Attack / HP Growth
The only reason any player should use Benkei for is his Taunt. Even then, units like Saint George or Leonidas have a much better base skillset and are more suitable for the role at the same Rarity. Benkei's skillset and Noble Phantasm are truly mediocre and there is almost no justifiable reason to use him as a main unit in any team.
- One of the few units in the game with Taunt skill while also has low cost and good durability
- Can offer some decent boss control value through Skill/NP block
- Offers next to no offensive presence or value to the team
- Terribly long cooldown on his NP block skill and reliant on high skill level/RNG to take effect
Craft Essence Recommendation
- Halloween Arrangement: Arguably the best type of CE for Benkei is taunt CE, so he can Taunt for multiple turns and protect the team main damage dealer
- Iron-Willed Training / Holy Shroud of Magdalene: Offer some form of Defense buffs to Benkei, so he can last longer if he is required to use his Taunt another time
Level Up Skill Recommendation
Imposing Stance is far and away his best skill. At max level, it is incredibly useful since it also has a Def up component. Benkei's main problem is the lack of Guts status to combo with it, but a Taunt that makes him take little damage for 1 turn for every 5 turns is worth leveling.
Both of his remaining skills are frankly lackluster. While Vengeful Spirit Exorcism has a higher success rate, the RNG nature of bosses in terms of using skills makes it a lot harder to utilize it to its full effect compared to Blank Subscription List. In the end, because both are quite bad even when maxed, players should not attempt to level it since with just his 1st skill he's already decently useful unless Benkei serves as a pivotal member of your team (which will never happen).
Suggested Servant Synergies
Robin Hood: Benkei has a non-lancer standard deck with a QQAAB layout and supportive Arts NP. With his two Arts cards and NP available, he can help Robin Hood build NP faster through Arts chains. Additionally, his possible stun, skill seals, future NP seal, and Taunt are good for keeping Robin Hood safe sometimes, His curse will also stack with poison for even more DoT damage.
Boudica: Both servants share the exact same deck layout. If for whatever reason you are adverse to Mash, Boudica fulfills a somewhat similar role, with the advantage of having another quick card for gaining NP gauge. Additionally, both will be able to fulfill a defensive/stall core, with Boudica’s defense buffs in addition to Benkei’s utility.
Cu Chulainn (Caster): With Cu Chulainn Caster’s 3 Arts cards, Benkei can build up NP gauge fairly easily. Benkei’s utility reduces the effective window of vulnerability when Caster Chu Chulainn’s Protection from Arrows is on cooldown. Lastly, they can also stack Curse and Burn, if you would like to play with DoT.
