Nothing better than swinging around a little girl like a flail.

As a tip for new players, the game tells you that you can tap onto an enemy to target that one instead. If you're having trouble with this, you can tap the ui element that has the enemy's hp and np charge to select a target instead. It will also highlight what you have targeted on the ui as well.

So after a few rerolls I got what might be my first good set even if it doesn't have a 5* servant. It has Emiya, Robin Hood, Martha, Kaleidoscope and Heavens Feel. Im keeping the code, dont know if I should keep using it or hope for a better one still

the top 3 best things in the game, even in the jp version, are waver, merlin, and kaleidoscopes.

should I level up the shielder? It's not going to be a waste or anything like that, right?

So throwing this out here since I was rerolling for the hell of it. Here's an account with both Herc and Emiya but it's completely drained of it's starting quartz. Has a couple good CEs on it as well.

4HnurrSjnU == 1234

Berserker: Heracles, Archer: Emiya

Imaginary Element == 60% np gauge start
Gemcraft Antumbra == Increase crit strength by 25%
Divine Banquest == Increase np gauge gain by 25%

Reminder that Herc is the best one to pull from the tutorial gacha and Emiya is in practically all future events. So he'd get a bonus towards the event.

mash is average now but she gets upgrades as the story progresses and is insanely good by the chapters that are actually hard. and since she ascends automatically she's the exact opposite of a waste, you'll never blowing any mats on her or anything.

I got Marie Antoinette and Lily as my only 4 stars so I'll probably reroll, Marie is cute at least. Might not bother til I get home tho, since I somehow forgot my charger.

So I rerolled until I got a Waver and ended up w/ Waver and Tamacat w/ a bunch of half decent CEs but no other servants worth mentioning. When they do the pick a 4* thing, should I get Herc or grab someone else because I already have a berserker?

You could get Emiya instead as well or Carmilla depending on if you want an Archer or Assassin.

Huh: Just rolled Herc for the first time. And he wasn't the guaranteed 4*

So Waver is obtainable at launch as well? Is there a reason he was not in that initial list? Not that it probably matters because even I know he's a keeper, I'm just trying to collect all the gacha Servants with Keep/Reroll/Shrug notes in a spreadsheet.

Waver is a 5*. But yes he is obtainable at launch. The tutorial gacha is only a guaranteed 4* servant from a list of 10 4* servants. You can find this list and Endorph's recommendations in the OP.

If you're trying to get Waver, it would have to be after all of the tutorial stuff.

Despite saying I wouldn't, I did do a couple of rerolls and landed on what seems to be a bigger winner. After free roll and a quartz dump, I ended up with Emiya and Liz from my 4* roll, a couple of Cus, Robin Hood, ~Artoria~, and a Kaleidoscope.

So I'm glad my worst impulses were rewarded I'll just grab Berserker whenever we get that 4* selector.

What am I missing about Craft Essences? I can't figure out how to equip them to Servants. Can you not do it until the game holds your hand through a tutorial about how to do it?

-Ch Chulain/Lancer
-Martha/Rider
-Hassan/Assassin
-Medea/Caster

Anyone? Do I just roll Chu, Martha, Kiyohime as my main party? Is there a point to have a party beyond the three?

There are multiple advantage triangles in the game, so there is always a point to having more than just 3 Servants, no matter how good.

Saber beats Lancer beats Archer beats Saber. Rider beats Caster beats Assassin beats Rider. Berserker is strong against all previously listed classes, but in turn is also weak to all of them. Shielder (Mash's class) both takes and deals reduced damage from literally everything in the the game.

Also, as the difficulty gets harder, it's not uncommon to lose frontline Servants, so you really want trained up back row ones as well.

Is there any reason for me to not do my 10 roll right now? I heard there might be a 5* rate up at some point. I already have Emiya, which was the main thing I wanted.

I'm pretty sure the game is actively mocking me at this point by giving me double 4*s during the tutorial rolls.

Should I be using/investing in the free 4* Saber, or Deon?

My newbie party is Lily Saber, Robin Hood, Cu Chulainn. I have no clue about putting together coherent parties beyond that I'm just trying to diversify my damage types.

Also, can I pretty much just go wild on the friend point summon?

The daily quests give enough if you farm them. Also, the 30AP XP Daily is the besy way to farm Mana Prism for the Shop (by burning silver XP cards).

Shhh... don't wake up the sleeping lion

So I'm guessing it's more QP efficient to use up multiple EXP cards at once? Since it seems like the QP cost is only based on the Servant's current level.
