Weekly FGO vol. 98

JP

Summer! Okita Alter Summer for some reason! Yay?

I didn’t have any SQ though so, yeah, that was expensive. Thankfully it only took over 240 rolls to get that NP3 above.

Other extras include NP4 Anastasia, NP4 Charlotte Corday, one extra Valkyrie (now NP3) and Circe (also NP3).

I have no more SQ or ticket so that’s it for me. Kind of. There are about 20 or so more daily SQ roll until it ends so that’ll be it.

Similarly for upcoming Kama banner, as I have no more SQ, it’ll be also just the daily SQ.

As for the event itself, it’ll be a while until full farming can start as the higher level nodes are still locked. Nothing particularly difficult which is rather expected for a summer event.

Oh, I also only have few apples anyway.

NA

Jaguar! I made a vaguely possibly working team and it did. There isn’t much in term of strategy especially as the only meaningful gimmick is rotating buff.

And then Moolah. Pay debt as frequent as possible and then NP away. The annoying part is when there’s matching face card, not enough critical star, or both. Or when the debt is about using NP damage boost when it’s on a support servant which means there’s no way to pay it back.

That said, Ozymandias is both tanky and high damage so everything worked out fine-ish. Oh and that comp above is a lie. Replace that Enkidu with a level 100 Cu which didn’t end up doing anything much.

MHXA! One of the more difficult quests. The strategy is kill as many snacks/enemies as possible as fast as possible. Except the one which causes debuff on death. Also save an NP or two for the Agar-agar. The side effect is the HP down to 1 and can’t even be buffed (I tried).

I use that as the point on which I need to break MHXA first bar as soon as possible. Afterwards it’s all the Cu’s turn to survive however many turns needed to get MHXA HP down to 1.

For Gilgamesh (Caster) finale, I went with this. I didn’t expect the NP def buff to be so thick it’s useless. So, yeah, I ended up just letting Ozy deal all the damages using face cards. That Nero Bride get full charge every time I killed anyone is also annoying. It doesn’t help I didn’t prepare for anything like that. So, yeah.

It didn’t even start well as killing Bunyan causes a full team debuff. Which then of course followed by Nero NP.

I wonder how I did it before. I also wonder if it’s better to just get rid of Nero first.

But hey, at least Qin saved the day getting rid the last few servants remaining (I think it was Nero and Gilgamesh).

With 2020 line up over, then it’s 2021. “Finale”. And this one is very annoying. That FGO Fandom Wiki not mentioning 1 time per turn evade buff from Fionn after first bar break is very much not helping. I ended up using two command spells because I just want to be over with this one already.

I’ll look back again and clear this proper if I have spare time.

I don’t remember how I cleared this in JP. I think it’s with Cu Alter. Or maybe Godjuna.

And lastly the Brave Eli quest. Yeah, I haven’t done the previous ones and jumped straight to this thinking it wouldn’t be too bad.

Except it was amazingly bad. I should’ve at least used Alexander or someone to remove the pierce buff etc in wave 5.

But anyway after few hours of trying I barely cleared it. Forgetting that her NP ignores def also didn’t help. I should’ve always went with NPAA in the final wave.

…and that’s it for now. There are still a few more challenge quests to be cleared.

Oh, I also rolled on the Berserker class banner hoping for more Lancelot or Herc or Cu Alter. I got none of them after 44 rolls and got Penth and Ibaraki instead. Great innit. Next year Grail Front will be slightly annoying.

As for the boxes, I’m at 68th box. I’m currently farming shop currency though so it slowed down quite a lot. I’m almost done with it though so I’ll be back farming lottery tickets soon. Or maybe the challenge quests first.

Weekly FGO vol. 97

JP

Another nothing week. Summer is coming in few days. Except it’s more like Autumn in real life.

I’ve been just farming for QP. Not really bad considering I’m farming for NA at the moment.

As for the banners, the only useful thing I got so far is Magical Girl of Sapphire. Not too bad but I need another four for best effect and bonus damage.

NA

Gilfes! Farm time. About 35 boxes so far. I’m thinking saving at least 100 silver apples for upcoming Christmas event.

Jeanne Summer worked way better than expected and it looks like I’ll be relying on her again for the last part of the event.

Meanwhile on challenge quests, I’ve been doing slowly doing them. I’ve only completed three of them.

Nothing particularly special for Touta stage. I didn’t remember how I did it before but the key is to just not attack and not using evade or guts until really needed. Attack only when releasing NP after stacking 5 or more buffs and only use defensive skill when facing enemy NP.

Brain-dead strategy for Leonidas stage. Mash for defense, Merlin for more defense and HP regen, and lastly Artoria NP as needed. If anything, the NP should be after Leonidas uses his NP, hopefully with him casting skill 1 first so the target focus only lasts one turn.

