All I Want for Christmas is…a Snow Globe?

I can’t believe this will be my third Puzzle and Dragons Christmas and every year it gets bigger and better! Gung-Ho has consistently been stepping up their game in terms of the number events, content being released, and magic stone/tamadras/pii give-aways. Tomorrow, we get the revamped Christmas Dungeon with the top difficulty being amusingly named SuperBlessed. I dearly hope the dungeon features festive music (I still do not understand people who play with the sound off) as that helped me get into the Christmas spirit and combined my favourite time of year with my love for PAD.

One Step Closer to my Dream Team

The previous Player’s Choice Godfest, I managed to roll a Susano Baby Susano in my 14 rolls for Mantastic. He competes with my hypermaxed Kush Baby Kush and Dark Izanami Diza as a shielding option. However, Awoken Susano Susano outclasses both of them because of his bind-immunity and covering both red and green for my Awoken Sakuya Sakuya team. Having both Susano and Sakuya being bind-immune allows me to activate my leader skill even if the boss tries to bind every monster on my team. This will save me at some point or another and I am looking forward to trying a new Sakuya team roster. Continue reading One Step Closer to my Dream Team

Umi Yami vs Hera Rush Video

Today I managed to record my Fantastic account’s screen and made a quick clear of Hera Rush via the coin dungeon. This was essentially my first recording and hopefully the sound and screen capture was reasonably clear. Recording my screen is a work in progress and would love any feedback the community has. I also want to know if my (Mantastic) voice is soothing to hear and if the commentary is helpful.

Awoken Shiva Team Building and Discussion

Shiva Awoken Shiva is the hottest fire lead in the game and was the reason fire teams are viable in the current meta. Fire teams were historically row-based Fire Row and the row playstyle was limiting due to the heavy reliance on fire-orb makers, the orb manipulation required to create a horizontal line of 6, and the lack of time extends available. Those factors pushed rows out of the meta and the game became more fixated around two-prong attacks (TPA) TPA .  TPA are much easier to match and require less orbs to deal damage. This also allows you to create more off-colour combos, and each match adds an additional 25% damage. Shiva has a similar feel and playstyle to Awoken Bastet Bastet in that they are both combo-based leaders who utilize TPA . Shiva ‘s active skill has been buffed in his awoken form, but it is still a bit lackluster as you bring two into the descend, and it is slightly redundant to have two cards with a damage enhancing active.

Awoken I&I Released

I&I I am a bit disappointed we did not get I&I for Halloween as their artwork is amazing and completely embraces the spooky theme. That withstanding, they should be one of the first  awoken Norse Gods to hit North America along with the strangely dressed Thor . The awoken form of all the Norse Gods adds significant power through four awakenings and now allows I&I to be either a row or TPA-based sub. The addition of two Skill Lock Resist helps your teams achieve 100% resistance with greater ease. The new active skill gives me somewhat mixed feelings. I spent a small lifetime skilling up my I&I 2 and the thought of having that go to waste is a little soul crushing. Normally I am all Gung-Ho for an awoken form with a revamped active skill, but the I&I active is perhaps a side upgrade. I say this because the awoken form raises the minimum cooldown to 12 turns compared to 9. It increases the damage multiplier to 2x from 1.5x, so that is very welcomed as it could ensure a clean kill. Extending the damage to dark type monsters is relatively pointless as you are most certainly using I&I as a mono team lead or sub. Continue reading Awoken I&I Released

The voting for this year’s Player’s Choice Godfest (PCGF) is very well done compared to previous years where there was more hostility between the newer and veteran players wanting different gods. With the advent of more clearly defined powerhouse leaders and the MP Dragons, players are given more direction Continue reading Player’s Choice Godfest Anticipation 11/29-12/01
