GungHo Belial Is a Game Changer

Introduction

The GungHo Collab returns to North America and I almost feel it is simply an excuse to bring back the Orb Skin, GH Belial . At this point in time, GH Belial is one of the most over-tuned cards in the game and she is arguably the best universal Cleric available.

This is significant in a meta where the Cleric role is the most important card on a given team due to the prevalence of Binds, Awoken Binds, and Unmatchable mechanics. As such, having a fast charging solution is mandatory in virtually all content. Furthermore, GH Belial provides 4 Skill Boosts Skill Boost, Super Poison Resist , a Massive Healing Solution (+heart x5), and a 5 turn full-Cleric active skill on a non-Transforming card. By not Transforming, players can inherit a Delay/Haste/whatever is needed to solve Floor 1 for their respective team.

While all of this is meaningful, GH Belial cannot be Monster Exchanged for and players will either have to get lucky and roll her or IAP/purchase her Bundle directly. To clarify, GungHo does not support me in any way whatsoever so there is no incentive for me to mislead my readers by saying she is worth purchasing with real life money.

I was fortunate enough to roll one and have the IAP Bundle gifted by Deknas so I own both her Cleric and Dark form and to be honest, it has been incredibly valuable as I now have access to two amazingly powerful cards.

More so the point I wish to express is that if you are IAP-friendly, GH Belial is a meaningful purchase as she will have value for the foreseeable future as she will make your PAD life significantly easier, regardless of the form you choose to pursue.

GungHo Collab REM Review Review and Analysis – April 2021

Introduction

The GungHo Collab returns to North America once again but this time at a much later date relative to the JP server. This has significant Powercreep consequences as this event took around 4 months to arrive instead of the normal 2. I want to stress that the 2 month window for JP content is a guesstimate as nothing is guaranteed but being delayed by 2 additional months makes many of these cards feel “dead on arrival.”

To make make matter worse, the Monster Hunter Collab has a simultaneous release with JP which means we got significantly stronger cards much earlier than expected. This in turn makes many of the GungHo cards laughable by comparison.

As such, I feel that this is a relatively lackluster/underwhelming event as there almost no value at the bottom rarity along with the 6 and 7-stars often being inferior to other available options. As such, this can be an easy event to skip from a rolling point of view and maybe using the Monster Exchange to acquire a key card for your Monster Box.

Finally, I want to mention that this event is home to three cards who have an 18 turn Leader Swap ability. Owning one of these cards will be valuable for late game players as it does open up Leader Swapping strategies for WoC2 / Rank EXP abuse. As such, the value of these cards heavily hinges on your current game progression and what other Leader Swap options are available. For players who cannot take advantage of Leader Swapping, these will be relatively average cards.
