Player’s Choice Godfest December 2018 Review + Commentary

Introduction

Player’s Choice Godfest (PCGF) is a special event where players are allowed to vote on their favourite cards to be featured in a Godfest. Historically speaking, PCGF has become an underwhelming event pre-disclosed rolling rates due to the fact that Godfest Exclusives (GFE) were always voted in and had abysmal rolling rates. With that being said, things have taken a turn for the better with this current format featuring the top 25 GFE and top 25 Pantheon cards with any GFE having a 33% roll rate.

Of course there is a catch as all rolls will cost 10 Magic Stones with GungHo trying to sweeten the deal by having all rolls come out at +297, Max Level, Max Awoken, and their 7-star form (evolved/Awoken if possible). While this is frustrating due to the inflated cost and arguably redundant collateral benefits, this is the way of the future for high-value Godfests.

Based on the JP-server and their events, this format of 33% GFE for 10 Magic Stones will become the norm so we will have to get on board at some point. Thus, the decision of whether or not to roll comes down to your own Monster Box and how well the line up can benefit you.

In addition to presenting the line up with commentary, I will also include a reaction table to the voting for various categories such as most surprising, most over-hyped, and more.

The Player’s Choice Godfest will feature the three new Fest Exclusives, Valkyrie – Ciel , Zeus – Giga , and Athena – Non . In addition, players are able to Monster Exchange a special token for any one of these three cards and this exchange should be done after rolling to avoid the possibility of acquiring dupes. More information can on the new Fest Exclusives can be found on my previous post HERE.

Featured cards

The Player’s Choice Godfest is split into two parts with each one lasting a week. While they technically feature the same monsters, the rolling rates for each part are different with the Highlights having 2x the rolling rates compared to non-Highlights for GFE.

10-Stone Seasonal Godfest Review – December 2018

Introduction

Starting on Monday, December 3rd, North America will be enjoying a 10-stone Seasonal Godfest. This special Godfest will last for 1 week and be broken up into two parts with each part featuring a different line up.

Furthermore, all rolls will come out at 7-stars (evolved and Awoken if possible), +297, max Level, and max Awoken. This is akin to the previous Voice Godfest in that each roll will cost 10 Stones so it would not be a far stretch to assume that the rolling rates should be similar (around 33% chance for any GFE/Seasonal card).

If that is the case, this would be a wonderful event as these rates would be hard to beat; however, the actual roster this time around feels less potent simply because the Seasonal cards featured do not come from 10-Stone machines with several of the Seasonal cards having lower value. Of course, the inclusion of Beach Barbara & Julie  will be tempting for players who missed her the first time around.

North America has just received another 100 Magic Stones plus 52 from the special Anniversary Quests along with various log-in bonuses. As such, players are most likely saturated with Magic Stones and are hungry to spend them.

In terms of other high-value events on the near horizon, the Player’s Choice Godfest (PCGF) should be happening soon. Historically speaking, PCGF has been an underwhelming affair simply because the rates were abysmal for GFE. With that being said, the most recent PCGF occurred prior to disclosed rolling rates and GungHo has improved the chances for these types of events. Furthermore, it is quite likely that the NA PCGF will debut the new 7-star GFE who come with Orb Skins (cosmetic changes to orbs) and will probably mirror the rates of the JP debut Godfest.

Taking all of this into consideration, it is hard to say which event is better to roll in: Seasonal Godfest or PCGF and we will not know the rolling rates of either until they go live along with the PCGF roster.

As such, the decision of whether or not to roll comes down to your individual Monster Box needs but generally speaking, high value Godfests are used to acquire as many GFE as possible. From there, the GFE are used as trade fodder for seasonal/collab events such as the Full Metal Alchemist (Edward ) which overlaps with Seasonal Godfest.

One last point to consider is that there is nothing on the horizon in terms of high value event after PCGF as NA is 2-3 months behind JP and no other major event has been announced.

Featured cards

The Seasonal Godfest is split into two parts with a different set of cards being featured but no information on Highlights or rolling rates has been disclosed. Generally speaking, Highlighted cards have a higher chance of being rolled compared to non-Highlighted cards of the same rarity: GFE or Pantheon.

10-Stone Voice Godfest Review

Introduction

The magical event that is scheduled for North America kicks off with a bang on Halloween with a special 10-Stone Voice Godfest. This event is akin to a Super Godfest in that the cost per roll is 10 Magic Stones, but the actual rolling rates are significantly higher along with each roll coming with +297 and max awoken.

While the pluses and awakenings are nice, they are not truly needed and technically add to the cost of each roll, but having a 33% chance to roll any 6/7* Godfest Exclusive (GFE) or 7* Heroine card is pretty amazing.

This leads to a stone conundrum for players as we will be receiving 100 Magic Stones at the same time along with the Dragonbound & Dragon Caller (DBDC) event on the near horizon.

As with any event, the choice of whether or not to roll should be based on your own individual needs and goals. With that being said, it would be wise to save Magic Stones for the DBDC event if missing the 5* cards as they are tremendously valuable.

Featured cards

The Voice Godfest is split into two days with a different set of cards being Highlighted. Highlighted cards have double the chances of being rolled compared to non-Highlighted cards of the same rarity: GFE/Heroine or Pantheon. Continue reading 10-Stone Voice Godfest Review

7 Stone Super Godfest is Here and you Should Probably Roll

Introduction

The highly anticipated Lucky 7’s Super Godfest (SGF) has finally arrived in North America! This will most likely be the the best event for the rest of 2018 aside from the return of Dragonbound & Dragon Caller REM (DBDC, coming soon). As such, this imposes a small conundrum for players: spend Magic Stones here or in the revamped DBDC event.

