Weekly FGO vol. 100

JP

I still need to finish two extra quests. And then maybe redo the challenge quest.

Otherwise I’ve been just farming the bronze treasure chest node with natural AP as I don’t have any silver and gold apples remaining.

Oh and as per screenshot above, I managed to max out one Kaleidoscope…

NA

Oniland has started. I’m slowly grinding for the points preparing for the raid. Hopefully I’ll have enough points when it starts otherwise it’ll get rather annoying especially farming for the mats and stuff.

Weekly FGO vol. 99

Still summer! (although it’s almost Autumn here)

Haven’t finished the story due to busy with other stuff. I’ve unlocked the most relevant farming node for me though so I’ll be mostly doing that for now.

As for the rolls, nothing interesting showed up from daily paid rolls. Also I’m not doing Kama banner for normal rolls, just Okita.

There are still over a week left. It should be fine. At least for the main quest and store. I’m not sure if I have enough apples to clear the Treasure Points rewards. Maybe just barely.

NA

Gilfes is over. 108 boxes total for me. Still not enough exp cards to level up everyone. And I’m still missing some materials to ascend Osakabe (Summer).

As for the challenge quests…

First up is Eric. Thanks to this video linked from Gamepress wiki, I cleared it pretty quickly.

It’s just letting someone die every turn so Eric lost his buffs.

Next is Gorgon Sisters. Still sponsored by Gamepress wiki link, I followed this video. Didn’t quite match exactly but cleared anyway no problem by Godjuna.

More from linked video by same wiki, Mephisto quest was cleared in 33 turns. I don’t remember much about this one as I did it while doing something else.

As for Achilles quest, I don’t think I stole anyone’s idea. Or maybe I kinda did from this. Looking again, I should’ve tried the first turn bar break but then that’d require restarting until finding the correct cards…

But anyway the team above did it albeit taking a lot longer at 11 turns.

I vaguely remember repeating this Roman quest quite a lot last time in JP. But as there’s no restriction here, I copied this mostly as is.

I didn’t pay enough attention to the gimmick so it took a bit longer but I finished it in 14 turns.

With this, Gilfes is done and I forgot to repeat the Nero quest. Whoops.

Up next is Saber Wars 2… is what I thought but it’s Oniland rerun. Apparently it’s got raid quest with eggs and gunpowders and stakes. That’s nice.

Oh wait I forgot about the FGO Stage Banner. I did three rolls and got Bedivere (now NP3). That was nice for a change. NP5 would be the best but I’m saving my tickets and SQ for next year. If I still play the game by then.

Summer! Okita Alter Summer for some reason! Yay?

I didn’t have any SQ though so, yeah, that was expensive. Thankfully it only took over 240 rolls to get that NP3 above.

Other extras include NP4 Anastasia, NP4 Charlotte Corday, one extra Valkyrie (now NP3) and Circe (also NP3).

I have no more SQ or ticket so that’s it for me. Kind of. There are about 20 or so more daily SQ roll until it ends so that’ll be it.

Similarly for upcoming Kama banner, as I have no more SQ, it’ll be also just the daily SQ.

As for the event itself, it’ll be a while until full farming can start as the higher level nodes are still locked. Nothing particularly difficult which is rather expected for a summer event.

Oh, I also only have few apples anyway.

NA

Jaguar! I made a vaguely possibly working team and it did. There isn’t much in term of strategy especially as the only meaningful gimmick is rotating buff.

And then Moolah. Pay debt as frequent as possible and then NP away. The annoying part is when there’s matching face card, not enough critical star, or both. Or when the debt is about using NP damage boost when it’s on a support servant which means there’s no way to pay it back.

That said, Ozymandias is both tanky and high damage so everything worked out fine-ish. Oh and that comp above is a lie. Replace that Enkidu with a level 100 Cu which didn’t end up doing anything much.

