The Yu Yu Hakusho Collab returns to North America with various buffs for existing cards along with four new monsters and Weapon Assists for everyone. This does grant the bottom rarity more value overall but at the same time, they are for the most part underwhelming.
As such, I feel that there is little motivation to actually roll in this event and instead take advantage of the incredible Monster Exchange rates. This is because all trades will only cost four 6-star Godfest Exclusives which is the lowest we can ever go. Furthermore, there is a strong chance many players have copious amounts of 6-star fodder available and can easily pick up any card that looks appealing.
This coming Monday marks the return of the Yu Yu Hakusho (YYH) Collab along with various buffs, new evolutions, and 5 additional cards to roll for.
Upon the initial debut, the YYH Collab featured a relatively lackluster roster but was the first event to feature the Monster Exchange system. This system revolutionized how players approached Collab/Seasonal REMs as it enabled us to trade in various cards for one of our choosing. This meant we could avoid rolling in events with poor value at the bottom rarity and acquire the top prize with no additional Magic Stones spent.
As such, many players acquired Yusuke who was game changing upon his debut. Sadly, GungHo has little love for beloved hero and only gave him Limit Break + Super Awakenings.
This may be a let down for many players who were hoping he would gain an improved Leader Skill but while he is no longer considered the best, Yusuke is still a powerful card to own.
This article will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of all the featured cards to give players a better understanding of whether or not Magic Stones should be spent. Finally, one thing to keep in mind is that Monster Hunter will be returning to North America soon and offers significantly more value overall.
