Player’s Choice Godfest Voting Strategies – November 2021

Introduction

The Player’s Choice Godfest (PCGF) makes a triumphant return to North America and gives players the opportunity to vote for their favorite cards to be featured in a special Rare Egg Machine. Historically speaking, Player’s Choice Godfests have been lucrative events as the rolling pool is comprised of the strongest and/or best cards currently available.

With that being said, there is no “best” card to vote for as what is best for your own Monster Box will differ from other players. Furthermore, voting for cards you do not currently own will often provide more value compared to voting for something you already have as it can fill various holes that you would not have been able to address otherwise.

Taking all of this into consideration, I would like to outline my thoughts and commentary on cards that are worth voting for. But regardless of what I say, what is best for your self will often be cards you do not own.

Players will be able to cast a total of three votes in three different categories: Continue reading Player’s Choice Godfest Voting Strategies – November 2021

Fairies & SDKH REM Breakdown – The Odds are Not in your Favour

Introduction

Wrists still bad but the rolling odds are possibly worse.

This event is best for players who have never rolled before and ideally have few of the Samurai 3, ex 5* GFE, or Avalon Drake.

While the top rarity features wonderfully powerful cards, the odds are not in your favour as the rolling rates feature a less than 1/4 chance of acquiring an Event card.

Happy Puzzling!

GungHo Belial Is a Game Changer

Introduction

The GungHo Collab returns to North America and I almost feel it is simply an excuse to bring back the Orb Skin, GH Belial . At this point in time, GH Belial is one of the most over-tuned cards in the game and she is arguably the best universal Cleric available.

This is significant in a meta where the Cleric role is the most important card on a given team due to the prevalence of Binds, Awoken Binds, and Unmatchable mechanics. As such, having a fast charging solution is mandatory in virtually all content. Furthermore, GH Belial provides 4 Skill Boosts Skill Boost, Super Poison Resist , a Massive Healing Solution (+heart x5), and a 5 turn full-Cleric active skill on a non-Transforming card. By not Transforming, players can inherit a Delay/Haste/whatever is needed to solve Floor 1 for their respective team.

While all of this is meaningful, GH Belial cannot be Monster Exchanged for and players will either have to get lucky and roll her or IAP/purchase her Bundle directly. To clarify, GungHo does not support me in any way whatsoever so there is no incentive for me to mislead my readers by saying she is worth purchasing with real life money.

I was fortunate enough to roll one and have the IAP Bundle gifted by Deknas so I own both her Cleric and Dark form and to be honest, it has been incredibly valuable as I now have access to two amazingly powerful cards.

More so the point I wish to express is that if you are IAP-friendly, GH Belial is a meaningful purchase as she will have value for the foreseeable future as she will make your PAD life significantly easier, regardless of the form you choose to pursue.

Mystics & Spectres REM Review and Analysis – January 2021

Introduction

The Mystics and Spectres REM is a brand new series that will have many similarities to the Sin Dragons & Key Heroes event we had a couple of months ago.

This is because both events feature GungHo-owned cards that will be available within the Rare Egg Machine. This means that non-event cards will appear but at the same time, this is worth the risk as the new cards featured are quite strong.

On the downside, there will be no Monster Exchange available for the three top rarity cards who all have to be rolled or purchased via an IAP bundle. As such, if you are wanting any of the higher rarity cards, you will have to commit to numerous rolls.

Regardless of this, this article will outline the pros and cons for each card to give players a better understanding of what to expect in the new Mystics & Spectres Rare Egg Machine.

Farm a Servant, Assassin

Introduction

The Fate Collab is now in full swing and while Rare Egg Machine portion is lackluster (full Review can be found HERE), the Farmable Servant, Assassin  is an incredibly valuable card and should be acquired by most players.

The reason for this is that he functions as both a double Row generator along with possessing a special Button nuke.

Servant, Assassin can be acquired through either 5 Rainbow Event Medals :eventmedal: or by heavily grinding the Fate event dungeon. Either way, one can find Servant, Assassin in the Monster Exchange Event tab for the duration of the Fate event.

Fate/stay night [Heaven’s Feel] Collab Review and Analysis – December 2020

Introduction

The Fate/stay night [Heaven’s Feel] Collab returns to North America and includes several new monsters and evolutions along with various buffs.

Sadly, this is one of the worst events to date as there is relatively little value across all rarities with one of the best cards featured not being available via the Monster Exchange system. As such, I feel that this is an event players should heavily consider skipping as the odds of actually rolling something of value is quite low.

Regardless of this, this article will outline the pros and cons for each card to give players a better understanding of what to expect in the Fate Collab Rare Egg Machine.

  • Most 6-star cards feel outdated already
  • Few cards feel meaningful

Don’t Run 4 Choices! Appreciation Medal Gift Dungeon Until Reading

Introduction

Probably my most click-baity title to date but I was unsure of how to better convey the message of no entering the new 4 Choices! Appreciation Medal Gift Dungeon without understanding what it entails.

This is because this special Gift Dungeon will award players with one Appreciation Medal that can be Monster Exchanged for various 7-star Godfest Exclusives. The catch is players can only clear one of these dungeons along with the dungeon names not actually telling you what possible card their respective Appreciation Medal can be Exchanged for. Also, once one has been cleared, there is no undo button and you are stuck with your current choice.

With this in mind, I would like to take this time to elaborate on my own thought process of which Appreciation Medal should be pursued along with what each one can be Monster Exchanged for.

Just be aware that we have 90 days to clear this dungeon which means you have time to sit and ponder this decision. Furthermore, this dungeon also awards a sizable amount of in game Coins so bring a bonus Coin drop leader if possible.

10 Magic Stone Super Godfest + Sophie Debut Nov 30 – Dec 2

Introduction

Monday features yet another 10 Magic Stone Super Godfest that features the brand new Godfest Exclusive, Sophie along with all the cards who gained new evolutions in the past Update.

This means the Legendary Heroes who have received Pixels forms  such as Pixel Napoleon will be available for the first time in over a year. As such, players have the opportunity to acquire tremendously powerful Killer solutions that may have been otherwise missing from their Monster Box.

With that being said, this Super Godfest features the base 33% chance of rolling any Godfest Exclusive along with two Samurai 3 cards at 1.5% each. As such, if you already have the Legendary Heroes, this Super Godfest may be less appealing.
