Monster Hunter Collab REM Review and Analysis – October 2019

Introduction

The Monster Hunter Collab will be returning to North America for the third time in 2019 on Monday, October 7. This may feel like a bit of an overload, but it is one of the single best events to roll in for the vast majority of players.

This is because it is home to some of the most valuable Weapon Assists in the game along with tremendous value at the 5-star rarity. This helps lessen the pain of rolling a Gold Egg as some are chase cards due to their Weapon Assists and 60% resistance to Blind Blind Resist, Jammer Jammer Resist, or Poison Poison resist mechanics.

On the other hand, more veteran players may have less desire to roll as they may have already acquired most/all the 5-stars along with numerous dupes. This can make it challenging to continue rolling if already saturated.

The following article will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of all the featured REM cards to give players a better understanding of whether or not Magic Stones should be spent. With that being said, if you have rolled little or none at all thus far, it will almost always be a good idea to do so now.

Monster Hunter Collab Review and Analysis – January 2018

**All pulls will cost 10 Magic Stones**
Review of the Hunters will be done separately

Introduction

The Monster Hunter Collab is one of the most highly anticipated Collaborations to come back to North America as the cards push the envelope of Powercreep along with having stellar artwork.

However, Monster Hunter Collab comes with a higher price tag of 10 Magic Stones per roll along but has surprisingly reasonable rates for the top prizes.

Prior to the release of official rolling rates, players have guesstimated rolling rates based on large sample sizes as shown below.

Taken from Padx for the previous event which was based on 1276 players and 4770 rolls. http://bit.ly/2sLUi8O

With that being said, the strongest leader from the Monster Hunter Collab is best when paired with other cards so you don’t technically need to roll him.

Generally speaking, you can measure the overall strength of a Collab by the value the lowest-tier prizes as they will be the most common cards you will acquire when playing as Non/light IAP. As such, you should examine the 5-star rolls as that is most likely what you will be blessed with.

All of the cards in the Monster Hunter Collab have exceptionally high base stats for their rarity and that is taken into consideration as they have some sort of offset to keep them balanced compared to other REM cards. Finally, all the 5-star cards will sell for 15,000 Monster Points and is tied for the most efficient Magic Stone to MP ratio alongside the Heroine and Dragonbound & Dragon Caller events.

Finally, the vast majority of the featured cards now have a new Assist Evolution which adds more value and versatility.

Male and Female Hunter Review – Monster Hunter Collab

Introduction

The Monster Hunter Collab is in full swing along with a flurry of questions as to which Male and Female Hunter you should pursue. While there will often be a best option from a general point of view, you have to take your own Monster Box into consideration as each scenario is unique. As such, you should take my recomendations with a grain of salt and pursue the path that helps you the most.

All players above rank 50 will receive a free Male Hunter and by completing the special dungeon with the smaller team size, you will also gain a free Female Hunter.

How to acquire Female Hunter

Hunters at a glance

There are plenty of valuable resources floating around the interwebs with the Reddit community leading the charge for countless Puzzle and Dragons content. This helpful chart will essentially give you a TLDR version that was created by tb_ax:


Generally speaking, this flowchart will apply to the majority of players; however, I do want you to still exercise your own creative judgement based on your personal scenario (I personally disagree with the Female Hunter flow). Additional Male and Female Hunters can be purchased for 200,000 Monster Points.

Despite the fact that all the Hunters have low weighted stats, they are actually quite well rounded due to the fact that Coop Boost Multiplayer Bonus will provide you with 50% more HP/ATK/RCV. Furthermore, some of the Hunters require coop mode to optimally function through their leader skill.

Finally, all Hunters can be used as assistants via Skill Inheritance. Continue reading Male and Female Hunter Review – Monster Hunter Collab

Introduction

The Monster Hunter Collab is one of the most highly anticipated Collaberations to come to NA/EU as the cards push the envelope of Powercreep along with having stellar artwork.

However, Monster Hunter Collab comes with a higher price tag of 10 Magic Stones per roll along with having distressingly low rates for the top prizes.

Generally speaking, you can measure the overall strength of a Collab by the value the lowest-tier prizes as they will be the most common cards you will acquire when playing as Non/light IAP. As such, you should examine the 5-star rolls as that is most likely what you will be blessed with.
