Caster Quest has been pretty good - grab someone else's Drake and my own Martha and Mary and they can wipe the final wave in a turn. Drake can also wipe the second wave mostly by herself via NP and have a decent chance of restoring her bar by the end of it.

I'm skipping caster and sin rateups. I'm missing any good caster on my team (Helena, when will you come here! Q_Q) so I'd be stuck doing the 35 AP anyways.

Though, honestly, a lot of this event is too expensive in terms of the shop. Like, to get 9 4* experience cards for 40 AP, you need 180 chocolates - aka, you'd need almost an entire team of rateups. Versus you can run the daily. Outside of the extra expensive ascension items, there's really little point.

It's berserker time! I've almost got Fran's coins already but I'll take it nonetheless!

The Bigfoot: Curse you penguins! I knew all that waddling and falling around was a bluff|woolyshambler: frankly i'm surprised the genetically enhanced mutant penguins hadn't shown up sooner. you could say i've been expecting them. |GreyCat: duke could be better at spelling, but he chooses instead to spend his time focusing on arse|The Meta concedes Penguins are better|Deeox2: Looked like the commbox collectively lost it. Nice.|Jynx: Yandere Duke scares me... A lot.|Deeox2: Hey. It ain't lewd. I'm just waiting for Duke to kiss me|Elvis Strunk: Silly Duke. I am the woman, you are the penguin.

Unless you’re going for maximum efficiency (e.g. 5 caster + 1 rider, or a full 6 caster party, all equipped with 4* and 5* quartz summon event CEs), you can always run with 3 riders in your front line, and using only the 3 lowest cost casters in the back line for the caster rate up.

Except the cost/benefit ratio of the event runs is actually easily superior to the daily quest runs in most aspects. The daily 40 AP EXP run might give you more EXP cards for your 40 AP, but that 40 AP spent doesn’t simultaneously give you a good chance of getting rare ascension materials.


On a different note, people equipping chocolate CEs on the servants that “gave” them (e.g. equip Scath CE on Scath) on their support list, rather than on servants with class advantage (e.g. equipping Scath CE on a Saber), is somewhat understandable since it seems appropriate if you don’t think about it too hard... But in practice, it makes me scream a little inside every time I see it.

Seriously on that chocolate CE Support thing. Equip the chocolate that they are strong against, people!

I only have 1 good rider though. :p Nah, I'll wait until Saber tonight to smash out the last 240 coins I need.

True, though what I need most now isn't really available. Gotta run for those horseshoes! Need 1 more~

I mean the 40 AP Saber/Archer/Lancer Valentines can drop horseshoes.

Welp, got my 10th page today for Helena's ascension if I get her, so now I really don't have much I really need in the shop anymore. I guess the rate of 200 coin / run results in 10 XP cards so it's a slightly better use of AP than the 40 AP quest.

Otherwise, waiting on KnK now. ^.^

So, I don't play on Japan because I like to understand the story, but I like rolling every so often. So I did. And, like GJ before me, I happened to roll Semiramis. Goodbye NA luck~

KnK event in a couple of days~! I need to stop doing things on Thursdays. It's always when FGO has new stuff released at the end of the work day or just after my time, and I'm running off to do something.
