I wonder what they plan to do in place of the Fate/Apocrypha broadcast campaign since that would have added a Costume Dress for Astolfo (along with other things).

Yeah I'm very interested in that costume and the banners associated with it. Mordred and Dracula Berserker are both real high on my list of wants right now and trying for them on the same banner as Astolfo NP levels would be great.
I made a PADHerder. It's probably out of date though.

Has Apocrypha been released in Bluray yet? Because that seems like an easy replacement. Either that, or get it delayed until the Apocrypha collab.

Yup, last February.  Wouldn't be too surprised if it was merged with the collab.

Wait a day, get an answer.

It'll become available during the upcoming Thanksgiving Special.

That said... Just when did they add subtitles to the NP animations?

It must have been added a few (no more than like, 7) hours ago; I had just spent all of my AP when I woke up, and there were definitely no subtitles, but now there are. Interesting.

Update notes say 11/16, so literally just yesterday.

Also: Salem incoming, and 30 more quartz to fail to roll Abby with!

I've got 386 SQ and 60 tickets and counting riding on her. I'm well aware of the horror stories of not being able to roll the servant you want, but dammit if I'm going down then I'm going down in style.

Are getting Salem or Christmas 2019 first? I am interested in Abigail (especially as someone that has lived in Eastern Massachusetts my whole live) but all my current resources are being saved for Ereshkigal first and foremost, and I'd only be able to blow any leftovers on rolling for Abigail.

Salem should be first, followed by Christmas 2019 a couple of weeks afterward.

However, Abby and Sheba are on the second Salem banner, but that should still be before Eresh's anyway.

The NP subs are pretty cool, but they still seem pretty flawed. Astolfo doesn't have subtitles at all and Ibaraki's NP seems to be missing a line, it starts mid-sentence. Hopefully that gets fixed later.

So I'm sure none of this is surprising to anyone who knows how to play this game, but as someone who has no idea what they're doing, here's my take on the characters I've invested heavily in lately:

-Ishtar: Painfully awkward to use but in a cool way. Her invulnerability mechanics are unreliable, her mana burst is unreliable, her buster-heavy crit playstyle is unreliable, but she's fun to use and can do very powerful things. I'm consistently underwhelmed by her NP damage even with all of her crazy buffs, but I think she had an interlude coming up so hopefully it gets better.

-Shuten: I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do with her. She has 2.5 charismas so she can buff team damage by a ton. But since 1.5 of her damage buffs are debuffs they're only useful against one wave which makes me think she's a boss killer, but all of her stuff is AOE so saving it all for a boss wave seems like kind of a waste... Her star gen isn't very good so she's not great at being a support, her card damage is okay but her weird kit doesn't feel very well-suited for clearing waves... I dunno. She looks so cool that I use her a lot and am happy to do so but I don't think she's very good.

-Ibaraki: Very consistent but not very powerful or flashy. She fits onto nearly every one of my teams, especially since I'm severely lacking for single-target NPs, but her damage is always surprisingly low. A lot of hard fights seem to end with Ibaraki successfully soloing the boss's last health bar, but it's always a close call.

-Astolfo: Basically Raikou with a huge NP battery and infinite HP. I'm exaggerating, but not by as much as you would think. His NP clears the second wave and guarantees he has a ton of stars to one-shot the boss with huge crits. I have no idea how much of that comes from him scaling weirdly well with heavy investment and how much of it any old uninvested Astolfo could still pull off, but he is definitely my best unit even aside from waifu value. His buffs are slightly unreliable but occasionally turning a three-turn farm into a four-turn clear because he decides not to have his crit buff isn't that big of a deal. But god help you if you decide to try to use him with Ishtar and juggle two capricious jackasses only using their skills when they feel like it.

-Tamamo: Super powerful but surprisingly pointless. I almost never find myself wanting to use Tamamo because she's a bit on the slow-clearing side, even if she is very powerful and reliable. I'm sure I'll be glad to have her as we get into the later story content, but right now she almost always gets left behind and that's too bad.

-Special consideration goes to Mage's Association Uniform because Command Shuffle is so helpful at forcing Astolfo and Ishtar to do what I want them to do.

Shuten is mainly a mezzer with a AoE NP while most Assassins tend to be ST (Cleo is the only other 5* that has a AoE NP).  She works best on Arts focused teams.  Speaking of which...

Tamamo is the Arts-based Merlin, though not quite as good (but close).  However, outside of Arts-based teams, her usefulness is rather limited.

Right, and there was a time (before I got Astolfo) that I used Tamamo arts teams almost exclusively. She's definitely good and they're definitely good. But given how long it takes them to clear stuff sometimes I almost never feel like I need to use them anymore. Although that means I also haven't really experimented with teaming up Tamamo and Shuten very much yet.

Tamamo is, by design, a major part of Stall Central. She's slow but incredibly safe. It's how you get results like this in High Difficulty quests.