And lastly Izo stage. I initially used Sanzo to clear this but it was so wrong with her NP being useless and I didn’t swap colors enough, ended up taking too long. This one is way faster with main focus on letting Waver deal as many high damage as he can and making sure every turn ends with Arts card. Also stun from his NP sure went through pretty easily.

That’s all I’ve done. There are still a lot more left. I’ll get around doing them eventually… I think. It would be easier had I saved the comps I used last year. Also the 2019 in JP.

Weekly FGO vol. 96

JP

The Hunting Quest ended up being useful for me for all days. I used up all my gold and silver apples in the process. There are still hundreds of bronze apples but converted to gold apples, it’s only a bit over 27 so I don’t want to use too much of them.

Illya event has started… which is just a banner and some strengthening quests. The buff for Illya and Miyu are quite good though. And I have both of them albeit at only NP1. Miyu is especially better the higher her NP level is.

I’m not rolling for the banner though apart of the daily 1 paid SQ summon. Summer is coming soon.

NA

Unfortunately pre-release campaign for Gilfes only happened this week and the actual event starts next Friday. That’s two days off from my initial guess.

There’s nothing to do here apart of just farming some QP. More QP is more good. I could use some other farming but I’m just tired of the shit drop rate.

I’m saving my effort for the upcoming event. As usual I’m aiming for around 100 boxes. It’s annoying the previous year CEs can’t be reused.

Weekly FGO vol. 95

JP

Morgan banner! I went for broke and spent quite a lot to get her to NP3. I’ll continue on the daily paid SQ roll for her hoping for more NP.

Oh and I spent a bit more for Oberon later and finally got him after 252 rolls total. That was rather brutal and mental draining overall. I don’t even like him that much.

I also got a third Caster Gilgamesh, two more Fairy Tristan, one Percival, one Nightingale, and one Osakabehime along the way. That Osakabehime was a nice surprise.

I hope there isn’t anything else interesting coming up the rest of this year…

…well, summer event is coming up next month so maybe I need to hold up for a bit more.

In the meantime I’ll be doing more QP and exp card farming. Too bad there’s no hunting quest or rerun. I doubt there will be anything next week… or will there?

NA

I got four Okita Summer total. That was weird. Also annoying there’s no Lambda along the way. Nor Bunnytoria but I don’t care much about her. At least it wasn’t 6 Bunnytoria (and one Okita) like in JP two years ago.

I don’t know if I’ll retry for Lambda next year. Or maybe I will when trying to get NP5 Okita… if I have sufficient SQ by then.

The summer event itself has ended few days ago. I’ve cleared the whole thing since last week and have been just farming for QP since. Now I think about it I don’t think there’s many event which farming nodes give out a lot of QP.

As it’s over I’ve been farming for fangs. I need fangs. A lot of them. Also other mats like eggs.

Now I wrote it I realized I should switch to farming eggs so I can max Godjuna skills first. It doesn’t help I spent two eggs to unlock Salter’s Shinjuku costume.

The Salter costume was a pretty nice surprise and is way earlier compared to JP (it was February 2020). The strengthening also helped farming Camelot event quest.

Anyway, that’s it and I have no idea when the next event, loot box, will start. My guess would be pre-event campaign this Friday and then finally the event next week (or Wednesday following week).

I completely drained off my SQ but thankfully as I mentioned last week there’s nothing I’m particularly interested in coming up until Castoria which is still about 10 months away. Should be enough time to gather 1000 SQ.

Weekly FGO vol. 94

JP

More new servants! Also the pickup banner. I rolled on Valkyrie banner and got one early on. I did some more but didn’t yield anything. There was just nothing afterwards. The total was 84.

I then did 12 rolls on Sekitoba banner but didn’t get him at all. Instead I got more Koyanskaya.

And lastly on Sitonai banner, I did 16 rolls. First I got even more Koyanskaya on 7th roll then decided to just roll on and thankfully got Sitonai on the 15th. 16th was the one paid roll thing – a second Sitonai would be nice.

Another banner came up on Wednesday. It’s Oberon banner. I rolled for him as 70% NP charge would be pretty convenient. Unfortunately I didn’t get him at all and ended up spending the remaining of my quartz. The total is 90 rolls so far. I still have plenty of paid quartz so I’ll be doing one roll a day. Hopefully he’ll eventually come up. I don’t think I’ll use any more quartz or tickets otherwise. I have 24 at the moment after clearing quests and there are a few more from interludes and strengthening quests.

The outlook for summer sure is rather grim.

Oh, along the way I got not-Kaleidoscope, Liangyu, a fifth Fairy Gawain, and a second Carmilla.

I also rolled friend point gacha a bunch of times and got Habetrot to NP4.

As for the main quest itself, most of them are relatively simple.

The exception is of course the Cernunnos quest. That one is quite difficult. From what I gather people either use Himiko for long term battle or one very high damage servant buffed to the max.

