PAD NA Tier List (Updated 12/10) & Why Tier lists are not Facts- By InSomnia

Introduction

Hello everyone, InSomnia here, and welcome to my North American tier list. Everything listed here is based solely on content that is available in NA. I will update this post on my website here whenever there is a change or shift in rankings due to a buff directly to the lead or buffs to key subs of that lead. New releases will also be added. 

Anytime a new lead is added to the list, I will accompany it with a review of the lead that goes over the basics and gives you an idea on why they are at that tier. Each lead that is on this list will be accompanied with a short overview of the card as will include a link to the PADX page of the card so you can see the card for yourself. This article is very simple and is written with the mindset that you have played this game for a while and understand what the “meta” is as well as any special terms or abbreviations. It is also written under the impression that you understand how to basic teambuild and how different styles of leads are played. If you are unfamiliar with anything, simply ask and I will do my best to explain it to you. This has been your disclaimer

Finally, before you start reading, please understand and read this disclaimer quoted from SetsuPAD: “Don’t take these ratings as fact; I encourage you to simply take them as a starting point for discussion to figure out which leads are actually the best for your specific situation” Essentially what this means is just because a lead is top tier on this list, it may not be top tier for you. Everything listed is under the assumption that you have the most ideal team possible. You may own a lead in SS tier and a lead in A tier, but the A tier might be the better lead for you because your box has the subs to support it better than the SS tier lead.

I wrote something about this awhile ago here. I also want to link a more recent article covering the same topic written by Kennori of PDX Academy here(which in my opinion is much more well written and deserves more credit/recognition). Before you begin reading, I want to make a few things absolutely clear. I’m making this tier list because I think they are interesting and fun; however, as you read in Kennori’s article, it is pretty pointless. All a tier list can do is show you the strongest leads in the game with the most optimal subs and in the hardest dungeons (primarily Alt. Arena). It’s always best to build around a dungeon. However it is not bad for a team to cover a little bit of everything, but if you are struggling to clear a dungeon, think about changing your team to better match the dungeon. This sometimes does mean changing leads that better suit the dungeon. This can be because of certain absorb spawns, enemy HP/damage, dungeon mechanics, or even dungeon length. With that out of the way, let us begin.

10-Stone GFE Rare Egg Machine Review Plus New Split Evolutions

 Introduction

The 10-Stone Godfest Exclusive Machine is returning to NA/EU and it offers players the chance to spent 10 Magic Stones for a guaranteed GFE. This means no filler silvers or troll golds and every roll will be at least 15,000 Monster Points. As such, this is the highest per roll if you are purely chasing Monster Points along with potentially the best chance at acquiring 6-Stars.

Puzzle and Dragons has been decreasing the dependency of solely using 6-star GFE through the current top tier leaders being more forgiving and utilizing pantheon cards. However, there are many active skill that cannot be replicated any other way. Furthermore, JP has released brand new split evolutions for 7 GFE cards which dramatically improve their viability and uses.

This article will present my tier list that includes the new JP evolutions along with a small write up for each card.

GFE tier list

All tier lists will have a certain degree of bias whether it is accidental or by design and mine is no exception. I try my best to evaluate each card based on their value as a leader, sub, inherit, or niche applications. It also does it’s best to take into consideration the newly announced/released evolutions in JP. Thus, you should take them with a grain of salt and use them as a beginning reference point.

If a card has a split evolution, both are taken into consideration as they have different merits/strengths. Ney  is not included but will be an easy S once she does debut (really should have a tier all to herself due to the sheer power, but that is for another post).

Order within each tier is random and not reflective of power in any way. Continue reading 10-Stone GFE Rare Egg Machine Review Plus New Split Evolutions

Heroines and Mayhem Godfest Review, Tier List, 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.

Introduction

The Heroines and Mayhem Godfest features some of the best Pantheon cards at a sad 3x rates. However, 3 Pantheons are featured per day so that may be some consolation, but GFE are also at 3x rates. In addition, all featured cards will come out at level 50 and +10 to a random stat. Non-featured GFE will not appear on those respective days.

Presently speaking, most players will be pursuing cards for the new flavours of the month: Dark Athena 3193 and Kushinadahime . Sadly, this Godfest is missing Haku  but many other valuable cards are featured alongside Kushinadahime.

Unfortunately, and strangest aspect of the Heroines and Mayhem Godfest is that there is no gala occurring alongside. This means no Gemstones or even better focus on an element you crave. Instead, we have an additional Tamadra popping out.

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 Heroines and Mayhem Godfest Review, Tier List, and Analysis

Introduction

The Might of the Guardians Godfest descends this Sunday and will only be featuring Godfest Exclusives (GFE) at 5x rates with no boosted pantheons. In addition, each roll will come out with +40 to a random stat. Non-featured GFE will not appear from the REM on those respective days.

Having a Godfest with no featured Pantheons and boosted rates for GFE may feel appealing, but it is my belief that the overall rates of rolling something meaningful are lowered. It is my understanding that cards have a certain roll rate and Godfest boost them. However, with less cards experiencing a boosted rate, you are more likely to roll 4-stars or other sad fodder.

One unfortunate aspect of this Godfest is that it does not feature any core Dark Athena 3193 subs. Dark Athena is not reliant on Godfest Exclusives outside of a few inherits and the fact that it is not a Midnight Gala further diminishes your chances.

It is my hope that this list will become a quick reference source for players who are newer to the game as they can quickly see where their new cards rank/place. Part of my desire to do this is from my starting journey in Fire Emblem Heroes and constantly referencing their respective tier list.

These opinions are my own and take into consideration the card’s value as a leader, sub, inherit, and possibly any niche role they fulfill.

If a card has a split evolution path, I simply evaluate the best option possible.

Extravagant Easter Godfest Review, Tier List, and Analysis

I have added mouse over text for all of the icons for the tier lists. Let me know if you find any errors =)

Introduction

The Extravagant Easter Godfest descends this weekend and features 3x rates for featured Pantheons along with 4x for GFE. In addition, all rolls out of the Rare Egg Machine will come with +50 to a random stat. Finally, non-featured Godfest Exclusives will not appear from the Rare Egg Machine.

Following the trend of my previous Godfest reviews, I will include a tier list of both the pantheons, GFE, and a list that combines both for each day. Furthermore, I will include a fully updated Pantheon tier list to help showcase where all your cards fit in.

Pantheon & GFE Tier List – April 4, 2017

Introduction

I have begun to utilize my own tier list for both the featured Pantheon Gods and GFE every Godfest and I felt it would be appropriate to have a master list available at all times. This list will be updated through a new post as buffs/evos are announced or as I do a subsequent Godfest review that has me change the rankings.

It is my hope that this list will become a quick reference source for players who are newer to the game as they can quickly see where their new cards rank/place. Part of my desire to do this is from my starting journey in Fire Emblem Heroes and constantly referencing their respective tier list.
