Post by: Edible on November 09, 2017, 08:46:40 pm
The game took pity on me for blowing all my quartz on Tamamo with no luck, so it gave me Diseased Cosplay Saber instead.

This event was extremely silly.  I'm surprised they were allowed to get away with low percent 5* jokes.

Just to reiterate for the opening post, my friend code is 836,681,458 for the US version.

Anyway, this event is proving kind of annoying to farm without a Souji to make use of. I've got temp Nobu at the moment though, but I fully intend to get the permanent version. Not seeming to have great luck when it comes to dropping 5*s recently, but at least I completely ascended my Tamamo Cat and Caster Elizabeth with Drake and Waver on the way.

I mean, Riyo's work is considered official and it rides on that as a joke, honestly.

F/GO gives 0 fucks because it understands if you're here you've already gotten past that.

I'm just trying to farm up enough stuff to get at least one of those GUDA-O cards; hopefully to convert it toward more points to then get at least a couple of Nobus. Getting all of those skulls, though...

Also ugh I need those Meteoric Horseshoes but I don't think I'll have nearly enough to get it amongst everything else I want.

Also also shit luck on my roll; only got After Order out of the new stuff.

Now a lot of ppl feel what we felt 2 years ago.

On that note, it took all my quartz, even exchanging my remaining fragments to get Okita. I actually got NP3 Emiya in the process. That's around 300 quartz equivalent or so. It's less quartz than I used then, but since they renewed the quartz per summon, more or less the same...it's really brutal.

They could have made the golden heaven quest last until the end of the event instead of just 24 hours.

Though that Atalante, Emiya and Euryale roll left me really satisfied.

Seriously, she left me barely standing with just 60. I need to regain terrain before Scat or the christmas event comes. Santa Alter...
Sadly, I've missed the second Golden Heaven Quest due to napping, so I have to grind even more to get everything.

The first one is a total bitch to do, the second is pretty doable with Emiya and Nobbu (though fuck that dragon); but those aren't that good for points - most of the drops are the tea set items.

The real point pinatas are the once-a-day glod quests. Find someone with a GUDA-O CE (and maybe get one yourself; good luck) and go wild on the Nobuus.

I've been farming those as well (got two GUDA-O CE's to make use of), but I'm mostly trying to get the rarest tea set at the moment for the last two skulls and the GUDO-O CEs.

I haven't touched NA in a good while, but had sort of good luck on JP for halloween? By which I mean, I got a lot of event CEs so I was done with farming as soon as I finished the challenge quest which was a breeze (Hi there, Shinjuku Archer. Shall I present to you Summer Tamamo?).

The gags are ridiculous, it's like a Carnival Phantasm for F/GO (I am fine with this), but they really did put every ounce of Nobunaga-ness possible into Nobu's character. I've been obsessed with her since the Koha-Ace spread, so I had a great time reading about what it was she did to unleash a swarm of Keikenchi puchis, and hearing her event shop lines.

I managed to roll Tuber-chan and Redman - just do what I did and turn your computer screen into a shrine for Kirei while you roll.

So are there any gacha campaigns in which Okita shows up other than (I assume) the GudaGuda ones? I'd settle with NP2 Emiya for now, but I'd like to reunite Nobu with her bestie one day if possible.

Nope; GUDAGUDA exclusive. It's also only been run twice ever, two years apart, so...

Thanksgiving event feat. Scathach is incoming on NA. This is unique to NA. Starts 22 November.

Event includes a guaranteed paid 5-star gacha. The 5-star servant pool is Artoria, Okita, Tamamo, Altera, Orion, Vlad III, Drake, Waver, and Jeanne. For those new to this gacha type, all 30 quartz must be paid quartz - the bonus quartz you get free on top of the quartz you pay for is not counted.

Nope; GUDAGUDA exclusive. It's also only been run twice ever, two years apart, so...

I believe Okita also showed up in some of the paid guaranteed 5-star gachas.

Well, this turned me down massively. As a Free player I am, Guaranteed SSR Gacha will be a no go for me. Muhuhu~...

But either way... My eyes are now fixed on the Shishou. Since Okita left me bare (and didn't noticed me on top of that), I won't have much chances to get her. Maybe one roll or two... maybe even only one. I wasn't expecting her to be this soon here. Darn.

So they made the new year lucky bag earlier and combined with Scathach into one event? Makes me wonder if they are still going to do a new year lucky bag after this.

I wouldn't mind a Jeanne, but I'm holding out hope that my luck will allow me to grab Scatach since the only half-way decent lancer I have at the moment is regular Cu.

Unfortunately, most of the paid don't have limiteds. 90% of them are based on permanents, and the first only has Okita because the pool would be a bit small otherwise. And Okita is the most broken for that stage, basically.

The one that does has every 5* ever in one pool.

It was hell.

Aw damnit, they brought the Da Vinci CEs out for the next event?

Welp, probably not going to get a single damn one out of it, especially with the other prize of 2 of every ascension mat. 30 prisms/day does not go well into 1k prisms/CE.

Succumbed to temptation and dropped $40 on the game for a few extra tries at Scathach, wound up with nothing of note.  Brought it upon myself for questioning the luck necessary to get Okita and Jeanne in back to back banners off free quartz, I suppose.  Next time I'll be happy with what I got :V

Oh man, I don't know where to even start with Shishou's atrocious rolls... With Okita at least I got Atalante and Emiya NP2... but here... three knight's pride.
THREE?! NOOO-
Shishou didn't noticed me, therefore, I am dry again when it comes to the quartz storage. Feelsbadman

Meanwhile, at JP, I pulled Hassan Lobo by just using one ticket at Hassan's gacha.
Seems legit.

My NA code however is 468,680,095 and I'm already doing better for myself on this server than I was before! The only servant I had on JP that I haven't gotten back is Lancelot, and I got 2 five-star servants with my paid roll (https://puu.sh/yrLt9/569a07f2fc.jpg), bringing my total up to 5.

Apparently the banner changes daily for the period it runs, IIRC after Goldie it's AUO's turn, and after that Shishou will be back in the spotlight...alongside another SSR for the next couple days, and finally all three will be featured.

So is it more viable to grail a couple ace SSRs to 100 or a handful of your more commonly used SRs to 90 when your team is starting to get more concrete? I know people say to grail for love, but I take a somewhat more utilitarian approach than most (partly to suppress salt :V).

I tried Jack out via friend support, and goddamn is she a stargen monster. I do hope she isn't too essential for hard content though because with how my luck is looking I doubt I'll be able to get her now. Shishou does need them stars to truly shine.

Yes, JtR is top tier assassin, best 5* assassin or on par with King Hassan. High NP/crit gen and the NP bonus damage against females are all good civilization.

I rolled Jack gacha by accident when I meant to roll FP for 3* essences, and now I own a Marie. Viva la memes.

Huh. Didn't know Astolfo cameo'd in this event.

Also, f this drop chance for the SAlter ticket. I'm literally halfway through the first box with barely a dent in the higher-tier stuff.

Really, really wish I had Jack for the Expert mission...

I think the reason I'm so frustrated over the drop rates on the boxes is because I've used similar gachas before, and those not only had smaller total pools of stuff, it was possible (if you had the right item/could shell out some cash) to pull a handful, and pick out the item you wanted.

Anyway, almost cleared out box 2, I'm getting some momentum on getting grindy on the 40 AP quest (oh god I am so not prepared to level SantAlter for the 50 AP quest) for the mats and stars for the CE. I just have to hope I can keep ditt's Marie available as much as I can, since Tarasque into Crocea Mors into Guillotine Breaker is relatively easy to pull off and puts all of the Servants into really close kill range; or somehow hope one of my other friends somehow gets Jack. (Also, ditt, get the Holy Night CE already!  :V)

Prepare for an upcoming event (Saber Wars) soon, since it's a convenient source for materials. Generally, most servants are viable one way or another, so save quartz/tickets and roll during rate ups for those you like. The reddit is a great source for tips/translations.

Alright, thanks. I don't know if I my team cost allows me to fit in all these essences though. I'm already only using 4 members, and I'm already at 52 out of my 54 cost. Also, leveling up units is kind of annoying in this game. I got a nice stream of 4* level up stuff in the beginning, but that was it.

Post by: Ionasal kkll Solciel on January 06, 2018, 08:30:11 am
Yeah, Sabers are all at least 3*, so you expend a lot of cost on them. Even at 105 cost, I still can't fit everything I like into my formation because I have four gold Sabers and Caesar.

I should probably get to max breaking Purely Bloom so I can start sticking the Ulster CEs back on to the rest of my Sabers. And to make Altera hit for even more terrible, terrible damage than she's already doing.

re: leveling up - that's why you take the downtime after events to spam the Ember Gathering daily missions. The 40 AP ones give you at least eight gold XPs between the two classes that day and Berserker. Also you just got eighteen gold XPs from the special daily rewards - did you burn those all already?

Also also the hard part isn't leveling them up - it's ascending them. For example, Altera needs a crapton of Claws of Chaos and Meteorite Horseshoes to ascend. That means I have to fight Chimeras and Centaurs, and pray that RNJesus procs the minuscule drop rate.



Also also also unrelated, but one of my friends really loves Mata Hari as their waifu, given they've brought her all the way up to level 90.

Yeah, Sabers are all at least 3*, so you expend a lot of cost on them. Even at 105 cost, I still can't fit everything I like into my formation because I have four gold Sabers and Caesar.

My team is Mysterious Hero X+Crimson Land /w, Saber Lily/w Mikoto Bride Training, and Mash/w Truesho, and that's my entire team cost. I can't remember if I burned all the level up stuff. I know I burned a lot of them on Carmilla back when she was my best unit.

One more thing, how important is rarity in this game? How much of a handicap is using a low rarity unit like say Kiyohime over a 5*. It looks like the only way to decrease the gap is with a grail, but how effective is that?
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order 2.0: New Year, New Chaldea | Mist City
Post by: Tashi on January 07, 2018, 11:25:46 am
It all depends on the servant.

Rarity might trick you, but there are actually plenty of low rarity servants (much like Kojiro and Hans) who are just incredible. One great example for this is Robin Hood. Even if he's a 3*, he can do some good destruction if used correctly. His NP + poisoned enemy + any attack buffs other servants can give him. It helps a lot.

Of course, the thing with low rarity servants, since they aren't that resistant or strong, strategy must be used so they can be useful. (See Robin Hood's case above. If the enemy attacked with his NP isn't poisoned, it doesn't do that much damage.)

There are a ton of good-to-great 3*s in all classes that have some. To wit:

Saber: Caesar (excellent stargen with Crocea Mors; Incite and Charisma can make whoever you make crit crit a hell of a lot harder)
Archer: tons, but David (1-hit Evade for the entire party - blocks any AoE NP and is still damned useful against single-targets; also his NP gives Sure Hit to himself for the turn) and Euryale (basically the 5* Orion but cheaper and better in nearly every way)
Lancer: Cu, natch (Divine Protection from Arrows and Battle Continuation can mean a solo Cu can last for a good long while, and Gae Bolg is no slouch in damage, even for a Quick NP)
Rider: Yoshitsune (aka Ushiwakamaru; party NP and attack buffs!)
Caster: Hans (there's a reason why people tell you to run him if you don't have Waver, Tamamo, or Merlin; and that reason is buffs out the wazoo with his NP)
Assassin: Cursed Arm Hassan (reasonably good stargen, instant-kill NP with higher chance than Jing Ke's)
Berserker: Lu Bu (if you can get off his NP, it's one of the strongest around right now)
Shielder: Mash, obviously (taunt, invincibility, and damage cut make her - even as she is right now without her true NP - a defensive powerhouse)

Next up: Investigating whether I really have Anti-Catalyst (Saberface) or not. I mean, so far the only non-welfare saberface that has ever come home to me is MHX, and it can be argued that she's really an anti-saberface. :V

Bride is one of the best 5* Sabers you can find, even at late game. Her freedom to cast her skills on whoever she wants is pretty helpful already, making her a great support and attacker.
Orion is good, but very situational (Effective against male enemies)

Either way, grats for that Bride. Give her the love she deserves.

Iffy. Gawain has Magic Resistance B, which spoils the typical Stheno/Euryale strategy (charmlock). You're almost certainly not getting off Smile of the Stheno's instakill, either. You also don't have time to NP charge, either, since it's a duel fight, so you have to resort to K-scopes/iElem to even just get off Eye of the Euryale/Tri-Star Amore Mio.

I'd suggest Waver/David/Euryale instead.

Nero Bride is honestly an incredibly lackluster support and only excels when given a chance to be in an offensive support role. David will offer you a panic button and some backup damage if the cards treat you poorly. Waver will fill Euryale's bar instantly/almost instantly and be generally more effective than tamamo, honestly.

But Camelot's kinda still far off for you guys :v

I already rushed Setsubun in 2 days before it ended, which you aren't supposed to because of the servant cooldowns. I had to time it well and finished it with only 2 hours left to spare before it ended, so I cant be forced to rush everything. Also, it's not as exciting anymore as before since I already know what to expect, especially the 2 year gap of NA to JP...also I tried rolling down 400 quartz for Jack and got 8 4-star event CEs, and 2 nyatalanta...which was enough to cripple my enjoyment.

I can say, very proudly... that after just 90 SQ, I got Void Shiki.
I've never felt a peace of mind like this before.

Grats!

I think I'm sticking to tickets only for this banner since my 5* Saber collection is a bit too silly at the moment.  Doing so has netted me a Nursery Rhyme, so that's nice?  Only greater-than-3* Caster I've landed outside of Halloween Liz.

I've used three summoning tickets so far and have only gotten an extra Diarmuid and two CE's that were only good for limit breaking. The gacha seems to be teasing me more than usual this event.

Screw the over $300 price point and no dub, this was a golden opportunity for Aniplex to rerelease the movie boxset, and they missed it.

Also, screw these Rapunzels and their minimal spawns with no increased chance to appear.

Beat 60 total quests. Yeah, it's shit, and you'll do a bunch of grinding to get it done. Then the twenty runs of Parking Lot to unlock the next area.

Even Assassin Shiki works decently, since Rapunzels aren't particularly prone to not dying from the skill into NP. You have no idea how tempted I am to jam my Shiki's Mystic Eyes to level 10...

Indeed. That said though, this event has been the biggest drain on my QP since I started. At least some of the rooms give you a decent amount of QP for a first time clearing.

If anything, she's half the reason I'm pretty much drowning in cat figurines at this point.

The other half being that I have friends who have maxed out their own Assassin Shikis.

This JP valentines event was subtly annoying, I didn't even make it halfway on the total chocolate counter at the end but I bought out the shop easily and got all the valentines CE from my female servants and doge avenger from random selection items. I should've prioritized farming vials for chocolate rate up over farming shop drop currency.

Also they announced SR Asagami Fujino Archer for the KnK rerun, ???

Reminder for NA players: If you're still wanting the Mona Lisas, they'll leave the MP store at the end of this event. You can get up to 1500 MPs off this event, so if you're close, you might want to grind the hell out of the Parking Lot...

So it looks like Edmond Dantes doesn't show up in the upcoming Dudes Banner?  It looks like he gets released around this time (and we're getting some sort of limited event for him).  I want to roll for him a few times since Count of Monte Cristo is probably my favorite classical work.

So which one of the Chaldea Boys Collection CEs is the best for the freebie pick? I'm kinda gravitating towards Beasts Under the Moon, but Versus seems like it'd be a godsend in certain boss battles.

The 5* one that gives 50% NP gauge and 300% crit star gather rate is a fantastic general-use card, so I'm probably going with that.

The first couple of trials and the last trial are the hardest bits. For the first few, the enemy stats are frankly, absurd, and the odd assortment of classes are a bit of a headache to go around unless you look up the enemy setup. The middle set isn't that bad, considering two of them contain Rulers which suddenly makes Avenger actually useful and your choice of class more focused.

Still working on the last trial, because gah the boss ghost.

I'll just shamelessly admit that command spells and surplus quartz were used to complete most of the battles.

That said though, the last major event left me nearly completely devoid of QP, but with a surplus of almost everything else, so I've been slowly trying to build back up the stock I had beforehand.  It kinda helps that nothing has really interested me recently in terms of summoning (although still being unable to get anything above a 3* lancer continues to hurt me).

That's unfortunate. Liz Caster, Medea and Hans combo can do it pretty well. Slowly, but they can manage victory.
The REAL problem though is the Dantes fight. You just have to brute force him as fast as you can, because he crits so hard.

Honestly it's just a harsh reminder that I should build up the units I don't yet have built up, or stuff like this will happen again in the future.  I've basically ignored Casters since I'm usually playing with a friendly Waver, but it wasn't doable this time.  Alas.

A lot of the fights for me were basically "d'Eon keeps the heat off of my other servants with class advantage for as long as they can, and also Herc is in the backline to punch things if needed."

