Can't go wrong with Pram/Cliffheart. And it's hard to suggest pairings unless we get your full roster, but if you have either Andreana or Specter, go and raise Skadi. Greythroat has a dynamic with Blaze in chapter 6. And Surtr + Mudrock for meta memes or Mudrock + Blemishine for endless spins.
>>
>>3482254
You mean individually? Greythroat/Blaze, Skadi/Spectre, and Ifrit/Eyja are all pretty popular.
If it just between those, I've seen a little manticore/nightmare. Manticore freaks out a little since nightmare can see through her powers.

So, I don't really know where else to ask this but:
A friend kind of challenged me to write a Texas/Lappland story, and I know very, very little about Arknights at all. I understand the basics of how the world works, but is there anything I can use to get a better grasp of how these two interact and feel about each other? Any scenes I can watch, details to watch out for and use? I want to understand more before I start.

Hoo boy. This is gonna be a tough one. Essentially, Texas is maybe a former mafioso whose family got eradicated or something but is now trying to leave the life behind, and Lappland knows her history and is a psycho bitch who killed mafia members before. Possibly even Texas's family I dunno it's ambiguous. This pairing is intensely problematic because Texas doesn't interact with Lappland at all. None. Lappland constantly mentions her, but Texas doesn't talk about Lappy ever. I imagine it'll be hard to write about.

Here's a reference that could help.
>>
>>3484926
The other post covers most of it. Lappland is kinda insane and constantly tries to pester Texas, the main obsession being she wants to "bring back the old Texas". Texas for the most part actively tries to ignore her, and given her background doesn't want to be associated with an old figure from her past.
There's also this blurb in Lappland's file which I think is kinda implied to be written by Texas:
>[Classified Log]
Comment accessed from another classified source:
In the future, you may want to think carefully about how you handle Lappland.
She's alone wolf(note: this is Lupus slang for a Lupus ostracized from the community) who's been hurt. She's lost her family and will never truly be a part of another one.
You don't need to know what's been keeping her alive till now, and you can try to heal her wounds, but remember this: Madness can never be healed.
Nothing in her past should happen again.
If you still decide to keep her around, you'll ultimately be faced with a choice... Maybe you're not yet mentally ready to fight her.
So please, listen to my advice again: For your sake and the sake of those you care about, do choose wisely.

Oh yeah, that blurb is basically the only thing we have about Texas acknowledging Lappland in any capacity. Which I think still speaks a fair bit, because if Tex is so determined to avoid the ghost of her past, then why make an effort to warn us about her?

TexLapp is one of those ships where you have your work cut out for you to make it believable. I personally don't like most depictions. Lappy is enamored with cold-blooded murderer Texas and Tex unfortunately turned over a new leaf. It's pretty popular fanon that they got along years ago, though. Maybe Tex feels guilty about abandoning Lappy after she got infected, who knows? Until canon comes along and shoots it down, pretty much anything is fair game.

I've never thought about this until now, but have Ifrit and Eyja ever interacted with each other? It seems like that's just kinda the default ship for them with a decent amount of art, but I can't remember any in-game stuff.
>>
>>3488657
I don't think so. The ship is probably mostly popular because they're both powerful AoE mages and the impulsive and hotheaded plus reserved and timid combo is a classic.

What the other anon said. Their mechanics complement each other well too (both have Res debuff). Also they seem to be around the same age, but I guess that depends on how old you think Eyja is.

It's kinda funny because Eyja specifically mentions Mousse as a playmate in her profile but I've never seen ship art of that.

This was a lot harder than the last CC. The golems can get really hard to kill really fast with just a couple of risks. I'll try for yuri clear next week or maybe after I watch a guide. Right now it's a bit much.
>>
>>3498032
This was by far the easiest CC ever, it only takes a handful of operators because you can just let the golems go through.
>>
>>3498034
Doesn't work that well in practice because they destroy the rubble on their way out, and then Mudrock goes directly to the left instead of going up and over.
>>
>>3498042
It works incredibly well in practice. Suzuran, Eyja, and Haze can solo the map with a quick redeploy operator as backup. You just pop Eyja when Mudrock is in range. There are a whole number of 3 operator lineups. Exusiai, Rosa, and Schwarz is another popular one.
>>
>>3498053
Don't understand your point. Surtr could pretty much solo the last CC. Having the perfect characters and abusing the cheesiest setup possible doesn't make it easy.
>>
>>3498075
The fact it requires so few operators, no difficult timing, no mandatory operators or skill masteries, and you can let two enemies pass and still win makes it easy. You get 13 operators for a map which requires 3 so yeah it's by far the easiest to date.
>>
>>3498086
Ok, and the last one only required 1/2, so it's easier?
>>
>>3498101
To my knowledge, risk 18 Cinder required more than 1-2 operators and didn't allow you to have 13. Also that one has all sorts of timing with setting off the alarm guys at the right time. Also only 3 of the baddies on the current map are remotely a threat and you can ignore 2 of them, while on Cinder about half of them are serious threats.
>>
>>3498125
What? the only threats in cinder were the mages, and they're not even half as strong as the threats here. everything else was fairly weak melee enemies,

