Super Godfests are special 10-Stone events where players will have at least a 1/3 or 33% chance of acquiring any Godfest Exclusive. For the sake of value, I will always lump in the Samurai 3 series into the pool of “good” (aka GFE) pool as their Weapon Assists are some of the best.
As such, the current Super Godfest running from January 31 – February 2 is entirely average and is nearly 10% lower chances for acquiring a GFE or Samurai 3 card compared to the recent Player’s Choice Godfest.
With this in mind, I would be most inclined to skip this event as it is nothing special and we will have essentially a similar event featuring a tiny bit above 1/3 GFE rates on a regular basis.
On a different note, I miss the days of when GHNA named their Super Godfests.
Player’s Choice Godfests (PCGF) are one of the more exciting events to come to PAD as it allows players to vote for their favourite cards with the most popular ones appearing in a special REM.
This in turn should produce a strong rolling roster as the more desirable cards will be featured. Furthermore, all players will be able to vote once per category with the top voted cards being featured at a later date.
As a whole, I like how GungHo has now created three separate voting categories as it ensures a more even distribution of rare/valuable cards but it is not without fault as 40 Pantheon cards can be voted in along with the 7-star GFE sharing their pool with the Samurai 3 Pantheon.
Regardless, this article will highlight my thoughts for voting within the PCGF along with listing various possible cards to vote for. Just bear in mind that my advice has may not always be 100% applicable to your situation and you should be voting for what will benefit you the most.
How to vote
Voting within the PCGF has become significantly easier as it can be completely done within the app and no third party sites are involved.
Monday features yet another 10 Magic Stone Super Godfest that features the brand new Godfest Exclusive, Sophie along with all the cards who gained new evolutions in the past Update.
This means the Legendary Heroes who have received Pixels forms such as Pixel Napoleon will be available for the first time in over a year. As such, players have the opportunity to acquire tremendously powerful Killer solutions that may have been otherwise missing from their Monster Box.
With that being said, this Super Godfest features the base 33% chance of rolling any Godfest Exclusive along with two Samurai 3 cards at 1.5% each. As such, if you already have the Legendary Heroes, this Super Godfest may be less appealing.
Today marks the debut of another 10 Magic Stone Super Godfest which features a healthy roster of desirable 7-star Godfest Exclusives. Like the past few Super Godfests, this event will feature a 33% GFE rate while also including 2 Samurai 3 Pantheon cards to bring the total of “desirable” rolls to 36%.
This has become the norm for Super Godfests as most feature at least a 1/3 chance for GFE and it now becomes a matter of lining up as many desirable cards as possible in a single event.
As such, the value of any Super Godfest will hinge on how much you value the featured GFE as it will return on a regular basis.
–video coming soon–
Rolling line up
7* GFE (1.5% each, 16.5% total)
6* GFE (1.5% each, 16.5% total) **
Samurai 3 (1.5% each, 3% total)
Other Pantheon cards (1.6% each, 64% total)
*Note, Cotton comes in one of her 5 Evolved forms but the total chance of rolling any Cotton is 1.5%.
To roll or not to roll
Generally speaking, Super Godfests cost 10 Magic Stones and feature at worst, 1/3 chance for any Godfest Exclusive. As such, it is most advantageous to try and line up as many key cards for your Monster Box as possible before shaking the REM’s hand.
In the case of this Super Godfest, it features the same rolling odds as a standard Super Godfest while also including a modest array of the newer 7-star GFEs which in turn may make it more appealing. Cards such as Menoa , Remu , Norza , along with Shelling Ford and Fagan Rai for their Weapons are all currently powerful cards to own. With that being said, this can still be seen as a relatively generic Super Godfest as there are no Seasonal cards featured nor exceptionally high rates for GFE.
As such, the decision of whether or not to roll will come down to your own individual Monster Box and goals. Building upon that, it is important to determine whether or not you are rolling to advance your position or the concept of Need over Greed.
What I mean by this is determining whether or not rolling here will actually help you clear more content compared to what you can right now. For example, if you are currently stuck on Arena 5, you need to determine what is holding you back: is it a lack of experience and active skill management or is it because you are using a team with many holes in it?
