Mordred is pretty great though.

So I give this all about equal odds of either going super well or, uh, gettin' us all killed. Messily.

So a couple of prayers from you guys wouldn't hurt, yeah?

Once events start rolling around they'll give you apples at a pretty nice clip.

Though Granblue now gives you so many AP refills that you can basically play it like a console game.

Real talk though, the Camelot actually "Jerusalem", kind of, but we'll get there chapter does some neat things with Arthurian lore. It puts some spins on certain characters that I don't see explored much, but they make sense, especially in context and it really helps Fate's take on the myth feel like it's own thing.

Never played the japan version but I did my first 40ap hands just as I gained enough points to actually run it and it was pretty rivitting poo poo. All my reserve units died and all that was left were my and my support unit Jeanne. Both at like 1500 health. Gained two easy base levels from it

There are valid complaints about Berserker Lancelot but minigun NP is cool so I forgive him.

On my JP account I have one party with Mordred, Gilgamesh, and Berserker Lancelot explicitly for Arturia bullying purposes. I wanna get Zero Caster to put on it too.

I have a team with Nitocris and Saber Shiki and can just Instakill NP all three waves away. It's hard to go back to struggling.

Managed to get one run of the 40 AP hands now, with two strong sabers and a Berserker. Took all my command seals on the last wave, but I got it. I don't think I'll do it again soon, sticking to 30AP for now.

I didn't think I'd say this, but thank God for Lu Bu and his being discount Heracles.

The "acquire" master missions - do those drop from specific dailies, or just randomly from anything?

Artoria's probably better to have since she has waveclear NP and two buster cards so she can actually work with herc p well as far as card synergy goes.

Getting skill gems comes from the green dailies that are based around the class triangles, yeah.

So am I selecting cards wrong then, because I rarely do NP even in 30 AP quests.

Captain Baal
Oct 22, 2010


If you start off an attack with arts you inherently gain more NP for your following cards, but if you use buster cards to follow it you are at best gonna get 1% NP gauge increase. So you normally wanna follow the first arts with ideally another one or a quick card since both give you an actual significant increase of NP gauge. If you've been working along those lines you should be able to get NP with Artoria who has generally pretty alright NP gain. Like 30AP hands are weak, but you should be able to get excalibur off of hitting the first two waves enough especially if Artoria is doing overkill damage.

I still feel pretty obligated to use Silver XP on leveling up, I've only just hit 20 on a few dudes and it seems way more important to get everyone up to an ascension level ASAP than worry about hoarding prisms. Bronze though have almost instantly become worthless, obviously.

I found that going generally Buster ->Quick->Arts for card order works very well.

This is fine too, the game just started and people have plenty of time to get prisms. Getting to a point where you feel comfortable with your team is honestly the most important part of the game.

It's kinda right on the edge. IIRC reddit or the wiki or somewhere did the math and arts first usually generates more NP than arts last but only if you can get a brave combo, and even then it depends on class?

They're supposed to refresh every month. Not sure about why they have it listed as lasting a year.

The very first batch lasted for a year, and we didn't get renewals until a while in. After that it was monthly. I assume it was 'cause it took some time for the playerbase to rev up their mana prism generation to "can buy the tickets and stuff every months" levels.

BQA is best for damage, ABQ is best for NP generation and star generation, assuming a single servant. Specific combinations depend on the people involved, personally I put the servant with better NP gen or two arts/quicks first and the other dude last, since I like having NP levels even so I can chain them.


Jenny Angel posted:

I wish they'd kept some of the nuances of that NP's name but they relied on using both the furigana and kanji names to make a two-part phrase. I think it was literature inspired, too? Either way it was a bitch and you lost information when translating because you had three pieces of information (furigana translation, kanji translation, spoken line) and only two places to put them in.

The full phrase was something like, "We only need to kill, because the dagger won't return". (Without context, it becomes "Just Kill" and "Dagger of No Return", iirc).
Referring, of course, to the fact Jing Ke's mission was a suicide mission.
