Title: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on June 26, 2017, 10:35:41 pm
As some of you are already aware, the mobile game Fate/Grand Order has gotten a US release. For those of you who are new to the game, welcome to hell. The early game is hardest due to lack of access to ascension materials. If you can miraculously roll a Jeanne, you'll be good for a while. She's currently the only servant who you can max level right now, since she only needs servant pieces and monuments. Skills will also eat up your mats, so watch your stocks. Our first limited Servant should be Gilgamesh and should be coming relatively soon. The first actual event with story will be the Moon Goddess event, featuring Orion's permanent addition to the summoning pool, bringing Artemis' giant tiddies with him.

Here's a few tips for you:
As of now, there are currently only 5 permanent SSRs in the gacha. Artoria, Attila, Jeanne, Waver, and Vlad III. If you want any of those (Lookin' at you, Rev), now would be the time to whale for them. Even if they are going to be lackluster compared to later servants.

Waver supports are your friend, especially if he's been ascended at least once, and most effective with all three of his skills unlocked. All his skills give boosts to NP gauge. His first skill (Critical damage up) gives 30% gauge to whoever the target is. His second and third skills (defense and attack up respectively) give 10% across the whole party.

If you put the effort in to raise them, a lot of the bronze servants will still be useful even in the later stages of the game. Hans is a great support caster, Asterios can, with enough NP spam, practically negate all damage done to your entire team. He's been known to do this against one of the bosses in chapter 7.

Siegfried (AKA Sumanai) is also shit.

Gacha rates for gold servants are absolute shit. Prepare for much salt.

Siegfried (AKA Sumanai) is also shit. He'll be good in France because of all the dragons but not much else besides that. Even after two buffs in the JP version he's still not great.

If you get a Herc, and raise him and his skills high, he is one of the best servants in the game, even through the toughest events the game will throw at us.

As for friend IDs, well I guess those should go here too.

Mine is 453,314,890.

Also side note jesus christ there are so many things I dislike about the english version already. Mostly UI things but the translations are not exactly the greatest either.

If you have any specific questions pester me and I'll try to answer them.

My friend code is 615,729,491. For those of you out of region like myself, you're able to play via downloading APKPure and then downloading the game through that. Just don't download the Japanese version by accident :D.

GJ's criticisms of the English version are definitely valid. This translation isn't quite Moon Dwellers or Katakana/Hiragana bad, but it's not good at all. There's some juicy screenshots floating around Twitter showing off terrible comma usage, spelling mistakes, and strange dialogue options, but even without these outright errors there's a lot of stilted dialogue. It's really sad given the size and accessibility of this (despite the region locking) that they didn't spend any time at all polishing off the story, which is very much the meat of the game. It has the hallmarks of being rushed out the door rather than gone over thoroughly by an editor and QA. They probably hired multiple translators to speed things up which has led to lore inconsistencies, too.

Oh, and if you add me and your name isn't obvious, let me know - I got a lot of friend requests so I don't want to lose you~

Currently using 3 different Android devices to rerolol, trying to space them out so I only have one doing the initial download at a time.... Lost count of how many times already since launch, but managed to get at least have 5* Vlad and 5* Artoria so far.

But man, going from 6% for 5* in FE Heroes to 1% in F/GO is pretty rough. :o

Also the font bothers me for some goddamn reason. It looks like something out of an amateur translation of a doujin.

Post by: Arraxis on June 27, 2017, 02:22:51 am
I decided I was going to take what I was given. I got 4* Carmilla, and on my next roll got another of her and Elizabeth Bathory. Could have been worse - one of my friends said my Carmilla carried him through some early grinding :D

As to the font, I'm not font specialist I admit, so I'm not super bothered - asides from them not being able to master the art of line breaks - but I saw a screenshot where they used several different fonts on the same screen. GG guys.

Indeed, an Assassin is a good thing to have in the early stages of the game. Lots of Rider enemies in France.

As for me, my only 4* is currently Emiya. And miraculously, when I fed him all the free XP and Fou cards I got a Super Success and now he's level 33.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on June 27, 2017, 02:32:20 am
I got a Great Success on Carmilla and she got to Level 38 :D. Also, people should email [email protected] and let them know about your concerns, like translation quality and font choice. Do be polite when doing so, of course, but make it know that this is definitely an issue. There's no excuse for this sort of thing. I don't blame the translators, mind you - I'm thinking the higher ups wanted the game out FAST. QA is cheap, but takes time, and they didn't want to put in the effort because they know people will play and pay anyway.

Post by: mikebrand83 on June 27, 2017, 03:38:50 am
Ok, just rolled what will be my main account, with 5* Zhuge Liang (Lord El-Melloi II) along with Chevalier d'Eon, Emiya, and Tamamo Cat.

Since I'm keeping Vlad for my alt account, and probably can't be stuffed working a third account, anybody interested in taking up the account where I rolled 5* Altria Pendragon (sic)? This account also has Elisabeth Bathory, and a handful of decent Craft Essence (the best being the 5* Limited/Zero Over).

Started playing last night, having a lot of fun already even if I only made it through the first story arc so far~

The issues people are talking about do seem problematic, though Elvis hasn't been bothered by anything so far personally.

As for rolling, didn't reroll- also not really using any of the guys I did get via rolling; sticking to the default 'Shielder'+Saber Lily and any other freebies I get later, seems fun that way, and I won't have to worry about trying to get certain people or anything.

As for friendship, feel free to add me~ My code's 867,806,074

Damn, I only just realised you get a free 10x Friend Point Summon per day, and missed out on Day 1's roll.

Well, the drop rate for FP summon is pretty low it seems, so not a big loss I guess.

Used every bit of summoning stuff I had to try and get things I could feed into my main guys, level them up. Didn't care for most of what I managed to pull, since I'm sticking with the default servants only, but I did get something I'm keeping: Saber Alter! Sticking her as my Support Unit for others to pick, alongside an item that gives her an auto 80% Noble Phantasm at the start of combat.

Considering how Saber is currently (via my limited exposure to the Fate universe thus far) my favorite character, having both Lily and Alter versions already is pretty cool~ Now I shall properly begin collecting every version of her that exists! And then never use most of them for anything.

/me laughs maniacally!

/me is also in the beginning/middle section of the second story arc, and is enjoying it as well. He'll look forward to seeing what happens next~
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on June 28, 2017, 08:52:57 am
Elvis, fix up your party menu~! If you've just got a Level 1 Saber Alter there I can't use your Servants as support and give you FP~! Well, I could, but I don't wanna bring along level 1 servants :P.

Also, Saber Alter and Kaleidoscope? Congrats.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on July 02, 2017, 04:18:27 am
Since Gilgamesh is coming soon (http://i.imgur.com/IZkLiKG.jpg), it's likely that the NA release schedule is going to follow a similar trajectory to the JP release schedule (https://www.reddit.com/r/grandorder/comments/6jeg3k/for_help_with_planning_when_to_save_quartz_and/). Therefore, if you want a higher chance of getting Saber, it's probably best to save up your Quartz for now.

As for me, I'm going to charge forward to complete Septem, for hopefully higher chances during the "Nero Festival". Umu umu!

P.S.
First Singularity, completed. Second Singularity, unlocked! All roads shall lead to Rome!

P.P.S.
But damn, Grumpy Waver-kun is a total Badass in a Nice Suit.

I can just use the Waver's of friends. Lots of my friends have him - some because they kept rerolling until they got the account they wanted.

Septem completed. Okeanos... Isn't available yet.

Well, a good time as any to farm Free Quests for Quartz, level up secondary and tertiary characters, then farming Ascension quests too.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order

In the same spot as you, Mike. Probably one of the best times for it due to the lack of pressure from time limited events or progress :D

Post by: Revontulet on July 04, 2017, 02:33:11 pm
Got my first 5* last night (alas...no ZR); so it appears to be the time to begin farming quartz as well.  Gilgamesh is the next limited servant?

GJ told me about - a summer swimsuit event, so naturally I am rather...intrigued >>;
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on July 04, 2017, 05:31:30 pm
Summer event will be pretty far down the line, though, with all the other events before then. Even the Chinese version hasn't gotten there yet, but I think they're getting close.

Hmm. Right now diversity will be your friend. Take someone from a class you don't have if you can. Emiya will be a good future investment since he gets a couple upgrades later that turn him into a monster.

I've had Grumpy Waver-kun miraculously solo two full health Assassins in 40 AP Ember Gathering before, after faceplanting by poor usage of skills and RNGod punishing me by wiping out the rest of my team.

But damn, Waver-kun + Saber is perfect for Thursday Ember Gathering. I've just been going effortlessly through the 40 AP (currently 20 AP) run one after the other and losing only one unit (poor Mash) at worst.

I rolled and got Atalantnya with a golden ticket, but nothing else major. 3* Servants and a few 4* CEs. One of my rolls was... really bad.

(http://i.imgur.com/sEhArhn.png)

Anyway, I'm gonna start trying to level Atalantnya once we get on to Archer XP, and bonding with and ascending others. I may have no 5* anything - not even CEs - but damnit, that doesn't mean I can't kick some arse.

WOO-HOO! Just used a Summon Ticket (purchased from Da Vinci-chan's Workshop) to try my luck with a single summon, and while Gil is still out of reach, I did get myself good old Uncle Vlad on my main account.

Of course, this had to be after I've already burned through enough EXP cards and Ascension materials to bring my recently acquired Lancelot to level 50, and did the same about 12 hours ago with Tamamo Cat. :o

Well, Lancelot (with NP Lv2) is pretty badass anyway, so I guess I'm keeping him on team.

Can be used to describe both summoning 5* units and, perhaps even more so, for farming ascension items.

In order to help people with Farming Hell at the very least, I found this spreadsheet that could help people find the best places for resources.

Just make sure to set it to either JPN or NA depending on Server. (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_SlTjrVRTgHgfS7sRqx4CeJMqlz687HdSlYqiW-JvQA/htmlview?sle=true#) Gonna be a while for me to get me some Serpent Jewels, though :(. Likely have to wait for better regions to be released.

And here's a version that's a little more streamlined. (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_SlTjrVRTgHgfS7sRqx4CeJMqlz687HdSlYqiW-JvQA/edit#gid=525320539) I like it more, but you might prefer the other.

Nerofest is coming early! Through the 25th to the 3rd of next month, there will be Coliseum events where you can earn medals to buy rare craft materials and even some event CEs, and there will be a Rate Up for several servants, including Altera and Nero herself. Perhaps GJ, who is more familiar with the game than myself, will give us some tips and tricks for doing well in this event?
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: BlackStarLine on July 21, 2017, 12:06:49 pm
I went through it as well on the JP server. Basically you need to grind as much as possible. High level servants are always a good thing too, so try and get as many XP cards as possible for a diverse range of servants to use during the event.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on July 21, 2017, 12:08:42 pm
Well you see I would give you advice, but I started playing the JP version sometime after the original Nerofest.

...No. There was the first Nerofest which was supposedly challenging for early game players who had limited access to ascension materials, and then more recently a new Nerofest which would murder the shit out of us.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on July 22, 2017, 03:20:11 am
My tentative plan:
1: Get as many EXP cards as possible between now and the event.
2: During event, focus on getting the minimum amount of difficult/impossible to get ascension materials prizes to break through level 60/70 for my strongest characters.
3: Level up with EXP cards.
4: Using leveled up characters, farm the hell out of remaining prizes.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on July 22, 2017, 03:28:05 am
Yeah, I should start saving XP cards - was using them on levelling up other Servants now that my main ones are levelled to their cap, but the Super Hard Finale has a nasty looking gauntlet of Servants.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: BlackStarLine on July 22, 2017, 10:07:29 pm

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on July 23, 2017, 10:43:00 am
Once you're at a stage where you can comfortably start saving EXP cards instead of using them immediately, don't forget that you can always store up to 100 excess cards in the Second Archive, instead of having them take up space in the main inventory.

EDIT:
Your mileage may vary, but the 20 AP run is probably the most efficient to grind, since you'd get a steady diet of all three medal types with it... After you do all of them at least once for the guaranteed materials, that is.

Finally got a third copy of Hans! Two more until complete Noble Phantasm unlock. Seems to be harder to get him than Kiyohime, somehow~

Also, five AP quest is nice because I get to play more often, but the sheer amount of times I've done it is excessive~ Just need to get that last copy of the CE and I'll move on to farming for things for Mash's skills.

if I never see Enuma Elish ever again I think I'd be okay with it

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on August 21, 2017, 02:41:39 pm
About 60 more "dumplings" to go before clearing out all of the ascension pieces and monuments, which are about the only things I planned to get out of the store, besides the first Moonlight Fest CE.

Once that's done, I doubt I'd bother farming the dango needed for anything else in the store, since they're not really that time or AP efficient. Will probably just hit the 30 AP one as often as my AP recharges, for more Hearts.

P.S.
The event story was great, especially when it leans on the 4th wall.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on August 24, 2017, 09:50:24 am
The event is over, and I didn't clear the store of monuments, but I didn't waste my life grinding dangos as much as everyone so I have that going for me at least.

I also did a final 10 roll on the gatcha with the apoloquartz, too, and the only new thing I got was Gandr and no 5* CEs.

Hmm, today both Saber and Alter are on rateup, making me want to roll. Well, I did once, got Saber Alter to NP2 and got the new 4* Craft Essence, featuring none other than Fuji-nee herself! I'd say it's worthwhile, even if that's a little less funds for the Christmas lolis.

Shame there's no story event to go with the new banner and stuff, but we just got one so I shouldn't complain. In the mean time, farming money for the first time ever! Ushiwakamaru came at the perfect time for using Riders so that's unit number twelve.

At the very least I managed to snag a 4* Lancelot (Berserker) . Any ideas on getting the berserker monuments?
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Elvis Strunk on September 05, 2017, 08:20:37 pm
I don't really know much about monuments and the like, since I haven't prioritized leveling above forty, though I know that, when it comes to Berserkers, they don't have a specific day when their items are the focus- you have a chance of getting their stuff everyday, at a smaller rate, instead.

Still, I know events sometimes have those sorts of things. The Moon Goddess event had a few types, and Halloween I believe will have the others, but I'm not sure which Berserker monuments come from, so you may or may not have missed them.

Anyway, congratulations on Lancelot; I don't really need another Berserker after Kiyohime and Heracles right now, but he looks cool enough to be worth a spot, I'd say. Plus, that Noble Phantasm is awesome.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on September 06, 2017, 04:03:13 am
For Berserker pieces and monuments, you're going to want to do the Wednesday and Sunday "Duel with the Four Cavalries" daily quest. Ideally the 30 AP "Advanced" version, if your party is up to it.

The main thing to look out for in these (and for FGO in general), are to target servants with Evade/Invincibility skills first. Because enemy servants don't have skill cool-down, you can end up in situations where if you leave servants like Caster Cu or Marie as the last survivor, they'd keep casting it on themselves every turn. The Zecchan "With One Strike" CE helps with this thanks to the "Sure Hit" status, but I don't think we have anything that has "Pierce Invincible" yet.

EDIT:
Did pretty well on my main account summoning Saber Alter using the Quartz I've been saving up, even though I don't really expect to spend much effort in levelling her up, since I plan to stick with Nero for my main Saber... But since I got a message that my tax return was successfully processed and that I should expect to get the funds within a few days, I decided to splurge a little and see if I could get Waver-kun to NP2 today.

Got Martha pretty quickly too, which was nice. Then this happened (around after 180 Quartz from where I started today):

I see no point in adding the Black Grail to Saber Alter since she already hits with Excalibur Morgan like a truck :D. Best to put that on someone that can spam their NP and eat the life drain.

There is news! Okeanos will be released on September 28th! New Servants for summoning will include Francis Drake (5* Rider), Anne Bonny and Mary Read (4* Rider (Yes they're one Servant)), and I believe Euryale (3* Archer) will also be released here. There's probably some more. Free Servant at the end of the chapter will be David, an Archer.

Post by: Gamerjunkie on September 26, 2017, 04:23:45 pm
...Whoever is translating things... I really want to punch them... Drake's Noble Phantasm name has already been localized since Extra...

Anyway, full list of new Servants to be released with Okeanos:

Francis Drake (5* Rider)
Anne Bonny and Mary Read (4* Rider)
Euryale (3* Archer)
Hektor (what the fuck) (3* Lancer)
David (3* Archer, free copy given in present box once the main quest is completed)
Medea Lily  (4* Caster, Story locked, only available in the story gacha once you complete the main quest missions for Okeanos)

Also! New Craft Essences!
Victor From the Moon, 5*, Buster and Crit damage up
Another Ending, 5*, Arts and Crit damage up
Code Cast, 4*, Attack and Defense up for 3 turns
Anchors Aweigh, 3*, heal 100 HP at the end of every turn

David, eh? I'll look forward to using another Archer~ I imagine Gil will still be the main one on the team, but options never hurt~

Shall continue looking forward to more story content!

Probably won't roll the gacha this time. With Boudica and Ishiwakamaru, and also the obvious fact that I'll also be using Santa Alter come Christmas, neither of the high rarity Riders seem necessary to me. Even if half of one of them is a loli.

Yeah, well, Arturia had also been translated officially before FGO, too. I can't necessarily blame the translators for it - it's more likely an executive decision.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: BlackStarLine on September 26, 2017, 09:55:06 pm
I think I might just start stockpiling SQ and just wait for more event gachas... Currently the gachas are giving me nothing but shit.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on September 27, 2017, 08:42:35 am
Hektor on the page text, but rather self-evidently "Hector" on the image. Guess they're still smoking whatever they were over there, as when they came up with "Altoria". ::)
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on September 27, 2017, 08:56:25 am
Altria was either Type-Moon themselves or Delight Works. The translators are on record as saying they would have stuck with Arturia but they were specifically told to go with that. Even though Arturia's used in every other piece of officially translated work...
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on September 27, 2017, 10:55:44 am
In that case, Delight Works sound like the prime suspect, given that they're the only obvious variable between F/GO and all other officially translated piece of the Fate franchise to date.

Nice one.

For me, after 7 tickets and 150 Quartz each on both my main and alt account, I still haven't landed either of the female pirate servant cards.

I did manage to land 5* "Altria" and Elizabeth on my main account, as well as my 3rd Kaleidoscope (which is always a nice CE to have).

One of my friends got a Jeanne and an Atalanta, although he was obviously aiming for the pirates instead, which he got none of. He'd spent real money on it, too. Only half or so was paid, but I think 270-290 Quartz or so was used? Still, Jeanne is a really good pickup, even if she's not Drake.

Wah... I already spent all the Quartz I was willing to for now, but... Heracles~ I’d love to boost his NP to the second level.

As for the new dailies, even my weak underleveled Servants managed to beat the 40AP easily~ Of course, that was the Sabers, so it was always going to be least challenging. We’ll see what happens when I have to go up against Riders.

Eh, Boudica and Ushiwakamaru hardly need skills anyway right

Really gonna farm the heck out of Caster gems though, since I think only one of my three current guys have any skill above base.

My sincere sympathies. Honestly, as someone slightly bitter about no 5*s, I can relate, but I've recently been having luck with 4*s, so yeah. If you're not having fun, you're not having fun. I still like the story content and the events, and I just do a little bit of grinding in between other things. Hopefully if you decide to continue you have some more luck.

With that being said, I do like this roll, and I really hope this doesn't seem like I'm rubbing things in or anything. I didn't expect anything, to be honest.

Tha's a shame~ Hans for instance may just be two stars, but he's just as useful as Waver, Caster Cu, and Mash when it comes to Arts and surviving. A quick and easy healing Noble Phantasm that can easily reach Rank 5 is nothing to scoff at~ And that's ignoring his crit skills and NP buffs!

...That said, I could use some Pages right about now, so I'll consider using that pervert a little bit.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order

Just started using Asterios myself~ He's a bit weaker than the likes of Heracles or Kiyohime, but he's adorable and precious and- I mean he's got cool skills and an interesting NP. Not sure where I'm planning to put my Grails aside from eventually giving as many to Mash as I can if and when it becomes possible to do so, but Hans and Asterios seem like fine choices, just to keep them going later on.

...Also need to give them both some Fou cards, but I have way too many people that still need those anyway. Wish we could get more, more easily~

Aww. They really are both unite adorable. Shall definitely continue using both of them! Just need some Fou cards to make Asterios a little more sturdy, and he’ll be fine. Maybe if I bring Mash along with them.

As for Mike, sorry to hear about those potential complications... hopefully you’ll be able to get through! The only solace I can offer, if it doesn’t work out, is that this event will probably get replayed next year, so even if you do miss it, you’ll be able to get everything in time. I doubt it’s the best solution, but...

Caved in, bought a bit of Quartz that I probably shouldn't have, got a 5* CE~ It was Black Grail, though. A shame, it seems useful loli CE shall forever be out of Elvis' reach... What? No, it's not like I only wanted it because it had a cute Illya on it or anything!

Elvis will just try again on the rerun next year.

I rolled 3 times and used several golden tickets, and I got mostly junk. I was honestly aiming for the CEs rather than any Servants, and I mostly got 3* Servants. I did, however, get Tamomo...

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DMUzF2-V4AEmK3M.jpg)

Tamomo Cat, anyway. Still no 5* Servants for me, and I only got a few 3* Halloween CEs. I also picked up a 3rd Kscope. I think we're getting into stupid territory with those...

All that and the roll still didn’t include the Illya CE~ Still pretty nice though.

Unrelated, this 40AP quest is haaaaard. Elvis has to be very careful to win it, and then when he does it still drops none of the rarest material~ At least I’ve quickly learned the value of Medea; she, Hans, and Mash make a great team.

It also amuses me that I’ve been using only three star and lowers units for everything just because their skills and NPs are more useful. Who needs rare Servants anyway~

Rather burnt out as far as the Halloween event goes. I haven't done all of the newest quests, but I got all the apples and that lore, and pretty much everything from the shop, so I'm bowing out early. Just gonna use my AP for other stuff today, I'm not gonna stall team anymore right now. Hope the event's gone well for everyone else, and you managed to get most of what you wanted.

The Gudaguda event is starting in less than a week, and there's some goodies available! Asides from the 4* Archer Nobunaga Oda herself as a free Event servant and the 5* Saberface Okita Souji, there's Talons, Babies, Hearts, and Horseshoes available for mats, SQ for just getting points, and something I know Elvis wanted - special Nobu and Okita cards specifically to give XP to CEs! There's also a once-per-day 1AP mission that'll give you lots of points to earning the rewards, so make sure you do that when that comes up.

Started event with exactly 111 quartz + 1 summon ticket on my main account. Did one set of 10 summon and a few YOLO summons until I was down to 60 quartz, with only 3 event CEs to show for it.

... Then, of course, in the end I couldn't resist the urge. And thus, did one more set of 10 summon for the hell of it.

Got Okita to 2nd ascension, level 60/70. That should hold up fairly well until I farm more EXP cards tomorrow.

Also, I’m getting some scarily good luck with the RNGod this evening. I’ve only decided to finish off the main story before I continue farming not that long ago, and the one with Gil dropped the GUDA-O CE.

EDIT:
Okita has now been upgraded to 3rd ascension, level 70/80. Her third skill really helps her survivability, though I’m 19 Dragon Fang short of being able to increase the skill to level 6.

P.S.
Just now used the summon ticket from the main event for a single roll... GUDAGUDA Poster Girl, get!

P.P.S.
Not like I seriously expected anything, but since I still had a bit of leeway in my monthly entertainment budget, brought quartz to try for a few more events CEs and maybe a 4* gold servant or...

Got reimbursed for some purchases, so I allocated it to my monthly entertainment budget, and turned it into the first time I ever brought quartz for my second account (trying for the GUDAGUDA Poster Girl CE, to make it easier to get Hira-gumo for ascension materials).

All I got from four sets of 10 rolls was Lancelot and After-Party Order CEs. ???

Then I did a few single rolls with the remaining quartz, and landed Okita before I ran out. :o

Post by: Elvis Strunk on November 18, 2017, 11:26:31 am
I really like this Caster 40AP quest so far! Ushi and Medusa are having a great time. Completed it twice, got a rare material drop both times, as well as a gold monument the first time, and finally got a Guda-o drop on the second~ Plus the amount of items it gives is awesome; should be able to get everything I need to get Hans’ final ascension well before the event ends! Maybe pick up a few demon hearts while I’m at it~

From what I know Scathach should be coming pretty soon, alongside Fragments of 2030. That banner should be the next thing that happens, though I don’t think there will be any event to go with it- which is fine by me, could use a bit of time to relax and farm some Mana Prisms and the like~

How’s the event going for everyone else? Are you as Nobu as Elvis is?

I'm up to Level 4 Nobu and have all the skulls. Got a single Guda-o drop and I'm only going to buy the last one if I've got spare resources since I can't equip them all efficiently. Also got my second Emiya from a gold ticket.

Surprise. Thanksgiving is coming, with a lot of freebies and a guaranteed 5* gacha. Not sure if it’s replacing the New Years stuff, since it seems to be all the same as what would have been there... aside from Mordred and Jack not being part of it... Well, I’ll still roll on it, but if there isn’t one on New Years It’ll be a bummer; was counting on that being my final chance for a certain loli if Christmas doesn’t pull through. Still, we’ll be getting a good amount of cool stuff anyway, so I won’t complain~

Managed to finally get Nobu today and i'm at 2/3 skulls. Need around a hundred more of the gold drop to get the final skull. Any idea which mission would give me the most drops? Do bear in mind my highest level servant is Nero @ Lv.50. I've been abusing Mike's Gil in taking on the Saber class quest and the Berserker class quest. Because Enuma Elish is OP as fuck at 200%.

Post by: Elvis Strunk on November 19, 2017, 04:29:24 am
The newest quest is always better than the older ones. So the Caster 40AP quest is best. I've been running it with level 40 Ushiwakamaru and Medusa with a support lesbian pirate and it's been feasible. Make sure to grab a support that has the Poster Girl CE since that gives a bonus of the gold drop for every pile you get! Equip any you have while you're at it, if you're lucky enough to have any copies.

