Would Hollow Ataraxia be grandfathered in on the LP subforum since F/sn got a LP? I know there's a no-porn-game rule but Type Moon stuff seems to have never been an issue for that.

You might be able to get a pass since all the actual porn scenes are optional. I'd still ask though.

Rin can support a Servant without the grail with just her magic circuits but it takes like 80% of her prana.

I'm gonna guess where they're coming from. Unlimited Blade Works creates objects from nothing, so it could be said that he uses the first Magic "denial of nothingness." The problem with equating that to Shirou knowing True Magic is that you could then say that Fake Assassin knows the Second Magic because he can use Tsubame Gaeshi, which makes equally as little sense.

Pretty much the only reason a connection between Shirou's reality marble and the 1st Magic comes up is because that would be one of the reasons Clocktower would want to seal him, hoping to learn more about True Magic through a study of his reality marble.

Nope. Both Shirou's Tracing and UBW create the swords out of his magical energy, it's just that inside UBW, the cost to do so is greatly reduced since the world isn't trying to corrode everything he makes, since the space inside is literally another world with it's own rules.

Post a pic of Caligula Berserker

Here's the servants I have so far, not counting the ones you get for free.

Chevalier D'Eon (Saber)

One of the few loving Servants that Type-MOON has an actual good reason to make gender swapped.



Caligula (Berserker)

He hits poo poo. A lot.



Charles-Henri Sanson (Assassin)
(I ground this guy up and fed him to Caligula because he sucks :laugh:)

This guy did just chip damage no matter what so gently caress him. He looks cool at least.



Lu Bu (Berserker)

I definitely choose to pursue Lu Bu, he's probably replacing Caligula in my main lineup.

Or mabye I'll just field two Berserkers at once :getin:

http://grand-fate.tumblr.com/ has some guides for this game. The one that's particularly important, in my opinion, is the one for exchanging user IDs-- you can use that to share any cool Servants you get with other people.

If anyone wants to check out my Berserker and stuff, you can add me at 197830299.

It shares whoever your party leader is. :toot:

If you're having trouble levelling up your dudes, the daily quests at the top of the daily quest thing reward lots of XP items (the top one is saber, archer, and lancers, exclusively). Note that the ones that cost AP are more difficult but give better XP items.

For those who are wondering what the gently caress your crafting essences do:



If it has the Green Quick symbol, it increases Quick damage by the stated %.
If it has the Blue Arts symbol, it increases Arts damage by the stated %.
If it has the Red Buster symbol, it increases Buster damage by the stated %.
If it has an Exclamation mark, it increases Critical damage by the stated %.
If it has a Crit Star, it increases the rate at which you collect Crit Stars in battle by the stated %.
If it has a Shield, it increases defense by the stated %.
If it has a sword with Rings behind it, it increases NP build rate by the stated %.
If it has a beam of light, it increases NP Damage by the stated %.
If it has a sword with an explosion-like glow behind it, it increases NP Starting % by the stated %.

Levelling up a crafting essence just seems to affect the attack and HP bonus (and the cost) so I'm unsure if there's any real benefit to doing so at this time.

Thuryl posted:

Fate/Extra's Saber is one too, kinda; she has one dialogue event where she mentions she thinks of herself as being both male and female. (Her explanation for why she feels that way is a little essentialist about gender roles, but hey, she's from ancient Rome, cut her some slack.)

IIRC, the conversation is more about how she doesn't care if someone she loves is male or female.

I don't really like how many servants seem to be objectively better than others in this (though I understand how it's kind of necessary for the whole gambling business model). Like, there are some servants I've gotten that look really cool but that I'm hesitant to use because they're 1 or 2 stars.

Two star Servants can still be useful once levelled.

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.

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.

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:

If you get multiple Servants, keep in mind that you can mash them together to upgrade their skills. Make sure you do this with the useless level 1 guys and not with your level 17 guy!

(:negative:)

You can increase the level cap, actually. Once you get a Servant to their max level, go to the upgrade screen and click the Ascension button. This unlocks another one of their skills and changes their appearance.

For example I ascended my Arash and now he has cool leather armor on some parts of his body.


e: Here's some info on some of the Servants and what their abilities are. In case it's not obvious, class skills are your char's passive skills.

On the other hand, it does paralyze her for those two turns because she's asleep :pwn:

Also, here is a gallery with the cards for (most) of the Servants and Craft Essences currently in the game files. It has some that are not gettable.

If you are wondering how to unlock these extra outfits, your Servant's outfit gets fancier when you ascend them. Better start grinding exp cards!

Also, a lot of these are by different artists, which is why some are :hellyeah: and some are :derp:

How difficult is the 40AP XP quest (ie what level servants roughly are required and what class type are the enemies)? I really don't want to waste 40AP and then die.

The XP quests are pretty piss easy. The enemies, at least in the class XP ones, are of the appropriate types for the XP cards you'd be getting, and they all attack only once per round.

The 40 AP one seems to have level 30-40 enemies at the most and while they can hit kinda hard, since it's only once per round from each enemy, you can easily win a DPS race if you're using a Berserker for support or something. I was completing it fairly regularly with Servants in the level 15 range or so even before I got Jeanne and Bathory.

Jeanne Alter's Noble Phantasm reflects and amplifies damage so the harder you hit her the turn it's used, the harder you get hit.
