|Godfest: Greco-Roman & Chinese 6/30, Japanese 1 & Egypt 2 7/1|
|Day 1||Day 2|
|Greco-Roman||Chinese||Japanese 1||Egypt 2|
Thanks to GungHo, I had very little time to prepare this godfest review. It’s not as robust as I’d like it to be, but I wanted to get it out ASAP. I may make some changes to the post later, particularly for day 2.
Day 1 is a great day to roll, particularly for subs. The Chinese are some of the best subs in the game and the Greco-Romans are no slouches either. Both pantheons are also great situational leads, the resist clauses of their leader skills making child’s play of endgame dungeons they line up well with. If you need the Chinese in particular, this is a great time to roll as NA should be getting their awoken uevos within the next couple months or so.
Day 2 is nothing special… yet. The prize of Japanese 1 is Awoken Kagutsuchi, but the rest are outdated as subs and they are all poor leaders. Conversely, Egypt 2 are underwhelming subs, but are great as leaders, their HP and RCV multipliers being extremely strong. They are all overshadowed by the newest uevos, but there is hope. Hopefully GungHo will finish what they started with Kagu and give the rest of the pantheon awoken uevos. Egypt 1 is next in line for uevos which could be incredibly strong. Not the greatest day to roll, but they could be gold someday.
|Day 1, 6/30|
The Greco-Romans received some of the first awoken uevos, but with the advent of power creep they’ve slowly fallen back towards the mean. While they are all still very powerful as both leads and subs, their time in the spotlight has passed. Minerva used to be the prize of the pantheon, but with fire getting some great TPA support some of her shine has faded. Venus and Ceres are the best after her, being irreplaceable for the teams that want them.
The awoken Chinese, on the other hand, are hot off the press and are obviously good, even with their strange typing. While their awoken uevos have more raw power than their old sub-specific uevos, both forms are still extremely strong and this flexibility only enhances their value. They are all powerful as dupes and reaching four means you can make a powerful system team, basically having a board change available to you every turn. I’m confident to say they have reclaimed their crown of top subs back from the Heroes… but my pantheon grade won’t reflect that because Sakuya drags them down. Ah, yes, Sakuya. Her uuevo is strong, but not as powerful as most would’ve liked. Although her gravity has gained a bit of relevancy due to the Ultimate Arena guaranteed Py dungeon.
|Day 2, 7/1|
The Japanese 1 are barely retaining relevancy as subs and are completely outclassed as leaders. Kagutsuchi is the obvious prize and will be a key sub on future Awoken Shiva and other fire TPA teams. Susano is also quite strong in spite of his active being on a 15-turn cooldown. Amaterasu would have more relevance if NA had Cloud. Yomi is still usable on combo teams, but is far from ideal anymore. And Orochi is, well, Orochi.
Egypt 2 are all capable leaders with Osiris and Hathor generally considered the best of the bunch. Their damage may seem underwhelming, but don’t underestimate the value of their HP and RCV multipliers. As for subs, Nut and Osiris are not bad for uevo Sarasvati and Awoken Bastet respectively. The rest suffer from not having skill up fodder in the NA. They are considerably better as subs than Egypt 1 once was since their actives are better, but their awakenings leave much to be desired.
Please feel free to leave questions in the comments; I’ve relaxed the comment settings so you should be able to post anonymously, if that’s your thing. I’ll try my best to get to them ASAP as I know how time sensitive it can be, but that’s assuming life is cooperative.