If you are failing due to issues stemming from your own orb matching skills or active skill management, rolling may not actually help, especially if you have a solid team already. On the flip side, if you have hit a metaphorical wall and are currently being held back by the depth of your Monster Box, rolling can be advantageous assuming the featured cards can help you.
If you would like further reading on this Need over Greed topic, feel free to check out my Though Process for Rolling or Monster Exchanging article HERE.
The current Super Godfest features a 64% Pantheon rolling rate along with a healthy spread of newer 7-star GFE or those that have significant value. While this does sound appealing, one must remember that this is a relatively standard Super Godfest due to no Sasonals nor stronger rolling rates.
As such, the decision of whether or not to roll will come down to your own Monster Box and goals for PAD. With that being said, it is never a “bad” thing to roll in Super Godfests as they always feature 1/3 chance to acquire a GFE which are either tremendously powerful or used as Trade Fodder.
With that being said, let me know what you think about this event in the comments below and whether or not you plan on rolling. If you did roll, let me know how it went.
Another Super Godfest has descended upon North America not even 2 weeks after Remu’s debut that shares the same rolling rates and distribution of Godest Exclusives and Pantheons.
As a whole, Super Godfests have become the norm with at least 1/3 chance to acquire any Godfest Exclusive (6 or 7-star) for the price of 10 Magic Stones per roll. This has become the current baseline in which we measure the potential value of a Super Godfest with better events featuring any combination of higher rolling rates, rarer non-GFE cards such as the Samurai 3 Pantheon, or featuring high rarity Seasonal cards like Valentine’s Ideal .
In the case of this current Super Godfest, it features essentially 1/3 GFE rates along with two Samurai 3 cards which brings the total chance for acquiring any other Pantheon card at 64%.
As such, this is not an exceptional Godfest from a rolling point of view and at least from my own point of view, a weaker roster of Godfest Exclusives as many of the 7-stars featured are Redeemable from an Event Medal or older.
With that being said, the featured line up may be exceptionally valuable for your own individual needs which in turn can give justification to roll. Furthermore, newer accounts can almost always benefit from rolling in a Super Godfest as many of the Pantheon cards can at least function as transitional cards for your current teams.
On a side note, I miss having actual names for Super Godfests.
–video coming soon–
Remu has only been in North America for 10 days or so and I am just including the same copy-paste breakdown of her from my previous Godfest article:
Super Godfests have become a regular part of our PAD life as it will offer at least 1/3 chance to acquire any Godfest Exclusive (6 or 7-star) for the price of 10 Magic Stones per roll. With this baseline in mind, the spicier Super Godfests are those that feature any combination of higher rolling rates, the inclusion of high rarity Seasonal cards (eg. Valentine’s Ideal ), or featuring rarer non-GFE cards such as the Samurai 3 Pantheon.
In the case of the current Super Godfest, it features essentially 1/3 GFE rates along with two Samurai 3 cards which brings the total chance for acquiring any Pantheon card at 64%.
As a whole, this does not scream exceptional value but this Super Godfest includes many of the newer Godfesrt Exclusives, but most importantly the debut of Remu .
Remu is going to be the new hot Transforming Fire leader who pairs beautifully with Dante along with two of their key subs coming from the current Sacred Relic event.
With this in mind, this Super Godfest may be worth rolling in if you have the capacity to field a strong Remu team and did not pull Dante. Furthermore, Norza , Menoa , Grandis , and Shelling Ford are featured who all bring something valuable to any Monster Box.
Friday marks the debut of the brand new 7-star Godfest Exclusive (GFE), Menoa during a Super Godfest. New cards are always exciting and in the case of Menoa, she is akin to Ney and Cotton in that all of them have 6 distinct forms which will cover all 5 attributes.
As such, Menoa offers wonderful flexibility and it is important to choose the form that will best help your individual Monster Box.
Unfortunately, her debut Super Godfest is nothing special as it features the standard 1/3 GFE rates along with the regular +297, max level and awakenings. With this in mind, I would be hesitant in spending Magic Stones here as stronger events will eventually come around.
Regardless, this article will highlight each of Menoa’s 6 different forms to give players a better understanding of her potential.

