Damn, I missed the whole thing. Even though it's like 90% chance I get a dupe SSR, I'm still going to do it. I wouldn't mind NP2 on quite a few of my servants.

For the 10 quartz per clear, what's the deadline? I, like a slacker, have waited on Shinjuku and Agartha so I'm hoping I at least have tomorrow to power through them.
The 10 quartz is for each of the main story singularities. I think you can just claim them at any time once you clear them. Don’t think there’s a deadline from what I am reading.

The stream itself was pretty boring. The first hour was then asking a few voice actors about their trip to AX and talking about the upcoming Babylon anime. Then the last 20 minutes was about the anniversary and summer stuff.

Was there a date on the new summer event yet? I know we get the rerun first.

They just said after the rerun. I don’t remember a specific date. I could have missed it though.

Nice, she's decent and an AoE assassin, which is pretty rare. The bummer is that you are just about to get a free AoE assassin with Summer Scathach. Still, if you get Merlin on the next rate up, Cleo can do pretty well vs. riders which is a pretty common enemy type.

I got Melt NP2 with a bonus Medusa Lily NP2. Alter Egos aren't the best against anything other than Foreigners, which I think is one of the smallest class types only losing to Moon Cancer (which is just BB and her alt). Still, when Skadi drops, and Melt gets her strengthening quest, she'll be pretty strong. I was hoping for Dantes NP2 or my first Karna, if I had to pick something. At least I didn't get Altera or Waver (both at NP5 already).

Threw down 5 tickets and got an anniversary CE with Sherlock. Now I get to put my other party members upgrades on hold because this coke-addict needs his mats and there's never enough QP!

Yeah not to happy about that. There were around half the servants on the list I wanted but I didn’t get one of those. Also tried a few pulls for Sherlock and didn’t get anything good. Oh well. Guess that’s how it goes.

Grats on the two NP2s.

I did the guaranteed 5* pull and got Quetzalcoatl. Not sure how good she is, though. Spent a bit trying to get Sherlock, but no luck. I might do one more pull. It's funny how there are so many servants I don't have (especially 4*) yet I always get the same stuff over and over. P Pejo I think Alter Egos are damn awesome. I was able to finish Camelot with them. Melt does some serious damage and I don't even have her level capped yet. Glad I got her. Gotta get PassionLip (name?) built up, though.

Doing these Paul Bunyan quests, but damn, they're so boring and not all that much fun.

Holy shit, you beat Camelot? Congrats! That was a huge mental hurdle for you, for quite a while. Quetz is great and can Buster buff anyone on the team, which is always handy. I don't use her a lot since I have NP3 Ozy, but she's still great for caster bosses.

I enjoyed the 4th wall breaking of the Bunyan story so far, though for some reason every time Edison joins the story I just feel like skipping it. I'm not sure what it is about him specifically, maybe he's just too one-note.

How are you faring on the challenge quests?

I hit 100 days old. This is my squad so far:
Nice, even grailed Suzuka. That's a pretty good start. Emiya is really good now that he's had a few strengthening quests, but unfortunately you missed a better version of him (Chloe) that was a welfare last year. That event eventually will come back. Don't forget to also build up Euryale (3* archer) and Arash (1* archer) eventually, as the former is great versus some really tough fights and the latter is the farming god.

For grails, I'm always so torn. I instantly grailed Cu Chulainn to 90 since he's my favorite Fate character, but I haven't used another grail since. I'm sitting on quite a few right now. I really like the value you get by grailing low rarity servants as opposed to taking level 90 servants to level 100. It's always nice to have that extra cost for CEs on harder content. If I could ever manage to pull Bedivere dupes to get him to NP5 I'd grail him next, but I've had awful luck trying to get any dupes for him since he's only in the pool on the story summon (awful decision to pull from) and other limited banners.

I figured I would just use my grails on 4 star servants that I like, even if they are not the best. I thought about doing Raikou, but the two level increase per grail doesn’t seem like as much value.

I started Camelot recently but haven’t had much time to read through the story so I’ve mostly just been doing quick dailies. I noticed a pretty big difficulty increase and everything has tons of HP. I did just beat Gawain, which I hear is one of the harder fights. I’m on chapter 5 now. I might pump more xp cards into Euryale since I hear she is helpful for Camelot. I haven’t hit a wall just yet though.

