September 30 – October 1 Godfest Review Plus New Ameno & Kami Evolutions

Godfest Basics

The format for Godfests has been dramatically changed through their REM Renewal along with Full Disclosure of Rolling Rates. These changes dramatically improve your chances of rolling a specific card as the pool of available monsters is significantly smaller as only a portion of the all possible monsters are featured at a given time. This is great news for players as you are better able to focus your Magic Stones on key cards.

Godfests no longer advertise “rate increases” and instead Highlighted specific cards along with 6/7* Godfest Exclusives being available. As such, these events are the best time to roll the REM as the current meta is heavily favouring these rare and elusive monsters.

Rolling rates may change or vary with each Godfest event and some 6/7* GFE may have higher rolling rates. Always check the rolling rates before proceeding.

Introduction

Saturday  marks the return of our bi-monthly Godfests and features what essentially amounts to an average roster. This is because there are only 17 GFE featured with what is presumed to be average rolling rates. Furthermore, North America has several meaningful events coming in the near future such as Beach (on Monday), a 7-themed Super Godfest, and the renewed DBDC Collab. As such, it may be best to skip this event all together in anticipation for the more lucrative events.

Regardless, this article will provide an overview of the featured cards along with a reposting of my Saline  review from last time.

As a whole, this Godfest is average but comes right before potentially 3 exciting events: Beach REM, 7’s Super Godfest, and DBDC. Thus, it may be best to save Magic Stones for these events.

My review of the Beach REM is coming soon.

Godfest overview

Unlike Godfests of the past, only some 6/7* GFE will be featured. If they are listed as unavailable, you will be unable to roll them during the event.

September 30 – October 1 Godfest
6/7* GFE available

         2991 
     
 

6/7* GFE not available

     3233    3370 3236
   3268   

You ideally wish to line up a Godfest that overlaps with several key targets to improve your overall chances of success. Thus, it may be advantageous to wait for a more opportune Godfest if the current one does not feature enough key targets.

Based on the revealed rolling rates of previous Godfests, 6* GFE will have 0.6% hit rate whereas the 7* had 0.5%. With that being said, some GFE may feature an increased rate and you simply have to check the displayed rolling rates each time.

Looking at the past few Godfests, it appears that the trend is now to include two 7* and fifteen 6* GFE which is significantly lower compared to before. We used to have twenty 6* and one 7* which makes the overall rolling rates for hitting any 6/7* GFE lower.

Fenrir Viz  has not been featured for 3 Godfests in a row while Madoo , Dark Metatron , Kaede , and Kanna 3233 have been absent for a second time. Continue reading September 30 – October 1 Godfest Review Plus New Ameno & Kami Evolutions

Meta Trends in Puzzle and Dragons

Introduction

Meta is an abbreviation for Most Efficient Team Available and is essentially a term used to indicate if a card is currently strong in this day and age. However, the meta is not fixed and is ever evolving and changing. Thus, what may have been strong 6 months ago may have fallen out of favour due to new evolutions, awakenings, or new dungeon requirements.

This article will be examining the current state of affairs in Puzzle and Dragons and the direction I foresee the game heading.

PAD is a Puzzling game at heart

No matter how long or how much Puzzle and Dragons develops, it will still be at core a puzzling/matching game. Thus, there are only so many boards one can solve/match before it can become tiresome. As a result, GungHo has introduced new matching requirements and larger board sizes.

New matching requirements constitutes anything that goes beyond matching a vanilla set of 3. At first we had mass attack and then awakenings were introduced along with a wide variety of leader skills.

However, there are only so many different twists you can impose on matching and there is a certain degree of recycling older styles over time. As a result, it is not uncommon to see similarities over the years in terms of the matching strategy. Continue reading Meta Trends in Puzzle and Dragons
