FATE/GRAND ORDER is a gacha-style mobile game from Aniplex based on the popular multimedia Fate series.

Collect Waifus and Husbandos. Or drown in Gacha Salt.

Save the world. Then save it again. Then save it again.

Why can't it stay saved?

Do fun events to forget about that previous question.

Enjoy the occasional fantastically written story chapter that later gets adapted to plays, movies, and or tv shows.

Complain about the terribly written ones.

Cry about Olga Marie and Muramasa never being summonable.

Remember that this is hell that you are walking into

And remember, always.

    I almost forgot how stupidly lucrative this event is. On top of just being aces for servant selection and general nonsense. Good event is good!

    I tried to read the original visual novel but gave up 2 hours in because the writing was extremely bloated and kinda bad.

    I am very pleased at how absurdly good my Caster-form Emperor is. Strong NP gain. Incredibly strong damage for a Caster (2nd highest base attack, but stronger after self buffs). She just waltzes in and declares herself ruler over offensive casters.

    Da'Vinci is still great, is more defensive and spams NPs better, but no one actually has her. Illya still has the single target nuke down, but is much weaker outside of that burst. Sanzang has strong all-around damage, and can NP twice in a row, and does good sustained damage, but her lack of self-buffs hold back her burst. And Sheba, the strongest and fluffiest offensive 4* Caster, isn't out in Global for a bit longer.

    Plus, taking neutral damage from Berserkers is kinda sweet.

    Not saying you have to enjoy it, but you did quit in the introduction of the introduction and character building route of a novel that takes most people ~50 hours to fully complete. It does start slow.

    Unlimited Blade Works and Heaven's Feel are where most of the praise comes from. Fate spends most of it's time introducing the world and characters and having Shirou be useless before he actually takes a stand and does shit in the other two routes.

    That said, for people that despise reading, the Unlimited Blade Works anime adaption, while not perfect, is pretty good. And the two of three Heaven's Feel movies that have been released so far are utterly fantastic adaptions and way better than the UBW anime.

    Yeah. It won't hit for us till next year.

    Sanzang's gotten hers already. Illya will get her's likely this coming month.

    Gah, I'm having a hell of a time getting through even the middle rank quests. Chances are very high that I lose someone and then the whole thing collapses. Guess I have to completely forgo using any bonus Servants and just use CEs and non-bonus (but actually levelled) Servants.

    This sucks. It's always like this--I either do the easy quests with bonus people, or use non-bonus people and actually clear hard content, and I can't tell which is more efficient.

    Depends how big a bonus you can stack and raw drop count/stamina. I'd need to look it up. The base number per drop is worthless.

    Can you win with just your front line and stack bonuses in back?

  • vagrant_windsvagrant_winds Overworked Mysterious Eldritch Horror Hunter XX Registered User regular
    Yeah. Summer Tamamo, Merlin (meh, no bonus, but it's Merlin), and Summer Nero was a great team to clear Nito's Part 1 waves with backline Summer 2 servants.

    It feels so weird having Merlin be the best support for a Caster.

    Ugh, it's so annoying to have to update my support setups and teams for every round 'cuz the drops change.

    At least I seem to be getting A LOT of currency, so the grind shouldn't be as bad as they have sometimes been for me.

    I'm starting to think that me rolling everyone on the banner was secretly a curse

    so many level 1 servants with +2 event bonuses, so few EXP cards

    I'm currently just running Summer Martha+Summer Nero+Support frontline and hoping I can survive to beat the node, if anything challenging comes up I'm pretty sure I'm fucked

    She's very much a Gundam, but like MHXX next year, she's not any one robot. There's lots of summer servants in this game that draw inspiration from Super Robot Wars. Summer BB is LITERALLY Shin Getter Robo for example in all her attack animations. See Also: Summer Salter, Summer Jeanne, Hijikata, Parvati, and Saber Diarmuid that also have attacks or NPs that are clear SRW callouts.

    Nero on the other hand isn't a direct reference, but very much inspired by. I'd say she borrows the most from the Kshatriya rather than the Sazabi myself. Though she takes a sword move from the Sazabi's animations.

    252 tokens in one run (14 drops, +15 per drop). At least the farming is easy after going in so hard.

    Columbus' character and being an unredeemable villainous asshole was the only part of Agartha's writing that was actually decent.

    If you're gonna get rid of him, you have to get rid of Caster Gilles de Rais who's similarly evil and hard to summon.
