    He’s an absolute killer. I used a 4* 5/50 with suicides and some boosts for a decent chunk of Variant ch. 3.
  • Have Corvus as an R2 6*. Obviously love him. His charges running out sucks sure, so for harder content where the nodes have 200k+ health I’m not in a hurry to bring him.

    But I don’t so much care about that. He’s just straight up fun to use. I’ve never had this much fun in monthly EQ’s.

    I really enjoy Corvus Glaive myself, though I totally understand that some would be worried about running out of Glaive charges with him. One way that I like to get some more damage out of him is actually to keep attacking an opponent while they are blocking. It felt really weird at first, since I was used to trying to not do that with other Champions, but since he can trigger Critical Hits through an enemy's block without spending Glaive charges, I can still get some decent damage by doing it.

    Plus while his Glaive's Immunity is active, his SP2 drains 20% of the opponent’s Power if they are at max Power and is also Unblockable, so even if attacking into a block would give the opponent enough power for a SP3, my SP2 can push them back down under 3 bars of Power. I just have to make sure I use the SP2 while I still have Glaive charges.

    Yup. I do MLM combos to maximize damage as well. It’s a bit strange, but you get used to it. Also,Suicides are his best friend. Save some units and unlock them if you run Corvus. He is able to heal himself, and hits that much harder.

    I like using him a lot. The medium-light-medium combo helps keep the charges. Plus he's my avenger killer

    hes better than your best champ which is probably spider man (classic)

    Stark spidey. Corvus can't hold a candle to stark spidey. Stark spidey can kill an opponent with high health. Corvus needs all 4 missions to even have a shot. Stark spidey is great for baiting specials and has an emergency power drain. Corvus doesn't. Stark spidey can handle rol, and lol. Corvus can't. You can't beat stark spidey.

    Have fun taking node 29 with spark

    Finally pulled him as a 4*, he’s pretty fun. I think I’m a bit more of a Proxima fan but CG is pretty awesome. Easily one of my favourite duos released in 2018.

    Why are ppl hating on Corvus? He’s amazing if u know how to use him properly. Even if his charges expire he gets them back after a bit..... So don’t get hit amd light it up again after. He has one of the highest burst dmg output in the game. He clears everything from short aw fights to long variant 3.3 fights.

    People mad that their imiw gets shredded on D or mad that there are people willing to do things like switch masteries and/or boost to maximize his potential when they can't / won't

    I never personally recommend taking Corvus to a high rank to anyone that isn't willing to at minimum use suicides as they usually end up being underwhelmed after watching countless YouTube videos of people max boosted with suicides shredding defenders in war.

    I used corvus for iceman in the maze. Even though it took 2 sets of charges, it was still an easy fight. Just don't get hit by sp1 without any active charges and ride out the cooldown. It's not like he immediately dies when he runs out. Just gotta stretch out the fight a bit

    Trinity Sparky with 10 poise charges is boss. 4 persistent charge Corvus with Proxima Synergy will murderize any Tech Mutie Avenger Evadin' AW boss, thoroughly embarrass any foolhardy IMIW (and Sparky!) before he knows what hits him, and generally make a quest go quicker without having to work too hard. They're both pretty, and it's awesome when you can choose between the two based on need. Such a fun game.

    That depends on your definition of high health. If we're talking the Maze, or Variant (not sure about all of Variant admittedly as I haven't touched it myself) I'd agree Corvus isn't the optimal choice. However with just a single mission complete I'm taking down opponents in 5.4 with 80k+ health pools within the initial 20 crit limit.

    Sure getting the initial charge can at times be a pain, there's even times I'll sacrifice a roster spot for a charge by wearing the opponent down with another champ and letting them die and finishing with Corvus, though that's a rare occurrence. The thing is though once you get that first charge he walks right through whole paths singlehandly almost leaving designated champs for the boss fight untouched. Right now I'm exploring 5.4.5 and my 5/50 Void is unused and ready to solo Meph every time, thanks in a big way to Corvus.

    Just imagine you're an average Marvel Comics fan or even a huge one, and I walked up to you and told you there was an extremely popular Marvel Fighter Game where Corvus Glaive is considerably more powerful and used than other characters like Thanos, Dormammu, and Phoenix... I don't know about you guys but even I, being a fairly average MC fan, would say "W-Why though? That doesn't make much sense..."
    That's my thought's on him, and to an extent other God Tier/Highly Used Champions like Archangle. It works for champions like Iceman or Domino because hey those are characters who in the past have been shown/told to have the ability to be Extremely Powerful.

    rly he only needs 3 missions and he still does a good amount of damage

    You Say Corvus has no “energency power drain” right after Zibiit’s post, which highlights his power control, which is more reliable than Spark’s

    Define “reliable”. Because the way I see it, neither one is really “reliable”. Sparky has a 45 second cooldown on his and needs to pull off a heavy for it to work. Corvus only power drains if he has glaive charges, has an L2, and the opponent is at an L3. If you ask me neither is really reliable like a Vision. Or a Voodoo.

    My 4/55 is crushing a lot of 5.4 exploration right now. I agree he's not good for all content, LOL, Variant etc but he's pretty great for most content.

    Was also very good in maze and variant for me. Basically the only things you aren't doing with him are RoL and LoL. Which means there's far more game content he's very good for than isn't.

    I don't think he's the be all and end all of champions as he's very expensive to use at his max potential as well as has some content limitations, but the people who act like he's this super handicapped champ that's only good for a tiny portion of the game are just wrong.

    You can probably just spawn 6 or 5 star corvus into your account or something. Lol. Jk.

    My thoughts are I still don't have him as a 5* or 6*. I recently finally pulled stark spidey. At one time I would have taken him straight to R5. Don't know if I'll ever rank him at this point. I hope when (if) I ever pull Corvus I don't feel the same way.