Exceptions were the giant ghost, which Hans is apparently able to solo if you can get Dantes and whatever other unit you brought to die, and Dantes himself where I just brought all of the single-target NPs I could and spent my command spells.

I have been wholly uninterested in the Saber Wars event now that I'm experiencing it for the first time. It feels tedious and clunky and I'm glad later events learned from mistakes from this event and wondering why didn't they fix the event before rerunning it. Anyways. Going to grind enough to get the Fous from the shop and the experience, and then see how many ahoges I can get before I get tired.

On the plus side, Mordred rate up soon. Even though she's already available. But still, Mordred rate up.

Jeanne Alter NP2  :V :V :V
Mordred
Beowulf
Hercules NP upgrade
11 5* CE (2030, Victor of the Moon, Another Ending, 3x Imaginary Around, Black Grail, 500-Year Obsession, Vessel of the Saint, 2x Ideal Holy King).

Makes up for my nothing rolls in JP's Lostbelt gacha, thankfully new Hayamin servant is permanent so I can just get spooked later.
695 quartz leftover to go towards Summer event and Memelin. :V

On a gold saber-related note, how serviceable is d'Eon as a tank? Good enough to hold off some strong lancers or am I just better off using Mash as usual?

Let's just say 3 turn taunt can be a lifesaver when used properly.
Do note that D'Eon's Evade only lasts for one turn, though, so they'll be tanking two turns of damage by themselves if they're not assisted by their allies.

Damn, and I've been stockpiling those for a good while. Some people have spent 2M FP apparently just for one, though, so that makes me feel better.

Also probably a time to mention I finally used my grails to get Euryale to gold portrait. Probably good by the time gorilla rears his ugly head.

Finished America and discovered a lovely little side effect of the 1/2 AP campaign.  I used the regening AP for the missions, but the overload AP for EXP cards.  It made power-leveling my core team to their limits ('til when I get the mats to ascend the lot of them) fairly quick.

Now time to go back and do the free quests. 

My current core team: d'Eon (l70), Iskandar (l70, NPl2, near maxed Fou), Emiya Assassin (l60, NPl2)

Edit--

What's the difference between Story Summoning and Event Summoning other than the rate up?

To the best of my knowledge, the difference is that the following servants are *only* available from the story gacha, unless they're part of the event banner (currently-JP-only ones behind spoiler tags):

Saber: Artoria Alter, Nero Claudius, Bedivere, Gawain, Munenori Yagyu
Lancer: Lancer Artoria (both of them), Li Shuwen, Jaguar Man
Archer: Nikola Tesla, Tristan, Emiya Alter
Rider: Queen Medb, Quetzalcoatl, Christopher Columbus
Caster: Gilles de Rais, Cu Chulainn, Medea Lily, Thomas Edison, Queen of Sheba
Assassin: Kato Danzou
Berserker: Cu Chulainn Alter
Avenger: Gorgon, Antonio Salieri

Reminder: the event follows Saber Wars conventions (event item obtainable CEs give damage buffs to the user/party depending), so stay away from the 2 and 3 BP quests until you have at least one of the gourd CEs for the damage boost.

Unless, y'know, you're extremely confident you can deal 1M damage to a Berserker that can occasionally smash your entire front line with one attack.

Also no Shuten yet. blarg

Which is why I hate enemy Berserkers.  And that is the only reason my L60 Shieldy is still on the front line despite being, IMHO, a little under-leveled and under powered for the event.

Do you mean Ibaraki? Shuten's the one in blue.

The flow seems to work along this path: Deal damage->Apply debuff and remove buffs->check death. This results in guts being useless, and invul/evade only blocking the NP.

This event counts damage only if you kill Ibaraki or hit the turn limit.

Also, god we haven't even dealt a third of her health yet this bar. I know it will accelerate a bit once everyone's MLB'ed the Yoshitsune CE and have a couple of Carps, but we're moving real slow, I think.

I've decided, ah, maybe I would like a third golden assassin as well (Not counting Shiki since not getting her would've required me to fall asleep during the whole Garden of Order event and thankfully I didn't do that).

It'll match up perfectly with my three golden berserkers: Heracles, Lancelot, and Fran.

Fun fact! Lancelot's still at level 1!

One of 2 10-rolls using Free Quartz:

1 Ryudoji Temple
2 Ushiwakamarus
1 Romulus
1 Eurayle
1 Mooncell Automaton
1 Darius III
1 Love Potion
1 Code Cast (NEW!)
and 1 A Fox Night's Dream (NEW!)

Two of 2 10-rolls using Free Quartz:
1 Anchors Aweigh
1 Alexander
1 Stuffed Lion
1 Divine Banquet
1 Jin Ke
1 Verdant Sound of Destruction (NEW!)
1 Burning Tale of Love (NEW!)
1 David
1 Eurayle
1 Self Geas Scroll

Summon Tickets (5 used out of 5)
1 Reciting the Subscription List
1 Jin Ke
1 Billy The Kid
1 Mana Gauge
1 Demon Boar

I was half-expecting an outcome like that, to be honest.

I'm not happy about it, but I'm not also not surprised. At least some of the Craft Essences seem cool...

*randomly popping in*

So, I have one little question, because I don't really understand this event - I'd probably have a better understanding after trying it out, but actually I can't quite participate just yet, halfway through clearing America right now. Anyways, I'm sure you guys know much more about it than I do -

Right now my strongest servant is a level 80 Assassin Emiya, and the closest behind him is Irisviel at level 51, and a level 43 Proto Cu.
Is this event going to completely destroy me, or will I be able to do something on at least the lowest difficulty?  :derp:

I only started playing somewhat recently so I've not really had time to try and fully level anything more than just one servant so far.
Title: Re: Fate/Choco Order 2.018: Bananarama
Post by: Kiro on May 17, 2018, 06:24:28 am
Wew. Managed to do a 3 BP stall with a MLB Ushi CE and one Carp.
[attach=1]
Used the recommended Orion/Waver/Tamamo stall comp with Mashu, Georgios, and Cu backline. Waver died about 5 turns in when everything hit him including the left arm NP. Orion died about 3 turns later when the right arm NPed... and I didn't bloody know it was an AoE NP. Had the Mashu Taunt/Invul up thinking everything would be good.

And then down to the home stretch:
[attach=2]
I burned 2 command seals to have Cu NP each arm. Along with the Gandr stun and then activating Cu's dodge, barely clutched it out. I'll wait till I get a few more Carp and my seals regenerate before I try that again.

By the way, Guts is still useful for non-NP Ibaraki turns because one of the turns before, she one shot Cu with a crit hit.

I spent 90 quartz and got 2 5* CEs, 1 4* CE and my 2nd Fran. No sultry drunk oni unless I get lucky with the event tickets. :(

Lastly, any of you on my friend's list, can you leave one of your supports with the +50 bond CE on during events? (I know ditt did). I always find it illogical during events when people give every single servant of theirs an event CE. Chances are only 1-3 of your possible servants will get picked for the event (Caster and All usually). Why put a Carp on that lvl 40 Robin Hood which has a 0% chance of being picked? Put the bond CE on him, or the Friend Point CE on him and that 0% is now non-zero. Since AP isn't really getting used this event, I still need to use AP up farming embers or mats.

Is this event going to completely destroy me, or will I be able to do something on at least the lowest difficulty?  :derp:

The lowest difficulty I think has Ibaraki at 300k hp. Any friend you use with a Lvl 80+ attacker and an Ushi CE can singlehandedly carry you. The medium difficulty (2 BP) is 1 million HP and can eventually be done once you balance out how to support your high level attacker. You would either call in a Lvl 80+ friend attacker and support him with Irisviel and Hans Andersen. Or you can try to make Emiya your attacker and borrow a Lvl 90 Zhuge Liang/Waver to buff Emiya.

My ID is 252,310,197. This is an open invitation to all. I've got 5 spots open now so I'll check in and see if people want to get added if you let me know your ingame name.

I've reached 100M damage points, still no CE drop. I want to go back and farm 1M for gourds but Ibaraki is currently only around 50%.  Doing 6M is a tiring game of save/load and choosing the result that is best for me.:ohdear:

My ID is 252,310,197. This is an open invitation to all. I've got 5 spots open now so I'll check in and see if people want to get added if you let me know your ingame name.
My in-game name is Kasu if you're still looking to add people.

Also, if anyone else doesn't have me but wants to add me, my ID is 836,681,458.

Anyway, not confident enough to try out the third raid quest again after yesterday's fiasco. That said, with all the JAlters running around with the 200% damage increase, taking out the 1M Ibaraki is super easy. It helps that I've got Waver and Drake backing her up though.

Actually came pretty close to killing the 3BP one now that I have a MLB Shana-Oh and 3 Golden CEs . Just need to refine my strategy a bit more now, and getting better RNG would probably help too.

The lowest difficulty I think has Ibaraki at 300k hp. Any friend you use with a Lvl 80+ attacker and an Ushi CE can singlehandedly carry you. The medium difficulty (2 BP) is 1 million HP and can eventually be done once you balance out how to support your high level attacker. You would either call in a Lvl 80+ friend attacker and support him with Irisviel and Hans Andersen. Or you can try to make Emiya your attacker and borrow a Lvl 90 Zhuge Liang/Waver to buff Emiya.

My ID is 252,310,197. This is an open invitation to all. I've got 5 spots open now so I'll check in and see if people want to get added if you let me know your ingame name.
Cool, thanks for the advice. Just finished clearing out the story last night, so I'll try my hand at this and see what I can do.

I should probably leave my ID here too then - I wouldn't say I have any particularly great servants or CEs for said servants just yet, but if anyone wants to add me, I've got like 44 slots open  :derp:
My ID is 039,794,959
Level 80 Assassin Emiya is perhaps the only noteworthy thing I have on support right now, I think?

I have Jack and Heracles in my list of support servants, so if you want/need either of those folks as part of your team, go ahead and add me. Can't recall how many slots I have left, though.

Hard difficulty is still a bit too much for me, but I'm now able to clear medium quite comfortably. Big thanks to you guys who added me too, you all do some insane amount of damage to her

I have my first copy of the Shana-oh CE now, so I stuck it on Emiya. That oughtta make him actually more helpful as a support, now. Which is nice, since he's about all I have to offer lol

Well okay then; we're nearly done with Day 1, and it looks as though that now we have a few MLB Shana-Ohs lying around all over the place, we're actually on pace to avoid seeing what happens if we somehow fail to wipe out the banana in time.

In other news, reminder that if you want those damn Crystallized Lores at the end of the damage tree, you're going to have to force decent progress out of the 3BP quests, since we simply do not have enough possible BP without Quartz to do 300 L2 raids.

Also remember the Class for the drunks and the Hands of Doomy Doom are going to change tomorrow with the dailies! Make sure you swap out your Support CEs and your offense Servants then!

I'm having some trouble beating 3BP reliably without command seals.  Just can't quite hit the 6M threshold.

Current lineup is Jalter (Shana) / Gilgamesh (MLB Shana) / Friend Waver (Carp) / Mash (Carp) / Angra (Carp) / Ushiwakamaru (Carp).

Other potential options are Okita, Carmilla NP3, and Liz.  I don't think my other options would be worthwhile against Ibaraki.  Unfortunately due to cost limitations I need to run cheap servants in the back row to fit all the 5* CEs.

Any ideas?

I'm having some trouble beating 3BP reliably without command seals.  Just can't quite hit the 6M threshold.

If you can't just kill Ibaraki and her ridiculous 6M of HP, just go for surviving.
Make a setup just to survive AND cause some damage. Here some tips.

1st: The hands can be quite a problem, believe it or not. Their NP can time you really badly if you don't take care of them. (Like, right when there's only one turn left for Cú's evade to be available again)
2nd: Don't bang your head too much in killing Ibaraki, and don't feel bad about not managing to do so. Most people are just surviving against her, doing around 4M of damage, or maybe 5M. Some, of course, kill her, but not everyone can.
3rd: Personally, what I did for the Archers one was taking a taunt/evade team and having a support being the main damage dealer. I used Leonidas, Cú, Cú Alter (Support), Mashu, Cú Proto and David. All of them with defensive skills. This leads me to the 4th point.
4th: Just in case you dont' know, Ibaraki's NP removes all buffs AFTER the damage calculation. This means you can survive if you have an evade applied to the targeted servant. This can be tricky sometimes, however, as having Guts applied too at that moment can screw the strategy a bit. You need to plan the timings a bit.

All in all, I could deal some decent damage to her with this setup. Mostly leaving her at 2.5M or 1.5M before the turn limit hits.

Decent. MLBed, it's a 10% buff to EXP if it's anywhere in the party, which stacks if you somehow have a friend with one (as with Mona Lisa). That said, there's a level cap, so once you get there, it's utterly worthless until we hit Shinjuku and the level cap goes up.

Bring it to any 40 AP daily for best effect.


Back on banana news, Hassou Tobi is actually pretty brutal against her thanks to Tengu's Strategy bringing it faster; it's just too bad her survivability is relatively low, and I don't think I can manage bringing her in on the 3BP. At this rate, I may just have to wait until Lancer day and beat her with my stat stick Altera.

Post by: Leon゠Helsing on May 19, 2018, 12:23:38 pm
Gotta say, Nero Bride helps much more than I anticipated she could as a hybrid support/damage dealer in 3BP. I can kill both the hands and Ibaraki rather consistently now, though it does become a bit of a nail-biter at times. My party was Scathach (Lv. 90 - 6/10/10 - MLB Shana-oh)/Nero Bride (Lv. 98 - 8/10/6 - Shana-oh)/Support Waver (Lv. 90 - 10/10/10 - MLB Golden)/Mash (Lv. 60 - 10/10/10 - Golden)/Andersen (Lv. 65 - 4/8/4 - Golden)/Cu (Lv. 70 - 5/6/4 - Golden).

As an aside, sometimes I wish overkill damage was counted too.

For this event, I haven't been as active as needed to get to the best rewards, since not getting Shuten after using 210 quartz and 50 tickets (as f2p) has made me a little bit depressed.

I need a better way to generate stars for 3BP... (currently shiki is filling in that role).

Any ideas?

Besides stalling out, I'm wondering if Okita would be better to use in your frontline as your 2nd damage dealer. She generates stars like mad and more crits really improves your chances. I bet she would help salvage more of those "dead turns," the ones where the cards you draw are sub-optimal to your current plans. Jalter and Gil are a bit redundant in terms of their roles (primary MLB-Shana dmg) so I wouldn't put both in. Try Okita with a Carp maybe, or the other Shana-Oh and have her help support Jalter or Gil. I'd also put George instead of Angra since George can also taunt and should be the same cost.

Well, congrats.

Haha, thanks. Got her on the 4th event ticket so I can now be in drunken peace for 2 weeks. That feeling of cautious optimism as the gold sparkles appear and the class card was revealed to be Assassin... gacha/gambling is still shitty. The highs are quite high, but the lows are pretty low and far too common.

I'm still running the Orion/Waver/Tamamo comp and it's... stable. Objectively, it's not boring, but I range between 4.5m dmg to the 6m kill, the latter occurs maybe 1 out of 5 times. The Tamamos I'm using usually have the +3 Gourd on instead of Carp so my Gourd efficiency is +100%, but I don't get a kill every time. I waste 4 or 5 turns each run killing the hands with normal attacks.... so maybe I should swap George or the backline Cu for an AoE servant. Just me rambling, but I appreciate how the numbers work out for this raid and that fine tuning your runs has made the team-building relevant compared to every other event.

I'm honestly not sure how I can get into the 3BPs, mostly because I'm pretty shite at levelling my Servants and only have a few more than halfway up third Ascension. I don't think I'll pull it off while she's on Caster mode, since my only single-target heavy damage Rider is Ushi, and I don't really have a good footing when it comes to stall/defensive Servants. I'm wagering whether I should swap out Mr. George for David or D'Eon.

Also yay for losing 8 BP because I tried the 3BP twice and only lasted around 10 turns even with save scumming, then two more just now because I'm a bloody derp and forgot I was doing the dailies.

Also also, apparently the banana's not immune to ID. If you pull off the miracle, it counts the entire life bar, so you'd burn down 6M in one shot in both the damage tree and the banana's health if you pulled it off in the 3 BP. Probably best saved for Rider day, though, since you'd probably have to stack two Assassin Shikis and a Saber Shiki, all with level 10 Mystic Eyes to have even the smallest chance to nail her on her Lines of Death.

In other news I don't think I'm going to be tackling 3BP at all until the eventual rerun. I have all the necessary servants to potentially kill her with the F2P Robin Hood strategy, but because I only started playing recently - nowhere near the necessary amount of ascension/skill up materials in order to do so.

I'm fine with 2BP though as long as I remain able to consistently off her in one turn after dealing with the hands. I know I won't be able to clear out the shop doing only 2BP but I can get most of what I care about at least.

