[Review] Cotton & Ney Buffs, New Ryune & Sylvie Evo, and More

Introduction

Last night, GungHo NA dropped a large update to existing characters that include huge buffs to all the Neys  and Cottons  along with Mega Awoken Evolutions for Ryune  and Sylvie .

These changes give players the opportunity to further their progression as Cotton has now become an incredible powerhouse while Ryune can act as an end game leader that is somewhat similar to Beach Barbara & Julie .

In addition to this, GungHo NA also announced that all players will receive 1 special pull at an NA-exclusive machine where one of the five 7* GFE (aka Witches     ) will come out!

All of these changes/announcements are making PAD incredibly exciting and November promises to be the best month to date. If you wish to read more about the upcoming November event including the free 100 Magic Stones, please refer to my previous article HERE.

Official notes on all the buffs and evolutions can be found on GungHo NA’s Facebook HERE.

Voice awakenings

The Voice  awakenings grant certain cards the ability to have a voice line when using their active skill in a dungeon. While this is a cosmetic effect, some players may feel upset that it takes up an awakening slot. Thankfully, it does not actually take away from the monster’s original power as GungHo has condensed either Skill Boost Skill Boost, Time Extend Time Extend, or double 50% bind Immunity Bind Immune into their stronger form   .

[First Impressions] DBDC Buffs + New Cards & Sonia, Ney, Cotton, and More Buffs

Introduction

On my YT YouTube channel, I often release First Impression Videos that summarize my initial thoughts on new content being released in JP if it is significant/meaningful overall.

As such, I decided to chime in my thoughts on the new Dragonbound & Dragon Caller cards along with significant buffs to existing cards. While this video can be educational, it is also an indication that DBDC will be coming back to North America in 2-3 months. As such, it may be wise to save your Magic Stones as it is arguably the highest value event in Puzzle and Dragons.

Video


I forgot to mention that players can use the Monster Exchange to acquire 7* DBDC cards by trading in 5 rare Collab cards (7*+). This is an outrageously high cost and will not be applicable for the vast majority of the player base. With that being said, it can help those who have either been lucky or rolled excessively clean out their unwanted rare cards for something truly valuable.

Conclusion

Dragonbound & Dragon Caller should be coming back to North America in 2-3 months time so one may wish to start saving Magic Stones for this exciting event.

Let me know what you think about the new cards along with sizable buffs to Sonia, Ney, and Cotton.

Happy Puzzling!

June 16-17 Godfest Featuring Evolved Neys

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* 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* 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 the Evolved Neys as an added prize. This will bump up the total number of featured 6/7* Godfest Exclusives (GFE) to 25 as opposed to 21 from the previous Godfest.

The additional 4 cards should increase the total rolling rates for the GFE which may make this the strongest non-Super Godfest event. With that being said, the evolved Neys should have a similar rolling rate (speculation) as Zela due to them coming out as 7-stars.

Official announcement can be found HERE.

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.

June 16 – 17 Godfest
6/7* GFE available

      3391 3392 
3236 3370  2991   3268   
    

6/7* GFE not available

     3233 Scheat   

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. Continue reading June 16-17 Godfest Featuring Evolved Neys

5th Year Anniversary 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 5th year Anniversary Godfest comes quite quickly after the most recent Godfest and features all of the Godfest Exclusives at surprise, surprise, 5x rates. Also, it mirrors the idea of the Candy Cornucopia Godfest of having specific cards featured at 10x rates on certain days.

However, the 5th Year Anniversary builds a stronger Godfest as we have +30 stats as a collateral benefit while also occuring alongside a special no-Silver carnival.

This no-Silver carnival guarantees all rolls come out as gold or higher which can potentially boost overall rolling rates. Just bear in mind you can still roll the evolved forms of the Silver eggs.

Perhaps this no-Silver carnival helps counterout the fact that there are no featured Pantheon cards but this is certainly better overall compared to Candy Cornucopia.

This article will include the usual tier list as well as a brief review of Kamimusubi  and Takamimusubi .

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 5th Year Anniversary Godfest Review and Analysis

Introduction

The Candy Cornucopia Godfest occurs on Halloween along with the debut of 2 new Godfest Exclusives. However, the scariest thing will not be wildly dressed Trick-or-Treaters knocking at your door but 5x roll rates for GFE and no featured Pantheons.

Having no featured Pantheons tends to result in poorer overall rolling rates as it is my understanding that every card has a base rolling value which is then multiplied during Godfests. Thus, having fewer cards featured means silvers and less than desirable cards take up a larger portion of the rolls.

On the brightish side, all GFE will come out at level 50 along with occurring alongside the Wisedragons & Heroic Warriors carnival. Sadly, this carnival is lackluster with 2x rates and there are no plus eggs as collateral benefit when rolling. Thankfully, two select 6* GFE will feature 10x rates.

This article will include the usual tier list as well as a brief review of Kamimusubi  and Takamimusubi .

Introduction

The Autumn Equinox Godfest features 6x rates for Pantheon and GFE cards along with an overlapping guaranteed 5-star Carnival. This means that every roll will result in a gold or diamond egg; however, you can still acquire evolved forms of silver, but this is a meaningful boost overall.

In addition, all rolls will come with +50 to a random stat. If you wish to read more about Ney, please refer to my full review HERE.

On a sidenote, I am horribly swamped in real life due to packing and moving in a few weeks along with trying to find a new place to live so this article will be somewhat brief.

Monster Bootcamp Part 2 Godfest Review and Analysis

Introduction

The Monster Bootcamp Part 2 Godfest features the first 7x rates for GFE as well as the debut of Ney .

Ney is a brand new 6-star GFE who features the first ever 5-evolution path that results in a uniquely powerful card who can be utilized by every single player. I go into more detail about Ney in my full review HERE.

Unfortunately, this Godfest features no additonal Plus Eggs with each roll and instead all cards come out at level 50. To poorly entice players, each roll will come with 1 free Tamadra. Finally, there will be no featured Pantheon cards which may result in overall lower rates for featured cards.
