Autumn Equinox Godfest Review and Analysis

Godfest basics

When making the decision to roll or save your magic stones, you need to determine if the featured pantheons can benefit or complement 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 Popular Leader’s and their Full Sub List Post which is in the process of being updated. 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 any of the Monster Point cards, please refer to my updated Tier List for help and advice.

I also encourage you to visit my discord Discord server as it is full of knowledgeable and friendly people.

Introduction

The Autumn Equinox Godfest features 6x rates for Pantheon and GFE cards along with an overlapping guaranteed 5-star Carnival. This means that every roll will result in a gold or diamond egg; however, you can still acquire evolved forms of silver, but this is a meaningful boost overall.

In addition, all rolls will come with +50 to a random stat. If you wish to read more about Ney, please refer to my full review HERE.

On a sidenote, I am horribly swamped in real life due to packing and moving in a few weeks along with trying to find a new place to live so this article will be somewhat brief.

Ranking the cards – Pantheons & GFE

These rankings I assign cards are my own and take into consideration the card’s value as a leader, sub, inherit, and possibly any niche role they fulfill. In order to rank in the highest tier, the card has to excel in their respective role and cannot feasibly be replaced by anyone else. This can also be thought of as a Best in Slot card and tends to have applications on the top tier teams.

Despite my best to remain neutral, there is always the potential for bias and you need to be able to examine a card and determine if it can benefit your unique Monster Box and situation.

Legend guide

Symbols condense the time spent processing information and here is a brief explanation for each one I will use:

S

The best of the best. These cards compromise a best in slot role on top tier teams. They are largely irreplaceable and tend to offer something unique that cannot be easily replicated. This mostly exists to showcase the jump in power between the rest of the cards available.


A

All of the cards in this tier bring tremendous value to a variety of teams as either leaders, subs, or inherits that are challenging to mimic elsewhere. For example, Green Odin 3390 remains one of the strongest bind clears and only card that can remove 5 turns of awoken skill binds (outside of Odin Dragon 3264). It may not be paramount to your success, but is well worth owning overall.


B

This category indicates cards that have value, but are not as widely used/irreplaceable as the above tier(s). 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.


C

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. A great example of this is Red Odin 3392 who is a premiere button farming option, but with the addition of Red Tamazo 3162, players at least have a “farmable” poison inherit along with the future implementation of Descend inherits.


D

This category indicates the bottom of the Puzzle and Dragons barrel. These cards tend to have almost minimal 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.

This arrow indicates if a card has moved up since the last posting/tier list. The category/bracket they are placed in will be their new home and each arrow will show how many brackets they moved up (eg. 2 will indicate they climbed up two rankings).

This takes into consideration the the + and – within tiers.


arrow-down-red-300px

This arrow indicates if a card has moved down since the last posting/tier list. The category they are placed in will be their new home and each arrow will show how many brackets they moved down (eg. 2 will indicate they were demoted down by two rankings).

This takes into consideration the the + and – within tiers.


+

A + indicates that these cards are relatively stronger than the other cards in that respective tier bracket and are trying to move up and may do so if a minor buff or new card/evo is released that can full capitalize on their strengths.


No plus/minus

No plus/minus indicates that the card is in the middle of their respective tier bracket.


A – indicates that this card is relatively weaker than the others in their respective tier bracket and are on the cusp of being demoted.

New Godfest Exclusive overview

Ney  is a new 6-star GFE who features the first ever 5-evolution path that results in a uniquely powerful card who can be utilized by every single player. I go into more detail about Ney in my full review HERE.

Pantheon tier list

Due to the way that Powercreep works and how GungHo does not actually nerf cards, I may have to do a soft reset in a few months where I demote everything but the very top down 1 ranking and then readjust if things have become stronger. Presently, I only demote cards if I have overvalued them or they have completely fallen out of the meta. However, this is not the case for this list’s ranking but may be something I do in the future.

As with any tier list, you should take these rankings with a grain of salt as individual cards may have more or less value for your particular monster box.

Ordering withing each bracket is random.

Notable changes

None at this point in time. This could also be due to a lack of time on my end.

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.

This is an updated list compared to last time to reflect the new evolutions that have been announced/released in JP. Within each tier, the cards are in no particular order and is simply how they appear in my icons master list or after reshuffling.

Do note I have not had time to review the new Sherias/Sherias Roots evolutions so they may shift soon.

Notable changes

Amenominakanushi  has a name I will have no hope of pronouncing but I can no longer deny his viability. Ameno has always had the potential to clear end game content, but row teams have been on the decline and it was often challenging finding a balance between enough RCV and usable subs. However, with the introduction of the box  awakening, Ameno is able to seemlessly trigger the 9 orb match while activating his full leader skill. You were already sacrificing combos to form the box and does not harm his potential. Furthermore, light has amazing pixel options including Cloud, Lightning, and Yuna.

As a result, Ameno is a bind immune, damage scaling leader who can fully capitalize on the box awakening.

Sherias Roots Sherias Roots and Typhon Typhon are both receiving new and exciting split evolutions which will dramatically elevate their value. I will look at them in more detail at a future date.

Finally, Dark Kali Dark Kali has finally been demoted due to the decline of viability of Ra Dragon 3265. This is not to say that Ra Dragon is a poor leader, it is just that he has to work so much harder to achieve a similar level of prowess as other meta teams.

Ronove Ronove really cannot keep abreast with the current meta leads due to a vulnerability to binds, rainbow activation, and heart cross mechanic.

This list mostly takes into consideration the current state in NA/EU as I have not had enough time to properly evaluate them due to a lack of time.

Pretty solid days overall.

Unique Carnival

The Autumn Equinox Godfest features a special 5-star guaranteed Carnival. This means that every single pull will result in 5-star rarity. However, you can still acquire an evolved silver egg but this should reduce the amount of sadness overall.

Overall, I feel that both days are relatively equal in value and it is mostly deciding which will better serve your needs.

Conclusion

The Autumn Equinox Godfest features powerful Pantheons and Godfest Exclusives at 6x rates. This is further strengthened by the fact that all rolls will result in a gold egg or higher.

Let me know what you think about the this Godfest and whether or not you are planning on rolling.

Happy Puzzling!

  1. I rolled a handful of times, managed to get my first Ruel and Moto, which is awesome, but also Ameno, which I’ve been chasing for a while, so that was super awesome. Makes up a -little- for some of the past few GFs, which were crap for me.

      1. I like the A3 possibilities, as it’s a best fit with my light cards that negate all the bullcrap mechanics in the dungeon 🙂 Pix Lightning, Momiji, and inherited Hiko all play nice on the team. I picked up Xiu Min on my alt account to pair with my Ameno, which works okay for stuff as well.

  2. Rolled some op stuff, but not able to use it to their full potential. Rolled my 2nd Odin (maybe for this new evo in some months?), Ishida (great, but I have no home for green rows), 2nd Akechi (cool, somehow) and…

    Looks like a huge improvement for my Glavenus, which was a nice thing for my Firefox and esp. My combo teams. I think I am missing some subs for her own team.

    Now I am wat Ing for Saria Evos. Her FUA will make my Amenominakanushi spectacular. 😀

    1. Ronia will be very important as assistance card for Fire row leads in the future (if the meta switches back).
      Great board and 2 rows awoken will be transfered ( not yet in NA version).

  4. Figured the overlapping carnival would be a good time to finally set up an alt account. Couple garbage rolls, but I also got Facet/Cthuga/Meimei.

    Not a bad start to a new account.
