So the maths shows that the 5ap is the best? I got 7 dangos, (1 moon and the ce from the shop + support). Is it really that much worse than the 40ap mission that gives around 60 dangoes when you use the 100% dango ce?

Also I toss a ticket at the gacha for shits and immediately got a black key. Feels like the game is telling me not to roll.

If you have a Medea, bring her along and try to keep her alive. She may have the triangle disadvantage but Rule Breaker will remove those annoying buffs.

Are there any ways to get cheaper quartz than buying it straight from the game?

Compendium

That sure is some posting.


No, you just get quartz from free quests on the game and from log in bonuses and sometimes apology gifts and from getting quartz shards from the weekly mission. There is no cheaper way, you either spend time or money or both for quartz.

Those +7 drops mean you'll be getting 21 bonus dango each time you run the 5AP, so yes, it's much more efficient than spending eight times as much AP for only three times as many dangos. Even when you factor in that rare dangos are worth less the 5AP still comes out significantly ahead.

edit: 40AP was pretty straightforward with the classic Cu/Hans/FriendJeanne team. Cu/Hans/FriendWaver would have been better, but you've got to take whatever support has Bathing Moon Goddess.

I guess the story with cirnopedia is that NA users basically DDoSed it by accident when Moon Goddess dropped, as the hosting site saw a ton of traffic on a few specific files related to it and shut it down. At least according to FGO's awful subreddit. That's pretty funny. Could be permanent too if what happened to the PSO2 cirnopedia, apparently?

That'd be a shame. Cirnopedia's information wasn't always the best, but it was much better laid out and more understandable than wikia's. And let's not even talk about Gamepress.

I blew all the summon tickets I had before EP4 of the story just to hopefully get Orion.

I got a moon bath
But then I got more loving Azure Keys and another Saber Gilles.

What's the point of a rate-up if its gonna give me the same garbage the story summon gives me? Might as well not even have it as a separate listing.

Red is grey and yellow white,
But we decide which is right,
And which is an illusion.


The rate up is nowhere near generous enough within that 1% chance of getting a 5*.

During the Gilgamesh rate-up I rerolled until I got a Waver, Vlad and Altria on the first pull, and Gilgamesh was actually the 5* I saw the least while churning out reroll accounts. Then using all of the Start Dash + Gil campaign + story completion + dolphin package quartz, I got another Vlad and a Jeanne during that rate-up. Now with the Orion campaign, I got another Waver and then finally an Orion.

Sooo 1 rate-up in 7 successful 5* pulls.

RNG is RNG. I got both Ruler Martha and Archer Artoria within like 5 or 6 tickets when they were on rate-up so i can confirm that rate-ups are good civilization

It's generally agreed that the 5* rateup within the 1% chance is about 70%, based on collected data, so it's actually pretty generous.

I was wondering, since in JP there are more servants and most of them are 4 star or better is there a higher chance to roll one or it doesn't work that way

Nate RFB
Jan 17, 2005



Clapping Larry

The chance to pull a 4* or 5* is always the same, it's just that as the pool increases the chances of the pull being a specific servant that you want (esepcially outside of a rateup) will go down because the pool size is larger.

Pureauthor
Jul 8, 2010

ASK ME ABOUT KISSING A GHOST

I'm pretty sure it's stated in the game itself (somewhere in the Summon Info section) that the chance to pull a 5* Servant is 1% and the chance to pull a 4* Servant is 3%. That doesn't change no matter how many Servants or if there's a Rateup.

This is certainly a good event for it since everyone's grinding 5AP quests - most of them at 100FP a toss. If you have a good support with Moonlight Fest and an active friends list you can easily rake in thousands a day.

well maybe if people use my lancelot more, I might get more friend points.

literally only ascended him for friend points/farming even though I know he might be ignored for vlad if people really want a support berserker.

I think most people will pick Lancelot over Vlad most of the time? For farming a buster-based berzerker with an AoE NP beats an arts-based berzerker with a single-target NP.

Starting NP CE usually makes the biggest difference, honestly.
