Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan Bleach Collab (2nd) rolls

I decided to roll a lot for Aizen after I saw Reco clearing difficult dungeons with ease. ( That card is just too broken!

Free roll: Sado (1st copy)

He's mostly used inherited on red teams for speed farming dungeons so I'm OK with the roll and kept him.

Sado (2nd copy)

Sado (3rd copy)

I've sold the other 2 copies but found out later that there are use for dupes as teams actually do inherit a few of them! If you have many copies, consider keeping them! I've not really invested into forming those kind of teams though. One thing's for sure, they are going to cost a lot of red pii-s to max skill.

Matsumoto (1st copy)

I think this was my first copy, anyway I don't think she's really useful and I hardly seen her being used. Sold for MP.

I think I stopped here and then it was announced that there will be increased rates for the rare cards so  I rolled again during Aizen's increase rate day...

Kenpaichi (1st copy)

I read he's a troll gold... anyway, his active and awakenings along with his God typing seems pretty good for Yomi Dragon. I've been searching for a replacement for Okuni after I change him to awoken form and Kenpaichi seems OK. However, I didn't manage to farm up his skill up card although I practically farm the Bleach Collab Dungeon throughout its stay. Sold for MP as I didn't want to pii him...

Kisuke (1st copy)

One of my favourite characters from the anime/manga and unlike Kenpaichi, I managed to max skill Kisuke. He did get a slight buff from being rolled by YamaP on stream but I think he will most likely have a use on ALiu Bei teams as a sub or inherit.

In the end I didn't manage to roll Aizen although you can't expect much without in-app purchasing. It's probably worth to start saving stones for when Bleach Collab returns again.

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan Godfest (11/30/2016~12/01/2016) rolls

(I noticed I'm suppose to be referencing last year's rolls so I should add the year '2016' to the blog titles)

This is still 5x rates but the featured cards are all evolved versions so theoretically, I think it makes the rate seem more like 4x(?).

Day 1


My first copy and I was quite happy to get her. I think I knew she is a good sub for UVO Ra Dragon and Light Miru but not to the point that she is actually an important sub, which she is. I made her dark and while she is not hard to find friends from the stranger list of 3, I don't recall every using her. (She's not high tier than the rest that I had so having her in her powerful sub form is more useful) I heard she is really easy to use and the only weakness is a lack of high damage multiplier as you'll usually need a gemstone active for a 1-shot kill. I eventually turn her light for Light Miru, Revo (reincarnate evo) Ra, etc, while the Angelit was skill-up material and managed to get the final skillup along the way. Light Kanna and AIsis are 2 out of 4 subs of the Ra Dragon dream team and I'm almost there...

Day 2
I rolled more on Day 2 as Indian Gods 2.0 were featured and I wanted Ganesha.

Australis (3rd copy)

I kept all copy so far, including this 3rd copy as he's probably useful as an inherit. With that said, I hardly use him as my green box is the most under-developed and the most I see is 2 of him in a UUVO Kushinada team by Paprika ( Hopefully, his evolved form will improve him.

Fuu (Xth copy)

Sold for MP

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan Heroine REM rolls (Update with side-note on Melissa)

Card info:

Free roll: Barbara

It turns out that my best roll was the free roll on hindsight. I kept thinking that I had to use Antares as I mistaken Barbara for being red type like Red Sonia but completely forgotten I actually can use Eschamali and Hamal. Barbara is my first lead of the type that "clear more than 3 connected orbs" and although a little restrictive in subs but seems quite powerful. I haven't used her yet as I wanted to use only when I have all machine subs. (OCD?) There was only 1 up in my existing friends during the GFE Heroine REM period and none now so she isn't "popular" in my list.


She makes an ok sub for Barbara, I seen an Arena run with 4 Kuvia subs, and in red teams but my red teams are not developed other than Xiang Mei. She might be a possible inherit for Xiang Mei subs. I haven't used her once.


A boardchanger is always useful and she also has nice killer awakenings. I could use her in my dark combo leaders but like most of the cards in this set, I have existing subs with more awakenings. I think the upcoming evolutions in February will probably add more awakenings to the cards and make them more useful.

I wanted to roll more because to try to get Meridionalis but didn't because I think when the evolutions are announced in February, the REM should be back. She is a top tier leader and the best card in the set and not Ilumina and Elgenubi that most people focused on before release. (Elgenubi is seen a lot as a sub for Shiva Dragon teams though)

Side-note: Melissa, the dungeon boss and Ilmina skill-up fodder, is one of the few non-REM card that I use frequently; she has a place in my Ilm team: Superman/Saria/Melissa/Awoken Ama, and functions really well as I do not have more Ilms.

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan Godfest (11/18/2016~11/20/2016) rolls

The rates were 5x and it's one of the best rates IMO. You don't quite see such rates in recent times anymore after they adjusted and went back to 4x or lower.

Day 1: Sumire (2nd copy)

I could start leading with Sumire with this second copy as sub but never found the need to because I already have Blue Miru. This second copy worked really well on Blue Miru though, even when unskilled as I normally do short dungeons so I use this copy's skill last and it works out fine. My Blue Miru team used most of the time: Sumire/Sumire/Beach Urd/Sitri.

Day 2: Gremory (1st copy)

It's always exciting to get a 6* GFE and I'm happy with this pull. However, this was before her buff in a later stream and I find myself not having enough optimal subs. I set out to use her anyway and field a team of Hanzo/Yomi Dragon/Awoken Pandora/Juggler. I thought Hanzo's low CD skill can help with her activation but I actually failed a normal descend with that team. I can't remember clear but it was either due to running out of active or no hearts for heart cross. I stop using Gremory after that but things change later and I will come back to Gremory again in a future post. I could buy Xin Hua who is a great Gremory sub but I don't like spending all that MP for just a sub; I'm not interested in leading with Xin Hua.

Puzzle & Dragons: My Rank 150/250 Memorial Rolls (reset on around 07/12/2016)

Izanagi (1st copy)

I never got around to skilling up Light Miru and Awoken Izanagi was a great replacement that I use occasionally even up to recently. With King Tans being able to help speed skilling up light Miru, I will most probably use less of Awoken Izanagi once I have her ready. I hardly use him as a sub as well so hopefully his future reincarnate evolution form improves him.

Lumiel (1st copy)

I hardly use Lumiel at all since I rolled her until recently when i figure she can be the 5th nuke for my Red Odin team.  On hindsight with Dark Athena being available in the MP shop, she does see use on her teams but mostly as an inherit onto a board changer like Awoken Haku.

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan PCGF (9/30/2016~10/2/2016) rolls (with update #2 on Yamantaka and Paimon)

It's been a long time since I posted anything as I planned to play PAD a lot less and was busy with work, Monster Hunter and Pokemon Go. (I'm going to post my tips on those 2 latter games soon since I have some research notes done on them while playing) In the end, I did reduce my playtime on PAD; I now no longer try to maximise my usage of stamina and can let it sit at full without playing. The reason that got me back to playing was Blue Miru during the Summer REM which I bought. I intend to change my posts to focus more on the rolls I get during REM events and to catchup back on the past rolls in future posts.

This PCGF have a lot of relevant cards, it is full of top leaders and subs and is definitely worth rolling IMO. I hope to get one of the two top Green leaders in Kaede and Ronove (I already have Liu Bei) although I am also short of most of the best green subs. Green is currently my weakest color and getting one of those two will be nice with Kaede also being a great green sub. GameWith has a good writeup on this PCGF: https://パズドラ The first list highlights some of the top leaders while the second list does it for some of the top subs.

I voted for Andromeda for my Blue Miru but she didn't got in. Here are my rolls:
