Reminder that this is the last banner that First Hassan has a rate up for. I tried to NP2 him and failed.

At least I already have Ishtar at NP3 so I can skip the upcoming banner.

Down to 8 missing servants. Tried to NP1 Enkidu and failed. Of those I have, only 4 aren't at max ascension. :(

I think they are giving 10 more tickets at the end of the event. I’ll try for Gramps one last time with those. I have tons of unleveled SRs so I should probably just level those instead of collecting more servants.

In the last couple of months, I haven't gotten ONE 4* or higher servant. Tried on multiple banners, used all of the tickets they've given us, bought SQ, too. Nothing. Man, I forgot how terrible the pulling is in this game. I'm definitely frustrated at this point. I wanted another Artoria Alter and couldn't even get her. Ugh.

Oh don't let it get you down. Almost everyone but the whales tend to go several months without a golden servant. While the rest of us just gotta save and save for that one servant we just gotta have.

Yeah. It's been frustrating because I haven't felt like I've wanted a servant that's so hard to get mostly 4* units, but I can't even do that. I guess I'll just go back to hoarding and hope for the best. It's just so frustrating. I'll probably cut down my playing for a while to cool off.

I saw there was an app update this time - are we getting animation updates or something with the rerun?

I don't think so. What's currently happening is that while the Android update is out, we are still stuck waiting for Apple to catch up. Which is why the server is still down.

Just saw the news, down until 6PM Pacific. 22 hours. Global's longest maintenance, dethroning the old Nerofest maintenance of yesteryear.

Sucks too, because the 1/2 AP catch up stuff, as well as the 10 summon tickets for login streak. Might be worth it to set an alarm for the time the server is supposed to come back just to log in and get your tickets.

I was reading on Reddit that Euro people will have to wake up around 2am if they want to keep their streak going for the event.

So let's take bets here on compensation.

I got 50 gafpoints on 10 gold apples, 10 quartz, 4mil QP

If it goes past 24 hours, then triple that and 10-20 free tickets on top.

Ordinarily it's 1 quart per hour of planned maintenance. But otherwise we get Golden Apples instead.
I don't think apolo-tickets have ever been a thing.

Only 4 quartz? Damn that doesn't even begin to make up for this. We were supposed to get 10 summon tickets from the login streaks. Plus with the 7 day weekly streak broken, that's another ticket and quartz down the drain right there.

There is no last hour window. It took the full 24 hours for maintenance to end.
Unfortunately I'm having no luck getting in either.
yea, daylight savings time shifted the reset back an hour. it was a full 24.

I'm pretty much just saving mine. For what though? Fuck if I know. I want Eresh, but I also want the Foreigners. Gah! Choices!

Subtitled NP's! Bless you Albert!

I'm still grinding away on Jailter Rerun. I missed this event last year so I have to do it this year to get her.

I’m on box 8. Fruitcake farming sucks because the nodes don’t drop much and I only have 1 CE for it.

Managed to get the First Hassan to NP2 using the last of my free SQ. Got a kscope (9th copy) on one of my 2 tickets as well.

Even with the max fruitcake drop bonus, there are still pathetically few drops to get a bonus for. Got everything from the shop except for the special fou from the lottery currency and the monuments.

Apparently the rare prisms from welfare servants come after the 3ed Christmas, possibly the rerun. And it will only apply to newly acquired copies. You will get the rare prisms in the gift box the same way you will get unregistered origins when you get a 6th copy of a 5*. You won't get any rare prisms if you have extra welfare servants before that goes live.

I've entirely skipped this rerun so far. Just haven't felt like grinding in this game. What are the big box prizes this time? I might burn some apples tonight to get through the first 5~ boxes if it's worthwhile.

I feel like the missions for grinding aren't fun at all. I'm on box 2 and I don't feel like doing more because the missions are a pain to do. If they want us to grind this stuff out, then they need to make these missions better for that sort of thing. Not sure I'm gonna continue with this event as it stands. I didn't like it last year and not a fan of it this year, either.

The Snowflakes map that drops fruitcakes also drops shortcakes. Shortcakes can be converted into Fruitcakes to make that part of the grind easier.
As for me, I've already cleared the 10 boxes, now I'm just working on getting the last of the Fous and (if I have time) the remaining Jantas. Stockings can be converted into rolls, but it takes a while.

1/2 AP Ember missions... Unlimited Farming Works!

176/177 of the servants I own are at max ascension. Missing 2 riders (Medb and Columbus) but all of the riders I have are at max level too.

Welp, I just got Kiyohime to Bond 10, and I think I'm almost officially out of AoE Berserkers at this point to raise bond with. Are there any more coming up in gacha?

I've maxed:
  • Fran
  • Kiyo
  • Raikou
  • Tamamocat
Almost maxed:
  • Chacha
  • Lancelot
Just started:
  • Bunyan
  • Darius
I know Bloodaxe and Spartacus are both AoE but I can barely guarantee a 1 round KO on farming stages with Bunyan and she's got a way better kit than either of those two. I feel like it's going to be a long time until we get more AoE zerkers.

Maybe Dantes can clear that first round, I'll have to try it.

I've only got a hand full of max bond level servants. Arjuna, Tamamo cat, Raiko. I kept cycling them all out to get every servant at least bond level 5 for 1/2 AP interluded. Ran out of interludes. Also cycling them out for lower bond level SQ rewards.

I'm missing 7 5* and 1 3* servants total (2nd mecha liz doesn't count since it's time locked) so I have 177 servants total.

With the current 1/2 AP farms, I've got all of my 5* and 4* at max level and less than 40 not max level 3* and below.

All 177 are max ascension.
