Arknights threadoffer everything to W
But I have W already, can we get a casual Shaw skin instead?
>>292892https://youtu.be/oSqKVjVuW1Iyou already have a ghostbuster skin though
>>292900But that's still a work outfit! I want something cute, like a sun dress.Or even better, a sun dress skin for EVERYONE.
>>292885>200 rolls>No wIm literally crying
>>292914100 more and you can just buy her
>got W>was Aak'd along the wayI won at a terrible cost
>>292903Only if the outfit gives menthako more fuel
>>292934I think any casual outfit would give him more fuel for Shaw feet. Honestly the dude's been keeping at it with art for her longer than I've expected.
since I pulled W and weedy already I have some stuff left over is swire good
>>292941A at best 36% atk buff for melee ops surrounding her for 30s with a 45 sp cost on a on hit generation.Not really.
>tfw got 3 W and 1 Weedy and another 6* I didn't have>free roll today was another WeedyI knew I should have waited until the last day to roll
>>292941Swire's commonly regarded as one of the worst 5*s because she's part of a shit archetype (Support Guard, which consists of her and Dobermann right now although I'm not sure if Whislash ended up being good).She has a good base skill though, for the control center.
>>293048Whislash without skill active makes Blaze go from 1.2 atk time to 1.1~ attack time and with s1 active (3x boost) it goes to 0.96 attack time.So a 8%~ dps increase from having Whislash and a 24%~ dps increase from base with skill but only 14%~ from just Whislash being out.Also get a 42% def increase from the skill.It's fine I guess, but only works on 3 block units which limits your choice unless you use 2 block and meme with Nian's S3 to get the full boost and I do feel there's better choices for buffing/debuffing unless the decently fast cycle is what you are after.
W is not even that good
>>292926With what money? idiot.
>>293133I like her crazy bitch personality and fun gameplay. Literally a lot of newer units have some fun dumb gimmick.
>>293133fun gimmicks > meta
*makes the game too easy in your path*
Damn, Weedy literally just outclasses Shaw in every way.
You did get them all, right?
>>293133True, Weedy was the true objective for this banner. Still, W is fun to use and what else are you gonna do but collect cute girls?
>>293133She is limited though and could end up being good
>>293204I need 1 more W for max pot FML
>>293201Weedy doesn't have a tail that I want to bury my face in so she loses in one spot at least.>>293204I haven't gotten Weedy yet which is a bit sad, but I wasn't banking on having her either so.
>>293215Jesus, how much money did you sink into the game?
>>293201Skill have long cooldown
>>293226Bought the starter hh,monthly, and doc's choice. Had like 230 rolls saved up before anniv.
>>292885>>292914Got her in a first free daily pull.
>>293311I hate all of you. I couldn't contain myself and got Suzuran on release months ago. I will never save 300 its gay
When W/Weedy was first announced on CN almost a year ago, I looked up all upcoming banners and operators and planned my rolls for an entire year. Now I don't know what is coming up and the resource I used for planning hasn't been updated since then. I have no idea what good operators are coming in 2021 or how to budget my rolls. Any suggestions for a resource with banner/event dates and operator info other than the shitty Gamepress and Aceship.
>>293204I got weedy and elysium, but no W. Not bad for just free rolls. Will I ever get a chance at a Blaze banner or Elyfalla banner in the future?
>>293354Why didn't you buy Ejya when she was in the shop?
>>293351thorns is probably next, hes goodnext is surtr and shes literally the most broken op in the whole game
>>293351Here's a quick look at some operators that we're getting sooner or later.Nobody can say for certain when a banner will appear - the wikis guesses are as good as anyone else's.
Can they cool it with the music being pretty fucking awesome?https://youtu.be/pLlD8J1j4I8Interesting that they took a hymn about Christ in third person and changed it to first person for Shining.I feel like I'm missing something obvious here though.
>>293388is this new???
DAMN Beagle looks like THAT?
>>293406Yep. Posted about a hour and a half ago or so?
>>293414It's very good>>293413her default is way cuter. She looks like she has a receeding hairline in the skin
>>293417It is, honestly most of their songs feel like hits to me with only a few being misses like W's theme or the recent RWBY pair doing a song.
the song made me wanna E2 my shining so i'll do that when i get the next potion
>>293413Is there some kind of timeline for Arknights? When did this Beagle happen?
>>293425That's not a joke.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYxUWHtJO38>>293427Honestly I have her e2'd and she's my main ST medic but I can't say I've really been saved through her talent or skills much if at all, but having the option is always nice.Also Weedy just came home, so hype I got all the rate up units, and time to suffer if we do get Blade once this event is over.
>>293365Where is the quick look?
>>293444You were too slow
Beanstalk stronker than expected, can't wait for her come to global so I can have a summoner that's not a supporter.
>>293133I really love her mines, and at M3 she can shit them out fairly quickly.
Very tempted to buy this. Just dropped https://yostar.store/collections/arknights
>>293619Yeah, mines getting laid during the intervals between waves means that the start of each wave gets softened up. I like it in the same way I like Platinum with S2 just fucking up whatever drone enters her range first in a drone wave.
>>293728She has a prettyCoolsong.
>>293204holy shit now I do thanks free roll I forgive getting Aak'd now, maybe he's good luck
>>293766Eyyy congrats. I got her off a "I have gambling issues and must pull" roll.I can't wait to be free of 1-7 so I can actually get the chips I need to promote people and take stock of what I have left over and can start working on the next set of ops.
>>293767Maybe she's come to cheer me up after the bathroom ceiling just collapsed and I spent 2 hours cleaning it up.I have everything I need to promote her so I'm doing it immediately, just need some extra skill manuals.
>>293769Man, maybe that's why she came home to me too, dog made a mess twice inside today.I'm sure I could promote her too right away, but I want to follow the order I've set out for myself, plus taking stock once I finish up with the current m3's and E2s will let me double check who I need to promote for my base now that I have weedy for the factory.
>>293771She senses cleaningI still have about 400k LMD left so I'm not too worried, I'm in the "man I should E2 more people" phase rather than the masteries one and I like W and Weedy.
>>293778She senses cleaning and using a proper tool to do it too, even got parts for my central vacuum today too.I'm sitting on 3.8 million lmd right now so I'm not strapped there at all, if anything I'm tempted to skip E2 Amiya for now so I can diverse some resources into getting Weedy and Lisk ready for Blade.
>>293780I did use a lot of cleaning materials.>not E2ing your faithful bunny right awayshameful
>>293783Honestly I was just planning on E2ing her so I could use her true damage s3 for stuff like Patriot but with how things are looking I'm kinda expecting them to just spring CC#2 on us after this event ends, so I'm kinda thinking of pushing the ops I want for that forward faster and then evening out the ones I temporarily skipped over once that settles down.
>>293784I see, well she's a decent caster anyways due to her setup.I'm going to go wipe down the shower now, peace out mate
>>293785Pretty much, but I already every 6* caster except Mostima so I'm not really suffering there.Clean safely and make Weedy proud. I'm going to go molest my bed and dream of Beanstalk's crabs.
Anons I've never planned my roll. I always did 10 roll on whatever banner is available for free 5 star when I've enough originium. Did i fuck up big time? Should i start to plan ahead and save my originium like a lot of anons here?
>>293803It's all RNG anyway, why care?
>>293803only if there's someone you want
>>293803Nah, it's fine to always roll for the guarantee. Only rolling beyond that is necessarily something that has to be carefully considered.
>>293803Guarantee is a noob trap, yes you should be saving your rolls after you got a solid roster
>tutorials hype up aoe damage>high single-target dps almost universally outclasses aoe>high multi-target dps is comically broken
>>293803Depends on the units on it and if you want to save for something later.If a banner has say, Franka, Reed, Swire 5*s and Skadi, Shining, Nightingale, Ch'en, Mostima, Hoshiguma, etc. as 6*, then it's a bad idea. Those units are either common in the shop or are lesser quality.If a banner has say, Lappland, Specter, Projekt Red as 5*s and Eyjafjalla and Silverash as the 6*s, then hot fucking damn you better roll on that. These are amazingly useful and are among the best in the game. They do appear in the shop, but it's rare.
>>293919It's because AoE ranged damage is slow as shit. AoE melee is actually quite good for the most part, you have busted motherfuckers like Blaze and Specter in there.There's some AoE ranged units that have unique effects like Shirayuki who are useful because of those effects, and some that are heavily specialized like Ifrit who are stupidly powerful, but by and large AoE ranged units are slow, excessively costly, and by the time some of them even attack the enemies have moved apart already. AoE ranged units are meant to handle large clusters of weak enemies bumrushing you like the Desert stage in CC with the acid slugs or that one GT stage with ~75 light-armored soldiers.In addition there's "single target" units like Eyja who effectively do the job of AoE ones far better and for cheaper.
>>293429The outfit description implies this is future Beagle who will be an elite operator by that point.
>>293803If you're still a beginner it's fine, even encouraged, to roll for the guarantee.But at some point the amount of operators that you never gonna use is going to pile up and at that point you should start saving for what you want.
>>293444Welp, completely forgot the link...https://youtu.be/r2PJ5Nx40yA
Is it worth picking up Skadi to use her talent to boost Specter? Or should I save my gold tickets for SilverAsh to deal with those little invisible shits?
>>294312I generally see Specter used for her s2 over her damage, as for stealth detection we should be getting blade "soon" which gives us Scene who's bots all have stealth detection in a nice range.
I love Shaw! I want to sniff Shaw! I want to take Shaw to my bed and make squirrel babies with her! I want to call her cute and watch her embarrassingly ramble in her fast voice! Please pay attention to Shaw!
>>294312No, it's not worth the boost to Specter's attack to waste tickets on Skadi, Specter's top ranking because she's extremely durable (self-healing, high bulk, S2 makes her immortal) and allows for stalling several extremely powerful enemies that oneshot everything else, her being an AoE guard is just icing on top. Silverash is still busted as fuck with his crowd blasting potential even though he has fallen from the top spot so yes go for him, but not for his stealth killer ability because that's a very niche usage and he's not usually used for that.
>>294312Consider that Skadi's deployment is often very temporary and she's going to be on cooldown much of the time due to her role as a reduced redeploy boss-killer block 1 guard. She's not very helpful to Specter.
Do you guys think i should i buy the anniversary book
>>294498It's a better use of money than spending it on rolls. Why not? The game's got great art.
Done. Purchased the artbook (113 AUD christ.) Just went live, only 1500 available so be sure to get yours if you're interested! Features cute posters too
>>294587congrats mateI can't afford it but I'm glad you got one if they're that limited
How many months till we get rosmontis?
>>294589I'll post pics when i get it, i might even make an unboxing and buy frames for the posters.
>>2946577-12 months depending on if they want to give us her for the CNY banner or just anniversary.
>>294587Is shaw in it? I'll buy it if shaw is in it.
>>294680Sadly it doesn't appear that it has any Shaw in it.Have one from me instead.
>>294663That's a lot of time to save for me.
>>294692That's assuming they don't do something weird either, as we did get W before the actual anniversary date for us too.Ideally we get that banner around when we got Nian's and then the next limited cn gets we get on our anniversary and shit maybe starts lining up.
Which one is better to use anons Angelina or Suzuran?
How good is Istina?
>>2946573-4 unless they remove her from Ch 8 because every op released since needs the new materials
So CC Blade early february, my guess is it's going to start on the 5th and we might get either Gavial's event or Surging Flame rerun starting between the 18th and 21st of this month for us.
>>294943imagine if they just delayed ch 8 for a whole year
imagine meeting a new hire for the first time, and the first thing she does after introducing herself is to call your close colleague a stuffy bitch
>>294975what if said colleague is indeed a stuffy bitch
>>294976i dont care i just want my yellow cert income back
>>294978NO CERTS FOR CAT
>>294926Just pull Angelina, or use mommy
>>294926Fine, I tend to use her S1 more though which ends up making her 5* orchid (she heavily stops one enemy). Good against enemies that are already slow, or fast ones with an hp-degenerating effect.
>>294662please do>>295029what offbanner did you get
i'm wondering is it worth it to use my originium for rare headhunter characters only and just wait for Silverash to pop up on the recruitment ticket? I've already gotten 2 characters (the green haired shield lady and ifrit) from recruitment. what should I do?
>>295147Originium is used to buy skins and the level up packs so if you are f2p I'd save it for that.Top op is relatively rare but you should see it one every month or two if you are actively recruiting.
>>295167>Top op is relatively rare but you should see it one every month or two if you are actively recruiting.this is bullshit btw, it's just really rareI've gotten 2 in a month and none for 5 months.
>>295294I must be lucky then because I've averaged about one a month overall, and when we got the achievements and I did 3 months of recruiting in one month I saw 4 top ops total.
>>295311Yes, you are very lucky. As far as I know it's just one of the random "combos" when the game decides to generate a 5* combo.
>>295167>Top op is relatively rare but you should see it one every month or two if you are actively recruiting.
>>295312Yeah everything points to it rolling rarity first, then tags.If it helps I've seem guaranteed 5* combos a grand total of like 4 times in a year and one of them even dropped and cucked me with Shaw instead of getting me Red.>>295314
>>295167This is correct, anons who don't see it mustn't be getting all their recruitment contracts or refreshing 3 times every day.
>>295322I play every day and use all my refreshes, I even check before bed.My last Top Op tag was 4 months ago, a Nightingale dupe.
>>295322I have been doing all of that since I started in May, and have seen one (1) senior operator tag.
>>295354Annasui lookin ass
Why is arknights so good and azure lane just coombaite?
>got Weedy in two daily free rolls in a row after already getting her on day 1
>>295333Senior operator is rarer because it shares its chance with the other guaranteed 5* tags.
>>295371I believe that Top Op is also included in that actually, which is why some people get it twice a month and others get it never.
got my recruitment ticket brosVulcan or Indra?
>>295404Neither are that good. Pick whatever you need at the moment.Personally, I like Vulcan more than Indra.
