The Kara no Kyoukai collaboration event ended last night, and I finished farming for item drops to clear out the event shop with just minutes to spare. first event where I've managed to buy everything the shop had to offer.
after that, the Chaldea Boys Collection 2018 "event" started, less an event and more just a special summoning period, adding two new permanently summonable characters and one new limited time 5* character, as well as a bunch of limited time Craft Essences (stat boosting items, for those who have no idea what I'm talking about)
390 quartz later, no Shirou. I can't afford to waste any more money or quartz right now, so I'll have to stop here. all I have to show for it is:
1) at least one copy of each of the limited CEs (except the one with the Bollywood Boys)
2) an NP5 Kid Gil
3) an NP5 Astolfo
4) my Waver finally being NP2 (seriously, he was the only 5* I got, and it's not even his rate up day yet)
and 5) finally having summoned Fionn, Beowulf, and Lancelot for the first time.
I realize I REALLY shouldn't complain with pulls like this, but it's the principal of the thing. aside from the CEs, most of which I don't even know if I'll ever use, I could've gotten literally all of those servants at any time.
oh, well. maybe I'll get lucky with the free summon ticket I'll get on sunday for hitting day 7 of my weekly login streak. ....probably not, though. and bummer, the summoning campaign ends at the end of this month, but my bonus quartz for 250 logins won't be until two days after that.
