    Uhm... Don’t think its fair if I answer as I have 24 SSRs. Although if there is a thing I consider that I am missing its probably Ozy, since we don’t have a good ST 5* rider yet (and I only have drake as 5* in the rider class).

    Although I really wish I could get my hands on fox waifu who always eludes me.

    In all honesty the only thing I am aiming for right now is Merlin. Anything else is of secondary concern, hence I am spending SQ whenever I have 3 of them.

    Other things I may be interested in are Serenity, Musashi, Ishtar and maybe Okita Alter, but she is still a very long way off.

    Taking stock, I have Okita, Robin/Euryale, Cu, Ushiwakamaru, Shiki, Heracles for ST and Emiya, Karna, Iskandar, Tama cat for AOE. Busy raising all the usual bronzes for epic value. I guess my weakness would be archers, though haven't really suffered from all the willing rent-boys Gil. I've Jeanne and D'eon so a pretty good lineup for stall/protective combos.

    Units I'm looking forward to are Penthesilia, Gorgon, Ishtar, Gramps, and possibly Nitocris, Moriarty, Sherlock. But I don't really pull on gameplay, so this is not necessarily to fill any holes (which puts me at a bind vis a vis summer units... dislike the concept but hear they're quite good?). I'll just make do with substitutes where I need to.

    Unsure where Atalanta fits, haha. Haven't really used her or Marie. Haven't really used pure crit teams at all.

    Edit: or an AoE saber.

    I'm lacking a ST besides herc. Loaded with AOE. I pulled a Jeanne last week which is good for a stall team. This event was perfect for her skills btw. (60 hearts!)

    Not sure who I'm saving for quartz wise. Maybe summer event? I do want Musashi but she comes right after Merlin smh.

    I just pulled a nightingale too. Is she any good? Support berserker seems odd.

    Nightingale has a very odd niche. She heals a ton and definitely has some nice abilities, but even a 15k health pool goes down VERY fast as a beserker, especially with a few lucky crits. Still, if you need a bit of healing, she is pretty nice and doesn't have terrible NP gain.

    I'm definitely lacking in ST servants. Seems the Gacha insists on giving me either support servants ala Fox Waifu, or AoE servants like Arturia / Arjuna etc. My only decent STs right now are Brynhild and Jeanne Alter. Hoping to roll for Merlin when Camelot rolls round so I can use people's ST servants rather than relying on Jeanne for damage.

    You may get more FP putting it on your Mordred when people realize Naraka is the most efficient farming zone.

    Good point. I swapped it to mordred. Also have MLB nightingale CE and MLB Talisman on waver and jack, respectively.

    Tbh after emptying the entire shop, I have to say I really liked this event. The general consensus is that this isn’t a well liked event, but personally I loved that this event has very high drop rates on almost everything.

    Ok so I just got Martha and Rama in an x10 roll. Should I get the free Martha to upgrade her noble or should I pick someone else from there and is Rama an good other then on demons?

    Martha NP is shit. That's not her main function, just a bonus. She's a debuff cleaner and a support rider. And Rama is pretty good, he's like a LAlter but Saber - totally focused on max damage via buster critting.

    As pretty as Rama is, he's a guy.

    Lol, I knew that, put there by mistaken. I have an Indian friend who plays it and he goes apoplectic everytime someone mentions Rama's a trap. He denies, but then gives up and curses FGO for not making him like Arjuna or Karna. It's a very amusing if repetitive cycle.

    Rama excels against magical enemies, not a lot of servants with that quality, but a ton of bosses. He was actually great for the Rashomon event. Other than that, he's just your basic Buster Crit servant. There's a few good analysis vids of him on Youtube.

    No Shishou. Again.

    Which do you guys think would be better, get the free Emiya (he'd be NP1) or get Herk again for NP3?

    I would probably go with Emiya. I don't think there's a big difference between Np2 and 3 Herc.

    I had the same tough decision. Eventually went with Emiya in the end simply because he shows up as a bonus serv in a fuck ton of events.

    No Scat, but I did get a K-scope, and Astolfo. I spent 150 quartz trying to get Astolfo during his rate up banner, so having him finally appear made up for the pain of not rolling shishou.

    NP1-2 Herk is great, but NP3 doesn't give that much of a boost. Only worth it if you're aiming for NP5. Also, EMYIA not only is the servant with most bonus for events in the game he also becomes the best 4* Archer in the game later on due to his Strengthening quests (Kuro is a ST version of him, who is better is up to debate, but since I Ain't Using Pedobait)

    Onigashima starting in 5 days. I know they're trying to steadily catch us up to the other servers, but lord jesus I need a break.

    Bought a copy of Personal Training for lore. I understand if we run the 2016 events thru the rest of the year, we'll hit 7k more MP plus lotteries. WIth 6.8k in the bank still, easily enough to MLB Lessons + Lunchtime. Curious if anyone thinks we'll see more than that?

    The 2016 schedule: Onigashima, Anniversary, Summer 1 & 2, Prisma Causeway, Nero Redux, Halloween, Xmas + Xmas rerun.