While there is no perfect/universal answer that is applicable to every player, a reasonable word of advice would be roll SGF if one already has a good chunk of DBDC cards (most notably the 5-stars) and roll in DBDC if missing the valuable 5-stars.

Of course, your individual goals, Monster Box, and needs will vary so take that piece of advice with a grain of salt.

Regardless, this is a fantastic place to spend your hard-earned Magic Stones and the following article will explain why this event is better than a regular Godfest despite the 7-stone cost per roll.

SGF vs vanilla Godfests

The past several months have given us a general idea of what to expect from regular Godfests: disappointing rates with only approximately 10-11% chance of rolling a 6 or 7-star Godfest Exclusive (GFE) due to the fact that only 17 are featured at a time.

September 30 – October 1 Godfest Review Plus New Ameno & Kami Evolutions

Godfest Basics

The format for Godfests has been dramatically changed through their REM Renewal along with Full Disclosure of Rolling Rates. These changes dramatically improve your chances of rolling a specific card as the pool of available monsters is significantly smaller as only a portion of the all possible monsters are featured at a given time. This is great news for players as you are better able to focus your Magic Stones on key cards.

Godfests no longer advertise “rate increases” and instead Highlighted specific cards along with 6/7* Godfest Exclusives being available. As such, these events are the best time to roll the REM as the current meta is heavily favouring these rare and elusive monsters.

Rolling rates may change or vary with each Godfest event and some 6/7* GFE may have higher rolling rates. Always check the rolling rates before proceeding.

Introduction

Saturday  marks the return of our bi-monthly Godfests and features what essentially amounts to an average roster. This is because there are only 17 GFE featured with what is presumed to be average rolling rates. Furthermore, North America has several meaningful events coming in the near future such as Beach (on Monday), a 7-themed Super Godfest, and the renewed DBDC Collab. As such, it may be best to skip this event all together in anticipation for the more lucrative events.

Regardless, this article will provide an overview of the featured cards along with a reposting of my Saline  review from last time.

As a whole, this Godfest is average but comes right before potentially 3 exciting events: Beach REM, 7’s Super Godfest, and DBDC. Thus, it may be best to save Magic Stones for these events.

My review of the Beach REM is coming soon.

Godfest overview

Unlike Godfests of the past, only some 6/7* GFE will be featured. If they are listed as unavailable, you will be unable to roll them during the event.

September 30 – October 1 Godfest
6/7* GFE available

         2991 
     
 

6/7* GFE not available

     3233    3370 3236
   3268   

You ideally wish to line up a Godfest that overlaps with several key targets to improve your overall chances of success. Thus, it may be advantageous to wait for a more opportune Godfest if the current one does not feature enough key targets.

Based on the revealed rolling rates of previous Godfests, 6* GFE will have 0.6% hit rate whereas the 7* had 0.5%. With that being said, some GFE may feature an increased rate and you simply have to check the displayed rolling rates each time.

Looking at the past few Godfests, it appears that the trend is now to include two 7* and fifteen 6* GFE which is significantly lower compared to before. We used to have twenty 6* and one 7* which makes the overall rolling rates for hitting any 6/7* GFE lower.

Fenrir Viz  has not been featured for 3 Godfests in a row while Madoo , Dark Metatron , Kaede , and Kanna 3233 have been absent for a second time. Continue reading September 30 – October 1 Godfest Review Plus New Ameno & Kami Evolutions

Introduction

Saturday  marks the return of our bi-monthly Godfests and features the debut of the highly anticipated Saline . Saline is a brand new 7* Godfest Exclusive and will be a top prize card for many players as she is able to boost rank experience gained by 1.8x. While this may look strange on paper, it is invaluable for higher ranking players or those who wish to chain rank ups more easily.

Unfortunately, Saline will be arriaving in a lackluster Godfest that only features 17 GFE. This has become the norm and makes current Godfests significantly worse compared to a few months ago simply because the number of featured GFE is smaller. As such, it may be best to skip this Godfest and wait for an event where GFE are better featured.

Furthermore, JP just had a massive Dragonbound & Dragon Caller (DBDC) renewal that introduced new cards and significant buffs to existing cards. For the most part, DBDC is one of the best special REMs to roll in as it features the strongest line up of lowest rarity cards and is only rivaled by Monster Hunter. This event should be coming to NA in about 2 months time along with heavy speculation of a 7-star Super Godfest beforehand.

This article will summerize the featured line up along with providing a review of Saline.

Introduction

Friday marks the return of our bi-monthly Godfests and the upcoming one is average at best. This is because it does not feature exceptionally boosted rates along with only 17 featured 6/7* GFE. This appears to be the new norm for Godfests moving forward which is a step back from the 21-22 featured ones from a couple of months ago. In addition to my regular review, I will also be including my previous Madoo  /  commentary for those who missed it.

Another reason to avoid this Godfest is the potential for an upcoming 7-themed Super Godfest that was not tied to a specific date/anniversary. This means there is a strong likelihood NA will receive something similar in 2 months (no confirmation, just speculation). As such, it would be wise to skip this Godfest in favour of saving Stones for more promising events.
