◆ New Action
“Link” with Allies to Fight Enemies Together
By approaching an ally Servant, you can enter the “Link” state and share class characteristics. The class characteristics of many allies gathered become stronger, so Link up to face enemies.
Also by activating a “Rush” attack in the Link state, ally Servants will attack alongside you.
“Back Attack” to Deal Big Damage
By attacking an enemy Servant from the back, you can deal a lot of damage. Also, Assassin class Servants have even greater Back Attack power than the other classes.
Aim to actively use Back Attacks through Active Skills that confine the enemy and by cooperating with allies.
Break through the Enemy’s “Strategy”
Enemies will use attacks that make use of various “strategies” on the battlefield. If their strategies are successful, you will be at a disavantage, and occasionally may be defeated, so always fight while paying attention to the enemy’s movements.
—Save the Master
Find the real Lancelot from among the enemies mimicked by Lancelot, and rescue the Master. During the Master’s abduction, Code Casts and Command Seals cannot be used. Additionally, if you fail to rescue the Master, you will be defeated, so be sure to save them quickly.
—Break the Jamming
Through the enemy’s jamming, map information will become unavailable to check. Attack the plant that is causing the jamming before your allies are hit with a surprise attack.
—Find Robin Hood, Who Can Become Invisible
Robin Hood, whose Noble Phantasm “No Face May King: Faceless King” lets him become invisible, swoops down to attack. You will be able to sense him as he draws near, so find Robin Hood and defeat him.
In addition to Servants, various “enemies” will also be summoned into SE.RA.PH as threats that block your path.
—Attack Program: A cyber body created in SE.RA.PH. It attacks in accordance with its orders.
—Skeleton Soldier: The immortal corps (Athanaton) Darius III used while alive became a Noble Phantasm and are summoned as soldiers that fight alongside the king.
—The King’s Troops: Strong soldiers loyal to Iskandar summoned by Iskandar’s Noble Phantasm “Ionioi Hetairoi: Army of the King.”
