Thoughts on Monster Exchanging for Halloween Cotton, Elia, & Chakeol

Introduction

The Monster Exchange System is one of the greatest improvements to Puzzle and Dragons as it allows players to convert excess copies of Godfest Exclusives/Event cards for valuable Monsters. This process will consume 4-5 cards each time so it is not a decision that should be made lightly and should only be done when it will improve your current situation.

My general rule of thumb is to always keep at least 2 copies of any given card due to the fact that GungHo has been releasing numerous split evolutions and it is impossible to predict what will be released/buffed next. A great example of this is Valkyrie Ciel who went being an underwhelming card, to having two incredibly powerful evolutions where you would badly want each version.

In this article I will be outlining my thought process towards Monster Exchanging for Halloween Cotton, Elia, and Chakeol before it expires

Sanrio / Hello Kitty Collab REM Overview

Introduction

The Sanrio / Hello Kitty Collab returns to North America and comes with a measly 5 Magic Stone price tag. This lower cost enables players to potentially roll more liberally but the largest benefit is using 6* GFE as Trade Fodder. This is wonderful as many other events demand 7* GFE and it is possible players may be swimming in copious amounts of Trade Fodder. With that being said, players should always keep at least 2 copies of any given card as there is always the chance that GungHo will release powerful new evolutions.

While the 6 and 7-star rarity cards do not feature Weapon Assists , the bottom rarity does for almost every card. This can help offset the pain of rolling a Gold egg but at the same time, may make some of the higher rarity cards not as useful if you cannot take advantage of them
