FGO Report vol. 177

Not even trying

I finished the challenge quest with the team above. Still took 12 turns but otherwise uneventful. Tamamo lasted a bit too long though when I wanted her to fall down in three turns.

I’ve also finished farming for the event so there’s nothing to do for a while. I did end up missed four missions last week though whoops. I finished everything today so I don’t repeat the stupid mistake 🙃

On other news, the second wave of welfare store is up and there’s Nobbu The Original this time around. Bought, upgraded, unlocked append skills, but not the skills because lol mats. The strengthens are pretty nice although I wish there are more for existing low rarity servants.

On gacha, I ended up rolling 11 for MHX and got MHXX 😐 Well she’s way more useful and at NP3 I’m not really complaining but in term of collection I’m still missing the original MHX (she’s useless in battle notwithstanding).

I currently have enough for a bit over 330 rolls. And now saving for another 330…

FGO Report vol. 176

I almost forgot about this 👀

I’m quite backlogged at the event and still slowly catching up. I did 11 rolls for Draco and Lady Avalon but no luck as usual. If anything I’ve been having some rather shit luck streak recently.

Arcueid sure is a bit cheating in term of lazy comp creation. With two Koyan and MLB Kaleid I can farm on almost anything. The damage would be even higher if I use black grail and Atlas mystic code but I still have one last mystic code to max so I’ll be using the lower damage comps for now.

FGO Report vol. 175


Dead week is dead. There sure are a lot of dead weeks nowadays. The three weeks event is fine but I sure wish they have something lined up right afterward instead of nothing.

Login bonus events don’t count.

The welfare servant store thing is pretty nice at least. I finally have Kintoki (Rider) in my main account. With 50% NP charge he’s very easy to use. Now I just need to gather enough upgrade materials to level up his skills.

A rerun would’ve been nice but considering the timing, coming next up will be most likely Golden Week event which is FGO Arcade collaboration. I’m not particularly interested in the upcoming main servant unless she’s got some powerful skill or NP. I’m pretty close to 300 rolls now 😴

FGO Report vol. 174

White Day event done. Is it even a white day event. Well it’s actually a CBC event.

Anyway, I only need to get the 3M points now. At least the relevant farming node also drops mats I do actually need so that’s nice.

On the challenge quest, it’s the Himiko Merlin Castoria team again. It took quite a while but nothing particularly interesting. There’s one annoyance of random 20% NP reduction at the start of turn though. I did end up swapping Merlin with support Castoria so all’s good but I probably didn’t need to do that had I actually pay attention.

AnimeJapan stream also happened few days ago and the main interesting thing was the new Class Score which will add class-wide buff. ATK up and NP gain up would be mostly welcome, I think. There’s too few details the moment though so it’s unclear how useful it’ll be.

There’s one other new thing though which is the ability to obtain previous welfare servants. In term of usefulness I mostly look forward to Rider Kintoki as he’s one of the best single target Riders in game. Otherwise this should finally allow me to obtain Santa Alter and Jailter for this account. Oh and the servant coins for existing servants are welcome too. And here’s hoping they’ll also get some strengthens.

On semi unrelated note, I currently have about 200 rolls. 300 would be the minimum but I’m hopeful on getting to 600 by the anniversary now.

FGO Report vol. 173

Who are youuuuuuu

I originally planned to actually read the entire Valentine servant scenes but as usual I ended up only watching a few. The Arcueid one was pretty fun at least.

On the other news, I rolled once for both Amakusa and Arjuna Alter banners and ended up with that Don Quixote above. I guess it’s better than mapo tofu? I didn’t expect to actually get anything though so I don’t have space chocolate to unlock their event. Maybe next year if I still play the game.

White Day event is coming up this Friday so it’s one dead week. Or two if counting the fact there isn’t much to farm in the event since last week. I’ve been farming for mana prism instead as I ran out of it getting the latest CE from Da Vinci. Like 100-ish low. It’s now back to about 1000 sso I should be fine for next month but I should stock up a bit more.

At 515 SQ, I’m a bit over halfway to 330 rolls (900 SQ). It should be doable although I don’t quite want to know how I’ll survive the upcoming summer and anniversary if I fail on Skadi.

FGO Report vol. 172

Valentine event done. Kind of. There are still hundreds of chocos to be given/received. The challenge quest was done with the team above except it started out with Morgan until she got some NP seal debuff.

