Stat Ratings

Attack / HP Growth


Siegfried is a frequently put-down unit for various reasons, but he’s not unusable by any stretch of the imagination. Though his attack stat is bad for an SR Saber, it’s compensated for by his immense HP stat and decent durability skills. Furthermore, in the current state of the game Dragons are surprisingly common, with Wyverns occupying half of Orleans, Altria and Liz showing up in both dailies and events frequently and Fafnirs often being used as boss enemies in upcoming events.

Of course, he’s significantly outclassed by most of his competing Sabers for AOE NP damage. His showings versus Dragons are impressive nonetheless, he has better NP gain than most of his class and tries his best not to die, while competitors like Saber Alter can get knocked out by a single unlucky Berserker crit.


  • High base HP and some defensive-orientated skills make him rather durable.
  • Good NP gain owing to his Golden Rule skill.
  • Starting with his 3rd skill gives him good immediate power, and also allows him to unlock his full skills potential with just his 1st Ascension.
  • Excellent durability and offense versus enemies and Servants with the Dragon trait.


  • Outside of fighting Dragons, his damage output with both regular attacks and NP is weak.
  • Lack of any team support skills while also lacking many buffs of his own makes him reliant on team support to produce his worth.

Craft Essence Recommendation

  • Kaleidoscope, Imaginary Element: Allows for a very early NP, which is normally what you want from an AOE NP servant, though Sieg’s damage output isn’t much when compared to his competitors.
  • Limited / Zero Over, Verdant Sound of Destruction: A more aggressive CE option. Boosts the damage of most of Siegfried’s cards by a good sum, and is a better option for straightforward dragon killing should you not need an instant NP from Kaleidoscope.

Level Up Skill Recommendation

Siegfried's base skillset isn't particularly outstanding until his two major buffs in the future. As a Saber, he only has one main selling point over more prominent servants such as Saber Alter or Altera in that he is good at dealing with enemies with the Dragon trait, such as Kiyohime or Elizabeth Bathory, and thus his skill leveling order should focus mainly on improving his niche.

His best skill leveling order is 3 > 1 > 2. Dragon Slayer is most relevant to his identity, and in the future it is also the skill that is most relevant and important to his Noble Phantasm's power after the skill Rank Up. Golden Rule helps him quite nicely in charging his Noble Phantasm faster and being less reliant on Craft Essence like Kaleidoscope or The Imaginary Element. It also combos well with the future buff onto his NP (20% increased in NP generation for 3 turns after using it), allowing him to use his NP in quick succession. Disengage is most relevant in a hard battle, as debuff cleanse is a useful effect to help, and the heal is just a cherry on top. It is however not as integral to Siegfried's performance as the other two, and thus should be prioritized last.

Suggested Servant Synergies

  • Georgios: One of the fun “niche” combinations. Georgios’ NP forces the “Dragon” trait onto an enemy, while Siegfried’s third skill grants him up to 80% damage against dragons and 30% defense against dragons. Additionally, Siegfried’s NP does additional damage against dragons scaling with overcharge.

  • Edward Teach: Blackbeard has the skill “Voyager of the Storm”, which provides the multiplicative bonuses of up to 16% Atk up and NP damage up. When Siegfried receives his Rank Up quest that adds a Buster up effect to his Dragon Slayer skill, Voyager provides Siegfried with a one-stop shop for multiplicative damage bonuses, However, this synergy is still no slouch prior to the Rank Up quest. Additionally, both Servants can create Buster chains handily enough with their NP’s.

  • Hassan of the Cursed Arm: When you’re slaying Dragons, they are typically of the Rider class. Thus, Hassan can handily help Siegfried slay dragons with his class advantage while contributing with the best star generation in the game (prior to Jack) and stay safe with Protection from Wind (Protection from Arrows with Stargen up tacked on). The stars from Hassan’s Quick card and Dagger skill help Siegfried’s damage potential by allowing him to crit more consistently.