If you only managed to do risk 18 today, you missed out on 'trimming' the SSS medal (it's not holographic) since that was a week 1 only thing. Other than that, I think you're fine.

>>
>>3501503
Since the second CC, if you get a R18 clear on the first week you get a foil medal. Clearing in week 2 gets you a regular medal. They release new affixes on the second week which generally can make getting the 18 easier in most cases. Though this was the easiest CC to date.

>>3501505
It was not.
>>
>>3501508
Not that guy but it definitely was, the fact you only need one commonly borrowable 6* and the rest are operators everyone has and there are no clutch timings at all and you can just skip the difficult enemies makes it by far the easiest.
>>
>>3501509
Ok, "not that guy", just ignore the other CC had just as easy crutchs anyway.

Do I keep going at Surtr...20 rolls left. Saga and Dusk arent meta changing operators right, last I saw they were just neat meme characters
>>
>>3503973
If you don't mind speding irl money, Surtr will be available from the 2nd anniversary 6* selector ticket. Otherwise she will be in the cert shop in the future, if you're patient.

I think Saga is unfortunately a case of outright powercreep--Siege gets dommed by her hard. However Bagpipe + flagbearers are still the meta option.

Meanwhile Dusk has an interesting stalling ability with her skills, but being an above-average AoE caster in a pretty underwhelming class isn't really saying much. Eyja's mere existence renders the entire class redundant.
>>

Nah, don’t plan to drop cash on AK anymore, and how does Saga compare to Siege at all.

I don't like to risk things without a full 50 guarantee but yeah, Saga at best has a soft immortality survival proc while being extremely loud and filling an already defunct role. Dusk is just if you like the character/VA, which really should be the case for any operator since you can just outlevel any challenge with rewards. "Meta" is a trap for how to not enjoy things.

>>3504694
Potential's been there since inception with profile hints if not Lava as a trial run so not really surprised, after all the shit in chapter 8 a holiday version suits her. Not that offensive and could be neat if it advances her character like Skadi. I did think it was Blaze at first though, that's kind of unfortunate.

I don't mind alts, but I would prefer if they were kept for special occasions like Skalter or lower rarity operators like Purgatory. Even when I played FGO, I was never all that interested in summer alts. Fanservice aside, basic swimsuit stuff is just kinda boring to me character design wise. I guess the silver lining here is that sniper Chen's ingame sprites are based on her E1 design, which looks much nicer.
>>
>>3504703
Oh yeah, that's a saving grace. Has the cute Talulah keychain doll too, I guess best of both worlds.

I just remembered too, if anyone was on the fence about Ch'en's outfit in the shop right now, it's essentially free if you don't mind "banking" the OP for maybe six months. With Skadi they said if they release an alt version who can't use the original's outfit, you'll get a ticket for one free outfit. When I heard about that it was obviously no longer a matter of if they'll do other alts but who and when. Got about a day if you want to take advantage of that foresight.

Does make me wonder though, maybe they won't delay A Walk in the Dust and Under Tides and run the summer limited for the New Years/Anniversary instead since unlike last year they'd have something to offer instead, and otherwise it'll get pretty messy if we literally go from delayed Skadi limited to Ch'en limited.
>>
>>3504738
>maybe they won't delay A Walk in the Dust and Under Tides
I've been wondering if they are trying to lessen the delay between CN and global. The back to back events we've had for the last month or so have already bridged the gap by a week or two if my math doesn't fail me.
>>
>>3504701
I actually don't mid timeskipped alts like Lava because that's a cool alternate take on the character and fits well enough in the world. I'd be fine with seeing like a Guard Shining and the like somewhere down the line, I mean it'd be a little weird but certainly a lot more fitting than Ch'en Just In A Bikini. Especially since summer skins already exist if you want your beach bod squad, using a banner slot for a dedicated summer unit whyy

>>3504703
Oh that does look a lot cooler, slightly less annoyed now. No idea what's up with that E2 art

Maybe not entirely catch up per se but yeah, if nothing else I was a little surprised https://gamepress.gg/arknights/event-banner-hub/new-year-2021-sign-event-cn-event-page has just been dropped from the equation since it's the same as the one we got warming up to Nian last year. Maybe it'll show up later but if you cut a few dead days here and login event there, I could see it being summer event in January.