Debut Super Godfest
At this point in time, 10-Magic Stone Super Godfests have become the norm and the routinely features approximately 1/3 chances for pulling any Godfest Exclusive along with miscellaneous other fluff benefits. When this was first introduced, these rolling rates and additional benefits were unparalleled but they have now become the norm/baseline in which we evaluate Super Godfests.
Taking this into consideration, the upcoming Menoa debut Super Godfest is nothing special aside of her being included in the line up. It does not feature higher than average rolling rates, no Seasonal cards, nor the promise of ex Godfest Exclusives, just the standard 1/3 chance for a GFE and 2/3 Pantheon.
As a result, I feel that this Godfest can be easily skipped unless you are a brand new player who has a fledgling Monster Box, but even then, you could probably wait a couple of weeks for another event as Super Godfests cannot get any worse than this 1/3 rate.

Today marks the debut of Nelle and Fasca who are incredibly powerful Godfest Exclusives who continue to push the limits of Transformation cards. At this point in time, Transforming cards tend to be stronger compared to other alternatives because they must go through the hassle of bringing enough Skill Boosts in order to function.
Furthermore, these cards also solidify the notion that asymmetrical pairings are the way of the future. This is because the two strongest mechanics currently available are 7×6 and Auto Follow Up Damage. With this in mind, no single leader can bring both mechanics to the table at this point in time so players would ideally be using two different leaders.
This has benefit of being able to have more opportunities to use top-tier leaders as one does not actually have to own that respective card. Unfortunately, it may also lead to issues with Team Building as both Nelle and Fasca have various restrictions but also provide natural 7×6 boards.
With that being said, I wish to take a closer look at these two new powerful cards that are debuting during the current Super Godfest.
–video coming soon–
Active: For 1 turn, increase combo count by 1; Changes to [5842 ] for the duration of the dungeon (18 -> 18 turn CD)
Leader Skill: [Board becomes 7×6] 4x ATK and reduce damage taken by 25% when 8 or more combos
Awakenings: Super Awakenings: – Typing: Attacker / Devil Available Killers: Weighted Stats (Limit Break): 552 (-) HP 2510 (-) / ATK 1325 (-) / RCV 109 (-) Weapon Assist:
Base Fasca is similar to Nelle in that she also provides a 7×6 board along with requiring 18 Skill Boosts in order to Transform. While Fasca does have a typing restriction post-Transform, all she has to do is match 8 or more combos which should be incredibly easy on a larger board.
As such, she can favourably pair with significantly more leaders along with a less restrictive pool of subs compared to Nelle + Yugi.
Great Witch of the Radiant Wings, Fasca (Transformed)
Active: Reduce unable to match orbs effect by 9999 turns; Remove all binds and awoken skill binds; For 1 turn, increase orb move time by 2 seconds (5 -> 5 turn CD)
Leader Skill: 4x ATK & RCV and 1.5x HP for Attacker type; 4x ATK and reduce damage taken by 25% when 8 or more combos [2.25/256/16/43.75%]
Awakenings: Super Awakenings: – Typing: Attacker / Devil Available Killers: Weighted Stats (Limit Break): 1406 (-) HP 6500 (-) / ATK 3350 (-) / RCV 258 (-)
Easy to activate Damage Reduction
Incredibly powerful 5-turn active
Clear unable to match orbs
Full bind/awoken bind clear
+2 seconds orb movement time
Numerous leader pairings
Only requires combos to activate
Harder to orb troll/not activate
+3s orb movement time ( x3)
High personal damage
18 SB is on the lower end
Future Alice pairing
Flies around on a broom
Must use Attacker types
18 SB to Transform
Is still a hurdle
Fasca features the same 18 Skill Boost requirement as Nelle in order to Transform but is significantly easier to team build overall. This is because her leader skill requires Attacker types but more importantly, fully activates from 8 or more combos. This is a key distinction because it allows Fasca to asymmetrically pair with basically any leader as there is no colour requirement and only combos are needed.
With this in mind, players should view her as a 7×6 leader who needs Attackers along with a total of 18 Skill Boosts. Furthermore, Fasca’s own personal damage is incredibly high as she features 7 Combo , 10 Combo , and VDP . This places her on-par with Bradamante as both cards achieve 25x personal damage with a 3×3 Box and 10 combos which should be significantly easier on the larger 7×6 board.