Just a heads up, I've limit broken my GUDA-O CE, so my Okita as support will give you +160% Honnoji Points. Should make it a little easier to go full NP on Oda, or try for Lore at 1.5m points, if you have the time to keep updating the support list.

The advance notice added some details on the availability of the Mona Lisa CE after the next update. You'd need 1000 Mana Prisms per copy, and they'd be available to claim till Feb 22, 2018, which is ~93 days from now.

Also got enough hearts to max both of Jack’s first two skills if she shows up. Now just need to grind like crazy and get those talons of chaos~

Gotta save apples though since Christmas looks like it’s gonna be a hell of a time!

Only about two thousand and some Mana Prisms which would probably be enough with event ones on top of that, if not for the fact I’ll be buying Fou cards every month~

8)

To explain a bit further, basically, there were 5 occasions of rate ups where I threw down notable amount of cash for specific servants:
Spoiler
  • Gil (July)
  • Waver (September)
  • Tamamo (October)
  • Okita (earlier this month)
  • Scath (today)
Looking at it that way, I've been splurging a fair bit pretty much on an average of once per month since release. That does add up to quite a hole in my bank account...   orz

Well, for what it's worth, I'm pretty sure I've gotten more entertainment hours-to-dollar-spent out of F/GO than I have with my PS4 Pro (especially since Fate/Extella is so much better suited to being played on the Switch, with all DLC included to boot).

... And on further examination, since I virtually put a stop to buying any games on Steam (only to add them to my backlog of stuff I haven't ever gotten around to play, lol) for months even before before I started playing F/GO, overall it's been more of a change in what I spend on entertainment (Pay2Waifu :D) rather than how much.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on November 22, 2017, 01:08:29 pm
Honestly that's exactly what I was thinking was probably the case. Which is certainly fair enough. I've spent a bit over a hundred AUD myself - not close to what you've spent, but not insubstantial. If there's an interesting banner and I'm not spending money on anything else, why not?

Got tempted into another ten roll. Was hoping for 2030 or Medea Lily. Got third Herc. Okay!

As for buying, I’ve spent a bit. Doesn’t feel like a lot compared to mike’s numbers though~ Will have spent a few hundred by the end of the year probably, gotta have a nice supply for Christmas. If only other things would stop tempting me. Silly healer Caster. Silly storylock.

I get the idea of spending money here rather than on games I’ll never get around to, though. Certainly I’ve put enough time into FGO to be worth how much I’ve invested so far, though I’m planning to stop spending at all after this year. Until something else cool shows up.

Just slotted Scath into my support list: 4th ascension, level 80/90, and equipped with 2030.

Think I'll pretty much ignore the Da Vinci CE for now, and grab as many 4* EXP cards as I can to level cap as many characters as I can during 1/2 AP.

(Translation: Aiming for at least two of each class, for the versatility to handle different events... More than that would probably require more materials than I can get my hands on right now)

Post by: Elvis Strunk on November 26, 2017, 10:17:37 am
This is why Arra is the best~ Shall look forward to testing her power out. Perhaps alongside Hans and Mash? Maybe throw Cu in as well~ Never die ever! Especially with three copies of Maid in Halloween.

Speaking of supports though, I picked up the two copies of Mona Lisa I could afford, one's on my Medusa right now. She's not really strong, but she's got a multi-target NP and if nothing else you can just stick her on your back line and use your own units while getting the boost. Admittedly, 2% isn't much and most people will probably not be farming for QP too much right now, even if it is half price, but the option is there if people want it~

Unrelated, hope that we get some freetime after the current stuff ends, and before Christmas and such~ Still have every Free Quest in the latest story chapter to do, and my AP has so many other places to go right now~ Alas, I managed to not have internet during the last bit of 'normal' time, so that's likely the only reason I'm behind in that regard~

Also I miss the Nobus. They will forever be my favorite generic enemy. Possibly in anything.

NOBUNOBUNOBUNOBUNOBU!

https://www.myinstants.com/search/?name=nobu

Anyway, she's up there now - don't have enough cards to really get her past 40, but it should be fine for now. I levelled her skills up a bit too, and gave her Prisma Cosmos so you can use her NP more often. I'd quite like to draw another so I can boost the amount of healing she does, though overcharging it only increases Debuff Resist. Just wait until her Interludes are up! Even more healing! We're kind of in free time right now, with a Daily focus. Not quite sure when they're going to start Christmas, admittedly, or London, or if there's gonna be a New Year's Banner. I want a New Year's Banner - guaranteed 5* is the only way I can win.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order

Until you get Atalanta to max level, if you haven't already, I'd say Nobu. Atalanta currently only has the 2 skills, and we won't get strengthening quests for a while still. Also her NP generation is pretty terrible.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on November 26, 2017, 10:00:19 pm
Mmm... It's up to you who you want to use your grails on, but remember that getting someone from 90 to 100 takes 5 grails and loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooots of XP. Doubly so for Vlad and Jeanne. Jeanne only gets the XP card bonus from All-class XP cards, and Berserker cards drop much less frequently in the dailies than the other types.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on November 26, 2017, 11:30:16 pm
Yeah, in terms of pure utility, the most efficient use of grails are on 4* (or below) servants. Getting a 5 level boost in a servant’s level cap per grail is much better than only getting 2.

But between Jeanne and Vlad, I would speculate that Jeanne benefits from the increased HP and ATK a bit more than Vlad does. It boosts her already abnormally high HP for better survivability, while higher ATK helps her fight harder and maybe still win the battle, in cases where she ends up being the last remaining servant.

Meanwhile, Vlad hits pretty hard anyway (especially if you’ve already maxed him out on Fou cards) due to being a Berserker, but also because he’s a Berserker, he’d die regardless of extra HP if you don’t manage him well in battle.

X-mas Event guide: (By Ceralune on Discord)
Cliffnotes Christmas 2017 Guide:

Typical Progression:
- Run 10, 20, and 40 AP in that order to buy all the CEs from the shop
- Save story quests for day 7, when Santa Alter is here and you have all of the Holy Night CEs from the shop

From here, prioritization is less clear cut. If you plan to farm the 50 AP for socks eventually, you will probably want to have all of Santa Alter’s extra NP levels and ascension materials by then so you can max her out immediately.

- Run 10 AP for bronze materials to buy the Chicken Bucket (ascension item for Santa Alter)
- Run 40 AP for gold materials to buy the Chicken Buckets
- Depending on silver drop rate from 40 AP, it may not be necessary to run 20 AP too much (for the Chicken Bucket). You may want to consider just doing 40 AP at some point for higher sock drops while still getting some silver materials. If by day 5-6 you are short by a lot of silvers, consider switching to 20 AP to get more.
- Try really really hard to have all of Santa Alter’s Chicken Buckets and Special Vouchers by the 7th day of the event, when the quest that gives us Santa Alter comes out. Use exp from the raffle boxes to max level her immediately... you’re gonna need her for sock farming.

7 Day - Santa Alter

Use ascension materials and Special Vouchers to max level/NP level Santa Alter immediately. Farm 50 AP for the remainder of the event and apple away.
The thing is, if you have to substitute out bonus servants in order to clear the 50 AP, you're probably better off keeping the bonus servants and just farming 40 AP

Do the Story quests really give that many socks that it's worth waiting for the CEs and Santa Alter? Normally I like clearing those first.

Post by: Elvis Strunk on December 01, 2017, 07:37:10 am
Three hundred Quartz went by, one ten pull after another. Every one of them had multiple 4/5* CEs, and I got nine copies of the new 4* CE. But three hundred Quartz, and not only did Jack not appear, but Nursery Rhyme didn't either. I got Marie and Tamamo Cat as Gold Servants. So no more ten pulls left, I dug into the single pulls I had left.

Nursery Rhyme appeared. Which is something I appreciate a lot, considering how close I was to broke.

Second to last possible pull, Gold Saber card. Saber is now NP2. I... am not sure how to feel about this. Knowing I was so close to Jack, but the tiniest fraction of a decimal away.

Sad, tired, but it could have been worse. I'm going to buy more Quartz in about a week if I have the money to spare, but hopes are not high. Resisting the urge to do so now, since I can't afford it~ Elvis will sulk for a while and then try and appreciate what he did get. A lot of good, even great stuff, but not what he was hoping for... an odd feeling.

Then, stupidly, I threw down more quartz in a foolish pursuit of NP2... Which ended up with Vlad going from NP2 to NP4 (cursed?), and Altera to NP2 (yay!).

Oh, and also, as completely unexpected surprise:

Finally got Jeanne, who I had hoped to get from the guaranteed rolls, when I got Drake instead. Well, I got her now.

I'm a moron who cannot resist temptation at all. Bought the largest Quartz package even though I really shouldn't have.

Naturally Jack shows up in the first ten roll, alongside a second copy of the 5* CE.

I will try my best to regret wasting so much money later but right now I just feel better.

Time to save these Quartz for some other time now, I have everything I want. In fact between Jack and Saber I have both of the 5*s I wanted most, so I dunno what to even look forward to next.

Anyway

Elvis is stupid, but also happy.

Literally reached my self-imposed maximum limit (yikes!) of how much I'd spend on FGO (for this year, lol). Or in other words, I was at the end of my rope in my quest to NP2 Jack.

But yeah, first set of 10 summon after purchasing the biggest quartz package, and she drops. Of course. Well, that leaves me 130 quartz to start off the new year. Definitely could be worse.

She'll be grailed as far as she can. :) Come Camelot it looks like there'll be 6 grails available to use on her, unless there are some events, which'll be level 94. So she'll still need 3 more. :p

Just finished the prologue(Singularity F), got to lv10, and now lvling some servants... and here comes the hard part: in which ones  should i spend the few itens i got so far? Well not like I have much options lol, but i want to make sure im not spending the few itens i got in the wrong place.

Right now im lvling up Carmilla (the only 4 star i got), Mash, Euryale, Medea and Medusa. I got a Fergus too but from what i have read I decided not to lv him up. Is it the right thing to do? Or shouldnt I even worry about it, since i got like only one or two copies of each and its not like Im lvling them up all the way to a high lv, just lv 10-15ish.

I did have a look on fgo wikia and the comments in there, looks like some ppl are desperated for a lved up Euryale to defeat a certain Gawain or something... which made me wonder, are there quests in the game that you MUST use a certain servant? And if you dont have her, or she is low lv, you simply screwed?

I have been looking for other players opinions in other places too, but i want to know what u guys have to say. Thank you in advance for the help!

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Elvis Strunk on December 05, 2017, 10:43:22 pm
In the end, you CAN win pretty much everything, no matter who you use. There are certain Servants that make things easier, and certain missions are a lot less difficult with a given person- for instance, Euryale helps in certain cases, like you said- but generally you can make do with whoever you like.

Mash is amazing, the best tank ever, and she only gets better as time goes on. Her skills upgrade cheap, so it's worth maxing them eventually, and she costs nothing to field, freeing space for other Servants and better Craft Essences.

Euryale, as stated, is great against males, and single target NPs are generally good for boss fights anyway. She'll do well against all Sabers, not just male ones. Her ability to charm can also be really great, and a NP boost skill can also come in handy, especially if you manage to get a Kaleidoscope.

Medea is practically broken. Level her NP gain skill just a couple times and she can go from 0 to 100 with just that. I'd say the spammable NP and multitude of Arts cards is worth the investment by itself. Though Elvis loves Arts teams, so it may be more or less appealing depending on how you structure your party~

Medusa is great for farming, especially if you have no other AOE Rider, or you wanna focus on quick cards and crits. Plus she's kinda cute and lovable. I'd say the free Santa Alter you can get from the Christmas event right now might be better, but she's worth the time as well, in my opinion! Even among other 3* Riders, they all do something different. Ushi is single target, Boudica is defense, and I dunno what Alexander does since I never used him but Medusa definitely has her uses. Especially once you start farming doors, or on Caster EXP days.

As for Fergus, he CAN be useful. Mostly because he has three Buster cards and a Buster NP, while NOT being a Berserker. That's exceedingly rare, and I'm not sure there are any other non-Berserkers with that set. So you could put him in a Buster team and expect him to last a bit longer than most of the other members there. Is he worth it, for that? I dunno, since I don't personally use him.

In the end, it all comes down to YOUR playstyle, and who matches it. As well as who you just happen to like, since Elvis feels this is the most important part~

On an unrelated note why are all of Jack's bond lines so leeewd maybe Elvis just has a dirty mind
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Verthand on December 05, 2017, 10:54:53 pm
Hm i see, ty for our opinion Elvis! What i didnt like in fergus is that he relies heavily on damage to be useful, and usually these kind of characters are good against weak enemies, but when you rly need a good servant vs bosses they let you down.

Also, there is something that im not rly sure how it works, the essence buffs. I guess I should lv them up to max before using it? Im basically fusing all 1/2 stars essences in the shroud of magdalene  before applying it - 25% def against male enemies + extra HP does sounds appealing. Or can you remove an essence after you apply it, lv it up then apply again? Also looks like the only way to lv up an essence is feeding it with other essences? And hm since Euryale sounds like a male killer, I guess I should apply the shroud of magdalene on her.

Post by: Elvis Strunk on December 05, 2017, 10:58:00 pm
Well, you can equip and upequip CEs at any time, to anyone. You can also level them up no matter what state they're in- equipped or unequipped. There are two ways to improve them, one is increasing their level, which will raise the health and/or attack they give the Servant they're equipped to. The other is to fuse five copies into one, which will limit break it and make the effect itself stronger. For instance, a CE that gives Quick +15% might limit break to give Quick +20% or even +25%. Though, limit breaking a 4* or 5* CE might take some time, and sometimes it's worth more to keep them separate.

Once Santa Salter is available, have her both on your own team and with someone else’s Santa Salter as support, and you’ll immediately get +8 socks per drop (on top of whatever other else you get from other bonus units).

Make sure you get the buckets of chicken first. Those are Santa's ascension mats, and being able to get her to 80 is far more important than a slightly stronger NP.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on December 07, 2017, 07:45:25 am
YMMV, but unless you have a level capped, fully Fou boosted party, you're probably only want to do the 50 AP run once for the Lore, then stick with the 40 AP run for either the stars or socks.

If you can outfit your party for +15 socks with 5 of the Jeanne CE for 100% bonus socks drop rate, you'd average 160 socks per 40 AP run (15×8 bonus on top of 5×8), or roughly 800 socks every 200 AP... Or to work backwards, you'd need a guaranteed 200 socks per 50 AP run for the same efficiency, which is much harder due to the variety of enemy servants you'd face (a little bit of bad luck will cost you command spells, quartz, or AP).
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on December 07, 2017, 07:51:50 am
Yeah, after facing that party, I'm gonna be sticking with the 40AP for farming. Considering it mandates certain Servants for sock bonuses, and the variety of enemies you mentioned, you're going to have a hard time.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on December 07, 2017, 12:29:34 pm
Awww... Hell yeah.

Just had another Holy Night Sign CE drop, so I could safely LB it (so it gives +40% bonus socks drop rate instead of +20%), and plunked it onto my Santa Salter in support.

This should make it easier for anyone who wants 100% bonus socks drop rate, but was short on total cost point, or would like to use the 12 cost to equip the Present for My Master CE instead.

I can personally vouch for Cu, Ushi, Hans, Medea, Asterios, and Kiyohime. Not to mention Mash, of course. Though they're missing Euryale and David in the Archer section. Probably weren't out yet when the guide got made. Still, Caeser can be pretty good even if you do have a Gold Saber, since I believe he's single target, which none of the Artoria are. And yes, three star rarity is the lowest Sabers go~ Even in the Japanese version. Well, of course, only one Servant has been added below 3* since launch, and it's a Berserker, anyway.

Looks like the next story chapter, London, will be releasing on the 19th! Even better, it seems we won’t have any events to worry about between the end of the Christmas event, and the start of that! Meaning, we’ll have a little time to relax and take care of whatever loose ends we haven’t managed to get to during the event spam.

Also Mordred gacha coming soon. Good luck, anyone that’s rolling for her~

As much as I like Fran, I have too many zerkers as it is.

On that note, Fran is super adorable and you all should roll for her.

/me is at least vaguely tempted to roll for Fran himself: she's one of the Servants that Apocrypha made him like. At the same time, there's a certain other 4* that should be coming this chapter, that he's at least vaguely interested in. Still, he has half a mind to simply save his Quartz for later, since the 110-ish he has isn't really a lot in the long run.

It appears they’re doing some rateup banners based on the singularities we’ve already cleared, before London hits.

One of which has rateup on Saber, Saber Alter, Heracles, Archer, and Caster Cu.

Welp, guess I’m not gonna be rolling on London’s banners.

Post by: mikebrand83 on December 10, 2017, 02:26:24 am
Tempted to try for a few YOLO rolls and see if I get lucky with Jeanne... Then again, even if I manage to get a 5*, I'll probably end up with NP5 Vlad instead of NP2 Jeanne, so maybe not.

The one I'm really waiting for isn't going to be here until February something (Saber Bride, of course).

P.S.
Did I forget to sing praises for how great the Christmas event is? Because the roulette is freaking awesome. Piles and piles of QP and FP, skill gems of every variety, plenty of gold EXP cards, and 46 Mana Prisms (if you include the 20 silver EXP cards).

Levelled Jeanne to 90, upped her skills to 7/6/6, increased a bunch of other servants' skills to 6, collected all monthly Fou cards, but already back up to 400 Mana Prisms, 262k FP and 60m QP.

Currently working on box 40~ It is a wonderful event, though, isn’t it~ send help the grind has taken over

Updated: December 10, 2017, 11:30:35 am
On an unrelated note, toward Meg: it seems that, between the 17th and 19th, there's going to be a rateup that will have Euryale and Medea Lily both on it. I figured that might interest you~

As well, I actually maxed Mona Lisa already, I'm mostly running the event for skill gems and extra Mana Prisms for whatever comes later~
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on December 10, 2017, 11:44:43 am
I'll have to request that you keep the maxed Mona Lisa on your Support Rider, whoever they may be, when there's not event :D. It's useful for farming the doors~

Well, whenever you want, I guess - just saying that Riders are best for clearing doors, and you're most likely to be clearing doors when there isn't actually an event running.

Post by: Elvis Strunk on December 11, 2017, 12:57:36 am
Spent most of the day grinding while doing other things. Cleared fifty full boxes. There are a few hours left, but... I’m done~ I’ll be glad to get back to more normal activities, and it’s good that this sort of event only comes once or twice a year.

Still, got tons of good stuff. None of my Servants have a single skill below level four anymore, managed to max Mona Lisa with a good deal of extra Mana Prisms, and I also have somewhere near a million Friend Points. Utterly no apples aside from eight bronze, but alas~

Hope everyone else had fun, and didn’t go quite as crazy as Elvis did. In the end, Elvis shall just be grateful he got his Christmas Lolis. The rest is simply a nice bonus~

I'm using the last few hours to farm ribbons for the Fou cards now. Santa Alter is currently level 65, which I have deemed "good enough" to clear the last wave of the 10 AP quest.

Wow and here i thought going from lv1 to 56 in a few days was an accomplishment... well I started when the event was going on alredy, but still I managed to clear up to line up 12 of the roulette. Obviously, all my servants were very weak, but lved them with the itens from event and I think i got a pretty decent team now (well at least clearing the 40 AP class was being rly easy). Nothing like lv 6 skills or lv90 servants, but well thats fine for now.

Thank you for lending you me your overpower servants lol, wouldnt have done it without you guys~

I've never been one to play hardout - frankly the fact that I've been playing daily since the start makes it the biggest time commitment to a game I've done. I don't think I broke 15 boxes, since I only really used apples when I was passing the time on the train or had spare time at lunch. Regardless, I think I did well, and I didn't burn myself out. Really looking forward to London! Anyone know how the story is? I know it's the same writer as Septem, but I also know she's capable of good stuff, as she wrote the Steampunk VNs.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on December 11, 2017, 06:00:45 am
I didn't actually get through that many boxes. I cleared through box 5 until I got the crystallized lore, and then just went to farm bows to get XP and Fou cards from the shop.

As another, unrelated note, I should mention that Saber is currently on rateup, if Jynx wishes to test his luck. Sure, the chances of her showing up are slim, but anything could happen~

Updated: December 11, 2017, 08:14:27 pm
Decided “You know what I’m pretty happy with the Servants I’ve got, let’s try making them stronger rather than trying to get more people.”

Rolled a hundred and fifteen Quartz, what I had left after getting Jack. Results:

Got Caster Cu to NP5, a long term goal that I no longer need to worry about.
Gold Saber! Could it be Saber?! No, Saber Alter. Well, I’m literally just as happy with that, I just didn’t think of her since she’s normally locked. NP4.
Another Gold Saber! Could it be the final copy of Saber Alter?! Nope. Saber, NP3. Way to play with my emotions in the best way possible, game.
Also got a fourth copy of Another Ending, be able to max it out soon perhaps.

Still, I think this just proves Fate/Stay Night was my calling all along. And Saber seems to like me as much as I like her. Gonna definitely try and NP5 her someday.

Y'know, i'm quite happy with the fact I managed to get 3 servants in the one event timescale. From nabbing Jack on one roll the immediately grabbing Nursery Rhyme on the one directly after. Also, NP4 Santa Alter. I never got her on the JP version. I think I may have started too late for that. Now I just want to wait until MHX appears so I can waste all my quartz on getting her. She is by far my favourite Assassin. Also, I want Karna again. I managed an NP2 Karna on JP before I lost access to my account due to teh tablet I was using fucking up.

Post by: Elvis Strunk on December 13, 2017, 03:13:27 pm
Ah, I haven’t had any issue like that. However, I did hear of an issue that’s been happening sometimes during Story Quests. The leading theory is that it was due to using the Support NPC, I think it’s an issue they’re working on.

I know for a fact it isn’t happening to me during Free Quests, since I’ve been trying to do tons of them lately. I’d suggest, if you’ve been only trying to use Story NPCs, try to start the Story Quest with a friend’s Servant instead and see if it works.

If that isn’t the issue, I’m not sure what it could be, sadly. Either way, hopefully they’ll fix it soon!

In that case, other than maybe wiping clean all of your Party Setup and Support Setup with Cancel All (just in case there was some sort of glitch causing a conflict between the game and the server), then rebuilding your teams afterwards and see if that helps, you might have to just report the issue and wait for the next update.

Post by: Gamerjunkie on December 19, 2017, 02:48:15 am
So! General recap of info for London, which should be live in about 6 hours (2 hours to maintenance, 4 for the maintenance):

New Servants!
Mordred (5* Saber, NP does extra damage to Artorias)
Frankenstein (4* Berserker, AoE NP)
Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde (3* Assassin, NP changes class to Berserker and increases Buster card damage)
Paracelsus (3* Caster, generally decent party buffer)
Charles Babbage (3* Caster, actually kinda bad)

Story Locks, actual story spoilers involved
Nikola Tesla (5* Archer)
Artoria Alter (4* Lancer) (Would personally recommend rolling for once we get the Part 2 gacha)

New outfits!
Mage's Association Uniform: Group Heal, NP charge, Command Card shuffle
Atlas Uniform: Invincibility, Debuff Cleanse, Reduce Skill cooldowns
Plugsuit Chaldea Combat Suit: Group Attack Buff, Stun enemy, Switch Frontline servants

New CEs!
500 Year Obsession (Apply debuffs after death)
Necromancy (Chance for Guts status)
Awakened Will (Lose HP every turn, possibly get 12% NP every turn)
Clock Tower (2% NP per turn)

Interlewds!
Medea
Hans
Vlad III
TamaCat
Mephisto

Super excited now that I'll actually be able to read story bits, since there's a looooooot of overarching plot stuff in this chapter. Including our mysterious villain, who finally makes their appearance!

Meanwhile, my alt account got enough for a single multi roll. At first I got a little excited because I saw a golden Berserker card, but that turned out to be just Tamamo Cat. Then I saw the bottom of another golden card...

Game do you know how many Casters I have.

Annoyingly, he seems cool, too, so I might use him. I have zero EXP cards right now though, he’ll have to wait a while.

Also wow Mystic Code Quests take a LOT of AP. London might have to wait a day to be started, since I wanna start putting Mystic Code EXP to use again.

Surprise, surprise...
What I expected regarding Mash: ten level increase after completing London.
What I got regarding Mash: twenty level increase toward the beginning of London, and her final skill.
Well, it took a couple apples to get the EXP cards and the last few items I needed, but she was level 60 and 10/10/10 within the day.
Only the best for my Mashu.

On an unrelated note, almost thirty Quartz now, so I should be able to roll a little on the Part 2 Gacha once that comes along. Hopefully that Lancer will come home to join the family~

London Spoilers
Also Alice and Jack died and it was sad why does the game make me hurt you I didn't mean it
It's cool having Hans around though I guess.
And there are just tons of Apocrypha Servants here, it's kinda cool actually.
Should probably finish London sometime in the next couple days, if I really wanna avoid spoilers~ Been taking things a bit too slow and also missing out on using AP here and there, with how busy and chaotic things have been. Alas~

Elvis has come to the realization that the vast majority of great things he got were in single rolls, so he did only single rolls. Took only 42 Quartz for the newest Artoria to appear~ It seems Elvis is destined to collect them all after all.

Plus now 29 leftover Quartz for whatever I wanna roll for later~ Christmas present Quartz are nice!

New Year's stuff announced!

http://fate-go.us/news/?category=NEWS&article=%2Fiframe%2F2017%2F1226_new_year%2F

Summary:

-New animations for Saber Alter, Cu, Medea, and Medusa
-Temporary gacha for Karna and Arjuna. Both will be permanently added with the release of the next story chapter
-Trial quests for Karna and Arjuna, which give summon tickets upon completion
-Various limited New Year's Craft Essences

No word on if there will be another guaranteed paid gacha.

Post by: Arraxis on December 27, 2017, 04:03:37 am
How are both Karna and Arjuna in terms of skills and NP?
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on December 27, 2017, 06:00:22 am
They'll be OK in terms of both when we get them. Both have AoE Buster NPs.

