Some of the most common questions I see on the board is how much quartz we’ll have by a certain banner, or how many event mats we’ll have by a particular date. Thankfully, zuth2’s FGO Manager calculates all this and does much, much more. While there are a lot of servant planners around, none are quite as complete (or aesthetically appealing) as FGO Manager. You can find it here: https://www.reddit.com/r/grandorder/comments/cz3hak/tool_fgo_manager_v10/
This is by far the tool I use most and I basically have it open all the time. The above link explains most of the details on how to use it – it’s pretty straightforward – but I’ll go a little more in-depth into certain functions with some screenshots.
This page, labelled Main [NA], is the guts of the servant and event planner. For the Material Management, just fill out how much you currently hold for each material/ascension item. For Priorities, fill out the servants you plan to ascend/skill up in the future, and input desired skill levels. Current levels will default to skills 1/1/1 and servant level 1 unless you fill out the current levels in the Roster [NA] tab.
The Event Shop portion is a nifty planning tool for Events. It automatically selects the current event on its own, so just check off the items you intend to buy from the shop, as well as how many you’ve already bought. In the Event Farming Section, put in how many Drops/Run you expect to get. You may have to do some simple math to calculate this using Gamepress’s figures. For instance, if Gamepress says you’ll get 1200% of 2 drops of a bronze currency for the optimal bronze farming quest, and you’re running +2 bronze bonus, then multiply 12 x (2+2) for 48 bronze drops per run on average. FGO Manager will then calculate how much AP it will take to farm your desire shop items for that currency, as well as how much time it will take using natural AP.
One really unique option is to add event mats to your existing material totals in Material Management. I don’t often do this (because I’m afraid I’ll forget to undo it later!), but it’s a pretty cool way to predict how well covered your material needs are by a certain date, provided you do every event. Just pick an event from the drop down list, and clear it if you want to revert back to your original totals.
The Tools section is fantastic and self-explanatory, telling you the prizes for each event, how many mats you expect from one event to another, the mat requirements for each servant, and of course, the quartz/ticket calculator in the Summoning Planner, which will let you tally how much quartz to expect from one date to another. This calculator is very smart, in that it automatically calculates the 3rd anniversary login bonus quartz for you, provided you fill in your logins. Probably the only thing it doesn’t calculate is bonus interlude/rank up completion quartz from future download campaigns – 'cause how could it? You can add that yourself in bond/maintenance prediction quartz, though.
There’s a lottery planner as well in the Lottery tab, where you can plan out how many boxes to farm and your expected gains and apple cost.
As mentioned before, you’ll want to fill out the Roster [NA] tab with whatever upgrade priority servants you already have in your roster so the Main [NA] tab can update accordingly. You may notice that I’ve copied and added two more planning and roster tabs for two more accounts. In order to link these additional planning and roster tabs, though, you’ll need to go into Data --> Named ranges and add a couple of ranges for each account, and update the spreadsheet formulas for ‘Level’ and ‘Current Skills’ accordingly. Let me know if you need further details on this.
