I picked Zerkerlot and got him up to 80 with lotto embers. I’m hoping I can NP2 him later this year with the Fate/Zero rerun event. I have NP2 Atlante, Parvati, NP2 Astolfo and Zerkerlot. I will probably fail to get Skadi now :messenger_tongue:

There's always support Skadi!

Gorgon is NP3 now, coming along nicely. She gets her strengthening quest later this year which will bump up her damage even more. She's strong enough now that I can use her in place of a berserker during my farming runs against any class, and I haven't even gold Fou'd or grailed her yet.

*Edit* - quick question, where in the story did JP get the increased bond limit? I think it was early lostbelt, which is where we currently are.

Not a huge fan of this event. The floors are dull and there's so many of them. It wouldn't be much of an issue if the event wasn't so short. Not sure if I will be able to clear 200 floors. That's 30 floors a day.

It surprises me that despite us being so far behind JP, and how many dead weeks we still have despite not catching up to them, that they make these events so short. What's the harm in letting it run an extra week or something? I could see shortened durations if we were catching up, but nah.

Starting on a Monday too. The least they could have done was start on Fri/Sat last week and give us a few extra days since we just had a ton of dead time.

I don't think I'm gonna end up doing this event. Making servants have a cooldown and not being able to use Friend units is bad. 200 floors? That's just insane. I think I can sit this one out and not feel bad about it.

Missions are pretty easy. Just need to worry about the rounds with 2 waves.

If you have CE that boost the NP bar, just choose 3* with a multi target NP and let loose the NP.

Rewards are nice but not spectacular. There's an event CE rewarded too as you progress.

I'm up to floor 50 so far. I have time today, but not so much over the next three days. Going to push for floor 60 or 70 today. I want to aim for floor 100 or maybe getting the first lore in the 100+ floors as my overall goal.

I haven't looked at a guide yet, when can you LB4 the CE? That's my personal goal.

How do you refresh units? I decided to try it, but by floor 10 most of my dudes are tapped out. I have some in the hot spring, but there doesn't seem to be a quicker way to go on.

It looks like you get 3 by the time you hit floor 100. The last 2 are beyond 100.

I have somewhere around 40 units at level cap. I've been trying to use 1 per regular floor and then 2 other random low level characters that just absorb hits. I put my AOE servants in the hot spring so I can use them soon. AOE servant + KScope is an easy floor clear.

I checked on wikia, apparently 140 gets the last copy. Ugh.

Still going to try to get it though, 50% starting NP with crit damage and stars is damn good for buster single target. Basically built for double Merlin as long as you can make up that 10% NP somehow.

I cleared up to floor 100 and did the CQ. I’ll just pick away at the last 100 floors when I have time to see how far I can get. From what I read it is just the same as the first 100 but with more HP, so my interest is pretty low. CEs might make it quick.

There's still 2 more crystallized lores as well as a lot of QP to be had if you continue. And 2 more copies of the event CE.

Edit: Finished floor 200! I'm FREE! The level 200 boss was actually one of the easier ones.

Floor 100+ actually haven’t really been any harder so I might have time to clear it all. I’m aiming for 150 for the lore but will try for 200 for the second lore also.

Finally started the event last night, got to floor 65 before I got bored. The worst part of the whole thing aren't the fights at all, it's the damn loading.

Peps on Twitter are saying JP players got angry because we got the back button early. Don't know what source they're using.

Took over 400SQ to get golden boy... Also got 5* Tamamo to NP3, Tomoe to NP4, and Jean to NP7...

You have so many servants you probably could have cleared the entire event in one sitting if you wanted to :p

I bought the five tickets in the shop and decided to roll them for fun. Ended up getting another Tomoe (np3 now) and Kintoki. I’m shocked because normally tickets only get me three star CE junk.

Welp. Looks like getting Raikou is just not gonna happen. Even bought some SQ and no luck. Oh well, I'll try again next time she shows up.

Made it to floor 61 before I got too bored to continue. I might try to make it to floor 70 before I call it quits. Not really interested in doing more than that, but I was spurred on by needing magatamas (sp?) to ascend one of my units. Seeing that they're so damn far up the tower, I kinda gave up.

Got Semi in 180 Quartz. I like her design but she seems pretty worthless. Along the way I did get Penth NP2, Parvarti NP2, and Marie NP11 or 12 or something (a rare prism is what I'm trying to say). I'm enjoying the valentines story so far, I think I see where this is headed already.

Ended up only getting to floor 81 on the Setsubun event, which is a shame. I was just busy with other stuff and have been playing a ton of Monster Hunter World lately. I really liked the event format, I finally got to use more than the same 10 or 11 servants which was cool, but so much fucking loading and menu navigation just to do a 3 second fight. I really wanted to max out the event CE, but oh well. The real MVP of Setsubun was having two maxed out Kaleidoscopes.

How is everyone doing on the event? I’m working on factory #8 now. I’m running full flavor CEs so I haven’t dented the shop much. I don’t have any silver or gold CEs anyways.

