I highly recommend grabbing free event servants. Even if you are not particularly fond of the character, chances are you won't get more than 10 4* servants in a year if you're f2p, so any helping hand helps, especially one that costs you no ascension materials and comes at a whopping free max leveled NP.

Nobu is also leaps and bounds better than Halloween Liz as a damage dealer, thanks to her strong third skill, and the fact that her NP is effective against any enemy saber-class servant, more so if they are divine (Altera is pretty much dead meat).

Story-wise, whimsical events aside, I found Okeanos to be a big improvement compared to Septem, pretty exciting battles and fun characters. Not a lot is at stake yet, so for now likeable characters and cool adventures are the most you're gonna get out of the current chapters.

I did with Bathory for Halloween because my best mage is Hans, who isn't much of a damage dealer. I'm not bothering with Oda, because I have Emiya at 92 and the skulls take significant effort to acquire. The Christmas event is an interesting case. I only have Martha at 50, but ought to easily have all her ascension mats by the time the current event ends.

On a different note, I got a 7th-day ticket yesterday and managed to yolo a Poster Girl event CE. Score!

About Hans...he's actually one of the best caster bros you can get in the game. Take a look at his NP - it has great heals and if paired up with your hardest-hitting servants, he can make them do some really scary damage. You won't regret building him up.

But yeah, he's not much of a damage-dealer himself - getting Eli-chan was a good decision (better than nothing, anyway).

+1 to this. Free event servants help to even the playing field for anyone who refuses to spend real-world money (& has horrible RNG), and they will be invaluable down the line when both the story & difficulty really starts to pick up.

Especially don't miss out on the Kara no Kyoukai and Prisma Ilya events, those servants are in my A-team for being so reliable
(I'd also include Onigashima and the 2nd Christmas event, but the NA players would have to wait until next Christmas for that...)

Re the main quests, try not to judge too early - Okeanos is still relatively early-game.

That's...a really huge investment O.o
I got her during the new year (she was my first 2017 servant, so it was a perfect New Year's gift), but I didn't know that she would be so exclusive...just saw that she would appear in a main quest chapter and assumed she would naturally end up on story gacha.

If it makes you feel better, I have no outstanding casters (Eli-chan & Irisviel are my only 4* casters, I naturally have no 5*), so I'm deeply jealous of your NP 2 Sanzo.

Oh, don’t get me wrong, I love Hans. He typically sits in my first reserve slot, right in front of Heracles. Just to give an example of how a free player can make things work (for anyone that might read), I’ve never found a kaleidoscope (start with 80% charge on np (super) attack), and only have one Imaginary around (60%). So I keep a maxed out Dragon’s Meridian (50%) on Hans. It’s cheap, and with his skills, it lets me use his noble phantasm as soon as he enters the field. Great stuff.

Then you need to dip your fingers in some mayo and smear it all over your iDevice screen for greater REALISM!
