Is there any shorter way to ascend hercules other than waiting for the speific daily?
This is my current hell. Need just a few pieces to ascend Herc and George before I try the 40AP, but it looks like all of it will have to wait until either I get lucky in the story or it shows up in a daily.

You should get enough Berserker pieces for his first ascension by mid-Orleans, and if not you can grind the free mission in Thiers for them. Unless you mean his second Ascension, in which case he's level 50 already and you really shouldn't be having any trouble with the 40AP daily.

The reason Herc is generally considered great is how surviveable he is for a Berserker. He has an evade, a Guts skill, and his bond CE also gives him 3 more uses of Guts for free. So he can stay swinging after most Berserkers would be down for the count. His three turn attack boost is just icing on the cake.

You always need more Berserkers. It's impossible to have enough of them

I really like my team of Murdercat and Martha, but after using various other servants as supports I'm developing a bad case of the "I want that one too!!"s.

There are enough Berserkers in Orleans that you'll get all the pieces you need if you continue the story. And 2 level 40 characters way outlevel the content of Orleans.

It's worth noting that the thing making him REALLY ridiculous is the way guts works. If he's the last servant standing, and activates guts by hitting 0 hp, that'll end the enemy's turn since everyone on your team is technically dead. So when he's the last man standing, he can get like 5 free turns of buster brave chains. And with his great ATK stat, those hurt.

Not sure what free servant to pick. I got Waver, Hercules and Martha as my gold ones. Maybe another Hercules to upgrade his NP? I dunno if I care about Archer enough to pick him, but I guess Carmilla might be good to snag a decent Assassin. Is Tamamo Cat even worth getting instead of a second Hercules?

There's also a somewhat infamous video of a solo Heracles beating the Act 1 final boss in a straight-up damage race.

3s yes, 4s no. 4s give the same # of prisms as 3s despite putting out vastly more XP.

Tamacat is good for farming with her AoE zerker NP.

Between Waver and Martha you have a ton of survivability and Artes. Emiya would round out the Artes train, but Camilla would be a good fit too, feeding crit stars to the team while NPing bosses. D'eon would make the team even more tanky.

Apparently I had like way more than enough 3 star exp to burn. So basically, every month even if you're completely depleted will give at least 5 summons if you just do your EXP dailies.

I'd honestly say Carmilla. She does extra damage against female enemies with her NP (which most bosses are) and brings some useful utility to the table with her def down, NP drain, and star gen/crit down skill. Her attack's kind of poo, but that's true of most assassins.

An alternate option would be Elizabeth Bathory, simply because we won't get any other 4 or even 5 star Lancers for quite a while, and she also brings some pretty nice utility to the table (at least, once you shovel her through her enhancement quest). She has the same def down ability as Carmilla, but also has a team attack buff that, once she upgrades it, also double buffs your female party members. The Guts on her is a little less useful, but hey, surviveability is never flat out -bad- to have. Her NP, sadly, is pretty crappy.

Woah, scary. I tried starting up my game and got diverted to my email with a big string of numbers for an error code to send to the devs. Restarted my phone and the game works again, but I think I better generate my transfer code before another spook.

Never not have a transfer code. The version of the game we got has most of the nasty bugs fixed, but you never know when it will eat your loving account and you'll have to reinstall. I am incredibly paranoid about keeping mine updated and change it on a weekly basis.

That reminds me. Make sure you buy at least one quartz; that way if there's a horrible fuckup, you can use the purchase info to help recover your account if for some reason your bind code goes horribly wrong.

College Slice

Between a level 50 Attila , and a 38 Lu Bu I can do 30 AP dailies just fine, and now I have a level 38 Liz for bullying Archers as well, so that's going well. But in order to power level Attila I need Saber exp, and my Archer stable is currently Robin Hood and Arash, that's it. For horsemen I have a good Marie (31), Cursed Arm and Koujiro (34 and 30, respectively), but my Casters consist of just CasCu, Shakes and Motzart, so they haven't gotten any real attention.

I think I could take on the 40 AP Lancer stuff right now, but the Saber one is still probably going to be a bit difficult. Robin is good and all, but not quite carry on his own strong.
