Didn't really have time to post this earlier, but right after maintenance on FGO finished last night I went right into the game to try rolling some quartz for my white whale - the one that got away last year. I had spent over 1800 quartz last summer in an attempt to get Tamamo Shark, only to get not one, not two, but three off-banner 5* servants instead, in addition to a plethora of the event 4*s and more CEs than I could possibly need. Gave up in disgust and sadness, and a crying wallet.
No tears this time. After several rolls I was getting tired of letting the animation play for every card so I started skipping them, and in the midst of it appeared a silver Lancer card. I thought the game was lagging a bit and missed my skip input, so I tapped it again and bam - there she was. I accidentally skipped the animation of the silver card sparking to turn gold. So with an unfortunately missed bit of fanfare, I managed to get bikini Tamamo on my sixth ten-roll. 180 quartz, not bad. And no unwelcome 5* spooks, just a stray Marie along the way. Naturally, I was thrilled and struggled to keep my voice down since it was the middle of the night. But yay, I got her! My #1 most-wanted servant! In total between last year and this year it took the astronomical amount of roughly 2000 quartz, but now the hole in my FGO account is filled at last. A big thanks to Red for providing me with the perfect summoning catalyst to use!
It's tempting to try for NP2 with what I have remaining (about 250 SQ), but I'll save what's left to try for Summer Nero when she comes out a bit later on.
Here are my rolls. I forgot to screenshot the first one, but it was just a bare minimum roll with one 4* CE anyway.
Now I have even more event CEs I didn't need. I might actually burn a bunch of them after the event is over. I just don't have the room.