I took your advice and while I'm not quite winning with the success rate I want, I can at least beat it without command seals with your setup.  Thank you!  (I also swapped out plugsuit for Chaldea Standard, which I haven't determined is better yet or not)

What I really should be doing is leveling up a Cu Chulainn to replace Ushi for that OP evade.  That would probably give me a guaranteed win since I could just stall out the last few turns if absolutely necessary.

But if there's a good chance I'll be able to clear out the shop, that is good news to me, I wasn't certain if I could do that or not but I was gonna certainly try for it.

The best part about Assassin Day is that since most of the defensive Servants have at least two Arts cards, you can bring in Medea and just spam RULE BREAKER all over the place.

EDIT: I'm glad I swapped over to D'Eon as my primary tank. Beautiful Appearance can basically hard counter the banana's first Heretic Prayer and Great Grudge of Rashomon if you're running any Mystic Code that has evade/invuln. Two literally free turns with only the first having any sort of potential threat to the party (and even then, the banana has to cast one of her two AoEs to do anything) does wonders for your damage/NP output. (Plus, we've already passed Archer Day, so they only need to worry about getting nuked by Berserker Day and the few turns of possible Kritskrieg from the banana herself.)

Saber Day; arms are back to self-buffing, but Left Arm is again outsped by the banana.

Also, can you imagine the carnage this event would have had if Robin Hood still had his original JP NP behavior? Paired with Shuten's NP, 6M would have been easy pickings.

(Also, 1.5M burst aside, Medea still outstrips Robin in damage for me, which is weird.)

I've been far too reliant on the Scathach/Nero Bride/Waver frontline combo for 3BP to really figure out another strategy, how do I do this in a way that doesn't make me hate myself? I experimented with a Nero Bride/Emiya/Waver combo, and while I managed to survive and Emiya managed to nuke the hands before they can really do anything dangerous (i.e. cast the NP charge on death buff), NP3 and all, I didn't exactly manage to kill Ibaraki.

Graduated to 2BP and consistently winning.

Currently using l75 Iskandar w/ LB'd Shana, L60 Shieldy w/ Carp, Support L90ish Waver preferably w/ a LB'd Carp.  Backline has d'Eon w/ LB'd Carp, the other two are basically irrelevant as they hold booze boosters as their CE's.

Post by: Ionasal kkll Solciel on May 25, 2018, 07:21:01 am
Since we're talking setups, here's the ridiculous shit I'm using:

Shiki (Assassin)/Waver (SUPPORT)/D'Eon/Medea Lily/Mash/Irisviel

since I can't use Medea against Riders.

My whole early strategy focuses on keeping Shiki and D'Eon alive at least until the first string of NPs from the banana. As long as D'Eon doesn't die before Left Arm charges, I can block both the first Heretic Prayer and Grudge of Rashomon since I use the basic Chaldea Mystic Code instead of the "normal" plugsuit because I need healing. Waver and D'Eon definitely die to Blustering Threat (Shiki survives thanks to Eye of the Mind), and then it's literally panic and try not to get wiped.

I only cleave about half of the banana's health, and often am just left with a single Servant on literal fumes thanks to Iris. Usually less.


EDIT: I just noticed that the hands will prioritize clearing their debuffs when they have a non-NP turn, so maybe a team that keeps them clearing debuffs will help on 3BP?

Yeah, definitely not going to roll anything next couple of events to get over the loss of 210 SQ only for Astolfo and two Carmillas.

Anyway, it's 'Zerker day today; and we're all basically back to square one! Definitely think about bringing in an AoE nuker if you aren't already just to trample the hands because no one wants three Berserker potential Kritskriegs, even if one of them likes to heal the others for 10% health.

Definitely trample the hands just because they can buff the banana's crit rate.

Also. REMEMBER TO USE ALL YOUR RICE BALLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They don't carry over, and you get crap QP off of them. Even if you can only manage 2BP, even if there's no chance you'll get to the next damage summit, USE THEM.

Also also, Necromancy shenanigans are the best thing ever; especially since it can't be cleansed by Great Grudge of Rashomon. "Why! Won't! You! Bloody! Die! Already!!!!"


EDIT: I'm having mixed feelings for Berserker Day. On the one hand, I'm actually getting within arms' reach of terminating the oni thanks largely to Buster Brave Photon Rays. On the other, I'm salty now that not only is it still somewhat of a coin flip whether or not I get trainwrecked by lucky crits sniping my tanks before they can properly block, I probably could have been using Altera during Lancer Day; I just decided I needed the arms alive more to block potential crits than actually having damage output, because I know I stand no chance of actually killing the banana outright.

It's always a coin flip, only worse on Berserker Day due to the DEF debuff when Ibaraki reaches those HP threshold. :ohdear:

Hopefully NA players can take down Ibaraki without me, I'm farming bond points at 1BP after reaching 400M damage points.  (Only 2 Ushi CE dropped for me):V

I can't find the motivation to grind out 46 battles in a row, I can hit 200 million and squeeze one more Crystallized Lore out of this event if I do so, but this got really monotonous once I hit the point where 2BP became too easy but 3BP is still not possible

Really want that lore tho  :ohdear:

Edit: What's up with this upcoming event, I see people dreading it in various places but I don't know anything about it (or what's a good resource to look up event info, for that matter)

Is there anything I can be working on in preparation for it? Might break up the dullness of endless 2BP grinding a bit

Going with this as my zerk team:

Frontline: l80 Iskandar w/ lb'd Shana, l60 Shield w/ Carp, ~l90 JAlter w/ lb'd Shana
Backline: l71 d'Eon w/ lb'd Carp, l70 Emiya  (Asn) w/ Carp, l8 BOOBS!-- er-- Mata Hari w/ Kiyohime booze CE

Beat down Ka-- Ibaraki and ignore hands.  That way she only attacks once while the lot of them occasionally don't do much (like heal each other when at full health).  If the stars align, JAlter can potentially one-shot her

For everyone that isn't experienced with this hellish hell called Journey to the West, here is a helpful guide. (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1onO3MMmJKC3HjHe2N4YZJl1Ihyiyzda0TIj460oCcYU/htmlview#)

Basically, the deal with the event is that it's a VERY grindy one. It's infamous for making you eat apples (including rainbow ones) to farm IF you don't have a lot of the Gacha CE's that drop the currencies. You can either go easy and farm what you need to clear the store from those items you need, or can go madman and farm the hell out of the nodes without the CE's...

It's recommended that, if you don't own the Gacha CE's (a lot of them), to just farm the materials you are low with.

I have David, Lu Bu, Euryale, and Medusa.  Only Euryale is not L1.  I have a feeling this event is going to be a combo of the more tedious/annoying parts of the last two events.  After JttW, what's the next "bad" event?

Thanks for dropping the guide for us though! I'll probably just stick the needed servants in the back as per usual since I definitely don't have 'em leveled (well, except Nightingale, but it looks like she's not really useful until the second half).

Order history says I've spent $240 on FGO since day 1. $80 was on this event trying (and failing) to get Shuten.

This is literally the most I've ever spent on a single game series. (EDIT: Wait, no, I've spent more on a certain tabletop game and on a certain VN series...)

(Mostly) worth it. (Damnit Shuten.)

In banana news, remember that we have four extra hours to nuke this girl, thanks to the event ending at the day rollover instead of the quest rollover. Keep a BP in waiting just in case we end up killing her just in time to nab those 10 SQ so you at least get the banana kill event SQ too. I still haven't hit 300M yet, but I'm only about 45M away and still have a ton of jelly donuts (glod and otherwise) to grind my way through.

I don't have any other expensive hobbies besides gaming, so I don't usually have anything that I particularly want to use my spending money on, after setting a portion aside. I might roll the gacha occasionally.

DAWN OF THE FINAL DAY

With 1T of the banana's health remaining, players are dropping like flies as they reach their damage caps, BP caps, and patience caps. Will we successfully shatter her and keep the string of unbroken decisive victories on all servers intact? Or will we falter at the last possible second, and lose 10 SQ and be the first group ever to lose a F/GO raid?

Stay tuned, for the exciting (not really) conclusion!

I believe that comes after the raids are officially over (as in the time expires) but someone do correct me if I'm wrong.

Also it seems like we probably did get some mysterious phantom damage out of nowhere after all, because she had a good ~600b left while I was actively burning riceballs, and then suddenly she was dead once I entered the next fight. Unless my counter was just lagging behind for a bit.

Edit: I was able to hit my goal of 200 million, for the Crystallized Lore as well. I'll probably continue to burn the rest of my riceballs on 2BP anyway to grab more gourds to finish off the mana prisms and exp from the shop - not going to worry about pieces or monuments since those drop like candy while I'm trying to get skill gems.

Just squeezed out 10 more rounds of 2BP in the final 38 minutes of the raid, thanks to Kiro's Gilgamesh being just absolutely godly for 2BP.

Just wow. I had to step away earlier and couldn't finish off my riceballs, I didn't think I'd get to use them all up but I barely managed it now that I'm home. Final total is 221 million here, and I cleared out the shop except for pieces/monuments.

Out of curiosity, how much have real money we spent on SQ?

I spent 2 $80 packages earlier, then recently I saw one of the random Costco iTunes Card deals (a $200 card for $165) and bought 2 of those. So it's pretty much 4 more $80 packages with the 5th one being complimentary. However, I've only used $160 of those and I don't pull more of the balance into my FGO account until I run out of actual quartz. Keeps the temptation away. I usually throw about 90 quartz for event banners and cut myself off there; although I was weak for Okita (120) and Jalter (150) and didn't succeed there. This balance will hopefully last through the Summer event, but Ruler Martha is to die for (and I wouldn't say no to Caster Marie either). So yea, gonna throw 3 10-rolls at genki Sanzou and hope for her or Li Shuwen.

I did 800 million damage by the end (75 3 BP runs on Day 7). Gil, Double Waver, Jeanne with Kaleido, Mashu, Sasaki. Tried to make it as brainless as possible, Jeanne NP tanks Ibaraki NP, kill or do as much damage as possible depending on how long Gil survived. I had free time over the Memorial Day weekend so I'd eat a Golden riceball, do 3 BP runs which took pretty much 35 minutes, watch an episode of anime, repeat. That... was not a terrible day at least.

Let's Go West!!! The shop is so good... but everyone says you need to prioritize your purchases or fall to EX Madness. HEARTS, GOLD GEMS, AND FEATHERS!!!!!

I forgot those card deals exist. Doubt I could prod my parents into letting me buy them, though (I'm the only one in the family without a membership, lol).

Final damage 361,139,424 because I was a derp and forgot that I kind of need to use the jelly donuts throughout the event because I was working. I was kind of hoping the bonus battle with Shuten would be harder, but I get why it was that difficulty.

If you can't find a decent Shuwen or if you're facing off against a bunch of Sabers, go with someone with the 4* CE instead.

I've arrived at the farm for Gold Pills/100's of Talismans stage.

This is Beyond Hell.
What I did to make this phase a lot less of a pain for myself, was I found a friend who had Arjuna with the pill CE equipped. You'll get a tiny bit less pills than a Sanzang support, but the fact that level 90 Arjuna can completely wipe the third wave with his NP more than makes up for it, for me. (Edit: Gilgamesh might do the same thing, but I already had an Arjuna equipped like such among my friends. But I'm sure he's another good option)

I'd rather not spend 9 extra turns taking out those centaurs who are mysteriously a lot meatier than the previous two waves. Those two gave me more trouble than Mordred ever did.

of course none of that matters if you already have no trouble actually taking out the enemies, find a sanzang in that case i guess

It is a lot of repeated grinding though thanks to the sheer number of pills you need, you'll probably have 450 talismans long before 600 pills. I'm at 377 and I still need 247 more pills.

----------------------------------------

Also SEVERE LACK of Octuplet Crystals on my end. Astolfo has been sitting at level 60 for 2 weeks now and I cannot ascend him because they won't drop, and now I need to spend my AP on this event so I can't even try farming more just yet.

You'll get a tiny bit less pills than a Sanzang support, but the fact that level 90 Arjuna can completely wipe the third wave with his NP more than makes up for it, for me. (Edit: Gilgamesh might do the same thing, but I already had an Arjuna equipped like such among my friends. But I'm sure he's another good option)

I'd rather not spend 9 extra turns taking out those centaurs who are mysteriously a lot meatier than the previous two waves. Those two gave me more trouble than Mordred ever did.

of course none of that matters if you already have no trouble actually taking out the enemies, find a sanzang in that case i guess

It is a lot of repeated grinding though thanks to the sheer number of pills you need, you'll probably have 450 talismans long before 600 pills. I'm at 377 and I still need 247 more pills.

----------------------------------------

Also SEVERE LACK of Octuplet Crystals on my end. Astolfo has been sitting at level 60 for 2 weeks now and I cannot ascend him because they won't drop, and now I need to spend my AP on this event so I can't even try farming more just yet.

Pretty much doing that now, but instead of Arjuna I have a Gil with the CE.

Got a random 3 great heroes CE drop... immediately after I purchased the 4th one from the shop for 300 pills. Since there is a guaranteed one later according to guides, I am instantly filled with regret having purchased that CE from the shop. I mean there is no way I could have known, really, but that's 300 less pills I would have needed to grind.

Now I'll end up with six copies of the CE, and it still won't be worth it to MLB it...

Just got a 3GH CE drop... AFTER I've finished the Talisman side of the event (and some time after I bought the 4th from the shop).

My Talisman farm side is fairly solid; l70 Emiya (Asn), l62 Shuten, and a Friend l80 JtR.
My Currency farm side, not so much; l80 Iskandar and a Friend l80 Alteria (Alter Lancer) have so far carried me, barely.  But I haven't settled on a #2.  My assassins would get eaten during rounds 1 & 2 (so Shuten sits on the backline). d'Eon would get 1 shotted by Arjuna, and my Tamano Cat would get 1HK'd too.

I seem to have fairly decent setups for talisman farming and currency farming since I'm fairly successful each time.

Talisman farming involves a Lv. 80 Shiki and a Lv. 80 Carmilla, usually with a friend Shuten or Heroine X. The general rule is to grind NP levels until the final wave and (hopefully) completely annihilate the dragon and Nightingale, though I've always got a Lv. 90 regular Jeanne as backup.

Currency farming involves a Lv. 90 Drake and a Lv. 80 regular Nero with a friend Shuwen. I try to grind their NP during the first wave, though someone always seems to lose it in the second. Once the third wave hits, try to all-out attack Arjuna and Karna with the NPs right out of the gate, though Arjuna usually survives because Shuwen almost always seems to be on the receiving end of the Ashura's NP draining attack. As before though, I've got Jeanne as backup, though I'm also sporting a Lv. 1 Lu Bu and David for better currency gains.
Title: Re: Fate/Choco Order 2.018: Bananarama
Post by: Rei Scarlette on June 04, 2018, 06:05:27 am
Farming talismans is pretty easy here, I have a solid setup in my Lv80 Assassin Emiya and a friend's grailed Assassin Emiya with MLB talisman CE. The wyverns and the dragon at the end mean nothing since it's practically raining crits, and Nightingale goes down quickly enough. With a full loadout of talisman CEs it's rather painless grinding.

Currency on the other hand is giving me some real major trouble. That Assassin Emiya is still my best servant, and the daemons just tear him to shreds, so I have to keep him in the back line until the end. Astolfo deals with them reasonably enough, but because I've still been unable to get any Octuplet Crystals, I am not able to take Astolfo any higher than Lv60, so it is a very slow process. The daemons usually have my entire frontline worn down to ~40% before they are gone. I try to keep them alive with Hans, but maybe I should try to bring out Irisviel again for that.

I have not lost to Arjuna and Karna yet, but I had to use a command spell on my first attempt. My best shot is to either take support Drake/Santa Alter to help beat down the Daemons, or support Karna/Lancer Alter to NP both of them and finish off Arjuna quickly since he NPs faster than Karna does.

Either way every currency run feels like a real struggle right now. If only I could ascend Astolfo then at least the first two waves would be easier.

Edit: Another surprise great heroes CE. That makes 7 in total now? (including the shop ones) If I get one more I'm just going to MLB it.

Post by: Ionasal kkll Solciel on June 05, 2018, 03:12:51 am
Reminder that the 100 Talisman free quest does not drop Talismans, so don't bother with the Shop CE; if you don't have enough of the gacha CEs, you can always just stick whatever you want on your Servants - like, say, the i Element or Kaleidoscope on whatever Rider you're using on the frontline to painlessly wipe the first wave of Demons.

tl;dr Make a new party just for the Talisman free quest with whatever you have of David, Lu Bu, Li Shuwen, and Xuanzang; whatever you have of the gacha CEs; and whatever else, make sure it either obliterates Demons (if in front) or is your strongest Lancer (or Saber, if you can nuke Arjuna easily enough or have space for one) (if in back).

Between d'Eon, Liz and Stheno, I'm picking Stheno. Liz will only add on the huge amount of dragon fangs which I'm already lacking, and d'Eon will add on to my lack of saber gems. Sumanai shall be ignored and I already have the rest of the six. :V

Wow, this is a pleasant surprise. I'm going to get Carmilla as she's the only one I'm missing. And a few tickets for Scathach.

It's interesting that they are planning this during the 2nd week of Go West! The 3 Million Campaign could have easily fit into the week after Go West and before Onigashima, it's what JP did. Which suggests... we are speeding up and are going to jump right into Onigashima on June 13th. What else are they going to give us on a dead week now that the 3 Million Campaign got bumped up one week? The only thing I see on the JP calendar is half AP embers. And maybe they'll squeeze in an Arjuna/Karna banner although it would have made more sense to have that from the 6th to the 13th. Pushing Onigashima up from June 13th to June 27th would allow Camelot to be released on June 27th which brings Ozymandias and co into existence and allows them to appear on the 1 year anniversary banner just like JP. If that indeed is the case, talk about going full throttle.

I don't really mind going right into Onigashima after Go West, but it'll just end up delaying the Strengthening Quests till after Onigashima ends. You'd have to squeeze the Strengthenings you want while clearing Camelot in the above scenario. So... the week break after Go West wouldn't be bad, but I'm inclined to think we won't get it now.

Aaaaand another surprise great heroes drop. That makes 8, time to MLB one. I'll stick that on Assassin Emiya for my supports I guess, since the talisman farm quest is full of Riders.

I don't know who I'll pick, I'll have to give it some serious thought. I started with Tama-Cat and Marie, and eventually picked up Siegfried who is currently my best Saber despite his lack of overall greatness.

Between the rest of the lot, my favorites are Stheno and Elisabeth, and I don't really care for Carmilla or Martha. I don't have any gold archers yet, so picking up Emiya might help me out a lot, on the other hand I can also see d'Eon being very useful.

I have no idea who I'll end up going with. But I guess I have a while to decide on it.

The event bonuses would be the only reason I'd pick him really, since I'd probably never use him in-game otherwise.  Gil is such a stupid catch-all problem solver that I only feel like investing in an archer if they have a single target NP (probably Chloe unless I get lucky for the summer event).

Octuplet Crystals are in the event shop

I hadn't looked into what the shop contents for the second half of the event were previously, so this is a very nice surprise. Finally my Astolfo isn't stuck at level 60, so indirectly this second half of the event has made the remainder of the first half MUCH easier for me. Thank god, because I was getting real tired of barely scraping a victory out of the Tianzhu quest.

Failed to land a Scathach on my first 10x Summon.  Got a Trap instead.

10x Summon 2:  Martha
10x Summon 3: Siegfried...
Silver Lancer...  *zap* Turns Gold...  Liz
10x Summon 4: Gold Lancer right off the bat...  SCATHACH!!!

Now I have...
2 Gold Sabers (d'Eon and Siegfried)
3 Gold Riders (NP2 Iskandar, Astolfo, and Martha)
1 Gold Caster (Helena), I'm not counting Iris since I can't ascend her.
2 Gold Lancers (Scathach and Liz)
2 Gold Assassins (Shuten and NP2 Emiya (Asn))
1 Gold Berserker (Tamamo Cat)

No Gold Archers.  Guess that makes my choice of a free 4* servant easy.

Now that I'm able to finish Tianzhu with relative ease, and burned off the rest of my 1100 talismans that I was hoarding because ~~difficulties~~, it seems like Tathāgata took its place as "the quest I need to farm a lot but is too hard for my team to clear it reliably".

Caster trash mobs plus a Lancer boss is real suffering for me. And any damage dealt to LAltoria is wasted until I get rid of those snekladies, since one of them has an obscene HP recovery that I didn't know about (I thought it would be roughly the same as the others) that completely reversed all the damage I did...

My Astolfo is better now, but he certainly won't be dealing damage more quickly than supersnek can heal. So I pretty much have to take a Rider support I guess, and try to slowly beat down LAltoria without a Saber after...

--------------------------------

Edit: So this has been working fine, so far. Whole frontline filled with Riders (Astolfo, Medusa, Santa Alter support) to deal with sneks without getting beat up too much, and d'Eon in the very back row to clean up whatever is left of LAltoria's HP pool at the end of the fight. It's pretty slow, but safe at least. Drake might be a little faster but I haven't found one with the orb CE equipped yet, so I'm just gonna take the safe route with Santa.

Post by: Ionasal kkll Solciel on June 08, 2018, 04:35:22 am
If you can find a Mordred with the CE, I suggest you use her - Clarent Blood Arthur deals extra damage to LArtAlt because Saberface. It's AoE, which won't be enough to wipe her or the sneks in one shot, though. Most gold Sabers are decent to good against her, anyway. She's Dragon-type, so Siggy can max damage her without Mr. George to setup, Altera mashes her into paste, regular Altria is Altria, Okita murderfaces everything Lancer...

Just try to focus down the Queen in back first, since that's the one who uses Golden Harp (the Giant only uses Silver Harp, which is 500/target). Save a Hippo/Pegasus drive-by for the last wave.

Solid advice there, thank you. Only had enough AP left to try it out once right now, but it went a lot more smoothly with Mordred than whatever I was doing before. Clarent and Hippo together was enough to wipe the snakes and then Mordred was able to finish up the rest quickly.

This is much less of a pain, so hopefully it should be smooth sailing for a while. Just have to pick up two more Ox CEs now and then the lore.

I kind of love the Berserker-fest. On the one hand, all but one enemy is a Chimera, which is one of the hardest enemies to tackle, in pairs; on the other, the Servant Berserker is Heracles. One of the Lotus Servants will almost immediately one-shot him if they have their NP up, almost certainly if they've completed their special quests and got their special buff.

Yeah, Berserker-fest has been one of the easiest for me to handle so far. The next one after is actually just a little easier on my servants considering its a bunch of rider-types and then Scathach - so Assassin Emiya has no trouble just cutting through those while Support Saber builds up NP for Scath.

Haven't done the Deva node yet, but I'll get to that shortly and see how it goes. I need a couple more orbs before I can go in.

At the rate things are going though I might clear out the shop of lotus items entirely and have to go back to farming other currencies for the last day or two.

Done with the lotus grind already here, or at least "I don't have to actively farm them anymore". There will be enough orbs from dailies for me to finish off all the lotus items without running Tathāgata any more.

So now I'm going back to Flaming Mountain and Tianzhu. I'm almost entirely done with peaches already, but still have a good ways left to go if I want to get all the skill gems from pork buns and pills. I could probably nab everything from the shop if I use some apples but I don't know how demanding the next event is? I want to be absolutely sure I get a fully maxed Rider Kintoki.

Anyways, it seems like it's getting harder to find supports with phase 1 CEs still equipped because understandably most people have moved to phase 2 and the Lotus/Orb CEs. I guess I'll have to work extra hard if I really want to clear out the whole shop lol

Assassins should almost always be using Stage 1 CEs because no one really wants to use Stheno in their friend slot for the lotus drops; not when the only real Rider threats are Astolfo (who is genderless) and wyverns (who are also genderless).

If anyone's still running the Hero characters, chances are they'll have a gacha CE if they have one available. Assuming they even bother to grind them; I've seen a few level 2 Li Shuwens trying to seem competent.

Cleared out everything from the shop now for all currencies except for pills, which I'm having rotten luck with. I think I may just leave behind the golden Berserker gems and the Dragon Scales/Hearts, because that's another 1400 pills I would need and I ain't got time for none of that business.

I guess I should start farming some XP now, because I'll need a lot of it for Kintoki and Astolfo is still not fully leveled either...

Edit: Maybe I've been hoarding too many apples. I already have enough exp to max Kintoki as soon as I get him, and I didn't even touch on the golden apples yet, just silvers...

Welp, first (and only) roll got me Fuuma Kotarou, the 5 star CE, and Necromancy. I was hoping for Ibaraki but I can't afford to spend more quartz on her, I gotta save up for other servants.

Also, this changes my plans somewhat, because I only accounted for enough exp to level up Kintoki, but I also want to level Kotarou now...

...Somehow I didn't realize the oni counts as Male.

Robin is also pretty powerful, especially if you group him with people who can amp his NP gain or just straight out give him more NP charge (plus, Golden Rule helps on both counts!). Blasting away with 300/500k Yew Bows twice in one Sabotage is pretty damn neat.

But yeah, Euryale is better in almost every way if you did her Rank Up and got Whim of the Goddess.

I'll probably have to settle for using someone else as I am lacking in both Archer Pieces and Monuments, so my Euryale can go no higher than 30 right now.

Actually, since the sub boss appears to be Tamamo, I'll probably just use Kintoki to beat her down quickly and then bring a Euryale support. That might work out, I think.
Title: Re: Fate/GUDAGUDA 3: Majin ChocOkita
Post by: Ionasal kkll Solciel on June 15, 2018, 04:21:17 am
Personally, I'd avoid nuking Tamamo unless she's about to force an NP out of the oni, you have an Assassin in the front for some reason, or the battle's almost done. Her damage output... well it isn't great compared to her Saber pal, the first time she uses her NP all it does is slight health recovery you'll tear through in your very next hit and make future NPs come out one turn sooner, and I don't think she bothers with using Curse.

And now that I've said that, I think I should swap out Ushi for an actual healer...

EDIT: ALSO, REMINDER: TRADE IN YOUR MATS FROM LAST EVENT. Any Orbs, Talismans, unused Pills and Lotuses all convert to QP.
Title: Re: Fate/GUDAGUDA 3: Majin ChocOkita
Post by: Rei Scarlette on June 15, 2018, 04:58:20 am
Yeah, that would probably be a smarter idea. I took down the Expert/3Million oni (well, got it down to 2k then ran out of time) but it probably would have gone more smoothly if Tamamo was "wasting" some of its attack turns by taking them for herself. I didn't see her use curse at all either, so I'll try leaving her alive next time and see how that goes.

Which, now that you mention it, frees up a slot for me to bring a healer too, since I won't be trying to nuke her so fast.

Edit: She just finally used curse one time, and... it missed. So really, even if she does decide to rarely use it, it doesn't even matter. The chances of her using it and then actually landing it are very low.

Seems we're making progress on blue oni a fair bit slower than green oni. I wonder if this one is slow, or if the previous one was just strangely quick?

In either case, I don't have a good archer to contribute, but I have the MLB Sumo now so I'll stick it on Assassin Emiya in preparation for the red Rider oni. Probably not the most optimal support but, maybe someone out in the wide world of F/GO might get some use out of him  :derp:

(edit: whoops double post, too late i guess)

Additional edit: I did some math and it seems if you can consistently get 3M damage from Expert, there are more than enough golden dumplings to clear the entirety of the damage shop on those alone. If you can get more than 4.5m damage out of Oni difficulty, even better. I guess it still pays to wait until the Summit before doing any kind of crazy grinding though, because it drops all 3 currencies which means you'd be killing 4 birds with one stone.

As for me... I need my level 80 Rider Kintoki right now though, so I'm at least going to grind out the ascension items while we're still on blue Oni who I can deal with reasonably well.

Edit 3: Aaaand done. Kintoki is 80 now, so I'm just gonna chill for a bit, take it easy and do the rest of the event casually.

I'm really feeling the effects of only having the coral CE to reliably farm with at the moment. It's way harder than it should be to farm the rest of the stuff.

I've been using a Google docs guide that someone posted on the wiki for the event and it seems like the Summit is the best place to farm the textiles, however there're better places for farming coral and baskets. You can farm a ton of coral in the Oni level at the Mountain Trail and the best place for baskets seems to be the Rakshasa level at the Hot Springs, though that won't show up until the Summit's been cleared.

Posting while I wait for my BP timer to hit 0.

Only two 10-rolls this banner. Raikou on the first, Ibaraki and two 4* CEs on the second. But I burned through every gold ember I had including a bunch of backup Saber embers from the Hunting Quest a few months ago and Raikou barely got over 60. Buying more embers from the shop finally got her to over 70. All the new servants in this event are really cool, but it'll be sad to have a lvl 1 Ibaraki and Fuuma (whenever I eventually get him) for the foreseeable future. #BlessedMasterProblems

It feels weird when it felt like the Green Oni raid was too hard (due to lack of dmg CEs) yet finished at a good pace. Meanwhile, the Blue Oni raid feels easy and consistent with your choice of Euryale or Orion yet the progress is a slog. I'm at 100m damage already, half of the damage points ladder and there are many others who have finished the damage ladder and we'll still probably finish the raid with only 6 hours to spare.

Raikou's animations are amazing. She looks and feels really bloody powerful even though the damage CEs play some role in that feeling. Still, no wonder she's a top tier character gameplay wise; her NP gain is really bloody good and she gets so many stars after an NP that she can psuedo chain 2 NPs within 4 turns. Pretty well designed kit, cards, and the stats and status of being the only 5* AOE Berserker so far. I honestly feel she's worth a few more SQ or tickets if you don't have her; she has lasting power for this game's lifetime. For the Blue Oni, I use Sumo Raikou in the front line to help nuke down Tamamo, then plugsuit in Sumo Euryale to finish the Oni off. For the Red Oni, it'll probably be Shuten and a friend DPS.

Also, mat drop rates in the various nodes are really good. It's pretty much why I may not want to farm embers during this event, high quality mats and drop chances in many of the future nodes.

I probably won't roll for her tbh, I did one 10 roll hoping for Ibaraki but it didn't happen and I didn't get Raikou either. She seems like a nice enough character but personally I'm not really a fan of her in terms of looks... I'm not anti-oppai or anything like that but I'll explain what bugs me in a spoilerbox, skip over it if you don't care lol.

Well firstly, I suppose her design is supposed to be fairly attractive, but I don't like the magical perfectly form-fitting boob holders. The rest of the body, yeah knock yourself out, do whatever kind of silly skin-tight shenanigans you want, but just think of how extremely impractical that part is. The outfit would have to be designed with literal boob-pockets for them to fit into. And even so they shouldn't be so well-defined, I know "lol, applying logic to videogames" but I always did have a strong dislike for that one particular kind of outfit design. I just don't like it personally.

Also, on her idle animation. It looks a bit awkward to me because it seems as if her boobs are expanding and contracting as she breathes, there should be motion there but it is a bit too exaggerated. There is too much movement in the boobulars and not enough in the chest, behind them. And if the boob-pockets are so perfectly form-fitting, how are they floating so freely and not compressed? Yeah, more logic, it's just a game, BUT I just can't take her seriously with all this considered. They look like actual, literal balloons attached to her chest area. Otherwise, the general colors are very nice but she doesn't have much else going for me that I like in terms of design, so overall I just feel a bit negative about her looks.


Anyways in terms of gameplay, she seems alright. I was a little disappointed when I tried a friend's Lv90 Raikou with MLB Sumo, and make no mistake it's not because she is bad at all, it is only that Reddit overhyped how good she would be and it did not match expectations. I haven't used her outside of Onigashima, but doing some very quick number crunching, she did 550k without a buster bean, with 3 hotspring CEs and 1 MLB sumo. So taking her innate +100% into account, that's +450% total, so if I had to make an assumption she would do ~100k AoE outside of Onigashima without Waver buffs because I have no Waver of my own.

That's actually fairly good all things considered. Personally I'm much more a fan of Lancelot if I want an AoE Berserker but she's definitely pretty strong. I would second the idea that you probably may want to roll for her as she seems to be a good strong servant. Just not doing it for me though.

Post by: Zerviscos on June 16, 2018, 10:55:17 am
All things considered, remember, any Buster servant is significantly boosted when Merlin arrives in your end. Even without him though, Raikou becomes an invaluable AOE monster in a lot of future challenge quests involving multi enemies. Probably around your 2nd(last challenge, but Zerkalot should be much more preferred)/3rd Nerofest and over. I can definitely say there were times where I was forced to switch out my usual Jalter + double Merlin to Support Raikou + Waver + Merlin for those quests. Waver should be a better all-around support for her though due to usual DEF up and selfDmgCutAdd mod.

Powerful, but of course not a must-have. If I'm forced to double Waver, I'll most likely use Zerkalot since I don't have my own Raikou, which is still a respectable placeholder AOE burst. Used it last Nerofest redux. Right now though, the NA content will have a more focus on single-enemy bosses up till Salomon(except some Nerofest challenge), and early break bars. It's one reason why Jalter had a long-lasting stand on top of the memelist.

Hentai clothing logic is strange, to say the least.

Also, Raikou is actually not dealing her best in damage right now. Mystic Slayer is only working at half strength against the oni. Most of her OPness comes from obliterating most of the better Servants thanks to anti-Earth/Sky. (Wait for raid 4; that's when Raikou will work at full force!)

