Essential tips for Ember farming

The aim for Ember farming from the beginning should be "Expert"

There's a big gap between Advanced and Expert Quests

For the "Ember Gathering" Quest, you should straight away be aiming for the most difficult level: Expert. Although tough, there is a huge difference in the rate you earn EXP points between Advanced and Expert.

Even at Lv.1 this can be cleared, depending on the Support Servant

You can consistently clear Expert Quests, depending on the Support Servant you bring with you. It's possible even if your Support is not a Friend, so as soon as you have fulfilled the conditions and unlocked the Expert levels, give them a try.

It's better to wait until your AP exceeds 40

Since returns are low for the amount of AP used even for difficulty levels other than Expert, it's best not to bother with the "Ember Gathering" Quest until your max AP is over 40. Stick with the Story Quests until your Master level reaches 17.

Sell all these 3★Embers - except at very early stage

The "3★ Ember" - which you can get up to one of per run at Expert level - is normally . Once you've collected enough of these, you can exchange them for "Summon Tickets" or "Fou Cards".

STEP1.When you've just started playing the game

Rely on Friends to safely farm Embers

【Recommended for these groups】
・Players who have just reached maximum 40 AP
・Players farming Embers for the first time

【Features】
Around 4-5 minutes per run
・Use "Ruler" Servants as your Support
・Possible to farm even when own Servants are all at Lv.1
・Also effective for learning Command Card performance
・Not possible without a specific Servant in Support

With this farming method, use a "Ruler" Servant as your Support. "Rulers" take half damage from almost all other Servants. Have them crush all your enemies by themselves.The Quest can be safely cleared even when all your own Servants are at Lv.1.

Farming procedure

1:Setup your Party with two of your own Servants and one Support Servant

First of all attempt the Quest with a party Setup of only three Servants - two of your own and one Support. For the Support, look for a If you can't find one, tap the "Update List" button.

▲Essentially it's actually better if your own two Servants are at Lv.1. The earlier they are knocked out of battle, the easier it is for the Support Servant to clean up.

▲In the Support Select screen, pick the far right Class, then look for a Servant with a mark like a set of scales.

▲Your Master will be equipped with the default Mystic Code, and should have already started leveling up through the Story Quests.

2:As much as possible use the Support Servant's Command Cards in battle

Simply choose the Command Cards of the Support Servant you’ve brought with you. So you can increase the number of their attacks, it's better if the two other Servants are at Lv.1 and are defeated easily.

▲"Georgios" or "Leonidas I" are ideal. They have a Skill that focuses enemy attacks on themselves, and can make an early exit from the battlefield.

▲As a general rule try to select Buster (Red) Cards first, then you can deal more damage

3:Prioritize knocking out Berserkers, then Archers and Assassins

"Berserkers" are effective against "Rulers" so try to knock out these enemies first. Then go for "Archers" and "Assassins" who can more rapidly deploy Noble Phantasms. Tap on the enemy you want to wipe out first.

4:Time the use of your Master Skills well

To avoid any slip-ups, use your Master Skills at set times. When HP starts to get low for your Support Servant use "First Aid", and when trying to knock out the toughest enemy in the third wave, use "Instant Enhancement" to raise your ATK.

STEP2.When your Servants are already Enhanced

Rely on Friends to safely farm Embers (second method)

【Recommended for these groups】
・Players whose Servants are now trained up
・Players who want to speed up farming as much as possible

【Features】
Around 3-4 minutes per run
・Use "Berserker" Servants as your Support
・Your own Servants should be Lv.40-50 or above
・Favor advantageous Classes or Berserkers in your party Setup

With this farming method, use a "Berserker" Class Servant as your Support. This Class deals 1.5 times more damage to all enemies. Then crush the opposition together with your own Servants. There is a chance you can slip-up with this method, but it does mean speedier farming than STEP 1.

Farming procedure

1:Setup your Party favoring advantageous Classes or Berserkers

First of all Setup a Party with Enhanced Servants you hold that are either an advantageous Class or Berserkers. For the Support, choose a powerful Berserker. If you have a Servant that can defend your Support, they can also be useful.

