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.

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.

Despite GFEs being at 4x rates, this godfest is all-around pretty bad which is only compounded by JP Dragoncallers only being featured on day 2.

4x to the featured gods makes this a very attractive godfest, especially for those chasing one of the elusive 6-star GFEs. It helps that both the pantheons are competent and that a dark gala is active. The addition of Fenrir to the GFE pool is the only negative to this godfest (although wood players are left wondering when they’ll ever get a wood gala to overlap with a godfest). This will likely be the best opportunity to roll until the PCGF.


Edit: 4x means you’ll have a greater chance of rolling a specific featured god, but since there’s only one featured pantheon the chances of rolling any pantheon god are lower overall. This means for newer players who should be prioritizing overall value, this may not be the best godfest to roll. For more experienced players, this is still a great godfest to roll. This was brought to my attention from a user comment and I feel I should point it out here for more visibility (I should have pointed it out in the first place).


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.

I’m still pressed for time, especially with 10x, so don’t expect prompt replies this time. I’ll probably close the comments earlier each day than usual. 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.

  • WordPress flags comments with multiple links. 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.
  • 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 when I stop taking questions for the day, so please be patient and wait for a reply the next day.
  • 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 taken as long as the post is still open for comments.

Are we back to last minute announcements again, GungHo? Get your shit together.

This will be the first time trying out the new format. “What is the new format?”, you might ask. It’s basically me trying to keep commentary to a minimum. This post will mainly be a platform for readers to ask me godfest-related questions if they’d like. This extends to overall box and team questions, too. If you post a question, please indicate your level of IAP, your playing habits and a link to your PADherder.

It’s been a while since we got the Archangels in a godfest (like nine months, according to this source) so it’s worthwhile talking about how they’ve changed since then. Don’t let their sub score fool you, it’s mainly brought down by the still useless Lucifer. They’re all at least as good as their Hero counterparts with Raphael being particularly useful due to his 100% damage shield. As leaders, they’re still all pretty useless as their leader skills weren’t improved.