Who are you guys bringing in for Buster day? I'm running Euryale/Support Waver/Shiki (Assassin) on the front line; the Gorgon still outpaces Shiki in damage despite typing, but Shiki's still good for instawiping Kiyo before she can start 'zerkercritting. Waver isn't expected to last very long because lol Rider oni, but it's still usually enough to get Euryale a second NP in the first cast of Whim of the Goddess.

I'm out of blue bean, so I'm using my MHX, Mash, support Waver with green bean. Just keep Waver alive long enough to cast his skills twice is good enough for me.

Post by: Rei Scarlette on June 17, 2018, 05:10:55 am
I'm probably going to use the same setup that I was using for blue oni, which is Hans - Kintoki Rider - Support Euryale. She'll lack the class advantage but in exchange her NP won't be nerfed by arts resistance, so overall she should deal about roughly the same damage as before - I stopped using beans because I ran out and didn't want to farm more.

As long as nothing unexpected happens, Kintoki still oughtta be able to knock down Kiyo on command with his NP, same as with Tamamo, so I can just deal with her whenever is most appropriate. I can see Hans dying very quickly so I may throw Assassin Emiya in there instead, I'm yet to see how much damage his NP deals to red oni with MLB Sumo but I suspect it should be at least decent. How much damage he deals will probably decide whether I give him sumo or just give him another hot springs to further support Euryale.

That said, I am going to chill for today, and try to pick up oni fights tomorrow. Against green oni I managed about 20-30 million or so (I don't think I had Kintoki ascended any yet, so probably less than 25) and then for blue oni I jumped up to over 140 million. I need a small break from this lol

Edit: That aside though, feeling a bit bummed about the fact I'm still not able to do 3BP effectively at all, despite having MLB and a full set of hot springs to choose from. I would need to deal 4.5 million or more for it to be worth the BP cost, but I even can't manage 3 million there. I can't dish out the damage quickly enough and I get beaten down too quickly because the enemies are stronger. I guess that is where lack of my own major damage dealer or Waver really hurts most.

Kintoki is officially my strongest servant now (and I guess he qualifies as my first and only major damage dealer) but the oni he has class advantage for is also quick resistant... Im uncertain if I could pull it off even with quick beans?

Edit2: I just barely managed a full 3BP run, between my friend's grailed Assassin Emiya and my own not-grailed one. It was a long, rough battle, and we both deal less damage with MLB Sumo and a bean than Shiki does with normal Sumo and no bean, but we effectively locked down the boss and prevented it from ever using an NP. I'm happy with how that went down even if it was far from optimal.

I love how crazy some of these solo things get. Someone took down 3BP Red Oni with solo Stheno. (https://www.reddit.com/r/grandorder/comments/8rvy8u/a_goddess_can_do_it_too_stheno_3bp_red_oni_solo/) The one time where her absurd NP gain is used to brutal effect.

And someone did it with Carmilla too; and Cursed Arm Hassan, somehow?! (https://youtu.be/NbEGX2NasbE)
Title: Re: Fate/GUDAGUDA 3: Majin ChocOkita
Post by: Rei Scarlette on June 18, 2018, 11:06:11 am
I'm still on the fence over whether that could be called a "true" solo or not, since she is benefitting from hot spring CEs which is kind of bending the rules (to me, solo implies no direct benefit from the characters you kill off) but no matter what you consider it, it is really impressive without a doubt. I definitely don't intend to take away from that feat at all, just thinking about it a bit.

Speaking of soloing or pseudo-soloing, I've come to realize that is it easier for me to pseudo-solo the 3BP red oni with Jack than it is for me to kill 2BP by normal means. Since Jack has infinite crits while she is alone (either QQQ or NPQQ both generate over 50 stars) it boosts her NP gain to absurd levels due to all the crits and she can actually NP every other turn. Two turns in a row when her quick boost is available.

So I can actually kill the red oni way more reliably while she is the only one alive, and do it faster than my usual 2BP runs too lol

Edit: Of course I discovered this strategy way too late as I already cleared the entire damage ladder. But now I can try to farm CEs or just skill gems I guess, so it's still good that I can do 3BP? I don't intend to stop fighting even though it appears these things are rigged to prevent failure, I still want to contribute.
Title: Re: Fate/GUDAGUDA 3: Majin ChocOkita
Post by: Rei Scarlette on June 18, 2018, 10:50:16 pm
Just a heads up, the final raid is now open. Aaaaand I'm not able to fully clear 3BP again. The two sub-boss crystals are both casters which means Jack solos are out of the question. Besides, the boss deals too much damage as a berserker anyways so I wouldn't be able to solo it even if the crystals were gone. It was worth a shot though trying the solo strategy again, just in case it did work. But alas you will need people to keep Jack alive, can't benefit from unlimited crit works.

Curiously, Jack did more damage to the red oni than to this boss. I'm not sure if the attack bonus versus females on her NP is actually counting.

Edit: I was able to do a lot better with a non-solo style Nobu (5 million compared to 2.4 million in my previous run) but I still can't quite finish her off. I imagine if I had Waver, or if I started playing early enough to have my own Nobu, it would be a cakewalk.

It is, it's just a quirk of how the bonus is applied. The anti-Riding effect of Nobu's NP is baked into the NP itself, whereas Jack's anti-female effect is applied as a buff. That buff is the same type of damage boost as the event CEs, so it's adding to those rather than multiplying like Nobu's NP would.

Also, keep in mind that Jackie's anti-female bonus applies for the entire turn, while Nobu's anti-riding applies only for the NP itself. That means that her NP functions best when she gets all the attacks and the Extra attack.

Pick my 6/6/10 with MLB Lvl 100 Sumo Tesla! With Waver or even with some rigging with other Servants, he can NP at the start of the Ushi Gozen turn and wipe out the crystals without needing to pop his 3rd skill Pioneer for 50% NP gauge boost. Then on Turn 2, pop his Galvanism and Pioneer and build up your NP to use within the next 2 turns. Repeat, keep him alive, use Plugsuit stun to properly time when she's about to NP, then swap in David from your backline and give everyone the 1 hit evade. Finish up.

I've tried about 2 runs with my 4/4/4 Nobu and 2 with Tesla and I think it's the Turn 2 consistency that makes me like Tesla more than Nobu. If you don't get the right cards on Turn 2, you will waste most of the stars generated from Nobu's NP and can't build her gauge up again. Tesla cheats with Pioneer, even if you have to delay a turn to pop it.

I'm using Red Bean Jalter with MLB Sumo, Santa alter with MLB Hot Spring, support Waver with MLB Hot Spring, and 3 backrow with 1 Hot Spring +2 currency drop. Already running out of Red Bean and abit lazy, might consider going to 1 BP with MLB Sumo on Santa alter and just farm bond points.

CE Bombs, my friend.

This is a trick to basically feed 1 star or 2 star Craft Essences with exp. This will make them be literal experience bombs if you use them to feed other CE.

CE Bombs, my friend.

This is a trick to basically feed 1 star or 2 star Craft Essences with exp. This will make them be literal experience bombs if you use them to feed other CE.

Yes, check out https://imgur.com/a/lYaqf for a visual representation. How I do it is pretty close to the image, as follows:

1) Take a 2 star CE and give it 18k exp. Keep in mind that feeding 1* gives 1k, 2* gives 3k, 3* gives 6k. So basic multiples work.
2) Repeat the above until you have 5 of these.

3) Take a new 1 star CE and limit break it once, to bring its max level to 20.
3a) Alternatively, just use a new 3 star CE which has a max level of 20 anyways.

4) Feed the five 2 star CEs you made into this lvl 20 CE.

You now have what I call lvl 18s. You will need approximately 18 of these.

5) You will now create a max level 50 CE by max limit breaking a 1 star CE.
6) You feed your lvl 18s into this max level 50 CE until it shows you will get to at least lvl 49 from this.

You now have your first CE Bomb.

You need 4 CE bombs to hit level 80 on a max limit broken 4* CE.
You need 8 CE bombs to hit level 100 on a max limit broken 5* CE.

***Remember to max limit break the Sumo CE first without using any bombs on it. Overflow of exp doesn't work so don't mix bombs with the process of max limit breaking.
***The primary reason to do things with CE bombs is that while the exp used from the cards is the same whether you use bombs or level your CEs the traditional way, the QP costs are different. QP costs get higher when the level of the CE increases and is charged per card used. Thus you manipulate the system by using as few cards as possible and when the CE is at the lowest level possible. Thus, 8 bombs on a mere lvl 15 Max Limit Broken Sumo saves a ridiculous amount of possible QP.

-----
Back to the Ushi Gozen raid, I see I wasn't using my Nobu like others have been. The people raving about Nobu's damage go for a Turn 1 uber damage Nobu NP Brave Chain and use Anniversary Blonde suit. I tried it with double Waver, all applicable buffs and had a NPAB chain and it did around 4.5m damage. However, I'm not liking that style too much because my damage was pretty weak after, especially cuz Turn 2 gave me 0 Nobu cards. Ushi Gozen got one turn away from NPing my entire unprotected frontline before I killed her. I guess I can see the appeal of the frontloaded Nobu strat, but I'm not thinking it's for me.
Title: Re: Fate/GUDAGUDA 3: Majin ChocOkita
Post by: Ionasal kkll Solciel on June 19, 2018, 10:03:44 am
I love how many strategies there are for nuking smother. She's Divine/Riding, so Nobu can stack her buffs to great effect, Ushi can walk in between the crystals to lay down Hassou Tobi whenever she damn well pleases, Carmilla and Jack both work well with their anti-Female NPs, Tesla and Edison are both anti-Mystery, so even they can lay down the law if you don't have anyone better... Hell, as people have mentioned, just bring in your best single-target nuker and they'll probably do it just fine with decent supports.

Headpat loli runs probably require bringing in Martha or Marie to get their NPs up to burst down the crystals first and foremost. What happens to them afterward isn't your problem.

The only problem with using AoEs against smother is that she's evidently a big fan of Imagine Dragons and likes to use them to get ready for her nuke NP.

As for me, I'm using Nobunobu strats; Nobu/Waver/Mash in the front, I don't care who's in the back much, but Medea Lily is in slot 4 for Nobu heals and Altera's in the last slot just in case. With Pheasant Beans, I'm actually not caring quite as much about my exact strategies, and the fact that there's two Pseudo-Servants and a Man attribute in the front line means that in the rare case she uses Mystic Slayer, it's a wasted action. As long as Mash gets off her invuln (or her NP at minimum) on Nobu so smother's NP doesn't wipe my attacker off the field, it's actually a pretty easy 6M (compared to impossible green; kind of iffy blue, and semi-reliable red). Only twice has it actually gotten to the point where Altera had to deal with cleanup.

Mystic Code-wise, I've actually been using the Mage Association Uniform. Free 20% NP once during the battle is actually pretty potent when you have Waver or Arts chains getting you close enough, and rolling the dice with the command card change occasionally nets me a good result.

If you're having trouble getting more damage off with Nobu, try giving your frontline NP Charge CEs, and burst her down with 300% Three Line Formation, since the multiplier off anti-Riding increases with OC. Or pair her with a star generator so her second and third skills combine into a devastating crtizkrieg via a Brave Chain.



We cut it pretty close on red oni - about 44 minutes left. We have the advantage of two more hours this time thanks to this raid ending on the daily rollover instead of based on the time we killed the last oni, and we've already cleaved a pretty big hole in smother's mountains. The closing of the Arash loophole (get to solo Arash, Stella the first wave away to instantly end the battle and somehow get the oni's and supporter's drops too) might make some of the exploiters actually start to burst down the crystals now the normal way, so we get more damage off on smother.

Regarding damage fixing, I'm reasonably certain there's some minor massaging, but I feel like a lot of people forget that the NA server is cast over a humongous net - unlike JP, where pretty much all the action happens in one time zone; by the time I get to sleep at midnight, the East Coast is already starting to wake up and go do business. If the massive bursts happen late PM East Coast time, all that really means is that the entire country is actually smashing oni face in all at once because most of us are off work and actually have time to do the smashing.

Ah I see, now I understand. I didn't realize the difference in how Jack's anti-female bonus applies compared to, say, Nobu again for example. That is interesting. So it works the same way as Rider Kintoki's quick bonus on his NP, which is also a one-turn buff rather than just a single boost baked into the NP. Very good to know.

I tried using your Tesla, Kiro, and for the first time I was able to wipe out the full 6 million damage, so thanks for the suggestion! I had to modify the strategy a little bit as I have no Waver and not many support servants in general, but I managed somehow in the end. Even though I got really unlucky with pulling Tesla cards and the final NP came right at the last moment, it still worked out nicely.

Currently, 3BP (all currencies), Cave (all currencies), Mountain Trail (Coral), Forest (Brocades), and Hot Springs (Wicker Baskets).

Once Ushi gets nuked, 3BP Ushi (all currencies), Summit (all currencies), Mountain Trail (Coral), Tower (Brocades), and Hot Springs (Wicker Baskets).

Something also worth noting, according to previous drop rate data from the JP version, is that even after Rakshasa difficulty is unlocked Oni should still be slightly more efficient for Corals at the Mountain Trail. (an average of 31 in 14 stacks, compared to 30 in 12 stacks) It doesn't make a HUGE difference, but it could add up over time and more stacks means more benefit from CEs, not to mention it may be easier to clear.

The other currencies all appear to be best at Rakshasa difficulty, so it's just an odd detail that really only applies to Corals at the Mountain Trail.

Ushi Gozen is down and now I can finally NP5 and grail Kintoki, just what I've been waiting for this whole time. Just to level 90 for now, I have to consider very carefully who I am going to use the rest of my grails on, but Kintoki is my first and he deserves it.

So that's a strong single-target damage dealer, finally, now if only I could be lucky enough to pull Waver or someone for a good support servant lol but I guess Hans will do in the meantime.

Edit: my boi Kintoki can clear 3BP as the main damage dealer now, it almost brings a tear to my eye knowing I've finally got a servant properly raised to a level of significant strength. Almost. It'll take a little more than that to make me get all emotional though  :derp:

Rather than farm for the rest of the Fous or mats, I might farm baskets for cubes.  At least that price seems sane.

In the NA meta, literally the only thing not going for Ridertoki is sustain. He needs someone to keep him alive, but as long as you're propping him up with some sort of healing or tanking, he can spam his NP basically every single turn because his NP gain is absurd just on Quick crits, and NPQQ can basically get him close to 50 stars and almost certainly 100% NP, easy.

I didn't know it, but it seems Golden Sumo can drop randomly from Rakshasa level quests. At least, it wasn't listed in the guides I've been using anyways.
I wonder if that means the Hot Spring CE can also drop from quests, or only the raids? Not that it matters very much by this point, I guess, lol

(https://my.mixtape.moe/adcoew.png)

It came from Blavatsky specifically, I saw her drop two red chests. One was the monument and the other the CE.

Man, we're just frickin' murdering the revived onis. Like, just a day and then bam, gone.
They've cut the oni's health for the revival. Red only had 4T health, compared to 5T originally. Given how many of us hit the rewards cap by the time Ushi went down the first time, the devs may have reduced it to a level NA can actually manage to smash and grab swiftly, so that the bunch of people who went "got Kintoki/all the Lores/all the Prisms, I give zero fucks about anything else in this event," can go do other stuff (like decompress after three events in a row) while we continue to grab tickets.

Also, most of us have MLB Sumos; basically all of us didn't have it against Green, and only some of us against Blue. Combined with the MLB Hot Springs, it's much, much easier to get the 6M down on them than initially.

In other news, NA's getting the Extra Class slot! Now we can have JAlter and Mash on the support list at the same time!

Spoilerboxing just in case some of us still don't know how Gawain's silliness works, but I noticed something that seemed odd in my runs and was wondering if anybody else encountered it.

Did anyone else have Gawain somehow get into a cycle of "1 > 3 > full > NP > 1 > 3 > full > NP" instead of the usual "2 > full > NP > 2 > full > NP"? I couldn't tell what triggered it, maybe stunning his NP turn, but I got it to happen in both fights and he was otherwise charging normally up until those points, and from those moments forwards he started taking an extra turn to use his NP every time because of it. Which was kind of a big deal, and helped a lot while trying to kill him without Euryale shenanigans.

Is that normal/an intended mechanic or is he just borked  :derp:

I believe it's because he's technically charging only one tick off of Nightless, with the other being his natural regeneration tick. The regen tick doesn't proc after his Extra Attack/Excalibur Galantine because the charge drain to zero happens after the regen tick, but then Nightless' tick procs and he gets one for next wave.

Ah, I see. That would explain why it seems to work fine initially, and then for some reason looks off afterwards. So it's not borked at all, just strange. Interesting...

