Oooh, wtb that Disengage buff for Banana.

I've always wished they would buff it to be usable while stunned/charmed, but Guts would be great too. Especially for Hijikata, but Banana would be able to make great use of it too.

Time to go nuke the Coffin Archer. (Sidenote: if you picked up XX during the summer, try her against the mass-produced Mecha-Elis! She doesn't get the damage bonus, but they're all Threats to Humanity!)

Also, the Case Files anime is getting dubbed, with the box set releasing mid-December. I wonder a little bit about smol!Olga's voice.

Also also Sita confirmed 4* Archer in Arcade.

CQ Line-Up:  Summer-Raki / Summer-Mama / Waver / OG Mash / Support Summer-Raki / LAlter
Nuked the old man w/ NPs/Brave Chains.  Ignored the Mecha-Eli's.  Simple.

Oniland is inbound, prolly starting immediately after the Re-run ends.  Probably you're best chance to get Sitonai, although she's not Limited (yay!), but Story-locked instead (crap).

I grabbed a Waver for support, spammed what needed to be spammed Turn 1, and then swapped him out for #5-slot Skadi to complement Lancer Ibaraki (kinda) and Jack (deffo) with Enkidu also kicking around in slot #4. Things never even got as far as slot #6 before Moriarty bit it. One of the easiest challenge quests they've done imo

Tamamo Summer wrecks face in the CQ, no problem. Anti-Male, Lancer, Halloween bonus damage... Only thing she doesn't have is defense pierce.

Obligatory reminder that you need to complete LB2 to participate in Oniland. If you're like me and haven't done it yet, go finish your store farming soon and get on that while the 1/2 AP thing is going.

Last year, I cheesed it in 3 turns with a black grail lancer alter and 3 command seals for instant charging, because I was either lazy or busy at the time and couldn't be bothered to fight crime papa with respect.

This year, I'm feeling better about the clear cuz I did it in 8 turns with mama Raikou, a borrowed Waver, Skadi, and some taunters with +NP on death CEs equipped. It was pretty satisfying to see that nobody took damage except the designated taunters and it was just a matter of doing NPs and crits until he went down.

I've also made the decision to feed my second lizbot an equal number of grails as I gave to the first one. I was on the fence over it for a while, but after I was able to claim my own Mk.II I guess it was only a matter of time before my general love for robots and AI kicked in again. Those two are precious and deserve equal love and support.

Did 3 10-rolls and spent a few tix and NP2'd Pavarti, 4 3* CEs, and 2 each of the 4* and 5* CE's.  Which is what I wanted, so I considered it a win for me.
Then I decided to spend the reward tix on the banner too...
... guess who decided to show up today off a Magifender point reward ticket.

Ii feels like if I'm being serious about getting the rate-up servant, it'll be gacha hell.  If I only consider getting the servant as a bonus, suffice to say he or she WILL show up in what little I planned to spend on the banner.
That said, Sitonai's personality is very much F/sn Illya as opposed to the other Illya.

So! JP's getting upgrades for Abby, MHXX, and Yang; in what appears to be a Foreigner-related event. Also Abby/Yang banner, which is nice, since this is Abby's first banner since... literally EN's banner once maintenance ends.

EDIT: pfft got spooked by Jeanne and Zerkerlot.


EDIT2: Hey, new Foreigner (inb4 Ina leviathans for her like some of the other Foreigners) and Rider of the Wandering Sea! That one skill is super sus, though; looks like we might be fighting in a Zero Sail?!

Woah, what's up with the crazy flood of materials in the mail? Is this part of some kind of system to help new players actually ascend their Servants or something that we're getting retroactively?

Those are rewards that from this point forward you now obtain from clearing main quests in the story. Us who are caught up with things are getting them all as a huge lump sum retroactively, otherwise, they're obtained individually as nodes are cleared.

In a way it kind of does kind of doesn't help new players. On one hand the extra materials are very very nice, although on the other hand if you're having trouble getting that far because you can't ascend your servants, then you won't have these materials to help ascend them, so... It's a nice little bonus absolutely, but it doesn't entirely smooth over the new player difficulties as great as it could. Still helpful, though.

