How good is mephisto?

Tiger360Tiger360 Posts: 1,691 ★★★★
Yesterday I opened my fifth 5 star and it rolled over from ghost rider to mephisto. Luckily it stopped there as I was 1 off colossus. Is mephisto any good? I will also post my current 5 star roster below.91r3vs41b8vg.png

    He's all right. He's got some good utility. Don't use your sp1. Instead, save your souls for the heal.

    Btw, you didn't almost get GR or Colossus. You had a 100% to get Meph.

    I know. I heard that before you even open the crystal the champ is decided but sometimes I like to keep my hopes high so when I land next to a good champion I think “darn, almost!” Haha :)
    Thanks for the advice by the way, I heard he’s a good defender

    The reel is a massive troll by Kabam. Save yourself heartache and just pop them.

    Unduped Meph isn't that great of a defender since he can't proc his aura.

    Honestly, I prefer using him as an attacker to make use of his utility. There are too many options now that steamroll him as a defender.

    Oh okay
    Do you think he will help me out for reaching uncollected? I am running a bit of a team around ghost atm but I am strongly thinking of replacing sentry with mephisto

    I would. Then again... replacing Sentry with most anyone is a decent move.

    For Meph, the basic rotation is sp3 when opponent has 2 bars. This will drain their power and give you power gain for the rest of the fight. After that, sp2 to gain a temp aura. Only sp1 if you need to imprison and can spare a soul.

    I just read it’s a perm aura if you sp3 when enemy has 2 bars

    Yep, hence the power gain. Sp2 will be a temp aura on top of that doing more damage and giving you more power.

    That's quite low pi for a 3/45

    Yep :/ masteries all over the place. If I show you a screenshot can you tell me what to fix?
  • TheSquish671TheSquish671 Posts: 2,877 ★★★★★
    Since ghost is your main champ, extended/enhanced fury masteries will be helpful. And 5 points in greater cruelty/precision, dex, parry, the normal masteries. Willpower if you want

    He’s currently my fave character in the game. Grinded back to back to get him as a duped 5* and took him straight to rank 4.
    Was my MVP for the deadpool event and he destroyed Mr Sinister

    Wow! That good? I played around with him today and he’s very fun

    He has some nice synergies with the Champion, symbiote supreme, omega red, and more. I pulled his 6* recently and was pretty happy about it. He definitely has some nice utility.
  • dano357dano357 Posts: 103
    Mephisto is very very good. I took mine to 5/65. He will save you a lot of potions questing and can take the BS out of many of the EQ fights with his soul lock.

    Ideally you want Champion and Morningstar riding with him to get the most out of him.

    Don’t have champ, symbionts supreme or omega :(

    Wow 5/65? Congrats!

    Meph is a Hyp and Medusa killer as well. I don't think he gets enough love overall because he's not a heavy hitter, but his utility is great

    Pair him with the Champion and he's a much harder hitter. I know having Champ is a rarity still but any high ranked Mephisto user would benefit a ton from having him. I only have a 4/40 Meph but I tested him out in ROL without synergies and once with Champ/Sym Supreme/GR and the damage difference was massive. And that was at only 3 souls, at 6 he'd have a lot more pop.
  • Hood is better from your list. Even when unduped.

    are you sure?

    Pretty good. Needs awakening.
  • dot_dittodot_ditto Posts: 1,188 ★★★
    I took my 5* Mephisto to Rank 5 .. because I had no other Mystic .. and he readily shuts down a lot of champs with his ability to totally prevent buffs right the start of a fight (and yes, in some fights, it's better to spam Sp1 to keep his soul imprisonment up) ..

    ie:
    he's great at taking out
    Annihlus - prevents his Cosmic control rod - which prevents him from going unstoppable.
    Hyperion - prevents power gain.
    Medusa - prevents her fury

    etc.

    There's definitely better mystics . don't get me wrong .. but if you don't have another .. or are having trouble pulling one .. Mephisto is a solid choice.

    just be warned .. his all utility . he hits like a wet noodle .. :(

    Definitely feel free to post your masteries if you want advice. I would also suggest going on to auntm.ai if you are interested in costs for upgrading masteries or planning out different mastery setups (or many other in-game uses).
  • Add ghost rider with him 70% more incinerate damage my mephisto

    Mephisto is highly underrated in my opinion, one unique ability, great dmg with the champion synergy I have him as 6* r2 And he will be my first r3 if I didn’t get lucky and pull doom or SS.
  • IronGladiator22IronGladiator22 Posts: 870 ★★★
    Mephisto is a pretty decent champion. Btw I don’t know if you were joking or haven’t played the game in a bit, but colossus got buffed a few months back, and is now very good
