You have to pick up CE's from the mailbox for some reason, but yea most of it goes directly to your inventory.

How many points are you guys at so far? I'm at around 300k as of this morning. I just need 1 more skull and 1 more CE, then it's down to farming points and mats for the rest of the event.

I just got pass 400k with 2 skulls left. Now I'm farming the 20AP quest until a better 40AP one become available (edit: which should be later today).

Bought out the hearts, going to go for the rest of the quests now.

The new Rider quest is a fair bit harder than previously, Drake can spam Golden Rule twice or so per turn and her NP basically wipes your team. I ran it with Waver, Support Okita + Heracles to kill her quickly.

My team for the rider quest is Jeanne, Stheno & Carmilla, Just have to charge up Jeanne's NP before Drake uses hers and let the two assassins poke Drake to death. The drop is pretty good too, so I'm gonna burn apple on this.

Rider quests are always tough for me since I like Waver for harder content and the assassin pool right now is pretty shallow. Carmilla is nice but until recently those snake eye orbs were impossible to farm. Wish we'd get her animation update early though.

Anyways, I'm sticking to farming the berserker 40AP now that I cleared the CEs and skulls from the lower mats. I might stray into the one with the dragon for a bit to see if I can land some random reverse scales, but overall I'll just do new quests for the one-time rewards and back to zerkers.

I'm also using a full event party which is killing my overall party strength with:

Cu - level 90, my MVP
Emiya - level 60
Friend Okita/Nobu

Then my backline sucks with:
Medusa - level 40
Nobu - level 1
Okita - level 30 something, ran out of xp cards

Anyone know what's the best way to farm for the mats for the event? I'm getting a depressing amount from doing the 40 AP quest and even then the stupid Hells Guardian really likes to kick my ass constantly. I had to refresh last night for the first time since the Guardian killed two of my top damage dealers when fighting him. Need to find a better way of taking him out. Even so, I feel like the trouble I go through with that fight isn't worth what I get out of it. There has to be a better way. I thought the Halloween event paid out better than this. I have no idea how I'm gonna get Nobunaga to 70 at this rate.

You should have 4 different 40AP quests available to you by now, berserker, saber, assassin, and rider. Other ones are opening up either today or tomorrow. If you have a particular class you're strong against, maybe it'd be easier than the zerker one for you. Like if you've been leveling Nobu, you can do pretty well on the saber stage with Nobu + friend Nobu + another archer or any neutral class.

I still think berserker one is the easiest though, since they take double damage and I run a mostly evade heavy team of Emiya, Cu, and friend Okita.

I tried the Saber one last night and got thrashed. Had to use a SQ to continue even though I had three archers. That dumb as Dragon is a pain in the ass since it hits everyone and does 1000+ damage per hit. No way any character can hold up against that. Then having to fight Caesar who has 150k HP is crazy. I remember that being easier the first time I did it. Thinking about it, the berserker one is probably the easiest. That silly Hell Guardian can take out one unit in on shot if it crits and that's just a roll of the dice. But still I have a better shot at finishing that on than the others. I can't Ascend Nobunaga because I can't get enough mats to get her past 40. Man, I'm REALLY not feeling this event.

Gotcha. Yea this event is probably unkind to new-ish players a bit. My Cu can probably get close to soloing the berserker one if you use the white master equipment and time your evades/heals/guts usage. I can frequently 1 round the Chimera with him if I get lucky enough for him to have a brave chain in that round and the CE buff still up. Who are your strongest servants right now, and what are the levels?

My highest character is Zhuge and he's level 63. After that I have Emiya at 60 and Artoria Alter at 60. Halloween Elizabeth is at level 50. Everyone else is 40 or lower. I generally get carried by friend units.

You know what sucks. I did a 30 pull yesterday on the banner and got another Zhuge. Ugh. I mean, I don't have any of the other 5* units and I get that one. Man, this game hates me.