>>3504759
I won't be surprised by a Confessor Shining or something involving the truth of Nightingale during/after the Victoria arc, yeah. That's pretty fair, it's less "special" than usual but I'm at least hoping the concession is it's post-chapter 8 Ch'en that went soul searching and ended up in Siesta during Obsidian Festival. New operator means she should have new character developed lines that an outfit wouldn't give. Summer limited is a convenient market excuse.

Given how focal she was to the story I'm less surprised they want to keep pandering attention to her, now I think about it. Like oh yeah, of course it is. She'll probably reference and lead into more Talulah story too.
>>

It's a pretty clear money grabbing move. Instead of coming up with new Limited Operators that may or may not be received well, they just re-make fan favorites now.

I assure you CN is mad about this. Nobody wanted a 4th fucking limited when we’re already struggling to keep up with 3 a year. And there’s still a possibility someone like Closure or Shining or even Siege may be the limited for chapter 9. Who actually wanted a whole ass summer alt instead of a summer skin for Ch’en?
>>
>>3505072
You don't have to roll on all 4 limited banners...
>>
>>3505075
That’s not the point. They’re going the FGO/GBF route of “popular character but in a swimsuit” in order to entice players with little effort. Including her being limited. This is something I’d expect from lesser gacha, not AK, so I’m disappointed.

- Lin Yuhsia is the secondary protagonist and pairs up with Ch'en to take down baddies

Also Specter got her operator record re-done and it's much better, thank god. Gladiia and Skadi also show up in it.

Ch'en's profile is about what I expected, soul searching vacation after chapter 8, advancing her character past the main story arc in ways an outfit wouldn't and all that, even devoting the last file to just a single line about Talulah's fate. The long letter from Hoshi reinforcing their relationship and how busy Hoshi is was unexpected and cute though.

Wonder if they always had a second operator record in mind for Specter but couldn't release it until after Under Tides. Using the first as a prologue to the event and reminder that she spends most of her time in bed, of course it'd fall flat, so that's nice.

I doubt it. Eyja's record actually has two separate files taking place during different points in time, while Specter had just the one. They could've easily handed her slot over to a different operator and then properly released hers post-UT if they wanted to avoid spoiling stuff too soon. Unfortunately the trashfire we got was the original one, and the only reason we got a better one was because CN made such a fuss over it.

Was a fun story but god the event missions this time were annoying
>>
>>3514746
I found them less annoying than normal since they were so easy if you knew the gimmick.
>>
>>3514747
I like the idea of giving enemies different attributes, I just think a plain and simple oh you do more damage if the colors match and less damage if they don't is boring and kind of annoying when the maps are designed to make aligning attributes hard. And don't get me started on those ultra durable enemies that are unblockable unless you share their color.
>>
>>3514746
Was there a proper way to do the challenge mode map with the roadblocks and the stingrays? I took an entire day's worth of practice plans just working out how to get the max damage/stall needed for my Ifrit kill lane at the bottom.
>>
>>3514807
You were suppose to block and retreat/re-block certain paths to make the sting rays change color the correct amount of times so that they become blockable in front of each blue base.
>>
>>3514807
I think they wanted you to route it out and correctly assign each stingray to its proper color blocker, but yeah I did that too. Was this nightmarish configuration but pretty fun to set up. You know a map gimmick is a hassle when you'd rather completely ignore it than try to work with it.

EX-6 was fun though, felt like a little puzzle instead of some timing/unit stats check.
>>
>>3515040
No, the real Dawn died a long time ago. The Dawn we meet in the painted world is what Dusk envisions her as. The final event cutscene shows a conversation between her and an elderly, dying Dawn, who asked Dusk to paint the town she remembers after giving Dusk some details to work with. Like talking about the bookshop and how Dawn liked the clothes the bookkeeper wore, which explains what Painted!Dawn is doing in the shop.

I get that the boss was easy since you used two known strongest boss busters, but the rest of the stage is very small bursts of mobs going down a very simple path, you can't say that's harder than the boss.

They certainly required more work than the boss, because I had to remove them and redeploy them after the suicide mobs were done suiciding. The boss was an afterthought once everything else was dead.