>>295404Indra has no guaranteed tag combos while vulcan has several, pick Indra if only because she's considerably rarer otherwise. Both are mediocre units.
>3 million lmd>E2 W, Weedy, Elysium, Amiya, Skadi>400kwhy the fuck does giving xp cost lmd fucking chinks
>>293163get a job fag
>>293204was on 65 pulls, 4 Elysium dupes no W or weedy.Next ten pull W, Weedy and an elysium - so i could buy my last in the shop.
>>293204120 rollsgot Shining dupe, Aak'd, 2 Weedys, W, 10 Elysiums and a shitload of random 5*
Should I use my contract tokens for a few extra gold certs by buying another Elysium contract on my maxed one or let them expire for some orange tokens?
>>294943Still plenty of time. Then we get another limited banner soon after that, Rainbow Six Siege collab. Lots of limited to save for.
>>295459>Rainbow Six Siege collabWhat the fuck? Is this the Ubisoft collab they announced months ago?
>>294926She's the best general purpose slower because of her talent and both her skills are great for different situations. I have E2 Angelina and Suzuran and still bring Istina along for any stage that needs slowing (for instance, stages that you're supposed to clear using only ranged units). But that's all she's good for, so if you don't care about the minor difference it makes you should just raise her higher rarity versions.
>>292914got the game yesterday and pulled her as the first free roll
>>295366because tomboys and not lolis aka the patricians taste
>>295553but arknights has lolis
How the fuck am I almost out of mongoose ore already.Why is it always these shitty purple rocks too.
>>295559You are never free from the rock mines
>>295560I'm in the rock mines right now because of the bloody event.I haven't even dropped any of the sanity pots on this even yet cuz I dunno if it's super worth and we might get something good soon too.
>>294395>>294401This, but replace with Tomimi. >>293219Fellow tailbro.
how come arknights doesnt have crossovers with the other games under yostars banner
>>295616Because they're shit?
>>295499Yeah, they said it's 2021 banner.
When was arknights day 1 and how long have you been playing?
>>295709One year ago. Since one year and about a month ago.
So arts magic existed before the originum stuff?
>>295709January 16, 2020.
Whats in the limited time drop boxes I cant seem to get any to fucking drop
>>295767They should drop if you play the game at all.
AAAAAAAA I WANT COEBE
there any 4* or 5* operators that are really good to E2 besides myrtle or just my favorites?
>>295902Ambriel can one-shot basic drones and most of the weaker enemies after a couple E2 levels.
>>295904That doesn't sound good
>>295913you dont sound good
>>295902Ethan, Utage, Shirayuki, Gravel, and obviously Myrtle are the standout ones that even metafags will occasionally use. Use who you like tho.
>>2959024*:Ethan, Utage, Grave, Jaye5*:Texas, Ptil, Warfarin, Red, Amiya, Manticore, Blue Poison, Sora, Specter, Lappland, Liskarm, Shamare, Elysium.
>>295925>AmiyaIs she really? Also don't really think Sora deserves to be there. Rest of the list is fine, I'd add Whisperain, Kafka, Robin, Mayer, Scene, and Broca.
>got elysium from daily free roll>bought 10 permits with gold cert>another W but no WeedyGod why are you so cruel
>>295946>Is she really?She's the most consistent source of true damage we have in the game so she have value there.>Also don't really think Sora deserves to be there.I'd put her low on the priority list as a whole since she needs to be maxed to see her full value but she's one of the best buffers for multi-hit/ attack scale stuff.>WhisperainI forgot about Whisperain, she seems okay but I don't see much value in her over just taking Shining since people are likely to want to have both 6*'s upgraded anyway.>KafkaShe seems good too, possible enabler for some dumb Blemshine stuff, but the person I saw trying that didn't seem too impressive.>RobinShe looks like potentially the best welfare unit we have gotten so far.>Mayer, SceneBoth good summoners for different reasons but they can be hard to use if you don't like them and they don't really see much 'meta' use outside of the rougelite event.I am personally a fan though so I have Mayer's S2 m3'd and use her when I can and I am planning on doing the same to Scene when she arrives.>BrocaI think he's good too but for most people he's likely just going to be overshadowed by Surtr once we get her for aoe guard arts and Blaze for just general aoe guard most of the time.And since we are talking about future units:>IrisCaster version of Firewatch with her s2 and her s1 is a smaller version of Ceobe's s2 with a range change, seems quite worth to me.>BeanstalkSniper vanguard that maxed out has 455 attack and crab has 404 attack itself, both with 1s attack time.Only real disadvantage she has is you can't move the crab once you place it, gotta retreat bean herself, otherwise with the combined attack from her and the crab and her 150% attack scale boost on attacking anything the crab is blocking she absolutely can punch above her rarity in terms of damage.
>>295974Thing is Amiya may have a "niche" but she's still useless as hell. Kafka is fast redeploy, nuff said, and Mayer and Scene are incredibly high potential units, and Mayer has a risk 27 pyrite clear to her name. And if being overshadowed by Surtr is a concern you might as well throw Lappland out the window too. At least AOE guard is an actual unit outside of their skill procs.
>>295978>Thing is Amiya may have a "niche" but she's still useless as hell. I can generally agree, I would put her lower just like Sora but having the option for true damage if you can't debuff a thick boss is a decent option to have.>Mayer and Scene are incredibly high potential unitsHigh potential in what way? Mayer can nuke but she only does spread nuking better than W/Firewatch and Scene's main use is her bots being side guards for doing damage, stealth detection and bait because she just regenerates one instead of retreating them>and Mayer has a risk 27 pyrite clear to her name.I wasn't aware of this but I can see it happening.>And if being overshadowed by Surtr is a concern you might as well throw Lappland out the window tooThey both have the same type of demerit to the skill, Surtr's is just a level higher. If all you want out of them is a burst of aoe arts damage from a guard, Surtr is obviously the way to go if you can because she's going to do way more damage.Lappland still has use because of the ranged guard range and the fact she has a silence on her attacks, her s2 doing arts and hitting two targets is more a bonus than anything.
>>295989>High potential in what way?Mayer and Scene are high potential because they can be used to great results, carrying far more than their weight when used correctly, basically the purpose of summoners anyway.>LapplandSilence is useless now, her s2 is way too unreliable, and Surtr has even better aoe capabilities. Surtr with s2 completely takes Lappland's s2 role with better consistency and higher single target damage, and the fact that Surtr's s3 is so good that "better Lappland" is completely ignored should say something. Thorns also dumpsters Lappland with range, dps, and consistency.
>>296012>carrying far more than their weight when used correctly, basically the purpose of summoners anyway.Ah yeah okay I get you, I thought I was missing something but I get what you are saying here and fully agree. I've had plenty of uses for Maggie in the CC daily stages for all three of her skills.>Silence is useless nowI was going to argue against this but it does seem that you are right, it's only useful against older annoying enemies like spiders while a bunch of the newer annoying ones are all immune.Poor lappy, she got super dumpstered unless you are really despite for ground ranged arts damage.I guess comparing against Sutur is unfair in the same way that comparing against Eyja is, just kinda way overtuned for the role.
>>295902vigna and at least one arts guard
>>292914I wish i could exchange my W for 300 token so i could buy Weedy.
Strongest operators:1. SilverAsh2. Blaze3. Eyjafjalla4. Hellagur5. Bagpipe
>>296402>Hellagurlol fuck no, he's a decent duelist and self-sufficient lane holder in CC, he's not even in the same league as SA or Eyja. At least put something like Angelina if you're including a unit primarily used for CC stages like Hellagur.
>>295978She's a decent ST caster with a good talent, not everyone has Eyja or Ceobe.
>>296428>decentThat doesn't make her worth using outside of the literal scenarios designed for her (patriot). I'd forgo casters all together if I had to drag along the donkey.
>>296446This just seems like you personally dislike her, the unit itself is fine gameplay-wise despite not measuring up to the 6*s. There's not too many alternatives for ST casters and Amiya deals consistent arts with all 3 of her skills being usable and decent stats backing it up..
>>296411Blaze is good doe
>>296459No, Hellagur does not belong. Blaze does, sure, but Hellagur is a heavily specialized, niche unit that has no way to deal with high Def units or heavy hitters. I have him E2 with some mastery and the last time I found him useful was to stall a guerilla shielder because it attacks too slow to kill him despite him doing no damage to it.
>>296446What else is there? Absinthe? She works fine but takes a bit to get going. Nightmare's the only other one really and she's super gimmicky.
>>296411This desu, Blaze is just raw stats and doesn't obliterate high end content that well.
>>296484That can be used to describe a lot of powerful units though.She does her job very well, as a block-3 AoE guard with a 2-range skill that turns her into the most consistent damage over time unit in the game, plus a one time revive. There's not a whole lot to compete with her raw power otherwise honestly, and her AoE status gives her better general use than other statsticks like Skadi.
>>296449>>296465They're all shit. All 5* casters are completely and utterly btfo without investing hardcore into gimmicks (beeswax), and that is because most of them are nothing but dps, in which they get dumpstered by their 6* counterparts. Units like Ethan, Specter, Liskarm, Shamare, Ptilopsis perform despite higher rarity units of the same class existing, and that is because they have irreplaceable roles or utility.>>296487Silverash, Eyja, Bagpipe, Angelina, Saria are consistenty used in difficult content, aka content where metafagging actually matters, aka CC, where Blaze can't because her role is only dicking mooks. Also for general content Thorns replaces her because he's more flexible.
>>296402When is my nigga Hellagur getting a skin
>>296529>Saria>stronglast I checked she's a defensive support unit, not a strong unit like the others there, including BlazeThorns doesn't exist yet.
>>296534Utility is a strength, faggot. Angelina isn't winning any contests in dps, but she's still there.
>>296538Nope, all of those were obviously attackers ranked on power, not meta utility. Saria is not strong, she's bulky and has good utility. And Angelina is literally one of the most important arts damage units in the game, she solos the Wraith Leaders from last CC.
>>296529Okay, well perhaps read the post next time. Eyja and Ceobe are 6*.Amiya is the next best thing, hence why if you don't have those 6* units you should use Amiya. This isn't an argument on whether anyone can dumpster the most broken arts in the game, it's discussing who is a decent alternative to them, and there's not much else. Also works ok paired with Eyja in the rare case you need more than one.
>>296541At high risk she does dick to the wraith leaders. Her raw dps is not impressive, it's like 800 something per second last time I checked.>>296548Using outclassed garbage isn't what I think of when someone asks "good 4* 5*s," I think of investments that translate to endgame well.
>>296552At high risk it's pure pain and the Eyja's literally the only unit who can slay them. This doesn't mean that her value in Risk 18-21 means nothing.
>>296555>literally the only oneNo, I used shirayuki, suzuran, magallan s1, and angelina to stall and kill them at risk 25.
>>29655290% of the units are outclassed by the absurdly powerful 6*s. The fact is that Amiya is the best non-6* regular caster in the game and can fill the need sufficiently even in endgame content, unless you're going for Risk 19+ dickwaving for no tangible prize in which she can't measure up to units that ignore Res easily.
>>296558>SuzuranIt doesn't mean much then, you could use a huge variety there with her there stopping everything.
>>296559See why we were listing GOOD units that DON'T get dicked on by 6*s instead of Amiya.
>>296561>every unit is shit if a 6* is betterThis is a terrible way to think of things in a game like this. The original post was not asking about units that aren't outclassed by ez mode 6*s, they were asking for decent units that are 4* or 5*, which Amiya is. She's a pretty vanilla unit but does the job well for that.
>>296564Define decent investment. If a recruitable unit that has been in the cert shop completely invalidates your unit the moment you receive them, then I don't think they'd qualify. This, of course, is barring Amiya since you're required to promote her to progress in the story later on, g8 gamedesign, hypergryph. She'd be a shit investment if it weren't for that fact though.
>>296572Then why are we even arguing about Amiya being worth E2 when you have to regardless? Promote the little rat and get it over with, it's a moot point.
>>296564Just to throw in, as the guy that made that list this chain spawned from I listed the units that I personally think are good even with higher rarities existing, and as many people online have proven, you can make anyone work to get the rewards for basically all content.
>>296574Because she's an exception. She's not a good investment for her own gameplay performance, but because you're handheld through her promotion. She's not a good unit.
>>296582She is fine gameplay-wise. To address this>>296572 more thoroughly, it's terrible logic. Every permanent 6* will eventually be in the shop, it's just a matter of time. My friend just got Exusiai out of the shop, were they supposed to give up on all drone stages instead of E2'ing Meteor to take them out? What if a 6* unit comes out in CN that absolutely buttfucks Ethan and shames him in every aspect? Are you supposed to just ignore every strategy that would use him? The reason to promote and use them is that they fill a role for a TIME even if you can somehow get all the 6*s with supreme luck or spending. Eyja's an extremely rare unit in the shop that's usually filled with undesirable ones like Shining, what the hell else are they supposed to do in the meantime to clear out bosses like Patriot or even regular Guerilla Shielders that are obliterated by Ifrit and Eyja? Why not use the decent general-purpose ST caster the game gives you and promote her because she just needs rocks (the easiest to farm item) and a few kohl (the cheapest aside from rocks in the shop)? She works fine and is a fine role for caster, plus like you said if you invest in her as a caster she also becomes a Ch'en-lite guard through the story.
>>296576Also a good point. I'd still use Vigna or Liskarm even if I got Bagpipe or Hoshiguma.
>>296595Absolutely. Without knowing who someone has already and what they already have upgraded I can't give actual recommendations other than "these ops if you have them are generally good and don't get horribly outclassed any time soon, or outright are the only one that can do X which is good"Personally I E2d Cuora because she was the best non-healing defender I had at the time and used her till I got Hoshi (a week later maddeningly), and I don't regret it because I now have a 4 block defender that can self heal if I need it, and she did actually see use in a max risk clear of cinder recently too so hey.