As for farming the final node, it’s MHXA with Black Grail CE and Chen Gong with event CE. Originally Chen Gong would require BG as well but I’ve leveled him to 90 so it’s doable without. Castoria still had to do her NP first though otherwise it’s not enough.

Unfortunately I ended up rolling 11 times for Bazett and got nothing 😀 that was dumb. Anniversary and summer are only 5-6 months away and I only have for around 160 rolls so far. I hope I’ll have at least 400 rolls by then.

FGO Report vol. 171

Apparently I finished LB7. As I went fuckall there wasn’t much difficult point. The most annoying one is definitely the final Tezcaltipoca fight especially the final gimmick. I did end up using two command spells as those are usable freely. I went with Ranmaru X for that one because I can. Or maybe because I don’t have any other useful Avenger.

On the banner side, I ended up doing 38 rolls total. 16 first was on Tlaloc – except I got Tezcatlipoca before her. And then 22 on Kukulcan hoping for another Tlaloc. I didn’t get another Tlaloc but Kukulcan somehow showed up. I’m not complaining although the usefulness may still need to be proven. Especially at just NP1.

Valentine event starts this Friday it seems? Which is a bit weird considering Valentine is on 14th…

At any rate I really need to not roll anymore until Skadi Summer rerun…

Oh and I also need to actually read the story 👀 I read the epilogue and the new prologue but it barely made sense to me lol.

Weekly FGO vol. 170

My fucking god I’ve had fucking enough of doors

More dead weeks! Apparently the dev couldn’t make it in time so they pushed the release date to still be counted as “last third of January” 🫤

Anyway, as mentioned above I’m still farming mostly doors. That I still have over 500M despite leveling a bunch of skills to 10 means I probably collected over 800M in total maybe? I also maxed the new year mystic code along the way.

Valentine is getting closer. At this rate there may be no new Valentine event this year? We’ll find out soon I guess…

Also next post will be in two weeks because holy shit there just isn’t anything recently. New events being three weeks isn’t helping either.

Weekly FGO vol. 169


Randomly new banner of someone who hasn’t even appeared. I did 11 rolls and got nothing useful. Yay.

On the other hand, it’s still QP farming week. I can still use even more QP… although I can use anything else to do. Next Wednesday should be finally the release of LB7 part 2. That said, unless it’s got raid of some sort it’ll be even more dead weeks…

Getting first address of specified IP and prefixlen in PHP

Weekly FGO vol. 167

More dead week 😴

I ended up doing 20 rolls for Dark Koyan and Fujino and ended up getting nothing. Business as usual but it means I’m 20 fewer tickets now 🥲

Let’s see if anything comes up next week.

At the current rate of updates I probably should switch to one per two weeks post…

Weekly FGO vol. 166

Apparently it’s new year.

Which means GSSR! Extra Quick! I considered Extra Buster 1 as well but in the end Koyan Dark isn’t all that important in term of support and getting Skadi Summer means I can save more SQ for whatever upcoming servants.

Unfortunately no Skadi Summer so I still have to roll for her later. I also hoped for anyone but Voyager since I’ve seen him enough times in other account but oh well. It’s kind of the worst possible outcome for me.

Better luck next GSSR, I guess.

On the other news, Kotomine-alike servant is finally implemented and… I don’t quite care about him. So that’s nice since I don’t have enough SQ for 330 rolls.

Unfortunately there’s nothing else new. There’s mention of LB7 part two coming up end of this month but nothing immediate. Let’s see if anything is announced on Wednesday.

Weekly FGO vol. 165

That was a long journey


…and that’s it. I don’t know if there will be raid or anything around the end but for the moment I’ll just do it slowly. Also I still haven’t caught up with the story since LB4 so I’m skipping the story. It’s also rather annoying reading and fighting at the same time anyway.

On the other news, lineup for GSSR has been announced. The lineup is mildly annoying this time around. Koyanskaya of Darkness and Skadi Summer are the two main I kind of want/need but the probability at just 20% and 16.67% respectively, it’ll probably be a miss. Also Skadi Summer will most likely see revival banner mid next year so there’s that.

If I want something that’ll surely be useful I’d just pull Berserker Area. At worst I’ll get Raikou which usefulness is a bit limited. Or Assassin Single Target – MHX isn’t all that useful but I kinda like her design and the other two I already have… or so I thought. I mixed up with NA account (RIP) about owning First Assassin. I guess no Assassin ST for me since he’s not all that useful especially at NP1.

