Earlier today, there was an issue where Summoners that logged on shortly after the Login Calendar switched over for the day didn't receive the Cosmic Ghost Rider login crystal. We've fixed the issue for players receiving the crystal now but will have to collect data and send out the crystal to all players that didn't receive it next week. We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to making it right for you all.

Why is Mephisto so underrated?

I’m contemplating ranking him up. His soul imprisonment seems like the real deal. What do you guys think?

    He's a really good champion with The Champion and Ghost Rider synergy. He's not the best but a good champion nonetheless, I think he's R4 worthy, not R5.

    Well, Mephisto has some great utility and has been my MVP in certain fights (Sunspot and Aarkus comes to mind).

    He does have relatively low damage, the synergy with The Champion compensates that.

    He shines in short fights, as you can shut-down buffs for free the majority of the fight. In longer fights you don't have enough souls to shut-down buffs all the time. I think if he could remove buffs with his SP3, he would be a more viable champion for such fights.

    True. Thanks for the input 👍🏻

    I’m thinking he’s really good against anihilus, medusa etc with soul imprisonment, incinerate and poison immune, regens and has power control.

    Thinking of taking 6* to R2

    Mephisto was my third 5/65. No regrets. Does all the things you mentioned above and more. If you run with Champion and Morningstar in AQ, he can be a workhorse that doesn't require potions.

    No, the high end damage isn't there, but Mephisto solves a different set of problems.

    He can do really good dmg in longer fights as long as they aren’t incinerate immune. Use his s3 to active the perma incinerate then spam s2 very fast. Will do huge dmg with certain synergy too

    If you want to regen, you are forced to play SP2s mainly, which I do not like.

    I took my 5* to 4/5 the minute I got him.
    He does a ridiculous amount of damage to Movie Marvel and stops Medusa in her tracks with her auto block with his soul imprisonment. His regen is awesome when below 30% and he has 3 or more persistent charges and u get one charge per fight that u win.

    he has his matchups where he shines ,but u can not take him to AW tier 3/4 attack or Even AQ map 6, or u'd time out or have very bad matches in AW due to defense tactics n if u really really want to bring him then u need symbiote supreme n the champion ,so matchups where he shines like a star ,his synergy partner symbiote supreme is freakin sun there, he shreds those matchups much faster then mephisto can ever do.so yeh rankup for fun,favoritism,synergies (blade) but cant rank him up for AW/AQ offense ,those t5b would b wasted on him in my personal opinion but nonetheless ,ur resources ur choice

    Main problem is his damage output, which can be fixed with The Champion synergy. If you add in GR and Sym Supreme, he actually does fairly decent damage. Main problem is his soul imprisonment doesn’t last forever, which makes him slightly less viable for longer matchups, plus he’s gimped against incinerate immune. He’s great at what he does, but not too much else.

    He's not in my books. On my Top Team. No regrets.

    If you don't have sym supreme, doc voodoo, duped magik, gr, duped dorm, then sure. Soul imprisonment wears off and you don't want to waste a soul continuing it over banking those on your regen.
  • WoozieWoozie Posts: 479 ★★
    I took him to 5* R4 and duped purely for the sake of that regen Rogue in Variant 3, and he hits like a wet noodle. In comparison, my 6* Hood I find to be much more damage effective and nullifies/staggers a lot more against Hyp, Medusa etc. and is a much better option.

    I don't think Mephisto is underrated at all, I think people know his abilities in certain situations but like someone else said, if you don't have the other 5 better Mystics then sure he's a good option.

    And when it comes to those Mystic synergies to make his damage better, you might as well rank up those champs and use them instead.

    He's also great for those pesky fights that start with Regen. Used him this month for Guillie 2099, actually. Died out, and used him to stop the Regen with Soul Imprisonment.
