And sorry for the late reply.
answer to UBW
1)So Unlimited Blade Works is more like a portable workshop than a vault?
More like, a portable workshop that comes with a vault...
answer to UBW2
2) So by activating the unlimited Blade Work if Archer decided to trace his opponent NP that he has never seen before it will cause a lot of prana? And why does he need a lot of mana if he already has the stuff needed to make a new copy of the destroyed NP?
A lot of mana as in a lot compared to the amount needed in UBW--it's still less than regular mages
answer to Ea's charge up time
How long does it take for Gilgamesh to charge his EA?
Great question. The thing is, Ea isn't unleashed the way Excalibur is, where it can only be fired upon fully charged--Gilgamesh can simply fire it at minimum charge and gradually increase it to full power when attacking.
In Fate route, you can see that it can charge up as fast as Excalibur--which takes an unknown amount of time. Let's say it takes 'N' seconds.
In order to find the value for 'N', we'll need to look at other scenes for comparison--the first scene that came into my mind is actually Saber and Rider's battle. Saber started to unleash Excalibur when Rider is at a distance 'L' and hit her before she reached the rooftop--and we know the distance she hit Rider must not be 100m or less(*) from the rooftop or else the rooftop is still going to be destroyed.
How great is the distance 'L'?
Before that, we should jump back to the prologue for some reference material--and look at Tohsaka standing on top of the same building(you can even tell which part of the building from that red light), we can assume that the little square section she's standing on is 3.5m wide(made up of 3.5 rectangle tiles, and each of them are approximately a metre long--that's a guess by common sense and might not be accurate, though it's the only reference we've got)
Apply that back to the CG of Saber vs Rider we'll find out that 3.5metres is 2mm (again, on my screen)
If you look at the CG when Saber unleashes her Excalibur when Rider is charging down--we can see her distance away from the rooftop is about 8.5 cm on my computer screen.
Using this ratio, we can find out that Rider is only 148.75m away from the rooftop!
And if Rider is to be 100m away from the rooftop, she can only travel 48.75m before Excalibur is shot--how long would it take for her to cover the whole of 48.75m?
We know the speed of Rider at that moment is at 500kpm. Convert it to m/s we'll get 223.5--that means it'll take her only 0.218 seconds to cover that distance.
That being said, we can say that the maximum time Saber is allowed to charge up Excalibur is 0.218 seconds--any more than that and Shirou'll be fried shrimp.
*Excalibur's capable of evaporating anything with a 100m radius of its impact, as demonstrated in Fate/Zero against the sea monster.
Looking back at the the final battle, Gilgamesh's Ea reached maximum turn when Saber unleashed her second Excalibur.
Also, when Gilgamesh unleashed his last Ea against Saber, she was powerless to fight against it in the beginning, and it took a bit of struggling before she actually started charging up Excalibur.
Considering the destructive power of Ea and Saber's armor strength, I'd say that her armor can bath in Ea's attack for no more than two seconds before they gets completely destroyed, so we can say that it takes 2 seconds plus 'N' to fully charge up Ea, which is 2.218 seconds or less.
answer to 2 servants dying
What would happen to the holy grail if the last 2 servant killed each other at the same time?
HF spoiler--pm me for information...
answer to 2 reality marbles
A silly question :What happen if 2 different reality marbles are activated at the same time?
What if you spill cappuccino and latte on your shirt near the same spot at the same time?
The more concentrated coffee stains more.
What happens if 2 reality marbles are activated at the same time?
The more concentrated reality marble corrodes the other one.
answer to Alexander
What is the max number of servants will be summoned if Alexander use his army of the king?And if Alexander fight against a servant who were once his comrade will his opponent surrender to him?
Looking a few posts back, you'll find out the maximum number of servants he can summon is 999--Ea can capture a max of 1,000 units, and it managed to devour him and his entire army in one hit, so we can sure there are no more than 1,000 of them in Alex's reality marble. Alex being the 1,000th member.
And since only the copy of the heroic is being summoned, there'll just be two servants of the same identity dishing out at each other...
