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.

Was Myr a Bad Idea & My Hopes for the next Farmable Monster

Introduction

Myr Miru has been live in NA/EU for many months now and took the PAD meta by storm. Not only was she the most powerful farmable monster released to date (from a leadership perspective), she was also capable of clearing all of the current content with relative ease. Her debut granted her an effective 4x HP / 49x ATK / 4x RCV that was later buffed to 59x ATK from a later JP stream has set the bar incredibly high in what it takes to become an end game leader as she combined both offensive and defensive capabilities.

While Myr was a blessing for a large portion of the Puzzle and Dragons population, she was also met with harsh criticism as she somewhat invalidated many polished/well developed teams overnight. While it is a frustrating experience to see months of hard work swept aside due to giant leaps in Powercreep, we have to remember that two new and unique aspects occurred at the same time: the heart cross meta and an actually viable farmable card.

What I hope to accomplish with this article is both a review of Myr’s history and current situation along with my hopes for farmable cards moving forward.

[Videos] Miru/Myr Descended Clears

Introduction

Miru/Myr Descended is going live tonight at 7pm and is one of the most anticipated debuts in recent memory. I thoroughly analyze her team building and review her in a previous post HERE that I strongly encourage you to have a read over if you have not done so already. However, I never discussed how to actually farm her challenging descend and I plan to post my various clears as I upload them so this post will be a work in progress for the first few days.

Successful clears

I will post my Fantastic clears as they are uploaded so check back on a regular basis =)

I plan on using Awoken DQXQ Awoken DQXQ, Blue Sonia Blue Sonia, and Dark Metatron dtron.

Mythic Plus with DQXQ

My fastest and most consistent team and comes with a Fantastic strategy for dealing with all the various mechanics. One big advantage is all the cards are max level by the end of the dungeon.

These videos should provide some inspiration on how tackle Myr Descended. You can do your own research by using the search term 時界龍 超絶地獄級

Farming Mythic Plus is incredibly challenging and if your main goal is skilling up Miru, it may be wise to simply farm Legend Plus. Continue reading [Videos] Miru/Myr Descended Clears

Miru – The Most Anticipated Farmable Monster Review and Analysis

Introduction

Dermatologists hate her! Farmable monster discovers the secret formula for the most Fantastic anti-aging cream that has even the most GungHo players all riled up with excitement. But seriously, Miru Miru is perhaps the first monster who actually gets younger with each evolution. How is this possible? Perhaps the secret is consuming the essence of Nordis Nordis and the angelic spirit of Elia Elia along with a whole host of other challenging to acquire evolution materials. Regardless, Miru is the most anticipated farmable monster since the inception of Zaerog Infinity Z8 as she is capable of forming a top tier team with amazing flexibility that can clear the highest tier of content PAD has to offer.

If you are looking for strategies for clearing her Descends, please refer to my other post HERE for my videos of my DQXQ Awoken DQXQ, Blue Sonia Blue Sonia, and Dark Metaron dtron clears.

Sample gameplay

Miru has a unique playstyle and is one of the few leaders to utilize the heart-cross formation to deal damage. Furthermore, the extensive additional time to move orbs allows you to fully set up your board. Miru has been heavily utilized by the Japanese player base and Reco showcases his wizardly skills in this solo Arena 1 clear:

Yamatsumi – Farmable Monster Analysis

We have not had a powerful or useful farmable monster since Zaerog Infinity Z8 . Some may argue that Volsung Volsung or Hel Awoken Hel are powerful, but are not special enough to warrant heavy investment. Volsung suffers from being inaccessible due to the challenging descend and an active is not novel nor unique (regardless of how strong it may be). Awoken Hel is capable of clearing high level content due to a unique 49x multiplier, but the playstyle may be too foreign for most players and has a more restrictive sub pool. Furthermore, her viability as a sub is almost non-existent except for over riding poison skyfalls (or funky heart orb generator).

However, the latest descend boss, Yamatsumi Yamatsumi , has power and uses beyond simply selling for 10 Monster Points. The key aspect in making a useful farmable monster is a novel active that has a synergetic role in popular teams. Continue reading Yamatsumi – Farmable Monster Analysis
