  3. So, what's the big deal about Nerofest?
I see people talking about it all of the time, but the shop list doesn't make it seem much different than any other event.

The shop list isn't what everyone is excited for: it's the lotto. It's why people save up their apples.

Any new player NEEDS nerofest lotto, since it will set them up for the entire year and beyond for pieces and monuments. Plus, effectively unlimited materials, governed solely by your time and patience.

The other big one is christmas, which is even better once you've had at least one nerofest. It swaps out statues for gems.

You can literally farm lotto box endlessly, except limited CEs and Crystalized Lore. There are embers and gems. Lots of them. Which mean you don’t need to farm daily quests for a longggggg time.
If you get to hell, tell them I sent you. You get a free T-shirt.

Not quite right this year. Nerofest 3, Christmas 2, and Christmas 3 all have gems. I personally like it better that way, since statues are much more common than gems in regular event shops and the latter is always in short supply for anyone as a result.

Eh, x.x . The embers and gold gems seem fine, but there's not really anything else I actually NEED, I guess.

I'll continue to use my apples and (sometimes) quartz in the meantime.

Fine? Are you not leveling your servant's skills? Each 3* needs 36 Gold Gems, and that requires weeks of normal AP grinding.

s***, thats just golds. Personally I'm chronically short on blues too. About the only thing I have a decent amount of is reds, and only for a couple of classes. Basically, I love Nerofest.

It is also the exhibition quests.
