|Godfest: Three Kingdoms & Indian 1 8/14, Egypt 1 & 2 8/15|
|Day 1||Day 2|
|Three Kingdoms||Indian 1||Egypt 1||Egypt 2|
Once again NA gives more than a day’s notice for the godfest. On top of that, they put out another great two days.
Day 1 features two great pantheons in the Three Kingdoms and Indian 1, but they excel disparately as subs and leaders, respectively. It’s hard to go wrong as the average quality is so high. However, if you’re specifically looking for an endgame leader, you may be better off waiting for day 2.
Day 2 is the premier day for rolling endgame leaders; the only other pantheon combination that could rival it is Egypt 1 and Indian 1. It’s well known how good Egypt 1 is, but don’t forget that Egypt 2’s Osiris and Hathor are still great endgame leaders. If you’re looking to advance from the mid- or late-game and don’t have that elite leader, this is the day to roll.
For those conflicted about whether to roll during this godfest or to save for the Summer REM, I’d say just roll now. This has the added benefit of making sure you don’t have as many stones to roll in the black hole of value that is the Summer REM.
In other news, NA didn’t get the new Dragoncaller GFEs. If the release of the previous set is any indicator, we should be getting them within the next month.
|Day 1, 8/14
There really isn’t all that much to say about either pantheon that isn’t already common knowledge. The Three Kingdoms is one of the better pantheons for subs, especially if you covet Cao Cao and Liu Bei who are two of the best in the game. The rest of the pantheon are no slouches as subs, either. None are particularly great as leads, but Lu Bu is the best for his compatibility with RSonia.
As for the Indian 1 pantheon, Shiva and Lakshmi are two of the best leaders in the game and Parvati isn’t too far behind. While Indra and Vritra have yet to receive their awoken forms, they are still surprisingly useful subs. Indra is great on combo teams while Vritra is an essential part of push button farming teams while also being a nice dark devil sub.
If you’re targeting a specific god or two from either pantheon, now is the time to roll as you’ll likely get great value from your gold eggs even if it’s not something you’ll use right away.
|Day 2, 8/15|
Egypt 1 is easily one of the best pantheons in the game. While they’re mainly known for their prowess as leaders, they aren’t completely embarrassing as subs with Isis being one of the premier subs in the game.
For whatever reason, Egypt 2 is one of the most underrated pantheons. It may have to do with their relatively low ATK multipliers or their lack of uevos, but in practice that doesn’t prevent them from being effective leads. Osiris and Hathor are particularly powerful and it’s telling that they can still compare to the awoken Egyptian 1s without even having uevos. Speaking of uevos, their value should explode once they get them.
This is the day to roll for leaders. It’s unlikely you’ll get a better chance to snag one, even in a PCGF.
- There are no more S rank leaders. Egypt 1 has the only two A+ leads in Ra and Bastet.
- There are also no more S rank subs. The Three Kingdoms contains two of the top four rated subs: Cao Cao and Liu Bei.
- The disappearance of S ranks can be attributed to once crap monsters getting huge upgrades. I take this as a sign that my grade system that is based on the normal distribution is working as intended. The outliers will regress to the mean as more monsters near each other in power level.
