Puzzle & Dragons: My PAD Academy 2017 roll

Nothing particularly interesting even with new card introduction so it's great that we have a free roll and I don't have to spend any saved stones on this.

Rank 50 free roll: PAD Academy Cinderalla (1st copy)

The art is quite nice but I'm still going to sell her. I've only seen the Little Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty versions being used in red and dark heart teams, Xiang Mei and Xin Hua/Ana-Typhon respectively. Light Miru's team doesn't have any space for her and there are enough light unbinders. The nuke is only single target so it's not too useful.

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan Godfest (03/31/2017~04/02/2017) rolls

This was the one where they introduced the new 6* GFE, Amenominakanushi. Basically a light version of Aizen with the power spike from rows instead of crosses. The rates were 5x and it was nothing but GFE although I believed the carnival might have featured some pantheons (it was the new enhance dragons and weapon series 2) as well. I rolled on the second day hoping a Dark Kali as usual

Spica (1st copy)

When she first came out, I wanted her for the artwork as she's probably the happiest looking card in PAD in her evolved form. Her split UEVO looked different though and unfortunately I had to evo her to the Green/Blue sub version to be more useful. I see this version in green teams once in a while to cover 2 skill bind resists.

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan Weekly Shonen Magazine Collab rolls (Updated)

Lots of hype over Meliodas but while definitely powerful, I think that 3 specific orb requirement makes it not as reliable as other top leaders who can get through most of the Arena floors without using any actives. I don't think he will be as powerful as Aizen. Most, if not all of the diamond eggs in this collab are good leaders with interesting leader skills so I spend a lot of my saved stones in this one...

Rank 50 free roll: Maiko

Her awakenings are overall very good with those dark resist awakenings along with skill boost and skill bind resist. I've seen teams use 4 Halloween Sopdet-s or 4 Wedding Sopdet-s and 4 Maiko-s fit that kind of team composition too.

Next I choose to roll on Meliodas rate up days...

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan Gacha Dora Community Challenge (2nd) Reward rolls

Gold Dragon Rolls: Thumbelina, Misuki, WoodBahn

Sold them all. Really wished the rolls were confirmed pantheon ones like the previous challenge.... I still have my full skilled Thumbelina that I recently kept but have not inherited her to Miru like I intended. I just hardly use Miru nowadays.

Green Dragon Rolls: Gainaut, Liberty Geist, Ninegaruda

Turns out the farmable rolls were better than my gold dragon rolls...

Heroine Dragon Rolls: Kuvia (2nd copy), Mito (1st copy), Mito (2nd copy)

All are worth keeping another copy with Reco recently using double Mito to cleaer the new 3 co-op dungeons:

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan's Girl Gacha roll (Edited)

I just wanted Misery for the auto heal shenanigans... 1 roll and I got her!

Misery! (1st copy)

I wanted to form a REVO Anubis team like what Reco did here:, just for fun and watch the team heal back up from all the auto-heals. I intend to invest in skilling and +297-ing Misery/Dark Rei Ayanami (so glad I have not sold her!)/Yuna/Gunma (Edit: Didn't realise there's not enough Skill Bind Resist so this team wouldn't work!) if I test it out and see if it has enough HP, etc. After you played for a long time, these are the kind of things that can help keep things fresh!

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan Shinrabansho Choco Collab (7th) rolls

Kaede Another looks quite strong being unbindable but I wasn't going to use my saved stones on this just for a rare collab card. However, I checked which had a post on the rolls posted on twitter and I saw quite a number of people getting Kaede Another... thus, I did 1 roll.

Kiriko Another! (1st copy)

Not Kaede Another but a gold egg from a collab nevertheless... She can be used in my Xiang Mei team and with her newest buff to include dark resist awakenings, I seem to be coming up with some form of dark resist team soon around Light and Red cards: Light Ilmina, Kiriko Another, Mamiya, etc.

I have Asmodeus Another from the Collab previously and am glad I kept her till now (I generally keep cards with boardchanger actives) even though there wasn't much use for her as a devil version of Hathor. She's now a great sub for REVO Kushinada as she's healer type with a good boardchanger active and good awakenings like 7-combo!

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan Godfest (03/10/2017~03/11/2017) rolls

1 roll per day.

Gremory (4th copy)

One of the least useful 6* to get multiple dupes of as she does not have haste in her active. I just need 1 more and I can form a team full of Gremory-s...