In regards to team building, Skill Boosts are a prized awakening but it really comes down to who you pair with. For example, utilizing Dark Karin will favour a Light based team but utilizing Yugi (he is off-type) means players can utilize Bakura (and his Weapon Assist ) for all your damage needs. Conversely, pairing with Haohmaru yields a 7×6 + Auto Follow Up Damage team that is basically an upgraded Tifa x Haohmaru.
One future pairing will be Alice Sword Art Online (should return soon) who can be traded for and comes with 4 Skill Boosts, natural Tape Resist , and 1 Auto Follow Up Damage when matching 3 or more Light combos.
Players could also use Chidori , Kamen Rider Super 1 , or Lilia but you can see where this is going: any leader who is ideally an Attacker can pair with Fasca.
Weapon Assist: Active: Reduce unable to match orbs effect by 9999 turns; Remove all binds and awoken skill binds; For 3 turns, 2x RCV; For 3 turns, 2x orb move time (15 -> 15 turn CD)
Only Weapon to provide 5 Enhanced Light orbs
Reduce unable to match orbs
Bind/Awoken Bind clear
Does almost everything
Harder to justify converting a single copy of Fasca to this
Faska’s Weapon Assist also provides a blistering 5 Enhanced Light orbs along with an amazingly powerful utility active.
The main idea with sprinkling Orb Enhances for a given team is to provide additional damage for every card and is usually pursued after all Resists are taken card of.
If GungHo had stopped at just the awakenings, this would still be a strong Weapon Assist but the fact that it includes one of the best utility actives is amazing.
This active is able to cancel out unable to match orb effects, full bind/awoken bind clear, an RCV buff, Time Extend buff. Each component is helpful in their own right, but having all 4 aspects being represented is something special. With this active, players can counter 4 different metrics and will greatly ease team building requirements.
While there is no question to the power Fasca’s Weapon Assist provides, the largest hurdle will be acquiring her and being able to forgo using her Transforming evolutions.
Active: Change the bottom row to Dark orbs; Changes to [5845 ] for the duration of the dungeon (18 -> 18 turn CD)
Leader Skill: [Board becomes 7×6] 4x ATK and reduce damage taken by 25% when matching 7 or more connected Dark orbs
Awakenings: Super Awakenings: – Typing: Balance / Devil Available Killers: Weighted Stats (Limit Break): 553 (-) HP 2610 (-) / ATK 1120 (-) / RCV 205 (-) Weapon Assist:
Base Nelle requires 18 Skill Boosts in order to Transform into a incredibly powerful mono Dark leader who relies on matching 7 or more connected Dark orbs. What makes her quite special is that she is able to naturally provide a 7×6 board which prevents the need to utilize leader swap shenanigans but at the same time, has a restrictive sub pool and asymmetrical pairings.
Great Witch of the Mysterious Beasts, Nelle (Transformed)
Active: For 1 turn, bypass damage absorb shield effects; Change the far left column to Dark orbs and change the far right column to Heal orbs (6 -> 6 turn CD)
Leader Skill: 2x all stats for Balanced type; Increase orb movement time by 2 seconds; 9x ATK and reduce damage taken by 25% when matching 7 or more connected Dark orbs [4/324/4/43.75%]
Awakenings: Super Awakenings: – Typing: Balance / Devil Available Killers: Weighted Stats (Limit Break): 1407 (-) HP 7020 (-) / ATK 2840 (-) / RCV 410 (-)
Provides Damage Reduction
Incredibly strong 6-turn active
Favourably pairs with Yugi
4/360/4/25% + Poison Immunity + 7×6
Must use Balance types
Few viable pairings
Yugi forces Devil / Balance
Hard to team build
Damage may be poor without VDP
May not have 7c subs
20 SB to Transform with Yugi
Nelle and Yugi are a match made in heaven as their two Leader Skill beautifully synergize with each other to produce a 4/360/4/25% with immunity to Poison damage along with a 7×6 board and all they have to do is match 7 or more connected Dark orbs. Just wow.
