  1. Fate/Grand Order

    oooo I forgot you are forced to use the required servants. In that case :| I think you are having to choose between a lancer/rider/assassin... So in regards to ushi, don't use her against the assassin, try using the assassin against them and bring any caster you have. I would also bring liz if she is decent level as she has gutz
  2. That is actually some good stuff right there, especially the last two. Chat :D? Also Tay, will this year be the year you respond to my donation :D?

    No problem! Take your time with the story. If possible try to complete the Event. You have quite a bit of time and just blasting through the story should be fine with a carry (try my berserker slot, I have Raikou up which, alone, should have +100% attack for being an event servant in addition to a +50% attack to all units with the CE (my Jalter has the Sumo CE Max limit broken so it's +200% to attack which is also viable as well) Just pair them up with Mash for the defense and let the support carry you. I say this because the free servant you get Kintoki Rider, is an amazing Rider/Quick servant. You may not be able to get NP5 as that will require farming of currency to exchange for those pieces but at the very least you can get the unit itself. Also with the Gatcha, the Simulation is a lot better and sometimes worse than practice. As you can see 700$ just to get waver, but that also got you Lancelot, Li Shuwen (the best arts lancer atm, very good) NP2, Nursery Rhyme (a great buster crit caster) NP2, Cu Chulainn Alter (One of THE best servants in the game), Nightingale NP3 (not really good imho but a 5* none the less), Tituria (lancer altria) another GREAT lancer at NP2. Drake which is a GREAT rider, and Vlad who is a great arts berserker (if needing some serious baby sitting he can turn into a beast and with the right team totally OP and arguably part of the best team comp in the game). And of course Waver, arguably the best support in the game PERIOD and a servant i myself constantly abuse. Which means in 700$ you just got 7 5 stars and 7 4 stars. That's some BS luck if i say so. Put this into perspective. I have randomly launched a ticket at the story gacha for giggles because, at the time, the only servant I didn't have was Jeanne and there has (at the time) been no rate up for her. The chances of getting a 5 star in general is 1%, the chances of getting the ONE SERVANT i didn't have, even lower. And guess who came out of the gacha with a ticket on a random night? Jeanne...yeah lucky On the opposite scale I have on multiple occasions spent a shitload for a servant. Cu Alter in particular took me 10 packs (about 1100$ CAD) to pull and it was in my LAST multi, LAST slot and I didn't get a single OTHER 5 star. I had about 4-5 4 star servants, but those only started popping up AFTER the 550$ point (which means I went 550$ without a single 5 or 4 star servant). This is why I say unless you have a lot of disposable income don't pay or whale for a servant...you could end up at the 1000$ point without the servant. On the other hand you could magically pull that servant later at a random pull.

    Updated my post, you should see a link above the support image. You would be surprised at how OP some lower level servants are, and some even being able to compete with 4 and 5* The main thing you will understand is it becomes less about attack/HP (which is where the rarity allows the cap of stats at unless you are grailing) and more about what your NP does and what your skills do.
  5. Fate/Grand Order

    Lovely! First, enjoy and have fun, this game is, imho, built around having fun, not having the best servants and that stuff. In saying that here is my 2 cents First, daily missions, I would pay attention to them only in that you want to be able to hit the 40ap consistently as fast as possible if you want any chance at levelling servants up at any decent rate. I would highly use support servants for this and paying attention to attributes (example on a saber day use a 90 (or high) level servant) as they do double damage and take half as much, making the farming for you much easier. Gold embers are what you want for levelling up. Other than that they are just their to get you quartz fragments to give you free quartz Second, This game is designed so that you can complete it using non rare servants. In saying that, take a look at G&A Reviews for a good breakdown on ANY rare servants you get as they give you the pros/cons and what craft essences work well for them, how you can use them with various servants, and it honestly makes using servants much easier as they give you a good look at even lower level ones. In saying all that, especially take a look at their video on the 3star and below best servants for each class. Servants such as Hans, Hassan, Cu, etc are notable but most people don't know that servants such as the fat Caesar are actually pretty damn good. (although this was done at the early start of the NA and doesn't tell you about all the new 3star servants that came out. Third, Liz is a great unit imho for lancers and Marie is a fantastic tank and meme lord. Mash becomes amazing later as a fantastic tank/stall unit with 0 cost (later in the game this becomes MORE important than rare servants). Fourth, My code and ID is here, add me, i'm in a battle atm but i'll accept or add you when i can. My CE aren't usefull for farming as I'm currently doing the Onigashima event...but my servants themselves should prove useful for you. Fifth, Limited gacha, roll only if you REALLY want that character, otherwise look up a review and see if they are worth rolling for. Lastly, Play with all the characters you want, and appreciate all that you got. You would be surprised at how utterly amazing some 1,2, and 3 star servants are even beating out 4 and 5 star (i really wana grail hassan to 100...) P.S. Remember you CAN move the Support unit around in your party.

