Heroine REM Review and Analysis – April 2018

Introduction

This coming Monday marks the triumphant return of the immensely popular Heroine REM. However, to mark the celebration of it’s third inception, three new cards will be added along with all the older cards receiving Limit Break and Super Awakenings.

These changes help ensure the machine stays exciting with the Super Awakenings giving the older cards significantly more value and versatility.

It is my belief that Collabs/Seasonal REMs should have value at their lowest rarity to help ensure there is enough collateral benefits to rolling. As such, it is vital that the 5* cards make for strong consolation prizes.

Despite having a wonderful roster, each roll will cost 10 Magic Stones but everything will sell for at least 15,000 Monster Points.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses in the current meta to help you determine if it is worth rolling in.

New Heroine Cards: Uruka, Julie, and Fluffier Ilmina

Introduction

The Heroine REM is returning to NA/EU with new ultimate evolutions and two brand new cards. The first time this special REM came around, I did encourage people to roll in it despite the 10-stone cost. This is because essentially all of the cards have merits and value for a more developed Monster Box. Furthermore, since they were all new at the time of their release, the chances of rolling dupes was significantly lower. As such, the motivation to roll or not to roll should be based on your own requirements and expectations.

Despite new evolutions, not much as essentially changed for the majority of the cards as they were mostly small stat boosts plus an additional awakening. However, Ilmina 3274 did receive a fluffier evolution that dramatically shifts their gameplay and usage. You can read about my original review of the Heroine REM HERE.

Amusingly, with the inclusion of Uruka  and Julie , the Heroine REM is stronger than ever as there are now plenty of amazing top tier prizes worth chasing. Just be aware that these prizes are in the 6+ star category so they will be rarer to roll.

Heroine Egg Machine Review and Analysis

Introduction

The Heroine Rare Egg Machine is one of the most highly anticipated events to come to Puzzle and Dragons. These monsters feature popular Godfest Exclusives, but are a seperate card that is only available through this exclusive machine for a limited time.

Unlike a regular Rare Egg Machine, each pull will cost 10 Magic stones. However, do not let the amplified price discourage you as the featured cards are all brand new (thus chances of dupes are lower) along with featuring powerful and unique abilities. Furthermore, all cards are worth at least 15,000 Monster Points and there are no silver eggs.

I highly encourage you to liberally use your Magic Stones in this event as well as trying your best to acquire as many for the duration of this event. This is because the cards featured here bring skill sets that cannot be replicated by other REM cards and being unique is incredibly valuable when tackling new content as many provide unique Killer combos along with 7×6 boards. In addition, most are pretty girls.

All players above rank 50 will receive 1 free pull on the Heroine Rare Egg Machine.

Impressions

Ilmina is the only 7-star roll from the Heroine Rare Egg Machine and will be one of the most desired monsters. Her active skill is unique in that she is able to fulfill two role simultaneously through her true damage component and full board changer. This enables you to execute high defense monsters and then sweep the next floor with the generated board from a single active. This saves you an active skill slot when playing through challenging content or can even help with preserving time in Ranking dungeons or mass farming.
