Forest - Rakshasa
A good node to farm for Warhorse's Young Horn and Meteor Horseshoes on top of golden and silver event materials. This node will favor a strong Saber who can handle both the Bicorn and Cu Alter in the last wave as the main damage dealer, and a supportive cast who can blow past the first two waves fast.
|Rama deserves an extra mention as he is perfect for this node. He can one-shot the Bicorn who is particularly weak to Brahmastra and kill Cu Alter with his Critical Damage Attacks.|
|Okita shines in this node thanks to her high damage single target Noble Phantasm, fantastic NP generation and 60% bonus damage from event.|
Ryougi Shiki (Saber)
|Sabers with strong AoE Noble Phantasm to damage both enemies. Do note that these units are not particularly fast when it come to charging their Noble Phantasm, even with Golden Sumo. A support Zhuge Liang can help with this immensely.|
Tower - Rakshasha
The best node to farm for silver event materials - Roll of Brocade, as well as having a respectable drop rate for Heart of Foreign God and Phoenix Feather. The Amazonesses in this node can be annoying despite their low HP due to them being different classes than the two main threats - Helena Blavatsky and a Demon.
|A good budget Rider who possesses bonus damage during this event and can take care of the two Caster bosses.|
Altria Pendragon (Santa Alter)
|Riders with a powerful AoE Noble Phantasm. Francis Drake is easily the best as she is not reliant on an NP battery like Zhuge Liang, but Santa Alter’s Noble Phantasm can one-shot the third wave more reliably.|
Mountain Trail - Rakshasa
This node is particularly annoying to farm, despite it being the best for the bronze material - Dragon Palace Coral. It is because the enemies are mainly Assassins with a three-charge NP bar who cover very well for the boss of the node - Charles Babbage (Caster). An AoE Caster and a high damage single target Rider can handle this wave with proper support. Using Berserkers with strong damage boosts like Ibaraki Douji or Minamoto-no-Raikou are also an option.
Elisabeth Bathory (Halloween)
|Being the best AoE Caster in the game as of the moment, Elizabeth can deal good chunk of damage to the last waves, killing the two Assassins and allowing her teammates to clean up Babbage.|
|An NP level 5 Ushi can deal significant damage to Babbage thanks to all the bonus damage she has. However she has to be extra careful against the Assassin mobs which are ever present in this node.|
|With Golden Sumo and some support in generating Noble Phantasm gauge, these Berserkers can do a lot of work in all three waves, but they are at the same time particularly fragile against the Killing Dolls as they do Critical Damage frequently.|
Hot Springs - Rakshasa
This is where the majority of farming might occur, as this node is the one for golden material - Oni’s Wicker Basket. The danger of this node lies in the low amount of charge on both Shuten-Douji and Gazer’ NP bars. This node will favor strong Lancers who can handle the Gazer, and potentially a powerful single target damage Caster to kill Shuten-Douji.
|These two Lancers are tailor-made to farm this node. They both possess strong Noble Phantasms, Anti-Divinity trait to kill Shuten-Douji and high basic card damage.|
Altria Pendragon (Lancer Alter)
|Good Lancer alternatives. They do not deal bonus damage against Shuten-Douji but they are more than capable of handling the Gazer.|
Jack the Ripper
|These Servants won’t help much against the Gazer, but can quickly take out Shuten-Douji.|
Cavern - Rakshasa
One of the two nodes that drop all three event materials, this node also offers a good farming spot for Octuplet Twin Crystals and Seeds of Yggdrasil. Currently there is no way to deal class advantage damage against Dantes aside from bringing Berserkers, making it a bit tricky. The Spriggan can also stack a lot of Critical Damage self-buffs and decimate the team if left unchecked.
|With both the bosses in the third wave being Male, and one of them being a Saber, these two Arts Archers are the perfect fits for this node.|
|These Archers possesses powerful AoE Noble Phantasms with bonus damage on top to make this node a lot less painful. They are also adept Critical Damage Dealers at the same time, capable of hitting for absurd numbers when buffed.|
Summit - Rakshasa
The final node of the events and offer an alternative for farming all three materials at once. It is also a decent node to farm Dragon’s Reverse Scale.
Jack the Ripper
|Jack is the best single-target Assassin in the game, making her perfect for taking out the Dragon. Her Anti-Female bonus damage on her Noble Phantasm also make her a fantastic asset against Brynhild. |
Honorable Mention: Carmilla
Ryougi Shiki (Assassin)
|With bonus damage in this event and a powerful Noble Phantasm, there is no surprise Shiki is adept at handling this node. She can easily one shot the Dragon and deal significant damage against Brynhild even without the Anti-Female trait.|
|Okita is easily one of the best Sabers of the event, alongside Rama. She is capable of dispatching Brynhild with one Noble Phantasm, and provide support to the team with Critical Stars and single-target damage to finish off the Dragons.|
|The bonus damage from event does help Shuten-Douji’s damage output by quite a lot. She is not a premium choice for this node, but can put in a lot of good work thanks to class advantage against the Dragon and a plethora of debuffs.|
