After Using and Leveling up my 6* Sabertooth This Week, I'm not very impressed....

I'm not sure why people like him so much. Really doesn't have much utility, just damage output.

    You need a rank down ticket? I need one too

    Lol, I haven't ranked him up, I've just leveled him up to 25

    Pair him with KM for utility. AAR on every debuff overrides some annoying mechanics like Kingpins rage, AVs tenacity, Crossbones shrug off etc

    And I just so happen to have a duped R4/55 Killmonger :smile:

    That's a pretty good synergy. I also have domino to pair him with.

    Throw in Omega and you'll get bleed on 30% of your basic attacks
  • Not to mention sabertooth can bypass masochism with killmonger synergy

    Nice, I didn't think about that one. I HATE MASOCHISM

    @TRSIMP

    Here is a list ST can bypass that I've compiled:

    ___________________________
    Masochism
    Astral Evade
    Ice armor from reforming
    Cable's degen on bleed
    Reflect stun
    Auto block+
    LC's indestructible+
    Unstoppable+
    Crossbones' fury conversion
    King Groot's shrug off
    Groot's shrug off
    Hood's invisibility+
    Glancing*
    Any buff on hit (fury, armor up, regen, etc.)*
    Doctor Strange's buffs+
    AV's tenacity
    KP's rage
    Electro's thorns+
    Hela's indestructible+
    Limbo on meter gain*
    Starky's evade special

    + = for the .7 seconds, does not remove buff
    * = debuff has to cause buff; buff can reform

    Wow...that's crazy!

    That's how I've been using mine, ever since my immunity path became the masochism path.

    It takes a while to build up your furies, and there is no guarantee he will get a good roll on his persistence charges

    You're crazy.

    My ST destroys everything.

    I blow through path 5 in AW with him, KM and Void.

    Right. I R5-ed mine and I’m super happy with him. Still waiting to get a 5* or 6* KM and/or Void to pair with that badboy

    If I get a bad roll like 3 persistent charges I used him for normal opponents but with 5 to 6 that's when I invested in boss killing
  • He takes some ramp up over fights. I've heard of him soloing RoL Fights in less than 50 hits as a 5* 4/55. Once you Build him up, he's a beast. He's also pretty great on Defense if Awakened.

    I'd gladly trade all 3 of my 6* (bb, kg, and ws) for a 6* st.

    I envy you. I only have maxed out version of him and KM. Gotta love that synergy!

    I've had Sabretooth since he first came out as a 5*. I find him vastly overrated by the masses. He's got some interesting niches, but for the most part he's just okay. Meanwhile CapIW is easily the best champ released since Stark Spidey and no one mentions him much.

    That's how I'm feeling about ST. I do have a cap IW though as a 5* and he's great!

    Part of what makes Sabertooth great is his synergies and higher attack, by himself he seems just okay but teamed up with Killmonger and Void he's amazing. I have a 5* Killmonger r5 and Void r5 and ST at r4 and it's a killer team. I really need Omega Red to throw in there .

    I pretty much runs the same team as you buy I do have OR too. He makes ST a crazy beast.

    How do you have a 6* champ and not know what they do.......?
  • zeezee57zeezee57 Posts: 483
    I wish I got him as my 6*. I'm maxing my 4* versions of him and KM to run with Omega in AQ.

    Personally I’ve loved my 6* sabertooth. Watched a video on how to use him then practiced and never looked back. Content clearer for sure. He pretty much ran all of act 5 chapter 4 and that was without any of his synergies at the time. But to each their own. Use him more build up them furies and do some work. There could have been way worse pulls for you. Like my first one karnack lol
  • He is pretty good and really fun to use. But if you were expecting a game-changer, no, certainly he is not.