The upper level player has the responsibility of reducing the poison gas. The main threats are the gas trucks. It's a matter of killing them as fast as possible so the poison damage doesn't overwhelm you. There are also valves that the upper level player needs to control, but that's a very simple task. Usually, lower level players deploy most their operators on around the bottom-left valve, so just make sure that valve is under control.

- I want the badass Hoshi skin but I don't know what the next set of skins will be, anyone know or got a list?
>>

1. W is limited banner and not yet rerun in CN
2. If a walk in the dust is next, the set will be bloodline of combat set

>W is limited banner and not yet rerun in CN
Strange, Nian is limited too but she got a rerun right? Hope they do the same for W.
>If a walk in the dust is next, the set will be bloodline of combat set
Ok thanks, think I'll get Hoshi skin after all.

>>3533788
Nian was the first limited.

>We are your main vanguard meta and possibly ship forever
Nice, finally some more concrete chapter 9 news, and 9.1? I guess it got really ambitious or they don't want to stagger it over slow release main chapters so much. Either way Victoria was top of my list with Abyssals so got a lot to look forward to.

Speaking of, gear for the wide range snipers including Andreana, that's really nice. No improved/serious idol outfit for Sora during an idol set is a shame but at least she gets an operator record.

Phantom was the banner during Darknights, W came with Chapter 8 after it and I think got added to the limited pool already. Not a great consolation but she can show up when say rolling for Skadi or Ch'en and at 300 rolls she's available from shop tokens during those banners. Nian got rerun cause they added that "spark" shop token system and gave people that'd rolled on the first time the tokens they would have gotten, so they had to run her again under the new system to be fair.

I've been playing for almost a year and I'm starting to get bored of brute forcing everything with meta units so I decided I'm gonna start using Yuriknights as much as I can. Is it ok if I post my friend ID here? I could really use some yuri friends to help fill my roster until I can get more e2s done.
>>
>>3534510
Do it. I'd add you. I raised any of the yuri characters I got for fun, and I was surprised I could clear the game with them.

Feel free to add me even if you dont have yuri characters on support, my friends list has been mostly empty for long enough.

I am a useless doctor.

I'm the same, it's kind of ridiculous. Franka but no Liskarm. Ceylon but no Schwarz. Saria but no Silence. Exusai but no Mostima. I just finally got Texas last week after more than a year, bout time.

The amount of Scavenger yuri is disappointingly small. Not enough love for our canon lesbian.

Looking good and it doesn't seem to have self-insert.

Well, we don’t know about that for sure yet.

the general direction it's going for seems to be set already, human investigator is the main character, and it seems to be the black haired woman.
combat seems like ff13, being mainly for mobile doesn't give me much hope for it being very interesting.
Well, feels like it has yuri potential, but considering this is pre-alpha, it will take years for us to get any further information about the characters.

>>3536217
Looks like it's not a gacha and a straightforward pay once model. I'm interested for sure, the gacha side of AK is honestly pretty weak but they definitely know their gameplay fundamentals.
>>
>>3536398
Well, that definitely sounds a bit more encouraging, but yea, it's most certainly years away.

>Sora gets her time alone with Texas in a different game
>New party members and story will muscle in on that too
Well I'll take it, looks cute. Given their love of yuri, I'm not expecting a full on lesbian romance subplot because of course not, but it'll be nice to see them flex character interactions and chemistry without needing to anchor to the necessary evil of the pet rock player who funds the live service updates because they feel loved by the slightest hint of attention. To be fair Arknights barely even suffers from that and will quite happily write entire events that barely have anything to do with RI, never mind Doctor yourself but yeah. Essentially one and done story is kind of a different medium to episodic live service gachas so it'll be pretty interesting.

Now I just wonder if it's a purely separate world or ancient history and what the collab event will look like.

Okay okay Ch'en is just visiting but what exactly is Bagpipe doing in that picture taped up at bedside so it's the first and last thing Saileach will see every day?
>>
>>3538538
Wait what's Ch'en doing there? Is the ship with Hoshi forever lost in the Bermuda Triangle now? I don't follow CN.
>>
>>3538548
>the ship with Hoshi forever lost in the Bermuda Triangle now?

No, they just have their reunion in the new summer event

Chapter 9 spoiler
It is shame that they introduced cool grandma that shipable with saileach and then killed off immediately
>>
>>3538548
You don’t need to be following CN to know that Ch’en and Bagpipe were roommates back when they were attending Victorian police academy.
>>
>>3538558
Well I started recently and outside of fanworks I haven't played the actual game that much. Where is this mentioned? Also, Bagpipe rate up when?

Blaze is currently in the shop, so if we're lucky, Bags will show up there somewhat soon.
