How much you have stocked up?
Bros I wanna fuck Lancelot
>>240695465Eeeh. I really hate her sword inflatable. it looks tacky
>>240695424i'm gonna marry her so no one can steal her!
>>240695196I got Nito last night while rolling for Hassan.>1-in-5 death rate with her first skill at Lv9I am very disappointed.
But seriously where the fuck are our animations updates

>>240695680>the state of hundred face pornagraphy
gudaguda event where you help nobu bomb pearl harbor when
>>240695679i don't fucking understand why the fuck they just can't fucking add all animation updates at once, why the fuck we have to wait years as jp did, if it's already updated just fucking add it
>>240695838That's the Guda Guda 3 with 1942 year date
>>240695663>he doesn't know
>>240695735>Saving SQ for Exp cards
>>240695864>>240695679There was a major update in the middle of EoR the reworked the sprite engine or something, We'll probably get a batch animation update when we hit that... Source: Mash's boobs
Farm non-existent pages with me.
>>240695864Because animation updates are considered "content" and they're withholding them to pad out EoR. The update for Orion, for example, is half the reason they can get away with re-running a garbage event like Dangofes.You will get them at exactly the same date they were released in JP. Please look forward to it.
Bros it's going to be my FGO anniversary soon. I enjoyed this year a lot and I don't think I'll stop playing during this upcoming veteran year. Thank you for keeping me company, I honesty had fun with you faggots.
>Saitom did an Astolfo image
>>240695424>claim Fuck off and die
>>240696174It was rigth when The first EoR came outSo if what the jopefags have been saying about new animations not working with our current engine we should get all the new animation updates in februaryBut I highly doubt it
>>240696174I hate how ugly my kouhai is

Just fucking kill me already
>>240695838Saber Wars Episode II: The Battle for Nobbu
Guys, i know this sounds pretty fucking vanilla and pathetic, but at to this point, my life and existence was just miserable( it still is ) but i'm glad that i got into this game and community, which actually saved me and added more joy to my life. It's been a year since i joined fgo community, and it was like a turning point to me. Before that i was never excited about anything. Now the only thing i'm excited about is upcoming events. I have 6 failed exams at uni, and might get kicked out, but i don't really care about it, going to uni started all this bullshit and ruined my life. Getting in this community more or less cured my depression, and i just want to say it was fun, and i'm looking forward to next year, and year after that. Thank you, /fgoalter/.
>>240696038>Saving for a unpopular whore that no one likes
>>240695735I started saving a week ago for her. Pretty confident I'll get her. Though it's gonna be the longest I'll save for a servant so it's gonna be soul-crushing if I fail.

My AAA vanguard team #1 will consist of NP5 King Arthur [male] and his advisor, Merlin [already NP5].Please help me choose a suitable female servant to complement these two powerful men, /alter/.I completely trust and value your judgement, but I request a SSR servant recommendation.>Any variation of Arturia “Lucina, The Imposter” Pendragon recommendations will not be accepted.I have no one on my friends list, but I will add you and you’re free to use my NP5 Lv. 100 Arthur and Merlin depending on your helpful advice.

>>240702793>post id, or u gay niggayou could post yours and i can add you; i'm at 69/70 right now
>>240702518Is LZO his best CE? I don't see people using him for Crit/NP builds so I'm guessing Buster up is the main thing I should focus for him. Is the cooldown on PotF low enough for increased HP recovery meme CE's?
>>240700038I bet mine's pretty gay
>>240702613>Having a generic Jack in his support Doing it wrong.
>>240702382NonononoI don't know whats happening on this image but I won't allow my dick to to take control like thisStay down you motherfucker I'm not that depraved
>>240702793What's the metric here
>>240702935>using soulless SSRs at allDoing it wrong.
>>240702695is this some knockoff Hearthtone or what
>>240700672Fuck off Huntan
>>240702895If you want to clear the fight legit you might need to wait for a few more events to pass by, to bond your dudes and max their skills.However if you're willing to cheese the fight you can frontline three servants with Guts, equip the Atlas Academy MC, and grab a support Herc with Bond CE.
>>240702889We'll never have collabs because any franchise that wants to do collabs with THE Fgo has to pay exhorbitants amount of money. (In the order of billions of yen)
>>240703087OH NO NO NO
>>240703037The current 4* Ass suck though
>>240702935Grailed Jack actually

