As I started hearing the hype for Summer Umu, I looked ahead and decided to save up for her. At the same time, I decided to try for Tamamo Lancer, since my current best Lancer is Jalter Lily and the wait would give me enough time after SE.RA.PH to build some quartz back up.
However, when I was trying to plan out my SQ, I didn’t notice the original Tamamo was in this banner. My go-to team tends to be Altria Archer and Waver, so boosting my Arts team seems like it would be pretty helpful.
In terms of budget, I try to stay F2P, but I have already slipped in whaling for Melt and have resigned myself to whaling for Umu if necessary. Currently, I’m sitting at 260 quartz and 12 tickets, so barring exceptional luck I won’t get both Tammys.
The original version helps with my Arts team and rolling for her would give more times to build up SQ for Summer Umu, however she also has multiple other banners in the future.
The Lancer version would give me a strong single target Lancer, and to my knowledge she doesn’t come back after this summer’s rerun.
So in short: go for Tamamo now, or wait for her Lancer form?
