June 30 – July 1 Godfest Review Plus New Odin Evolution & Mesopotamian Commentary

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 absolutely nothing interesting this time around. This is because it is just a standard Godfest with an average line up and no boosted rates/additional cards being available.

With that being said, it is a pretty good event to skip in order to save your Magic Stones for a more lucrative event as there is speculation (nothing confirmed) that NA will be receiving a Super Godfest in the near future along with the release of a new 7* GFE.

On the other hand, both Red and Blue Odin received Mega Awoken evolutions that dramatically improve their viability. In addition to the regular Godfest review, this article will be touching upon the Odins to help you better understand them along with possibly changing your mind about using them as Monster Exchange fodder.

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.

June 30 – July 1 Godfest
6/7* GFE available

   3233    3370 3236 
 2991   3268     

6/7* GFE not available

          
 

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.

On a side note, Ameno  and Dark Kali  have been absent for the second time in a row. Continue reading June 30 – July 1 Godfest Review Plus New Odin Evolution & Mesopotamian Commentary

June 16-17 Godfest Featuring Evolved Neys

Introduction

Saturday marks the return of our bi-monthly Godfests and features the Evolved Neys as an added prize. This will bump up the total number of featured 6/7* Godfest Exclusives (GFE) to 25 as opposed to 21 from the previous Godfest.

The additional 4 cards should increase the total rolling rates for the GFE which may make this the strongest non-Super Godfest event. With that being said, the evolved Neys should have a similar rolling rate (speculation) as Zela due to them coming out as 7-stars.

May 31 – June 1 Godfest & Debut of Zela (New 7* GFE)

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.

Rolling rates may change or vary with each Godfest event and some 6* GFE may have higher rolling rates.

Introduction

Thursday’s Godfest marks the debut of the first 7* GFE: Zela . She comes with two unique evolution paths but will most likely be used in her triple 7 Combo 45 form as it is able to unleash explosive amounts of damage. Furthermore, this Godfest contains a respectable roster overall and may be worth rolling in if missing many of the featured cards.

As with always, the decision of whether or not to roll is dependent on your own Monster Box and needs.

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, 6* GFE will have 0.6% hit rate each for a total of (0.6*20) 12% for any 6* GFE. With that being said, some 6* GFE may feature an increased rate and you simply have to check the displayed rolling rates each time.

 Zela Debut

Zela is the first 7* GFE to be released and is possibly setting an unhealthy prescedent moving forward. This is because she is incredibly powerful along with being even harder to roll than her 6* cousins.

We have seen the trend of GungHo heavily pushing Powercreep away from Farmables and Pantheon cards which can make newer content more restrictive and less accessible overall. Thus, with the introduction of Zela (and more 7* GFE in JP), we may be entering a period where the top tier prizes are even more limited.

Regardless, Zela is an incredible card to own and will more than likely be a blessing for most Monster Boxes.

Pros
Cons
  • Two distinct forms
    • Choose either VDP  or 7c 45
    • 7c is almost always better
  • 1,100 weighted stats
  • Amazing active skill
    • Makes hearts and wood orbs
    • +2 combo count
    • Removes locked orbs
  • Bind immune
  • Can have three 7c and FUA 
  • Animated
  • Modest, albeit orb hungry leader skill
  • Wood is a less desirable colour
  • One SB Skill Boost
  • Longish base CD

Despite having two distinct forms, her triple 7 Combo 45 with the Follow Up Attack  is almost always the better form. This is because she offers explosive damage along with the highly desirable FUA. This enables her to function amazingly well on any combo or wood team but her main drawback is the fact that she is Wood.

Presently speaking, the top leaders are Edward , Yusuke , and Diablos . All three leaders have flexible team building requirements, but Zela cannot be used on Yusuke teams due to no Light attribute (and non-synergistic active).

With that being said, one can still use Zela on Edward and Diablos teams, but she is less desirable on Edward due to no Light (cannot benefit from his base active) along with her board changer being unlikely to help the team overall.

Thus, Zela would be relegated to Diablos teams which is still perfectly acceptable and her board changer is helpful there. While other combo teams can utilize her, they tend to be less powerful overall. Regardless, Zela will be a phenonminal sub provided the team can capitalize on her strengths.

On the other hand, her Void Damage Penetration  form should only be pursued if you are truly desperate for this type of awakening. This is because she comes with no natural offensive awakenings and her Super Follow Up Attack  is generally inferior to a regular FUA.

As a leader, Zela is stronger in her 7c form as it enables players to better take advantage of her explosive damage, even if unable to hit 2 or 3 wood combos. The fact that both leaders will have a personal 8x damage is meaningful and helps reduce the need to have wood orbs present. With that being said, she is still not the best leader due her low multiplier with only a single Wood combo despite having a wonderful passive damage reduction.

GFE Tier list

This list reflects a card’s overall usage/viability in the current meta as well as moving forward. Cards are in no particular order within each tier.

Use these rankings as a starting point and not as absolute truth. Highly valued cards only have merit if you have a team to support them so they are somewhat subjective to your own Monster Box.

Regardless of card’s ranking, you should almost always keep the first copy of anything you roll

Overall, this Godfest features a respectable line up and may be worth pursuing if missing many of the top prize cards. At this point there are no scheduled Collabs/Special Events coming to NA outside of the the off chance we get the recently announced Magic the Gather that JP will be having.