>>296605I had Exusiai as my starter, and even with that I still E2'd Blue Poison after, because lo and behold having two snipers is often a necessity. Same for a lot of vanguards and defenders.CC Cinder amuses me because I keep seeing that Mudrock Surtr duo clear of some ridiculous risk like 27 or something. Glad I have Red for that stage at least.
>>296612I use Exu and BP together myself as they compliment each other wonderfully and Exu's buff lets me put BP in places you normally wouldn't want to because of her low hp.>that Mudrock Surtr duo clear of some ridiculous risk like 27 or something.I haven't seen this, do share if you have the link as that sounds funny as fuck.>Glad I have Red for that stage at least.I wish I had Red.
>>296618I keep trying to get her buff on the right unit.I think it must've been non-English recommended in title because I can't find it. Could've sworn I saw it on Ucky's channel.You'll get her soon doko?
>>296624The best way is to make sure it's only her and who you want buffed out, so the main place I use it is Anni 3 where I just start with Exu > BP then my vanguard.I found it on ucky's channel and yeah this is exactly as dumb as I expected it but holy fuck he has both at max pot.I hope I do. I have enough certs to buy the headhunting tickets out again so if the next standard doesn't have Red in the shop I'm just gonna buy that out and cry when Red is in the following banner.doko yesI am thinking it's really about time I sit down and actually make my dps spreadsheet for everyone, I know what I want to do I just need to try and figure out the best way to automatically do the skill cycles as just the base dps is piss easy.
>>296634Yeah, sometimes I just forget that Exu can buff a unit. Ucky's a big whale so I expected at least max since he makes a million videos showing Surtr blowing shit apart.You'll make it Scenedoc I beliv at u, red wolf soon
>>296642Honestly most of the time I don't really care who the buff falls on because it's a bonus, but in anni 3 BP really needs it because I'm lazy about bumping her to 60, see webm.The fun thing is Red is the only release operator I'm still missing from the original launch pool.
>>296590You're talking about plugging a hole with whatever works, when you could instead alter your strategy, or do the secret forbidden strat of borrowing a unit. I agree meta is time sensitive, and a better alternative to Amiya has always existed in every timeframe, Ethan is the only Ethan for CC beta and CC 0. More importantly, the fact of the matter is that there are 4 and 5 stars that are extremely strong and stand toe to toe with 6 stars, and Amiya is not one of them. I built Ansel because I had literally no other healers at one point, doesn't mean I'd call him a good unit worth building. I'd take the lmd back and just not use a medic in hindsight. Amiya is replacable, directly or otherwise, and that's what makes her a stopgap and Ethan core. Every 6* currently in the game could show up in the shop tomorrow and buying Ethan would still be more than a solid choice. If he were powercrept, you'd probably still see him alongside that unit more than anything, like with CC 0.
what does texas do with all of those rocks
>>296647>You're talking about plugging a hole with whatever worksNo, I am talking about using quite literally the best non-6* ST caster available. You could "plug" it with Steward. Amiya genuinely is not as bad as you're making her out to be, goddamn dude, it's like she's unusable garbage or something when in reality she's a good power ranged arts unit with a unique 3-skill kit for a 5*. I have Eyja now, but I don't regret E2ing Amiya at all, she was quite literally the only good ranged arts I had for the entirety of the time before Eyja was in the cert shop. I got a great deal of worth out of her and she nuked the Shielded Senior Casters and Bullies quite handily, which were a huge thorn in my side, especially the Bullies. She works great for all the Chapter 7 content actually due to several enemies possessing A-level Def and Res. You can only take 1 support and in stages like the CM of Ancient Forge's last stage I needed a lent Siege to even get past the first wave, so it's not always an option (the refreshes can also be a royal bitch). I reiterate, you just seem to despise Amiya herself and that's clouding your perception of what's otherwise a unit only superceded by two ultra-rare units that are gacha exclusive.Moreover, even if it was "plugging a hole" why does that factor in? Ethan was just an example, but I wasn't talking about something like Elysium vs Myrtle, I was talking something like Gummy vs Saria. The time you use that for is what's being invested in. I could play this until the EoS and never see a unit like Ceobe enter my units. Would it be incorrect to just make do with the best alternative instead when I need some high power arts? Telling people not to use a decent but not top unit because it's outmoded by the rarest in the game is silly.
>>296647Who gives a shit, the thing this was all about was a recommendation list and she's always going to be a mandatory upgrade so she belongs on the list even if she's the shittiest unit in the game, plus she's also a guard so she makes it easy to skip upgrading other dualstrike guards since Ch'en isn't that frequently used anyway. She works fine anyway, better than fucking Haze and Nightmare at least. You're overblowing how bad she is.
>>296662Probably uses them to make part of her swords in her S2, or a filter for her outfit.
>>296646Nice death row.I only saw one Crowd Control tag and it was a dupe Texas. I just got lucky and somehow managed to get Red off of Bagpipe's banner instead of the focus unit.
>>296673It's been my auto for a while, I did it cuz I wanted to cut a medic at the top so I could fit a aoe sniper in there and it worked after a few tries.The real fun bit there is Silverash is on S1, I just needed him for stealth removal.I fucking had a guaranteed Red from recruit drop a tag and cuck me with Shaw. I'm still fucking mad about that.
I'm not quite sure how the new Sarkaz casters work. Is it that they just automatically cast wide-ranged arts on everything in a certain radius at once, or do they just hit around their adjacent tiles until hit by a pulse wave
>>296676I never set up an Anni-3 auto, might do it now that I have BP and no longer need a support one.I think I got a tag drop for something 5* but it suddenly plopped Vulcan in front of me so I wasn't upset.
>>296683It's slightly more sanity efficient to run it over 2 so I think I swapped over once my team was more of a overall higher level but I can't say when I did really, though I do remember not being able to get 400 kills the first week of it.It's the only thing of good rarity that's dropped a tag on me which is why it hurts so hard.
>>296663>>296668I have nothing against Amiya besides how mediocre she is, you can replace most everything I say with "Absinthe" instead and I'd likely tell you the same thing, though Absinthe is basically better in general, seeing as her s1 is literally just infinite duration amiya s1.>exaggerating how bad she isShe has worse single target arts dps with s1 than Angelina's s3 and shirayuki s2, and those skills also slow and do aoe damage. She's pathetic, most 5* casters are; they're just hilariously undertuned compared to any other class's 5*s.>inb4 s2-3Hilariously inconvenient AND underwhelming.
why have true damage when you can just pump more candy bars into the sheep kouhai and rich snow leopard
>>296698She's an ok guard. Better than Bibeak.Doesn't make sense to compare her to a unit that can't even attack normally and a unit that normally does physical damage unless they're using their skills. Regardless this shit is gay and you have to upgrade her anyway so she's on any and all recommended 5* upgrade lists, full stop.
>>296698Them being undertuned is meaningless, because she's the only consistent arts option, both of those are not (also one of very few that use any Pure, with the only other Pure nuker being Weedy, a 6*). I suppose you could argue Absinthe would be better for Annihilation I guess but otherwise she just takes too long for an average stage without the accelerator Amiya has. You can keep saying how mediocre she is but it doesn't change that she is the best consistent ranged arts that an average newer player will be able to access and is worth using just because of that. And like everyone seems to say, you HAVE to so why not do it when she'll actually see use instead of way later on when you have a ton of better ones and get stonewalled for her guard form? Upgrade your damn rabbit, braise her over an open flame, stuff her in a pie, who cares.
>>296694I had to use an extra support sniper to replace the Jessica I had on the bottom since she invariably dies.I keep worrying over whether top op can drop.
>>296720Ah yeah that can happen, I want to say my first stable auto was after I got silverash and upgraded him?I haven't had it drop one personally so I imagine they can't, would be a stupid kick in the balls if they could anyway.
>>296722I just did it once to get the prizes. The worst part is just the arts drones, everything else is manageable.Well I haven't had one in months so the worry is small.
Do non-mammalian operators lay eggs?
>>296726>Lung of myth lay eggs that either look like giant pearls or smooth riverstonesImagine Ch'en's.
>>296724I aimed to just clear it asap and then go back to 2 but I did want to get a actual auto once I was able to save some sanity and time there.Yeah my last one was a bit over two months ago now, and that was when we got the medal update so I burned through nearly 300 recruits in one month which netted me four top ops overall.
My brain is too smooth for this game, I think.
>>296732Eh maybe I'll do it after refresh. Or not, going to be busy.I got the 300 recruit ticket but no Top Op. I don't mind though, I got both Weedy and W so I'm a happy camper.
>>296737Up to ya, I did it cuz it's fun. I have like 1.5k sanity in pots and I'm not sure if I want to dump them all into farming 1-7 for more pots, rocks and crates or hold off a bit and hope we actually get a good farming event rightaway next.I got super lucky and got W and Weedy as well so I know I'm going to be fucked for the next few banners.Hell I have too many ops I want to work on right now let alone future ones, and I need to make sure I actually get the chips and shit so I can E2 Scene as soon as she comes along.
>Look up shining art>80% of it is booby pics in her swimsuitThere's quite a few gems though, pic related.Is Shining supposed to be Christian?does christianity exist in Arknights?
>>296745It is fun but damn I suck at Anni stages, not looking forward to Annihilation 5 with the frost enemies.I also have that amount in pots and I'm just saving them to take a screenshot. I don't know what's next and I don't have the time to 1-7 it all away.I'm not even rolling for the foreseeable future, I know there's a fair few unusual banners coming up I want to try like finishing my spark on Earthborn Metals rerun or the collab if we get it. I used up 2/3rds of my leveling resources on W and Weedy so I'm just collecting some extra rocks and finishing W's furniture set.
you can force close your anni map without getting a sanity penalty/cost. so if your run fails, just close it and restart.
>>296749Well that's because Shining is hot.Anyway Shining was one of the highest ranking members of a faith-based Sarkaz institute known as Confessor, along with Confessarius who dresses identically to her and is of the same subtype of Sarkaz. She left to rescue Nightingale, who was imprisoned and was being abused.
>>296749When you consider the new song they put out for her here >>293388, any possible Christian influence is likely intentional to some degree.>>296750At least with the new anni stages we only need to clear them once.Next has to be either HoSF re-run or Gavial's event, both fit between now and when Blade should drop and I doubt they are going to be going too much out of order anymore.
>>296749christianity is an exotic aesthetic in asia, don't think about it any more than you would the christian imagery in evangelion
>>296757Only once? Odd.I'd like Gavial's, it looks fun with the shrroms and everything>inb4 Rosmontis/Mudrock are delayed 4 months after what should have been their debutNot that I mind, more save time and I already have other targets in mind.
>>296759They come in a rotation, so it's around for a bit and you get the first time kill milestones and then they go away.I mean at the earliest we could see them would be when we had Nian, otherwise they are likely a year away if they want to be fully faithful.
Fanart draws shining like... 4 cupsizes bigger than she's supposed to be....
>>296767Welcome to fanart, where every character looks like they're from Korean gacha like Last Origin that use venus bodies.Shining does have large breasts though.
>>296765I see, then you just do normal Anni?I just hope they don't delay Chapter 8 that long, 1 chapter a year is silly.
>>296771Larger, but not GIGANTIC, Sideroca has a bigger chest.
>>296767>>296771>tfw artists do this to everything>they take a delicious flat chest and give it dumb airbags tooSometimes art is bad.
>>296775Well yes, although her normal art makes them look a bit more modest than they are due to her multilayered tattered Confessor uniform (which has a thick buttoned chest section that's normally stiffly flat looking on other members).>>296776There's plenty that doesn't for some characters, the problem is most of it is terribly drawn aside from a few pieces.
Is this a femboy?
>>296784The thin shoulders and long hair suggest a girl but I think it's a guy.
>>296787Wiki says >he
>>296751I can't believe I never knew this. I should use this when I'm trying to eke out the last 70 orundum and accidentally let it run to 370 or something.
>>296773Yep, just seem to be one offs for people craving longer map formats. I'm still hoping we see a CC or event like it centered around long format maps.I can't see them delaying the chapter that long as they only have about 6 months of content ahead of us right now and I'm sure nearly a month of that could overlap with other events for us, so if they slow CN's pace down a tiny bit we ought to be caught up this year fairly easy, hell if we are really lucky we might be caught up before cc#4 comes out.
>>296791>CC+AnnihilationpainNow that I think about it, wasn't Ch7 on CN's 1st Anniversary and Ch8 on the second? Damn they're really delaying chapters to once a year, no wonder they resolved Reunion in only 8 chapters.
>>296788The wiki also has a ton of other speculatory stuff but I'm inclined to agree.
>>296792I thought of it after posting but it could be a third type where it's pure endurance or something, no kill count to close it off, or something stupid high like 999 and have it finish at the normal 400 for anni for rewards like risk 18 is and have it get progressively harder with dumb shit like multiple heavy buffed bosses for the max risk people.> wasn't Ch7 on CN's 1st Anniversary and Ch8 on the second?Only 7, Chapter 8 came out 5 months after ch 7.I am however going to go assault my bed cuz it's late and I'm tired, have a cute Mousse.
>>296796Intentional cliche character, not comparable to this. A better comparison would be Mudrock as they are both masked and ambiguous rather than deliberately looking like one but being the other.
>>296795It should have 4x then because the part that sucks about Anni is the first 200 or so enemies that are just shitters. Could just offer more DP to start with and skip to halfway in a lot of them.Good, although 5 is a lot for 1 it's not a year. Goodnight, dream of Scene.
is Greyy a femboy or a shota
>>296806A shota, there's nothing to suggest he's anything more than a very sickly little boy. Why would he be a trap?
>>296804I feel like 4x will cause issues with how it works for skills but a 'risk' to just dump you halfway through or at a heavy wave would be a nice comprise.Well considering the chapters seem to be getting longer and longer I'm not too surprised it's taking so much time to make each one, at least there is still events inbetween too.I will do my best to dream of Scene, I hope we get more art of her once blade hits global but there's always the option of learning to draw myself and just doing it myself.
