Do you mean with your Saber or Jeanne? I think I remember Gilles de Rais also repeatedly attacking my Jeanne, though it might have been confirmation bias.

It was Jeanne! I'm 100% sure that he only attacked her until she finally died. She survived a while and it seemed too consistent to be a coincidence.

I blew 80 Quartz on summoning again and the only Servants I got were Jing Ke and Gilles de Rais (Saber). I'm glad I finally got a Saber, but… I wanted a cute girl…
At least I got a few copies of that Sakura Craft Essence that starts a character off with 60% NP.

Gilles does only attack Jeanne if she is present. I don't know about Lancelot, you might have just gotten "lucky".

You're right, she's in the game and is an important character in the Rome map. She isn't available on the gem roll until the Rome chapter is finished and that's after France.

My Siegfried is picking up nicely now that I've gotten him past 30 :toot:

Incidentially, Siegfried is the only Servant that gets all three of his skills after his first ascension, since all Siegfrieds in the game automatically start with two skills instead of one (the second one gives a big attack/def buff vs dragons).

Yep! As do all other servants with the S growth thing mentioned in Kyte's posts. I'm relieved that my EMIYA and Siegfried are both good and usable now (though more EMIYA, since Jeanne does a better job of having tank-ish properties than Siegfried, though I think Siegfried also has one of the highest HPs in the game). It kind of bums me out that Siegfried doesn't become good until well after you've probably finished France (and thus lost the only opportunity to take advantage of his abilities). Hopefully future content also includes enough dragons to justify them.

It seems like an S growth curve is probably better in the long run. It's easier to level up through the first third of the growth curve, and by the time you finish the end of the second third you'll already have most of your stats, so having the growth slow down again isn't as big of a problem; for example, if you had a max of 8000 HP/ATK (added to your initial stats of course) and got 2000 during the first third, 4000 during the second, and 2000 during the last, you'd still be at 6000 out of 8000 by the time it slowed down, so it wouldn't actually have as big of a negative impact on your gameplay.

Your bargaining posture is highly dubious.

Just out of curiosity, how is Fat Julius Caesar? I love his design and think it rules that he's the gooniest servant to ever exist. Also, how are St. George and King David? I was super bummed when they got cut from Apocrypha.

Sooo, the guaranteed 4*+ with a 10pull event is going to be a permanent feature, which it should have been from the beginning, after maintenance on the 31st. And it will also net you a guaranteed 3*+ servant card.

Also, AP recovery time cut to 5 minutes per, and Gilgamesh will be in the gacha.

King of Heroes, Gilgamesh, shall now grace mongrels with his presence between the following times:

Ah, you apparently fight Gilgamesh in Jing Ke's third ascension quest (that is, the third one in the chain for the quest). Wish I had known before taking a high level Attila as a support.

And he has 130k HP and charges his NP up in only three turns =(

edit: Yeah, I think that was my first game over.

poo poo, even on my second try he one-shot my level 50 Tamamo Cat support. His regular attacks do so much damage.

edit2: Yess, barely won on my second try with no one but Jeanne with 1442HP left.

How does the Throne of Heroes interact with concepts of the Afterlife? Suppose Beowolf is a Heroic Spirit but ends up in Valhala when he dies but also the Throne of Heroes. Is he in both? Or they the same?

From what I understand, if someone meets the qualifications to be a Heroic Spirit, their soul just goes directly to the Throne. Do not pass go, do not collect 200 bucks.

Nasu works, at least the ones I've read, generally don't talk about the afterlife munch.

You get to say no, though. It's counter guardians that get stuck with the lovely fine print.

And Nasu afterlife is pretty clear, actually. If you don't get your soul stored somewhere then you're sent to the mystical woodchipper to be torn apart and the basic core (aka ze Origin) recycled into a new thing. No afterlife here.

A good number of the Servant Interludes are being summarized and/or translated and you can find them on the Fate/GO subreddit. It's fun seeing what kind of bonding and characterization you get with the various Servants even though some of them can be mundane and boring.

Pulled a Kaleidoscope from my rolls. Level 60 Vlad + Kaleidoscope.
:getin:

I think I've assembled a pretty decent crew. Vlad can generate stars, EMIYA eats them up, and I have Waver to buff up EMIYA for additional crit damage. I could put the crit damage CE on EMIYA as well if I want to buff it even further.

Edit:
gently caress. The servers didn't save my progress correctly. I lost my Super Success on EMIYA, which got him to 40 with as few exp cards as possible. DelightWorks :argh:

2nd edit:
Well, it looks like my progress was saved correctly so hurray, I still got the exp on EMIYA. It looks like it was just server issues after all.

I log on and there are 33 things in my mailbox o_O

Jesus Christ, all these character upgrade/XP cards and stones.

Doing a multi-roll since I had 80 stones saved up for this and have already gotten a Waver from it. (edit: And a Caster Gilles) Now I wish I hadn't been giving all my caster XP cards to Mestophiles (who was my best caster before)

And a Gilgamesh on the second multiroll! Awesome! Happy I decided to wait on using those XP cards this event gave me so I can get him leveled some.

vvv This post makes me feel guilty.

edit: Gilgamesh seems to have fast early stat growth; at just level 18 he has ~5000 HP and ATK.

Three Summon Cards and two 40 quartz draws later and I've gotten a whole three 3-star Servants. Yay.:( Because I needed lots more 4/5-star craft essences to add to the pile of unused ones I already have instead. Hell, one of them wasn't even new. I wasn't using you before, Mephistopheles, and I'm still not going to use you now. The other two were Medea and Cu(Prototype).
