    That fight isn’t hard, but your approach to it was bad.
  3. Fate/Grand Order General

    That makes sense. I don’t follow the story so the requirement does seem odd then. Still though, considering the devs have been pushing story locks for a while, I don’t have a problem with it. Like I said, it sucks for newer players, but my beef is with older players who refuse to do story despite having plenty of time to do so between events. I recently got into this debate in another forum so the topic is very draining for me at this point.

    I would not call it “pointless” as JP players have been warned continuously to catch up with story for the past two years. I do think it’s unfortunate in your case considering you’re a newer player, but in general I have no problems with content locked behind story. That’s...kinda the one thing that separates FGO from the majority of gacha games.

    Finishing the event with 90 boxes opened. I am now dead inside.

    I used all my silvers on the Gil node to get Jeanne Lily leveled. When I drop to 200 sq I’ll redeem my socks for some bronze apples. I’m trying ok I don’t think I’ll do ever do something like this again. Farming all these boxes is getting to me. 100 boxes in 10 days (what I did in GilFest on JP) is doable. 33 in 3 days...isn’t.

    Don’t open, salt inside. Just hit Box 60 on NA. How am I still alive. 3 turns go by fast. Points above I’ve used every single gold apple I have at this point (83). Got another 39 runs from bronze apples lying around, then spent another 12sq on refills to get where I am now. My next goal is to hit Box 72. ...I’m not going to make it am I.

    I think you need more buffstacking for an NP1 Mordred to consistently wipe final wave than is worth. As of today’s farming, I have never failed to 3 turn with the comp I posted previously, but my support Mordred is always NP2 at a minimum. Lv 100 Holy Night Supper also makes a huge difference as you get additional Attack (effectively 2k Fous) and you can leverage the crit buff better. That’s a big deal for my Waverless setup. 33 boxes down. Running out of gold apples. I don’t think +5 is going to cut it past 50 without quartz. I’ve seen double Scathach used as well on the discord. The Bazette MC accomplishes something similar due to having 50% Quick Mana burst, but it also comes with star absorption to make Scathach’s crits more consistent.

    Thanks. Unfortunately NP1 won’t work. It straight up hits 30% weaker than at least NP2 with interlude, or NP5 without interlude. If anyone wants to ape the comp, it’s Arash / ST battery (Kuro or Kintoki) / Mordred / Helena / Jeanne Alter. Plugsuit MC. For CEs I use Ox King and Carp to reduce RNG. They’re not needed but they’re nice to have. Arash wave 1, ST wave 2, then Mordred wave 3, using Jeanne, Helena, and plugsuit to buff her. My bonus is only +5 atm cause I’m living that no 3rd drop life.

    Started farming in earnest. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like I’ll be getting 100 boxes in 3 days. Will settle with doing as many as I can. JASL is Lv 85/90 and 10/10/10, and Archuria is 10/10/10. Working on getting Saber Shiki to 10/10/9 (out of Lores) and getting the rest of my servants to FA. Managed Paracelsus, Eric, and Fergus from today’s boxes. But I need more... I was struggling to do a 3 turn using Assassin Scathach and Kuro with Royal Brand, but with the help of a good friend on discord I’ve been able to 3 turn using a friend’s Mordred with ease. Anyone here with NP2 Mordred, a leveled MLB HNS, and a Lv 10 Secret of Pedigree? I’ll be more than glad to shower you with FP.

    @The Priest Spent the better part of the morning discussing the new servants on my usual discord server, then got to use one of them for some nodes in LB3. Lanling Wang, the SR Saber, is ridiculous. To summarize, he’s essentially Waver and Caster Gil rolled into one package. He’s also an excellent partner for Tamamo and provides one of the largest damage amps in the game for Arts teams. And he’s pretty. I spent tickets earlier and didn’t get him. I will be throwing quartz at his rateup on Friday though. The other two servants are not very noteworthy, unfortunately. Meanwhile in NA: Cricket noises I got nothing to do until the final lotto node opens up in about a week. Then I can ascend the rest of my silver and bronze servants and the Saberlot spook from my Shiki rolls and grail Jeanne Lily.

    Hozoin’s ceiling is very high, yeah. I think Mata Hari is a sleeper pick like Mephisto. She looks terrible next to REGEND, but her support is good when it comes into play. Better than Benkei and the other memers in D who are completely outclassed no matter how you look at it. Sanson can stand to drop though. Powermod is nice but both his 1 and 3 skills are a complete nonfactor in most fights. This is unlike, say, Izou and Billy, who have high damage ceilings due to how their powermods work.

    Good list overall. However, I disagree heavily with George and Euryale not being S. George is different from most taunt servants in that you can either run him as taunt fodder with his Bond CE, or run him with supports to keep him alive. Depending on your CE of choice, George can easily hit 80%-90% Defense Up for 3/5 turns with Ascalon up. He is underwhelming as a damage dealer but is very durable and consistently keeps damage off of his team due to the short cooldowns on his 1 and 2 skills. For an example of how that works in practice, I was able to clear the Heracles match in Nero Fest without damage CEs. My pointman was George with MLB Shroud of Magdalene. So many turns where he just straight up took no damage. Euryale is interesting to talk about. She’s usually compared to Robin, and considered much worse when not fighting males. This isn’t entirely true. She can use her NP more often due to Vampirism, and the charge drain gives her a stall utility that Robin lacks. Her NP also inflicts Attack Down, and it’s not very difficult to fire it off more than once every few turns due to how good her NP gain is. Robin Hood out of the box is more usable than Euryale though, I agree. Besides that, in the future I can see Cursed Arm Hassan moving up. His Instinct buff makes him far better at star generation than Fumma despite having worse cards. His survivability is also much less suspect due to PfA.
