Now, I’m aware that many people probably just set their sights on certain banners for the year and put hard limits on their spending, but as a GSSR-only player on my main and purely f2p on my alts, I have to pretty much plan all my quartz spending to the T. There’s probably any number of ways to do this, but here’s how I personally approach it.
As I’ve let it be known many times, I love using /u/zuth2’s FGO Manager tool. So I added another sheet named “Quartz planner” to my own copy, which looks something like this:
On this sheet, I list out my current quartz, the banner dates for all the servants I want to pull, and the projected quartz I’ll have by each banner date. Now how do I calculate the projected quartz? Fortunately, FGO Manager has just such a functionality… under “Tools”.
Now, what I do is look up the specific banner dates in the Servant Look-Up (which I then list in my quartz planner tab), fill my streak and quartz information in Summoning Planner, then enter in the banner date I plan to pull on. It will then calculate your expected quartz by that exact date in the Total row. I then list that in my quartz planner tab and repeat for each banner. If you already have the banner dates, you can just copy and paste each date one at a time into the “Up to” blank at the top of the Summoning Planner.
The quartz total is based on event quartz from the zuth2’s own Event Compendium as well as login, streak, and master mission quartz. It’s quite accurate, and the only thing it leaves out is variable quartz (such as the extra mission quartz for interludes completed in the 16 million download campaign). Actual banner dates will vary a little since the stated dates are original JP dates.
As you can see from my sheet, I tend to allot 600 quartz per pull since I don’t consider my luck to be particularly good, and I’d like to be on the safe side. Anyway, that’s how I plan out my quartz saving. How do you personally do it?
