Weekly FGO vol. 52

JP

The Gudaguda event ended up giving lots of new expressions for Okita. Yay.

The raid was a bit surprising and got quite a few much needed fangs. Still not quite enough to max out Salter summer though. And as it’s the second most popular node, I didn’t have much else to farm so I ended up hitting random nodes both for event shop currency and some skill gems. Mainly caster skill gems. Didn’t get much though.

As predicted(?) last week, there’s also more building quests. I’ve already gotten enough materials so that was easy.

The challenge quest was rather interesting. I ended up borrowing a high damage lancer (Scathach) paired with Waver to defeat Nobukatsu. And then Okita in the back to finish off Nobbu.

And now instead of Halloween, we’re getting a Christmas rerun instead…? Where’s even Samba rerun.

So, um, yeah. It’s Nightingale Christmas. Apparently I didn’t do much last year. Not even remotely proper challenge quest clearance (I most likely used some command seals). The lottery box is limited to 10 this time as per usual rerun so there’s even less thing to do now.

Maybe I’ll try clearing the challenge quest proper this time.

Also did like 22 rolls for the Astolfo saber and got zilch. Not even SR/SSR event CE.

NA

Oniland! Finally a single target caster. Although technically the role can be fulfilled by either Mech Eli or Jalter summer, a proper caster is sometimes useful especially for the half damage.

At any rate, going through the event rather quickly this time. By quickly I mean 5 turns farming because I use full event CE (hence quick) which means I need to fill up NP on the first wave. Now at 1.2M points I’m pretty close at maxing the damage and it sure is a lot of damage.

There will be raid coming soon so that will be fun. I don’t remember how it goes but it drops Aurora Steel. I need a lot of steels. Almost 100 of them. I hope I can collect enough from this single raid.

Suddenly more Gudaguda. Complete with raid. It’s over in about two days though so that was short.

Also suddenly more Okita costume. Now with ponytail and hakama. That’s nice although I’d prefer a completely new art rather that just variation of existing one.

The second/extra part of the event is coming later today. I hope it’ll involve building more craps.

On semi-related note, I managed to get NP2 Okita on my sub account on my 110th roll. Nice.

Also nice I got Himiko on my 12th roll. I mainly wanted CE (and got none) and planned for 22 rolls but this is better, I guess.

Timing-wise, it doesn’t look like we’ll get Space Ishtar rerun this year? Either that or they’re pushing main “Halloween” event to next month.

Or maybe this Gudaguda will end up as Halloween. Unlikely, I’d say.

NA

Event done! With Cu and Skadi for Challenge Quest as I mentioned last week.

There’s supposed to be new Interludes before Oniland but it’s not yet announced. Cu Alter is rather interesting but I’m still saving my SQ for next year summer (Okita and Merlin).

In the meantime I’m farming for some mats so I can finish leveling up skills (and base level) for servants with NP charge. I also need some more QPs.

And sure enough I didn’t reach 100 boxes. Welp.

Then for some reason the dev thought it’s good idea to have hunting quest right after box gacha event.

Some were pretty useful like octuplets, aurora steel, chains, and spinal fluid. Especially the last one I need a lot of them.

That said, the immediate thing I need is actually dragon fang which didn’t make it this time. I need at least 177 of them because Salter summer takes that many for maxing her skills. I also need a lot of seeds.

Now I’m looking at it, I’m not sure why I’m farming for dusts and proofs.

New event later today. Most likely a rerun?

On unrelated note, I tried NP2-ing Okita on my sub account but she still hasn’t come after over 100 rolls. Combined with Castoria fail, it’s been over 350 rolls since my last SSR servant on that account.

NA

Mech Eli rerun wheee.

As expected, farming is slow but at least it’s efficient? I’ve just finished all the missions and all that’s left is clearing the shop and challenge quest.

I wondered how I did challenge quest last time… and I didn’t. I haven’t finished Solomon at the time it seems.

I think I cleared it on my JP account using low rarity servants. It was probably the usual taunt team with Cu as main attacker.

Up next is Oniland. That one will provide my much-needed aurora steel. Apparently it’s got raid quest as well which should be hopefully relatively easy with Cu and Skadi.

The event is probably overall relatively easy as well considering I did it twice at simultaneously on both JP accounts in 2018.

I’m 10 boxes short from 100 boxes. I don’t think I’ll be able to hit 100. Oh well.

Next event is still not announced. Maybe Space Ishtar rerun? That may drive people crazy trying to get her to complement Castoria.

Lack of exhibition quest this time is still a bit unfortunate.

NA

Third time exhibition quests for me means I’ve got quite some hang of it. Or just back record on how I cleared them.

For my own reference next year, here’s some details on how I did each of them.

Touta

The easiest one. Can be completed with solo Cu origin. Or solo Kagetora as I did last year.

Leonidas

Unfortunately I don’t really remember how I cleared this one. I think it was Nitocris, Mash, and Waver in the front? And then Georgios, Avicebron, and Cu Alter on the back? Maybe. Something around killing as many henchmen as possible with Nitocris NP.

Izo

Uh, here I introduce the taunt wall team.

This isn’t the exact team but it’s pretty close. I think. Maybe replace Georgios and Kintoki with Leonidas and Caster attacker or something. Or maybe it was Mech Eli? Anyone who can deal enough damage to assassin.

Jaguarman

This used to be pretty difficult for me in JP. But that was with low rarity (+Okita, etc) restriction. There’s no such restriction here so the team similar to one in Izo is back. Now with Okita because lancer and berserker. In hindsight it’s good thing I brought her otherwise Cu can’t quite defeat Nobbu with his buster card and NP.

Surprisingly I cleared this in one go. The experience in JP paid off.

Sheba

I think I failed this first time due to not paying attention to the gimmicks. Second run with Kintoki, Mash, and Merlin (I think?) allowed me to clear this one. Nothing much on strategy apart of just paying off all the loans and properly do it mainly for the attacker.

MHXA

This one was fun. With idea from this video, I did it with my own spin.

The team is Skadi, Cu origin, and Cu alter on the front and Avicebron, Waver, and Cu caster (I think?). Plugsuit was employed so I can break the first bar on first turn. Gandr was used so I can properly get rid of that DX spriggan which grants MHXA buff removal on normal attacks.

That one costed Cu alter HP drop to 1. In the end all the arrow protections held up.

Looking again, I should’ve also tried getting rid of Sleepy Mochi which granted full recovery. That should reduce number of turns required. At 900k HP I’m not sure if it’s actually doable though.

Finale

So that team in Izo section is actually for this one. And it worked so well because of how Nero just keep spamming her NP every time someone is defeated. The strategy pretty much boils down to taunt all the time, maybe with flee/invulns. Billy and Nero are put off until last moment.

And that’s it!

The event has ended as well and my final box count is at 72. Not too bad but still not enough caster skill gems to bring everyone to at least skill level 4.

I managed to max up Okita, 8/8/8 Valkyrie, 6/10/7 Janne Summer, 1/6/10 Anastasia, and various other useful skill level ups. Due to lack of Aurora Steel I still can’t max up Skadi but I’ve got enough dusts remaining so all that’s left is just those steels. And lore. I only have one lore remaining.

As for level and ascensions, there are still lots of servants to be leveled up. I do have quite a lot of bones and proof of hero but I may have better use of them so I’m holding back spending them on random servants.

Lastly, it’s now Mech Eli rerun and 3T farming is rather difficult. At least clearing the missions should be easy now with all events CE maxed from the start.
