might've missed it if already mentioned, but did the Dana boss with Alchemist, the beer counter still increased very slowly and the fight just ended in victory a little after 2 minutes, even though Dana still had ~15% HP left
do pristine versions of old paradues units get new art or index entries on old servers? im looking at these shiny gunners on lite maps that we cant collect art of lol
Separate entries, new descriptions, but same art (just zoomed out) unless there’s some other difference I’m not seeing. [Abandoned](https://i.imgur.com/91rTLDA.jpg) vs. [Carwashed](https://i.imgur.com/spOFEio.jpg) Gladiators.
ty. the abandoned ones are honestly so mismatched with the portrait lol
'Bout to finally MOD 3 M4A1. Any suggestions who I should dump into next? M4 SOPMOD II and ST AR-15 are closest, followed by RO635 and all of 404, then KSVK, then everyone else with a MOD 3 miles behind them. So it's probably between Sop and Star.
SOP? Why? Her 8 second grenade makes her really meh. I'd do 416/G11/KSVK first, with RO/45 being modded in spare time. Then STAR/SOP/rest of 404.
Also, the 'see less use' is nonsense, we'll see the events in which that happens in 2+ years, no reason to miss on the results she will produce till then especially in chapters/campaigns you still didn't do yet. You will need KSVK and 88 at least for RF squad.
Because SOP is level 113 anyway from having used her in teams so much for several years.
Still haven't gotten 88, but hopefully Production RNG will give me a break over summer. Thanks for the advice.
I would reconsider KSVK mod since she'll start to see less use due to newer enemies can counter her or at the very least make her life harder.
I'd move up 416 instead of STAR since that nade is just really good.
Thanks. I'm currently only up to 8-6 since that was a wall for me last year since I relied on just a few busted Collab Dolls up until then, so I'll just MOD KSVK either passively or down the line.
Ro, g11(if u have the fccs for her too), star. Ksvk too, if u have something to debuff enemies. 45 is fine at mod1. Soppo and 416 have good mods, but not that high of a priority.
If u really wanna pick 1 of those 2, star.
Thanks. My summer goal was to get as many AR/404 members MOD 3'ed for L2D's as possible, but since that's about as likely as a Gunslinger Girl rerun, figured I'd see what would actually be productive.
Also reminded me I need to save for more FCCs. So long, Black Market combat reports.
Doing the last minute event sweeps.
Is there just the single achievement for the collab, or is there another hidden about?
There ~~are two hidden ones.~~ is just one hidden achievement plus one hidden stage.
For the achievement, >!clear Adolescence EX without entering combat once.!<
For the secret stage, >![Habanera, must be unlocked and completed.](https://youtu.be/WzmoGvH0jcQ)!<
What's the name of the second achievement? I couldn't find it and I have done that stage with and without Jill :-/
Ah hell, maybe I'm mistaken. There's one hidden achievement and one hidden stage, and the hidden stage doesn't reward anything but a handful of cores. Sorry to mislead!
I was going slowly insane you ass! I'm glad I checked back here.
Hehe. No worries, but I am glad you said something, I kept scouring online to try and find the name of it and was finding nothing.
Don't worry, I got the other one thanks to you anyway, tyvm :)
Glad I asked!
\*Batman "don't leave me!" picture but it's me hugging the VA-11 Hall-A collab*
I don't know what part I'll miss the most. The bar scenes and the story bits are archived, the music is available elsewhere, and I got all of the characters and items. Maybe I'll miss the somewhat high core rate from 140ish runs of Truth or Dare normal plus the actually decent amount of EXP it gave my 5HG squad. I wish I wrote down what levels everyone started at before this event!
I'm also going to miss getting the full Jill's Apartment set by one whole damned Holo-Plant. It came down to it or the Megachristmas Tree, and I burned Exchange Tickets for the latter. You'll never guess what I later pulled with the last of my Tokens!
Same here, I love the VA-11 Hall-A Collab
>You'll never guess what I later pulled with the last of my Tokens!
can we add this to the EN brane hall of fame?
Sure, why not?
u/KookyInspection come collect your first official entry lol
Guess it's time to start taking notes :P
So... I ran new account to 8-5 without friend echelons again, actually recorded it this time with plans to make a post... Only I screen recorded in HDR with a program that apparently can't handle HDR, fantastic. 3rd times the charm right?
I love it. Post removed by spam filters. Good job Reddit!
Reworks/new events/changing metas are making the usual fairy commentary pages (ATM/GFC) feel quite outdated, so I've [drafted up](https://big-stupid-jellyfish.github.io/GFMath/pages/fairy-reviews) a more modern set of comments. Any thoughts/questions/comments/concerns welcome - it's a lot of text, so I'm sure there are still unnoticed errors or other oversights. Haven't gotten to test the new Rocket/Defense much so my comments there are very generic.
Fairy talent rate data piece also coming soon - just waiting on logistics for the resources to (hopefully) smooth out my calibration data and finish a few fairies.
Some clueless ENlets might be confused with this *But if your tanks are immortal* context without mentioning Flashbang ammo. I'd give that worth of mention.
Makes sense, thanks! Adjusted to-
> But if your tanks are immortal due to that armor buff & flash shells, does that really matter?
Yes, much better with its proper context included.