Doing interludes fucking hurts bros, why couldn't (We) save him
>>240703189Is this the best CE ever for Gil if MLB?
>>240700038So it goes.
>>240703345Grailed 1-2 shitters, especially the assassins.
>>240703506Hotdog is only better than idols when mlb and leveled significantly so yeah
>>240703509No, no, I just want to dick her
>>240703418No worries.You've missed the farmable raid quests, and we aren't getting the first EoR story expansion until I think March, so you've got a while to prepare.

>>240703368sent, just login daily and i shouldn't remove you
>>240703536Because it saved (YOU)
>>240703536I just unlocked two interludes and i'm afraid to do them.
>>240697108How about other knights of the round table for aesthetic purposes. Tristin or Lancelot could be cool. Tristin in the back with merlin providing covering fire.
>>240703403His NP gen is ridiculous you put that on him and he's going to NP every other turn.
>>240703558there are other competitors I'd argue are equally as good or slightly better, such as First Sunrise, Partake with the King, and of course Victor of the Moon
>>240703558>>240703558This is arguably better.https://fategrandorder.fandom.com/wiki/Gilgamesh_in_NY
>>240703834now that's just the right level of gay
>use double merlin + quetz for shits while farming>double Hero Creation + Lucha Libre on final wave>NP for 150k>crit afterwards for something over 400k
Bros I heard that Gil's personality was based on APEX Alter.Is this true?
>>240703681i play everyday. thanks anon
>>240703936Her NP damage is almost irrelevantKind of makes me regret getting her to NP2, but then again I was rolling for Gorgon
>>240703929its too far imo
When's my next chance to farm QP
>>240703834I always wondered if a term like gay pregnant has a direct translation in Japanese or if this is translators doing retarded shit
>448/206Bros... all the images...
>>240704267What's an image limit
>>240704267I want an anime with Okita, just to see her die
>Quetz has 50% debuff resistIs that the highest in the game? Since i have a MLB Primeval Curse, I can get her all the way up to 80% resist, but I was wondering if there was any servant with a higher natural base than her.
>>240704304Oh no....the JetCHADs are here....
>>240703807the argument against this is that there are so few battles that last long enough for Gil to actually use more than a single EA and utilize the increased NP gain to pump out more than one NP that you're better off just using a starting NP charge CE anyways
>>240704304>>240704317>>240702502I fucking love dead weeks
>>240704165i assume it would be something very close ot it seeing as how it pops up alot
>>240704405I think King Hassan actually
>>240700038Ok>>240703350Add me Waverbro
>>240704267Nothing personal, sis.
>>240704304That's old, this is how it ends.
>>240704598>not leaving Berserker blank until ChachaCome on bro.
>>240704267We have to start petitioning the mods for a higher image cap. There is no stopping the people who post needless images itt.
>>240704405There's Arjuna, with debuff immunity for 5/6 turns, off the top of my head. But definitely one of the highest.
>>240704267>>240704604both of these servants are soulless so it doesn't make sense for you to fight.
>>240704705Leave it to me bro , I'll go make the QA thread
>>240704685Soon friend... soon
>>240704483That's only AGANIST charm and deathHe has 100% debuff resist if you equip him his bond CE
>>240704685Well I mean, you get a copy of Kiyohime when you beat Orleans, so its a psudo-welfare Servant. But she does need to be replaced once Chacha comes out.
Why the fuck is the 5ap quest the most efficent for gear jesus christ.
>>240704840Yes got a free (you)
>>240704791Could she take TWO in the ass at the same time?
>>240704827What is this Clae
>>240704705I know the solution, we just need to make 5 threads at the same time and fill up the catalog with /alter/ threadsNo one's ever thought of that before now have they
>>240704949Just go to Chicago bro
when is God's next big appearance?
>>240705010that's just crazy enough to workmaybe we should just make new threads the second they hit image cap

bros, any one have the padoru zabaniya pic??
>>240706173look it up yourself you lazy cunt
>>240706130You'd be amazed at the sort of autism that game both permits and encourages.
>>240706194Roll Kiara.No more threats in this universe.
>>240705823>>240706017not sure if i actually will. gonna be low on grails after mama lancer and i sorta want to get rama grailed as wellaaaaa

>>240706406Dont call me a cunt sis.

