[First Impressions] Great Witches Weapon Assist Evolutions – Madoo, Reeche, & Zela

Introduction

The North American server is 2-3 months behind Japan and while this is can be problematic, it does give us a chance to fully prepare for any new content coming to Puzzle and Dragons.

The First Impression series is a type of video I produce on my YT YouTube channel and lets me voice my opinions on newly announced content.

For this video, I gave my initial reaction to the Great Witches Weapon Assist  evolutions along with the precedence it sets along with what I feel makes a strong Weapon Assist.

Video commentary

Weapon Assist forms

All Weapon Assist forms are able to transfer over sizable stats due to their high weighted stats.

Madoo:  Fire Row Fire Row Fire Row Fire Row  Imp HP

Reeche:  TPA  Imp HP

Zela:  Wood Row Wood Row Wood Row Wood Row  Imp HP

General thoughts

Weapon Assist  evolutions enable the card to transfer over awakenings when inherited on another monster. The Weapon Assist retains the same base stats and active skill while also permanently committing them to an inherit as the process is irreversible.

For myself, I look for three things in a Weapon Assist: beneficial awakenings, a useful active skill, a long cooldown to act as a better skill delay buffer.

With this in mind, Reeche’s Weapon Assist is the big winner of the three released as she covers all the criteria. This is because she is on-colour and can provide massive stats to Beach Fujin  which means she can take the 7 Combo 45 Super Awakening to bring her personal damage up to 8x.

The main concern I have for this trend of continuously buffing 7* GFE is that GungHo is raising the Powercreep for rare cards. In the past, many teams were locked behind 6* GFE which made many of them inaccessible to the average player even if they had some of the cards.

Over time, the need use 6* GFE has declined and most are now used as trade fodder for rare Collab cards. While owning a 7* GFE is nice and is not mandatory, the fact that GungHo is continuously buffing them (Super Awakenings, Weapon Assist) is somewhat alarming when you consider how little love is given to Pantheon cards. I understand that this is a business but when you realize that the majority of teams run little to no Pantheon cards is alarming.

Conclusion

The Weapon Assist forms the Great Witches gives them even more value and flexibility. With that in mind, it would not be wise to convert any into a Weapon Assist if it is the only copy you own as they provide a great amount of value in their base/evolved forms. Furthermore, the Weapon Assists would also act as a deterent for using them as Trade Fodder for 10-stone events.

Let me know what you think about these Weapon Assist evolutions in the comments below.

Happy Puzzling!

7 Stone Super Godfest is Here and you Should Probably Roll

Introduction

The highly anticipated Lucky 7’s Super Godfest (SGF) has finally arrived in North America! This will most likely be the the best event for the rest of 2018 aside from the return of Dragonbound & Dragon Caller REM (DBDC, coming soon). As such, this imposes a small conundrum for players: spend Magic Stones here or in the revamped DBDC event.

While there is no perfect/universal answer that is applicable to every player, a reasonable word of advice would be roll SGF if one already has a good chunk of DBDC cards (most notably the 5-stars) and roll in DBDC if missing the valuable 5-stars.

Of course, your individual goals, Monster Box, and needs will vary so take that piece of advice with a grain of salt.

Regardless, this is a fantastic place to spend your hard-earned Magic Stones and the following article will explain why this event is better than a regular Godfest despite the 7-stone cost per roll.

Official announcement can be found HERE.

MAKE SURE YOU ACTUALLY PRESS THE SGF MACHINE AND NOT THE REGULAR REM WHEN ROLLING

SGF vs vanilla Godfests

The past several months have given us a general idea of what to expect from regular Godfests: disappointing rates with only approximately 10-11% chance of rolling a 6 or 7-star Godfest Exclusive (GFE) due to the fact that only 17 are featured at a time.