Karna has an NP seal/Debuff resist down skill, Buster/NP up skill, and his third skill is NP charge (25% constant), star gen, and crit damage all in one. His NP will be weak since it'll be a while until we finally get the upgrade for it, which will also decrease enemies' Buster card resistance (In other words, take more damage from Buster cards). His NP does extra damage to Divine enemies, and there are plenty of Divine Archers, but it's still going to hit like a wet noodle for a while. Standard Lancer cards, by which I mean 2 Buster, 2 Quick, 1 Arts.

Arjuna's first skill is universally agreed to be one of the most useless skills ever, since it's Clairvoyance (increased stargen) and he has 3 Arts cards. His second skill is good (NP charge of 25%, HP regen, and stars at the end of each turn), but suffers from a very lengthy cooldown (10 turns at max level). Tamamo pairs well with him in battle because of that. His third skill is a Mana Burst, same as Karna's. His NP has a chance to insta-kill enemies, and also decreases enemy defense. His cards are the same as Emiya's. 3 Arts and a Buster NP.

As they'll be when we get them, I'd recommend rolling for Arjuna over Karna, but once Karna gets his dang buffs he'll be the better of the two.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on December 30, 2017, 01:39:44 am
MHX’s upgraded NP does have a higher damage modifier than Jack’s upgraded NP, especially taking bonus NP damage into consideration.

On the other hand, Jack gets bonus NP damage against around five or six time more units than MHX, is a better crit star generator, and she’s far more likely to pull off ridiculous stunts like firing off an NP every other turn, or once every turn for three turns in a row.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on December 30, 2017, 01:49:53 am
She's also easier to level her NP, given that even though she's 5*, she's not limited.

Also New Years CE, flat bonus of more than 2000 health? Pretty cool actually.

Just found this, i think its pretty helpful for farming in the saber wars

https://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/180151-fate-grand-order/76145763

Looks like the best places to farm are these 3

Machine Parts Gathering (Star Cluster): Dragon Fang, Talons of Chaos/Chaos Claws
Machine Parts Gathering (Galaxy): Hearts of the Foreign God, Eternal Gears, Octuplets Crystalz
Machine Parts Gathering (Super Dimension): Homunculus Babies and Dragon's Reverse Scales

Have fun and happy farming!
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on January 05, 2018, 10:56:53 pm
It’s important to note that “best” is somewhat relative.

Star Cluster has a 400k HP Tesla waiting for you as a boss, and Super Dimension has a 1m HP MHZ waiting there. Both are liable to kick your ass hard, given that they are both naturally strong against the Saber class, and they both have just a 3 turn charge for their NP thanks to their own class.

Compared to that, even the 950k HP Scath waiting for you in Galaxy is a cakewalk.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: BlackStarLine on January 05, 2018, 11:23:20 pm
As long as you don't shove Sabers at the front of your team when dealing with Tesla you should be relatively safe... I say relatively but you would probably want to get a Jeanne for the invincibilty granted from her NP.

yup, "best" in terms of drops i suppose, since farming those itens is a pain aswell. I guess its a choice of "what is less painful?" lol... well, provided you are able to clear them without much trouble, then i guess they are the best choices material-wise.

Hence why i have been clearing galaxy so far, it drops hearts, gives a good ammount of altrium(something around 3.5k~4k base) and is much easier to clear than the other 2.

Star cluster is hard, but it can be done once you get the event CEs. Even i who dont have *any* lved up lancer could do it with a lv 90 altria, lv70 carmilla, lv 80 elisabeth barthory (ty arraxis!) and lv1 saber reserves, provided they got the event CEs.

About Super Dimension... yeah its a major problem. You need sabers to beat down the lancer dragon in the fight 2, but they will get pwned by MHX in fight 3. I guess the best choice is bringing in sabers in the front to kill the dragon, then bringing a good single target caster in the reserve would be the best choice against that MHX.

Well, I lack a lved up good single target caster myself, and the vast majority of ppl in my friend list either have zhuge liang, tamamo or halloween elisabeth bathory as their support caster, so that makes beating that MHX rly hard. I did it only once, it was pure pain, and im not doing it again. But well, i guess its supposed to be the hardest fight of the event?
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on January 06, 2018, 04:10:06 am
IIRC, the next singularity makes the Claw fairly easy to farm, so other than clearing everything once for the Lore, sticking with Galaxy/Scath is probably the optimal route for farming anyway.

Yeah, you're actually supposed to put it on a backliner. The game is supposed to give you 5 purely blooms to merge to get a 200% bonus, and then you put a 50% on a backliner. But we all want both front liners with a bonus, so gotta pray for a CE drop from one of the higher gatherings.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on January 16, 2018, 03:24:57 pm
Yes, we are! 25, to be exact, spread out over 5 days. Details for the campaign are here:

http://fate-go.us/news/?category=NEWS&article=%2Fiframe%2F2018%2F0116_200dlcp%2F

Also, while the +50 BP Craft Essence might not seem like much, I'd recommend putting it on someone in your backline, and possibly on someone on your support list. It's a good thing to have to build bond levels, and also freeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. We'll get another CE later that also adds BP (10% when MLB), but it's similar to Mona Lisa in the sense that A) It costs a FUCKTON of mana prisms to get and B) Does not do much unless you get all the copies, which, as mentioned in A, takes ALL THE PRISMS.

So, in summary:

25 quartz
5 XP cards
5 Attack and HP Fou cards EACH
5 Golden Apples
5 Tickets
Free CE (+50 Bond Points)
New Mystic Code (Anniversary Blonde; skills are targeted Buster up, gain critical stars, targeted Guts effect)
New Start Dash campaign for newbies
1/2 AP Experience farming for a week
New Interlude for Altera (FINALLY) with NP upgrade

Summon campaign includes:
Brynhildr (5* Lancer with Buster/NP up, Enemy crit chance/NP damage down, targeted star absorb/heal skills with single target NP)
Beowolf (4* Berserker with attack/NP up, Instinct, and Guts skills with ST NP)
Fionn McShit (4* Lancer, likely to spook if rolling for Brynhildr)

Beowolf and the Shitty One are permanent additions. Brynhildr will not be a summon focus again until Nerofest 2019.

New CEs:
Vessel of the Saint (3 time debuff immunity, NP gain up)
Golden Millennium Tree (Gradually increase max HP every turn. Does not heal with the HP increase.)
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Revontulet on January 16, 2018, 03:40:24 pm

The Two-current sea in Okeanos and the Berserker 20 AP quest are your best bets. Otherwise you'll need to wait until what I heard from one source is the 29th for the Valentine's day event where they'll be in the event shop.

And with that, Saber Wars has come to its conclusion, leading us into the 2M downloads campaign. Get those logins!

The special CE is available in the store for 5 Mana Prisms. Either tap the Event Rewards square in the top right of the main screen, or go to the Exchange Event Items section of the shop.

I'd also recommend equipping the CE to someone on your support list. Veteran JP players (such as myself) will be more likely to take your Servants for those few extra bond points.

Also, the Mystic Code quest drops a lot of class pieces. Meaning, enough to clear all the piece/monument related weekly missions we have.

I will continue updating this post until someone else replies or I run out of things to update with.

Event quartz logins will begin tomorrow if anyone is confused about that.

Brynhildr's trial quest should drop a gear, a homunculus baby, and a demon heart in all. Dunno if that's global or me just being lucky.

DID SOMEONE SAY CROSSOVER?

Post by: Elvis Strunk on January 19, 2018, 06:29:31 am
Elvis is taking it easy and just using this time as freetime to do whatever he feels like. London free quests, interlude quests, and of course, mana prism farming. That's normally what Elvis does when nothing else is going on anyway, but it's half price this time, so, hurray? Also decided to get Waver to 70 so I can get his last skill and as such not need to borrow someone else's Waver whenever I wanna farm stuff. But then I need pages, and they haven't shown up yet, so I may give up on the idea until some future event~

I think I have all the ascension stuff I'd need to get Jack to 70 so I could get and max her last skill, but I'm not sure yet if that's something I wanna do right now.

Anyway, for the CE, it was a choice between Mash, Saber, and Ushi, for me. Of the three, I already have a bunch of Mash CEs, and Saber's was just more dynamic and cool, in my opinion. Plus now since I picked Gil's last time, I can have Mash with a Mash CE, Saber next to her with a Saber CE, and Gil next to her with a Gil CE! I mean sure I keep Archer there most of the time but I CAN do that if I want to and that's pretty fun.

Kind of wish we had, like, maybe one more week, or even like three extra days, between every event, though. It really never feels like there's enough freetime to just mess around with. Well, maybe if I took some of the events less seriously rather than ending up with 2.2 million points in Saber Wars, for instance. ...still didn't get enough Hearts and Claws though~

Still, NP5 Saber Alter with level 10 Mana Burst is fun. I wonder what point I can get to before it counts as excess. Well, some Archer enemies would still survive probably, so I may as well keep improving her~

Valentine's details have been announced!

http://fate-go.us/news/?category=NEWS&article=%2Fiframe%2F2018%2F0123_valentines%2F

Summary

Time: January 25, 07:00 UTC to February 3, 23:59 UTC

Chocolate Exchange:
There will be quests where you get chocolate coins as enemy drops. The amount received is boosted by the Servants in your party (Class dependent, I believe the bonus is from females only plus D'eon). You can use these coins (There are coins for all class types + ALL class) to get special scenes and CEs from your Servants. The CEs unfortunately do not do anything. They're akin to the CE experience fodder (Unknown Substance *insert Greek letter here*) we got from Saber Wars. Use coins from the Servant's class to get their scene. Jeanne being an extra class uses the ALL-class coins. It's 150 coins per Servant.

Servants + CE preview
(https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/fategrandorder/images/0/08/Chocolate_CE.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/800?cb=20160211013416)

There's another drop you will get to buy items from the event shop. To clear out the shop entirely you will need 36,600 chocolate pieces in total. If that's too much for you (it is for me), I'd recommend leaving the class pieces/monuments for last, unless you desperately need them (which I do).

Additionally, Nero Bride (ugh)is a limited time Servant, with a trial quest that gives a summon ticket.

Bride's kit includes the following:
Single target Arts NP with Burn and Defense Down applied to the target afterwards
First skill: Targeted NP gen up to one ally (3 turns)
Second skill: Targeted Attack Up + Crit star gen up to one ally (3 turns)
Third skill: Targeted heal + Defense up to one ally (3 turns)\
Cards: QAABB (AKA normal Saber deck)

The gacha rateup schedule is as follows. No 4* Servants are on rateup. Nero Bride is on rateup every day.
1/25-1/26 Bride only
1/26 Artoria
1/27 Altera
1/28 Jeanne
1/29 Orion
1/30 Tamamo
1/31 Drake
2/1 Jack
2/2 Mordred
2/3 Bride only

Event craft essences:
Street Choco-Maid (5*,Increase Quick/Arts by 10% and healing recovery by 20%. Also adds 5 to coin drops of the equipped Servant's class for the event.)
Kitchen*Patissiere (4*, Increase crit star gen and NP gen by 15%, coin drops by 3.)
Valentine Dojo of Tears (3*, add Sure Hit buff, gives 3% NP gauge per turn, decreases charm resist by 10%, coin drops increase by 1.)

Melty Sweetheart (5*, event shop/drop only, increase defense against Male by 100% for 3 hits, crit star gen by 10%, all coin drops increase by 2)

We will also be getting 4 new Interludes.
1. Atalanta (NP upgrade)
2. Scathach (NP upgrade)
3. Tamamo (Skill upgrade, adds a heal to her third skill)
4. Fran (Skill upgrade, increases defense debuff on her second skill)

All of these will require the completion of London to do.

Okay, that should be everything. I might be remembering the coin drops only being boosted by females wrong. It's been 2 years.

I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this or noticed this, but for event quests, on the Select Support screen there's an option labelled "Event Bonus Filter" which makes sorting through supports for that one CE much easier.

Also, Bride's trial quest gives some good drops. Six seeds and one demon heart.

From what I understand of the event's structure, you shouldn't use more than maybe 1 or 2 apples on the first day or so just to unlock the higher AP runs, because at this point it's impossible to really stack the deck in your favour.

Once warm-up's over, there should be a rotating "rate up" of enemy class type every 12 hours, which lets you heavily stack the deck with up to a full party of that class (less whatever other servant(s) with class advantage you need to successfully finish the run) so every drop gets the full benefit from event CEs, to actually farm for chocolates.

Edit:
Yup, it’s started. Currently Rider class on rate up for another 11 hours or so.

Damn, in my opinion, the 40 AP Caster class rate up has to the best for farming yet. Not only is there a decent chance of heart drops, there's an even better chance of getting pages.

That's on top of Caster enemies have a slow 5 bar NP charge, plus loading your own party with casters pretty much guarantees your own servants will fully charge up their NPs by wave 3/3, and the ready availability of strong rider class servants covers your own DPS needs.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on January 30, 2018, 10:40:16 am
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.

Post by: Meliran on January 30, 2018, 11:52:05 am
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.

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.

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. ^.^

OKAY EVENT INFODUMP TIME

Event dates: February 8 to February 22.

How this event works.
This is going to be a different style from previous events. We are going to get a list of 100 missions, similar to the quartz fragment missions. Most involve things like "Clear room X" or "Kill X of enemy type Y." It'll be very grindy at first. Each mission gives its own reward. Some give summon tickets, QP, apples, ascension mats, etc. Mission 100 is to clear all other missions and gives a Crystalized Lore. The full list of missions can be found here. (https://grandorder.wiki/The_Garden_of_sinners_-_the_Garden_of_Order/Mission_List) I have a spreadsheet left over from when I went through this event on JP about how to efficiently clear all the missions. I'll look for it and put it in this thread later.

NEW SERVANTS THIS IS IMPORTANT
This event gives us a free 4* Assassin, who continues to be one of the best even after two years in JP.

Ryougi Shiki (4* Assassin) has a kit with the following:
Single target Arts NP. Ignores any defense buffs the target may have. Also has a chance to inflict Instant Kill, which scales with Overcharge.
First Skill: Mystic Eyes of Death Perception A. Gives Invincibility Pierce (including Dodge effects), Arts Up (30-50%), and decreases enemy's death resistance for one turn.
Second Skill: Eye of the Mind (False) A. Gives one turn Dodge and crit damage up for 3 turns.
Third Skill: Yin Yang B. At the cost of 1000 HP, charges NP gauge (20-30%).
Cards: QQAAB

As per usual, we will get her ascension mats during the event. Make sure to get all her things!

Gacha Servant
Ryougi Shiki (5* Saber)(RIP my quartz)
AoE Arts NP. Ignores any defense buffs on targets, and provides a party debuff cleanse.
First Skill: Mystic Eyes of Death Perception C. Invincibility pierce, arts up (25-40%), all enemy death resistance down for 1 turn.
Second Skill: Cloud Shine B. Attack up (15-25%) and debuff resist up for 3 turns.
Third Skill: Yin Yang A. At cost of 10% NP gauge, heals Shiki (2000-5000 HP).
Cards: QAABB

We have a lot of CEs this event.

Gacha CEs
Peerless Puppeteer (5*, start with 50% NP, Arts up for 3 turns, increase Black Cat drops by 1)
Mature Gentleman (5*, Death Resist up, increase Black Cat drops by 1)
Vivid Dance of Fists (4*, increase damage by 800, increase Strawberry Ice Cream drops by 1)
Mystic Eyes of Distortion (4*, Buster Up by 20%, Defense Down by 15%, increase Strawberry Ice Cream drops by 1)
Repeat Magic (3*, start with 20% NP, increase NP generation, increase Mineral Water drops by 1)
Sprinter (3*, Quick Up by 5%, Debuff Resist up, increase Mineral Water drops by 1)

Shop CEs
Decapitating Bunny 2018 (?) (5*, Invincibility pierce, Quick up by 8%. Increase spawn rate of Vengeful Spirit Septet by 25%)
Threefold Barrier (5*, reduce damage taken by 1000 for 3 hits, Increase spawn rate of Precursor Form (AKA Automata) by 25%)
Summer's Futuresight (4*, Evasion (1 hit), crit star generation up, Increase spawn rate of Undead by 25%)
Refrain (4*, crit star absorb up and debuff resist up for 3 turns, Increase spawn rate of Mansion Spirits (ghosts) and Skeletons by 25%)

It should be noted that you don't have to hope for CE drops for the shop CEs. All CEs, with the exception of Summer's Futuresight, have 5 copies in the shop. We get one copy of Futuresight from the Mission List.

Other things of note
The early floors are fairly easy to clear, however, as you go further up the tower, things get much harder, so don't go in carelessly.

There is a quest that will open up after you complete Mission 81. There is one NPC support available for this quest. Use it and keep it in your front line. You'll understand when the time comes, or when you go look up a mission guide, I dunno.

Overall, this is a fairly lighthearted event. Excuse me while I prepare a grave for my wallet.

The Peerless Puppeteer CE would have been so much better if the Arts boost wasn’t temporary. Oh well, the Shop CEs (especially Decapitating Bunny) being better than the Gacha CEs in general is a good thing for those of us not planning to try for Shiki (Saber) anyway.

This took 5 10 rolls, and 6 gold tickets, mind you. This Shiki is courtesy of Mangagamer, as they pay me in USD direct to Paypal which encourages me to use it on things like this. I might use more tickets, but I'm done rolling on this gatcha. Maybe I'll get the remaining CEs I'm missing.

I, too, have acquired a Shiki. Though it took more than 5 10 rolls for me.

Updated: February 08, 2018, 07:35:54 pm
Also, if you haven't done so yet, keep Assassin Shiki in your party since some of the missions require you to get to a certain bond level with her.

Completed missions at 97/98 for both my main and alt accounts. Got there on my alt about a day earlier thanks to having an abundance of golden fruits and unused EXP cards.

Now just farming room 803 for Mana Prisms, and more copies of the Decapitating Bunny CE (currently at 2 extra copies on my alt, and 0 for my main, lol).

The final missions are open! TO THE ROOF!
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on February 15, 2018, 06:43:55 am
For those who've yet to reach the rooftop, a couple of tips:

1) Unlike the three giant ghosts in the forest area, which were mostly there just as easy targets for Saber Shiki's AOE insta-kill, the one on the roof has much less HP but gets some resistance to Death in exchange, so you're probably better off with a standard Caster team.

2) The final bonus boss Saber hits hard if you let her fire her NP, even Archers can get OHKOed. Make sure to have skills that allows you to delay or dodge her NP... Unless you have servants that are strong enough to grind down her 500k HP within 4 turns, in which case you're all good.


Fun stuff:
Spoiler
When I did the bonus boss battle on my alt, I mis-timed the usage of skills, which caused me to lose both Nobu and Emiya to the AOE NP, and Gil got smacked due to having only a few hundred HP left and being the only target. Then I lost Shiki and Vlad one after the other. At the very end, I only won with Euryale surviving on ~200 HP remaining.

Post by: Gamerjunkie on February 15, 2018, 06:49:01 am
...I'm pretty sure I used your Gilgamesh, though.  He tanked through just fine. Defense boost from Waver probably helped out though.

No CS used this event. 10/10.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Elvis Strunk on February 15, 2018, 07:12:32 am
If ya need to survive an AOE NP- especially a Saber AOE NP- David is a fine option~ Maxed his defense skill and I dun regret it anyway.

Anyway, basically finished with everything in the event. Just from a story standpoint, I think it was my favorite~

Also got tons of stuff from it, it was really generous~ Running low on Lores, but that’s a nice problem in a way. Also probably used about a hundred million QP though~

Glad to have Shiki, also glad to have a chance to relax and do whatever between now and whatever the next thing is!
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on February 15, 2018, 07:33:48 am
When I did the final boss battle on my alt, I had the choice of using Gil or Waver from my main account as the support. In hindsight, I probably should have picked Waver. My main account was the one where I had the luxury of running with Waver + Gil + support Gil, and just breezed through the battle.

Anyway, loved that the top event currency to Mana Prism exchange ratio was a nice 1:1, instead of the Valentines event’s much harsher 10:1 ratio. Now all I have left to do in the event is finishing off skill gems when convenient.

Just finished the 2nd rooftop fight! Hooray

Thank you GJ for posting that guide. It was rly helpful!

I started recently, in december during christmas event, so i didnt see the other events but this one was totally different of what we had so far. While other were pretty much "just fight the strongest opponents u can with event CEs equipped", this one required a lot more planning. I didnt roll much for this event and had very few CEs, actually i got none that gave extra black cat drops and only one that gives extra mineral water drops, so that was extra hard.

I died once in 804 (yes, not in the bosses, but in 804 lol), i went with wrong servants equipping event CEs and the support servant shiki didnt help too.

This event made me view medea lily in a totally different way, she can be rly overpower if used right. In the first rooftop boss, she was healing so much and so fast that the boss had no way to kill anyone even with his NP, and the saber on second rooftop party had to trigger her NP twice to actually kill someone.

Now, when are we going to get some break time? We had saber wars, valentines and now garden of sinners all in a row lol
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on February 18, 2018, 08:59:49 am
We get a bit of a break after this. Then it's on to the Prison Tower, with the creepy shadowdude that popped up here! That's not much of an event, though. Just one quest per day.

Post by: Gamerjunkie on February 20, 2018, 06:43:53 am
https://webview.fate-go.us/2018/0220_cbc2018/

Time: 04:00 UTC, 2/22 to 03:59 UTC, 3/1

I think  this was supposed to be a White Day event originally. Let me try to sort out this mess.

Not a whole lot going on here. Mostly just a gacha event. Trial quest for Amakusa, with 3 stages. Each gives a different reward. The last one gives a summon ticket. The first two give an Archer and a Rider piece (Don't remember the order).

Guess I'll start off with the Servants, then.

Amakusa Shirou (5* Ruler, limited)
AoE Buster NP. Low damage, but clears buffs on enemies BEFORE dealing damage, so useful against enemies that spam dodge/invincibility skills. Also decreases enemy crit chance with Overcharge.
First Skill: Revelation A: Gives crit stars per turn (3-9) for 3 turns.
Second Skill: Baptism Rite B+: Charge own NP for 5 turns (10-20% per turn), reduce NP gauge of one Undead or Demon enemy by 1.
Third Skill: God's Resolution C: Chance (50- 100%) to stun one Servant for a turn.
Cards: AABBQ

Honestly, he's not that great right now, but he will get an Interlude and a Strengthening Quest later that upgrade his NP and third skill. NP gets more damage, third skill gets a Buster Up added to it.

Astolfo (4* Rider, permanent addition)
AoE Quick NP. Ignores any Defense buffs on enemies and grants a 3-hit Evasion to Astolfo.  Gives crit stars with Overcharge.
First Skill: Monstrous Strength C-: Increase attack (8-28%) for 1 turn.
Second Skill: Trap of Argalia D: Chance (60-90%) to stun 1 enemy for 1 turn.
Third Skill: Evaporation of Sanity: 65% chance EACH to gain stars per turn (5-10) for 3 turns, increase own star generation for 3 turns, and increase crit damage for 3 turns.
Cards: ABQQQ

Kinda weird, especially since two of his skills are heavily chance based. We will be getting a CE in the future that will greatly increase buff success chance, but that is not this event.

Young Gil (3* Archer, permanent addition)
AoE Buster NP. Overcharge reduces enemy NP damage, critical damage, and debuff resistance for 1 turn.
First Skill: Charisma A+: Increase party attack (10.5-21%) for 3 turns.
Second Skill: Charming Youth C: Chance (45-75%) to Charm one Humanoid enemy for 1 turn.
Third Skill: Golden Rule A: Increase own NP gen (20-50%) for 3 turns.
Cards: AABBQ

Not much to be said here. Decent budget Archer. Like pretty much all of the 3* Archers.

MORE CRAFT ESSENCES. Side note, we should get an item that allows you to get one event CE of your choice for free.

Kiss Your Hand (5*): All card types up by 10% for equipped Servant.
Teacher and I (5*): Start with 50% NP gauge, increase crit star absorb by 300%.
Versus (5*): Increase Attack by 80% and Defense by 40% against Divine enemies for 3 turns.
Beasts Under the Moon (4*): Increase NP and star gen by 12%, heal 200 HP per turn.
Glass Full Sweet Time (4*): Sure Hit, increase damage dealt by 400, reduce damage taken by 200
Noisy Obsession (4*): Increase crit damage and NP damage by 15%, increase charm success by 12%
Salon de Marie (3*): Evasion (1 hit), increase HP recovered by 5%, increase debuff success by 3%.
Prince of Slayer (3*): Gain 1 star per turn and increase attack against Dragon enemies by 8%.

Personal CE recommendations: Teacher and I is good for Berserkers. I like Beasts Under the Moon for people with low NP gen, since it mitigates that a bit. Glass Full Sweet Time is also solid, along with Kiss Your Hand.

Also, we will be getting NP upgrade interludes for Diarmund, Beowulf, and Medea Lily.

Post by: mikebrand83 on February 20, 2018, 11:57:43 pm
I think pretty much every room with at least one Vengeful Spirit has a random chance of replacing one with a Rapunzel, but it’s fairly low (a little less than 50% even on the 8th floor?).

For completing missions, try to fight bosses with overlapping mission requirements, e.g. Medusa in room 203 would cover Female, Divine, and Rider requirements, Vlad in room 502 would cover Male, Berserker and Evil. Then as you complete some missions, switch bosses for different overlapping requirements as needed.

I used this guide to help:

nobody uses my Servants

Probably because I refuse to level them~ I’d say that Jack DID get a lot of use though, if only compared to all my other guys. Maybe a thousand, fifteen hundred Friend Points total~

But I was well aware I would never reach my true FP potential when I decided to keep Nursery Rhyme in my list rather than Waver~ Playing how I want simply requires some sacrifices for the sake of freedom...

On an unrelated note, the Boy’s Collection gacha has begun! Gil and Astolfo are now available~ As is a certain Shirou for those interested in that kind of thing~

I used both Mike's Jack & Meg's MHX for the Rapunzel battles. I primarily used Mike's Jack due to her being NP2. Also, I managed to get all the ascension mats for Shiki and got her to NP2. Took me around 10 hours of non-stop grinding to get them. I was up til around 1.20am finishing it off.

