YOUR Most Used 4/55 Champ... Advice On Who to R4 For Act 5

Hey guys, I'm level 54 and looking for advice on the most beneficial, stand alone (no synergies or awakened dependencies), champ to rank up at this point in the game. I am looking to rank a champ that would be the most useful for Act 5 (I haven't started). Preferably, this champ also be useful for Monthly EQ, hence me asking the more veteran players who they still use a lot (if they use the champs that I have). Here is my 5* roster:

rmqrblaoexi4.png

My first thought would be to R4 Blade (since he's popular) but if the game is moving in a direction that's going to nerf him or make him not as beneficial, then I'm willing to wait for my others. Another reason to do Blade is because I can do it much sooner, just waiting on basic cats. The others will take months accumulating the tier 4 cc. But again, if people suspect that Blade is losing value then I can wait for the suggested more beneficial champ.

If you have any comments that would help my insight on rank up decisions I'm very welcome to those as well.

Thanks for your two cents guys!

    Blade is fantastic for the last 3 bosses in act 5. Cap is also amazing.

    Would probably agree with iwcap, if you had awakened blade he would be the play tho. The regen is so valuable for that but can’t go wrong with your cap for now 👍

    Most Benifical to you will be CapIW, Corvus is great for short bursts but r4 vs r3 isn’t much difference till you go deep in the content. Blade can do LOL easy run, that’s who I’d consider most. Always look ahead to where you’re going, Voodoo was helpful for a lot of people in Act 5 but has since been benched. Corvus can’t do LOL and CapIW can’t do LOL so keep that in mind as well. CapIW and Corvus are both short term boosts and booth are good at what they do at r3.

    Voodoo is my #1 champ with Blade a close second. Both 4/55, but both also duped.

    I would go with CaptIW in your case for the reasons posted above. Red Hulk is also good if you're looking for poison immunity (needed in Act 5 and AQ) and he doesn't need the dupe.

    Blade can also go 4/55 without the dupe, his power management is easier without it but you also don't have his regen (bit of a double-edged sword).

    Don't have much experience with Corvus or the upgraded Venom.

    Modok is decent on attack and defense. His autoblock is very handy if you slip up and had good incinerate damage (not many immune to that).

    Why cap iw can't do lol?

    I just ranked him to R4 and was hoping he was my best choice for lol alone with my 6 star hela. Other than them I had bad luck.

    From my experience he's REALLY good at losing.

    True lol
  • ChuckiesolChuckiesol Posts: 58
    Wow thanks everybody for the input so far (minus the Groot suggestion lol its nut how little damage he does)! I definetly gained a lot of insight reading all of your responses. It seems like it there's good points for Cap IW, Blade, Corvus and Voodoo, slight edge towards cap tho... seems like a tricky one.

    WOW a lot of narrow minded about Groot I feel sorry for you all.

    Blade
    Assuming you have trinity. Blade will be extremely handy on final chapter.
  • ChampioncriticChampioncritic Posts: 2,664 ★★★★

    Corvus cause he can shut down abilities that involve armor by armor breaking them, can bypass autoblock/evade with proxima synergy, can potentially burst down an opponent before you take too much damage

    Can you solo the final chapter with Blade? I don't have the trinity in 4*'s. I have in 3*. So not really an option if there are damage nodes...

    I understand Act 5 is a lot of taking down opponent before sustaining too much damage... but Heretodie above was saying that the difference between r3 Corvus and r4 Corvus won't be as substantial as r4'ing someone else. What do you think?

    So are you going to be specific on how good Groot is or are you going to keep dodging?

    I'm not near the final chapter yet so i can't advise haha. I at most beat the collector.

    It most definatly is. I was unable to use my r3 corvus in act 5.4 but I took him to r4 and cleared all of 5.4 in 2 hours. I one shot 5.4 Ultron with my r4 corvus, the difference is very significant. I could run all of act 5 with only a r4 coruvs, except 5.3 (weakness).

    r4 corvus ultron two shot
    edit: this is NOT me, I couldn't find any one shot ultron videos on youtube with a r4, and I didn't record mine :/

    Corvus Glaive
    Corvus is the strongest standalone champ of the bunch and if you can get that first charge, he will simply destroy most paths in act 5.
  • belli300belli300 Posts: 699 ★★★
    Blade
    If you have not finished act 5 100% not taking blade up would be the silliest move possible blade was designed to beat act 5.4

    CapIW is based off parrys and building kenetic charges, since LOL has limber this won’t last long, on top of that the enrage timer is not your friend. His L2 can do some serious damage but other then that he doesn’t have any increased damage out put like AA/X23/GP/Medusa/Blade/Hyperion.... you have to bare in mind all but 2 fights have 1.5 million health so these aren’t fast fights. Not to say he can’t do it, but it will end up costing you a lot more then other hero’s.

    I did mine with X23 first run as I don’t have a lot of “good” options. I since pulled Domino so that’s my next r5 and LOL/Variant homie
