Draconic Orchestra REM Review and Analysis – July 2020

Introduction

The Draconic Orchestra returns to North America along with their host of musically-themed characters. Sadly, this event as a whole does not strike a high note as the cards featured lack any truly outstanding monsters along with the bottom rarity not receiving any love which in turn has further subjected them to Powercreep.

On the bright side, this event will return on a regular basis which means most of these cards should be regularly buffed. As such, it should be relatively easy to skip rolling in this current iteration and wait for more meaningful buffs before committing Magic Stones.

Either way, this article will outline the pros and cons for each card within the Draconic Orchestra event to give players a better understanding of what each monster can do.

Draconic Orchestra REM Review and Analysis – December 2019

Introduction

The Draconic Orchestra will be making a triumphant return on December 23 and has become significantly stronger since the last time. This is because all of the top rarity cards have now gained Weapon Assists along with several powerful and unique cards being available.

While this is exciting, players have to remember that this is a 10-Stone event which does make it more costly to roll and trade. Furthermore, there are only four bottom rarity cards in this entire Egg Machine who lack Weapon Assists. This will make it harder to justify rolling heavily in as dupes will start appearing earlier and in much higher quantities.

With this in mind, I feel it is still worth to roll a few times as having new cards is always valuable along with the off chance you hit a Diamond egg.

This article will outline the pros and cons for each cards to help players make a more informed decision as to whether or not they should roll.

Untitled Beach Ranking Tournament Strategies

Introduction

The Untitled Beach Ranking Tournament has gone live in North America and gives players a chance to play for lucrative rewards along with a 3% Crown.

As a twist, this dungeon will give players fixed leaders and have players build their own subs. This gives the illusion of choice but really boils down to a pseudo Monster Box check as certain cards are far superior. Thankfully, several key cards are actually farmable and some subs are flexible.

To further spice things up, time remaining will be worth twice as much. This places a much heavier emphasis on how fast you go and not fully matching each board will still get you a Crown.

This article will explain my approach to this Ranking Tournament for obtaining a Crown.

254,256 Score


Score breakdown

In Ranking Dungeons, players are scored based on the following:

  • Each Combo is worth 5,000 points

  • Each active used to kill a floor (no combo made) is -5,000 points
