So fucking thrilled for
Spoiler:
Jinako Carigiri
getting in. Nasu even
Spoiler:
remembered she's overweight
!

Oh my gooooosh I just saw her design and animations. I don't know if she's the cutest servant in the game, but she's certainly the cutest servant in the game that I'm aware of.
Spoiler:
And the statue form of Ganesha is hilarious.
I made a PADHerder. It's probably out of date though.

Okay. So. Turns out I've been playing the game wrong this whole time.

I thought Mystic Codes used up command seals. So I have never used a Mystic Code ability ever. That... explains a lot.

PSA: The event ends on Daily Quest refresh, not the end of day refresh. Make sure you find time to go nuke the red oni when he gets killed for that precious, precious Summon Ticket.

Managed to snarf all the Mana Cubes, but otherwise ignored the basket items as I failed to get any 5* Event CE.  I thoroughly ransacked the rest, though.

And with that, I think we're free of Raid Events for awhile.

Inaugural 10-roll for Agartha got me Assassin of Nightless City; she's no Berserker of El Dorado, but I'll take my win and continue to save for Summer Fran.

Did 11 pulls and got the traditional bunch of Servants I already have ten of along with two new 5* CEs. I got Another Ending and Prisma Cosmos.

Victor of the Moon is very useful so I imagine Another Ending is going to come in handy eventually, and Prisma Cosmos seems like a great fit for Tamamo.

Edit: How does star absorption work exactly? Now that I know how Mystic Codes work I want to make a Mozart so I can do a critical hit team built around Passionlip. The plan is to use an ally Merlin, and swap my other unit out for Mozart for on-demand huge Hero Creation buster chain turns.

I want another unit to pair with her who can generate a lot of stars for her consistently. She has an absorption of 97, and Mash has 99 but it feels like Mash always takes all available stars when I play them together. Does two points make that much of a difference? What's a good threshold to shoot for with the other unit so that most of the stars go to PLip?

As far as servants to pair with Lip if you want Lip to get more stars on average: try a Caster, Avenger, or Berserker. Riders and Archers will generally steal more stars, so probably not them.

Pinning down *exactly* how absorption works is a little different, since it feels like each card in any given hand has its own innate modifier, but I couldn't point to any specific data to back that up.

All these people getting the new Assassin and all I got was one new 3* CE.

My luck has been absolutely atrocious in the various games I play recently. I can only hope things turn around for me soon.

I've discovered the Torturers seem extremely vulnerable to Nito's insta-kill NP.  Give her the Hydra Dagger CE and watch 'em die off en masse.

I don't think I have a quick-based Caster or Berserker. Mysterious Heroine X Alter would fit perfectly if I had her. I figured Enkidu might work since lancers don't have a super high star weight and he sooort of does. Lip doesn't get as many stars as I'd like, but I quickly raised up an Amadeus now that I know how to use Mystic Codes so I can make a ton of stars on demand if I need them, which helps.

Every time I see a gold saber card pop up, I'm really happy about it and wondering who finally decided to come home. Did I finally manage to get Mordred?? Who could it be?

Well for the third time now I've gotten sumanai, so I guess our best dragonboi is always here for me whenever I have to deal with lancers  :V

Okay, so what is the canon relationship between the Fate universe and the Tsukihime universe? I thought they were completely separate with a few small visual elements that cross over, but I swear I recongized Ryougi Shiki from somewhere and I finally looked it up and yeah, she's playable in Melty Blood. Is she the same character? Is this the same universe? What does the Atlas Institute uniform's "Dust of Osiris" ability tie in to? Are those easter eggs or plot points?

It's a little... complicated.

Not helping matters is that the Fate universe itself is a Multiverse; FSN, Prisma/Illya, Apocrypha, and FGO each being a separate universe.
Next, Ryougi Shiki is from Kara no Kyoukai, an entirely separate series from TH and FSN.  (Mahoutsukai no Yoru is another.)
Official canon has each work technically exist as its own separate universe.  However, Fate-based Worlds and Tsukihime-based Worlds ultimately exist on entirely different foundations.