Haven't gotten very deep in it but might be worth either grouping ranking/collab units separately. You have them marked but doesn't really push home the little to no chance of you ever getting one if you don't already have it.
That's fair - probably simplest to put them all together in the unobtainables club [like so](https://i.imgur.com/sQ90zaf.png). I do like the pure alphabetical sorting for ease of navigation, but on the other hand I don't think anyone actually needs an opinion on the Golden/Cooking fairies now.
That's actually pretty close to what I was thinking, just with a quick note explaining the justification for separating them beyond just different sources. I did appreciate the alphabetical once I got to the 3rd fairy and realized that's how it was listed.
i now have 52 Stellas
i fully intend on farming until the game kicks me out for maint
good luck and godspeed friend. i hope youre the one they mention in the statistical review.
gimme one so i can focus on sei. i finally just started farming because reasons, and i still need to sleep
just want one dup for rerun mementos lol
i will trade you one for a flash shell
deal. MICA, MAKE THE TRANSFER HAPPEN!
*due to spagetti, the 2 are combined and a new enemy faction is born*
Farming Sei and Stella? Or am I going nutty?
stella farming is this close to driving me insane, i dont wanna add someone else to farm to that lol
He's only simping for stella. Sei was the one most farmed last valhalla run
As a new player is there something I can fuck up badly or I can just chill?
KNow about not scraping ar team
Be careful about raising 5 stars early on as the cost an absurd amount of cores to upgrade which could slow your progress.
Not as big a problem nowadays since the career quests can make room for one.
If one pulls 416 or G11 then you can replace SOP or AR15 respectively for the first team.
Scrapping collab dolls' exclusive equipment. As you won't be able to recuperate them.
Kind of the same for the equipment gotten from mod3 as you would need to mod3 the same doll again.
That is, until the client gets updated as you will be able to recuperate the equipment. Don't know if it's only the equipment scrapped after the update.
only equips scrapped after the update would be recoverable iirc
One thing you can potentially screw up would be wasting the gems you get from completing the missions (and even then you still get enough from monthly login and weekly shares, so even if you mess up, it's nothing permanent). Make sure to prioritize unlocking 6 echelons fairly early, then you'll be set.
It's pretty much impossible. Just don't spend cores unwisely until u can drag 0-2(which is the first proper core farm). Look into 0-2 dragging guides to see how it's done/what u need. Other than that, everything u do will add value to ur account, not substract or prevent u from doing stuff. Ofc, u can invest in stuff in the wrong ordee, which will slow ur progression, but that doesn't mean the efficient avenue is prevented. For example, u can decide to invest batteries in data storage instead of sf impulse generator. Which means u're increasing something u don't necessarily need at the expense of losing free sf capture rolls every day. U can always invest in the generator later, but u'll need to wait for the batteries to accumulate again.
Agent acquired. No bombing runs used. Oathed and maxed leveled. Feels good to get my primary target. Now I still have 75 tickets left over for Alina. Beach Archie and Moth Hunter are also on my list.
Agent said something about taking out the current head maid and replacing her in her oath line. She said it was just a joke, but I should keep her away from G36....
The Maid Wars are coming
Using new reddit here. Selecting the CN/KR/TW flair always results in "There are no posts in this subreddit"
It appears to be because the flair contains the / character. [Found someone else reporting the same issue here.](https://www.reddit.com/r/help/comments/uilhbk/post_flair_filter_is_not_working_on_flairs_with/)
I haven't been able to find a workaround, but hopefully Reddit fixes that.
Note that the search by flair still works on [old Reddit](https://www.reddit.com/r/girlsfrontline/search?sort=new&restrict_sr=on&q=flair%3ACN%2FKR%2FTW).
This rate up was pretty great! I mainly focused on equipment and Fairy rate ups
For the equipment rate up, I spent an approximate 550 equipment contracts rolling 50-250-150-150 almost exclusively, with some hiccups when I forgot to reset the formula after restarting the game. I was able to get 69 pieces (nice!) of 5 star equipment
According to [this infographic](https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FJ9AxuZVIAYjEtP.jpg), I'm still short on sniper rounds, flashbangs, and flares. I'm hoping I'll be able to get them very soon
As for the Fairy rate up, I had some time to recover my rations after spending a good chunk of them in the equipment rate up. 3-1 was a great help when recovering my rations (along with other logistics missions)
I was gunning for Para-chan, and I spent 140 crafts in search for her. I was able to get 48 Fairies out of this (including multiple copies of Para-chan, with the 140th craft being my last copy of her from this rate up). I then switched over to fodder crafting with the basic 500x4 formula, and I was able to craft 93 times with 27 fodder Fairies to come out of this. As for 5 star equipment, I was able to get an additional 6 pieces
I'm now running pretty low on manpower and rations, but I think I'll manage. I think I'll give the 16 daily crafts a try going forward
welp after over 100k MP and 310 quick contracts, finally have a parachute fairy with assault talent.
on the plus side, also finally managed to get shield & artillery too, though also with meh talents
might switch to 4x2000 recipe after resources recover, try to nab rocket, and I guess combo & construction to complete the collection
> 4x2000 recipe
I think you're better off using the 5/20/20/10 or 20/5/20/10 recipes. If you want the fairies for both recipes, just alternate between them. Otherwise, you're just going to be diluting the pool but not substantially increasing your chances to get the fairies you want, considering the higher resources invested.
