Efficient Cosmic Trinity Farming with Mantastic and Fantastic

Introduction

Cosmic Trinity is one of the hardest dungeons in the game as it features 6 floors of randomly spawned Descend Bosses that gain increasingly higher stats. Furthermore, if you are able to survive the randomness of each floor, you will be greeted by one of three incredibly challenging bosses on floor 7.

It is both the randomness, massive damage output, and health of the each floor that makes Cosmic Trinity challenging. However, if you have well invested teams with the appropriate Killers and inherits, you will be able to overcome the majority of floors and even cheese your way through the final floor.

However, even the most prepared teams can face certain death if the wrong spawns do appear so it can be challenging to have a perfect clear rate.

With all that being said, I have devised an efficient set up for my two account that enables me to easily bypass all 3 final boss encounters with Cthulhu  and Nyarlathotep  being killed in one or two turns.

Fine print

This is not the only efficient set up that can be created but is the best I can put together given my two Monster Boxes. I still require some stalling on the first floor, but given Dark Metatron’s durability, it is rarely a problem and is even easier when I play with just myself.

New Split Evolutions Review/Era of Follow Up Attack – August 16, 2017

Introduction

The Norns comprise three older Godfest Exclusives: Urd , Skuld , and Verdandi  who all possess powerful board changers but have slowly fallen out of favour due to the inability to successfully use on current meta teams. However, with the release of their new split evolutions, they gain dramatic improvements to their capabilities as a sub due to the addition of 7 Combo 45 and Follow Up Attack  awakenings.

These two awakenings are some of the most powerful ones currently available as it can dramatically shift your playstyle and strategies when playing through challenging content. Furthermore, both 7 Combo and Follow Up Attack help comprise what I like to call the “Holy Trinity” of powerful awakenings with Guard Break  being the third.

In addition, all the Sonias  received their own split evolutions along with Denebola  and Zuoh .

This article will examine the Norns new found viability as well as providing advice on how to maximize their potential. In addition, I will touch upon the other new split evolutions to better aid you in your decision making of which one to pursue.

The Holy Trinity

The Holy Trinity of awakenings (45  ) are the three most powerful traits a monster can have. However, due to their relatively young age, they are not commonly seen across many cards. Thus, cards that do possess at least one will gain significant value while we wait for cards/evolutions to trickle in from JP.

Monster Point Card Flowchart and Buying Advice – August 13, 2017

Introduction

GungHo has been amazingly generous with the free daily Monster Points and many players are now able to make their very first purchase. However, Powercreep has shifted the landscape of what constitutes a formidable leader and you may actually be better off saving your Monster Points for new cards to be released if none of the current (or soon to be released) ones bring significant value to your box.

This article will be mostly focused around the flowchart I have prepared. The content is based on recommendations that hold true today and things may change if new cards/awakenings/meta shifts occur.

The flowchart

The following flowchart is designed to take into consideration all the current content released in JP. However, like tier lists, these recommendations should be taken with a grain of salt as your individual situation may dictate a different outcome.

Clicking the following image will enlarge it and open a new tab.

I wrote an older article that encompasses some of the more ideal/required subs for Ra Dragon and Dark Athena which can be found HERE. Below is a copy/paste of what comprises a more core team for these two leaders and holds relatively true today: Continue reading Monster Point Card Flowchart and Buying Advice – August 13, 2017

June Bride Collab Overview – August 2017

Introduction

I spent the past (BC long) weekend with my family and did not have access to a desktop to write a review for the June July August Collab. As such, this will mostly be a quick summary of the cards and what to expect when rolling.

This post will be significantly more brief compared to other reviews due to time constraints.

Last year, the main focus of these cards was to help bolster your Myr Miru teams. However, Myr has been steadily falling out of favour, but thankfully, Yog-Sothoth  is the new premier light leader who can benefit from many of the featured Monsters.

New Evolutions August 3, 2017 Review

Introduction

Last night, GungHo NA/EU did a surprise release of numerous new evolutions for existing cards that now present players who own the cards to make some tough decisions as to which path they pursue.

For the most part, these new evolutions follow a different path compared to the existing ones and you must choose either option A or B. For the most part, most of these paths are relatively balanced and it is up to you to decide whether or nor the new form is worth pursuing.

This article will examine the pros and cons of the new forms compared to the existing evolutions to better help you decide which route to pursue.

Video commentary

Foreword on evolutions

Puzzle and Dragons possesses one of the more complex evolution trees for video games as some monsters have convoluted paths.

Generally speaking, a Reincarnated evolution will be the strongest form a card can assume, but it must go through an Awoken evolution beforehand. Reincarnated and Awoken forms have different base skills compared to their starting evolution and is often stronger by comparison but may also have no natural skill up available. However, the Reincarnated form gains 1,000 weighted stats, a significantly more powerful leader skill, and triple typing. Continue reading New Evolutions August 3, 2017 Review

Flight of the Dragon Lords Godfest Review and Analysis

Godfest basics

When making the decision to roll or save your magic stones, you need to determine if the featured pantheons can benefit or complement your teams. Chasing for one specific monster is unwise as you will most likely be disappointed and should ideally have Godfests that overlap with many target cards. Remember all monsters that come out of the REM will qualify for Skill Inheritance so do not be too hasty when selling dupes. For a more detailed team building help, please refer to my Popular Leader’s and their Full Sub List Post which is in the process of being updated. Lastly, to find more information about a specific pantheon or monster, refer to my Master List to better refine your search. If you are considering to purchase any of the Monster Point cards, please refer to my updated Tier List for help and advice.

I also encourage you to visit my discord Discord server as it is full of knowledgeable and friendly people.

Introduction

The Flight of the Dragon Lords Godfest features the first ever 6x GFE rates for NA/EU along with +50 to a random stat to all rolls. While 6x is a new milestone, it comes with no featured pantheons along with a questionable 2x rates carnival.

However, GungHo will also be tempting players with two brand new Godfest Exclusives: Cthugha  and the all mighty Yog-Sothoth .

While Cthugha offers an interesting kit, the real prize and focus will be on Yog-Sothoth who is capable of leading one of the strongest teams in the game that has a low skill cap, modest orb requirements, and outrageous damage potential combined with a defensive multiplier.

Ranking the cards – Pantheons & GFE

These rankings I assign cards are my own and take into consideration the card’s value as a leader, sub, inherit, and possibly any niche role they fulfill. In order to rank in the highest tier, the card has to excel in their respective role and cannot feasibly be replaced by anyone else. This can also be thought of as a Best in Slot card and tends to have applications on the top tier teams.

Despite my best to remain neutral, there is always the potential for bias and you need to be able to examine a card and determine if it can benefit your unique Monster Box and situation. Continue reading Flight of the Dragon Lords Godfest Review and Analysis

Yog-Sothoth Review and Analysis

Introduction

Yog-Sothoth  is one of the most highly anticipated Godfest Exclusives to be released as they are without a doubt overpowering. They easily push the envelope of Powercreep as they have an incredibly easy to activate leader skill along with somewhat outrageous damage output.

While leaders like Anubis 3385 and Kushinadahime  have the potential to achieve amazing damage output, they are somewhat gatekeeped behind significant player skill and having ideal boards. As such, they are sometimes out of reach for the average player whereas Yog-Sothoth will be simple to play by comparison.

This article will examine his strengths and weaknesses along with his uses/applications and some team building guidelines.
