Fate/Grand Order is a turn-based card RPG based on the Fate/stay night visual novel. With beautiful characters to command and wicked enemies to fight, there’s a lot to master here. Let’s get started with our Fate/Grand Order cheats, tips and tricks strategy guide!
Review the Battle Order!
While the main battle mechanic seems relatively straightforward at first, it can be confusing for new players to remember all of the little rules that go into play when deciding your battle order. Here’s a summarized run down to help you remember.
First off, you should activate any skills you want to use. These skills grant your servants temporary buffs that help you win the battle, but they often have long cooldowns. Early on it’s usually best to use these right off the bat as the beginning enemies go down pretty quickly.
Secondly, check your critical stars and see which cards they’ve applied to the most. Picking the cards with the most stars will give you the greatest chance of landing critical hits.
Thirdly, remember that the first card you pick in the battle order will buff the other two cards in some way. Buster cards will increase your overall damage, Arts cards will fill up the (N)oble (P)hantasm gauge more, and Quick cards will increase the amount of critical stars dropped by enemies. All of these effects stack with more of the same type of card.
Finally, see if you can build a chain attack. Picking three cards of the same servant starts a Brave Chain which allows them to attack a fourth time for big damage. Picking three cards of the same color type will result in a chain of that color’s bonus, amplifying its effect. For example three Buster cards results in a Buster Chain greatly increases your attack power.
Exploit enemy weaknesses using Tendency!
Each servant and enemy belongs to a certain “Tendency,” or this game’s version of classes. There are two triangles that give certain Tendencies an advantage over others. The first triangle consists of: Saber -> Lancer -> Archer. This loops back so that Archers beat Sabers.
The second triangle consists of Rider -> Caster -> Assassin. This one loops too so Assassins beat Riders.
There are two other classes that exist outside of the two triangles and have their own special attributes. The Shielder Tendency is a class focused on defensive abilities and they do not gain advantage or have weaknesses to other Tendencies. The Berserker Tendency is focused on unchained offensive power, which means they get advantage over every other Tendency… but in turn, they are also weak to every single one of them as well!
Before jumping into a quest, you can see what the Tendency of the monsters will be. You can see the icon on the right side of the quest bar. Change up your team if you’re having trouble with a certain quest.
Complete the Master Missions for premium currency!
Tapping the little clipboard next to your Gift Box will bring up your list of Master Missions. Master Missions are sort of like your daily quests. Master Missions are received in sets and will expire three days after you’ve gotten them, so be sure to complete as many as you can before time is up.
Completing a Master Mission will reward you with a Saint Quartz Fragment. You can exchange seven of them for an actual Saint Quartz, the premium currency of the game. You receive Master Missions in sets of seven missions, so it’s exactly enough to get a Saint Quartz!
Upgrade your Servants!
You can enhance your servants by fusing them with certain materials. This is especially important in this game because unlike many other hero based RPGs, your servants will not gain experience through fighting battles; they must be enhanced with the proper cards. You’ll need a variety of enhancement cards if you want to level up your servants, level up their skills, and evolve them. To level up their Noble Phantasm, you’ll need a copy of the servant.
Make sure you outfit your servants with Craft Essences in addition to the regular upgrades. Craft Essences are essentially gear, and each servant can have one equipped. Bear in mind that Craft Essences have their own party points, so you can’t equip too many of them if you’re already near your party point cap.
