    She won't be back in the game for another 2 years, as she's event exclusive. They've got time.

    No, no it won't, but I didn't grail him so he could be Cleo bait. I did it because he became my favorite, and has never let me down, so it's my way to pay back my partner in crime here. Silly as it is, the big guy really does hold a special place for me, so the act of getting him back with Cleo does hold significance to me.

    Well now...

    You know that feeling of using the free Login Summon Ticket on the Event Gatcha, and the game deciding to give you the 5* Craft Essence of the event?

    That just happened.

    Enjoy those moments, for they aren't too often. That one craft essence in particular is a good one to have show up like that.

    Oh yeah, I know it is a rare and interesting feeling, one to savor when it happens.

    It's happened before in other games, first time here in F/GO. May it happen again before 1 year passes.

    Finished Rush-Grinding Orleans (Fafnir + Jack the Ripper + NP Maria the Ripper = Dragon Steaks) and I should have Caster Elizabeth before I get some sleep tonight

    Sadly I have no more room on my main account, but if you need a few more servants at your disposal I've got room on my "test" account. The friend code for it is 424,599,551.

    I'm Doing good now, Got in contact with a friend and got him onto my friend list. His Ruler Martha Helped against that stinking Assassin class Mad Dragon in the middle of the Caster Fights.

    I also go the Decorating Event Craft essence form a summon ticket pull so I have both of those. Right now I am farming for Candles and cupcakes to empty out the shop since I am a newer payer and need all the statues and Mats, along with the QP.

    Edit: I also warned said friend that the Second Limited Danganronpa Artist created Servant is later this month. He missed Avenger Dantes, and does not want to miss Assassin Cleopatra.

    Meanwhile I need to rush and get caught up to Camelot so I have a decent chance to be ready for Babylonia and then the Raid chapter after it.

    Well, finally got the last of the reverse dragon scales to empty the Event Shop, now to K.O. the weekly missions (gotta find Divine Servants) and then blitz the main story as far as I can before this Year's Halloween release.

    Babylonia will be in Dec if it keeps to Schedule...and Solomon not long after.

    Solomon might be rough with lower bond servants, but it's not like it's too hard to get it up these days. Also keep in mind we still have a good 3 or so events before he hits too, so you'll have enough to do until then.

    True enough, but I'd rather be caught up in the story and taking my time powering everyone else up for and during events rather than be behind and miss something Key.

    Add in Solomon is a Raid chapter, and once its done we can not go back to it. Gonna go punch Proto-Cu's lights out a few time before back to Septem.

    Adjust that, we just got the 4 million Downloads Campaign on top of the expected Strengthening campaign, and Avenger Jalter's back into the summon pool from tonight to the 24th.

    I'll be using the 7 free Summon tickets to go for her but that's it for me. Good luck to everyone who tries for her.

    I'll be putting those towards Cleo, as I lucked into getting a copy of her last time around. She's nice to have, but not as necessary as people make her out to be.

    Well...seems you will not have to wait Long, the Second Halloween Event starts tomorrow night.

    I did one try for Avenger Jalter with the first login ticket, gonna spend the rest on Cleo as soon as she is in.

    I threw that one at her too, but my phone died before it showed me what I got. Just gonna assume it was a Lu Bu or something since I didn't have a second copy of her come up. As for Halloween, it can't be tomorrow. They just started the 4m stuff, and they hate overlap. We'll see it next Wed at the least.

    *double checks* Dang, last night it said 10-18 was the start in the game when I logged in for the refresh & bonuses. I must have been really tired to miss that.

    Still, I have 120 Quartz saved up to try for Cleo next week so I am in a little better shape. And I'm sailing the Seas on Okleanos so I am making headway in unlocking stuff and catching up to the main story. Still need to blitz London (no WW II insult intended!), E Plurbus and Camelot to feel fine though.

    Still, guess I will still spend those Summoning tickets going for Avenger Jalter as no 5* has graced me yet, and she is a good first Avenger to have.

    and oy vey at the 40k FP we get tonight.

    40k is a lot for a new player, but at some point that really won't seem like much. Unless you really feel like taking a shot at Angra, you're best off using it next week. FP can get you the event 3* essences, which is handy for someone who may not be spending quartz on said event. Also, you should try a little bit for Jeanne. She has a neat combo with that Liz you have, which now works since Liz is getting her upgrade.

    Hmm, sound Logic. I'll stick to the daily free 10 pulls on the friend gatcha then while using the tickets for Jalter. If I do get her, i'll stop using the tickets and save them for Cleo.


    Serious Question for when I get my first 5*: when is the best time to Grail a Servant? Wait until they have reached Max Level & Ascension for their * rarity or just do it any time?

    Grails are better off used on lesser rarity servants tbh. They tend to get more out of it, and it costs a lot less resources in general. However, to answer you properly, you can't grail any servant until they are max ascended and leveled. They are a really limited resource, so make sure you want to do it before using them. Also keep in mind going from 90 to 100 takes 5 grails (2 levels per grail compared to the regular 5), so that's a thing to consider too.

    Otherwise, as long as the servant you're grailing is one you like, rather than one you like the function of, you really can't go too wrong. Even if they're "objectively bad" like Saber Gilles or Stheno.

