Ghost Rider 5* worth R5 (maxing)?

Basically the discussion title...

I’m having mixed answers in my alliance, but most are saying he should definitely be my first R5.

However, I feel like the more “experienced” members say I shouldn’t for some reason...

Yes or no?

And please explain answers if you can😊

Thanks so much everyone!


  • His base damage isn’t great considering he’s god tier but all his ability’s make up for it I regularly use him to clear entire paths in AW. Especially the regen and power drain.
    Well worth taking him to r5

    I love my GR at R5. I had a mystic gem for so long waiting for voodoo. It never came and looking back, I am glad it was GR. I use him for story, EQ, AQ, AW

    Unfortunately i do not.
  • If you don’t have blade- you should wait
    Blade makes all of GR judgments 100% to proc

    Without blade you have to count on RNG

    Wait it out brother

    No way
  • Ghost Rider was my first 5 star rank 4 and love him to death but battled if I should max him out. I waited for a while and ended up taking corvus but I don't think gr at rank 5 is a bad choice at all

    Without Blade, GR's chief problem is the RNG on the judgements.

    With Blade, GR's chief problem is that his awesomeness can't be stated enough.

  • I fully believe that if you were only allowed one champ to take into a quest ghost Rider is the best option

    What's ur other options ???

    I didn't take my duped gr to r4, couse I don't like him relying on blade's synergy that much. would prefer some solid champ who doesn't need any synergy - it allows you to form aw attack team with more options, and you don't have to invest in two champs when you really want to use one. also even with how cool he is, gr's utility is for older champs, newer ones usually have passive buffs. I'm not sure, but based on his description it looks like venom strange still will get energy even after gr's sp3, as he is immune to power control (I didn't test it). So as you may see, the meta is shifting while they don't care about keeping older champs great. he is decent, but I would't say he is r5 worthy
  • GR over blade all day

    GR benefits much more from the higher rank because some* people would say his dps is not that great (i think he is above average but could be better)

    If you are finding a r4 blade isn't doing it for you, then no offense but r5ing blade wont make a huge difference and more practice is needed. At r4 blade handles any content just fine including LOL.

    The prestige difference is negligible.

    My oppinion comes from someone who personally r5'd sparky (for more hp, clearing LOL quickly, i get bored easily)
    And medusa (war boss).

    Had the option to do iceman, magik, hype, quake, and of course blade.

    If I had GR, he would have been my first r5 hands down.

  • Nah he’s still good at r4, he’s a utility champ, save r5 for a high damage champ
  • I would say no. He's a good champ just not one of the best champs. Also given the fact that next AW Season will nerf Blade.... No real reason to bring him up. Just my opinion

    This pretty much sums up my feeling on GR. Without Blade... Pretty Good. With Blade, a Godly Champion.
  • Funny thing thing is, both Blade & Ghost Rider are only "Pretty Good" without each other. Like pretty great, but nothing extraordinarily special. But teamed together, they are on a whole other level.

    If you have blade and stark spidey both 5 star then yes for now I suggest you wait. T5 basics are rare to get. :)

    I don’t have Blade or Stark Spidey lol. My options are:

    GR awakened
    AA awakened
    6* LC to R2
