Xth for laser beam guaranteed to blow your mind
So, is there a reason behind adding possession-type servants like Zhuge Liang and Galahad in Grand Order rather than having them as their own characters? Galahad seemed like a pretty flat character that was more of an ideal than person in the Arthurian books I read, but Zhuge Liang at least had a ton of upside along with his human failings. Have they been doing this kind of servant in other works besides Prisma that I'm not aware of?
I prefer the Hector one because of how smug he is.
Shit that can't be summoned normally, must find an appropriate host to manifest into.
They are psuedo servants, the servant's personality is within the vessal, but they're sharing the same body.
its the same thing Joan did in Apocrpyha.
There are different reasons why those servants can't be summoned normally, like they're too divine or something.
Demi-servants like Mashu are an entirely different thing.
That isn't Galahad inside of Mashu, that's just Galahad giving his power to Mashu, and she transforms into a half servant.
Kind of like HF Shirou, or Seig.
You ask "IS THERE ANY REASON" like we don't have a dozen examples of this already basically.
The reason that Zhuge gave Waver full control of their vessal, is because bitch is a loner who doesn't give a fuck, yet he's also just like Waver in some ways. They're both smart guys who hate people, except for one loud mouth guy who was like a leader to them that they loved, despite acting tsun.
Other Pseudo servants will have fused personalities, or tag team personalities.
Who's ready for the underwhelming event details tomorrow?
I guess that would be a Freddy Mercury craft essence that works well with Marie Antoinette.
Yeah, it's nice for them to find a way to move some of the non-servants into battle roles, but Zhuge seemed like he would be alright on his own. Although it almost seems like they've avoided some of the Three Kingdoms and Sengoku era stuff since it's so well known in Japan that the characters seem like they might be too well known in a certain design, like Guan Yu who appears in tons of shows with the same appearance with minor differences.
Yeah, this makes the system make sense ingame, thanks.
I mean, if you enjoy watching it happen to yourself that is.
No one here will post anything but the constant good rolls they pull which makes you think you can do it only to find out that you won't be getting shit.
I'd only find it enjoyable because I know I don't need to roll it since I'm poor in quartz right now.
You're right though. The fact that all the posts will probably be about them getting someone like Mordred or whoever will probably set me off more than anything.
Stupid Christmas event being so good despite not handing a single quartz.
It began with HF actually. There were times when Shirou blanked out and it seemed like he was stil functioning and getting all Archer (like gripping Rin's gem without knowing why and who told him it was supposed to be important). After that, we have Apocrypha example with Sieg and Siegfried.
As for Zhuge Liang, it's just a way for Waver to be reunited with Iskandar at last.
Whilst it may look like a bra or something similar at first, it is actually an immensely hard chest plate that allows little to no movement from the insert, and nothing to penetrate from the outside.
So long as this Event has talons and hearts in the shop, a decent 5* in the gacha, a chance to earn Quartz or Tickets, and plenty of apples and mats harvestable from the quests, it will be God Tier.
It'll be tough to ever surpass the Honnoji Event though.
>Kind of like HF Shirou, or Seig.
Except that Shirou nearly died. Mashu should be breaking down and losing her memories. or getting paralyzed after a battle. Show us some backlash rather than this perfectly boring Mary Sue who can beat Servants.
Was the NP animation for SYSTEM KERAUNOS made to be only viewed in regular speed?
I feel like it's too fast in x2 speed or whatever, and in comparison to other servants who's NP still looks fine when fast forwarded.
I have Mordred and Arturia max leveled. Okita's at 70.
Lily and Fat Caesar are 60, though I still need to level Caesar to 70.
Fergus and Siegfried are both at 50, don't have the materials to ascend further.
Saber Alter's only at 40, and both D'eon and Gilles are sitting somewhere in the low 30s.
I swear I'm not a whale, this is the only class I have every servant of.
ready for hearts
post your saber event teams
Okita 90, Alter 80, Lily 70, Faber 40, Fergus 40.
I might do like a single roll at some point after the event map (if it's a map) and pray I get Mordred or Arturia (or the new Saber), but I'm not expecting much.
Vanilla Saber is stuck on fangs and I'm waiting to see if Lily gets different Ascension items tomorrow
You can say that again. Mata Hari, the riders and Kiyohime need some serious love.
