Server updates

I thought this will be the last update for this server this year but then I remembered I will update the SSD storage soon.

I don’t remember if I’ve mentioned this but I bought two cheap sticks of ECC RAMs. Annoyingly the cheaper one turned out to be rather defective so I went on getting another cheap stick. Thankfully my second gamble worked and now the system is running on ECC in most of the stacks. The end cost is about 24k including the loss from defective stick.

In the process I realized the system has been running with just two fans – one intake and one exhaust. I got that fixed by adding three more fans so the total is now three intakes (two at the front, one at bottom) and two exhaust (back and side).

I’ll probably move the side exhaust to the top sometime later because it’s a bit too close to the bottom intake fans. Moving to the top may cause another problem though as it’ll be blowing warm air to my router which is located on top of the case. The top case is already rather crowded so I can’t move it anywhere else.

Now I think about it, I’ll probably keep it like this for now.

The other upgrade (a pair of 500GB SSD) coming soon should fix the lack of space for my home directory (which is shared with root filesystem whoops).

Fate/Requiem event. The dice rolling game is kind of interesting? It doesn’t really do anything apart of making it difficult entering nodes though lol.

Didn’t roll for anything because the best one is the welfare.

Almost done with the story. Still need to actually finish it though. One last chapter.

I checked the challenge quest and I’m not sure how difficult it’ll be. At least the main enemy is lancer which means at worst I can try using Okita.

NA

Hunting… quest…

I didn’t have enough grail for Okita though so she’s currently stuck at level 96 😔

Next event is Gudaguda featuring Okita Alter! I don’t have much SQ left though and I think Skadi takes priority at the moment. Maybe I’ll try just 10 pulls. Hopefully that’ll be enough (lol).

With the only event being half AP training grounds, there aren’t much to do. Or anything at all apart of just doing the usual mana prism farming.

I was halfway through Salem but paused because mana prism.

Fate/Requiem event is coming soon. I have no clue about the series itself 🙃

NA

Similarly in NA, there’s Holmes event but it’s just a purely story event so there’s nothing much here either.

I did finish Salem and maxed Shiki along the way. That costed a lot of bones. 108 of them to be precise.

Still slowly going through free quests and stuff hoping to get one more Okita. She hasn’t appeared again so far.

After Holmes and hunting quest week, Okita Alter event is coming up. I have no sq though so maybe next year during rerun… but then again Okita Summer will be around so I’m not sure.

I didn’t want to think too much on challenge quest so I cleared it with all the ☆5 supports and my Okita 😎

I ended up scraping for SQ during the last Okita Alter banner but still no NP3. In the end I did 51 rolls.

I finished Shimousa along the way though so that’s nice. I can finally upgrade Fuuma’s NP.

No new event in sight yet.

NA

Okita banner! 216 rolls total for two Okitas. Yay? Or more like 432 if counting my previous failed rolls. That almost rivals my 300 rolls for single Merlin. And still hasn’t topped my 484 rolls for a single Musashi Summer (although I didn’t really aim for her at the time).

I also got Arjuna along the way. And a bunch of ☆4 servants. Annoying there’s still no Kaleidoscope. I got one Imaginary Element but I still need two more to limit break it.

It looks like I’ll be relying on (double) Waver or Arash or Nitocris for the foreseeable future.

Current plan is still more or less the same: 10 pulls for each event if there’s anyone interesting, and save the rest for Skadi and Okita Summer. And maybe Okita Alter.

As I got curious if there will even be anyone interesting until Skadi (apart of Valkyrie), I did a quick check and there’s Okita Alter (and Izo) and Salter Summer it seems? I’m not even sure how many SQ I can gather until then considering I’m currently at 0.

I do have 91 paid SQ but I’ll be saving them for next 3 years of GSSR. Assuming I’ll still play this until 2023. Or if the game still even exist.

As for the event itself, I’m almost done, just need to do last few farming. The challenge quest for this one is relatively easy thanks to all the event CE’s bonus damages.

Weekly FGO vol. 28

I actually almost forgot about this post. At least there should be some more content in few days.

JP

Apparently I managed to get a single copy of Jalter as screenshotted above. It took me 68 rolls to get her. I did another 53 but got nothing.

With Gudaguda Final rerun’s Okita Alter, I did some more rolls with whatever tickets and gems I have left and managed to get no Okita. At least I got two more Nagayoshi so he’s NP3 now.

I sure could use NP3 Okita Alter but oh well.

On the event itself, I think I’m halfway done farming. And as the extra events are just unlocked today, those are still ongoing as well. There’s about one week remaining so it shouldn’t be too difficult.

I’m not sure about the challenge quest though. I think I did clear it last time with low rarity servants but I sure don’t remember how. I hope I left some screenshots I can refer so I don’t need to find it out again.

Oh, and I cleared Olympus during the 0 AP campaign. It sure was annoying in a lot of ways. Haven’t read the story though as I’m backlogged as far back as Yuga.

NA

Oh right, there was Apocrypha event two weeks ago. With the power of Spartacus and double Waver, the challenge quest sure was easy.

I also grailed him to 80 as can be seen halfway in the screenshot above. I’ll probably get him to 90 as well here. Or maybe 100 🤔 He’s generally useful with good skills and NP, just lacking in stats because of 1☆.

Meanwhile, it’s Gudaguda Meiji Restoration here. They skipped the Holmes event for reasons (apparently they just don’t do real life collab events?). That means no NP upgrade of Taiga or Bedivere for now.

Okita banner should be coming next Thursday I think? It’d be pretty annoying if they skip Okita banner as that’s her last banner even in JP. I have 488 sq and 13 tickets which amount to 175 rolls. Combined with my previous failure with 216 rolls, I sure hope those will be enough to get at least one.