I initially tried the latter but my MHXX didn’t have enough damage and it was too reliant on card draws so I then tried the Himiko method.

It worked but it still took a lot of very careful planning to pull off. I can’t even imagine how to clear it with low rarity servants. Even with welfare servants thrown in. I’m looking forward to see how this guy do it. And maybe replicate it on NA in two years.

Apparently I forgot to mention it last week but I managed to clear Demeter memorial quest using low rarity servants.

The strategy is pretty simple, clear the first bar with Lu Bu and then finish the rest with Ushiwakamaru. Alexander is required to clear the stupid def buff and Hans is the usual support.

As for Kirschtaria, I don’t quite remember how I did it. I don’t think the front line ended up doing anything and got blasted off first turn.

I did need help from a support Castoria but otherwise I think it was just having Euryale shoot her NP as often as possible.

NA

As planned, I rolled a bit on first day Bunnytoria/Okita/Lambda banner. I somehow got two Okita so I threw everything I have on that banner.

…and got jack shit. 155 rolls so far. I’ll do a bit more as I get tickets and quartz from daily login but otherwise I’ve spent everything I have. Including the tickets from clearing Prison Tower.

On the brighter side, I don’t have anything I really want until anniversary next year for Castoria. There’s also Kama right before it (or maybe afterwards due to anniversary date difference).

Back on the event, it’s mostly done and I’m now just finally spending the fever tickets for those QP.

Challenge quest was pretty easy as I went easy mode using solo Merlin. I’ve got him maxed and command coded and he cleared it without much difficulty.

The 50M QP quest on the other hand, ended up just taking a long time to finish.

Cu with event CE, Mash with def CE, and support Merlin with… Bella Lisa. Mine wasn’t maxed at this time so I had to borrow from support. This ended up stupidly simple as I only now realized that while they fire NP left and right, the damage isn’t that big. And as long Arjuna’s instant death isn’t triggered, it’s just a matter of looping Mash and Merlin’s NP. The last one took quite a long time because her class is Ruler. I should’ve equipped Mash with event CE as well.

Weekly FGO vol. 93

FGO gacha in a nutshell

JP

Anniversary! GSSR! And I rolled the banner which has Skadi in it! And I actually got her. That was nice. I finally have all the main support for each card types.

The guaranteed SR was Chiron. Could be better (Valkyrie, Fujino, Parvati, Danzou) but just getting Skadi is already a major win to me.

Now I’m free to choose whatever I like for the next GSSR that’s not Caster. Yay.

As for the free SSR, I got Tamamo for even more Arts support. I considered Sitonai and Artoria as well but went with completing support lineup for now.

All that’s left is farming some QP and caster stones and a lot of bones. By “a lot” I mean 161 of them. Also seeds. Thankfully I’ve got enough dusts and everything else… I think.

Oh I also rolled Koyanskaya and got one after 64 rolls. I’ll probably do a bit more during Valkyrie rate up day. As for the mats to level her up, just like Tamamo, I don’t have remotely enough either.

Meanwhile on the new servant coin thing, I unlocked skill 2 for a bunch of servants. I’m missing a lot of mats to properly level them up though. Also I don’t have any grails to even start leveling anyone (probably Okita) to 102+. I’m also still halfway getting Morgan to 100 (currently 94).

Looks like there are some more interesting development on the latest release of Le Fay chapter.

NA

On Sunday, got Merlin in 77 rolls. Also got spooked by Helena along the way. Also a bunch of Siegfrieds. Also one Ozymandias (now NP2).

That was overall pretty amazing roll. The extra Ozy wasn’t expected but sure is nice. He’ll definitely be useful for a lot of quests.

And lastly I did more rolls for Musashi and Osakabehime (and Carmilla). And got another Musashi Summer after 66 rolls, 11 last of which was mistakenly done using multis instead of singles. I also got Scheherazade along the way which was also not expected. Oh, and there’s Osakabehime as well. Thank god it wasn’t Carmilla. Neither are exactly useful though.

All those new servants are nice and all but I’ve got no resources to raise them all. At least the next event should be Lottery Box event. At less than 50 golden apples I should be able to hit a bit over 100 boxes.

I’m not quite done rolling yet though. There’s still Okita Summer and Lambdalilith. The plan is 11 rolls during first rate up where both are included, then another 11 during Lambdalilith banner, and finally all I have during Okita… up to NP2. I don’t think I’ll go for NP5. If I still have any sq remaining, I’ll then go on to Lambdalilith solo until NP2 of her. And if somehow I still have any left, I’ll throw the rest to the banner which has both of them.

I will most likely end up scraping for sq in interlude and strengthening quests.

As for the event itself, I’m up to date to the latest available quest. I still need to farm for item shop. Mainly gold and bronze. For some reason I’ve cleared the silver items (sans pieces).

Weekly FGO vol. 92

JP

…nothing. Have been collecting more octuplets. I’ve maxed Sanzo and now maxing Penthesilea.

