any notable rewards for the new chapter? contracts?


Paindemonium0

Five contracts, no Mojo exp.


[deleted]

Hello! I’m still new to Nu Carnival but is there a specific way to trade characters with another player? We got the character that the other’s want and we are not sure how trading works T_T we’ve only heard of other people doin it


Des_Equis

If trading was allowed people would reroll on a burner account over and over and trade anything they want into their main account. And I'm sure there are more countless ways trading in gachas can be abused. Most, if not all, gachas don't allow trading. Its easier to control the economy that way.


Paindemonium0

There is no in-game player-social aspect besides adding people as Friends, or joining the same Guild, so no trading of characters or items is possible anyway. But! Nu:Carnival has officially released merchandise (Posters, stickers, coasters, charms, standees, tin buttons, etc.) in select pop up Asian countries. [This post for example is about the kuji mate](https://www.reddit.com/r/NuCarnival/comments/wkyd17/nu_carnival_animate_kuji_mate_general_thread/), which are series of merchandise where the character you get is randomized. For example if you bought a 'towel kuji,' you could potentially get any of the three listed. People IRL do organize trades of these goods to get their favored character instead of buying a bunch of the same Kuji!


silverashsimp

no you can't lol this is not a trading game


Iskaeil

So, I just saw the update notes they posted--I saw this part: >The required materials for ascending SSR Blazing Coliseum - Dante from 4 to 5 stars > >Previously: Coins x540,000, Dante Essence Fragment x90 → > >Now: Coins x540,000, Dante Essence Fragment x90, Crystal Core x2 > >The required materials for ascending Sun Lord - Dante from 4 to 5 stars > >Previously: Coins x400,000, Dante Essence Fragment x90 → > >Now: Coins x400,000, Dante Essence Fragment x90, Crystal Core x1 So for people who have OG SSR Dante and SR Dante and want ascend him to 5\*, this is like the last few weeks for them to do so without requiring a crystal core? :0 I don't have the OG SSR and my SR Dante doesn't have enough frags, so this doesn't pertain to me, just curious. Is this a feature where Blade was like this too and I just totally missed it? Or is it a legit unintended bug?


SilentMix

It's not weeks, it's just a few days away, on Thursday. But yes, you are correct. If you can ascend them before Thursday, then you can do it without a crystal core. But if you can't, you'll need a crystal core by the time are ready to ascend them. This would be an unintended oversight/bug in programming the character. It makes no sense for those Dantes to not require crystal cores to ascend when every other SSR and SR does.


Iskaeil

This particular fix says it goes into effect Sept 15, not Sept 1 if I read the notice correctly, so it’s 2 weeks. That’s why I was wondering if maybe Blade had the same thing, since it’s been a while since Dante’s release so I’m surprised the issue is getting fixed even later.


lttledrkage

Hello! Please help me decide how to spend my memory crystals. Should I: 1. Continue saving so I can ascend AB Olivine to 3* 2. Ascend 2 units out of: BM Quincy to 3*, EB Garu to 3*, Idol Blade to 2* 3. Keep saving until I absolutely need to ascend someone to clear content I have a well invested team that can clear everything pretty easily. The only things I don’t have are a well invested debuffer and AoE, so I’m thinking ascending Idol Blade could be a good idea? But he seems a bit underwhelming lol. Thank you for reading!


olivine_simp

If I were in your position, I'd go for option 2. BM Quincy's 3* passive has been very useful in my experience, so I'd definitely recommend ascending him. I'd also raise IA Blade to 2* so I won't have to use keys to unlock his intimacy rooms 2+. (I'm a bit biased regarding that though, since unlocking H scenes is pretty high up on my list of priorities. 😅)


SilentMix

I wouldn't spend memory crystals on Idol Blade myself. If you really want a good AoE unit, you could always work on levels/pot/intimacy for SR Garu and/or SR Blade to make them better. AoE units are good for grinding and for very specific battles, but in general they're not as useful as a well-invested ST unit. How many stars is your SR Olivine? I don't have AB Olivine, but from what I understand, SR Olivine is actually a better buffer than AB Olivine unless you heavily invest in AB Olivine. You may want to switch to SR Oli. BM Quincy would probably be worth ascending if you like tanks. He's kinda like SR Morvay except he can do more damage. Morvay is sturdier from what I understand out of the two. I do personally really like EB Garu and think he's worth using. He's a decently good ST attacker, and his debuffing just makes him that much more useful. I personally would probably ascend BM Quincy and EB Garu if I were you, but it really depends on if you do use tanks. If you don't, then maybe just ascend Garu and save the rest of your memory crystals.


akika1111

What’s sorcery gems used for? For f2p. I heard f2p need them later on.. for what?


SilentMix

I don't know what you've heard, but use them for pulls. People may be suggesting to save them because of the STEP banners that came up during the Idol Fest event, but f2p will never get enough sorcery gems to pull on a banner like that. If you weren't around for Idol Fest, it required 2 sorcery gems per pull and if you were unlucky and had to hit pity, it required 120 pulls, which is 240 sorcery gems total, to get 1 SSR. It's simply not worth it for f2p to bother worrying about that. 1 sorcery gem per pull for the standard and standard event banners is a better use of your sorcery gems.


akika1111

Oh so that’s what they are for, thanks!


undertalefan9745

When will the next event banner arrive? After 1 sep or after 8 sep?


SilentMix

After September 8th, because that's when this current event banner ends. The event banners and the event themselves never expire the same week, with the event banner typically lasting about a week after the main event ends.


Cavellion

What's the best way to get coins? I'm always constantly running out of them. I can only go the coin stage once a day with the voucher in tow, but what other ways are good money making tactics.


SilentMix

Like Pain said, but I want to emphasize - other than the daily quest voucher, my best way of getting money is from the guild shop plus mojo mart. I buy all of the discounted coins from both tabs every day. You can get 39200 coins for 110 gems and 14000 coins for 40 gems when they show up in mojo mart. There's generally at least a few each day. There's also a daily 14000 coins for 80 dewlets (the guild currency). The 14000 coins for 100 dewlets non-discounted one is occasionally worth buying when you have excessive dewlets (make sure to keep around enough to buy the gems and contract that show up ~every 2 weeks though). I know it'll be a little bit of a drain on the gems, but be patient. Once you get exploration up to level 4 and build up N/R units so you can get the bonus gems every day, the daily exploration gems + daily gems from the deeds actually more than covers it, so you don't have to worry too much anymore about buying out the discounted coins being a drain on your gems.


Cavellion

Wait. You get gems from doing the coin/exp deeds levels?


SilentMix

You can get gems from exploration if you get it up to level 4. Since level 4 is the max level, they make gems the bonus you can get instead of exploration exp and an item.