In the end I’ll probably just go with Extra Buster 1 for Koyan Dark. Even if her banner is rerun this new year I won’t have enough SQ to roll for her safely and even if I don’t get her the rest are still pretty useful even Abigail Summer if only for eyecandy. The rest I already have but NP2+ of any of them should prove useful (except for Oberon maybe).

Weekly FGO vol. 164

Just a lot more embers

Done with the event. I didn’t expect to need to farm specifically for box tickets especially as that’s the one I stacked the CE for the most.

As for challenge quest, I felt like testing squirtoria so I used her and she did it in three turns as expected. I think it’s easier than Orion I used last time.

With everything cleared up, I’m back to farming embers so I can get Arc to 120 as soon as possible. I really should stop doing this level 120 thing.

On gacha rolls, I ended up doing 11 rolls for Saber. I got nothing of course. I shouldn’t have done that. At least I’m not rolling for Nero Bride this time 😇 She would be kind of useful but really I need to not waste any more SQ. It’ll probably take me until anniversary next year before I roll anything.

Weekly FGO vol. 163

Suddenly Christmas 2020 rerun. Well I guess it’s not quite dead weeks until LB7. I’m currently slowly farming until the final node is open. At only 20 boxes it’s not really all that useful. Being able to get 20 skill stones is still welcome but I definitely need way more than that.

On the other news, I did 6 rolls on Melusine banner and thankfully got her (to NP2). Interestingly it only took me 4 tickets on her banner last year, making it only costing me 10 rolls total to get her to NP2. This account sure is weird, when something comes up, it comes up a lot (MHXA NP4, Reines NP5, Bunnytoria NP6, Arcueid NP5); and when something doesn’t come up, it takes forever to even get to one. I sure wish the easy ones are the ones I want… which so far only Arcueid – the rest I don’t really care getting beyond NP1.

…I have a feeling I’ve written something like that before 🤔 I guess it still hasn’t changed.

At any rate, I really should start saving up for whatever coming up next. I need to save at least 330 rolls…

Weekly FGO vol. 162

Still a very long way to go

Dead week is dead. Nothing much to do apart of the recollection quests. I don’t think I’ll bother with super recollection quests this time. It’s mainly because it’s quite difficult. The first one is probably not that difficult but the other two are just plain annoying. Constant buff removal just isn’t fun to counter against. For Morgan fight I can probably do quad buff set method (buff main attacker on first turn, swap them out, and swap back in on final break bar) and pray it’s enough to get her down in single turn but yeah 🤷‍♀️ As for Oberon I don’t even.

The other problem is the reward just isn’t worth shit. And being time limited, I actually forgot to use the LB5 reward last time.

On the other news, I did 66 rolls total for Castoria and got jack shit. At least I did get some SR servants – Nitocris and Zenobia are now both NP3 – but no Castoria. I also got Kaleidoscope (the original) but I need Black Grail more.

There seems to be nothing until at least next week either? ?_? There sure are lots of dead weeks recently. I should probably get around reading the story but too lazy (also I have other things to read).

Weekly FGO vol. 161

Finished Tunguska (again) woo. I forgot how difficult the final battle was. Ended up with Ibuki for the first few waves (pretend Koyan above is her) and finished off by solo Tamamo.

Apart of that, the box event is over and I got 100 boxes total. Not quite enough but still helps. In fact I already spent the whole exp cards and QP for getting Arcueid to 120 but she’s still at 115.

Road to 7 LB6 should come up this week. Probably.

Also there’s that Castoria banner. I did 66 rolls and didn’t get her ;_; An NP2 would’ve been nice.

Weekly FGO vol. 160

More farming etc. Thankfully I’ve got my Morgan high enough NP and Arash high enough level that it’s possible to farm the last node with full drop bonus CE. Unfortunately it involves a lot of taps though. At any rate, I’m currently at 80 boxes. That’s still quite far away from 100. I still do have hundreds of silver apples though so I’ll see how far I can get this time around.

Meanwhile on challenge quest side, I’m still on lazy mode and holy crap just how far can I push this Morgan/Castoria/Merlin team.

On the sixth challenge, the one with Europe above, the strategy is simple as usual, Morgan deals the damage, Castoria and Merlin provides all the support needed. That said, Europe’s party charm skill is amazingly annoying. At one point she casted it twice in single turn. That should be illegal.