Notable changes
3236 Ilm A -> B

Ilm continues to find less value/usage due to the absence of more and more Ranking Dungeons. The First Pad Challenge Tournament was supposed to be part of a 4-Ranking Dungeon event but we never actually got the rest. I am not sure why GH keeps skipping Ranking Dungeons but this trend continues to make Ilm less desirable overall.

GFE Trading Post

After the excitement of the Yu Yu Hakusho Collab and our first taste of the GFE Trading Post, many players may be in need of restocking back up on 6* GFE. Sadly, gunning purely for 6* GFE was best done during the previous Super Godfest where the chances of rolling a 6* GFE were significantly higher.

Regardless, the Trading Post/Monster Exchange System makes it highly undesirable to actually sell any 6* GFE as they can instead be traded in for a desirable/rare card.

Pantheon/5* GFE Highlights

With the presence of a Godfest, only 6* GFE are Highlighted. As a result, the 6* Pantheon cards now lose their Highlighted rates and drop down to around 0.64% chance to roll which makes them on par with 6* GFE.

This creates an interesting conundrum, during non-Godfest events, the chances of you rolling a 6* Pantheon card are significantly higher but you cannot acquire the GFE.

With this in mind, it is still best to roll in Godfest events as the 6* GFE tend to be stronger overall and you can at least still roll a 6* Pantheon card at the same time.

Rolling rates may change each Godfest so always double check the line up beforehand.

Featured Cards

The Rare Egg Machine will continuously rotate various Pantheon and former 5* GFE cards that will overlap with Godfests; however, I am unable to find what will be available starting tomorrow so just simply check the disclosed rolling rates to see what is available.

Collabs vs Godfests

Prior to the reveal, it was quite risky to roll in Collabs as they often left players more disappointing than anything else. However, after seeing various Collab rolling rates, you have a pretty solid chance at acquiring a 7*+ card. Of course you will have to weigh the pros and cons along with examining the lowest rarity rolls from the Collab.

On the bright side, we are going to be entering an era where we will be able to utilize the Monster Exchange System to trade in for a desirable card. This was most prominent for acquiring Yusuke  as players did not actually have to roll in it and could simply exchange four 6* GFE.

Sadly, Collabs are starting to shift towards the strongest cards in the game which is unfortunate for newer players as there is simply not enough Magic Stones to go around.

As a result, it has become more valuable for veteran player to roll in Collabs due to the fact that it offers cards you cannot otherwise replicate. On the other hand, newer players will tend to find more merit in regular Godfests as they need to round out their Monster Box before chasing more niche cards.

Conclusion

The upcoming Godfest is reasonable overall and does include our first ever 7* GFE; however, unless the rolling rates are magically higher than normal, it will just be slightly better than average.

Let me know what you think about this event in the comments below along with how much you plan on rolling.

Happy Puzzling!

Super Godfest Descends

Introduction

North America will be gaining their first ever Super Godfest that will significantly change up the format. For this Godfest, players will be able to spend 6 Magic Stones for a guaranteed 6-star card. However, the available roster will not be exclusive to 6-star base cards and it will be possible to roll evolved 5-stars.

As such, it may not actually be as amazing as you may be led to believe. On the bright side, we are able to view JP’s line up as well as rolling rates and while we may not receive the exact same roster, it should be a general indication as to what we can expect.

The main drawback of this Godfest is that it comes on the heels of two 10-stone events.

Official announcement can be found HERE.

JP Rates

One side effect of being 2-3 months behind JP in terms of content is that we are able to “see into the future” to better plan our game play. This includes various evolutions, Monthly Quests, and various REM events. As such, we are able to see what JP had for their Super Godfest. Continue reading Super Godfest Descends

April 14-15 Godfest Overview

 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* 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* GFE may have higher rolling rates.

Introduction

The upcoming Godfest begins on April 14 and runs until April 15 and will once again feature twenty 6-star Godfest Exclusives. While the overall roster is reasonable overall, the GHNA Facebook page annoucned that Heroine REM will return this coming Monday.

With this in mind, it is better to hold off rolling in this Godfest and instead spend your Magic Stones on Heroine as it does hold numerous key and powerful cards. Just remember that Godfests will always be here and this current roster is average overall.

On a different note, the Twitch Stream will also announce the winner of the MP Survey which may also influence the decision to roll in future Godfests. On a somewhat side note, if you are desperate for MP, Heroine has a better ratio of MP to Stone consumption if selling off rolls.

As with any Godfest, the decision of whether to roll or not will be dependent on your own Monster Box and individual needs.

Introduction

The upcoming Godfest begins on March 31st and runs until April 1st and will once again feature twenty 6-star GFE. This current line up is reasonable overall but just remember that you only have to wait around 2 weeks for another Godfest to come back.

With that being said, it may be advantageous to wait for the official GungHo NA stream on Friday evening in case they tease a new Collab or Seasonal REM. This is because Puzzle and Dragons is slowly becoming more dependent on rare Collab cards and it may be best to save your Magic Stones for those events.

On the bright side, all players will receive a free Rank 50 roll for this Godfest.

As with any Godfest, the decision of whether to roll or not will be dependent on your own Monster Box and individual needs.

With that being said, there is some speculation that the Valentine’s Day REM will make a return soon if we judge from the cooking contest GungHo NA announced, but just bear in mind that it could be another month or two away.
