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

Super Godfest is Coming to North America!

Introduction

Super Godfest is making a triumphant return to Puzzle and Dragons and will also feature several seasonal cards to help spice things up. As a whole, a Super Godfest is the best time to roll the Rare Egg Machine as it has the highest total chance of rolling a 6/7* GFE. These cards have become invaluable as both powerful monsters and fodder for trading in via the Monster Exchange system.

This article will further elaborate why a Super Godfest is a wonderful time to spend your Magic Stones along with the anticipated rolling rates.

The Super Godfest occurs for 24 hours
7/31 (Tue), 8:00 PM – 8/1 (Wed), 7:59 PM (UTC-8)

Super Godfest vs Godfest

The Rare Egg Machine Renewal has dramatically changed how Godfests function and will no longer feature all of the 6/7* GFE each time. As a result, the overall rolling rates for any of these cards will naturally be lower as several cards are missing. Continue reading Super Godfest is Coming to North America!

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.
