Man, I love how the beginning of Babylonia is basically a dorm sitcom with the Servants.

[up][up]Apparently he's great, his NP gives him an attack buff based on OC (50%-100%) and a Crit buff based on level (same values) alongside 1-turn invincibility and taunt.

He can wreck quite a lot of shit.

EDIT: Oh, and it's got a Star Gather Buff with a static value of 300%, not bad, but giving him a CE with a similar buff would prob be for the best, just in case.

I'm glad to be seeing everyone loving the Uruk Slice of Life as much as they should. That's the heart of the Babylonia Singularity.

Amakusa's NP does damage too. And yes, Qin is quite good.

Urgh, I'm not looking forward to getting mats for him. I've already hit Yu's ascension wall - she needs gourds, or whatever they are.

[up]He's a Ruler, all he needs are statues and monuments, 5 for each class.

Also, the wiki says it's a bell.

Edit: Back in London, people complained about how the official translation didn1t capture the "voice" of the characters. Having just read the part of Ziusudra, I think that problem if officially over.

Admittedly I haven't read the English translations, but finding and keeping individual character voices is incredibly important.

Still early in Babylonia, but I like Merlin already. He has Awesome Ego down pat and anyone who can annoy Dr. Roman that much so quickly is good in my book.

I'm a little confused at them saying living people can't be Heroic Spirits though. I get that it's not supposed to happen but isn't that exactly the case for Artoria in the original Fate/Stay Night? She was summoned while on the brink of death, not after death. There's precedent for it, is all I'm saying, and if anyone's enough of an overpowered hax mage to mess with the Throne of Heroes, it's Merlin.

[up][up]The Nasuverse breaks more of its own rules than an English grammar guide. At this point it'd be more surprising to see a rule that didn't have any exceptions.

Saber wasn't a heroic spirit in FSN. She was a living person whose soul was dumped into a class container. Playable Merlin is basically just him summoning himself to Chaldea for funsies. Most of the heroes in SIN are still alive as well. A better question would probably be why they're put into the class system at all.

Man, I legit feel bad for Gorgon in the second battle. Mash/Mr. Andersen/Tamamo team just shits all over her attempts to kill the team.

Dec 6th 2018 at 10:34:15 PM

Gorgon is a laughably easy boss. Oh no, don't hit me with a weak full party multi hit attack when I have a support Servant so strong that they actually had to nerf him before release and he's still one of the top three Servants in the game.

Took me all day before, during and after work until one in the morning to complete the Singularity. That includes reading the dialogue. I’ve a greater appreciation for the writing since being able to read it.

So... with how Thanksgiving shaking things up in summons, anyone wanna guess that the New Year gacha will be different, and how will it be different? Or don't tell me that Merlin might even pop up there? Or King Hassan being dumped there too?

According to toi8, he began working on Consort Yu's artwork on October 2016

This lines up with the Rasputin comment in Iri's material profile and seems to confirm they had at least mostly shifted from EOR to Lostbelt stuff by late 2016

@Dark Hunter: The issue is not that he's not dead (The Throne sits outside of time, remember), is that he'll never die, he's locked up in Avalon for eternity and is fated to never sit in the Throne, but because Babylonia was a time before he was ever born, it opens up a loophole for Cas Gil to exploit.

As for Artoria, I don't quite remember the magicbabble they gave on FSN (last time I read it was three years ago, cut me some slack) but the end result is that her souls is not currently in the Throne, but it was borrowed from just before she died, as that was when she made a contract with Alaya not unlike a Counter Guardian. It's only after FSN (the Fate route, to be more specific) that she actually dies for realsies.
