Heroine REM Review and Analysis – November 2019

Introduction

The Heroine Rare Egg Machine will be returning to North America once again while providing various buffs to several cards along with new Weapon Assists for five of the 6* cards.

While this does sound nice, this event may be skipped by many players due to how many times it has come around and no one wanting a seventh duplicate of a 5-star card.

This is the exact situation I am in as I have heavily rolled in this event the first couple of times it came around and despite never acquiring a 7-star card, I have no interest in pursuing them. This is not because they are weak, but the 10-Stone cost combined with me owning numerous copies of almost every 5-star card will result in countless wasted rolls. Furthermore, the 5-star cards were once unique and strong but have now become somewhat Powercrept by newer and flashier options.

As a result, the motivation/desire to roll may be lower, even for new players as fewer cards at the bottom rarity stand out like they did in the past.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses to give players a better understanding of what each card can do for their Monster Box.

13 Million Downloads Ranking Dungeon Strategies

Introduction

In addition to the Fate Collab and Samurai Super Godfest, North America is also being blessed with another Ranking dungeon that can be viewed as unfair if ones does not own the key pieces.

This is because the scoring system has been heavily skewed to favour L  awakenings to the point where players can run into negative time and still secure a Crown (top 3%).

This article will be mostly to showcase how and why Bicolour + 2 turn Haste abuse yields the highest scores.

153,600 run

Currently at 0.4%

127,000 Zeus Verse

Currently at 2% and has so much room for improvement

Haste loops with 7×6 bicolours

The main strategy in this Ranking Dungeon is to use as many bicolour boards as possible in conjunction with 2 Haste to loop your actives together. This leads to every or nearly every floor being a bicolour which is significantly easier to solve. Continue reading 13 Million Downloads Ranking Dungeon Strategies

Heroine REM Review and Analysis – December 2018

Introduction

This Boxing Day, North America will be blessed with yet another 10-Stone Egg Machine through the Fest Exclusive Heroine series. While it may feel frustrating to constantly be bombarded by 10-Stone events, one has to remember that Heroine was one of the original events that featured a higher Stone cost so this should not come as any surprise.

As a whole, the Heroine series is one of the higher-value events due to the fact that many of the cards provide wonderful value but does fall short compared to Dragonbound & Dragon Caller (DBDC) due to the fact that DBDC has stronger cards at the bottom rarity. With that being said, Heroine is home to some invaluable cards that are hard to replicate elsewhere. Thus, it is worth rolling assuming one is missing many of the lower rarity cards with Mel  being a key card to own.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses to give players a better understanding of what each card can do for their Monster Box.

Xiu Min Ranking Dungeon Overview

Introduction

The Xiu Min Ranking Dungeon is simply a terrible Ranking Dungeon. This is because it is a 10 floor adventure with no Leader Skills. As such, buttons reign supreme along with the need to have highly specific cards. Lacking even just a few key cards will make it significantly harder to crown to the point one has to pray hard to skyfalls to succeed.

In fact, not having at least 10+ combo count average (on 6×5) will place you outside of a crown unless you are able to move blisteringly fast.

This article will give an overview of the generic team template used for this Ranking Dungeon along with my own compositions/modifications to achieve a reasonably high score.

On a side note, this article is being released late due to health issues.

10-Stone Voice Godfest Review

Introduction

The magical event that is scheduled for North America kicks off with a bang on Halloween with a special 10-Stone Voice Godfest. This event is akin to a Super Godfest in that the cost per roll is 10 Magic Stones, but the actual rolling rates are significantly higher along with each roll coming with +297 and max awoken.

While the pluses and awakenings are nice, they are not truly needed and technically add to the cost of each roll, but having a 33% chance to roll any 6/7* Godfest Exclusive (GFE) or 7* Heroine card is pretty amazing.

This leads to a stone conundrum for players as we will be receiving 100 Magic Stones at the same time along with the Dragonbound & Dragon Caller (DBDC) event on the near horizon.

As with any event, the choice of whether or not to roll should be based on your own individual needs and goals. With that being said, it would be wise to save Magic Stones for the DBDC event if missing the 5* cards as they are tremendously valuable.

Featured cards

The Voice Godfest is split into two days with a different set of cards being Highlighted. Highlighted cards have double the chances of being rolled compared to non-Highlighted cards of the same rarity: GFE/Heroine or Pantheon. Continue reading 10-Stone Voice Godfest Review