Ouch yea, he doesn't even have a damage based NP, so that's kinda a wash in your situation. Still, having your own Waver is a huge bonus so you can grab a strong damage character and pump up their NP. Having all 3 of Waver's skills is really important though, and I think you'd only have 2 at that ascension rank. It might be worth it to spam a few apples to level him up and buy the mats to get that 3rd one. Then your Emiya or Artoria become waveclear units at only 50%NP.

I just ended up merging the new Zhuge with the old one. Getting close to 200 of the bomb things, but man, this whole thing sucks and they even added two more really hard fights today. I wonder who can actually do those.

The good thing is that I'm up to 250,000 points. No way I'm getting over 1 mil before this is over, but if I can get far enough, I'll be fine.

I think you could do the lancer quest with your Zhuge and Saber Alter plus a strong saber support with Poster Girl CE. Stick Mash, Benkei and Leonidas or St.George at the back row for extra protection in case Zhuge dies. That should be fine, I think...

Different enemies drop different things, skeletons give bones, centaurs give horseshoe, chimeras give chaos talon and so on. The 40AP quests even have pretty good drop rate for those mat, too.

Quick reminder - the Lancer and above quests have the potential to drop double of the black landmine looking things than the early quests, so it's smart to farm your lower tier materials first. The Archer one drops up to 24-ish landmine things whenever it comes out, if you can clear it.

I'm personally waiting for the Caster one because you can farm hearts and snake eye orbs from it.

Imma farm the hell out of that one too, need so many snake eyes :s though if you convert the mat drop to gumo, then I think all 40AP quests have pretty good value. Using natural AP regen and one apple, I got 5 talons from the lancer quest, thats 200 gumo right there.

The paid gacha thing is "meh" for me since I have all of the servants anyways, but it'll be nice if I can NP2 one of the damage ones, preferably Okita or Drake. Just hoping not to get Artoria or Waver, honestly.

I think I'll burn my quartz on the Scat/Gil split banner. I don't really want Scat that much so I don't mind the split rates to NP2 my Gil if I get lucky.

They gave us another 10 SQ and I decided to pull again. Of course, I got a whole lot of nothing. Heh, I don't even know why I bother with this game, honestly.

Oh well, I'm only missing one of the skulls, so my Nobunaga can go to level 70. Trying to get the last one before the event is over, but I don't think I can do it. It would be awesome if I could get her to 80. Pretty cool, though. I wish I wouldn't have screwed up on Elizabeth....

Today's gold mission got me over 100,000 event points!

What items should I focus on in the shop after CE and skulls? I've been farming the 40AP lancer quest so I don't have many of the blue item.

If you want the blue plate (not sure what it's called), you have to farm the lower end ones. I was farming the 20AP Saber, Berserker, Rider one and was able to get a bunch to finish that off. Now I'm doing the 40AP Berserker quest to get more of the black plate things to I can get that last skull. Not sure if I'm gonna make it, though.

Really it depends on your servants, but overall - hearts, claws, pages probably.

I don't have a good enough saber crew to handle that one. I'll just be going to my death. I might give it a shot later and just not go for the major bonus.

I'm hoping for Tamamo no Mae, while my please-don't-appear-list includes Waver, Vlad and Orion, though I'd be happy with whoever that come. Except Vlad, his art just doesn't feel right to me.

I may drop a ten pull for Scat as well, I want that sweet 2030 for my Proto Cu.

I got Zhuge Liang so I didn't do much better I think.

Saving my SQ for when Gil drop rate is up. I only have enough for 1 more summon.

Are there any more mystic codes besides the one you start with yet?

With tomorrow's gold quest, I should have 1.5m event points. Just need to stock up on the event items for the shop...

We got a limited time quest for a second one a few months ago, but it sucks pretty bad, you're not missing much.

I've maxed out the 1.5 mil a few days ago, so it's nice to be able to use whichever servants I want to speed up farming. Going to burn a few apples tonight to clear out the gears and pages, might do horse shoes too, depending on how burnt out I am after that.
