My intention was to reread Fate with the new patch in the intervening months between UBW's cours and I don't think I can do it. I'm putting in maybe an hour a week and it's painful because that route's beginning is nothing but exposition and Shirou being afraid of Saber's cooties. I'm certain it was fine when I had only a passing knowledge of the premise (so like 8 years ago when the first Fate patch came out?) but now it's just nothing but work. I like FSN a whole lot but I think I just have to acknowledge that it doesn't have the replayability of say Steins;Gate which I was more than happy to replay once it came out officially in English.
Wait, the Steins;Gate VN got licenced?

Kara no Kyokai was the first thing I saw of this franchise and it's still my favorite, just wish it was part of the main continuity. Disjointed, interesting characters, crazy setting and noirish - I'm a sucker for this stuff. Then I played Fate, and it was ok although Shiro gets repetitive after a while. Watched Tsukihime :psypop: , then played it. Ryougi Shiki best Shiki. So now I'm thinking of watching the UBW adaptation - is it any good? Fate/Zero was nice enough, but knowing how everything ends made it a bit boring.

When did I turn around on DW? I used to get really bored with events quickly and get tired of their loving Quartz costs for poo poo, but the game is so good now and this new event actually is the most the game has ever done to make you engage in its mechanics and servants strengths and it is fun even if it can get frustrating and now I'm excited for another Halloween event.

DW are learning
Let's hope they keep this up, instead of giving us more 'raid' events. It just doesn't work in this type of game. More hardmode stuff is welcome, gives the veteran players a challenge, although tbh I did not see myself being able to beat the pre-nerf Nero fight. gently caress that

I already did that. I'm on the finale and my issue is I can't get Nero alone and I have no command seals so I basically have 1 Kintoki NP since my support slot has to go to a Medea or Tristan to debuff Ozymandias and then another berserker to pick off leftovers like Amakusa or Medea, but it doesn't matter because one of those two will have NP to make up for the difference and by the point I could get Nero alone she'd just kill Emiya at some point and get NP in two turns and waste whatever team I had.

This is pretty much hopeless for me. I don't have the command seals or the extra servants to do this. I should've had a levelled up Medea ready for any scenario since her NP is stupid good, but i don't and this teaches me I need to level up my loving servants between events.

If you're using Kintoki, you shouldn't need Rule Breaker for Ozy; his NP ignores defense. Gives you another slot to play around with at least.
I did it with Tama/Vlad/Stheno front row, with Mahu/Kintoki and Raikou on standby. Having 3 ways to lower NP gauge was nice, and let me stall out Lanceturia Alter's NP enough to kill JTR, Amakusa and Ozy

Also god drat, the 2015 redux event was easy as poo poo. I laughed when the dialogue shilled Vlad as a tough fight because he went down like a chump.

Crazy how much the game has changed.

We didn't really have the mats to get multiple 10/10/10 servants.
I'm loving how easy it is to farm the drops this time around, since everyone still has the maxed CEs from last year

Could always hold out hope that they do a Cygames move and add an English language option like Granblue, but given China has its' own FGO servers (which are very far behind) it's incredibly unlikely.

I rolled her, grailed her up to level 100, got all her skills to 10 and maxed her Fou boosts

And now i'm depressed she's just NP1.

Now this is some dedication!

TamaLancer is fine though, it's not too hard to play around her drawbacks (using the charm when the target NP gauge is full, using the crit buffs when you've got a brave chain), and having an attack buff with an extra effect is still pretty good. Plus the animation for her NP is great

Despite the poo poo people give her over the drawbacks it's really easy to play around (charm when they've already got a full bar, don't use 3rd skill unless you've got a brave chain without her NP).

Start using Waver and marvel at how amazing it is to hit max NP with just his attack and defense buffs.

This is how I farm QP dailies.
Zerkalot and Raikou with K-scopes, and a friend Waver to top up the last 20% for each. Lance NP turn 1, crit down wave 2 and Raikou NP wave 3, without getting screwed on command cards it's usually an easy 3-turn clear

Honestly makes it interesting that the whole lot of them are in the second slot when third is reserved for support servants.

Reserved for support servants by default, you can change it in the party screen (for some teams I move support to one of the back rows so I can have 3 of my own servants in front row.

Yeah, but Waver was originally super poo poo before his buff. Though Gil is still considered good I think and he was early.

People in this game really don't appreciate party-wide damage buffs. Almost everyone thinks Charisma is a wasted skill slot, look at how far Drake has fallen in popularity... hell, people thought Waver was complete garbage until his double attack buff also gave 10% NP gauge.

HiveCommander

You weren't wrong about that last fight. He seems to be immune (or at least highly resistant) to charm as well; TamaLancer can't even land charm on him.
On the plus side, I did have him ticking away for about 8k curse damage a turn at one point :v:

I don't know how to beat Goetia. :(

I could grab friend Shouten to skill seal but I don't have anyone for party wide invincibility/dodge.

I can sacrifice my front line, and then grab Waver or Merlin; but Goetia was hitting my poo poo in for 7k each turn I'm not sure how to stall long enough to actually deal damage and none of my Servants are above bond level 7.

Another viable option is Waver with Iri+any 50% starting NP CE so you can give the party Guts turn 1 and keep a front row. The rest of the NPs don't hit too hard, at least.

Nyaa posted:

I don't think berserker art team is very viable unless you pair them with art healer?

Vlad+Tamamo+Waver is great and a lot of fun. It's also quite easy to drop his NP 2 turns in a row under Fox Wedding and Waver buffs, which hits pretty hard (and generates a ton of stars).
If you prefer offense over defense, swapping Waver out for another Arts attacker (Nero Bride is probably the best choice, but Surfer Mordred is my personal go-to since I haven't got the former) to kill stuff a lot quicker, and you'll have someone that's not a caster to be using those stars that Vlad generates with his NP.

Not quite as lucky as these double rolls you've all been getting, but Caster gacha gave me Sanzou (woulda preferred Waver but it's better than a Tamamo dupe I guess), and managed to roll Musashi with the leftover quartz.
From initial testing, she's pretty drat good and the double hitcount makes for some BS NP gain for a turn which makes for a very neat skill. Really dig the triple buster deck

Whoops, forgot that one. Rule number 2 is what I meant (about treating Mordred like a woman). She gets right-pissed at Kairi for even mentioning her gender, after all.
It can't happen soon enough


Pretty sure friend codes are fine in this thread, can't go wrong with having more good servants to borrow.

AfroSquirrel posted:

Why did you max Kuro's projection first?


I use her more for the NP burst than a sustained crit hitter (That's JAlter's job, after all). I personally don't like things like crit damage being tied to a defensive skill; it's good, but not quite good enough to blow an evade cooldown just because I have a few Kuro cards and a lot of stars for the turn. Not-prana burst being on a defensive skill isn't so bad though, since you'll be using it the turn they NP and that will get the enemy's attention.

I switch between Martha and Jeanne on my wildcard, Musashi and Okita for sabers, and Cleopatra and Jack on assassins sometimes.

At some point I should finally max my crew but meh.

Dumplings CE on Musashi? I'm guessing this is left over from swapping her out with Okita, but it's not much use when she only has 1 quick card
