March 17-18 Godfest Overview

 Godfest Basics

The format for Godfests has been dramatically changed through their REM Renewal along with Full Disclosure of Rolling Rates. These changes dramatically improve your chances of rolling a specific card as the pool of available monsters is significantly smaller as only a portion of the all possible monsters are featured at a given time. This is great news for players as you are better able to focus your Magic Stones on key cards.

Godfests no longer advertise “rate increases” and instead Highlighted specific cards along with 6* Godfest Exclusives being available. As such, these events are the best time to roll the REM as the current meta is heavily favouring these rare and elusive monsters.

Rolling rates may change or vary with each Godfest event.

Introduction

The upcoming Godfest begins on March 17th and runs until March 18th and will once again feature 20 6-star GFE. This current line up is reasonable overall but just remember that you only have to wait around 2 weeks for another Godfest to come back.

With that being said, there is some speculation that the Valentine’s Day REM will make a return soon if we judge from the cooking contest GungHo NA announced, but just bear in mind that it could be another month or two away.

As with any Godfest, the decision of whether to roll or not will be dependent on your own Monster Box and individual needs.

Godfest overview

Unlike Godfests of the past, only some 6* GFE will be featured. If they are listed as unavailable, you will be unable to roll them during the event.

March 17 – 18 Godfest
6* GFE available

   2991   Scheat  
  Ult Kaede 3414 3268 3416    

6* GFE not available

3236 3391 3392  3370  3233   

You ideally wish to line up a Godfest that overlaps with several key targets to improve your overall chances of success. Thus, it may be advantageous to wait for a more opportune Godfest if the current one does not feature enough key targets.

Based on the revealed rolling rates, 6* GFE will have 0.6% hit rate each for a total of (0.6*20) 12% for any 6* GFE. This also means that there is a 0.6% chance to acquire one of the two new cards released.

Amusingly. Ameno  has not been featured for the third time in a row while Ilm 3236, Blue Odin 3391, Red Odin 3392, and Fenrir Viz  are missing once again.

GFE Tier list

This list reflects a card’s overall usage/viability in the current meta as well as moving forward. Cards are in no particular order within each tier.

Use these rankings as a starting point and not as absolute truth. Highly valued cards only have merit if you have a team to support them so they are somewhat subjective to your own Monster Box.

Regardless of card’s ranking, you should always keep the first copy of anything you roll

Compared to the last Godfest event, this one has a stronger overall line up. However, rankings and value of cards are somewhat subjective and should use this as a starting point

Notable changes
 Dark Metatron A -> B

Dark Metatron continues to ride the wave of Powercreep and is now being demoted due to the fact that her viability as a leader is becoming outclassed by numerous other options. She is still able to clear plenty of content, but the HP-clause is sometimes problematic to navigate along with having her damage somewhat capped due to no Skyfalls.

Like Kushinadahime , having no Skyfalls means you do have perfect damage control, but in this day and age with Fujin-style 3414 actives, FUA , and Boxes , the need to actually plan out your output is at an all time low. Thus, you are losing out on the chance at increased damage overall.

Just because Dark Metatron and Kushinadahime are less ideal compared to their debut, it does not mean they are poor leaders, it just means that they will struggle to clear newer content compared to other options.

 

Pantheon/5* GFE Highlights

With the presence of a Godfest, only 6* GFE are Highlighted. As a result, the 6* Pantheon cards now lose their Highlighted rates and drop down to 0.64% chance to roll which makes them on par with 6* GFE.

This creates an interesting conundrum, during non-Godfest events, the chances of you rolling a 6* Pantheon card are significantly higher but you cannot acquire the GFE.

With this in mind, it is still best to roll in Godfest events as the 6* GFE tend to be stronger overall and you can at least still roll a 6* Pantheon card at the same time.

Collabs vs Godfests

Prior to the reveal, it was quite risky to roll in Collabs as they often left players more dissapointed than anything else. However, after seeing the Monster Hunter rolling rates, you have a pretty solid chance at acquiring a 7*+ card. Of course you will have to weigh the pros and cons along with examining the lowest rarity rolls from the Collab.

One interesting point is that Macha has a 0.6% rate while the top prizes in Monster Hunter had 2% and 5.22% for 6*. If that Collab rate carries over to the Dragonbound & Dragon Caller event, you would have around a 5% chance of rolling Li for the Leader Swap active.

With that being said, Collabs are starting to shift towards the strongest cards in the game. This is unfortunate for newer players as there is simply not enough Magic Stones to go around. This mostly comes on the heels of the revamped Heroine Event along with Dragon Bound & Dragon Caller and Monster Hunter being the top 3 that NA has received.

Thus, it has become more valuable for veteran player to roll in Collabs due to the fact that it offers cards you cannot otherwise replicate. On the other hand, newer players will tend to find more merit in regular Godfests as they need to round out their Monster Box before chasing more niche cards.

Conclusion

This upcoming Godfest features a reasonable roster over 6-star GFE cards and can be worth pursuing if you are missing most of the highlighted cards. However, we should be receiving Valentine’s Day REM at some point (I do not know the exact date) so there may be some competition for your Magic Stones.

The new format of Godfests will require more patience overall since only a few cards will be featured at a given time. While this enables you to better snipe a key card, it also means you have to make peace with hoarding stones until the cards you truly want are featured.

Godfests remove the Highlighted status of Pantheon cards to make space for the 6* GFE and while this can be frustrating, Godfests are still the best time to roll the REM.

Let me know what you think about this Godfest and any suggestions to formatting future Godfest posts in the comments below.

Happy Puzzling!

  1. I think you should start to include which pantheons are available during the godfest. That could influence the decision whether to roll or not for some. E.g. right now Nohime, Inahime, Oichi, Anubis, Ra, Kushinadahime among others are not available in the REM at all.

  2. I think you should promote raijin a bit, because of the new evo coming out to NA in about 2 months. Ik that it won’t be alot better, but imo its better than alot of other GFE.

  3. So I got Skuld from the free roll they gave us, but I was wondering, why is she S tier? She doesn’t seem to be THAT much better than the other Norns (which I’m happy to say I’ve now collected all three of them)

  4. I agree that Raijin should move up soon… her new evolutions seems useful enough and the leader skill is decent.

    And it’s also riderfest again for me… rolling terribly, as usual.

  5. So sad to see DMeta losing that much ground. She was my first GodFest roll from the Rare Egg machine, 6th monster in my box, and I couldn’t even run her (without subs) until I built up my rank! She saw me through Tier 7 and beyond and only stopped being my primary lead when DAthena came along.

    1. Yeah I also rolled her pretty early but lacked Attackers (back with her old LS)

      She can still clear content, but the amount of effort required along with having so many different options for both a traditional leader and no skyfall farming has really hurt her

  6. Got napoleon on my alt, is he good enough paired with ilmina? This ilmina have been sitting idle doing nothing since when i first pulled her 😓
