Fate/EXTRA: The Sixth Selection (Round 6) Rani Route


Unlike the other opponents whose names were announced at the beginning of the round, the identity of this round's Master and Servant were completely concealed to the very last moment. Here's a guide for the sixth week of Rani's route. ­

The Sixth Selection
— Rani Route —

 
Day 1

Midday:
  • School Building 2F:
    Enemy data is announced on the bulletin board but your enemy deleted the names from the board to conceal their identity. Enemy Servant Matrix Level 0.
Evening:
  • Commissary:
    New items available in the shop.

    FORMAL WEAR:
    Sword of Repentance 32,000 PPT
    Angelic Trumpet 29,000 PPT
     
    • School Building 2F:
      Talk to the Male Student in front of the Library, he'll tell you that he saw someone go down the stairs. Talk to Rin Tousaka on the way down.
       
    • School Building 1F:
      Talk to Kotomine and he'll tell you that he saw someone headed toward the Nurse's Office.
       
    • Nurse's Office:
      Talk to Sakura Matou and she'll tell you that she saw someone headed toward the Garden.
       
    • Garden:
      Talk to the Female Student in front of the fountain. She'll tell you that she saw the Harway Prince staring at the fountain earlier. Search the fountain to find the item Lion Lapel Badge.
       
    • School Building 1F:
      Talk to Taiga Fujimura and she'll ask you to find another Magazine.

      Yes ma'am.


      No ma'am
       
      Head to School Building 3F and talk to the Female Student in front of the stairs. She'll agree to give you the Magazine in exchange for a Student Council Badge.
      Arena:
      • Sixth 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 and talked to the Female Student at the School Building 3F earlier.
         
      • Unknown Enemy:
        Your Servant will feel the presence of an unknown enemy following you so you have to run and move forward. As you reach the locked door, the enemy will disappear and you'll be free to explore the map again. Exit the dungeon when you're done.
         
      • Taiga's Request:
        Grab the Student Council Badge before exiting the Arena as you'll need it for tomorrow.

      Day 2

      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 as it won't affect anything. As long as you viewed this conversation, Saber will make a promise that you could ask her anything the next time. I suggest selecting the 3rd option as it is the most hilarious of them all.



        To keep living as I am.


        To keep living in this world.
        To have fun and never work! Whee!

        I'm jealous of her personal theater.


        Whoa, she bankrupt her country?


        ...Is she a pauper...?
         
      • School Building 3F:
        Talk to the Female Student and give her the Student Council Badge to receive Comic Book.
         
      • School Building 3F:
        Talk to Rani to receive some clues about the suspect.
         
      • Nurse's Office:
        Talk to Sakura Matou to receive your weekly supply of healing item, Ether Crystal.
         
      • Library:
        Talk to Leo and show him the Lion Lapel Badge. He'll tell you that it is from his brother and that someone is trying to mislead you.
      Arena:
      • Sixth Chimeric Lunar Sea — First Floor:
        You'll feel the enemy's presence once again so just run forward for now until their presence disappears. The locked door will disappear when you approach it so you can explore the whole map this time around.
         
      • 5th Rare Monster:
        A Nephilim will spawn near the exit once. It is stronger compared to normal enemies so take extra precautions when fighting it.
          
      • First Cipher Key:
        Grab the Trigger Code Lambda before exiting the Arena as you'll need it on Day 7.

      Day 3

      Morning:
      • School Building 1F:
        Conversation with Rani. Enemy Servant Matrix Level 1.
      Midday:
      • Commissary:
        Conversation with Rani. She invites you to eat lunch with her inside the classroom.
         
      • Classroom 2-A:
        Conversation with Rani and Rin about eating lunch together.

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

        Speak with Archer


        Save


        Leave your private room
         
        No choices this time. Archer just talks about NPCs and the Moon Cell.
         
      • Private Room (Caster):
        Special conversation with Caster. Viewing this conversation is required for your Servant to reach Matrix Level E before the end of the game.

        Speak with Caster


        Save


        Leave your private room
         
        The choice below would make her the happiest.

        Tamamo is the only one for me.


        Rin is the only one for me.


        ...I think I should save now.
         
        If you've managed to kill all the Nephilims so far then you've killed 5 of them by now. Re-enter your Private Room and speak with Caster again. This will upgrade her skill Mantra: Bestial Sky to Mantra: Merciful Sky which will increase your magical attacks even more.
         
      • School Building 3F:
        Talk to Rani and apologize. While the 1st option is the more reasonable choice, the 2nd option is more interesting to watch.

        Of course. I promise.


        Sorry. That's not possible.
      Arena:
      • Sixth Chimeric Lunar Sea — First Floor:
        No events for today so grind to your heart's content.
         
