To the man who loves art for its own sake, it is frequently in its least important and lowliest manifestations that the keenest pleasure is to be derived.

He says something about wanting to be Lancer next time near the end of the Fuyuki storyline. The next plotline seems to involve Jeanne Alter as the main enemy with a set of servants (including caster Gilles) under her.

Yeah, the Noble Phantasms seem like the biggest difference between the characters. Jeanne has this thing that blocks all damage for the next turn, gives a 1000 HP regen for 2 turns, increases the party's defense for a couple turns, and stuns her for the next turn. It's really good at helping you recover from a bad situation. Archer's UBW plays an EMIYA remix and does AoE damage + reduces the enemy's attack (though it seems like the AoE NPs are generally worse than the single target ones, since most of the harder fights will probably involve a single boss enemy).

Does anyone know how Heracles' NP works? It doesn't seem like you can activate it once it fills up. If I had to guess, maybe he revives if he dies while his NP gauge is at 100%? That seems like it would make sense given the way his ability is supposed to work.

He uses 9 lives to deal a shitton of damage.

Some NPs are kamikazes, like Arash Archer and Bloodaxe Berserker, so they'll be K.O.ed like the doofuses they are.

Caster Cu's NP is pretty amazing.

You can play it. Just download Bluestacks or another Android emulator onto your computer, then download qooapp and then use that to get the F/GO application.

On the other hand, Arash does cost only 3. He's also the only Archer I've ever rolled, and the first character I've ascended :negative:

I got 9 equips and Fat Saber(who I already had) out of the 10 pulls I got with the free stones, but I least I got a 4-star Sakura equip that I put on Purple Rider. Current front two servants are just Purple Rider and Lu Bu, who hits like a loving truck.

I got my account reset, with all my progress deleted, lost best girl, and didn't even get the free stones. Rank E luck really kicking in here.

So how was your post maintenance log in?

Ytlaya
Nov 13, 2005



Stats seem to vary wildly in this and not be entirely related to how many stars a servant is or even what level they are. Like, my 4 star level 9 EMIYA has less HP and less attack than my 3 star level 7 Assassin Jing Ke (1808/2143 vs 2124/2403). Normally I would think the difference would be made up for in skills, but it seems like skills (at least at this point in the game) don't make a huge difference.

I just had my first hard fight with Carmilla in Orlean. Her NP would always one shot all my characters, including Jeanne who has super high HP. I only won because I used a level 21 Cu Chulainn friend that had super high attack and dealt really good damage (plus Caster Cu Chulainn which was strong against the Assassin Carmilla).

Which dailies give the xp items? I just did the first 20AP daily and it just gave a bunch of crystals, not xp.

Caster Lancer, from what I remember, was partially lamenting over the fact that he was summoned as a Caster and not as Lancer. He also wants to bring an end to this grail war in Fuyuki so he partners up with the MC under a temporary contract. He informs you that Saber Alter is basically the one to beat in this entire contest and has been guarding the grail for a while now. When your party arrives at Alter, Lancer is surprised to hear her speak
Skip to the post fight Alter
Alter tells you this war is far from over and leaves you with the words "Grand Order", which shocks Olga-Marie. Then Caster Lancer disappears as well as the holy grail war is over.

This is from memory, so I probably got some stuff wrong that won't be corrected unless I trudge through the mountain of text that is a Type-Moon game. There's also a training montage segment when he helps Marsh(?) get her NP.
e:I guess I can add that the "point" of the game is to fix historical errors caused by the main bad guys who want to get rid of humanity. So you start in 2004 Fuyuki, then start going to other "turning points" in human history, e.g. 100 Years War in France with Joan Dark.
