What's up with Mesmerizied?

Mesmerizied! Why? So there's a 7% chance that the attacker stuns for doing exactly what they're supposed to do; ATTACK. I think the game would be better without nodes that punish players for attacking. Because we absolutely have to attack, outside a few characters.

  • I remember back in my day when mesmerized showed its ugly face. We had 0 (ZERO) champs with True Strike.

    Now there are options now.

    Not me. :D :D But my memory is really bad then, because none of the champs who have true strike now, wasn't in the game 2 years ago.

  • Though I do agree Mesmerize is kind of an old trick, I thought Kabam were trying to walk away from these earlier nodes that basically punished you for not having a specific champion/champions.

    Yes, he has "enemy evasion reduction" not "true strike"

    Karnak had true strike but besides that, BW could completely bypass mesmerize by AAR.
  • ... all of them came after is my point. Iceman, Karnak, AA, etc, etc.....

    and yes, BW was the only option if maxed at the time. Pre 12.0 nerf

    So use champions that don't need as many hits.

    AA, Quake, Void, 1-2 hit heavies...

    Yeah but he was the next best thing, Evade Chance Reduction and Tenacity in case they did get a Stun off.

    True, Crossbones too.

    Cable as well, technically. Rogue and Iceman beat it as well by coming out of the stun before the enemy can do anything.

    On the other hand, it never triggers when they are stunned, so it's not that hard to play around with any champion, not just the specific counters.
  • Oh can't forget Black Panther Civil War, also Mordu later on.
  • CoatHang3rCoatHang3r Posts: 2,088
    Uh you needed a specific champion back in the day? Could just use 5/5 limber and situational awareness.

    What I have been doing to reduce the chance is only use 2 or 3 hit combos instead of 5. Happens way way less.

    use icey to shrug off that bs non sense node in trials

    me to on top of that, i have 3 points petrify and hit only after parry stun

    Just use heavies and specials no problem
  • Timone147Timone147 Posts: 575
    Parry + heavy until parry + special can do wonders in this game
  • Mordo doesn't have to worry about Mesmerize

    True strike didnt cut evasion back then..hitting while opponent is stunned works fine.what gets me is mezmerize is 70% instead of 7% chance in real life lol

    You can also just parry and attack while the defender is stunned. You will never get hit by mesmerize this way

    Yep, if you don't have a good champ for this just do this strategy. I like to parry then MLM and back off.
  • nebneb Posts: 415
    I run max limber. Rogue doesnt get stunned at all when mesmerize procs.
  • Hammerbro_64Hammerbro_64 Posts: 2,804
    It’s all in the masteries. Max parry stupefy and limber and you’re set. The duration of your parry covers for 3 hits, and on the off chance you attack when they aren’t stunned, and they evade, limber eats it up to amount to nothing (not really, but it’s no problem. Like 0.1 secs)
  • Just use blade, take him to max power and don't use specials then anytime he gets stunned it'll be gone pretty much instantly

    I used Corvus with his true strike up, still got evaded and stunned. Not sure how that works

    GOOD GOD! JUST USE AN ANIT-EVADE CHAMPION! Kinda like...

    Killmonger
    Heimdall
    Iceman
    Venom (against Spider-Verse Champs & champs with 18% or less HP)
    Corvus Glaive
    Karnak
    Archangel (Awakened)
    Crossbones
    Night Thrasher

    Or, take advantage of the Agression Regeneration & reverse the healing, without landing a punch, by using...

    Void (Awakened)
    Cap IW
    MODOK

    Or, use a Champion nearly unaffected by Stun, including...

    Mordo
    Medusa (Awakened at high Sig)
    Rouge (with max Limber mastery)

    Or, last but not least... just do the “Parry, Double Medium” method. C’mon guys, use your heads. This game takes wits & strategy, like it or not. There are several counters to Mesmerize, & I probably didn’t even cover them all. This is by far the easiest day of the event, in my honest opinion.