Any bones are good bones, but that does still seem like a huge flaw with the game. I feel like the devs miss out on no money whatsoever by just giving every new player 50/30/10 of every material to get them started. I know at least two people IRL who quit playing early-ish because they got stuck on materials.

Back in JP, more Servants are getting buffed.

Kintoki (Berserker)'s NP now also reduces Buster resist.

Danzo's NP now gives a party-wide Buster buff.

Ibaraki-Douji's Disengage is now targetable, gives a huge Crit buff, if the target is a Shuten-Douji, they get an Attack buff, and if there's any Shuten-Doujis on the field, Ibaraki gets some NP gauge.


EDIT: Well, uh... the new batch of Arcade Servants was announced. Saber Astolfo is a bit of a surprise. Lancer
Spoiler:
Christmas Suzuka Gozen gyaru
is so far out of left field. I love how the mods on the subreddit made a new joke flair just for this announcement.

My Yu Mei-ren "mis"adventures...

NP2'd Stheno, landed Saber Diarmuid and Yan Qing, and then finally got Yu. (Also NP5'd Red Hare) Took about 4 10-rolls and 9 tix.  No Qin Shi Huang, but after landing Abby twice in as many rolls when chasing Circe, I'm not complaining.

... I've just looked at my old Free 4* ticket listing (my then means of tracking who I do and don't have), I only have 9 non-limited 4*'s I don't have one copy of left; Gawain, Yagyu, Rama, Lanling Wang, Qin Laingyu, Chiron, Tristan, Valkryie, and Marie.

Got nobody new out of a 10-pull, but Yu Miaoyi came three tickets later, so I'm pretty pumped.

I just want to say I was really hoping Quetz's stage name would be "Samba Island Mask" to continue on the "*** Island Mask" legacy and also play off of the original Santa Island Mask

But this is acceptable too. Really looking forward to snagging those juicy 20 Reactor Cores from the event shop so that I don't have to farm them anymore lol

3 10-rolls, but no Brandles, but did NP2 Ruler-Martha and get 1 each of the event CE's.  Saving the rest for at least the GSSR.

Sidenote for those who don't know, this event has not re-run in JP.  It may be your only chance for Ruler-Quetz.

And the new Santa (for JP) is...  Saber Karna.  And a new 5* (probably) that we know nothing about.  Stay tuned!

More intel from JP;
The new 5* is Vritra, an AOE Arts-based lancer and will not be limited.  (So, similar to Brandles.)
Georgios gets an animation update.  Beowulf get a buff to his third skill 3.  Ruler-Martha returns to the gacha.

Friendly reminder - you need to drop a meteor on Mayall in order to enter the Enmatei. If you haven't beaten LB3 yet, take advantage of the 1/4 AP and do it. Right now.

I'm a little concerned that I've managed to collect 17 of the 43 Limited Servants on the upcoming GSSR. (All Limited Servants in one pool.) A 40% dupe chance is... not ideal.

Also the GSSR returns and the guaranteed 5* servant is limited to only Limited servants. It requires 15 paid SQ.

Got my weekly summon ticket last night and somehow rolled Yagyu from the story gacha. Didn't expect that at all.

Apparently, Thomas the Tank Engine isn't one to take crap from anyone.

edit-
Nothing much to report on my Beni pursuit; New Qin Liangyu, NP5'd Tamacat, NP3'd Fionn, and a standard set of event CE's.  Saving the rest for the other gacha.

My GSSR ended up being Jalter. Not even close to my top pick, but it's pretty impossible to complain about that!

I finished Lostbelt 3 a couple of days ago and thought it was great. Easily my favorite Lostbelt and among my favorite chapters ever. It doesn't quite top Shinjuku or Salem for me, but I'm liking where the story is going.

I got Jeanne Alter and a Waver, except something's weird about the Waver, he looks like a 4 star craft essence?

I can't be mad though, I may only ever roll Waver as random assorted CEs, but I have no complaints about finishing off my Avenger collection. Also got a Beni Bird with the celebratory tickets+quartz so I think I'm done rolling on things until Reines comes around
