- GB10 – (Rating: 7/10) A decent attack buffer for GB10. She works similarly to monsters like Shannon if you’re early in the game here. With her 3rd Skill shield buff, she serves as a good clutch for newer players. However, Galleon surpasses her in usefulness as an attack buff set-up later on, so most players will phase her out in due time.
- DB10 – (Rating: 7.5/10) Like GB10, she can be a good attack buffer and debuffer for early DB10 players. Her multiple debuffs does a good job in weakening the enemy during the trash waves, especially if she’s on a Despair set, while her shield buff will help mitigate a good amount of damage that you get from the boss. With her elemental advantage, she can easily tank a lot of hits too, although she herself won’t be doing that much in return. For newer players, Megan will still do a better job than Bastet here, largely due to her 2nd Skill’s strip.
- NB10 – Not recommended. While her 2nd skill does have multi-hits, her overall kit isn’t really suitable for NB10. Besides, Colleen already does her job and more here.
(Rating 6.5/10) Bastet does a surprising amount of damage for a support monster due to her 1st Skill’s strong multiplier. However, she still makes for a poor fodder farmer due to her slow skill animations and lackluster damage. Unless you somehow want to build her as a damage dealer, she shouldn’t be used as a fodder farmer.
- R5 – (Rating: 8.5/10) With her extremely tanky base stats (just look at that near 12k base HP & 700 defenses), she does an extremely good job as a frontline tank. With attack break, defense break, heal block and glancing at her disposal, she’s an excellent debuffer against the boss. While her attack buff is generally unnecessary due to the presence of Colleen, she still works as a secondary buffer. Alternatively, she’ll do fine in your second R5 party once you’ve reached end-game too.
- Element Rift Beasts – (Rating 8.5/10). An excellent supportive attack buffer. She works as an alternative to Hwahee, the Fire Sky Dancer, especially when you’re in need of a safer option here. She also provides a semi-reliable defense break, just in case your primary one fails to land it. As a bonus for those using her in the Fire BeastsA well-runed Bastet can clean up or even solo clear the Fire Minions in the Fire Beast using her 2nd Skill.
(Rating 7/10) With her good number of debuffs and attack buff, she’s a great support for ToA. For newer players, she again serves as a powerful support due to her shield buff, which will tank a significant amount of damage in ToAN early on.
(Rating: 9.5/10) Ever since the change in her 3rd Skill, Bastet have become the premium set-up monster for ignore-defense dealers like Bomber comps & Lushens. With a superior base speed, attack bar boost and base stats, she does Megan’s job and more in PvP. In fact, many players will opt to retire their Megans in favor of her once they get this mythical Desert Queen. Bastet also offers a huge annoyance with her Curse of the Beautiful, a devastating spell that can catch the opposing team off-guard with a myriad of debuffs. Most players will pair her up with a strong nuker like Perna or Theomars, so that they can pick up after she lands a good armor break or two on the targets. Her shield buff can also be notoriously difficult to break, especially if she’s on a very fast built. With only a single turn without her 3rd Skill’s buffs, she can supply a near never-ending wave of attack buffs to her allies while simultaneously protecting them with a 4,800 HP shield too.
How to Counter:
Thankfully, Com2Us had the sense of giving her one weakness, and that’s her poor base speed. Assuming you’re fighting a Bastet with around the same rune quality as you, your Bernards, Orions or Chloes will easily be able to get the first move off. From there, you just need to pick-off whatever damage threat the enemy has. Due to her monstrous defensive stats, Bastet shouldn’t be your first target unless you have a means of taking her out quickly, like a Copper nuke. For drawn-out fights, make sure you have a good cleanser or immunity buffer with you against her. You should not underestimate her 2nd Skill’s debuffs, since a lucky defense break landing on one of your monsters can quickly spell an end to the fight.
- Most players will build her like any other speed demon in the game, so try to stack as much speed as you can
- You can consider building her on other sets like Violent & Despair too. This is recommended if you don’t need her as a sole set-up for your cleave team
As one of the best attack buffers in the game, Bastet is an amazing monster to have in your arsenal. Older players should remember her original 3rd Skill that taunts a single-target while giving herself a shield and immunity buff. However, I’m sure pretty much everyone is in favor of her current skill set. The change to her 3rd Skill changed her from one of the most “meh” Nat 5*s in the game to a coveted attack bar booster that warrants some of your best runes. Build her any way you like (as a support please), and she’ll still do a fantastic job. She’s an all-round fantastic support monster that can be used in literally all PvP content, be it Guild Wars or World Arena.