It'll be 7 quests in total, one released each day. The last one gives a crystallized lore, everything else gives a ticket. There will also be various material drops during the quests themselves, including bones, hearts, talons, lanterns, etc.

Post by: Gamerjunkie on February 24, 2018, 12:43:34 am
Ok we got another thing

http://fate-go.us/event/

Time: March 1, 07:00 to March 8, 03:59 UTC

Prison Tower has arrived! You can only participate this event if you have finished London's story. There is 1/2 AP cost for main story missions now if you haven't yet, I believe.

How this one works.

There are 7 missions in total, all of a higher difficulty than normal grindy events. Think the 8th of Kara no Kyoukai event for an approximation of the challenge level. One mission will be released each day, giving a summon ticket until the final missions, which gives a Crystallized Lore.

We get a single Servant for this event. No new CEs.

Edmond Dantes (5* Avenger)
NP: AoE Quick, does damage (normal effect), reduce enemy defense (3 turns) and apply curse (5 turns) scales with Overcharge.
First skill: Determination of Steel EX: Invincibility Pierce and Attack Up (30-50%) for 1 turn, increase debuff resist for 3 turns
Second skill: Golden Rule A: Increase NP gen (20-50%) for 3 turns
Third skill: Wisdom from Desperation A: Reduce one enemy's NP gauge by 1, remove own debuffs, gain critical stars (10-20)
Cards: QQABB

If you are not already aware, the Avenger class is strong against Ruler and Berserker, and does neutral damage to everyone else. A few more tidbits about Avengers include their abysmally low star absorb weight, absurdly high attack, lower HP, and their class skills. All Avengers have the Avenger skill (duh) which reduces the party's debuff resistance, but increases the Avenger's NP generation when taking damage. They all also have a skill which generates a low percentage of NP per turn. Dante's is 3%, for reference.

Oh right one more thing the only support servant for these missions will be a level 90 Dantes with NP5 until the final mission.

'MERICA! FUCK YEAH!*

New chapter inbound on March 15th, with all the new Servants and CEs it brings!

We got a loooooooot of new people here, so lemme just go over all of those first.

Florence Nightingale (5* Berserker)
NP: Arts, Team Heal, debuff cleanse, enemy NP damage down (50-100%, Overcharge)
First Skill: Nurse of Steel A: Heal one ally (2000-4000)
Second Skill: Human Comprehension A: Increase Attack (30-50%) and Defense (15-25%) against Humanoid enemies for 3 turns
Third Skill: Angel's Cry EX: Increase one ally's Buster performance for 3 turns (30-50%)
Cards: QAABB

Bit of a Berserker oddball, support oriented skills and NP, but good if you can keep her alive.

Medb (5* Rider, Story-locked)
NP: Buster, single target, extra damage against Males and reduce mental debuff resist (both scale with Overcharge)
First Skill: Golden Rule (Body) A: 3-time debuff immunity, heal over 3 turns (500-1000 per turn), charge NP by 10% for 3 turns
Second Skill: Charisma B: Party attack up (9-18%) for 3 turns
Third Skill: Alluring Nightingale C: Chance (50-80%) to Charm one Male enemy for one turn
Cards: QAABB

She's pretty weak right now, but she'll get upgrades to her NP and Charisma in the future that improve her greatly.

Cu Chulainn Alter (5* Berserker, Story-locked) AKA the dinosaur
NP:  Buster, single target, increase Attack and Defense (30-70% each, scales with overcharge), deal damage (in that order)
First Skill: Madness of the Spirits A: Reduce all enemies' Attack (10-20%) and crit chance (30-50%) for 3 turns
Second Skill: Protection from Arrows C: Evasion for 2 attacks, increase defense (7-14%) for 3 turns
Third Skill: Battle Continuation A: Guts 1 time for 5 turns, revive with 1000-2500 HP
Cards: QABBB

Best Berserker we will ever get. At least in terms of survivability. For farming we'll get an abomination later made by someone who can't draw boobs right. Herc with bond CE might have a slight advantage, but he's also a 4* so slightly squishier than Dinosaur here.

Rama (4* Saber)
NP: Buster, single target, extra damage to Demonic enemies (scales with Overcharge). Note: Demonic is a trait. Currently there are no Servants with this trait, though there will be eventually. There are a decent number of mobs with it, though. If anyone wants a full list ask me and I'll put it in a separate post.
First Skill: Warrior's Blessing A: Increase star absorb (300-500%) and crit damage (50-100%) for 1 turn
Second Skill: Charisma B: Party attack up (9-18%) for 3 turns
Third Skill: Curse of Separation A: Guts 1 time for 3 turns, 1000 HP (fixed) on revival. Heal self upon use for 1000-3000 HP.
Cards: QAABB

Let the critmemes begin. He pairs pretty well with Nightingale due to the potential for ridiculous Buster card crit damage. Just add stars!

Li Shuwen (4* Lancer, Story-locked)
NP: Arts, single-target, ignore defense buffs, reduce enemy defense by 20% for 3 turns, chance to Insta-kill (Overcharge)
First Skill: Chinese Martial Arts A++: Ignore Evasion for 1 turn, increase crit damage for 1 turn (50-100%)
Second Skill: Sphere Boundary B: Evasion for 1 turn, increase star absorb for 1 turn (300-500%)
Third Skill: Juezhao B: Ignore Invincibility for 1 turn, increase Arts performance for 1 turn (30-50%)
Cards: QQAAB

Rejoice, for we finally have a not-shit Arts Lancer. Go away Fionn.

Helena Blavatsky (4* Caster)
NP: Arts, AoE, deal damage, reduce defense, crit chance, debuff resist for 3 turns (Overcharge)
First Skill: Magical Tuning C: Party NP charge (10-20%)
Second Skill: Mahatma A: Gain 5 crit stars for 5 turns, chance to increase own NP damage by 50% for 1 turn (60-80%)
Third Skill: Pursuit of the Unknown: Increase all card performances for party for 3 turns (15-20%)
Cards: QAAAB

Good support Caster, like Hans but with more stuff, as befitting for a 4*.

Thomas Edison (4* Caster, Story-locked)
NP: Arts, AoE, deal damage, seal enemy skills and NP for 1 turn, reduce enemy crit chance (Overcharge)
First Skill: Shapeshift C: Increase Defense for 3 turns (16-24%)
Second Skill: Mass Production A: Gain stars for 5 turns (5-10), charge own NP for 5 turns (5-10%)
Third Skill: Concept Improvement A: Increase one ally's NP Overcharge for 1 turn by 2 stages (Essentially ups Overcharge by 200%), increase their star gen for 1 turn (10-30%)
Cards: QAAAB

I... don't know what to say here. He's not great. His second skill is good. His third skill is OK. Uh.

Billy the Kid (3* Archer)
NP: Quick, single target, ignore Evasion for 1 turn, deal damage, reduce enemy crit chance (Overcharge)
First Skill: Marksman A++: Increase crit damage for 1 turn (60-120%)
Second Skill: Quick Draw A+: Charge own NP (30-50%)
Third Skill: Eye of the Mind (False) C: Evasion for 1 turn, increase crit damage (16-32%)
Cards: QQAAB

VERY crit oriented, also the first Servant who can do over 100% crit damage without party support. Another solid addition to the Archer class.

Geronimo (3* Caster, free copy given upon chapter completion)
NP: Arts, AoE, deal damage, reduce enemy crit chance by 20% for 3 turns, heal party and increase party debuff resist (Overcharge)
First Skill: Increase own Buster performance for 1 turn (30-50%)
Second Skill: Increase own Arts performance for 1 turn (30-50%)
Third Skill: Increase own Quick performance for 1 turn (30-50%)
Cards: QAABB

I'm just gonna say it right now, Geronimo is just bad. He MIGHT be better if his skills affected the whole party rather than just himself, but they don't.

Also of note, Karna and Arjuna will be permanently added to all gachas following the chapter release.

As for CEs, those are a mixed bag. Only 3 to be added.

Ideal of the Holy King(5*): Increase party HP by 1000. Stacks with other copies of itself. I believe it works if equipped to a backline Servant.
Record Holder (4* GO AWAY SHINJI): Increase debuff success change by 15%. Good for people like, say... Astolfo.
Beast of Billows (3*): Increase NP damage by 15% if equipped to a Lancer.

*disclaimer i am not actually super hyped for this chapter i just had to make the joke

Also note that Mona Lisa will be leaving the Mana Prism shop soon, so get that if you want it. Next CE will be Personal Training, which increases Master XP gained after battles.

Didn't Mona Lisa leave the shop with the conclusion of KnK? I'd quite like a more offensive Caster since while Medea Lily is great for healing, and Medea is solid for spamming Rule Breaker, just would like a bit more oomph. I should level Halloween Liz...

Nice guide~

And yes, Mona Lisa left. I was watching closely so I could get the new CE right afterwards, but then it didn’t show up, leaving the Mana Prism shop with no CE at all...

Might try and get some copies of that health boost CE. Elvis does love his stalling after all. Not super interested in rolling for Servants right now; Herc is way too close to Bond 10 to put any eggs in Evil Cu’s basket. For Helena, I’ll probably just hope to get her in Illya’s event.

Still, above all else, more story content will be cool~

Just a question - does reducing their debuff resist ALSO decrease their death resist?
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on March 07, 2018, 04:46:47 am
I don't think so. Death resist is its own hidden stat for enemies, where Debuff resist is (I think) a fixed thing across the board modified by skills like Magic Resistance.

You mean...

A total goddess, and the best caster in the game until Merlin comes along~ Skills are able to support, quick to gain NP, and her NP isn't wasted on buffing/debuffing, doing a smooth AoE damage instead.

Not to mention...

So a few weeks ago, there was an unauthorized charge of $267 from my paypal to google. I reported it and got it reversed, but google in turn closed my payment account. They asked for 2 forms of ID, which I provided to them, to reopen it. They rejected the request - apparently unless I pay for something I didn't buy, they're not going to re-open my account.

So... I guess that means no Helena for me. T_T

Maybe I'll commission an artwork of her instead...
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on March 14, 2018, 09:24:07 am
Can you make a new google account and use that instead? Pretty ridiculous that they'd do that over an unauthorised transaction.

Well, they froze your account on no wrongdoing of your own unless you paid them money. Sounds like they're demanding a ransom to me.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Meliran on March 14, 2018, 04:02:37 pm
Yeah. Well, I sent them another note, we'll see what the resolution is. The thing is - the expected amount of rolls to get Helena is 95, or 285 quartz - $160 worth or so. So combine that with the ransom it's $420. And the thing about expected value is it's only a 63% probability of getting what you want. So to spend $420 on Helena is one thing, to spend $420 on her and have a 37% chance of coming away with nothing...

I'll pass. Might be leaving the game soon in this case.

I didnt watch heavens feel movie but i hope that at least this one is still good - i mean, everything storywise was done alredy, they just have to animate it. They cant screw this one up right?

Hey so it looks like we're getting Jalter event i hope this isn't just an early april fool's joke

http://fate-go.us/event/

Event time: April 4th (presumably) 04:00 UTC to  April 14th, 00:59 UTC (If I converted right)

New Servant

Jeanne Alter (obviously)
5* Avenger
Single target Buster NP: Deals damage, blocks next enemy buff from taking effect. Inflict Curse damage for 5 turns (500-2500, Overcharge)
First Skill: Self Modification EX: Increase crit damage (20-50%) and star absorb (400-800%) for 3 turns
Second Skill: Dragon Witch EX: Increase attack (10-20%) for all allies for 3 turns. Double attack bonus on allies with Dragon trait (additional 10-20%).
Third Skill: Ephemeral Dream A: Invincibility for 1 turn, Buster Up (30-50%) for 1 turn, take 1000 damage on activation. Cannot be killed by the loss of HP.

And so begins the Buster critmeme meta. If you get her congratulations you won the game. Basically. Have fun with those skill mats tho.

More lottery yaaaaaaaaay

Two lotteries. One uses white page things. The other uses black ones. Daily quests give lots of one kind of page, but you can only pick one to do.

Relevant CEs:

Holy Maiden Leading Chaldea: 5*, can be gotten from black page lottery, boosts appearance of white page drop enemies. Increase Buster by 10%, gain 3 stars per turn.
Empieta: 5*, As above, but vice versa. Increase Buster by 10%, charge all party NP gauge by 15% on death.
School of Chaldea: Boosts drops of both types of pages by 2. Start with 30% NP, increase received Healing by 20%. Bought from event shop.

Gacha CEs:

Gentle Affection, 4*: Increase Healing power (AKA Healing DONE, not received) by 15%. Mona Lisa drops increase by 1.
Talent - Snake 4*: Arts up by 30% for 3 turns. Self Portrait drops increase by 1.
Art of Death 4*: Increase attack against Humanoid enemies by 25%. Vetruvian Man drops increase by 1.

ok have fun i'll just cry about not being able to do this and the new story chapter in jp at the same time
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Meliran on March 31, 2018, 09:56:40 pm
Honestly, the lottery isn't that great. There's like 2 of each of mats - horseshoes, crystals, pages, etc - some apples, and the grand prize is an event CE. Not like the Christmas one where you could get Santa.

The big things are the shops. 20 each of all the new gold mats - horns, tallows, tears, and roots, along with hearts, feathers, lanterns, and babies. And the biggest thing of all - completing the main quest rewards a Holy Grail.

For me, I'm going for Fous, Tallows, and Feathers. XP cards would be nice too - and QP~

I have a lunatic on my FL with a NP5, fully grailed to level 100 Jalter (edit: also with skills at 10/10/10). Madness.

Meanwhile, I'm happy with getting Jalter to NP2 after using a little over 400 quartz, with a bonus Tamamo (to get her to NP3) as cherry on top. ;D

Thanks to the two Quartz I got as login bonus, I had enough for a single roll! Suddenly, glory rainbow orbs! Jeanne Alter? Wait no that’s a Rider. Not sure which Rider I’d hope for since I don’t really need more- oh a second Marie!

...Elvis was actually entirely okay with this development. She is quite precious in her own way~

On an unrelated note lottery is great. So much exp~ And everything else. Just waiting for the silver item day so I can farm enough for about a billion more Claws of Chaos. Gonna get Jack to 90 in no time~

Wonder if I could get enough exp cards to take her to 100...

So Helena is now level 8 in Magical Tuning, 7 in Mahatma, and 10 in Pursuit of the Unknown. I need 12 more void's dust for Mahatma to get to level 8 (Next event gives 15, so no issue), and then I'll be at 2/18 Black Beast Greases for the last 2 skills to level to 9, and 15/32 feathers.

The next event gives 10 Black Beast Greases and 15 feathers, which'll put me at 12/18 and 30/32.

So, my question~

Do I try to get the last 6 Black Beast Greases at the assassin node, which drops it at 240 AP/drop but also gives portraits I can use to buy stuff like red saber gems for Altera (since I can like never do the Sunday quests)? Or do I do Lubbok for 120 AP/drop but pretty much nothing else?

This event has been good~

Jack went from 70 to 100.
Nursery Rhyme went from 70 to 90.
Heracles has reached Bond 10 and is now immortal.

Elvis no longer has any grails. He is okay with this.

Next to complete America, and begin to help Nursery Rhyme match Jack's newfound heights~

Also Saber's Bond Level went up and the CE I got with the Quartz helped me farm the exact thing I was working on at that moment, she's such a nice king.

Fate/Accel Zero Order Advance Campaign (https://webview.fate-go.us/iframe/2018/0411_zeroadvcp/) incoming.

Main point is that Fate/Zero related characters are on "rate up", so it's a good time to try your luck if you've been after Gil, who also has a new interlude to boost his NP power.

Even for those of us who are not planning to roll anything in the advance campaign, it also brings along the Royal Brand Mystic Code (great for Quick and/or Crit servants). And most importantly, DOUBLE chance of triggering Super (x2) and Great (x3) success when levelling up servants and CEs.


So yeah, unless you really need to level up servants or CEs now to effectively farm the Da Vinci event, stockpile those Gold EXP cards until tomorrow.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Meliran on April 11, 2018, 12:38:13 pm
As for the event itself:

The event starts on the 19th, and we are getting it for a really long time as it goes to the 10th of May - 3 full weeks. It is naturally a huge campaign like KnK/Saber Wars, not a tiny one like Valentines or the present one.

Here's how it works:

Main Quest
The main quest contains 18 acts and an act EX. Like the KnK even, these main quests will become available by doing missions. Act 18 rewards the player with a new servant - Irisviel, a decent caster.

Missions
Like the KnK event, we have goals - missions. For instance, "Defeat 5 Hassan (Enemy)" which'll give 5 void dust as a reward and unlocks a free quest.

Free Quests
There are a bunch of free quests to grind, and each one has 5 levels to them - D, C, B, A, and EX. D and C will be the only ones available at the start. The do B and A, you need an event currency - of which there are 4. We have Sea Demon's foots, golden chalices, assassin's masks, and magic ore fragments. EX requires clearing act 18 of the main quest - which is near the end of the grind in the first place. The EX quests unlock the Crystal Balls - Irisviel's ascension item.

Event currency
There are 3 ways to get this event currency. 10 of each are bought with "insignias" - more on that later. You also get 6 of the currency through specific missions, and 4 of the currency by doing main quests. Obtaining these unlocks B and A level events - B requires anywhere from 4 to 13 of an item, A anywhere from 14 to 17.

Insignias
Killing a mob will reward you with its insignias. So lancer drops lancer insignias, much like Valentines day. There are 3 ways to boost these. First, you can bring in an event servant - which is any form of Gil, Hassan, Lancelot, Alexander, Waver, Diarmuid, and Gille de Rais. Only vanilla Artoria Pendragon will count. There is also an Emiya (Assassin) who will count in this event. Using these classes in a class advantage situation (IE, Artoria vs. Lancers) boosts drops by 3. Lancelot will boost Berserker insignias by 3, and no others. There is also the FP servant, Angra Mainyu, who will boost drops of all classes by 3, if you're lucky enough to get him.

With Rider/Caster/Assassin/Berserker insignias you can buy the "Final Destination" craft essence, which boosts drops by 2 for all classes. You will get one of these through missions as well.

For those paying you can also get craft essences through the summoning pool to increase drops of the equipped classes by 1/2/3, but these don't seem as useful as the Final Destinations.

And of course, there are other goodies in the currency shops - Fous, Experience Cards, Mana Prisms, Eternal Wheels, Horns, Pages, Spirit Roots, Octuplet Crystals, Dragon Scales, and all classes monuments and QP.

Bonus Quests
After clearing the last main mission - Act EX - and collecting 20 of each event currency, you will gain access to 4 new quests. Each one has 3 stages only requiring completion of the last stage to do. Clearing all 3 will reward another Irisviel to allow you to NP5 her.

When you clear those, you should have all missions done. You can then do the last bonus quest which will have you facing the final boss. Reward is 5 Black Beast Greases (which for me is the jackpot~)

Conclusion
For me, I'm planning on going ham on this event. It's a huge fun event, and honestly it'll be a while until we get one like this again. In Japan after this there was a 2 week break until Ibaraki Douji, which is really just one quest done as a raid. After that is Journey to the West which is sorta like the current campaign. Then we have 2 weeks until Onigashima, which is a bit more complicated. Then Camelot, and then finally, the summer event - which to me is the next huge event. ^^

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on April 12, 2018, 05:27:46 am
Well, Meli's summed up the event pretty well so I guess I'll just do Servants and CEs.

5* Limited Rider: Iskandar
AoE Buster NP, reduces enemy defense with Overcharge
Charisma A: Party Attack Up (10-20%) for 3 turns
Tactics B: Increase party NP damage (9-18%) for one turn
Lightning Conqueror EX: Self Buster up (30-50%) and star generation up by 50% for 1 turn
Cards: QAABB

Like Medb, his NP hits like a wet noodle right now. Will be upgraded with Interlude eventually.

4* Caster (Welfare): Irisviel
Arts NP, Heal Party, party gains Guts status for 3 turns (Guts Heal scales with overcharge)
Resolution of Commitment: Increase healing done by her for 1 turn
Infant of Nature: Invincible for 1 turn, NP gen up for 3 turns
Magic Medicine: Heal one ally

Alas, poor Irisviel suffers from really shit NP generation. I wish I had more occasion to use her, but when I do, she pulls her weight and more. Hell, the last set of battles for Part 1 I was able to turtle through with a combination of Iri's healing/Guts, Jeanne's invincibility, and [redacted]'s stupidly powerful NP.

4* Assassin (Permanent): Emiya (actually Kiritsugu)
Single Target Arts NP, does damage, reduces enemy NP gauge by 1, decrease enemy crit chance for 3 turns (Overcharge)
Magecraft B: Arts up for 1 turn (24-40%)
Affection of the Holy Grail A+: Invincibility pierce and crit damage up (30-50%) for 3 turns, decrease party (except self) debuff resist for 3 turns
Scapegoat B: Taunt on one ally for one turn, gain crit stars (5-15)
Cards: QQAAB

Kiritsugu is one of my favorite Assassins to use, honestly. His biggest problem is that his NP gain is really terrible, but he makes up for it by generating lots of crit stars and doing lots of crit damage. Both of which his passive skills help with. He doesn't give as many stars as, say, Jack, but it's still a good amount. Gets his own NP upgrade later on.

3* Assassin (Permanent): Hundred Face Hassan
Single Target Arts NP, does damage, reduce enemy crit chance for 3 turns
Library of Stored Information: Increase NP and crit star generation for 3 turns
Expert of Many Specializations: Chance to increase Quick, Arts, and Buster damage by 30% for 3 turns (individual per card type; 60-80% chance), grant Evade for 1 turn
Battle Retreat: Heal (2000-4000 HP), remove all other buffs from self
Cards: QQAAB

I haven't actually played around with HFH myself, but just looking at her (their?) kit, I'd say HFH is a solid choice of an Assassin. Just be careful using that heal. Use that one before any other skills. Also gets an NP Interlude at some point.

0* Avenger (Permanent, FP gacha only): Angra Mainyu
AoE (I guess?) Arts NP. Heals self, adds "wait" status. At end of next turn (or start, just some time in the next turn), deal damage to all enemies based on damage taken during that turn (2x at NP1, 3x at NP5). Note: If he has Guts status active and dies from damage, he will still deal the damage. Have done this myself for a specific Nerofest challenge battle. It's weird.

Tawrich, Left Fang Grinder: Reduce one enemy's crit chance for 3 turns
Zarich, Right Fang Grinder: Reduce one enemy's NP gauge by 1, reduce their attack for 3 turns
Murderous Intent: Increase Quick for 5 turns but in a weird way. Adds a status that kills him after 5 turns. This can trigger Guts status. Also can be removed by enemies using buff removal skills on him.

The Quick Up skill works really oddly. It increases the actual Quick buff by an amount determined by the skill level over each of the 5 turns. For example, it starts off at 20%. This means that the turn he uses it, he gains 20% Quick up. The next turn, he has 40%, after that 60%, and so on. Maxes out at 40% per turn, for a whopping 200% buff after 5 turns. Later he gets an interlude (but can only be done at Bond 10) that adds a Guts status to this skill so he doesn't die. Also it can apparently stack with other Guts buffs, but this one gets used first. I don't know, my Angra on JP is only at Bond 7.

On that note, his Bond CE will be useful in a few story chapters, so if you ARE able to use some sort of eldrich luck (Elvis I see you over there) to get him, put him in your party. Also, even though he's a 0* Servant, he gives 2 Quartz per bond level past 6, much like a 4* would.

I'm not entirely sure when Anger Management is added to the FP gacha, since he never gets announced like the rest of the Servants. I think he'll be available once the event starts, but don't count on getting him. He's rarer than a goddamn 5*. He's also kind of a joke character, but hey, he's an Avenger!

Final Destination: 5*
Start with 30% NP, gain 3 crit stars per turn

Before Awakening: 5*
Quick, Arts, Buster, and Defense all increased

Volumen Hydrargyrum: 5*
Invincible for 3 attacks, +200 flat damage on all attacks made

Young Maiden Ignorant of Love: 4*
Quick Up, gain 4% NP charge per turn

Self Geass Scroll: 3*
Increase Stun success rate

Penis Burrowing Worms: 3*
XP fodder.

All of these sans penis worms increase Insignia drops for the class of the Servant it is equipped on for this event.


Sorta minor spoilerly things for the far future
On a side note I finished the first story chapter of Part 2 in JP today, read some of the translated stuff, and now feel kinda dead inside. I'm a monster. And now I can't summon cute ice Caster because then I'd feel like NTR trash.

Did a couple ten rolls on the Gil/Saber banner, got Lancelot! He’s basically the only launch 4* I wanted but never got, so I’m happy with that. Also got a second Kaleidoscope! Which means, since I maxed Helena’s first skill, I MIGHT be able to set things up so I can clear hands in three turns. Maybe.

Also, so glad they introduced the double success rates DURING the lottery event. Leveled Jeanne Alter all the way to 60, which is where she’s staying until I can ascend her again. Then I leveled Nobu and Shiki to seventy; I think my end goal will be getting everyone there so I don’t need to rush it once Mash reaches that point. Santa Saber hit sixty-nine, but then Lancelot showed up, so my exp is going to him for now~

This lottery really has been pretty great. Only thing I have left to do after leveling is hoping for a third Avenger~ Gotta collect them all!

Going from 90-100 takes 242 4* Experience all cards
Got that many 4* EXP card again after emptying out the lottery, and have 6 grails in stock (though a little short of QP), so I'm a little tempted to shoot for level 100 with either Saber Bride or Jalter.


... But in the end, I think I'll hold out a bit longer for Raikou. :o

Post by: Elvis Strunk on April 14, 2018, 10:20:48 am
So I couldn’t sleep. Decided to get some Quartz (this is not a valid solution to insomnia) and rolled the gacha, because Saber.

Well Saber is NP5 now.