Yeah, I guess since Grand Order is a crossover game it isn't too much of a stretch to take characters from other related sources. Or unrelated ones for that matter, in traditional mobile game fashion. I didn't know Shiki wasn't originally from Tsukihime.

Oh yeah, I remember skimming that article at some point, because I remember its dubious claim that Fate Zero and Fate Stay Night aren't the same canon. That is the basest pedantry.  :D

Edit: I got another five-star! Jeanne. A Fate Apocrypha character is nice.

Finished Agartha.  My line-up:

Scathach, Mash, Support JAlter, Raikou, Angry ManJew, Chloe
Used the Plugsuit.

Immediately swapped JAlter and Chloe.  Whittled it down 'til Turn 10 without killing it, stunning it whenever its NP gauge was full.  Then let JAlter unleash Hell once its Guts buff was gone (though it was practically dead at that point).

Anniversary 2 is coming up, probably with a Lucky Bag Summoning.

The fact that the final enemy's NP strips Guts off really ticks me off, because of the main damage dealer I use. Still, as aggravating as this thing is, still a hundred times better than these blasted Hydras. I hate them. I hate them. I hate them hate them hate them hate them hate them hate them hate them

Alright, I beat Camelot! You weren't kidding about the story picking up, I really loved it. The last chunk was EZ thanks to Tamamo being kiiinda overpowered. That and the fact that my characters have at least middling skill levels right now. Nero has gone from being basically garbage to actually being able to deal damage between the significantly higher attack boost from Imperial Privilege and the huge boost from Fox's Wedding. And uh understanding how to use Mystic Codes helped a lot. I still don't have any big DPS servants really, but now I have the synergy to make what I do have work for me well enough.

Edit: Oh dang, my anniversary stones got me a Kaleidoscope and a Berserker of El Dorado!

Anni quartz here got me another black grail (third one - MLB incoming??) and Caster Gilles  :derp: I know, I'm that crazy person rolling the standard story banner, but to be fair I don't mind the lack of rate ups. I want virtually all of the story-locked SSRs but won't be rolling on every individual banner, so having them all clumped together is not a bad deal IMO

After the panel at Anime Expo, I believe. The Agartha banner expires then, so (according to some people on Reddit) it's a fair bet.

The upcoming GSSR banner is... oh boy. Guaranteed 5* non-Limited, but it'll pick from literally every 5* in that pool.
(If this is your first time with GSSR, you must expend Paid Saint Quartz, so minimum buy-in is paying for 1+4+25 packs; and you only have one shot.)

Thinking about upcoming things, I'm still feeling very uncertain about who to take with the soon-to-be Free SR Ticket.

Since I don't have any support caster yet aside from Hans, Helena is probably a good choice with her battery and all-card-boost. But I'm still lacking in basically any Saber outside sumanai and Liz, so I was thinking about grabbing Salter too... Suzuka or Saberlot might also be a good pick? Tough choices...

I'm picking 'Stolfo for sure, unless I somehow pick him up before then. I was considering between him, Fran, and Gorgon, but I like how his set works from playing with him as a support. It's... bad, but fun bad.

If you're looking for a support caster, maybe consider investing in an Amadeus. He's extremely cheap to build and I've really been enjoying him. He's basically a two-trick pony since his only redeeming features are two of his skills, but they're incredibly powerful skills that would break the game if they were on an otherwise competent character. Protection of the Music God is a powerful party-wide Arts buff that's just about the same level as Tamamo's (although only for one turn), and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik grants fifty critical stars and guarantees party-wide crits for a turn. I've been playing him with Combat Uniform and Golden Captures the Carp and he pulls a ton of weight. Just don't expect him to do like, literally anything else. His NP is tolerable if he ever gets to it, but mostly he just wastes deck space and dies aside from his niche. But it is a great and fun niche. Especially if you're already using or pairing with a Merlin since he has great synergy with Hero Creation.