FGO Fes has started but major announcement won’t come until Sunday. And probably with Lucky Bag Summoning as well.

NA

Summer 2021 has started! I rolled for Musashi and thankfully got one in 15 rolls. NP1 isn’t actually quite enough in a lot of situations so I’ll roll a bit more if I still have leftover from Merlin and Okita Summer banners. …if there’s any left that is. And if I actually manage to get them in the first place.

Otherwise, I’ll need to save some more until next year. Thankfully according to my list there won’t be anyone important until Castoria. There will be Okita Alter somewhere in the middle but it’ll be mostly for Nagayoshi. Oh, and NP2 of Kama would also be nice. Rerun of her event should be in June.

Back to current event, the plan is slowly going through the event until Merlin banner is up. Then I’ll try rolling for him, hopefully either he comes early. At worst I’ll die with loads of event CE. If it’s the former I’ll do more slow farming until Okita banner which should come next week and then finally finish the event. If it’s the latter I’ll finish the event ASAP and cry.

Weekly FGO vol. 91

JP

Finally cleared the Morgan quest. Helped by this, I noticed Morgan is very likely to attack Castoria (and Mash to lesser extent). That made coming up with correct strategy way easier as I only need to protect Castoria.

MHXA Idol was chosen for her class. It slowed things down a lot though as her NP damage is relatively low and not arts so no buff from Castoria.

With that over, I’m back to farming mats. Octuplets this time around so I can finally max Sanzo.

Oh and I counted the boxes wrong. It was 143.6 boxes total.

NA

Done with summer rerun! Well, almost. Still need to finish one more loop and a bit more of doujin power.

Challenge quest! I first tried with Arjuna Alter but he died a bit too early. So I’m back to Hokusai despite no arts buff. It took a while but it was mostly just letting Hokusai do her NP as frequent as possible. And a lot of taunts.

Summer 2020 is coming soon! Hopefully right after the rerun so it’ll be a lot of rolling fun next Sunday between NA Merlin and whatever JP 6th Anniversary will be.

Weekly FGO vol. 90

JP

NeroFes is over. I gathered a bit over 120 boxes in the end. And now opening them all…

Talking about the boxes, it sure would be nice if the box includes CE exp cards. Or maybe I should’ve rolled harder during the last year’s Yamatai-koku event…

I’ll keep that in mind for NA next year.

On the other news, last part of LB6 has been released and I’ve been grinding through it slowly. That said, apparently there’s still part of the story that’s only unlocked early next month.

As part of the release, there’s the banner thing which somehow I managed to get the SSR with 4 tickets. That’s in very stark contrast with how many rolls I needed to get Morgan. This new Lancer is pretty unique in that she can do both single target and area NP. And that her third skill charges NP to 100%. 2x area NP without a separate NP charge like Nitocris is impossible but considering recent higher difficulty quests which first two waves sometimes only have one or two enemies, this could work in her favor instead.

…I don’t think I’ll raise her NP level though. It’s not Takeuchi and summer is coming soon. Also that new support with 70% targeted NP charge.

NA

Summer Rerun has started and I got my second copy of Jeanne Summer in 58 rolls. Thankfully it only took that many rolls so I should still have good chance for rolling Merlin and Okita Summer. I currently have 224 rolls available. I should get a bit more during this event. There’s also unlock-able Prison Tower which costs 5 rare prisms and will give out 9 tickets total.

I kinda want to use the prisms for bond flame and mystic code as well though so I’m not sure how it’ll go. I currently have 0 but the rerun should net me 9 rare prisms.

Oh, I also got both Ushiwakamaru and Ibaraki Douji Summer along the way. This sure is my SSR week.

I’m not sure how far I’m at the event story but I’ll probably finish it by this weekend. Or next. Next weekend is a long one to celebrate the Olympic. I don’t really care about the Olympic but hey, national holiday.

Right afterward this should be this year’s summer event.

Weekly FGO vol. 87

JP

Ended up doing more rolls. Thankfully she came up way earlier than expected.

I guess I’m done rolling her. Or at least with upcoming summer and stuff.

Nothing much else so I’ve been doing more farming to make sure I have enough QP to level up her skills. Still pretty far away at 60M where I need around 120M I think?

NA

Gudaguda Final! Kagetora! And she fixes my lack of high damage single target lancer problem. Her being Arts based makes her a bit hard to buff until I get a Tamamo or Castoria though. Should be resolved eventually.

On farming, I think I’m about halfway done? Not sure if I need apples to finish.

Apparently I cleared the challenge quest in JP last time with Okita. Maybe I’ll do the same here except with way better supports.

Meanwhile, anniversary is coming up next week! GSSR, one time instant full ascension, free gems, and Lolinci. Not sure about the last one though. It’ll depend on how many gems and tickets I end up with.

