Overview

“Wait, I’m not a weapon, I’m the captain!”

The notorious leader of the Argonauts, Jason, is the Saber in the fourth anniversary bronze Servant batch. He is a joke Servant in many ways, and several of his animations involve the other Argonauts literally throwing Jason at the enemy. His skillset, too, is more joke than practical, mostly consisting of weak support and utility effects, but Jason does have some actual value when supporting Argonauts specifically, and Masters who like him can find ways to make use of him.

Conquering the Sea with Friends is the centerpiece of Jason’s kit, allowing him to support Argonaut allies. Even with this skill in effect, Jason’s supportive value is not especially high, but given his low cost, he can still be valuable in these contexts. Inspiration at Death's Door is also a generally-useful supportive tool, as targeted Evade and Star Gather Up buffs are both relatively rare. Once Altria Caster releases, Jason can also loop his AoE Arts Noble Phantasm,  Astrápste Argo , as well, although the conditions for doing so are tight and his damage is low. AoE Arts Sabers who can loop their Noble Phantasms are rare, however, so despite his limitations, Jason has some value in this role.

While Jason’s supportive tools are decent when supporting Argonauts, they are rather lacking outside of those contexts. All of his supportive effects are weak or limited in use in various ways, which limits his appeal as a cheap supportive Servant. Furthermore, Argonauts make up a relatively small pool of Servants, and not all of them benefit much from Jason’s Argonaut buffs, meaning his ideal support case is pretty rare. Jason also has very low damage output, which can be a problem in situations where Jason needs to contribute damage, or, eventually, when trying to clear content by looping his Noble Phantasm.

Jason is, seemingly by design, a deeply flawed Servant. Despite those flaws, though, he has clear cases where he’s worth bringing. Furthermore, AoE Arts Sabers are surprisingly rare, and Jason is valuable if only for his accessibility. Despite his weaknesses, Jason has a defined role and serves in that role well enough, making him a worthwhile investment for Masters looking for a new Servant to raise.

Strengths

Decent Support for Argonauts

When supporting Argonauts, Jason brings NP charge, critical attack enabling tools, some defense, and some damage boosts. Servants like Heracles, who have the potential for powerful critical attacks but have difficulty accessing that power, can benefit from Jason’s supportive abilities. Additionally, as Jason is a 1* Servant, he adds little to team cost and is likely to die quickly, so the opportunity cost of bringing Jason is low.

Rare Utility

Inspiration at Death's Door provides two rare forms of utility: a targeted Evade buff and a targeted Star Gather Up buff. The Star Gather Up buff is enough to let Berserkers or Avengers gain access to critical attacks, which may make Jason useful to those Servants.

Loop Potential

Jason has just enough NP gain on his Noble Phantasm that he can loop with the help of Altria Caster. The conditions for doing so are tight, and he may struggle to kill enemies even when properly enabled, but he can be useful for farming certain Lancer-centric enemy setups as a result.

Weaknesses

Weak Support Effects

Each of Jason’s support effects is weakened in at least one way relative to typical effects of their type. The Desired Argon Coin only removes one debuff, rather than all debuffs. Both effects on Inspiration at Death's Door only last for a turn, and the Evade buff also only lasts for one hit. Conquering the Sea with Friends is, of course, limited primarily to Argonaut Servants. Together, this means Jason’s support functionality is somewhat disappointing in practice.

Limited Support Niche

Argonauts represent a fairly small pool of Servants, and few of the Argonauts fully benefit from all of the support Jason brings. Jason needs to be supporting Argonauts in order for his supportive value to be reasonably powerful, but that necessarily limits his use cases to a small handful of teams.

Very Low Damage

Due in part to his supportive lean, Jason’s damage output is very low. This is not a problem when using Jason supportively, but it can interfere with his ability to farm or clear content as a damage-dealer.

Conquering the Sea with Friends is central to Jason’s ability to support Argonauts, and the NP charge effect scales with level, so this skill should be leveled first. Inspiration at Death's Door’s star gather effect scales with level, and the skill needs to reach high levels in order to let Berserkers consistently gain access to critical attacks, so it should be leveled second. The Desired Argon Coin gains the least from levels and can be saved for last. For Masters who plan to use Jason primarily in a supportive capacity, it is worth taking all three skills to max level in order to gain the full benefit of Jason’s support. For Masters who plan to use Jason primarily for his AoE Arts Noble Phantasm, Conquering the Sea with Friends should still be taken to max level in order to maximize Jason’s damage, but the other skills can be left at lower levels.

  • The Desired Argon Coin provides a small heal and removes a single defensive debuff from an ally. This is not a powerful defensive tool, but it can be nice on occasion, and it’s on a short enough cooldown that Jason can use it freely.
  • Inspiration at Death's Door is Jason’s strongest utility tool that doesn’t require him to be supporting Argonauts. Targeted Evade skills are always nice for letting an ally avoid a Noble Phantasm, although this skill is limited to both one attack and one turn, making it difficult to time and easy to waste. More importantly, the skill also has a targeted star gather effect, letting allies who would normally struggle to gain access to critical attacks do so more easily.
  • Conquering the Sea with Friends is Jason’s Argonaut buff. The skill provides a small attack boost to everyone regardless, but most of the value is limited to Argonauts. The skill provides an NP charge, which can help Argonaut allies gain access to their Noble Phantasms, and it also supports critical damage a little bit. Even when supporting Argonauts, this isn’t a hugely powerful skill, but it’s nice enough to be worth using.

Craft Essence Recommendation

Target Focus Craft Essences are great for Jason, as they let him take a hit for his allies and potentially die off quickly to make way for another support Servant. Passive Star Generation and Critical Star Gain Craft Essences can also be useful to support allies’ critical attacks. When Jason is used as a damage-dealer, NP Damage Up and Arts Performance Up Craft Essences are useful for increasing his damage.

  • GUDAGUDA Poster Girl / Outrage: These CEs draw enemy fire to Jason, letting him protect the team and making him more likely to die off quickly.
  • A Fragment of 2030 / His Rightful Place / Meeting of the Heirs: These CEs let Jason provide critical stars each turn. A Fragment of 2030 provides the most stars, while His Rightful Place can help Jason gain access to his NP, and Meeting of the Heirs increases Jason’s Arts Performance and NP gain.
  • Golden Captures the Carp / Crowning Beauty, Greater Glory: These CEs provide critical stars as soon as Jason enters the field, letting him quickly enable powerful critical attacks for allies, especially if those allies are also Argonauts.
  • The Black Grail / Heaven’s Feel: These CEs provide the largest overall boost to Jason’s damage output, making them valuable when Jason is used in a damage-dealing capacity. It is important to ensure Jason’s craft essences are also leveled as high as possible, as his low base attack means he benefits heavily from CEs that provide extra attack stats.
  • Formal Craft / Projection / Painting Summer / Mark on a Smiling Face: These CEs boost Jason’s Arts Performance, increasing both his damage and his NP gain. Painting Summer also gives Jason starting NP charge, which may make it easier for him to loop his Noble Phantasm.
