Warning: This entire page will contain (gameplay) spoilers for the next event. For those Masters who wish to go in entirely fresh, it’s probably best to visit a different page.
The next Halloween event has already been announced! Halloween 2018 isn’t a particularly difficult event, but to gain access to all the copies of the Elisabeth Bathory (Brave) a whole plethora of “Challenge Quests” will need to be completed.
Rather than containing difficult bosses like Nero Fest, these quests instead trade high HP and damage numbers for placing limits on what Servants can be used per Quest. While these Quests can be soloed with the right support - it is probably more satisfying to beat them without entirely relying on others. Please consult the Challenge Quest requirements in the massive table below.
The event itself has linear progression with the Main Quest and higher difficulty Free Quests gradually unlocking over the course of the first 5 days. The Challenge Quests will be available after the Main Quest is finished.
Farming is a bit more complicated. It resembles the Kara no Kyoukai Event in that event Craft Essences increase the spawn rate of enemies while the gacha Craft Essences provide bonus currency drops. Masters can also employ special buffing items to boost their team’s performance - much like the Beans found in the Onigashima event.
Finally, the event has six Servants with bonus damage. Consider making use of the double success rate that is currently active to (finish) levelling them. If they are available, of course. For Masters with a preference for adventurous, cacophonic idol lizards - try and prepare a nice chunk of experience for Elisabeth Bathory (Brave) before the event starts.
Bonus Damage Servants
Challenge Quest Restrictions Table
Each Category/Restriction has 4 associated Challenge Quests.
Only Servants that adhere to the requirements can be fielded in the appropriate Challenge Quest. Sadly, the game does not recognize Spartacus as female.
Friend Supports must also adhere to the requirements.
The Challenge Quests must be completed in the listed order before Masters can move to the next set of 4 Challenge Quests. Starting with Females, then males, etc.
Try to prepare at least 1 Servant for each category!
Don't worry overly much however - between powerful friend supports and item buffs, success should not be a problem.
