I got Meteorite with my first roll as well, so I'm really happy with it.

The thing is, I'm calling her an aoe caster because that's essentially her role.

Yea. No idea why I talked like that. I guess my point was that she's actually not even as good and reliable as true AoE caster.

Also honestly getting Eyja and Ifrit isn't that difficult the longer you play. I have almost all of the 6 stars in the game and I don't use OP to summon and only use the orundum that I get from the annihilation stages + from the monthly card.

Yea, I can see it. I'm doing exactly the same thing and I already have plenty of operators and like around six, 6 stars. Part of it is also that AK is incredibly generous and allows you simply to buy operators or upgrade them using tokens, something unthinkable in any other gacha. I myself bought Eyja from shop and I already got so much mileage from using her.

And yeah, the reason Leizi just isn't that good is cause Lava can do the job just fine.

Honestly if she costed like around 24 DP she wouldn't be half bad as a ST/AoE caster hybrid. 30-32 DP is just way too much for not even proper AoE caster.

So after CC, Grani's event was like a walk in the park. I've already beaten everything and can now just focus on mindless farming. I guess this way you could say we actually got 1 week break.

I got Franka and Leizi via the pity on one banner each. I also got Beehunter. How good is Leizi?

Leizi is an aoe caster so not that good honestly. Her skill is really interesting, but there's never really a need for aoe casters, especially when Eyja and Ifrit are just so much better than every other caster. You can still use her if you want, but in terms of whether you'll ever need her for stages, it's gonna be a 'never' for an answer.

Well AoE casters can be useful, especially when you have neither Eyja or Ifrit. The thing is Leizi isn't actually AoE caster. She's single caster that bounces her attacks thrice. Initially I liked her gimmick and thought it could be fun to use, but it really is very unreliable since enemies must be at most 1 tile apart and it doesn't bounce back to enemies it already hit. But honestly her biggest drawback is that despite being technically single target caster, her cost is almost as high as true AoE casters, so honestly you're better of just using actual AoE caster like Lava that would do her job much better and she's just 3 star you can max with ease.

I got Zima from 4 single rolls on Skadi's banner, so that was really nice. Both Beeswax and Chiave looked interesting so I wouldn't mind to drop either or ideally both, so I did 10 roll immediately, but it was sadly a meh min roll. Didn't even get any new 4 stars or ones I didn't max yet, outside of 1 copy of Mousse. My 5 star was Platinum which was still nice. Rate up really hates me.

Also so that new certificate is only for rerun stuff people already got before? Sucks, cos stuff from it really looked nice. Welp at least got 1000 Orundum from maintenance compensation.

OMG there’s an anime for this?!

IKR!? And adaptation is really good too! It's faithful to a fault and adopts every page and dialogue so they don't cut out anything from manga or add unnecessary changes. Voice acting and presentation really enhances the story too. And music is really good as well! I especially love OP and ED.

Bruh wut?

Best show of the season. I was so invested after episode 4 and couldn't wait week to see what happens next, I checked if there's manga, there was so I binge read all 54 chapters in 2 days. I talked about it in anime thread but nobody seemed to give a fuck.

Also the next store has Scene, who's considered one of the stronger - if not the strongest - welfare operators in the game, so it might be good that you didn't spend all your currency this time.

Well I did spend all my currency. But so far in both CCs I was able to easily get all copies of welfares and tokens, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Oh. That's a bit unfortunate but currency does save for the next CC so you could spend your leftover currency for the next CC's shop.

Och. Since I figured it'd go to waste anyway I bought those 2 banners I didn't get since I maxed out all 4 dormitories so I don't care about furniture anymore...

Now that I think about it, it does make sense. I was supposed to ask about it before, if the fact the CC shop and training grounds were still available after first CC ended and if it was bug or something, but I guess since they're never removed, the currency would be carried over. Och well, I'll know for next time.

I think perhaps if you had more time, you could have beaten risk 18. Nevertheless, I think it's still good to beat what you can given the ops you have.

I did pretty much not touch permanent map for a week or so, since I assumed I can't go higher than 10, so I didn't even try, but still I invested in a lot of operators but most aren't even max lvl E1 or skill lvl 7, so I couldn't/had much harder time with pulling off some strategies, since my operators dealt less dmg/weren't as durable. So even if I took it more seriously, idk how higher I could go, but still thanks nonetheless.

random posted:

Iffy is horrendously strong when you can find a good lane for her but her quirky attack range limits her applicability.

Yes, I really like her gimmick and always try to find ways to use her. After all my go to operator is Executor, so I'm used to clunky setups and building team around single operator. I used her on perma map to defend right side, but she only works when you don't detonate generator so I couldn't use her once risks demanded using it.

...I think my first E2 6*s were Iffy and Nightingale actually. Both came in very handy getting that full clear on Anni3.

Mine were Eyja and Exu obviously. I'm currently working on E2 Ifrit as well.

