Mystics & Spectres REM Review Review and Analysis – May 2021

Introduction

The Mystics & Spectres returns to North America but only includes buffs for 2 cards along with no new monsters being added. As such, the vast majority of cards have remained stagnant and while nothing can ever be “nerfed” in PAD, not receiving buffs means cards will fall behind as newer things are released.

With that being said, there is still tremendous value within the actual Mystics & Spectres cards but we will be plagued by the worst REM set up which lumps all of these event cards into the regular REM. This results in a 5 Magic Stone price tag, no GFE, and no collateral benefits along with painful rolling rates for the top rarity cards who are the true prizes for this event.

Taking all of this into consideration, there is still value to be had rolling within this event but if you have done so in the past, there may be little reason to continue chucking Magic Stones here in the hopes of acquiring a 7-star card due to the terribly designed REM.

Mystics & Spectres REM Review and Analysis – January 2021

Introduction

The Mystics and Spectres REM is a brand new series that will have many similarities to the Sin Dragons & Key Heroes event we had a couple of months ago.

This is because both events feature GungHo-owned cards that will be available within the Rare Egg Machine. This means that non-event cards will appear but at the same time, this is worth the risk as the new cards featured are quite strong.

On the downside, there will be no Monster Exchange available for the three top rarity cards who all have to be rolled or purchased via an IAP bundle. As such, if you are wanting any of the higher rarity cards, you will have to commit to numerous rolls.

Regardless of this, this article will outline the pros and cons for each card to give players a better understanding of what to expect in the new Mystics & Spectres Rare Egg Machine.