>>240706358how did rider win this when cursed arm hassan had class advantage???
>>240706173Arash, Ishtar, Gilgamesh.But the event CE doesn't provide starting NP so I hope you've got all these and a Waver.
>>240705981I've got a favorite servant that I managed to acquire on the day of their release, 10/10/10 and level them to 100 within the very first hour they were available but she's only sitting at NP3 and I'm pondering whether or not I should go absolutely fucking ham in getting her to NP5 the next chance I getI've got a little under 200 rolls saved up, but I also want to get both Moriarty and Holmes and I simply do not have enough money in my budget to spend another dime on FGO anytime in the near future. Do you have any input for me? I've been turning this over and over in my head for a couple months now and I've yet to reach a satisfying answer for myself
>>240706618apparently he made it in survival (no cheats) but people can say whatever they want on the internet so who knows
>>240706618no no, the rider is the minecraft map
>>2407066803*>2* And she was NP5+max fou'd
>>240706503Secondary hereHow strong is Kiara? Anons yesterday talked about how even grands can't do shit to her if she goes beast mode
Is there anything worse than gameplaygrailers?
>>240706735My account was made for this, NP2 Gil and NP3 IshtarPrepare yourself Christmas 2019
>>240706680How was Kerry able to kill all those Casters?
>>240706735arash, ishtar, raikou is gonna be my goto.just have to crit the last thing down i guess
>>240706607>TFW the next beast is a Rod
>>240706680Because Hassan had just been summoned, whereas Medusa was outright fully grailed and max bonded.
>>240706735I got everyone but Isthar, so I am pretty much set.
>>240706832There's nothing wrong with using spare grails for gameplay if your wife is already level 100.
>>240706680Class advantage is the cancer of this game.There was never any implied class advantage in any other installment.
>>240706739who is it?and np5 isn't that big of a upgrade usually
>motherfuckers put Illiya second rateup before merlin>now she is only will be available in paid gachaFucking jews.
>>240706735you're going to need like np4 gil for that last wave jfc
>>240707056unfortunate for you
>>240706739If she's really your favorite then I don't think you'd regret going all out for her even if you want to get someone else. I guess really it depends how badly you want holmes and moriarty, but I'm basically in the same boat with Okita at NP2 and I want a few servants this year but I'm going to spend everything I have on her during gudaguda rerun anyway
>>240707056There's the Prisma movie rateup.
>>240706884>implying lost trees aren't massive rods that are a part of an even more massive tree
>>240707056Good thing I got her on Thanksgiving on 30 quartz. Kuro was feeling lonely
>>240707015Sabers have an inherent class advantage against Casters in the form of magic resistance.
>>240707056Good job being a retard who doesn't prioritize their favourites over world's most common SSR
>>240706680class advantage in the source material is reversedassassins normally stomp casters because they're able to nullify their Territory Creation ability and don't give enemy casters a chance to fight back by taking them by surprisecasters do great against riders because the strength of the rider class is their versatility and mobility, which is trumped by the caster class's defensive capabilities and how easily they can hunker down force the enemy servant to fight on their own termsriders smash assassins because they can outmaneuver them and are difficult to assassinate purely by virtue of their combat ability. if you take a look through many riders skills, a lot of them were heroes of the military and pack some kind of Charisma, meaning they're always accompanied by some kind of familiar to help with detection the knight classes are even more obvious
Finally got a job today bros
>>240707327You can't really generalize though because every servant of every class is different except Assassin's
>>240707141>>240707317I just want np2I could not justify np2 before merlin>>240707187Prease undastahnd
Roll for me.
>>240707402Time to buy quartz to celebrate
>>240707056I'm going to get her at NP4 for the Prisma Movie!
>>240707327The knight class triangle is perfect in reality though, if you take Lancer to actually mean real Lancers like Artoria Lancer.Archers > Footsoldiers masses > Horseback Lancers > Archers
Why is this little shota so charismatic?
>>240707468What are you gonna do for me?
>>240706826You know that "They can't beat the dick, man. Can't beat the dick." meme?She beat the dick.
>>240707462>I could not justify np2 before merlinYou could if you realized a support Merlin will literally always be available and that Merlin will have another rateup this year.
>>240707473If you mean King Hassan then that's inaccurate cause he's a grand and can't be summoned
>>240707561Eat your junk food.
>>240707513Then you got fools like Irish Heracles in which classes don't mean anything.
>>240706194Satan is the Alien God.
>>240706735oh F U C K
>>240707468I want her, but my funds are too tight. She might have had a higher priority for me if one of her sprites had a different hairstyle instead of the standard Seiba one.