MHXA! One of the more difficult quests. The strategy is kill as many snacks/enemies as possible as fast as possible. Except the one which causes debuff on death. Also save an NP or two for the Agar-agar. The side effect is the HP down to 1 and can’t even be buffed (I tried).

I use that as the point on which I need to break MHXA first bar as soon as possible. Afterwards it’s all the Cu’s turn to survive however many turns needed to get MHXA HP down to 1.

For Gilgamesh (Caster) finale, I went with this. I didn’t expect the NP def buff to be so thick it’s useless. So, yeah, I ended up just letting Ozy deal all the damages using face cards. That Nero Bride get full charge every time I killed anyone is also annoying. It doesn’t help I didn’t prepare for anything like that. So, yeah.

It didn’t even start well as killing Bunyan causes a full team debuff. Which then of course followed by Nero NP.

I wonder how I did it before. I also wonder if it’s better to just get rid of Nero first.

But hey, at least Qin saved the day getting rid the last few servants remaining (I think it was Nero and Gilgamesh).

With 2020 line up over, then it’s 2021. “Finale”. And this one is very annoying. That FGO Fandom Wiki not mentioning 1 time per turn evade buff from Fionn after first bar break is very much not helping. I ended up using two command spells because I just want to be over with this one already.

I’ll look back again and clear this proper if I have spare time.

I don’t remember how I cleared this in JP. I think it’s with Cu Alter. Or maybe Godjuna.

And lastly the Brave Eli quest. Yeah, I haven’t done the previous ones and jumped straight to this thinking it wouldn’t be too bad.

Except it was amazingly bad. I should’ve at least used Alexander or someone to remove the pierce buff etc in wave 5.

But anyway after few hours of trying I barely cleared it. Forgetting that her NP ignores def also didn’t help. I should’ve always went with NPAA in the final wave.

…and that’s it for now. There are still a few more challenge quests to be cleared.

Oh, I also rolled on the Berserker class banner hoping for more Lancelot or Herc or Cu Alter. I got none of them after 44 rolls and got Penth and Ibaraki instead. Great innit. Next year Grail Front will be slightly annoying.

As for the boxes, I’m at 68th box. I’m currently farming shop currency though so it slowed down quite a lot. I’m almost done with it though so I’ll be back farming lottery tickets soon. Or maybe the challenge quests first.

Weekly FGO vol. 97

JP

Another nothing week. Summer is coming in few days. Except it’s more like Autumn in real life.

I’ve been just farming for QP. Not really bad considering I’m farming for NA at the moment.

As for the banners, the only useful thing I got so far is Magical Girl of Sapphire. Not too bad but I need another four for best effect and bonus damage.

NA

Gilfes! Farm time. About 35 boxes so far. I’m thinking saving at least 100 silver apples for upcoming Christmas event.

Jeanne Summer worked way better than expected and it looks like I’ll be relying on her again for the last part of the event.

Meanwhile on challenge quests, I’ve been doing slowly doing them. I’ve only completed three of them.

Nothing particularly special for Touta stage. I didn’t remember how I did it before but the key is to just not attack and not using evade or guts until really needed. Attack only when releasing NP after stacking 5 or more buffs and only use defensive skill when facing enemy NP.

Brain-dead strategy for Leonidas stage. Mash for defense, Merlin for more defense and HP regen, and lastly Artoria NP as needed. If anything, the NP should be after Leonidas uses his NP, hopefully with him casting skill 1 first so the target focus only lasts one turn.

And lastly Izo stage. I initially used Sanzo to clear this but it was so wrong with her NP being useless and I didn’t swap colors enough, ended up taking too long. This one is way faster with main focus on letting Waver deal as many high damage as he can and making sure every turn ends with Arts card. Also stun from his NP sure went through pretty easily.

That’s all I’ve done. There are still a lot more left. I’ll get around doing them eventually… I think. It would be easier had I saved the comps I used last year. Also the 2019 in JP.
