Which GFE to Choose for your Weekly Medal Exchange – 10 Great Witches

Introduction

Today marks the third 7-star GFE to be handed out to all players for logging in and this round features all 10 Great Witches. But before I go any further, I want to stress that this particular Medal expires on January 9, 2022.

This is different compared to all the other Medals which have no expiration date so just be mindful of this fact. With that being said, I wish to highlight the notable cards and reasons why you should Monster Exchange for them.

Continuing my trend from the beginning of the month, I will be evaluating all the notable Medal options each time they are released.

Great Witch Exchangeable Medal

[Duration]: 12/20 (Mon), 4:00 – 12/27 (Mon), 3:59 (PST)

 

As a general blanket statement, Saline and Veroah are the two most valuable Witches at this point in time and acquiring your very first copy will be meaningful. On the other hand, if you already have at least 1 copy of every single Witch, acquiring a second Veroah or Saline will still be meaningful as they can be converted into a Weapon that grants Dungeon Boost which is incredibly rare (4 cards total).

Saline

Pros
Cons
  • 1 of 2 cards that grant 1.8x Rank EXP
    • Other being Gintama Ganesha
    • Being able to manipulate your EXP is meaningful
      • Can chain Rank Ups with greater ease
  • Latest LS buff grants 10x ATK for Light
  • EXP Rank Farming may be hard to set up for more difficult dungeons



Veroah

Veroah grants +1.3x Egg Drop rates which can only be used in solo mode. If you own Veroah Kitty or GH Knight , there is technically no need to have Veroah as they all provide the same Leader Skill. Of course, Veroah’s Weapon does provide the rarely found Dungeon Boost .

Pros
Cons
  • 1.3x Egg Drop Rate
    • Only 1 of 3 cards available
      • GH Knight & Veroah Kitty
    • Invaluable if this is the first you own
  • Enables Int Button Farming
    • Most Stamina efficient method for acquiring Event drops
      • See below video for Int Button Farming
    • Only works in solo



Reeche

Pros
Cons
  • Useful awakenings
    • SBR Skill Lock Resist
    • TPAs TPA
    • Bind Immunity
  • Valuable active
    • 5 turns of Damage & Colour Absorb Void
      • Fantastic solution for SR1 final boss
      • Valuable in MD1 in case of Kanna -> Australis
    • Board Unlock
    • Full 6 elemental board changer
    • Would not pursue if missing Veroah or Saline
Zela

Pros
Cons
  • Bind Immune
  • Team HP
  • 4 Wood Rows Wood Row
  • Fantastic Weapon for Nautilus teams
  • Active provides a Shield if not inherited on Nautilus
    • Would not pursue if missing Veroah or Saline
    • Only useful for mono Wood teams
      • Less universal value compared to Reeche
Fasca

Pros
Cons
  • Full Cleric active post-Transform
    • 5 turn CD
    • Movement Time buff
  • Solid personal damage
  • +3 movement time
  • 7×6 LS
  • 0 SB Skill Boost in base form
    • Significant drawback in today’s meta

Conclusion

This week’s GFE Medal has a limited time window to Exchange as it will expire on January 9, 2022. As such, it is in your best interest to use it right away as we do not know when this particular Exchange will be available again.

For the most part, Saline and Veroah are the two best Witches to acquire as they have tremendous long term potential as I feel it will be unlikely GH Powercreeps them.

With that being said, let me know who you plan on Exchanging for in the comments down below.

Happy Puzzling!

  1. Hi Mantastic! I’ve been following your blog for awhile and just wanted to say thank you!! Secondly, I had a quick question. I recently rolled two nautilus in a row and am trying to set up a team for them and don’t have a Zela for a weapon assist. However, I also rolled Christmas Xiahuo Dun and thought Remu might be the perfect leader to pair with either Dante or Lina=Inverse as I don’t have any roulette orb solutions for pretty much any color. I already have Veroah and while I don’t have saline, I’m not really in a place where I need to chain rank ups yet (I’m rank 679 right now and if ranking is more important and I should be looking into it please tell me). So I was wondering if you think remu or zela might be the better investment right now? Thanks again!

    1. I presume you have Veroah/Saline as those are much more important overall long term

      Drawbacks with Remu/Zela is they are less flexible in helping your box but if your Nautilus team is your best one, Zela Hat is meaningful

  2. I have veroa and saline, as well as two zelas and reeches, would it be worth it to go in on nelle as a way to help generate dark orbs for mikage?

    1. Nelle only truly shines in dungeons where you can use the 1 turn Absorb counter. A lack of SB hurts her ability to Transform, along with others

      She’s still good but I feel it would be hard to use as a sub
