The Halloween event comes as a small surprise as we will be receiving it alongside JP at the appropriate time. This is wonderful as we are able to jump on the hype train as it departs the station along with potentially having a stronger card 2-3 months before we normally would.
With that being said, the Halloween REM follows the trend of most 5-stone Collab and Seasonals: lackluster for almost all of the rolls except for 1-2 at the very top. This heavily promotes the usage of the Monster Exchange system in order to acquire the top prizes instead of vainly wasting Magic Stones to roll terrible low rarity cards.
Due to my own hectic schedule this weekend along with personal/health issues, I am not able to produce a full fledged review but my thoughts are summarized in the following video and written recap.
The general gist of the video is that the new Cotton is an amazing card as she features triple 7 Combo plus double TPA (along with FUA )which makes her have 18x personal damage. Furthermore, her Leader Skill grants her 144x ATK / 68.36% damage reduction when hitting 7 or more Combos along with Light and Dark combos.
This grants her nearly 4x effective HP which means she can naturally tank all the Preemptives in Alt Arena in solo mode when running cards that are HP-inclined.
Active: For 1 turn, increase combo count by 1. Remove orb locks. Change all orbs to Light, Dark & Heal.
LSkill: 4x ATK & reduce damage taken when 7+ combos matched. 3x ATK & reduce damage taken when Light & Dark matched.
Sadly, she is not without fault as she is vulnerable to binds which can be overcome with the Nicol Bolas Weapon Assist. Due to the fact that we are receiving her at the same time as JP, it is uncertain how desirable she will be so my advice would be to hold off on trading in for her until the end of the event.
Other that Halloween Cotton, the rest of the cards are middling at best with the exception of the new Zaerog and newly buffed Halloween Verdandi.
Verdandi gains a new evolution along while also being able to receive Limit Break and Super Awakenings (most notably FUA ) while also providing Time Extend with God typing which may be invaluable for Dark Metatron teams. Healing to full health my seem counter intuitive for Dark Metatron, but having the ability to manipulate your health both ways can be important under certain scenarios or challenging content.
Myne is a new farmable Descend boss who is able to provide a 1 turn cooldown along with beneficial awakenings and stats. This is amazing for players who have never rolled a Tardis and her Team HP can help shore up health concerns for various teams.
Due to the fact that she is farmable leaves no excuse to not have one skilled up and ready should one require her utility.
The Halloween REM is horribly top heavy and it would be advisable to either Free Roll or utilize the Monster Exchange system to acquire Halloween Cotton.
The current Super Godfest gives a players a 19.6% chance to acquire a Godfest Exclusive which can in turn be used in this and future Monster Exchange events. As such, it would be a better place to spend your Magic Stones if any were available.
Let me know what you think about this event in the comments below along with the temptation to trade in for Halloween Cotton.