Yea Gawain is one of the fights I was talking about. You have to fight him a few times in the Camelot story, the harder ones come later. The sword knights (regular enemy) are going to be one of the biggest challenges with your team, because they have a tendency to buff their ATK/DEF multiple times per turn and basically become invincible and hit like trucks. Don't ever leave one of those by itself as the last enemy if you can help it, so they don't get multiple actions per turn.

After Camelot, I feel the difficulty actually lessens quite a bit on average, with less gimmick fights being the main reason. Camelot/Babylonia/Solomon are regarded as some of the best written stories in the game, so if you care about that I wouldn't rush it.

Also, if you need any particular servants and CEs as friend units to clear content, don't hesitate to ask.

If you can clear Camelot, Babylon shouldn't slow you down any.

Some of the fights in the 8th singularity might make you use some command spells though.

I've grailed some of my 5* but nothing past level 94 yet.

Thinking about grailing my Tamano Cat to help with farming. I use her and Raikou.

I managed to get Sherlock with all the free quartz they're tossing us and still have some left over for the summer banners! Still need Tamano Lancer, Mordred Rider, and Kiyohime Lancer from last year... Do I try for them again or focus on the new ones...?

On the last GSSR, I pulled a Saber Lancer, NP2.

On this GSSR, I had about 1/4 chance of getting a new 5*. I pull Saber Lancer again, NP3...

Funny on the hate for Edison. I still haven't pulled him yet!

I'm always wondering who to use these grails on, but I can never decide so I'm sitting on a bunch of them. Up until this point, I've only used a grain on Artoria Alter. She does so much damage, I figured a bit more power couldn't hurt and she's my only Artoria...unfortunately. I've put a lot of resources into her, but it's been more than worth it as she's carried me through many events up until now. Not sure what I'll do going forward, though. I don't use 3* or lower servants unless I have to so I'm not gonna invest in any of them at this point.

I did one more pull and still didn't get Sherlock. I don't know if I should try again, because I want to hold out for a possible Summer banner with Surfer Mordred and Archer Artoria. I hope we get that event to come back. Will probably have to throw down some cash on that one.

Kinda agree about Edison, too. I hate his dialog and his character looks dumb. Same with Geronimo. Americans get no love in this game. Heh, heh.

Will probably start Babylon next week. Getting through Camelot took a lot of effort. I just want to relax now.

Summer rerun starts on Friday, so you better stop spending quartz, lol. It lasts til the end of the month though, so you have time. I was actually a little bummed that the rerun lasts so long, I want the new summer banners already.

I still use Artoria Alter saber for all of my lancer AoE'ing needs. I have Altera NP5 who has more attack yet Artoria shits on her from space damage wise. It's crazy how strong her NP is.

I like Geronimo as a character, but his skills are just terrible. Which American servants are there? Edison, Geronimo, Bunyan, Billy the Kid, and Lobo are the only ones I can think of.

I wouldn't worry about not getting Sherlock. He's probably one of the most niche servants in the game. Really he's only good for a crit Arts team, which seems to be limited to Squirtoria and Lancelot. The hoard until Summer 2 is going to be tough with all the free quartz we were just gifted. Luckily I already have what I want from Summer 1, so I just need to farm materials on this rerun.

I think Tamamo Cat was my first 4*. I got Jean my first 10 pull ever. They got me through some tough times at the beginning.

Cat is 1 of only a couple AoE Berserkers so she's useful!

My ember farming team is Raikou with a kscope, Tamamo cat with a kscope, and a merlin.

Is there a way to horde more XP cards? It looks like my box is capped at 300. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen screenshots of people with more cards stashed then that. I figured it would be good to build those up while dailies are cheap.

If we're talking stacks of ALL-type cards, I usually try to stack as much of that into one slot as I can in the present box. But if it's already in the servant archive box, I don't usually worry about keeping them.

You can use the second archive to store an additional 100 cards. I keep all of my fou cards in there. You can find it in Menu->Formation->Second Archive.

*Edit* you can also increase the size of your second archvie by using mana prisms. 5 slots for 50 prisms.

