Yea, you don't just start off completely imitating an attack like that, especially in Shirou's state. Starting off by working to make the individual swords faster and faster makes more sense than instantly being able to copy the entirety of Archer's version of "Gate of Babylon".

What? Is part of their reasoning seriously, "she didn't react the way I wanted her to"?

Also, Shinji was portrayed as rapey/really drat creepy in the previous season. His connection to the girl who went missing, then showed up with no memory of that time, and his interactions with Sakura and Rin. The only comedic part of Shinji's character is watching get his face beaten in because he's so scummy.

Probably the hardest thing in the game in terms of "chances of actually getting game overs" haven't been the Wyverns, but instead of been the enemy servant bosses (which often occur after a couple rounds of wyverns, so you're already a bit worn down). When the enemy servants hit you with their NPs, they seem to do their full regular damage. This is devestating, since servant damage generally seemed tuned towards attacking enemies with way more HP than you have. As a result, AoE enemy servant NPs can literally just one shot your entire party. The only character of mine that could survive Elizabeth Bathory's (the Lancer one) NP was Jeanne, who takes 1/2 damage from all classes (except Berserker), and even she only had a few hundred HP left.

Ask me about eating a 19k NP from Carmilla.

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.

*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).

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.

Lower rarity cards are also cheaper to upgrade.

Saber Lily has comparatively lower stats for how rare she is (literally impossible to get now, outside of account/code buying), and you can not upgrade her NP unless DelightWorks puts out another Saber Lily event.

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.

My roll got me Atanyanta.

The new "Parting the Red Sea" card is really bad. It grants a single dodge for the entire fight. It's only use is avoiding the very first hit that Servant takes, and a measly 5% debuff resistace.

jellycat posted:

If you have a screenshot, I can try reading it.

It boosts that Servant's "critical weight" by 600-800%. I thought it meant critical hit damage or something, but critical weight seems to be their chance of receiving the stars you generate. So it turns that Servant into a star vacuum.

It's on the same menu as your party/master screens.

Pick the servant you want to equip, then pick the craft essence. To confirm that craft essence, click the blue button that comes up in the part of the menu that has the essence's effect. To remove a craft essence without replacing it with another, click the grey button that is on the currently equipped essence.



Enhancing a craft essence is just like enhancing a servant, but simpler, as it doesn't require anything but cards and QP. If you enhance an essence with a copy of itself, its level cap and unique effect will increase. Leveling up a craft essence increases the amount of health and attack it gives.

The 1-2* ones are generally only worth using as fodder. Everything 3* and up is worth at least holding onto, except for Parting The Red Sea (the first one you got in your screenshot), but they will be replaced if you find a higher star essence of the same type and have enough team cost to use it. All of the ones that give NP gauge or boost NP strength/generation are worth keeping, Bazett is very good if you have servants/essences that can increase your star generation, Sakura and Shirou are good damage boosters.

Here is a list of them all.

So it seems he choices tomorrow are:

Heracles (one of the best beserkers)
Bathory (the best lancer, makes other party members stronger)
Emiya (since I already have him I can overcharge my NP)

It's probably better to get a new Servant, than just boost EMIYA's NP.

If you haven't gotten any other good lancers, Bathory is a great choice if you have room in your team, even just for her buff and debuff.

It's kind of a toss-up between Heracles and Tamamo. Heracles has all the damage, but Tamamo is entirely multi-hit attacks (which helps with star generation) and health recovery from her NP.

Yeah, basically. I'm grinding the 30AP berserker quest to try to get some monuments for Tamamo, which has been fruitless so far, but i've noticed that she also needs Homonculus Babies, which according to every source i've looked at are only obtainable from Lancer Cu's non-repeatable interlude. Does anyone know if there is an actual place to farm those things?

Homunculus babies are unobtainable right now aside from the event gift and interludes.

Dragon fangs drop from wyverns, dragon teeth skeletons (the stronger, darker skeletons that don't quite look human), the 10ap version of the Saber/Lancer/Archer material daily, and from all versions of the Caster/Assassin/Rider/Berserker material daily.

The snake jewels (golden eye trophies) only drop from lamias, which only show up in the 40ap version of the master exp daily, and the 20/40ap versions of the Caster/Assassin/Rider/Berserker material daily. The 40ap version of the master exp daily is more reliable for hunting lamias, because 3 are guaranteed to spawn, with a maximum of 6 possible lamias.
