Your pulling plans?

7 Million Downloads Banner 2 Topic
2019-09-12 00:00 ~ 09-25 20:59 PDT

The 7 Million Downloads banner marks the return of Merlin. He’s the main draw here, for obvious reasons, but there are also some Artorias if you want ‘em.

Merlin (5* Caster)

Merlin is the best servant in the game. He has insane damage boostage, great NP enabling, tons of healing, and an AoE invuln on top of all that. Merlin is one of those servants you either already have, pointedly don’t want, or are probably pulling for.

Artoria Pendragon (5* Saber)

Artoria is a very plain AoE Buster servant. She has good NP damage and she eventually gets a buff that makes her a solid farmer, but she’s pretty underwhelming outside of that. Really hard to justify pulling for her when Merlin is also on rate-up unless you absolutely love the character.

Artoria Pendragon (5* Lancer)

Lartoria is among the least impressive of the SSR Lancers. Her 50% battery makes her nice to have for farming, but her NP damage is low-ish and she suffers from cooldown issues. As with OG Artoria, it’s hard to justify pulling for her with Merlin also here.

Artoria Pendragon (Alter) (4* Saber)

Saber Alter has really high NP damage, which is neat, but that’s all she brings to the table and unlike OG Saber she doesn’t even have a battery to make farming easier. Passable spook, but not someone to target.

Artoria Pendragon (Alter) (4* Lancer)

Lalter is the best non-Merlin Servant on this banner, and her bursty Buster Crit playstyle actually meshes really well with Merlin himself. She’s a powerful-if-bland Buster Crit servant with a very good offensive servant, and she definitely brings the quality of this banner up.

Should You Pull?

If you don’t have Merlin, then yes, you should probably pull here. It’ll be nearly two years before he returns, and having Merlin access really does make both story content and CQs a lot more manageable. He’s even helpful for farming in certain setups. This is a rotating banner, though, and the non-Merlin days are a lot less attractive, so if you’re pulling, make absolutely sure you’re pulling on the right day or days.

Best of luck to those pulling!

Since I already own NP2 Merlin by some random ticket miracle followed by a GSSR denial of a 5 star I don't own. This is a hard skip from me. Onto Parvati and Tomoe with tickets I go!

Best of luck to everyone attempting to acquire Merlin!

Hoping for NP2 myself, but who knows.

Yeah, definitely pulling. If I have to use up my budget for the rest of the year, so be it.

I would like both Salter and Lalter but its not likely I'll get Merlin before them (but this gacha is strange).

Good luck to everyone. Just a few more hours until the salt begins. I just hope I don't have to go over 600 quartz.

I'm sending you all my GSSR Merlin cockblocking me from Xuanzang/Schez/Waver luck in hopes you get NP2.

Definitely pulling as many resources as I have. Wasn't around the last time his banner dropped.
Here's hoping I can pull him within 330 SQ / 26 tickets (or 600SQ at the very max but that requires my wallet which I'd rather not bring into this)

Don't let Merlin hear that. Oh, who am I kidding, he hears all...

The 5 tickets from Da Vinci and the 10 from the log in Bonus, as well as any other tickets in the meantime, Merlin would be nice but mainly hoping for Lalter to pop up.
