Seeking Act 5.2.6 advice.

dot_dittodot_ditto Posts: 489 ★★★
Ok, so I finally made it to 5.2.6 and I'm lining up my first attempt on the Collector.
I was hoping to come here and ask your opinions on who I should take in ..

I managed to get through 5.2.3 and 5.2.4 using:

5* (R3) Ghost. (0 sig)
5* (R2) Antman (0 sig)
3* Yellowjacket
3* Wasp
5* (R4) Iceman (0 sig)

And now I'm lining up on 5.2.6, however, from what I know of Collector, Ghost probably
won't work too well .. ;)

So here's my top champs ... I'd appreciate any suggestions, etc.

5* (R4) Iceman (0 sig)
4* (R5) Cpt. America (IW) (9 sig)
5* (R3) Ghost (0 sig)
5* (R3) Iron Man (OG) (40 sig)
4* (R5) Gamora (20 sig)
4* (R5) Elektra (59 sig)
4* (R5) Luke Cage (44 sig)
4* (R5) Magik (42 sig)
4* (R5) Corvus Glaive (0 sig)
4* (R5) Dr. Strange (99 sig)
4* (R5) Vision (AoU) (39 sig)
4* (R5) Winter Soldier (62 sig)
4* (R5) Wolverine (79 sig)
4* (R5) Ronan (51 sig)
4* (R5) Daredevil (OG) (2 sig)
4* (R5) Cpt. America (OG) (0 sig)

4* (R4) Hood (40 sig)
5* (R2) Mephisto (0 sig)
5* (R2) Thor (Ragnarok) (0 sig)
4* (R3) Elektro (40 sig)
4* (R3) Iron Fist (OG) (40 sig)
4* (R3) Cyclops (OG) (80 sig)
4* (R3) Black Panther (Civil war) (20 sig)
4* (R3) Magneto (White) (40 sig)
4* (R3) Sup. Iron Man (20 sig)
4* (R3) Iron Patriot (40 sig)
4* (R3) Storm (22 sig)
4* (R3) Ms. Marvel (40 sig)
4* (R3) Magneto (OG) (20 sig)
4* (R3) Spider-man (OG) (65 sig)
5* (R2) Crossbones (0 sig)
4* (R3) Black Widow (4 sig)
4* (R3) Iron Man (OG) (21 sig)
5* (R2) Guilloting (0 sig)
4* (R3) Psylocke (0 sig)
4* (R3) Star-lord (14 sig)
4* (R3) Scarlet Witch (21 sig)
5* (R2) Storm (0 sig)

5* (R2) Star-lord (0 sig)

Couple more .. but nothing notable.

    I was thinking of going with:
    5* (R4) Iceman (0 sig)
    4* (R5) Cpt. America (IW) (9 sig)
    5* (R3) Ghost (0 sig)
    4* (R5) Magik (42 sig)
    4* (R5) Vision (AoU) (39 sig)

    ?? (thinking ghost will still help me get through the rabble, and get to the collector :) )

    The collector fight is a BS fight. The moment he hits you your KO. Therefor only use 20% revive and no health potions.

    Vision to power drain him is good. Magik, by the time you get your 20 hits in to fire a sp2, he will have fired one of his sp and Ko you.

    Best chance is to stun lock him if you can. OG Hulk, LC.... bring in some units around 300-700 depending on your skill and the difficulty of the AI....

    Have fun!

    Yeah, heard that .. :) Mostly just after champ advice based on my roster for now . ;)

    Vision to power drain him is good. Magik, by the time you get your 20 hits in to fire a sp2, he will have fired one of his sp and Ko you.
    yeah, hoping to get lucky with Magik, perhaps get her sp2 lock combo going .. at least until he reaches 40% health .. LOL

    Best chance is to stun lock him if you can. OG Hulk, LC.... bring in some units around 300-700 depending on your skill and the difficulty of the AI....
    Well, no OG Hulk .. my champ list is above ... ;) no point in pointing to a champ I don't have ... :)
    LC? Luke Cage?
    Hmm, ok, I might give him a try .. thanks.

    Stun lock, eh ?
    I do have a stun lock comp:

    4* Ronan
    4* Elektra
    4* Black Widow
    4* Daredevil
    3* Daredevil

    23% power gain ... regardless of buffs, Ronan can stun lock :) wonder if that might work .. LOL

    Does collector have ANY buffs at all at any point ?

    [edit]
    nm, forgot he shrugs stuns off 55% of time .. so i guess stun lock option is out .. :)

    Done that .. again, just seeking suggestions for champ selection based on my roster .. youtube videos help with fight tactics once there .. they don't offer much specific advice based on my roster ... rather, they suggest champs I don't have .. :)

    Thanks for trying to help .. :) (not sarcastic .. how to do that online, lines like that always sound sarcastic .. lol)
    I do appreciate the feedback :)

    IF you don't have any of the suggested Champion's, just go in with what you got. Like I mentioned before, it is a BS fight. If I remember well his SP are unblocable and you need very high skills to Evade them ( which makes no sense, because you would need to spend a lot of units just to practice on the collector)

    SO the strategy is simple, outlast him by using only 20% revives, no health potion, hit him with hard hitters, then get KO, revive....Rince in repeat. Eventually you will get him down.
  • HENRIQUE_FORTEHENRIQUE_FORTE Posts: 332 ★★
    If I remember correctly his SP1 is unblockable only when he his below (around) 40% health and will kill you straight away. Maybe Magik can power lock him before that point? Just guessing, since at the time I didn't have one.

