Overview

"Your reliable Fox Shrine Maiden, Caster, has now arrived~"

After cutting off eight of her nine tails in atonement, the Heian Huli Tamamo-no-Mae now devotes herself to supporting good-intentioned and fortunate Masters with her cutting wit and foxy charm. Reflecting her self-styled devotion theme, this classy courtesan caster is the premier Arts-focused support who enables both skill-spamming strategies and high NP uptime.

Tamamo's main support comes from her strong Arts Buff skill Fox Wedding, and her NP that grants the team both a sizable NP charge, and reduces their skill cooldowns. These unique properties make her fantastic for consistent Arts-based NP teams, and after her Rank-up her Curse's teamwide NP damage buff only further solidifies her role as a key Arts support. Meanwhile, Tamamo's strong NP drain, teamwide heals, and strong self-defense buff make her invaluable in defensive strategies especially in combination with the lowered skill cooldowns and NP charge from her NP.

Unfortunately, the Sun Goddess doesn't particularly shine outside of Arts teams. Since Tamamo's NP charging potential is tied to her NP and isn’t available on-demand, her average NP gain makes her very reliant on Arts chains and even allied NP charging skills to quickly fill up her NP gauge and keep NP chains going. Furthermore, outside of Arts compositions, Tamamo's support is also much less effective as her on-demand buffs are rather specific and the bulk of her general support lies locked away in an NP that is otherwise more difficult to charge. For farming in particular this tends to lock her to supporting Arts Looping teams over traditional skill-based on-demand NP charging teams.

On the whole, Tamamo's kit is fantastic for supporting the likes of challenging content and Arts NP looping teams. While Tamamo is mainly reliant on Arts team compositions, her reliable Arts support for consistent NP's and skill usage is unparalleled and makes this devoted fox maiden a keeper for the long game for any Arts fanatic.

Strengths

High Uptime on Skills and NP 

In an Arts team, Tamamo can create a virtuous cycle of consistent NP's and skill activations through her own NP and Arts chains. Paired up with a teammate who can provide NP charging through skills, Tamamo's NP usage potential increases even further due the synergy between lowered cooldowns on NP charging skills, and the NP charge on her NP. In addition to increased NP uptime, the lowered skill cooldowns mean their buffs have a higher uptime as well.

Amazing Offensive Arts Support

 Fox Wedding's dedicated buff not only provides a power spike to Arts-based DPS servants, but the 5-turn CD at max results in a fantastic uptime if combined with Tamamo's own NP. Post-Rank Up, Tamamo's Curse skill will also provide the team with a sizable NP damage buff. Even Tamamo's bond CE provides a useful 15% teamwide Arts buff, which synergizes nicely in native Arts teams. Overall, Tamamo's powerful and long-lasting Arts buffs make her fantastic for boss fights or loop-based NP farming.

Excellent Stalling Potential

Tamamo's combination of healing, guaranteed NP reduction, and up to 60% self-defense buff (30% for three turns) makes her excellent at surviving normal attacks all the while draining and stalling bosses. Contrary to her frail appearance, Tamamo's defensive bulk allows her to participate even with class disadvantage if paired with a proper damage dealer.

Weaknesses

Average NP Gain 

Tamamo's uneven hit counts and low base np gain result in average NP gain on her Arts cards, and subpar NP gain otherwise. Without Arts chains or allied NP charges, it's difficult for her to take advantage of her own NP to charge and reduce skill cooldowns as often as possible.

Arts Niche Only

This fox's final destination is on an Arts team. Although her NP is almost universally useful, her dedicated Arts buff and reliance on Arts chains means she functions best on an Arts team, compared to other supports who have better card type flexibility.

Somewhat NP Reliant

A sizable amount of Tamamo's team support comes from her NP. Her lack of on-demand NP charge pushes her mainly towards survival-based challenging content or loop-based Arts NP farming. While her NP's "cooldown" is generally lower than normal skill cooldowns, achieving this is heavily reliant on team composition.

Average Team Survivability 

Despite her own self-defense buff, Tamamo's heals and stalling often requires additional teamwide damage reduction to keep everyone afloat in challenging content. Although Tamamo can heal with both her NP and Fox Wedding, Fox Wedding has the opportunity cost of sometimes having to choose between different targets to make full use of its Arts buff and its healing.

Level Up Skill Recommendation

Although a fair amount of Tamamo's support comes from her NP, lowering the cooldowns of Tamamo's active skills will improve her consistency immensely in combination with her NP's skill cooldown reduction. Furthermore, maxing Fox Wedding as soon as possible is essential for unlocking her full Arts support capability. With all her skills maxed, Tamamo will be able to keep up her Arts buff and stall abilities with high uptime.

  • Once Curse EX reaches level 10, its guaranteed NP drain makes Tamamo far more consistent in stalling strategies both in terms of hit chance and having the cooldown finished before the next NP launches. Post-Rank Up, Curse gains a teamwide NP damage buff that allows her teammates to complete quests even quicker and scales very well for Arts farming. Max this second as her second best on-demand utility.
  • While Morph A's defense buff is useful, its additional 30% one-turn defense buff doesn't scale with levels and is mainly used on pinch turns. Although at max value it can make her almost invulnerable with defense-stacking strategies, it does not yield as much direct benefit to the team. The overall higher impact of Curse and Fox Wedding for the team make them greater priorities over Morph, but it is worth raising Morph to at least level 6 for the cooldown reduction.
  • Fox Wedding EX is Tamamo's signature buff, and can double as a stabilizing heal after its upgrade. The high value 3-turn buff duration cements her as the premier support for maximizing Arts Servants' damage as well as massively boosting their NP Generation on their Arts cards. Max this first to increase its strength and to lower its downtime.

Craft Essence Recommendation

As an NP-reliant support Servant, Tamamo wants to build up her NP as soon and often as possible. While Starting NP Gauge will work great for jump starting her NP cycles, Craft Essences that allow her to build full gauge faster are invaluable for longer battles. For compositions with a supplementary NP charge support or in "Loop farming" strategies, Masters can use other Craft Essences better suited to the composition like Passive NP Gauge Per Turn or Passive Star Generation Per Turn.

  • Prisma Cosmos: 8% per turn may not seem like much, but passive NP generation is ideal for charging Tamamo’s NP without having to make use of her mediocre Arts cards. The extra gauge immensely aids her consistency and will surpass Starting NP Gauge in longer fights.

  • A Fragment of 2030/His Rightful Place/Chocolatier: A Fragment of 2030 is a staple offensive support CE that enables the Critical Arts team archetype which Tamamo can support quite well too. For fewer stars per turn, His Rightful Place provides starting NP gauge instead, while Cholocatier improves her own Arts cards.

  • Kaleidoscope/Little Halloween Devil/Magical Girl of Sapphire: Kaleidoscope's potential for a Turn 1 NP is fantastic for instantly getting the fox-ball rolling on longer/more challenging quests. Petite Halloween Devil and Magical Girl of Sapphire instead trade some starting gauge for more active NP gain.

  • Devilish Bodhisattva: Jumpstarting Tamamo's NP refund for her allies can be situationally useful. Highly useful if Masters lack a Kaleidoscope for example.

  • Tamamo's Fan Club: Tamamo's Bond CE provides a permanent 15% Arts buff so long as she is on the field. This benefits both the NP generation and offense directly for NP Looping teams, while its permanent duration is fantastic for long content.

Gameplay Tips

Using Tamamo's NP last in NP chains greatly increases the total NP gained through overcharge for everyone. Masters who Sync NP uses will often be rewarded with even less NP downtime.