Paindemonium0

That daily Voucher quest is the best Gold gain, but outside of that you can continue to craft Gold and Silver bars in the workshop (2 gold : 1 silver once you have all slots unlocked). In mojo mart, sometimes 14,000 gold shows up at a discounted 60 (iirc) Spirit gems, which is a technically more efficient use when compared to the daily Gold level that doesn’t require a permit and takes 40 stamina. And in Guild shop, there is always a daily another 14,000 gold for sale for 60 guild deed coins which **is** worth buying on the regular. (Though keep your daily stash of guild coins at at least 700 to buy the contract and Spirit Gems when they also appear in the guild shop). Lastly, at level 60 cap all excess exp gets converted to gold at a 1 exp : 2 gold ratio. So daily you will have an income of 7,600-ish just spending stamina when you’re max level. If you are desperate, the second-best gold farming is that 40-stamina free stage, but there’s not many ways to mass farm gold otherwise.


undertalefan9745

Is buying the intimacy keys in the barter shop worth it? I may or may not have bought the keys... on my main acc lol


Paindemonium0

Focusing on one SSR to unlock, it's... okay. But buying all 5 per month would leave you completely drained of F2P monthly gem earnings with very little reserve if you clear full event ladders and the Key stock. Since you can get keys with Memory fragments and/or Spirit Gems now, it does make unlocking the 5th room much easier if you are devoted. And that's OK for the Spirit Gem purchases! It's worth keeping in mind it costs the same amount of Memory fragments to go from 1\* SSR -> 3\* SSR to unlock the last room, as it does to buy 5x keys for crafting 1 Fancy key.


Cavellion

Does this mean if I use memory fragments entirely, I should just buy to increase my character's stars? Considering those add power on top of the intimacy rooms alone?


Paindemonium0

Yes, exactly!


undertalefan9745

Its cos im a newbie and just started playing so i kinda got decieved by the 89 percent off sign


undertalefan9745

Now i know i should not spend all my gems on keys lol, thanks for the advice


324n

if i don't collect the energy potions from the deeds will it stay there indefinitely or will it disappear


Paindemonium0

The weekly and monthly deed-potions will disappear if unclaimed and they reset. Same goes for Event deeds. You can ‘hold’ the ones for Personal indefinitely since those deeds never expire.


nah1200

Hihi, can I get help with team building? Right now my main team consists of SR Olivine, SR Yakumo, Sweet Aroma Edmond, and SR Aster. I have SR Garu and SR Morvay leveled up and I was using SSR Garu and SR Kuya for a bit so they have some potential unlocked as well. My question is, what would be a good choice for another single target striker? I don't really know who would synergize best with SA Edmond and I also don't know what niches I may need to fill. I have SR Quincy, OG SSR Blade, and SR Dante. Which one do you think would be best? Or are there any lower rarity characters that could be just as good? I'm a total newbie so any advice is appreciated Thank you thank you <3


Paindemonium0

Oh hello, good question! You already have the skeleton of Buffer -> Healer -> 3 Strikers down so I'll just focus on the matter of Strikers. Sweet Aroma / Chase the Rainbow (CR) Edmond is a supportive DPS because of his Ultimate Skill's ability to force the enemy to take more damage from basic attacks. It's also on a very low cooldown of 3, so he's not as bothered as other units are on keeping the debuff up in 3-Wave battles. He can keep the debuff up 100% of the time since the duration and the cooldown of the skill are both 3. The effect itself best serves characters like Aster (all rarities) and the original (OG) SSR Edmond, the Knightly Night one, because both of these specifically have Potential 6 / 3-Star abilities that all boost the damage of their Basic Attacks. However, CR Edmond can effective help SR Quincy and SR Edmond out fairly equally. SR Quincy suffers from having 5\~6 turns of doing nothing but twiddling his thumbs while waiting for his ultimate skill to charge and can really use CR Edmond's debuff to boost his damage in the turns he is lazing around. When Quincy's only 1 or 2-star ascended, [he gets the same use out of either CR Dante or CR Edmond's debuff](https://www.reddit.com/r/NuCarnival/comments/wukfzo/chase_the_rainbow_analysis_how_good_are_the_new/). Past that, he gets a smidge more out of Dante's debuff, but for the same of current meta it's splitting hairs that either one's fine. As for SR Edmond, he's got the same cooldown as CR Edmond. SR Edmond's an all-around vanilla DPS unit, neither particularly focused on basic attacks nor Ultimate skills. However at 3-stars, his clone buff gives himself +8% Attack for every Edmond in team counting himself. And who'd have thought! CR Edmond is also an Edmond, giving SR Edmond another stack of buffs. * Choice between SR Quincy, OG SSR Blade, SR Dante? **SR Quincy gets my vote from these choices**, with OG SSR Blade as the 2nd pick and SR Dante 3rd-most preference from the list. This is because you have both Aster and CR Edmond working as speedy DPS that can together take down certain stages in Sorc Trials that rely on killing one enemy / getting the boss to an HP stage before Turn 6. Quincy covers their weak spot of lacking strong Ultimate Skill damage while also bringing total elemental coverage. (CR Edmond = Fire, SR Aster = Water, SR Quincy = Wood) Furthermore, in about two or three more events, with regular play you'll likely be pulling enough duplicates to 4-Star Quincy before even 2-starring SSR Blade, hence why I vouch for the SR Quincy over Blade. **SSR Blade isn't a bad choice either**. He grants himself buffs that also interact multiplicatively (this is good) with CR Edmond's debuff, albeit it takes him up to Turn 7 to fully stack his two buffs. **SR Dante would be the poorest choice from these three** because he is also a Supportive DPS. Using 2 Supportive DPS would actually lower the team's overall DPS versus using just 1 Supportive DPS + 2 normal Strikers, though this Dante is good in specific stages against lots of Golems / Guarding enemies. But unless you want to level, Intimacy, and Potential up 3 characters at once, focus on building one at a time.


nah1200

Thank you so much for the detailed response <3 It was really helpful and gave me a better understanding of the game, i'll go ahead and start building up my Quincy


Paindemonium0

Happy to help! As a new player, you might find some links on the [**Resources page**](https://www.reddit.com/r/nucarnival/wiki/resources/) informative for you to figure out mechanics and other long-term strategies. Or feel free to ask in the Q&A Megathread again!


Hakuw_dw

Started a week ago and just saw the Promised Day banner for Garu/Blaze. May I ask: 1) How often do these banners appear, and usually when? 2) Did OG SSR Dante get a rate-up recently? Want to plan my contracts a bit and stave off buying his pack for as long as possible. Unfortunately I finished chp 9 without thinking ahead so now I have 36 days to decide :’)


Paindemonium0

1) They use these Promised Day banners as fillers at the end of most events, they typically last two weeks to cover the week that one event ends before the next one begins (such as the week between Idol Fest -> Chase the Rainbow). Do not recommend pulling on them because **there is no pity.** 2) OG SSR Dante had his rate-up banner at the start of Chapter 9's release (Back in.... June I wanna say?). He was recently added to the general Clan Member banner and Event banners, but at regular rates split up among the other 7 OG SSRs. The game has not yet rerun solo-rate-up banners and it will likely be a very long time until they bother doing so. Also these solo rate ups did not have any Guarantee SSR Pity either, which is rather unfortunate.


