Card Notes
3524 - 水華の喜女神・Uruka
Ranked Sites: Game8 (SS), AppMedia (SS), Altema (SS)

I was skeptical of Uruka at first, but after watching a few videos, it’s hard to deny her power. Perhaps her biggest draw is her ability to raise the consistency of color-match leads with her 7×6 board which is particularly good for middle-tier ones like Kaworu Kali and Rei Myr. The added bonus being you don’t have to roll Uruka herself to benefit. I’ve never been a fan of 7×6 boards, but I’m eager to try her out on NA to see if she can change my opinion.

3527 - 清杖の龍機博士・Julie
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A), Altema (A)

Julie(?) is a leader that benefited greatly from her evo, getting an offensive bump up from 36x to 56.25x. This makes her a 2.25/56.25/1 leader with a 43.75% shield which is a good combination of offensive and tankiness not all that far off from something like Myr. Of course, the usual complaints of bind vulnerability and killer damage control cap her potential. Still, she’s arguably the best actual water lead in the game, rivaling Summer Myr, and one of the best to take advantage of water’s growing TPA sub base.

3513 - 救書の灰幻魔・Ilmina
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A), AppMedia (S-)

Unlike Uruka, I’m not as optimistic about Ilmina. There’s a big difference between 4.5x and 6x and Uruka’s more demanding activation isn’t as much of a drawback on a 7×6 board. Despite that, Ilmina is still pretty great and, as with her base form, should see some amusing pairings with cross leaders, the updated uevo Kenshin likely being the most relevant of those available to NA. Pairing a ridiculous multiplier with a 43.75% shield seems pretty good.

3491 - Reincarnated Haku
Ranked Sites: Game8 (A)

After playing revo Haku firsthand, I can say she’s very strong, although I think Game8 probably has her a little overrated relative to the rest of their list. She’s basically a much worse DAthena, but that is still a pretty good place to be. While Haku can compete with DAthena’s tankiness and ease of activation, the lower damage and lack of bind immunity are obvious shortcomings. The 7-combo awakening and strong TPA subs bring enough damage for most situations, but it isn’t something you’d want to face a Radar with. Being able to fully utilize uevo Satsuki is quite nice, but despite the quad TPAs she does damage similar to the leads or a DAthena sub and the devil killer is a liability. Having to dedicate a sub slot to bind utility doesn’t hurt as much since activation is so consistent, but is still a drawback when much of the current meta is based around saving actives over long dungeons to deal with those 2-3 problem floors. Despite this, I’m happy to see finally see revos creep into the fringes of the tier lists; hopefully future ones will have a similar power level.

3507 - Reincarnated Astaroth
Ranked Sites: AppMedia (S), Altema (A)

I’ve been spoiled by today’s top leads. After watching a few Astaroth videos, all I could think of was the amount of effort you had to put into her activation. Six wood orbs usually results in about one million damage per sub so you almost always have to use an active to burst. It’s funny how that is thought of as high effort nowadays, but Aizen and DAthena are just that ridiculous. Comparisons aside, Astaroth looks to have quite a few things going for her this time around. Being bind immune is always huge, but my biggest complaint previously was a shallow sub pool with very few time extends. Well, not only does Astaroth have one herself, but Romia can serve the role of TE stick while also supplying an board change that is compatible with Astaroth’s orb change.

3514 - 裁槌の鋼星神・Elgenubi
Ranked Sites: Altema (A)

I was a bit surprised to see Elgenubi appear on even the fringes of any list. A 2.25/36/2.25 line is not bad. Until you factor in the machine restriction and match-five activation.

Altema reworked their list, but it didn’t affect the aggregate list too much.

GameWith was removed from the aggregate due to them changing to a ranking list format. I’ll be looking into replacements, but don’t expect that to happen soon as I don’t have much time to update the script. Most movement was due to their removal with Vegito and Sesshoumaru being the only notable additions since then.

