Title: Fate/Grand Order - You Can (Not) Rate Up
Post by: Kilgamayan on February 19, 2020, 10:57:01 AM
New thread for new forum.

Knives Out for Ryougi! NA's currently going through the Kara no Kyoukai rerun. I've no idea what's going on in JP World other than that neon multicolored girl being introduced (and somehow getting less than less interesting the more she ascends).

Currently blazing through KnK at light speed myself, in an effort to hurry and max ascend Shiki. Wasteful on the apples? Heck yeah it is, but along with nobubu she's another of my favorites, so you gotta do what you gotta do

Sitting on 53/100 missions but I have to bully medusa 12 more times before I can make any more real progress, oof

Good luck any friends who are still trying to roll for Void or Fujino - my resources have been emptied and I had no luck with em.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order - You Can (Not) Rate Up
Post by: Kilgamayan on February 19, 2020, 12:24:03 PM
I don't have especially strong feelings for KnK, but Asagami is sufficiently novel that I broke down and dipped into my leftover paid SQ* to do a second 10-pull. Got four event CEs (including a second Handsome Gentleman), but no Servant luck. :(

*I still have 18 left over and they are completely untouchable at this point because the math now works out perfectly wrt future GSSRs

Fake Edit:

I have to bully medusa 12 more times

Given the plot of the event, I wonder what it says about the Gorgon sisters that Stheno and Medusa are residents of the apartment but Euryale isn't.

Real Edit: Whoops I brought Nitocris to the Old Incinerator quest and completly ruined Ryougi's chance to show off <_<

If I get enough for another 10-roll, I'll roll again for her.  Otherwise it's time to stockpile for Summer and Skadi.

Still trying to stockpile quartz for this year's new Summer event in my everlasting quest to get a damn Foreigner-class servant. Alas, I also feel obligated to pull one ten-roll on each new banner if it's event/new story chapter-related, so it's kinda slow-going at the moment.

That said, I fell in love with the animation in Fujino's NP, so I've been throwing tickets at the event banner, though I haven't gotten her so far and I doubt I will at all. At the very least I've come away with some more event CEs, so I'm not too disappointed.

So...

Late last night, I was doing impulse single rolls since the Fujino banner dropped. Decided to do one for the MHXA banner. Got MHXA. Max leveled her, skilled her up a bit, turned the phone off, fell asleep. Busy day at work today, 5:00 PM arrives and I think, there was something neat that happened in FGO, but can't quite remember. Suddenly remember MHXA pull. Was thinking, wonder if it is worth posting somewhere that "I forgot I got a new 5* servant for 18 hours". Go visit MotK...

My heart dropped so much about TSO.

MHXA is now someone I'll associate with TSO. I guess you can't go too wrong with a moe sweets-loving Sith Lord with a Darth Maul extra attack. I'll keep you in my All slot for a good long while. Thank you for all that you've done and all that you continue to do.

Started this new years. Seems like if you aren't particularly lucky, early game really slams you.
Also dislike d'Eon quite a bit thanks to them ruining my first 4 star spot.

Haven't been in long enough to desire favorites or save up for someone I like. I just want good servants right now. Beggars can't be choosers yet. Aside from Gorgon from the 4 star select. She's always been useful and a clutch since obtaining her.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order - You Can (Not) Rate Up
Post by: commandercool on February 20, 2020, 11:38:35 PM
Yeah Deon unfortunately sucks. I got Stheno as my starter character and she didn't do me any favors.

For what it's worth, you're going to be a lot better off leveling common units that you can actually max ascend than rarer units that you don't have materials for. Almost all common units are pretty viable, and especially high-priority commons include Hans, Euryale, Arash, and possibly Medea who are all particularly excellent and will be essential for the entire duration of the game.

What singularity are you on?

Just finished London before this event started. So I'm at the Fifth now.

I think I have a good enough crew to start getting through game more comfortably. Though, some slots for a 2nd of the same class aren't as great. Like Assassin... used to be, until this event.

Oh, it starts to get mean at the Sixth.  If you have her, you may want to focus on bulking up Euryale by then.

It feels like the CE battle drop rate is higher than normal.  I've just landed my 2nd Summer Premonition via battle drop, and I've also got one each of Chorus and Threefold Barrier the same way too.