September 30 – October 1 Godfest Review Plus New Ameno & Kami Evolutions

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 6/7* 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 6/7* 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 what essentially amounts to an average roster. This is because there are only 17 GFE featured with what is presumed to be average rolling rates. Furthermore, North America has several meaningful events coming in the near future such as Beach (on Monday), a 7-themed Super Godfest, and the renewed DBDC Collab. As such, it may be best to skip this event all together in anticipation for the more lucrative events.

Regardless, this article will provide an overview of the featured cards along with a reposting of my Saline  review from last time.

As a whole, this Godfest is average but comes right before potentially 3 exciting events: Beach REM, 7’s Super Godfest, and DBDC. Thus, it may be best to save Magic Stones for these events.

My review of the Beach REM is coming soon.

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.

September 30 – October 1 Godfest
6/7* GFE available

         2991 
     
 

6/7* GFE not available

     3233    3370 3236
   3268   

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.

Looking at the past few Godfests, it appears that the trend is now to include two 7* and fifteen 6* GFE which is significantly lower compared to before. We used to have twenty 6* and one 7* which makes the overall rolling rates for hitting any 6/7* GFE lower.

Fenrir Viz  has not been featured for 3 Godfests in a row while Madoo , Dark Metatron , Kaede , and Kanna 3233 have been absent for a second time. Continue reading September 30 – October 1 Godfest Review Plus New Ameno & Kami Evolutions

Introduction

Saturday marks the debut of Madoo  /  during our bi-monthly Godfest and is an interesting card overall. Sadly, this Godfest comes on the heels of a Super Godfest in NA which means most players are out of Magic Stones along with this event being lackluster by comparison.

Furthermore, JP had a special 7-themed Super Godfest that was not tied to a specific date/anniversary which means there is a strong likelihood NA will receive something similar in 2-3 months (no confirmation, just speculation). As such, it would be wise to skip this Godfest in favour of saving Stones for more promising events.

With that being said, this article will summerize this Godfest, review Madoo, along with providing some insight on future JP GFE evolutions that just came out.

Super Godfest is Coming to North America!

Introduction

Super Godfest is making a triumphant return to Puzzle and Dragons and will also feature several seasonal cards to help spice things up. As a whole, a Super Godfest is the best time to roll the Rare Egg Machine as it has the highest total chance of rolling a 6/7* GFE. These cards have become invaluable as both powerful monsters and fodder for trading in via the Monster Exchange system.

This article will further elaborate why a Super Godfest is a wonderful time to spend your Magic Stones along with the anticipated rolling rates.

The Super Godfest occurs for 24 hours
7/31 (Tue), 8:00 PM – 8/1 (Wed), 7:59 PM (UTC-8)

Video commentary

–video coming soon–

Super Godfest vs Godfest

The Rare Egg Machine Renewal has dramatically changed how Godfests function and will no longer feature all of the 6/7* GFE each time. As a result, the overall rolling rates for any of these cards will naturally be lower as several cards are missing. Continue reading Super Godfest is Coming to North America!

Introduction

Saturday marks the return of our bi-monthly Godfests and features the brand new 7-star GFE, Reeche . Reechie is an incredibly powerful card but her debut is alongside a vanilla Godfest and there is strong speculation that a Super Godfest is due in the near future. In fact, this Godfest could be the worst to date from a 6/7-star perspective as there are only 17 total GFE featured and assuming the 0.6/0.5& rolling rates, it will be even harder to acquire any one of them.

A Super Godfest is the best time to acquire a 6-star GFE and the particular one acquired has become less important now due to the Monster Exchange System. The Monster Exchange System enables players to trade in four 6-star GFE for a rare Collab card of their choice. As such, having a larger pool of 6-stars to draw upon has become vital to acquiring what are arguably the strongest cards in the game.

Thus, it is best to wait for the soon-to-come Super Godfest and simply pass on this event all together.

This article will summarize the cards available along with providing insight into Reeche and the featured Celtic Pantheon.

On a side note, Typhon , Ryune , and Sylvie  are absent for the second time in a row.

This Godfest features five less 6* GFE and one more 7* GFE
