy with Nursery Rhyme. Have Hans rounding off the team as support. I'm about it.
Did a new member write the analysis of Shiki? It looks to be a lot more detailed than the other ones.
Nah i wrote her and i'm definitely not a new member lol. We are just trying out new writing style and format and Shiki Assassin is the first prototype to see if people like it. Then we will be applying the new style / further improve it and create a better template for Servants in the future, as well as revamping the old pages
anyone know whats the condition to keep her after the event end?? really want to up her level but scare that it will go to waste after the event end
It is quite easy to reach room 504, all you have to do is keep on unlocking rooms and then you will have her permanent therefore it is safe to say you can level the temporarily one until you make it permanent.
This was a great event! Needed an Assassin plus the free quarts that comes with the bond levels.
Ryougi Shiki has been fitting in really well in both an Arts team of David and Tamamo no Mae, as well as my Quick team of Okita and Hassan. In either team I have had her fire off her NP three rounds in a row on more than one occasion. She does crit-charging very well, though better in a Quick team, and she benefits from the Arts chain and loading Tamamo offers.
All in all, she is proving to be a fantastic addition to the game.
What happens if you have Shiki but not able to level her up before her last ascension? Will that mean she stuck with whatever level she can ascend too?
As long as you acquire all ascension materials from the event and unlock her permanently at room 504 you can level/ascend her at your leisure.
SO I’m really debating I should keep her or Carmilla as my main assassin. I use Okita 100% of the time because I just love her too much, but I’m not sure who would be better on a team with her. Any help? I also have Hans on my team most of the time for the buffs.
I think she is great main assassin, and I also use Okita with her as much as possible. I have no issues with her star generation, and I've been able to get Quick, Arts, AQQ, or Brave chains 9 turns out 10 as part of my quick team. Okita and Ryougi have been so great at crit-charging their NPs, between the two of them, I've used one NP a round for 5-7 rounds, as they tend to give the other a lot of stars.
I need to level my Hans to get his healing ability to help sustain the deadly ladies.
