It's kinda hard to take Caster's dumbass threats seriously when Berserker, Gilgamesh and even Archer and Lancer could have easily dispatched her if they ever felt like it.
>>
>this war is almost over!
>one servant dead
ok
>>
Caster and Kuzuki are the shittiest antagonists in FSN; they're impossible to take seriously when they only reason they don't insta-lose is the other antagonists not giving a shit and Archer keeping Caster alive to abuse her Rule Break.
>>
>>119206659
Casters aren't really meant to ever accomplish anything in particular in the story, they're mostly just there to serve as stepping stones.
>>
>>119207000
>not playing Hard Mode
>>
Caster with full control over Saber would be really strong and genuinely stand a good chance of winning the war. She's just jumping the gun a bit since she hasn't managed to do that yet.
>>
>>119207154
Saber can't defeat Gilgamesh without Avalon.
>>
>>119207260
Well Gil is a nigh-impassable barrier for pretty much everyone unless he decides to be stupid. Pretty sure Caster didn't know about him at that point though.

>unless he decides to be stupid
Even retard-mode Gil can easily kill Caster
>>
>>119206659
Why would anyone with any desire to win the Grailbowl deliberately summon a Caster?
>>
Caster always spoke much bigger than her competancy and power
>>
>>119207000
The Caster class is for waifus, not for fightan.
>>
>>119207492
Why would anyone summon the Witch of Betrayal and waste his command spells?
That's the sort of retard who summons Caster
>>
>>119207582
Did he know who Caster was I forget
>>
>>119207492
Maybe he didn't do it deliberately and the Grail just gave him one
Would explain why he was such a dick to her too
>>
>>119207638
Since he used a catalyst, it is safe to assume he did. He was probably overtaken by his boner for her. It is a VERY justified boner though.
>>
>>119207638
>>119207705
He used Literature from Colchis as a catalyst to summon her
>>
>>119207638
We know almost nothing of her Master besides he was from the Mage's Association, she made him use his command seals, and she killed him afterwards.
>>119207705
I think if a Mage Association person was joining the HGW, he would know which catalyst he was using
>>
>>119206810
Everyone did try to go to Ryuudou Temple but Assassin stopped them, and Caster only goes to the Church while she has Saber with her, which is a considerable threat to anyone but Berserker
>>
Does Caster need to waste a command seal to get Saber to do ANYTHING? So far she had to use one to force her to do a low level attack against essentially a non-threat (Rin). Seeing she only gets 3 (2 left) she really save those to force her to exacliblast shit twice.
>>
>>119207638
>>119207705
He was perfectly aware of which Heroic Spirit he was summoning. The guy was just an idiot.
>>
>>119207818
No one said it was a good plan.
>>
>>119207725
Someone in a previous thread noted the catalyst looked like the Golden Fleece, in which case the summoner might've been going for Jason instead.
>>
>>119207887
Well if that is true, that is god damn hilarious.
>>
>>119207803
I always wondered how Assassin could even slow Berserker down. He shouldn't have anything that can get past God Hand.
>>
Why is Kotomine so obsessed with not letting people know he has a Servant? If he cared he could have summoned Lancer and killed Caster fairly easily.
>>
>>119207818
actually she probably should use the last one to force her to suicide, otherwise as soon as she spends it saber is going to have her sword going for her.
>>
What would have happened if Kirei had summoned Medea?
>>
>>119207887
That's a retcon than.
>>
love this banter
>>
>>119207991
I think Nasu said it was help from Caster, it turned into a stamina battle that wouldn't really go either way too soon so Ilya just went home
>>
>>119207991
Tsubame Gaishi isn't an NP but is simply a technique that nears true magic. When Assassin swings his sword, three strikes HAVE to complete regardless of whether or not they can cut what they hit. If the object can't be cut, it gets pushed back.
>>
>>119208001
Because he has only 1 command spell left and Cu's first action would be impaling Kotomine.
The command spells on the arm aren't "bound" to Cu and kinda useless for him
>>
>>119207562
Isn't that just Medea and Gilles?
>>
>>119207887
Is that a harem behind him? Maybe the guy knew who he was summoning after all.
>>
>>119207803
>a considerable threat to anyone but Berserker
Caster Saber could have been defeated by fucking Lancer if Kotomine gave a shit.
>>
>>119208123
If he can use a command seal to transform the black keys into origin bullet shields, logically he should be able to use one spare command seal to assign another spare command seal to cu.
>>
>>119208159
Who but Berserker and Gilgamesh couldn't be defeated by Lancer if Kotomine gave a shit?
Fucking spammable NPs
>>
>>119207000
Technically only the three knight classes are supposed to make it to the end. The other four are just filler for the three families to abuse.
>>
>>119208018
Banter and betrayal obv. Loads of it.
>>
>>119208227
He only uses the pure magical energy in the command spells.
I think that needs a special incantation to "transfer" them that he doesn't know.
Otherwise he would have done so.
Or I could be completly wrong.
>>
>>119208258
Lancer actualy has a chance against Berserker.
And Gil is the King of Jobbers.
>>
>>119208304
I thought the whole point of the prayer written in blood was that it was the transfer spell.
>>
>>119208346
Lancer has a chance with his runes, but that also requires him not having a command seal fucking him over for the entire war.
>>
>>119208346
Lancer has a chance to kill Berserker ONCE. By abusing runes.
>>
What's the difference between the Lesser Grail and the Greater Grail?