I'm progressing steadily enough, more than once I've been almost tempted to use apples because I'm really enjoying the difficulty and the story, but I want to hold on to my apples for upcoming events. Camelot isn't going anywhere after all.

Ed: Used a summon ticket, saw gold sparks, saw Rider card, thought I got real lucky and pulled Ozymandias... Nope it was Martha, adding on to my already long list of gold Riders.

It seems that Riders love me, and on the other hand, Archers dislike me as I have yet to get even a single gold Archer.

Yep, too late here. I started playing about... halfway through the Fate/Accel Zero Order event. I don't know how I managed to pull it off but I at least got Iri and all of her ascension materials from it.

I'm a bit sad that I have no Nobu as she's one of my favorite servants, but I guess I'll be able to pick her up whenever there's an eventual rerun. I should've started playing much sooner, but I didn't really get into these kind of games until more recently, so I've been missing out.

Don't worry, should be at least one rerun of GUDAGUDA Honnoji sometime next year. Plus there's still the Prisma Illya collab with Kuro as a welfare coming out after summer too.

On another note, got Saberlot and Nitocris off tickets. Today was not such a bad day.

Goodbye Pot, Hello Fire.  Any advice on Mordred pt. 2, other than bringing in a friend Gil?
For that fight in particular, my party consisted (almost) solely of people to either extend the lifespan of my support Archer or to cut down on the boss's NP by either stuns or drains. I chose to take Euryale for support, even though the boss is not male for a damage bonus or charms, she can still drain the NP charge which keeps everyone alive longer.

In the first round, the boss won't use NP, only extra attacks, so you can save party-wide evade/invuls until round two where the actual wide-range NPs come in. My full setup was Kintoki Rider, Mash, and support archer in the front line, with David, Kotarou, and Vlad in the back. With Kotarou being the final evasion giver in my party, I set him up with the Nightingale CE from Go West so that after he dies, Euryale and Vlad will survive a little better from the defense boost.

Kintoki was just there to help burst down round 1 as quickly as possible after Euryale's NP was charged (saving hers for round two) because he's currently my strongest, but he very well could have been another stun user. In round two, each other member in order takes their turns either making Euryale invincible or delaying the boss NP in the case of Vlad's Vampirism.

In the end Euryale still had to eat an NP because of poor card selection not letting me charge a second NP quickly enough, but she should be able to survive one round easily enough.

For Mordred, I ran three charge drain servants.  By the time she finally got an NP off she was basically KO'd.

Edit: Two other things to report.

1) My Arts team (Vlad/Tamamo/Waver) is still in progress, but when I get Tamamo's skills leveled, it'll be crazy.  I'm used to playing 100% offense-oriented teams, so playing with something that has excellent sustain via the various defense buffs, charge drains, and skill/NP batteries while also having fantastic ST damage from Vlad's NP is a ton of fun.

2) After a year of playing I finally spent one Grail.  Holy shit, these cost a lot to use.  Wish there was a better way of farming money than the dailies...

Well, I've finally hit a roadblock, I just can't deal with this huge ghost in Act 11. I don't have enough offensive power to burst it down, and I can't outlast it with my defensive arts team either. Unlimited party-wide triple-buffed crits are kinda hard to deal with, I guess.

Who did you guys take along to deal with that thing? I guess in the meantime I'll work on some exp since I'm at a loss for how to pass this one.

Edit: A friend suggested that this ghost has a pretty high instant-death rate, but I failed to do that as well, even throwing out a full set of IK NPs with it under Shiki's death debuff. In the end I just gave up and used 3 command spells to pass it.

Dealing with fuck you ghost...  Well, Mash and David are both good defensive options; Waver gets type advantage along with partywide buffs; Medea Lily and Irisviel can keep people alive but have a bit of trouble staying alive themselves; Medea can just keep slamming RULE BREAKERS all day long...

The emergency option is to pull out a Berserker with a powerful NP, like Vlad or Lu Bu; bring along a K-scope or i Element and try to bust a hole in its health before survival becomes an issue.

I had enough sheer power behind my Casters and Shiki that I just ran a 5-Caster formation and broke it on my knee with Rule Breaker and Depth Perception.

And on NA, Camelot being written by Nasu himself definitely shows. We're closing in on the conclusion of Part 1, with only 1 more singularity after this. Feels like barely any time has passed since NA first started, and it's already the first anniversary. Time really flies.

You have one more match with him during your assault on the Holy City. Don't give up; you've actually weathered the worst he's got! (The rematch is a simple duel, no Archer Enforcement Knights.)

Really, the only two terrible things about sir hax bow is that he's vulnerable to enemies he's offensively strong against, and that he likes to use his NP charge to get to max, then his cleanse, then his NP so you have to judge whether he's going to try a preemptive shot with Failnaught. I personally run d'Eon (though George also works) to bait him even if he Boosts and tries for the NP.


Anyway, irony for me: Mordred got the killing blow on the last boss both times with Clarent Blood Arthur.

also I kind of wish someone made an Eiyuu Senki crossover fanfic, just for Gawain's reaction to Ywain being a foulmouthed loli on a lion

Waiting in line for Shadowverse at AX, but I will probably wait in line for FGO panel at 3:00 PM. All the merchandise at the Aniplex booth was pretty much sold out when I got there at 11:30. I think it probably sold out on Friday, the presence here is pretty high.

Lots of good stuff, mainly keychains in the Artists Alley. Bought quite a few different FGO things. Hyped for the panel and the chance to roll the Cavalry banner.

This FGO line is stupidly long. It's currently 7 widths with each length maybe 100 yards or so. And the panel only starts in 90 minutes. At least there is shade, but it's a solid 90+ degrees here.

Rolled Vlad on the Cavalry banner. I avoided the 1/10 chance of a dupe so I am grateful for that, sorry to hear about your roll Edible. On that topic, the salt in the Reddit threads is piled sky high. It's a bit telling when the prevailing mood of all the players when looking at the paid 5* roll is "I hope I don't get a dupe." Having that override the "yay, I will get a 5* Servant" is pretty sad. I know it would have stung if I rolled into NP3 Waver.

I don't know how loud it came out in the stream, but the audience mood was definitely a little forced. Not seeing anything new and then the 10 SQ announcement was definitely some forced applause. And the cardboard cake was pretty awkward too. The guest reactions to that were really adorable at the beginning, but the eventual realization that the cake wasn't...  :V Edible  :V... made that really awkward. I mean, who gets to keep it? Probably Shiokawa to take back to DelightWorks I guess. Come on, at least if you're going to give a gift, give one to each individual guest. Fuck, how embarrassing.

So many Super and Great Successes! My first 4 enhances were all Super Successes which allowed me to get Raikou to 90 and Ridertoki to first ascension. I will probably use a few apples and get everyone else I want leveled up. Then roll once during DaVinci+London day and once during DaVinci+America day and see if I get anyone new. The Participation of the King CE is also pretty good too, 50% NP and 10% Buster up without even needing to limit break it. And good Gil art, definitely worth some rolls/tickets.

If we look at the past JP schedule, their Anniversary was 7 days long, followed by a 4 day period of nothing, then Summer Event part 1. For us, we get the Anniversary for 11 days. Henceforth, we will probably get Summer Event from July 17th to July 31st. Which is potentially devastating because we may not be able to get the 5 tickets from August 1st to use for the end of the Archuria/Martha/Marie banner.

Edit: So I'm reading that the cake was real, but one of those display cakes that have a pretty rigid exterior. That makes much more sense of course. However, the inability to just cut it and have the guests take a few bites as well as Albert not clarifying that it was indeed an edible cake have led to all this confusion. That's some poor preparation.

I switched from farming embers today to farming the Berserker training grounds. Because I had 0 Berserker blue gems and I realized Ibaraki (4* servant) requires 42 total and Vlad (5* servant) requires 51 total. With the AP efficiency now, there really isn't a better time to restock on your blue gems until the Christmas lottery this December.

I spent a bit of time in the 2nd Berserker level (currently 10 AP) as it offered better rates on the Octuplet Crystals and can still drop blue gems. However, I ended up getting way more red gems than blue (not that it's a bad thing) and ended up switching to the 1st Berserker level (currently 5 AP). Definitely do 5 AP for blue gems and 10 AP for red gems. Used up 2 Golden and a Silver Apple to get all that done and it took over 2 hours and 75% of my phone's battery. Now THAT was tedious and felt like the Moon Festival grind from way back when.

But wait, there's more!  :ohdear: I suggest that if you are hoping to roll for Ruler Martha, that you factor in her needs. Her skills require every class gem of every color. Specifically, she needs a total of 12 gems of each class and color. So plan ahead as every class training ground will get one more rotation at half AP. Don't forget to factor in servants that get their strengthenings to unlock their 3rd skills as well.

2* Servants require 9 gems per skill, or 27 total.
3* Servants require 12 gems per skill, or 36 total.
4* Servants require 14 gems per skill, or 42 total.
5* Servants require 17 gems per skill, or 51 total.

5* Servants require 17 gems per skill, or 51 total.
Only the gold gems are a problem, still not going to use any apples though, need them for Nero Fes to stock up on Medals. :ohdear:

Speaking of mat farming, I finally got a chance to get a card to buy into the 5* gacha. Sanzang is now part of my Chaldea, which is kind of a shame, because I was hoping for Jack or Medb (anyone not named Vlad would have been fine, though, since he was my only 5* Cav and no one wants NP2 on the guaranteed *stares at Altera*); because now she and Da Vinci have to compete for Caster mats; and I was actually going to whale a bit for Illya, which might not happen now that I have a tank like Sanzang.

I almost forgot it was zerker day - I needed tons of gold trophies and blue gems for Kiyohime, so I'm glad I happened to read this before going to sleep. I had a bunch of lucky runs with 2 or even 3 gold trophies dropping at once and that made it a lot less painful. Pretty fair luck on the octuplet crystals too, I just need one more so that I can 10/10/10 Mash, before she was stuck at 4/4/10 because I just could not get a single one to drop  :ohdear:

I've managed to bring 3 to max level (Iskandar, d'Eon, Helena) and 1 is almost there (Shuten).  Used a couple of apples for mat farming (class pieces specifically). 
I've been otherwise focused on XP farming, shifting over to mat farming if I need something for ascension.

I'm glad we finally got a break in the recent rush of events. I'd been trying to level up a number of servants, but hadn't really been able to because I was more focused on event stuff and event-specific servants. Glad we have more time (and AP) for the dailies now.

Holy shit, Riders really do love my Chaldea for some reason after all, I keep saying that and it keeps happening. I just used two summon tickets and rolled Drake on the second one. I'm trying to save 10 tickets and 30 quartz (a set of 10 for both Mordreds in the upcoming banners) so I was only going to allow myself 3 tickets, but I only expected like, MAYBE a 3 star at most out of that...

I'm going to be very very sad if I don't manage to get Mordred at all, but I'm super hyped right now after that.

still not a single gold archer tho, I should have taken mamamiya instead of d'eon

-----

Edit: No Mordred after all - I gave in and used both my tickets and my quartz attempting to get regular Mordred because I want her more than the summer version - but I did get surprised by a random Arjuna on a ticket when I thought it was Tesla, and Lancer Alter came from the 10-roll.

I can finally fill each of my support slots with gold servants, all my previous regrets over not getting Mordred are gone. But still, would be nice if Best Knight would come home

Meanwhile, no income means no guaranteed SSR over here yet, but just yesterday, after one grueling year I finally got my own OG Nero on the Septem banner. Sure, my gold servant roster's pretty lopsided on the Saber front now but hey, it's the principle of the matter. And besides, I like swords.

So now I have Nero and Angry Mango on my team. Even got Nero up to NP2 from a 10-roll on the event gacha (the one with the Nitocris and Da Vinci one?)

I’m kinda taking a break from this game for now, though, so they probably won’t see too much action yet.

Pretty much crap on my gacha rolls save for a NP2 Astolfo and a brand new SAlter.  (And YAY! a decent offensive Saber.)  Plus I landed a Lancer Altria on my 5* roll.

However, my XP farming has churned out 6 max level servants; Shishou, Iskandar, Shuten, d'Eon, Helena, and Emiya-Assassin.  It could have been more if I didn't run out of Ascension mats, and grinding for monuments and pieces has turned out to have been a massive pain in the backside.

Still sane, it's not bad at all if I'm distracting myself in other ways. I only started X-A up yesterday to level my 2* bonds up. I'm just about done within 15 minutes. In the meanwhile, 2 people I sent friend requests to accepted today. They are not super whales, but they do have the Bond CE, MLB Mona Lisa and MLB Kaleidoscope as well as Ozymandias or Raikou.

I've actually spent most of this 1/2 AP period farming Chains. Even though I don't have any of the new Gold servants that require chains; the instant I get one, those chains will disappear. I will probably switch that up with occasional Medals; currently have 11 medals and maybe would like more as a cushion if I actually got both Squirtoria and Rider Mordred.

And as I was typing this all up, I'm done getting to bond 5 with every servant I've got. So I'm done with X-A.

Wasn't sure how much quartz I was going to spend going into the first day of gacha. First 10-roll got spooked by D'eon which is a .9/3 chance or 30% chance of being spooked. Second roll, first card nets me gold Lancer card and it ends up being Tamamo! So, feeling giddy with excitement, the rest of the rolls play out to 2 of the 4* CE and the last card being Pirates Party. I decide to throw in a celebratory 3rd 10-roll and I think it was the bare minimum except it was 2 4* CEs that weren't Twilight Memory. Oh well, I am pretty stoked. So 90 SQ netted me the rate up 5* Servant, NP2 D'eon, and 1 Pirates Party, 2 Twilight Memory, and 1 of the Boudica CEs.

I am pretty content and will save quartz for the Part 2 banner. Doing gacha rolls while lying in bed continues to be a better than average luck modifier. Also, I got an immediate Great Success on Tama Lancer with Lancer embers which shot her up from 3 (since I max Fou'ed her first) to 48 in one go. She's currently lvl 63 as I think I will go for the event shop embers to get her to 70 and her 3rd skill.

I hope everyone else's rolls end up decent. Grats Reiko, Summer Anne is probably the 4* I wanted most in Part 1 and because she has Guts, it makes her NP more likely to hit the obscene damage numbers worthy of the Anne/Mary duo. In my opinion, she is the most fun of the 4* Summer Servants to play with.

It's raining quartz in JP as the 50-day rewards gets upsized to 30 quartz, effective retroactively. I've logged in since about a month after launch, so I got 200 quartz from that, together with 40 quartz stream reward and 60 quartz for Riyodako rule-breakered retweet reward.

Guaranteed SSR roll discounted to 15 paid quartz, including limiteds, divided by class.

Skadi is here for the guaranteed gacha.

The usual half-AP daily quests and Super-success rate up are here.

It's raining quartz in JP as the 50-day rewards gets upsized to 30 quartz, effective retroactively. I've logged in since about a month after launch, so I got 200 quartz from that, together with 40 quartz stream reward and 60 quartz for Riyodako rule-breakered retweet reward.

Guaranteed SSR roll discounted to 15 paid quartz, including limiteds, divided by class.

Skadi is here for the guaranteed gacha.

The usual half-AP daily quests and Super-success rate up are here.

Mana prism shop restocked.
I know the Fuyuki chapter got animated, but did any of the other chapters get animated too?

So, seems like something's screwy with this week's master missions. I did today's bonus quest that gives 140 food, and it did count for 140 general event item drops for that one mission, but it did not count towards collecting 50 food. Actually, it counted for the 50 stone mission, despite not giving any stones at all.

Just something to keep in mind that the individual mission requirements may not necessarily match the descriptions. But in the end, you probably still need 50 of each anyways.

Edit: lol I only just realized, the mission also says "obtain 150 of (any drop in general)" but the actual requirements say 140/200 right now. So even that one has different requirements than the description that was written for it.

Nope, no other chapters. Not very good for continuity, but Camelot and Babylonia definitely have the strongest stories of the lot.

Hoo boy, the hype is real. I should probably watch the Fuyuki chapter animation.

Anyway, did a few one-draws with summoning tickets today because why not. I got my first Stheno, so it wasn't a total bust.

The OVA is worth it because of Caster Cu. He’s amazing. The improved characterizations of Olga and Romani are good, too.

Sounds good. I think the reason I didn't watch it before was because reviews were a bit iffy, but after actually playing the game I'll probably get more out of it now.

So the guide I've been following doesn't really touch on this, if you're planning to clear out the whole shop, is it more efficient to keep doing the Mountain quest for Wood/Stone/Iron, or should you focus on one at a time and do their individual quests?

I'm probably not going to bother buying everything (namely the silver and gold trophies I don't care about) but I do want to pick up as many of the other materials as I can. And going back for each of the different project options would be nice, but that's just going to take even more AP, I doubt I can do all that without eating through some of my golden apple stock.