>>296809A skip would be nice, yeah.I feel like the story won't be addressing anything involving anything like Kazdel or Rim Biliton for a very long time considering we're going to go fuck up fantasy-notEurope now. Feels interesting but also like filler now that Reunion is down, since there's no reason for an infected-care group to interfere with a monarchy of a foreign land that they don't even have many ops from.Peace out mate, GL on the Scene drawing.
Can E2 Shining, Nightingale, Silence, Ptilopsis and Saria keep Sutr immortal?
>>296814Shark can be immortal without hekp
>>296815She has no damage and I already have a M3 Blaze
>>296814No.You quite literally need an entire team of just healing units to do that, not just a 5 unit squad of them.
Did the Great Chief event ever have a global release?
How many days does it takes to E2 a unit from scratch assuming I'm a dirty f2p with free sanity refill only and 0 lmd? Base is fully upgraded and chapter 4 completed.
>>296961Depends on who it is
Is executor any good?
>>293204I let my friend do a free roll for me and the fucker just casually pulls W and tells me "wow, this looks like a dumb broad, why is she 6 stars tho?"
>>293204Today i just got Elysium again, now i'm only one Elysium off of a full Elysium. Isn't that just quacking crazy?
Newbie here, just got my first senior operator tag along with Ranged, DP recovery, and fast redeploy. Which operator is the best and broken to get from those tags anons? Out of the possible 5 star I already got Specter, Meteorite, Cliffheart and Liskarn.
>>297004Go get Red (Fast Redeploy Senior Operator 9 hours)
why is my assistant always gaoing
>>296961Ignoring mats because that stuff is a bitch, it should take about two weeks of base production to take a 6* from e0lvl1 to e2lvl30, about 10 days for a 5* to do the same and about a week for a 4* to do the same.
>>296811So uh, my thoughts on CC aged very poorly. CC#4 has been announced for CN already and it's like next week.I really was expecting another routelite event sometime soon but maybe it's being hard to figure out what to do for a second one or they want to see how popular it is on global.
>>296985He's fun, but by no means a must-have. I somewhat regret investing so much into him as I very rarely use him anymore. He's expensive and has short range. Like Ifrit it's all about the map you're playing on and the enemies you face. He's definitely not a "take on most missions" unit.
For what purpose is this cat forbidden from wearing clothes?
>>297153Rip, he looks pretty fun but if his range cucks him from being good then that's that
>>297390To gain the full power from him he has to attack the row right in front of him. If you can get a map with a bunch of enemies are gathering up in a narrow lane and are blocked or slowed, and you can place him just right, he'll kill everything in front of him.But he's certainly not versatile. Upgrade him if you've already upgraded the sensible choices and you want to mess around with a new unit.
>>297451if i did use him, i can imagine him working well with e2 suzuran
>>296726They're all viviparous.Except for Weedy.
>>296817>no damage>2k+ atk ready just 5 seconds after deployment
What is the contingency contract stuff? never touched it.
>>297715challenge mode maps that varies in difficulty depending on what you pick like lets say it cost triple to deploy defender units or enemies will move faster or hit harder or you cant deploy on certain tiles anymore
>>297549does that mean weedy lays eggs
>>297715Endgame content. Rest assured, you can get 99% of the rewards for 10% of the effort.
>>297341I guess Ceylon likes tummy?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUAq2wcZybgWeedy song just dropped
>>298085Yet I still don't have her. Goddammit
>>298090I got everyone, and i got Elysium so many times he's max rank.
>>298090I belib in you anon! I also belib in your credit card
Where the fuck do I farm t3 devices
All I want is my wife.
>>298213Thanks. I swear devices are the most retarded thing to farm in this game.
>>298216True they also don't have an event to farm at all
which unit gives the best hugs
Reminder that you can get extra gold certificates by buying Elysiums from the shop, I bought some extra HH tickets with my certs and finally got Weedy.
how long until they add a fast redeploy 3* to completely neuter yellow cert recruitment
>>298396Probably not any time soon, they haven't added any new 3*s for a very long time and the only one not in the recruitment pool is Cardigan.Also apparently they roll the rarity first before tags so I'm not sure if it actually changed apart from making it nigh-impossible to recruit Estelle normally now.
>>298293I was wondering about that actually. What is the conversion rate for red tokens to orange tokens from these? I'm not sure if I should just use my red tokens for an extra Elysium (he's max pot so it'd just be certs) or to save them for easy materials that are irritating to get like Manganese.
>>298085Actually really fucking good. Probably my favorite out of the recent songs.
>>298408One red token is worth 6 orange tokens, so since you have full pot Elysium that would mean a choice between 13 gold certificates or 5,625 manganese blocks.Personally I'd always go for the certificates.
>>298462I just freerolled another Elysium actually, this banner has been good to me. I have enough reds for one more so that's 10. I'll do it on the last day.
What would you see if you looked through Weedy's skirt window?
Will i need another healer if i have Shining, Nightmare, Nearl and Myrtle? I just used them to clear the last red voucher stage, and it went pretty smoothly
>>298647Ptil for 30% more sp regen, Saria because Saria and Nightingale for anti-arts eventually.
>>298647Out of all the other Healing units:>PtilopsisNot even used for the healing explicitly, she boosts SP gain by an extra 0.3 SP per SP.>NightingaleFor CC Cinder and Chapter 8's finale.>WarfarinScales extremely well with units like Exusiai that attack fast but have middling atk.>SariaThe de-facto healer for everything really, many people don't use medics at all thanks to her.>FolinicEvent only but if you got her she does have the unique feature of being the only medic that can attack enemies (with a sort of burst AoE heal+arts damage shot). Gimmicky, also can function as better Ansel with S1.>PerfumerJust level her dude, she's extremely important for a lot of strategies and she's dirt cheap since she's 4*.>BreezeI heard she technically has the highest healing out of AoE healers, but it's a bit redundant.>SussuroKind of moot with Shining's S1 but good for Surtr if you plan on rolling for her.
>>298655Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't Saria impossibly hard to get these days?>>298667>>Ptilopsis boosts SP gainI didn't know that, out of those i think i have all of them but Saria. Might go for Follnic next, considering i dont even have Ansel at max level
>>298695I just use her S1 usually, her slow atk spd doesn't lend her too much power even with her burst shot.Also Saria's just like any other launch 6*. She'll be in the shop again eventually and she's in the recruitment pool.
>>298695>Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't Saria impossibly hard to get these days?She's in recruit my dude. Just gotta get lucky with top ops.
>>298293That seems like an incredibly poor trade-off for all the regular resources you'd get if you let them convert to parametrics.
Which one of Myrtle's skills do i want to specialize? is specialization even worth it?
>>298755I guess it's just a way of rapidly generating a fuckton of DP right?
>>298759YesBest paired with Bagpipe for instant DP but still good without her
>>298763eye am lucky i have a e2 bag already
>>298765nice, perfectdon't forget Elysium to go with them too
>>298765Mrytle s1 without mastery but with bag takes 9 seconds till you can activate but with mastery only takes 3 seconds, plus the nest cast is 3 seconds faster than no mastery.
>>298647I have gotten a shitton of use out of Silence and her Medical Drone. Being able to throw down a drone that heals everything around it a fair bit is really useful. Need some healing for that one sniper sitting by itself? Drop a drone. Need some extra healing for your guards as the heavy-hitting enemies are making things a bit too dangerous and the healers can't keep up? Drop a drone. It's cheap for what it offers, available quite often and doesn't run out during the battles. It's quite literally a lifesaver.Silence herself is also a good healer and she boosts other healers aspd, which is nice.You don't *need* her, but she can really be helpful.
>>298777Nice 7's. I like to use the Medical robot for that reason, you plonk it down, doesn't add to the unit count, gives everyone flat health. Great in a pinchi
>>298396>>298398It's harder to know when you've got a 4*, but the actual rates should be exactly the same.
>>298777Early on I found her drone handy too cuz it could help out in a pinch where I needed more healing but as I've progressed and gotten the higher rarity units that can heal I've been finding myself needing less actual healers often and tend to just use Ptil for her sp buff now.
Who are the best defendersI like liskarm she has a gun
>>298839she has a stun too, very good defender
>>298840Saria, Hoshi and Mudrock are likely going to be the ones you see most of the time.
>>298840perhaps a stun gun
>>298841If you have the mats to spare.... 6 stars can be quite painful to level.
>>298844They are, but most 6*s are worth the mats and even then they shouldn't be a side thought for your mat farming unless it's a pure luxury unit for you.
>>298844For good reason, they're usually excessively powerful and infrequent to get.
I can't stop thinking about this guy when I say Elysium's name.Feels like E2'ing him is low priority, he doesn't seem to gain much. Should I do his E2 first or Red?
>>298868Considering we have blade in a month or so I'd go with Elysium first, Gravel is plenty fine for it since you don't need Red's stun.
>>298871Oh yeah, fug. I should E2 Gravel before both of those, she really needs the extra stats to put into her shield to survive a purple Faustshot.
>>298875You don't need to survive the purple shot, most runs I saw just retreated her once they confirmed the bolt fired.
>>298876It doesn't reset his shot? Nevermind then, I'm dumb.
>>298878Nope. Pretty sure any attack can't switch targets once the attack animation itself starts.
>>298885I thought it reset the atk timer unless they were stunned because the Demolitionists seemed to do that. Man I've been using Red to limp past too many things.
>>298888The only thing I know for sure does reset a attack is them being stunned, it's part of why you saw videos of the golems from ToW being memed on without the towers because you can stall them forever because of how slowly they attack.
>>298889Ah yeah I remember that, Bibeak took a while.
Should i E2 my nearl, or try and get Saria
>>298868Not really a point to e2ing Red unless you want to master her skill(s).t. e2 lvl 80 pot 3 m6 Red user.
>>298920Actually it's because of Chill, that was pretty useful. More damage for her drop-bomb S2 as well.
>>298908Saria is a huge upgrade, but I don't know what you mean by "try to get," you better not be pulling off focus for her. Healing defender is hardly a necessary role; most roles aren't; so if you don't feel comfortable dumping resources in her, you don't need to.
What if there were more gamemodes... like what if you could use your Operators for an attack instead of a defense?
>>298930I was honestly hoping we would see a third event type or a second rougelite by now, though I can't see your idea working too well.
>>298930You may as well spend all that gamedev effort on an entirely new game. The closest mechanic we have to moving operators is retreat/redeploy, and aside from helidropping they are completely incapable of aggressing.
quick ways to get lmd fast
>>298978i need more or else the sad cat is gonna take my kneecaps
>>298979Well there's no cap on refreshes anymore so get swinging that credit card I guess?
>>297341She's supposed to be from a summer region, so swimsuits and stuff. Her skin has her on clothes.
>>298695I might get a lot of shit here but Ptilopsis is the best medic in the game
I have these 6 stars>Silverash>W>Weedy>Angelina>Magellan>SuzuranCan someone tell me the best e2 order/priority for these units?
>>299376Ptilopsis isn't the best at actually being a medic, she's the best booster in the game (to the point where a lot of strategies using her just slam her in the farthest corner of the map instead of near anyone she can heal). The best medic is probably Nightingale simply because she has the highest stats and reduces arts, she slightly edges out Shining due to Def generally being of less concern.Speaking of medics, I'm surprised there's not been anything new in the way of 6* medics. Guess they don't really have anything else to do with them.
So uhRemember Future Lava or Movie Lava, whatever? She's an event prize and her official name is now "Hellfire Lava"
>>299378Silverash is the obvious choice. Truesilver Slash is really, really powerful and he can use it quickly after being placed. There's a reason why he's an essential part of many strategies for beating maps.
>>299378Silverash, Weedy, Angelina. The rest is up to you
What skill should I master for Weedy?
>>299868S3 is going to be the main one you use for her.
>>299934Don't have any but she was just announced to be in the "Who is Real" event in the CN newsletter (i.e. the CNY event, where Nian and the next Zodiac unit will be run).She should look the same as her story appearance for E0.
>there are still 20x 5-6* operators on CN we don't haveAaaa how do I plan when there are still so many options?
Actually decided to look into it further. These are the upcoming events (in the order CN got them) with the 5-6* operators on their banners: Heart of Surging Flame rerun-Andreana 5*-ThornsGavial the Great Chief Returns-Flint 5*-EunectesRewinding Breeze-Surtr-April 5*Maria Nearl-Blemishine-Aosta 5*Chapter 8 (limited)-Rosmontis-Mudrock-Whisperain 5*Mansfield Break-Mountain-Kafka 5*Beyond Here-Archetto-Iris 5*
any tips for someone starting out? started a few days ago
>>299978Narrow it down. For example, what do you need role-wise? No Saria? Maybe go for Blemishine. And another, who's the most overpowered? Mudrock, Surtr, and Thorns are the key candidates.Do you care about Limiteds? Then Rosmontis and the new Zodiac unit are good to think about.Then consider who to eliminate.Do you really need a unit like Whisperain? Is a 6* brawler guard like Mountain worth using up your rolls on when busted shit like the three above are floating around? Do you really need an ultra heavy boss killer gimmick defender like Eunectes just because she has juicy thighs?
>>299995>>300039I just had a look at all of the upcoming 6* and literally all of them seem worthwhile. What a difficult lot. Obviously Mudrock is the top priority due to story significance and the limited banner, but I can't even save rolls because there are 4 good banners between now and then and she'll probably come in March. And I'll probably need twice as many rolls thanks to Rosmontis. You're right that Thorns and Surtr seem very good, I'd probably aim for them too. Mountain might be a brawler but he's the best in his archetype and they're getting buffed and you can also use him as a cheaper AOE guard. Archetto might be just another sniper but she does a lot of AOE damage while still being a regular sniper. Blemishine, Eunectes, and Rosmontis seem a bit less gamebreaking, though still very strong. I suppose they are the best candidates to skip. Is this the general consensus?
