5* Rank 4 - expiring T2A ... utility / synergy champ

SevSynSevSyn Posts: 64
I have preliminarily put them in order which I am considering rank-up for the three classes I also have overflow resources...

I know the answer is most often "it depends"
so for context...
Elder's Bane / Cavalier complete / Labyrinth initial clear complete
Most important - does the champ offer a unique utility or solution to specific node and or champion

Focus content - 100% Act 6, 100% Labyrinth
Secondarily - questing Champions when main Champions are tied up in AW/AQ

please comment if there are unique uses for the Champion, I rarely use any of these options

    Wasp (Unawakened) mainly as Ghost Synergy
    -you are bound to use her, since she's stuck in your team with ghost anyway -sick at defense on stun immune

    Mister Sinister (Unawakened)
    It would also help to know who your current r4+ champs are to consider what utility/specific matchups may not be covered with your existing r4+ roster.

    sym supreme would be good for symbiote synergies if you have venom the duck/venom/carnage; in fact the bonus he gives VTD is worth it alone for me, because VTD starts fight with like 50% progress toward his first Buff
    red hulk is nice for added damage from those charges he accumulates
    dr voodoo awakened is pretty solid for all around utility i feel
    sabretooth i like as well, good utility (along with unique (i think?) iceman-immune), and a unique synergy with omega red that is solid for both champs. synergies with the black panther characters as well, if you have any of them.
    for my own context i'm in act 5 chapter 1 and road to labrynth act 4, so i can't say if they will add to your primary goals or not.

    Mister Sinister (Unawakened)
    Based on your existing roster and goals, I’d go with Mister Sinister. You have a really good roster that covers a lot already, so I see why you’re looking for someone with unique utility more than anything. Mister Sinister is immune to reverse controls, which will be nice to have for the Delirium path in 6.1.6. Can block unblockable specials. Can transfer DOT debuffs. Utility doesn’t get much more unique than his. The rest of your roster seems to cover all usual utility you could need.

    @Kenny292 Thanks Kenny, I was leaning toward Sinister as Mutant Rank-up... Mystic I narrowed to Voodoo vs. Symbiote Supreme the synergy champs may or may not be of diminished returns (I rarely use them, but may be vital in situations I have overlooked)

    For Voodoo, Wasp, and Symbiote Supreme players...

    any unique uses / utility?

    I know Symbiote Supreme is a stagger machine when awakened and max-sig...
    but how is that specifically useful? I haven't quite put that together yet... many mystics can nullify & convert buffs, stagger is almost like a pre-buff nullify... are there any node combinations where stagger is preferred over say Dr. Voodoo's buff-conversion?
  • RagamugginGunnerRagamugginGunner Posts: 2,032 ★★★★★
    R2 Corvus or r5 Void
  • SevSynSevSyn Posts: 64
    Yeah, but T5B decisions will be tough... I'll wait until overflow, because that will give me a better idea what other chapters of Act 6 has in store for us.

    Domino, masacre, rhulk team is awesome. Sabertooth is awesome, even better with OR and KM synergy. That would be my focus personally. Don’t have any experience with sinister so can’t comment.
  • SevSynSevSyn Posts: 64
    @axelelf_1 Thank you!... yeah, I have almost no experience with Sinister either.

    I really do like the "flaming trio" some content creators call it... Domino/Masacre/R.Hulk
    I also like the Ghost/Wasp/Hood trio.

    I'm just looking for additional outside-the-box solutions to in-game content. As developers are creating new node buffs to complex with specific champions in order to increase difficulty/complexity... We (the player base) need to find solutions. There are quite a number of great problem-solving champions in the game, but I'm looking for unique game mechanics or specific solutions that a champion has (which I am unaware due to lack of familiarity with the character, or is clever and I've overlooked).
    Now that we have a diluted champion pool, the utility of each champion is often difficult to elucidate because we typically focus on a subset of characters in order to invest our in-game resources. Due to the limited time some of us have in order to fully explore champions, I easily overlook or miss interesting combinations, mechanics, or play-styles that can be increasingly useful for future content.

    Seems like Wasp vs Symbiote Supreme vs Voodoo
    (I did rank Sinister, going to rank 4 one more... likely one of the three immediately above)

    Any thoughts of why one over another?
