  • Phenex’s normal attacks will hit everyone, thus it can stack up quickly without damage mitigation such as Defense buffs or class advantage. This also makes bringing Taunters incredibly ineffective.

  • Party-wide Evasion or Invincibility work wellfor avoiding Phenex’s Noble Phantasm, or to buy a turn when team’s party HP is low. Phenex's NP isn't a total party-kill, but without protection it will deplete nearly a full HP bar on neutral SSR Servants.

  • The Burn damage from Phenex’s Noble Phantasm can stack and build up over the long term. Masters that prefer more stalling-centric tactics should take this into account for a prolonged battle. High debuff resistance can also stop the burn from being applied or Masters can absorb or cleanse the debuff.

  • Be mindful of one of Phenex’s skills that can cause a Servant to lose 2000 HP on the next turn regardless of protections, especially on Servants with low HP revival on their Guts.

Team Recommendations

  • Generally, a team of 1-2 Riders with 2-1 Supports should be the go-to team for this quest.

  • Alter Egos, and to a lesser extent, Berserkers, can also work as DPS options, but they lack the class advantage resistance of Riders so Masters should take extra care when fielding them.

  • As Phenex has passive resistance to Servants with the King trait, Masters could avoid fielding these Servants as main damage dealers. The damage reduction is very noticeable whenever an NP from a King is used, but some of them still function quite well.
  • Phenex's overall damage can be successfully stalled through with Arts compositions. However, the Instant Death aspect of his kit may decide to randomly take out Servants.
