Mephisto - pre fight option?

dot_dittodot_ditto Posts: 489 ★★★
Was just playing with Mephisto recently, and realized something odd ... he gets up to 3 persistent charges (ie souls), and he uses them in fight when low health to heal up ..

In addition to that, he should/could have a Pre-fight option to use a charge to heal between fights.

As it is now, if you have 3 charges, and are at half life (for example) ... you won't gain another charge, nor heal if you fight again .. unless you let them take you low .. O.o

A pre-fight option would allow to leverage those charges more efficiently.

Mephisto isn't a super strong champ, so this minor tweak wouldn't break him, it would just him some really nice sustain ... might make hime "great again"?

LOL

    The charges won't get used if you are a good enough fighter with him. Simple. And I feel we need other more needed champs buffed before Mephisto

    Unless they've changed something, he starts with 3 charges and gains an additional at the start of each fight. As long as you don't use your sp1 or get low on health, he can get up to 6 charges....

    Congrats on being a better player than me .. I guess since if you're good enough, we can do away with all the regen on all the champs then? since they're not needed?
    (I believe you're completely missing the point, by the way ... but whatever .. *sigh* )

    I guess sarcasm wasn't a good tool here. While I agree his Regen can be useful and he is somewhat good in some scenarios he don't need a buff ATM imo. Many other champs need it way more than Mephisto does.

    You gain one everytime you defeat an opponent. You spend one when you use your L1 to cause soul imprisonment. There are also synergies that can add souls.

    Yeah, I know it adds one after each opponent ... I'll have to re-test .. though.

    I was making a run through first Chapter of Road to labyrinth with my 5* for pts towards Mystic Class Specialist ...
    I never made it to my sp1 .. killed them with 1 or 2 hits ... always had 3 charges all the way through .. O.o

    Let me re-test all that though ... pay more attention to things. :)

    So yeah, re-tested the persistent charges, works fine (obviously) . I probably wasn't paying full attention to them at the time :)

    Regardless ... I still think the ability to spend a charge during pre-fight would be a good idea .. :)
    Buff - yes by the strictest sense .. but not really much of one, just allowing to do what he already does, just at a different time .. *shrug*

    I wasn't arguing against your suggestion, it is a cool idea. The one reason I could think of that would stop Kabam from implementing it is Heal Block. Obviously if it is a Heal Block node, they could block the pre-fight ability. But if you were fighting Sentinel (as an example), the pre-fight ability would defy Sentinel's ability to Heal Block with his L1 during a fight...there would be no way to account for it.
