JWA Weekly Event Oct 4 - Oct 10: Wild Card

Submit Feedback or Error


Explorers! The early information we were provided is official, this week we will see all that is Wild Card with a sprinkling of Smiling Day in the middle. Let's go over 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 - Tuesday: 27 Attempts

  • Dilophosaurus Gen 2 (Global Anytime) (Dilophoboa>Spinoconstrictor, Tyrannolophosaur>Tenontorex)
  • Inostrancevia (Local 1 Day/Dawn/Dusk) (Inostherium, Edaphocevia, Dodocevia)
  • Tanycolagerus (Global Anytime) (Quetzorion)

These options are a bit of a snooze fest with two being available everywhere, all the time. We'd surely recommend targeting Inos due to it being local locked. The others do create much better hybrids, however, and you will need quite a lot of the DNA for them. You might be just as well to save some energy and dart whatever you stumble across.

Featured Creatures: Rares

Wednesday - Thursday: 18 Attempts

  • Carnotaurus (Friday ) (Purutaurus>Carnotarkus, Scorpius Rex Gen 2>Scorpius Rex Gen 3, Indotaurus)
  • Deinotherium (Park Anytime) (Andrewtherium)
  • Nasutoceratops (Event Exclusive) (Carbotoceratops>Testacornibus, Megalotops)

First, it is important to note we again only have TWO DAYS for the rare attempts this week due to Legendary Sunday. Make sure you get yours done by 10am Eastern Friday, as you don't want to leave any behind. This sure is a tough one. We would normally be all over the Event Exclusive Nasuto, but Carno is crazy tempting. You need SO MUCH to build its amazing hybrids, and the opportunity to find these in the wild only comes around once a week. We do have the raid boss to supplement a little, so we'll give a slight edge to Nasuto on its exclusivity. You may even split your attempts in the spirit of the short time frame. We can't find a reason to choose Deino over the others, even if you do have limited access to parks. 

Featured Creatures: Epics

Friday - Saturday: 9 Attempts

  • Megalotops (Event Exclusive)
  • Thylacotator (Event Exclusive)
  • Tsintaosaurus (Global Day/Dawn/Dusk) (Tsintamoth)

You'll surely want to go for the hybrids here in order to save yourself the DNA and coins it costs to fuse them. Unless your Thyla is level 30, this is our top recommendation. Marsupial Lion is event exclusive and very hard to come by, so this is one of the harder hybrids to create and level. 

Featured Creatures: Legendaries

Sunday: 1 Attempt

  • Coelhaast (Event Exclusive)
  • Tsintamoth (Event Exclusive)

We highly recommend you use this attempt on Coelhaast. Not only is it dominant in its rarity, but it is comprised of an Event Exclusive ingredient in Haast Eagle. The pieces to make Tsinta are available in the wild, and this creature doesn't currently have much use in the game. 

Strike Events, Trials, Scents, Treasure Chase, and Hybrid Pursuit!

Strike Events & Trials

Strike Events & Trials will also be Wild Card themed and reward the same creatures found at event drops for successful completion. As MRhino & TenRex were included in the advanced info (but noted they would not be found at Event Supply Drops), we speculate there may be a very tiny chance to receive some of that DNA from the towers. 

The Wild Card Strikes & Trials will only be Monday and Friday through Sunday to make way for the Smiling Day theme on Tuesday and Wednesday. As we were told in the advanced information, the following creatures will be rewarded with successful completion:

  • Allosaurus
  • Dimetrodon Gen 2
  • Purussaurus Gen 2
  • Tarbosaurus
  • Velociraptor
  • Albertosaurus
  • Andrewsarchus
  • Carnotaurus
  • Gorgosaurus
  • Proceratosaurus
  • Tyrannosaurus Rex Gen 2
  • Acrocanthosaurus
  • Allosaurus Gen 2
  • Baryonyx
  • Secondontosaurus
  • Tyrannosaurs Rex

We will only have one dinosaur specific strike this week, an Epic strike on Friday that will feature Ankylodicurus! We've also got the regularly scheduled Boost Strikes on Wednesday (Attack), Thursday (HP), and Friday (Speed) with an Emote strike on Tuesday and a Title strike on Saturday.


We have a basic scent strike on Monday and Thursday will bring Raptor scent. This scent can draw the following creatures when activated:

  • Deinonychus (Common)
  • Velociraptor (Common)
  • Charlie (Rare)
  • Delta (Rare)
  • Echo (Rare)
  • Utahraptor (Rare)
  • Blue (Epic)
  • Dakotraptor (Epic)
  • Pyroraptor (Epic)

Treasure Chase

On Sunday, we will have the treasure chase where the chests refresh hourly for you to collect up to 25,000 coins! The boxes reset at 8pm Eastern, so you actually have a chance for up to 50,000 coins if you are able to max both time frames.  

Hybrid Pursuit

This week will begin the Dodocevia pursuit with common Inostrancevia.

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, 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.