>>300053I'm not saying Thorns, Surtr, and Mudrock are "very good," they're flat out busted. Surtr is the most powerful arts unit in the game and can mash A+ level res enemies like melted butter. Mudrock is near unkillable at all times and Thorns basically outmodes 95% of all non-arts guards. Brawler guards "buff" already happened, it was literally just a pathetic smattering of extra stats that did next to nothing to help. Skip Mountain unless you're into bara furries, he's not weak and is by far the strongest brawler but he's nothing compared to Surtr or Thorns.Blemishine is the best out of the last three there, she can perma-disable most slower attacking enemies. Eunectes and Rosmontis are alright I guess.
>>300053Thorns, Surtr and Mudrock are the ones I'm aiming for personally, the rest don't do enough better or differently from what I already have to make me want them.Though some banners like Archetto I will roll on because I want the 4/5*'s from them.
>>300053https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgwJQHBR_yASurtr is commonly considered the most broken attacker in the game and is so powerful it's considered a valid and highly effective strategy to bring just Surtr and an entire team of medics +Myrtle. If you're only rolling for gameplay then fuck everything else, you want Surtr and Mudrock with Thorns on the side. Mountain, Archetto, Eunectes, whatever, they're a joke compared to Surtr. I can't believe they greenlit her.
How much more time on the limited lunchbox and juicebox drops, I have over 2000 sanity of pots and I don't know if I should blow it farming now or save it to whatever event is next. Do we know the next event and when?
>>300105Two days and nine~ hours till it goes away. I've been checking jp/en twitters but no previews at all yet so it's looking like the next event might be late next week.
>>300110egh, I guess I'll save 5 of the longest lasting ones for it then if we don't knowAny likely candidates?
>>300112HoSF re-run or Gavial are what I'm expecting personally, I can't see them going too far out of order and both will easily fit before CC early next month.
>>300123What mats are farmed each of those? I need Manganese and Aketon.
>>300126HoSF re-run is just random shit in the gachapon machines, Gavial is sugar, rocks and rma.Again though, this is just my personal guess and I haven't had a good track record of good guesses so far.
>>300131bleh, I have sugar and I'm OD'ing on rocksRMAs will be nice though, but if it's only 1/3 I think I don't need to save too much.Thanks
I just realized that if you activate Ptilopsis' skill with her event costume the Meeboo she was given will begin autistically bouncing like the BD robot in real life. I really like that, it's cute.
>>300105>not blowing your sanity on farming and thereby getting more sanity
>>300036just have fun with it
>>300036Don't spend gold certs willy nillyBuy level packs if you don't care about costumes and don't use primes on rolls until you exhaust packs if at alluse https://aceship.github.io/AN-EN-Tags/akhr.html for recruitments
>>300163but my potions
>>299995There is also joint operation and we likely won't get thorns on hof rerun but for cc instead and a schwarz rerun during hofWell I will only roll for Surtr rosmontis and archetto, currently have 300 rolls so I hope I can be lucky and get them all
>>300036Upgrade your base firstRaise 1 or 2 meta ops(eyja or silverash) if you have them and then focus on favoritesI would only recommend guides for the supply stages or annihilation, for everything else just bash your head into it and think of stuff you could improve so the run goes smoother
>>299995Only cute Rosmontis I need.
>>299995I just want Thorns and Arene but the metafag in me knows I have to roll Surtr as well
>tfw keep 3:50'ing Specialist to try for some Thermals>Shaw>Shaw>Shaw
>>299995Wait, so US never got those?
>>300238I've been doing 3:50 melees to try and get thermal and I actually got my first one from doing that today.
>>300241No region outside of CN did yet.
>>300245It's likely worse because I'm running the chance of getting Castle-3 by doing that too, but melee tags are super common and I don't have Castle maxed too yet anyway.
>>300249I've got both Lancet and Castle maxed. I might try doing this too, I like Thermal.
>>300252The way I look at it, I'm going to likely be getting a 3* if I don't get Castle/Thermal and I've gotten way less 2*s than expected so I don't feel like I'm hurting my green cert income that much either way.
>>300258It'd be nice if Robot was less absurdly rare. Not like it breaks the game, could replace the starter tag every once in a while.
>>300263It would be better if it wasn't lumped in with the 5* tags when you do get it, I've passed on robot plenty of times cuz I'd rather get a 5*.
What even happened to purstream and conviction, will we ever get them? They have really nice skills for the base
>>300277I had to pass on a few like that, yeah. Normally it just comes with 4* ones though.
I need the full version of this PV song.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STmqBzsEATMI really just need to get the entire ost cuz there's just so many banging songs.
>>300241There is no US server.
how do you use magallan well
What kind of skull does the Confessarius wear?
>>300351What are you trying to use her for exactly? I've found her S1 shines when you need to slow something heavy but it's in a awkward area where other slowers can't do their best or you need aoe slowing.Her S2 is kinda shit because of it's range but I've found use for it on daily cc stages with throwers to kill them when you have the tag that nullifies their hp loss.Her S3 I generally use to replace snipers in maps like CC dalies where you have less units you can take or can drop into a dangerous spot, activate it so they retreat just after their stealth ends, most notably for normal stages would be CA-5.
>>300360i dont know. i just got her and she is the only character i knew before i started the game because i think she is cute and id like to be able to use her but my friend who plays the game said she is difficult. maybe they arent the best but i was just curious a way i can make her work
>>300359Looks like a goat skull with a hole in the center.
>>300036Don't focus too hard on the high rarity units, 3* ops are very cheap to raise and are useful for a lot longer than you'd think in a gacha game. There are people dedicated to clearing stuff with only 3* and freebie units.
>>300369Well the biggest downside to multi-summoners (Maggie, Mayer, Scene, Deepcolor) is their summons take up a deploy slot, so to use Maggie and her drones that's half of your slots gone right there.The way I try to use Maggie is looking at the drones as fast redeploy snipers effectively, put them in a spot to deal with a wave, use her skill to bring them back and then reposition them for the next set, but this honestly works best when you have other units that can do multiple roles so you don't need that many slots anyway.I do have free slots if you want to add me and try to play around with my m9 Maggie too before you invest too hard into her at this point.
>>300373sure! thatd be nice of you. my ID is 41358835
>>300381Tossed one your way, I've left her on s3 because that's the main skill you tend to use on her.
Next event is HoSF Re-Runhttps://twitter.com/ArknightsEN/status/1349642411568316418Which means: Thorns, Andreana and Jaye banner.Guess that's also why we just had Skadi in the shop then, cuz her summer skin is in this too.
>>300351She was really good for CC pyrite because when used with suzuran her skills have insane uptime, her s1 groups up enemies and stops them in their tracks for a pretty good time and then you can destroy the wraiths and such with aoe arts damage, and the drones can also draw the crossbowmen's attention away from your other units. I know her s2 was also really good on that map too, but it's harder to utilize, mostly just for the sniper strat, which lacks arts dps for the wraiths. She's good for CC in general, her s3 is her generalist skill, the other guy covered it well, fast redeploy snipers ins about right. Really good for sniper bans, and strong aoe damage in general; nearly 2k atk with big aoe range on skill proc. If you're playstyle is more flexible with lots of redeploying then the deployment slots isn't as big of an issue and she's easier to utilize. I've got her m9'd too so I can shoot you a request. I'll put her on s2 maybe.
>>300381NEVER REVEAL YOUR ID . Say your account name and tag. Your id is like your password in game and someone can use that as a way to lock up your account by reporting. Also you can't add someone through game id
>>300534No my stashes are still recovering...
>>300645You can add through it. But yeah, don't give away your ID bro.
Farmed 2880 red certs for 25 atk. No regrets, feels fucking good, gonna do it again with Maggie.
>>300645>>300722guess i outed myself as a super noob
>>300243>finally got another ThermalIt was off a specialist tag but it's very nice seeing the Fragile effect go up.
>>300800yeah but have you read her book?
>>292885Is it worth getting the doctors choice and/or the six star + 10HH bundle? Been playing for about a month or so and the game seems pretty nice. Think i have been lucky on 6 stars aswell so im pretty okay
>promoted PtilThis better be worth it
the rocks are just chocolate that you feed your operators to encourage them to perform better
>>301179the operators must have fucking diabetes by now they literally eat chocolate and raw sugar
>>301180that's what the oripathy treatments are for
>>300534Worth using the pots on or blow them all now?
>>301214Considering there's no infinite gachapon this time gambling on 1-7 is likely worthwhile. But I'm also bad at math so others might want to chime in too.
>>301241>Considering there's no infinite gachapon this timewatwhy? What's there to farm then?
>>301241hold up, No gachapon? how do you get the unqiue furniture set then? I got the DDD one last time and though I could get the Alive until sunset set one this time. also if there isnt a gachapon there wont be any resources to farm right?
>>301274>>301286It still has the 1-5 gachapons, but since they have a set amount of items in them you just need to farm enough currency to buy them out and then you are done.It's overall just way less rewarding than the first time around even with the int certs for vets.
>>301302that's awful what the fuck
>>301133depends are you really gonna stick around playing it or do you think youll drop the game after the next month
>>301302They may have made the event just a little above average in resources now in the re-run but hey at least I can get my Alive until sunset stuff and intelligent points I can exchange in the store. RIP to new players though they missed out hard especially on the magnesium, If I remember correctly it was a 50% chance of getting magnesium from the infinite gachapon. I still have left over magnesium from the first HoSF and am in no danger of running out anytime in soon even with upgrading and masterys going off all hours of the day and night on my account.
>>301373The re-run is about on par with "side story" events but it's way below any of the events where you have stages to farm, but that seems to be the running theme with re-run event rewards overall.Missing any event first run seems to be just a massive rip for anyone if you want the rewards vs farming stages.55% chance to get a epic tier capsule which was just Sugar and Manganese.All it really means is we farm to clear the gachapons then go back to whatever it is you are normally working on I guess.
So use all the pots right now I guess. Dang that sucks. I'm just going to farm red certs anyway.
>>301302Isn't there a chance they might have an extra shop like they did with the darknights event?
>>301384There isn't no. The extra shop in Darknights was a thing in CN as well so it wasn't surprising that we got it, just that we weren't sure if we would get it at the start or not.
I can't lie, I was rooting for Patriot a bit.Not even because of his "I'll kill fate" shlock but just because Amiya and Doc's responses to everything he said were fucking pathetic holy shitThe man's got nothing to lose, he's literally hours from death, his daughter is dead, he's the last of his kind, and he's part of an organization he knows is falling apart.Then Amiya and Doc come in with "b-but Frostnova approved of us"fuck you
>>301405He is not the last of his kind
crying into weedy's thighs because no w
>>301484>got weedy>got w>got a full potential elysium toohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUAq2wcZybg
>>301484Can I join you but more because I'm stuck in the rock mines for another 10~ hours at least?
>>301484Crying into W's tits because no Weedy
Dude.... WEEDy... LmaoooOOOO
>>301494Same but not because I failed to get her but because I didn't realize when the banner was ending like a retard and missed getting weedy.
>>301572Weedy isn't limited at least so the next set of banners onward should have her in it so you always have the chance of getting spooked.
>>301576She shows up 5 months later on CN, and Ceobe and Aak have recently had rate ups since their debuts, so I guess now I just wait.
>>301585A focus banner yeah, but she should be in the standard pool for any banner now right?
>>301595Sure, but that's not a reliable hope for getting her at all.
>>301596True but you just need to have faith in getting bad enough luck to only get off banners for the next few big roll banners we are getting.
>>301598The only things I have an eye out for are eunectes and whisperain. None of the other operators really interest me.
>>301600Oh, and I want Flint cuz she's cool.
>>301600Oh fair. I'm still a massive metafag so I'm hoping to get Thorns, Surtr and Mudrock fairly easy when they all roll around, but I do want some units that just look fun like Kafka, Iris and Beanstalk.
>>301609Yeah, maybe I'll snag Kafka and Beanstalk, they seem fun. I'll all metafagged out tho, I think I'm set for life.
>>301611Honestly Surtr is the main one I want for metafaging, Thorns and Mudrock are both great but nowhere near as dumb as Surtr.Kafka just has a really interesting overall style and I'm still horribly lacking when it comes to FRD ops cuz I only have Gravel and Waai Fu as it stands, while Beanstalk is at least in my opinion, likely another hidden monster of a 4* with the stats between her and her Crab.
>>301481Did Chapter 8 reveal there's another pureblood Wendigo? Pretty sure they made a huge deal out of him being the very last one for a reason.They didn't just handwave it, they outright had him state he's the last one, it's part of the whole prophecy with the demon king Amiya's supposed to be where the last of his race will be killed by them, and they plastered it to titles and such around him. It'd be pretty silly to just invalidate all that.
>Top Op tag finally>can pick Skadi, Ch'en, or SiegeDeep down I know Ch'en isn't that great but hot damn I want her. Not even bothering with Skadi, who do I choose? Ch'en would save me buying her later and having both Top Op and Nuker in the same one is absurdly rare, Siege loans save my ass when my Elysium and Myrtle are too slow and I'd probably use her more but at the same time my vanguards are mostly handled. I'm not chancing a random one, I don't want a dupe.
>>301669If you don't have bagpipe and have found borrwing Siege that useful I'd just go with her.Skadi is just stats and Ch'en is handy for her talent but with Archetto we are seeing that we will get stronger more focused versions of her talent so she might not be super handy for that in the future too.
>>301670Well I have used Siege 3 times.Once in Risk 14 of CC Barrenlands, to stem the very first two soldiers. No other unit was bulky enough within cost range.Once in Ancient Forge's last stage, to kill the bumrush dog on the top row. Retreated after.And one in a story chapter, before I got Myrtle.I've also used Skadi a single time, for CM 5-3. Near impossible without her, even with SL1.I've never used Ch'en, I don't actually know what she does other than "gojira chen *cue loud noise and shit dying*" but I had planned to spend 180 certs on her when she came out as she is very attractive and I already bought her NY costume in preparation.
