I haven’t build any new one from scratch since previous Ryzen. Even that one was only CPU + Motherboard + RAM. This one is almost full set except GPU (and optical drive).Continue reading
Oh hey, double digit of this thing.
It’s new year. It means GSSR. It’s per-class summon this time so I went with Caster hoping for Skadi.
As can be seen above, I’ve got no Skadi. At least I got the second best result and now I’ve got the whole Prillya set.
More Asclepius is welcome as I only had NP1 of him before. NP2 is pretty much all one really need for that extra gauge bar and 2000 HP. NP3+ isn’t really useful.
Those extra Caster Cu are also welcome though I still need one more for NP5.
Now I think about it, I still have no Caster Gilles. Not that he’s useful at all but it would be nice just to complete my collection.
I’ve finished almost all of existing Interludes and Strengthening Quests and now back to mana prisms as the New Year’s Da Vinci Store items cost over 2000 mana prisms total.
Meanwhile GSSR here, I got the worst result 😐 Even Ozy or Medb would be better.
The thing is, I have enough ST rider already. Rider Kintoki, I’ve also got Maid Alter. Heck, even Ushiwakamaru is a pretty good one as well.
On the farming side, I’m still farming exp cards as usual. I think I need to farm some QP sometime later though. Maybe after the half AP campaign is over.
Late post due to various reasons.
No events and I probably should be finishing EoR or reading Lostbelt 4 so I can continue to Lostbelt 5. But nope, I’ve been grinding dusts and shields for a while now.
I’ve finished all the basic stuff for Christmas event. Only some pieces and monuments left and then boxes. Currently at my 12th boxes and as it’s ending in two-ish days I wonder how far I can go. I’m also still grinding for the shop so it’s not as “fast” as it could be. However fast a few months old account can be, that is.
I also finished the challenge quest. It sure was rather easy with Merlin.
Christmas has ended. I think I redid the challenge quest. No command seal but I think it was with double Merlin or something stupid like that.
Atlantis will be the last “event” this year so I guess I’ll try finishing reading Yuga before starting that one. I still need to finish Shimousa and Salem as well. One of these days maybe.
Otherwise I’m currently trying to finish free quests and interludes as they’re half AP until Wednesday. I checked it just now and apparently I have at least 15 interludes I can read…
Only three nodes for the free quests though so I guess I’ll rush the interludes tonight.
Christmas has started! (?). I didn’t know it will only last 9 days until a while ago. I didn’t remember it was 10 days in JP before as well. This weekend will be fun grinding.
Oh and I did 10 rolls and that caster gil above is the only gold servant I got. Whee.
Before the event started, I made good progress on Agartha. Finished Colombus Heracles stage with a bit of difficulty. Using Merlin and Kintoki Rider sure made stuff easier.
And so the Quetz arc has ended. Too bad they cut out the free-fall partContinue reading
And here’s the last episode for this season.Continue reading
And lastly WWY complete version songs. Five tracks are included and they each extend the version used in the movie and included in the soundtracks.
My main interest, Grand Escape, sure felt a bit different with the extended version. It’s no longer slow buildup and end in high note in single run but instead with ups and downs and finally peaked at nearby the end with a bit more cooldown afterwards. The impact is reduced but still good regardless.
The rest are simple improvement over the soundtracks version.
Karaoke/instrumental version isn’t included though 😔
Soraao – or the full title Sora no aosa o shiru hito yo, the soundtracks. I’m not actually sure why I wanted this. I guess I’ll figure it out by listening to it 🤔
It’s a thing. Except full version of the one song I liked most is not included in here: Yesterday (by Official Hige Dandism) is only in movie version. Whoops.
Oh well that means another 3k expenditure because the song is only available in their latest album.
I didn’t use to buy soundtrack CDs (except Tenmon and Shinkai-related) but the last few movies I just felt like I need to buy them as well.
That reminded me I should check when the blu-ray of this (and the following two CDs) will be released.
Barely hitting 25 boxes, maybe will do a bit more though I kind of want to redo the challenge quest. But no time =[
Slowly going through Agartha at the moment. Still the easy parts. I remember having some difficulty with later battles like against a ruler demon god and a pair of Colombus and Heracles. That was with low rarity only servants though so this one should be easier (especially the ruler).
It’s a thing. It’s pretty fun. It’s Lupin (the 3rd).
The 3D is fine. It still has the Lupin feel.
More Rin (well, pretty much every episode from now on?).Continue reading
So we’re down to one last episode ;_; Is there even enough time to solve everything.Continue reading
Christmas is over! Or at least the main story. “Cleared” challenge quest as well. Just need a lot of adjustments for the correct clearance.
Still no 5th event CE drop though 😔
Farmed a lot, strengthened whatever can be strengthened. This one’s Christmas is in two weeks, I guess?
I guess I remembered stuff right. The tsundere-ness and gems-loving-ness of
Rin Ishtar is way more fun in animated form though.
Things started heating up. And explodes.Continue reading
Uh, it’s Tsunako’s circle. Apparently this is their first actual doujinshi ever? No lewd inside, just cutes. Also some interesting background story on how this book happened.
Nothing much apart of occasional hunting quests. New event is coming in 18-ish hours though so there’s that.
