JWA Weekly Event Sep 27 - Oct 3: Raid Festival Part 2 & High HP

Submit Feedback or Error


Explorers! This week is going to be another busy week of darting some amazing options as we continue Raid Festival. 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: 36 Attempts

  • Dilophosaurus Gen 2 (Global Anytime) (Dilophoboa>Spinoconstrictor, Tyrannolophosaur>Tenontorex)
  • Dimetrodon Gen 2 (Global Anytime) (Monolometrodon>Monolorhino)
  • Monolophosaurus Gen 2 (Local 4 Anytime) (Monolometrodon>Monolorhino, Scorpius Rex Gen 2>Scorpius Rex Gen 3)
  • Suchomimus (Battle Exclusive) (Suchotator>Thylacotator)

Unlike last week where it was just as well to dart anything, we really will suggest putting your time in to finding Mono2. This one is responsible for an incredible stable of hybrids, and you will need thousands upon thousands if you want to level them all up. Suchomimus isn't a terrible choice when considering it is battle exclusive and helps create the formidable Thylacotator. The others can be found everywhere, all the time, and are really not worth spending your limited attempts on.

Featured Creatures: Rares

Wednesday - Thursday: 18 Attempts

  • Dilophosaurus (Event Exclusive) (Ovilophosaurus, Diloranosaurus>Diloracheirus)
  • Tyrannosaurus Rex Gen 2 (Global Day/Dawn/Dusk) (Indominus Rex Gen 2>Indoraptor Gen 2/Indotaurus, Tyrannolophosaur>Tenontorex)
  • Tuojiangosaurus (Global Anytime) (Diorajasaur, Tuoramoloch)

First, it is important to note we again only have TWO DAYS for the rare attempts this week due to Legendary & Unique weekend. Make sure you get yours done by 10am Eastern Friday, as you don't want to leave any behind. As far as Exclusivity goes, you'd want Dilo highest on your list. Datamine suggests Oviloph ("Sunshine") may be getting a hybrid at some point, so it would be good to stock up on an event exclusive when you can. The others aren't bad choices despite being global. Trex2 creates multiple hybrids upon hybrids, and of course Tuoj is used for two oft used raid creatures in Dio & Tuora.

Featured Creatures: Epics

Friday: 9 Attempts

  • Rajasaurus (Local 2 Anytime) (Rajakylosaurus>Diorajasaur)
  • Sonorasaurus (Event Exclusive) (Skoonasaurus)
  • Tyrannosaurus Rex (Global Anytime) (Indominus Rex>Erlidominus, Indoraptor>Trykosaurus)

IIt is also important to remember we again only have one day to do all 9 of our Epic attempts. This week our choice is much easier, and that is of course the event exclusive Sonora. We all know how incredible Skoona is, and we also know how rare it is we get to dart Sonora in the wild. We won't even spend time on why the others are even worth yours. Just dart the Sonoras.

Featured Creatures: Legendaries

Saturday: 1 Attempt

  • Ankyntrosaurus (Event Exclusive) (Trykosaurus)
  • Paramoloch (Event Exclusive) (Tuoramoloch)

We aren't going to break down Sunday, as there is only one option so get out there and dart your Diloracheirus. As far as these two go, we'll lean toward Paramoloch because Tuora is such a crucial raid creature. Ankyntro isn't bad, and Tryk does still appear in the arena despite the change to resilient. Free legendary DNA is always welcome, so above all, just be sure to do one!

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.

Parting Words

This is another great week that will help us improve our raid squads with some added variety with other themes for strikes and trials (which both include much opportunity for event exclusive dina). 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!