That’s an entire journey, complete. Funny thing is, she was only on rateup two of the times I got her. The other times were a random story single pull, on Jack’s banner, and on Jeanne Alter’s banner. Now, I can only imagine the amount of unregistered spirit origins she’ll get me the next fifty times she shows up.

Upgraded her NP via interlude a few hours ago as well. I think I want to max her first two skills at least, and get her to 90 before the year’s out. It’s a shame she takes so many Claws of Chaos, since they seem to be the most in-demand item for all my Servants. Poor Cu has been stuck at 7/7/7 for so long...

All this also vaguely makes me consider grailing her to 100. She’s the reason I started playing, and she’s showed up so many times, and so easily... the only issue is, not enough grails for her alongside everyone else I wanna take to max. Well, I’ll have to keep considering it as time goes on.

I know I’m a little late, but, I finally completed the America story chapter. Got the grail, took Nursery Rhyme to 92. As for my impressions, I’ll say I think this was probably my favorite story chapter so far. I enjoyed a lot of the characters, from Helena, to Edison, to Elisabeth Bathory and Nightingale.

Liz especially since I realized that, aside from the main cast, she’s pretty much the one who’s been around the longest, always showing up when we need help. I don’t know how much more she’ll appear in the plot moving forward, but I’ll be looking forward to it. She might be my favorite of the Lancers I have currently, even.

All that said, the real standout this chapter, for me, was Rama. I loved that guy. If he ever shows up in my rolls, I think he’ll be the first non-Saber Saber that I raise. His personality was cool, alongside his abilities in combat, and his relationship with Sita- who was quite pretty, art-wise, I must admit.

I also managed to summon Nighingale from a random ten roll in the story gacha, pretty much right before I got around to continuing America, and, while she’s certainly not the absolute best Servant, I became more happy that she showed up as I progressed further. Plus, I got to use her alongside Rama a lot that way, instead of having to pick one, which made immersion quite a bit better.

I will close off with saying, ending the chapter that way was mean! I won’t get into any more spoilers than I already have, in case anybody exists that’s even slower at stuff than I am, but I guess all I can say is, I’m now left wondering what the heck is going on! I’m sure everything will be all right... hopefully.

Also, this time around, it felt really weird and disconnected to receive the specific 3* for completing this chapter. Getting Jekyll in London made perfect sense, though admittedly even in Okeanos I felt like Euryale fit better than David, just for sheer impact and importance to the story. I guess it’s a rather minor issue to begin with, so it’s not exactly something that’ll bother me, though~

Not that it'd matter much to those of us who have already been playing the game for a while through one method or another, but it looks like English version of Fate/Grand Order is now officially available in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store for Australia, as well as several other countries falling under the South East Asia umbrella ("Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines").

It's still using the same US server as far as I can tell, but now you can use Australian iTunes and Play Store gift cards in their respective Australia region stores... Though you may not want to, since apparently the AU$ asking price for quartz can be a lot worse than buying them with US$.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on April 19, 2018, 10:59:34 am
I had Google Play store credit from Christmas so I made sure to use it. But yeah, the price for the top purchase in AUD is $129.99, and the USD price is $79.99. Not accounting for exchange rate, back in January it would have cost AUD$105.25. That's more than currency conversion. After I spend all my Google Play credit I'll probably switch back to the US store for a better deal. Although now I can ask friends to give me SQ as a present now.

EDIT: Just realised Meliran was given credit in the walkthrough for doing the step by step part. Wow. Congrats, you're a nerd~

I think this event is the only one since the game’s launch where I have zero temptation to roll the gacha for CEs, since the gacha CEs doesn’t synergise with event servant drop boosts, and basically only the event shop “His Rightful Place” CE is worth a damn.

The only servant that actually gets synergistic benefits from the gacha CEs is Lancelot, where he gets +3 event servant drop bonus against Berserkers and +2/+3 drops against his own class (Berserker).

For everybody else (besides maybe the Angry Manju) equipping gacha CEs is pretty much a total waste of time, since if I wanted Saber Seals I’ll put Gil in my party, and giving him a gacha CE would only boost Archer Seal drops, and he’s still stuck on +3 Saber Seals (so I might as well just equip him with a good NP jumpstart CE instead).
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on April 21, 2018, 02:05:29 am
I did roll twice and got a little bit of the Event CEs and a second Tamacat - no Broskander sadly, but a friend of mine did on two rolls - and yeah, the event CEs are rough in that you have to match Servant type instead of counter it. It does my head in.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Elvis Strunk on April 21, 2018, 03:22:52 am
Not much of an argument for the gacha CEs, but Mash gives a bonus to everything, so giving her one would be the likely best use of it. Also, Avengers boost all Cavalry Class drops, and Rulers boost all Knight Class drops. So that's a limited amount of utility, anyway. Though, I might like to get that three hit invincibility thing just for it's own uses, I otherwise have no real temptation to roll. All I wanted from this release was Angra Mainyu, who didn't show up~

Iskandar is totally badass and I wouldn't complain at all if I got him, though.

Haven't actually rolled more than a couple tickets so far, ignoring the 1.4 million friend points.

And mash/ruler/aveger gives extra bonus? It doesnt appear to me

Post by: Meliran on April 22, 2018, 12:03:23 am
Yeah, I noticed that too.

Anyways, way it works...

Outside of Angry Man, the Shielder/Ruler/Avenger servants do not give bonus drops by simply being in your party. However, if you equip them with a class drop CE, they will boost drops. So like a Mash with a Self Geass Scroll CE will increase drops of all tokens by +1. Rulers boost drops of Sabers/Lancers/Archers if they have an event CE equipped, and Avengers with a CE will boost drops of Zerkers/Riders/Assassins/Casters.

Sadly, no joy on getting Waver (or additional copies thereof) for either my alt or main accounts. My alt account at least got Kerry and the Volumen CE using only 10 tickets and 30 or so quartz, my main only got Before Awakening and a wasted copy of Martha (already have her on NP5) in exchange for 10 tickets and 145 quartz.

Oh well, I might give it another swing next week using the monthly mana prism exchange tickets, but otherwise it’s buckle down until July(?) for Raikou.

P.S.
Iri at NP5, all missions cleared and event shop cleared out on both accounts. 8)

Rank EX quests give them as their completion bonuses - namely Residential District, Wharf, Fuyuki Church, and Homurahara Academy.

You get additional copies of Irisviel in bonus quests in Wharf, Fuyuki Bridge, Tohsaka Residence, and Eizenbern Castle when you clear Act EX and have 18/19/20 of each unlock item (there's 3 stages to each quest, stage 1 requires 18 of 1 item, stage 2 19, stage 3 20.)

Discovered something interesting today. On a banner, if you hit "summon info" it gives the percentage chance of summoning each card. Now, it's always given the 1/4/3/12/40/40 info, but now it also gives the percentage of summoning any specific card. For instance, the odds of summoning Emiya (Assassin) in the pickup banner is 1.5%.

Ooh, it is? Yay~ I thought we had 2 weeks.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Scathatch from the summer event better? Like, here's my math:

Douji:
Attack: 11993
Skill 1 (Level 4): 13% defense reduction to enemy (15% increase to damage)
Skill 2 (Level 4): 13% increase to damage, 23% increase to NP damage
NP (NP1): 450%
Total: 86,261, plus 1000 damage for 5 turns. Also has a seal skill for a turn and a bunch of debuffs for attack, defense, crit chance, etc.
Other Skills: Guts, Low Charm Chance on skill 1.

Scathatch:
Attack: 9049
Skill 3 (Level 4): 36% increase to quick performance
NP (NP5): 1000%
Total: 123,036 (Plus instant kill chance)
Other skills: Targetable Heal/Damage Reduction, Crit Damage steroid (36% bonus)

Am I missing something?
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on May 09, 2018, 08:19:14 pm
Literally all of the debuffs Shuten applies is what makes her great. Also she's an Arts Assassin, and I'm gonna be honest, Scathach's NP gain? Not that great. Shuten's more geared towards support stuff, and she's very good at what she does. Scathach... isn't, and her damage output also isn't that great. Compared to any other Assassin.

Iunno. I don't really care. Maybe I'll roll. If I have the quartz.

That's one thing I never get about this game. When I search for supports, everyone puts the same thing. Like, everyone for caster has a waver because "he's the best." And on their riders they have mona lisas for the QP daily. But I find if you have something unique - like a Tamamo when I need arts boosts, or a Helena when I need damage - I'll go to you like 10 times in a row. Seems more efficient that way.

Hehe, yeah. That's where my friend requests go to. For instance, when I fought Cu Alter, I was searching for a Tamamo, and when I found one I requested them.

It was even worse during the F/Zero even because Waver was a bonus servant. Q_Q

Oh well. Nowadays, waiting on Douji and getting some XP~ I got a little spreadsheet at home of the servants I want to get up, so wondering how many I can:

By priority:
1. Lancer Alter - Needs Douji to get 5 feathers to complete ascensions. 183 XP cards to go 60->80
2. Tesla - 56 XP cards to go 75->80. Will need Douji to get 5 lanterns to complete ascensions. Then need 134 XP cards to go 80->90
3. Umu - 105 XP cards to go 70->80
4. Saber Lily - 105 XP cards to go 70->80
5. Iri - 183 XP cards to go 60->80.

So I guess I'll be able to complete Tesla's 80, all of Umu, and most of Saber Lily - quite possibly all of Saber Lily if I hit super successes?

What's the best way to take down 6Mil Ibaraki? I'm all fine with the 1mil one - taking a friend's Waver really helps - but is there a good way to deal with the top version?

So far the closest I've gotten was with my Waver + MHX + Elvis's Jack + Helena/Euryale/Mash support. MHX and Jack had MLB'd Ushi's and I had 3 carps equipped. That got her down to 1.2m.

One combo I've heard work this early are JAlter/Hans/Support Waver, and swap Hans for your own Waver to get crit stars for Jeanne using your mystic code. I'm thinking Helena probably works the same way in this as Hans does, providing offensive support before getting swapped out, though Hans also give health. Then one swapped you buff everyone and everything, casting 2 of the waver NPs, and giving Jeanne all the crit damage buffs. Then she NP chains, which should get it down to 1m?

The other combo I hear working is Orion, Tamamo no Mae, and Waver. How, I have no idea.

Honestly, not too impressed with this event. I came in with the goal of 5 bones, 25 dusts, 20 claws, 15 hearts, 5 phoenix feathers, the XP cards, and 45m QP. If I lower the QP goal to 35m and just run doors 10 times instead, I can just do this with 65m more damage points - 5m on Friday/Satureday, 5m on Wednesday, 20m next Thursday, and 15m between next Friday and the end of the event, plus 20m anywhere random.

When you get charmed by the ASMR loli into dolphining some multi rolls to get her to NP2.

And get Sumanai, Carmilla, Rama 1/2, Sumanai again, and... Jeanne? Eh, guess I don't really have much grounds for complaints after the last one, especially with plenty of event gacha CEs.

EDIT:
(Still would have liked to get Shuten to NP2, though.)


EDIT:
After 6 waste BPs, finally managed to nail the banana oni with a Gay Bulge Alternative to the face before she wipes out my party. Think I’ll stick to the 2 BP version until I pick up at least another Golden Carp CE.

And barely 10 minutes later, I tried the 3 BP one again with 2 Scath with limit broken Ushi CEs. And managed to make it work. Whew.

But anyways, I decided before I go sleep I want ASMR loli to NP2 (especially becuase she's limited) to go on a mini whaling session.

Took over 300 quartz, but I got there, along with getting Altera to NP3, and another handul of event CEs. Semi-druken tiredness as catalyst is Good Civilization. Banzai!

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Elvis Strunk on May 19, 2018, 01:05:32 am
I was kinda worried about this event before it started, wondering if I could take it on.

I can~

Have done the 2BP mission since the start, planning to get all of the gourd items before moving to the 3BP one, where I just plan to ignore the hands and slay Ibaraki. I did test out the 3BP mission once, right after I got my fourth carp CE. With Jack and some support, I obliterated all six million health with little difficulty, though Jack was slain right before the end of the fight. Nursery Rhyme came in and took the last, like, four thousand health.

So, I rolled my tickets- I believe there were about six of them- and then did two ten rolls. Shuten showed up in the first ten roll, and one copy of the 5* CE came in the second. I also managed to get a second copy of Elisabeth within the last few days. I wasn't really planning around rolling Shuten, but I realized I accidentally saved up enough stuff to take her first two skills to seven, and to max ascend her... without cutting into any of my savings for Jeanne Lily. Gonna see how far I can push towards max level this event. She's also been pretty fun to use whenever I've thrown her at something and her voice and artwork are something I very much appreciate, she is so cute.

I'm glad Jack has been able to help people out; she's been my mainstay throughout the event, and I plan to keep using her the entire time. Watching her crits deal such massive damage is really pleasing~ Slightly worried about the Caster fight, since I haven't done it yet, but I believe she'll be able to hold her own against the weaker enemies, and against Ibaraki nothing changes from before. Won't be doing the 3BP version of this quest, however, though I'm not exactly close to done with gourd farming yet anyway.

And yes, limit broken carp Waver is truly a godsend~ Gonna keep using only him right up until I get done with gourds, and switch to 3BP.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Elvis Strunk on May 20, 2018, 09:12:41 pm
Shuten has reached level 90. Saber's skills are at 10/10/10. Got the last carp CE I need to limit break it and lose no damage. Cleared the very last of what I wanted from the shop.

Today has been productive.

Anyhow, I put the MLB carp with Waver. He's level 70, but I'll work on getting him to 80 if anybody wants to use him. I can also put the CE on someone else if requested; not terribly concerned with my support list as long as Jack and Nursery Rhyme are on it.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on May 21, 2018, 05:05:25 am
Talking about Scathach, Gae Borg Alternative's guaranteed Stun has made her my preferred 3 BP Ibaraki slayer, with the Waver/Scath/Waver combo.

In a typical run, I can alternate between Waver and Scath's NP so Ibaraki only ever gets to fire her NP once (with Scath protected from that using her evade). In the best case, Ibaraki doesn't even get that chance before she loses all 6 million HP.


EDIT:
Currently at 190 million damage points on my main account, while at a much more sedate 52 million on my secondary account.

Should still be possible to do the 3 BP run fairly reliably at least once or twice a day if you have Jack, who I believe you have?

My alt account has been running Iri/Jack/Waver, at better than 50% success rate even with only Mash and Cu as my damage sponges (as painful as it is when I get a party wipe with only 100k to 200k HP left). I have raised Georgios over the last couple of days as an additional damage sponge, but I haven't really had a good chance to test him out in practice yet (Rider vs Assassins = pain).
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on May 21, 2018, 08:12:39 am
Alas, I cannot reliably do the 3 BP, considering I lack any sort of strong single target unit. Should probably look at my friend list for those, really.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on May 21, 2018, 03:53:52 pm
Somebody pulling off the 3BP run without Waver at all. Very impressive stuff, even if it's quite apparent that it's heavily dependent on lucky RNG:

I can't do the 3 BP at all yet. Maybe if I can get a carp to drop I can do it? But my best run so far has been Waver + MHX + Jack support with Helena, Euryale, and Mash in the backlines with 3 carps, 2 ushis, and an event CE. That got it down to 1m, but I need mooooore~

Shame my Waver + JAlter + Waver doesn't work like it does for others because they're all NP1 and my Waver/Jalter have low skill levels.

I did try the 3 one recently and I almost succeeded in killing her, but a few unlucky attacks and status downs led to a wipe. I think if I'd remembered to use a command seal to heal I could have done it. But you can't back out of the card select in English yet.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Elvis Strunk on May 22, 2018, 05:36:36 am
Actually, anytime before the end of the turn, you can close the game, reopen it, and resume the game- it'll take you to before you clicked the battle button. This allows you to use skills and command seals you missed, and the like.

A bit more bothersome than just being able to click 'back, but it basically allows for the same thing.

So I think I'm gonna start saving up for the summer banner~ Here's what I figure:

8 weeks = 48 quartz + 8 summon tickets
2 months = 10 summon tickets
Douji (Remaining) = 10 quartz + 2 summon tickets
3m DL campaign (if we get what Japan got) = 21 quartz + 1 summon ticket
1 year anniversary (if we get what Japan got) = 30 quartz + 10 summon tickets
Journey West = 7 quartz
Onigashima = 14 quartz + 17 summon ticket
Camelot = 16 quartz
200 logins = 20 quartz

They also got 10 quartz for 300 followers, dunno if that's happening here.

So that is 166 quartz and 48 summon tickets, enough for 96 summons. That's a 51.5% chance of getting Tamamo, and a 64.4% chance of getting Kiyo (Lancer), Bonny/Read (Archer), or Mordred (Rider), each. (97.9% chance of getting any 4* or 5* on rate up)

Huh, fair enough. Not enough time to do Camelot~!

Well, in Japan Camelot came out on July 25, the summer event came out on August 11. They had 17 days to do it, which comes out to 4,896 AP if never capped, 2,210 if you only play with a 130 AP cap once a day. Camelot requires 1,622 AP to do (For comparison, US required 1217 AP to do, so Camelot is 33% bigger than US), so it was enough time for them. NA gave us 19 days for E Plurus Unum, Japan gave 12. So maybe they'll be giving us more time? I dunno.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Meliran on May 26, 2018, 12:59:05 am
Yep, May 31st for Journey to the West.

Here's how it works:

You start at mission 0 of the main quest.

To get to mission 1, you need talismans, which you can collect via bonus quests (1 per day), or free quests (unlimited). At the start, only the beginner free quest will be available.

Complete free quests and bonus quests to get talismans which unlock more story quest which in turn unlock more free quests. The free quests give drops of 3 items to buy stuff with in the shop.

Once you finish the main quest (Requires 1,285 talismans), and I think once the first week of the event is over (not sure if it's time gated or not), 4 more free quests will become available. These drop lotus flowers - the final shop - and these orb thingies. The orbs can be used to do more bonus quests that drop more flowers, along with the final quest that gives the lore.

Honestly, it doesn't look like too exciting of an event. But anything has to be better than bullying the banana 150 times.

Not going to roll in the Journey to the West banner, but Xuanzang has a damned awesome looking NP (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-_ijfscuKE).

As for the current event: On my main account I've finished all missions, done over 360 million HP damage to the jaundiced anorexic oni in total, and completely emptied out the event shop. I just wish that the exchange rate for QP was better than 10,000 QP per 3 gourd.

EDIT:
Used up every rice ball, and ended up at 412 million damage points (while farming 1 and 2 BP), but I finally got two limit broken Golden Carp CEs!

Post by: Meliran on June 02, 2018, 11:08:55 am
OK, found the drop rates I needed. For part 2 of this event, starting 6/6, here's the general guide:

1. Do the nodes in order until you get to the Bull Demon king node. Farm this node for 100 orbs (4 runs, you can probably lower it to 3 if you can get someone on your friend list with this Nightingale CE), and then run the 100 dragon orb cost node.
2. Repeat this step until you've done all the nodes. Do NOT buy the Divine Princess of the Storm CE, despite conventional wisdom. If one drops, or you have someone on your friends list with it, use it.
3. When all nodes are unlocked, farm the Atalante node with Ox-Demon kings on your servants and a friend with that. Most will advise against this, but this gives 257 flowers per run with 0 event servants, and 7 dragon orbs. This is effectively 290 flowers per run, versus the Ox Demon King one which is 241. Plus, it takes longer.
4. Run the 100 Dragon Orb quest when you can.

The only reason to do orb farm -> bonus quests repeatables is if you want their mat drops. It's apparently a very high rate, like 75% on claws of chaos in the 130 orb node. If you want this, then your goal is to buy out the princess of the storm CEs instead, and farm the ox demon king node for orbs, and the bonus quest of your choice for mats.

Comparing Japan to US:

Quartz/Tickets: Japan got 21 quartz for this and a summon ticket. We get 15 quartz. NERF
Great Success Rate: Same for both, 2x success
Login Streak Change: Same for both
Da Vinci Shot: Japan got 6m QP, 60k FP, 6 of each apple, and 6 4* exp cards. We get 3. NERF
1/2 AP Free Quests: Japan got these, we didn't. NERF
Scathatch Rate up: Same for both
Strengthening Quests: Same for both, Japan just had it as a separate event.
Free Tutorial Summon: NA gets it, Japan did not. BUFF

So 3 nerfs to 1 buff. Kinda disappointed. That said, only one I really care about is the 6 less quartz and no summon ticket.

Still, free tutorial summon. Who to choose~~~ Kinda tempted to go with Stheno to make her NP5, but Marie is cute so she might be nice to NP2, though she's just another AoE rider. Herc is the strongest and best addition to my team... but he's ugly. NP3 Liz? NP2 Camilla? The questions!

But, none of this matters. What does matter?

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Elvis Strunk on June 05, 2018, 04:41:37 pm
Imma up the NP level of either Marie, Archer, or Heracles. Probably Heracles, since of the three he's the one that runs off of pure damage. I also don't use Archer as much as I should, but balancing between him, Gil, and Nobu is haaard. Also Marie is stalltankawesomeness, but upping her NP isn't really required for that, and she's already at NP2. If only I could choose Nursery Rhyme.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on June 05, 2018, 11:02:40 pm
I thought we were getting the 1/2 AP stuff? Also, I'd think a guaranteed 4*, even a tutorial one, is a bigger buff than the SQ and ticket since they'd almost certainly be 3* crap~
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on June 06, 2018, 02:27:34 am
Agree with 4* guaranteed > a handful of summons.

Also, back then the JP server still required 4 quartz per summon vs our 3 per summon from the start, so the difference is smaller than it might seem.

Furthermore, the original Japanese event was 6m QP and 6 etc etc, because it was a 6 million download campaign. Ours is only for 3 million downloads, so it actually makes sense for the giveaways in the campaign to follow 3 etc etc.

Post by: Elvis Strunk on June 06, 2018, 05:51:19 am
Marie is a great~ Not only is she among the purest and most lovable of all Servants, but she's basically a Rider version of Cu in battle. Three time invincible, a self heal, and a party heal on her NP... She may not do the most damage of any AOE Rider, but she's definitely got her uses~ I believe I have her at 8/10/8 so far, and in time they'll all be 10s. I can't say she was my biggest desire from the Christmas banner, but I am definitely glad she appeared.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Meliran on June 07, 2018, 03:03:49 pm
So correction on my previous flower guide.

1. Clear all 40 AP quests to get to T-Node.
2. Do T-Node -> Lowest orb quest you haven't done yet on repeat until all orb nodes are done. Use flower collection CEs on the orb quests, and a friend's orb CE for T-Node. DO NOT BUY THE ORB CE.
3. Farm Atalanta's node 9-10 times. Do the 140 Orb node (should have only about 1 run to do of this)
4. Do the daily quest and use those orbs to do the 140 Orb node.

This will clear out the shop besides the CEs. The method of buying the orb CEs will require 10-11 runs of T-Node, an extra 40 AP, and takes longer because you need to do like 4 runs of the 140 orb node instead of just 1 (for grinding).
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on June 08, 2018, 12:29:23 am
I just went ahead and got the Nightingale CEs anyway, since it took so almost no extra effort to get all 4 from the event shop by the time I finished Preta.

Would be even better if we could exchange Lotus for QP, though. 8)
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order

Then I hope we get 1 Lotus : 10,000 QP exchange rate when they do fix it.

... Because getting ~5m QP per run would be very nice indeed. ;D


EDIT:
Thanks to the second half of the event, I have have Sanzang at 4th ascension, and I went ahead and maxed out all of Mash’s skills with the leftover feathers. Plus, with the event shop emptied out, it’s time to start hoarding mats and EXP cards for Raikou.

Congrats. Scath was definitely my MVP during Rashoumon, and IMO she definitely lives up to her reputation. Guaranteed stun on NP for the win.

Fortunately, Onigashima won’t need us to take down the full HP bar or endure for 15 turns for the raids, even in the worse case scenario we can just nuke for maximum damage and not worry about team wipeouts... But Scath buffing her own Quick cards is pretty damned good for that, too.

Fortunately, Onigashima won’t need us to take down the full HP bar or endure for 15 turns for the raids, even in the worse case scenario we can just nuke for maximum damage and not worry about team wipeouts... But Scath buffing her own Quick cards is pretty damned good for that, too.

Not only that, but her buff is targetable. Whoever she wants to have a quick burst can get one~

Just spam the hell out of Preta as hard as you can for the next 3 hours. Was getting claws dropping like confetti from the beasts there. In fact, all of the Six Paths of Reincarnation runs were dropping gold mats at almost (or even better than) 1:1 ratio for me.

I rolled for Ibaraki, and basically only Ibaraki.

I got Raikou and Orion, and no 4* Servants at all.

I mean. Cool? Disappointing? What do I feel at a time like this.

Also if a random 5* has to show up, why can't it be more Jack.

At least I am way more than set on event CEs...

Literally 10 Ibaraki (+ 1 Jack) without Raikou appearing. Clearly the banana oni holds a serious stalker-grudge against me for bullying her too much.

EDIT:
And during the very 10 summon I started before I was typing this post, Raikou finally decides to come over to slice some oni.

Took more way more quartz than I hoped for (nothing other than guaranteed rolls for me during the rest of this year :'(, lol), but still less than my worse-case scenario (I actually got Raikou to NP2 just a couple of ten rolls after I first summoned her).

... So probably a bit less than what one might expect, given that Ibaraki jumped out at me almost every other ten roll I did. :o


It was pretty much a (seemingly) endless cycle of:
1> Yay! Gold Berserker card!
2> It's Ibaraki
3> ... F*$%, goto 1

Post by: Elvis Strunk on June 14, 2018, 11:13:30 pm
I did it... eheh.

It was difficult, but I did it.

I'm not playing FGO anymore. You'll find I've already disappeared from your friend lists.

In truth, I've been hiding the fact that I've fallen a bit too much into a gambling addiction here. I never spent more than I could afford to spend, and never caused any issues for myself, really- though that in and of itself was one of the excuses I used to keep going.

