Introduction

It seems the game freezes after every Free Quest if it is not set to JST. Altering your Phone's time to JST should fix the issue.

  • The New Year Event is actually timegated in what is perhaps the worst possible way for all the casual to slacker Masters among us: the timegates are based on your own progress
  • As such, this is one of the few (only perhaps) Events where Masters can lock themselves out completely if they start too late.
  • Therefore: Start early!
  • In addition, the earlier the Hotel is fully renovated, the more QP Masters can receive from the Event!

Benienma's Crib Needs New Renovation

  • As per usual for FGO Events, the Event looks a lot more complicated than it actually is.
  • With 6 types of currencies, both 3 versions Timber-type and Harvest-type, Masters may be lost as to what to grind first.
  • The key is to farm Timber early on, using the correct Servant classes with a Timber bonus and the Event CEs, in order to buy more renovations and unlock better Free Quests.
  • Only Timber is needed to progress the Main Quest, The Harvest currencies are only needed to clear out the various Ascension Items in the Event Shop.
  • Ideally, purchase the renovations that unlock new Free Quests first!

Your Daily Points Haul

  • For each Renovation completed, Benienma's entrepreneurial venture receives a daily income of Points and/or they unlock an additional Main, Free or Extra Quest.
  • These Points are awarded Each day at 10:00 am JST.
  • However, through the wonder of technology, some Masters only receive those points at 10:00 am for their local time.
  • It varies per Master whether this happens, and Master may be able to manipulate their system settings to force it to adhere to the Japanese timetable.
  • Masters need to hit 3 specific Benchmarks: 3,500 Points, 90,000 Points, and 500,000 Points, to fully progress through Event.
  • Masters can thus complete the Event fully in 3 Points hauls(days) if for each benchmark they fully purchase all Renovations available before the next time they receive points.

In Short:

  1. Focus on farming the Timber currency to progress the Main Quests.
  2. Start the Event early, so as to get the most extra QP at the end, and to avoid being stuck before the Event ends
  3. Purchase Renovations that unlock new Free Quests first.
  4. Farm the Harvest-type currencies last, but use any accrued Harvest Materials to buy the Timber boosting Event CE first.

Walkthrough Day 3

The Event Calculator is live!...It really did not want to play along. 

While I transfer all the tables, I'll briefly write up a cliffnotes version so everything is clear:

  1. Clear all the Main Quests to unlock more renovations
  2. Next goal is to unlock the best level 90 Free Quests
  3. If you have been following the guide, you have farmed the 290 Zelkova Timber to buy the Castle Tower. 
  4. This is where the Event Calculator comes in.
  5. You want to start farming both Harvest currency and the Timber at once. 
  6. Check the Event Shop for how much Harvest Currency you need to farm, as Timber wise we will need (provided you farmed 380 Cedar Timber earlier):
  • 1080 Cedar Timber: 380 (farmed earlier) + 600(4* fous) + 480 for the non-Free Quest Renovations 
  • 1240 Cypress Timber: 600 (4* fous) + 640 for the Renovations
  • 1200 Zelkova Timber: 600 (4* fous) + 600 for the Renovations
  1. Ideally, use the Event Calculator to balance out the CEs so that you are done farmed both at the same time. 
  2. Resuming the guide, Farm Castle Tower for 200 Zelkova TImber to purchase the Rooftop Garden with 200 Cedar Timber farmed earlier and the new Zelkova Timber.
  3. Farm Rooftop Garden for the 100 Cypress Timber to purchase the Detachment renovation (180 Cedar Timber and 100 Cypress Timber)
  4. Now buy all the remaining renovations before starting to clear all the Extra Quests. We have to clear specific Extra Quests to continue the Main Story (and hit 500,000 Satisfaction)
  5. Wait for the next Points income to finish off the Main Story. There will be no further repairs to do, and our daily income will now award us with extra QP every day.
