Dragonbound & Dragon Caller REM Review and Analysis – March 2019


The Dragonbound & Dragon Caller (DBDC) Rare Egg Machine returns to North America on Monday, March 18 and comes with sizable buffs to the top rarity cards along with Limit Break/Super Awakenings on every card. With that being said, there are no new cards available this time around along with no changes made to the older cards.

With this in mind, it makes it challenging to justify rolling in this event provided you have most of the bottom rarity cards. This is because this event has come around several times and with each repeat (assuming one did roll before), the chances of getting something new diminish. For example, I rolled heavily during the first event and was blessed with an outrageous amounts of Shazels but also picked up all of the 5-star cards. As such, the motivation to roll in subsequent events has drastically gone down as duplicates beyond the second tend to be wasteful.

Regardless, the DBDC REM is arguably the highest value collab/seasonal machine in the game despite the 10-stone cost due to the incredible value at the bottom rarity (only other major contender is Monster Hunter which is coming soon). This is important as nearly every roll will have value to a given player assuming it is their first/second time acquiring that card.

Generally speaking, the DBDC cards are highly specialized and are able to fulfill their respective role wonderfully well. While this means one may not be using them all the time, they are sometimes vital to own for specific content/mechanics as it is hard to replace them otherwise.

For the most part, I would encourage all players to roll in this event assuming they do not own many/most of the bottom rarity cards as they are unique and can help one progress through new content. With that being said, for players who have rolled in the past 3 events, the chances of rolling something new are quite low and may be better skipping as a whole.

This article will summarize each card’s strengths and weaknesses to give you a better understanding of what is in store within this event.
