Why I didn't r5 Sabertooth

So today I was able to r5 my 3rd 5*. I've wanted to take Sabertooth up for nearly a month (since I took him to r4). But, he rarely gets more than 3 persistent charges and, at r4, I kill most opponents before I'm able to get 3 furies, especially after already having 3 or 4. So, aside from the greater pool of health, his attack doesn't scale enough because at the lower rank, I'm able to get more furies, making him equal to that of a rank 5 with less furies (and, no, I didn't actually do any math). Instead, I r5'd Omega Red (since I already have an r5 Void).

Anyway, I know an r5 Sabertooth would probably be more viable in act 6, variant, and LOL but for aw, aq, and eq, an r4 Sabertooth is more than adequate.

Was I wrong? What's y'all's opinion.

    I prob would have still done ST but can see your thought process. And I hear OR is also a beast so...

    Omega red is a god. Smart choice.

    Forgot to mention, omega is sig 200 while sabertooth is unduped (not that his sig is a game changer).
  • Congrats on the omega r5. At sig200, he's ridiculously good. You made the right call imo

    Yeah just watch some Brian Grant and you'll see some great Omega Red gameplay.

    In that situation, I would have probably ranked up Omega Red also. Not a knock on Sabertooth, but I would be thinking a similar thought: Omega Red benefits more from the rank up than Sabertooth in my opinion because Sabertooth's furies can partially make up the gap.

    Or will probably have more utility for the future

    I've seen the same reasoning used to not rank up Starlord. I probably would have done Omega as well.
