Guild of Guardians
For the esteemed masters at Chaldea, the time has come to gear up all of your servants and prepare for the ultimate challenge yet. Whether you are a veteran and have grailed a lot of your favorite servants. Even just a beginner who wish to challenge themselves in this latest event. FGO NA is about to start one of the most challenging event there is, "The Tales of Setsubun: Oni Pagoda Festival!"

The event starts at January 27 PST but for us Filipino Masters, it will be at January 28, so you have more or less a week to enhance your servants to their ultimate potential as you strive to climb the pagoda with all your might. However, it is not as easy as you think it is. You will need all the servants you need because of some factors that you need to consider in order to finish said event. Here are some that you will need to know before the event starts.

First of all, Support Servants are not available! Yes, you heard that right! You cannot rely on the power of your friends' supports to aid your climb. Therefore, if you did rely on their supports, it is time for you to step up your game as well. You will need to form your party with 3-6 servants of your own. The minimum is a three servant party and of course, the maximum is a six servant party.

Another thing to mention is the newest feature of the Setsubun event which is the "Fatigued" or "Exhaustion" mechanic. Once you completed a specific floor in the pagoda, your servant will be fatigued for the next 4 hours, which means that said servant can't participate in the next floors as long as they are exhausted. However, this only works once you have achieved victory in that said floor, meaning if you failed to clear the floor then you can try again with the same servant party.

However, it is not all gloom and doom in this event. There will also be mechanics that will help you proceed to the event faster! There will be a "Hot Springs" which is unlockable in the Main Quest. Once unlocked, you can place your servants there who have been Exhausted from battling in a floor to reduce their fatigue from 4 hours to 2 hours making the grind less punishing.

Finally, a new craft essence which will tremendously help you in this event, a 5 Star CE called "Dress for Demons" which has the following effects. Increase Crit Damage by 10%, Crit Star Rate by 10%, and you start with your NP Gauge at 30% with the servant you equipped this CE with. Effects are boosted to 15%, 15% and 50% respectively once you max limit break the CE. This will be available to obtain in floors 30, 60, 100, 120, 140 so grind up to make your grind much easier!

Enhance and rank up your servants now. The training grounds and ember gathering is available to everyone who plans to rush the event so better get ready! Let's climb the pagoda together, fellow Masters!