While we're at it, how long did people have to wait before seeing some GB doujins? We could use that as a reference.
tfw you meme roll the wrong event servant
if i can roll regular arturia i'll have the whole set
Nigger, Tesla doesn't even own any goats that he kills, eats, then brings back to life to pull his cart around.
I finally got Fergus yesterday from the FP gacha and am currently in the process of feeding him.
One side is not like the other.
Lizardman and Caesar Salad levelled, at this point I'm really wishing for Fergus or even Gilles.
Who /Siegfried/ here?
Because it's mediocre. The drop rates for higher tier items are shit compared to 40AP, and you get more of the lower tiered items just by doing those quests than you would doing the 30AP.
30AP always has the three currencies, but worst drop amount. It's like:
You farm 10AP for Item A
You farm 20AP for Item B
You farm 40AP for Item C
30AP has all three items A, B and C in one quest, but the amount is so shit you're better off farming them individually.
Basically, the events lately have special items that drop from certain APs.
1 drops at best from the 10AP, another drops most at 20AP, the 30AP usually has the most dropping of the 10AP but only in 1 batches, average of the 20AP, and average of the one it's meant to drop, and the 40AP usually drops the most of the last item.
I don't think there have ever been events with 4 different items we had to drop, but only in that instance would the 30AP become useful.
Also, in the last two events we've had enemies in the quests that have higher drop rates of rare items.
For example, in the Honnoji Event we had Dragons, Demons, and Chimeras that sometimes dropped Scales, Hearts, and Talons instead of points or event items.
Same thing happened in the Christmas Event. Sometimes the big snowmen would drop Octuplet Twin Crystals and the reindeer would drop Horseshoes.
I fucking hated when the Christmas event would drop things other than the event items though.
I mean, maybe in the long run I'll be appreciative, but Christ I just wanted to sell out the event shop of what I wanted.
Forgot to mention the CE you can buy from the shop can also drop from any event quest, so if you can, avoid buying the last two ones that need 40AP currency and buy the ascension mats you need instead.
Yeah, I did it three times. Lost my Day 1 account, had to start over with a new main where I rolled Martha/Atalanta, a friend gave me a Jeanne account, and I created a third account when Drake came out after I miraculously rolled her in my first attempt on a new account.
The only Servants I'd create a new account for now are Gilgamesh and/or Semiramis.
Ready for some hearts and talons.
I managed to finally get Tesla on the third throwaway account I made, so I'm trying to get it to a point where it'll hopefully be able to do this event if they have Gears/Pages, but Christ I don't see this happening.
Have fun wasting your Quartz like an idiot because you'll need to do more runs than your wait time allows if you want to sell out the shop or get the stuff you want.
40AP quest drop items are fucked.
Thanks, I'm actually more interested in ascension mats than the CE or Saber Lily. I've three Golden Sabers already and it's a nightmare to farm ascension material. Unless the CE is very good, I wouldn't bother that much.
I think the only case where I'd start fresh is if they actually put out an English release of this so I could actually read for the plot.
Or, I don't recall, but there's a gallery of all old scenes too right? So if I could just transfer data...
Christmas Event had a stingy shop. Probably because we'd just had the smorgasbord that was the Honnoji Event.
That event was mostly for hoarding Fous, QP, and EXP Cards.
I'm hoping that this means the next Event Shop will be packed full. Hearts, Talons, and Scales please.
I found it hilarious to learn that you weren't supposed to guarantee get a 4* from that, because way back a few weeks after the game came out and I started, I got Camilla form that and was like "who's this slut, whatever", and assumed you're supposed to get a 4*.
Don't you get banned instantly for that crap?
I think I got around 300 EXP cards sitting in my Gift Box after that Christmas event, it was fucking beautiful.
Then I lost them all levelling up servants like a mad man in hopes of gathering enough Quartz from interludes for the New Years gacha.
I ended up only rolling 2 Kintoki's in a row, who I already had before this event. 108 Quartz down the drain.
And Horseshoes PLEASE
There is no place in the game to efficiently farm Horseshoes. The Centaurs only appear on that one island and you have a better chance of being struck by lightning while getting a blowjob from the Tooth Fairy and winning the lottery.
Two? God, don't remind me.
I blew a TON of Quartz trying to roll Gil and/or Kintoki and couldn't get either of them only to wake up the next day and singles roll Scathach with free Quartz
Probably. Babies and Gears were once rare event only items and now we can farm them pretty efficiently from London.
I got all 10 of the gears I needed for Okita from Clerkenwell's Free Quest. Didn't have too much trouble. Need more for Frankie so I hope they're in the shop too.