It's probably best to go for the Mountain if you're not looking for any specific materials since it's technically more AP efficient. That said though, I'm perfectly happy with going through my own stock of golden apples since I'm being more selective with what I'm going for in the shop.

Usually one at a time is better unless you don't have enough CE or can't clear them all the time.

Finally finished going through every single branch for all of the building projects, earlier today. There are still some materials left in the shop that I would like to pick up, but I'm just glad that I at least got that much done.

Stone is definitely my weakest currency to farm, since I have no CEs for it and I have no high level units with a bonus for it either. So I have to sacrifice a +1 bonus and bring Vlad along to deal with the mosquitoes and crabs while support wrecks the Bicorn.

And I still need so much more stone to pick up knight medals  :ohdear:

Tonight is finally the dual pickup for Tamamo and Kiyohime. I hope ten tickets and two 10-pulls will be enough to get at least one of them. ;>; I have terrible luck when it comes to getting limited servants.

EDIT: ...

The game decided I wanted more craft essences. I got three five stars in my last ten roll.

I guess I'll just continue without any limited servants.

Total of 40 rolls across parts 1 and 2, zero gold servants. Highlight is my last 10-roll on part 2 that gave me 4xMeat Wars. Come on, you couldn't even have the decency to give me a 5th to MLB?

Post by: Rei Scarlette on August 06, 2018, 03:50:39 pm
I threw a 10 roll at it, seeing as I just hit my 100 logins reward, I didn't get a summer servant but I got a couple of the CEs at least. I tried a few tickets afterwards though and I got summer Marie from one of them.

Marie (along with Cat) was actually my first gold servant from the tutorial roll, so this feels just a tiny bit nostalgic. I don't really know how good Caster Marie is because I haven't looked at her skills or stats, but I think I'm going to level her. I need some more Casters anyways, what I've got right now is just Hans and Edison :derp:

Post by: Kiro on August 07, 2018, 01:41:47 am
So, crap roll, roll with Martha and crap, crap roll, roll with Martha and crap, crap roll. Since I ended up with 5 3* CEs, and 4 4* CEs, I threw around 5 more tickets to try to get the 5th copy of Meat Wars and didn't get it, but got NP3 Martha. Overall, satisfying and yet unsatisfying as there is no Marie, Squirtoria or Knight's Marines CE (I ended up with 1 Volumen). The greed of man knows no bounds and the grass is always greener on the other island in the ocean.

Furthermore, temptation must be continuously resisted. With 150 quartz left of what I had spent for, I want to try to make it last until New Years. That's a hard hunkering down of like 1 10-roll for each of the next events right up until the Merlin gauntlet. At least all I "really" want from now till then is the Miyu CE, a shot at NP2 Nero Bride, and Quetz. But so greedy... so wanting...

I was initially planning to grail Martha to 90, but I'm a little unsure so I will test her out a bunch with lvl 80 stats and guesstimate how much of a boost it will give her. Looking through various numbers, offensive 4* get the most boost from grails. While most of the time, you would use class advantage, the fact that there are a lot of mixed nodes in the game, it'd be a nice option to just throw a lvl 90 version of her into a party without a care, kind of like Heracles in current content. Still, offense is kind of the name of the game, even when the content gets harder later and Martha has no hard survival skill (although a 3000 heal every 5 turns with Ruler defense is kinda sick).
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order: 3rd Anniversary
Post by: ditt93 on August 07, 2018, 04:34:06 am
60 SQs and 27 tickets in part 1, no gold servant. :ohdear:

She got so excited about her Summer debut that she went to the wrong server.

Summer 2018 will happen in about eight hours. The confirmed Servants are welfare Jeanne D'Arc Alter (Berserker), Jeanne D'Arc (Archer), Ushiwakamaru (Assassin) and Ibaraki Douji (Lancer). The not officially confirmed but gonna be in it Servants are Medb, MHX and either Parvati or BB. Gilgamesh (Caster), Robin Hood and Dantes are going to be support Servants along with previous Summer Servants, and they will get new costumes.

Ibaraki though, I was quite happy for that, but still I really would also like SUshi.

So... I bought a JP Quartz account right after the 3rd Anniversary stream because all the goodies being given away were just too good to ignore. Rolling with over 800 quartz and 50 tickets for just $9 is satisfying as fuck. Decent luck with servants and I managed to get 1 of each Summer Servant so far and 400 quartz left for Part 2. I'm treating the JP account as more casual, but I have obviously fooled myself because mass grinding 1/2 AP Dailies and then Summer #3 is anything but casual.

But I'm happy to report that I beat the Grand Battle with no CS used. Battle spoilers:

This battle is way too hard for new accounts never mind newbies who want a permanent Jalter welfare. I tested the waters, failing the mission twice to see the gimmicks and then ran a battle plan that amazingly worked out first try with some good luck.

Party Composition, First break bar down, Second break bar down, Victory



Necromancy procced twice for Jalter which was amazing where she helped eat hits along with her dodge. She has been one of my crutches this Summer even if she dies a lot. BUT... if I had her Dodge maxed to lvl 10 and she has lvl 80 HP stats (or even lvl 90, I will probably grail her), she would be even more amazing. Consider that I'm farming with Summer servants and not using Waver or more dedicated supports and 1/1/1 NP 1, I probably haven't even hit 40% of her potential. IMO, she is within Kintoki Rider's tier for sure and she will solidly help me work through the Story Singularities as I continue with them.

Thank you Ruler Martha support. She is perfect for this fight.


Random thoughts:

David is so amazing for his Harp. The best newbie skill in the game on a 3* deserves so much praise.

Saber Lancelot is so baller. With a 50% NP CE and 30% NP Charge as his first skill, he's so close to NP on Turn 1 and can still do good card damage in general. I hope to get him on NA soon.

King Hassan and Musashi are as amazing to use as their repuation precedes them. And I'm not even utilitizng them with Merlin, guess that's the power of Buster Gorillas. I was not as impressed with Hijikata as I would have hoped, but it's hard to say I'm using him well without proper support. MHXA has the best animations and Hokusai has the cutest voices and expressions. Jeanne Archer is so ridiculous gameplay wise, but her costumes and expressions are top tier.

Raikou Lancer is so busted. Holy shit.

Finally, the JP friends I've got have far fewer maxed skills than I expected. I don't really have any super whale friends and it's possible that most of them are not Day 1 players. But the thought occured to me that when NA gets to this content in 2 years, by comparison, NA players will be far stronger on average. Being able to see the future and properly allocate their resources along with getting certain QoL features quicker will do that to a playerbase.

(complaining following, don't read if you don't want to see Sect branded kvetching) Also BB is my absolute least favorite Sakuraface, and in competition for my most hated Fate character. Sieg is in the lead of that competition.

Seems like they've broken Nox again, after a few months of it running just fine without any outside help, so as I have not replaced my broken phone yet I may be unable to participate in the event.  :colonveeplusalpha:

If I end up missing the event completely that's probably going to kill my motivation to keep playing tbh...  :( If anyone by chance has any idea of an alternate solution for the time being, it'd be super appreciated.

In the end I was able to borrow a phone from a relative, so thankfully I won't have to miss the event. Still a bit troubling that they are keeping up with this no emulators thing, but I can live with it for now.

No Illya (yet? still hoping) but so far I'm really enjoying this one. Nice music, and it feels somewhat relaxed compared to the previous event. I might be able to clear the shop fully this time? Not sure on that yet.

What a strange workaround, but it actually works perfectly. I can't imagine why, but I'll chalk it up to some kind of witchcraft.

Anywho, still no Illya, so my hopes of bringing the whole family together are slowly dropping! But I got one copy of each CE from the gacha, so I am satisfied with that, anything more is just a nice bonus on top.

Rather than fighting the last boss head on, I'm opting for just forcing 50 crit stars and feeding them to two LAlters for a quick cheesy one turn win.  :derp: Trying to play around with someone who spams evades and NP charges is just silly

Edit: (small note down here, so as not to be too distracting) However, I should note that some time between the time I read that last night, and just now, the above Reddit post was removed by moderators, which has unfortunate implications.

IMO anyways, I think you should probably MLB them both, unless you really need multiple copies for your preferred party setup. It's a pretty noticeable jump in damage if you MLB it, and you'll typically do better for this event with one main damage role plus supports, instead of spreading out too much.

Burnt my paltry quartz reserves on impulse and ended up reuniting the Einzbern sisters against all odds. Now, when can I get Kerry so the whole family's here? Might be a bit hard if it's only on paid banners, since buying quartz over here's gonna require quite a bit of finagling if it's even possible at all, not to mention the fact that I still don't have an income yet. ;_;

That's probably not many apples. The hardest part is 15 Fake Servants (Male); guaranteed that's 450 AP, even if you manage to set it up so that you get your 5 Scholarly Servants and 5 Giant enemies within that set. The raids themselves are only 60 AP total (80 for the final boss) if you wipe them every encounter.

The entire first half could be done just on natural regen.


As an aside, I'm so happy two of the Gentlemen are weak to Saber. Altera gets her chance to shine and crit the raid bosses for half their health in a single Buster card!

Welp, I got all of the musashis and lions I needed to buy the items I care about through natural progression, but at the end I still need an absolute load of puddings, more than 2000 of them. I only ended up with a single pudding CE despite having two Musashis CEs and one Miyu CE. This is going to be a long grind, to pick up the rest of the Fous and Seeds...

Wow, that was fast. How many apples did it take?

Different person, but I just finished up tonight as well. Only used 3 golden apples here, as well as the silvers rewarded from missions, so I think it was overall a net gain in appleage from this event. At least, it feels like I came out of it with one or two more than I started with anyways.

Reminder re: EMIYA (Assassin): Assassin day this week is your next best chance to pick Kerry up. With only three SR Assassins including him, there's a pretty good chance if you can get the SR roll in the first place, and the next rate up with him is the next Class-based gacha in about six months. That said, the other two are Stheno and Carmilla, two gals who love to spook you.

Also a very good chance to pick up Jack if you desire crits for days, because she only shares the SSR tier with Jeanne; and the next time this gacha rolls around, there'll be Gorgon and Lobo also clogging up the SSR zone.

First 10-roll gets me the 5* CE, 3* CE and Anne&Mary. At least it's my first Anne&Mary, but only 50% rate up on 4* Servants will be the death of all of us. Some impulse single rolls netted me a Kaleidoscope which never stops being exciting.

It's nice the Joint Recitals only cost 100 medals. Got them all super quick and can more or less set the grind parties in place. Will only need slight tweaks when the nodes change every 4 or so days. I'm not quite remembering how the start of the previous lotto events went, but this one is pretty hassle free which is super appreciated as we get ready to grind hardcore. The challenge quest tickets will hopefully sate my impulse rolling for the rest of the event.

10 AP for bronze, 20 AP for silver, and 40 AP heroic for gold.

Advanced drops all 3 types of currencies, but you're most likely not going to get as much bronze from it as you would from doing three 10 AP runs. Especially if you have CEs to boost bronze drops, then 10 AP is even better, but it's a bit boring and mindless because of how easy it is

Trying to do the new quest with a full petal bonus takes me 12+ turns, anyways. (only 8 previously) Maybe I should sacrifice some levels of the petal bonus just for the sake of keeping my sanity.

Did surprisingly well in the Hassan battle up until the final Cursed Arm showed up. Iri, Waver, and Medea worked fairly well.

That said, the Siegfried fight is hella easy with two Wavers and an EMIYA archer. Just gotta build up the NP gauges through the first two phases, then buff EMIYA and nuke after both Waver NPs.

I love how absurd Sigfried's damage mitigation is. I did a test run with Euryale; 100k on the wyvern adds with no additional buffs. 300 on Siggy with all the buffs I had. Literally just 300. EDIT: I just realized that that was literally just Core of the Goddess. So he just flat-out nulled it. 90% mitigation and 3x defense is no joke.

So I MLB'd the bronze CE now that I'm done with bronze medals and I put it on my Vlad, but as far as I can tell, people who are seeing my supports only see it as a non-MLB version  :V At least this is what 3 of my friends have told me over discord. Also, the skill levels on my Hans apparently never increased from 2/8/1 for them either, even though I did that last night as well and his third skill should be at least 7 or so.

No idea what's up with that, I don't even still have a non-MLB bronze CE anymore. I only ever got the 5 copies.


Edit: Fixed it by swapping CEs and servants around for a couple minutes, then they told me it got unstuck and was updating properly. That's really strange.

Finally got my MLB PWR CE and started working on the challenge quests. Herc was gg ez with Scathach, while Scath & Cu took 2 tries. First try I hesitated and got my shit wrecked, second try I just went for it as soon as I saw an opportunity and managed to win pretty cleanly. The rest will have to be done later because hoo boy, the challenge quests can be mentally draining even if you know what you're doing, especially the longer ones.

It's probably worth noting that the Medb challenge quest starts out with a 99 turn charm against male servants in the final wave. I didn't go into it blind, but none of the guides I looked at mention it at all, so I still failed because my Kontoki got charmed for 99 turns and I couldn't kill the druids at the end, even though Medb died quite instantly.

Don't make the same mistakes I did  :V

Males vs. Medb is always a risk when lore's involved. I pity the guys who tried to use Amakusa in the frontline for the cleanses, and forgot to pack self-cleanses too.

Hassan parade was pretty gg ez thanks to Nitocris, but holy crap that was a marathon and a half. Siegfried was... disappointingly also gg ez with Emiya. I only needed like 2 NPs to kill him.

Good god, my friend's Summer Martha saved my ass hardcore against Herc. I was certain that after Medea Lily got nuked before third wave, I'd be doomed, but thanks largely to my meme setup of Euryale/Stheno/Mata Hari/Mash, I slammed him with enough Eyes to break through four lives even with the debuffs (though lol one Eye only did 616 damage), and he was down to about four by the time MLB Rose Martha showed up to slam Berserker in the face hard enough to burn an entire life in one chain. She was down to 1 health by the time the last life burned out, but she at least had two turns thanks to my evade getting off cooldown just in time and poor Euryale taking death to the face instead of Martha.

I tried doing the final match, and got prompt nuked because AMAKUSA, YOU GODDAMN BASTARD.

So, Medb... Didn't expect her to spam the mook NP charge skill so often, which led to the frontline wiping a bit faster than expected. Fortunately, everything that needed taking care of was done in time, mostly thanks to Shiki being able to speedkill Medb, so my Rider backline had an easy time cleaning up the last two Caster mooks.

Now, the finale... Woo, that was a nail biter and a half. Took quite a few attempts, had to modify my strategy a lot and came down to a last stand between my Nero vs. Medea. That I managed to win with no command seals in reserve is nothing short of a miracle.

Heads up for anyone on NA reading this (assuming it's not too late already), don't turn in your Master Missions yet this week. They are currently giving one quartz fragment each instead of two.

Of course we don't really know how they will handle fixing it, but in any case there is no benefit to turning them in early. If they fix it before the weeks ends, you can get your full set of frags. If not, you don't lose anything by waiting a few days to find out.

Edit: Some of my friends are saying it's fixed already, others not. Personally I still see the reward as 1 fragment on each mission. Just pay attention when accepting them

No idea Generally unsure what's coming up, given that our "Clairvoyance EX" has been knocked down a few notches. Since they're deciding to mess with the schedule, and nothing has been announced yet, all we can assume that in theory the next Halloween event should be soon, and a missing Jalter banner should show up "eventually" but we don't know what milestone or holiday that might get tied to anymore.

There should have probably been a super/great success rate up somewhere or other. So that's a thing that also might potentially be coming, or might not.

Edit: Apparently the 4M Jalter thing has been announced, but it's not in either the game news or on the official site yet. So that's nice. Edited to reflect such

My 10-roll was mostly unimpressive; a 4* Event CE, NP5'd Mephistopheles, but otherwise nothing else of note.

Side-note, only Caster Cu, Bedivere, and Tawara are my only 3* (or lower) servants not NP5'd.

I came in after the GoO event.  So which should I prioritize; Liz's ascension mats or event ce's?

I just noticed the Event Shop and Mash's Mission Board exchange now have subs.  Curiously, Da Vinci's shop does not (yet).

If you don't have a bunch of gacha CEs to boost currency, it's probably best to farm the pyramid with a MLB Liz CE so that you can work on all three at once. It's hard to work out exactly when it becomes more efficient to swap over to the individual currency nodes, though.

Personally I'm going to keep doing the pyramid until I'm left with just one type of currency missing, then go wherever that is.

So, there is an Anime NYC convention going on and their FGO panel just announced a variety of QoL updates due out November 18th. We don't get the super awesome back button yet, but we do get the still awesome friend messages. There are a bunch of other things being implemented as well, but since I've been working on my JP account for awhile, I wanted to highlight a few that are really cool. In essence, we are getting a sizable part of the JP UI without the back button and persistent present box.

