If Rin knew half of what was going on she's have busted Sakura out years ago.

If Rin knew half of what she thinks she knows, she'd have been unstoppable.

She'd even be able to program a VCR unaided.

Ytlaya posted:

During that one scene where Sakura is telling her about all the terrible stuff she went through Rin was just sort of like "eh sorry but I just don't care, my life wasn't perfect either" so I'm not so sure about that.

Wasn't that during the fight in the cavern? Pretty sure she was trying to goad Sakura into attacking out of anger.

The best thing about HF True is that in the middle of the touching reunion Rin is already planning out how the four of them could win a tournament and get money so that she can balance her checkbook.

Causality can be wonky with the grail, so maybe the mark simply appeared before Shirou summoned Saber even though the summoning caused the mark, much like Rin's necklace served as the catalyst to summon Archer Emiya before it was linked to Shirou when she healed him with it.

It certainly doesn't hurt that Rin has a habit of breaking reality on a regular basis while trying to pull of her own versions of Zelrecth's stuff.

I finished Fate/Stay Night a few days ago. Every time I think about the Heaven's Feel normal ending enough, I start tearing up again because I'm a crybaby. I'm glad the true ending is mostly pretty happy.

I dipped my toe into Hollow Ataraxia, but I think I'm going to watch Fate/Zero first, because I'd rather end the main Fate stuff on a more pleasant note. I also have Carnival Phantasm prepared for this reason.

Basically I am going to tear through most of the Fate franchise in one month, I guess.

I had that happen with This Illusion ~ Piano Version for a while.

Godspeed you crazy fool. Hopefully you don't come out of this adventure talking like Nasu writes. Other possible symptoms of overexposure to Fate may be a sudden increased interest in cooking, swords, and combinations of the two.

Part of me really wants it to be true that his subjects would party hard occasionally singing rock-praises to their God-King.

The openings were cool, but honestly the originals were better. Not animation wise of course, but just as far as fitting into the story went.

Also not going to lie, I miss the two OPs being called hollow and ataraxia respectively. That was cute.

I've got to agree with this.

The first Vita OP has Archer + cat at least, though!

Who cares about the openings, you should read F/HA just because Bazett and Avenger are both fantastic.

Waver doesn't like Rin because she doesn't know about anime and video games, therefore he has decided that she is the worst Japanese in the world.

it does because obv the original timeline where Shirou became Archer he was forever alone

The love life of Rin and Shiro is that of various bouts of destroyed property between awkward attempts at common romance. It's the greatest teen romance you could ask for.

PSA: There is a new option in Game Options (sixth option from the top in the My Room menu) that lets you see the art/sprite your friends chose for the support servant.

For the most part, this means you can finally see the Max Ascension art on everyone and use Waver in a suit.

More importantly, you can use Jacks with their unascended art.

I imagine this room full of Smart People spends weeks crafting the perfect "you got a really rare thing" images/animations for popular gacha games like this, P&D, that DBZ game, etc.

There's probably massive research projects regarding video game chance myths and how to monetize them. Little did Bob know he would use his college degree to conduct the comprehensive review of every myth to ensuring that the pokeball stayed closed.

Rate-ups are a lie. I keep trying to get Avenger Gorgon, but no luck yet. Still, got NP2 Mordred and TamaCat.

Mordred was MVP for the 1mil HP fight, since she could hat-cleanse into NP-Buster-Buster pretty much at will.

ExtrAssassin gacha looks good for me, now that I've officially cleared the story as F2P. Either Jack gets NP3 or I get my first Extra, so win/win~

White text is the quartz you brought, red text is the bonus quartz. Bonus quartz doesn't count as paid quartz. So if you are rolling for the new year gacha, you want to buy the 42+23 one at minimum.

Ah, so the final Jack portrait gives her clothes again? That would be nice if so (though unfortunately her sprite will still have no pants).

Some clothes return, but it's mostly the pose. I've just kept her on her first sprite (selectable from the servant screen. Kuro and Quetz are also using earlier card art because I don't like their final arts).

Ytlaya posted:

Is it just me or is the "8% increased damage to Buster, Arts, and Quick" 5* CE kind of lovely when compared with the ones that give 25% to a single type? Like, even if you put the 25% one on a servant with just 2 of a card type, that's basically equivalent to 0.4*25 or a 10% overall damage increase over the long term. The one time the 8% one would be better is if you for some reason wanted to equip, say, Limited/Over on a servant with just one Buster card.

The only potential exception I can think of is a situation where a servant has 3 of a given card type and a damage NP with a different card type (like, for example, Ilya), but even then I'm pretty sure you'd generally be better off with the 25% Arts CE.

Speaking of Ilya, how good is she? Seems like she is kind of a niche character from what I've read, though I like her animations from the times I've used her as a support.

Generally focusing on one card type is better, but remember that there's a difference between 'damage of X cards' and 'effectiveness of X cards'. Doesn't matter much for Busters, but Quick and Artes gain NP and Star gen from improved effectiveness.

When it comes to grinding lower level gems, is it better to do one of the lower-AP dailies instead of the 40AP one?

Speaking of ascension dailies, Assassin is tomorrow - I can finally get Jack fully ascended!

Kintoki summoning as well, which is tempting but I've decided to put all effort towards Scathach instead (I don't really have anyone else who would go well in a Buster team).

I do 20 for blues and 30 for reds, I average a bit over 1.5 a run for each generally + more assorted ascension mats.

give me more spooky ghost servants dropping void refuse so I can level jack's heal

And Shirou is the chronic helper around his school and neighborhood before the Fifth Holy Grail War kicks off. If the HGW hadn't happened,. I'm fairly certain he wouldn't have become EMIYA-Archer. He'd just be the cool neighborhood dude who helps everyone and hosts the tastiest BBQs.

Finally have a chance to do this event, and it's funny how easy it is compared to last year. Kaleido-Mordred + Kaleido-Quetzalcoatl + Support Jeanne for Dragon Witch clears the first 40AP in one turn each. Which is good, because I need more talons to get Mord's Mana Burst and SoP to 10.
