Attack / HP Growth

Overview

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 Boost 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. 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.

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 rivalling 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.

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 Utility

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 Skills

Apart from the, 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.

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 from story completion. While this does not affect his tier ranking, in practice it may result in a weaker NP than is ideal. Cunning Masters may be able to roll additional copies on special Saber banners at good rates.

Fewer Benefits in Skill Progression

The primary effect of Bedivere’s skills scale terribly with additional skill levelling. 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.

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 and/or Buster Damage Up, improve NP generation, or 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.

Golden Sumo / Kaleidoscope  - 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. The Kaleidoscope family is ideal if you need that NP immediately.  

Little Halloween Devil / Jeweled Sword Zelretch - For longer and extended fights, improving Bedivere’s NP gain rate is very viable. 

Limited/Zero Over / Verdant Sound of Destruction - During NP turns, this will turn Bedivere’s NPBB chain into something truly devastating.

Heaven’s Feel / Angel's Song - If a single powerful NP is all that is needed, straight NP damage up is ideal.

Level Up Skill Recommendation

As Bedivere primarily is used to blast something with his NP, levelling Tactics first to improve his damage a bit more is not a bad place to start.

After all, none of Bedivere’s skills scale particularly well with levels, with both the main benefit of Calm and Collected and Oath of Protection locked at values of 30% and upgrades only improving the minor additional effect. The main reason to level these skills is to reduce their cooldowns. Which skill among these two is leveled second and third mostly comes down to personal preference, but using an NP more often is better suited for his kit than his defensive skill.
