    After a long time of pining for a single Haku but getting multiple dupes of all the others in the pantheon, Haku has finally arrived in my box. Of course, her heyday is long over (though I'm sure she's still useful) and I'm not sure I have anything to do with her at the moment, but at least she's there if I need her, and that's what matters.

    Where did she come from? Today's daily free REM roll for this month.... I never expected that.

    Anyway, I guess my tenure in the No Hakus Club is finally at an end. @Tek7 , you're holding down the fort now.

    Right? I got mine from a Super GF not too long ago myself. Definitely not too disappointed I finally got her, felt like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, as if a curse has been lifted :D

    *sings "All By Myself" in a sorrowful tone*

    But with all sincerity, congratulations!

    Every time a gold egg rolls out of the daily freebie REM, I hold my breath and hope it's Haku. Rolling AA Luci and Yamato helped ease the pain, but the month's not over yet and I'm holding out hope!

    I've rolled 5 Hakus, 2 V-day Hakus, and a Christmas Haku (very light NIAP, maybe $50 over 3+ years). I wish I could spread the Haku wealth around.

    I still haven't rolled a single member of the Constellation 2 pantheon. Not that it's the greatest pantheon, but one of them would be nice eventually.

    I've said it before and I'll repeat it now - my observation has been that everyone falls into two camps: either they have zero Hakus or they have more than three. Absolutely no one has just ONE Haku. Therefore, I fully expect the REM to start spitting out Hakus at me like clockwork now. ;)

    Congrats. After 6+ years, I got my first Lakshmi out of the daily REM the other day, so that’s nice I guess.

    I have exactly three. Counterexample!

    Congrats :D I thought it just rained dupes of ancient dark cards that didn't get use anymore. 3 more I can make a full page of Hakus, Durgas, Yomis, and Satsukis.

    Poor Durga, never even stood a chance at any point of her life. I ALMOST beat A1 with her when her Awoken was released... almost... Now, she's just trash and I have 5 of her collecting dust in my box and dupes of her is unnecessary.

    She's actually awesome on Saber. First I've used her since Dathena days.

    Waiting for details but the last Evo on the stream was a Haku. Good time to finally roll one?

    Depends, do you want to make a TPA dark team?

    EDIT: Looks like the Four Gentlemen got the biggest buffs of the night/morning. Still waiting on a translation.

    Sure, if it's worth making :D

    I can't really be bothered to look into the "buffs" lists. They just buff a bunch of junk no one really uses except for a few one-offs. If they start buffing all of the stuff that is already used, I'm interested. Otherwise, just gimme more evos.

    I agree that the buffs are sad--almost all farmable garbage. The Four Gentlemen buffs aren't as strong as I thought, e.g., giving Plum's team 1.5x damage and making the leads unbindable doesn't change it from being a terrible team.

    Ultimately, the stream was pretty disappointing. I'm interesting in Ilm as a possible Shirou sub, and the GFE Athena/Valk/Zeus assists are cool. Typhon is a nice sub, but I dunno what team would use him (Akuma/7x6?). That's about it. Still hoping for random SFV buffs.

    Typhon will be really good if you are swimming in Ideals and Cottons. I'm not so I'm a bit disappointed there. Been waiting for his evo too. I think they will all find uses as subs but not entirely sure where yet either. Ilm makes sense for Shirou for sure.

    Hey guys.

    So I, uh, pulled Haku on my JP account last night. (Y'know, the account I barely touch except to play ranking dungeons early and pull on collabs NA will never get. WHY DO YOU NOT LOVE US YOKAI WATCH.)

    Then my daughter pulled Haku on her account this morning. She was ecstatic, though I can't tell what percentage of her excitement was motivated by pulling a monster she wanted (estimated 20%) and what percentage was motivated by pulling a card I've wanted for so very long but somehow still don't have (estimated 80%).

    Going on 1800 days on my main and still no Haku.

    I was going to start my own thread titled "No Haku Club" to post this, but I was going to tag @Hansey anyway and I just couldn't work up the motivation.

    :(

    Hahah, laughed pretty hard at this. :D:D Probably closer to 2%, 98%.

    I kept expecting to pull Haku on my alt, but it never happened. Not sure how I would have reacted if I had, but probably much the same as you. Still keeping my fingers crossed for you!

    Welp, I called it. Just pulled Haku #2 from the Super Seasonal godfest. I expect to have a full team of Haku within the month.

    I pulled Haku #2 on my alt earlier this week. T_T

    My last desperate roll for Haku on my main netted me Uriel #4. My free daily REM (t)roll later that day? Uriel #5.

    At some point, this has moved from RNG being RNG to this game openly mocking my desire to roll Haku on my main. :/