Light Metatron (2nd copy)

I kept her because she is getting a split UEVO soon and although it turns out to be a very good leader skill, there really is no use for another copy; the sub blue version doesn't have useful awakenings so keeping the leader version is good enough. I turned this latest copy to the leader version with the pluses from the Godfest REM and once she is +297 and max skilled/awaken, I will sell the other copy.

Puzzle & Dragons: My Rank 150/250 Memorial Rolls (reset on around March 2017)

Leilan! (1st copy)

I got her pretty near her REVO announcement. Never used her even though I REVO her and max skilled with pii-s.

Verdandi! (1st copy)

Another card that recently got buffed from stream. My green teams are getting more viable, I don't see myself or people in the late game leading with her but she is another good sub for my green teams, especially in Kaede's. Haven't used her yet so far. With her and Leilan, I'm going to need a lot of tamadra-s.

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan GFE-only Gacha (2nd) rolls

I didn't know this had a chance of coming back but it did. I still chasing Dark Kali as a general non-IAP player other than the 1-time bargain pack purchases but I'll be realistic; I hope to get the 2 remaining 5* GFE that I do not have - Tsubaki and Ronove. 10-stones per roll

Fujin! (1st copy)

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan rank 500, 1-time bargain pack and Gacha Dora Community Challenge Reward rolls

Combining all the rolls to this post

Rank 500 free roll: Silk (1st copy)

This was newly announced in the anniversary stream and it only had the Legendary Heroes and Gemstone Princesses, which was really generous of Gungho! I really wanted Carat and Facet but got Silk in the end. I think she's the least useful Gemstone Princesses for me but probably still better than getting any of the Legendary Heroes...

1-time Bargain Pack roll (I always buy before it gets reset!): Hamal (2nd copy)

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan PCGF (2/18/2017~2/21/2017) rolls (Edit about buying boxes)

Marine Rider (2nd copy?)

Sold like previous copy. On hindsight, might have been useful to keep as we are getting more bicolor leaders like Awoken Amon who could have used him. The active skill is a lot better than before. I still think it is not a top tier sub because of lower stats.

Ars Nova (1st copy)

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan Heroine REM (2nd) rolls

As I have guessed, this returned along with the UEVO announcements for the cards in this series. I really wanted Elgenubi this time around as she is really useful for red teams and I can see myself using her in my Red Odin team...

Ilmina! (1st copy)

Puzzle & Dragons: My Japan Crows X Worst Collab (2nd) rolls

Rank 50 roll

Bouya! (1st copy)

After all the bad luck in the normal REM, this seems like a redemption for all the silvers I got. He received a UEVO and is probably the first card to obtain the Guard Break awakening. The effect is pretty cool with your card shooting lasers. It will be so fitting on Superman! In Japan, it has also been buffed to 100% instead of 50% and Bouya's 2nd guard break awakening was replaced with a skill boost.

Card design-wise, his leader skill isn't very powerful so I intend to use him as a sub but I have not been able to because I want to be able to make use of his guard break but the best rainbow leaders require hearts in activation which his active contradicts. The best way might be to ignore his active like here:

Note that in the Collab dungeon, Takeda Kousei's skill up card can be useful like how Fujin's skill card is used against damage absorb bosses. I farmed up 1 copy and kept it for future usage.

Fire Emblem Heroes: Tier lists, Rerolling and Useful Links and Tips (Updated with *Last Update*)

This mobile game is available in some countries at the moment (I read it's Japan and Europe) and I'm currently playing the version from Japan iOS app store and it's entirely in English so there are no language issues. After coming from the 3DS version of Fire Emblem, I'm a little not used to the sprites not being pixelated. If you get any retry prompts, just retry instead of returning to title screen.

Tier list links (Beginner roll tier list) (Based on Altema's list above but in an easy to read format, in English plus with details of the cards)

The first link also had some other guides worth checking out so do navigate around and check it out! The rest of the links above are in Japanese but there are plenty of pictures so it should not be too hard to understand. As the game is still so new, you'll probably want to check back to those sites once in a while as there will most likely be updates.

It seems like Takumi is one of the best card at the moment, I think mainly due to the skill that allows him to counterattack from any distance and being a neutral class. Takumi should be the safest option to reroll for now unless you have some other favourite character in mind.