Data : (https://gf-db.github.io/gfdb/gfdb.html?mp=2000&ammo=2000&mre=2000&part=2000&tier=1&type=fairy_recipe&epoch.fairy=22.2) (https://gf-db.github.io/gfdb/gfdb.html?mp=500&ammo=2000&mre=2000&part=1000&tier=1&type=fairy_recipe&epoch.fairy=22.2) (https://gf-db.github.io/gfdb/gfdb.html?mp=2000&ammo=500&mre=2000&part=1000&tier=1&type=fairy_recipe&epoch.fairy=22.2) (https://gf-db.github.io/gfdb/gfdb.html?mp=500&ammo=500&mre=500&part=500&tier=1&type=fairy_recipe&epoch.fairy=22.2)
FYI, 4x2000, like all recommended recipes, is overpriced. Either go for parachute-specific 2000/500/2000/1000 or 2000/2000/2000/1000 for all possible fairies.
I have cleared The Last Rain in the World and my progress is still 24/25, what am I missing?
You need to unlock the bonus stage Habanera. [Follow this guide](https://youtu.be/WzmoGvH0jcQ)
So I just started and apparently this current event ends today. And I'm a VALHALLA fan, so that's a big Oof.
Is there anything at all I'll be able to get out of it on short notice?
Dana is a reward for clearing the first map, Jill is map reward for the final stage. Stella and Sei are farmable.
Dorothy and Alma are buyable from the event shop, but unfortunately event currency is capped at 80 per day, and they both cost 150.
if you grind like mad you can probably get the first 4, but you'll have to be quick about it.
Poor guy said he just started. Doubt he has the dolls and logistics to support a mad grind :(
oh shit didn't notice the just started part lol
Can he get anything with the lite map versions, or are they just for story? I haven't tried them so i dunno how they work
lite maps are just glorified cutscenes that only give you cores and stuff as map clear rewards
no doll drops as well
Is it possible to complete the event and get Jill with only Lite maps ?
Jill is clear reward for Normal, Lite just rewards some cores iirc
Uff, that's a rip then
Indeed. Stella would be the #1 one I want of the bunch, and while I'd certainly like to get Dorothy, missing out on most of the others wouldn't be the end of the world.
I spent most of my second day playing farming Sei. You should be able to look up a guide on it but I pretty much used a level 60 pistol or two and accidentally corpse dragged them through a single fight against the Goliath one space down from the helipad and then retreated ~40 times for the drop.
I really hate to say it, but as much as i'd like to cheer u on, i think it's best to let this one go. The glimmer of hope i can give u is that we might have a rerun later down the road, since this event is a rerun of the valhalla collab. It won't be anytome soon, but maybe u'll get to see another one.
The reason i'm saying this is that while gfl is very f2p friendly and with no hardcore stamina system, it still has a bit of a learning curve, so u'd need to read some guides, and without logistics that add to ur resources, u will probabpy be unable to fight too much. (Normally resources are not an issue, the hardcap is 300k each and u use 50/fight tops, but it takes a bit to get the game to that sort of economy). I didn't try lite mode maps, but i understood u don't fight with ur own squads, so u probably can use guides to clear the event that way, but afaik u don't get the farm routes that way. U'd need to check if u get the clear rewards, but if not... really big oof.
If u decide to shelve the collab, it's best to start properly with the normal maps, and we highly recommend reading some starting guides. I personally like the ones on matsuda gfl. The site's on life support, but the guides are still relevant, and they teach u how to think rather than telling u to do this. It's esp important in squad formation, since u'll need to change ur dolls according to the enemy u face.
Also, as u play, u'll get members of the ar squad. Other than m16, all of them are very good dolls that u will use even in end-game, esp m4, star and ro. So don't dismiss them on account of them being free dolls. They are true powerhouses.
The doll production has low rates, but u use ig resources to roll with, and the dolls are there permanently. So eventually u'll get all of the production dolls. Event drop dolls are not something u can craft, but every event has some of the old dolls as drops which u can farm for. There's no way of knowing when we get who, but in time u'll see them all as well. And there's a pity mechanic for farming too.
The big monetisation method is from skins. This is the closest part to the usual gacha game: limited banner, u spend tokens that u can both farm a bit every day and buy with gems(the premium currency). The skins are cosmetic only, and even if they're limited, u do have a way of getting past skins, although that's a bit complicated and needs some planning. We'll talk about that later if u're interested.
Speaking of gems, u also get some as a guaranteed income every week, which is why we say the game is f2p friendly. Won't be fast, but u can get everything u want without spending a dime. This includes increasing various slots.
Oh, to increase resource genration ig it's best to unlock later chapters asap, since that's where the more efficient logistics lie. To do this u can abuse friend echelons. (U can field echelons from friends u've added, and send them to capture the enemy base or fight enemies for u). They can carry u up to around chapter 7 or maaaybe even 8. Sadly no, u can't use them on event maps.(to get friends i recommend dropping ur id here amd ppl will add u. Maybe drop it tomorrow too, because that's when it resets and a new lounge starts :P
the ig friend finder tends to recommend similar lvl commanders)
Well, last but not least, if u have any questions, feel free to ask us, we're here for u :D
That's about all i can think of right now for a new player. Maybe someone has a way for u to get some valhalla dolls, as i said, i don't have mucb experience with the lite version of maps and how they work/what u can get from them.