Weekly FGO vol. 86

JP

New LB chapter. New servants. Takeuchi servant, to be more precise.

Roll I did. 100-something. It yielded nothing. There are still a few farmable SQ left in my account. Farm them I did. All of them. Interludes, free quests, strengthening, new chapter itself, and lastly bond 11+ which I can sanely attain.

But nope, no Morgan in sight. As last ditch effort 20k yens flew away and thankfully it was enough. 20k too much but at least I did get her. Yay?

I probably should’ve done the same for Skadi except I stopped at 10k last time (or more like I shouldn’t have either time). The lesson is to prepare for at least 40k if going to spend anything on this crap.

Up next is getting another copy of her… maybe next year. Or if she appears again during anniversary or something.

Considering we’ve got Takeuchi servant this time does it mean there will be no summer servant from him again this year? I don’t think I’ll spend a dime on this anymore until at least next year.

On Morgan herself, she should make a pretty good farming servant with her 50% NP charge, 20% of which is can be targeted. It’s no system but a lot of highest difficulty farming quests can’t be done using system anyway.

Oh right, the new LB itself wasn’t too difficult. I did use free Castoria support for almost all rounds (and some saberface higher rarity servants) but none of them are particularly difficult or interesting.

And then my backlog has gotten even longer.

Back to the rolls a bit, I didn’t get any other SSR servant but I did get two more Kaleidoscope so that’s nice. And five Tristan and four Gawain.

NA

…I don’t even remember what I did here. Probably just farming for QP and stuff. I need a lot of QP. Also free quests. I’ve cleared them all. All that’s left for me is some tens of interludes.

14M download campaign is coming up which means 10 tickets.

I do have about 200 rolls available here. I just hope it’s enough for one more Jeanne Summer and one Merlin.

That said, the anniversary event should give out some more SQ and stuff. And there’s Lucky Bag Summon as well for Merlin (1/45) so I’m still hopeful for that.

Weekly FGO vol. 85

JP

Dead week is dead. Or just almost dead thanks to all daily quests being open. I’ve been running the caster AP40 node for days now.

After all those farming I still only have 10 caster secret gems left. At least I finally maxed Jeanne and Illya skills. Still need a lot more for the other casters.

There will probably be new LB chapter tomorrow. I still haven’t read anything past Yuga Kshetra though.

NA

Talking about Yuga Kshetra, I cleared it here as well.

Kama cleared the Alter Ego Limbo and first bar of Arjuna Alter and the last one is finished by Kintoki (Rider). That sure is a lot of SSRs.

For comparison here’s what I used in JP back then. Support was friend Merlin.

And as for the other Arjuna Alter fight, I didn’t take its screenshot (whoops). Although I think it was Kama, Skadi, Skadi, Mash, Waver, and support Karna. Pretty much Kama doing most of the damage and then finished by Karna on the last turn. Kama’s guts ended up causing a bit of problem because it caused Karna to not be solo at the second last turn. Had to restart a bit so he actually survives.

As for JP:

Pretend the support is Karna because I also forgot to take screenshot at the right time

The strategy is taunt wall Karna, coupled with guts from Mystic Code and invulnerability from Avicebron.

And lastly the tree:

As can probably be guessed, it’s Eresh NP-ing till dead and then finished by Kintoki (Rider) and Chloe.

And JP, well,

I’m not quite sure how it worked but it did, so, yay. I didn’t have good CE here so it kinda sucked.

As that done, the final banner was also released. Yay. So I rolled 10 hoping for Asclep.

Except I got nothing. Annoyed, I did another 10 rolls. And I got Ashvattaman instead 😑

More annoyed, I did another 10 rolls. And Asclep finally appeared. With Arjuna Alter as bonus.

That it took 30 rolls for a single R servant was annoying but at least he also brought together Arjuna Alter. He definitely will be useful. Eventually, that is. I don’t have enough QP or exp cards to max him right away. Maxing Kama already costed me all of my QP. Thankfully I’m only lacking Eggs in term of materials.

And that’s it for the new LB chapter. Now I’m rushing to finish all the free quests and interludes so I have all the lost SQ back for upcoming banners. I didn’t expect to spend 90 SQ for this banner after all.

Weekly FGO vol. 84

JP

Summer rerun done. I ended up clearing the challenge quest using the team above. It’s pretty easy with this team overall. I initially tried with Sieg instead of Ishtar and using some other people instead of Merlin but that was a fail.

This one on the other hand was mostly NP and crits. Ishtar’s star generation on her NP is really convenient here. The main annoyance is still her third skill, the delayed buff which is pretty difficult to time correctly.

With that out of the way, I’m back to slowly farming QP.

Next LB chapter is supposedly coming up next week. Not sure what to expect yet but the bonus SQ is always welcome.

Oh and there’s that Lolinci banner. I did 11 roll and got nothing useful. Business as usual.

