    Incidentally, is Tomoe Gozen a decent ST Archer?  I figured since I decided on Saberlot for the free SR, I might roll for her when Shimosa gets released...

    She's cute but in terms of gameplay she's pretty standard, nothing to write home about. She is buster though, so you can use her for Merlin shenanigans. I prefer Fujinon but I don't know when you guys will be getting the KnK rerun.

    I have a plethora of AOE Servants in all classes... I'm looking at the free four-star Servant in September and wondering which one I should get...  I'm currently wavering between Saberlot, Emiya Alter, and Tristan... I find that I already have all the other four-stars that serve a useful function that isn't already filled by someone else more powerful.  Any advice on which I should go for?  (I have Nerobride and FranSaber for ST Sabers, which is why I didn't automatically pick Saberlot, and I have no SR or SSR ST Archers, which is the primary reason why I'm considering the other two). 

    On another note... grailing.  I find I never consider using grails for practical reasons.  Instead, I inevitably use grails on Servants I love but have mediocre utility... anyone else experience this kind of behavior from yourself?

    Don't have Emiya Alter and never used Tristan, but Saberlot is an absolute crit beast and widely considered the best 4* Saber, if not the best 4* in general.

    As for grails, there's not much point in grailing for pure practicality. The benefits are generally very minor. It only makes sense to grail if you're going to be using that servant an absolute fuckton and you really want every bit of bonus damage on them, or if you just really like them. Sometimes you get lucky and you get both. That said there was 1 case where I grailed for practicality first and liking a servant second, it was Summer Mordred to 90. Not that I don't like her, but that alone wouldn't have gotten me to grail her as I'm very stingy. But it just so happened that with the setup I had with her for farming QP doors, sometimes she'd roll low damage and not get enough overkill hits to fully recharge her NP, and when I grailed her to 90 she had enough damage to ensure that she'd go back up to 100%, 100% of the time. Aside from her, I have Kiyolancer and Tamacat at 90, and Illya, Sitonai, and Abigail at 100 and 2000/2000, all primarily grailed for waifu reasons. Illya isn't very good outside of bursting down big assassins with a Merlin or two, Sitonai is pretty good in the usual situations where an Alter-Ego is good, and Abigail is far and away my most used servant because almost nothing counters her and she brings utility and damage to just about any team.

    About that, flutz. Why you're not rolling in the Knight classes, ruler etc banner? Abby's in there.

    Don't wanna lvl up her NP? :rimu:

    I already have her at NP2, and anything past NP2 is a marginal increase. Upgrading from NP1 to NP2 improves NPs by the same amount as upgrading from NP2 to NP5. Also the odds of getting exactly her are pretty low and I didn't really want anyone else in the knights gacha, meanwhile there were several servants I wanted in cavalry, namely Waver, Skadi, Arjuna Alter, and Illya. It's just simple maths. :makina:

    For those of you who play on the Japanese servers... is Dead Heat Summer Race as annoyingly grindy as the rumors say?

    Edit: Ugh, just looking at the event rewards... and other than my desire to collect Ishtar Rider, it doesn't look like there is anything that is worth hunting for, considering my current amount of ascension materials.  If there were more evil bones or void dust (which always seem to get used at ridiculous rates), I'd be willing to grind them, but there isn't...  I'll just get enough for the Divine wine and Black Beast grease, then ignore the event after... too much energy use, otherwise.

    The summer events are generally fairly grindy, because they tend to last longer than other events.

    I have Proto Arthur from the very first ten-roll I did... but tbh, I haven't leveled or maxed him, because Altria Alter was just better in terms of NP damage, even if he did better regular damage.  Also, evil Altria is hot.

    Anyway... does anyone else have a glut of SR and SSR Lancers?  Or is it just me?  I mean, it seems like if there is an option for a gold lancer to drop in a pickup summon, I get them.  Enkidu, Karna, Tamamo Lancer, Medusa Lancer, Elisabeth Bathory, Vlad III...  I'm a bit tired of Lancers.  I mean, sure, some of the best characters in both the anime and the game are Lancer class or have a Lancer class version, but still...  *sighs*  I just wanted a craft essence, and instead I got Tamamo, and it makes me feel weird to feel exasperation that I got a GSSR Servant. 

    Edit: That said, I want to  mofumofu that tail of hers... she'd make a great dakimakura.

    I have quite a bit more gold casters than any other class, but I do find a lot of lancers to be underwhelming. Between Tamamo for male enemies, Kiyohime for non-male enemies, and Karna for an AoE NP I have all my bases covered and don't use any of the other ones very much.

    ugeh, that's just creepy.  I got four SR servants rolling that free saint quartz from three minutes ago... Helena, Rider Mordred, standard-issue Nitrocris, and standard-issue Elisabeth Bathory...  It's like, when I stop caring I get the drops... otherwise, I get nothing, lol. 

    Edit: When I say 'stop caring', it is because I already blew through 120 free saint quartz I built up trying to get one of the event servants for the hell of it... and I sort of told myself, 'meh, might as well give it one more roll'.  I seriously sometimes think the gacha in this game has supernatural powers.

    The desire sensor is real


  7. The GSSRs I've gotten were:

    Tamamo no Mae NP2 which was a bit of a bummer initially but in the long run was pretty good

    Ozymandias which was fucking great

    Nightingale, meh

    Orion, super meh

    Meltlilith, pretty good

    Abigail NP2, exactly what I was going for and really useful since I frontline her in like 99% of missions

    Da Vinci, not bad

    Goddamn. If anything, both of you sound like luckerdogs to me.

    I'm still at 6 SSRs after a year. 1 limited (Ishtar), 2 GSSRs.

    >imagine not playing on JP and not having accrued 32 SSRs over 4 years :makina:

    Well known among niche groups isn't really the same thing. Most people don't even know what a visual novel is, so a "well known" visual novel is a very different thing from a well known book. 

    Literature fans aren't a very niche group, at least when it comes to the question of "what is a classic book". And a classic something would have to at least be well-known among the group of people that enjoy that something, at least imo.

    Have you heard of Solaris? My very loose criteria for classics is: timeless, innovative/evocative, genre transcending/defining and multi-layered. You can pick it up over and over again and still get something more out of it. It's not gimmicky and reliant on crutches or pandering. To me at least, Lord of The Rings is classic, Game of Thrones is not. Farenheit 451 is classic, Divergent is not. 

    Solaris is well-known if you ask people who care about literature instead of a visual novel forum. :makina:

     

    That said, off the top of my head:

    FSN, Muv Luv, Clannad, Steins;Gate, G-Senjou, Higurashi.

    The only thing I disagree with him on is that silly NoFap or NNN nonsense that's been going around lately. Granted, he is the first sane person I've come across who buys into something like this, but I still don't. He even admits in his own video that there's not much science to go off of, and his evidence is purely anecdotal.

    No Nut November is bullshit, Destroy Dick December is the real shit

    Welp...I'm not sure how to feel about this new years.

    I went in to the NA GSSR wanting Enkidu, got my Enkidu (Good since i went through 5 packs and didn't get him in the banner).

    Then I figured I would try my luck on Musashi and how shit that was....10 packs later I got her after 3 other SSR spoops and a shitload of SR's Most of which I burned since I already had NP5...

    I figured I wouldn't do this after Cu and look where I am...need to rangle myself next time.

    Reminds me of when I whaled to get NP2 Illya last summer and got Jeanne, Karna, Drake, and my third Tamamo, but no second Illya.
