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.

http://kairosity.tumblr.com/post/125748860299/fategrand-order-craft-essence-compendium
Full list. (Weakness resist should read debuff resist, tho)
The icons are shared between craft essence and skills, too, so you can get an idea of what those do as well.

Ruler takes half damage from all classes and does normal damage to all classes (double to zerkers). (I forgot how it interacts with itself). Also a base 10% damage bonus.
She also has naturally high stats.

Buy quartz, spend quartz refilling AP bar (best done once you're high level enough to have an 80 AP bar), grind the gently caress out of the QP dailies, next day grind the gently caress out of the XP dailies.

Data I've pulled. There's a ton. Skill up reqs, ascension reqs, skills names and effects, weakness table, servant XP requirements and how servants' stats grow (it's not always linear).
Might be adding more depending on what I discover or figure out.
Once I have the time I'll give the precise numbers for all skills and NPs but that's in a 'later' stage.

Is Gilgamesh (and some other servants like Gintoki/Medea) even in the game at this point? I noticed you list his skills.

Also, that information about stat growth curves is really useful and seems to explain why, initially, some servants seem so drastically better than others; they were generally servants with reverse S growth curves. Also, every single servant that made me think "jesus, why is he/she so lovely" was an S curve (like EMIYA, though from what I understand his end-game stats aren't that good either).

A handful of servants are in the game but not obtainable. This is probably so they can be used as enemies, but it's likely they will become obtainable at some point. (Except Jeanne Alter, but then again she has a profile for some unknown reason)

You get to say no, though. It's counter guardians that get stuck with the lovely fine print.

And Nasu afterlife is pretty clear, actually. If you don't get your soul stored somewhere then you're sent to the mystical woodchipper to be torn apart and the basic core (aka ze Origin) recycled into a new thing. No afterlife here.

Ytlaya posted:

Question - does the attack "style" affect anything at all? Like, different servants/classes will hit enemies a different number of times for certain attack types. For example, Gil's Buster attack hits the enemy 4 or 5 times I think. Are certain attack types better for different things (like generating stars vs doing damage vs generating NP gauge)?
NP and crit stars are calculated per hit and %s are stored per servant. The former tends to balance itself out but the latter doesn't, meaning Gil (and to a lesser extent Hassan) is the best star maker in the game.

The one kind of underwhelming thing about Gilgamesh seems to be his Noble Phantasm. While it gets a bonus against servants, even against them it seems to do a LOT less than Arturia's Excalibur. This would be okay if it had some debuff/buff attached to it like many/most other damage NPs, but it doesn't. It's about comparable to most other AoE damage NPs in damage, so it's not so much that it's *bad* - just that Excalibur is ridiculously powerful.

Also, what another poster said about his attack pattern generating a bunch of stars is very true. He routinely generates 4-5 stars with individual non-Quick attacks.

Put Tokiomi on Gil and the crits will make up for everything.

Why is it that some Noble Phantasms are listed twice in a row? Do you get the rank up as you ascend the servant?

Yep, gold servants get a 2nd interlude that lets them upgrade their NP's rank. That's why when you first get them their NPs have lower rank than they're supposed to.

Man, Gilgamesh totally destroys Gilles in the latest servant event update. The combination of Gilles being a Saber (and thus weak against Archers) + the 150% damage from Enuma Elish against servants resulted in it doing over 40,000 damage (which is really high for an AoE NP).

Just so you know the 150% is multiplied on top of the regular damage, so Enuma Elish hits for 450%. :v:

For those people who've watched unexpectedly :black101: webms of combat in Prisma Ilya, checked it out and then immediately ran away for perfectly understandable reasons, the anime, starting with today's ep (7), has switched over to primarily action, which Silver Link is actually surprisingly good at.

UBW super disappointed me with its action scenes. The choreography was lame, there was too much talk and worst of all they kept cutting away at the worst times possible times :argh:.
Even Shirou's two iconic fights were lame, with little to no sense of progression in the fight. Hell, at one point in Shirou vs Archer in UBW they show him running all motivated, cut away and when they cut back he's further away than when he started.

When I was watching it all I felt was fatigue, not hype.
E: I should say that this was mostly on the 2nd half. The early fights (Herk, Lancer) were cool.

This was particularly glaring because right after watching UBW I started watching Danmachi and those fights had me so hyped I shotgunned through the entire season in like a single night.

(lol who said watch the loli ecchi scenes I meant just watch today without context it's not like it's important and fortunately they don't mix fanservice and action. anyways last I'll say about it)
