Maybe you could add Manticore to slow those weeb katana down more with Ange, I still want to E2 her for risk 24+ but 8 T4 Manganese kinda turns me off, hope Gavial event is next because 8 T3 manganese in shop can ease the farming a bit :fgo_casgilworry:

I figure I wanna see how well I can do without looking up any outside strats until at least day 5. If I can manage R18 week 1 without looking any guides, I’ll wait until a few days into week 2 just to see how high risk I can get on my own.
I have a pile of slowers E2’d already, between Angie, Suzu, Podenco, Manticore, all of which have at least M2 on their skills, so that’ll probably be a main way to go. Though I’m a little curious if I can manage straight tanking everything with Hoshi buffed by Shining and/or Aak S2 if I give the avengers the attack speed boost. I’ll probably play around a bit and see.

also, buying all the skins.

For some reason, I actually had two plans for risk 23-24 on week 1 - the magic debuff strat and the sniper debuff strat. I was weirdly prepped for both so I’ll see which ones would take me higher.

Magic debuff strat (10 man team):
Siege S2M1 - Block enemies in front of blue exit
Ifrit S3M2, Eyja S3M3, Mostima S2M2 - arts dmg meltdown in front of siege
Saria S3M2 - arts dmg amp and tank faust
Shining and Ptlio SL7 - healing team from ballista
Cuora SL7 - block katanas to sync all enemies to reach siege for arts dmg meltdown
Myrtle S1M3 - dp print
Weedy S3M3 - deal with casters and faust (may help siege with cannon)

I’ll replace either cuora or mostima with (borrowed) hoshi or suzuran respectively to make things easier.
May reposition cuora/hoshi and eyja to assist tanking and killing faust respectively.

Sniper debuff strat (10 man team):
Blaze S2M3 - block and kill enemies in front of blue exit
Schwarz S3M3, Ange S2M3, Elysium S2M3, W S2M2 - Deal with avengers, casters and faust
Saria S2M3 - heal team from ballista and tank faust
Ptlio SL7 - heal team from ballista
Pram S2M1 or Shamare S2M3 - phy debuff avengers and faust, and dmg amp for blaze
Bagpipe S3M3 (borrowed) - sp talent and killing first avenger for smoother early game (when schwarz is not ready).
Myrtle S1M3 - dp print and stall avengers in schwarz range if needed

I do have the option to replace bagpipe with SA S3M3 to assist dps both lanes to help blaze and killing first avenger simultaneously. My early game would be slower but it should be fine.

So I’m not a pro by any means and don’t even really plan to try hard the CC (i’m more of a collector).

However IF I can help someone by sharing my Operators, I will be more than happy, so here my Code and Support Unit.
Silence S3 M1 , Utage S2 M3 , W S3 M3 (or S2 M3 if you think it’s better, let me know)

Also here all my Evo 2 Operators (be aware that Ifrit will also be in the pool, I’m currently uping her), let me know if one of them would be better for this CC , not only for me, but also as Support Unit to use for my friends.
I’m ready to help if I can, I hope… :ak_wshock:

Feel free to ask me to change something or give me your advice, I would gladly talk about it :)

Here are all my 5★ and 6★ Operators pool if you want to go serious on this, but don’t feel forced to it, replying to the above question and sharing your idea for a Support is more than enough :heart:

Summary

Thanks in advance for your time and I hope I can be of use ! :ak_wshock:
