Saint Quartz & Summoning Odds

gacha hell

Summoning is the primary method of acquiring new Servants and Craft Essences in Fate/Grand Order. Summoning rare cards costs 3 Saint Quartz (paid currency), and summoning common cards costs 200 Friend Points (via gameplay):

Summoning Types 1x Cost 10x Cost Rewards
Limited Time Summon 3SQ* 30SQ 3* to 5* Servant or CE
Story Summon 3SQ* 30SQ 3* to 5* Servant or CE
Friend Points Summon 200FP 2000FP 1* to 3* cards

*Or a Summoning Ticket

For Saint Quartz Summoning, using the 10x option guarantees at least one 4* card (either Servant or Craft Essence) and at least one Servant.

When the Limited Time Summon option is active, your chances of getting the featured Servants or Craft Essences are increased. If you roll a 5* Servant from a Limited Time Summon, 70% of the time it'll be from the featured list (source).

Summoning Odds

Published odds of a single Saint Quartz Summon:

Rarity Servant Craft Essence
5* 1% 4%
4* 3% 12%
3* 40% 40%


Based on the above table, your likelihood of acquiring at least one 5* or 4* Servant with cash shop purchases are approximately:

Cash Shop Saint Quartz 5* Servant Odds 4* Servant Odds
3x $0.99 3 1% 3%
3x $3.99 15 5% 14%
3x $11.99 48 15% 38%
3x $23.99 108 30% 66%
3x $39.99 195 48% 86%
3x $79.99 420 76% 98%

As you see, the odds are rather abysmal.


For Limited Time Summon with a single featured 5* Servant, the odds of getting that specific Servant is approximately:

Cash Shop Saint Quartz Rate Up 5* Servant
3x $0.99 3 <1%
3x $3.99 15 3%
3x $11.99 48 10%
3x $23.99 108 22%
3x $39.99 195 36%
3x $79.99 420 62%

Keep your expectations in check when summoning Servants. You probably won't get the Servant you really wanted, even when you splurge.

Free Quartz

Luckily, there's plenty of free Saint Quartz to be found in the game, if you work for them.

It's a good idea to play through the game and save all the Saint Quartz and Summoning Tickets you get, then splurging for your favorite Servant when he or she is featured on a Limited Time Summon.
