If you really want to settle in for the long-game and go with the best possible start, Waver (Zhuge Liang in the tier list) and 4* Emiya would be the best possible start. Ideally, you'd want Heracles from the tutorial pull, choose Emiya from the Facebook reward, and roll Waver. Those three would do you a long time, well into endgame.

Also, can I get on the Mashu Love Train?

OK cool, thanks for clarification.

I might start watching Fate/Stay today with my wife. And I am also interested in that Fate Musou game on PS4.

Not to worry, just download the APK directly off the web or via QooApp or APKPure. It's available in the latter right now. But you need to search "Fate/Grand Order (English)" exactly (no quotation marks, obviously) to get it in your search results.

Just be warned that the first anime is a bit of a mess from trying to tie together elements of all three routes of the visual novel (the VN still effectively being the best way to experience the original story, but it's still a daunting read), though I guess it's not bad. Unlimited Blade Works is significantly stronger (more interesting character development for the main character, incredible fight scenes, better overall visuals and more consistent tone, etc), but it's probably more worth watching after Fate/Zero, though that in itself is spoileriffic for stuff I'm pretty sure doesn't even show up in the first F/SN anime, nevermind UBW.

As an EU person myself: it loads fine. Whether we'll be blocked server-side when it launches is a different issue.

Funny thing is, Artoria would be viable for the Caster class, but she lacks the patience to actually learn magecraft, and, well, she's a bit snobbish about it. She makes up for it by basically being immune to all but the most extremely powerful forms of magic.

That, and considering she knows Merlin all too well, I guess she just thought it was a bad idea. Not that I blame her, mages are generally assholes in this setting.

UMU. Hopefully I actually get Jeanne in this version smh.


Edit: Also if you have a specific servant in mind that you want to get, I.E. Nero, it's better to wait for a rate up gacha than using your quartz on the story one.

Waver is a 5* and people mean using the free quartz at the start to roll for him. The free tutorial roll is for 4* Servants only, of which Emiya is one. They are two separate things.

Edit: And you cannot get Iskandar (at least the adult version of him) in the game yet until like a year in or whenever they hold the Fate/Zero event.

Watch Fate/Zero and if you crave for more, watch Unlimited Blade Works though it's not as good. Fate/Apocrypha starts in a few days too.

Think this might be the first smartphone game I'll play since nothing's come of Final Fantasy XI yet (plus I love me some Fate).

Got it downloaded and ready to go so I guess it remains to be seen what happens when I try to connect from the UK once it goes live.

Any suggestions who to roll for as a beginner? Go for Nero, you say? Great, that's exactly what I wanted to hear.

Are all 5* servants available right away? I though I read somewhere that you need to complete Story chapters and events first before they're added in the gacha pool. Because if they're available right away, I'm gonna reroll for Illya.

I think only Heaven's Feel (3 movies) is important, but they're not out yet. First Order is like a big ad to this game, you can watch it if you want, it's not connected with anything and it's sort of mediocre.

Nah, some are story locked, and others are only available during special events. You'll have to wait for the Kaleid event to get her and that's going to be in a year or so.

So uh, is there a list of available 5* that are not locked? Don't know if I want to reroll if majority of them are locked. Might as well proceed with the 4* characters that I get from the beginning.

Hmm so how important is rerolling into 5*? Is it do or die like FEH or nice bonus but not needed ?

Also are there any competitive events where score matters ?

It really doesn't matter. At this point just finish stay/night then watch zero and you'll get a lot of clarification on things.

Its not important. At all. All servants are usefully (well at least 3 to 5 stars. Hard to say about 1 and 2 stars). There are no required servants to clear story/events. Most 3 starts will have some sort of boosts on events too.

No PVP. No Ranks. No competitive events at all. Pure single player experience. You can make your team with yours servants. No need to check tier lists or team building guides.

This sounds great. My biggest problem with most gacha games are the tier-lists and the huge amount of useless characters.