And finally the last one, Morgan v. Morgan. It’s the same team as above. The last few turns I focused mainly on just dealing damage and ended up with this weird situation. I went ahead because she’s got multiple guts and stuff so it actually ended up pretty easy with her solo instead.

The event is ending this week. And it’ll probably be finally time for Road to 7 LB6? Seems a bit late. Also I wonder what will happen to Christmas event this year. They mentioned there won’t be any more new servant this year but Chistmas usually has new servant. The timing also seems rather tight with LB7 release supposedly sometime next month. Not to mention box event usually part of the event would be kind of weird with another box event just ending right before it.

Weekly FGO vol. 159

Farming time woo ( ‘_’)>

Also challenge quests. That said, with some stupid team none of them is particularly difficult so far.

First one is single enemy with single target NP Lancer. With some luck and Gudaguda Kanban CE for handling enemy NPs, it didn’t take long. The rest include friend Skadi Summer, Skadi, and Koyanskaya of Light (for NP charge).

Second one I brought the wrong Merlin. Should’ve brought the original Merlin instead for the buster buff. There’s supposed to be Castoria on the third row but she’s gone on the last turn or something.

Third one was almost exactly same team but with correct Merlin. No special strategy here just the usual endurance party but with Morgan instead of Himiko.

And lastly (or at least up to today), yet another of the same but with Melusine instead of Morgan just because she charges NP better and there’s only one target. I didn’t clear up burn debuff before breaking his last bar and thus had to remove about 8 or so guts in the process…

…wait, that was the fifth one. Apparently I forgot to take screenshot of the fourth one. I think it was just Koyanskaya of Light, Arcueid, and Merlin. With my Arcueid being NP5 and all it was almost as easy as the first one.

Meanwhile on the farming side, first set’s 90++ was pretty nice and doable with Arcueid. But the second one is a bit annoying for my team. Also I prefer the drop from 90+ so I’m doing that one instead with Ortlinde Summer and double Castoria and Oberon.

Weekly FGO vol. 158

Unfortunately the box event didn’t start last week but instead there’s the pre-release event thing 😐

I did the minimum to complete the daily quests by finishing remaining open free quests. There are still quite a few of them. Even once I finish them there are still a bunch of main interludes still need to be completed. I’ll get to them eventually.

In the meantime I’ll be mostly doing the above so I can create the blue apples. Box event coming up next week and I can use a lot of skill stones. I hope I can open at least 200 boxes. Either that or they increase the reward.

On the other news, Morgan banner is up and I did 44 rolls but unfortunately got nothing of use. NP5 Morgan would’ve been useful (currently at NP3). I’ll try scraping whatever free SQ I can get but doubt it’ll mean much.

Weekly FGO vol. 157

Final farming team

I forgot to write this multiple times lol.

There just wasn’t anything happening last week. It was all just farming and I’ve cleared the shop.

The rumor says box event may be up next so I’m hoping for that and not going hard on current event farming. I can definitely use some skill stones. Or a lot of them, for all the classes.

There are some new banner reruns but I’m saving for, um, Skadi Summer, I guess, so I didn’t roll. I did exactly two rolls but only got junk as usual.

There are three new Advanced Quests up yesterday but I haven’t looked into it. The annoying part is of course none of the CE so far be limit broken. They’re taking a lot of space now…

Weekly FGO vol. 156

Done with the event. Or at least the story and challenge quest. I cleared the challenge quest using that no-fucks-given team above. It’s pretty much just letting Musashi do her NP while Castoria and Proto Merlin being meat shield. I don’t remember exactly how many turns but it was pretty short.

All that’s left for me is farming all the mats and event currencies. Oh and the quest which requires 500 quests completion.

On unrelated note, I forgot to use teapot and thus lost all of them. That sucked.

This event will still be going for two more weeks so there are still plenty of time to farm all the things. Especially void dusts.

Weekly FGO vol. 155

I ended up rolling for Koen Shaku except I only got that Kou Hiko above. And Tamamo OG for some reason. That was stupid. I should’ve saved some more. Or a lot more. At least I got to MLB the ☆5 event CE.

As for the event itself, it’s very not Halloween-y so far. The only hint of Halloween is the decorated hall and Eli. No battles are happening inside though and none of the enemies are pumpkin head or other Halloween themed. Oh well =/

The event itself isn’t all that difficult either. Makes one wonder why the requirement of LB5.