NA

The next Lostbelt, Yuga Kshetra is released. I’m not rolling for Jinako although I’ll probably do 10 or 20 for Asclepius as I mentioned before. Getting Arjuna Alter would also be useful although I’m not expecting much.

That said, there isn’t much to be done until next event, the Gudaguda Final. I’m not rolling there because there just isn’t anyone interesting to me there. Avenger Nobbu is kinda lacking in firepower, Berserker Nobbu I just don’t need, and Mori is a bit difficult to use (not to mention his insane mats requirements).

Looking at the events list it looks like the next banner I’ll roll on (besides Asclep I mentioned above) will be Summer Rerun for Jeanne Summer. I sure hope I can get her and without exhausting my SQ supply because otherwise it’ll be even more hell trying to get Merlin and Okita Summer for the main summer event this year.

Oh and as for Lolinci banner for anniversary, I’ll probably pass as well. Or maybe try 11 roll.

Weekly FGO vol. 83

JP

Only epilogue left (and the challenge quest). There are still plenty of time so I’ll try clearing it with lower rarity servants.

On side note, there’s a Fujino banner which I guess kinda makes sense? Inb4 this summer is KnK summer and there’s Fujino summer. Probably not. But one can wish.

Or maybe Tsukihime.

I did 22 rolls and thankfully got her on second 11 rolls. Also got second Penthesilea which is useful as she’s got plenty of party buffs and NP charge (for her own).

Anyway, that’s that and I’m not quite sure what to farm in the meantime until next event. I actually very rarely farm for mats at event free quest but maybe I’ll try it this time around. Can use lots of octuplets and seeds in addition of the usual proofs/dusts/bones.

NA

Hunting Quest is over so now back to slow farming. I don’t think I gathered enough exp cards during the event but oh well. I’ll wait until next super/great success rate up before using them (further) up. I’ve used some as I needed to clear space but I ended up not farming quite as hard as I would like to.

Coming up next is… next Lostbelt? I’ll slowly clear it up and maybe roll a bit for Asclepius.

Weekly FGO vol. 82

JP

Summer has started! The rerun at least. A very early one.

Oh and that Grail Front has ended. The new chest box thing sure was annoying. I guess the developer managed to find a way to force people to actually fight instead of toying around with the AI to finish the map with as few fights as possible.

Back to summer, I did 22 rolls for Illya and managed to get her (second copy) right at the end. That’s good because new summer will be coming soon and there might be someone I actually want. Or not. We’ll find out.

Still slowly progressing through the story although I think I’ve cleared half the missions and a good chunk of the store.

NA

Hunting quest! Yay. I need exactly that. Some essential mats, occasionally lots of qp, and most importantly exp cards. Each on their own is nothing special but getting all of them in single run is quite a deal.

Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get enough lancer exp cards. I did spend quite a lot of apples for that but getting over a thousand of it requires a bit too much effort.

Second day (today) is berserker cards and stakes. I don’t exactly need so much of the latter and I’ve farmed enough berserkers card so I’m taking it slowly until the next one.

I’ll need assassin cards the most but the item, horseshoe, I don’t exactly need too many of them at the moment so I don’t know if I’ll farm a lot there or just whatever. Maybe depends on if I can do it easily without too many taps.

Almost forgot but I did even more rolls on Jeanne Alter and didn’t get her. Welp. I did also get some more Salieris which is nice I guess and then two Tristans which I don’t think I’ll need because I’ve got Chloe for single target archer (although with him being quick may prove useful until Castoria arrives). The best part though, is I got Kaleidoscope. My first one. It’ll surely be useful for farming and stuff. Now I just need to get 5 more of it…

Weekly FGO vol. 81

JP

Dead week next two weeks. At least the free tickets and grail is kinda nice. Also the new strengthening quests are pretty useful. Not so sure about Ozy’s but Sanzo and Bedi are definitely made them way easier to use especially for farming. I still need to level up Sanzo’s skills though. Them caster skill stones are pretty rare.

Nothing else in the horizon although maybe Merlin gacha banner coming up next week? Weird he’s not on banner despite being featured in the event banner.

Oh and as for the grail front itself, it’s… annoying. If I ignore the gold chest box, it’s still pretty easy. Things get very annoying once I try fetching them. Even more annoying the content isn’t all that useful. Low total cost allowed, very high master movement cost, and that chest box combined made the event this time very annoying. I guess I’ll ignore those boxes first time and come back later if I feel like to.

NA

Meanwhile here, the current event is even deader than JP for me because I’m not reading it again.

In the mean time, I did 20 rolls even though I shouldn’t and of course I didn’t get Jalter. I did get Salieri though so that’s nice I guess.

Also Arjuna NP2. I don’t really find him all that useful though. He’s got no survival skill beyond debuff immunity and some heals. His damage buff only lasts for one turn and his NP charge only charges for 25%. Alone he’s not all that bad but I’ve got Napoleon and Jeanne Summer as well. And both provide some party buff better overall buff.