      • 6th Rare Monster:
        A Nephilim will spawn near the exit once. It is stronger compared to normal enemies so take extra precautions when fighting it.

      Day 4

      Evening:
      • School Building 3F:
        Conversation with Rani. She'll give you the Scarlet Formal Wear.
         
      • School Building 1F:
        Talk to Taiga Fujimura and give her the Comic Book. She'll ask you again to search for two dishes.

        In for a penny, in for a pound.


        Seriously, I've had it!
      Arena:
      • Sixth 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 earlier.
          
      • Unknown Battle:
        Victory Condition: Survive for 3 turns.
        An effigy will be waiting behind the locked door so make sure that you are fully prepared before activating the switch. It might just be an effigy but its strength matches that of a Sevant so keep your HP high and heal when necessary. Since all 6 moves are hidden, I suggest using an attack Skill every 3 moves. This will prevent the enemy from gaining an extra turn from having 3 successful attacks.



        Enemy Servant Matrix Level 2.
         
      • 7th Rare Monster:
        A Nephilim will spawn north, near an item folder. It is stronger compared to normal enemies so take extra precautions when fighting it.

      Day 5

      Morning:
      • School Building 3F:
        Conversation with Rani. She ask you to meet her in the Nurse's Office later.
      Evening:
      • Nurse's Office:
        Conversation with Rani. She'll give you an Anti-Lancer Firewall Bypass so you could defeat the effigy from yesterday.

      Arena:
      • Sixth Chimeric Lunar Sea — Second Floor:
        You need to defeat the effigy from yesterday and search for the monster that unlocks the Scarlet Formal Wear.


         
      • Unknown Battle:
        Victory Condition: Defeat the enemy. (4,226 HP)
        With Rani's Anti-Lancer Firewall Bypass, this monster should be a piece of cake and should not last more than a turn. The effigy is just as strong as a regular monster now.


         
      • Moby Dick:
        Victory Condition: Defeat Moby Dick. (12,804 HP)
        From the position where the lock used to be, head straight until you enter a hidden passage. You'll find the enemy that you need to defeat in order to use the Scarlet Formal Wear. He's not really that hard but the monster has high HP when compared to regular monsters.

        SKILL LIST:
        Vortex
        Target: Enemy
        Inflicts magic damage and poison on an enemy.
        The effect would only last for 3 turns.
         

         
      • Second Cipher Key:
        Grab the Trigger Code Mu before exiting the Arena as you'll need it on Day 7.
          
      • Taiga's Request:
        Grab the Spring Roll and Kofta Kebab before exiting the Arena as you'll need it for tomorrow.

      Day 6

      Midday:
      • School Building 3F:
        Conversation with Rani. Enemy Servant Matrix Level 3.
      Evening:
      • Rooftop:
        Talk to Rin Tousaka
         
      • School Building 1F:
        Talk to Taiga Fujimura and she'll give you the key item Taiga's Goldfish as a reward. You can view the said item inside your Private Room
      Arena:
      • Sixth Chimeric Lunar Sea — Second Floor:
        No events for today so grind to your heart's content.
         
      • Moby Dick:
        You can fight this guy again this day for some quick EXP.
          
      • 8th Rare Monster:
        A Nephilim will spawn north, near an item folder. It is stronger compared to normal enemies so take extra precautions when fighting it. 

      Day 7

      Evening:
      • Private Room:
        Organize your information about the enemy Servant. 

        Organize your information.


        Save


        Leave your private room
         


        An explosive.
        A rune.


        A spell.
         
        I thought it was a Lancer.


        I guessed it was Caster.


        I realized it was Saber.
         


        Spear of Rainbows and Unicorns.


        Spear of Lucky Charms.
        Spear of Barbaric Impalement.
         
        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:
        The choices below would only affect the conversation before the battle.

        INITIAL CHOICES:
        RESULT A
        Talk to Rin.
        END
        Give Rin the silent treatment.

        RESULT A:
        END
        The Holy Grail War.
        END
        The end of the world?
        RESULT B
        Let's not talk about that stuff.
         
        RESULT B:
        END
        Dreams.
        END
        Love.
        END
        School.
      Coliseum:
      • Servant Battle:
        Victory Condition: Defeat Lancer. (30,039 HP)
        When you see Rin place a Code Cast on the 1st or 3rd move then it means that Lancer is using a Skill during that time. Use GUARD or whatever defensive Skills you have to defend against it, as Hammering Assault could easily inflict Paralysis on you.