>>240707030da Vinci-chanIt's tricky because Uomo Universale is one of the outliers where both NP level and overcharge rank both directly contribute to the NP damage. At NP3 her NP gauge is capped at 200%>>240707145Maybe. The biggest hangup I see is whether or not I can feasibly get Holmes. Worst comes to worst I'll skip Moriarty, but I'd really rather not, and what's the fun of having one in my Chaldea but not the other?

>>240709337Why is there no sound room/sound test option? It would be neat to listen to alot of the music in the game.
>>240710081you're not a bro Tiamat, you're a mother!
>>240710032Just get the whale diet anon, you only drink water and eat steamed rice. Then you use all your money for quartz.
>>240703662mephitopheles is actually the most hated caster
>>240710242Don't carbs make you more of a fatass than fat though?
>>240710081Shut the fuck up autist, bone farming isn't that bad
>>240710212You have to work for it bitchhttps://fategrandorder.fandom.com/wiki/Sound_Player
Do the Rate Ups in NA follow the order they were done in JP? What is after Hassan?
>>240705678Why is she a rider though
>>240710212But why? You can probably find it all on YouTube
>>240710367No, calories make you fat.
>>240710058you'll never manually charge her over 200% anywayand its not capped when its behind other nps or using ce/Edison
>>240710242I'm currently on welfare, and cannot whale at all outside the paid gatchas, so I'd rather find a career to buy good healthy food and whale hard then, than subsist on carbs and spend my pittance on paid quartz (which is grotesquely expensive for how little you get).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xj9NwWIbiTYSemiramis animations are pretty cool, I'll roll for her to stop being a soulless Jack.
>>240709891>Teslaoh thank jesus, that bond 10 motherfucker will finally get out of the Second Archive again
>>240710484Generally, though sometimes there have been cases where rateups have been skipped or switched. Like the curry bros never got their second rateup.
>>2407096465/10. 5 for just serenity. Would be a 10 with Taiga, which will really be this year summer servant.
>>240710054If that Gil is NP1 you're better of taking Kuro.
>>240710489Because she drives the Shadow Border.
>>240708491Omg...another saberface. Rly??? Heroine XX...Alter???? My toes are laughing. XDDDD What the heck is she going to wield??
>>240710367The fiber in the rice makes you feel full and absorb less fat.
>>240709646Nah.>5 stars: Saber Lily, Kiara>4 stars: Medea, Anastasia, Consort Yu, Shiten, Xuanzang, Medusa>Welfare: Saber Merlin>Male costumes: Every KOTR, Arthur, Ozy and Okada
>sq prize changed to 10cents per sqWhat changes?
WHERE ARE THE FUCKING CLAWSI've been running des moines for 3 days and have gotten a singular drop
>>240710075A little subdued for my tastes. Kind of cute, though.
>>240710705Rates drop from .7% to .007% for a 5* servant
>>240710705The price per roll become 30SQ/300SQ for a ten roll.
>>240710582>Like the curry bros never got their second rateup.Considering how much they like to spook people, it's probably for the best.
>>240710705The cost of a 10x roll balloons to 300 quartz.
>>240710212Ok so I thought I was just retarded and couldn't find it but looks like it gets added later. Finally a use for all my pieces/monuments.>>240710516I can but for some reason I really like sound test/sound rooms when they're in the game. I once booted up Kirby 64 just to listen to the music cause its pretty comfy.
>>240703310https://rule34.paheal.net/post/view/2282483Boorushitters (specially danbooru) are lazy and elitist as fuck. There are so much content that remain unposted or get deleted because the lack of approval of some faggots.