Weekly FGO vol. 80

???

JP

Event is mostly done. I’ve also cleared the challenge quest… kind of.

It certainly wasn’t the smartest way to clear it. I used double Castoria and Musashi Summer to just bulldoze my way through.

May or may not look into clearing it again later.

I also still haven’t cleared the store yet. Maybe later this weekend as I’m currently busy in NA.

NA

I ended up doing 20 rolls for Reines and got Napoleon instead (?). Well, that certainly wasn’t expected. He’s also pretty expensive to level up with loads of mats required for the skills.

Meanwhile I’m almost done with the event itself just need to get a few more event currencies.

And then the raid event. All Barbatos all day. Currently at 86 kills but I still need a lot more QP and mats. I hope I can get at least 200? The team is rather annoying though requiring order change because I don’t have enough firepower otherwise.

Weekly FGO vol. 79

JP

There were some weird rolls. Besides of those two copies of MHXA above (while not getting Nitocris which I actually wanted for NP2), I also got one Jeanne (the original).

Oh, and I also got Mordred for some reason. I sure wish I got Artoria instead for a saber. Mordred is just barely more useful over Artoria Alter with her 30% NP charge (vs 20%) but she’s got no party buff. More useful for challenge quests but considering she’s got no evasion/guts/invulnerability, I would rather use… anyone else.

I did 44 rolls in total among those two banners. The two MHXA were actually obtained with just 11 rolls which was even weirder.

The event itself is pretty okay, I guess. Pretty simple and nothing too annoying.

NA

Reines event is coming up in a few hours. I don’t know if I’ll roll for her. Maybe next time she comes around. I really need to save up for upcoming banners.

Meanwhile past few days I’ve been just farming for QP and exp cards and strengthening quests.

Weekly FGO vol. 78

JP

They just started pre-start campaign for the Waltz collaboration event. That sure is weird. I expected a rerun but we got this another non-event instead.

Jeanne is on pickup and her second skill got a very useful upgrade. Maybe I should do one roll or something.

Helena’s second skill upgrade is also pretty useful. Now if only her damage isn’t so painfully low…

NA

Nothing announced for NA and the Gudaguda event is still ongoing. All that’s left for me is finishing three last missions and then challenge quest.

I need more QP…

Also EXP cards. A lot of both of them. Leveling up four SSRs isn’t easy, yo.

Weekly FGO vol. 77

JP

Still no actual events. What’s with servant strengthening quests right after hunting quests…

So in the meantime I’ve been farming in Charlotte.

Let’s see if there’s anything next week. I kinda expect a rerun.

NA

As can be guessed from screenshot above, I ended up rolling a lot for Okita Alter. 200 rolls to be exact.

Interestingly, along the way I got two other SSR servants. One of them is Ozymandias which is pretty useful thanks to his plainly high damage and have party NP charge. The other one is Nightingale which I’ve never had before. I’m not sure how useful she’ll be.

One thing for sure though, I don’t have remotely enough resource max anyone. Mainly QP and exp cards. This will take a while.

At 1.28% SSR rate, I hope this doesn’t affect my rolls for Jeanne and Okita Summer. And Merlin. I don’t know if I’ll have enough SQ to roll Lambda Lilith. Or even just the first three I mentioned. I have about 500 SQ at the moment which is about 160 rolls whereas it’s generally recommended to have about 300 rolls to make sure getting the target SSR.

As for the event, I’ve mostly finished… whatever can be finished. The second part will be unlocked tomorrow.

On unrelated note, Bella Lisa CE will be finally available tomorrow. I didn’t realize it’s out in JP on 2019-02 which means NA is late by two months.

Weekly FGO vol. 76

JP

I ended up going the easier way on the challenge quest and all other quests due to lack of time 🙂

I also noticed the CE from SQ gacha this time give way more advantage compared to usual CE. Instead of boosting drops, it boosts damage up to 100%. Usually those are for free CEs but for some reason it’s SQ gacha here.

Rushing tower event at the end is pretty bad.

With that ended, it’s now Hunting Quest time. The bonus is surprisingly useful so far and not just the first day. It’s fangs and octuplets today. I’m pretty lacking of both so it’s just perfect. It would be easier had I maxed my Sanzang’s skill levels but the current one is just barely enough.

No news on the FGO Waltz collab (?) event yet. Golden week perhaps? And people have been guessing it’ll be Reines rerun soon… which will be fun because it’ll be the first run in NA sometime end of this month.

NA

After one empty week, another Gudaguda rerun is coming up tomorrow. Maybe I’ll roll 10 times for Okita Alter…

Talking about rolling, I ended up doing 50 more rolls which thankfully ended up in getting one Kama. Yay?

