The Imaginary Scramble event is done. That sure took a while to finish. At least the currencies farming itself wasn’t too bad.
I didn’t have much time for challenge quest so I just go with easy route:
Not exactly easy at over 25 turns and wrong team composition (alter ego when most of the enemies are knights) but I did clear it in one attempt.
Up next is Lostbelt chapter 5.5. No idea if it’s time limited event or not.
There’s also 2.2M download except there’s no free SR this time. Welp. I hope they still do it sometime later (maybe on the new chapter release?).
Lostbelt chapter 3 has been released. As planned I got Waver to bond 11. Up next will be either Nitocris or Arash. Probably the latter but I generally prefer the former for farming because using Arash is kinda slow.
There’s also the Thanksgiving banner. I rolled for Ishtar 32 times but got that caster above instead. Not that I’m complaining because she’s quite a bit more useful for my team at the moment. Ishtar’s high damage is certainly nice but I also have Jannu summer which is while her damage is not quite as high, she’s still pretty good. The 40% NP charge is a bit lacking compared to Ishtar’s 50% but it should be workable. Hopefully.
Single target high damage caster with NP charge skill will certainly be useful in quite a few situations. I just need to gather enough skill stones and QP for her.
As for the new chapter itself, I don’t plan on doing it anytime soon. The earliest will be once the half AP daily quests campaign is ended which is in three days.
Still slowly going through the event. The story part seems pretty long. The challenge quest seems to be rather difficult according to people at AppMedia FGO wiki.
There’s nothing else otherwise. There’s no indication of free SR yet. Hopefully they still do it this year in addition to the free SSR earlier this year. Otherwise my Valkyrie is stuck at NP1 ;_;
As per screenshot above, I managed to get another Ereshkigal ( ﾟ ヮﾟ)
At NP2, she’s quite a bit more powerful. She’s especially useful for this account because I don’t have any Kaleidoscope or MLB Imaginary Magecraft (fourth one in the screenshot above).
My main goal was getting another Taiga beacuse I severely lack good single target lancer until next year’s Kagetora. I did get another one although I wished for at least two for NP3. But I got Ereshkigal instead so that’s even better in a different way.
My roll stats is now a bit weird. Hopefully I can still get my targets next year.
As for the event itself, I’ve almost done just need to do a bit more farming for the gold currency and the sand. The challenge quest was relatively easy brute-forced with Zerklot and double Skadi and finished by Okita. I sure wish my Zerklot is NP2 or higher. Or maybe MLB Black Grail.
Upcoming event is not an event but new main story. I’m not rolling anything here. Dreamfire, the max bond upgrade is very much welcome. I’ll need at least three at the moment for Waver, Arash, and Nitocris. Spartacus is also dangerously close to be maxed.
I only have enough rare prisms for one more dreamfire and the next free RP I can obtain (short of NP6 SR/SSR) will be quite a bit later in April. At least there will be a free one in January so that will do by then.
The new event has started. It’s got two new SSR servants; one of who has been waited for by lots of people.
I’m not interested in either so I’m not rolling.
The mechanic this time is rather interesting and thankfully simple. Although figuring out the most efficient way to reveal the map may take longer than I would like to so I ended up just opening whatever I feel like to.
As for the farming itself, thanks to me not having many event item bonus CE, I can just equip Imaginary Element to everyone and NP away. It’s already pretty much expected when they announced the damage bonus thing so that’s nice. The only rather annoying thing is at 75%, it’s not quite enough for some servants who only have 20% NP charge.
Free SR arrived. I said last week I may get Valkyrie. But after some (farming) considerations, I ended up getting Lancelot instead. As expected from the double Skadi system (second) main attacker, he’s plenty useful even at NP1.
Altera Santa Christmas rerun has started. It’s got Ereshkigal banner. Also simultaneously, event for FSN HF latest movie is also ongoing with Artoria banner.
I kinda wanted more Salter (NP3 would be nice) so I rolled the Artoria banner. The other SR in the banner, Heracles, is also useful so I figured it’s fine rolling that banner without waiting.
And then as per the image at the top of this post, I got the Artoria herself. Her raw damage is slightly lower compared to Salter (at the moment) but she’s got 30% NP charge which fits nicely with my complete lack of Kaleidoscope and MLB Imaginary Element. Leveling her up is very painful though so I’m thinking saving enough resources first until I can fully level her up at once. At worst she’ll probably be at least max ascended in next year anniversary with the new one-time special ascension function.
After getting getting her with 5 tickets, I felt like wasting some more tickets (total 10 to be precise) so I rolled Ereshkigal banner hoping for Taiga or Ana or event CE. Ereshkigal herself is also pretty useful with 50% NP charge so that would be a nice bonus.
First roll I got Nezha (now NP4) and the second roll I actually got Ereshkigal.
So, yeah, that was weird. Not that I’m complaining. Thankfully I’ve got almost enough materials to fully max her straight away. Just need about 10 mores stakes and a lot of QP. And exp cards as well because I currently have none after trying to max Lancelot last week.
With addition of those two SSRs, my summon rate is now almost in line with the advertised rate:
As I haven’t gotten my NP2 Valkyrie, my next roll will be next month’s banner… if it comes at all. I noticed there’s chance the WinFes banner may be skipped. Whoops. Oh well, there’s still next year’s anniversary banner. Actually looking at the lineup that one is better than the WinFes one.
With that, my next roll will be, hm, exactly that banner 😀
Or maybe Godjuna… if I feel like rolling. Maybe 10 rolls or something. Miyu would be nice too but NA is more about meta than eyecandy (except for Okita) and Miyu is not quite useful.
Christmas rerun finished. I did clear the store in the end.
The next event is apparently titled “Imaginary Scramble” and is supposed to happen after LB ch. 4 (India). And I haven’t finished reading that chapter. I probably really should before the event starts. Or something. Maybe I’ll catch up this weekend.
Interestingly the event gives bonus to a lot of summer servants because… sea. It’s almost like a second summer event. Or maybe that’s why this year’s summer is in the mountain. That’s a cool story.
The event itself will be most likely start next week. In the meantime they’re having some pre-event banner… event. The main servant here is You Kihi which is a rather interesting foreigner (and a very annoying one as enemy sometime back then). She’s also gotten buffed together with some other servants.
And the other servant in the banner is MHXX, Raikou summer, and Frankenstein summer. I did some random 22 rolls and gotten one MHXX. As I still had quite a lot of sq leftover I figured how hard can it be getting another MHXX or maybe Raikou if I’m lucky so I can NP2 at least either of them. Well it’s FGO with its crappy rate but at least I did get another MHXX so that’s nice. I’m not sure if I prefer her over Raikou in term of usefulness but she has NP charge skill and it’s always useful. Could be useful against high HP berserker… or saber. Her other skills seem okay and her NP being arts means it could be boosted nicely by Castoria.
Oh and I’ve gotten lots of Imaginary Magecraft CE. I didn’t get enough Imaginary Around though which kinda sucks.
12M downloads campaign has started. It includes the long-awaited Chaldea Teatime (because otherwise I have nothing for my caster CE).
Tickets are bought, fous are as well (though unused). Free SR is coming soon. I’ll probably pick Valkyrie for a nice NP2. Technically I should be getting either Herc or Zerklot. Or maybe even Astolfo. I’ll probably still get Valkyrie in the end.
Almost forgot but there’s also Cu Alter pickup… I wonder if I should roll or save for next year’s Jeanne summer and Okita summer and Merlin and even further Castoria. I also still kinda want Okita Alter and more Okita.
…considering the upcoming ones I may just skip this one. I can borrow one whenever needed anyway which is prett rare to begin with.