Ah gotcha, I got stuck on the early demon pillars so if you can handle those then you're doing pretty decent. Although I didn't understand how to use Mystic Codes until waaaay late in the game (I thought they used command seals for some reason) which hurt.

ostrawberries we're at 9M Downloads already... 3 SQ from Master Missions, more tix, half AP EoR story quests, and SE.RA.PH release Servants (minus Melt) in the rate-up.

On the one hand, we're gonna just barely whiff getting those tickets for MAGARE; on the other hand, we're at least getting the March monthly tickets if you want them for her.

This is also your reminder to head back to the Hanging Gardens to redeem your extra Flavor Boosts, Lock-On Chocolates, and Surprise Chocolates. I only just remembered myself....
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order - You Can (Not) Rate Up
Post by: Rei Scarlette on February 21, 2020, 07:50:07 AM
I think there may still be a chance to use those tickets on the KnK banners, but that depends entirely on if I misunderstood the news or not.

The first reward is written to be your first login after 2020-02-24 20:00 PST. Then, so long as I'm not goofing something, the seventh available reward should be 2020-03-01 20:00 PST, right?

Void and MAGARE are lasting until 03-02 20:00 PST so we should have *just one* day to try our luck.

Well, in either case, I hope that's how it works out, but even if not, it's about time we start getting 3 SQ from weeklies. That'll be great stuff.

Stheno is a horrible starter character. She should not be on the starter list and neither should Deon. But she is in the Shuten Club of 40% Shuten charismas so that's a big plus. A big plus that deeeefinitely is not of any use to new players.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order - You Can (Not) Rate Up
Post by: Kilgamayan on February 21, 2020, 03:09:59 PM
Stheno is the best starter character because it is very important that new players know their place in the Fate world (below Stheno).

Funnily enough, d'Eon does get booted from the starter set later on; they get yeeted by Suzuka.

I do agree having a heavy tank in the starter set when you start with one is awkward as hell.


I just realized they made one of the cards in the Rank Up banner a question mark to hide the fact that two Alter Egos are getting buffs.

Welp, today is officially the first time I've actually witnesses the "silver card turning gold" thing myself. I always knew about it, but I didn't know what it looks like.

Silver card stopped spinning, then started sparking with gold electricity sparks, and the card transformed into... NP2 Francis Drake :V

I really wish it were Shiki but I'm not even mad. Drake has been so useful, and also is one of my 5 or so bond 10 servants right now. I'd say she deserves the upgrade.

(also my very 2nd NP2 SSR?? that's neat)

Ooooh, is this when Lip and Melt get buffed? I like both of their buffs quite a lot on paper, so looking forward to it.

As far as tanks go, Mash is so busted that I've never felt like leveling up George or Leonidas was a priority at all. They both look pretty great, but Mash is stone-cold degenerate and I can't really envision needing two tanks at once. I imagine poor Deon falls into that category as well, they're arguably not better than George or Leonidas (although they do fill a pretty different role admittedly) and they're much harder to level. A substantial rework would be nice...
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order - You Can (Not) Rate Up
Post by: Rei Scarlette on February 22, 2020, 05:50:02 AM
In regard to tanks, I usually find myself using George or d'Eon when I specifically want a sacrificial tank. The 3-turn taunt helps them to soak some damage and then promptly die and get out of the way so my other units can do their thing. And you can use their guts or evade to manipulate how many turns you allow them to survive before heading out, so that's kind of cool.

For actual full-on tanking though? Honestly just Mash or Jeanne is who I go to for that kind of thing...

Sadly d'Eon's actual tanking ability is locked behind being a high ascension, when you've likely advanced far enough that Mash will cover most of your tanking needs, so s/he's just in a really awkward spot.

Although I've had d'Eon for quite a long time (picked with my very first 4-star ticket - a ticket I sometimes wish had gone to Salter, or getting Helena ealier) I think I can count on one hand the number of times I've *needed* them.

Friends list is usually full so you may need to poke me on discord if you need something in that regard. I'm known for having a lot of casters, and wavers. Particularly if I see another waver I may feel the need to shank him because I don't need NP4.

