The Mini Three Kingdoms pal machine has been a long anticipated event on NA and is finally coming out later tonight. In general I wouldn’t recommend using your pal points on it, but that won’t stop people from doing so. There’s a thrill you can only experience by pulling that stupid dragon’s arm and this is about as good as it gets short of a godfest. There’s also the exclusivity factor as we never know when this machine will come back, if ever. However, rolling the regular PEM for spirit jewels or drops from weekday mythicals you can’t farm will always be the more efficient use, no matter how slim the chance of getting what you actually need, particularly when you consider the poor quality of the mini 3K monsters.
You should really only be rolling for the following reasons:
- You’ve just started, didn’t/don’t want to reroll and need a better leader.
- You’re a collector and need more trophies.
- You don’t need rare evo mats and rather roll for costly skill up fodder.
That’s it. This doesn’t factor in the precious box space they will eat up. I’ll tell you, those 5 mini Chinese aren’t doing anything but taking up space and I don’t want a repeat with the mini 3K.
How bad are these monsters? It doesn’t look good. Keep in mind that the grades are relative to the rest of the machine and that the bulk of the grade weighs on the power of the active and leader skills as their stats and awakenings have been neutered.
It really is feast or famine. Despite my negativity, if you have any desire to roll, you should! Rare evo mats will always be around and there’s no reason to regret not rolling as pal points are easy to replenish. Most importantly, it’s fun!
Personally, I may roll whatever pal points I have available, but I’ll likely regret losing the box space they take up. I’ll keep sitting on the pal points in my mailbox in hopes of a better use for them in the future. There’s already the possibility of the guaranteed evo mat PEM — the one that costs 500 points per roll — but I wouldn’t put it past GungHo to have another PEM collab in the future. It’d also be cool if they had a skill up fodder PEM or something, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on that.