>>301674Siege has nice aoe but 2 block for most stuff can be filled by most other 2 block vanguards, Texas is my go to 2 block now and in the last cc she cut it where my Siege couldn't, somehow.Skadi is just a giant bundle of stats, she's nice if you need massive bulk to get through something, like 5-3 CM but in general you honestly don't need her.Ch'en has two nukes, a instant in her s2 where it's 500% phys + arts and her s3 which takes ten hits to charge but does 10 320% hits.This does sound like you should just follow your dick here 2/3 of these units are basically luxury units and the other one is good but easy to replace most of the time and once you get Bagpipe it's unlikely you are going to use her much unless you are doing full vanguard meme squads.
>>301678The Nuker tag dropped and the game chose for me.
>>301679Happens.Don't forget we have the next CC early next month so don't go too ham on Siege if you still have other units you wanted to be upgraded for it.
>>301681Yeah I guess this means I'm spending those certs anyways, fug. I even took a screenshot of choosing Nuker. Better than another dupe though, I would've been pissed if it were yet another Nightingale token.Probably Liskarm first, I know she's important because of the Brawlers. Just did Ptilopsis and she's ok.
>>301684Shit happens, I know I'm buying red the instant she's in the store again because she's the only launch unit I fucking STILL don't have.>LiskarmIf you don't have Weedy S3M3 and Ange S3M3 I'm not really sure I would bother with her at this point, she's only really seen to feed Weedy SP so she can keep knocking the pack of enemies back, I know I'm unlikely to bother myself unless I can get my Weedy E2'd and m3'd for week 2 bullshittery at least.
>>301685All my Top Op tags end up this way somehow, it's weird. Better to have one than not though.I have Weedy E2, no Masteries. No Angelina. Eh, don't want the increased DP cost anyway.
>>301686Ifrit plagued my top op tags for a while for some reason but it seems like her mother is the one I've gotten the most of now.If you don't have Ange I wouldn't bother with trying to do push memes at all, the weight reduction on enemies from her S3 is generally the biggest enabler for that stuff.If you are unsure on what to try and aim for for CC#2 you can take a peek at Bam's sheet:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MYmj9wWFziNamINoKCmcQNO9mADF2r3gAeOhYMKiDDs/edit?usp=sharingBut honestly everything sorta points to this being the easiest CC so far, a lot of his examples are 3/4* squads with a borrowed 6* to cut through stuff.
>>301690I'm just going to gun for the trimmed medal. I lost last time thanks to hyperbuffed Wraiths.
>>301694#1 Priority for me when blade rolls around is E2ing Scene, then I'm going actually work on CC.Trimmed this time should honestly be much easier, hell I likely shouldn't need any of the upgrades I want to do to just wing my way to it day 1.I am however going to go assault my bed, have a very tired Pram.
The blue aura/circle on Blaze indicates her status resistance is active right?
>>301615You can never really go wrong with more fast redeploys, I almost never have a reason not to use my m6 red all the time. Surtr would probably be my next most wanted 6* from the rest of the upcoming new batches because I really like her artist, but her being so op is more of a turnoff to me than anything, since I'll end up avoiding using her, and something about her design just doesn't quite speak to me. Her s3 animation and sound is sick tho.
>>301678>Skadi>massive bulkLol, that's literally her problem. The reason she's so underwhelming is she dies to the enemies she's supposed to be killing. It's why Hellagur, Bagpipe, Specter, Siege, and Utage are able to be used in super high risk on CC 0 to duel the spiders/mages and Skadi can't. What she has going for her is her high atk stat, but for actual DUELING, 1v1 and when the enemy is hitting back, she is worse than other options.
>>301840Hellagur is also generally affected by the Risks less due to his archetype. I find him pretty mediocre for normal content but damn he's good at holding a line in CC.
I want to touch her paw pads
>>301876She has pretty normal looking person hands aside from the fuzz actually. No indication of any pads or stuff like that on her fingers at least.
>>293204No Weedy but I got W and Elysium, even got Elysium to maximum potential. It's fine, I still have Shaw and a bunch of other good stuff, I'll live and W's been doing wonders for clearing shit
>>301962How bout her feet
Mine the rocks Amiya.
>>302028Go nuts I guess, although they look hybrid-like.
>>301876>>302028>>301962You are a furry.
>>302611thank you for your wise words captain obvious
>>301876ngl she made me lowkey furry
I AM FREE FROM THE ROCK MINES.I have no more sanity pots left and this stockpile of rock should last me a good 6-8 months depending on how many rocks people actually need.Now to open 73 rations and see what I got in there.
>>302765>I AM FREE FROM THE ROCK MINES.No you're not, this is just a short break. There's a few hours of natural regen left before the event ends, get back into the mines.
>>302770Fuck that. I spent most of today tending to Arknights and Priconne because I had such a glut of stamina.I'm going to let it sit and try and finish my anni's tomorrow and try and get the chips I need to promote people before Blade rolls around.
Anos, I want to DING-DONG DIDDLY inside of W so badly. What do?
>>302782shut up flanders
>>302814Does lappland and texas is lebsians?
Looks like HOsF re-run will start in 4 days on the 20th, with CC possibly being on the 4th of next month?
>>302885Do i cop the shining skin... hmm
>>302892I'm skipping it again personally, I don't think it looks bad but it's not interesting enough for me to want to buy it, Platinum on the other hand I am absolutely buying though.
>>302855Stop reading fanons and read actual game lore
>>302611I'm not a furfag actually, I refuse to use any of the ones I have including Aak. I hate them. Just was pointing out she has human hands.
>>302855Texas hates/fears Lappland and tries to avoid her at all costs. This is exhibited by her skill "Feud."Lappy is obsessed with making Texas into the former (assumed) gangster or criminal she was before, which is different from how she is with PL. There's no hint at romance, only unhealthy, violent obsession.
>>302893I'm picking it up because it's the only "swimsuit" I've seen in any mobile game that has a background like that.
Why the fuck is she so cute
>>303234Because Shaw is cute!
Well it's confirmed that we are getting thorn's banner with the HoSF re-run too, hope you guys actually have rolls saved.
>>303952Not rolling. I have 100 rolls worth though.
>>303956Fair, I'm going to roll but I'm not expecting to get Thorns, ideally I can get Jaye easy as the last 4* I wanted evaded me for like two months.
>>303959Ah shit I did want Jaye. Maybe I'll throw a couple normal 1-pull tickets at it.
>>303960Yeah Thorms coming right after W is a bit of a bitch, but at least we will have a bit of time to build up a stock for Surtr when she rolls around.
>>303962well originally I planned to skip Thorns entirely, Jaye's the only thing incentizing me. Wouldn't mind Andreana though.
>>303963That's fair. Thorns looks handy but I can't say we have seen him a ton outside of normal stages so I'm not that worried if I don't get him, Jaye is just nuts for his rarity but we still don't see him a ton.
>>303969He fits a good slot, a reduced redeploy time unit with high stats plus healing or silence. I also just like the character.
Oh no no no, lappkeks, first silence is useless, now we get powercrept by a 4*...
>>304506imagine being a frostleafcel
>>304506what is this /v/-tier postspeak like a human being
>>304642/v/'s become such a shit board it's retarded posters are creeping in...
>Rat King>590 Atk>A-grade Atk>Patriot>2000 Atk, also hits 4x with each attack>A-grade Atk>Enraged Possessed Leader>1750 Atk>S-grade atkwat
ive been having such a blast i wish i didnt have to deal with the stamina so i could play more
>>304943It's so you dont hit the wall of >there's no more story after the newest chapter
>>304982As we expected, which is nice. I guess the question is going to be now, will we get the 10 roll headhunting ticket that CN got as a apology for Thorns with Gavials event too?
>>304982isn't it kinda meta how there's gacha machines in gacha games
>>304985>apology for Thornswat
>>304985Most likely not. I'm not saying this to shit on them, it's just that it's nonapplicable now.
>>304972yeah thats fair. i guess itll help me not burn out as fast too.
>>304989CN was mad that on a re-run even that gave vets no new OP that they released a banner with new operators and multiple new skins,so they said they wouldn't do it again and they re-ran Thorn's banner with Eunectes banner right after Gavials event ended while also giving out a 10 roll ticket too.>>304993It just seems a bit silly to me for Yostar to repeat this same issue except even worse for global, at least CN had about three months between W and Thorns while we are only getting a week.
>>304996>CN was mad that on a re-run even that gave vets no new OP that they released a banner with new operators and multiple new skins,so they said they wouldn't do it again and they re-ran Thorn's banner with Eunectes banner right after Gavials event ended while also giving out a 10 roll ticket too.Jeez chinese people get upset at the darndest things
>>304996arknights is great but its still a gacha game they gotta try to to give you a little shove to spend money to buy rolls
>>304999I wish EN/JP got upset like that, at least they got free shit. The EN playerbase is the most bootlicking gacha playerbase I've ever seen. There's a whale who polices the comments on twitter and attacks anything he sees as "ungrateful" even if it's neutral, same for the gamepress comments.
>>304999Well global has it much worse with Thorns coming right after everyone blew their saved rolls on W, I doubt EN will kick up much fuss but maybe JP will be pissy enough about it.>>305001Oh I know. Personally I'm not surprised that this happened but you would think Yostar would look at the backlash that happened in CN and realize the potential for it to be so much worse on global with this banner coming right after W's.
>>304982im new and my friend told me the new event usually starts when the current banner is ending. does that mean that was incorrect if the current banner ends on the 22nd but that twitter says the new event starts on the 20th?
>>304999>Jeez chinese people get upset at the darndest thingsWhy look at it like the playerbase is in the wrong for something? It's just the major "wtf why" moment every gacha goes through. FEH's was Ayra for example. Should praise Hypergryph for handling it well and considering feedback instead of just sitting back and flipping the bird like IS did.
>>305021And IS hasn't learned a damn thing and continues plaguing their game with powercreep; especially in the past year or so; making more mechanics to make skill secondary to spending, and witholding information from letting players make wise decisions with their resources. Fuck feh.
So I guess this is our next standard. Nightingale and Nightmare in the shop by the looks of it.Easy as fuck skip with Thorns right away, plus all dupes too.
>>305069Is it just me or are NG and Shining in the shop extremely often? Hoshiguma too.
>>305047Yeah, plus the FEH pass. I like that AK is run by people who at least give a shit. The only real complaint I have is how retardedly broken Surtr is but otherwise balance is good and they listen when people have grievances like getting buttfucked by banners like Thorns in which they had every reason to in CN. Part of why the game is in a good state really, the good relationship they have with the non-TW playerbases. FEH feels like it’s dying because the devs are deaf to the players
>>305084They are more common but not horribly so. Maybe they are more common just in general for the banners but who knows.
>>305103And the times 6*'s have appeared in the standard banners as a whole, which follows basically the same pattern except Ifrit is more popular here for some reason.It does look like they often use the "less" desirable 6*s as filler between the ones people more likely want.
>>305119Why is Ange less desirable? I thought she's mandatory for high CC even after Suzuran claimed best Slower.
>>305180That's why I put it in quotes really, Ange is great for CC but you won't often use her outside of it in places where you couldn't just use orchid most of the time.Contrast it with units like Saria or Silverash where you can find use for them in plenty of normal maps and can be the deciding factor for new players to get past some content when they don't have a terribly developed roster.
>>305189Ah. I probably shouldn't have gotten her skin in anticipation of picking her up then. Bleh
>>305191Angie is great, but aoe slow isn't that valuable over straight dps n shit when there aren't as many extremely dangerous enemies running around like there are in CC. Investing in high difficulty content clearers is a good strategy, since you'll still run circles around general content.
>>305191Naw if you like the skin it's worthwhile and for using her in normal maps she does give more options and can make things easier because of her stronger single target slow and good aoe slow, but you don't need them.She still is the queen of CC though, as the only high/max risk CC that didn't use her was #0? We will have to see with CC#4 coming soon though.
>>305199It's not lacking there, I've got Eyja and Blaze enacting cleansing. I only want the shiny medal so I'm not going nuts on Risks.>>305201I like the skin and animations a LOT more than her normal one, I just need to conserve for reruns and future ones so an extra one is a lot. Already made the rough decision to pass on Lappy's costume even though I like her and use her a lot. Right now I'm just struggling with Patriot even though I do have Amiya E2.
>>305230That's fair, I imagine we will likely see Ange again soon one way or another.I'm hoping my luck on Thorn's banner will be good, I'm only sitting on like 60~ rolls right now, as for patriot I don't have any suggestions as I actually still haven't touched ep 7 yet.
>>305234She does seem very common. Maybe I shouldn't use my certs on her, that's a big drain and I've gone down a bit in income on them due to hunting THRM-EX copies.I want to ignore Thorns but I really want Jaye. I know it's inefficient for upgrades to use sanity on story chapters but I did want to see it, I save CMs as my emergency OP storage though. Patriot just mauls everything in his way, I might need to crack out Specter.
>>305239Eh, if you don't have anyone else you want from Certs I don't see the issue there. I bought Eyja because I had shit fucking luck rolling her and I just wanted to have her.I'm mostly after Jaye too, Thorns would be nice to have since he's another self sustaining unit, especially for the rougelite.Me not doing ch7 yet is less sanity efficiency and more focusing on events because I wanted to get as much as I could out of them for rewards, I'm figuring once I'm done with HoSF re-run or during CC I will get ch 7 done, plus there's plenty of outfits coming in the future so I need more OP too.
>>305245I bought Eyja as well. I want Ch'en. About 450 certs.I figured, that's mostly what I meant by efficiency due to the juiceboxes. At least my rock supply is high now. I'm just fishing up red certs right now.
>>305247Well you could buy out the headhunting tickets and still have enough leftover to buy a 6* so that's up to you there.Ah fair, I'm still somewhat in the middle of trying to get some upgrades done for Blade just to try things, I really want to get Weedy and Lisk done if I can just to see how high I can go with no pot and lowish levels on everyone, though I would need to get Elysium done too shite.
