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

Version 11.2 Update, Ragnarok Dragon Evo, and if Arena 2 is Worth Running

Introduction

Version 11.2 is now live in North America and Europe and brings with it some very minor changes and small additions. I had almost completed my write up for the new Norn evolutions (  ) but it looks like that will have to wait for another day.

Regardless, Version 11.2 provides a revamp of Arena 2 with the introduction of new Latent Awakening Tamadras, minor quality of life improvements, two new Awoken Skills, and a new evolution for Ragnarok Dragon .

This article will touch upon all the new changes introduced along with determining the viability of the changed Arena 2.

Latent awakenings

Latent awakenings are a way to add further customization to your favourite monsters as they can significantly alter the way they function.

Each Monster comes with 5 default slots with the (expensive) opportunity to add a 6th slot. While most Latent awakenings occupy one slot, some will require 2 spaces, but tend to have stronger benefits to compensate.

Monster Point Cards Tier List – A Revised Look and Overview

Just because you have 300,000 MP, it does not mean you MUST buy a card now. Plan it out and wait if lacking any ideal option

Introduction

As part of the large event extravaganza in NA and EU, we will be receiving 390,000 Monster Points over the next few months. For many players, this will their first time passing the 300,000 mark which is required to purchase a card and many will be eager to take the plunge. Conversely, this additional 390,000 may put some players dangerously close to the cap of 999,999 (why is there a cap, I do not understand) and may preemptively force some player’s hands. However, just note that the MP is stored in your mailbox so you don’t actually need to open and cap.

As such, this article will review all the MP cards available (excluding seasonals) to help you better understand their value, if your box can support them, and how they rank against each other.

Ranking the MP cards

It is important to understand how the MP cards stack up against each other as it is my belief that these cards should dramatically improve your monster box and help you progress into the next tier of content.

The following chart ranks the MP cards against each other and takes into consideration their highest evolution and new buffs announced with the JP 5 year stream. I am also working under the presumption you have access to the ideal or as close to the ideal team as possible. Just because the card has strong potential, you need the subs to back them up as they will flop otherwise. The MP cards should also help push you further into end game content and should differ from the type of team you currently have. I will go into more detail further down explaining their uses and value.

To reiterate, this list may be subjective and you should make sure you actually have the cards to support their purchase.

Explanation and justification for each card

While a tier list is helpful for a quick reference, it is best to understand why the cards are ranked as they are. Continue reading Monster Point Cards Tier List – A Revised Look and Overview
