This Valentine event features a unique system compared to other events. It has nine currencies instead of the usual three - Material Chocolate, seven chocolate coins representing each class, and the All coins, which represent special classes and can be traded into any of the other eight coins.
Valentine Craft Essences
The significance of the class coins lies with this event’s main feature - that of special valentine CEs belonging to female Servant(s) the player owns. Obtainable by exchanging 150 coins of the Servant’s class, each of these CEs also comes with a unique scene which shows the Servant giving a chocolate to the player. (These scenes can be viewed in My Room afterwards).
Event Craft Essences
Event CEs (both free and gacha) increase coin drops when equipped. The details of these bonuses are as follows:
Melty Sweetheart (Free *5) - increases all Chocolate Coin drops by 2
Street Choco-Maid (*5) - increases Chocolate Coin drops of the equipped Servant’s class by 5
Kitchen Patissiere (*4) - increases Chocolate Coin drops of the equipped Servant’s class by 3
Valentine Dojo of Tears (*4) - increases Chocolate Coin drops of the equipped Servant’s class by 1
Quests and Farming
This event’s free quests are divided into two categories - those of Three Knights, and those of Four Horsemen. As a rule of thumb, the higher the quest’s AP requirement, the better it is. Something that has to be noted, however, is the appearance rate up mechanic unique to this event. Each day at 0:00 and 12:00, certain classes will have their appearance rate greatly increased. As such, it is highly recommended to farm the class having a rate-up during these periods.
The appearance rate up schedule is as follows: Day 1: Rider (0:00) and Assassin (12:00) Day 2: Lancer (0:00) and Archer (12:00) Day 3: Rider (0:00) and Saber (12:00) Day 4: Rider (0:00) and Saber (12:00) Day 5: Caster (0:00) and Berserker (12:00) Day 6: Saber (0:00) and Archer (12:00) Day 7: Assassin (0:00) and Caster (12:00) Day 8: Lancer (0:00) and Saber (12:00)
Due to the event’s focus on Chocolate CEs, this event is one where the ‘mandatory list’ is more or less decided entirely by the player - that is, depending on how many CEs the player wishes to acquire. However, it is highly important to get the *5 event CE Melty Sweetheart first, as it will help the farming process immensely (especially when lacking gacha CEs). Also of note is the Crystallized Lore, which costs 1000 Material Chocolates.
To fully clear the shop, a total of 36600 Material Chocolates are needed.