I'm pretty close to done with the current event but I looked ahead at the handful of missions I don't have and almost gave up when I saw that I needed so many more Shiki bond levels. Good thing I complained about it on the internet though, because someone pointed out to me that Shiki's bond levels 4 and 5 are way way shorter than the earlier ones. I should be able to finish up in plenty of time after all. That's a dirty trick.  ;D

I managed to finish pretty safely, with 3 days left even after finishing up the last bit of farming.

Unfortunately, being busy for some of this weekend means I'm missing out on the cost cut quests and ember farming + better usage.

I've been farming the Parking Lot for literally a week for QP purposes because I've had all missions done and the shop completely bought out since less than 24 hours after the challenge quest opened as selectable. <_<; I didn't realize others had so much trouble getting Shiki's bond level up. (This thread is not the only place I've seen people discuss it.)

EDIT: Made one last push for Fujino, got Ryougi Saber instead. Great success...?
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order - You Can (Not) Rate Up

Made one last push for Fujino, got nothing. Unless they bring back the banner (or have a free 4* ticket that's restricted to only limited servants), there'll be no Fujino at my Chaldea.  My adventures with the banner only netted me four spooks; A new S-12, NP2 Waver, a new Chiyome, and NP5 Fran (first NP5 4*).

Like Kilga I was farming the Parking Lot for QP to bring up MIKOO~OON!'s skills (after I wrapped up JAlter's).

The challenge quest went almost effortlessly for me. Always the right card at the right time so I never even got hit by an NP.

Also Merlin animation update. Cool beans.

My target banner is still a ways away. I must hold steady.
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order - You Can (Not) Rate Up
Post by: Rei Scarlette on March 03, 2020, 12:48:10 PM
For the challenge quest I tried out a Summer Arturia solo, the first run was only supposed to be testing the waters to see if it was viable, but it was unexpectedly stable and I didn't have to retry it.

With decapitating bunny CE to ensure I could always hit her with a buster card to lower her NP gauge, she... well, that was basically the entire thing in a nutshell. Shiki couldn't deal enough damage to outpace Archuria's healing skill at all, and she couldn't spam her own healing enough to outpace an NP every other turn. No momentum for Shiki either offensively or defensively there. The hardest part was waiting for Fujino to die so I could start chaining properly.

Unfortunately I had no luck at all pulling Shiki, although I did manage to NP4 my Lancer Alter so I'm not even mad. If I ever pull a fifth copy I guess I'll have to grail her up to 100 instead of just 90.

(Translation: The next event is coming up in a couple of days; and Arthur's next (and currently last) rate up.)

I whiffed on Fujino, so I'm back into saving mode for Atlante Alter, Skadi, and Ortlinde. (Oh god Lostbelt 2 has so many Servants on rateup I desperately want)

The funny part about the Challenge Quest was that the add wasn't particularly resistant to Instant Death; Nito and Shiki shredded it instantly.

after exhausting all my everything and not getting saber shiki nor getting arthur, i only had the maintenance compensation quartz and MHX came home from a 1-roll

i was wondering who would be my next to give gold fous to now that MHXA is done but i guess the gods of the gacha answered that question for me

im sorry this probably comes off as a little bit of a flex post but im just genuinely happy

Do you guys stop using servants as much once they're max bond? I just got Bunyan's bond CE and my impulse is to not use her for farming anymore because it feel like a waste of bond points, but not using her feels like a waste of time.

Then again maybe I'm wasting more time on Bunyan's NP than I think. My farming teams don't tend to have a character with an NP battery and I don't have an MLB Kaleidescope, so I have to open the Mystic Code menu to top off her meter ever time. Maybe a character with their own battery and a much longer animation would be about as fast...?
Title: Re: Fate/Grand Order - You Can (Not) Rate Up
Post by: Rei Scarlette on March 13, 2020, 11:48:58 PM
personally i try to use bond 10 servants less, but if it would stop me from farming quickly, then im totally fine with bringing them out. arash and spartacus still get a ton of use from me even though both are fully bonded, and i still bust out kintoki if there's a caster that mecha eli cant conveniently take care of (either for charge or damage reasons)

i do try to use alternatives where possible, but whats most important for me personally is getting the job done in 3 turns. im okay with taking a hit in speed to be less wasteful in bond points but i try not to bump it up to taking extra turns

I have 3 Bond lvl 10 servants; Raikou, Iskandar, and Angry Mango.
Raikou is my lead damage dealer, so she still gets plenty of use.
Iskandar is my first 5*, still get used when I need to stomp on Casters, but I've let Astolfo step in his role on my Door farm team.
The Mango was done because his Interlude requires him to be at Bond level 10.  He doesn't get used at all, especially now I have Gorgon and JAlter on my team.