- The icon display size button will fit more character, CE or exp cards in a row. Going from a 5x3 grid to a possible 7x4 grid is actually a really big deal to minimize scrolling.
- When enhancing with Exp cards, there will be an information column on the right showing how many bronze, silver, and gold embers you currently own and divided by class as well.
- Enhancing will show the exp overflow on the level you reach (for instance, you use this many cards, you will get to level 58 and 40% of the bar).

I haven't used the Select Sort option on JP cuz it's too hasslesome to try to really sort it in Japanese, but I imagine it could be quite good as well.
The special banners for Thanksgiving are the JP 2017 New Years moved up on the EN server by 6 weeks and having Ishtar and Kintoki replaced by Raikou and Shuten. So we get the fun of deciding how much to roll on some coveted limited servants while the game-changing Merlin approaches next month. We won't have the paid SSR roll, so at least that'll shift to January 2019 like it should have been for last year. We'll see how EN handles the New Years stuff with Musashi and her former banner mates.

My EN rolls have been so-so with only Tristan during Camelot and NP2 Nursery Rhyme at the start of the Xmas rerun. My JP rolls... are pretty insane though. 7 SSRs and 17 SRs since I started it in August with Summer Jeanne, Summer BB, Raikou, Abigail, and Erishkigal when they were featured and still plenty of SQ to spare. It is enough of a blessing that I don't want to neglect it, but at the same time, I just don't have the time to treat it with the love it deserves. I had to rush through Babylonia (this early preview of it was fun... and terrifying in quite a few fights plus I used friend Merlins the entire way through as a crutch which we won't have when it starts here) to get in on the JP Xmas rerun. Halloween 3 and Xmas 3 are quite the decent events imo.

By the way, Costco is having the reduced price Apple Gift cards from Nov 16th to the 19th if some people want to get in on that. $100 gift card is now about $80, limit 2.

Any guess on the 4th Santa welfare servant?  I'll take a wild guess and say it'll be Ereshkigal given how 4 is associated with death in Japan.

King Hassanta????

The current theory is that the Santas are the female bosses of each Singularity (Alter, Jalter, Altera), so the likely one this year is Medea. Which I don’t mind, because Medea is criminally underused. I just wouldn’t look forward to the following year (not unless they go for the SunTamamo pun).

I liked using Sanzang. "I punch you into the mountain! I punch you into the mountain again! I'm just a Caster; how am I punching you all the way into the mountain a third time?!" I went full tanky with Medea Lily and Mash, but it was basically overkill.

JP took down Barbatos in 12 hours (I was told it was initially 3 hours, but it was deemed too fast with not enough room for participation, so then all the pillars were buffed up to several times more lives)

We took him down in 18. Korea took nearly 2 days to kill it, but they are going through some stuff right now and participation is very low, so I don't know if it's any good comparison.

I don't know the times for any other servers who may have fought him already, just those three.

JP may end up getting LoliVinci as a fighting Servant pretty soon; she's the next character in Arcade (Rider class!).

So who's everyone farming, now that Barbatos died too soon? Flauros and Forneus are popular enough that they're already halfway dead, and Sabnock is getting there because screw fighting the wide-area attack boars for their gallstones. (I really want those gallstones to max ascend Gorgon.)

With Sabnock joining Barbatos and Flauros in the dead pile, we're more than a third of the way through this raid! Forneus appears to be the next to fall, then it'll be a toss-up between the ignored pair.

RIP gallstone generator; we hardly knew ye.

Also remember to have somebody equip a MLB Mona Lisa if you can spare one; the QP is no joke from these guys.


Unlikely headcanon: The devs are intentionally nuking the pillars early because of the whole "strike a balance between farming and story progression" thing JP talked about.

Halphas seems to be the next target.

I'm internally raging at the distinct lack of Robin Hoods and/or Chloes in my friend supports. C'mon, they're one of the best, cheapest ways to smack the trash heap around, and yet most of my friend supports are doing AoE NP Archers like Arjuna and EMIYA. And the ones that do have haven't bothered to train their skills, including a level 90 Robin with only a level 4 Golden Rule and no May King (seriously, what the f?!).

Also, Abandonment straight into Incineration is painful; even more so than Drifting spam.

I'm already missing Amon and my ability to cheese the f out of him with double Shikis with NP Gain. Three AoE normals from Amon = firing off one or two MEoDPs a turn.

Because what if they include references to LB parts or servants from such. For instance, datamines suggest old Li will be part of this NY event, but without playing LB3, people would be asking, WHO IS THIS OLD MAN?!
They've said previously that they would start requiring further completion in the story for certain events because they don't to be restricted for story reasons when making events.

Kilga, I'd recommend you go for Assassin banner, because JAlter and Gorgon can easily use and abuse Jack's absurd stargen to get around their terrible Crit Gather rates, so they can go with a crit booster CE instead; while Jeanne can help keep your main line up ridiculously long, especially since your main crew isn't all that great at tanking things. Plus they're both on your top line, and the guarantee is literally 50/50.

Odds are kinda meh on the Caster banner; NP4 Tamamo isn't very much an upgrade to her heal, and there's not really much occasion you'll ever want to get that 200% or 300% NP Gauge that would make NP4, pending NP5 worth it. Sanzang is good for you for obvious reasons, but the fact that Waver is so low on your rankings makes this basically a 1/3 chance it would help your situation.

Saber banner after that; while the chance of Altera is always a risk, Moedred and Saber are both high ranking picks for you; more than Orion and Tesla, even accounting for Arjuna risk.

If you're still hesitant after that, go big or go home; Saber banner for the chance on Mordred.




Anyway, I ran the Musashi banner a few times thanks to the bonus Summon Tickets in the shop (there's a second load of everything in the MP shop, same prices though), and got spooked by foxy waifu, who helped me so much against Andromalius thanks to Fox's Wedding allowing me all the various buff types on Robin.

EDIT: My own adventure with the Assassin banner netted me Jeanne. I would have preferred best daughter, but I do in fact need a healer tank, so Jeanne is good.

God, I'm so in need of all the stuff now. Caster everything especially, with both Helena and Tamamo joining my other gold Casters.

Rolled the guaranteed Rider gacha where Ozy = Quetz >>> Medb > NP2 Drake. Ended up with Medb. Slightly meh since Kintoki Rider is so strong that he spoils the joy of most NP1 SSRs and Medb lacks the utility of Ozy and waifuness of Quetz. But at least she is a new servant and I may be able to make use of the anti-Male aspect in the future. Then I spent all my remaining 14 tickets and around 30 quartz split amongst the existing banners before they disappeared at midnight. Got Martha (NP2), Ibaraki (NP2) and Gorgon. Reasonably pleased with those results despite no Musashi.

Musashi is pretty cool and her questline just ups her character even more. I really would be compelled to spend more of my remaining 90 quartz, but I need to cut myself off and try my luck at the upcoming King Hassan banner.


1. Mordred
2. Orion
3. Tamamo
4. Jeanne
5. Jack
6. Sanzang
7. Ozy

18. Karna
19. Arjuna
20. Altera
21. Medb
Based off this, you probably should roll the Assassin/Extra banner. Only Jeanne and Jack are on it (and they are both extremely good playwise, especially Jack). And it gives you the possibility of pulling particular 4* like Gorgon or more Stheno. It would have been that or the Caster banner, but because you have Tamamo at NP3, she benefits less if you get her to NP4.

While normal banners often have people saving up for a particular one or shooting for the moon, guaranteed paid banners tend to be approached with a "better safe than sorry" mindset. Aiming for Mordred or Orion and ending up with Altera or Arjuna in your case would leave a bad taste in your mouth.

And cut by Solciel who lays out the good gameplay reasons for the same choices as well.

Still mulling over NA guaranteed gacha, but went straight for JP. Alterego card.......and it's Kiara. Granted, fills a niche I didn't have filled, but she's not exactly high on my list, unlike the other two Alterego possibilities.

Kilga, I'd recommend you go for Assassin banner, because JAlter and Gorgon can easily use and abuse Jack's absurd stargen to get around their terrible Crit Gather rates, so they can go with a crit booster CE instead; while Jeanne can help keep your main line up ridiculously long, especially since your main crew isn't all that great at tanking things.

This exactly. Jack and Jeanne will both fill niches that you don't have filled yet.

Class-wise, Saberlot, Robin Hood, Lancer Shu Wen, and Tamamo are good reps of their class, and you have Stheno as an assassin, so you could go Rider to cover the class gap if you're willing to accept the 1/4 chance of Medb. Don't you have Brotoki and Santa Alter tho? If you do, they're definitely worth leveling.

Oh naw I get it haha, looks like we're in the same kind of boat eh?

I actually wanted to buy some SQ to help roll Merlin but I couldn't do that either, so :V for now it's still the F2P life for me

Speaking of Merlin, I rolled a whole lot for him and all I got to show for it is a Black Grail and an NP2 for my Tama-Cat who was my starter pokemon tutorial roll. It was moderately disappointing but I can't even be too mad at that, the Black Grail will be very useful to me and now Cat's a little bit more viable than before.

Nothing really of note from rolling the Musashi (I had left over SQ from the SSR Paid Gacha).  Not bothering with the Hassan banner even though I have 30+ SQ on me right now.

If you want pages now, head to Hyde Park in London. Five Magic Book-type enemies per 20 AP; bring along a wide-area ID attacker, like Nitocris or Void Shiki. If you want to be cheeky, bring along a Starting NP Sassy Shiki with a high enough Ying-Yang skill to up your chances of nuking the third wave Grimoire. The other four are Skeletons, which help with Bone Hell occasionally.

Yeah, I'm in the middle of that feel myself, with so many of my Servants needing 50+ pages... Not helping is miss "I need 84 pages!" that popped up for me last banner.

Still, it's apparently averaging only around a 25% chance per run, which is the best we're getting until Shinjuku, where the boss enemy is an Evil Eye-type instead.

Debating about buying a some SQ...  "Orion" and Marie aren't priority servants, but I am lacking 4*+ servants in the Saber, Archer, and Assassin ranks that I haven't max leveled.

As for Cholecysts…  Don't expect them for near future.  Re-Runs, various Campaigns, and EoR are going to dominate things for awhile.  From what I can tell, they won't be in a event shop until SE.RA.PH, which should be in early May.

If you're not aiming specifically for Orion (for waifu reasons) or the CEs, skip this banner. Stheno isn't a particularly great unit if you don't stack Divine Servants specifically to get powered off Whim of the Goddess, or take advantage of her absurd NP Gain to spam the hell out of the Defense Down on Smile of the Stheno (we don't have the dispel effect yet on EN); and Euryale does almost everything else Stheno does better.

Orion herself is a bit overshadowed by Euryale too, which says a lot about how effective they are at the anti-Male niche.

Gramps banner is still up for this next week anyway, so if you're going to be spending cash right now, that banner is better all around.

After nothing but disappointment from Merlin's banner, I didn't have much hope of it actually working out but I tossed all the tickets I accumulated at Dantès. He came home, but I quickly realize I am lacking in virtually all of the mats for his skill levels, so he brought with him a solid month or two of mat grinding hell  :derp:

edit: i did a bad, i attempted to NP2 an SSR which is something an f2p should hardly never ever do, and Dantès came home again from today's ticket :ohdear: before the start of the event I already decided that I would commit all the Prison Tower tickets to getting him, but I better stop myself right there before I regret it...

Step 2: Witness the memery
Step 3: gg ez :V

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order: 3rd Anniversary
Post by: Rei Scarlette on January 30, 2019, 10:57:46 am
Yeah, it looks more difficult on paper, but in practice it's not bad.

I used my own Mash, a friend's Merlin, and my own Euryale (only half-skilled) and that took me through the entire fight completely unscathed. I swapped Euryale out for Dantes when it came time to deal with Amakusa, but really any Berserker or Avenger would do as long as you off him before his buff-wiping NP can do too much damage.

In the end, everyone was practically full health. Mash will tank ST NPs with taunt+invul, Merlin will protect you from AoE NPs. Garden of Avalon paired with Mash's defense skill and Lord Camelot will keep you in good health.

(https://i.imgur.com/MIfAEcK.png)

The one CS I used was actually against that goddamn massive ghost from the main event story, it gave me more trouble on its own than this final challenge did.

It's worth a whopping 3 tickets and some nice mats, so at the cost of only 5 AP to run it, I'd honestly recommend trying it at least a few times even if you're unsure about it.

Edit: Even if something catastrophic happens, you can use command seal revives if you make it at least to Amakusa or Dantes, because reviving at that point means you basically have the fight in the bag already.

Tried the Merlin/Mash/Euryale/4th-Slot Avenger strat for the Dantes Challenge Quest and it worked like a charm with a fair amount of room for error. Caligula is very conveniently paired with two Lancer homonculi that can kill Euryale for you in plenty of time to build your Avenger's NP up to wipe Shirou out before he can do anything. It's like the quest was made specifically with her and her skillset in mind (no female Servants aside from Jeanne, two male Saber servants before Lancers of any kind show up).

Good luck with your Valentine's rolls, friends. I noticed a few of you already got Ecchan (and grailed to 100 too  :V ), congrats!

I'm fresh out of quartz/tickets so I'll have to wait unless I get lucky with login bonus quartz. I'd be real happy if I got her, but my chances are low after going all out for Dantès, so it's fine either way.

...also, farming ALL type coins is a real struggle it seems, hopefully the later nodes from tomorrow will be more generous with ALL coins.

It took me 117 turns to turtle my way through that nightmare, I had to take a support Jeanne with MLB Prisma Cosmos because no amount of attempted healing from a caster would keep me alive. Support Merlin, Waver, and Tamamo were all useless since Salter kills them almost instantly, and I had no way to protect them.  :V

Even taking Hans to try and split the damage between himself and Sup!Merlin, all it takes is one crit for Hans to be taken down so yeah I had literally no other options.

Took me 39 Turns and 2 SQ to beat that SAlter, she always made a bee-line to the support Merlin.  Didn't use a 3 seal Command Revive since I used that on the Gawain fight (DIEDIEDIE and never come back).  The "Hyper-Forward Little Devil Girl" was the MVP.  I probably could use a 5* single target Archer...

Currently getting caught up with Interludes and Strengthening quests, then it's back to farming for pages  :qq:.

SAlter focus fires Casters first. Never expect any of them to last long enough to eat the first Excalibur Morgan.

(Meanwhile, I'm still busy trying to beat the Valentine's Challenge Quest because of Arctic Warfare shenanigans)

Anyone had a chance to fight the new sidequest in the CCC rerun yet?

Took me 46 turns and a support Tamamo, but I took Salter out with a 3 seal revive. Talk about whale teams though - I had to use Waver+Jeanne. Thank goodness Kuro is such a good DPS archer. Her crit down on NP helped quite a bit.

JP players, I hope you haven't been spending all your Quartz trying to get Passionlip and Meltryllis, because it turns out that we are getting a new Limited (https://webview.fate-go.jp/2019/re_extraccc_pu2/). A 5* Limited, which is a first for new rerun Servants.

Somewhere along with "where's Tiamat's banner?"

Finished the Shinjuku main Quests... The Avenger boss fights were pure hell.
None of the new servants seems worth trying to roll more than a single 10x roll.
I want SAlter's outfit as a Costume Dress.  (Partly due to me lacking a Jalter on my team...)

On to the Free Quests, then more paper farming.

Agreed. The SE.RA.PH event can't come fast enough at this rate.

You ever do a set of rolls that gives you a feeling so complicated

All I wanted was Salter, and instead I got Enkidu, Emiya Alter, Prisma Cosmos and Heaven's Feel

I feel like I'm not even allowed to be upset at those rolls, but I got 3 things that were far more rare than my target, and then my one chance was stolen away by the shared rate up  :derp:

At least I still really like both of these servants as well, so I'm happy, BUT ALSO STILL SAD TOO THO

See: That time I rolled for OG Nero and got Altera instead, or that time I rolled for SS Martha and got Squirtoria instead :V

Arthur and the Boys Collections are now live.
I'll toss a ticket at each of the Gachas once, but I'll save my SQ for Okita.
I may give a pair of Grails to SAlter too.

Also, 1/2 AP XP Farming.

4 10 rolls and 5 tickets later, no Daishouri.

Instead I NP2'd Atalante and landed Nitocris.

I feel like the worst part about having the GudaGuda rerun right now is having to decide on either points grinding or 1/2 AP Ember grinding.

Sakura Saber GET! This just makes my Ember situation even worse! Lancelot and SAlter are also clamoring for Saber Embers, CasGil is impatiently glaring at me, never mind all of my other Casters...

No Okita yet, but I did get Enkidu out of nowhere, so hey.

Also, since this thread has hit 1000 posts, if someone could make a new thread, it would be appreciated. I'll lock this one at that time.
