What's the easiest way to grind through the moon 30ap missions? Would a bath CE be better than the regular 3+ dango CE?

Since farming the 30AP to me meant that I no longer needed dangos, I dropped all event CEs except for a couple on my back row where I figured I might as well. The support I grabbed was anyone with a Bath CE, but I didn't actually use them in battle; I hit "line up" and moved them into my back row.

So instead I go in with Emiya w/ Imaginary Element, George w/ Defense CE, and Lancelot w/ Kaleidoscope. Spend the demon fight building everyone's NP while George draws fire, and then unload both Emiya and Lancelot's NPs back-to-back against the servant trio. Usually kills all three in one go.

Yes, Bath is better, but if you have space to include both the effects stack so do that.

This week's master missions are up.

You have to kill each type of servant except for Assassins 5 times.

Every servant except for Lancer can be found in the Moon Goddess event, though you can only find Casters and Archers in the 40 AP free quest.

I think I'm going to take a break from the Event to go hunt some lancers.
Why not just wait until Saturday/Sunday when the event is over? That's what I was planning on doing.

I don't want to grind for the other two CEs, and I have enough Dango that I am only grinding for hearts. Which I have 8 of, and no servant currently needs.

*Insert Sailor Jupiter joke here*

About 700 Dangos.

I'm getting kinda tired with grinding, and I can't seem to be bothered to get the other two event CEs.

Should I just dump some Dangos into Pieces and Monuments and call it a day?

Up to you. All I'm missing is the Fou cards but I'm not in a real hurry to get them.

The event is boring but if you need as many hearts as I do you bear with it. I need close to 10, though even just one more for Emiya would be pretty swell.

They'll decide to close the NA version right before we get new animations.

And then taunt us about it.

You should only get the other two event CEs if you got 2 from random drops. Otherwise, don't bother.

She needs 4 hearts, 4 scales, and doesn't even have her third skill yet.

she's a 4*, at max level she has 9k attack which is obviously more than the 2 and 3*s have at max level (and the third highest max attack among 4* assassins even in the jp version)

Assassins have a 0.9 attack modifier on top of having mainly Quick cards. Their damage is pretty disappointing even against Riders.

Carmilla can put in work thanks to her NP, but Stheno is just bad outside of locking down dudes.

NRVNQSR

Cardset has a big impact on effective damage as well. QQQAB means she's never going to approach the damage output of even a QAABB servant, regardless of her attack stat.

Of course long-term that's fine, it's not what she's about, but at this early stage most people are going to find bruisers more useful.

Nate RFB

Clapping Larry

Using Carmilla as a support for when I do dragon fang grinding has made me kind of wish I had her. On top of having a good NP her NP gain itself seems crazy good, she's one of the few supports I can safely grab without the need of a Kaleidoscope (assuming NP is my intended use for them).

Is it really worth it? I did manage to get 2 CE drops while farming for hearts but I'm not sure how good the CE is with limit break.

Nate RFB

Clapping Larry

There's reason to believe based on earlier reports that limit breaking the CE doesn't even boost dango drop rates so limit breaking it is probably a bad idea. Especially this late into the event, if you are close to having enough for the other CEs you're better off buying out the remaining pieces/monuments or event fou cards and then focusing on the 30AP for hearts.

Like I said, I'm not even using her, I just lucked into her mats.

You have no idea how sad I was when doing JPFGO when rolling on the Summer Banner, really wanting Medjed Nitocris. Seeing the Assassin Card pop up, get excited, and then see it was Stheno.

Speaking of that, are there any lucky JP players with a Support Merlin available in this thread, started a JP account just as this event was starting, and want to use Mash and Merlin to try and Cheese through the fights so I can upgrade Rider Ishtar's NP.

I have both, so I guess it's time to start burning xp on them.

I'd like a solution that can remove the stun buff from her, when she uses her Noble Phantasm, too.
