The Moon Goddess event is the second major event that comes to the NA version of F/GO following the Nero festival. In this event, players are required to farm for event items known as dangos which have two different types, the normal ones and the special ones.
The normal dangos are used to exchange for items from the event shop while the special ones are required to unlock the storyline for the event. The event storyline will unlock at 10, 40, 100 and 200 special dangos respectively. The extra special dangos that you get can be traded for the normal ones at the event shop.
Event CEs & Dumpling drop bonus
New CEs are also released during this event and by equipping them you are able to increase the amount of Dumplings dropped per battle.

Dumpling Farming Guide
The drop rates increase effect from the event CEs is calculated in a way that multiplication is going to be applied first before the additional sum. For example, if you obtained 2 dangos from a battle while equipping two +2 CEs and a +100% one, you’re going to get 2 x (1+100%) + 2 + 2 which is equals to 8 dangos in total. Therefore, if you are getting 3 dangos or lower per box, it is more efficient to equip the +3 CE rather than the +100% one.
In terms of AP efficiency, it is better for players to farm the 5AP quest with +3 CEs equipped and only farm the 40AP one if you have a stable strategy of defeating the boss with no problem and has more than two +100% CEs equipped.

Which Rewards should I get?
The very first item that you should get from the event shop is the 5* CE, Moonlight Festival. This CE increases your Dango drops by 3 and since you only need 500 dangos to purchase the first one, it should be your first priority as the increase in dango drops will stack up pretty quickly throughout your farming for more dangos.
After that, the next item that we should get are the monuments. Due to the current daily quests system in the NA version, it is very difficult to farm for the monuments that you want for your servants as the boss appearing at the last stage would always be random. Therefore, for those who are frustrated with the monuments farming, this is the best time to get them.
As there aren’t many other items that you can get from the event shop, consider buying all the Fou cards to boost your favourite servants as the only way to obtain them right now is by exchanging them with mana prisms. On the other hand, the cost for the second and third copy of the event CE is a huge jump from the first one, costing 2000 and 5000 dangos respectively. Considering that the CE is not really that useful in terms of increasing star generation compared to the other upcoming CEs such as Piece of Year 2030, it is not worth the effort to Limit Break it as you still have to get another two copies by getting them directly from farming instead of buying from the event shop.
Therefore, the minimum amount of dumplings that you should farm are:
Moonlight Festival x1 = 500 Archer Monument x20 = 800 Caster Monument x20 = 800 Assassin Monument x20 = 800 Fou ATK card x10 = 1000 Fou HP card x10 = 1000
Total = 4900 dangos