        SKILL LIST:
        Red Bough Wheel
        Target: Self
        Absorb enemy MP when using BREAK.
        The effect would only last for 3 turns.
        Hammering Assault
        Target: Enemy
        Inflicts physical damage and paralysis on enemy.
        The effect would only last for 3 turns.
        He will use this Skill on the 1st move. 
        Median Lance
        Target: Enemy
        Inflicts physical damage on an enemy.
        He will use this Skill on the 1st or 3rd move. 
        Shoal of Extremities
        Target: Enemy
        Condition: HP is below 20%.
        Boosts defense and attack; Auto-revive if HP = 0.
        This Skill will revive him with 8% HP.
        This effect which greatly boosts his strength and defense are permanent and would last till the end of battle, unless negated.
        The effect which would revive him will only last until his first death, unless negated.
        NOBLE PHANTASM:
        Spear of Impalement
        Target: Enemy
        Can instantly kill an enemy with low Luck stat.
        This is a very powerful Skill that could instantly kill you at full HP if you don't GUARD against it.
        CODE CAST:
        call_gandor(64);
        Unleashes gandor: Stun chance.
        The effect would only last for 1 move.
        Rin will use this on the same move as Lancer's Hammering Assault.
        call_fortune(128);
        Use gems to injure and lower luck.
        The effect would only last for 3 turns.
        Rin will use this on the same move as Lancer's Median Lance. 
         
        SABER:

         
        ARCHER:

         
        CASTER:


        Don't forget to unleash your own Noble Phantasm to show him who's boss.
         
      • Aftermath:
        After your victory, Rin will ask you if you've found a reason to fight.

        I know what I'm about.


        I'm still not sure.

      End of the Sixth Round
      — Rani Route —

      Rin was the one who told you the rules of the Holy Grail War when you don't know anything about it. She also helped you in defeating Alice's Jabberwock, by providing you with the Malachite required to transmute the Vorpal Blade during the third week. If it weren't for those things she did, you wouldn't have progressed this far and have lost early. Never forget.

      Whoa, I missed the first part of this, I'll have to look back.

      Interesting post. ;)

      Loved the videos. (:

      R.gers said...

      Pretty sweet, although I think I might need to re read all of it again. Or play it by myself. :)

      DWei said...

      Oh wait, you're playing this right now and making the posts as you go? That's pretty hardcore.

      Natural One said...

      It's pretty colorful

      Sakuya said...

      Shouldn't Lancer's pic be up top?

      Lord Phrozen said...

      @convictus
      LOL. Lu Bu and his fashion sense.

      @DWei
      Yes. It's pretty hard considering that I have to finish the game multiple times to figure things out. I've finished it 3 times already and have started my 4th playthrough.

      @Sakuya
      Yeah, but that would be a big spoiler so I moved it down below instead. I can't say that the enemy's identity is unknown and yet put their picture up there. That would be pretty contradictory.

      Hmmm! More of that purple haird girl! I like!

      Great videos I like ;D
      PS: The second video does not work .

      Anonymous said...

      Hello again, this is the same Anon that asked you about fighting Lu Bu. Now that I have passed that, my problem now is, well, Lancer.

      I think this battle would be close to impossible to me. Archer has the lowest luck from the playable servants. So when I battled Lancer, even with my full health and even at guarding stance, Archer will still die.

      What do you think I can do?

      Lord Phrozen said...

      @Anonymous

      For Archer, instead of using GUARD, use his defensive Skill; "7 Stars of Heaven" instead. It works pretty well against Lancer's Noble Phantasm, heck it even have its own special animation when the two clashes.

      Caster's wife said...

      What level do you recommend for Caster? I'm lv 40 with my stats at D C (high)A+ D D.
      On a sidenote thank you so much for writing this walkthrough, Lord Phrozen.

      Anonymous said...

      Im slightly confused... Isn't the rani and Rin route switched over? Saving Rin results in her supporting you making Rani the enemy on the sixth correct correct .-.?

      Why is Rin listed as the boss here?

      Lord Phrozen said...

      @Anonymous
      That information is correct, however this page is for Rani's route which makes Rin the enemy. If you want the guide for Rin's route, go here instead.

      Anonymous said...

      Hey does anybody know if there is any special dialogue between Archer and Lancer if you play this week with Archer as your servant? I know Archer and Lancer have a special rivalry in the fifth Holy Grail War and I wanted to know if there were any perks or references made this week towards that rivalry?

      I think you meant to say steals mp when he successfully guards with red bough wheel.

      if you choose rani as support u r fighting rin and her lancer
      if you choose rin as support u r fighting rani and her berserker.

      Zadion said...

      All of the deaths have moved me to some degree, but this is the first one that really hit me to the point I nearly started to tear up a bit. It's probably largely because I'm already quite familiar with the Fate franchise having finished the F/SN VN (and F/Z), so actually killing Rin myself this time was just surreal.

      Never forget, indeed.
