Fallen Rib

I have no idea what I'm doing, so thanks for everyone posting newbie tips and stuff.

So, there will be another chance to roll free stuff during this opening, and after that is when I decide if I want to reroll or not?

Working off of the available 1-4* ratings in the OP, and the list Endorph posted earlier, is there a rundown on these fellows since AFAIK they are also going to show up in these tutorial rerolls?

Medusa (Rider)
Boudica (Rider) **
Ushiwakamaru (Rider)
Alexander (Rider)
Medea (Caster)
Gilles de Rais (Caster) *
Mephistopheles (Caster)
Cu Chulainn (Caster) **
Jing Ke (Assassin)
Lu Bu (Berserker)
Darius III (Berserker)
Kiyohime (Berserker) **

Artoria [Alter] (Saber) *
Nero (Saber) *
Atalanta (Archer)
Lancelot (Berserker)

I assume it's not worth worrying about the **, since according to the Endorph post those are automatically given to you.

Medusa: decent aoe rider, has a stun but otherwise nothing special. 6.5/10
Boudica: She's very survivable and her NP is a very strong defense boost but she's kind of invalidated by Shielder existing and being free. 5.5/10
Ushiwakamaru: She has an insanely strong single target NP for a 3*, and tengu tactics is a decent buff, but she's very stock outside of that. 7.5/10
Alexander: Decent AOE rider, has a quick boost but otherwise nothing special 6.5/10
Medea: Has a single target NP and the gimmick of using it over and over and over again. The NP's barely stronger than a normal attack but she's still the best freebie caster for killing assassin bosses. 8/10
Gilles (Caster): sucks. his skills are all mostly worthless, his NP does no damage. 2/10
Cu (Caster): He has Cu's protection from arrows but he otherwise does no damage. 4/10
Jing Ke: Strictly inferior to Kojirou and Cursed Arm Hassan. 4/10
Lu Bu: He's good. He has a single target NP and is a berserker so he does a good amount of damage. Just think of him as ghetto Hercules. 7/10
Darius: Meh. He's a berserker with an AOE NP so hes' good for waveclear but I mostly prefer... 6/10
Kiyohime: She's great at waveclear - has a targeted defense debuff, a buster buff, a strong aoe NP, and surprisingly high NP gain so she can use it more often than other aoe Berserkers. Main issue is that her normal attacks aren't as strong as other berserkers. 8/10

Artoria Alter: Probably the second best servant in the game at launch. She does extremely high damage and has a decent skillset, minus instinct. 9/10
Nero: She's okay. Thrice-setting sun and two-self heals makes her very survivable but her self-buff having a failure chance sucks. Her NP does decent damage though. She's almost like a 4* saber version of Cu but sadly her NP doesn't have an-insta kill chance and she doesn't have a dodge. 7/10
Atalanta: Mediocre. She has an aoe quick buff, which is strong, but she lacks anything else that makes her standout. 5.5/10
Lancelot (Berserker): Very good, but he needs a team that can generate crit stars, since all his skills are built around using them and he barely generates them himself outside of his NP. 8/10

You can check my recent posts for a step-by-step, but basically you get a "free" ten roll, then one more tutorial battle, then it dumps a bunch of quartz on you to do more rolls with. After that is the best time to reroll, especially since you can save a transfer code at that point in case you change your mind.

Now really is the best time to reroll though, all the 5*s on offer are solid choices. Even the least hard hitting one is average on the list of 5* servants.

Endorph has nice breakdowns, but I'd like to add that NOT all these servants are available in the tutorial rolls, or even post-tutorial rolls. The ones with one * all require certain content to be cleared before becoming available in the gacha.

The mini 2 seems to be borderline; when I've tried it it works 90% of the time but sometimes crashes on entering battles or playing NP animations. I suspect it's very memory-hungry?

Between both my rolls, I got Elizabeth Bathory, Robin Hood, Jing Ke, Lu Bu, Kiyohime, Alexander, Medusa, and Giles de Rais.

So, only one 4 star between them. Should I reroll?

Rerolling without a specific goal is really miserable though. Whatever you get you always know there could be something just a bit better. Sure, I got 3 SSRs in one 10-roll this time, but they're not the best SSRs.

I've got the goal of getting either a 5* servant or two of the three folowing: Liz, EMIYA or Tamacat. I've only seen the latter two once each after ~11 rerolls.

A lot of Servants don't seem to have their voices come across naturally. But then again I'm speaking from the view someone who has literally only seen their summoning introduction dialogue so far.

Yeah, this is the bigger problem. Though to be fair the battle dialogue is translated decently/gets across their voices okay, minus typos.

I'm gonna make the judgment call to say both are fine, but chill out with any particularly relevant spoilers to English players. Like I don't expect people to not talk about Agartha in a few days and the Agartha stream just because it's mostly EN.

The funny thing with this being I've rolled him twice. In fact, he's currently the ONLY 5* Servant I've rolled. One account with him got given away last night, but the other can be yours(along with a bunch of other good stuff) if you find a Jeanne before I do. Of course if I do find a Jeanne that account will probably go up here anyways.
