|Godfest: Three Kingdoms & Egypt 2 11/2, Heroes and Japanese 2 11/3|
|Day 1||Day 2|
|Three Kingdoms||Egypt 2||Heroes||Japanese 2|
That was a pretty long wait since the last godfest; about three weeks.
Day 1 is solid, but the Three Kingdoms no longer carries godfest days. It’s still hard to beat them in overall sub value, but their former superstars, Cao Cao and Liu Bei, are merely good now. Such are the ways of power creep and meta shifting. It’s harder to evaluate Egypt 2 since they all don’t have their uevos yet, but Set, Net and Osiris are all solid leaders and subs and hopefully Hathor and Nephthys follow suit. The lack of Kalis this day only makes things worse.
Day 2 is a pretty good day for subs. The Heroes have formed the core of many teams since their inception and that doesn’t look to change anytime soon. The Japanese 2 have all gotten new uevos which increases their viability as subs.
The big question for anyone considering rolling should be: should I wait for the PCGF or not? In general, I think day 2 presents enough overall value to roll now, but day 1 is likely a pass. It’s almost guaranteed that the good rolls from day 1 will also make the PCGF, so you’ll get more value if you wait.

As previously stated, the Three Kingdoms have lost much of their luster over time. Cao Cao has been a victim of a fire meta that’s now centered around Shiva Dragon. Liu Bei has been overshadowed by Vishnu and is only preferred on Verdandi teams. Sun Quan has been overshadowed by Awoken Isis. DQXQ and Lu Bu always had narrow use as subs, but are still solid leads for beginners. Overall still a very strong pantheon, but unless you have multiple hits on this day, it’s no longer automatic trying to roll for that one sub.
The uevos Egypt 2 has received thus far have increased their viability as subs, but haven’t done much for them as leaders. They’re still powerful leaders by virtue of their tankiness, but just a few extra awakenings, no matter how good, couldn’t take them to the next level. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of uevos Hathor and Nephthys get; I’d speculate that the delay means they’re getting leader-focused uevos which requires a bit more testing, but who really knows why GungHo does things.
Day 1 isn’t nearly as good for rolling as it would’ve been a few month ago. Combined with missing the Kalis from the GFE pool, you’ll have to think long and hard whether rolling this day is worth it for you.

The Heroes have aged incredibly well, a testament to how indispensable an orb change that enables both offense and defense combined with great utility awakenings are in this game. Yamato is a strong option for Shiva Dragon. Andromeda is a great option for Neptune Dragon, I&I-Ryune and Lakshmi. The only member of the pantheon that is faltering is Perseus as skill bind resists have become easier to access.
I believe this is the first time we’ve gotten Japanese 2 since all their uevos have been revealed. While they’ve all seen significant improvements, none of them have really pushed them to an elite level. Okuninushi is now a strong option for Arena utility, particularly on Yomi Dragon teams. Izanagi got the biggest overall buff, but is still inferior to Kanna. Uzume and Kushi are nice utility options, but aren’t game changers on the level of Isis or Amaterasu. U&Y got the biggest buff as a leader, but is overshadowed by the plethora of awoken and MP options. None of them are disappointing, but none are particularly exciting either.
Overall, this is a pretty solid sad for subs. Unlike day 1, this day also has the Kalis, further increasing the sub value. If you have multiple hits, then this is a good time to roll, just be aware that the PCGF is coming soon.
