They put out more information about the event! They are going to be increasing Nero's drop rate after all, along with Caesar, Romulus, and Altera's.

Oh hell yes! Might finally be able to make team Decadence. Does Caligula come from the quartz gacha, or is he gonna be friendship rolls only?

Caligula is 2*, and only in the friendship gacha. And apparently Nero will be made available even if you haven't cleared Rome and unlocked her normally.

Nice, I'm only about halfway through France so it's great to see I'll have a slim chance at Nero.

I actually set my birthday to this and now I'm curious what's gonna happen.

Thank god for the ability to reselect commands. I'm so god drat good at picking the worst possible combinations then realizing it as I lock in the last one.

"Fixed bug where enemy single target Noble Phantasms always targeted lead character" this one is gonna gently caress me. I've been doing the 5ap event for master exp, and Kojiro always attacking the lead was the only thing keeping my team alive.

:woop: just finished France and got Saber Alter up to a good level.

How often do they do events anyway? I came in like a day or two before the Nero event, and I was wondering if it would be smarter to wait for AP reduction events or events like this for getting exp.

10ap Nero mission -> trade silver coins for 4* exp. Literally can't do better than this for EXP.

I got all the exp from this event. I was mostly wondering for if it would be worth the AP to do the 40AP exp daily dungeons. Or if I should just do some interludes and pick up the occasional quartz from the side quests.

I've purged off inactive players from my friend list, so I will be posting this since it's probably a good time to add newer people. Here is my friend code: 658,112,721 - Level 70 Vlad w/Moony Jewel CE (+2 Dango drop)

I'll be adding people when I can and I currently have 8 free slots. I'll also be switching to the Moonlight Festival CE soon. I'm hoping to add people that will put the new CEs on their leaders so it makes the event easier to farm.

^^^ I've used two so far and gotten an Azoth dagger and Black Keys!

The 5* CE with Orion on it also increases droprates of that item, right?

edit: Another question - can the CE drop during quests like with the Nero one, or can you only buy it or get it from the gacha?

Both of the CEs with Orion on them increase moonballs. The one that gives 500hp per turn is gacha only and gives 100% more moonballs. The other one is 15% more crit damage with +3 moonballs, but it can drop.

At least that's what the big spreadsheet says. The 100% bonus one might be a stupid rare drop.

Is it more efficient to do the 5AP one with the CE than it is the 30AP or something?

I'm mostly just blindly following advice from 4chan. This is the informative post from 4chan that explains it.

quote:

Artemis Event Guide
Has pretty much everything including Dango drop numbers.
I didn't add any complicated math to it yet because most people won't read it anyway but bottom line is

If you have, with support, +8-9 dango, 5 AP is equal to 40 AP in dangos alone, but inferior in EXP and drops

If you have +10-18 dango, 5 AP is superior in dangos alone to 40 AP

If you have more than one double dango CE, 40 AP is vastly superior to all other maps in dangos

Without any CEs, get someone with double dango as support and do 40 AP. If you can't handle 40 AP, do 30 AP.

5 AP is rare dango galore, like 60% dangos are rare
10 AP is poo poo
20 AP is pretty bad too
30 AP is above average
40 AP is 100% white dangos, 0% rare dangos

I'll take suggestions and stuff tomorrow, just going to die now

Quote this post, copy it for the new threads, whatever, just slap it in the face of anyone who asks yet again what map is best for dango etc.

Gotta upgrade those 4*/5* Craft Essences with something.

edit: Do the event Craft Essences give their bonus even if backup servants use them, or do they need to be equipped on your starting party? I got the 5* one from a gacha ticket and I'm wondering if I should stick the 3* one on one of my backup guys.

They stack no matter where they are in your party.

So apparently they're gonna implement a 2 to 1 gold dango trade when the event ends, making any run that isnt the 5 AP inefficient. http://typemoon.com/news/2015/s60qh1

Speaking of 1*/2* XP cards, I kind of wish that they would stop mailing me a 1* XP card every single day. I just end up having to waste time using them (or just burning them) to keep my servant bank from filling up.

It's loving maddening that they even do the stupid loving opening animations for them too. Like wow thanks, 1* assassin exp, I'm so grateful for the 1/1000th of a Hassan level.

Jesus Black Grail on Saber Alter is hilarious. It's a shame it would take a team built around this to make it work with poo poo close to my level.

Yeah, after playing with it more the only niche this would have is in 1 stage boss fights where you know you're gonna burn command spells for that rez and full NP. But even then that's stretching it. Maybe if it gave some extra NP to start with, or gave NP as you take its chip damage, it could be useful.

Is the bath Artemis CE going to be taken out of the gacha after this event is over? I'd really like to keep trying for one. That CE on Jeanne is so ridiculous. Especially since she already takes half damage from everything but berserkers.

Yep, all of the dango CE's are event only.

Ytlaya posted:

The bath one I think is the gacha one, not the dango one (there are two 5* CEs with Orion on them I think). It gives the 500HP regen, while the other (that is purchased with dango) I think gives +15% to crit damage and star generation. But I think it might only be accessible in the gacha during the event. Which is a shame, since it seems really good. I have one, but it would be nice to have the possible chance of upgrading it in the future.

Sorry I meant all the ones that give a bonus to dango drops are staying until the event ends. But yeah both the 5* ones would be really nice to get to max outside of the event. I just got enough gold dango to make sure I can get everything but the CEs, but I don't think I have it in me to keep farming up to get the rest of the CE's out of the exchange.

3 4* CE and 1 5* CE out of 5 tickets (last 4 CEs shown), which is not bad considering the stories I hear about people getting multiple black keys. Maybe I'll get Formalcraft for Waver one day if I still don't get any more dupes. At least getting one of many types will help me with team building and improving team compositions in the future.

I wish I had your luck when it comes to CEs. Right now my only decent CEs are Bazette and that quick damage Sakura one. I would kill for one of the NP gauge cards at this point.

I got a level 50 Saber Alter with it on. Not exactly a high level, but I don't plan on changing CEs either. 153,099,487 if you're interested. I also just got her 2nd ascension so come next Saber exp day I'm gonna hopefully get her to the next cap.

It really makes it hard to want to spend any money on this game when the only way to get the servants I want would be to burn through quartzes until I eventually get one and that would cost too much loving money given how God damned impossible it is to pull one 5-star after 3 months of playing this game.

I might as well just save every Quartz for Caster Gil, but I want other servants too.

Yeah, after watching someone spend around 50 minutes and $1500 trying to get Kintoki, it's really hard to give them any money. I really hope more of these gacha games add in shops where you can just buy specific heroes for $15-$20.

I don't really see the point to trying to roll for rare servants when you can just call them up as support anyways.

Then again I am probably the only person in the world who actually likes True Assassin and that poor bastard is only 2 stars so I got him super fast.

Whenever he smiles I'm reminded of narration from HF and I can't stop laughing.

My original goal was to get both Gilles and max ascend them, but the game apparently has a actual desire sensor and just kept throwing 4 stars at me. And if I do ever get one of them I'm gonna max him and watch my friendlist empty when I put him up as my main with the black grail.
