Farming tier list. As a traditional practice in gacha games, FGO requires players to grind stages repeatedly to acquire resources like EXP cards and ascension materials to unlock their servants’ maximum potential. This will include the daily farming quests located in Chaldea Gate, Free quests, Event farming quests (with lottery farming quests being the fan-favorite as it yields a surplus of essential materials) with the occassional Raid quests containing a singular Raid boss providing a stage for ST servants to shine. In this list, we will rank each servant based on how well they perform based on their skill kit using on the attributes or class they possess that make them the superior farming choice that can clear waves per turn.

Space Ishtar – Being able to freely switch the typing of her formidable NP – Edin Shugurra Quasar allows her to synergize well with any team, coupled with naturally high damage output (thanks to multiple buffs by her own skill set and 1.1x damage modifier courtesy of her class ) and an instant 50% NP charge makes her top tier. Well, not at the very top of the FGO tier list, but a close second place. Arjuna (Alter) – AoE Buster NP serving with a unique gimmick, allowing him to deal godly damage (pun intended) directly proportional to the number of debuffs stacked on enemies with his 1st skill. His powerful NP – Mahapralaya further reduce enemies’ resistance to any attacks of Buster type. His 2nd skill bolsters his Buster face cards critical damage to finish off any singular tough enemies. Leonardo Da Vinci (Rider) – Her 3rd skill casts a party-wise NP overcharge (along it is a nice little 10% NP charge), while her AoE NP – Beautiful Journey deals significant damage, it also provides a party-wide 20% NP charge. To top it all off, her 1st skill makes her NP spammable as it provides a 20% self-charge for 3 turns consecutively. All in all, a compact NP battery that can deal serious damage if needed. Sakata Kintoki – A ST NP servant with an impressive 50% NP charge, excellent at dealing with singular mobs with high HP in farming stages in events or raid-boss style farming stage (seen in Lady Reine’s Case File Events and Rashomon for instance). Sima Yi (Queens) – She offers a party-wide 10% NP charge and a targetable 20% NP charge to an ally. Comes with a targetable invincibility buff that can withstand two hits for 3 turns with her 3rd skill. Her NP – Unspoken Formation offers a unique buff to your allies that negates any class disadvantage to your allies, meaning your Lancer won’t take super-effective damage from a saber. Tamamo-no-Mae – Her Skill Cooldown Reduction by 1 makes her beloved (along with her floof). She provides this via her NP – Eightfold Blessing of Amaterasu, along with continuous healing and decent party-wide NP charge. She functions well in an Arts team as her 3rd skill provides an Arts damage-up buff. Her 1st skill stalls enemies by decreasing their NP charge by 1. She’s a very good team support that provides consistent healing by NP looping, her NP is also invaluable as it can reduce the skill cooldown of your allies by 1, which is a rare commodity . Himiko – A support servant that provides one of the best Buster performance buffs to her fellow allies with her NP – Eternal Mirror that Models the Celestial Bodies, alongside the appreciated NP overcharge 2 stages. Her skill kit is self-sufficient as it cranks up critical damage output for her regular Buster cards, coupled with the imperative crit star generation buff bestowed upon her allies to secure a constant source of critical stars. True to her lore, she comes with the anti-demonic beast quirk and is ideal for a demonic class of servants/bosses. Zhuge Liang (El-Melloi II) – The staple of any team, his skillset provides an abundance of utility, with the NP charge to your ally servants (50% to a single servant, 20% to every servant) along with valuable damage and defense buffs. To add to his arsenal, his NP has a high chance to disable enemies for a turn by stunning them with the added advantage of lowering their NP gauge by 1. Perfect for any tough challenge quests. Players commonly bring along two for farming (one from a support servant, the other one under the player’s ownership). Achilles – The best Rider-class AoE damage dealer in this roster, suitable for farming and high-end difficulty quests. He can also act as a makeshift defense thanks to his taunt skill that directs all attacks toward him for one turn. Altria Pendragon – Deals impressive AoE damage, and while she may not perform much in the current meta, she is poised to receive multiple game-changing buffs in the future that make her absolutely top tier. Also a bonus point for being the poster girl. Enkidu – His skill set makes him a particularly excellent ST damage dealer that can fare well against all kinds of bulky foes in Challenge Quests, particularly enemies with the Divine trait as his NP stuns them. He has high sustainability as one of his skills can heal a whopping 10000 HP and debuff removal to keep him healthy. He can amplify his Buster/Quick/Arts damage output with his skill. Just like Jack the Ripper, his high hit counts allow him to support the team by generating a surplus amount of critical stars. Jack The Ripper – A very powerful ST damage dealer with good NP gain, ideal for taking down bulky foes and is more effective on females – true to her lore. Her high hit counts can indirectly support the party by generating an enormous amount of critical stars. In challenge quests, she can also dispel buffs from a tough enemy. Lastly, she can also serve as a healer thanks to her skill that restores a chunk of HP to an ally. Xuanzang Sanzang – A strong ST damage dealer that can self-charge NP by a whopping 80% while buffing allies to let them gain NP more easily. Her skill can taunt enemies and make her a punching bag. Ideal for content with a tough Assassin boss. francis drake – A great AoE damage dealer ideal for farming situations thanks to her self-charge NP by 50%. Her skill offers good NP damage and Attack buffs to offensively support allies. Mordred – Deals high AoE damage thanks to self-buffs her skill kit provides. Ideal for farming situations, her skill can generate critical stars on the spot to support the team. In the future, Artoria is the superior option but nevertheless, she is still good in her own right. Bradamante – An AoE damage dealer primarily used for farming content, Even in hard content, any team appreciates the 60% chance to stun with her NP, as well as 20% NP charge and debuff removal to an ally as support. Jeanne D’Arc – A bulky supporter thanks to her class as a ruler. Her NP provides a party-wide invincibility and is instrumental for a lot of challenge quests that require endurance.