That Chimera is the worst. He will NOT drop shit and if you don't go in there with your NPs ready, he is going to fire three straight criticals at your strongest Servant.
I hope his daughter grows up to date men of questionable moral character.
I hope there are opportunities to get more QP in this event too.
Yeah, yeah. I know.
After Christmas I had 40,000,000 QP and laughed saying I'd never have a problem with it again.
>Three 5* and three 4* Servants getting ascended and skill level ups later
>3,500,000 QP remaining
I'm on about 115,000,000 because I don't level up skills past the moment they need Red gems, or after I feed them their first red gem requirement.
Still salty as fuck that the academy outfit or whatever (the one with the NP boost) is permanently increasing NP of 1 Servant by 20%.
You'd think it'd go up by 2 or 3% per level or something, but nope instead it stays average shit all the way through.
>farming Homunculus Babies
somewhat ready. need a few saber pieces for morgdred. Hopefully hearts are in the event shop.
Okay, this is my first time hearing that - and I'm pretty fucking pissed. So I've been dressing like a Harry Potter cosplayer for nothing.
I'd be a little saltier if it wasn't for the fact that said 20% plus Drake's 36% mean I only have to get her NP gauge to 44% to fully charge it.
I like sparing her the Kaleidoscope in favor of the NP boosting power of Heaven's Feel
Yeah I've got my leader servant as Nobunaga for the day too.
Still use Jet with Kaleidoscope regardless
Why do you not read up on the details of clothes on the wikia/cirnopedia?
The health recovery at least becomes sort of useful, but aside from that it's crap.
This is why most people recommend the powersuit, however I'm still using the academy outfit just because that NP boost and shuffle cards sometimes saves me a lot.
Thanks for giving my goddess the love she deserves senpai.
In a perfect world, Jeanne would have a three round Taunt Skill and a ton of attack and defense buffs instead of her terrible skill-set.
Seriously, she's known for spurring me to fight and supporting them on the battlefield and inspiring soldiers - and she doesn't even have Charisma or an NP boost?
Jews and pirates didn't become enemies until modern times when the Jews in Hollywood started getting pissed about pirates not paying 10 bucks per person to see their shitty movies.
Look at this strategy:
>Equip yourself with Chaldea Battlesuit
>Put David in the backrow if you have many golden in your party.
>If the boss is charging his/her laser np next turn and yours need one turn to recover, use the servant switch option to get David in place of of one of them
>cast harp of healing (allows evade one attack+recovers HP for the whole party)
>fucks up servant enemy who will blow his load while he can't touch them
I had him fucking up noble phantasms every time.
i went to go test this out
went to my party screen to put david in and he wasnt there
i just realized i burnt the free david from okeanos
I've always felt like Jing Ke deserves to be in that category. She's a fucking buzzsaw and when I had my first account she was the only thing that got me through France.
She just gets overlooked because so many of the 1* and 2* Assassins are broken and Carmilla is actually a pretty common 4*.
Also, it doesn't help that her NP has a chance of actually killing her too.
Tesla is so fucking hardcore, I want to start studying whatever it was he did and become the next Tesla.
Fuck you, I believe Tesla was a bad ass enough mother fucker for that to be true.
Super success chink meme doesn't seem to work with 10 rolls
Well, I know your feel.
Everyone under the damn sun but me has managed to roll Uncle Vlad and he's the Berserker I wanted the most.
I spent so many Quartz - and yet he never deemed me worthy of his love
>literally that many black keys
Did you skip on a donation to the church to make Kirei hate you that much?
You're a moron. David's the best non 5* Archer (Orion is shit). Take this advice from someone who has Evil Cat and EMIYA, David's more useful than they are and you can roll him easily to max his NP which isn't Robin tier but does damage deal nicely and evades defense.
Sucks to be you, thanks to David 40AP Gilgamesh didn't one shot me the other day where he began to buff himself and EA my party on the first turn.
He always pulls this shit if he lives after my first charge.
David's Harp of Healing is the one skill I would fully max.
When are they going to update EMIYA's NP so it does extra heavy damage to all characters with the hidden trait "King of Heroes"?
It's kind of time based.
Some guy made a video where he rolls two devices at the exact same time and gets the exact same rolls every time (except one time he doesn't roll them at the same time).