Lol. That's bs. Since I did the second week challenges hour before event ended and was rushing to try getting some higher risks on perma map I totally forgot to spend my points in shop. I wanted to do it now, but turns out they removed shop already and only left tokens, banners, skins etc. Good thing I was spending my currency immediately and only had 230 now, but still I'm annoyed cos I wanted to buy as many Trihydrates/Pentaydrates as I could...

Also I figured Kroos/Fang thing. They both resets. I just forgot Gravel's base skill is better and gives 35%, hence it seemed like Fang wasn't resetting, when in fact she was as well.

Ok, after actually giving it a shot I managed to do all challenges from first week. For no casters/guards I had to use support Ange and I really liked using her (mostly because she's so strong), so now she's next operator I'd really want to have. Didn't have time to figure out ones from second week, so I just used guides. So only thing I didn't do was doing more than risk 10. I tried risk 12 and I should be able to pull it off, but I didn't have enough time left and I made too many mistakes. And I wouldn't be able to do more than that anyway since in order to do higher risks you needed to have SilverAsh, Eyja, Ange and/or Saria, so since I only have Eyja and didn't E2 Saria, I wasn't able to do it even with support. I saw you could pull it off with lower rarities if you had Deepcolor or Mayer, but I didn't invest in either yet. I feel like ultimately this CC was harder than last one if you don't have certain operators, because they're crucial. Last CC was much more flexible and I was able to do it without any E2s. Still, in the end I had fun and did everything I could. I really wish I had enough time to E2 more operators and do their masteries, but hopefully I'll be better prepared next time. Also I kinda changed my mind about SilverAsh, Blaze and other "overpowered" operators, since I have no issue using other 6 stars like Exusiai or Eyja, who are equally strong. Now I kinda wonder if maybe I made mistake picking Ifrit over SilverAsh, but she still helped me a lot.

P sure that was also mentioned in the survey page itself but can't check it again after filling it.

I thought I read everything, but maybe I only glanced over it. Either way, I thought so, but good to get some confirmation. Thanks.

Just to be clear you're supposed to use the eight digit string of numbers under your name in the main menu.

Yes. Tbh I had no idea it existed until survey mentioned it. I'm pretty sure I wrote it down correctly, but since I got nothing maybe I didn't.

The fact that CC#2's banner will run during the rerun means Yostar is just doing whatever and we don't what to expect.

Honestly I don't like the implication of that. I really wish we won't suddenly go MR route.

Btw, Grani event rerun was just a month ago in CN.

Yea, I noticed how weird it was for running a rerun already, when we didn't even reached our first year anniversary.

For example, from ten orirock concentration to just two now.

Kk. So it's just less stuff in shop. Sucks, but I guess it's not end of the world. Thanks.

Drops are still the same and so are the high drop rates so still best time to farm loxic kohl and grindstone.

Yea I saw and it's perfect time to stack up back on Loxic Kohl, since I used up everything I farmed during AF.

I forget if it is random or due to clue visitation. If someone visits your base, the op they have as their secretary will appear in your base and that may trigger the line you hear.

Oh, that would make sense. I figured it's just random then, but visitors' assistants make more sense.

Something must have happened cause that wasn't the case when that was posted here. I hope the artist is doing okay.

Och. Yea, it's a reason to worry if user suddenly limited tweets visibility.

Managed to get Asbestos, though I used a lot more of my rolls than I wanted and ended up wasting my W pity. My last roll ended up being really good too so I really shouldn't complain lol

Wow ;O That's a amazing roll!

I was pretty lucky too, since I spend all my Orundum rolling for Eyja, I wanted to save now, so I was only rolling single rolls for guarantee. On Asbestos/Tsukinogi banner I got FEater with first roll, so I'm not complaining here, since I couldn't get her during Eyja banner and I wanted her to complete shift memes. Then when rolling on Exu banner I got her with second roll (probably thanks to pity), so that was amazing. Also got Platinum from shop I was interested in, so that was also nice.

After Wolumonde I was burnt out and wanted to take a break (I really wanted them to give us 1 week break), so I didn't touch CC for first day and only started playing first rotating map when there was only few hours left. I managed to beat it at risk 4, but I run out of time to clear it with risk 8. I could increase risk 1 by 1, but it'd take longer and I figured if I just beat it on 8 I'll clear all rewards in 1 go. I was really close to beating it up run out of time and switched to guides too late so I didn't finish it before stage changed. Rest I beat easily, cos it was all old maps so either I remembered how I beat it last time or now with better operators was able to easier to beat it myself. One 1 hand it lets me be done with daily maps faster, but on the other I was kinda disappointed most maps were reused. Most risks were much easier than last time, but some gave me more trouble. Only other one I didn't beat was Area 59 Ruins, because I again got to it when I had little time left and was too late to switch to guide. I beat the drone map myself when it showed again though.

