Fate/Grand Order – Christmas comes early…

Well crap….Fate/Grand Order’s Christmas event starts on Friday.

My original plan was to take advantage of the Thanksgiving event’s 1/2 AP daily quests to level up the servants I ascended during GudaGuda Honnouji and get my Christmas bonus servants ready… well, that’s out the window.


I did manage to get Waver up to level 60, but he’s still not really gonna be that great until I unlock his third skill and start leveling them up. And Cú Chulainn is maxed out at level 70, and I did manage to get Julius Caesar and Jing Ke up to level 60, and Robin Hood up to level 55, so I could be doing worse on Christmas bonus servants. (Poor Medea Lily is NP2 and still at level 1.)

But whatever experience I get over the next couple of days is going to have to be saved for Santa Alter… and hopefully I will manage to have 30 SQ to roll for event craft essences before it starts.

I was expecting to see the London story chapter first, with Christmas coming later in the month so it would actually still be around for the holiday.

If we’re lucky, we’ll get London when Christmas ends. But they could be rushing Christmas so they can shove Saber Wars at us next — on the Japanese server, Saber Wars was loosely tied to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so they might want to have it come out with the North American release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi for us….

and that would leave pretty much no opportunity to level up Saber Gilles or try to summon (and level) a fifth saber class servant before the event… and little chance to accumulate an SQ to roll for the event craft essences.

I’m guessing the game is not going to slow down anytime soon, but it would sure be nice if it did.

If you’re playing Fate/Grand Order, are you excited about the early arrival of Christmas? Or were you hoping for more time to get ready?
