    I'm about halfway through part two of the summer event, and man is this a nosedive. The first part was silly and fun, and this one manages to both be vaguely depressing and shallow. Like they wrote the whole second part in twenty minutes.

    Bring back secret dude fort!

    The trial quests remain silly, at least.

    I decided to throw 5 tickets at the JP summer banner. Back to back rainbow spooks got me dupes of Jack and Tamamo, decided to say fuck it and went all, got Summer Jeanne.

    Which, yay! Except now I'm gonna have to spend money if I want to try for Summer MHX (who am I kidding, I was 100% gonna spend money on that banner either way...)

    Edit:

    Hell yeah, look at this edgy dumbass. Not permanent yet, but once part 2 releases and she's here to stay I will officially have Every Jeanne in both FGO and Granblue.

    Spoilers though the end of the event
    The thing with the Boar of Arthurian legend was way too cool to be wasted on this dumb event

    Plus if they’d saved him for something serious we probably wouldn’t have had those awful piglets

    You see lots of things, out there in the swamp at night. Some of them might even be real. But the Bugboy? That's just plain impossible.

    The difference between S.Jeanne's base and FA is kind of stark.

    Jeanne's second look is so far and away the best one that it's kind of ridiculous.
    I wasn't that interested in her and was actively hoping that somehow she wouldn't be on the same banner as Ibaraki until I saw it.

    Okay I love both MHX's and Jeanne's second forms

    Yeah, Sumner Jeanne is never, ever, leaving her second ascension sprite.

    But apparently the lore behind her third form is that Marie designed it which is kinda cute.

    FYI, the final buildings that give Lore will EACH give a Lore, so even if you don't care about the rest, try to make an effort to demolish and rebuild those.

    I have three whole quartz stocked up and ready to go when Martha’s Rate Up hits

    Everything will surely go my way!

    Happy fun fact that people may not realize at first:
    Y'know how a lot of these Summer units have party buffs that do better for males?

    Orion is still classified as a male unit.

    So enjoy your hilarious anti-Male Tama/Orion team or your all All Arts Archer All The Time Squirtoria/Orion team with extra synergy.

    Orion is male

    It's Artemis that isn't

    Yes, but given the unit art and sprite and general depiction, it's not something that people may actively think about.

    I have an extremely silly idea for a team that involves 3 summer units with the male-only star generation buff and Assassin Emiya

    The plan is simple: Emiya generates infinity stars and then Tammy goes to Crit Town

    I can confirm sending a servant to crit town is great fun.

    I just want to run S.Marie+Saberlot and see what happens. You don't even really need a third unit at that point. (Regular Tamamo/Squirtoria/Waver all seem like solid choices)

    Probably works just as well with Jack, even if she doesn't have the crit star bonus going on.

    Well, I can't really be happy about getting one gold servant in ~60 rolls. But that gold servant was Martha, so I'm not unhappy either.

    I'm never quite sure what variety of marine life anyone is in this thread, but that's no guppy.

    On the other hand it's really handy for farming. NPAA chain refunding 150% NP is insane.

    There's no good reason I should throw my remaining 30 quartz at the gacha. Except how I only lack one of the limited Servants. But I don't need that Servant. But I also don't need most of the Servants I got from the gacha.

    The other copies came pretty easily after the initial drought. Which ironically enough is when I turned my desire towards more NP levels for the 4* Servants.

    Only Summer servant I missed out on was Marie, which I'm okay with

    As much as I love Marie, she's not a very good servant in either incarnation

    This was essentially my last hurrah until Merlin because I have little to no interest in any of the upcoming gacha Servants between. I might however do at maximum one pack for CE pulls for Halloween and Nerofest, since I don't have those and Nerofest = lottery. But I can also wait for Christmas which I do have CE's for.

    Babylon banner will hit me

    I want two, maybe even all three rate up servants on the first Babylon banner

    Which sucks because that hits right around the same time as Merlin

    The next servant I’d really like is Ishtar

    I might buy the biggest quartz pack just once when Martha’s rate up comes around, since literally the only summer servant I got is a single Mordred. She’s the one I wanted most, but it’d be real nice to have Martha or Squirtoria. If that fails me I’ll just resign myself to having the worst luck in the thread, as usual.

    So she is

    Bought the pack, had enough for 6 ten-pulls

    Only 4* servant was a Helena Blavatsky. No 5*’s, obviously. These banners have been pretty cruel to me.

    Oh well. Not gonna do any more. I’ll whale for Caster Nero, but no one else.

    I'm mostly clear until the New Year, I think.

    Gorgon's a grail target off Babylon, then I'm going in hard on Musashi.

    I'll do some token pulls for Nero Bride redux and for Merlin but won't go heavy.

    XNnw6Gk.jpg
  • StiltsStilts Registered User regular
    Nero Bride is tempting, but she’s a 5*, so if I’m being realistic there’s very little chance I’ll get her without spending A LOT. So that quartz will be better saved for Ishtar.

    I'm hoping I can eventually pull some more Saberlots, I'm not really going to worry too much about Musashi even though she's really the only good 5* Saber

    Second part of the event is such a pain in the ass to farm. All the Rulers have a bonus to Realta Ore? The boss of the node is an Avenger because fuck you. Want Cement? The only Caster, on a node filled with Assassins, with a bonus is Hans.