    He gets his shirt back later ;D
  7. Fate/Grand Order

    Oh? What happened with "Koreans" and being offended by FGO? Okita Alter is okay, I want Ryoma more.
  8. Fate/Grand Order

    Yeah the difficulty spike into 30 and then 40 is pretty big, but once you can start farming 40 you will be in the clear. I'll add you after I'm done my meetings. And it's fine...I have every servant so I don't even use supports much. Most of my friends are lower level players anyways. Yeah I ended up playing quite a while with support servants and ended up being annoyed because I wanted to make a team of, say, arts team based but friend servants didn't fit what I wanted. Then after watching a G&A Review video I saw them switch servants around and I went "AWW HELL NAW WHY DID I NOT KNOW THIS!" Almost know one I knew knew this either lol. I played during launch so...my servants were usually the OP ones on the NA server, but I kept them in the back so that I could play with who I wanted, and if I was close to losing I would have that clutch servant in the back. Also, work on Cu when you get him, dude is a beast.

    Congrats, Drake is a fantastic Rider, waifu material and a bro. Couldn't ask for a better rider honestly. Her skills are fantastic and her NP is great as well. Aside from the lack of single target NP she is a fantastic Rider. Herc is pretty much a 5* in disguise so having him will pretty much make you set for the game, he can continuously smash through everything. I would recommend Ascending him first to get his skills ASAP. Don't worry about the cost, you will get enough easily later. Did I already add you? Leader position does nothing really, currently you ONLY need a support servant, the Leader is just the first servant in the slot you have. I honestly would have preferred being able to use only my own servants and at that being able to only use 1 specifically (would love soloing the game without the stupid gimmicks now needed to do it). If you didn't already know (as it took me time for me to find out) you can move the support servant to the back row and rearrange servants around allowing you to have your first 3 servants being your own.
  10. How much does an average visual novel cost to make?

    Depends on people, expectations, etc. You can build one entirely free so long as everyone working on it uses free/original work and agrees that this is free and no one will be paid. Fees come from expectations. If you can't draw you hire an artist and those have either per hour or per work fees, if you have VA's those are usually per word/line. If you don't program you will need one of those and that's either contract/salary or hourly. If you can't write you will need a writer. Do you want music? Someone needs to make that if you aren't using free music. Other positions, scale, etc also account for how much it costs... These are the basics really. It could costs as little as 0$ depending on expectations and capabilities of the person making it (persons), or as much as infinite depending on time/scope/etc

    Or when you whale like I do :| wouldn't recommend it though.
  13. Fate/Grand Order

    No problem, I know too many people who got butt hurt over not getting a character in 500sq, 300sq, and even 150sq. You gotta remember that it's basically a lottery. Sure you COULD get a SSR off a ticket but you are also likely NOT to get an SSR in a shitload of pulls. If you go in not expecting anything it makes it that much more awesome when you roll a ticket for giggles and Jeanne pops out randomly off rate up just cause (happened to me and it was, at the time, the only SSR I didn't have because she hadn't had a rate up yet). Have fun and if you need help on team comps or anything just ask.
  14. Fate/Grand Order

    Is why I tell people that if you are whaling be prepared to either fail or spent a shitload because you COULD go 1k and not get a single SSR (in my case I got Cu Alter, the ONLY SSR I got on my VERY last multi on the VERY LAST slot at the end of my 1k). You will have a better time just enjoying the game and leaving it to luck if you get the characters or not. There are usually reruns and many servants will perma be in the gacha so unless you have, say, a huge damn hard on for Gil, who is limited, I would say don't worry about it. And even then just roll whatever you got and if you don't get them be okay with it, move on, and try again next time. Waver is in pretty much EVERYONES support as almost everyone playing from day 1 has him (because everyone either rerolled for him which wasn't too hard considering there was what...5 SSRs in the gacha back then? or he spooped you later on).
  15. Fate/Grand Order

    I would suggest, like I have to many new players, go for what YOU want not what you think is good. As I mention above, this game you can clear most content with 3* and below with the help of a good support from time to time and most of your friends will have whatever "support" you will need. In terms of "Broken" characters there are really only a few. Waver is one of those characters. The reason being is that he has 3 abilities all of which increase a characters NP gauge, 2 of which increase ALL allies NP gauge. These abilities basically increase 1) all allies attack + NP, 2) all defense + NP 3) A selected characters NP + Crit strength. His NP also gives a lot of debuffs, including some pretty amazing ones such as stun (chance), enemy NP charge down, def down, curse (enemy takes damage per turn for a few turns). And most people HAVE him on their support caster list so there really isn't a need to roll for him. So I suggest picking one you like, and going with that and having fun, especially since you are F2P. I would also state that the gacha can be amazing and shit so don't whale unless got the cash to back it up. In the past few gachas I got Shuten in less than 150sq, I got Li Shuwen and Xuan in 300sq (I was rolling for Li Shuwen who i got on my FIRST roll and decided to roll for craft essence for this event, I ended up gettig 5 total Li Shuwens and 3 Xuan, 2 of which were from tickets). I also got 1 lancelot and 1 D'eon making it 7 total SR and 3 SSR in 300sq Similarly, I went 500$ in the Cu Alter banner without a single SR or SSR until I finally got 1 SR (that's 750sq btw, and then went straight to 1k until I got Cu Alter. Which means in 1k (1500sq) I got 1 SR and 1 SSR. This happened to me 3 times if i remember, once on Bryn banner, once on Okita, and once on Cu Alter. Many other servants either came through tickets or under 150sq, and a handful in between massive spending and barely any. At this point I found that almost no servant is worth whaling unless you are willing to go that mile. Just enjoy the game instead and you will probably eventually randomly get the servant.
