Today marks the start of a tremendously exciting event as each week players will receive one (two with PAD Pass) 6* Fest Exchangeable Medal to be used on any 6-star Godfest Exclusive (GFE).
These can be found within the Monster Exchange tab and each week the line up of Godfest Exclusives will rotate. Just be aware that you can use these Fest Exchangeable Medals any week and can even do them all in week 4 if that proves to be the ideal for your Monster Box.
As a general blanket statement, the best course of action is to acquire cards you currently do not have as a brand new card may often fill holes in a given Monster Box along with many of the 6-star GFE holding significant value.
With this in mind, I will list the GFE I feel will provide the most value with the presumption that you own absolutely nothing. Remember, a new card will often outpace a duplicate.

Weekly line up
The following image shows the weekly rotation for the featured GFE but it should also be noted that a card will not show up again once their week has passed. This means trading right away for the cards you need but also trying to plan out who you actually want to acquire.
Who to Exchange for?
The simplest answer is to acquire cards you do not currently own as there is always the possibility they will become significantly stronger in the future. On the other hand, arguments can be made to acquire more Neys or maybe Cottons due to their 5 different Weapon Assists. Just be mindful that these Weapons require difficult to acquire materials and may not always be applicable for newer accounts.
With that being said, I want to highlight the cards I feel have the most value at this point in time.
Raijin (Week 1)
Raijin is a powerful leader, especially when paired with Fasca as this solves the lack of an RCV multiplier along with a bigger board for more consistent activation. Furthermore, Raijin boasts outstanding personal damage and is a fantastic candidate for the VDP Latent along with utilizing double TPA weapons.
Even as a sub, Raijin can be a powerful damage solution for Rainbow teams.
Fujin (Week 1)
Fujin comes with the highly coveted Damage Absorption counter and a 14 turn cooldown for 2 turns of cancellation is fantastic value. You could even use her as an inherit should you be lacking options/cannot use on a given team due to the lower cooldown.
She can also function as a budget pairing for Raijin.
Blue Odin (Week 1)
4 SB , Rows , low base cooldown, Super Blind Resist , and Tape Resist are all featured on Blue Odin and he makes for a fantastic mono Water sub. Just be mindful of his lack of SBR if using other cards who do not have this awakening.
Cotton (Week 2)
Cotton has 5 different Weapon Assists that follow the same template but all have different colour Orb Enhances and orb changers.
Either way, they provide a 75% Damage Reduction shield which is meaningful for World of Carnage 2, RCV buff, an orb changer, FUA , and Full Bind Immunity . As a whole, this is a more situational Weapon Assist and I would not commit to any form unless you know you will gain value from it as the evolution materials are quite expensive.
Dark Kali (Week 3)
Dark Kali has been buffed to have 6 Skill Boosts and Balance typing which broadens her availability on various teams (eg. V Ideal ) while still retaining respectable personal damage and a valuable active.
As a whole, Dark Kali is a solid Rainbow sub, especially when Transforming is required.
Ney (Week 3)
Ney’s Weapon Assist is a tremendously powerful card as it provides a Skill Boost , Rows, Recover Binds , and a valuable active skill. This active will fully clear all Binds and Awoken Binds which is meaningful for Ruler of Hell’s Halls along with the board changer always providing value.
As a whole, the Ney Weapons are fantastic solutions for mono colour teams and the form you pursue will hinge on what you are currently using.
Due to this, it is never a bad idea to acquire more Neys as there will probably be a day when you want a different colour coverage.
Aten (Week 4)
Aten is still a potent Damage Solution due to their 8 Killers and 10 Combo plus 7 Combo awakenings. Assuming a double typing spawn, Aten will be enjoying 90x personal damage which makes them a fantastic candidate for the VDP Latent .
Just remember, what is best for you may often be a card you have never acquired but in the case where you are missing numerous monsters, I would gravitate towards the highlighted ones as I feel they provide more universal value.
Who am I exchanging for?
Yog . I have never rolled a single Yog in my 2,700 or so days playing PAD. After that, it is less important but I will most likely grab additional Neys/Cottons or cards of which I only have a single copy of.
This is an exciting event as will allow players to acquire the best 6-star Godfest Exclusives possible as everyone will enjoy four Exchanges and can double this number if subscribed to the PAD Pass.
Either way, let me know what you think about this event in the comments below along with who you plan on Exchanging for.
