Fate/EXTRA: The Third Selection (Round 3)


The third Master you'll face in the Holy Grail War is an adorable girl by the name of Alice. She is the most interesting Master so far because behind her cute and child-like demeanor lies a mysterious aura. Here's a guide for the third week of the game. ­

The Third Selection


 
Day 1

Midday:
  • School Building 2F:
    Enemy data is announced on the bulletin board. Your opponent is Alice.
    Enemy Servant Matrix Level 0.

      Speak with Archer


      Save


      Leave your private room
       
      Should I pursue that question?


      ...I probably shouldn't bring it up.
        
    • Rooftop:
      Talk to Rin Tousaka. Although the choices below would only affect your conversation, selecting the second one would make it look like you dislike her.
       

      It's not like I got a choice.


      Better her than you.
       
    • School Building 1F:
      Event with Alice. She'll ask you to play tag with her.
       
      Sure, why not?
        
    •  School Building 1F:
      Talk to Taiga Fujimura and she'll ask you to search for an illicit Magazine inside the school campus.

      Yes ma'am.


      No ma'am.
       
      Now head outside into the Schoolyard and talk to the Male Student there. He'll agree to give you his Comic Book in exchange for a Large Cauldron.
       
    • Nurse's Office:
      Talk to Sakura to receive your weekly supply of healing item, Magic Crystal Shard.
    Arena:
    • Third Chimeric Lunar Sea — First Floor:
      Here's the complete map for this dungeon. Click to enlarge.


      Taiga's Request will only show up on the map if you accepted her request earlier and spoke with the Male Student at the Schoolyard.
       
    • Playing Tag with Alice:
      You'll meet Alice inside the Arena and she'll ask you to play tag and then run away. Chase after her until she summon her friend to block your way.



      Stand and face it.
      Run away.
       
      Since you don't know anything about your enemy, it is wise to run away for now. Face it and you'll be crushed without any ounce of mercy. Use a Return Crystal or run to the entrance to escape. Enemy Servant Matrix Level 1.



      However, if you are brave enough to face the impossible and prove yourself to be worthy, the enemy will escape and you'll see the event below.



      Note: Even if you managed to defeat the red giant during this day, the next day would still proceed like normal and you are still required to get the Vorpal Blade to take it down again.
       
    • Taiga's Request:
      Grab the Cauldron before exiting the Arena as you'll need it tomorrow.

    Day 2

    Evening:
    • School Building 2F:
      Talk to Alice and she'll ask you to play hide and seek with her and then disappear.
       
    • School Building 1F:
      Head to the Arena Entrance to find Alice. She'll answer your questions as a reward for playing with her.
       


      Who is that girl in black?
      Tell your "friend" to move.
       
      Head to the stairs and ask Rin Tousaka about the Vorpal Blade. She'll tell you to find an alchemist to discuss this thing about.

      What is a "Vorpal Blade"?


      Er, I was having fun playing...
       
    • School Building 3F:
      Talk to Issei Ryuudou in front of the bulletin board and he'll tell you about the Atlas Institution where Rani came from. Now proceed to the end of the corridor and talk to Rani.
       
      Are you an Atlas alchemist, Rani?


      It's nothing.

      What is a "Vorpal Blade"?
       
      She'll agree to make you a Vorpal Blade but she'll be needing a Malachite.
        
    • School Building 1F:
      Talk to Rin Tousaka again and she'll agree to give you a Malachite in exchange for a Ruby.

      I don't think she'll give me any.
       
    • Commissary:
      New item available in the shop.

      ITEMS:
      Ruby 5,000,000 PPT
       
      Talk to the Sales Clerk and try purchasing the Ruby. The Sales Clerk will make you a deal and give you the Ruby in exchange for one of Sakura's Lunch.
       
      As I have no choice...*Sigh*


      There's no way I can afford it.
       
      Even if you have enough funds to buy the Ruby, your character would still refuse to purchase it because it's just too expensive.


       
    • Nurse's Office:
      Talk to Sakura and ask her a favor. She'll then give you Sakura's Lunch Ver. 0.