Hakuw_dw

Yeah, the no-pity trait is a bummer; it's like throwing contracts into the void. Wanted to know my options in the event I get desperate haha. So seems like my best chance is to get his SP pack straight. Thank you Pain! \^\_\^

When I try to sign the app (have developer account) and then install on my iOS device, I get an error "Unable to install". Is there a reason anyone can think of? Has Apple blocked the app from being signed or something? Is that even possible haha?


Paindemonium0

Are you trying to install an .IPA file? The Android .APK is not compatible with iPhone (think like trying to fit an entire bagel into a toaster slot). There are also specific methods to install Nu:Carnival since the app is not technically approved by Apple, and I’m not sure if you’re on a Mac trying to install via iTunes clickn’ drag (this will fail), or the website direct download (this will also fail if the file is incorrect or authentication is not complete). Check out the Tech Help page for some installation walkthroughs: https://www.reddit.com/r/nucarnival/wiki/tech-help/


Alternative_Lynx8962

Whats the avergare lvl you need to complete the events? Currently lvl 18 and fireworks 2 one shots me


Paindemonium0

I’ve beaten Fireworks 2 at an account at Lv 38 (mainly relying on an invested 2-star Idol Feat Olivine as my main DPS). As long as your team is above 600 HP at the level cap and can beat the tree in under 50 turns, it is beatable, just don’t bring a healer. The rest of the team was a 1-star Idol Feat Yakumo (buffer), 2-star SR Edmond, 2-star Aster, and I think a 1-star SR Garu. All the SRs had at least their 2nd intimacy room unlocked, and Aster and Olivine were Potential 6 unlocked.


timeless54

I cannot speak for myself since I played since the first event but level 40 is the level cap for Fireworks 3. For Fireworks 2, the level cap is 30. [There is also a guide on how to beat the bosses.](https://www.reddit.com/r/NuCarnival/comments/wrcusi/chase_the_rainbow_fireworks_stages_guide/)


undertalefan9745

For the 300 hard pity ssr selector, will it carry over to the next banner?


SilentMix

This is the first time the hard pity has been done in this way so we don't know for sure but... no. Probably not. Pity as so far never carried over to the next banner.


Arashi5

I've been made vice president of my guild, does that just mean that I'll be made president if the president is inactive or is there something else to it?


Paindemonium0

Vice Guild Leader gets extra permissions such as being able to kick members, edit the Guild Message, change the guild mascot, and set the Guild Join permissions (Apply with Permission, or Open to All). They can't disband the guild nor appoint fellow Vices. Guild Lead will transfer if the leader has been inactive for 14 days to an active member with the highest Guild Contribution. I can't confirm, but I think it looks among the 3 Vices for activity + contribution, before looking at the rest of the Guild members.


Arashi5

Thank you!!


akika1111

For boost expired it state expire in 1 day… so does it count hours or automatically expired first login tomorrow, when the day change?


Paindemonium0

It counts the hours. When there is less than 24 hrs until the boost expires, the timer counts down from 23:59.


haven4ever

I understand that the general set up seems to be 1 Buffer, 1 Healer, and either 2 Strikers + Morvay or 3 Strikers. Of course the Healer is nigh compulsory but is the buffer also the same or do you often go without? Poor SR Olivine is getting fatigued so wonder if another striker instead would be viable.


Paindemonium0

Buffer + 3 DPS outperforms 4 DPS. However if you're at the stage where you'd be replacing a Level 50 DPS with a Level 1 Buffer, then naturally the DPS will better serve you unless you're willing to invest an equal amount of resources into the Buffer to play catch-up. That doesn't mean you can't get by without a buffer, and a 1 Healer / 3 DPS+Tank or 4 DPS is alright too. There are a few Sorcerer's Trials that have mechanics that depend heavily on having 4 strikers in your team, but those are a rarity. Overall, I think it's worth putting some effort into getting SR Oli to at least Potential 6 if you don't have Idol Fest Yakumo.


haven4ever

Thanks for the advice!


MunchOnACarrot

Is it worth levelling/ascending N or R units for expeditions before hitting territory Lv.4? I've heard the amount of EXP you gain for the territory is fixed and the units level/ascension only affects the bonus items so I've not bothered with levelling them yet as I'm still on territory 2 of light & wood. Should I stay as I am or is it worth levelling them now?


SilentMix

It's worth it. Level 2 will make you use level 10 units IIRC to get the bonus sometimes so you can get exp, level 3 is 20, and level 4 goes up to 35 (level 4 is the max, so no exp but you get blue gems and meeting the bonuses increases the chance of getting the blue gems). And you'll want the ascension bonuses so you can get more materials to help increase your units' potential.


MunchOnACarrot

thanks!


rennkinjutsushi

Is it possible to give my friend an unbinded account? I saved the UID and all but not sure if/how it works


Iskaeil

Probably not. If it's unbound then it's tied to the device, since there's no login to use to try to access from another device. I'm not sure if there's a way to do it if you're using BlueStacks/emulator on your pc.


vasogenic16

Yall, we should all agree or vote on which to use for naming the SSRs, reading the recent threads makes me confused (e.g., CR Dante vs EH Dante) 😭


Aelnir

I use standard to refer to the standard ssrs, event \*char name\* to refer to current event chars. and the full name to refer to past event chars


324n

the other alternative i can suggest is we start numbering the characters by when they arrived lol like OG Olivine, 1AB Oli, 2RA Oli (by their title) or 1ZL Oli, 2IF Oli (by event) or OG (SSR0) Oli, SSR1 Oli, and SSR2 Oli. im still event name > title. i had to open up the wiki to check Oli's other names while recalling event names were easier


vasogenic16

I personally prefer event too. For me its easier to say Idol Fest Blade, Idol Fest Yakumo, Idol Fest Olivine than their title(i dont even know it at the top of my head).


SilentMix

I think it's better to refer to them as their name (EH Dante for example) rather than by the event, because then that way you don't have to remember which event they came from. In-game they don't refer to them by the event they came from after the event is over. It also makes things confusing to refer to them by the event, because technically the event banner that you actually pull on is called Illuminate the Night.


Cavellion

I know they say not to rush the event stages to get the event drops, but is it safe to use up my expiring stamina bottles for the week, just to farm the event stages?


SilentMix

Absolutely! Don't let those stamina potions expire without being used! Using them on the event stages is a great way to use them. Even if those stages end up being less efficient than what unlocks on Thursday, it still is better to use energy on the event stages than to do something else if you're trying to get all of the rewards. I do suggest saving any stamina potions that can wait until the next set of stages unlocks though. Just use up the ones that expire before then.


drrraug

Do the Fancy Key packs refresh on the store, or is one only ever able to purchase one of each?


Paindemonium0

They don't refresh :(


haven4ever

During events do you guys still progress Sorcerer's Trials and Story or just save energy for farming the event?


Iskaeil

I only do the gold daily quest, and only do Sorcerer's trial if I have a bit of energy left before going to bed. In regard to story, when I was still progressing I only did it if I was scrounging for pulls due to some of the achievements. Otherwise, the resources from the event ladder are more reliable rewards than trying to grind the story, especially if you are low on mats for potential.