The new farming mechanism is mildly interesting though with guaranteed item after certain amount of quests. Thankfully one of the items is void dust which I’m severely lacking at the moment. I don’t know how much I’ll farm but considering QP and embers are also pretty generous here I think I’ll do quite a bit of farming. After the final node is available, of course.

Weekly FGO vol. 154

I tried using Sanzo for a bit but it needed quite a lot more care than I could care about. So it’s Tamamo time. In fact she did two of the recollection quests this time around. The class affinity just worked too well.

The Caenis one was done using Morgan/Castoria/Merlin. That one took 37 turns total. There weren’t any weird gimmick so it’s just spamming NP and keeping everyone alive.

I’ve also finished the advanced quests. Some are weirder than the other (the Wolf Game).

On the other news, Halloween is coming up next this week. I’m still trying to save SQ so I don’t think I’ll do any rolls here.

Also, bye NA ( ゚ ヮ゚)a I think I did well overall there. Especially on getting Okita to NP5 and a bunch of other NP2+ servants. Having two years foresight sure is useful.

Weekly FGO vol. 153

That was horrible


Road to 7, LB5 edition is here. The recollection quests are absurd as usual. The Corday one is especially annoying with her instant death NP. There’s certainly better method out there but I ended up using one command spell to get MHXA NP charged.

I don’t know if I’ll try them again as I’m currently busy spending all my teapots before they expire in two weeks. The other two were done using the usual Himiko team.

There are also new Advanced Quests. I haven’t looked at them at all…


Christmas rerun is here. Or its pre-release campaign. The actual event is next week. So I’ve been just farming QP.

I’ve got a few more urgent things recently so I may just drop NA sometime soon. It was an interesting experiment but Apple App Store limitation for installing it and inability to purchase SQ directly via Google Play reduced the fun factor quite a lot 🤷‍♀️

Weekly FGO vol. 152


Done with New Yamataikoku. Or at least the quests and stuff. All that remains is farming till drop.

The highest difficulty farming node this time is quite something. I can barely stably farm it with Morgan (NP3), Koyanskaya of Light x2, and Oberon. And the strategy varies based on first turn cards – in the worst case it may take at least three turns. The reward is pretty useful though. I need quite a lot of some of the mats (fangs, fluids, seeds, medals, and hearts).

The challenge quest, as usual as of recently, was done in lazy mode. It’s the usual Himiko, Castoria, and Merlin team. It’s kind of crazy how stable this team is. I did fuck up a bit at the end when aiming for damages to clear the last few bit of first bar. Thankfully the second bar is very easy to clear up. The fuckup was probably even helpful as the enemy steals def buff on bar break and there were none at the time.

As per recent trend, the event will still be up for quite some time. Don’t know how much apples I’ll use here but I still need to save some for actual box event. I need a lot of skill stones of all rarities and classes.


Also finished Yamataikoku here. I didn’t end up farming as much as I wanted partially because of the lack of skill animation speedup and partially the enemies are down quite a lot faster than I wanted. I guess NA is still alive and well.

Cleared the challenge quest with exact same team above lol. I wondered if the class disadvantage matters but it didn’t. Yay.

Unlike JP though there is nothing left to do on the event so I cleared Olympus. Also with the same team above for some of the more difficult quests. I finally cleared the Zeus quest with something other than solo Mash.

The event will be ended next week but there’s no hint of what will come up next. If following JP it would be Christmas rerun…

I still have no idea how the schedule will work out for the remaining of this year.

Weekly FGO vol. 151



New Yamataikoku event has started. It’s another one of those box-like event. The closest one I can think of is the Super Bunyan and last year’s summer. The mixture requirement is a bit annoying though. I just hope using them up all won’t involve converting one thing into another.

The story is still ongoing and the presumably best farming node hasn’t appeared so I’m kind of waiting for that. I can use a lot of fangs and medals.

I haven’t tried myself but from what I gather Iyo doesn’t quite refund NP enough for looping. Similar to Ranmaru X maybe?

There isn’t anything particularly interesting banner-wise. I’ve been doing some paid rolls but nothing useful came up so far.


I got the last copy of Okita! Yay. Only took my whole SQ and tickets.

I also got Himiko in 35 rolls. I got her before getting Okita above because getting one of her is quite a bit more important than NP5 Okita.

The raid has started and two of the Nobbu are down. I’ve been slowly going through it with occasional apples but the lack of skill speed up is still a drag after all. I mainly aim to farm enough for all the event currencies.