Free archer servant this time. I have about 110 exp cards for archer which, with enough luck, should be enough for maxing her level.
I don’t think I’ll have enough tickets for 10 rolls this time so I won’t be rolling anything this time around. Maybe next time though I think there won’t be any more events until next year? Considering it’ll be a release of new chapter mid next month and I don’t really want to roll on non-events.
The box content seem pretty useful as I’m currently running low on some of them. I only have 26 gold apples though so that kind of sucks.
Half AP grinding quests are still going so I’ve been doing that. It’s quite useful as I’m currently really lacking exp cards. I’ve final ascended Saber Alter, leveled up Saber Alter Summer, and grailed Kiyohime up to level 96. Just 4 more levels to 100.
Next coming events should be just Salem release and then followed by Altera Santa event.
Which reminded me I need 200 more archer exp cards here to max Altera. She’s a pretty good single target archer though I don’t really like her design and dialogue lines much.
Spoiler after the breakContinue reading
That was some explosions. And it looks like there will be more involvement with Foreign Affairs for this case?
Not sure how long this will be. Could this be the final case?
Okita pickup was up! Rolls were done! No Okita showed up.
214 total rolls, 0 SSR servant. Full log here.
1% rate… I’m not even getting half of it.
That was a lot of fight. And we’re getting closer to Bifrost. Only four episodes left! Quite a few hints here and there about (in)dependency on the system.
This commentary is very low effort and I should’ve kept memo or something when watching it.
That was a rather huge Gorgon. Also Ushiwakamaru next week ;_;
Not sure what the dream about Solomon was for.
I spent a bit more SQ and still ended up with 0 Skadi. Oh well.
And then I rushed through lostbelt 4. And still got no Skadi. At least now I’ve cleared the main quests. Needed to use Merlin for first Arjuna fight after trying for over 3 hours with just low rarity and Karna support.
There are still Shimousa and Salem remaining though. I’m kind of rushing it but not really.
Finished event quests including the thankfully easy challenge quest.
Still need to farm a lot of cakes though.
Pickup Okita coming this Friday. That will be exciting. I just hope I can pull at least one. I have 186 rolls available at the moment which I hope will be enough? I need at least twice that to be on safe side but that’s all I managed to save so far after the initial spending. I’ll find out in few days…
136 pulls and 0 Skadi in sight. Not even any ☆5 servants. I did get 4 ☆4s – Nursery Rhyme, Heracles, Vlad lancer, and Fionn.
My current overall stats on 1503 pulls:
|Type||Rarity||Total||Percentage (difference to base)|
The numbers seem quite different to the promised rate…
Update: I missed some single pulls whoops. I guess it’ll be a while until I get another ☆5 servants…
Update 2019-11-23: I missed two GSSR not excluded correctly so the actual number is a bit worse than the table above indicates.
Finally finished this after unlocking it weeks ago. Most of the quests are relatively easy without needing any higher rarity servants. The only exception is the last one which apparently is doable with double Mash and Euryale but I had problem making it work with the closest one being Euryale, Mash, and Andersen. Except Andersen died pretty early and replaced by backup Merlin and the screenshot above is the end result (Merlin died one or two turns before).
A rather old sound track CDs. It’s Melty Blood. It’s got Sion for the cover. And Arcueid. Good stuff.
I already have rip of it in some form but the first track sounded a bit weird and it’s only 192kbps mp3. Found it cheap in Suruga-ya so I grabbed one to find out myself.
Well the result is it sounded mostly the same. At least I finally legally have this one now. Only took a few years.
Oops I forgot about this one.
As per screenshot above, I got another copy of MHXA. Nice, considering I only spent 26 tickets for her. Didn’t get anything else interesting though.
Finished all the challenge quests and stuff. It’s kind of annoying the real challenge quest is a one time quest. Even more annoying I cleared with some stupid team (Bunnytoria and Ishtar and Merlin). I’ll try some lower rarity clear next year if I still play this game by then.
The event is ending soon but no announcement so far. It should be rerun of Christmas 2018. We haven’t gotten our free ☆4 servant and the accompanying campaign either.
I also heard weird rumor like Saber Wars 3 instead of Christmas 2019. That would be weird…?
The announcement should come sometime this week… Maybe.
8M download campaign thingy is ongoing. I’m not pulling though as I’m not much into gramps.
Jailter has started as well and I’ve played it once before it’ll be skipfest and rushing whatever I can rush.
I didn’t manage to gather enough exp card to level Jailter to 80. Not even 70 at just ~100 total. 2x super/great success rate is still ongoing which should help though. Also there will be 300 additional exp cards which after subtracting for Mash and Mech Eli I should still have at least 85 left so it could be enough if I’m lucky enough, I guess?
Oh well, farming time!
The first underworld visit seems a bit underwhelming though I guess that’s how it works considering he was only accompanied by Fou. Next visit should be more interesting including seeing Ishtar’s problem animated.
And then there’s still the mystery of Ushiwakamaru attire.
I thought current case will end by this episode but I was wrong. Oh well that’s fine but there are just too many people involved I can’t track who’s who anymore. I probably should rewatch it. Spoilers ahead.Continue reading