I've known for a while now that I needed to stop this. Addiction runs heavy in my family, and I should have known better. Always avoided that sort of thing my entire life. Didn't think a silly game of all things would be what got me. Partially, I didn't want to admit to it because of shame, partially because I did enjoy it.

I also knew I'd probably need to stop playing, if I wanted to really stop spending; there wouldn't be any other way. But the game was pretty much my only remaining tie here, and I also do love the story, and the cast. That's how it got me to begin with.

I do think it's a good game. Some day, maybe I'd like to come back to it. But probably not. Probably, this is for the best. I deleted everything. From the account, then the document with my bind code, and then the game from my phone. Even my bookmarks and Youtube subscriptions relating to it. I feel terrible, and great, and a bit embarassed afterall, but I think this'll be fine. Apologies if I've gotten you into this game; play if it's what you want, but don't fall into this problem like I did. Be responsible, and don't make excuses.

I don't know if I'll post in this thread anymore. I might follow it, from now on, but I'm not sure yet. I have a lot of thinking to do from here. And, sorry for the long, rambling post. I felt like some explanation was in order, and owning up to my lapse in judgement- such a prolonged one, at that- might help me avoid doing anything like it again.

Take it for what it's worth, coming from somebody who makes little secret about going on whaling sprees in FGO when it comes to characters I really like...

But yeah, no one is going to blame you if it starts feeling like the game is playing you rather than the other way around, and you feel like a clean break is necessary.

Hell, your post even helped me to finally make up my mind about making a clean break from DanMachi Memoria Freese (deleting account recovery info and uninstalling the game). I had been noticing that I was just repeatedly skipping the story parts of events just to grind Iris to roll the gacha, and repeatedly find myself stopping just short of buying Iris to roll paid gacha, for a game where I no longer even bothered to slow down and enjoy the story bits.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on June 15, 2018, 02:41:33 am
*nods* Don't feel ashamed. These things are literally designed to be addictive. Some might think that such a decision is drastic, but you know yourself best and I support your decision. I'll miss your Servants since they finally got to a level that I liked, and you were good with your CEs, but yeah. Gambling ruins lives and better to stop sooner rather than later. Let me know if you need any help in any way, OK? Just stick with the other media that isn't a mobile gacha game!

As a side note, I'd have recommended seeing if you could have sold the account to someone. It wouldn't have made up for what you spent in any way, but there are people who would pay for what you've got. Recoup things a bit.

So I don't condone this, but there's a little bug I've heard about~

Have a party going against the 6m node, and have it just be Arash. Have the rest of the party die in round 1 (a geogius is great for this). Use Arash's Stella to clear the wave and kill himself. For some reason, this give all the drops in round 2 as loot.

You don't get the damage point for doing that though, right?

I suppose it's a way to speed up farming once main event is done with, and after you've gotten 100m DP (or 200m BP, if you're going all out).

On another note, decided to burn my tickets and most of my remaining quartz now rather than save up for next banner/event... 10 minutes later:

Still, I’m planning to throw every scrap of ticket and quartz I get from login, missions, bonds and event I can get my hands on at her (other than 30 paid quartz I’m saving for the guaranteed rolls), and we’ll see how far I can stretch my luck.

Glad it helped even a bit. This is a serious sort of thing, even if I didn't take it seriously enough for a while. I played a few gacha games myself where I just kept logging in and collecting stuff to roll with, rather than playing, because I didn't really enjoy what the game itself was about. Probably not too good to get into that mindset. Games should be fun because they're fun, after all~

As a side note, I'd have recommended seeing if you could have sold the account to someone. It wouldn't have made up for what you spent in any way, but there are people who would pay for what you've got. Recoup things a bit.
Honestly the idea did occur to me, while I was in the process of unlocking everything. But I figured, if I took the time to do anything other than just finishing it then and there, I'd talk myself out of it. And then who knows how much farther I'd go before I decided to stop the next time. If at all. It was hard enough already. Turns out, if you try to burn your Servants, it not only gives you a popup for all your high-rarity Servants, but a separate one for just grailed Servants. So, like, do you want to burn Jack and Nursery Rhyme specifically? Okay, you clicked yes, now do you want to burn them with everyone else?

Maybe it would have been smarter to just sell it, but at this point future saved money is more important than getting anything back right now. I've still got enough to take care of what I need to and more. The bigger issue is that I still want to play. I keep thinking: if I started a new account, I'd have no reason to spend anymore, since everything I sought after and achieved is gone. I could just play with low rarity stuff, and not worry about the rest. Get to keep experiencing the storyline, and enjoying what I originally enjoyed before the problem started. But I don't know if that'd work. Could just find some way to entirely block purchases with my card, or bank, or something, but... I dunno.

For the meantime, I'm gonna just find other things to play and enjoy, and see what I'm feeling like in a month or so. Not done with Fate as a whole, no matter what; still got lots of media to enjoy. And I found a channel that seems to be uploading Onigashima story content, and if they keep it up as the game goes on, I might be able to read stuff without playing, maybe.

I do miss my Servants, and my game. If I ever do play again, I'll miss using Jack most, I think, and maybe that's good enough reason not to try. I'd always want to get her, and then I'd always want to get her to NP5, and unless I made that my literal only goal, I don't think it's feasible without spending money. But I do keep thinking about it.

/me shrugs.

I thought that might be the case - acting fast so you don't back out. But yeah, find what you like and do that. I don't know what starting fresh with FGO would be like were you to do that now - maybe it'd be fine playing free, maybe it is too alluring. As long as you're aware that should help you out, however, and always questioning~

I can set her up with that now. Had Shirou with the Pheasant CE in the All slot to support coral farming on my alt account, but Okita and Gil would be fine for that too.

EDIT:
Back on the progress of the event itself, I was originally playing pretty conservatively on the summit with the Waver/Drake/Raikou combo on the 2BP/3m run. Then I decided to go all out, and found that the Waver/Raikou/Jalter (+Red beans) combo utterly trivialised the 3BP/6m run, with a full NP chain immediately bringing Ushi Gozen down to less than 1m HP, which is then brought down to 0 in the next turn with a couple of boosted Buster crits.

Then again, I probably just shouldn't have wasted my time playing conservatively in the first place, since my alt account using Waver/Kintoki Rider/Anne & Mary (+Green beans) does a pretty consistent job bringing her down to around 2m HP remaining with a full NP chain, and the rest just depends on having some decent Quick servants with survival skills (e.g. our boy Cu-dog) in the back lines if she breaks out her NP.

I've been running it Waver + Santa + Scathach frontline, Waver + Helena + Mash backline, Caldea Mystic Code. Here's the strategy:

Step 1 - Work on getting Santa's bar up to full. Scathach is second priority. Waver does not matter for anything but giving buffs.
Step 2 - Use Santa to destroy the adds, Scathach 1st NP on Boobie monster
Step 3 - Let Boobie monster NP. Have an evade on Scathach.
Step 4 - Use replacement Waver + Helena to get Scathach to full again.
Step 5 - Scathach 2nd NP kills Boobie monster.

ALSO

Made a little tool for farming efficiency for anyone who wants it:

Herc gets the mega damage boost CE, just needs to get 10% NP charge, after which point Waver uses his stuff to charge NPs (crit buff on Lancelot), switch out Wavers, continue buffing. Lancelot uses NP, kills Crystal's and gives a lot of stars. Herc uses HIS NP and then... really just start whacking Ushi really really hard.

Ok maybe I lied a bit. Some stuff here.

New Servants
5* Rider: Ozymandias
Single target Buster NP. Seal enemy NP, lower defense (Overcharge)

Skills: Charisma, Imperial Privilege, Protection from Ra (Party NP charge/Buff success up)

Cards: QAABB

And thus we have a new 5* Rider. A good one! Murder all the Caster bosses!

4* Caster: Nitocris
AoE Arts NP. Chance to instakill.

Skills: Egyptian Magecraft (Heal self, self instakill rate up), High Speed Divine Words, Affection of Horus (Guts, cleanse self debuffs)

Cards:  QAAAB

Don't have any input for Nitocris. She's one 4* Caster I have never gotten. God why are there so many Casters. On paper she looks decent at least. Also cute!

4* Saber: Lancelot
Single Target Arts NP. Arts up for 1 turn (activates first), deal damage, increase enemy damage taken (Overcharge)

Skills: Knight of the Lake (30% NP Charge, gain crit stars), Eternal Arms Mastership (omnom stars), Knight of Owner (stars per turn, crit damage up for 3 turns)

Cards: QAABB

The new critmonster arrives. This one makes his own stars!

3* Archer: Tawara Toda
AoE Buster NP. Increase damage against Demon enemies for 1 turn.

Skills: Protection from Divine Dragon (Buster up for 3 turns, heal), Protection from Arrows, Bale of Inexhaustibility (Party Max HP up for 3 turns)

Cards: QAABB

Another one I don't have anything to say about. Yay another Archer I guess?

3* Assassin: Hassan of Serenity
Single Target Arts NP. Poison, chance to seal skills and NP. Chance to Instakill.

Skills: Shapeshift (Infiltration) (Enemy crit chance down, reduce enemy NP gauge), Throwing Dagger, Silent Dance(Instakill rate up, Debuff success rate up for 3 turns)

See Nitocris and Tawara's notes.

Give it another week or so for your grail, Meli.

INFODUMP CONTINUES!

Story-locked Servants, also some spoilers for final chapter battle
5* Lancer: Artoria
AoE Buster NP, Invincibility Pierce for 1 turn (Activates FIRST, careful when fighting her), recharge NP (Overcharge)

Skills: Mana Burst A, Charisma B, Blessings from the End of the World EX (Charge NP, remove debuffs; yes this is different than Lancer Alter's, don't worry I don't think she uses this one)

Cards: QQABB

Another kinda wet noodle-y Buster Servant. Her last skill is what really makes her different from Lancer Alter. This one is built for NP spam, not crits.

4* Saber: Gawain
AoE Buster NP, Seal Skills, inflict Burn for 5 turns

Skills: Numeral of the Saint (20% Attack up for 3 turns, Buster up on Sunny maps idk what these all are), Charisma E(ugh), Belt of Bertilak (20% NP charge, gain stars, guts for 1 turn)

Cards: QABBB

Behold, Fergus v.2.0! Now with more gimmicks!

4* Archer: Tristan
Single Target Quick NP, Ignore Evade, reduce debuff resist for 3 turns

Skills: Harp of Healing C (slightly less healing than David's version), Grace of the Unexpected Birth (Charge NP, Seal own NP for 1 turn), Admonishment of the King of Knights (remove one enemy's buffs and lowers crit chance)

Cards: QQAAB

Tristan is a bit of an oddball. He's... like a support Archer, I guess. His second skill is weird, so be careful if you use that. All his cards have high hit counts, so he charges his NP at a decent rate, but he can't buff himself for more damage.

3* Saber: Bedivere (1 copy received after clearing story)
Single Target Buster NP, Buster Up (Overcharge) THEN deals damage

Skills: Tactics C, Calm & Collected B (30% NP charge, mental debuff resist up), Oath of Protector (Party Defense up 30% for 1 turn, party debuff resist up)

Best 3* Saber, though that doesn't really say much, considering there's still only the 4 of them even on JP. Still, very good and worth any extra grails you might have. Carried me through all the Lancer enemies in Babylon, along with Altera. Alas, he does not get any rateups for a long time.

Still got more stuff to talk about, so expect those later.

Craft Essence time!

5*, Origin Bullet: Pierce Invincibility,  +35% damage to Caster enemies

I still find it odd for Assassins to be weak to Casters, especially since Kiritsugu is on this one. Really cool art, though!

4*, Covering Fire: +400 damage, +15% crit damage

Not much to say about this one. Worth keeping around if you get it, since a lot of future challenge quests give enemies really high defense, which the flat 400 just ignores.

3*, Battle of Camlann: 10% party NP charge on death

Good if you want to do solo quests. Put it on a level 1 George for free charge.

WARNING, SPOILERS FOR MAJOR BATTLES AHEAD
So, first up is the real boss of Camelot: The desert. Will murder your phone if it's a potato. Can confirm, used to have potato phone for playing FGO. Just a warning that your stuff might experience major slowdown and/or game crash during this chapter. Babylon isn't nearly as hard on phones as Camelot.

For real bosses though, Gawain is our first contender. He appears in Chapter 4 (Arrows 4-5) and 17-4 (Arrow 2).

His first appearance he will not use his NP, instead using his extra attack. However, as a tradeoff, he takes 20% damage rather than 50%. This one you just have to take off a quarter of his health, so get it below 279,564 to win. The second battle and beyond he WILL use his NP and you DO have to fully kill him. Also note, he will use any of his 3 skills, including his NP charge skill. During all battles he gains 2 ticks of NP charge per turn. Bring Euryale and/or Orion.

Mordred is the next boss we'll see, in Chapter 7 (arrows 3-4) and Chapter 17-3 (Arrow 1).

She WILL fire off her NP at the start of each of her turns unless you stun her, drain her charge, or kill her. In Ch 7 Arrow 4 you fight her twice; however, the first battle she will only use her Extra attack instead of her NP. Either bring hard-hitting Archers to take her down fast, or take Asterios to remove all her damage and get free NP charge.

Then we have Tristan, who just breaks the class triangle. He's in Chapter 12 (Arrows 3-4) and 17-3 (Arrow 2).

Yes, he's an Archer. Yes, he's weak to Sabers. Mashu is the only one who remains normal to his bullshit. He acts like a Berserker, AKA 1.5x damage to everything except Ruler/Mashu. Those take normal (1.0x) damage from him. At the very least, his attacks will recharge YOUR NP super fast. Bring Sabers for more damage.

Finally we have Lancelot. 13-3 Arrow 1 and 15-1 Arrow 1.

Lancelot is immune to debuffs and acts like a Ruler in that he takes half damage from anything except Berserkers, Rulers, and Avengers. He DOES, however, only deal half damage to Archers and Rulers. He'll target whoever has the most HP with his normal attacks, but not his NP. Get out yer Jalters for this.

Finally we come to the last bit of information. Mashu gits gud. Really gud.
Spoiler
Chapter 15 Arrow 1 turns her into a 4* and gives her third ascension. Her first skill also gets an upgrade, increasing the defense boost and giving a one-time 2000 damage cut.

Clearing Chapter 17-4 upgrades her NP into Lord Camelot, adding a 30% attack buff for non-Mashu party members and getting her to NP2 for a higher base damage cut.

+1 for the Serenity fan club. I might not ever put her on the front lines more than a handful of times, but she’s on my shortlist of servants who will be max ascended.

Also managed to finally get my hands on the Origin Bullet CE, by summoning every time I managed to gather 3 quartz from Camelot and/or bond levels (currently at chapter 11 on my main account).

Now to buckle down and start saving tickets and quartz for the summer banner.

That feeling when you stack 5 attack downs on Mordred so she does 0 damage all the time.

Almost done. In Chapter 17-3 now. Tristan gon' die.

I did the things. Now I can finally relax and farm XP for a while. Many things to level!
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Elvis Strunk on June 29, 2018, 09:00:21 pm
So within the last few days I decided to give this another try.

Picked up a level one account with no Servants aside from Mash and Jack, been charging through the story since it turns out there's a half AP event for it. Haven't been below 400 AP in days...

Feels weird not having my Servants, but what's really odd is lacking my CEs, strangely. Had a Kaleidoscope since my first couple days on my original account, so farming exp without it is painful. But I have gotten Mash to 40, and Jack to 60 (that's as high as I can get either of them so far). Soon I'll need to start raising some others. Though, all I have is Caster Cu, Kiyohime, Boudica (including a second copy as the only Servant from FP gacha, how helpful...) and a recently gained David. All except Boudica will definitively be useful, at least. Who knows, maybe I'll even use her, though I'd rather have Ushi and Medusa.

Thankfully I managed to get befriended by someone with a Cu Alter and Volumen Hydrargyrum, which helps with basically everything. What was really surprising when I got the account was that it contained a copy of Volumen Hydrargyrum itself, which I never had on my old account. My only 5* CE, but it's helped a lot keeping Jack safe during battle.

I don't plan to post a friend code here yet. Wanna make sure I'll continue playing longterm before doing anything like that. My goal right now is to not spend a penny from this point on. All of my Quartz are just going to be saved until the Christmas rerun, so I can get more copies of Jack. With the exception of Welfares and possibly Nursery Rhyme, any other gold Servant is getting burned. If I accept outright that I won't be keeping any gacha Servants, I can't very well feel the desire to roll for them.

Part of what pushed me to start again now is, I haven't technically missed anything so far. Every event still has a rerun coming, so as long as I'm ready to clear stuff by Halloween's rerun, I can still get every single Welfare, Grail, Lore... So, I think this is a good time for it.

It's fine if that's what you want to do. If you want to make sure you don't spend a penny on it, buy some quartz and do a chargeback. Google will lock your account and you can never purchase again, though you can continue to play the game.

Eh, probably not worth risking your game account also getting locked. Just delete payment method on whichever account you’ve installed the game with (or set up a new account exclusively for the game) should be enough.

Just completed America chapter, not going to try Camelot until I manage to get my Servants to a decent level. Jack hit Bond 6 after the very last fight, so that's cool timing~

I never, ever stopped getting more AP than I was using- I have seventeen hundred right now. My goal for the rest of the day is probably to farm a lot of gems and pieces and such, since it's Assassin day and Jack will appreciate it. Then, maybe get enough exp to get Kiyohime and Mash to a much higher level.

Honestly, I think I just enjoy the combat routine in FGO, since playing through literally everything didn't quite get boring. Even using the same three Servants all the way through. ...Cu Alter is completely broken.

My FP roll yesterday got me Arash and Mozart, neither of which I ever got around to using before, but I think I'll give them a shot this time around. Also got Jekyll and Geronimo, but I'm less certain of using them. Got 131 Quartz so far. Could get some more doing all the Free Quests, but... I'll hold off on that for now~

I think, so far, things are going well~ If anyone wants to add me, my code is 534,775,597.

Oh, interesting. Looked up who wrote each arc, and it makes total sense.

Fuyuki - Nasu. This was really dark at the end, so this makes sense.
Orleans, Okeanos, America - Higashide. Kind of interesting that he wrote Okeanos since that was kind of a boring arc, but the other two both had a sort of epic kind of a feel to it and a good plotline.
Rome, London - Sakurai. No wonder, they both sucked.
Camelot - Nasu.

So I guess I should look forward to Babylonia and Solomon too then, since it seems he wrote the rest of arc 1.

Once upon a time, there was a gorilla named Gawain. He was a really cruel gorilla, wanting nothing more than to hurt innocent young girls.

One day, he came across three beautiful girls outside his home.

Spoiler
(https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/378001881860931585/463136452822433802/unknown.png)

"Oh no!" shouted Stheno. "Whatever shall we do to such a mean gorilla?"

But Euryale had a plan. "All gorillas are perverts. So we shall charm him while tickling him with arrows!"

"But what can I do? All I can do is smile," Stheno groaned.

Euryale gave a wink. "You don't need to do anything but be your own charming self. Even your smile will bring him to ruins!"

And so the girls began to fight. Euryale, using a Black Grail she happened to pick up, truly hurt him badly, taking out 1/2 his HP in a single turn. But alas, there was just a little bit too little to do it! For he had fully charged his NP bar and they were out of charms.

"Oh no!" Stheno gasped. "Whatever shall we do?"

But Euryale only smiled. "We brought in another purple haired cutie for exactly this reason."

So she called upon Meliran to make the switch. And so, Mash came in to save the day! With her impervious wall of snowflakes and immunity, given to Stheno, the only person to suffer was Mash herself.

Euryale came back in, fully ready, and readied her bow. "This ends here, Gorilla!"

And with an explosion, everything was settled.

Given how I just went through Camelot in a day, I went back to do stuff on my JP account since I've been neglecting it for a while. Realized I had 9 grails and decided to start throwing them at Musashi and Meltlilith. Musashi is now 100, Melt is 94 while I take a break from constant QP farming. Melt will eventually get the remaining grails along with the one from the ongoing summer rerun. This was a good choice.

AKA, I'm going to be stuck farming chains for the next month.
The good news is that as long as you level up her first two skills a bit, she practically covers the last two waves of Wasteland farming by herself.

Edit:
Phew. It was a pain and a half, but I finished farming ascension mats for Nito and leveled her up to 80. Also farmed all the mats I need to max ascend Ozy on my main, so I'll level him up as my AP recharges over the next few days.

As for their skills... Eh, I'll probably just wait for events to get the necessary materials.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Meliran on July 06, 2018, 08:57:39 pm
Yeah, anniversary is exciting. Here's what Japan got, and what we're hoping for/expecting.

1. Summoning now costs 3 quartz instead of 4
America - We already have this. But there is a hope that they give us the 2nd anniversary quartz bonus, which was a significant increase in free quartz with purchases.

2. 30 Free quartz
America - They always nerf free quartz for us. I'm expecting 20.

3. Login bonuses. 10m QP, 100k FP, 10 4* embers, 10 HP/ATK fous, 100 prisms, 10 summon tickets
America - Expecting the same.

4. Storage space expanded to 300
America - Already have.

5. Anniversary Heroines CE
America - Expecting the same.

6. Vlad III/Jeanne/Waver NP animation upgrades
America - Expecting the same. No more stupid Waver NP.

7. Triple success in leveling
America - Expecting the same. Want this badly for quite a few servants.

8. Daily quests 1/2 AP
America - Same. Time to grind some doors and hands! I have quite a few servants I want to level here.

9. 14x Strengthening Quests
America - Several big ones here. Emiya gets his first, Robin Hood gets one, Atalanta gets one, Carmilla, Martha, Lancelot... Stheno gets an attack buff too, but that's only useful in the rare event of a Gawain.

10. Palingenesis
America - Already have this.

We get a trial quest for Da Vinci. In addition, there are 3 banners related to it:
1. Da Vinci summoning campaign. She's pretty good, but I rate Helena higher.
2. Singularity based. All the servants of each singularity are thrown together. Good chance at a Artoria, Altera, Drake, and Jeanne. All other 5*s on rate up are traps.
3. Paid. If you buy 30 SQ, you get a guaranteed 5*. You choose between Saber/Archer/Lance/Ruler class, or Assassin/Rider/Caster/Berserker class. No limited 5*s appear in here.

Been keeping an eye on the stream. No mention of anniversary quartz, though I expect there will still be some. It was said there would be more stuff than what they said at the panel.

Login bonuses, CE, check, success rate up, 1/2 AP, strengthenings, all confirmed. Da Vinci banner and paid gacha, obviously.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Meliran on July 08, 2018, 12:55:33 am
Primary differences:

1. We get 10 free quartz instead of 30. Typical.
2. They gave us the purchase bonuses a year early. So now $80 gets 167 quartz instead of 140.

Decided to take advantage of the 3x success and half AP. Rolled a bit for new Servants and hit the JACKPOT: Lancer Cu, Medea, Kid Gil, Ushi, Fergus! Well, I mean, that's not terribly impressive I guess, but I desperately needed more Servants~ Looking forward to the 100k FP too, and while I should save it for an event or something, I'll be rolling it ASAP~ Got a couple new CEs, though no Gold Servants to burn. Will need at minimum one more Rare Prism to get the Beginning of the Journey CE when it becomes available, not to mention the Mystic Codes... alas. Shall hold off on more rolling until later on, I suppose.

Of course, I shall be skipping the guaranteed gacha. Good luck to everyone else, however~

Elvis, let us know how the game goes for you with starting anew with different servants save Jack and Mash.
Can do~

It hasn't been too bad. And I do have a good deal of overlap, since my quartz and FP rolls have been nice to me. Hans, Medea, Ushi, Cu, all my old favorite non-Golds are here to help. Except Medusa and Euryale, the Gorgons are being a bit shy.

At the same time, I've been using some new people as well. Saint George has already proven useful, and I have high hopes for Caeser, Kid Gil, and Fergus. Not to mention Arash, though it is admittedly difficult to get to using any NPs without any sort of starting NP CE.

Right now my biggest roadblock is the lack of Ascension materials. Even ignoring skills for the most part, I just can't level most of my Servants past 40, and some I still haven't promoted at all. Events should help with that, assuming I can get through them at all.

What'll prove really useful is Welfares once they start showing up, since they'll be by far my highest leveled Servants, with how easy they are to Ascend. I should also be able to promote Jack again, if I can get enough stuff from the Summer shop.

All in all, it's mostly a waiting game. Prepare as much as I can now, in hopes I can make good progress once Summer hits. And hopefully eventually be strong enough to tackle Camelot.

Finally, I'll mention how glad I am that I started at a time with half AP on story, followed shortly after by half AP dailies. This would be way more difficult otherwise, and imaging someone having to start without that, and without a Servant on the level of Jack... sheesh.

She's a very good girl. I won't be grailing her, though, since her main niche is poison multiplicity, which isn't effected by grails.

I will have 2 grails between now and summer 2017 to use on someone. I'm between a level 90 Chloe and a level 90 Suzuka Gozen.

Found out something interesting about Orion vs. Euryale

Orion, in general, NPs harder than Euryale vs. males. A NP1 Orion vs. a Saber male will hit for 150k on her NP, and a NP5 Euryale will hit for 135k - about 11% more.

However, the issue comes up with buff stacking. The way FGO works, you damage is for the most part calculated by this formula:
Attack Bonus * Card Effectiveness Bonus * NP Power Bonus/Powermod * Attack Mod * NP Mod * NP Special Attack Mod

Euryale has a card effectiveness mod, and a NP Special Attack Mod. Orion has an Attack Bonus, And her male enhancement counts as a powermod.

So, let's say that one were to put a Black Grail on them. Orion's bonus becomes additive - her male bonus plus the BG - and Euryale's is multiplicative. Indeed, with a Black Grail, Euryale does 243k damage to Orion's 211k. Orion would need to be NP2 to do more than Euryale with BG.

How about with Waver's buffs? Again, it's multiplicative for Euryale, additive for Orion. Ignoring CEs, Orion's advantage shrinks from 11% to 6%.

