Okay the Floor 90 boss battle was hilarious and not at all what I was expecting. Good show.

Gonna try to finish off Floor 100 tonight!

I played things a lot smarter the second time around and had no issues whatsoever. Go figure. :V

I agree that I would have preferred having the other for that fight. But I only have who I have. :V I think I like who I have in most situations anyway, even if the other is better for non-mob boss fights.

Another CQ falls to my lack of attention span to properly strategize and the sheer power of NP3 Rhongomyniad spamming. 4 turns because I forgot to equip the summer mystic code for invuln pierce even though I explicitly told my friend I would try it. So I had to sit through the 5 hit evade

Currently on (cleared) floor 160, I think I can finish it in one more sitting probably? Most of my time had been spent grinding in mhw iceborne with my squad rather than setsubun lol I'm falling behind a bit now

I spent Floor 200 with
Spoiler:
Mash/Hokusai/Passionlip
. There was a backup
Spoiler:
Meltryllis
, but miss AoE makes up for her... well, AoE NP with the rest of her kit crashing in hard. It's just a bit of a shame that final bar has cleanse on break.
Spoiler:
Also, Hokusai's NP gets the Special Attack buff because Kintoki's Human Attribute!

On reflection, d'Eon's Taunt could be more effective than the other options; your Taunter is all but guaranteed to die to NP barring Guts shenanigans, so having that three turn window would help a lot more.


I didn't find the drunkards too hard; then again, I was using Kiara to go stuff the Cavalry into a hole well before either of them could be a threat.

This year chocolate adventure begins, and a new assassin lurks in the event gacha.
Plus previous years' gifts provide a currency drop bonus.  Also, you cannot buy extra copies from the event shop if you already have the gift.  ALSO, these gifts only cost the same as a 2* CE when used in battle.

In my continuing adventures in 25spoopy8me, my 10-roll on the Semiramis banner got me both a rank up Assassin, and a gold ring Assassin.

Both of them were Assassin Paraiso.

I had a buddy get the ol' Stheno Special followed almost immediately by Semiramis. A double trick!

Not me though, I'm still fishing for more Ibaraki NP levels. If I pulled a Kintoki or a Raikou then THEY would be the spooks!

Incidentally, what's the functional difference between the chocolates and the gifts as far as Valentines CEs go? Are they identical?
I made a PADHerder. It's probably out of date though.

You mean the CE's from male servants and the CE's from female servants?  If that, nothing at all.

No, I mean the chocolate CEs versus the gift CEs. There are two separate lists of them, are they different in any way? They don't seem to be.

There's one list to receive chocolates (from female servants) and one list to receive return gifts (from males), but they are functionally identical though, it's just a male/female thing.

Astolfo, d'Eon and a few others, being technically classified genderless in FGO, can gift you chocolates as well as give you a gift in return for chocolates, so they are on both lists and have a different CE in each list.

Oooh, is that how it works? I thought both lists included the whole cast but that's just because I looked up Astolfo first on both of them. And also noticed that Enkidu was on both. I didn't realize most of the cast was only on one. That makes sense.

Gave chase to completing the "Little Ones" trio.  Instead I got spooked by Osakabehime and completed the E-Pen-Pals trio instead.  Also NP4'd Nitocris.

edit-

NP3'd MeduLily and NP4'd Liz, but not Jack or Semi.
And this makes my choice for the next GSSR a bit tougher; Assassin or Berzerker.

First try, no Command Seals. Only survivor was <2000 HP Mash, so I cut it really close, but they got the job done.

So once all of the production upgrades are purchased is there a reason to keep using the shop CE? Can excess pink bottles be used for anything?

The Flavor Bottles can be sold at the shop for 10k QP for each bottle after the event concludes.  If you've already emptied out the shop and gotten 60 Million chocolates, it's probably more economical for your AP to do the Daily Quests instead.

I know the Valentine's scenes become voiced next year, but would already owning the gift CEs be enough to unlock them in the Event Quest Logs? Or should I burn them all?

Is that a good QP rate? I guess it's pretty good. But I have everything unlocked and am nowhere near having all of the chocolate rewards or having everything I want from the shop, so I guess at this point I can start using at least some conventional farming CEs.

It's not bad but it's not as cost-effective as simply farming the 40 AP doors as one normally would. (Particularly since you can Lunchtime the doors.) If you still have shop/chocolist rewards to go for, though, then there's no reason to not continue using the Flavor Boost drop CEs unless you don't have enough space for them.

Regarding the voiced Valentine's cutscenes, I imagine that you can just hold onto the CEs and check the Event Quest Logs next year. If they're not voiced, burn all the CEs then and just get 'em all back.

You have to earn the voices by buying the events again, so you'll need to burn them at some point.

That said, they're decent CE EXP cards, and you should save five for the initial boost to event currency.


The grind is brutality. At max, you can only get 700,700 chocos per run. Just getting from 30M to 60M to 100% the event takes 49 runs. If you already aren't burned out from lottery farming back during Christmas and Da Vinci, you will be. If you're going for 100%.


In Challenge Quest news, Hokusai is unfortunately not ideal, so I had to run Meltryllis and Okita. Ugh enemy triple crits, though.

The Garden of Sinners re-run is inbound.  And this will be our one and only time to acquire 4* Asagami Fujino.  (Unless the JP servers has a banner w/ her again.  Even then, it would mean you're waiting 2+ years for another chance.)

Is the Valentines event FGO's grindiest event? I'm still not even close to the last ladder rewards and I feel like I've been playing this event a normal amount. I guess I'm just not going to get the last few, which is no big deal but not necessarily something I'm used to.

Man, Valentines was such a stacked event. I did a pretty huge amount of grinding and I still missed a lot of rewards, and as much as I would have preferred not to I had to skip through the scenes on the last handful of gifts just to get it done on time. And running it back to back with another event is a lot of action. What are we, Magia Record? Not complaining necessarily mind you.

It just now occurs to me that there are now multiple snake Assassins you will have to be more specific


(I dumped all of my tickets into the banner and got Fujino's 4* CE but not Fujino herself :( My F/GO run is officially not #blessed)
