I'm so disappointed. Nian's second facility skill increases morale consumed by two. Why on earth did they say it "reduced" consumed morale?

Yea, it was confusing me as well. It was clearly a mistake. Just wasn't sure which way, but I did think it increases it. It makes sense after all since skill is so good. It had to have some kind of drawback.

^^^ welcome~

I guess Shira wasn't a great example but she was the 1st that came to mind because she was my 1st E2.

Yesterday's 10 roll was a blue bag fml

As for the event maps. I'll start today since I was farm on HI3 yesterday.

Is there any noble phantasms in this game?

No. All operators have skills that would count as special moves, but they're nothing like NPs. It's tower defense after all.

Oh? you haven't Ch'en S3 then lol. That shit looks like a lvl 3 super from a fighting game.

Lol. I'm not E2 any 5-6 stars anytime soon. Those mats requirements are brutal.

^ they really are. Thankfully events usually give out loads of mats for free or maps have better drops than regular story.
Btw, how long have we been getting t4 mats on weekends? How the heck did I never notice that while mashing the 'claim' button. I figured it was always t1 mats.

Unrelated but since I got sleepy angel now, I want to take a minute to appreciate the sleepy squad. I put Durin in the lmb map to take out the thicc bois and she actually takes them out pretty quickly and efficiently with Sora's help but still.

It was the half year anniversary warm up event leading up to Ancient Forge.

We deserve apologems- I mean apolorundum. Think they'd do it if feedback was submitted? Cause that is a pretty clear mistake on their part and misleading.

I like how Snowsant is a anti slug specialist but she's just a fatter Cliffy most of the time. She's cute.

And people say she's bad lol. Give your Durin headpats.

Ah. Thank you, this really helps me and my existential crisis. I'm not going crazy.

It's just a typo, pretty common in chinense games for some reason. We might actually get free 20 sanity because of it, like in AL. Classic Yostar.

Yea, she seems really interesting. Also she's cute. That's the most important.

Another set of single rolls. I dropped Nightmare, who is really cute and she seems interesting. Also beat AF-5 and 6. 5 was easy af. In fact I totally forgot about lone melee tile, so I kept spamming snipers to protect device from breaking. If I had remember about it, it'd be even easier. Honestly all you need to do is protect device once you drop it to stop bombers. My sniper harem came in handy again. AF-6 gave me some trouble. I had setup figured out, but despite theoretically having roughly the same amount of DPS, 1 side was killing bullies much slower, which resulted in Gummy dying during wave 2. After dozen of attempts I finally noticed that for some unyurily reason Frostleaf S1 deals physical damage instead of arts... After switching her to Mousse, I beat it on first try. Also probably wouldn't beat it without Ifrit. She really was tailor-made for this map. Checked out AF-7, but will leave it for tomorrow. It looks interesting and I have already some ideas how to approach it. BTW. I didn't try any challenge modes yet, but outside of bonus rules I assume enemies are stronger in general?

Yeah, all enemies have a slight increase in stats and you can't let anyone pass into your base at all in addition to whatever special conditions the individual maps have.

KK. That's fine by me since I always aim for 3 stars anyway.

I've heard that you can lose XP/levels for having characters die in this game. Is this true?

Nope, the only penalty for an operator dying mid-level is that it costs a bit more DP to redeploy them (and if you fail/beat the level the DP cost goes back to normal, you lose nothing for having an operator die)

Tex's substantial discomfort with Lapp is a part of the canon fanartists routinely and willfully elect to ignore, so.

Most of the fanart I see on here actually seems to reflect that discomfort. It's rare for Texas to look happy around Lappland.

Finished Ancient Forge story. I'm sure the translation had something to do with it not making complete sense, but the original story clearly plays fast and loose with what's going on too. I wonder just what is the truth with Nian? Lava's outfit looks awesome and I hope there's a way to get it for her.

Quick look at her bio (thanks, wikis) indicates she's another case of question-mark background DOKUHTAH probably doesn't have the clearance to know details about, loaded with vague but alarming if not momentous implications and connections.

...every now and then I start suspecting Kalt'sit factually uses Rhodes as a kind of containement facility for such examples of the world's creepier and more dangerous facets she can drag in somehow. >_>

The part where Nian hypes up her sister is interesting. I expect her sister to be another limited op in the future. More importantly, that talk about the Abyss.... really makes you think. A story event on the abyss is my second most wanted event story, second only to a Rhine Lab event story. So many questions with little answers.