Paindemonium0

I skip dailies (except the Gold) and only do event. Sometimes before I have to go to bed and I have 15\~20 energy remaining, I will do some Sorc Trials to make sure it's empty before sleeping. Since the best farming stage costs 35 AP and I'm saving stamina potions for Part 2's release, I try not to waste them too early.


haven4ever

If the King of the Light Territory invited Eiden to see the summer festival, why are the Royal Soldiers attacking him? So rude to guests.


Stevenlepetit

Hello, maybe it's a stupid ask but still asking. I have a very little guild and would like to have more people on it. Can I do the promotion of it here or on the mains posts ? Won't do it if I can't


Paindemonium0

There is a [Guild Recruitment Megathread](https://www.reddit.com/r/NuCarnival/comments/uo8wx8/megathread_guild_faq_recruitment_megathread/) here that you can re-post a promo once a week. There is also a dedicated guild chat and recruitment channel in the Reddit's Discord too, as well as a channel in the official-actually-legitimate-from-Erolabs Nu:C Discord. Both of these links are at the bottom of this main post.


Stevenlepetit

Thank you ^-^


silverashsimp

help. Am I blind or did the devs remove the function to sell Trade permits(the daily tickets for exp and gold that's capped at 3/3)?? what a bummer


angel-of-britannia

It's still there! They've just been moved to the bottom of the menu when the keys bought with memory fragments got added


timeless54

Does anyone recall the announcement or post the developers made regarding old event SSRs possibly coming back in the (distant) future? I thought the FAQ had something regarding it but it doesn't seem to have that answer....


Paindemonium0

Actually... I don't think the devs have made it an official announcement now that I think about it. I consider it a truth by dint of a vast majority of Gacha games having reruns a year after release. Also their other Erolabs games have reruns and even solo-boosted rates for individual characters.


timeless54

Ah.... so for now it's just speculations because of gacha games usually having it. I thought it was said somewhere...maybe I was imagining it. Thank you for the response!


jtan1993

r u guys skipping the daily gold/exp stages (100 stam) to grind the event currency? i assume we'll still have to do a few stam refreshes to get all the rewards.


kissfuckkill

I'm skipping both during the event, because a have lots of exp bottles and about 2.5m gold, so that is not a problem since im lvl60 and have a full boosted(?) team


Iskaeil

Skipping exp stages, will restart doing one gold one per day when I hit max on the permits for them. I used up all my permits for both before the start of the event to ensure I had at least 3 days I wasn't wasting stamina on them over the event stages lol.


Hakuw_dw

If you want, you can exchange the permits for gold at the shop! Under Special > Barter, right at the bottom


SilentMix

We will need to do refreshes to get all of the rewards. I'm skipping exp stages but I'm not skipping the gold ones. I did for IF and I'm just... I don't want to do that again so soon. I need gold. I'll buy more stamina refreshes if I have to.


jtan1993

ooh. ya gold seems to be the main gatekeeper


msiddy91

Between these two setups, which make a better AOE team? 1. Endless Banquet Garu + SR & R Garu 2. Idol Apprentice Blade + SR & R Blade I currently have only invested in ST units so I'm thinking of making a dedicated AOE setup. Thanks!


Paindemonium0

I would actually mix SR Garu + SR Blade + SSR Master's Gift Garu (Endless Banquet garu is single target) for best results. If you have all the SRs at 3-stars, then go Garu!


msiddy91

Sadly I don't have Master's Gift Garu :') The reason I included EB Garu is because my SR Garu is at 3\* so he gets the passive bonus from other Garus. Any particular reason why include SR Blade into the mix?


Paindemonium0

SR Blade is also an AoE and can take advantage of the \[+4% damage inflicted\] debuff that SR Garu also outputs on every enemy. They have similar base attack stats (SR Garu at 1707 and SR Blade at 1672, it's a 3% difference). HOWEVER. Blade has a 63% basic attack multiplier where Garu has only 50%, and that difference accounts for why SR Blade is better than SR Garu if you look at them individually (and assume they're facing neutral damage enemies and have same investment in everything else). Both of them also get +8% ATK for clone buffs so not really any difference in that either. * But why the mix? SR Garu's debuff applies to all attacks that occur after him, meaning you will get more bang out of your buck utilizing SR Garu as a support DPS and build around a more selfish DPS's passive to get the most damage output from the overall team. (Everyone at 3-stars) - SR Garu + \[SR Blade + R Blade\] will deal more damage than \[SR Garu + R Garu\] + SR Blade. Another reason to mix: I don't suggest keeping N cards on team in the long-term. It's expensive to level any unit to 60 and why not do it on at least Rs and SRs!


msiddy91

>SR Garu + \[SR Blade + R Blade\] will deal more damage OK will work on this! (maybe + Idol Blade because he kinda cute lol) Thank you for the very thorough explanation! <3


SilentMix

Endless Banquet Garu is actually ST. He's the only ST Garu. Do you mean Master's Gift Garu? Regardless of the Garu question - I think the Blade setup could be really good, especially if you have a healer to help keep him alive, since his taunt draws attacks towards him. I think you should give that one a try.


msiddy91

I included EB Garu because my SR Garu will get the passive bonus from teaming with another Garu. I don't have SSR OG Garu unfortunately. I think I'll give the Blade setup a shot!


89gin

I hope this wasn't asked before but are all SSR characters available in the pool? For example we had that idol event with 3 new SSR characters. Once their summoning banner/rate up is over/changed to the current one, are those permanently in the summoning pool or do you have to wait until that event comes back for a chance to get them again? I'm mostly interested in the white day ones. Thanks in advance!


angel-of-britannia

No, event SSRs are not added to the pool after they leave and you'd have to wait for reruns (which they haven't done yet so far). The only SSRs that are always available (unless noted, like the idol banner temporarily removing off banner SSRs) are the permanent ones also available in the Clan Member Contracts banner.


89gin

I see. Thank you very much for your answer! Hopefully they decide to do reruns or have all the characters in the pool after release like other games do.


Iskaeil

I finally have enough memory crystals to 3\* OG Edmond! Can someone tell me if his '+17% atk/striker up to 3' passive includes himself or do I need 3 other strikers + Edmond? Thinking I could go SR Yakumo or Olivine/SA Edmond/EH Dante/Idol Olivine/OG Edmond to buff his attacks to the max if it's the latter.


Paindemonium0

It includes himself. Thankfully, all the 3-star "Clone" buffs on the SRs, Rs, and other units that specify a certain Character or certain Class include themselves in the count.


Iskaeil

Nice! I can leave out EH Dante then. Ty!

