|Godfest: Heroes & Japanese 1 9/12, Indian 1 & Egypt 2 9/13|
|Day 1||Day 2|
|Heroes||Japanese 1||Indian 1||Egypt 2|
I can get used to godfest announcements coming this “early”.
After getting the rest of their awoken uevos, Japanese 1 is now one of the best overall pantheons in the game. Pair them with the Heroes and you have the second highest overall rated pantheon pair — only behind the Chinese + Heroes — and the very best rated for subs. This doesn’t mean you should automatically roll day 1, but if you need anything specific to fill out a team or are just shopping for value, this is about as good as it gets.
Day 2 can’t hold a candle to day 1, but it’s still quite good for leaders. The Indian 1 pantheon is as good as it’s always been, only losing a little footing due to power creep, but that’s to be expected. Egypt 2 is in line to get their first set of uevos with Nut and Osiris already having theirs revealed. Sadly, they weren’t all that impressive, but an upgrade is an upgrade. Hopefully the rest of the pantheon will get something better.
|Day 1, 9/12
It’s amazing how relevant the Heroes pantheon has stayed in spite of their uevos being relatively old. This doesn’t look like it will change any time soon, especially with the mild resurgence in rows (which may only be the tip of the iceberg).
Since the last time they were in an NA godfest, the Japanese 1 has shot up the charts. Which is no surprise considering the rest of the pantheon after Kagutsuchi was finally bestowed with awoken uevos. They turned out great. Yomi is one of the best overall leaders in the game and Amaterasu, Susano and Orochi all got huge upgrades.
If you need anything specific from this day, GFEs included, this may be your best chance to roll for a long time. There’s just so much quality. However, if you’re specifically looking for a leader, this may not be the day for you. It’s not that they’re bad as leaders, but Yomi is the only elite-level one so you’re probably better off waiting for Egypt 1 to come back.
|Day 2, 9/13|
It’s actually kind of sad that the Indian 1 pantheon has become pretty “meh”; such are the ways of power creep. That being said, they’re all still great and well worth rolling for. Considering how far behind NA is on endgame content, they should continue to be great for quite a long time.
It’s really hard to place Egypt 2 since they’re literally in the middle of getting their uevos. We’ve already seen Nut and Osiris, neither of which were all that impressive. Osiris is still great because he’s still Osiris, but Nut really needed a boost to become more relevant as a leader. Conversely, Nut has become an amazing sub for Sarasvati due to the extra orb enhancers while Osiris doesn’t have a great home for his (finally getting uevo Vishnu will help a lot, though).
It’s hard to say whether the rest of the pantheon will follow suit, or whether they’ll get sub-oriented uevos at all (remember, Japanese 2 didn’t get all of the same type at first, either). I’m hoping that they’ll get leader-oriented uevos, but if they get sub-oriented ones GungHo better make their awakenings much better than Nut and Osiris’s since they need a lot more help to be relevant subs (I’m looking at you, Hathor).
While not as high quality as day 1, day 2 is still quite nice. Where day 1 is more for subs, day 2 is more for leaders. If you’re looking for a new leader in particular, I’d recommend waiting for Egypt 1, but it’s hard to go wrong here. I mean, in the worst case you can dump your garbage for MP and buy a dragon, right?
- I finally raised the bar for power creep with Ra Dragon being the first monster with a 110 endgame leader rating (the previous cap was 100). This mostly comes off the back of his raw power paired with the consistency with which he can clear the Ultimate Arena. You only need two DKalis to run him; time to open your wallets, boys.
- You know the power creep is real when the Greco-Romans are now plain average. It’s scary to think that someday they’ll be bellow average, but I guess that’s just how things work.
- I’m still looking into incorporating the GFE selection into the overall day grades. I have a lot of farming to do so I don’t expect it to be done anytime soon.