Anyway, even if it took a while, let me say... welcome, shikikan! o7
Building first MGSG team, what is generally good equipment on MG? Gamepress guide always suggest crit scope but doesnt red dot sight better for giving both accuracy and crit, and MG usually lack Acc? Also Mg use riffle rounds or SLAP rounds?
critscopes for enemies with no evasion, RMRs otherwise. for ammo you can just use SLAP all the time tbh, the -5 rof only affects MG reload time, and ideally the enemies would be dead by the end of the first barrage anyways.
> Mg use riffle rounds or SLAP rounds?
Depends on your enemy armor.
So, is there a use for deploying 14 Parachute Fairies simultaneously?
Current practical limit is 12 at once for Fixed Point (and also DR Hole 1 but that’s in the past).
Could go to 13 if we can theorycraft a HOCless solution to one of the FP deathstacks but that hasn’t been very successful.
making lucklets cry
To justify the dedicated “Flight of the Valkyries” hotkey you’ve installed.
And that’s it for the rate-ups. Managed to slightly improve my equipment situation (severely lacking flash ammo but that’s ok for the time being). As for fairies, my second parachute is now 4 stars and only missing 900 points. After getting her to 5 stars, I plan to finish working on Defense fairy, which is 350 points away from max and then work towards upgrading my combo fairy. Overall, I guess, I am satisfied with the results.
"Can't you hear me yell-a?"
Farming, farming, farming!
Nothing on you, though! Didn't you do like 1200 runs or something!?
1300+ now lol
I fully intend to continue farming the shit out of the event until the game inevitably kicks me out tomorrow because of maint
my game is kinda weird on bluestacks, its running fine and dies randomly after some hours, sometimes even when its full idle it just abandons its life and crashes, is that common on emulators or i need to do something to fix that?
also i remember somewhere saying they were going to rework the energy dailies, but when?
Something i noticed back in the day was that if leaving the game in the homescreen, after a while, it would crash when logistics were coming back. The "fix" was actually pretty easy: if i left the game open and unattended for a period of time, i'd just leave open another screen(any other). Then when i was ready to collect the logistics, i'd go back to main screen and it'd work. This solved about 80% of the issue. Sometimes it would still crash, but it was much more rare. This was on mumu. (How to tell if logistics was the cause: after the crash, i'd have 3 logistics running instead of 4. Meaning it crashed after one returned and before i could send it back. )
Ldplayer however seems more stable. I do have crashes here and there, but they are rare enough that i don't mind, like 1-2/week.
So if u notice similar symptoms, try not to leave the game in standby in the main screen. I know it sux not to see exactly when the logistics return, but it's something u can get used to and work around.
I used to play on MuMu and it was the same. I guess it's just the nature of emulators
I play on Bluestacks as well: I get errors that time my session out and return me to the title screen, or sometimes the game will crash on startup.
i dunno about the bluestacks issue, but combat sim rework is part of client 2.09, which we will be getting soon™ (aka sometime this year, before the next major event)
i just realized that i still dont have combo fairy lol
Yeah, weird thing about it is when it came out I heard it mentioned as a mid priority raise due to some big plays you can make in ranking and then not once did I see it recommended for ranking teambuilding.
It's useful in very niche cases, and yet expensive to raise. And unlike the other fairies in the 5/20/20/10 recipe, it's a kind of statstick, so you still need her to be high rarity to be really useful (the other three are fine with high skill).
So I think overall, too few people have it raised (if you have the fairy fodder for it, better raise another para) to justify putting it in guides.
That's probably because there's not many obvious scripted moments where you can sweep across a ton of enemies, so it can't be specifically recommended.
I used it in a couple of my DR map 2 runs where after retreating my Para last turn I redeployed the team with combo and cleared mobs. I could guarantee that power turn without suffering no skill on the next turn.
Which fairy is safe to be enhance fodder, or simply noone until you reach 5* for 1 copy?
barrier (not shield, shield is actually good), reinforcement, defense are basically fodder. landmine and construction i really don't see a use for except maybe ranking stuff, rocket got a rework but i'm not sure if its good or not.
Automatic fodder: Barrier.
Arguably not worth raising/could be fodder: Airstrike, Fury, Warrior (to a lesser extent).
Of course, it's never worth using any of these on the other 500x4 fairies - they (\*the fairies listed above) are only fodder for event/para/other rare fairies.
I see you qualified it, but a bit surprised you didn't put more emphasis on holding at a minimum 1\* Airstrike for 8-1N.
~~Definitely didn't forget that was a thing, despite just finishing my armored weeklies there.~~ Yeah, probably worth keeping one around for that.
Heard that bombardment and taunt is actually good fairies for 500x4, should I raise them?
Definitely. All the 500x4 fairies not listed there are worth raising a copy of.
Artillery is the 2nd best fairy for raw stats for a while (Command being the best), and Taunt can block a *lot* of damage in many fights.
Ah i read it wrong I thought you meant all of 500x4 fairies are not worth raising
I play since the start of the game but I didn't catch up with the RF meta since a year or so.
I have all the dolls maxed out and I want to know which RF teams are meta defining.
Are MG teams still niche?
How about SF units? I got Agent, Archi, Gager and alchemist.
