I'm in dire need of help to beat the Master Challenge. I am currently running (all fully leveled and 40mc, except 45 on Hilde):

Sazanka as main, with 4.3.4 axe, MUB and leveled Juggernaut, MUB and leveled event print
Nefaria with 5.2.4 bow, level 65 Juggernaut, MUB One with the Shadows 4*WP
Hildegarde with 5.3.0 Void Light Staff, MUB leveled Unicorn, MUB leveled As the snow falls 4*WP
Cleo with 5.2.4 Staff, lv 40 Silke, MUB leveled As the snow falls 4*WP

Also, my shadow alters are 22/22, Library is 23, and my weapon facilities are all between 10-15 except for staff and bow, which are 16.

As you can see, I'm doing my utmost to keep the healers alive (last recovery prints) so they can keep Sazanka and Nefaria alive, but they struggle once the boss goes into overdrive, and eventually die to the mobs. I have the worst luck with sleep force strikes as well, and only once managed to survive (alone) to break him, but didn't have enough DPS to finish the job.

In the wings, I have Botan (70/40mc) and possibly Verica (80/45mc) waiting to swap in, but I've tried a few combinations, which didn't go over as well as the current one.

Any analysis or suggestions, even in broad strokes, would be greatly appreciated!

Edit: I've subbed Verica in for Cleo, and things are going a little bit better. Still need more DPS to finish before time up though. I'm giving lots of thought to making Sazanka my second promoted 5*...

So are staff that get dropped during the challenge owrth using?
usually thats the basis for the clasical 4* and 5* weapons. considering that you probably dont have the smithy leveled yet, they may be better that the ones you are using for some characters. consider that the staff from the last event (3* light staff) is only worth using with light units, as the rest wont be able to use the skill and wont be recieving the "same element bonus" from using them.

long term these weapons would be really useful, just check if once leveled up are better than the ones you are using right now for inmediate change or just storing till you can use them properly. (they will be great also to reach certain might thresholds while in early game)

Ah ok. That's good to know.

Also I've really been considering bringing odetta to 5*, she definitely seem worth it for her tier 5 co-ability and also I like her as a character.

I managed Master last night and I don't think there's any way I could have pulled it off with two healers, I barely had the DPS as it was. Team was Ieyasu, Sazanka, Botan, and V.Hilde. Having a friend Sazanka helped a lot too because her skill sucks in enemies, making a couple of the waves basically vanish instantly.

Oh, and when the boss goes overdrive, I switch to my Sazanka and spam her sleep ability if possible. The time I succeeded in finishing the quest, I didn't actually manage to sleep the boss at all, but if you can pull it off it will be a huge help since there's no good way to otherwise keep your AI from getting pummeled by the purple AoEs

I think the best Helper for this is either Verica or Valentine's Hildegard.
That way you can focus more on DPS. Though Heinwald makes this much easier, of course.

I'm kinda tempted to replace Nefaria with V. Hildegarde and run a team of:
Ieyasu
Sazanka
Heinwald
V. Hildegarde

That way I technically have 2 full DPS, a mixed healer/DPS and a full healer

I was able to do it with Heinwald, Sazanka, Orion, and Nefaria.
Heinwald 37/MUB, Nefaria 80/45, Sazanka and Orion at 70/40.
All tier 5.2 weapons (MUB).
Verica Helper.

You don't need 2 Healers.

Ieyasu-Sazanka-Kleimann(5*)-Verica with a Verica helper allowed me to beat it with a good amount of time to spare with a level 24 facility. The Verica or V!Hilde helper is definitely crucial.

If you have multiple Hitting the Books does anyone know how they handle the bonus? It doesn't seem to be a case where you have your base * 1.25 * 1.25 * 1.25 (with 3) and it doesn't seem like the bonus is multiplied by itself for the additional books.

Whew, cleared the Forbidden Knowledge rewards. I'm very burnt out on running the challenge now lol so I won't be clearing the treasure trade out, but I got all the limited items and a good amount of other materials. Just gonna do the daily stuff for the event now while I finish up the Library and get a few more Extra boss battles in. Managed to resist doing any pulls besides my daily deals, too, so I have a nice little stockpile started for the next banner if it interests me: 20 vouchers and just enough for 3 tenfolds, to start. Hopefully peoples expectations of the upcoming login bonus are accurate and we get some more pulls :)

I really liked this last event, so give me more of this

Felicia and Phantom event was kind of meh but the ending was sweet

I like the events as long as they are not stupid holidays. Euden went a few solid months just being going to concerts, having like three new years, xmas, valentine. Look, the guy should be sieged on all sides by his insane family

give me more main plot

Void was a solid addition but not really as long lasting for me as I hoped because there’s not really a lot for me to work towards weapon-wise. Hoping the new ones next week provide a little more of that.