      I have a request.
       
    • Commissary:
      Talk to the Sales Clerk and hand her Sakura's Lunch Ver. 0 to receive a Ruby.
        
    • School Building 1F:
      Talk to Rin Tousaka and hand her the Ruby to receive a Malachite.
        
    • School Building 3F:
      Talk to Rani and hand her the Malachite to receive the Vorpal Blade.
        
    • Schoolyard:
      Talk to the Male Student and hand him the Cauldron to receive Manga. You'll need this item to complete Taiga's request on Day 4.
    Arena:
    • Third Chimeric Lunar Sea — First Floor:
      Go back to the red giant's location and engage him in battle.


        
    • Servant Battle:
      Victory Condition:
      Defeat the enemy.
      Because of the effect of the Vorpal Blade, he is now vulnerable to damage so take him out just like any normal enemy.


      SKILL LIST:
      Alice Eater
      Target: Self
      Increases strength.
      The effect would only last for 3 turns.

      Speak with Caster


      Save


      Leave your private room
       
      I'm not sure I can make that decision.
       
    • School Building 1F:
      Event with Alice. She'll ask you to play a new game with them inside the Arena.
       
    • Schoolyard:
      If you haven't done so yet, this is your last time to talk to the Male Student and hand him the Cauldron to receive Manga. You'll need this item to complete Taiga's request on Day 4.
    Arena:
    • Third Chimeric Lunar Sea — Second Floor:
      Here's the complete map for this dungeon. Click to enlarge.


      Taiga's Request will only show up on the map if you accepted her request on Day 4.
       
    • Playing Tag with Alice — Round 2:
      You meet Alice once again to play a game of tag but she activates a Reality Marble this time to make the game more exciting.



      From now on, the Arena will eat up your existence the longer you stay inside so ignore the items for now and concentrate on chasing the little girl down. After running into a dead end three times, she'll eventually escape and leave Alice's Note behind.

    Day 4

    Evening:
    • Private Room (Saber):
      Special conversation with Saber. Viewing this conversation is required for your Servant to reach Matrix Level E before the end of the game.

      Speak with Saber


      Save


      Leave your private room
       
      Just choose whatever option you want. Since your character suffers from amnesia, you won't be able to tell her anything anyway.

      Like, what sort of school I went to?


      Like, what sort of hobbies I had?


      Like, what sort of person I liked?
       
      I don't have a wish.

      Talk to Rin Tousaka and she'll give you the best advice ever!
       
    • School Building 1F:
      Talk to Taiga Fujimura and give her the Manga. She'll ask you again to search for chunks of ice inside the Arena's second floor.

      Of course.


      I don't have time to play.
    Arena:
    • Third Chimeric Lunar Sea — Second Floor:
      An event with your character will automatically trigger as you enter the Arena.



      Francis...Xavier!
      Your name.
       
      What's funny about this is that even if your character's name is Francis Xavier, the first option would still be incorrect no matter what.



      Alice will appear once again and mention the Nameless Forest before leaving.
      Enemy Servant Matrix Level 2.
       
    • Second Cipher Key:
      Grab the Trigger Code Zeta before exiting the Arena as you'll need it on Day 7.

    • Chapel:
      Talk to Touko Aozaki again and she will tell you to read the note in front of a mirror.
       
    • School Building 1F:
      Head to the Bathroom for the next event. Entering the opposite gender's bathroom will make your character hesitate at first but searching it three times will force the character to shamefully enter.
       
    • Library:
      Search the shelves to learn more about Jabberwock.
      Enemy Servant Matrix Level 3.

      Read it.


      Don't read it.


    Day 6

    Evening:
    • Commissary:
      New items available in the shop.

      ITEMS:
      Super-spicy Mabo Tofu 480 PPT
       
      This item is limited to this day only.

       
      • School Building 1F:
        Talk to Taiga Fujimura to give her the Crushed Ice and she'll give you the key item Taiga's Incense Burner as a reward. You can view the said item inside your Private Room.

        One of the Alices is the Servant.

        Enemy Servant Matrix Level E.
         