Why didn't Gil save Kirei when skellingtons attack? I thought they're butt buddies.
>>
>>119208400
Gay Bulge is one kill, and his various runes can give him several more.
>>
>>119208354
Isn't that just the transfer to another Overseer?
>>119208400
Reread the interview
>Lancer can use his runes and Noble Phantasm together to temporarily raise the rank to A, but it'd still be a very disadvantageous fight but "one with some chances".
That isn't reffering to once
>>
>>119208265
Berserker could wipe the floor with them all day nigga you crazy. That goes for both Hercules and Lancelot. They only get rekt due to having to job for stupid plot reasons.
>>
>>119208428
>What's the difference between the Lesser Grail and the Greater Grail?
The Lesser Grail is the key to the Greater Grail.

>Why didn't Gil save Kirei when skellingtons attack? I thought they're butt buddies.
He wasn't around, Kirei can handle it and Gil doesn't really care about him that much.

Read the VN, chump.

>>119208428
Gil doesn't have friends, just people he allows to exist near him for extended periods of time. His one friend died long ago.
>>
>>119208432
>That isn't reffering to once
Based on what??
Some chances to make a kill. That's the whole idea revolving around raising Gae Bolg to A. He doesn't have any other A ranked NP to get around Godhand and Nasu's said nothing about Lancer having a rune OP enough to conceptually neutralize resurrection.
>>
>>119208490
The grail war was designed so that the three knight classes, meant for the three families, would have a big advantage. Shit got fucked over time, but it was never meant to be a fair battle.
>>
>>119207991
>He shouldn't have anything that can get past God Hand.
He doesn't have to get past godhand or kill him in order to slow Herc down. He just kept pushing him down the stairs over and over again when he got back up.

He can't kill herc, but he can still physically hit him and knock him back.
>>
>>119208563
If Rider is such a strong class then why did she get BTFO by Kuzuki?
>>
Did ANY of the summoned Archers EVER actually have a bow as their NP?
>>
>>119208630
Rider isn't a knight class.
>>
>>119208630
This post is so stupid I don't even know where to start.
>>
So commie or Hatsuyuki?
>>
>>119208539
Because he has atleast 1 sure kill against Berserker with Gae Bolg.
Additionaly his rune-magecraft qualifies him for the Caster-class.
Than there's the question how many lives Gae Bolg melee and range take each.
than how many lives he can take with different spells.
It's an uphill battle but he has "some" chance as Nasu said
>>
>>119208636
Yes, Hercules does. The most powerful bow in the Nasuverse.
>>
>>119208636
Yes, Robin hood
>>
>>119208636
In the HGW? No.
In spin-offs? Yes.
>>
>>119208636
EMIYA kind of counts since Broken Phantasms are his real strength. If you want to count Extra you have Robin Hood.
>>
>>119208636
Robin Hood does.
>>
>>119208708
>than how many lives he can take with different spells.
Yeah, you have no clue what you're talking about.
>>
>>119208738
The bow is just a projected bow, it's not his NP.
I guess it could technically be considered a part of his NP like everything else he uses.
>>
>>119208713
>Prisma.
Nine Lives is a style

