Warfarin is still eluding me.
You and Guin Guin both are evaded by the vampire.
Got Kal'tsit with the free ten-roll along with two copies of the new guard Akafuyu.
I don't have that much to roll for the new Skadi and I already have one so I'll probably keep with the free single rolls for now. And also because Double Skadi is not a Game-Breaker here.
I see. I do remember old skins getting rerun. Makes sense to use the voucher then.
Well that was a fun excursion into Lovecraft city, it's pretty interesting to see how Hypergryph reflects on the author with the tension between Ægir and Iberia, and Irene's own little arc. I'm definitely interested to see how Anita turns out with the Bishop's influence removed (for now?). And Gladiia might as well have just held up a sign that said "HEY THERE'S GONNA BE MORE STORIES IN IBERIA" at the end.
The Bishop's Seaborn form definitely feels like something of an Anticlimax Boss but I guess it was intentional to reflect how the Abyssal Hunters were just that much better.
Kal'tsit ex machina is a bit lame in how conveniently she wraps up everything. The Gladiia double agent act I think works as a story beat, feel like they could have built more on Gladiia and Kal'tsit.
Nerve Impairment is an interesting gimmick, it felt a lot like HG just hammering home the importance of enemy target priority again. This event did feel a lot like a breather after A Walk in the Dust so that's nice, can't wait to give Gladiia a spin once I promote her.
oh yeah does Andreanna already know about the Abyssal Hunter blood thing or are one of the others gonna have to tell her
And I'd like to see more of hoodless Specter. Or Specter being rude, it's an interesting contrast to the mad nun persona.

I just went through all the little freebies we got, and with the free 10-roll on the new banner, my 6-star was ... Weedy.
Also, Skadi Alter's E2 preview page is animated. That's new.
Anyway, I'll start on the actual event later tonight.
Yes, Skadi Alter's E2 has Live2D, it's animated. I think they later port it backwards to Dusk and Nian, don't know if W or Rosmontis have gotten it yet. Think the idea is all Limiteds will get animated versions?
For sure W doesn't. I checked.
Read it and weep boys. Only thing that could make this roll better if it was off the free ticket or had W (Image had to be cropped)
M1 done, M2 started.◊
Took me 80 rolls to get both Skalter and Ex-wife. A random Magallen also came for the ride. Not too bad. Still have a bunch of rolls left for Ch'alter.
The L2D is implemented little by little to the other early limited. The one who got it in Dossoles is Nian.
I guess I'll probably save for Saileach next? Beyond the free rolls on Ch'en's banner I don't care too much. She'd be nice, but heavy rolling on a banner I'm not into the other rateup... eh...
All things considered Suzuran, Saileach and Fartooth will be the banners I'm saving for next. With token 10 pulls on every other banner (and Ch'alter banner getting an extra 10 in addition to the freepulls)
Kal'tsit hasn't been acquired yet, but I got Akafuyu :V
Did a single pull for the lols, got another Akafuyu.
Ch'en's banner's one I'm the least looking forward to considering it's bare minimally 2 months away.
Finished the story. Thought it was pretty neat; it had the eldritch horror and dread thing done well, without abandoning the "we need to be able to kill it" part of the game.
Lol, Kal'tsit showing up to be the cleanup crew. I mean, if that bit had been foreshadowed a little better, it would've been nice, y'know? They didn't even need to USE her to blow the thing up. The High Inquisitor's explosive stash would've been fine; not using that was a bit weird.
What I'm really curious about is Ægir. Its fate and status seems particularly murky. Hm, but how much of a timebomb Gladiia is... is also pretty interesting? Since that whole scene with Skadi and the Seaborn makes it a lot of a mental battle, too. But I suppose even if your attitude didn't change, turning into a monster would be inconvenient. The translation of Skadi Alter's profile and all the foreshadowing in THERE only muddies it further, since the transformation direction is very directed by will, apparently.
I want to see more of this Specter, too. Far more fun than a nun, even a psycho nun.
Also, screw the exploding guys.
Plus side, the translation of the event was way better than the PV stuff?

Bit late to the party, but I did 164 rolls and had to go through all my orundums, yellow certs from buying the 38 rolls and a lot of OP (as I don't really use it other than for farming events mainly. I only convert them to orundum when I'm desperate for pulls in a limited banner, as well as used them to buy Schwarz second skin and planning to use it to buy Shamare's skin as well). I got full pot Akafuyu, new Nearl and Warfarin, pot 2 Skalter, pot 4 W (I've got her two previous pots after getting her during her debut banner) and pot 1 Kal'tsit in the final roll.
I'll definitely save for Chalter, Saileach and whatever the limited banner for CN 2.5 anniv will be now, especially that I'm a full F2P player.

Yeah, me too. It's really a shame.
Woooo, got Kal'tsit in less than 15 rolls total :D
11 free pulls, 3 yellow tickets, and 600 oruns.

Yesterday ~40 rolls only gave me Hellagur and three Akafuyu. Today I got Kal'tsit from a freebie roll.
Fuck me, 250 rolls until Skadance finally shows up (technically it's roll 245). Also 2 Kal, 1 dupe Magallan (who is the first 6* I got from the banner... And I just got her from Recruitment just a few weeks ago) and 1 dupe Ifrit...fuck, if off banner 6* are gonna spook me at least be new units dammit!
Gonna take forever to save back up since I'm F 2 P. Guess Chalter is out of my reach then. Honestly I want La Pluma and Tequila from that banner then Roberta from Sileach banner (she's so adorable).
And man the boss is easy...6 units for trust grinding! (Though 2 of those 6 are Kal and Skadance being at E2)
Speaking of the story...I wonder if Specter becoming at least kind of sane again is temporary or permanent
Edited by onyhow on Oct 22nd 2021 at 7:49:45 AM
Didn't they say it was only temporary, like either Kal'tsit or Specter said they weren't sure how long she'd be back in her old personality, which is implied to be connected to her lucidness
^ I must have missed that part a bit I suppose.
Also nice, improved roster in SV-9 means I'm now trust-grinding 8 units at once!