Does anyone have the event deeds as well as the gems we get per star milestones for White Storm and Zest for Life? I wanted to track down how much gems and contracts we get from each event. Anyway, here are some of my recordings if it helps: 300 gems from event deeds (Mystical Banquet, Idol Fest, Chase the Rainbow; 200 for Klein Star), 12 contracts from event deeds (MB, CR; 2 only for KS, IF), and for the star milestones, we got 200 (MB) and 825 (KS, breakdown: 75\*3 + (100+200+300). There's no star milestones for IF, and as for CR we only have the first 75 available. iirc the star milestones for WS is similar to KS because I distinctly remember striving hard to get 3 stars on the challenge stages because the rewards are quite good. I'm also inclined to believe that we got 12 contracts + 300 gems on the event deeds since WS and ZL are similar to MB and CR due to them being a 3 week event with limited banners (unlike KS which doesn't have banners nor IF which was our first "big" 4 week event). Before I use those figures I just wanted anyone if they can confirm lol


324n

Anyway here are the rewards we got per event converted to gems. If there are mistakes please correct me. White Storm: 39275\* Zest for Life: 25400\* Mystical Banquet: 23900 Klein Star: 5825 Idol Fest: 31300 Chase the Rainbow: 31375\*\* \* Assumed 12 contracts + 300 gems in event deeds; 200 for star milestones \*\* Incomplete since the event is still ongoing ZL and MB are quite disappointing for being in the 20k range. I'm also quite disappointed with IF (4 wk event) for being equivalent in rewards to CR (3 wk).


Paindemonium0

Your best bet is checking the "Post Flairs" link in the navigation bar (or in the About on mobile). At the bottom will be links to filter by past events, as well as filter by all past Event Megathreads. Most, if not all, have the Rewards ladder linked in the Resources section for past and future reference.


Cryonxs

So I just rolled a ssr olivine and a og ssr edmond (on the event banner I'm so sad) But i was wondering is it even worth building 1 star ssr olivine if i have high investment 3 star yakumo? Also is og ssr edmond or og ssr quincy better if both at 1 star?


msiddy91

I have 3\* SR Yakumo and 1\* OG SSR Olivine, personally I prefer Yakumo as his heal is generous from the get go, while Olivine's needs to stack. If you have resources to spare it probably won't hurt to have two healers. I don't have OG SSR Quincy, but I do have Edmond at 1\*. He's one of my main DPS units since I started playing the game, and he has helped me clear so many contents. I reckon Quincy is more of a nuker while Edmond relies on his basic attacks + follow up attacks after his ultimate. Edmond has much lower CD.


Aelnir

do you guys go for a char if you liek their looks/h scene but not into their gameplay. I love new event edmond, but dont really like his gameplay but idk if its worth 300 pulls


Cryonxs

honestly i only pull for characters I like designs for and then worry about gameplay. I find that most units at high investment do their job pretty well and if you're not trying to 100% the trials then anything goes really


Aelnir

I think im set for the sorc trials, sp maybe ill try to go for edddie


[deleted]

[удалено]


Cryonxs

afaik there is no soft pity in this game unfortunately :((


paulfauvelfrost

with the introduction of selective pity, it got me wondering, is going for selective pity the better option for f2p? odds wise? assuming i have 300 contracts, is it better to have at it or spread it out on events. i’ve decided i’ll only pull for event olivine and quincy anyways


Paindemonium0

It's better to have at it if you can and no more, 300-selection pity included. Since pity doesn't carry over, considering how many pulls you want to put toward each banner favors an All-or-Nothing approach. Putting 200 pulls into 1 event is much better than putting 50 - 50 - 50 - 50 across four different events, for example. Stopping early if you manage to pull an SSR is also perfectly fine, since you've already beaten the odds if you've summoned one of the event duo before hitting pity.


Nagi27

So EH Dante has a passive where he gives a partywide 5% shield on attack, it might be possible for OB Yakumo to buff the shield mods by 25% on attack and 55% on skill. if anyone can test it id love to know if it works and if the effects are noticeable \^\^


Iskaeil

I don't think EH Dante's passive grants a shield, it's worded as "shield effect +5%," meaning he would buff shields by 5%. You can compare the wording to OG Dante's basic atk where it specifies it as "grant shield."


Nagi27

Ahh I see thank you so much! :< I kinda wish there was a character trial mode before we pull


amukagamine

do we know the new ssr's roles yet or do we have to wait til they add them to the game to know? sorry its my first update and im hoping for a healer heh


Iskaeil

So far we only know their roles when they release ingame. Since it's your first banner if you're not a fan of the designs I suggest waiting a day or two for people to test the units, since we don't get a chance to theorycraft before unit releases like other gacha games. But if you're pulling for aesthetics go for it!


amukagamine

thank you!! not a fan of the new ssrs but if one of them is a healer ill go for it!! otherwise ill save for quincy :P


Iskaeil

Ooo. Yeah I would say see what ppl think after testing em out if either are a healer! SR Yakumo is pretty easy to get and will probably get more ascensions than an event SSR; plus olivine might end up in the next event. Good luck!!


akika1111

How many pull can we get in a month? I want to pull for the new event but to reach 300 pity... hope rngesus bless me


Paindemonium0

85-ish for f2p. This comment and the link within have the Deeds + Events + others total Gem and Contract earnings breakdown. https://www.reddit.com/r/NuCarnival/comments/wdarmi/comment/ijiqzfc/


Iskaeil

Banner drops tomorrow, right? I'm so excited! How've you guys prepared? I'm planning to use up Trade/Explorer permits so I don't have use stamina on the daily gold/exp quests for the next 3 days and commit my stamina to the event; whatever stamina I have left will go towards Edmond's intimacy mats. Also have about 1230 stamina saved up in pots.


Paindemonium0

I’ve been exclusively farming Edmond mats on the days his quest is around, and doubling up on the Permit quests on the days in between. So many cookies.....


SilentMix

I just hope this event doesn't make us spend gems for energy refills like the last event with that stupid ladder. I'm still rebuilding my stash from that. ;_;


haven4ever

Is there any indication yet as to whether the [Illuminate the Night] Banner will contain non-event SSRs? I assume not given [Promised Day] and then the [Clan Members] banner already having them. It's a shame, Clan Members banner just isn't worth it without a pity rule.


SilentMix

In addition to what Pain said, pity is at 100 pulls where they say it's a guaranteed SSR (they do not say the word event). But then if you get to 300 pulls, you will get a guaranteed event SSR (event is specified). It makes no sense to have the 300 thing mathematically if the OGs are not included, because if they were NOT, by the time you get to 300 pulls, that's 3 SSRs. If there was just the 2 events, and at least 3 SSRs in the 300 pull timeframe - well, that means a not guaranteed but decent likelihood of getting both events anyway even without that item. So... yeah. My thesis on why I'm 99% positive that OGs are included this time.


Paindemonium0

Illuminate the Night's banner rates besides the featured SSRs have not been published, but one can extrapolate that yes, **there will be OG SSRs in there** to spook. Both White Day (March event), Zest for Life (April event), and Mystical Banquet (June event) have all had 0.6% event SSR rates, with OG SSR spook rates to level off the total SSR rate to 1.6% per banner. In Idol Fest, while they did away with OG SSRs, they leveled off the 3 featured SSRs to 0.5% apiece for a total of 1.5%, and I am aware of the blowback some of the players had about the loss of 0.1% of the total SSR rate. It would be a business model suicide to tank 1.6% standard rate to 1.2% if they only had the 2 SSRs right after what Idol Fest did. Promised Day is virtually identical to Clan Members, and **both of these do not have pity**. They weight the SSR percentages so the 2 featured OG SSRs have a higher rate of coming home versus the rest of the crew, while Clan member has equal distribution (even if it may not feel like it to an individual (un)lucky player). Both have total SSR rates of 1.6% as well. I agree it's not worth pulling on banners without pity, unless you really, really want SR fragments.


