Christmas 2018 Walkthrough

Introduction

  • This Christmas event is very similar to last month's rerun. New quests are released every day, and the best nodes unfortunately don't open until later on. 
  • The lottery in this event is unlimited. Feel free to spend as many apples and AP on farming Miracle Stockings as possible. There won't be a farming event this lucrative for a long time. 
  • In case it's not clear: now is the time to spend those saved up apples!
  • Jeanne d'Arc Alter Santa Lily is acquired (temporarily) straight away and can be permanently unlocked by finishing the main story and grabbing her Summon Ticket and copies from the Lottery/Event Shop. 
  • The main quest is straightforward and tuned for beginners.
  • Always try to bring as many relevant Event Bonus Servants (and CE) as (safely) possible. 
  • For a good approach towards farming, see the farming walkthrough below.

Introduction Farming Walkthrough

  • The time-restricted nature of this event may make farming difficult. It may be ideal to farm less efficient nodes early on if time is limited when the best nodes open. 
  • Buy up any Holy Night Suppers from the shop ASAP.
  • Fill up empty CE slots with Holy Night Suppers.
  • Field the appropriate Bonus Servants when possible.
  • The plan of attack is simple: 
  1. Use Natural AP regeneration until the Powder Snow difficulty opens. Try to get a copy of Holy Night Supper with Fruitcakes before Powder Snow opens up. Do not use apples yet!  
  2. Farm Powder Snow difficulty with plenty of Cheesecake bonus before Snowflakes difficulty open up. Clear the shop of desired items costing Cheesecakes. Use apples if necessary.
  3. Farm Snowflakes difficulty with a mixture of Fruitcake and Shortcake bonus to finish both of them at the same time. Clear the shop of desired items costing cakes. The shop should be empty by now, except for Bûche de Noël or unwanted items. Use apples if necessary.
  4. Go nuts farming the Blizzard difficulty for optimal Miracle Stockings drops. Empty up all the apples, leave no lottery button untouched, grind, grind, grind. 
  • If time is a problem and/or your stock of apples is very large, consider farming Miracle Stockings early in the Snowflakes node. Use less Fruit- and Shortcake Event CE and more Holy Night Suppers.

Quick Farming Overview

  • Due to the nature of the event, farming cakes will always coincide with farming Miracle Stockings. 
  • Thus, farming later stages (except for Expert) will always yield a nice increase in Miracle Stockings per node.
  • The listed nodes don't sacrifice Miracles Stockings for more cakes.
  • Try and finish farming the cakes before the final, optimal, Miracles Stockings node opens.

Holy Night Supper

CE Effects
Holy Night Supper 5★
NP Damage/Critical Damage by 10% (MLB 15%).
Starting NP gauge by 30% (MLB 50%).

Increase drops by 1 (MLB 2).
[Christmas 2018 Only]
  • There's no way around this. This is a terrific CE and, once properly leveled, even an upgrade over Halloween Princes
  • This is mainly due to having its raw stat budget fully allocated to attack. 
  • However, there are only 4 copies in the Event Shop. 
  • The final copy has to be farmed from the Event Quests. 
  • It is highly recommended that you try to do so. Hybrid CE are great for a mix of farming and performance. 
  • The best drop rate(2%...) is of course from the highest level quest. The Miracle Stockings farming location: Blizzard.
  • Since this coincides nicely with farming the lottery, hopefully the CE will drop for most dedicated farmers. 
  • Best of luck.
