Explorers! After a whirlwind couple of weeks with added Legendary attempts, we're back to business as usual with Nullify & Fleeing themes. It's been quite some time since we had Nullify featured at event drops, so let's go over what our Discord community is thinking, what we'll recommend to dart, and everything else you need to know.
Weekly Calendar Explained
Before we dive in to the week, we'll break down how the weekly event calendar works. First, each day is considered started at 10am Eastern on that day. It is possible that wherever you live, it might actually be the previous or next day, so we wanted to help clarify how they determine what day it is. At this time, event creatures & strike towers will be updated as applicable. This information is also noted on the calendar.
Ever wonder why some weeks we’re given 45 attempts on commons and others only 18 or 27? The reason for this is that the volume of attempts is a simple math calculation based on the rarity and number of options. Take the rarity base number and multiply by the number of options and voila, you have your total allowed attempts! Having more variety in the options yields that many more attempts. The flip side is it may be more difficult to find the creature(s) you favor. Below details the number of attempts assigned to each rarity which is used to determine how many attempts you receive (though occasionally, they stray from this math). This is the total you are allotted across all options, so it is important to select your choices wisely.
- Common = 9 per
- Rare = 6 per
- Epic = 3 per
- Legendary/Unique = 1 total
They recently started putting the number of attempts on the calendar again and sometimes stray from the above. Refer to the calendar for the confirmed counts. Each rarity has a different length of time the spawn lasts followed by a different length of time until respawn after despawn. Commons and Rares will last 1 hour with about 5 minutes between. Epics last 2 hours with about 5 minutes in between.
All strikes and trials are represented on the calendar with the level of difficulty along with how long they last (1 day or 2 days). The trials are shown along the very bottom in gray boxes.
Featured Creatures: Commons
Monday - Wednesday: 36 Attempts
- Dilophosaurus Gen 2 (Global Anytime) (Dilophoboa>Spinoconstrictor, Tyrannolophosaur>Tenontorex)
- Diplocaulus (Park Day/Dawn/Dusk) (Diplotator>Scaphotator)
- Monolophosaurus Gen 2 (Local 4 Anytime) (Monolometrodon>Monolorhino, Scorpius Rex Gen 2>Scorpius Rex Gen 3)
- Tanycolagerus (Global Anytime) (Quetzorion)
It's pretty clear Mono2 is the top choice of this week, and it's no surprise the vast majority of those in our Discord community who voted plan to target this one.. Between MRhino and SR2/SR3, this is one you truly can't get enough of. Two of the other options are available everywhere, all the time, and Diplo doesn't create anything special at this time.
We are given three days on Commons this week, so that feels like enough time to be particular about your choice(s). However, your ultimate plan might simply be to dart whatever crosses your path. 36 is still a lot of attempts, and you may be better off not investing extra time seeking out any in particular.
Featured Creatures: Rares
Thursday - Friday: 18 Attempts
- Compsognathus Gen 2 (Local 4 Anytime)
- Dilophosaurus (Event Exclusive) (Ovilophosaurus, Diloranosaurus>Diloracheirus)
- Kelenken (Event Exclusive) (Grylenken)
Woohoo two event exclusive options comin right at you! Of course we just had a full week of wild Dilo through hybrid pursuit. This one feeds the most hybrids and may be your preference as a result. It feels like they have been shoving Compy2 down our throats lately. This will be the 5th time over the past 12 weeks we see this one at event drops. With flocks seeming to carve out their own little meta, it wouldn't be any mistake to go with this one either to over level for tournament or stockpile for a possible future hybrid. Last, we have Kelenken. I strongly considered leveling Grylenken for tournament but decided to wait. When I was talking this over within my alliance, DadJokes expressed how much he loves his. If you're looking for a not so oft used Legendary option, Kel may be your way to go (and that isn't name bias talking).
Those who voted in our Discord poll are a little more evenly spread across Compy2, Kel, and whatever crosses the path. There isn't much love for DIlo, though.
Featured Creatures: Epics
Saturday - Sunday: 9 Attempts
- Koolasuchus (Global Dawn/Dusk/Night) (Skoolasaurus>Skoonasaurus)
- Monolophosaurus (Local 3 Anytime) (Monomimus>Pterovexus, Monostegotops)
- Pteranodon (Local 3 Anytime) (Pteraquetzal>Quetzorion)
We just had Mono featured a couple weeks ago, and here is what I wrote: "There isn't really much to be said for Mono. Mimus, Vexus, and MonoS have had their days in the sun. But as they currently stand, we're not finding these to be as useful as so many others." However, when weighing against the other choices this week, Mono isn't looking so bad. Of course if you are still working on Skoona, a very top arena creature, you will want to select Koola. It's tough to give a nod to Pteran, mostly because I personally am oversaturated from back when it was a park spawn.
Not very surprisingly, Koola is winning our Discord poll with "whatever crosses my path" a close second.

Free Cash Link
GamePress is excited to be able to provide weekly cash links worth $50 cash in game! The code can only be claimed once a week and you must click on it using the device you play JWA with. It will be active from Monday, 12 PM EST - Sunday, 12 PM EST every week. This is a promotional code provided courtesy of Ludia, Inc and is exclusive to GamePress. We will post this link in an article we publish each week. We will post all articles on our Twitter so follow us at NewsJWA on Twitter so you don't miss out!
If you enjoy our content, please help let others know this is the source of the cash links people just post for the taking all over social media. The same goes for YouTubers PokeFodder, Gaming Beaver, and Gaming Ells. All links have a purpose behind them, and that is to promote some kind of media and drive traffic. Most people simply do not know there is actually a purpose behind these links, and we'd like to try to educate as many as we can. Take a moment to politely explain this in these posts. It isn't free money some random stranger on the internet whipped up. Every time these links are shared, it is taking opportunity away from an intended purpose. Please think about that or maybe find some time to visit Gaming Beaver, PokeFodder, Gaming Ells, GamePress JWA, and the Ludia social medias.
*We can not control when Ludia officially deploys these links, but these are the times they are planned to be active.
This will be a great week effectively covering three themes over Event Drops, Strikes, and Trials. New for 2021, we are going to reach out for more community input on these weekly event roundups. Come join up and let us know what you plan to dart! We look forward to your input and hope to see you on there!