      • School Building 1F:
        Talk to Father Kotomine if you are ready and select the first option to proceed.

        Enter the Coliseum


        Continue Preparations
         
      • Elevator to the Coliseum:

        END
        ....We're in a war, Alice.
        END
        I don't want to get hurt.
      Coliseum:
      • Servant Battle:
        Victory Condition: Defeat Caster. (6,336 HP)
        Since this battle is easy enough to win without any necessary equipment, I suggest equipping Exorcist Blade for the upcoming battle after this one. She has pretty low defense so she's really vulnerable to physical attacks which makes this battle a breeze when using Saber or Archer.
        She also strictly follows a set of predetermined attack pattern that repeats every 8 turns. See the chart below for more details.

        ATTACK PATTERN:
        1ST TURN
        2ND TURN
        3RD TURN
        4TH TURN
        5TH TURN
        6TH TURN
        7TH TURN
        8TH TURN

        SKILL LIST:
        White Queen's Enigma
        Target: Self
        Lowers magic resistance when using BREAK.
        The effect would only last for 3 turns.
        The Plains of Winter
        Target: Enemy
        Inflicts magic damage and Stun against ATTACK.
        If successful, you'll be stunned on your next move.
        Frenzied March Hare
        Target: Enemy
        Inflicts magic damage and Stun against GUARD.
        If successful, you'll be stunned on your next move.
        NOBLE PHANTASM:
        Maiden's Empire
        Target: Enemy
        Condition: 8 turns have passed.
        Does magic damage and completely heals your HP.
        She will use her Noble Phantasm on a special turn after the 6th move of the 8th turn, so there is no way to interrupt this Skill.
        CODE CAST:
        Dragon Skillet
        Inflicts damage and Stun vs BREAK.
        If successful, you'll be stunned.
        March of the Black Tea
        Restores Servant's HP.
        Small amount of heal.

        SABER:

         
        ARCHER:

         
        CASTER:

         
      • Aftermath:
        Alice will ask you whether or not you cared for her before she disappears. This option isn't really important but would you say no?


        Yes.


        No.
         
        Event with Leo and Rin when you return to the school.

        I have no choice but to fight.


        I refuse to continue fighting.


        I will find a reason to go on.

      Intermission A

      Evening:
      • School Building 1F:
        Rani and Rin prepares for their elimination battle.
        It is recommended to save your progress on a different slot as this is the point where the story branches into two.

      Intermission B

      Evening:
      • Multimedia Room:
        Event with Julius. After he leaves, you'll see an epic battle between Rin's Lancer and Rani's Berserker. In the midst of battle, Rani decides to self-destruct and bring the whole Moon Cell with her in the explosion. You'll then be given a choice.

        RIN ROUTE
        Use a Command Seal to rescue Rin.
        RANI ROUTE
        Use a Command Seal to rescue Rani.
         
        Your Servant will then interrupt the battle at the cost of one Command Seal.
          
      • Servant Battle:
        Victory Condition: Survive for 1 turn.
        Before the battle begins, your Servant will request the backup of another Command Seal. Don't use it as all it does is reveal the enemy's moves. But if you are under-leveled and really need to use it, then go ahead and do so. There's no consequences in using them.

        Don't use.


        Unleash.
         
        Just keep using your attack Skills with the lowest MP cost to prevent the enemy from attacking you and then use GUARD on the 6th move. For Caster, use her Skill Mantra: Aphotic Cave instead as it works a lot better. Also, if you have Exorcist Blade equipped before fighting Caster, you can Code Cast hack(16); to interrupt his Skill on the 6th move and stun him. This should guarantee your survival in this battle.
         
        SKILL LIST:
        Fallible Bow
        Target: Enemy
        Inflicts physical damage and Stun on an enemy.
        He will use this skill on the 6th move.
         
      End of the Third Round

      Killing Shinji felt good and was quite satisfying but killing Alice was the complete opposite of that, it made me feel bad about it. Not only did I crush a child's innocence but I took her dream as well. This just shows you how cruel this war really is.

      natchu96 said...