Forward_Line8328

New to this subreddit, and I had a few questions about this game since I have no one else to talk to about it. Also sorry if these have been answered before! 1. How do I get my power level up? I feel like it's a pain to grind for "potential" materials and I have no guarantee of getting the ascension things either. I use Idol Yakumo and once the banner is gone, I don't know if I'll ever get him again so how will I ascend him? 2. How exactly does pulling work? What's the pity, should I spend crystals on the normal banner, etc, etc. 3. What do I do with my Crystal Shards and Memory Crystals? I see I can spend my memory crystals but what's a good investment? What do crystal shards do? Thank you for the help! I'm new to this game, and I don't know what to do half the time

Welcome to the sub and welcome to the game! You're definitely in the right place to find a lot of information, and I'll be linking a lot of things. # Please visit the [FAQ page](https://www.reddit.com/r/nucarnival/wiki/faq/) and [Resources](https://www.reddit.com/r/nucarnival/wiki/resources/) page as well after reading this post. * Power level * It's tied to everything you can do to upgrade members on a current team, leaning Level (yeah!), Intimacy (Yeah!), Potential (Yeah! ^(/derogatory)), and Ascension (Yeah! ^(/painnn)). Newbies will have ready access to leveling and Intimacy, and you've already seen the Gold and Material posts of Potential building, which takes a while. * Ascensions are the cash-money option since the shards that are required to ascend only come from pulling on the gacha and getting duplicates. * [A Dummy's Guide to Nu:Carnival Stats](https://www.reddit.com/r/NuCarnival/comments/u5k9ji/a_dummys_guide_to_nucarnival_stats/) for more in-depth information about each thing. * Pulling? * "Pulling" is just the fan / gamer word for whenever you use the contracts on banners. You'll see people call it 'rolling' and sometimes 'summoning,' but it's basically the whole randomized mechanic of pulling more characters. The game genre with this mechanic is called 'Gacha' from the Japanese real-life gachapon machines. You put in a 100 yen coin, turn a knob, and get a plastic capsule with a random plastic toy in it, and this has been captured in many digital games since it's quite popular. * Standard Banner (Clan Member Banner) never has pity. Don't pull on it unless you know what you're doing or have a high tolerance for disappointment. * Pity: [Answered in the FAQ!](https://www.reddit.com/r/nucarnival/wiki/faq/#wiki_what_is_pity.3F_.2F_how_can_i_get_guaranteed_ssrs.3F) If this link doesn't take you directly to the Question, just Ctrl-F "Pity". * So far all Event banners (the ones that are limited-time character variations) have had a pity mechanic. Since April, there will be a visible counter on the home page of the banner saying something like \[0/100 contracts until SSR\] in the upper right. This counter will go up whenever you pull on that banner, it does not count pulls from Friendship points or other banners. So far **this pity counter has been 100, with Idol Fest having a 150 pity in the past event.** * **Pity does not carry over from event to event.** For this reason, unless you can guarantee the full amount of pulls required to pity, I do not recommend pulling. F2P saving 40 pulls between events is a decent average. If you can get 60+ pulls that's good. If you skip pulling on event banners, it's easy to accumulate 100+ pulls to guarantee an SSR the next event you want to cash in all your contracts and gems on. ​ * Crystal Shards / Memory shards? * [Crystal Shards in FAQ](https://www.reddit.com/r/nucarnival/wiki/faq/#wiki_crystal_shards.3F) \- Short answer is **they're for building N and R card potentials.** Search for keyword "Crystal Shard." * [Memory Crystals in FAQ](https://www.reddit.com/r/nucarnival/wiki/faq/#wiki_memory_crystals.2Fessence_fragments.3F) \- Short answer is **they're the answer to your Idol Yakumo question because they can buy Ascension shards of characters you already own,** even if their gacha banner is no longer available. Search for keyword "Memory." (I do realize the page calls them Memory Crystals or Memory Fragments instead of shard.) For absolute new players who find the FAQ and Resources too dense, please read the [General Guide to Nu:Carnival](https://bit.ly/NUguide) if nothing else! It's mostly written for people who are new to the gacha mobile game genre, and more experienced players can skip down to the last half for Nu:Carnival specific information.

Thank you so much!


Paindemonium0

Anytime!


LusciousIngo

Sorry if this has been answered, but I tried searching for it before hand. How long does it take to reach pity? Not pity, but spark? Only interested in the 300 Spark. I'm really excited for the new spark system update, but I want to know how long it'll take. In other games I play, it's 1.5 ~ 2 months to accumulate enough for a guaranteed unit. Is this the same way?


Paindemonium0

[Here's a disgustingly long breakdown](https://www.reddit.com/r/NuCarnival/comments/wit22j/comment/ijer8fx/?utm_source=reddit&utm_medium=web2x&context=3) that does not count Event-given contracts, which if you don't want to read is 53.6 pulls / month (on Sorcerer's VIP pass), or 51.1 if you are absolutely f2p. Monthly(ish) events have given 29 pulls via contracts in their prize ladders or shops which are still attainable for F2Ps. They also put a cheeky 5 pull in a week-long event login activity, so make that an additional 34 pulls a month. While the event also pays out Gems, it does take a decent chunk of them to complete prize ladders so let's assume the payout cancels out the costs. 51 + 34 pulls = 85 summons in a month overall, barring any Gift Codes the company releases. That rounds out to 3.5 months to have enough contracts to 300-spark for pure F2P players. This will be the first time Nu:carnival's implemented a spark mechanic ever so we'll have to see how well the game does going forward!


SilentMix

They've been changing the system every single event lately, trying to figure out which is the best one to use. They may not use it again next time. I think it just depends on which system gets the whales to spend the most money. That being said, here's the typical contracts you can earn: Daily logins for a month - 13 Monthly deeds - 5 Guilds - 1 per week if your guild can hit it, plus 1 every 2 weeks from guild shop Mystery Shop - 10 per month (costs 480 blue gems instead of the normal 600) That's about 34 in a month. Add in ~30 per playable event plus whatever personal deeds and chapter rewards you haven't completed yet plus if you choose to spend blue gems as contracts. If you're a new player and thus have a lot of personal deeds and chapter rewards to gain, 300 contracts will not be that bad to obtain. If you've been playing for a while? Eh... You're probably looking at closer to maybe 60-80 contracts in a month. So for the established player, maybe 3-4 months. Again though - I wouldn't count on this system sticking around. I hope it does, since it's the best system they've done so far IMO. But who knows.