This can't really be manipulated and ultimately it is RNG since we can't see the future so we can't determine what time is the correct time to roll. The most we can manipulate this is by all rolling at the same time and praying we all get the same good roll if we even get a good roll.
Because Arturia represents the hopes and dreams of warriors. She ceased to be a person to be an ideal they look up, admired or resented because it was too perfect/unreachable.
I used to not care much for her, but hearing the amount of bullshit and sacrifices she made (specially on Kay's POV) made me win a respect for her. She deserved better than what she got.
>Because Arturia represents the hopes and dreams of warriors. She ceased to be a person to be an ideal they look up, admired or resented because it was too perfect/unreachable.
When you phrase it like that I'm really not sure if you're being serious or if you're just mocking the character.
I notice that my shittiest draws seem to come right after the dailies when the free quartz are given out. As if they deliberately drop the rate because so many people are rolling at the same time.
Also, I rolled two of my 5* Servants on the 4th of the month on my second roll after logging in. (Francis Drake on November 4th and Scathach on January 4th)
Also, I've had a ton of success rolling when there's a 4 in the time, but that's just personal superstition.
I'm serious. Arturia ceased to be human to become an embodiment of chivalric ideals. Even when she was young, she stopped to dream so Merlin trained her to be a king during her sleep (and she only got 3 hours of sleep). That's why the knights were obsessed with her because she was effectively the wielder of what they hoped to aspire to be.
Excalibur, which is made of hopes of glory and dreams of people in the battlefield, and Arturia are one. Shirou pointed it out in Fate route. So she was more a reflect of the sword's light. People are obsessed with her because she effectively represents the exaltation they are looking for.
At the same time, they resent her because of this perfection. Shirou pointed out again: "they didn't want her to be human, but they rebelled her because she didn't have human feelings." Admiration isn't understanding and awe turned into fear and resentment because she was too removed from humanity. Arturia is a very complex character, but sadly most TM works reduce her to big eater moeblob.
>I'm not sure if you're giving me your real honest feelings on the subject or just being a satirical asshole
The internet has destroyed what little trust and faith in humanity we had left.
Stop samefagging, Takeuchi. And get back to work on the Satsuki route.
I reckon in the end it's all hardcore superstition.
I rolled a Tesla at 3:46:44-52 or thereabouts on my alt account so I'm going to try that tomorrow with my ticket, but ultimately it's RNG but not RNG in that two people rolling at the same time won't get different things so I guess that's neat in some regard, but fuck the fallouts it'd cause if I rolled at the same time as a friend and my phone lagged by a second and they got the event servant.
perhaps, then I should have named it:
>And then nasu quit TYPE MOON
>Keripo ceased to be human to become an embodiment of whaling ideals. Even when he was young, he stopped to dream so Mobage Jews trained him to roll the gacha during his sleep (and he only got 3 hours of sleep). That's why the Redditors were obsessed with him because he was effectively the wielder of what they hoped to aspire to be.
>the one who wrote Garden of Avalon, Santa Alter events, and Saber Wars
>mad about more Seibas
Anon... He even insisted that Nero was a saberface because "without Saber, Fate doesn't exist."
I only need one but 2 apples later and still 0.
fucking desire sensor.
What is truly painful is when you have two or three accounts and you've got a ridiculous abundance on one account and jack shit on the other.
For example, my main needs bones. Drake needed them, Scathach needed them, and Pirate Sluts need them.
My alternate, meanwhile, has like 150 of them...
Yes and oh god F/GO artwork from him would rock
Sometimes. If you do not like waiting then consider throwing 10$ for someone to scan the shit you want
Protection the smiles of the best couple.
I feel like Ayako Kawasumi was surprised at Nasu being a male because the rest of the TM staff was joking about Nasu and Takeuchi being like an old married couple or something.
It's possible that Nasu is a transwoman. Some of his main characters have gender issues (Ryogi born with two souls, one male and one female, comes to mind). "He" wouldn't admit it.
Gudako: OK, Wyvern Extermination Shimmery Star Squad. Hassan will take the lead.
Hassan: Yes, ma'am!
Gudako: Watch over Jack. She doesn't have much combat experience y et.
Hassan: By your word!
Hassan: Don't forget your Craft Essence.
Hassan: It's all right to be afraid.
Jack: I'm not scared.
Hassan: Trust in our Master's commands. But above all, Assassins should never drop their guard.
Hassan: Wear this.
Hassan: Even without your fog, this should be useful for concealing your presence.
