Sub Carnival is a Trap

Introduction

The Sub Carnival is a promoted event by GHNA and is absolutely terrifying. Players should stay as far away as possible from this event as it features a horrible roster of what are the “top 15 subs.”

This article will try and explain the featured list along with providing insight on potential high-profile events that could come to North America.

Regardless of whether or not you read the entire article, DO NOT ROLL IN SUB CARNIVAL.

This is not a Godfest

The Sub Carnival is not a Godfest and this alone should be a large red flag as players will not be able to roll any 6/7-star Godfest Exclusives.

Generally speaking, 6/7-star Godfest Exclusives are some of the strongest cards available and the 6-star ones have become invaluable as trade fodder via the Monster Exchange. Players are able to trade in four 6-star GFE for a single Collab card (5-stone machine) and this removes the need to actually roll in the event. As such, it is highly advantageous to try and stock up on these cards as it will enable one to acquire a top tier monster. Continue reading Sub Carnival is a Trap

June Bride REM Review and Analysis – August 2018

Introduction

I once told a girl I wanted to get married in June when in fact I really meant August. As such, you would not believe my surprise when I found myself single in August and had no one to give my bouquet to. Regardless, the August June Bride REM comes at an awkward time due to the recent passing of a Super Godfest.

The Super Godfest has left most players without any Magic Stones and may be challenging to justify rolling here as it would be more for Pretty Girls as opposed to progression value. On the bright side, three of the 4-star cards have been removed from the REM lineup.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses to provide a better picture of what to expect in this event.

Organizing My Monster Box

Introduction

Numerous Quality of Life changes have occurred since my previous article detailing the Monster Box Folder System. As such, I wish to review how I now sort my Monster Box now that we have the Plus Bank, Evolution Gems, and various material stacking.

While you may have your own methods for sorting your Monster Box, it does not hurt to see how other players go about this. There is no “correct” way to manage your Box, but being exposed to new ideas may be of value.

Monster Box Folders

The default Monster Box has the folders turned off and it is highly advisable to turn them on right away. The Folders provide additional levels of customization and can greatly ease in finding cards within.

To turn Folders on simply follow these steps: Continue reading Organizing My Monster Box

[PSA] August Quests – Rainbow Medals

Introduction

The August Monthly Quests are the first inception of a new in game currency: the Rainbow Event Medal :eventmedal:. These Medals differ from those acquired via Ganesha’s Treasure Trove and cannot be acquire via trading in the Bronze/Silver/Gold Medals.

As such, these Rainbow Event Medals should be cherished as JP has only given out a limited amount (9) and will be used for trading in via the Monster Exchange system.

Rainbow Event Medals

Evolution Gems

The JP server is several months ahead of North America and they have only received 9 Rainbow Event Medals thus far; however, the two gained from the August Quests will not be sufficient to purchase anything of value (along with not being available).

Super Godfest is Coming to North America!

Introduction

Super Godfest is making a triumphant return to Puzzle and Dragons and will also feature several seasonal cards to help spice things up. As a whole, a Super Godfest is the best time to roll the Rare Egg Machine as it has the highest total chance of rolling a 6/7* GFE. These cards have become invaluable as both powerful monsters and fodder for trading in via the Monster Exchange system.

This article will further elaborate why a Super Godfest is a wonderful time to spend your Magic Stones along with the anticipated rolling rates.

The Super Godfest occurs for 24 hours
7/31 (Tue), 8:00 PM – 8/1 (Wed), 7:59 PM (UTC-8)

Super Godfest vs Godfest

The Rare Egg Machine Renewal has dramatically changed how Godfests function and will no longer feature all of the 6/7* GFE each time. As a result, the overall rolling rates for any of these cards will naturally be lower as several cards are missing. Continue reading Super Godfest is Coming to North America!