I've been farming the last Lancer stage. I'm running 4/6 event CEs, but the fight itself takes a while that way. I might give in and just put my buster gorilla sabers in with Kaleidoscopes and call it a day to save my sanity.

That’s the node I’m doing too. It does take long with a full CE set up. I’m thinking of switching to Kscopes also and then maybe just burning a few apples if needed.

I've finished building the facilities. Finished clearing out the prize shop and about 41m chocolate produced.

Waiting for the Jack rate up before trying for Semi again...

Haven't tried the challenge quest yet. Looks like a pain.

Anyone know when the next CE storage increase is coming?

Edit: Got Jack but Semi still eludes me...

I finished up the 60 million chocolates today. I bought a few quartz to round up my total enough to do two 10 pulls for the Drake/Semi banner. I managed to get Drake which fills in a hole in my lineup. It’s been a pretty good year so far with getting Scathach, Kintoki and Drake without much effort. That makes up for the pile I burned trying to get Eresh and my shitty GSSR pull.

That why I haven't done any of the giving/receiving chocolate things, because I'm already hurting for CE space and all of those servants are just gonna flood what little space I have left with stuff I won't really be able to get rid of. They really need to boost up storage space if they're going to keep doing stuff like this.

It'd be cool if they added CEs as a "collection" item if you FLB it. Like it goes into a library of CEs that don't take up inventory space, but they charge you like 20 mana prisms to pull it back out. Kinda like how Destiny handles armor.

D deanote666 how's your CE storage holding up? You're probably swimming in Valentines CEs at this point.
I'm struggling to keep 30 open slots normally...

They go to your gift box first so you can control the flood. Also, someone on Twitter mentioned that they are good CE exp cards for your regular CE. You can also view the cut scenes from getting the chocolates in My Room as well so it may be worth completing that if you want complete event records.

In My Room, you can view any CE you've previously acquired. Same with servants under Material - spirit origin list. But any extended storage would be welcome. I've got over 19k MP and 60 rare prisms.

For a game that encourages spending, you'd think they'd be more generous with the storage system...

Finished the shop and 60m chocolate over the weekend and then the weekly missions send me back in!

I did finish the challenge quest today though.

Edit: Semi came home! I seem to have better luck with single roles lately so it's hard to say how many SQ it took. Took under 200 I think. I have an unprecedented 90SQ left...

Missing 5 servants now. 4 5* and 1 3*.

Edison and Tesla are two of the most one-note characters in the game. I hate when I see that they're involved in another event because you know it's going to be AC/DC garbage again for the next 5 minutes. It's a shame because they each had decent development in their singularities of origin.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish the facilities for this valentines event. I've still got like 3 upgrade categories that I haven't even unlocked yet. I finally got BB and Melt's chocolates though, and they both had good scenes, so I'm satisfied with that. I think out of all the stars I got, I've only gotten 1 or 2 that actually let you pick the servant. I was hoping it'd be a little more even in the distribution.

Edison and Tesla are so damn annoying. I don't understand why they don't expand their characters to do other things and leave this AC/DC crap alone. I pretty much skip any scenes they're in for this reason. It sucks.

Doubt I'm gonna even get close to finishing this current event. Haven't played it a whole lot, either. It doesn't matter, I guess.

KnK rerun on the 18th


It's a rerun, but worth noting that this has been the only summoning event, even in the JP version (I think?) that has this servant summonable:

https://fategrandorder.fandom.com/wiki/Asagami_Fujino

So any collectors may be interested.

Also, if you haven't gotten the welfare Shiki, she's very useful.

Any Sword Shikis?

Don't hate me, but I literally got Fujino on my first ticket.
During the last 10 pull, got a Saber Shiki (NP2, got 1 from the original event) and the next card was Fujino. I was hoping to get Fujino to NP2 but I only have 33 SQ and 4 tickets left...

Got Tamoe NP5, zerker Fran NP4, Astolofo NP2, d'Eon Rare prism, Tamamo cat rare prism.

Don't forget you can sell your chocolate flavors and unused gift chocolate now in the Valentine shop.

The 9m campaign is a big skip for me. Got Kiara NP1, Passionlip NP5, Suzuka NP5, Emiya alter NP2.

The Boys campaign is going to bleed me dry as it will have 3/5 of the servants I'm missing...

Managed to get NP2 Fujino without going nuts...

I'm pretty much saving for caster Scath at this point. There are so many servants I'm missing, I'd have to spend too much money to even consider getting them all. So the goal at this point is to save until she comes out and think about what else to do after that. The last time I got a 5* unit was months and months ago and that low rate of getting those units just makes me not interested in putting more into it. Good for everyone who dumps tons of money into this game, but that won't be me. Maybe I'll get her when she shows up...maybe I won't. Just gotta hope for the best at this point.

I am saving for her and Summer also. I’m not sure if it is the Skadi banner itself or an event right before, but they are upping the 50 day login bonus from 20 to 30sq and retroactively applying the award. So if your account is really old you’ll get 10sq free for every 50 days. That’s going to be 100+ free quartz for people that have been playing long. Hopefully that’ll help some rolling for Skadi.
