I suggest wiki.

But wait until you finished the series. Or you will be spoiled.

Don't think is anything canon for the fight, Fate/DEEN pending of course.

I guess there will be no explanation about the spells that the mages are using during battles so what would be the best place to read more about them?

I'm mainly interested in the bird familiars (that can change shape)/jewel spells/red and black orbs (the ones that Rin used against Illya and those skeletons in the latest ep)/the enhancement that Rin used on herself to escape from Lancer.

There is that info thread with servant stats and abilities so I thought that these are also probably explained in detail somewhere.

To answer; (No real spoilers, but you might be different in what you consider a spoiler)

I thought it made sense, actually.

Reinforcement is the most simple magecraft is what you wanted to say, because it's absolutely basics. Reinforcing yourself is easy, other objects are hard and other people is very hard.

Yeah, that's the problem with wikis. People mindlessly copy stuff without varifying whether it's actually true. Reinforcement is basic magecraft, what they wanted to say is that it's almost impossible to master (even bad magi like Maiya can do it). It wouldn't really make sense if Kiritsugu taught Shirou the most difficult spell first.

I'd actually just finished Rin's lecture on it in the Fate route, so reading that it's the hardest after she said it's basic confused me a little.
Judging by how some if it reads, it was probably a little half-assedly translated from Japanese.

She basically said what I said. Easy to learn, hard to master. (And humans are one of the most flawed existences in Nasuverse, so reinforcing yourself is super easy and effective.)

1. Did Archer actually killed Berserker in episode 3 with Caladbolg or Berserker protected himself?
2. Do you guys think that Caladbolg is powerful enough to kill Lancelot?


1. Like already said, no. He turned around and didn't let it hit him directly.
2. Yeah probably, only IF he will let himself get direclty hit by it.

I'm asking about Lancelot, because he has A-rank defense and Arodnight increases it by one rank. Shouldn't he be almost indestructible with that?

I have 2 questions:

1. How could Shirou summon Saber without any rituals just like other masters?(episode 1)

2. And how could Shirou use his Command Seal without any spell?(episode 1)

If Archer snipes him with either Caladbolg or Hrunting, and FZ-Berserker doesn't have any protection against projectiles, nor does he possess instincts, he's dead. Don't know how to weigh in his divine protection though.

1. Forcefully summoned. He was chosen as a Master a while ago, but didn't summon his Servant, so the Grail did because seven Servants are needed to start the Grail War. People who have seen FZ have seen that before.

2. Not sure what you're talking about. He obviously had his spells already. Command Spells can be activated by any Master through sheer will and thought.

1. I have watched F/Z, but I did not notice any forceful summons.

Lacelot's durability is very high indeed(most likely the highest amongst the servants). But he isn't indestructible. Although I'm not too sure about killing, considering he has survived direct NPs from Gil and Rider's Gordius Wheel, but caladblog would surely hurt him if hit directly.

Caladbolg will destroy lancelot. Defense alone won't save you from something like a A rank BP unless its EX defense. FSN Berserker is tanking every shit because of God Hand, Lancelot got no NP shield, ability, etc. to protect himself from that kind of attack.

1. Caster. Uryuu didn't do a proper summoning, he just was chosen as a Master.

2. You give an order and the Command Spell activates if you're willing it. You don't have to say "I'm using my Command Spell to order you to blablabla". You can if you want to, but it's not necessary.

Uryuu was just trying to summon a demon, he had no knowledge of servant classes or heroic spirits.

As for why Shriou summoned Saber

1.they'll probably (definitely) go over Shirou's summoning later in the series. Because it has more problems than just that.

2.This is from the VN, There's no reason to say they won't lampshade this somewhere in here.

A catalyst is an item that helps the Grail to summon a certain Heroic Spirit. If you want Heracles, you better get an item that is associated with him and prepare it before you summon your Servant. Waver explains it and the BD bonuses from FZ do, too.



And again, what Uryuu chanted isn't better than nothing, it's nothing. The Grail did the summoning.

A catalyst is a usually some artifact that has ties to a heroic spirit/s , that help the summoner chose a specific hero they want (and will also help narrow down class, as most heroes fit in like 3 classes at max). Spoilers Ahead

I don't know why you feel you have to put the full spoiler in there. Your allowed to make it ambiguous, the guy would probably appreciate it.

Only basically.
The masters don't have to die.
And in any case, F/SN's Grail War isn't a standard one, with not too much focus on that aspect, except kind of in the Fate route, F/Z has something more of "death tournament" of sorts.

That's a Fate spoiler, be careful, if you want to read that.


The blue/green lines that you see are magic circuits. They are also seen when Shirou uses reinforcement, like when he reinforced that poster against Lancer in episode 1.

Shirou doesn't want to kill people. People are still gonna die and not all of them in the last few episodes.

Like I said one or two times already, it was covered in FSN's first story, Fate. Since ufotable doesn't cover the Fate route, they might explain it later though. FSN is made of three stories and it forces you to play Fate before you can play UBW.

Because of the lack of Fate route, I'm pretty sure they will add most of the infodumps/explanations found in the Fate route.

This is an UBW route adaptation though. Not a Fate route adaptation.

Regardless, they will probably add it because DEENight does not exist.

Edit: Actually, dafuq am I saying, we are still on day 4 in the anime.
