Overview

"My arm and my sword are for my king."

One of the most loyal and kind of Knights of the Round Table, Bedivere enters the fray as a Buster-based Servant with a very powerful single-target NP. Bedivere possesses one of the highest attack stats among his silver peers, with good potential NP generation to boot. However, with only one Arts card available to him, most of that NP generation is locked behind his five-hit Extra attack.  

In terms of skill set, Bedivere is very straightforward and spreads his influence towards a little bit of everything. Offensively, Bedivere relies on his NP and has access to both the relatively weak Tactics skill and an NP gauge boosting skill in Calm and Collected. On the defensive side, Oath of Protection grants his team a single turn Defense Up to aid them during turns of high incoming damage while also boosting his own debuff resistance for a single turn. Beyond his skills, his NP’s overcharge effect is what makes him truly stand out. Bedivere’s NP grants him an immediate Buster damage buff for 1 turn with impressive overcharge scaling. In terms of ST damage, not even Caesar can match him during an NPBB turn.

Unfortunately, It’s a shame that Bedivere is a story-locked Servant, which makes additional copies hard to attain. With skills that only last for a single turn and bereft of sustained improvements to his damage output, Bedivere relies on that single burst of heavy NP damage.Sadly, the story-lock makes unlocking that powerful potential rather difficult. 

Even at NP1 though, Bedivere will perform admirably and once his NP interlude does arrive, he will become one of the most powerful 3* Servants in the game.

Gameplay Tip

Bedivere is a rare story-locked Servant with few direct rate ups. However, special class-based Saber banners are excellent opportunities to collect copies of Bedivere with very high rates, with his rate up reaching up to 10% on them.

Strengths

High NP Damage

The combination of Bedivere’s NP Buster Overcharge, high attack and his NP Damage Up will allow him to deal NP damage rivaling even the most powerful ST silver Servants. Furthermore, Bedivere’s NP not only hits hard, it also boosts the damage of any of his Buster cards that follow. The combination of his NP Gauge boost and post-Interlude NP damage makes him one of the best budget Raid farmers available.

NP Generation Potential

Between Bedivere’s potentially high NP generation stat and his flat 30% NP gauge boost, Bedivere will generally have no problem charging his NP in time. Yet most of that NP gain is locked behind his Extra attack and the single Arts card he has access to. An Arts-infused Extra attack can potentially generate very high numbers, but charging his NP with his other cards is much harder to pull off. In practice, Bedivere leans heavily on his powerful NP gauge boost.

Team Support

While not his primary purpose, Bedivere is able to help his team through his Tactics and Oath of Protection skills. Both of these skills only last for 1 turn however, so use them wisely.

Weaknesses

Lack of Sustained Performance

Apart from his very situational mental debuff resistance up, Bedivere does not possess any skills that last for longer than 1 turn. Thus, despite having access to two team-wide skills, Bedivere is mostly invested in the power of his Noble Phantasm and the single turn of power that comes with it. For sustained damage, Bedivere will have to rely on external support. In addition, he can be rather fragile with only a single turn of medium-strength Defense Up. 

Hard to Acquire

Due to story-related reasons, Bedivere is among the hardest to acquire silver Servants in the game outside of the initial copy gained from story completion. While this does not affect his tier ranking, in practice it may result in a weaker NP than is ideal.

The primary effects of Bedivere’s skills scale terribly with additional skill leveling, which is a mixed blessing. Both his NP gauge boost and his Defense Up skills are static in value and unaffected by additional skill ranks. Thus, the main reason to level Bedivere’s skill is to reduce his cooldowns. Tactics is the only skill that truly scales with levels.

On the other hand, a Bedivere at 1/1/1 skills will output similar numbers to a maxed out one. Masters with low resources could invest in other Servants' skills first.

  • Leveling Tactics first will improve the damage output of his NP turns by a fair margin. While Tactics itself is often accused of undertuned values, it does scale well with common Buster- and Attack buff-based Supports.
  • Calm and Collected does not scale in a significant way, as Mental Debuff Resistance is very niche (mainly useful against Charm in practice). Still, the reduced cooldown on his static 30% NP charge is highly useful for improving his sustained damage in longer fights. Level this second.
  • His Oath of Protection similarly has its main buff locked at a value of 30%. The Defense Up is potent with additional defense buffs from allies, and the cooldown is short at max rank. Yet it does not contribute to his main niche of burst damage, and can be safely leveled last.

Craft Essence Recommendation

With access to an NP gauge boost, a high NP generation stat and a powerful NP, Bedivere wants to NP quickly, hit hard and NP as often as possible. Therefore, Bedivere prefers CEs that increase NP Damage or Attack Up, improve NP Generation, or grant Starting NP Gauge. Starting NP Gauge CEs in particular can help remove any reliance on that single Arts-card draw or creating an Extra chain. Note that Buster Performance Up CEs are less potent, but still viable, due to the Overcharge effect on his NP. 

  • Golden Sumo / Devilish Bodhisattva / Holy Night Supper: With no access to normal attack buffs in his kit, Bedivere scales extremely well with the attack buff on Golden Sumo while also putting him just 20% away from an instant NP.  Devilish Bodhisattva is especially potent after his NP Interlude, the increased Overcharge boost from Devilish Bodhisattva grants a massive 30% stronger Buster buff. A very potent option for one-shot strategies with minimal NP charging help required. Holy Night Supper is a decent alternative with large buff stacking strategies where Golden Sumo often grants less benefit.
  • Kaleidoscope / Dragon's Meridian: The Kaleidoscope family is ideal if you need that NP immediately.
  • Magical Girl of Sapphire / Little Halloween Devil / Cute Orangette - For extended fights, improving Bedivere’s NP gain rate is a very viable way to grant him regular access to his NP to smoothen his Burst damage distribution a bit (useful for Break Bars). 
  • Jeweled Sword Zelretch / Ryudoji Temple: Excellent budget alternatives that balance Starting NP Gauge and Performance.
  •  The Black Grail: As per usual, Black Grail provides the strongest damage increase possible. However, beware of the HP demerit.