(Ignoring the team makeup)
Takeuchi is the one who saw Caster and Uryuu as a gay couple who should marry and live happily forever in their artistic ways. Nudge nudge.
Just because you have a 2D 'waifu' (who used to be a guy and identified as a guy and had a penis), it doesn't mean you like 3D Women real life. How old are they and they are still single in muh traditional Japanese society? There's the term beard for you.
He's not gay, just gay for nasu. Like when you do homo shit like share food with your best friend in the food court or sleep in same bed in the hotel you're staying at. Then people start to wonder.
>implying nasu wasn't the original saberface
>Nasu and Takeuchi shipping
When did /fgog/ become a den of fujoshi?
Takeuchi doesn't see Saber as a love interest, though. And as an artist, while I have a favorite design and I'm enamored with it like Takeuchi is with Saberfaces, this doesn't mean I'm sexually attracted to them. I find that thing cute and appealing.
Wasn't Takeuchi the one who got Nasu into reading and writing in the first place?
For that matter, wasn't founding a doujin circle and writing a VN and making an official company all Takeuchi's ideas as well?
Nasu's entire life path has basically been dictated by Takeuchi at every major turn.
>Shiki and Arturia are really representative of Nasu's gender identity issues
>the prevalence of homosexuality in Type-Moon is an indication that Nasu and Takeuchi are secret gay lovers
/fgog/ in full armchair psychologist/English major mode I see.
I don't know anon, but when I was in middle school and high school, I imagined shitty fanfic with Gary Stu self insert OP and edgy surrounded by women.
Nasu imagined a story of a shoujo heroine who summons King Arthur and is coveted by different heroes. While he wrote Mahoyo and KNK prototypes first, Fate was the first idea he started to develop and think about. And it wasn't until Takeuchi, much later, when he considered to genderswap it. His ideas, unfiltered by Takeuchi had a wish fulfillment for girls.
Which he wrote after he met Takeuchi. KNK heroine was also born female and male, you need to admit that was really unusual for its time.
It was Takeuchi who directed him to that market. But right now Fate onmipandering is the most profitable of his works, so they can freely make anything they want and everyone can fuck everyone freely.
>tfw at least a month left until Bryn
Wow cool! Another 5* Saberface! How creative and surprising!
Fuck this shit.
Oh norse gods.
I want her and I know I will never get her.
>was actually considering rolling for Tesla
Now I can finally get Siegfried
If Nasu was a girl Type-Moon's origin story becomes the most cliched Chinese cartoon plot ever.
>meet in middle school because Nasu forgot to bring an eraser
>stutters while asking to borrow one
>become best friends
>become interested in books because of Takeuchi
>become a writer at Takeuchi's encouragement
>write doujin novels with Takeuchi providing illustrations
>write a visual novel at Takeuchi's insistence
>and the rest is history
Greatest love story ever told.
The best assassin has yet to appear in the game though.
n-no materials? just apples and cubes?
Anime about Takeuchi has already been made
>assassin in the gacha
did we get to the point where is there more 5 stars than 1 and 2 stars?
Pre-reg was just a gimmick and time-limited is a gimmick too.
Everyone was desperate to the get the time limited servants but they'll keep appearing, DW are learning how to make money.
Wow. Boring. So boring. Even a saber lover like me cant get more bored than this. The drops wasn't even worth it. The only saving grace is they actually give free heroine X sometime near the end which they would never do. Ever.
Plus, when the hell would we ever end up fighting Okita? The only Saberfaces we fight regularly are the various Alters (including Jeanne, who did show up again eventually) and Nero.
ATK 500(2000) HP 0(0)
Power is every turn 5% up of its own treasure equipment (up to 40%) and own Saber 100% up the power of the attack in the Wars "Saber Wars" event Limited]
The news say that each Saber will give different bonuses to Altorium gain so I'm guessing that higher star servants will give higher bonuses. Okita would probs give more FP in that case.
All hail saberfaces.
May the haters keep crying bitch tears.
Im ready to farm and rush this shit.
Rejoice! Alter and Nero will drop like flies when 10 rolling tomorrow.
seems like mats will be needed.
the 10 ap drop gets you exp+ fous and event 5* CE like normal. also hero's proof
20 ap is saber,archer,lancer, assassin pieces and fangs +CE
40 ap is monuments plumes and scales +CE
the points give claws, hearts, refuse and a lore. gives CE exp, apples, quarts and stuff. of course also lily and event CE
