Someone on reddit put together a brief guide to get emulation working again and it's been a lifesaver for me. I literally finished grinding what I needed from Honnoji by a hair due to Nexus 7 load times.

...why does cucu caster complain about not being a lancer so they can beat saber if saber >> lancer?

It's also something of an injoke. Outside of FGO, classes do tend to have trends that can be exploited by other classes but it's not a game mechanic, and Lancer is more or less Cu's signature class given his legend. It's also a joke because his lancer form has terrible luck and he's basically the chew toy in a lot of side-material.

Buffs hella stack.

I've been ripping through the hardest difficult raid encounters in the current JPN event with Raiko and double Merlin (one from support) at max skills and it's hilarious to just pile on the buffs and regen. Short of a fluke round where the boss just whacks the same person three times along with a crit, the regen from multiple Merlin NPs just fully heals them.

I'd take that account, but I don't have anything to give you in return.

Is there a gameplay reason to hold out for a non-waifu/husbando character? It seems like with the way the support system works you could just friend someone with Waver/Jeanne if you really needed them for an event, no?

What shows up in your support list isn't always the most consistent. Nothing stops you from updating or loving around until the right person shows up though.

I don't have time to go reroll. I'm already really satisfied with what I have in JPN that the English release is basically just a bonus lap for me. I'll be happier if I pick up servants that I wanted but never got in JPN but it's not a deal breaker for me.

A bunch. Treat every servant as different no matter what connections they may have with one another. Proto Cu is from Fate/Prototype while Lancer Cu is the one we all know and love.

Once you can comfortably clear 30/40, you do 40 once and then grind 30 for silver exp to burn.

Because they exist outside the standard seven classes. They only recently added a slot for EXTRA servants in the Japanese version.

is there any reason to save friend points like a FOU FEST or something like that where we get better poo poo out of the FP Gacha? I get like 4k-6k a day right now so idk if I should hoard them

Events always throw out a 3-star CE that gives some sort of benefit in the event, like +1 event drops for the lowest tier of event currency, while the 4/5-star event CEs give the higher tier currencies. One of the standard tips is to get 3-4 3-star event CEs so you can build up a decent bit of currency right from the start of the event.

Speaking of prisms, is it worth it to get the fous? There's 40 total at 15 prisms so 600 prisms each time it resets. Seems like a pretty heavy investment and a lot of ap.

I don't know in terms of MAXIMUM OPTIMIZATION but you can basically max out a servant's fou stats by purchasing a full stack of both.

Well, that's 120 quartz and about 10 summon tickets dropped on the Gil banner, and only one 5* card (CE Heaven's Feel) out of the bunch. I think I've been spoiled by the drop rates in FIre Emblem Heroes and DBZ Dokkan Battle.

That's too small a sample size.

Alternatively, I took your luck.

Kinda. You can only play on a single device at any one time, but you can use a code to transfer your account between devices. It'd be a bit of a pain to have to do that on a regular basis, though.

It's also possible via multiaccount stuff but not everything works. What's worked for me is multiple profiles on Google Android devices (A Nexus 7 2013 specifically) but apparently not a lot of devices have that enabled anymore for a bunch of reasons. There's also apps that do it but DW's been messing around in the JPN version and not everything works. Android profiles work specifically because you're installing a second instance of the game in the second profile's partition.

Isn't there a theory that the Mona Lisa was Da'Vinci's self portrait of what he saw as his ideal self? Either way I'm wondering what part of Da'Vinci's legend the giant claw gauntlet came from.

I just started playing this game a couple of weeks ago. Its fun and I've so far been able to avoid spending money on rock candies. A couple of questions. Should I only be leveling up a few servants at a time or is having a diverse team a necessity? And when people are talking about burning their servants is that the burn to make them into QP or just sac'ing them to feed other servants?

There is but FGO goes with Da Vinci just considering the Mona Lisa to be the ultimate beauty and wanting to become that. I don't recall the exact mechanics but that's more or less the justification.

I don't think we'll know until the event starts. It seems the original version of the event was very poorly balanced and they made a lot of changes to the drop rates when they repeated it. So strategy will depend entirely on whether we get the original drops, the rerun drops, or something else again.

Well, given that Nerofest was the original event (except for shopkeep Nero), we're probably getting the same deal here.

For a 2-star, he has an attack steroid that beats out a lot of charisma abilities of other servants. And because it's not a skill but a NP, it's cheap to max it out with more copies. Arts chaining can build him up even more. He lacks the versatility of Waver in stalling and shutting down the enemy but he's crit focused.

Or Dracula, or Carmilla...It's definitely true that as long as there is belief, there is power.

It is entirely possible that all the little kids that see Batman show up to their birthday parties and think "Holy poo poo, it's Batman!" might give Batman (Avenger) all kinds of power. Similar to Nursery Rhyme.

Well, Fran and Vlad are acknowledged to have existed in the Nasuverse. Carmilla is weirder because strictly speaking Carmilla is a fictional character in our universe with some loose inspiration from the real Elizabeth Bathory, but in the Nasuverse she's basically an Elizabeth who has completely embraced the monster she became? Or something like that, it's complicated.

That's what I'm saying. My point is that you can summon "Dracula" even though he never existed. The Grail will give you the Servant that most matches the legend.

Eh, not really. For whatever reason, they released Vlad III as a zerker tapping into the Dracula legend instead of his proper class of Lancer, which he is in Apocrypha. That's why he's Berserk Lancer in Orleans. And then they went and released Fate/Extra's Vlad III as a Lancer.

It's the other way around. You almost can't summon Vlad as a Lancer naturally outside of Romania, because the legend of Dracula has completely overpowered the man. Berserker is his "natural" class.


Yeah. Elizabeth Bathory is similar, where even the non-murderess version of her still has a tail and other crazy poo poo. Innocent Monster fucks you up like crack cocaine.

Eh, I don't recall anything noting that, just that he'd be a lot weaker outside of Romania for those reasons.
