Godfest Help Post: 10/16-10/17

Grading scale. The individual grade is a composite grade of all monsters in it relative to all other pantheons. 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.

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.

Yawn. Coming off the PCGF, there probably aren’t too many people that have ammunition left for this godfest. I’m not sure why GungHo is so desperate to push both Constellation pantheons, but they’re doing their best here by pairing them with two of best overall pantheons in the game.

Anyways, here are the rules:

  • 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.

  • 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 a comment in bold red when I stop taking questions for the day or end the post altogether. Please look for and respect these cutoffs before posting! I’ll allow questions after the day 1 cutoff to queue up for the next day, but no new questions will be taken after the day 2 cutoff.
  • No new questions will be taken after the godfest ends. Questions asked in other posts may be ignored; please wait for the next godfest!

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

In the past, it seemed like GungHo would up their godfest game whenever a PCGF was around the corner in an attempt to drain us of a few stones before the big event. Not so much this time as the lineups are pretty underwhelming. Maybe they all of a sudden hate money or maybe they’re trying to get out of the way of the FF Collab. Whatever the reason, it’s a shame that we didn’t get a quality godfest for those players whom the PCGF is not great for.

Anyways, here are the rules:

  • 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.

With work sucking as usual, so much to grind in PAD and the release of Tree of Savior, I was debating just skipping this post this week. I’ll see how it goes, but don’t be surprised if I cut off the comments each day earlier and give less in-depth answers than usual. Anyways, here are the rules:

I wasn’t expecting them to push out the Constellations (or “Machine Star Series”) so soon, but considering how GungHo likes to chain major REM releases to efficiently pillage our bank accounts, it makes sense. Luckily, the new pantheon is quite good for one that doesn’t have uevos. Their applications aren’t as readily apparent as the Sengoku pantheon, but their flexibility to be relevant subs on just about any type of team is what makes them valuable. They’re also fairly strong leaders.

After getting their awokens, the Norse pantheon is a strange one. Surprisingly, I have them rated as the #1 overall pantheon. The numbers check out due to the way I set up the rating scale — pantheons that both lead and sub well are rare, meaning the Norse jump up the curve since they’re good at both — but that definitely doesn’t tell the whole story especially since being good at both isn’t all that much of an asset in the endgame. They’re only exceptional as leaders because of the HP boosters they pair with, not simply due to their own raw power. As subs, their value as a method to address the Kalis in the Arena definitely gives them a boost. They’re certainly a great pantheon, but you do have to understand why they are and how they can help your team. All being said, day 1 presents very good value. I’ll personally be rolling this day in hopes of chasing down that elusive Loki and landing the super cute Spica. The Christmas REM basically being a dud also helps my decision to roll this day.

Day 2 is also quite good to roll in and I’d imagine there are way more people that need the Heroes than the Norse. Despite being rather old, the Heroes are still some of the best subs in the game. Sadly, they’re almost obsolete as leaders, especially in light of the recent upgrades to the Valkyries.
