Greetings dear Captain(s), this is Captain Hoshina here and in this guide I will introduce you to the new battlesuit in v3.9; Bright Knight: Excelsis (BKE) that of course were used by our strongest Valkyrie in Schiskal, Durandal.
Just like Valkyrie Gloria (VG), this battlesuit still used the same weapon which is; Lance. BKE type is Mecha which means she have an overwhelming advantage against Creature enemies. And another important notes, this battlesuit can be relies heavily on its Charge Attack as it can be repeated without limit as long as you time the button perfectly.
Below are the overview of BKE:
Unlike all other battlesuits, BKE has one new move that only she can use which is Defense (blocking incoming attack) and will be explained later. This guide aims to help players to understand her skills and able to use her to her maximum potential
(and go beyond, plus ultra).
※All the stats below are based on SSS-rank BKE
Leader Skill [Horns of Jericho] – Grants 25% bonus Physical DMG and 25% bonus Crit DMG to the team.
Passive Skill – Paragon
Basic ATK [Gladius Milites] – Deals Physical DMG and Heavy ATK which deal more DMG against shield.
Charged ATK [Kontos Equites] – Deals higher DMG against shields. Restores SP.
There are 5 ways to launch Charged ATK:
1) After 5th basic ATK > hold ATK > Javelin
2) Evasion skill in CD > block > Javelin 3) Evasion skill READY > evade/block > Javelin EX
4) Evasion skill in CD > block > Phantom Blade 5) Evasion skill READY > evade/block > Phantom Cleave
Evasion [Scutum Divinitas] – After ultimate evasion, press ATK immediately to launch charge ATK.
Left is Ultimate Evasion (evade + directional button) Right is Defense (evade button while standing still)
Ultimate [Sceptrum Regalis] – Enter Burst Mode and unlock the true potential of Bright Knight Excelsis.

As you are aware now, BKE is a very powerful strong gracious valkyrie that deals mainly if not all, Physical DMG. So to maximize her potential, you need to use gears that will immensely boost her Physical DMG and Crit DMG. Below are the recommended equipment that can be said to buff her overall. Do not worry if you are an F2P player as it also stated the equipment that you can grind in the game.
Bright Knight Excelsis | Yamabuki Armor | Snowy Sniper
The best team for BKE. As we all know by now, BKE relies heavily on her basic and charge ATK, so to make her deals the most DMG she can, we must give her the opportunity to attack the enemies without any distraction or interruption. Below are the reason why:
Yamabuki Armor (YA)
First of all, YA will provide a shield that absorbs Physical ATK DMG. With this shield, BKE can deals DMG to enemy surrounding her without have to worry about her HP and with this also she can deal Charged ATK continuously to her enemies. If the shield is broken, then you can just reset it with QTE or Ultimate to repeat the DMG loops. If for some reason you want to use YA to be the leader, that's okay too because her leader skill allowed the whole teams to gain more Crit Rate when Combo Hit Count exceeds 30.
Snowy Sniper (SS)
Her Ultimate freezes all enemies for 8s making it easier for BKE to aim at the frozen enemies. Not only that, enemies affected by the Ultimate (which are all of the enemies) take 35% more Physical DMG. This definitely will step up her game even better as she already deals MASSIVE Physical DMG in the first place, now she can deal 35% more Physical DMG towards frozen enemies? Her enemies probably won't stand a chance against her during this time.
✨ And finished! Congratulations for you to have finished this guide! That means you've already mastered the way of Bright Knight Excelsis.✨
🔥 I wish all of you luck (including me) in the Expansion Supply gacha when this character comes out. In terms of investment priority, I would say she is a very powerful Physical DMG Valkyrie along the others but that is just my opinion, feel free to have your own opinion. 🔥
