    Nah, I just posted the impressive fanmade Chinese live action production back on p10. Seriously, give it a look if you haven't.
    China did a awesome Live Action Arknights video.
    https://www.bilibili.com/video/av80612818?from=search&seid=11987038209342243344

    Keep in mind that's a nine and a half minute FAN PRODUCTION and not an official advertisement, though it reenacts some scenes from some of the official trailers. Like damn man. Damn.

    (Also the rerolling bit at the end is hilarious.)

    It's @Orphane that posted the mini-clip mentioned.

    Well, GT-HX-2 certainly is a thing.

    So it turns out my Hoshiguma is able to survive a hit from the boss...with something like 2% hp remaining O_O. For reference, this means the boss is dealing ~2500 damage through ~570 DEF.

    Basically what ended up happening was Hoshiguma would get hit and then sirens and alarms would blare as Ptilopsis & Silence would enact Operation HEAL THE TANK OH GOD USE EVERYTHING. And then occasionally the boss would swing and Hoshi would just go, "Nope." and nothing would happen. God I love that passive.

    He lived for a good long while and by the time he died, the boss was low enough to burn the rest of its hp down.

    Stop I can only prioritize leveling so many units.

    the important thing about the 3rd mastery upgrade for Meteorite's Buckshot is that while it increases the damage bonus by another 15% to a hefty 215%, it *also* brings down the # of attacks for the enhanced auto down to 3 from 4

    Got close on HX-3 but I’d need to run Adam around with blocks until he ded.

    I’ll spend some time grinding XP and LMD to try and get my team to 45+. My healers are getting taken out by snipers.

    Remember that you can drop someone beefy after them to draw fire, since AI priority is newest unit.

    so is the trick to GT-HX-2 just having a super leveled up defender to block the boss or lots of snaring casters or what

    You can brute force a defender if you level them up but it's easier to run some slow and load up on damage. There's also a window when he shows up where you can sneak some damage on the boss while he just stands around.

    My initial vanguard was the only low ground unit I deployed on both the regular and challenge clears

    due to all the spaces you can deploy a melee on being corrosive tiles aka -50% defense almost no one can effectively tank Big Adam on HX-2, not when he hits for 2700 a pop

    you might be able to hold for a few hits with specific defenders and Shining but the better way to kill him on that one is to use arts damage + supporters who slow

    otoh on HX-3 there are no corrosive tiles for melee defenders so Big Adam can be tanked with def tanks assuming you have a couple of healers

    EX-1, EX-2, and EX-3 down with some minor problems. Also I forgot I could use friend units so I only made it harder on myself until I used a Siege for EX-3.

    HX-1 wasn't much of an issue with all this magic flying around. HX-2 I had Big Adam get through because I again forgot I could bring a friend unit, I'm going back with someone's Eyjafjalla or Ifrit.

    I need to level Cuora some more and then maybe E2 her, but I also leveled and promoted Shining and boy she just takes so much heat off units. Throws a shield on someone every couple of seconds based off her attack and the unit's defense so Cuora just becomes immortal short of being instagibbed. Also her power gives additional defense to all units in her range so there's that too.

    Not sure if I'll do Challenge stuff? Heavy penalty for losing compared to normal stages, no achievement for it, and I could probably better spend the stamina farming.

    The challenge stages are literally just for the pride and 1 ori prime.


    Managed to clear all 3 challenge stages. The last one turned into just smashing lots of AOE into a small box and letting skyfire drop rocks. (Shirayuki/Savage/Skyfire on AOE, Lappland's high dmg, Vigna's high dmg, Hishi tanking as best she could, and just hoping they died before I did). It wasn't pretty at all.

    Figured that was the case. I'll finish off HX-3 once I find someone with a built assist Ifrit because with those blocks it looks all too easy to make a hall of pure death for absolutely everything.

    clearing the regular versions of them also gives you extra coins once from the achievement board thing you can access in the same place as the coin shop

    Woo, cleared HX-3. Not sure I'll try challenge, but at least the regular mode is done.

