Fate/Grand Order |OT| That’s Hell You’re Walking Into

Okay, didn’t know if I had to manually obtain them or not. Thanks.
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.
 
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.

Which 40AP are you doing?
 
Are there multiple ones? I'm doing the berserker one. Damn, that one hurts a lot, but I keep hoping I can get something good out of it.
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.
 
Are the farmable prizes different between the different 40AP quests or are just the enemies different?

I've been farming the saber one with a Jean and borrowed gil. Rest I have aren't worth much.

I got 3 CE's from this one too so my one CE earns 60% points.

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.
 
Yeah Nobbu and Okita CEs are exp fodder for other CE.
Anyone excited for Thanksgiving event? Aniplex got us good lol
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....
 
I managed to get the 5 star Saber from the current servant pull from my 2nd pull using free SQ.

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.

which one of the skulls do you still need, one of the black landmine ones?

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

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.
 
Bleh, guaranteed 5* gave me Waver NP2, one of the only 2 I didn't want.

2 10 rolls of Free Quartz and some tickets on the Scat banner and I got the 3* and 4* CE's, Diarmud, and Carmilla/Atalanta. I'm out of Quartz for the time being, so I guess that's that.

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.
 
Just in case there is another JP player here:

Don't forget the 11m DL login. You need all 7 logins to get the 10 tickets (and some nice 3* Fou).

__________________________

Xmas 2016 is the fourth time I miss a Legendary Crystal (fourth event since starting) due to not having finished Part 1 story.

I'm still in the middle of the 8th chapter. I was trying to finish it so I can get the added challenge battle in Xmas 2016 Return, but won't make it. I was a bit happy that I can now relax and do the last part without hurrying.

Then, out of nowhere
11m DL campaign: Hi, anyone who is finished with Part 1 by before Nov 29 will get 30 crystals!

gg >___>

P.S. If there's still JP players out there, and has a maxed out bond Hercules, please friend me.

I really wanted to take my time and do the last part on my own, but this fucking "hey, you can't get this rare item if you don't finish part 1" bullshit has been really annoying me.
 
I was lucky enough to get all of the important stuff from the event. Now I have to collect a crap-ton of EXP cards to get my folks leveled up. The sad part is that I STILL can't break the cap for Emiya. Gonna have to do some research to see what I need to do in order get him to the next level. I wish I had a tough 5* servant, but alas. There's no way I'm paying those bastards for a 5* guarantee pull. Screw them.

man, I kinda want to roll the pay gacha but it is so expensive, does anybody here knows if there are some black friday deals on google play credits (digital key) :S
The only deal I saw so far was Family Dollar having Google and PlayStation Credit for 15% off. Other than that, normally, Target puts SOME kinda of credit on sale for Cyber Monday.

Got Attila while pulling for the new lancer.

My first 5 star!
Congratulations! People seem to act as if she's a consolation prize, but I really want to get her, especially after playing Fate Extella.

And... they refuse to give her to me, lol. My first 5* was Drake during Okeanos release. And now, after pulling for Okita, Atilla Rate-ups, and on the guaranteed 5 star pull... Drake is now NP3. No other 5*s dare approach... (O.O;)