Is the AR team with Anni, M4, 45, STAR and P22 still good?
And the biggest carry question,
what teams are good as RF teams? as I said at the beginning I maxed out every Doll but don't know which are good and which are bad
MG teams still don't get much use, but it's good to have some of them levelled for some fights just in case. Or for Theater CE stacking if you're into that.
SF units are pretty good. The free Scarecrow offers great map control, Agent is basically a parachute fairy, Archi can be a bootleg atw HOC that you can deploy even if there's no heavy helipads, Alchemist is just downright broken it's hilarious. Just grab a pair of Manticores to go with them and you'll be fine.
AR Team is still good, but G11 with her mod is now stronger than AN-94. You might also want an offtank smg there like Vector instead of P22 during day.
Regarding RF teams, that's a pretty broad question. The old meta RFs are still good like WA/Lee/M14 mod, Grape is still a god, but we now have dolls like KSVK and Hanyang mod which are very strong RFs, especially KSVK mod with the right team setup. There's also specialists like M200 for stuff like Patrollers.
Oh thanks... so it's most of my RF teams still meta... Men what happened for the last Year. I mean... it's nice to not change much but... It's sad that I have no use for the others
meta comps are really only encouraged for late game stuff like rankings/ex stages/if you want to make your life easier, for general content anyone is usable provided that you put them in proper echelons. they'll do the job just fine.
I think it's really just for Ex stages and late game content. Rankings are kinda dead. I saw the video from the last Major event where a guy was in the top 50% in just 3 minutes
well DR ranking was stupid easy lol, and lots of people padded the bottom ranks because of how the event missions were presented.
you can get top 50% easy, but if you wanna be in the upper ranks (think top 5% and up), you're gonna want strong teams for clearing deathstacks and such.
not that there's not much benefit in ranking high except for some more rewards and bragging rights, but that's the whole point of ranking high.
[This feels terribly wrong](https://i.imgur.com/3rocoJb.png).
Rateup has been pretty rough so far - currently at a ~25% fairy rate with ~100 2/2/2/1 crafts, vs [a ~35% expected rate](https://gf-db.github.io/gfdb/gfdb.html?mp=2000&ammo=2000&mre=2000&part=1000&tier=1&type=fairy_recipe&epoch.fairy=26.0).
Parachute Fairy is just cute Sinistar.
"[RUN, COWARD! I HUNGER!](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-XEINagmaU)" she cries as she eats her sisters.
Actually on-topic, I don't have any actual data, but I've been striking out badly on 500x4 T2 crafts. I *did* get Sniper Fairy at a last, but there have been a lot of non-fairies. RIP my equipment vouchers.
FWIW a few Annivs ago I saw some data implying that 500x4 T2 got the shit end of the stick in terms of fairy rate up, might be bs but I’ve been avoiding it and have been doing decently well
I take it that you already have the Defense and Combo Fairies maxed out?
Yup. [Still getting there with the other expensive fairies, though](https://i.imgur.com/bTmLzI7.png).
This is my official complaint/gripe/moan about trying to get Python. I have ran CT's stage 'General Offensive' 50 times with 3 enemy drops + S clearing the stage each time. Half way though i have started using the SF skill 'pilfer' at extra attempts on top of it.
Now listen here Python, I got a wonderful echelon for you with a complete set of 5* furniture, and wonderful pets. Hell, I could probably 100% my dorms satisfaction if thats what it would take (even if medals would fill then up).
I got nothing but the best equipment for you. You dont even have to corpse-drag, just please come home already.
Go to stumbling block, harder stage ofc but more checks and (empirically) seems people get drops a lot quicker there
What are some of the recommended SPEQs to farm? I've already got AR15, M16, 416, and I bought Type 88's from the store. Is UMP45's worth getting? And which other ones are also good to get? Thanks!
45's SPEQ also applies to UMP9 and UMP40. However, you don't need to get 45's equip since it's just a glorified exo and is more expensive than a regular exo to max out. But could worth considering to get if you want to tryhard Theatre.
Aside from the mentioned MP5 exo, Stechkin's buttstock is the only other one that stands out to me. Most of the night/black market SPEQs don't do nearly enough to fix the dolls they're for.
Yep, 45's speq is good to get. MP5's exoskeleton is also very good (+58 evasion, fixing her low base evasion).
Ump is one of the better ones, yes, but not as important as it was back in the day. It's a free exo in the end. I think mp5's is also worth it, but i don't remember how one gets that.
I forgot what the other farmable speqs are, but while u get 45's someone will come with a more comprehensive answer.
My insane attempt at collecting 300k resources for a month finally paid off
I got... three parachute fairies. I don't know whether it's worth it or not, but I'm fairly happy with this.
On my way to become a meta slave
Congrats! Parachute Fairies are rather rare, so having multiple copies would be useful. Just make sure you have the skill data. Fully enhancing one takes a lot of time, however, but you'll feel the surge of power once you finally do get one maxed out
I just crafted my first Parachute fairy! Should I keep using the 2k/500/2k/1k or 2k/2k/2k/1k recipe to try for more Para fairies? Or should I switch back to 500x4 for the basic fairies/fodder for my Parachute? Thanks!
