All he has to do is stay at a safe range, and continuously rain swords down on Berserker, although it would cost him a lot, he could definitely do it, as shiro was able to do the same with less than half the strength and mana of Archer

Anyways, i think its very possible for Archer to beat Berserker if he really needed to, if he fights the same way Gil does, and is fine with using a lot of mana, he could possibly kill berserker in the same fashion.
It wouldn't be that easy to stay at safe range; Berserker is one of the fastest Servants. And one hit from him is game over for Archer
Good point... i guess to prevent a charge from Garzerker.... Archer could spawn Rho Aius during a charge to make him bump into it for a sec...

anyways, can you trace weapons inside of objects? i remember shiro taking careful consideration during early fate/ubw to not trace kansho and byakua into his hands during his fight with kuzuki. Although he can fuze weapons to his body parts, which has been proven during ubw a few times...

Anyways, could Archer spawn a broken Phantasm inside of Berserker if in close enough contact?

He can't spam Rho Aius, it cost is high :( . Three times higher.
And i don't think Archer can spam something. He hasn't enough prana for it i guess.

He can spam rain of sword and Broken Phantasms. Rain of swords costs no more when he entered UBW the Reality Marble. Broken Phantasm costs far lower than the actual activation of the Noble Phantasm.

@Qaynan : sure, he can predict and make the situation that the bullet was never shot. But that is considering the situation fits for him. Let me say this once more: just because there is 1% that can be exploited doesn't mean that 1% becomes 100%. In case there's plot armor that's convenient for him, like in UBW, fine, he can do it. But when the situation just doesn't kick in, like in Fate and HF, he's screwed. Simple and clean.

Also, I would like to emphasize once again that Saber Class is considered the strongest. Canon source stated that, so if you want to argue, you don't argue with me; you argue with Nasu. Just because there's Gil in Archer class doesn't make it the strongest class ever. That's called "hasty generalization".

I never said eye of the mind is that hax. It's a good ability that can give him an edge in a lot of situations though. I mean even Shirou managed to best Saber at swordsmanship using Archers experience in one of the dead ends. (sure she was going easy on him by not using an excaliblast... but neither did he use any hax NP. so it was a pretty fair sword fight where saber should have had the edge). Of course, sometimes it's not enough... But it still is a good ability to have.

And I wasn't arguing with anyone about the saber class being the strongest or not. I'm just stating my personal preference. I honestly like the Archer class much more. It's much more versatile, and corresponds to my way of thinking. And in a way, the Archer class is probably the natural enemy of the Saber one. I like to think of the classes in a more rock/paper/scissors way that in absolute strongest.

The funny thing is there is only one saber. The reason being Arthuria's contract with the world. If there is a opportunity to obtain the holy grail, she will be summoned. Therefore, she has been summoned during each of the grail wars (assuming there isn't any oddities such as with assassin.

Lolwut? Arturia was summoned twice (twice, and not more. she said that herself) because the two summoners in question use the same catalyst. HF3 Saber wasn't Arturia mind you.

that one guy's got it right.

Yeah, but she didn't obtain the Grail in 4th War. She had only been liberated in the end of Fate route, so by time-wise, that would not affect any Grail Wars from the 1st to the 5th. (actually, 1 to 3 don't really count since she wasn't there)

That way, the one who would summon King Arthur would not be Shirou but Ayaka Sajyou. Also, back to topic guys. :wink:

The Saber could be the all mighty Abe Takakazu :wink: He might be the strongest of the Saber class servant

off topic: Xamdou... im reading the same manga in your avatar, lol. Nice ;)

Back on Topic: Wont all servants just be killed/saved due to plot restrictions? honestly, if there were more routes in the game, the remaining servants would seem much stronger than originally. I have to say, any servant can beat another servant if the plot wills them to... the fights in the game are side-elements to the essential storyline of the game

off-topic: That manga is kinda cute and confusing but i haven't read all the chapter yet :(
on-topic: there is just too many possible routes due to the limitless parallel world , if only there could be Unlimited Route Work.....

Old Man Zel had Unlimited Route Works down when he was at his prime, but we are kind of lacking in info as to what he can and cannot do with his true magic. For example, how his magic interferes with the other versions of Zel's in the parallel universes. Who knows, since he mastered the magic, there may even be just ONE Zel amongst all parallel universes.

there cant be 1 Zel..physically and logically impossible..even if he can perform true magic, the fact that only 1 of him exist is prety much....unacceptable..(juz seems so to me so ignore me if you dont care)
besides, different outcome happens in alternate universe..who knows, Zel might be dead in an alternate universe, nerd in another or even not born..(another random stuff..i'm too bored now)

anddddd...why is gil ranked the strongest????!! his GARness does not even reach the knee of archer :roll:

because his Ea just pawns everything except for Saber's Avalon and Ea seems to be much lower mana-intensive than Avalon (Gilga used it multiple times in 1 fight with ease).
