When making the decision to roll or save your magic stones, you need to determine if the featured pantheons can benefit or compliment your teams. Chasing for one specific monster is unwise as you will most likely be disappointed and should ideally have Godfests that overlap with many target cards. Remember all monsters that come out of the REM will qualify for Skill Inheritance so do not be too hasty when selling dupes. For a more detailed team building help, please refer to my full list Popular Leader’s and their Full Sub List Post. Lastly, to find more information about a specific pantheon or monster, refer to my Master List to better refine your search. If you are considering to purchase a Four Gentlemen card, please read my Review and Comparison HERE.
This is a bad Godfest. If I ended my review here, it would technically be informative, but probably not very helpful as it does not explain why. As such, I wish to experiment with a new addition to Godfests by creating a tier/hierarchy list for the Godfest Exclusives. I have tended to stay away from ranking cards as it is subjective and simply duplicating/reposting JP leader tier lists is redundant. Thus, I will be creating a quick reference chart to help categorize the GFE from all points of view: leader, sub, inherit, and niche roles. Remember, this is a subjective list and your opinions may differ so I encourage you to voice your opinions in a constructive manner.

The actual Godfest
This Godfest will feature all the Godfest Exclusive (GFE) cards at a mere 4x rates and no pantheon cards alongside. 4x may have been amazing a year ago, but it is my understanding that with the numerous additional cards in the REM, the actual rate of rolling a particular card has gone down. Thus, the 4x rates is simply to keep abreast with the older 3x rates.
The Midnight Gala will be occurring along with all GFE appearing in their evolved form at level 50 as well as +50 to a random stat. Coming out evolved may drive some players crazy as it will result in a void in their monster book.
My advice is to not roll and simply save stones and recover from the Heroine REM.
GFE tier list
I feel that having a tier list that visually ranks the various GFE against each other when looking at their viability as a leader, sub, assist, or niche role is beneficial. Being able to cover numerous aspects will result in a higher placing along with their value in rolling dupes. This will attempt to rate these cards from a general box point of view and your individual situation will dictate just how important each card is.
Generally speaking, if a this is your first time acquiring a GFE, it will have at least some value and you should never sell a non-duplicate card.
As this is my first time doing this, constructive feedback is appreciated and I will also do my best to explain/justify my placements of each card down below. Within each tier, the cards are in no particular order outside of the highest tier and is simply how they appear in my icons master list.
Finally, this list takes into consideration all the cards in JP that we will receive (such as the future MP dragon evos).
GFE Tier List – February 17/2017
Tier explanations and justifications
Presently speaking, Kanna, Dark Kali, and Kaede comprise the three strongest GFE cards in descending order. It may be surprising to state that Kanna is the strongest card, but that is because she has value on numerous top tier teams: Myr , Ra Dragon , and Dark Athena . Her incredible array of TPA awakenings and bind immunity in her light form make her crucial to maximizing your potential. By comparison, Dark Kali is primarily used on Ra Dragon teams (requires 2, but possibly more for inheritance protection). Finally, Kaede is beginning to decline as a leader due to the excessive orb hungry nature of her team along with the lower viability of systems in end game content as you must dedicate 4/6 cards to the base active. Thankfully, Kaede is still a key sub on Ronove teams.
The main purpose of the triple check mark category was to segregate the significantly stronger GFE cards. However, all of these featured cards bring tremendous value to a variety of teams as either leaders, subs, or inherits that are challenging to replicate else where. For example, Green Odin remains one of the strongest bind clears and only card that can remove 5 turns of awoken skill binds. On the other hand, Australis may have varying value, but he is a wonderful Awoken Liu Bei button farming alternative and one of the strongest wood inherits.
This category indicates cards that have value, but are not as widely used/irreplaceable as the above tier. While they may make your life easier and still bring an additional layer of power to your team, they are far from necessary. With that being said, some of these cards could hold the key to your own teams as everyone has different tools to work with.
Cards in the question mark category tend to be those that are a luxury and are often not widely used for the average player. With that being said, they may bring niche value to your monster box or provide an additional option to use. The only potential outlier I can think of is Red Odin who is a premiere button farming option, but with the addition of Red Tamazo , players at least have a “farmable” poison inherit.
This category indicates the bottom of the GFE barrel. These cards tend to have almost no value as they simply do not fit in the current meta and are badly in need of a buff or new evolution to give them viability. With that being said, you should still keep them as they technically have the most potential for improvement.
I strongly caution against rolling in this Godfest as there is simply not enough value with only 4x GFE rates.
On the other hand, I hope the addition of my debut GFE Tier list is helpful and I do plan to include it (updating accordingly) alongside all future Godfest posts to help you better decide which days to roll.
Let me know what you think of the rankings and will do my best to address all of your comments.
