    This is the same carnival that JP had on New Year's Godfest. The rate for each featured monster are as follows:

    gemstone princesses: 2.40%
    lengendary heroes: 1.52%

    source: https://tieba.baidu.com/p/4924850334 (data compiled from 7284 rolls)

    TLDR: this carnival has the highest rate ever for gemstone princesses and lengendary heroes.

    HOWEVER, this carnival was the last time to date that JP had gemstone carnival overlapping with gf. But for whatever reason NA decided to roll out the gala during a non-gf week...

    Lastly a small PSA: after REM renewal (removal of late bloomer dragons and fruit dragons), attribute themed galas stopped appearing. Hence this might be one of the best (and last) time to roll gemstone princesses before the change takes place.

    I got 3 gemstones from this carnival when it was in JP so disregard all warnings and dump all your stones into it!

    9 rolls. 7 silvers, 1 troll gold, and last roll was Facet!

    Definitely would not recommend this REM to the faint of heart.

    Another point in favor of not rolling: The Sage Dragon series will eventually debut in NA and Gemstones will lose considerable value.



    On-color 5x ATK burst actives, 2 turns haste, and 1000 weighted stats (important for assist stat bonuses).

    Wait, they removed attribute galas?

    Decided to do a YOLO roll just to try my luck and got dark Chester. Oh well, I wasn't expecting to "win" but it was fun trying anyway.

    That might be true but you also need to keep into consideration that not every team is going to run the same color and that's where gemstones come in. That aside, the gemstones has one less CD (no 2 turn haste though) and lasts for two turns instead of the one. I wouldn't say that those dragons makes the gemstones obsolete, they're just different that serves a similar purpose.

    Good points. I hadn't thought of rainbow teams or Gemstone actives lasting 2 turns instead of 1. So "will lose considerable value" may have been too hasty an assessment on my part.

    I used my 20 measly stones and got garbage. However, I'm tempted to save up stones through the week and roll as much as I can because with where I'm at in the game, the gemstone princesses and a couple other monsters are the only ones that could make a real difference for me.

    The statistics are discouraging. The odds of getting something good in 4ish addition rolls are pretty lousy. And I take @Tek7 's point about future damage enhance options, although I feel like we can't wait for the future forever. Plus, in the (relatively near) future we'll get a heap of cheap stones from the new Challenge Mode.

    Eh, probably I'll save up stones and go for it, since a very small chance of success is still my best chance of achieving further progress in the game. Kinda depressing.

    Rolled once on my alt after reading this thread.

    Got Chester #2.

    Confirmed that I should not roll on my main.

    I currently have 100 stones on my main, but I have this not-quite-OCD thing about not dipping below 100 stones except for fantastic REMs.

    That is ABSURD luck but then again I'm convinced bought stones give better results
