Super Godfest is Coming to North America!

Introduction

Super Godfest is making a triumphant return to Puzzle and Dragons and will also feature several seasonal cards to help spice things up. As a whole, a Super Godfest is the best time to roll the Rare Egg Machine as it has the highest total chance of rolling a 6/7* GFE. These cards have become invaluable as both powerful monsters and fodder for trading in via the Monster Exchange system.

This article will further elaborate why a Super Godfest is a wonderful time to spend your Magic Stones along with the anticipated rolling rates.

The Super Godfest occurs for 24 hours
7/31 (Tue), 8:00 PM – 8/1 (Wed), 7:59 PM (UTC-8)

Super Godfest vs Godfest

The Rare Egg Machine Renewal has dramatically changed how Godfests function and will no longer feature all of the 6/7* GFE each time. As a result, the overall rolling rates for any of these cards will naturally be lower as several cards are missing. Continue reading Super Godfest is Coming to North America!

Leader skill

Reincarnated Raphael  has an interesting leader skill as it is comprised of two distinct components: rainbow activation and leaving 5 or less orbs on the board along with No Skyfalls.

  • 4/5 colours = 16x ATK
  • 5 or less orbs remaining = 64x ATK
  • Full activation = 1,024x ATK

Ganesha’s Treasure Trove – Overview & Why You Should be Farming

Introduction

Puzzle and Dragons has dramatically shifted over the past few years to a coop-based game if one wants to be as efficient as possible. This has it’s pros and cons, but being forced to play in multiplayer is impractical for many players. As such, having a viable solo mode experience is always welcomed and Ganesha’s Treasure Trove is just what the doctor ordered.

Ganesha’s Treasure Trove is a 1 week event that can only be completed in solo mode and is easily the most efficient way to farm Super Snow Globes. As such, it is well worth your time/stamina to play this dungeon as much as possible during the week.

This article will summarize how the dungeon/Monster Exchange system works for Ganesha’s Treasure Trove along with a sample speed farming team.

Monster Exchange System

Ganesha’s Treasure Trove drops special Medals at random and these can be traded in via the Monster Exchange System under the Event tab. Continue reading Ganesha’s Treasure Trove – Overview & Why You Should be Farming

July 21-22 Godfest Review Plus Reeche & Celtic 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 the brand new 7-star GFE, Reeche . Reechie is an incredibly powerful card but her debut is alongside a vanilla Godfest and there is strong speculation that a Super Godfest is due in the near future. In fact, this Godfest could be the worst to date from a 6/7-star perspective as there are only 17 total GFE featured and assuming the 0.6/0.5& rolling rates, it will be even harder to acquire any one of them.

A Super Godfest is the best time to acquire a 6-star GFE and the particular one acquired has become less important now due to the Monster Exchange System. The Monster Exchange System enables players to trade in four 6-star GFE for a rare Collab card of their choice. As such, having a larger pool of 6-stars to draw upon has become vital to acquiring what are arguably the strongest cards in the game.

Thus, it is best to wait for the soon-to-come Super Godfest and simply pass on this event all together.

This article will summarize the cards available along with providing insight into Reeche and the featured Celtic Pantheon.

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.

July 21 – 22 Godfest
6/7* GFE available

       3233  
      

6/7* GFE not available

       3370 3236  2991
  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.

On a side note, Typhon , Ryune , and Sylvie  are absent for the second time in a row.

This Godfest features five less 6* GFE and one more 7* GFE
Assuming standard rolling rates, this will be the lowest Godfest since the REM Renewal for acquiring any 6/7* GFE

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.

Farmable Persona Collab Drops Review

Introduction

The Persona Collab will be arriving in North America Monday, July 16 and comes with both an REM and Farmable component. Generally speaking, most farmables that come with Collabs are for Fan Service, but Persona is unique in that there are 4 Weapon Assists  available.

Weapon Assist

Weapon Assist cards are able to be inherited like most cards, but they will also transfer over several awakenings to the base card.
