Weekly FGO vol. 62

JP

Christmas event has ended. As can be seen above I got around 70 boxes. I still need to open them of course.

New year event is coming soon and there’s no info on it yet. Hopefully the GSSR will be useful or interesting.

NA

Meanwhile here they’ve announced the full lineup. Well, it’s the same as JP two years ago so there’s that.

I got 61 boxes here for Christmas event. Not quite enough but definitely helped.

Beni Enma event coming up tomorrow. I don’t quite remember how it went. Oh and as it requires finishing Lostbelt 3 which I finally did.

Creative BT-W3

Continuing from this wireless earphone thingy, I needed something to connect to it from PC. I initially bought a cheap TP-Link Bluetooth adapter but it ended up sounding crap. Not sure why but it produces so much noise.

So I got the thing above and it sounds quite a bit better. The codec choice doesn’t seem to differ much between SBC and aptX. Although I think the latency is every so slightly better with aptX? It’s still to slow for watching video (fixable by adjusting delay) or playing games (lost cause) though.

The quality difference is almost enough to justify the price difference of over 5 times the cost of that cheap BT adapter. It’s also able to connect to my earphones way more smoothly with no fiddling on Windows side (nothing to fiddle anyway).

The final setup looks rather silly though with my case not having USB-C port and thus requires the USB-C to USB-A adapter resulting in USB flash drive-sized… thing.

JP

Grinding for boxes. All the boxes. Only 15 boxes at the moment though. Mainly because most of the time was spent on NA instead of here.

I did finish the challenge quest though. Not with low rarity because I think there are plenty of people did it already anyway. The one up there is with friend Super Orion, with Amadeus and Waver equipped with 2030.

The other one on another account is double Castoria with Chloe as attacker. With Black Grail. I don’t think I put much thought on the other CEs.

NA

Meanwhile CQ on NA is relatively easy as well. Not as easy but I did clear it in single run. Samba Santa is a bit too strong for this.

As for the boxes, I’m at 50th box. I wanted 100 but I guess it’s not happening considering only 1 day left.

Wrong account tho

JP

Rather unexpected, Christmas event has started already.

When they announced new interludes last Monday I expected the Christmas event to be at least next Monday instead. But nope, it starts last Wednesday instead. Welp.

As I wrote before, it’s annoying because now I need to farm on both JP and NA. Well, not really “need” but it would be nice to farm as much as possible. I sure can use a lot of dusts and seeds. The fluids are nice bonus as well; last year’s Nightingale Santa wanted 45 to level up her skill to 9 and I don’t quite have enough.

Currently farming slowly because the currently open nodes have rather crap drop rate. It does look like I need to at least open some boxes though just to unlock the story.

I don’t think I’ll roll for this one. The one above is on my sub account.

Thankfully the event CE this time provides 50% when limit broken so that would help team comps a lot.

NA

Also farming here. Also kind of waiting for the best node to open. I did get the extra event CE but I still need more. At least one more so I can limit break one and still have +3 on my own. The two other slots are occupied by NP charge CEs.

At least from the look of it my current farming team of Arash, Zerklot, Skadi, and Waver can go pretty far. Having full 3/3/3 node being the highest drop node sure helps. Gotta enjoy it while it lasts.

I ended up I rolling the banner for about 10 times and got nothing. I did get three R event CEs and that’s it. No Bradamante or anything.

JP

Lol still nothing at all. Maybe Christmas event will finally start in two weeks or something. My guess on the earliest it may start is next Friday.

NA

Apparently they fucked up drop rate during Thanksgiving banner and I got some SQ refunds and extra CE. That’s nice, I guess. There’s also fun bug of level 0 of the CEs they given away.

Samba Santa is coming next Monday. Nice timing because it’ll be before the JP one. I doubt there won’t be any overlap at all but at least I can have some dedicated days for NA. I especially need some dragon fangs. I mean, a lot of them. I don’t know if I can three turns the node but I hope Ereshkigal can help.

Weekly FGO vol. 58

JP

Nothing week. Next update will be a new chapter Lostbelt 5.5 which apparently isn’t actually Lostbelt but singularity. And not an event either so there’s no time limit. I think.

Christmas event will also be coming soon-ish. Maybe in one or two weeks. Not sure if I want to spare time for loot box this time.

NA

Lostbelt chapter 3 is out. I’m going through it slowly. Or maybe not at the moment as I’m farming for Aurora steel instead.

Nothing exciting here either but at least there’s Advent Calendar which if follows last year should provide at least 30 sq.

Christmas event hasn’t been announced but if following JP pattern, it should start next week. I sure hope it’s not the same time as JP.

I may or may not roll for Bradamante. Even if I do it will be 10 rolls at most. Probably.
