Monster Hunter Collab Review and Analysis – September 2020

Introduction

The Monster Hunter Collab returns to North America and contains an absurd number of different cards along with multiple evolutions. Furthermore, every single card has one Weapon Assist with the top rarity having two options.

This greatly decreases the frustration associated with duplicates as most cards will have value along with the several bottom rarity cards providing numerous Resists Jammer Resist Poison resist Blind Resist.

While the bottom rarity is not as strong relatively speaking to other options, they are still respectable cards and many can be used to help round out your inheritance options. As such, if you have never rolled here before, there is value to be found as almost every Weapon Assist will be helpful.

With this in mind, I would love to outline the pros and cons for each card to give players a better understanding of what to expect in the Monster Hunger Collab Rare Egg Machine.

On a different note, this is my longest article to date at 10,538 words.

Monster Hunter Collab REM Review and Analysis – October 2019

Introduction

The Monster Hunter Collab will be returning to North America for the third time in 2019 on Monday, October 7. This may feel like a bit of an overload, but it is one of the single best events to roll in for the vast majority of players.

This is because it is home to some of the most valuable Weapon Assists in the game along with tremendous value at the 5-star rarity. This helps lessen the pain of rolling a Gold Egg as some are chase cards due to their Weapon Assists and 60% resistance to Blind Blind Resist, Jammer Jammer Resist, or Poison Poison resist mechanics.

On the other hand, more veteran players may have less desire to roll as they may have already acquired most/all the 5-stars along with numerous dupes. This can make it challenging to continue rolling if already saturated.

The following article will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of all the featured REM cards to give players a better understanding of whether or not Magic Stones should be spent. With that being said, if you have rolled little or none at all thus far, it will almost always be a good idea to do so now.

Monster Hunter Collab Review and Analysis – April 2019

**All pulls will cost 10 Magic Stones**
Review of the Hunters will be done separately

Introduction

This coming Monday marks the exiting return of the Monster Hunter Collab which was last  seen in January of 2018. Amusingly, the Weapon Assists from Monster Hunter have become arguably more powerful with end game content heavily featuring problematic mechanics that are best dealt with by resisting them.

For the most part, the Monster Hunter Collab can be thought of as the Weapon Assist Collab as all of the cards are able to assume a Weapon Assist evolutions which grants the 5-star cards incredible value. As such, it is worth rolling in this event for just the 5-star cards as some are able to provide 60% resistance to Blind Blind Resist, Jammer Jammer Resist, or Poison Poison resist attacks.

Furthermore, all cards (new and returning) are able to be Limit Broken and receive Super Awakenings which pumps their weighted stats to amazingly high values.

Despite the fact that the top rarity cards are able to be acquired via the Monster Exchange system, the cost is far too high and would be difficult to justify for the majority of players.

This article will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of all the featured cards to give players a better understanding of whether or not Magic Stones should be spent. With that being said, the answer will often be yes if one should be rolling in this event as it holds so many valuable cards for pushing into the higher levels of Arena and end game content.

On a different note, I have hidden a special Easter Egg in this article =)