Depends, what are you most likely to run out of first? Cores, quick productions, or resources? Adjust accordingly, if you’re about to run out of cores then sure why not go all out on more para recipes, if you’re short on resources or time/quick prods then maybe bump it up to T2 to squeeze a bit better rates out of the last few rolls, etc
It's good to have a few paras on hand *eventually* for ranking, but even then you'll get one free with the 2.09 client update (whenever that comes).
I'd probably switch back to 500x4 - getting the basic fairies to 5\* is more important, and it's more efficient for raising a para after that's done.
Personally I'd keep doing more parachutes since this rate up is probably the only time when it's worth it to do the expensive pull
500x4 is mostly doable for the weekly mission
What are your personal goals for girls frontline? I posted that I was getting bored of the game a while back and commenters told me I needed a goal to work towards to keep the game engaging. Still haven't figured it out but I figured I'd ask.
Also is 416's grenade targetting supposed to be kind of off sometimes? I am running her on 12-4e and sometimes it annihilates all the enemies and sometimes it hits to the side and kills a small portion of the enemies
Grenades supposedly target based off some fucky weighted density of enemy hp (IE it takes the position and current hp of all enemies and picks a point averaged among those, favoring the high hp values), which means that even if a grenade is able to hit all enemies in a comp, it may not sometimes due to variable miss/crit rolls skewing the hp weight position too far in a certain direction. It’s also why grenades will often prefer to hit one guard over 3 jaegers
On the topic of goals though, it’s to experience the story and gameplay going along with said story, along with a sense of competitiveness in ranking. Basically I can’t think of any other game I’ve played where I could legitimately have a chance of appearing on a global leaderboard and that excites me, and I also enjoy the ways I have to put on my thinking cap between ranking gameplay and hashing out the lore and world building presented through the story
My goal is to beat every piece of content with a no dupe collection
I’ve named my personal challenge “Noah’s Closet”. The gist is to raise an equal number of every Doll as she has costumes (except default skin) to max level. For example, G36 has nine costumes (including her mod skin), so I’ll raise nine copies of her. UMP45 has eight, so I’ll raise eight copies of her, and so on. I will make an exception to 6 star mods since I need FCCs, and this is incredibly difficult to get a lot of, so I will limit myself to at least only one of each such mod
Of course, Dolls that can’t be duped (like the AR Team) will stay at one copy, no matter how many costumes they get
I’m in the middle of raising some of the poor quality mods, but I’m making some headway
Hmm, let's see.
Three-medal every stage.
Have one of every feasibly attainable T-Doll, max level, max skill, max affection.
Same for Coalition units, but max petal too.
And Fairies at five stars.
And equipment, but also have a full set of golds at max calibration and +10 to reliably kit out...
And 14 dorms!
And all on a zero-dollar budget. So, uh, long-term goals? And that's if I don't end up dropping the game at some point.
I'd also add "Oath every Doll", but at 580 a pop, and let's just say I'd need 400 of them, that'd be a cost of 232,000 Gems, and if I get 420 a month, it'd take 553 months or somewhere in the neighborhood of ***46 years*** to do that! So, no.
For me, mod 3 every girl that has that option. Have all dolls at max lvl. That'll keep me busy for a while :P that said, i'm not working too hard towards those goals. It's more like a direction i'm heading in.
And yes, grenades are a bit rng in their targeting. Sometimes they clear the enemy, other times they whiff and utterly decimate a solo dinnergate while the rest of the sf gang cracks their knuckles with and evil grin. That's kinda why grenade doll sustained dps also matters quite a bit. However, sometimes ur formation can influence how many enemies the grenade will hit because it can stack them up nicely. I don't remember what 12-4 formation was supposed to be like, but if u are having big problems, that might be a reason. Look up some farming guides for the map on utube and see if there's anything u can spot.
But if u can clear the requirements, farm 13-4. Cheap, 100% consistent, no need for tank so 1 extra doll being lvled, and cheap if u have 1 link vectors. The only downside is that u won't lvl ur fairy most probably.
does playing until the servers shut down count as a goal
Last one out turns off the lights! :P
well, i made a poll, please read it and up/down vote regarding en brain moments :P
Before rescan: Aegis and 2 SWAP Guards
After rescan: Aegis and 2 SWAP Guards
Between this and three failed tries, Agent must hate me. Not going to help her - I have enough pulses and Svarogs to just empty the pool completely.
i dont remember exactly what my lineup was, but i rescanned today and got 3 more 2 stars too. i did get lucky and captured my first swap aegis though.
and yeah, i havent spent a single savrog ticket since SF capture was released. Agent will be joining G&K whether she wants to or not.
Yep, her attempts are just funny when ur fingers gently caress the nuclear button :P now i know how those evil masterminds feel in movies when they don't shoot the hero in the head. U wanna see them struggle and eat some popcorn watching the show :P
For every capture that's not Agent, I add one additional piece of decoration to the venue of her welcome party.
7 Sei in 45 EX run. WTF
Meanwhile 47 EX run with no Stella
would you like a Stella
Lol man, I heard of your feats
\>clear last rain in the world EX with Alche + Archi
\>"damn that took longer than I expected"
\>big brains into clearing lite version instead to be done with the event coz EX takes too long
\>take longer clearing lite than EX and end up using a guide for lite instead
\>realize I don't get EX and normal rewards from clearing lite
\>goes back to EX only to realize farming route is now open and clears it in 2 mins
Have I reached peak EN brain yet
If there's anything that makes you feel better a bit, I cleared the second run of EX by beating the boss again instead of going to the farming route below. Not to mention couples of retries just to beat the boss twice.
