It can only save one character, though. My main strategy is to just try and get Jeanne's NP up in time for the enemy's NP, since it shields the whole party, but sometimes that just isn't feasible (if I draw bad cards for instance).

I've done a few Rome levels and they're laughably easy so far. A bunch of guys with 1.5k-3k HP, yet they still give more XP than the France levels. Once I finish Rome I'll go ahead and do a couple multi-rolls, since I have 85 stones saved up.

By the way, how do you set a servant as your "greeter" in your room?

When you view the Servant in your card list, there is a heart button on the left. Press that to set who you see in your menus.

That's nice, I've burned through 120(in 40 gem batches) and only gotten a single 4+ star servant, and it wasn't even a useful one. It was Waver, which really sucks since you already get a good Caster automatically. Hell, in total, from quartz and friend point draws combined, I've only drawn 11 Servants.

I think they only ended up showing up in a couple back to back rounds at the very end of the chapter. I just finished Rome and the last couple rounds are pretty brutal. The last boss has over 100k HP and does an NP that hits the whole party for 9000, in addition to every regular attack hitting for 1000-2000 (that's every single one, so if you're unlucky enough to have the same character attacked a few times in the same turn it can instantly take them from full health to dead). I ended up with no one left but Jeanne at about 2,000 HP.

I guess I'll finally spend some of the ~110 shards I've saved up over course of all the story content + daily login bonuses. Was wanting to wait until I had unlocked Nero and whoever is unlocked from the first chapter.

edit: Is anyone else getting an error when they try and do friend point rolls?

Yeesh, and I just got finished getting my rear end handed to me by Waver/Caster and Kid Iskander.

I've been using Caster Hans Christian Andersen (Fate/Extra CCC) in my party since his NP heals and buffs. He's been pretty great to use so far, hope I can ascend him soon (I need some goddamn EXP cards game :argh: )

It seems like you pretty much have no choice but to get XP cards from the dailies, as quests never give more than 1 star ones.

I just realized, isn't the end of chapter 2 currently the hardest content in the game? I guess it would kind of make sense; I relied almost entirely upon my Jeanne and my level 45 Attila support (with the latter being completely necessary for her damage). Even if you had a full party of level 25-30s, it probably wouldn't be enough if you didn't have at least one really heavy hitting higher level character and/or character with more than 5,000 or so HP.

edit: So I did one multi-roll with my stones and got four 4-star craft essences and not a single servant. Oh well, not a huge deal; what I already have is pretty decent.
edit2: Did my second multi-roll and this time got mostly servants; 2 Mephistopheles, 3 Lu Bus, and the 5-star Vlad. I hear he's not that great*, but I'm not exactly going to complain since that makes two 5-stars out of the three multirolls I've done in the game so far.

Gonna be a tough call choosing which Berserker to level up now. I already have my Spartacus at 22, I have 3 Lu Bu's (and thus a level 3 NP with him) who is also supposed to be good, and I have the 5 star that I guess is theoretically the best at max level. I guess I might as well focus on the 5 star since I no longer need to cultivate a party for the story missions.

*Actually, after looking at his skills/stats he seems pretty strong at max level. Apparently the biggest problem is that he only has 2 Buster cards, so he can't do a Buster Brave Chain. At least the extra Arts will help build up his NP (and I really needed a good single target NP, so that's nice).

Ah, I just noticed that I can actually do one of those servant "interlude" quests, since my Spartacus has been ascended once. They appear to have some extra dialogue + a few battles. The difficulty seems a bit higher than the other missions in the corresponding area.

Vlad's only "problem" is that he can't Buster Brave Chain, but he has Battle Continuation A, so if he dies, he just gets back up. Unlike Battle Continuation B, this doesn't just keep him around for an extra 3 turns, he straight-up has an extra life. Also he can drain an enemy's skill/NP gauge.
