Serval cannot use all effects of this weapon as it deals more DMG with the Follow-up attacks, and Since she does not do any Follow-up ATK, you can use it on that part.

Shield Provider
Honkai Star Rail Serval

For the Main DPS Role, Yanqing will perform best. He will take down Elite Enemies and Bosses. He is an Ice Element character, so he can be used to break the Toughness bar of enemies who are weak to Ice Element. 

Asta is going to be the Support character. As she is from The Harmony Path, she can be great at giving Buff to the party. 

Gepard is from the Preservation path, so he is a defensive or a Tank character who will give a shield to the member for their longer sustainability. He also deals with a bit of DMG. Finally, add Serval to build this team comp perfectly.
