Show some loyalty to your waifu or husbando, jfc. What do you think this is, a game?

Mah boy Angra and my husbando Merlin won't be in for a while, and my waifu Francis Drake also won't be in at the start.

Isn't the guaranteed 4* past the point where angra was introduced into the fp gacha?

In 8 months of playing the japanese game, I got more Angra (4) than 5-stars (2). I'm not worried about getting him on the English server.

I look forward to saying I will reroll but actually not rerolling more then maybe once or twice before succumbing to fatigue and taking the Julius Caesar the game throws in my face.

Crsar is the best designed Servant in the game anyway, so it's not a bad choice.

i grailed geronimo, that isnt a comfort at all

I grailed Angra to level 96. And Geronimo might be bad in-game, but he's a true american hero who deserves respect.

Edit: Clearly, Angra best Avenger and best boy. Robin Hood is best Archer. Based Cursed-Arm Hassan is best Assassin. Kintoki is best Rider. Cesar is best Saber. Jaguarman is best lancer. Best caster is the hardest... let's say Merlin, but I have a soft spot for Andersen and Babbage.

Noble Phantasm can be leveled up to 5 times, getting stronger each time. After that, dupes do nothing.

Well, 5 stars dupes drop summoning circles, and then you can spend 10 summoning circles to get a 5-Star, but no one except the whalest of whales will ever get there.

MonsieurChoc
Oct 12, 2013

Some Servants do benefit from raising their Noble Phantasm, but they happen to mostly be 3-Stars and under, so if you play long enough you'll have them all at max NP anyway.

For example, Robin Hood goes from 900% damage at level 1 to 1500% damage at level 5.

Edit: Ushiwakamaru goes from 1200% to 2000%, 2400% after her strengthening quest.

Just as an FYI a rep on the Facebook page said the game is dropping tomorrow on the stores at 9pm PDT, meaning the game is coming out on the 26th for east coast people like me. I would still recommend checking throughout tomorrow to see if they go back on it, but you'll know.

Maybe the summons arent that good but I think cucu/emiya can just carry me

Jing Ke is the assassin who tried to kill Emperor Qin Shi Huang Di, the chinese Emperor who had the Great Wall built and the Stone Army.

How stingy is the game with experience cards? I've not really levelled anyone yet and have been letting a support Vlad carry me through Orleans, not sure who I want to bulk up first.

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).

The impression I'm getting from skimming the thread is that while there are certainly some Servants that are way stronger than others, the game's chill enough that I can just fill up a squad with whichever anime girls make my heart sing the most. Is that accurate

So the Star levels on a Servant.. Can those be raised? If so, is there a limit to the increase? I just have no sense of who is good and who isn't. I've just been running a party of the 5-star Saber I pulled with a 4-star Berserker. I haven't hit anything I can't handle yet. But I see people raving about Robin Hood, who doesn't seem like he should be that special, so I have to assume he turns into something impressive down the road? The same goes for Friend summons.. Shouldn't they just be training fodder? Or should I save them and stack them up?

I say keep a copy of all the Servants you get at max NP and then do whatever with the extra copies. You never know which one you'll feel like using later down the line.