>>305262I am saving for later for the most part, W/Weedy were very nice overall so I'm not too down in rolls.I've got a nice Elysium but not E2ing for the foreseeable future because I don't have mats for masteries and his talent seems meh.
>>305296Fair, I like rolling so you are going to catch me rolling on most banners sadly. W/eedy's banner got me both of them but I tossed a solid 90~ rolls overall so it wiped most of my savings out.That's fair, once I get Ceobe promoted and get her mastery started I'm going to take stock of everything I have and see if I can just bumrush Weedy, Liskarm and Elysium to do memes in Blade or if I'm just going to do my before plan which was base slaves.
>>305301I don't roll much really outside of certain banners.I don't have much of a plan for blade. I just E1 most ops for the base.
>>305306Fair, I roll on standards when there's someone I want and the chance of a dupe is fairly low but at this point it's pretty much just going to be rolling on the new banners.I need to E2 a few for the base to have it 'finished' for who we have right now, but it's honestly not really high priority, just something I want to do really.
>>305309I kind of wanted to do Texas for that.
>>305311Texas is worth it for gameplay too honestly, if you have Bag she's a fantastic instant drop stun bomb.
>>305313Eh, no bag unfortunately.
>>305325Yeah it's mostly for the help she gets from Exu.
>>305019it just means the current banner is gonna leak a little into the new event
>>304996Nah we have our banner extended for a week, that's our compensationGoing to be up during CC too, jewstar strikes again>>304999Kill yourself CCP supporter
>>305737Suffering. I can't wait to have extra time to get none of the rate ups.
getting these materials for elite 2 is real rough
>>305972who you e2ing
>>305988i want to elite 2 magallan she will be my first one. maybe it gets easier to get materials later but i am new so it seems like a lot
>>306021not bad not bad at all
>>306021Based. Maggie is great. Meta yet soulful, and a sign of an intelligent doctor.
>>306021Maggie is nice but doing her mastery sucked with how expensive it was overall.
Original-grade (2* nonspecific unit) tokens don't actually exist right? I've only seen general tokens of 4* and higher.
>>306493It's super easy to max everything less than 5* through recruitment.
>>306499I know, but it strikes me as odd that the item even is supposed to exist. I've never seen it given even in CN.
I am going to rush getting Weedy and Elysium promoted, and then also Ceobe for mastery to try and meme on Blade. Oh boy.
>>306540Ceobe S1? Allowed me to clear 1 max risk daily on transport hub where the drunkards managed to even onetap my gravel
>>306544Naw, S2 for Ceobe. I do eventually want to m3 her s1 cuz it looks good for memes.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrmuxLlkkOgLobby theme a fucking bop.
>>306499Unless they are robots
>>306648Even that's not hard, the robot tag isn't as rare as 5-6* tags and you can roll robots without the tag.
>>306499>implyingMy Gitano still is not max pot.
>>306673You must be doing it wrong. Cutter and Utage are the only 4* I don't have at max pot.
>>306677Gitano's infamous for being difficult to max pot, but that's just how it is with 4*s that have no guaranteed tags. I'm not doing anything different from any other player. It took me several months to snatch the last Vigna I needed even while picking every DPS + Vanguard/DP-Rec tag I could. Now Estelle will be the hardest to max 4* in the game given the pool update, for new players at least.
>>306673I dunno man, I have every 4* in the game right now and the only ones not at max pot somehow are Beehunter and Podenco.
>>306679Lucky you, must roll on most banners. Podenco at least is gacha only though, and Beehunter just got added recently.
>>306680As long as the banner has someone I want without too high of a risk of dupes I do tend to roll, though W/eedy's banner really finished off some things like Myrtles last pot for me too.
>>306681I'm somehow still not maxed with Myrtle yet I have max pot Elysium. I just want her talent upgrade
>>306682I didn't get Myrtle for like a month after she first released somehow so. Elysium I only have at like three pot or so? Kept getting off banner 5*'s there.
>>306684It took me quite a while for my first Myrtle.
>>306685Eyyyy brothers in bad luck! I just hope it doesn't fuck me over getting Jaye too hard, even though he's getting tossed int he pile of "people I'm not upgrading yet" anyway.
>>306686Yeah same here mate, might just have to hope for him later if I don't get him here since I don't want to go all in with rolls for a 4*.
>>306688Yeah, if I get Jaye by the time I get the 5* I'm just going to stop, Thorns be dammed, if I don't then I'm going to in till I get something nice or run out of my pitiful 30~ rolls or so.
>>306692Same here except for the last bit. Might not even go to 5* if I get him before that, I can't see much use for Andreana since I've got both the other LR snipers.
>>306695I'm banking more on getting a different 5* really but I agree with you there, I'm pretty set on snipers so I'm not going to be upgrading too many more of them really.
>>306696Yeah I think they're pretty well covered here.If anything I'd like a fancy defender to give Liskarm and Cuora a little rest even though I don't use defenders a lot.
>>306702Well I do have two more snipers I want to work on: Platinum and W, otherwise not even the new 6* interests me that much.It's kinda funny you say Lisk cuz I just E2'd her in prep for dumb Blade shit, though my most used defender is by far Saria.
>>306705I did W, would do BP next.I don't see the value of E2'ing my Liskarm right now due to the increased DP cost in exchange for a small amount of res.
>>306708Yeah W seems worth it, just others I want to work on first since I don't really use AoE snipers often.Well I have Bag, Myrtle M3'd and I plan on getting Elysium to e2 and mastery so 2 dp more really isn't that big of a deal for me at this point, plus it gives her more stats and I'm planning on doing mastery on her first skill too.
>>306712She's pretty good, not actually because of her slowass attacks but rather because of the minelaying and cluster bomb skills. The minelayer (S2) in particular is excellent.I'm the fellow who just got Siege above so I have her as my focus right now.
>>306719As expected really. She's going to be handy for just general map stuff when I do eventually upgrade her but most stuff doesn't really pose much of a issue as it stands anyway.Fair there honestly. I tend to work on operators in a group for the next overall goal I want to do, be it memes or cc.
boy i sure love picking through multiple pages of mountain fanarts of varying eroticism to find fanart of other characters
>>307265where are you searching? are you using english names or jp names of characters
>>307283How much you want to bet he's on deviantart or something too, I feel like I barely see any mountain art on Pixiv.
>>307283>>307293Danbooru with just the Arknights tag. There's one uploader who likes to dump a bunch of Mountain and/or Hung fanart all at once every so often.
>>307265I hate him so much
>>307300Ah, can't do much there I guess unless it lets you block tags with a account. I personally just go through Pixiv, check if there's new Shaw art then see if there's anything interesting in the first few pages of the arknights tag.
>>307304I also go through Pixiv and Twitter regularly but I find that generally Danbooru has a higher average quality, plus someone usually goes in and translates any text that might be there.
>>307307That's also fair, it is extra steps to put stuff up there so people will mostly just do things they think is worth the trouble, but I do like the not bad but not great art you can find on the actual sites themselves too.Also makes me look at them and go "man I should learn how to draw"
>>307313>"man I should learn how to draw"it's more trouble than its worth, and it makes you appreciate lower quality artwork less.
>>307313Pixiv is best for that kind of "mid-range" fanart. I just wish it would tell me filesizes more easily.
>>307317I learned how to do 3D stuff and subsequently stopped doing it because fuck all that industry so I've already ruined portions of stuff for me because I know a lot of the tricks behind stuff and I can generally spot funky animation like bad IK.>>307318Data is cheap so I honestly don't really care about file sizes, I just need to find a good solution for organizing my files so I'm not just scrolling through stuff till I find what I'm looking for again.
>>307320I just wanna know if I can post the fullsize on here without finding out through trial and error.
>>307322I just go through the trial and error. I don't post images super often unless someone brings up Shaw or someone else I feel like posting pictures of.
>>307307I always just use Pixiv now, used to use SC (shameful I know). Translated pics on boorus are ok and tagging is better so I use them for stuff not on pixiv, but they tend to be worse overall in quality and just get pics a week behind if they're on pixiv.Twitter is unusable. Not even going to try that crap anymore.
>Pulled silence from a Senior Operator tagIs she good? i mostly use Shining for heals
>>307334Yeah the drone helps in stages with limited ranged deployment tiles
heres your silverash bro
How many hours until the event/Thorns banner?
>>307494Also, is there maintenance at server reset? What crumby timing, I'll have to burn my sanity today and might not have enough for my dailies tomorrow.
>>307501apparently there was a manual app redownload.there was some tweet about it
>>307503wait we got to uninstall and redownload the game?
So with CC being 2-3~ weeks away how confident are you guys feeling in getting to risk 18 the first week?
Is shark a yandere or just generally crazy
>>307882Just crazy due to outside factors and/or infection due to circumstances we are unaware of yet.I imagine eventually we will find out more about the Abyssal Hunters and what's going on in the sea in the main story.
>>307882She was imprisoned and tortured, which was implied to have been due to the Aegir's corrupt leadership. Her regular personality is a gentle and polite young woman.
Server's up and 5 OP as maint comp.
>>3076760I'm stupid, max I've ever gotten in CC is 14 and that's because the lava tiles cheese shit for you.
I want all the swimsuit outfits
>>307970I still belib in you.>>307979I bought Plats cuz it's the only one I really care about.
man fighting pompeii now with stronger units feels strange as it melts so easily I still remember how the bastard put me through hell the first time around
>>308022I'm looking forward to seeing how hard I can bully him this time, I know near the end of the event last time I got my Exu to a level where with Warfarin they just killed him on spawn.I do need to figure out how I want to do my trust farm on OF-7/8/F4, I know Maggie can mostly solo the latter two but I only have 4 of the ops that get bonus trust anyway.
>>306725Well I got Andreana immediately on the first roll so I'm stopping here, I guess I'll leave Jaye for another day. Good luck mate.
>>308132I dumped 50 rolls in as a bit of yolo move and got Thorns at the end, a max pot Jaye and exactly zero Andreana's.This does mean that depending on when exactly we get Blade I'm going to have to re-figure who I'm working on cuz I only really need to do like 3~ weeks of farming before the shit from the current event to get everything I need for what I want to do for Blade done.
>>308179nice, enjoy sushiman
>>308180I'm planning on it. Ideally before blade I get Weedy E2'd and s3 to m3, Ceobe S2 to m3, Elysium to E2 and s2 m3'd, Saria's S3 m3'd to bring her to a m9 and Ange's s2 to m3 to bring her to m6 overall.Then after for the rougelite I ideally want to get Sushiman e2 and m3'd, Thorn's E2 and s3 m3'd, and Scene E2'd and s2 m3'd.I can't think of anyone else for the rougelite that super matters and even if I don't get them done I should be able to beat it anyway.
>>308185I don't mastery a ton of stuff so that sounds like a lot, but it'll probably pay off. Don't really know how the roguelite works.
>>308206Well the first bit for Blade should be doable, rougelite maybe E2s at best but no m3s.Rougelite is basically just a bog standard rougelite, if you have played slay the spire imagine that but instead of picking cards you pick operators you own.
>>308207it's "rogue"I don't think I'll be able to kill Faust in time actually. I had an irritating time of it even on the stage with a set party (even though the stage itself is easy, he's always the last enemy alive).
>>308209Whoops my bad. I dunno why I feel like the U comes first.I'm pretty sure there's week 1 clears of Blade with all 3*s except for like, Eyja.I belib in you.
how is jaye? his 3dp eating kinda puts me off
>>308215Rouge is a word too so probably that.I hope it doesn't just turn into "fock I need Liskarm E2" in the end.
>>308218Hyper unga bunga strong to compensate for his maintenance cost.Easily solos several bosses.
>>308220You absolutely won't need E2 Lisk. As long as you have like, Eyja or Ceobe or can borrow one and have some of the other overall meta units I'm sure you will be fine.
>>308218Strong enough to kill normal Frostnova or Skullshatterer without any support.He has high offense and extremely powerful healing that's better than enmity units (including Hellagur), and his skills last as long as he's out. If the enemy does not oneshot him he'll probably end up beating it.
Holy shit I got him on the 4th pull. That means in my last ~60 pulls I picked up Thorns, Suzuran, W x3, and Weedy x2.
>Event rerun is only 10 days>Thorns banner is 3 weeksWhat are we getting after this rerun?
>>307676100%. The map is clearable risk 18 by fucking 3*s, I'll definitely be able to go 18+ week 1, don't know how at the moment, but I will.
>>308223I've got Eyja.Just trying to figure out how many times I need to hit event stages
Penguinchads rise up
I feel like i cheesed the volcano slug by holding it in place with fast redeploy and robotters while my ifrit and a W i borrowed wailed on it
>Vigna costume didn't rerun
>>308630I wish I had penguin
>>308630I need to bring her to max level one day here.
feeding the penguin to the orca
The new story scene they added to the event has made me actively hate Thorns and his gary stu ass.
>>309332is it that bad? I havent watched it yet
>>309342In summery;>Everyone he meets likes him.>effortlessly stops a pickpocket, returns the stolen property, and goes to the thief's hideout to take out the group and the ringleader. All in about 30 minutes.>Meets Ifrit and Cutter working their barbecue stand, knows in advance that the charcoal they're using is damp, and will explode. Then goes off to get pepper for them before anyone says a word.>Goes off and meets the singers in the metal band (don't remember the name) at the beach. A literal eldritch monstrosity shows up out of the sea, and Thorns decides to fight it for some reason despite the singer telling him that's retarded.>Cutscene abruptly ends
>>309355i thought the lore about the sea people was cool
>>309332I disliked him since that one illustration of him and mountain on a couch
>>309355wheres the part where he fights ninjas in space while his harem of all the female ops and the doctor is there saying how cool he is
>>309390gotta get that trust up to read about his space harem of robot ninja maids.
>>309391I think his promotion bio tells when he was created in a underground lab by the rat king but he broke out and decided to fight reunion because they killed his first love interest
>>309355He just came off as a massive dork to me. But I get where you are coming from.