If u didn't, u're close!
I wonder if we should make a compilation... something like best of en brain 2022
what you should do is save that comment, and then paste everything you find over the course of the year in there.
i know there was someone that core masked origin then proceeded to pull her in heavy rate up somewhere in this lounge. that can be your second entry lol
Isn't that just the tcm law? U always pull the doll u tcmed? :P
But hmm... i guess i could do a compilation, and we can even vote for the best moments sometime in december.
I dunno if it's ethical, though. In theory skks already made their ENness public in this thread, but maybe they don't want to be remembered that way? I mean, we're pretty chill here and all, just having a friendly chuckle, and the enbrain was only used in a selfironical way, but would this change it in any way?
I kinda would like to see an en brain hall of fame, but i also want it to remain in good fun. Maybe sending a message to the "nominees" asking for their confirmation before publishing/putting their shenenigans up for vote would do? Or just make it all anonymous, like mica is handling event summary highlights
(For voting we'd need to probably ask a website owner to host the pool if we go that route)
Ffs, the more i think of it the more ideas i start to get, and i'm not sure if we should even do it :P
i didnt think this could get so deep
you could just keep it anonymous and paraphrase or simplify the stories into a bullet point i guess. maybe just add a tally if anyone ever repeated the stunt lol
Oh, i like the tally bit! Great idea! I was wondering how to deal with the not-so-funny-common ones.
Paraphrasing seems a bit counterproductive though, i think they'd lose their flavour, and that's prerty much what this would be about: laughing with the perpetrator :P
Well, first i'll see how the voting turns out. Don't wanna get too excited before i know if ppl are ok with this or not :P
not sure if there will be a difference in reception between front page folks and lounge folks for something centered around actual players, but gl
Wait, I think I remember a funny story in my case. I was trying to calibfeed a Para, only to end up calibrating the wrong Para, which was already at five stars with Damage II as Talent
I remember spending 9k resources just to get Damage II back
EN brain activate!
Oh, yeah, we have a contender for top stop! :D
Baaah, i'm starting to wanna do this.
Top stop or top spot?
What, i can't en brain? :P
i think you just peaked
is the anna graem fairy worth duping?
iirc she is sidegrade to warrior fairy. you know how often you use your warrior fariy, so there lies your answer
Nope, feed it to other fairies.
I used to play the game long time ago but all these guides and difficulty bothered me. Did the game become easier somehow? Can I actually play it without guides and not using brain much? Thanks
Well, it depends. What guides bothered u? Clearing guides or how to play guides(as in squad formations, fairies, etc)?
If it's the first, after u clear the chapters, the only thing left is dragging, and that's pretty much brainless mode.
And events currently have separate difficulties, so if u have end-game echelons, u can plow through in planning mode. So in that sense yes, it's easier but u will need to work quite a bit to reach that lvl. It's not just getting dolls to 90, u also need equipment and most importantly good fairies. It's not really difficult, but it will take a while. So using guides will probably be easier still in the meantime :P
But if u're planning on not reading any guides and just plopping whatever dolls u like the art of in an echelon, u'll be here asking what's wrong pretty fast, and we'll need to type so much it's probably gonna count as a guide as well :P
Anyway, come give it a shot, see if things changed on a way u enjoy, and if u have questions, we're here. Oh, if u didn't do the new iop quest rework, make sure u complete the chain exactly as it's indicated in the quest window. U won't get the rewards if u start in the middle or skip a quest.
There used to be this guide for dummies how to quickly start and set some strong echelons. Do you maybe have a link? Can't find it but it was not your regular newbie guide. Step by step sort of guide
Edit. Found it l. First echelon guide. Other question tho. How big is FOMO? Can I login every couple of days and still progress a little?
well, FOMO is very small. every doll added to the construction pool is there permanently, so there are no limited banners where u need to pull now or never get the doll, and big story events get added to the client permanently as well in the "campaign" section, so u can always play them too(it takes a while for them to be added, though, usually they get added after the next event has it's debut)
however, that doesn't mean it doesn't exist: event rewards are higher on release, then they are added to permanent campaign they have reduced rewards. to offset this, the most important rewards are awarded for clearing the event on normal difficulyt, hard mode being meant as a challenge for veterans and having just some extra resources(useful, but nothing u would miss as a normal player, no exclusive dolls or stuff like that). also, events are where old event dolls are added to the drop table, so a good farming opportunity. these dolls do not enter the production pool, so this is pretty much the only way to farm them. they are not gone forever, they always return from time to time, but there is no way to know when they will return.
so there is incentive to play & clear events when they are first released. however, they shouldn't be too difficult. generally, it's assumed ppl can clear an event on normal if they start a new account on event release. ofc, this would assume the player knows exactly how to progress, so it's not exactly something to expect, but it shows that with a minimum of effort, one should be able to clear events regardless of how casual they play.
the only stuff that u should not count on seeing ever again is collab. although they can rerun(we're just finishing a valhalla collab rerun right now), it's not something one can count on.
otherwise, ur progress will be directly proportional with how much u play. so even if u log in every couple of days, u will progress slowly, but more than if u didn't play :P
the expedition shop will help u out greatly if that's ur playstyle, since the squads will autodepart, and u can collect their bounty every couple of days, then combat reports and lvlup ur dolls with those. u should however try to log in for a few seconds every now and again every day to resend ur logistics so u have proper income. expedition squads will need resources to go out in the field, after all. but just logging in to press "next" 4 times shouldn't be too much of a bother.