The only way to improve Orion's advantage over Euryale is to have a servant that boosts card performance. So a Tamamo would be better suited buffing Orion than Euryale, and Helena is better for Orion.

So in the end, what does this mean? It means that so long as Euryale has at least a 15% NP up modifier, (7% with Waver buffs), she is better than Orion at killing men. Of course, this isn't excluding non-damaging factors like her stall, and her 2 charms.

Also you should try Leonidas if you have him. I heard he is pretty good!
I'll definitely keep him in mind if he shows up~ Besides maybe Proto Cu, I can't really think of other Lancers I wanna use much, so he'll fill a good role.

Just wanted to mention that, as my first time seeing her final art: she truly is precious~ Can't wait to get that mask off her face.

On an unrelated note, I have decided to forgo rolling more copies of Jack, and just use quartz literally as soon as I get them. It paid off this time, as I got Partake with the King! Buster damage up, but even better 50% starting NP! That should make things a little easier. Also I realized I need to spend quartz for storylocked 3*s later on anyway, so accepting an NP1 Jack now is better than trying to decide what to roll on later. I mostly just want a certain Avenger in a couple years.

Continuing to make progress.

After stuffing myself to the brim with gold EXP, I decided to use my AP on the class dailies. Managed to get enough pieces and ascension materials to promote a lot of people a little higher- of special note is Medea, who is actually now tied with Mash and Jack as my strongest Servant at 60.

Made the difficult choice of sacrificing all of my stocked up bones and Assassin Pieces I was going to give to Jack, but now Serenity, Hundred Faces, and Blackbeard are a bit stronger, so I suppose it was worth it. Shame that literally all of my Assassins currently need more bones to promote, though, since I have a total of one.

Anyway, all this promotion has had another side effect: all my EXP is running low again. So I'll have to switch back to that, maybe after Assassin day ends. Still, burning all the silver EXP I got in the last week or so, I have over five hundred Mana Prisms, meaning some Fou and tickets next month should be pretty easy to acquire.

Friend point roll yesterday got me two copies of Leonidas. He's stuck at 35 for right now, but I can see how he may be useful. Also somehow I thought he was a 3*, but this way he'll be easier to get anyway~

Also max limit broke a 4* CE entirely through free quartz, which is pretty cool. It's the one with the Gudao and the Gudako and fish and stuffs. Not the most useful, but certainly nothing to complain about, since I've only got about a dozen gold CE in total.

Kind of wasting some of my AP. Decided it wasn't too important to force myself to spend time doing all these quests, especially since I have all the EXP and ascension stuff I can use right now. Playing 'when I feel like it' is much less stressful. We'll see how that goes once an event starts, though.

Also: used Arash's NP for the first time yesterday! It probably won't be the last time. The poor guy.

Burned all of my stockpiled tickets and quartz on the *cough* Tituria banner like a dope because I really wanted an NP self-charging AOE Lancer on my main account (after missing out on Karna), and I'm an idiot who forgot until after the fact that we're getting Santa Lily as welfare later this year.

At least the handful of 5* CEs I got helped me limit break some that had been sitting idle.

Then, of course, I just had to use the 1/2 AP cost for Free Quests as an excuse to keep throwing more quartz at the banner, and keep kicking myself for getting mediocre 3*/4* CEs instead of saving up for the Summer event.

Angra finally showed his stupid face in my rolls. At least now I sort of have options for one of the Nerofest fights.

Also, forgot about this, but relevant now that we have Camelot https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVOCWuGZfW0

Anyway uh. Summer things. I'm not even going to try to do this seriously.

First Banner

Tamamo (Lancer 5*)
Ball Buster NP, super effective against Males
First skill: Charisma but with stargen for males
Second skill: Charm but with more debuffs
Third skill: Like 10 buffs but stuns her for the next turn

QQABB cards. 10/10 would get kicked again.

Moedred (Rider 4*)
Arts AoE NP, spam this shit for days
First skill: Arts buff conducive to NP spams
Second skill: DOOOOOOOOOOODGE
Third skill: Yo dawg I heard you like NP spam so we put some NP charge on your guts so you can NP spam while you die

QQAAB cards. 8/10 good spams, super cute, but is a wet noodle.

Jailbait Dragon AKA Kiyo (Lancer 4*)
Busts one person for cops with NP.
Skills: Literally her normal zerker skills but with crit down instead of defense buff and no debuff clear on her buster up.

QQABB cards 0/10 do not want yandere

Non-Jailbait lesbian pirate (Archer 4*)
Buster NP with same gimmick as normal not-swimsuit version and defense down.
First skill: See Tamamo's first but slightly worse (.5% worse)
Second skill: Omnom stars
Third skill: What's that you want your attack buffs tied to your one survival skill ok

QAABB cards 6/10 ok i guess idfk

Second Banner
Pew pew seiba (Archer 5*)
She shoots her sword in NP that's how you know she's an archer
First skill: Like Mordred's but with defense buffs
Second skill: Heals but lose NP charge
Third skill: look it's the summer-flavored charisma again

QQAAB cards 9/10 jesus get rid of that stupid crown already

you were expecting a saint BUT IT WAS ME DIO (Ruler 4*)
ROAD ROLLER DAAAAAAAAA (no seriously i'm not kidding https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBU1WdLTUqg )
First skill: NP charge but stupid map dependent attack buff
second skill: cockblock those annoying debuffs but only once
Third skill: i ran out of stupid shit to say. regular scathach's third skill + rama's overcharge effect all in one i think.

QABBB cards 10/10 punchy saint

Crazy Hat Lady (Caster 4*)
SHEER HAT ATTACK HAS NO WEAKNESSES
first skill: fukkin summer charisma again it's the last one i swear
second skill: stars/heals per turn

QAAAB cards 9/10 best hat but kinda meh otherwise i think

Swimsuit Shishou (4* AssAssin Welfare)
Gae Bolg (Soccer/Actual football version)

Food isn't too bad - just go to jungle lightning difficulty. Better drops there for water than beach.

Of course, even putting aside Squirtoria as a limited servant, Chloe should be arriving within a few more weeks. At that point, even Orion's place as a general utility single target Arts archer (with an Evade skill) will be challenged.

Limited can mean a couple different things. In the case of welfares, limited means "temporary until you do X" after which point they become permanent.

In the case of non-welfares, it just means "Only available in specific summon banners."
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Elvis Strunk on August 06, 2018, 09:15:10 pm
Also, if you get a temporary copy of a welfare, level them, and then make them permanent, they keep the levels you gave them so nothing is wasted.

On an unrelated note, I farmed enough evil bones to promote Jack, so she's 70 right now. Need a bunch of void dust and stuff before she can hit 80, but... progress~

Seeing as I have yet to do much of anything in it and have little desire to do so currently, I think I've given up on the Summer event this time around. Still too weak to clear stuff quickly or easily, so better to just promote and level people.

I think just the main story quests and daily 1 AP quests should give you a good portion (or maybe even the majority) of the building materials you'd need for at least one build tree?

If nothing else, that's a relatively easy way to get yourself around 300 mana prisms from each part of the event.

So I had 360 quartz and 14 tickets. Earlier I had rolled Surfer Mordred in the mixed rateup, so I was saving it for it. I had 3 goals:

1. Surfer Mordred NP2
2. Meat Wars Helena CE
3. No Archuria! Chloe'll fill her niche well enough, is cuter, and I've saved stuff for her.

So, went ahead and rolled. Surfer Mordred? Takes all 14 tickets and 300 quartz to get her.

That satisfied, I went for the CE. And then?

Sure, there were less Servants available, but it gave you a higher chance to get one you might want if they'd already been released, and you got it sooner. I think the complaints about that were a bit over the top, to be honest.

/me mumbles something about Jack, from the background.

Speaking of, did her interlude. Farmed a bunch of void dust, now I need one more eternal gear and she'll be level 80. Getting back up there~

Yep. There's quite a lot of really good F2P servants. Lu Bu does more damage than Herc, Arash is a 1-turn mob clear, Shakespeare and Hans are wonderful chargers, and Spartacus is a great damaging servant.

Caution? Thrown to the winds.

Between the event's story and trying her out as an NPC support, I had so much fun with Martha that I went and had a bit of a whaling session on my main account, getting her to NP5 while she was on rate-up.

Picking up 2 copies of Squirtoria along the way.

Now I just need 2 more grails, bucket loads of EXP cards, and even more bucket loads of QP, and I'll eventually get her to level 100.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on August 10, 2018, 09:39:27 pm
I've been thinking of grailing Martha myself because she's a fun character, and Rulers benefit from Grails more than other Servants due to 1.1x damage and their ridiculously strong resistances.

So Marie is level 80, 4/4/4, and fou'd.

Archuria is in my second archive surrounded by XP cards she'll never get to eat. Her punishment for spooking me.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on August 12, 2018, 05:10:07 am
Got another Martha from a gold ticket. So she's NP3 now. Only summer Servant I've received, but she's the 4* of the event I wanted most. Archuria is someone I still want though...
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Elvis Strunk on August 12, 2018, 05:36:53 am
I think the gold servants have taken me not collecting them to heart, as not a single one has shown up with every Quartz and ticket I've gotten since starting. Also got a new 5* CE recently... 500 Year Obsession. I can find some vague, niche use for it, maybe, but even now it's basically worthless. Medusa and Euryale still refuse to appear.

On a different note, leveled some of Jack's skills, focused on the Assassin stuff since that was today. Still collecting the gears I need for her final ascension, and I've got a bunch of claws to get after that, but progress is progress. Also accidentally got stuff to promote Asterios once more. After Jack, I think I'll focus on max ascending Medea, and maybe Cu. Though, Jack's skills are gonna take forever. Come to think of it, I don't even have any Lores...

Best thing about these events is the mass of 4* XP Cards you can get. It's allowed me to raise the levels of quite a few servants and ascend 3 of them.

Alright, so I have a slight dilemma. I have Scathach at lv60 ready to ascend, only trouble is, she requires a host of bones for her ascension... Bones I have been saving for Tamamo's final ascension. So my dilemma is, do I ignore Scathach's ascension and keep hoarding for Tama or ascend her and work on getting more bones for Tama?
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on August 15, 2018, 02:59:37 am
Since it's for Tamamo's LAST ascension, go for Scathach. By that point, Tamamo will have all her skills, and if you get the bond levels, potentially the upgrades for her NP and third skill.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on August 15, 2018, 07:32:25 am
The Halloween re-run (assuming it doesn't get skipped) should guarantee 20 bones in its event shop. Otherwise, I think they should be decently farmable during the Prisma Illya event.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on August 15, 2018, 09:12:31 am
Since we're getting close, how do rerun events work? Are they something that takes place at the same time as the new event? Is there anything different about them? Are the items you bought previously available in the shop?
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on August 15, 2018, 11:45:43 am
In order:

1) No, reruns occur before a new event

2) They don't give as much time as the first occurrence did to complete everything

3) Yep, everything in the shop is available, no matter if you bought it the first time or not. Yes, this includes anything related to welfare Servants, but if you've already got all their stuff, you're just getting yourself a few mana prisms.

EDIT: Also, lottery reruns will have a hard limit on how many boxes you can do.

Bones are horrid is Prisma Illya. You get 15 from the missions, and the other is a 30% drop rate in a 20 AP node - or 66 AP/bone. You can farm X-G for a 21.4 AP/bone rate.

Thankfully, Martha does not need any, on account of being a Ruler. She just needs stuff from all classes (pieces, monuments, skill gems) for most of her stuff. Getting her level 8 and 9 skills takes bloodstone tears and dragon scales, though.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order

Wait, why no bind code?

Regardless, I've read that support are willing to help people recover their accounts (create new bind code from server side tools?) if you can provide sufficient details to prove that you are in fact the account's owner, so if you have a phone/tablet capable of running the game, you can probably recover your account through that.

On an unrelated note, on the subject of lost accounts: I've heard it's very likely you can recover it if there's a card used to buy quartz. All in all I've heard the account recovery process is supposed to be pretty good, as long as you don't mention having played on an emulator. Not sure if you're overly concerned with doing that sort of thing at the moment, but all hope may not be lost.

Full disclosure:
I only rolled with a handful of free quartz and tickets on my main account, because this time, what I could spend on this event went entirely to my alt.

As much as I’d love to have the Emiya family reunion on both my accounts, there’s only so much I can spend on the game (unless I seriously forego my shot at Merlin at the end of the year), and my main already has Sanzang as a single-target Caster.

Anyway, my alt definitely has better CEs than my main for this event:

Jalter drops void dust? Guess I know what I'm farming for after I finish the mission list.
Isn't the void dust drop rate there just 15%, for a run costing 30 AP? You'd get 63.8% rate in Charlotte, for only 20 AP per run, any time you like (and pretty much anywhere that shadow servants pop up).

For the same AP cost, you might as well go and smack Tesla around some, since for 30 AP you'd get freaking 90% drop rate for the far more difficult to get feathers, that normally peaks at just 17.4% drop rate.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order

My only real issue with the event is the Assassin part. Illya and Chloe have helped, but having Jack as my only strong Servant through most of it was unhelpful. Either Casters made her very ineffective, or the things she would have been good against changed randomly. Still using her every mission of course.

Of course I haven't had to deal with any of the grinding for the last few months and am thus as far from being burnt out as possible.

I've only just gotten up to the Gentlemen part. So far it's not been hard or anything - Raikou is an absolute beast - but it has reminded me about the issues I have with Prisma Ilya. It is very much aimed at a certain type of audience and expects me to watch it because it's Fate still, and that there are some really good scenes if you ignore all the creepy stuff.

I have one, consistent advice as far as the Prisma Illya series goes:
Watch the (surprisingly good) first season of the anime if you want to see how the series look animated, but otherwise just stick with the original manga (oh, and the movie once you’ve caught up on the manga).

The later series of the anime tends to push the fanservice too far, and what were originally comic relief side stories (there to give readers a break from the more serious stuff) gets strung together and rubbed in your face, raising the creep factor.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on September 01, 2018, 07:04:45 am
Yeah, that's the thing. I watched the first season, liked it, and then the second season added Chloe and it isn't just the content, it's the way it is animated. Lots of zooms and lingering camera angles. But then the final few episodes were so good and I was left complaining about why they couldn't have done things like that the whole way through?

Gonna be honest. I have not been enjoying this event. I have a list.
  • It felt far too horrendously grindy
  • I got annoyed at quite a few of the raid boss stage gimmicks (looking at you Gilles, Phantom)
  • The event is designed for you NOT to use Assassins (The raid bosses that should have been Riders got class changes, more than half the raids were Casters)
  • The battle finish music is a very annoying 5 second loop
  • The story made me feel dirty. Except for the part where I had a Fou ear headband and got to be super deadpan about it.
  • I had to use a bunch of XP cards on Chloe that I would rather have given to several other people

haha time for nerofest soon yay i love grindy bullshit please kill me
Yeah, I will definitely agree there were a few grindy steps. Running Candy A 9 times and Nitocris 6 times in specific were pretty bad. Gimmicks to me made it fun though.

But actually, this event was more made to give casters an advantage, rather than preventing you from using assassins. They didn't want you to roll Illya, or Helena/NR/Medea, and then have a raid where you couldn't use them because the boss was a rider. The caster raids, of course, are simply because Magical Girls use magic. :P

Overall, I've enjoyed this event a lot. Sparkles and magical girls are always fun. ^.^

Congratulations!

On an unrelated note, seeing Gandr there reminded me of something I noticed recently that I find pretty cool. Since I've only got the 4* version of most CEs, I noticed the theme that the Buster, Arts, Quick, and Starting NP CEs are Illya, Shirou, Rin, and Sakura, respectively. I never really paid them much attention when I had the 5* versions, but it's a neat detail. I also like that those are basically just the 'normal' versions of them, as well.

Threw 3 quartz on my alt in the general direction of Boobie Lancer and Karna, finally got myself a copy of Kscope there instead, which is just as good (or maybe even better) for making farming more efficient.

Going from 5~6 turns to clear ember, to just 3~4 turns to clear, really adds up over time.

Scathach/Cu though... Fuck that was close.

Yeah, although relatively straightforward, Cu/Scath also gave me the most close call battle so far.

Berserker I dealt with after losing only 3 servants, and this was before I got a single copy of the Bride Umu CE. Assassins I lost only Mash, thanks to my 10/10/10 Amakusa with MLB Bride Umu CE ploughing through them like a tank, despite only using Iri as my healer because I never really got around to leveling up Medea Lily.

But Cu/Scath? Worried too much about Cu's evade spamming and accidentally killed him too quickly, and was down to 2 servants with less than 2k HP each when I took her down (though one of them was OG Umu and her Thrice Setting Sun, so in reality I still had some leeway).

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on September 18, 2018, 08:19:57 am
Decided to try some of the Challenge quests, which are certainly interesting, I have to give them that. Heracles was probably the hardest one for me. He eventually started downing my guys, but I boosted Martha Ruler on the back row with a Command Seal after she rezzed with the event CE and she took off the final two lives of him. I still had Cu and someone else just in case.

Cu and Scathach weren't too tricky. Used a friend's Mordred with a strong opening burst, d'Eon to tank every single hit of theirs while I chipped down Scathatch, then I used Shiki Saber to finish them off. One with her NP, the other bypassing invincibility with a regular hit on the same turn. Swapped out Mordred with Medea Lily to enable Shiki to NP slightly earlier than she would have normally.

The assassins one was fun in that it is definitely a puzzle fight for endurance. Well, all are puzzle fights, really. Anyway, I grabbed Brand's Amakusa and my own Medea Lily and Tamamo and just tanked my way through. Amakusa with damage and preventing death, Lily with healing and debuff removal, and Tamamo with more healing and skill spam. Yet to do the next one but I hear it's a bit tricky.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on September 18, 2018, 12:22:08 pm
Yeah, Siegfried's is tricky. He's got about 200% defense and massive damage reduction. Flat damage, from Divinity or Waver's third skill, is unaffected entirely. Emiya's NP bypasses the defense, but is still cut by the reduction. ANGRA'S NP does not care about either boost, so I'm going to be using him for my attempt.

UPDATE: Oof ouch my command seals ow

Made it through Siegfried's fight at the cost of all 3 CS. Iri really is one of the most useful welfares for these fights.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Meliran on September 19, 2018, 12:35:35 am
I've been doing Fran / Chloe / Waver / Waver. Typically takes 4 turns to clear the waves, though I can sometimes get 3 if I can get a Chloe quick and 2 Fran cards. Fran oneshots the last wave regardless.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on September 19, 2018, 12:37:37 am
For this I've been running Lalter (damage boost CE), Archeria (Golden Sumo), and two Wavers (Petal CE) with the plugsuit. Kill the first wave normally, have Archeria nuke the Spriggan (and possibly the mech in the same turn, cards permitting), swap second Waver in for Archeria, nuke Karna and Arjuna with Lalter's NP.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Meliran on September 19, 2018, 12:55:30 am
Yeah, my typical process:

Fran w/damage CE, Chloe w/petal, waver w/petal, waver w/petal

Turn 1: Depends on whether I get the cards I need. I need 1 buster from fran or chloe, 1 arts from either, and the last anything but a Chloe quick. If I get that I do full double waver buffs and Chloe's 50% NP charge. The 2nd waver's 30% targeted goes to whoever doesn't have the arts card. Use plugsuit attack buff here. This clears the wave.
If I don't, then this turn takes 2 turns, and I don't do waver buffs until turn 2
Turn 2: Chloe projection followed by her NP. Any attack from Fran or Chloe will kill the add.
Turn 3: Fran NP up skill and defense down skill on Arjuna. Clears the wave.

I believe this only works with a NP2+ Fran though.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Arraxis on September 19, 2018, 05:51:46 am
Mmhmm, yeah, she does damage first and then negates. Amakusa negates first. I noticed this a while back when I tried using her to get rid of evasion and the like from other enemies. She removes it, but she doesn't get to do her damage. And then there's things where instakill takes effect before damage meaning you don't get the NP gauge charged because you aren't hitting the enemy. Order of effect is important~
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: mikebrand83 on September 19, 2018, 08:44:50 am
On my main acct:
Squirtoria / Raikou / Waver (Support) / Summer Martha / [Filler] / [Filler]
Raikou with MLB White Rose, everyone else with Joint Recital
Squirtoria handles the Spriggan in wave 2, Raikou wipes out both Karna and Arjuna using Mystic Slayer + NP. Martha is there as a backup in case I accidentally let Raikou get killed

On my alt acct:
Chloe / Summer Martha / Waver (Support) / [Filler] / [Filler] / [Filler]
Summer Martha with MLB White Rose, everyone else with Joint Recital
Chloe handles the Spriggan in wave 2, and if I'm lucky, Martha using Jacob's Limbs + NPBB chain takes down both Karna and Arjuna on the same turn (and even if Arjuna survives, he'll have such low HP I can take him down on the next turn)

Final set of quests is up! Only a few more days to farm those boxes!
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Meliran on September 22, 2018, 07:37:25 pm
So, Christmas 2016 looks to be a nightmare of a grind. So I was looking for a way to automate it with a mouse macro that just clicks where I tell it to in a certain pattern. Mini mouse macro I believe is the best one?

Anyways, here's the setup:

Frontline:
1. Arash w/KScope. Cost 3+12 = 15. Only needs his charge unlocked.
2. Kintoki Rider w/Holy Night Dinner, limit broke once and level 40. Cost 12+12 = 24. Needs skills 1 and 2 maxed.
3. Waver w/ Sumo Wrestling (Can be replaced for a MLB Holy Night Dinner when one if available). Cost 16+12 = 28. Needs skill 3 at level 7 or higher.
4. Mordred w/Holy Night Dinner. Cost 16+12 = 28. Needs skills 1 and 3 maxed. Needs to be NP2.
5. Shakespeare w/Holy Night Dinner. Cost 4+12 = 16. Needs skill 1 maxed.
Total Cost = 111

Turn 1:
Charge Arash. STELLA, wave cleared.

Turn 2:
Cast Rider Kintoki's charge, use Waver buffs 2 and 3 to get him full. Mordred will be at 50% and Waver full at this point. Cast Rider Kintoki's quick up and select his with 2 random cards. The lowest combination - Waver Quick and Waver Arts - will just barely deal the rest of the damage to the dragon (hence why he needs skill level 7 and Sumo). Wave cleared.

Turn 3:
Plugsuit Rider Kintoki out for Shakespeare. Use his buster buff on Mordred, and his NP charge on her too. Use Mordred's NP charge to get her to 100%, and her self buster buff. Use Waver's 30% charge on himself. Use the Plugsuit attack buff. Cast Waver's NP and Mordred's NP to kill the wave (190% effective vs. Santa Rider). Wave cleared.

It requires a lot of specific things - most inaccesably a NP2 or higher Mordred at 10/x/10. I'll be putting mine up on the friends list for anyone interested when the event does come.

Use the FGO Drop Rates Google Sheet, lol. Wondering if you weren't doing like, 10 AP, lol.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Geocorn on September 27, 2018, 07:59:25 pm
No I was doing all 4 multiple times. I see from the sheet it's only 30 and 40AP that drop the scales. I'll start focusing only on those two, but I have done them before so it's weird I haven't had a scale drop yet.

Also, has anybody ever had Master Missions completed but it won't let you accept the quartz fragments? The little dot says I have "3" complete, but when I click, there's only 2 complete, and nothing happens when I tap on "GET". I even tried clearing the cache and it's still persisting. I tried to Google the issue but I only saw people talking about not being able to claim cards not quartz fragments. ???

Edit:
Used a golden apple and just played 4 40AP Rider quests in a row. still 0 scales. F this RNG.

Farming for materials is hell~ Easiest to just wait for an event that has what you want... Though, sometimes that can take a while. It looks like the Halloween Rerun will have ten Dragon's Reverse Scales you can buy, as will the Christmas Rerun AND the new Christmas event this year, so you might be able to more easily get up to 30 that way.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on September 27, 2018, 10:07:58 pm
My personal opinion, the item dailies just aren't worth farming unless you need skill gems or pieces/monuments. You have to hope for a specific enemy to appear out of the variety available for the class AND hope they drop what you need. We're shit outta luck for a lot of drops for a while, sadly.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Meliran on September 27, 2018, 10:08:27 pm
With Dragon Scales and Hearts, you are best waiting until events to farm them. They don't get good nodes until like... February.

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Elvis Strunk on September 28, 2018, 06:42:05 am
I believe it's an infogram detailing how much of each material upcoming events will yield, divided into the number that event has, symbolized by a Servant that represents said event. For instance, if you wanted to see where you can get Hearts, you look to find ten in the new Halloween event, represented by Liz Brave, and ten in the new Christmas event, represented by Jeanne Lily. Likewise, you can see, under Void Dust, that there are thirty-five per box in the Christmas rerun, represented by Santa Alter, and four per box in the new Christmas event, once again represented by Jeanne Lily. The items are also separated by item rarity, and furthermore, the grayed out ones on the bottom of each are materials that aren't available at all, as of yet.

As for Geo's mission bug, I dunno what might be causing it. It does sound strange... a quick check on the subreddit doesn't seem to show any results. You may wanna try and send an error report. There's a chance that you'll be able to collect them once the next missions get added, as you have a couple weeks after finishing but not collecting a mission, to do so. But that may not help at all.

Can you post screenshots from the main screen and on the master mission screen? That might help us find clues about what's going on.

And even if we can do nothing to help, you'd probably still want screenshots when you ask their tech support to look into this... BTW, the email address for that is [email protected]

P.S.
Don't forget to check out interludes and strengthening quests for guaranteed ascension material drops. For example, the 3rd and 4th arrows of Arash's strengthening quest will each give you a dragon scale. You do need to get him to 4th ascension, but that only requires you to get him to level 50, and using fairly common ascension materials.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Geocorn on September 28, 2018, 03:53:44 pm
I finally ended up clicking on "ALL" instead of "Can Be Claimed" and was able to select the 5 rewards. When I did, the 2 that were stuck on the "Can Be Claimed" tab also disappeared. I was Googling and didn't see anybody else talking about that issue. I must be special. :)

And thanks for all the advice on the reverse scales.