I was holding off on mentioning it, since you can never be too sure if something is a REALLY well designed fake or a real leak, but... SSR Saber Astolfo has been officially confirmed just a while ago, and while it seems folks over at reddit have mixed opinions, honestly I fucking love it. Finally I have a new target to save for, after I'm done saving for Skadi :V

...two years is a long time to wait, though :ohdear:

I've decided to take stock in my Servant army.  Here's the breakdown...

119 Total Servants;
1 No Ascension (which is Iri since I never got any of her mats)
4 Ascended once
7 Ascended twice
9 Ascended three times
98 Max Ascended

13 5*s; 3 NP2
53 4*'s (this excludes Mash); 8 NP2, 7 NP3, 1 NP4, 12 NP5 (all of my NP5's are welfare servants)

7 have all skills maxed

I mean, you don't need to do any of the Psuedo-Singularities; EoR chapters only require clearing the Final Singularity.

Besides, Salem is actually a fair bit easier than Shimousa. The Caster Bond can be a bit annoying, but it's way better than Shimousa's Knight Classes Bond when the major bosses fill all seven classes.

It's time-locked, anyway; thanks to the new Servant's super-spoilers, anything major involving her has to wait until her banner.

Oh right, I keep forgetting the new chapters work that way. Neat.

I've been chipping away at Shimousa while also dumping tons of apples into cheap QP, and I'm kinda bored by it so far. I ultimately didn't love Agartha that much either, which is kind of a bummer since my coworkers love those two chapters and kept telling me they were the best things FGO had ever done. But there's still plenty of room left for Shimousa to pick up and get good. I loved Shinjuku, but nothing since then has impressed me quite as much.

Went ahead and decided to do mine too. Lets see...

102 unique servants
-----
No Ascension - 16 servants
1 Ascension - 17 servants
2 Ascensions - 1 servant
3 Ascensions - 5 servants
Max Ascension - 63 servants
Bond 10 - Kintoki Rider, Arash, Spartacus, Drake
-----
Grailed to 100 - MHXA and Dantes
Grailed to 90 - Kintoki Rider, Nobunaga Archer, Lancer Alter, Mecha Liz
Grailed to 80 - Paracelsus
-----
12 SSR servants - Dantes NP2
37 SR servants (23 gacha, 14 welfare)
SR above NP1: Siegfried (3), LAlter (3), CasMarie (3), Atalante (2), Astolfo (2), Martha (2), Marie (2), Carmilla (2), TamaCat (2)
-----
Servants I haven't ascended yet are Caster Gilles, Parvati, Geronimo, Diarmuid, Fionn, Kid Gil, Billy, Fergus, Alex, Anne/Mary Rider, Hundred Face Hassan, Mephistopheles, Hektor, Tawara Touta, Babbage, Beowulf

Parvati I want to raise but I'm just on the fence over since I have every niche of lancers covered already, and for Skadi looping, I'm not sure how she fares against NP2 Dantes??? I will raise her eventually but low priority atm.

The other unraised ones are for similar reasons, I have someone that covers what they do and I'm focusing my QP and mats into raising my higher leveled servants first before I go back to them.

So I'm not very far into Salem, but I can't shake the feeling that this is deeply tasteless. It's going to be interesting to see how tactful the fictionalization ends up being in the end. I'm sure it's a combination of proximity and recency, this is definitely the singularity that I'm the most familiar with in a historical sense, but... woof. The Lovecraft characters don't help matters either. :D

No ascensions - 73
1 Ascension - 1 (Used Medea super early on, and then well, a certain SSR came along)
2 Ascensions - 1 (Working on Munenori)
Max Ascension - 78

Among non-welfare SR and SSR servants:
NP3 - Siegfried, Vlad (BOTH), Sanzou, Helena, Kiritsugu
NP2: Suzuka Gozen, Tomoe, Atalanta, Bradamante, Nezha, Martha, Caster of Okeanos Circe, Caster Gilgamesh, Assassin of Shinjuku Yan Qing, MHX Alter, Sitonai
-----
Servants at 10/10/10:
Summer Melt, Skadi, BB, Jalter, Mashu
Servants at ALMOST 10/10/10:
Nero Bride, Summer Jeanne, Tesla, Sanzou, Tamamo, MHX Alter, Qin Shi Huang, Elizabeth Bathory, Sakamoto Ryouma, Rider Kintoki, Nitocris

If anything, I grailed Zerkerlot just for the sake of making Double Skadi loops with him more reliable. I only got him for the first time on the recent SR pick ticket we got, and while he's a joy to use for looping outside of the cases where I can't use the usual DSS systems (all of them aided by Nero Bride), just NP1 isn't enough to match the consistency of my other loopers (Or my absolute last resort loop option, Double Tamamo and Bride on Summer Jeanne). For example, the current Xmas event with Nightingale as the welfare has its box currency dedicated node being Lancers, and without a loopable Saber, I'm stuck using Zerkerlot. However he can't kill the second wave without extra buffs/debuffs, and more importantly, at Level 80 he can only wipe the third wave with either a Brave Chain, or having his one Quick card on that turn. While NP2 would be a lot more significant in the damage dealt, at least fully grailing him means that both Skadis can hit their crits to help with finishing the wave.
