Ægon or Ghost?

So after many long months of horrible pulls that make me want to quit, I finally got a good string of pulls on my alt. I was able to get Ghost and Ægon. They are both at 3/45 and I have very limited gold and ISO so I am trying to rank smart. Which one should I rank and how far should I go? I’ve asked a few others but decided to get some additional input.

•Ægon is sig 80 (~52% of his combo carries)
•Have a possible generic awakening I could use for Ghost, but no tech
•Have an unawakened 5* Wasp I can use for potential synergy as well as 6* Hood. No Antman
•5* 3/45 Proxima on roster for Ægon’s seemingly best synergies
•5/65 CAIW and 4/55 Spark and Domino
•Elders Bane and easy path LOL completed
•No progress in Variant yet on this account

Any insights and information you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I really really love aegon but if you are good with ghost and having a 5* wasp and 6* hood, she seems like a no brainer.
    My aegon and ghost are both R4
    I use aegon way more than ghost, but I will admit I am not the best with her.

    Ghost especially considering your hood and wasp

    Definitely wait until a need is presented. I jus got ghost and I’m waiting too.. I don’t have ægon but I’m not really missing him too bad since he needs like 80 sigs or so..

    Working on ranking 2 my Sabre because I know he’ll be useful and saves units vs iceman...

    If you can’t wait, I’d do ghost because of the immunity and there’s almost a guarantee of Kabam knowing which node to put in Act 6 to nullify Aegon’s counter. With Ghost, however, has immunity and passive furies; the new wave of the game.

    Thanks for the comments so far. Looks like Ghost is the leader so far, but that’s a good point that I should maybe wait and see what Act 6 has in store for us.

    Anyone that has answered Ghost, in your opinion, is she worth the generic? I can only take her to about sig 40.

    I have a ghost at 4/55, she’s different to play and difficult to use. I’ve had her for about a month now and I’m still not really using her in anything. Her sig gives her power when opponents miss, but it’s very little. Play with her awhile and wait for act 6, then decide.

    Ghost for sure. The wasp and hood synergies are beast. Wasp makes her specials unblockable. Think of her like hyperion. Parry and heavy to stack furies and crit. I would awaken her too with that generic. Totally worth it. Practice with her against winter soldier to get her timing right. I have r4 5* unawakened and still use her for war and aq and she wrecks. You'll love her!

    Honestly it all comes down to how well you can play Ghost. She's potentially the best champ in the game, I'm guessing you've seen some pandamanpete videos? If not I highly suggest checking him out. However if you struggle adapting to her style or just flat don't enjoy it or want to play that way Aegon is the pick. He's also the number one labyrinth option in the game, even at R4 he doesn't need any attack synergies to counter the enrage timer. I'd play around with both and see who you like playing more.

    And as far as using a generic on Ghost I'd do it if you're good playing her and choose to rank her over Aegon. I know most see her sig and just take it as "she gains a little power when opponents miss", but there a bit more to it than that. Once she's awakened you'll be using misses during phasing as a strategy and form of power control rather than just a nice benefit. I'm not even close to a Ghost expert but after I pulled the 5* and playing more with her over my awakened 4* I find myself playing a lot different than I was with her duped. Again I'm fairly new to playing Ghost so I'm no authority, these are just the observations I've had since getting her.

    I have an R5 sig 190 Aegon and he eats all content in game. I don’t have a Ghost but I can tell you, you will not regret ranking Aegon at all. He kills it.

    It takes a loong time to get really good with Ghost. Even doing the basics well can take weeks. I've been playing her at rank 5 for a couple of months and I'm good with her but still make enough mistakes to need more practice. Even with those mistakes BTW she's been incredible. Took down pretty much every path in uncollected and blasted through the captains challenge with 3 revives