There’s a Jeanne and Sherlock banner today. Jeanne is one of my favorite characters and my credit card is still linked from the GSSR. I ended up buying one of the $80 quartz packages and didn’t get a single
thing I would use. $80 isn’t a big deal for me, but I can see how people get lured in to blowing tons of money. Anyways, I unlinked the CC and back to f2p!

I hope you stay firm. There was recently an article about practices that gacha games use to get people spending, and it's straight up diabolical. Once you break the F2P threshold for a player, something like 87% of all players will start spending again because now you have sunk cost fallacy and there is monetary value associated with the account. I've bought quite a few of the 80 dollar packs in my time with the game. The first Dantes banner was a real eye opener for me, spent way too much trying and failing to get him. Now I set hard limits. I've been pretty lucky, honestly, but it just makes spending all the more tempting when I'm eventually NOT lucky.

How are you guys doing on the challenge memorial quests? I breezed right through the first set and unlocked the Saber Alter node last night. I'm pretty sure I can double Waver my way through that fight, but those damn break bar fights always intimidate me. I wish the player got some sort of bonus or buff for hitting a break point instead of just letting the enemy take a shit on you with an instant NP most times.

I'm back up to 200+ quartz for summer part 2 banners. If I'm estimating correctly, if I do all of the FQ's and the two singularities I haven't done yet by the time it drops I should be well over 300. Not a ton of quartz but a fairly good chance to pick up some of the 4* servants and hopefully get lucky with a 5*.

I did all the memorial quests but the last one. A lot of effort for 1 ticket.

My servant second archive is all fou. I've probably got around 200 of each of the standard fou in my present box.

My CE 2nd archive is permanently full and I'm lucky to have 40-50 open slots. My refusal to combine event CE when I know there will be a rerun and is better to keep them separate.

I've got around 58 SQ saved after the Sherlock banner for summer. That will last 5 seconds while I try and get Tamamo Lancer. :/

Remember to save your extra welfare servants untill the Xmas 2019 event. After that, you can burn them for Rare Prisms people say.

Edit: Down to 8 servants that I have that need max ascended. 1 is waiting on prize shop items from the Summer rerun. Missing less than 20. Realized I have every saber in the game.

Tossed what little quartz I had left at the Tamamo banner along with some summoning tickets. Just wanted a few of the new CEs. Ended up doing pretty good. I got each of the new CEs, Assassin of the Nightless City, Caster Gilgamesh ANNNND Tamamo .... Berserker.


Edit:
Got a saint quartz from the first summer quest and decided to use it to try one last single pull for good luck. Got this:

Woot! Summer banner is here. Too bad I spent too much on trying to get Sherlock (I love those stories so I wanted to have him). No luck, though. My goal now is to spend what I have on trying to get Archer Artoria and Surfer Mordred. Anything else is just gravy.

Oh, and congrats JORMBO JORMBO for getting Tamamo. That's lucky.

That's the RNG life right there. At least Drake's pretty awesome. She's my go-to caster clear AoE servant, and makes farming doors super easy.

I wrapped up the story for Summer 1 just using a few of the apples I got along the way. Picked up 5 wine bottles incase I luck out and get Caster Nero next month. Won't have much quartz to pull. I'm farming embers now while the dailies are cheap to level Tamamo then I need to go back and grab the Ascension items for Scathach and whatever else I want.

Just need a hime lancer and I'm good on both summer rerun banners.

The wait for Summer 2 is killing me. I am sitting on a lot of quartz right now and some NP2 servants are starting to look pretty good, but I'm staying strong. Hopefully you luck out on Kiyo lancer. I really wish I had her to NP2 or 3, to make her slightly more usable. As of now, Scat is so much better with double Waver than Kiyo with double Merlin. That gap will only grow as soon as Skadi is released. I love Kiyo's designs though. I actually like all 3 ascensions.

What's Summer 2? Isn't that just a continuation of the last Summer event? Or are they doing a completely new thing this year?

Cool that you guys were able to get the Summer servants. At this point I haven't gotten any except Summer Scath and only because she was free. I pulled so hard trying to get Surf Mordred and Watergun Artoria with no luck. I'd like to get Fist Martha, too, but I doubt I can do all of these things with the SQ I have left. Just gotta hope for the ones I want. I'm kinda curious, but are all of the Summer units in the banner and just two of them have their drop chances increased, or are only those two in the pool?