LusciousIngo

Ah, I see... thank you so much for the detailed response! Guess I'm in the 3 ~ 4 month month realm, huh. Hope the system sticks around too...

In-game, go to the Settings menu, Other tab, and at the bottom-right will be a “Bind Your Account” button. If it is missing, then you’ve already bound your account and you’re good to go.

So that's why I wasn't seeing anything ! Thank you !


nah1200

hihi, newbie here I just pulled Idol Blade and i'm wondering if it's a good idea to invest in him as a new player. I keep struggling with the content, my team generally consists of: SSR Garu, SR Aster, SR Morvay, R Yakumo, and a flex slot. In my reserves i've been using SR kuya, R Morvay, and R Olivine but I haven't increased any of their potential. I was stuck on the Chapter 6 Green Crystal boss so I decided to throw caution to the wind and tried to pull for a second healer, and ended up pulling Idol Blade. Thankfully I also beat the boss thanks to that other R healer. But I have no clue if / when I should invest in Idol Blade. I've heard he's really niche but I don't know what that niche is. I'd like to use him but my teams are already way too weak and I dont have a great healer. Do you just level Idol Blade up so he can farm stages with Garu and another AOE unit? I would like to use him eventually because he had my favorite design of the idols, but I honestly wanted the other two because they seemed really useful.


lell-ia

I think raising SR Olivine for buffs and another ST damage dealer would be more ideal for you, since ST damage dealers will help you more generally and one AOE unit is sufficient, and you already have the best one. If you have SR Quincy, SR Dante is your best bet if you have any of them. SR Kuya isn't half bad either, and he helps with healing bear stages. Idol Blade's main mechanic is that he taunts that only lasts one attack every turn (guard doesn't taunts) and counter attacks when attacked. So he's terrible against bosses and hard hitting enemies since they will focus their aggro on him every single turn, maybe unless you're significantly stronger (out-level or high ascension and potential) In the future, it's nice to build him if you want to speed up your farming, but generally he's not as helpful if you're looking to progress.


olivine_simp

His niche is that he deals damage primarily through counterattacks. There's more detailed information about him in [this guide](https://www.reddit.com/r/NuCarnival/comments/ug2p74/character_guide_tips_on_usage_and_team_building) under the AoE Strikers section, if you're interested. I think he's worth investing into if the only SSR AoE attacker you have right now is Garu. AoE attackers are very useful for both farming and Sorcerer's Trials, and IA Blade is still an SSR even if he isn't at the top of the current meta. As for a healer, if you don't have HC Olivine, then try building SR Yakumo. If you don't have him either, I'd recommend waiting and investing in him once you do get him. If you're still struggling, try increasing your characters' potential and intimacy levels. Doing so will increase their stats, and the former will also allow you to unlock additional passives. Good luck!


Cloud_junior26

hey hey! i have 500+ energy saved up and it's expiring in less than an hour, what can i invest it in?


Paindemonium0

//edit it's past reset now, but with that little time left on expiring stamina potions, **just use them all at once** so you have 500 stamina banked, then use them on whatever. Any unused daily Gold and EXP tickets. If you've done those, then completing Chapter 10, and then Intimacy gifts (15 stamina stage) for Edmond and Dante (for the upcoming event). I don't recommend doing the free 40-stamina Gold and EXP quests unless you're really hurting for resources, then that's the best stuff:stamina spent if you've done all the above!


haven4ever

Are the Workshop orders dependent on what you are crafting or will people order a mix of Silver and Gold bars regardless? Many thanks for the help.


Paindemonium0

Completely random! The most lucrative set up is doing 2 Gold / 1 Silver, and dropping any 5 and 7-Silver bar orders once you've unlocked the 3rd craft slot. I say drop specifically those orders because Gold Bars give you much more money per crafting bar in comparison to Silver (and they have a 2 hr vs 2hr 20 min difference of craft). You lose money waiting for large silver orders if they're blocking Gold orders from generating.


haven4ever

Oh cheers that's really useful thanks!


ennosigaevm

Greetings! I was wondering: how does Dante's basic attack works? It says that it removes the "Guard stance", but. . . which one is it? I mean. I tried when the enemy uses Taunt, but that's a different thing, yet I still tried and it doesn't remove it. Then I thought about the shields that enemy has, but. . . it doens't even work there? I tried to do the Trials with Olivine and his followers to test, but it doesn't remove it either. So. What's this "Guard stance"? I feel so dumb. BTW, my Dante's lv. 60, P6 and so on.


Paindemonium0

[Links you to this comment.](https://www.reddit.com/r/NuCarnival/comments/v2awd8/comment/ibb7wq7/?utm_source=reddit&utm_medium=web2x&context=3) But I am the author so I'll copy-paste it here as well :'D >It breaks Guard stance (the halved damage), but it does not remove excess HP shields, nor lift the Taunt ability. It's also single-target, so whichever enemy you use SR Quincy's ultimate skill on for that turn will disabled the damage halving, but only for that turn. All other effects that the monster's buffed itself with will still be active. > >[Here's what Guard break looks like](https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/953659016595251262/983162484154322994/guard_break.jpg) (note that damage done after SR Quincy's ultimate no longer has the 'guard' effect on it). > >[Here's another screenshot on an enemy](https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/953659016595251262/983163281046900816/guard_break2.jpg) that Guards and taunts, but does not generate extra shield (note that damage afterwards doesn't have the halved Guard effect).


SilentMix

It doesn't remove it permanently. It's only for that one turn. In that battle with Olivine and his followers, the soldier guy is in guard stance I believe every turn but the very first one. If you attack him without Dante, you should do less damage after the first turn. But if Dante were to attack first, it will remove the guard and then everyone who attacks after him should do the same damage that they did to the soldier on the first turn.

What’s the timezone for the game? I see a lot of people getting updates early and I’m not sure when mine will update in pst.

Everyone’s on the same game update time, but officially announcements are made on Taiwan’s time schedule. Game updates are not automatic on the app version and you have to go to the website yourself and install the update manually.

Is there a rough timeline on when we should expect the new event SSRs to be shown? I've been antsy waiting for this Edmond reveal.


190422Apr

Based on previous 2 unit events we should get Dantes reveal today and Edmond tomorrow. And if I remember correctly the PV should be next Wednesday the day before the event


yuusuno

Can someone explain how the limited time special contracts banner works? I really want SSR Blade from the summer event and only have 18 sorcery gems. Is there some sort of guarantee and how much do you need to actually spend to get it?


SilentMix

Those banners are ultimately only for whales. It still has pity the same way as normal event banners, and you do have the chance to pull Blade before reaching pity. If you do reach pity though, you are guaranteed to pull Blade on the Blade one since he's the only SSR on the banner. But the issue is it's 120 pulls to reach pity on it if you're unlucky - which costs 240 sorcery gems total since it's 2 per pull. Your 18 sorcery gems will only get you 9 pulls. If you're super lucky, it is possible to get Blade. But the likelihood is extremely small since they actually LOWERED the normal SSR rate for that banner too. Unless you're willing to spend real money, I would not suggest spending your 18 sorcery gems on it.


mtchick101

Is there a character that breaks the enemy block? I've been playing for a little over a month now and my main team is sorta lacking... something.


bitchyswiftie

SR Quincy's ultimate bypasses blocks


SilentMix

N-SR Dante is best for this since he does it with his basic attack, but N-SR Quincy can also do it - only with his ultimate skill (which takes 6 turns to charge) though.


vasogenic16

We didn't get a teaser today so are we only having 2 units?


