I ended up taking Anna's card. Because of course, I said I would.

I have to say, the LB6 servants revealed so far have mostly been misses for me, personally. I like the Vietnamese twins, but other than that they're all....eh....

I'm finally near the end of the Olypmus arc and damn they made Musashi an absolute unit
in her final moments. Hell of a send off for the world's greatest Saber.
And the artwork was really nice too.

Kinda wish you'd have spoilered that, honestly.

Not to be that guy, but first roll baybee.


Did the year 5 gssr and got Romulus and a Jane. That's fine I guess, I didn't have him already at least. Good shit.

Over 600 quartz and 10 tickets. No Castoria, but did a get new Rama and Valkyrie. And multiple NP upgrades for several servants. And a shit-ton of anniversary CEs.
It took me almost an hour to clear out my CE inventory.

840 sq and not 1 castoria...
That's a nice GSSR at least. You have to feel good about multiple 5*s in a single roll.

Sounds like a good overall haul despite not getting Castoria. Did you do the GSSR?

I got who I wanted from the gssr and it was my first double gssr.

It's been the better part of 2 months since I pulled a rate up 5* though... Didn't get a single 5* servant with my 900 SQ today.

Castoria looping tier list. I was a little surprised to see Kiara up there so high. I might finally get a chance to use her.

*edit*

Ran out of Twinkling Stars and QP trying to 10/10/10 her.

Damn, even at 10/9/9 with my NP3 Spishtar, this is a huge time savings over Dantes/Skadi looping. I'm loving it. All the buffs are front loaded and you just hit NPs in subsequent rounds. Very nice.

which part don't you understand? The tier list?

The higher on the chart the character is, the better they are vs. the enemy type across the very top.

So Spishtar/Summer Musashi are the best vs. anything BUT berserkers, where Summer Jeanne is the best, so on and so forth

The bottom left puzzle thing just shows you the 4 pieces you should be using to 3 turn everything. 2 Castorias, your looper with Black Grail, and Fragment of 2004 as your command code.

You can also swap 2004 with Mage's Association if you need a NP gauge buff instead of the damage buff.

Special site with the summer PV.


I'm actually reaching an all time high of SQ right now, from the anni + working through some interludes/story. Currently at 480~ with a bunch more story left to do + 44 tickets. I'm hoping for Kiara NP2, at least NP1 Abby, and Tomoe/Murasaki. None of them outside of Kiara are going to get any gameplay time most likely, so just one each is fine.

Next summer is going to ruin my savings though, Anastasia, Kama, Caenis, Sei, and Okita (alter) all have their swimsuits.

Well I'm down to 18 SQ and 0 tickets, but I got NP2 Kiara and NP1 Illya/Bryn. That was a lot of pulling for not very much result. I got a shit ton of 4* event CEs but barely any of the 5*. Got spooked on my first roll by Emiya, thought I got lucky and got a featured servant right off the bat, but NOPE.

Kiara's summon animation was really cool. Starts off with the default BB Moon Cancer card, then it flashes purple, turns dark purple, then changes and kinda Thanos snaps inside out into a new card.

I hit my goal for the first banner, but I have literally nothing left for banner 2. Such is life.

Managed to get Kiara to NP5 before my first copy of Illya.

Illya NP2, Bryn NP2 now.
I still don't understand why you try to NP2 all of these servants. Illya and Bryn both look like they suck ass. I can understand getting a copy of each for collection purposes, but you're never going to use them when you have your NP5 5* servants up the wazoo.

To each their own though, I do lots of stuff I question myself about too. At least those are some damn lucky Kiara pulls. 3 pulls with multiple 5*s in them since the GSSR.

I was using Rider Mordred to farm doors when I got NP6 Tamamo Lancer trying to NP2 Rider Mordred so there was a reason there. Archer Bonny is still NP1 though.

Plus there's the party cost requirements. You can't always bring in all 5* when using event CE's.

Plus, going from NP1 to NP2 is the largest individual NP damage increase out of NP2-5.

Got NP2 Abby, NP2 Murasaki, no Tomoe, and I'm out of resources. I guess that's not horrible luck, but this game always drains me in the summer. Compared to the rest of the year when I usually have pretty good luck, these banners are always brutal for me. I remember being something stupid like 1400 Quartz to get summer Lion King whenever that was a year or 2 ago. I might buy a pack and pull on a Tomoe focus banner in a few days.

This summer event has been "meh" for me. I vastly prefer the story and the QP of the casino one last year. I like the horror theme, but they treat it a bit too much like a joke instead of actually trying to take themselves serious in-universe. There have been a lot of psychological horror VNs that left a lasting impression on me, shame they didn't go for it with this event.

I don't mind joke events, but it just seems like a waste when they set this up so well to be horror themed, and then just half-ass it. I'm partial to Lovecraft stuff too, so it's probably especially disappointing in that regard. I'd love to see more lovecraftian horror in Fate, considering almost all of the Foreigners are from his works.

Been pulling singles as soon as I get 3 quartz, ended up getting Tomoe. Done pulling on these summer banners now.

Up next, I'll be saving for Himiko and Van Gogh. Should have some time to rebuild my quartz stash.

So I spent some time cleaning out my second archive, shifting around CEs and getting rid of spares that I'll never use, emptying my mailbox etc. Everything is much more manageable now. I needed to do that for a long while. I'm doing well on the event, almost done with the shop, which is the first time I cleared a shop in probably over a year.

Also rolled again this morning a few times and managed to get NP3 Abby and NP2 Tomoe, so now I truly am done on this banner. I liked Tomoe's ascension sprites a lot more than I expected to originally, especially sprite 2. She seems to do ok for Lancer nodes with Castoria looping too. Not better than Spishtar or Kiara, but still a nice change of pace once in a while. NP3 Abby was just a bonus, I wasn't planning on going higher than NP1 with her. So said and done, the only servant I don't have at NP2+ is Bryn, who I just don't really care about anyways. I got surprisingly lucky on 5* servants again and shit the bed on the 4*s, just like last year when I was chasing S. Carmilla.

Damn D deanote666 - your day has come (in 2 years). 7th anni is giving 3 SQ for every non-welfare servant that you have at max limit break. Total 915 if you have every servant.

Also, for Melty Blood fans, it's a big day. Mash is coming to Melty Blood Type Lumina


And Nasu finally must have kicked and screamed until they included Arcueid in FGO, because she's here:


Also a 3* Alter Ego, Xu Fu

Damn, her Field Change actually changes the background of the stage you're fighting in. Hope they revisit Summer BB and do one for her too.