On another note, during my rolls above for Okita above, at one point I decided I may need to get some additional SQ. So I went through my usual steps of moving the account to Android phone and buy it off Google Play Store. And it didn’t work. I then remembered about buying FGO from wrong region being disabled a few weeks ago. Apparently that applies to me as well so I guess that’s the end of this account’s paid SQ journey. Or maybe the whole account itself because using it on iOS isn’t exactly straightforward due to requiring different Apple ID and all.

I’ll probably continue playing this until I get a different phone or something.

Weekly FGO vol. 150


New event is only coming this Wednesday so it’s been just even more farming these last few days. Especially skill stones since I just remembered I ran out of them for some classes (mainly Archer and Caster). I don’t think I’ll get enough of them from just natural AP though.

I did 22 rolls on Amakusa banner hoping for his CE – the one which raises two NP OC levels three times. Unfortunately there’s no such luck. I’ve also been doing paid rolls due to all the extras I got when rolling for Lady Avalon but the only notable result was a single Asvatthaman. An Arjuna Alter would’ve been nice.


It’s farming week here as well and with the last few Hunting Quests being stuff I already have over hundreds of it was just QP and embers and Charlotte.

On the other note, as seen above, I ended up rolling for Okita. I got two of her in 132 rolls. Combined with Illya roll last week I ended up spending over 200 rolls worth of SQ and only have a bit over 100 rolls remaining. I hope those will be enough for Himiko. And I don’t know what will happen next year ( ゚ ヮ゚)a

Yamataikoku here will start on Wednesday which interestingly is the same day as JP’s new Yamataikoku event. The main attraction for this one is of course rolling FP for CE exp cards. With Coin System coming early, it will also double as collecting all the coins. May main concern is of course I don’t have remotely enough space to do it without quckly. At 3.2M FP it’ll take quite a while to use them all.

Weekly FGO vol. 149

Everyone’s beloved Lancer 😘


…what’s in here again 🤔

There’s the 26M DL campaign. 15 tickets bonus is welcome. Can use a lot more lores though. And golden fous.

The updated login bonus is a bit too little of an update but at least it’s something. A bit better than the previous ⭐4 embers.

The new ⭐5 embers in Da Vinci is also welcome. It’s worth the cost now… as long there’s extra mana prism. I don’t know if there’s good justification for the 15 mana prism ⭐4 embers though. Maybe for someone that really has just started? Once one is able to farm the highest diff embers there just isn’t much point collecting the lower rarity ones.

New Advanced Quests have been added. The chain one is mildly amusing with that linked enemies gimmick. It took me a few turns until I realize how to differentiate between servants I have to get rid of and I have to keep alive. I used Castoria, Astraea, and Taisai Seikun.

There isn’t anything particularly special about the Ibaraki Douji one. It’s just defeat the mobs and then the boss while she gets to NP every other turns. It might’ve been a bit easier if I used taunts. But instead I had the same team above except with MHXA Idol instead of Taisai.

Lastly the stake quest. It’s been a while since the last 6 waves quest iirc. I used Arcueid just because it seemed fun. And also Asclepius and Castoria. Nothing special here although I wonder if they actually had Arc in mind with the Avenger enemies.

No info on next event yet so it’ll be another farming week. Both QP and embers… (mainly embers since it’s half AP and I still need a lot for Arc).


Scatfest! And as I remembered the Grail Front AI was hilariously bad. I don’t know what logic they run on as it just seems bizarre with enemy master not running away enough and the servants not hitting master when given chance. The system also pushes for finishing enemy master as soon as possible. They fixed it way later by adding item and challenge nodes. But that’s still a few months away and I think there will be at least one more Grail Front with this stupid arrangement.

Without the skill speed up update it gets pretty annoying farming in NA but I’m still hoping for at least 100 boxes. I’m currently still at 72 boxes so I don’t know if I can actually reach that with 16 hours remaining.

I also did Illya banner and got two of her… ‘_’)a I hope I didn’t mess my chance next year too much. It took me 110 rolls total. I also got two Miyu along the way (now NP3).

There’s also that Fionn thing above. Scath would’ve been nice but I need to save my SQ for next year. Or Himiko at next event. I hope that one won’t take too many rolls. Himiko, combined with Castoria, is kind of crucial for some challenge quests.

That said, the Himiko event itself is still at least one week away with Hunting Quest in between.

Okita banner… I’ll do like 11 rolls maybe. She’ll be back next year anyway.
