Bastet is a great support nat-five monster in Summoners War.
Bastet is great both in pvp and pve context.
She has a great third skill which increases all allies attack bar by 25% plus puts shield based on her level (about 5k HP at level 40) and increases all allies attack.
Thanks to this skill she is often used in Arena Offense as a better alternative than Megan in double Lushen composition and also in Arena Defense with double nemesis and Will rune set as a counter to double Lushen/Lushen plus other AoE nuker compositions (first Lushen makes her proc double Nemesis, she gains her turn and then she uses third skill buffing all allies attack bar).
The second skill is similar to other Desert Queen's one which is an AoE multi hit inflicting Defense Break, Glancing Hit and Heal Block for two turns with 75% chance on max skill up.
Bastet is used also on ToA with Despair build and also in Swift Will in pvp. She shines in the World Arena with her defense leaderskill (33% defense to all allies).

Well, first of all, I´m really happy to have pulled Bastet, as she´s a very nice support monster. I´ve never full evolved Megan, now I don´t have any reason to do it.
First thing is that the review of this monster is very good, specially the part explaining the doble Nemesis/Will set wich is really used in late game with success.
However, and even when I agree that the three proposed sets work perfectly with Bastet, I have runed her Violent/Will, exactly like Woosa. I know many people prefer to rune Woosa or Bastet with Swift, but in my oppinion, support monsters full of AoE useful buffs/debuffs really shine in Violent.
Because, just think: You use a speed Leader/buffer and get initiative with Bastet, then use S3 and proc, enabling the inmediate use of S2. That will mean all your monsters buffed, with ATB increase and all enemies debuffed at the same time... It´s a dream for you and a nightmare for your opponent. Also note the ATK debuff on S1 that´s perfect to control the enemy nukers damage output while you clear them.
So the point of Bastet is that she´s really useful in every game situation, that´s why she has so many different rune builds that fit her skills.
Mine is still not yet full skilled, and I still have to test her in PVE content as Raid and elemental rift, I´ll do a srort review of it if I find something interesting.
UPDATE: I have tryed Bastet in ToaH along with a Boomerang/Chakram CC team and the results have been amazing. I never expected Bastet being so useful in ToaH, but she really has a great synergy with fast AoE nukers like shaina and Maruna!
AND ANOTHER UPDATE: Now that I have Seara, I´ve discovered the real potential of Bastet, runed in SWIFT and not Violent. With Seara lead and a 285-speed Bastet, I can launch my stripper and set@explode the bombs before the enemy can even move. Now I understand why Bastet can also shine in Swift runes. As I´ve said before she´s so versatile that admitas a lot of different setups to work with.