And whatever they’re building up for next month will hopefully be significant as well.

Anyway... finally tried Master for a bit tonight. Some solid runs, some terrible ones, then one where I had 2 seconds left and was already Juggernaut and he had not only a tiny bit of health but also a sliver of OD until break, and I decided not to quit, and... nope, he broke but didn’t die, half a second more would have been enough. Then after that I took a little break and came back, and immediately got a full clear with 16 seconds left, so uhhhh I’m done with that. Was running Nefaria/Sazanka/Orion/Verica; Nefaria till boss, try to blind him and do some damage, and then Sazanka for the rest to handle breaking and all that.

I finished the Forbidden Knowledge rewards list without having a single Hitting the Books Wyrmprint drop in the Chaos's Calling Expert quest. I gave up on it dropping then had two drop back to back. RNG works in mysterious ways.

Did you notice it dropping during the quest? I’ve seen people speculate that it’s only dropping from the chests at the end this time. (Which is unfortunate; I would have considered farming one or two from master’s first wave again.)

I only ever had one or two drop from expert last time anyway, so I’m not surprised regardless.

I think they came from the chests at the end. I haven't noticed weapons or Wyrmprints dropping from enemies within Chaos's Calling.

Dreading the upcoming gala after seeing some of these videos lol.

Also is it worth to buy the token event WP to have 2 MUB WP?
Well, you can only get 8 total between the knowledge rewards and shop, so you need to get drops of it to MUB another. It’s a solid print, though.

But for now you sorta only want to unbind one unless you got any of the gacha event prints. The event bonuses only double at MUB so it’s better to fill every slot. Ideally you run 4 0UB (4x25%) until you can MUB one, and then run MUB + 2 0UB (1x50%+2x25%) with the same 100% buff and the ability to use a print of your choosing on someone. But time around there’s 8 instead of 7, so you can MUB one and run 3 more 0UB for 125%, so that’s nice of them to have done for the shorter event time.

I ended up with both a 3* (50% knowledge) and 4* (50% tomes) gacha print, though, so I’m hoping I can get some print drops to run 2x MUB + 1 0UB + gacha print either way...

finally got the goddamn epithet

Had to raise Nefaria from lvl 1 to 80, and get her to 40 mana circles. Once again I am bound by mana

Now back to Expert, cause not using 4 Hitting the Books cards (2 of them MUB) at the same time does not make economic sense

Alright cool.

I can't run the final challenge anyway and I don't think I can get my dark team up to snuff in time (getting nefaria helped though) so I dunno if I should bother.

if you can do Expert, you are only missing the Epithet and 500 wyrmite, which is not THAT much

it's better to grind Expert and try to get all the resources and prizes; there are like 20 summon tickets, the last 5x bunch at 850K Forbidden Knowledge

Yeah I dunno if I can get to 850k. I'm up to 320k and can earn around 12k a go.

At least get the 380k one...I think there's 5 at that point
Yeah definitely will get that.

Also looking at these summoning videos I wonder if cygames should just remove the preemptive showing of the rainbow suons before revealing they're WPs.

In FGO you get no indication of what you'll get so it deadens you inside instead of having expectations. Saw one where he got 2 multi rolls that had double rainbow only to reveal that it was double WPs lol.

I was worried I was at a huge disadvantage without any of the focus characters or else Ieyasu, but turns out, I just needed to find the right combination! Finally managed to clear Challenge Battle: Master last night. Party was Sazanka, Botan, Nefaria, and Verica, and I used a V!Hilde helper. Timing my specials and knowing when to pop a heal really helped me keep everyone alive and enough time on the clock to wear him down. I've done it a few times more now for kicks, and the best I've done is with about 20 seconds left on the clock. now that I've gotten all the wyrmite and epithet, happy to go back to farming Expert.

Probably, yeah. It'll likely be during the half anniversary celebration too, so we might get even more free pulls out of it.

So we should get some 10 summon tickets during gala right?
If there's a version update next week (and there probably is, what with all the new content and features), there is a very good chance they will give a 10 fold summon ticket for that alone. I don't pretend to have any idea what they have in mind for the Gala, but if the New Year's was any indication, they will be generous for the 6 month anniversary.
