After Lostbelt 5 skipped Zeus, Lostbelt 6 returns to the trend of giving us the Lostbelt’s monarch—albeit surprisingly early this time around. Morgan, like Arjuna Alter before her, is an AoE SSR Berserker, which means she has massive competition right out of the gate. Unfortunately, she doesn’t quite live up to the reputation being a monarch implies. Morgan has a lot of things going for her, from a range of utility to tools, to an NP with bonus damage against two separate niches, to a 50% battery, but her damage output is closer to Raikou’s than to Arjuna’s, and, while I think Morgan ultimately comes out ahead of Raikou, it’s not at all a clear victory. She’s a reasonably strong Servant, and if you like her, she’ll do well for you, but she’s an easy skip otherwise—for all the complexity of her kit, she doesn’t actually bring much new value to the table.

Morgan is only underwhelming in the context of her competition. She is, I think, better than Raikou in the current environment, but Raikou—despite not exactly being a top-notch Servant—still has her own advantages. AA, meanwhile, is so wildly powerful he overshadows Morgan almost completely. And that’s all without addressing the fact that Buster is strongly disfavored in the game as it currently stands.
That said, typical Buster clears nowadays typically involve some degree of stall, and Morgan is well-positioned to support those types of strategies. She has a lot of utility and plays nicely with Buster’s best current supports (setting aside Himiko shenanigans). She should be able to clear hard content pretty reliably, and she can farm, too, with a little creativity and some battery help. If you’re looking for a paradigm-shiftingly-powerful Servant like the other monarchs were at release (yes, even Ivan was remarkable for a brief time), Morgan is probably a disappointment, but she’s a reasonably strong Servant in her own right. She has some neat tools, and anyone who likes her enough to pull will find themselves with a solid Buster point Servant who can get the job done.
