Well, uh... Kiara has apparently learned a lot from her Wizard self in CCC...

Sigurd got a Rank Up quest. (Upgraded damage scaling as usual; added guaranteed NP drain)

Hans got an Animation update. It looks neat - Hans doing a smug.

Summer Illya appears to have the first skill that can be dependent on the target's Ascension sprite. Kama is only a valid target in her base Ascension; Nursery Rhyme is not a valid target in hers.


EDIT: Aaaauuuuuugggghhh the Valkyries are getting models, but they're all $275+ each aaaaauuuugggh I want Ortlinde but I can't justify spending that much on a figure

Back in Luluhawa, while Tomoe and Yagyu are adorable searching for the elusive loco moco, my favorite part of that scene is the fact that the narration goes out of their way to tell you just how screwed Mortiarty is on Electric Steam's upcoming journey up Diamond Head.

I'm glad I'm done doujin grinding, and I just need a little bit more on the bills to clean out the shop. I vented one CS on the CQ because Nitocris just wouldn't die when I needed her to, and I didn't want to bother resetting just to keep the front line alive. Hilariously, Ishtar screwed up and failed to actually finish off Hijikata with her combo, just in range to give me enough NP gauge to make her pay with max power SHINSENGUMI DA.

I jokingly told a friend I would pull BB in the last minutes with a single pull...
At any rate, it's a good thing I held off on doing the Rank Up quests. Hooray. But Mana Prisms are getting low...

Everyone probably already knew this, but I just realized that Mash counts as effective against all classes for the purposes of event CEs in the Fate Zero event. That increased my material yield by quite a bit.

I decided to spend all of my savings since Servantfest on the Shuten rank up banner. If I pull a Raikou then that's great since I don't have her yet, and if I get a second Shuten then I'll grail her. It turned out to be preeeetty profitable. Got a Raikou and a Drake (who I also didn't have). There's uh... a theme going there! Also one Yagyu which is good, although I have an NP3 Lancelot so I'm a bit less excited for him than I might be otherwise. 82 pulls total. More 5*s than 4*s again, that's been a weird pattern lately. But a good one!

Beat the CQ without the need of using CS's.
Line-up: Sanzang, Illya, Support Merlin, Chloe, OG Mash, Medea.  Plugsuit MC.
Focused on EMIYA.  Once his break bar breaks, tag-team him with both Illya's and Sanzang's NP's.
After Kerry is gone, beat on Diamund 'til he loses his break bar (Sanzang got KO'd in the meantime, which was mostly anticipated).  Swapped in Medea for Illya and immediately RWotD and NP'd him.  Then I let Chloe continue to whale on him 'til he finally fell.

Yeah this CQ was surprisingly easy. Went Sanzang/Euryale/Support Merlin/Jeanne/two others that ended up not mattering at all (I think Alterlanta and Mash). Kiritsugu went down super fast to Hero Sanzang NP spam, and while Euryale ate Diarmuid's NP on break (he was Charmed from EotE but I forgot the first thing his break did was clear that out), Jeanne showing up just meant no one else was going to die and victory was only a matter of time.

Also plugsuit CE, though I did not use Order Change.

Oooh man I still need to do Lostbelt 2 and I was hoping for more of a gap between events. Although I guess we'll get a Halloween rerun before Oniland.

My guess the re-run will happen immediately after BiNY ends.  Then we get a "break" with a Interlude Campaign.  After that, Oniland.

Man, Lostbelt 2 is REALLY wordy. Usually I take my time getting through a chapter so it's possible this isn't anywhere near the first time and I'm just now noticing, but I feel like Epic of Remnant was mostly great about pacing and not putting too much text in one go. Lostbelt seems to have slipped a little with that and could maybe use with a few shorter more text-only sections.

Also, do all chapters have this many typos when they first launch and they get fixed later? This is the first time I can remember noticing errors in FGO.

I am enjoying Lostbelt 2 a lot at any rate. It's got that problem every FGO chapter has where it makes you do the same basic fight a ridiculous number of times in a row toward the beginning, but the story seems great. It's hard for me to compare the Lostbelt stories to my favorite chapters since they're so much less self-contained, but I'm certainly not disappointed with the direction things are going so far.

There are actually a surprising number of typos and such in F/GO NA dialogue, some of which have been around for ages (I just recently finished Tamamo Cat's Interlude and it had a couple, as an example). It's one of the few things that are generally agreed DW NA could stand to improve.

LB2 is super wordy because, well, look at who the star attraction is. :V

Double Gil on one 10-roll (after 5 tix).

Grats on double Gil. I'm running solely on tickets right now, so not likely to get Gil or Moolah, and really I'd like to get Sitonai when Oniland drops anyway.

Speaking of, how have you guys been finding the Exhibition Quests so far? We've still got a ways to go before the really hard ones, but I've been finding them fun so far, and they've been relatively straightforward.


(Also new Passionlip figure just dropped for preorder and sweet youkai Jesus the price on it)

I've only done the first two exhibition quests but they were pretty easy as these things go.

The Assassin node in the current batch of farming quests is vexing me, I should be able to cleanly three-turn farm it if my Paracelsus had high enough skill levels but I need like 130 bones to get him there. I might be able to figure something reliable out with the right Mystic Code I guess but it kind of feels like I need Fragment of 2004 to do enough damage to one-shot the last wave with Sieg.

First exhib was pretty reasonable, third I got first try but I just barely escaped by the skin of my teeth

Second I have literally no hope of ever doing despite having a huge chunk of the recommended Servants for it, and I'm probably not going to bother trying again unless I get really bored on the last day or two

Why? Too many crits?

It feels like it's a battle of how effectively can you loop NPs. As long as you keep killing the Spartans quickly, they can't ramp up to "fire truck you and your Merlin" levels, which just leaves Leonidas, who can nuke anyone from neutral.

I typically don't even get anyone to an NP before a crit or seven come along to ruin me, yeah.

Yeah I used Jeanne Archer for most of that one. She's weak to Leonidas which isn't ideal but she still lasted more than long enough to weaken his defense enough for Lancelot Saber to finish him off.

Moolah's Pawn Shop is an amazing palate cleanser between Jaguar Country and the upcoming Infinity Sweets (name pending). After an initial bad timeTM with those taunts, Melt tore a hole right through. Poor (support) Merlin, though, stunlocked and debt-ridden in the back.

The jaguar one is so annoying that I haven't really buckled down and just tried to clear it yet. I think I have a strategy that should work but I'm not looking forward to dealing with how long it is again...

Also Sita as an NPC Support.


As an aside, I am so glad Aurora Steel is a drop in the ticket node. Still need 40 for Ortlinde, and however many I still need for XX.