Didn't need Guardknights for today's daily. Glad I E2'd Zima. Nice to have a tanky vanguard tho the initial reason was so she can be E2 with Istina.

I used E1 lvl 40 Courier (I have E1 lvl 55 Zima, but figured I'll use Courier cos he costs less, it didn't really matter that much though). It was pretty fun stalling throwing solders with Gravel/Projekt Red combo. My strategy was to just make them go as long as possible and let them die on their own, because I remembered from last CC that I couldn't put sniper on tile above them, cos they could reach there. I only learned you could after I already beat the stage... Well when it showed up next time beating it was just much easier, cos both time I took tiles risk cos it never removed tiles I was using. I recorded my day 1 run to share and cos I thought it was pretty cool. Didn't bother with rest cos I didn't think my strategies were that interesting/didn't feel like bothering.

I managed to do 10 risks on perma map and half of challenges, but I honestly have no clue how to go from there. Also no clue how to do challenges where they ask you to kill Crownslayer with 100% arts res without snipers and 180% def wraiths without casters/guards. Ok, I get that I'm supposed to use those explosive generators or w/e but my strategy was to not detonate them, because I wasn't able to figure out how to set my operators to defend before I open the path and after. I'll probably try a bit today and then go for guides, but I'm not sure it's even doable with my operators and I pretty much got everything that mattered from shop, so I'm fine with not clearing everything.

Also the song before operation was nice, but who the hell came up with that head-splitting noise during the actual mission? I had to turn music off, cos it was unlistenable, which especially sucks because I really like Arknights music and unlike FGO I never felt the need to use my own music when playing.

I did the survey for the whole 1 permit (they're really stingy with permits in general, but hard to complain since everything else is so generous) and I'm not sure if I gave them wrong ID, cos I still didn't get it and it was like 3-4 days already since I submitted it.

So we're jumping into Grani event immediately after CC. Ngl I wish we could get a break, especially since I answered that I like the current pace, since we were getting 1 week break between events so far, but now suddenly they're rushing it and that's not the pace I meant. Also on topic of that event, so I understand that if you played event before you don't get first time clear rewards, but was there some repeatable rewards that are not available now or something or outside of first clears event will be exactly the same as before?

Also it was a while since I got senior or top operator tag.

Finally E2 Texas and now working on Lappland to complete the hate-fucking love triangle. I E2 Cuora and Meteorite some time ago and recently Myrtle and Perfumer. My line up starts to finally look decent. Also damn that's a lot of rocks those operators want, at least Orirock Cluster is rare high rarity mat with high drop rate so farming it is relatively fast.

BTW. I totally forgot to ask it before, but whenever you go to base you hear random operators quote and for some time I heard that 1 line I really liked, but couldn't figure out which operator it was. Turns out it was Projekt Red that I didn't have at the time. Anyone can explain it?

Also another thing. I had issue with Kroos and Fang base skills. It seemed like Kroos skill wasn't charging properly while Fangs was. After finally deciding to testing it out I figured out that even if I won't touch Kroos and remove or add other operators, it still counts as her being added and so it resets her skill back to starting point, which was very frustrating, cos I always made sure to not remove her when I already put her to work. But fine, I decided to just work around it, but then I notice that Fang doesn't have that issue. As long as you won't remove her, you can remove and add other operators as many times as you want and her skill won't reset. I get that Kroos and Fang have different values 15%/2% and 20%/1% but the basic mechanic of the skill should still be the same, so why they work differently. I thought maybe they're codded differently, which is common with newer units, but I think Kroos and Fang were both in the game from the beginning. What's up with that?

As for other CC-related stuff, in the current CC event on the Chinese server there's a support contract that cuts down your operators' redeployment time.

Yesterday's Transport Hub had this support contract too.

Hello! I would really appreciate it if someone can help me out.
Here's what I remember: The MC dated someone and then she found out that her present gf is actually her ex-girlfriend in highschool who left her. This girl left her without any notice, and after that, she heard lots of cheating rumours. As soon as she found out that they're the same person, she wanted revenge. MC then left this present girlfriend without saying anything. She also quit her job but the girl still found her and they became together again.

Sorry for any confusing thoughts, that's all I can remember >.< Thank you very much!

or the English dub of Ghost Stories.

Just wanted to point out that GS wasn't actually bad or even unpopular in Japan. That's a myth. It's simply that Japanese publisher didn't think it'll be popular in west so they give translation team pretty much a free hand. There's a argument to be made that they were right, but it's a bit more complicated than "the sauce sux'd". Also for how liberally translation it was they were given rules. They had to keep names of characters and ghosts the same as well the ways the ghosts were defeated. Everything else was fair game though. So you could argue even Japanese still wanted to maintain some semblance of original plot. They just didn't expect Americans to go abridge on it (they did at least tried being serious at first, but with each new episodes voice actors were having more and more fun).
