This coming Friday marks the debut of two new Godfest Exclusives (GFE), Sericha and Kio , along with a regular 5-Magic Stone Godfest. For the most part, this Godfest should be skipped as it will feature lackluster rates due to the non-Super status and mostly exists to bait players into trying to roll the two new cards.
As a whole, the two new Godfest Exclusives are wonderfully powerful and unique but will have significantly less applications for the average player. Their main strength comes from their Weapon Assist forms as they are able to transfer awakenings that were never available before.
This article will be focusing on the strengths of the two new Godfest Exclusives, Sericha and Kio.

Do not roll in the Godfest
Low rates combined with the eventual return of Monster Hunter and YYH Collab means players should be saving their Magic Stones.
The two new Godfest Exclusives may seem strange at first due to the mediocre value of their evolved forms and some players being unaware of how powerful the Weapon Assists are.
Weapon Assists are cards that will be solely used as inherits as they are able to provide additional awakenings to whichever card they are inherit onto. In the case of these two new cards, they are able to provide one popular Killer awakening (God or Dragon ) which translates into a 3x boost to personal damage against that respective spawn.
For everyday usage, it will have little applications as we tend to have more than enough damage already. Furthermore, their 8-turn cooldown when unskilled leaves a small window of opportunity to use the base skill. This is because their actives are middling overall and players will usually wish to retain their base card’s ability.
Where to use them?
I can foresee these cards having the most merit in a farming or Ranking Dungeon context. This is because both mediums are short enough to prevent charging up of the inherited skill along with the additional damage enabling players to have more team building flexibility.
Both these scenarios prizes speedy clears and being able to make less combos or requiring less subs/actives to kill a specific spawn is invaluable.
For example, using Sericha’s Weapon Assist on Sherias Roots will give him 81x effective damage against God type spawns. This would enable him to delete these spawns with relative ease and lowers the need to have additional damage/burst.
In essence, these Weapon Assists are the most potent way to add damage to any card but their short 8-turn cooldown paired with a middling active makes them challenging to use all the time.
The two new Godfest Exclusives are powerful due to their unique Weapon Assists but are not worth pursing during their debut Godfest. This Godfest is simply a regular 5-Magic Stone affair and will have terribly low rolling rates. Furthermore, Shericha and Kio will be featured again in the future and can be acquired when the rolling rates are stronger.
Let me know what you think about these two new cards along with how you would use them in the comments below.