>>240710851>>240710705Also that I can farm the fuck out of events because an AP refill becomes 10 cents instead of a dollar.
>>240710705Nip whales riot. Several DW staff members go missing, never to be seen again. Nasu's identity is revealed by an infuriated contact of his/her's and then also goes missing without a trace for 17 years until the corpse is found in the celieng insulation of an abandoned apartment conplex.
>>240710930Me on the back
>>240710539in those cases you can use a command seal to increase the charge by 100%I remember seeing a lvl100 Arash posted here that OHKO Goeita with a 500% overcharged STELLA thanks to some clever command seal uses and a prim and proper setup. shit like that turns me on
So is Merlin/Jalter/Merlin the strongest team possible in the current meta?
>>240710930>boorushitters>specifically danbooruWait, is there actually shit going down with boorus? I just thought people uploaded shit there and it was done.
>>240711123>corpse is found in the celieng insulation of an abandoned apartment conplexTo be honest, I think Nasu would prefer to go out this way. Would spark all kinds of weird urban legends.
>>240709646You forgot Cleo, they already gave her a swimsuit ce.
>>240711375Danbooru is pretty puritan, you never see hardcore content on there anymore, but that's not unexpected for a site that limits you to two-tags only and restricts loli to members.
Thread so dead that no one is here to hear me say I like Jets and Gil both
>>240711375Boorus despite being irrelevant since 2009 are still festering shitholes with weaboo mods stirring up drama amongst themselves banning loli and ss and enforcing arbitrary shit like romanizing names a certain way so you can't fucking search a character's name. There is literally no reason to go there, ever. Saucenao searches pixiv these days ffs. Even if the panda dies tomorrow I will still never go on a booru.
>>240711375>he's not a SankakuCHAD
>>240710058>Worst comes to worst I'll skip MoriartyProbably for the best. He loses his based NP line once his true name is revealed. Plus there aren't enough evil-aligned characters to take advantage of his buffs.
wellits over /fgo/i picked up every last SQ in the game currently, used them all and no grampsmy last 3 SQ gave me a 3* CEshit...
>>240711508I don't think they would give a limited 5* a swimsuit version
>>240711829I just get my shit straight from pixiv
Which servant's asshole would you sniff?
At this point I just want content, I don't even care if it's a rerun.
reminder that summer servants is just a joke and not canon.
>>240711720>tfw go to danbooru to search for Rin images>"Toosaka_Rin"Yeah they're fucking retarded
>>240711881I WANT TO BELIEVE
>>240711956Good, because it will be
>>240712068WELL WHERE IS IT MOTHERFUCKER
>>240712106This Thursday, thank me later
>>240711867it's time bro, go beyond your limitsit's time to use 'THAT'
>>240711954Okita after I finish smelling her thighs.
>>240711881Swimsuit Scat is already in NA you fucking imbecile
>>240711954Reminder servants don't poop.
reminder that servants don't pregnant.
>>240711956>Asanuma-sama, it's me Albert. Yes, I'm calling to confirm the content starving experiment is working as intended. We should be able to run the entire rerun year without any resistance. I will keep you up to date with any changes.
>>240711881Literally all the summer welfares have been limited 5*, you fucking ape
>>240711881Every single summer welfare has been based off a limited 5* you retard
>>240712604>>240712559>>240712264>>240712135>>240712042>>240711997I meant they wouldn't make Cleo a summer five star too geez , I guess she could be a 4* or a welfare