    I remember a guy that oneshot him using Vision, because he kept power draining/stealing him. You have one also, might work...
  • dot_dittodot_ditto Posts: 489 ★★★
    yeah, I think Vision and Iceman are a given at this point :) I'm trying to decide on the other 3 .. now .. hehe

    would this be too crazy to try:

    Iceman
    Vision

    Cyclops (classic)
    Cyclops (new xavier)
    magneto (red)

    for the +24% atk boost .. and I focus on Iceman/vision ?

    I mean, I know I'll need revives anyway ... and I have no team revives at moment, but swimming in single revives .. sooooo ... :)

    would dropping everything into Iceman/vision be worth ? via synergies ?

    (Iceman simply because he's my biggest champ ... *shrug* )

    A friend did it with 5/50 Sabretooth(unduped), 5/50 Majik(duped), 5/50 Starky(unduped), 4/40 Killmonger(duped), and I think 4/40 Luke Cage. Keep in mind he used around 300 units. Idk if this helps.
  • dot_dittodot_ditto Posts: 489 ★★★

    yeah a bit . I keep seeing Luke Cage come up ..

    I keep trying to come up with a team with him ..

    thinking Daredevil + Luke Cage ... at least some synergy there ... *shrug* ..

    but would they really do any better than my iceman? that's the question :) hehe

    If Iceman is my best bet (due his simply being higher rank) .. and I think he probably is my single best option ...

    should I worry about the other 4 ? (I don't have any team revives) .. and focus on synergies, and using them to get to collector ?

    or are there champs (Like Magik / Vision ) with their power drain who can swing the battle a bit to make up for the lower rank ? :)

    I'm thinking:

    IceMan
    Vision

    For sure ..
    but not sure about the other 3:

    Go for synergies?
    Cyclops, Cyclops, Magneto ?

    or go for stacked team ...

    (pick 3 from:)
    Ghost
    Corvus
    Luke Cage
    Daredevil (OG)
    Cpt. America (IW)
    Magik
    Gamora ?? :)

    DD og, is great to evade the SP1 of the collector 😉
  • dot_dittodot_ditto Posts: 489 ★★★
    Thanks all !!

    Just completed it ... wasn't "too" bad ... really .. ;)

    I finally decided on this team comp:

    5* Iceman
    4* Vision
    5* Ghost
    4* Ant-man
    3* Wasp

    :)

    I used Ghost to clear the path to Collector ..
    used 30 units on an atk boost, used some other stored boosts ...
    1 revive (I messed up vs Old man Logan) and a few dozen lvl 1 and lvl 2 heals .. *shrug* .. had tons :) )

    Vs Collector went better than expected:

    1 lvl 1 team revive (practice runs ... 3* wasp doesn't last very long vs collector .. LOL )
    6x lvl 2 single revives ...

    I got nowhere with Vision ... he was a dud for me .. *shrug*

    Iceman did well initially, but once Collector was below 50% .. I switched to Ghost, and did very well with her.

    Woohoo!! :)

    Again .. thanks for the advice all!

    Do you made the run immediately after completing 5.2.5?
    I just finished that round, adrenaline is high :D and wondering if I should just press on.

    Congrats and I hope to come join the club shortly.

    Thanks!!

    A good strategy is to use classic Hulk, and 20% revives. Hulk does more damage the lower his health is. I got some more for you I just gotta get ready for work.

    For me, Scarlet Witch killed the collector the first time, with assists from X23, Drax, Starlord and Quake. All 4* 5/50, all max sig.

    Basically, yes .. I cleared 5.2.5 a few days ago, took a step back, did my research on 5.2.6 and collector .. and figured, to ask a bit of extra suggestions on my specific roster ... :)

    As it turns out, Ghost really is THAT good ... O.o

    LOL

    Working on the Avengers Uncollected now ... and once she gets free from AQ, I'm going to hit it hard with Ghost + Iceman . ;)

    They're definitely putting the work in for me .. for sure!! LOL

    Well, that sounds great, but since I don't have Hulk .. that doesn't really help .. LOL

    It's why I posted my roster ... I see so many people offering advice "Use xxx" champ .. works best ..

    but if you don't have that particular champ, the advice is - unfortunately - useless .. *shrug*

    So yeah, glad Hulk works for you ... but not everyone has him .. so we gotta work with what we got!! :)

    Use them. Get Collector to the corner, ground and pound. Once all your team members are out, single revive only either CG or LC. They will survive a few more hits before getting KOd again. Less units than using team revives.
