5th REMDra Fever – No Dark Event Strategies

Introduction

The REMDra Fever “Ranking” Dungeon returns to North America and diverts from the traditional Ranking Dungeon format as rewards are achieved via a cumulative score. As such, players can grind for a Crown by simply hitting the cap of 999,999 points. With that being said, it will take numerous runs to achieve but there are ways to bolster your score to save time, stamina, and mental sanity.

Furthermore, the dungeon is quite lucrative to run over and over again as it only costs 30 stamina and offers valuable drops. In addition, any number of players can achieve a Crown and is not only given to the first X number of players to hit 999,999. Finally, no Dark orbs will be present which will inflate our combo count and hasten our journey to 999,999 points.

This article will explain the rules for REMDra Fever and how to maximize your score potential.

5th REMDra Fever Event: 11/8 (Fri) 12am – 11/11 (Mon) 11:59pm (PST)

6th REMDra Fever Event: 11/14 (Thu) 12am ~ 11/17 (Sun) 11:59pm (PST)

Monster Exchanging for Top Rarity Collab/Seasonal Cards

Introduction

The Monster Exchange system is one of the better aspects of Puzzle and Dragons as it allows players to access cards that would normally be too difficult to acquire otherwise. By being able to trade in several other cards for something of value can greatly advance your progress but it is not without drawbacks.

The card you are trading for will cost 4 or 5 rare cards and the value they bring to your Monster Box must last for a prolong period of time to justify this trade.

With this in mind, I want to outline how I approach Monster Exchanging for top rarity Collab/Seasonal cards by explaining my own mental checklist.

This article is based on my own goals and approach to playing the game which may be different compared yours so use these thoughts as a starting point, not absolute truths.

Question Time with Mantastic – November 2019

Introduction

The general gist of Question Time posts are for players to ask various PAD-related questions that do not have a simple/Google-able answer or related article on my website. I do play other games and have often found myself having specific/unique questions about it but have no where to go and can imagine this may hold true for some of my readers.

With that being said, there will be some restrictions on the types of questions I will be answering.

If planning on commenting on a regular basis, it is advantageous to create a WordPress account to both receive notifications as well as giving me a point of reference as to who I am responding to.

Do’s and Don’t

download For the most part, almost any question will be answered, even some non-invasive Off-Topic ones; however, it is best to ask questions that require explanation/why/my personal opinion. The following examples are Fantastic types of questions to ask:

  • Of these options, what is the best Yusuke team I can make for Arena 3?
  • What direction do you think GungHo will take with the 4x HP leads?
  • Can Heart Cross teams be revived and if so, how?

x The following types of questions will not be answered by me either because it has a simple Google-able answer or shows a lack of effort on the reader’s part:

  • Anything that Google/Padx can answer
  • A link to your entire Monster Box and saying “make me a team”

Conclusion

I hope my readers use this opportunity to ask questions that will hopefully improve their overall game play and progression.

Happy Puzzling!

Power Rangers Collab REM Review & Analysis – October 2019

Introduction

The Power Rangers Collab is the second NA-exclusive event and is a significant improvement compared to Voltron. Despite the 10-stone cost, many of these cards are powerful or possessing kits we have no way of replicating. In addition to that, every card has a Weapon Assist which helps provide merit to most Monster Boxes.

In fact, I plan on rolling a modest amount in this event due to the plethora of useful 6-star cards I could acquire. Furthermore, the fact that it is a new event should help in avoiding dupes, at least initially.

Regardless, this article will cover the strengths and weaknesses of each card to give players a better understanding of what to expect in the Power Rangers REM.

Top Farmable PAD Cards – October 2019

Introduction

Puzzle and Dragons is one of the longest mobile games on the market and has evolved and changed over the years. Initially there was a heavier emphasis on Farmable monsters (those that can be acquired outside the Rare Egg Machine [REM]) but this is somewhat on the decline due to the differing rate of Powercreep between REM and farmable.

With that being said, there are still some invaluable Farmable cards and I wish to highlight those that I feel are the most valuable at this point in time.

Just bear in mind that this list is compromised of my own personal opinion and should be used as a starting point, not as absolute truth. There will be some cards I value or undervalue compared to you and if you feel I have missed someone or grossly miss-evaluated a card, let me know in the comments below.

How I classify a Farmable monster

Any card that comes from either a dungeon drop, Monster Points, Pal Egg Machine (PEM), or Monster Exchange I consider a Farmable monster. Essentially, the idea is you do not need to spend Magic Stones or Real Life money to acquire (eg. Collab Orb Skin cards are not Farmable).

These cards may require a higher level of investment to fully max out but it is worth the cost considering Magic Stones are not required.

Overview

I have grouped the various Farmable cards into rough categories. It is possible for some cards to bleed over into other pools so use this as a starting template for where you can use them.

Halloween REM Review & Analysis – October 2019

Introduction

The Halloween REM returns to North America in time for this spooky day and also means we are receiving this 2-3 months ahead of “schedule.” This is because we are having this event at essentially the same time as the JP server which is exciting to say the least. Furthermore, there have been numerous buffs across all rarities along with new cards and evolutions.

Not only can we partake in the hype of new changes, but we are in theory receiving stronger cards ahead of schedule. This can be important for players who are pushing through challenging content as they are able to potentially gain irreplaceable tools.

With that being said, NA faces a unique problem in that we do not know what Power Rangers Collab will hold as it will be a debut event in the near future. This has the potential to range from amazing to lackluster and everything in between.

Regardless, this article will cover the strengths and weaknesses of each card to give players a better understanding of what to expect in this year’s Halloween REM.

Best Friend Reset Coming Tues Oct 22

The Reset will not provide a new selection after the next maintenance on 10/22 (Tues) 6pm (UTC-8). Failure to use before will cause it to be lost

Introduction

On Tuesday October 22 at 6pm (UTC-8), PAD will go under maintenance and this will also reset the Best Friend Token, Present, and One-Time Bargain set.

The Best Friend reset will grant an additional Token which will allow you to choose a new Best Friend. This additional selection will not override your existing ones but failing to use a current selection will not carry over after the reset.

Best Friends are a vital part of your PAD experience as it will enable you to expand the leaders available as well as gaining additional Pal Points.

This article will explain the Friend and Best Friend System along with how you can improve your chances of being selected by strangers as well as how to form BFF Triangles.

From the previous reset, I was the first player on any PAD server to achieve 300/300 Best Friends on my Mantastic account and wondering if I can achieve that same status on Fantastic as I am around 175. With this in mind, if you wish to Best Friend Mantastic or Fantastic, please leave your ID number, your in game name, and which account you want to Best Friend. Mantastic can only accept a handful of players as I can only delete a few inactive BFF.

Finding Friends

The first step to Pal Point domination is to find friends to populate your list. As you rank up, your friends list will max out at 50 players. You can add 5 additional friend slots for 1 magic stone, up to a maximum of 300 friends. Continue reading Best Friend Reset Coming Tues Oct 22