I made a thing telling y'all exactly what the gimmicks are and where they are tho

ANYWAY

Tristan's bullshittery is that there are 2 waves the first time. First wave! Archer knights! Second wave! Tristan, who is weak to Sabers, who are weak to normal Archers, AKA WEAK TO THE FIRST WAVE.

He takes half damage from everything else and does MORE damage to everything else! Hahahahahahahaha

Second time you fight him is literally just him tho which isn't nearly as bad

seriously this isn't even the worst bullshit we get to deal with. part 1.5 is so much worse. fukkin shimosa is gonna give me ptsd flashbacks. asshole giant ghost with 3 healthbars and 500 different debuffs. forcing story support saber into frontline against archer boss. boss that sits and murders you. two bosses at once and both have aoe nps.

i'd take that one chapter i really hate in babylonia over shimosa and its bullshit.

Tristan really isn't bad. I think he's immune to poison? But in addition, he is weak against sabers and takes normal damage from archers.

If you scroll back a bit, you'll see what I did. It wasn't that bad. I just frontlined Liz / Mash / Waver to deal with the archers in front, and then poked away with them against Tristan. In the end, thanks to Mash's self-target/invin I was able to get him down to like 43k before a saber in the backline came and ate him.

Not a bad fight. Just a long one.

The worst one for me was Ozy/Nitocris at the end. Then again, I was stupid and forgot to change my party from all casters to fit the triangle there.

Honestly the sheer amount of bones and blue caster gems that have dropped has been pretty great. Made CE farming more than worthwhile. Though on that front, managed to get a fifth Maid in Halloween today, so I maxed both shop CEs before they went away forever. Rerun, eat your heart out.

Now to entirely ignore the event and farm EXP for Serenity instead.

It was more that I didn’t originally plan to get these event CEs, since unlike the Halloween Princess CE, the event shop CEs this time are not particularly useful outside of the event, so I prioritised exchanging for ascension materials on my alt after my main already got a MLB Hero Elly CE.

Well, I suppose my alt is now set for the eventual re-run next year, lol.

Always get the CEs and Event Servant stuff first~

Actually, this event was special. The only CE worth buying for gameplay purposes was Eli-chan's Adventure, and that was only if you need a good amount of stuff in the shop. Buying for art or drops changes things, of course.

Oh, I know that this event was bad in terms of event CE's worth, but I get them for the sake of completing my collection. I can't get them elsewhere and I don't need to pay money for it, so I'll grab it.

All of who are already existing characters from elsewhere in the Fate franchise~! I'd be curious to see what the graph for, say, Napoleon was like. Not gonna say Merlin because he is proven OP, so that's just mechanics, but someone like him who did get a lot of attention and is based off of someone famous seems like it'd be worth looking at.

Very nice. And a year should be plenty of time to stockpile tickets and free quartz until you're practically swimming in them... Before you sacrifice them all in an arcane summoning ritual to call upon eldritch existences get as many copies of Abi as possible.

He ended up as a dude who casually lugs around a giant cannon that's bigger than he is (https://fategrandorder.fandom.com/wiki/Napol%C3%A9on)?

He's also 189cm tall ("It seems his height decreases when he is summoned as a Rider.")

Oh, that's what you meant. Somehow I ended up with the impression that you were referring to his Saint Graph. :o

Maybe someone with a subscription to one of those app sales tracking sites might be able to shed more light, but after a cursory look, I can't seem to find anybody who'd bothered to take a snapshot of FGO sales/grossing data between July 13 ~ July 27 (nor any comments to suggest anything out of the ordinary was happening).

I believe think that a fairly reliable rule of thumb is that when a character is more popular than average, they tend to show up on CEs pretty quickly, and eventually appearing in alternative classes as well. Most servants eventually end up on CEs sooner or later, but sooner is probably a good indication of DW wanting to capitalise on a servant's known popularity while it's still fresh.

I've been spending a gold ticket on each limited Servant event simply to say I did it - they're limited Servants, after all, and I got a rainbow spark on a gold ticket on the Ilya banner. Ended up getting Orion, my first 5* Archer. I worry this could be a bad sign considering I'm gonna be rolling 3-500 SQ for Ishtar in a couple of days. Still, I welcome her to my Chaldea! I would have been very upset if I got her as a spook while rolling for Ishtar, but a gold ticket? Great!

In before Arjuna spook for Ishtar, though...

the Ilya banner.
Too anxious about the results for my last semester of studies to sleep, so been browsing at 2am rather than sleeping. But thanks to being reminded about the Ilya banner, I finally got the 5th copy of the Miyu CE I needed to limit break it on my alt account.

And it turns out I was worried about nothing anyway, since the student portal was updated with the results, and I got myself a Credit, a Distinction, and two High Distinctions.

Post by: Arraxis on November 27, 2018, 08:25:45 am
So, I worked out that I had around a 50% chance to get Ishtar with my stock of tickets and SQ, about 10-15% more if I bought what I was willing to. Luckily, I didn't have to go that far:

(https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/328901042768969730/516887300815323137/Screenshot_20181127-190508_Fate_GO.jpg)

Prior to this I also got enough to LB the 4* CE as well as another Eli and Mary - NP5 and 4. Also introducing Lancer Vlad to the crew!

Special guest star Orion also made an appearance in a random gold ticket I spent in the previous Thanksgiving Gachas. Neither her nor Vlad will be getting much in the way of XP for a bit, sadly, due to Ishtar and Jeanne Lily needing them. But I am grateful for their appearance, and they will definitely be getting attention when I can get to them!

1622 AP. But Camelot was made of 21 and 22 AP nodes, Babylonia of 22 and 23. Babylonia also seems to have more story-only quests (those without battles). So, it may be equal in length?

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Gamerjunkie on December 01, 2018, 07:32:42 am
here have a massive fukkin infodump on summon stuff

Let’s get the boring shit out of the way first: new Craft Essences.

Spoiler
Demonic Bodhisattva (5*): Start with 50% NP charge, increase NP Overcharge level by 200% on first use. Solid, especially for those servants (like say my shiny new Ishtar or hey look at that Arash) whose NP directly buffs its own damage. Of course, only once, which… in fact works especially well for Arash.

Room Guardian (4*): Increase star absorb (300%), reduce damage taken (-300). Jinako I swear to god if I get as many of you as I did on JP you go DIRECTLY to the incinerator after copy  #11. It’s… an OK CE. Good for squishier servants with low star attraction, like your Avengers! And Berserkers! Admittedly, it’s a flat damage reduction, but hey, HP is HP.

Miracle Investigator (3*): Increase NP damage against Divine Servants by 15%. Yet another very niche 3* CE.

Now for all those cool Servants we get to see!

Spoiler
Enkidu (5* Lancer)
NP: Buster, Single-target, inflict damage, 500% stun chance against Divine enemies, reduce enemy’s defense for 3 turns (Overcharge)
First Skill: Transfiguration: Increase Buster and either Quick or Arts performance (50% chance for either) for 1 turn.
Second Skill: Presence Detection: Reduce one enemy’s critical chance for 3 turns, remove evasion from the enemy (eventual upgrade to give him a dodge too)
Third Skill: Consummated Shape: Heal self, remove debuffs from self
Cards: QQQAB

(i know enkidu is technically genderless i’m not changing it)

TBH it’s been a year and a half since I got him on JP and I still have no idea how I feel about him. He’s not bad, just… a really weird combination of things. Triple Quick cards mean he *can* give a lot of stars if the coin toss on his first skill gives a Quick buff, but I wouldn’t count on that. He’s got SO MUCH HEALTH (like holy shit) and his third skill gives more healing than literally anything else (10K at level 10 like damn). However, he IS lacking a bit in attack power as a result of his billion HP. To quote Persona 5: “Not terrible, but not impressive, either.”


Gilgamesh (4* Caster)
NP: AoE, Arts, increase party defense by 20% for 3 turns, deal damage, reduce enemy defense (overcharge)
First Skill: King’s Return: Increase party star generation for 3 turns
Second Skill: Charisma: Increase party attack for 3 turns
Third Skill: Increase party Arts performance and debuff success rate for 3 turns
Cards: QAAAB

IMPORTANT NOTE THIS MAN IS NOT A DOUCHEBAG LIKE HIS ARCHER FORM IS HE’S JUST AS OVERWORKED AS WAVER HE’S GOT SO MUCH “PAPER”-WORK

CasGil is an excellent party support, especially if you run an Arts team. Even though you’d expect an Arts NP to not have a whole lot of stargen, it hits TEN TIMES per enemy. Combine that with his first skill and you can get a very healthy number of stars to use the next turn. 10/10 good servant.

Medusa (4* Lancer)
NP: Single target, Quick, deal damage with a chance to stun (overcharge)
First Skill: Siren Song: Chance to Charm one male (have fun meli)
Second Skill: Monstrous Strength: Increase own attack for one turn
Third Skill: Affection towards the Beyond: 1 Guts for 3 turns, Invincible for 1 attack
Cards: QQAAB

it’s smol medusa with a ponytail or a hood that makes it look like she has cat ears d’aw she’s cute

Smoldusa is sort of a… lower rarity Scathach. Kinda. Quick NP with a stun, can tank a hit or two if needed, purple hair… Lacks Scathach’s crit buffs, unfortunately, in favor of another stun option (ew charm), but she’s not bad. Pretty good, honestly.

WARNING STORY LOCK TERRITORY NOT REALLY ANYONE YOU WON’T MEET BUT HEY YOU’VE BEEN WARNED
Spoiler
Quetzalcoatl (5* Rider)
NP: Single target, Buster, seal target’s NP for 1 turn, inflict Burn for 5 turns (Overcharge)
First Skill: Charisma: Increase party attack
Second Skill: Good God’s Wisdom: Give 1 ally a guts charge for 3 turns (1000 HP), increase their Buster performance for 3 turns)
Third Skill: Fighting for Freedom: Self crit absorb & damage up, self NP charge
Cards: QAABB

I hope you like wrestling cuz she’s gonna slam your head through the floor. I… haven’t actually used her myself, but she’s got a great kit. Lots of damage with just a bit of survivability (which is also tied to her damage buffs). She’s also a single target Rider, which is excellent. That smile scare me so damn much tho.


Gorgon (4* Avenger)
NP: AoE, Buster, deal damage, charge party’s NP by 10% (15 eventually), Curse for 5 turns
First Skill: Monstrous Strength: Increase attack for 1 turn
Second Skill: Demonic Mutation: Self guts once for 5 turns, crit damage up for 3 turns
Third Skill: Mystic Eyes: Chance to stun one enemy for 1 turn
Cards: QAABB

BIG SNEK is here! And significantly scaler than Medusa and smoldusa! And uh… wings? ANYWAY, tadaa, it’s a useful Avenger that isn’t limited! Admittedly, her crit buff is a bit offset by the fact that she has no star ABSORB like Jalter does. Although both she and Smoldusa have Monstrous Strength, Gorgon’s gives a great big 20% MORE attack than Smoldusa’s version does.

look i’m rolling for her i don’t care what you all do

Taig-uh, JAGUARMAN
NP: Buster, Single Target, ignore Evasion for 1 turn, deal damage, reduce debuff resist for 3 turns (Overcharge)
First Skill: Jaguar PAWNCH: Own Buster up, mental debuff resist up, 2-hit evasion, gain crit stars
Second Skill: Jaguar KICK: Own attack up for 2 turns
Third Skill: Jaguar LOOK: Own crit damage up, on FOREST maps: Own star gen and absorb up
Cards: QQABB

Yes it’s a THIRD Lancer, yes half the servants this chapter are Lancers, but it’s Taiga! In a jaguar costume! And then yes she IS still a mafia granddaughter.

Remember Summer Martha? And Gawain? And their map gimmicks? Yeah it’s another one of those. Anyway, Taiga’s a good Servant, but her biggest problem is uh. Her first skill. It’s got a bazillion things going on, but even at max level, it’s a 10 turn cooldown. Might want to bring a Tamamo along for those skill cooldowns if you plan to use her a lot. Or use the Atlas mystic code. we get a free copy at the end.

i'll make a battle infodump later


So uh. I’d recommend bringing the story support a lot this chapter. It’s Merlin, starting around Chapter 5. For a lot of them anyway. And even MORE broken than what we can eventually summon. Only downside is that some of the earlier Merlin nodes are Rider enemies. Also you should have the Chaldea Lunchtime CE equipped as much as possible because WOW there’s a lot of BP to go around here.


On that note, bond levels will be VERY important for the absolute final battle (coming sometime after Babylonia, probably the week before actual Christmas) so you should totally put your faves in the back line at the very least here.

WARNING POST-BABYLONIA CONTENT SPOILERS IN HERE
The final battle (Actually probably several dozen depending how hard you farm) will grant damage bonuses based on a Servant’s bond level starting at bond 5.

Bond 5: +20%
Bond 6: +40%
Bond 7: +60%
Bond 8: +75%
Bond 9: +90%
Bond 10: +100%

This will be a raid battle like Rashoumon and Onigashima. I know Prisma had its own raid battles, but those were individual things. This will be great big HP totals in the trillions. There will be no CEs to give you great big damage buffs here, only bond levels.

(dee i expect to see a bond 10 astolfo from you when we get there)

So! NPC Merlin has a broken AF NP, which does the following:

Heal party immediately, 5% NP charge on the party per turn (which stacks with Merlin’s own passive 5% per turn), HP regen per turn critical stars per turn which scale with overcharge, become the undying god over all, and turns on the middle finger machine to personally make you cry tears of pure salt because this will never be summonable.

I've broken my notes on Babylonia up by chapters, in case you don't want to accidentally spoil yourself for everything at once.

Chapter 1
Normal battles, not gimmicky

Chapter 2
More normal battle, last node is story only. Merlin is the support in arrow 3. For two waves of wyverns and a big dragon. Proceed with caution.

Chapter 3
Normal stuff continues. Some embers on the first arrow.

Chapter 4
Arrows 1 and 5 have no combat, just story. Arrow 4 has a lot of enemies all in one wave, a mix of Sabers and Lancers.

Chapter 5
Arrow 1 is a fight against just Ushi and Benkei. Arrows 3 and 4 are fights against Jaguarman (though with 2 Chimera waves first in arrow 3), who gains 2 NP charges per turn instead of 1. Straightforward otherwise.

Chapter 6
You like Spriggans? Good because there’s three. On multiple waves. And they’re not all the same class. Hope you didn’t like that health bar anyway.

Arrow 2 is a boss fight against a 2 million HP Enkidu. You aren’t supposed to win, just live for 7 turns and the fight is over.

Chapter 7
More normal stuff, Merlin in arrows 2 and 3. Arrow 3 is a fight against a slightly modified Ishtar. No actual NP firing from her, but she does have a passive defense buff for the entire battle. 

Chapter 8
3 arrows, but only one battle in arrow 2.  And it’s one wave with 3 Riders.

Chapter 9
It begins. Arrow 1 is normal stuff. 2 and 3, uh...  Bring in Tiamat. Arrow 2 is on some sort of timer, not sure how long, but it’s not a winnable fight  because Tiamat has 6 million HP and heals every enemy to full every turn. Arrow a3 you have two choices: Last it out for 15 turns (Mashu and Merlin shine here) or take off half her health. As I remember, you gain NP charge from Tiamat VERY fast when she attacks. AoE attacks with high hitcounts.

Chapter 10
Back to normal for now. Bring a Scathach for arrow 3 iof you can because Ishtar. Ishtar has more passive buffs for the battle (defense and debuff resist up, but NP damage down).

Chapter 11
Welcome to hell, it’s Quetz and her Gawain-like tankiness. Arrow 2 only here. She takes NO damage from Servants with a Good alignment, and half damage from Neutral or Evil Servants. There are exactly 4 Servants who will deal their full damage to Quetz, but I wouldn’t recommend bringing them. Berserker Lancelot, Herc, Nero Bride, and Summer Tamamo. None of them have class advantage, so uh. Elvis please keep your Jack on support. This IS a timed battle, though. It will end a turn after Quetz uses her NP.  No battles in arrows 1 or 4, and 3 is normal stuff.

Chapter 12
OKAY LISTEN THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT ARROW 4 IS ANOTHER BATTLE WITH QUETZ

Before the battle, there will be a dialogue choice that affects how the battle will go. If you attempt to skip it, you get taken to the choice. Option 1, the top option, gives Quetz an attack AND defense buff which is ALSO THE HARDER BATTLE. This one should say something like “try to come to a mutual understanding.”  The second choice, AKA the bottom one, will give her a defense buff only, so your assassins can live a little longer. She also has about 150k less health in this battle. The dialogue choice should say something like “Don’t try to come to a mutual understanding.”

This isn’t even the battle I’m dreading the most.

Chapter 13
...Don’t bring Divine servants in the first arrow, they’ll get stomped by Spriggans with bonus damage against them. Unless that’s all the Archers you have.

Chapter 14
More choices that determine the battle, but these are actually kinda funny. If you bring the support Ishtar, every battle her sprite gets smaller and smaller. Which results in this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjwwRXShaH8 Supposed to be representative of removing articles of clothing (mythological reference or something) but we can’t have nekkid people in dis game. So instead she shrinks. ANYWAY there’s a lot of things here, in arrows 1,2,4,5, and 6. 3 has no choice and 7 is story only.

Arrow 1: First 2 waves of enemies are mostly the same, just some HP changes.

Picking “Ishtar” as your answer before the battle results in a tentacle monster boss.

Picking “Ereshkigal” instead makes it a skeleton. Tentacles have about 20k more health. Both bosses are Lancer class.

Arrow 2: More significant difference here. “Ishtar” answer results in 2 waves of 3 enemies (Assassin ghosts) followed by a Lancer-class golem boss. “Ereshkigal” gives a wave of 2 ghosts, a wave of 1 ghost, and a Lancer-class door boss. One of the ghosts in wave 1 has more health than any of the ones for “Ishtar.”

Arrow 4: First two waves are mostly the same.

“Ishtar:” Wave 3 consists of one assassin Mindless Corpse (86k HP) and a Caesar (150k HP)

“Ereshkigal:” Two spooky ghost girls from KnK (66k HP) and Euryale (100k HP)

Arrow 5: This is the only one I’ll make my personal recommendation on. I highly recommend taking a support Jalter and picking “Ishtar.”

“Ishtar:” One Caster oni (green gate dude from Onigashima), followed by a Ruler mecha-boar from Summer

“Ereshkigal:” 3 low HP skeletons and a big angery Avenger boar boss. We don’t have BB yet, so Avengers are still very much an annoyance. This one also has much more HP than the Ruler.

Arrow 6: Only difference is the HP, really. Lancer-class big ghost. There is a chance for your current front line to receive a debuff at the start of every turn. NP lock, Skill lock, or HP recovery down are the only ones I see.

“Ereshkigal is Not Evil:” 388k HP

“I am not interested:” 310k HP

Chapter 15
  Ok remember how I just said Avengers are very annoying guess what we get to fight two of em here

One is… I think just Gorgon (not the Tiamat Gorgon monster from earlier) in arrow 5 with 612k HP, the other one is Kingu (Enkidu wasn’t Enkidu this whole time) with 606k HP. Kingu can... I think just randomly get more NP charge at the end of his turn.

Chapter 16
Hey look it’s an eldritch abomination i hope you like it we’ll be seeing a lot more from here onwards. Kill this one three times. 

Chapter 17
More abominations. At least they’re still normal classes for now. There’s only one in Arrow 2 and it doesn’t attack you. There’s a story reason for that.

Chapter 18
Finish arrows 1 and 2 AS FAST AS POSSIBLE or you will die quickly.
Arrow 1, bring an AoE Saber with lots of buffing potential.

Arrow 2, just bring AoE Servants. The berserker Ushis will NP EVERY TURN and it’s not like Mordred in Camelot where you can at least have a defensive advantage. These are all single target. They will kill anyone that does not have any sort of invincibility on, or very high defense buffs.

Arrow 3 has no battle.

Arrow 4 is… relatively normal.

Surprise, arrow 5 is Tiamat again. Remember the normal classes? Not anymore, now it’s BEAST class time. Neutral damage entirely, unless you have a bond 10 Angra, which… will not be very effective anyway even with his bond CE. Tiamat (ok, “femme fatale”) does not attack, she will just debuff you at the end of every turn, so you might want someone to clean those. Also Tiamat gets a profile update in the compendium.

No battle in arrow 6.

Chapter 19
No battles at all here.

Chapter 20
Arrow 1, no battle.

Arrow 2, hoo boy. Environmental effects start happening. Here, it’s a mild 300 HP loss at the start of every turn. This CAN kill people that have less health than the HP drain takes, in the event they get hurt enough from enemy attacks.

Arrow 3: Same effect, but 600 HP this time. 

Arrow 4: Same HP drain as arrow 3, BUT at the beginning of battle, your party order is randomized (Earthquake effect), so don’t expect your back line to stay that way. It’s only one enemy here, at least, and still a standard class.

Arrow 5: THIS is what I dread the most. More Ushi fighting, but not Berserker anymore. Now this is “unknown” class (literally just a question mark for the icon) which is neutral to all classes. The Ushi at the start of the battle will spawn a clone right there before your turn occurs. She will do this as long as there are less than 3 total enemies on the field. If you go for the Ushis one by one, KILL THE FRONT ONE FIRST.  Effects here: 1200 HP drain per turn, Earthquake

Arrow 6: Thank god the Ushis are all gone now. Earthquake still, but only one Saber enemy here. 1200 HP per turn.

Arrow 7: Hey you wanna try out Gorgon well here’s your chance because there’s a level 90 NP5 one in story support. Two Saber enemies, no Earthquake, 900 HP per turn.

Chapter 21
Arrow 1: Normal battle

Arrow 2: No battle

Arrow 3: LOOKIT ALL THESE BUFFS WE GET
Okay so here the HP drain jumps up to 3000 at the start of every turn, BUT! The buffs WE get for the remaining battles add 50% attack, -50% damage taken, +50% NP gain, and +10,000 max HP, AND there’s a passive health regen of 4000 at the end of every turn. Merlin is also back for this battle, which offsets the HP drain EVEN MORE. I think this is where he also gets his third skill. You will want to pick the TOP option for the two “unknown” story supports (I think) to have Merlin. The other one is just Smoldusa.

Arrow 4: USE THE DAMN STORY SUPPORT HERE YOU WON’T REGRET IT THAT’S ALL I’M GONNA SAY

ALSO SHIKIS WILL PROBABLY SPEED THIS UP BUT WHY USE THEM WHEN YOU CAN USE THE STORY SUPPORT AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

still 3000 hp lost per turn

Arrow 5: Merlin again on the support!

Tiamat is actively fighting back now. A crit from her targets one person, all her normal attacks hit everyone. She’s also got a lot of potential debuff effects. She can lock any single NP, her normal attacks can add Curse and NP gain down, she can reduce her own damage taken, or give herself another NP charge. Her NP hits all party members, and inflicts Attack/Defense down and buff negate (once). Also she can just clear all the non-permanent buffs from your entire party.

Arrow 6: I advise using the story support. It’s NP5 level 90 Archer Gil with a unique sprite and voice lines that we will probably never see anywhere else. Should still be the same stuff for Tiamat, but the HP drain per turn is now 4000 per turn, for a net gain/loss of 0 HP per turn just from the passive effects.

Chapter 22
Congratulations, you beat Babylonia! Here’s 2 grails, a free Taiga, Mashu’s last ascension and bond 5, and a nice relaxing story-content-only chapter.

Well, looks like my plan's been working. Been automating the entire last node on repeat, so it grinds when I sleep. Gone through 39 of my 103 golden apples so far with more time tomorrow and Wednesday for it. So far I've completed 35 boxes, turned Ishtar to a 9/10/10 level 90 goddess, levelled Jack (and her first skill to level 7 - need Hearts for more), put Tamamo's 3rd skill to level 7, and am now looking at maybe Drake to skill next~

Even better, I've gotten 7 CE drops so I'm running at a personal +5 bonus with whatever caster's bonus on top of the list appears. ^.^

Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order
Post by: Meliran on December 04, 2018, 03:30:02 am
You're going to need to rush, we only have 2 days for it.

You get stockings as drops. You probably have a couple hundred now - you need 4000. The 40 AP node at the end - Blizzard - is the best of the bunch. Holy Night Supper CE increases your drops in any node. You need to run it and then go to "Rewards" and select "roll" under lottery.

The grand prize for the first 4 are gil dolls - these are ascension items for her. You also will get 5 "buche de noelle" each lottery box. Do not reset until you have all 5 of these.

The 5th grand prize is a special ticket. Use this is the shops to buy Jeanne permanently, and then the buche de noelles to buy 4 more copies of her.

You're going to want to do this fast. If you have golden apples, use them. There isn't much time left.

I liked all the servants on this banner, so I decided to roll for it, knowing that I'll be getting some Google Play cards for Christmas. I figured I could probably get Jaguar Warrior at least. First ten roll was nothing notable, oh well, I'll roll a second time. I get Nito for a second time - great, she can do some damage now - and also MLB Prisma, which is my personal favourite CE, and even Jaguar Warrior! Great! And then there's this odd sound... of chanting, shouting, and applause. And a bone-breaking CRUNCH as the Mexican announcer's table is crushed by a mighty suplex!

A maxed (+60% Buster and +20 crit stars) or near maxed out Anniversary Blonde Mystic Code also does a pretty decent job as a Merlin substitute. Or as a substitute for a second or even third Merlin in the party.

BTW, seen Loli Da Vinci (Rider) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7Ld7PkoF3o) in FGO Arcade? The actual gameplay of FGOAC looks like hot garbage, but rollerblading Loli Da Vinci is freaking adorable.

A bit late, but I have been blessed lately by 5*s. I did a 10 roll on the Shinjuku banner, and I got both Archer of Shinjuku and Avenger of Shinjuku, and then on the Chaldea Boys one, another 10 roll netted me not one, but TWO Arthurs. Seems all the low-tier guys are flocking towards my account. Although I do like them so tier doesn't matter~
