Should I be bummed about 5* IMIW

I mean, I just don’t see any amazing damage. I know he’s a sick defender in AW but I’m struggling to see his offensive side- anyone know how to get the most damage out of this dude (or should I say ‘dud’?)

  • Oh and he's also the best auto fight champ in the game if that matters to you.

    I been using mine for aq for months at rank 4 as 5*. Amazing both defensive and offensive. He’s very sustainable with those armour ups takes barely any block damage and when you get hit while an armour up is active you take hardly any damage since the armour is very strong.

    He's a little slower on the damage, but everything else makes up for it. He's a utility champ like IM should be.

    Complain post about getting 5* IMIW? Hadn’t seen this one

    It’s rather refreshing. Sure beats the usual dead horse topics. Such as: nerf “champ so an so”; as well as the threads demanding rank down tickets.

    But to bring this thread back on topic; I suggest you test out IMIW tc. Use him in the arena and daily catalyst quests. Get a feel for how he operates before deciding to invest resources in him or not.

    I have mine at R4 and he is great on offense. I use him daily as an attacker
  • Imiw is great

    1) take him to UC EQ 2.1 boss, Sabretooth
    2) casually slap him silly and spam your (unblockable) sp1 to heal block and fry his a##.
    3) note how you have yet to take a hit while he's done in before you've rung up 30 hits.

    how's that for starters
  • He doesn't take initial coldsnap damage from Iceman, with his Armour ups he doesn't take bleed damage. Sp1 heal blocks, sp2 does incinerate damage. His heavy does armour break, so hes pretty good up against Emma Frost too. I use him in AQ alot.

    He was my 4th 5* champ and still one of my favorites
    Amazing block prof
    Heal block on heavy and sp1
    Sp3 plasma charge which not only deals good damage but also refreshes with each hit

    I have him as a 6* on my main account
    At first i thought it was CapIW
    And was about to say "wtf" to the "not seeing good damage" 😂😂
    IMIW doesnt have huge damage but his utility is where its at
    You can get plasma charges, and refresh them endlessly if you can manage it
    Hes a beast defender Dup

    He has good power control, and decent damage if you work him right.
  • He's not even that good in defence anymore.
  • He is DOT champ with power control and a ton of other utility on top of that. His main damage comes from getting as much DOT on as possible and keeping it there, which also gives you power control. Once you get the hang of him on attack you will love him.

    I like Modok better. :D
  • Thanks everyone for all the replies.
    I guess that, after having read the responses, IMIW is a utility god rather than a damage god, much like Killmonger. I’ve seen a couple of videos and they seem concordant with what you guys are saying.
    I think I was just hoping for a damage god, but if he’s got heal block, DOT and a bunch of other abilities, I don’t think I should be disappointed in my pull at all! 😌
    Thanks again everyone!

    I actually feel the same. Pulled him from my Dhampir crystal.

    We have several duped IMIW 5-50 for def. I won't have the cats to take him to R4 for a while. And even then: I won't be duping him anytime soon.

    Even then, he barely gets any kills on def. I know that I'm a happy summoner if I get 5 in a row because I beat him without losing health (little bit of Block dmg, nothing major) while we win on diversity.

    As for DoT: It's too much hassle to get that plasma **** going. I have other champs who would finish fights before I even get one.
  • Sp3 can do 10k per second on the plasma

    Bring him to Monthly UC 3.2 Iceman; without coldsnap immune you'll lose half your roster.
  • Marri_2Marri_2 Posts: 279
    Yeah, already have ST for that

    For a real idea of how good he is take him against domino in deadpool Valentine's day event on epic he was one of the best counters for her

    I think you're doing it wrong if that's the case.

    5* Iron Man IW is amazing.

    I have one and his block is great and his plasma also does decent damage.