If Rin is a slut for old men and Sakura is a slut for worms then what's Saber slut for?
>>
>>119208819
Food

If that counts then I'm sure Gilgamesh has some kind of bow stored in his vault somewhere

The whole point is that Caster doesn't NEED to kill the other Servants to obtain the Grail.
>>
>>119208887
Is it a waste to use a Command Seal to make a Servant have sex with you?
>>
>>119208858
The items taken out of the King's vault aren't a part of the Gate of Babylon.
Many of them are NPs unto themselves, though.
Those things projected by UBW could be considered to be a part of UBW.
>>
>>119208563
If that's the case, shouldn't they have secured a way that would guarantee them to summon a servant of said classes? Because Makiri got Berserker then Rider, Einzbern failed to keep Saber and only Tohsaka kept Archer for both wars.
>>
How come archer doesn't just sit on a rooftop and spam nuke-arrows at people like he does in HA? He beat Saber when he did that shit. That seems like a much better fighting method than what he does in F/S.
>>
>>119208899
It's more that her wish doesn't require the complete grail. She just wants to be incarnated.

Na, I've seen worse uses (See Rin at the beginning of the novel)

Though you may as well go for slutty servants like Nero or F/Z Rider.
>>

>Einzbern failed to keep Saber
They purposefully summoned Berserker.
>>
>>119208945
Rin told him to do what she tells him to
>>
>>119208940
Third war was a huge mess that fucked up everything. There's a reason that the Einzeberns called in a ringer and Zouken sat back to observe.
>>
>>119208940
Most of those are cases of them just not giving a shit. Zouken had Kariya summon Berserker because he didn't really care about that war and just wanted to see the dude suffer. The Einzberns purposely summoned Herc as Berserker months before the 5th war started because they wanted to take his reason to keep him under control. Strategies changed in the later wars.
>>
>>119208927
Shinji would know.
>>
>>119208994
One could argue that maybe it was because they had no fucking clue where their Avalon went, but Heracles is a better Servant in any class anyway

No, they were fucking pissed about Kerry betraying them and just wanted a servant that wouldn't fuck them over.

Why would they do that if the 3 knightly classes are supposed to have an advantage?

Berserker was the better pick for Illya.

No, there are very specific stated reasons. They didn't summon Artoria in any of the other wars.

>>119209154
The fuck does that have to do with anything? There are other heroes that can be summoned as Saber. Like Hercules.
But they summoned him as Berserker.

>>119208945
He only "beat" Saber doing that because Shirou was there, and even then all he does is kill Shirou, not Saber. It's not a good strategy to just fire arrows from range at most servants since they'll just close in on you. Chiron tries doing what you're describing in Apocrypha and Saber just catches up to him fairly easily and gets into his range.

A master could also just use a command spell and wreck the archer as well if they were willing to take the risk like what Shirou and Saber end up doing anyway.

That's why I've never gotten into UBW too much. Caster is a shit tier villain. The whole 1st half of UBW is just the actual threats letting some retarded bitch run around and do all the workfor them, so boring.
>>
>>119209229
Classic Einzbern

>Their first option was to alter the system of the Greater Grail itself and summon a unique Avenger-class Servant. The Heroic Spirit would be Angra Mainyu, the reverse hero who bore the six billion curses of the world. Once brought to this world, this nameless figure – crowned as the ‘king of demons’, a living calamity made for carnage – would certainly slaughter all other Masters and Servants and allow them to activate the Greater Grail.