For the summer pulls, the 5* is rate up each day but the 4* have separate days they have a rate up. Right now, all 4* have a rate up but soon they will each have their own days. Then the final days will have all 4* rate up.


Last year, I only got the pirates, Marie, Martha NP3, and squirtoria. Waiting for kiyo day to pull again.

Damn, I didn't realize the 1/2 AP and bonus success rate ended yesterday, I was planning on burning some apples farming XP cards before it was over.

Also, I'm not sure if anybody is planning on skipping the rerun of the current summer event, but there's a new quest to get a costume for Mash, so you might want to do it.

Thanks for the info, guys. OH DAMN, Artoria Alter Rider looks badass. No way I'm getting her, but I'm gonna try. Don't care about Nero caster, because her sprites look bad.

After finding out that Surfer Mordred was in the current banner, I used a couple of tickets and got her! Woot! My first Summer unit. Now to wait until Watergun Artoria comes out so I can burn what I have for her. Not sure I want to burn everything now, since I know that 5* Artoria Alter Rider is around the corner. No way I'm getting both, so I should probably pick one and put my effort there.

Also, I assume that Swimsuit Istar is the free servant for the second Summer banner?

Damn, I didn't realize the 1/2 AP and bonus success rate ended yesterday, I was planning on burning some apples farming XP cards before it was over.

Also, I'm not sure if anybody is planning on skipping the rerun of the current summer event, but there's a new quest to get a costume for Mash, so you might want to do it.
I burned a lot of apples on the 1/2 AP before the summer rerun started. No reason to ever skip events. Prize shops are always too good to pass up.

Thanks for the info, guys. OH DAMN, Artoria Alter Rider looks badass. No way I'm getting her, but I'm gonna try. Don't care about Nero caster, because her sprites look bad.

After finding out that Surfer Mordred was in the current banner, I used a couple of tickets and got her! Woot! My first Summer unit. Now to wait until Watergun Artoria comes out so I can burn what I have for her. Not sure I want to burn everything now, since I know that 5* Artoria Alter Rider is around the corner. No way I'm getting both, so I should probably pick one and put my effort there.

Unless they're rerunning this event next year, I would focus on getting the ones you want from this event first. I don't know how many times they rerun events.

Just finished the prize shop!

Edit: Just rolled 360 SQ for Kiyohime... Got 218 mana prisms and 1 rare prism for my trouble....

Edit: 60 more SQ and she finally came home... Now to start saving for the next summer banners... ;_;

I hear there will be a JAlter banner around New Years. I am debating saving all my quartz after Summer 2 for that. There’s also a Musashi and King Hassan banner between then too. Choices!

(It probably doesn’t actually matter since I’ll end up failing to roll any of them :p )

There are quite a few attractive banners in between summer and JAlter, IMO. I really want the round 2 of ninjas (with Tomoe), Abby/Sheba, Hokusai. There's also the Camelot pickup which I really don't want to pull on, but I can never get any NP copies of Bedivere, so it's lingering in the back of my mind.

Man, I have absolutely no motivation for these rerun events. I haven't even been burning AP on this summer rerun, despite wanting some of those mats in the shop. I think story is what keeps me going in Fate, and it's just no fun once I've already seen it. I even rebuilt my island on the first run of this one to see all the cutscenes, so I'm having a real hard time doing it all again. I'll power through it for the SQ though, one of these evenings. I have stupid amounts of apples that I always plan to use and never do.

If you skip all the cutscenes you can probably power through it all really quickly. Gathering the mats is really quick if you have the CEs you may have gotten last year still. I cleared out most of the first shop but am probably going to lose steam when clearing out the second one. I got the few items I want though.

I should probably stick to pulling on event banners. I got Raikou and Tamamo without spending much. I dropped one summon ticket on the Mordred and Kyohime banners for fun and ended up getting Mordred. I don't have much use for her at the moment, but for one summoning ticket I'll take her. Anytime I pull on regular rate up banners I always get nothing but three star or less trash :p

My main goal is Nero. I'll probably end up with someone else though. I think she shares her banner with Nobu, Fran, and Nito.

Since I haven’t leveled a caster yet I have tons of caster gems. I also have around 400 embers and all Nero’s ascension mats. Since I have all that ready I probably won’t pull Nero.
