In a surprise mini patch, GungHo ninja released several new split evolutions for various Godfest Exclusive monsters. This article will help weigh the pros and cons when deciding which path to take.
The idea with a split evolution path is to provide players with more options for customization as well as trying to push them more into a “leader” or”sub” role. You should also be aware that some of these evolutions lose their sub attribute.

Implications for split evolutions
Having a split evolution tree appears to be the norm/trend for Godfest Exclusive cards. For the most part, it is beneficial as you are able to better customize the card to your box needs, but it can also put pressure on players to roll more of what are already the most rare cards in Puzzle and Dragons. However, these new evolutions have breathed new life into the aging Odins while providing Baldin and Balboa more viability so these are positive overall.
Do note that the active skill does not change regardless of which evolution path you choose.
Presently speaking, Baldin was never a strong leader and despite receiving a buff to his leadership potential, the 5 Killer form is still the superior choice in nearly every scenario. Killer awakenings are an incredible way add passive damage to a farming team and being able to deal 9x to most bosses is invaluable.
New evolutions are always exciting and hopefully grant players something new to play and experiment with.
Let me know who you are most excited about and how you plan to use them.
