True power of Archer (spoilers)

It's alright, we feel your pain. Noone wants to admit being gar for Berserker.

Come to think of it she would probably create something like what's in gil's vault. Splendid weapons without the fame or abilities.
The abilities are there... It's just they don't have name nor fame yet. :)

ya, exactly and neither can the abilities be used by arc...to do that she'd have to use that weapon throughout her lifetime and gain fame etc or be h4x like shirou/archer and download it...but, seriously who needs them when u have ur shinsou powers...shinsou beam FTW... :lol:

Yah but arcueid could totally just create some awesome effect with the weapon using her own abilities... heck look at the completely non-cannon Battlemoon wars...

With her Marble Phantasm, she can use the most random powerful attacks besides clawing...

nah i dont think so, this is now focusing on Archer reality marble, and we are comparing it to Marble Phantasms. Although if its elaborated more, it will become off topic =P

in fatal fake he can :|
i honestly dont know about the real thing though. If shiro can port NP's abilities, then i would guess archer could do the same

Unlimited Gae Bolg Works? O_O

Probably... he could... At least he was able to activate the ability of other NP before. So I guess he should be able to...
But it will suffer from a global rank down. Making it a C attack, thus probably failing more often on the luck roll. And Archer's affinity is swords... yes he can trace other stuff, but it cost him more. Shields are supposed to cost him 3 times as much. I suppose spears probably cost him a lot too. So I guess he probably just doesn't think it's worth the cost for him. After all, what makes Gaebolg so great is it's low cost and high return. If Archer made one, it would probably be high cost and low return... Not worth it if that is true.

I would think that even if it's said that Shirou's affinity is sword, they actually meant bladed weaponry. The name of the Reality Marble is Unlimited Blade Works anyway. Not to mention that there are some spears included in the CG where Archer made sword rain in UBW. :)

nope assassins sword wont work. Its just a long decent sword
His attack is a skill and not a noble phantasm. Things like Excalibur and stuff revolve around weapon innate abilities, but assassin could perform his technique with anything, even a stick. so it probably wont work there

Yes it would. Archer and Shirou's tracing recreates the memory and history of the blade. That's how Shirou used Nine Lives Blade Works. The sword thing Berserker used was just a big rock. Heracles' nine lives is actually a style, so it could be used with a bow, a sword, a giant rock axe-sword, and a stick.

Nine Lives (Shooting Hundred Heads) is a skill, not a NP... Hercules could also port this skill to a stick, fyi.

The same could be said to Tsubame Gaeshi, then. :)

Tsubame Gaeshi isn't a NP. It's listed as a skill. Assassin has no NP.

NP refer to both of Weapon and Technique.

Excalibur (sword) is NP and Excalibur (blast) is NP.

Nine Live is adaptable; it can be used with any weapon (NP), while other NP (tech) associate with NP (weapon) such as Excalibur and Gae Bolg.

I doubt how many thing he can download. He can download Nine Live.
So when he fight DSB why he don't track Ex and download; instinct, magical energy release, leadership, track monohoshizao and download eyes of mind, knowledge of foremost harmony, track Gae Bolg and download rune magic, protection from arrow, battle continuation, track Rider's dagger and download superhuman strength, mystic eye, track some of Gil weapon and download Divinity A+, track rule breaker and download divine speed language, territory creation etc.

He cannot download innate skills that are related to one's Divine Blood or passive skills like Charisma. Only skills that were used alongside the weapon, like when he used Caliburn, and Nine Lives. That also includes Tsubame Gaeshi. Divine Words, Divinity, Eye of The Mind(Fake) are not used with the weapon.
