Merry Xmas and Happy Birthday Arcueid

December 25th is known around the world as Christmas, a (once religious but now mainly commercial) holiday of joy and happiness. But you know what else gets celebrated on this day? Arcueid Brunestud’s (self-proclaimed) birthday! So why not celebrate both with a new photoshoot of Arcueid in a seductive Xmas outfit from Ageha Design? :3 Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/keripo/albums/72157660446872654 Figure.fm: http://www.figure.fm/en/post/56447/Merry+Xmas+and+Happy+Birthday+Arcueid.html DollfieDreams: http://www.dollfiedreams.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=13653 ~Keripo

[F/GO] Team Damage Comparisons: Buster vs Arts vs Quick

Reddit post: Team Damage Comparisons: Buster vs Arts vs Quick (Warning: Contains Math!) from grandorder Copy-paste archive: Spoiler: # The Intro With the ever-growing new generation of multi-hit 5-star servants and massive buffing to crit star generation, many people have been wondering about exactly how “good” are they really. And as the internet tends to do, there will be many heated back-forth discussions/arguments about what team is better and who does the most damage.

[F/GO] Halloween Event Drop Rates

Reddit post: Halloween Event Drop Rates (aka the "Which quest should I farm?" reference charts) from grandorder Copy-paste archive: Spoiler: **Update**: Apparently there has been even more quest updates since I collected my data and Guerilla quests are no longer repeatable as well as had their drop rates changed. They are still the best for Pumpkin farming though. I decided to go over my past [Twitch stream broadcasts](http://www.twitch.tv/keripo) and compile together drop results to build a rough drop rate table to share with the community. I’m actually done farming right now so I probably won’t continue gathering more data, but …

[F/GO] Introductory Guide to Fate/Grand Order Party Setups

Fate/Grand order is a pretty straightforward mobile RPG; you buy cards, you kill enemies, and then you use dropped quest rewards to level up your cards. The game more or less revolves around the Servants that make up your party and their equipped CE (Craft Essences). For the battle component of the game, you can choose up to 5 Servants to fill your party, each with up to one CE. When it comes to choosing which cards, you generally end up with two kinds of players: 1) those who build their party for best battle potential, and 2) those who …