SilentMix

It seems like it. I hope they go back to 100 pity while they're at it.

siliconrose

Hope they at least keep the step banners. They're overall a bad deal, and they're pay only, but at least it's a way to guarantee the banner characters.

Alright, same issue as last update, can't download the new files for android. Tried everything already. If anyone has the apk files that I could download, I would be really gradeful


Paindemonium0

You might be able to access the APK link on desktop, download there, and then send it to your phone later. Any luck yet?


Aheira

Got it, ironically, from Twitter. Someone posted link with the apk data


Paindemonium0

That's fine if you trust the source! Some users got the IPA and APK downloads mirrored on personal google drives for when the website decides it's not a good day.

Hello! To update the game, should I delete the old profile and install a new profile again? (IOS) I’m scared it might delete all my data…


Paindemonium0

Yes, the new iOS direct download / Profile download method's been updated. Game progress data is saved to the account so if you are bound to an Ero-Labs account, just re-login after installing. If you've been playing on a Guest account, progress won't automatically transfer over. If you have not bound, you will need to email [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) Customer Service to recover the account. Hopefully you've saved your UID!


kalming

Just wonder if I should continue investing in SR Kuya (or Aster or maybe someone else)? My current team consists of SSR Idol Yakima (2*), SR Yakumo (2*), SSR Idol Olivine (2*), SR Kuya (2*), and SR Morvay (2*). I also have SR Aster (2*), SR Garu (2*), SR Blade (2*), SR Edmond (1*), SR Olivine (1*), and SR Quincy (1*).


Paindemonium0

Your current team's alright, and having 2\* Idol Yaku and a 2\* SR Yaku early in the game makes your life fairly smooth sailing if you keep both of their levels up with the rest of your team. I agree on switching out SR Kuya and bring in SR Aster, and that's potentially your team for the most of clearing content! A buffer, a healer for supports. A Tank. And two DPS, both of which can qualify as Single-Target, with Idol Olivine pretending he's an AoE at the top of every wave.


SilentMix

SR Aster would do more damage than SR Kuya. He has the advantage of being able to heal himself with his vampire leech effect after doing his ultimate skill. Also, Morvay and Aster BOTH get attack bonuses if they're both in the party. Swapping out Kuya and putting in Aster is the only change I would suggest right now.


meridianmer

Do you get experience towards your Mojo level after finishing Chapter 10? I've been holding off on claiming the two EXP boosts for clearing 10-10 to save them for the next event, but then I remembered I'd done the same for another chapter in the past and accidentally delayed increasing my Mojo level as a result.


Paindemonium0

Nah. Chapter 10 Part 1 grants 5 contracts, but no Mojo exp, so good idea of holding those Stamina quest rewards until next time.


meridianmer

Perfect, thanks a lot!


retrosprinkles

I haven’t been able to load the game on android for like a week? Am i doing something wrong or is there a known issue?


Paindemonium0

You got good timing, the new [Tech Help wiki page](https://www.reddit.com/r/nucarnival/wiki/tech-help/) was just set up today. The most glaring issue on Android is people closing the app / phone screen turning off during the Resources download when the game updated itself on the July 28th update, resulting in a lot of people seeing the game quit out after seeing the 18+ Warning and producer logos screen. The solution is uninstalling, re-installing, then letting the phone sit while occasionally poking the screen so it doesn't go to sleep so it downloads the update all in one go. It's a fairly big download of 2 gb, so make sure your device has enough space as well. Hope that helps you out!

Thank you!!

Does anyone know if Kuya or Dante ever bottoms? Thanks!

I've been praying we eventually see the characters flip during special events, but that has not happened so far. Evidence points to it not happening either. There are a lot of fans who strongly believe in the seme/uke dynamic as a permanent, inflexible thing and would be pissed off if there was a swap. I'm with you though, I'd love to see Kuya, Dante, and Quincy bottom...

'Tis a shame, just needlessly restrictive. Variety is the spice of life!

Not right now.

Ah thanks for the info, one can dream…

Does level of N/R allies effect the exploration drop? ​ I have 15 35 lvl N+R allies, so I am able to meet the conditions. But right now I have enough coins to push them to lvl 40. So my question is will it lead to increase in item drops or should I simply stick with lvl 35 allies.

Stick with 35. At the moment, the levels are confirmed to affect Level 1 and 2 explorations. Teams consisting of at least one level 30+ member may drop a Gold-tier material at very low chances, and if level 50 N/R cards increase the drop rate, it’s by fractions of a percentage.

Is there a general consensus on the best ways to spend memory crystals--particularly now that they can be used to buy keys? F2P, so I only have about 2000 right now. My instinct would be to ascend some of my event SSRs to level 2 (maybe KD Kuya and OB Yakumo?) but maybe that won't make a difference or it's better to keep saving until I can three-star one of them instead... Is ascending the way to go? And, if so, are there certain characters that are better than others to ascend? Is it worth it to 2-star any or should we save a bunch and 3-star one with a really good kit?

It's more worth it to ascend event characters over the regular SSRs, given that some banners previously had a chance to drop the regular SSRs. That being said, I'm not sure how this is changing due to the current idol banner. I would just use gems to buy keys and not the crystals, because if it is going to be standard that the regular SSRs won't be added to event banners it's going to be the most reliable way to ascend them in that case. Personally, I prioritize ascension of DPS characters rather than support characters. For instance, I have both KD Kuya and BM Quincy. However, in the case of Quincy, because he is a tank with a 2-turn taunt, I find that depending on the instance I need SR Morvay's 1-turn taunt + shield instead due to the timing of the ults on enemy stages. For KD Kuya, because he is really most useful on when you are fighting an individual boss and not a group, I did not bother ascending him because most of the time I'd rather bring a tank + healer or tank + buffer. Since these characters' usages vary I would prefer to ascend a character that I would without fail to bring to every fight, which is my SSR Edmond, RA\* Olivine.

I think using them for ascending your SSRs (and primarily event ones) is the best way to go. The best characters to ascend are whatever ones you use or are interested in using in battle. 1 star SSRs very quickly get outclassed by SRs. You only need to get the SR to 3 stars, which isn't really that difficult. I think it's worth ascending to 2 stars, ESPECIALLY if you haven't used a key for the 2nd intimacy room. Not only does it give you the stat boost from 2 stars, but it also lets you do intimacy rooms 2-4, which will give you further stat boosts. This makes the event SSRs more viable (assuming you pulled only 1 copy during the event). But you can also over time save up memory crystals to try to 3 star them for your very favorites and most useful ones. I personally think the key buying option is really for whales, because they would have more memory crystals simply because they're doing more pulls.