This sounds almost too good to be true and it is because Yugi must use Devil and Nelle requires Balance. Thus, your team building will be restricted to Balance + Devil cards who must also provide a total of 20 Skill Boosts in order to Transform. This is going to be by far the largest hurdle players will have to overcome as your options are quite restrictive. A quick Ilmina search shows only 4 Balanced Devils who have 4 or more Skill Boosts that have Dark as their primary attribute. With that being said, Winged Dragon will Transform into Dark Magician Girl who is a Balanced Devil.
Essentially, you are building a Yugi team with more restrictions but the payoff is significantly higher as you now have a larger board to play around with.
There is really not too much to say for Nelle as she is an all or nothing leader who uses a highly restrictive sub pool when paired with Yugi. Of course, for players who are able to do this, they will greatly enjoy the huge pay offs. Remember Nelle + Yugi > Yugi + Yugi due to the 7×6 board.
Nelle’s position may change in the future if more viable pairings emerge or her sub pool expands.
Weapon Assist: Active: For 2 turns, bypass damage absorb shield effects; Change the far left column to Dark orbs and change the far right column to Heal orbs (22 -> 22 turn CD)
Only Weapon to provide 5 Enhanced Dark orbs
2 turn Fujin + column Dark & Heart
Longer CD to prevent accidental charging
Harder to justify converting a single copy of Nelle to this
Nelle’s Weapon Assist is incredibly powerful as it provides the highest amount of Enhanced Dark Orbs of any Weapon which leads to an impressive increase in your team’s total Passive Damage.
Furthermore, the active skill provided generates a column of Dark and Heart orbs along with 2 turns of Damage Absorb Void (Fujin ). This is quite a powerful combination of effects and helps ensure at least one component will be useful.
Unfortunately, it may be difficult to justify converting a single copy of Nelle into this form assuming you are able to field a team for her. With that being said, if you are unable to build a team for Nelle (mostly because you did not roll in Yu-Gi-Oh Collab), you can utilize her as a Weapon and switch back if things change in the future.
To roll or not to roll
The current Super Godfest is only “special” due to the debut of Nelle and Faska. As such, the decision to roll or not roll in this current event will come down to how much you value the overall roster of cards featured.
While the chance for 1/3 GFE is now the norm, one has to remember that the other two-thirds of the cards may be somewhat “dead” rolls that cost 10 Magic Stones. This is because most Pantheon cards have much less use along with the strong possibility players already own copious copies of them.
As such, you need to take a look at the available roster and decided whether or not this will provide sufficient value with the goal to acquire 1/3 rolls as GFE. Just remember Super Godfests along with Nelle and Faska will return on a regular basis so there is no “rush” to roll this event.
Nelle and Fasca are two fantastic new cards to come to North America. They help solidify Transforming teams as a top-tier mechanic as they both provide natural 7×6 boards alongside their impressive Leader Skill multipliers.
I am personally not a fan of the Transforming meta as it often results in highly restrictive team building but at the same time Powercreeping older options.
Either way, let me know what you think about these two new Godfest Exclusives in the comments below along with whether or not you plan on rolling.
Today marks the debut of the special 7-stone Super Godfest that features higher rolling rates, three new 7-star GFE, +297/level 99 on each roll, and a tough decision for players to make.
The official GungHo NA stream announced this special event along with the promise of the GungHo Collab returning soon but we also know Monster Hunter and eventually Heroine will be back at an undetermined time.
All of these events are quite lucrative and will fight hard for your Magic Stones. This is one nice aspect of being 2-3 months behind JP as we are better able to plan out our stone usage for events that provide us with the most value.
Regardless, this article will provide an overview of this Godfest along with the three new GFE cards.
The GungHo Collab is finally making a return to North America after several months. Following the trend in January, the 6 and 7-star cards will be available during a Super Godfest. What makes this Godfest more exciting is the debut of the Dark evolutions which grant significantly more power to four of the 7* GungHo cards.
Due to the Super Godfest, the total chance of acquiring something of value is higher, but each roll will cost 10 Magic Stones. Thankfully, all cards come out +297, max Awoken, and max Level along with the rolling rates being around 33% to acquire a 6/7* GFE or 7* GungHo Collab card.
This article will outline the strengths and weaknesses of the GungHo cards to give players an idea of what each card has to offer and whether or not it is worth their Magic Stones.
