Valentine's 2020 - Walkthrough / Farming Guide

Submit Feedback or Error

Introduction

  • Welcome to the Hanging Gardens! This Event is entirely a farming event, so the Walkthrough and Farming Guide are rolled into one.
  • Two versions of the walkthrough are available: One assuming prior Valentine's CEs are available (with at least 5), and another for newcomers without Valentine's CEs. Select the associated tab for the corresponding walkthrough.
  • Holy Grail x1 will be awarded upon clearing the Main Quest line.
  • A full list of Chocolate production rewards can be found here.

General Tips

  • Although Free Quests rotate on a Phase 1 / 2 / 3 schedule, the Event Drop rates in each phase are essentially the same.
  • The only difference among Phases is Ascension Material drops, so Masters may wish to focus their farming on a specific phase with a desirable material. A list of Ascension Materials in each quest are listed in Free Quests At A Glance.
  • Always finish buying out 10 of the current Chocolate Manufacturing Facility before purchasing the next one! It is more cost effective this way.
    Ex: Buy Cacao TreeCacao TreeCacao TreeCacao TreeCacao TreeCacao TreeCacao TreeCacao TreeCacao TreeCacao Tree (10) before buying Paracel-kun
  • Be wary of MLBing Sweet Days Sweet Days too early. The walkthrough assumes a total of Flavor Boost +8 drops from Shop CEs after buying all 4.
    * This can either be 4x Sweet Days
    or
    * 1x MLB Sweet Days + 2x Sweet Days + 1x Valentine's CE
    --Meaning at least 3 extra Sweet Days drops are necessary to MLB comfortably without losing the recommended Flavor Boost drop bonus.
  • Surprise Chocolate Surprise Chocolate: Obtained by gathering Chocolate, allows Masters to receive a Valentine's CE from a random Servant. Valentine's CEs also boost Flavor Boost drops by +1.
  • Lock-On Chocolate Lock-On Chocolate: Obtained by gathering Chocolate as well, although fewer in number. This item allows Masters to receive a Valentine's CE from their Servant of choice!
