June 16-17 Godfest Featuring Evolved Neys

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 and some 6* GFE may have higher rolling rates. Always check the rolling rates before proceeding.

Introduction

Saturday marks the return of our bi-monthly Godfests and features the Evolved Neys as an added prize. This will bump up the total number of featured 6/7* Godfest Exclusives (GFE) to 25 as opposed to 21 from the previous Godfest.

The additional 4 cards should increase the total rolling rates for the GFE which may make this the strongest non-Super Godfest event. With that being said, the evolved Neys should have a similar rolling rate (speculation) as Zela due to them coming out as 7-stars.

Official announcement can be found HERE.

Godfest overview

Unlike Godfests of the past, only some 6/7* GFE will be featured. If they are listed as unavailable, you will be unable to roll them during the event.

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 of previous Godfests, 6* GFE will have 0.6% hit rate whereas the 7* had 0.5%. With that being said, some GFE may feature an increased rate and you simply have to check the displayed rolling rates each time.

 Zela – S

Reposting from last time

Zela is the first 7* GFE to be released and is possibly setting an unhealthy prescedent moving forward. This is because she is incredibly powerful along with being even harder to roll than her 6* cousins.

We have seen the trend of GungHo heavily pushing Powercreep away from Farmables and Pantheon cards which can make newer content more restrictive and less accessible overall. Thus, with the introduction of Zela (and more 7* GFE in JP), we may be entering a period where the top tier prizes are even more limited.

Regardless, Zela is an incredible card to own and will more than likely be a blessing for most Monster Boxes.

Pros
Cons
  • Two distinct forms
    • Choose either VDP  or 7c 45
    • 7c is almost always better
  • 1,100 weighted stats
  • Amazing active skill
    • Makes hearts and wood orbs
    • +2 combo count
    • Removes locked orbs
  • Bind immune
  • Can have three 7c and FUA 
  • Animated
  • Modest, albeit orb hungry leader skill
  • Wood is a less desirable colour
  • One SB Skill Boost
  • Longish base CD

Despite having two distinct forms, her triple 7 Combo 45 with the Follow Up Attack  is almost always the better form. This is because she offers explosive damage along with the highly desirable FUA. This enables her to function amazingly well on any combo or wood team but her main drawback is the fact that she is Wood.

Presently speaking, the top leaders are Edward , Yusuke , and Diablos . All three leaders have flexible team building requirements, but Zela cannot be used on Yusuke teams due to no Light attribute (and non-synergistic active).

With that being said, one can still use Zela on Edward and Diablos teams, but she is less desirable on Edward due to no Light (cannot benefit from his base active) along with her board changer being unlikely to help the team overall.

Thus, Zela would be relegated to Diablos teams which is still perfectly acceptable and her board changer is helpful there. While other combo teams can utilize her, they tend to be less powerful overall. Regardless, Zela will be a phenonminal sub provided the team can capitalize on her strengths.

On the other hand, her Void Damage Penetration  form should only be pursued if you are truly desperate for this type of awakening. This is because she comes with no natural offensive awakenings and her Super Follow Up Attack  is generally inferior to a regular FUA.

As a leader, Zela is stronger in her 7c form as it enables players to better take advantage of her explosive damage, even if unable to hit 2 or 3 wood combos. The fact that both leaders will have a personal 8x damage is meaningful and helps reduce the need to have wood orbs present. With that being said, she is still not the best leader due her low multiplier with only a single Wood combo despite having a wonderful passive damage reduction.

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 almost always keep the first copy of anything you roll

Overall, this Godfest has a reasonable line up but is missing quite a few top prize cards. Perhaps the inclusion of the Neys will improve the overall rolling rate, but it may not be worthwhile overall.

At this point there are no scheduled Collabs/Special Events coming to NA outside of the the off chance we get the recently announced Magic the Gather that JP will be having. Regardless, it may be wise to pass on this Godfest unless the rolling rates are significantly higher than anticipated (0.6% for 6* and 0.5% for 7*).

GFE Trading Post

After the excitement of the Yu Yu Hakusho Collab and now Kenshin Collab, many players may be in need of restocking back up on 6* GFE. Sadly, gunning purely for 6* GFE was best done during the previous Super Godfest where the chances of rolling a 6* GFE were significantly higher.

Regardless, the Trading Post/Monster Exchange System makes it highly undesirable to actually sell any 6* GFE as they can instead be traded in for a desirable/rare card.

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 around 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.

Rolling rates may change each Godfest so always double check the line up beforehand.

Featured Cards

The Rare Egg Machine will continuously rotate various Pantheon and former 5* GFE cards that will overlap with Godfests. The following is not an exhaustive list, but only highlighting the notable cards being featured alongside. regardless, always check the official line up in game for confirmation of what is available.

Collabs vs Godfests

Prior to the reveal, it was quite risky to roll in Collabs as they often left players more disappointed than anything else. However, after seeing various Collab rolling rates, one has 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.

On the bright side, we are now able to utilize the Monster Exchange System to trade in for a desirable card. This was most prominent for acquiring Yusuke  as players did not actually have to roll in it and could simply exchange four 6* GFE/YYH Collab cards.

Sadly, Collabs are starting to shift towards the strongest cards in the game which is unfortunate for newer players as there is simply not enough Magic Stones to go around.

As a result, 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

The upcoming Godfest is average overall but the inclusion of evolved Neys may help boost the rates of acquiring a 6/7* GFE. With that being said, may not be the best time to roll unless one is missing the majority of the featured cards. There is speculation that NA will either have a Super Godfest (stronger GFE rates) or Personal/Magic The Gathering Collabs which are all stronger events overall. Of course, this is all speculation and nothing is confirmed.

Let me know what you think about this event in the comments below along with how much you plan on rolling.

Happy Puzzling!

  1. Hey Mantastic,
    I took a decent break from playing PAD cuz I was starting to get burnt out. I was wondering if you could do a article on the top leaders right now and what makes them valuable. Since I’ve started back up again I seem to be lacking decent leaders.
    Still watch the videos even though I took a break. Keep up the awesome work. Your my go to for PAD knowledge.
    Thank You

  2. the neys had a combined rate of a regular gfe on jp if i recall correctly. the sole benefit of them appearing in the different variation was to ease up on the evo requirement.

  3. rolled, idk…like 10 times. The best I got was Meimei (at least something green for my box). Was really stupid. Decided to farm 5 stones in hope of at least 1 GFE. Got Zela. wow!
    She is like a superstar for my Kaede now.

  4. This was a surpisingly good GodFest for me. (first in a long time.)

    I pulled 2 Green Neys, Green Ruel, Sakuya, Solais, Macha, Enkidu, and Dantalion.

    Any suggestions on a good Dantalion team? (Mainly just to try something new)

    1. Congrats on your good fortune!

      As for Dantalion, you want to have Fire, Dark, and Heart orb makers to reliably proc his leader skill. With that being said, I would try to have heart orbs flowing as much as possible as that is his source of damage reduction

  5. Yeah I tried for a zela or better with the free stones and the June dungeon and other stones I saved. Got a Luge, Endiku, two tsubakis and two baals..
