>>
Then you use Assassin the way the class is meant to be used.
Gather intel. Lay low. Gank people when they're fighting each other, targetting masters exclusively.
You're only thoroughly fucked when it's the final 1v1 unless you managed to hide your identity all this time or just played your cards close and are currently helping the remaining Master find that pesky Assassin master.
>>
>>135534625
Assassin can't actually kill competent mages. Maybe if every master was Shiro tier, but against guys like Kirei, Tokiomi and Kiritsugu assassin can't do shit
>>
>>135534677
Good thing the most recent grail war was a bunch of stupid faggot teenagers and not people with actual battle experience.

Except Kotomine. He'd be difficult to kill.
>>
>>135534677
Hassan actually killed Kirei, he only survived because of the mud. Tokiomi and Kerry don't have such shit so if they don't see him coming they will get rekt.
Remember how Tokiomi died?

Well at least then you could just concede right away and live out the rest of your life, and save the other masters the trouble of having to kill you off to get it over with.

At least you didn't get Avenger.
>>
>>135536510
Actually, Avenger has good potential, assuming you're not an idiot. Remember, Avenger and Bazett found a way to kill pretty much every other servant except Berserker.
>>
>>135536915
Only because of Fragglerock.
>>
>>135536979
True, but smart use of Avesta would let him win against mostly everyone.
Servant almost kills Avenger -> Avesta -> servant is almost dead -> competent master kills enemy master. Fraga is unnecessary for such strategy.
You'd still have to figure out the powers of everyone else in the HGW, but he does have potential.
>>
>>135537144
What do you do if it instantly kills Avenger stone dead, though? You're fucked in that case if you don't have Fraggle.
>>
>>135535231
Apocalypse

>>135537144
>>135536915
Avenger doesn't have Avesta outside of Hollow.
He made himself stronger inside his fanfic
>>
>>135537239
That's why I said you need to not be an idiot. Fight like an Assassin, stay out of the fray, figure out how to get almost killed without actually dying and shit. HA Avenger should only fight when he knows he can't possibly lose.
>>135537292
Sure, original Avenger was absolute shit, no arguing with that.

Avenger doesn't have Avesta outside of Hollow? How much underpowered can he be?

>>135538433
He was quite literally just a normal human. It was biggest Einzberns fuck up to the date - and they made a lot of fuck ups.
>>
>>135538638
Their biggest fuckup was not focusing on making top tier handcrafted homunculi and selling them to select customers.
Instead they had to go for the Grail War like every other retard.

I always read these threads even though I know nothing about Type Moon just because I think the idea of servants and character classes is neat. Maybe I'll actually watch one of the anime or read one of the VNs/LNs one of these days.
>>
>>135540803
Do it . I just started watching F/SN and F/Z and its been a blast of a watch so far. The production values are simply amazing and I like most of the characters.
>>
>>135540697
So? Why bother. They could be the #1 seller of quality homunculi worldwide. With super posh shops in a few select locations worldwide, where you sit down with their local representative and describe in-depth what you expect and what you demand of their product.
And then, a month later you sign the EULA, take your homunculus' hand and take her home, while the Einzbern (c) representatives deliver the rest of the goods that come with the package you selected to your house.

Einzbern (c) - Quality Wives for Quality Gentlemen.
>>
>>135540876
>Why bother.
Muh root
>>
>>135540876
Because the Einzbern aren't people any more, they're all homunculus theirselves, trying to fulfill the purpose their creator assigned them.
They literally can't help going
>muh root

>>135540911
But they always fail so it's bad publicity.
>>
>>135540980

Third Sorcery and root and shit. The don't need anything else.
>>
>>135541030
He is though.
There are no human Einzberns anymore
>>
>>135541030
Yes, Acht is the castle's AI. Who happens to be in the body of a homunculus.
>>
>>135533837
It's the best class, it's just badly used.

In Zero the Assassin is used as a sacrificial lamb and then for a frontline charge by someone who didn't intend to win in the first place.

In Stay Night the False Assassin is used as a gate guard (and almost beats Saber head-on), while the True Assassin kills Lancer, Caster's Master, and only dies to Kotomine because of Grailmud cheatery.

In Extra everyone has straight-up cage matches with no subterfuge allowed and the Assassin still comes closest to killing the MC and their Servant.

In Apocrypha the Assassins are a wandering psycho and the owner of a floating motherbase, so no wonder they don't get shit done.

An actual Assassin, used as they're meant to be, would be a great pick for a Servant.

Because that's the only factor which is really relevant in whether or not you win, no matter how many Ex-rank cock-hardening ancillary skills the glossary claims you get.

On a semi-related subject, could Hugh Glass be eligible to be summoned as a Heroic Spirit? If so, he would make a great Berserker.
>>
>>135545850
Eh. He'd have Battle Continuation of a high rank, probably an NP where he revives with a boost to strength and endurance after being killed once.
He didn't actually kill either dude that'd left him, so yeah. He'd be comparatively good for a modern Servant but not amazing or high-tier.

He's too modern. End of WW1 is the cutoff for Heroic Spirits.

Before Extra: 20th century is the cutoff point for sure, no HS allowed past that!

WW1 is the cutoff point, definitely!

It's really whatever Nasu feels like whenever he writes something new.
>>
>>135548474
Eh. I feel as if it's other authors fucking around with the lore. Nasu supposedly signs off on it, but he probably glances at it while playing Dark Souls and says it's okay.