The combined grade is a composite of all monsters in both pantheons relative to all other combinations of pantheons. Combined grades are not an average of the individual grades, but based on the normal distribution of all possible two-pantheon-combinations. Grades do not factor co-op or skill inheritance at this time.

This is a help thread, so please feel free to ask questions on just about anything concerning the godfest or your teams, box and progress in general.

As this falls on a weekday, I’ll be limited in how many questions I can answer. I’m not going to set a hard limit as I’m still trying to gauge how much interest there is coming off my hiatus, but don’t be surprised if your question doesn’t get answered. I apologize in advance.

I’m also still working on improving the post format. I’ll get to it eventually, but for now I at least have an auto-generating template up and running. Please let me know if you run into any mistakes.

Please read the rules before posting, especially if this is your first time:

  • I will only take box questions that supply a PADherder. It makes it much, much easier for me to give good advice this way (you could say I can’t give good advice without the sorting options). Try PadListener to sync if you’re on Android (if it works for you), otherwise use this method.
  • Box/roll questions that don’t supply rank, IAP status and main teams will be ignored. Any other information you want to supply will only help.
  • Please check the FAQ after the break before asking a question. Questions that aren’t covered by the FAQ will be prioritized; questions that don’t may be ignored.
  • I have WordPress set to flag comments with multiple links to combat spam. I still get the comment, I just have to approve it manually for it to show up on the site. So if your comment doesn’t show up, this might be the case. Ideally, only post a single link to your PADherder.
  • I generally reply on a first come, first serve basis, but if there’s a low hanging fruit I’ll address that first.
  • I will post thread status as bold red comments. Make sure you read these comments before posting to make sure you aren’t violating the rules. I’m no longer segregating comments by day, instead I’ll indicate how many questions I be able to take for a given thread in the first status comment, then stop taking new ones after that.
  • No new questions will be taken after the godfest ends. Questions asked in other posts may be ignored; please wait for the next godfest!
  • Follow-ups to existing questions will be taken as long as the post is still open for comments.
  • I’ll close the post for comments a few hours after the godfest ends.
  • Any comments breaking the rules will be removed without warning.

Game8 did some stuff after three weeks of silence. The other lists essentially stood pat. I believe the JP stream starts in like nine hours from this post (converting to Moon time is hard) so hopefully there’s some interesting news.

REM Review – New Year’s 2

3418 - Gazing Moonlight Princess, TsukuyomiIt’s difficult to compete in quality with special REMs like Final Fantasy and Bleach, but as far as seasonals go New Year’s is one of the better ones. Kanna is one of the best subs in the game, Yomi is a great endgame lead, Yamato is a very strong fire sub, and there are a few nice role players at lower rarities like Hanzo and Tengu. Where something like Christmas had a gaping void in value between its 8-stars and silvers, New Year’s does a much better job of presenting good value throughout all rarities. I’m still very reluctant to recommend rolling in a special REM, especially now that Bleach set such a high standard, but considering how dismal the standard REM rates have become I couldn’t blame anyone for trying their luck.

A quiet week, the only change being GameWith’s addition of Ushio & Tora to their lowest tier. Hopefully the JP stream will shake things up a bit (assumed, I haven’t heard an announcement nor looked into it). On a tangent, I’m really not liking this new convention of saving uevos for the stream. I much preferred it when they spread then throughout the month.

New Card Holding Tank

New cards will be held here temporarily in an attempt to isolate the aggregate list from knee-jerk ratings.
Card Notes
3429 - 2体で最強の妖・Ushio & Tora
Ranked Sites: GameWith (B)

Once considered the inferior Rukia, Ushio & Tora now has the more desirable traits, the bind immunity in particular, as well as an improved sub pool including June Satsuki, light Cecil and Ilm’s sub form. They’re also expecting YamaP buffs; it’ll be interesting to see if they get enough of a push to appear on the other lists.