    Thanks, especially on the 5 grails per 2 levels.

    As for Saber Gilles, he's actually the only Saber I have until the Halloween Event next week and I earn Saber Liz.

    Just complete Camelot and you will get an amazing Saber. No need to waste grails on Gilles.

    HA! I'm only spending Level up and Ascention Maerials on him. I'm a bit of a collecter & completionist so when he maxes for his 3* self and I don't need him to fill out my Saber position, he's going with the rest of the 1, 2 and 3 * I don't need and retiring to the Second Archnve if not outright burned for QP and prisims.

    F/SN Lancer is the only one I might consider Grailing

    Not gonna lie, a grown man was in tears last night when I made it happen with a single ticket. Believe in the power of the narrative lads, and make your own luck.

    And in Inverse I spent the 40k Friend Points we got from last week and only got a Billy the Kid for my efforts (as well as a bunch of 1 and 2 Star CE's for powering up my 4 and 5* ones) and none of Romani.

    Saving my 150 Quartz I have to make my shot at Cleo either tomorrow or Sat.


    Still, Congratulations.

    Billy is an excellent Archer if you invest in him, so you didn't do too bad. Hopefully you get a Cleo as well, but always be prepared for the possibility things won't work out. The first real quartz drop for people tends to either make or break how they feel about the game, so best of luck.

    Also, if it makes you feel better, I dropped about 75k for before my first Romani, so it happens. I've heard of folks going 100k+ without one.

    Truthfully? Even with just my Lancer Liz I am having a lot of fun grinding the story.

    I get the feeling I will slow down a lot in interest once I am caught up combined with the slog for the Items I need for Ascension & Ability leveling, but the Fate universe I have always had a interest in.

    Any problem with me listing the Servants for the Fate/Grand Order Duel game in a post or 2 since Series 2 is now out and people are starting to look if there is a hidden 6th figure for that set.

    Edit: Also, going for Cleo tomorrow when I can talk the pulls with another friend who has some interest in the Nasuverse as a whole.

    Well, I'll do them next post then.

    For now, I am now in the average players: use 150 Quartz, don't get the Limited 5*. Not completely empty handed as I did see the orbs above the shield spark Gold and got Helena, as well as getting Dangerous Beast, a second Count Romani and 3x of Witch under the Moonlight as well as other assorted 4*CE and a mix on 3* servants (NP2 for Robin Hood and Lu Bu now).

    Still maybe I will get lucky and get her in a future one. I am seriously considering spending just enough real cash to make a pull on the Lucky bag for next year for a guaranteed 5*.


    For now, just Saving the quartz to try for Ishtar and Merlin.

    Helena is a good stand in if you lack Waver, though she takes a lot of mats to make her skills really usable. While that sucks you didn't get a 5*, you should be very well off for clearing out the shop, which as a new player, should be a goal if you can.

    Chirstmas 2018 with Jeanne D' Arc Alter Santa Lily is nearly over, and Babylon is to be released this week, most likely as soon as the Christmas event ends. Has anyone here managed to get Rintar or has she spurned your attentions? Is the Christmas gatcha not handing out the Gilles dolls or Yule Logs you need?

    Well, get ready to put those problems aside. Cause Babylon begins the Countdown.



    Two weeks After Babylon...Salomon

    My meme account got her with a ticket, but my main didn't. I don't mind though, as I am literally swimming in FP from Cleo.

    December 29, 2018.

    At 2:32 Eastern/11:32 p.m. Pacific, Trash heap Andromalius, the 7th Pillar of the 72 Demon Gods Fell, revealing the path to Solomon within the final Singularity.

    Not long after...The Grand Order Ended.


    The First Arc is over, how is everyone feeling after all of that?

    I ended that story the same way I started it, with my first servant. Zero regrets.

    My first Rider finished it for me, Ushi's NP as he cast the Tenth Ring but forgot to fire the NP, just spent the last 2 actions Buffing.

    Any luck getting Merlin?

    I threw a few 10 rolls at him just cause, but I really wasn't worried about getting him. Got Ana and Astolfo for my troubles though, so I can't complain. Might take a shot at Musashi tonight if they actually do something with New Year's like they're supposed to.

    You would not believe the Salt flying in the F/GO Discord right now over the fact there is no news on any new years Banners or Maintenance.

    As for Merlin I tossed 2 tickets, 60 Quartz I had saved and the free 30 we got for reaching Solomon before the Final Grand Order chapter Maintenance at him.

    Had a Silver Berserker card morph into Ibaraki on the first Thirty of the 60 Quartz and Merlin decided to join me from the free 30. First SSR Servant for me.

    Yeah....don't do discord, but I'm not surprised they're upset. I have /alter/ to watch meltdown, so I'm good on that end. As for Merlin, grats. So long as you have decent buster servants to use with him (like Ibaraki) you'll do fine. He sadly doesn't really work for me, so while novel, he's not really necessary.

    Well, the New Years banner snuck in with a simple data update, did you decide to do the GSSR and go for Medb Sorc?

    You had a 1 in 4 chance considering the riders in there.

    I tried for Tamamo....again...and got Waver....again. Knew it was going to happen too, but that's just how things go. I expect to be stuck permanently rolling the caster one, since Schez is coming soon, and not having her is not an option for me.
