Player’s Choice Godfest Results & Commentary

Introduction

The 10-Magic Stone Player’s Choice Godfest (PCGF) voting has come to a close and the results have been calculated and the event will transpire from December 30 – January 5, 2020.

Depending on your current level of progress and how deep your Monster Box is, this event may have varying degrees of value. This is because Collabs/Seasonal cards have become key to own when pushing through challenging content and many cards from the Rare Egg Machine are starting to fall behind.

With that being said, there are still numerous strong cards to be rolled within Player’s Choice Godfest and this article will highlight my thoughts and opinions as well as providing commentary on the featured roster.

You can find the official GungHo Facebook posting HERE.

PCGF History & Seasonal Super Godfests

In the past, Player’s Choice Godfests were exciting events as Collabs/Seasonal cards barely existed or if they did, had middling value. As such, the best cards to be had came from the Rare Egg Machine and many of them were actually Pantheon cards. While it is impossible to know the rolling rates of the past, the fact that all of the cards you wanted could be found in a single machine made it worth saving up for.

Player’s Choice Godfest Voting December 2019

Introduction

The Player’s Choice Godfest (PCGF) will return to North America with voting already underway. Historically, this event was one of the most exciting times for Puzzles and Dragons due to the lower frequency/potency of Collab/Seasonal Rare Egg Machines. As such, players were able to have a line up that featured their favourite cards who represented the majority of strong monsters at the time.

Sadly, the landscape of PAD has dramatically shifted due to the almost mandatory inclusion of Collab/Seasonal cards and this makes rolling that much harder as all your favourite stuff is never in the same machine (possible exception are some Seasonal Godfests).

With that being said, there are still numerous strong cards that can be acquired through a Player’s Choice Godfest along with the voting not requiring Facebook as it now done in-game along with players voting three times in different categories.

This article will share the process for which we can vote along with my predictions/cards I feel are relevant at this point in time.

New format

In the past, Player’s Choice Godfests had all possible cards lumped into a single pool and players would naturally select the cards they did not own. In this case it was often 6/7* GFE which would inevitably have worse rolling rates to compensate for their power. Continue reading Player’s Choice Godfest Voting December 2019

Building a PhenomINAl Team for AA2

Introduction

I previously rolled in the Draconic Orchestra event along with the 7-Magic Stone Super Godfest and was magically blessed with both Phenom and Ina . These two can combine to make a truly Phenominal team that is able to waltz through the hardest content available despite being a blob-oriented leader.

The past meta was heavily defined by pure combos as they are simple to match along with having solid multipliers. By comparison, blob leaders tended to fall behind as their multipliers could not justify the harder/more orb hungry activation clause.

With that being said, Phenom x Ina throw all of that out the window as they come high Effective Health, built in Follow Up Damage, natural Resists, bonus combo count, and a strong sub pool.

This article will take a closer look at my own team composition along with my rationale for each card along with strategies for tackling Alt. Arena 2 (AA2). As such, not everything here will be relevant if playing through different content.

Alt. Arena 2 Clear


Alt. Arena 2 mechanics

Alt. Arena 2 is currently the hardest dungeon available in North America (Alt. Arena 3 is coming soon) and offers lucrative rewards from a Monster Experience point of view due to a random Snow Globe + Rainbow Snow Globe Dragon as drops. In all honesty, Arena 5 is better to farm as it is faster, easier, and drops two Killer latents along with special events granting more Rank Experience (from the regular 4x EXP events).

2,500 Day Special Super Godfest + 3 New GFE Review

Introduction

Today marks the debut of the special 7-stone Super Godfest that features higher rolling rates, three new 7-star GFE, +297/level 99 on each roll, and a tough decision for players to make.

The official GungHo NA stream announced this special event along with the promise of the GungHo Collab returning soon but we also know Monster Hunter and eventually Heroine will be back at an undetermined time.

All of these events are quite lucrative and will fight hard for your Magic Stones. This is one nice aspect of being 2-3 months behind JP as we are better able to plan out our stone usage for events that provide us with the most value.

Regardless, this article will provide an overview of this Godfest along with the three new GFE cards.

2,500 Super Godfest overview

Most Super Godfests have a 10-stone cost to roll and by reducing it to 7 may make it more appetizing for players. Of course the rates have been lowered but are still higher compared to a regular Super Godfest when you calculate the percentage of a GFE per stone.