    Siege, Texas, Cuora, Gavial, Earthspirit, Ifrit, Lava, Exusiai all E1 between lvl 30-45, except Earthspirit who is E1 lv.1.

    Used this strat (though not those Operators):

    @Madican I used Ifrit in my clear, but she isn't fully built. skill level 5 and E1 lv.30. I'll share her if you want to try it though.

    EDIT: I need green skill books to get Operators I use to skill lv.7. Should I farm stage 3 to get more green books, or farm stage 4 to be more prepared for the future at the same time?

    If you need skill books you should be doing Aerial Threat at whatever stage is appropriate for what you're trying to level.

    Sure, that should still work fine. I'll be pairing with units like Skyfire and Lava too so her damage will be excellent.

    I have mine ready except for the chips. For whatever reason I can't seem to beat that damn map. Probably need to level some more guards and my specialists. My team has been primarily SilverAsh with mages, vanguards, and a defender or two backed by medics.

    I got the chips alright, it was farming all the little shit like those starburst things. Ended up buying most of them from the cert shop because I'm too agressively chasing this event to deviate.

    Yeah, I think there's one form of those pointy things I can't get from the event shop and will need, so once I clear the shop out (and I'm close)...

    Gah, it took way too many tries (and way too many not using practice cuz I'm dumb) but I beat HK-1 challenge. Just HK-2 challenge left. But of course then the game booted me so I guess that's something to try later :P Then back to farming rando maps for coins to try and buy out everything in the shop. I'm getting close - mainly just some of the more expensive materials left (which of course are gonna be some of the most useful stuff to get when I'm starting to e2 people :P).

    Been a good day: finished up getting three stars on HX-3, finished up 4-7 for the final base upgrade thingy and finally got a recruit tag worth talking about (Nuker, so hopefully that doesn't drop!)

    Guess I should focus on E2ing Exuisia now.

    Took some time out of the farm to go grab five Caster chips and E1 Eyjafjalla because it is entirely worth it. Taking a look at her E2 materials, she wants the Caster chips from the second level and materials that I can get from the event shop besides those devices, so I think I'm going to make her my first Elite 2! After the event though, because that's gonna absolutely ruin my supply of resources.

    20,000 coins left to go! Stocked up on 100 loxic kohl and now trying to get to 70-80 grindstones from GT-6.

    Lungmen Outskirts Annihilation at 400/400! I did an additional auto after because of the cap increase and it nearly chucked it with six left to go forcing me to throw down SilverAsh and pray he didn't get chopped up by the axe brutes, so I'll have to take control and pop Cuora's shield earlier next time. After that it should be a solid auto though!

    To celebrate I went and threw a ticket into the Shining/Saria banner because it's been good to me. Orange light, but not flames, so a 5*! And it's...a Guard unit named Lappland? Haven't seen this one before, looks like a ranged Guard similar to SilverAsh, she's got a pretty nice baseline skill that lets her tank on the frontlines, and E1 has a skill that changes her damage to Arts a la Mousse so that's sure to be helpful.

    Don't think I'm gonna clear HX-3. Goign to have like 600 sanity of burgs to consume and just tap through today and farm out the shop.

    Also finally cleared the 4th building mats one: Getting cheesy with push/pull rushes vs those armoured mages and then having Cuora and Specter as immortal turbo blockers that don't need healers for the lower rung's rush worked out.

    Guard, AoE, Slow, and Fast-Redeploy in one recruitment. Wish I could spread some of those out.

    I don’t have Shirayuki yet, so I went with that.

    Woowoowooowoowoo. Got a top operator tag!

    The only combination tags I had were melee and dps which both had a high risk to give me SilverAsh or Exu who I had, so I decided to just go blind with nothing else selected. Got Siege, woop woop!

    What is this I don't even.