It's made slightly better if one is familiar with Fate/Extra, but on the whole it is on the lower end of the interesting scale, yes.

It doesn't help that there's, like, nothing interesting to purchase with the second-tier shop drop (which is, of course, the only drop I have an event CE for).

The next thing I'm really super interested in is Ibaraki Lancer and she's a long way off. We'll see if I get tempted before then, I probably will. Astolfo NP levels, Ishtar NP levels, and Mordred all could cause me to spend my stockpile. Especially if they end up on the same banner in any combination.

I'll probably make the 2m mark as I'm currently at 1.73m now.  Largely by ignoring currency farming (the drop rates w/o lots of CEs are terrible).  Likewise, most the mats there I currently have loads of anyway.

I'm going to make it to 2M, somehow, but I am large confused as to how I pulled it off. I can only assume due to stubbornness and only ever running with a maximum bonus and refreshing support list for those MHX and Lily's with star of altria equipped.

My absolute refusal to do it with less than maximum efficiency is probably the only thing that saved my ass in this huge grind o3o

Challenge quest was just a Minamoto thing, everyone else equipped with damage boost and support was Waver also having MLB boost. I was worried about it but it wasn't as bad as I thought.

I can't even reliably win the last node with a maximum efficiency team. My Sabers aren't thaaat heavily invested and I don't have a great variety of them, so for reliability I've had to run teams with several non-bonus units. And even then it's slow.

The challenge quest was an Ibaraki opportunity for me. The reliable core of Ibaraki and Mash took care of it no problem.

I'm already past 1.85m so I'll hit 2m regardless. I mostly neglected the shop.

Normally, tossing rolls as soon as I get them doesn't tend to bear fruit.
This is not the case today. Finally, an assassin that can do big numbers! (https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/341753460192182273/692504141854933012/Screenshot_20200325-194318_FateGO.jpg)

Decided to give the LB1 banner a 10-roll...

Landed the new Angry Cat and another "Ideal Holy King".

Two 10-pulls resulted in Mochizuki and another 2038 but nothing else good. Not even any of the banner CEs! :(

Alterlanta is likely to be my PYO 4* the next time that rolls around.

So my obligatory ten-pull resulted in an Anastasia.

I'm pretty pleased, especially since I didn't expect anything.

Admittedly, there are no CEs on rate up at this time, so not a huge surprise you didn't get any of them.

All I picked up with 90Q was Caster of Black. If I don't manage to pick up the Walkure in LB2, it's gonna be a big personal debate whether I pick up the Caledonian Boar or them for the next 4* pick...

I've got a buddy who just started playing, does anyone know if there's a guaranteed 4* exchange for new players? Someone told me there was one after the prologue but I haven't really seen any evidence of that online. Did that get added to the English-language servers at some point?

As far as I know, the next free 4* should be somewhere around November.  Then again, the last free 4* was a total surprise, so who knows really.

Are the April Fools Saint Glyphs Japan only, or how do I see them?

You'll have to look them up individually on one of the wikis, most likely. The actual april fools servant artworks have not been in the game for a while, although the artist does keep up with drawing new ones however.

Speaking of april fools... It seems some random internet user may be having a laugh with a look-alike account to match the FGO NA twitter page. Or it could be the actual NA team, but usually they do april fools stuff on their primary account if they're doing anything that year.

Well I did my splurge on the lostbelt 1 banner and I got

NP5 Nyalter + 1 copy (first rare prism)
1 Yan Qing (np2)
1 Caster Gilgamesh (np2)
1 zerker Vlad (NP3)
1 Nightingale (new)

...And last but not least:

MY FOURTH WAVER. He is now np4. It's a meme at this point. I could've had NP3 anastasia. I whiffed. Atalanta alter was my target anyway. She is now Lv 100, NP5, and presently 8/10/8 on skills because mystic gunpowder sucks.