      @DWei That is impossible unless you play through NG+ several hundred times or something. It's just that expensive.

      And you didn't really kill them, seeing that Alice was dead possibly several years or even decades/centuries (Judging from clothes) before the War.

      Hello there, I have a problem. I can't seem to beat Berserker no matter what unless I use the Command Seal.

      What will actually happen if I use the Command Seal? Will it effect my journey later on?

      The only far that I survived is at step 5, and then even though I used Guard, my servant (Archer)'s life goes to zero. :/
      And it seems that the steps change when I change techniques as well.

      What level I should be actually, to survive longer?

      Can anyone help?

      Lord Phrozen said...

      You are free to use the Command Seal if you like, you don't have any use for that later anyway. But if you die even after guarding against his Skill at full HP, then I'm afraid that you'll die regardless of whether you use it or not.

      Are you above the recommended level of the last Arena you entered? Because I never encountered any problem like that ever. It was a piece of cake even for my Caster.

      Did you follow what I did in the video? To use Skills on the 1st to 5th move then GUARD on the last one?

      Anonymous said...

      Yes, I'm actually above the recommended level, but Berserker is a real problem for me. However, I can pass if I use Command Seal to reveal all his skills, but I didn't go on since I feared it might affect my future journey and I'm too tired to just repeat it all again.

      But if what you said is true, then I'll just use the Command Seal, since to me it's the only way. Thank you for answering!

      While this is info is negligible, aside from the garden, the alices are also in the field on day 4, talking something about "cutting their heads off"..

      @Cybuster

      Thanks for the info. I can't believed I missed that scene even after finishing the game 4 times already.

      err alice is already dead in real life so there's really nothing there... unless you're into lolis

      Anonymous said...

      There's an error in this guide, regarding Caster. It's actually a pretty critical one, regarding her Noble Phantasm.

      Caster follows an unchanging set of eight patterns every eight turns. With A for Attack, G for Guard, B for Break, and S for skill, her patterns are:

      1 - SAAGGB
      2 - BSAGAG
      3 - ABSGGA
      4 - GGBSAA
      5 - GAGBSA
      6 - AGGABS
      7 - ABSGBS
      8 - GBABBS

      If she has not been beaten by the 8th turn, she will use her Noble Phantasm, which full-heals her. She will do this regardless of HP.

      This is actually pretty thematic of Caster as a servant - the words of the story are always the same, but when the story is finished, you just return to the first page and begin again.

      Lord Phrozen said...

      @Anonymous
      Thanks for sharing that info. I was trying so hard not to kill her to see her Noble Phantasm, and by the time we reach the 8th turn she was around 950 HP. I'll update the guide with this information as soon as possible.

      Anonymous said...

      You've just about got it, but the attack chart isn't /quite/ correct, I think - her sixth move on the 8th turn is a Skill, and THEN she uses her Noble Phantasm (much the same way Savior's comes after the turn proper). I could be wrong on that one, though, so I recommend verifying it.

      Lord Phrozen said...

      @Anonymous
      I just verified, you are correct once again. I also verified this info during my previous revision, it's just that I wasn't paying enough attention I guess. I noticed that the last move she did was a SKILL icon but the last move I saw was her EXTRA move, I just thought it was an error on their part. I didn't notice that her EXTRA comes after the SKILL. Thanks again.

      Hey, no problem! This guide's been a huge help for me, the least I can do is contribute.

      "Commissary:
      Talk to Rani and hand her the Malachite to receive the Vorpal Blade."
      That information is wrong, you changed the place, it is "School Building 3F:" not "Commissary:"

      I'm glad that you are active and take into consideration all the comments posted, I was impressed with the speed of support, congratulations, sorry if i wrote something wrong, it's hard to think in portuguese and write in english correctly :)

      Lord Phrozen said...

      Are you the one who corrected me for that Commissary typo? Thanks for that. I can't believe I never noticed that simple mistake.

      in day 6, if you talk to caster she will gives you Nine Tails. I'm not sure what is it but it says "a good luck charm harvested from caster." you can found it in item.
