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the PAD Academy cards are reskins of existing (and lackluster) REM cards along with the 5 and 6-stars being horribly outdated.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

Dragonbound & Dragon Caller REM Review and Analysis – April 2018

Introduction

Monday, April 23rd marks the exciting return of the highly coveted Dragonbound & Dragon Caller (DBDC) REM. DBDC is arguably the strongest event in Puzzle and Dragons due to it’s stellar line up and amazing value at the bottom rarity.

Most Seasonal events/Collabs have a few chase cards but tend to have middling value at the bottom. As such, there is often little collateral benefit in rolling those events. However, with DBDC, you actually want many of the Gold eggs which in turn makes it the ideal  place to spend your Magic Stones. If you have absolutely no cards from the REM you should be heavily rolling here as it will grant you cards that cannot be replicated anywhere else.

In addition to three new cards being added to the rolling roster, most of the older cards now gain the ability to Limit Break and gain Super Awakenings or stat improvements for the Weapon Assists.

These changes help ensure the machine stays exciting with the Super Awakenings giving the older cards significantly more value and versatility.

Despite having a wonderful roster, each roll will cost 10 Magic Stones but everything will sell for at least 15,000 Monster Points.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses in the current meta to help you determine if it is worth rolling in.

Heroine REM Review and Analysis – April 2018

Introduction

This coming Monday marks the triumphant return of the immensely popular Heroine REM. However, to mark the celebration of it’s third inception, three new cards will be added along with all the older cards receiving Limit Break and Super Awakenings.

These changes help ensure the machine stays exciting with the Super Awakenings giving the older cards significantly more value and versatility.

It is my belief that Collabs/Seasonal REMs should have value at their lowest rarity to help ensure there is enough collateral benefits to rolling. As such, it is vital that the 5* cards make for strong consolation prizes.

Despite having a wonderful roster, each roll will cost 10 Magic Stones but everything will sell for at least 15,000 Monster Points.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses in the current meta to help you determine if it is worth rolling in.

Valentine’s REM Review and Analysis – March 2018

Introduction

Love is Patient, Love is Kind, PAD Valentine’s REM occurs in March. While you may have spent all of your Magic Stones on Full Metal Alchemist, this seasonal REM is reasonable, but not as game changing overall.

For the most part, there is only one true chase card but the sprinkling of Gemstone Princesses does provide value at the lower rarities. This is important as these types of actives are the most reliable/universal way to provide damage enhancement for your teams. Furthermore, while the Chinese Celestials offered in this event are lackluster for end game players, they may be the easiest source of board changing for a newer player.

Finally, all of the cards featured in this REM are adorable and may help bring your Waifu to Laifu.

There are currently no updated pages for each of the cards on padx, but you can refer to their initial news post HERE.
