God damn farming this event is shit. Who's idea was it to give 350k+ HP to a boss on the 3rd wave of a stage you have to farm like 200 times. Why would they do this? It's not difficult since they're usually single typed stages, it just takes for fucking ever when you can't 3-round it. This might be my least favorite even since the first Sanzang event.

*edit* and while I'm bitching - what the fuck were they thinking giving almost every boss a low hp evade or guts skill. God dammit.
There are attack boost event CE in the shop and getting enough points will give you an increasing attack boost as you continue the event.

On another note, I had 3 tickets and got a 2nd copy of Sitonia on the 3ed one!

Genshin has been taking over my life. :/ AR 26...

I hope one of the CEs at least has 50% np charge then. I was able to get a 3-turn on the candy corn node, but I need to pray I get lucky on Gil's cards for it to happen.

I basically no-lifed Genshin for a week or two, but now I'm only left with doing dailies and burning my resin slowly to level my characters, it's really gotten dull honestly. Can't wait for 1.1.

It's a bit annoying but using the event ce with buffs to quick/arts/buster you can pretty much one-shot the boss.

How many turns is a typical run for you with the event CE?
9 more or less if rng bad with the cards or around 6 if good and that is because I am maximizing the drops so I have no choice but to use stuff like Ibaraki and Billy the kid. I could prob do in less turns with my best servants tho. That said I am not actively seeking to 3 turn the event but if you do find a way, lemme know.

Raid time fellas. I got down to 200k HP left on the level 90 one with sitonai and shuten caster (both level 1) in my party. It took for fucking ever though, so I'll probably just stick to the lvl 80 fight for now. What's your setup and which stage are you guys running?

I just use Musashi, Merlin, Merlin, Waver on the highest raid. NP does almost 2 million fully buffed.

Yea since hitting 400% bonus damage on the CE, I use your Skadi, my own Skadi, and Artoria (Rider (Alter (Summer))), and I can 1 shot the level 90 one if I get a Brave chain. I went from like 200k points to 1.8 million just this afternoon, lol. I usually miss the raids entirely on these events, so I'm glad I had a bunch of time to play this time. After the raid is done, I'll only need to farm some of the shop currency and I'll be done. I much prefer farming the 1 boss, 1 round raids than the stupid 5-9 turn normal stages. I still think they're assholes for making the farming stages with such inflated HP and low HP avoidance skills like guts and evade.

Now this is pod racing:


And my Alter/Skadi skills aren't even maxed yet. This might be the first time I had fun grinding the same things over and over in this game.

Where do we get the grail from this event? The gamepress guide shows that there's a grail attainable but I don't see which quest it's from. I just beat the story and unlocked Shuten permanently, but I don't remember getting a grail.

It is from the last quest. Are you sure you didn’t click through it? It comes right before Shuten.

What you guys gonna get for the upcoming 4 stars select ticket? I'm thinking about Tristan because he's one of the more elusive story-locked servants.

Between Herc (new) and Tomoe (np4) for me. I'd like to get Tomoe to NP5 one day.

Bond10 Herc pretty much destroyed all of Solomon chapter for me and then I never used him again.

I really liked the mechanic that the higher the bond level, the stronger the servants got. I wish they'd do something else like that, but just in general. Like bond level affected stuff like even NP gain, crit dmg, etc - if not flat out damage bonus.

Ye what saved me in solomon was a friend's bond 10 Herc. Anyways I find getting repeat servants a bit boring lol but it's a valid option.
If I were to get it though it would prob be another zerkerlot to bump his np to 3.

Shit, did I miss the solo Cuzerker banner? I'd like to try to get him to NP2, it's been nagging me a long time considering I use him in a lot of Challenge Quests.

Cuzilla was solo way back when Murrica Singularity was released. If you wanted more of him, you should have rolled for him then...

But now you can at least have NP5 Medb going for more Cuzilla and that's just as good right? :messenger_blowing_kiss:

That's when I got him originally. I wasn't in to NP2'ing servants at that time though. I think he gets a solo banner (as in not sharing with Medb) sometime in this event.

*edit* - just checked, he's solo rate up from 11/6-11/8 and 11/12-11/14. Cool.

Pulled on the 12m banner. Managed a 4th copy of Nightless city Caster... Next 10 roll had an Enkidu spook!

I now officially have every servant in the game!

Oh and I got 1 copy of Abby so got her to NP2.

Leaning towards Nito for the ticket to get her to NP4.

You guys buying Tea Time? I'm right around 5000 prisms, not sure if it's worth it, but usually bond farming CEs are good....

*edit* oh hell yea, you can now summon gold and the new SSR gold XP embers from FP summon. Guess who's burning through about 4 million FP over the next week or so. Hope I finally get NP2 Angry Man

Hmm, so I've been looking at my NP levels of characters I like and use, and I'm now torn between getting Wu or Artoria (Lancer (Alter)). They both got NP upgrades, but I haven't unlocked Wu's yet. Wu also gets a strengthen I think at the next batch that gives her an on demand buff block and 30% def down. I already have Jack at NP2 though, so I'm wondering if I'd ever use her despite the upgrades. Then With Artoria I have the 5* Lancer Artoria also at NP2, so I'm not sure that's a necessary upgrade either. She only does one thing and that's big willy Lancer waveclear, and the NP boost would help her do that even better....

What would you guys pick out of those 2? Both NP1 to NP2.

Nice, my 3rd roll:



NP2 Danzo and Cuzilla. Saving up for NP2 Brad next. I think I have a month or two, and I still have all the free quests in the LBs to clear as well almost all of the pseudo singularities besdies Shimousa.

Man, my luck in FGO has been pretty wild the last few events. Got Summer Kiara a few months back with free SQ/tickets, spent some for Himiko but got two of her and Okita with a ton of paid SQ to spare, and the. On a whim, I used my 10 tickets i saved during the Christmas rerun and got Yang in the current JP banner.

I ain't gonna get shit the next few months probably lol

I went with Wu NP2 upgrade with my ticket, didn't realize her upgraded NP did buff removal, she's got a really solid kit after upgrades. If only her NP generation wasn't so shit, but still seems like a worthy pick.

Great Value Waifus, 3 in 1 Spirit Origin! What a deal!

and in classic Takeuchi fashion the poses and faces are nearly identical. Even mostly identical to Jeanne's too.

Nice, I thought about her but ultimately stuck with my original plan of getting Tristan. I'm satisfied, his final ascension is pretty cool.

NP2 5* is a hell of a drug, innit?

Aren't we supposed to be able to start selling event welfare servants for Rare Prisms on this update? I've been holding on to all of my dupes for a few years now, it'll be nice to unload them.

I think it only applies to after you earn them after this update. You keep the extra copy and the RP goes to your gift box.

I forgot about this event since new consoles just launched. I hate passing up easy gold gems. I have managed to do 5 boxes so far. I may try to grab a few more.

I see the Heaven's Feel part 3 movie ended up hitting theaters this week. Good to see things are finally moving there again since that means the bluray should come out around Spring next year. I've been wanting to see how that ends for a long time now! I read the visual novel up to where part 2 ends, but didn't want to spoil the movie so I stopped there.

I haven't even touched the event. Been too busy with other games, so I've just been doing ember quests to burn AP. Was this another lotto? I couldn't even remember.

Yeah it is a lotto. I didn't realize it was until this week so I had planned on skipping it completely originally. It looks like it caps out at 10 boxes though so it's not the full lotto that should hit with the next Christmas event.
