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.

Persona Collab REM Review and Analysis – July 2018

Introduction

The Persona Collab is finally making its way to North America and would have been more exciting if we did not already have Magic: The Gathering Collab. This is because Magic: The Gathering largely sidelined many of the Persona Cards and lowers their overall value as we now have alternatives for some of their abilities.

While this may sound depressing, it also means one can save their Magic Stones for a more beneficial event (large speculation for a Super Godfest with the debut of Richie ). With that being said, the Persona Collab comes with powerful farmable Weapon Assists and cards that are worth pursuing. Full article on farmable options can be found HERE.

This article will summarize all the REM cards available in the Persona Collab by examining their strengths, weaknesses, and where one can effectively utilize them.

Magic: The Gathering REM Review and Analysis – June 2018

Introduction

Magic: The Gathering Collab is coming to North America this Monday through a synchronized release with the JP Server. This is incredibly exciting as North American players are able to board the hype train as it departs the station instead of several months later when potentially newer and flashier things have been announced in JP.

Furthermore, this Collab has a massive following and many players may be rolling for both their potency and for nostalgia reasons. As a whole, this event is quite solid as all of the 6=star cards have merit and value unlike most other 5-stone machines of the past. As such, it may be harder to trade them in via Monster Exchange as they all offer something valuable through both their regular evolution and Weapon Assist form.

Unfortunately, the Magic: The Gathering has less value at the 5-star rarity which is where approximately 90% of the rolls will be found (basing off the notion that 6-star cards tend to be around 2.5% each). As such, it may be challenging to fully justify rolling and players may end up only Monster Exchanging for a few select cards.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses to give you a better idea of whether or not it is worth spending your Magic Stones in this event.

Due to the power of all the 6-stars in the event, one should keep their first copy of each one and only consider trading if owning duplicates and interested in their Weapon Assist evolution.

Rurouni Kenshin REM Review and Analysis – June 2018

Introduction

The Rurouni Kenshin REM makes a triumphant return after a prolonged absence from Puzzle and Dragons. With this inception, the REM gains 3 new cards along with the ability to Limit Break and grant Super Awakenings to the 6-star cards. Furthermore, players will have the option of using the Monster Exchange System to trade in for all of the 6* cards.

As a whole, the Rurouni Kenshin Collab is reasonable overall but may not be worth heavily rolling for the average player. This is not because the cards are weak, but the top prizes are more niche/geared towards players who are interested in farming more efficiently. In addition, there is hope/speculation that NA will gain Persona or Magic the Gather Collabs and they may have more potential overall.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses to give you a better idea of whether or not it is worth spending your Magic Stones here.

PAD Academy REM Review and Analysis – June 2018

Introduction

The PAD Acedemy REM returns this Monday to North America. The event comes with 5 new characters, Limit Break/Super Awakenings for older cards, and the option to utilize the Monster Exchange System to acquire the 8-star cards.

All of this translates into an interesting event; however, the cards themselves are nothing special and after numerous lucrative events, it may be challenging to justify spending your Magic Stones here.

Unfortunately, many of the PAD Academy cards are reskins of existing (and lackluster) REM cards along with the 5 and 6-stars being horribly outdated.

On the bright side, there will be no more 4-star cards coming out of the Event REM and each roll will be festively dressed to fulfill all your School Boy/Girl fantasies.

Monster Exchanging for Yusuke

Introduction

Monday marks the debut of the Yu Yu Hakusho Collab along with the first introduction of cards available in the Event Tab for the Monster Exchange.

Through this event tab, players will be able to trade in variuos dungeon drops for particular skill up materials but the main focus will be on exchanging four 6* GFE/6* YYH Collab cards for Yusuke .

Overall, Yusuke is an incredible card to own as both a sub and leader which makes him a highly desirable monster to own. As such, many players will be wanting to use the Trading Post to acquire Yusuke without heavily rolling in the Collab itself.

This article will explain why Yusuke is powerful along with how to use the Monster Exchange efficiently as well as trade-in recommendations.

For a full review of the Yu Yu Hakusho Collab, please refer to my previous post HERE.

Yu Yu Hakusho Collab REM Review and Analysis – May 2018

Introduction

This coming Monday will feature the debut of the Yu Yu Hakusho Collab and one of the most powerful leaders available in the game, Yusuke .

This Collab REM features only 5 and 6-star cards with rates mirroring Full Metal Alchemist along with a similar distribution of value as Yusuke soars above the competition. Thankfully, the Monster Exchange system will grant players the chance to trade in four 6* GFE/Yu Yu Collab cards for Yusuke. This process will save countless Magic Stones and sets an exciting precedent moving forward.

One main drawback of the Yu Yu Hakusho Collab is the somewhat lower base stats and fewer awakenings prevents many from being used as a sub; however, several cards feature powerful/unique actives that can make them desirable inherits.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses in the current meta to help you determine if it is worth rolling in. There will be a supplemental article discussing the Monster Exchange for Yusuke being published in the next few days.