Weekly FGO vol. 75

JP

I was too slow and now rushing through the entire thing 😀 Currently about to finish the main story… after which will be another 100 floors of hell waiting. And like some tens of rather difficult quests. The challenge quest seems rather annoying but kinda doable if I just go all out with Himiko. Thankfully I got the SSR event CE which gives 50% bonus attack.

NA

Done with Ooku. Just like last time in JP, I didn’t quite clear the challenge quest and ended up with double Skadi and Zerkerlot. And one full revive command spell.

I also did a bit more rolls. Way more than I should’ve, I think. And I still got nothing. Considering I’m still at 16 SSR servant from 1387 rolls, I guess that’s just par on course but that also means I can’t really complain if the next 200 rolls don’t yield me anything. I have at least Jeanne summer and Merlin rolls planned this summer. I do have over 350 rolls available for me so hopefully I should have enough rolls to force through the odds?

After checking my list, apparently Okita Alter banner is coming up in two weeks. Maybe I’ll do ten or so.

Weekly FGO vol. 74

JP

It’s a new tower event. First third isn’t quite “tower” but overall it’s the same tower system.

Still going through it slowly.

On the other hand, I did 11 rolls for Nero Bride and got nothing.

Unrelated but apparently a new event is announced already. No date yet but it’ll have a new MHXA as welfare. The first welfare Foreigner. Now the only missing class for welfare is just Avenger.

NA

Ooku time! I did 30 rolls in the end and got nothing as well.

Same thing as JP, still going through it slowly. Although I think I’m about past halfway. There are still quite a lot of corridors to browse through…

Weekly FGO vol. 73

JP

Oh wow this week has ended already. Nothing much happened. I’ve been mostly just farming for QP and sometimes check Interludes (as they’re half AP at the moment).

New event starts next week. No hints of participating servants or anything yet.

NA

Similar to JP, nothing here either. Also farming for QP. As can be kind of seen from above screenshot, I’ve got enough mats but no QP to max her skills. At current rate I wonder how long it’ll take me to finally get enough QP for her… Not to mention I’ve got couple other SSR servants that is also in similar situation.

No announcement of Ooku yet but they’ll be having some broadcast next week so maybe it’ll start right afterwards or something. I don’t remember Ooku being particularly difficult in term of the battles but clearing the maps will involve a lot of tapping and loading. I hope they include the latest patch in JP rerun which sped things up.

Weekly FGO vol. 72

Finally maxed; both fou and grail

JP

Finished the event and now back to farming QP.

Cleared the challenge quest copying from this guy.

Not quite the exact same (especially the skill levels) but close enough allowing me to clear it.

No announcement yet for the next event…

NA

Still need more farming here. It’ll be pretty close.

Cleared the quest with my only avenger. Pretty easy with double skadi.

Next event here would be Ooku. It’s over one week apart in JP but maybe NA will move up the schedule to allow running Final Honnoji before anniversary? NA anniversary is quite a bit earlier compared to JP so that makes things more fun. And slightly more difficult to predict.

Weekly FGO vol. 71

JP

Chaldea Boys Collection 2021 event has started. Phantom Thief Amakusa this time. Jing Ke also got buff for more damage against enemies with King trait.

The event itself is just usual event with no mission. The mats in store this time are all useful which is great.

I did some (50) rolls for Amakusa but got none. I did get the rate up SR though and a few event CEs.

Currently I’m at 23 SSR servant after 3008 rolls. That works out at 0.76% which is kinda low. I’ll see how low I can go.

NA

Annoyingly for NA I haven’t finished the event. I made mistake farming wrong node for too long and ended up clearing the main quest very late. I’m catching up now with just few more quests remaining. I think there’s at least one higher difficulty quest remaining but I haven’t unlocked it.

Up next would be Mortiary event. No rolls planned here.

Weekly FGO vol. 70

JP

Valentine is over. Time sure flies. All that’s left is getting all the chocolates.

Current event is some download campaign which is nice I guess? The free ticket and fous especially.

Cleared the remaining strengthening quests as well since they’re half AP at the moment.

Next event will be some rerun maybe? White day is still a bit far.

NA

Still on BB event. I think I’ve cleared a good chunk of it. I still haven’t finished the main story yet though because I want to get all the debuffs available for the easiest fight.

This one will still be ongoing for a bit more but at current rate I should be able to finish it in few days, leaving a week or so of nothing to do.

Weekly FGO vol. 69

JP

I cleared the event. Except the last CE drop and opening all the chocos (and gifts).

Had some… difficulty clearing the challenge quest so I stole this guy’s setup. Well, almost. I replaced Andersen with another Castoria so it’s quite a lot easier.

NA

BB event has started. Fun ahead. I cleared one “fun” already though. King Protea fight sure is way easier with Jeanne and Merlin and Mash combo. I should’ve used plugsuit and swap in Jalter Summer instead of waiting for the def to be low enough and so I can crit damage to finish her in one turn.

And now I just need to slowly go through the main story…

Oh and open those valentine things.