It will slow you down noticeably because of logistics being limited to 24h max, combat sim energy and daily limits for event currency, but, especially with the forward basecamp which stores rewards for 3-4 days and protocol assimilation storing energy for 7 days, you can still progress even if you don't login every day.
Does old events have easy modes implemented too? Thanks
As far as I can tell, it was only from Isomer onwards that a difficulty switch has been implemented. This means that all events from Continuum Turbulence and earlier have only one difficulty mode
In a way, yes, since early game progression rewards were beefed up. You get a lot of extra resources like combat reports to quickly level up your Dolls
There is also the Forward Basecamp facility that lets you exchange currency exclusively gained from explorations for goodies like more combat reports and cores from the black market
Some stage gimmicks might still be difficult to solve without a guide, but for the most part, I think you can power through enemy formations more easily now, especially that we have other means of support like the HOCs. I'm not sure if you were around when Fairies were first implemented, but those also give support, too
hey will the valhalla stuff ever be available on the black card exchange? I caved, whaled and got all the costumes but had terrible luck with the furniture and I would like to finish off the set if I could.
No, collab stuff is time limited. Making the resources available at a later time is probably a breach of contract
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be the case. After all, it's been years since the first run, and the furniture sets don't seem to appear in the black card exchange
I finally got my first para fairy! And it even came with damage II on it already lol
Congrats! Love her and cherish her. She will bring you victory!
However, hard work still lies in front of you. You still need to bring Para-chan to her full power, and since she drops from the expensive pool, it's best that you use the 500x4 formula to get enhancement fodder for you
It also seems you are unwilling to calibrate her Talent, so you will need around 300 Fairies to be consumed as fodder. This is going to be a tall order, but once you complete this, Para-chan will gleam on the battlefield as you strike behind enemy lines, seizing a decisive advantage
It would be great if you can change your mind about calibrating her Talent, however, as calibfeeding will make your life a lot easier. You still need to get a minimum of 200 Fairies to use as fodder, but that's a huge improvement over 300. You just need to reserve some calibration tickets
New player here, and I didn't realize until today that you can only get a certain amount event tokens a day. I'll have just enough for Alma OR Dorothy, not both. Feels bad man
Yes, that's the case with all events, so keep it in mind from now on. There's even a little symbol on the event map selection screen under the map names that goes away once u got the max amount of tokens to make it easy to know if u still need to farm for the day.
P.s.- meta wise, get dorothy and her speq if u can afford it too.
Also, if u haven't yet, try to clear the event to get jill.
I'm finally free, with a 331/332 index (Nova where are you) my Dolls are all x5 linked. Cores are now only needed for mods at this point.
... but what about your SF?
I got bored and took a peek at the twitch vod of a KR restream of the 6th anniversary broadcast for chat reactions to things, and when the enemy at the end of the GFL2 PV transforms, it's all Starcraft memes in the chat lmao
Protoss Helian is now her official name and you can't change my mind
I know it’s probably been asked but I can’t find a definite answer. Roughly how far behind is en from cn. Wondering when I can expect sharkitect and mod 3’s. Thanks in advance
we're roughly one year or so behind
we'll probably have a mod batch later this month or in June, and iirc they're planning to release seasonal ringleaders on the appropriate seasons so Sharkitect will probably be on summer
Wasn't there a caveat that some seasonal don't work with our client? Though they didn't mention which ones.
Yeah, they did say that. There was also a [comment](https://i.imgur.com/v2Gqch9.jpg) from Hokor in Discord a few days ago that seems to suggest that we’re not getting Sharkitect this year.
more time to save for Sharkitect then
i honestly dont know lol
we should be getting 2.09 soon™ anyways so that shouldn't be much of a problem.....hopefully.
Please help, i cant see any five-seven in my cafe after clearing The last rain in the world multiple times
Wait, do you have extra intel points? If so, you might already have collected the intel points from interacting with Five-seven
No, I dont have any extra intel points, game doesnt even recommend me to go to cafe
Wait, let's try to cover our bases. You've already cleared The Last Rain in the World, so I expect that your progress to be 24/25. Is this correct?
I think that we should try to contact customer support just to be sure that things are going okay
As for other ideas I have, I think that you should try to [unlock the bonus stage if you haven't already](https://youtu.be/WzmoGvH0jcQ)
Well i dont have that bonus 100 intel points yet, so i cant do the bonus stage
I think one last idea I can think of for now is to clear the EX version of The Last Rain in the World. Did you complete only the normal version?
Randomly visited a commanders dorm and they had a different music track playing, what caused that?
It's probably a piece of furniture those commanders had. It's also likely that those commanders have a full set that came with that particular piece of furniture. I'm not very sure exactly which piece of furniture changes the music, but I know that those pieces come from a furniture set you can get from gacha
One example would be the orchestra dorm set. Another is the rock concert dorm set. I could be mistaken, but it could be the central stage furniture piece that changes the music
