Team Building for Blue Sonia

Introduction

Blue Sonia  is the first of what is presumed to be Mega Awoken evolutions for 6-star Godfest Exclusives (GFE). While most meta leaders tend to recycle the same pool of subs, Blue Sonia utlizes a completely different set of cards along with a interesting twist on Tank-oriented teams.

This article will summarize my thoughts and rationale for building a Blue Sonia team. However, team building is more about countering the dungeon mechanics and somewhat removes the notion of “perfect set ups.” As such, I find it best to understand how each sub functions as well as Blue Sonia’s strengths and weaknesses.

Super Godfest Descends

Introduction

North America will be gaining their first ever Super Godfest that will significantly change up the format. For this Godfest, players will be able to spend 6 Magic Stones for a guaranteed 6-star card. However, the available roster will not be exclusive to 6-star base cards and it will be possible to roll evolved 5-stars.

As such, it may not actually be as amazing as you may be led to believe. On the bright side, we are able to view JP’s line up as well as rolling rates and while we may not receive the exact same roster, it should be a general indication as to what we can expect.

The main drawback of this Godfest is that it comes on the heels of two 10-stone events.

Official announcement can be found HERE.

JP Rates

One side effect of being 2-3 months behind JP in terms of content is that we are able to “see into the future” to better plan our game play. This includes various evolutions, Monthly Quests, and various REM events. As such, we are able to see what JP had for their Super Godfest. Continue reading Super Godfest Descends

[Guide] Egg MachineDra Challenge

Introduction

North America has finally gained access to the exciting Egg MachineDra. This event runs from Monday, April 23 until Sunday, April 29 and has two types of rewards: personal and server-wide.

In essence, players enter one of three different difficulties and hope a special Egg Machine invades. These comes in three distinct forms and corresponds to the difficulty entered. However, as these are invades, their appearance is not guaranteed so one may have to attempt the same dungeon numerous times until one spawns.

This article will tell you everything you need to know about the Egg MachineDra Chalenge in order to not miss out on all of the Fantastic rewards available.

Official GHNA post can be found HERE.

Values of dungeon spawns (in Japanese) can be found HERE.

Dungeon difficulty

The Egg MachineDra Challenge will feature three distinct difficulties that allow players across all skill levels to participate. This is important as a brand new player will still be able to enjoy the event and some of the rewards as the bottom difficulty can be cleared by virtually anything.

Cotton Wins the MP Shop Survey! Do’s & Don’ts

Do not nuke your box for MP

Introduction

The Monster Point Shop Survey has come to a wonderful conclusion with Cotton  being the most voted card in NA! This if Fantastic as she is one of the most valuable and flexible cards in the game and there is no real downside in owning duplicates. By comparison, cards like Fujin  and Yog  are powerful, but are less valuable in duplicates or if owning a different Fujin-style active. Thus, Cotton is arguably the best card to have won the survey as players would not be disappointed when rolling more of her in the future.

This article will summarize Cotton’s power along with helping you decide which evolution is best for you and your Monster Box.

Unfortunately, Cotton will cost 1,000,000 MP to purchase which may place her out of reach for the average player and you should not nuke your box for MP. As such, this article will also help you decide who you can safely sell if you are close to the 1 million threshold. Just be aware that Cotton will only be available to purchase for a limited time.

1,000,000 Monster Points

Up to this point, the most expensive card for purchase from the MP shop was 750,000 and while this may seem daunting, older players will have probably acquired well over a million from just login bonuses. As such, there will be many players who are nearing the million MP cutoff and may be interested in purchasing Cotton. Continue reading Cotton Wins the MP Shop Survey! Do’s & Don’ts

Dragonbound & Dragon Caller REM Review and Analysis – April 2018

Introduction

Monday, April 23rd marks the exciting return of the highly coveted Dragonbound & Dragon Caller (DBDC) REM. DBDC is arguably the strongest event in Puzzle and Dragons due to it’s stellar line up and amazing value at the bottom rarity.

Most Seasonal events/Collabs have a few chase cards but tend to have middling value at the bottom. As such, there is often little collateral benefit in rolling those events. However, with DBDC, you actually want many of the Gold eggs which in turn makes it the ideal  place to spend your Magic Stones. If you have absolutely no cards from the REM you should be heavily rolling here as it will grant you cards that cannot be replicated anywhere else.

In addition to three new cards being added to the rolling roster, most of the older cards now gain the ability to Limit Break and gain Super Awakenings or stat improvements for the Weapon Assists.

These changes help ensure the machine stays exciting with the Super Awakenings giving the older cards significantly more value and versatility.

Despite having a wonderful roster, each roll will cost 10 Magic Stones but everything will sell for at least 15,000 Monster Points.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses in the current meta to help you determine if it is worth rolling in.

[PSA] Dragonbound & Dragon Caller REM Returns Monday, April 23

Title is somewhat self explanatory and official post can be found HERE. This is important because Dragonbound & Dragon Caller (DBDC) is arguably the best event in Puzzle and Dragons as it contains incredible value at the 5* rarity and having 2 of each is still reasonable overall. Furthermore, all the older cards gain Limit Breaking and Super Awakenings.

This would be the ideal  event to roll in for the vast majority of players and is worth saving stones for.

I will being work on my review tomorrow and should finish sometime on Sunday as it is a very time consuming process (a good estimate is if it took 1 minute for you to read it, it took an hour to write). If eager for more information, you can read about my older review HERE.

Amen, Mut, & Khonsu Review and Analysis – New 750,000 MP Cards

Introduction

Three new and somewhat exciting cards have been added into the Monster Point shop: Amen , Mut , and Khonsu . All three of them will cost 750,000 Monster Points and will be a sizable investment for the average player. As such, it is wise to make sure you can actually benefit from them and avoid buyer’s remorse. However, all 3 will have a unique Weapon Assist evolution which enables them to contribute awakenings if assisted.

With that being said, GungHo NA will be announcing the winner of the MP Shop Survey will be revealed on Friday, April 20th during their official Twitch stream. The winner will cost 1,000,000 Monster Points and will only be available for a limited time. Thus, it may be best to wait until you see what the winner is as it may influence your purchasing decision.

This article will summarize Amen, Mut, and Khonsu’s viability and how you can make the most out of their presence.

750,000 MP

750,000 Monster Points is still a large amount despite the fact that we have been given large amounts of the past year. As such, many players will only be able to purchase a single card and you wish to gain as much value from this card as possible.

Assist Evolutions
