Star Weaving Fairies REM Review – July 29th, 2021

Introduction

The Star Weaving Fairies make their debut in North America and features a REM that shares a similar format as Sin Dragons/Mystics as the Event cards will be lumped together with other REM monsters.

Furthermore, there is no Monster Exchange option for any of the cards which means players will have to repeatedly pull in order to acquire any of the Event cards. As such, many Magic Stones will need to be spent but I would advise not rolling until we see the rolling rates for a special 9-Magic Stone Super Godfest that goes live on Saturday, July 31st.

With that being said, the Star Weaving Fairies features many powerful cards along with new top-tier leaders who will be able to tackle all content currently available.

Due to continuing wrist pains, I have only done Pros & Cons for each card and did skip over underwhelming Weapons.

Order within each tier is random and not reflective of ranking

Bottom rarity quick summary

The bottom rarity should be the main motivation to roll in an event and the following chart shows all the 6-star Rankings. In total, they comprise only 24.5% of the rolling pool.

As such, this section is somewhat misleading due to the Event cards being lumped together with REM cards.

7 Star base

All of the 7-star cards have significant value in at least one of their forms but the 4.5% total rolling rate is quite abysmal and will often lead to sadness.

While all these cards feature a Weapon Assist, the opportunity cost of not using their Transforming form is far too high as they are arguably some of the best, if not best leaders in the game depending on your sub pool.

Conclusion

The Star Weaving Fairies event features a terribly designed REM as only 24.5% of the cards within are actual Fairies. As such, players will have to slog through countless Pantheon cards (and some GFE) in order to acquire these new cards.

Furthermore, the 9 Magic Stone Super Godfest comes out on Saturday (1 day after Fairy debut) which may feature fantastic rolling rates.

With that being said, I still feel that there is still merits in rolling within the Fairies event (after seeing the 9 MS SGF rates) as acquiring the Event cards is meaningful as many of them are difficult to replicate otherwise.

With that being said, let me know what you think about this event in the comment down below.

Happy Puzzling!

  1. Mantastic i hope all is well and thanks for the amazing analysis on the rem. Small mistake i noticed is that under cons for rosalyn it says you need two fire combos for damage reduction. You only need to match 9 combos with your 7×6 board and you get the damage reduction

  2. I’m glad you’re feeling well enough for more reviews! Looks like I’m rolling this one for sure.

    Can I ask if you have any recommended assists for Rosalyn?

  3. I rolled Natsuru, but I’m having trouble seeing what is so great about her. x3 HP looks impressive, but it’s weak even compared to old leads like Nadeko/Seina not to even mention the other two 7* here or the Submarines. She has impressive healing, but that’s needed to counteract the lack of RCV bonus and damage reduction, so it’s not really an advantage. Old leads like Nadeko already have equal or better healing with her constant x3 RCV from damage reduction and leader skill, and doesn’t require 4 heart orbs to heal.

    She’s not terrible, but she feels more like an A to me. Needing to transform twice is a pretty big disadvantage, and she doesn’t feel as worth is compared to Royal Oak, Nautilus, Rosalyn and Phyllis. Getting 7×6 natively is a pretty big deal, I guess.

    1. You need to pair her with Velkhana who solves her lack of Shield with his 2x HP & 50% Damage Reduction. You also have a high ATK multiplier and 6x HP & 50% Shield along with being able to fully heal every turn

      Furthermore, she can stall due to the match 6-clause

      1. That still doesn’t make her comparable to the other double transform cards. I didn’t say she was bad, just that she’s not as good as the rest of them. I see her somewhere slightly above Seina/Nadeko, but far behind the likes of Rosalyn and Nautilus.

  4. Shuli may not be as useful on a Rosalyn team for her sub attribute, but Red / Green isn’t in a great place and if I actually pull her she will immediately have a home on Seina / All Attribute. When I am playing I still run Seina for a ton of content and all attribute is one place I can’t really make a team and green is a sticking point for that for me anyway. This one plays pretty nicely other than possibly changing blue which isn’t a huge issue on Seina.

  5. Just finished getting all S class sprouts where I hit the 4 spin to get the last two. This is after I lucked out on getting Nautilus from the Godfest today.

    1. What I meant to say is: Daffodil shows the wrong Equip, it‘s the one for Phyllis and the Pros and Cons are therefore also wrong.

      I been dranking lol

  6. Amazing articles as always! And I somehow got all 3 of the 7* fae. Definitely can’t wait to start brewing up teams for them.