>>309362>I disliked him since that one illustration of him and mountain on a couchpost it?
>>309478why would I save it if I disliked itit's official art go look it up, it came out near the release of the Mansfield Break event
large orca thighs
>>309482i wonder if it'll be in the anniversary artbook
I think i will E2 Nightmare.Thoughts?
>>309512Thought: You didn't get Weedy.
>>309515Then I can't really see any reason to E2 Nightmare unless you are somehow trying to bet that we will have a CC that can be abused through movement true damage like Blade can, but will have a outright ban on specialists.
>>309512For what reason?
>>309562She's one of the only other casters i have apart from amiya and ifrit
>>309575Those were all I needed until Eyja was finally in the shop.
>>309575It would be better to invest in Amiya than someone that does the same thing as another unit you have, but worse and needs someone else to actually enable it fully.
I am a sort of lazy player who logs in every now and again, and as a simple retard I need help on who to E2. I have several six stars but the investment in time is huge, so I don't know who I should try to E2. The six star list is: Chen Siege Shining Ifrit  - I have at max level E1 so I just need mats for E2Hoshiguma Exusiai  - I have been working on her and she is at like lvl 70 E1, but I have a long way to go to get her to 80 and plus missing mats.Other than the two mentioned they are all blank with no investment. Which character is someone who can help me clear the most? I focused on Ifrit at first but I found she can't be used in all maps, and I started on Exusiai, but I don't know if she's going to be the best operator, I just thought she looked cool. Also when is Rosmontis supposed to be released? Will she have the same pity system that W had? Heh, I hope so.
Wait, there's new event lore?>>309732Ifrit and Exu are your best dps operators there. If you find your ground units lacking, then Siege would be your next best bet honestly, since Chen is weird and hoshi is a defender. Also Ifrit can basically be used on any map that doesn't outright ban her, just expand your brain. It may seem like a lot of investment, but honestly you'll probably get them all e2'd and m3'd at some point anyway.Yes, Rosmontis is pretty much the same system as W's banner, as to when, no one fucking knows.
can someone explain to me what thorn and aya are talking about at the end of the event story? i am new and it confused me. are they mermaid people or something
>>309743Aren't they Aegir? Those are the sea creature people like Weedy.
>>309753so was she just trying to remind him of his time living in the ocean or something?
>>309740Going to second this guy, Ifrit can be used anywhere, even her hitting one tile is fine.
is thrre going to be a new banner soon when skadis leaves?
>>309994If you mean the current standard with Skadi/Ceobe as the focus it's going to be replaced by >>305069 in under a hour.
Is mostina good
>>310097Can't say I'd recommend her over other aoe casters like Ifrit.There is use for her s2 being such wide reaching stun but it doesn't really have a great cycle on it so the uses there are limited too.
>>310099rip, already have ifrit sojust leave her unlevelled like my skadi?
>>310103Pretty much. Ifrit is honestly just too good of a general unit so she breaks through the main limitations of the archetype while Mostima falls to them mostly.
>>310097Mostima is niche but her slow talent and stun is rather useful for CC sometimes, and caster sp support.
Do i go for my full talent Ceylon or my Silence
>>310120Silence no fucking contest.
>>310120Silence, Ceylon is shit, possibly the worst event welfare.Silence's drone is far more effective than Ceylon's gimped wider range heals.
whats the cutoff to be considered elite material? i noticed in the base there is bonuses for any materials 50% and then elite materials 75%
>>310430I'm guessing like tier 3 or hard to come by mats
who's arknights equivalent to jr
I feel like summons like robotters shouldnt count towards total unit cost as much as they do
When i get my Aniv book, should i just do it picture by picture unboxing, or make a video?
So in the last five day's I've E2'd three ops and done three m3s and now I'm being limited by my lack of vanguard chips and I still have to care about the current event. Suffering.
>>310580Scan it after box
>>310588The current event is extremely short and has zero infinite farm stages, you'll be done soon
>>310605Pretty much, all I have left is clearing the gachapons but I will still have another couple weeks of farming just mats aside from getting 4 more vangaurd chips, so I'm hoping I can actually make it in time for week 2 of Blade for memes.
>>310608I have all the VG chips I need for Siege but zero catalysts. I think I have enough red certs though, not sure.
>>310603Uh ohI dont have a scanner
>>310613Printer? I guess just take pictures, although phone pics are usually kind of fuzzy. I'm looking forward to seeing it anyway.
>>310615i feel like getting frames for the posters bc i dont want them damaged by just sticking them on my wall
>>310610I have plenty of red certs cuz I tend to farm those when the event needs me to run so many supply stages.
>>310657Yeah I had to run the parts stage there but I got some certs in.Also fuck Clue 1 I just had 2 clues expire because no one has clue oneThe new Clue 4
>>310660Ah yeah, I'm always sitting on a overabundance of parts, all my dorms are 5k ambiance so I just buy sets that I think look nice now.Clue 3 is the big missing link now it feels, mostly cuz everyone uses sadcat in the factory.
>>310657Yeah same, you get everything else from supply stages passively in large amounts unless you are masterying heaps of skills.
>>310665I buy all the limited furniture.Clue 3 is eh, I reserve Jessica sometimes but Clue 1 is empty on 2/3rds of my friendlist.
>>310668I'm currently sitting on 51 book 3's, 217 book 2's and 529 book 1's, so it makes more sense for me to just convert them up as I need, especially when things like pic related happens.>>310670I skip the limited ones I don't like, current example being the siesta beach hut.It's actually about even for who has clue 1 vs 3 right now on my Fl but I often see people with every clue but 3.
>>310679The beach set goes really well with other sets though. I made a custom room designed after a stage in Hitman using the parts. I can send some Clue 3's if you need one.
>>310680That's fair, it's really down to personal taste as I like a lot more of the "practical" sets. Nah, I view clues and clue parties as a bonus overall as I can generally clear the store out of all the discount good every day regardless of my own parties.
>>310684Eh, yeah. Always good to buy the wall and floor at least though. I usually do too but it is frustrating having clues expire. I don't have a huge FL so it's mostly a smattering of about 60-90 a day.
>>310688Fair but like, I'm still using the fucking pizza parlor set.True on the clues but you get the points when you accept them anyway, so if they expire, they expire.
>>310702I use the digital screen background from the beach as a villain/ceo's office backdrop. I like the pizza set, but people keep getting stuck on the furniture.All my Clue 7's just expired so Elysium is getting overtime.
Any tips on defeating the volcano slug? in the ticket stage.... seems ridiculous desuonly beat it in the main stage with a borrowed eyja
>>310708use snipers, it has shit defense and high res2 healers and a bulky res unit like Matterhorn should be enough to hold it back.
>>310712Ty. I dont use matterhorn, but would croissant or nearl do? I also have shining e2 so she buffs defense pretty hard.
>>310715Pompeii deals Arts damage so Def is useless. Shining + one decent AoE medic to mitigate the burn effects should be enough. I didn't use Matterhorn either because I don't like him, I used Vigna. It won't be enough for you though unless she's very highly upgraded. Use something with res like Mousse then.
>>310707Oh yeah that sounds fun, but honestly I rarely actually look at the dorms straight up which is why I haven't done a ton with them still.>>310708As the other guy said, Snipers are the way to go.If you have Exu her at like e2 level 30 on s3 with no mastery and a Wafarin on her s2 with no mastery should be able to kill it as soon as it gets in range.Sharing a picture of your team can help too because many e2s vs no e2s can change things.
>>310715Oh also yes Nearl should be fine, forgot that. She has extra healing on top so it makes up for her lack of res.>>310718Same here but it's fun to mess around with them sometimes. Ch'en's Office in particular is a very good set to stick on others. Last time I fucked around with them was just sticking the alt menu items in the Lungmen Restaurant set.
>>310725Oh yeah, I have been thinking about mucking around and making them look more interesting and in a more sensible order instead of the food area being on the lowest level for some reason.
>>310726I have it as the restaurant at the top, Lethanien Nights as 3rd, W's as 4th. 2 was custom but I changed it back to normal beach with the Abyssal trident just for this event.4th is the one I just switch around, it was that Seven something restaurant before.
>>310730Yeah I have it in: Ch'en's office, Music Rehearsal Room, Penguin Safehouse and then the Pizza Resteruant.I have 8 complete unused themes so I honestly have plenty to actually work with here, plus 12k more parts if I need individual bits.
>>310734I wonder what order Rhodes is entered from. Maybe the restaurant being on the first floor makes more sense than a high one. Or it's effectively the basement/belly of the ship.
>>310737Top down is the only way that makes sense to me honestly, you have reception and the control center at the very top, the doctors actual office on the same side but two floors down for decent safety along with the training room right underneath too.Plus these would likely be constructed a lot like how ships are with engineering and other loud stuff being closer to the bottom anyway and living quarters overall much higher up but unlikely actually on the surface even in Rhodes Island case when you get shots of the dorm rooms in stories.
>>310739It is a land cruiser though, so I guess that there might be ways to end from both.
>>310743Likely but not ways you would want anyone but maintenance and emergency staff going into.Other than Rhodes these are all designed to be able to join together as one massive block so I imagine the edges of most of these things would be incredibly dangerous to be moving around on when they aren't joined.
>>310745They join? I thought it was a smaller model Amiya got for free from Rim B where it was just a singular transporter.
>>310748Did you not read the darknights story? Rhodes Island is a ancient land ship of unknown origins that's been basically jerry-rigged to work again, it also has a spooky whale skeleton in it so there's something deeper to it than we know still.Pic related is official art and you can see it has no buildings ontop of it at all, it's a totally enclosed system.While events in Cherbourg, Lungmen, and Wolumonde all take place on "modern" land ships which can join together and separate as need be, I know it's mentioned in the Cherborug related stuff and I'm sure there's a loading screen that also shows a city separating.
Wait is Pramanix better than Silence?
>>310754Elaborate. Pram isn't even a healer.
>>310755SHE'S NOT???oh i'm retarded. I heard she's good though and i'm unsure if i should invest into her before e2'ing weedy or silence
>>310756Pram is a supporter, a debuffer at that.She's mostly replaced by Shamare when it comes to debuffing, there's better options for Arts debuffing and Shamare has a better uptime and placement on the def + atk debuff while only losing 10% from the def down.What are you E2ing for, because if someone doesn't fill a hole you have for something like CC but you do have a unit that will, that might be a better choice.
>>310751I skipped 3 parts of it, but the story was difficult to follow and somewhat disjointed regardless. I usually read a summary after because sometimes it's very unclear as to what's happening in the event stories, such as Children of Ursus.Pretty cool picture though. I know about mobile cities joining/separating though, it's explained as the first way they avoid catastrophes. It's also mentioned somewhere that Wolumonde's ruined city parts were merged into the main country's Lethanien cityship, effectively ending Wolumonde's existence as a settlement.
>>310765That's fair, it doesn't help that there isn't a official timeline of when things happen but most of DM was pre-amenia doctor, likely nearly 10 years before getting the doctor out of cryo-sleep based on Amiya's appearance then.CoU as far as I'm aware took place during the initial Reunion uprising in Chernbourg.Ah I misunderstood that part then, Rhodes is unique in that it's a singular ship with no way to join others other than just riding along I would assume.
Does pot 3 on Maggie give all her drones -4 seconds to redeployment time?
>>310769I know DM is backstory for the most part, it's just hard to tell what's going on. Is Theresa really dead? Is the thing Theresis tapped on her or a clone? Sometimes it's hard to even tell who's stabbing who.That makes sense, I thought it was just from Rim.
>>310771Now that we have chapter 7; Yes. There's no real way to take it otherwise. I'm not sure what the Theresis bit is though, I only remember him in passing from DM and nothing about him tapping on anything?Well the entire story is the standard doing shit behind the backs of others constantly so it's gonna get muddles till we get some of the more clear cut explanations.
>>310782He discusses with Confessarius about a container holding an unconscious female sarkaz that looks like Theresa and says something about the real Sarkaz queen awakening.It's just the way it's told. It intentionally leaves things extremely vague through the dialogue.
Farewell Doctor. See you when CC starts.
is nightmare worth getting with 45 yellow certificates if i have 126? im new and just curious if i should be spending these or not
>>310877No, she's very gimmicky and arguably worse than Amiya.Use them either on very good 6*s that come in the shop, a 5* you really need (e.g. Red), or save ~250 and bulk buy the summon ticket pack.
>>310880use this to determine if there's a 4* or 5* tag combo in recruitment to max cert incomehttps://aceship.github.io/AN-EN-Tags/akhr.html
>>310882oh this is useful. i have been trying to use shift or fast deploy for the same reasons but this will help a lot. thank you
>>310878Should be 258 to buy out the headhunting tickets.It's 38 rolls so I'd say it's worth it.
>>310892It's worth it if you've got all the first 15 month operators you want, otherwise I'd be saving for a guaranteed useful 6* operator.
>>310892Indeed, which was why I listed it. However, I prefer the 6* given this game's rates. The tickets are what I consider the absolute desperation item.
>>310915I meant first 3-4 months, because those will be available in the store in the first 15 months.
I chose Emperor, does anyone have a link for the other twitter post things that you get for the other bands?
>>310430>>310465Everything in the upgrade materials tab in the workshop are elite materials. The any materials skill works for everything in the workshop.
>>310925thank you! i guess sometimes the wording confuses me in this game. >>310923i picked the green one? with a bag on her head. i can upload screenshots once i get the last one from the gacha if someone else doesnt get back to you before then.
>>310926>the one with the bag on her headlmao
>>310917Pretty much, I have all the 6*s I want that's currently in the game so the tickets are worth better chances at getting upcoming 6*'s for me.>>310916That's also fair honestly. I've had fairly good luck with the gacha so I can't really comment.
I like to use Thorns' base art because I can pretend he's a cute brown tomboy when I can see the ponytail.
>>310959Fag lmao you're gay for brown twinks lmao