▲In STEP 1 the Sub Member slots were left empty, but this time, if you can, select Servants for these slots too.

2:Aim to defeat 1 enemy per turn, plus a little extra

When attacking, aim for the formula: "1 turn = 1 enemy + x". Select a Buster Card first to raise the damage, and always try to attack with a Servant of an advantageous Class.

3:Protect your Support Berserker as much as possible

Even though the intention is to defeat your enemies quickly, as your Support is a Berserker they will take a great deal of damage. For steady farming, protect your Support with DEF buffs and by drawing away attacks.

4:Make Friend Requests to those players with Kaleidoscope

Berserkers like "Minamoto no Raiko" with Area of Effect Noble Phantasms are great to have. When they are equipped with the Craft Essence "Kaleidoscope", and by one of your Friends, you can unleash this power straight away. If you spot these pairings, don't be shy in making Friend requests.

Farming procedure

1:Equip Craft Essences with a starting charge of 50-60% and the Chaldea Combat Uniform

First of all equip Craft Essences with a starting NP charge of 50% or more to Enhanced Servants that are either of an advantageous Class or Berserkers, and have an Area of Effect Noble Phantasm. For your Mystic Code, use the Chaldea Combat Uniform so you have the Order Change Skill.

▲The Confirm Party screen before going into battle. Our recommended Support Servant is Zhuge Liang, who can grant a 20% NP charge to the whole party, and 30% charge to an individual.

2:Charge up and release your Noble Phantasms

Aim to fire off your Noble Phantasms as soon as the battle starts, using the Support's NP charge Skill. When there are Servants without a full gauge, use one Noble Phantasm as the third Command Card and earn some more NP by using Arts Cards first and second for those Servants that need it.

3:Once you've used a Noble Phantasm, switch with Order Change

After using a Noble Phantasm and a Servant's NP gauge is at zero, use the Order Change Skill to switch to a Servant with a charge built up. Fully charge this new Servant with a regular Arts Card attack, an Arts Chain, or by using a Skill.

▲Order Change is a Master Skill that comes with the Chaldea Combat Uniform. With this Skill it’s possible to switch a Party Starting Member with a Sub Member during battle.

Additional note: In the case of Arash, Order Change is unnecessary

Arash’s Noble Phantasm has the effect “Apply Death to yourself”. After dealing damage to all enemies, Arash is killed instantly, so a Sub Member automatically takes up his spot. In this case there’s no need to use Order Change.

▲Although this is described as a Demerit in the game, it’s actually a big advantage when farming Quests.

STEP4.When you have several Craft Essences with a starting 75-80% NP charge

Rapid farming within 3 turns

【Recommended for these groups】
・Players holding 2 or more Craft Essences with a starting charge of 75-80%
・Players whose own Servants are trained up

【Features】
Around 2 minute
・Makes use of your own Servant's Noble Phantasms
・Support Servant used for charging the NP gauge

With this farming method equip your own Enhanced Servants with a Craft Essence that gives a starting NP charge of 75-80%, then each turn release a Noble Phantasm to wipe out the opposition in 3 turns. Rapid farming becomes possible, increasing at once the amount of Embers you can collect per hour.

First of all equip Craft Essences with a starting NP charge of 50% or more to Enhanced Servants that are either of an advantageous Class or Berserkers, and have an Area of Effect Noble Phantasm. If you are using Arash, the Chaldea Combat Uniform won’t be necessary.

2:Charge up and release your Noble Phantasms

Aim to fire off your Noble Phantasms as soon as the battle starts, using the Support's NP charge Skill or your Servants’ own Skills. Then after the Noble Phantasm has finished, immediately switch using Order Change.

▲Spartacus or Arash can charge their own NP gauge a maximum of 30%. Equipped with a Craft Essence with a starting charge of 75-80%, they are able to launch a Noble Phantasm straight away without any help.
