Human Torch: Worth a Class Awakening Gem?

10or_Strong10or_Strong Posts: 1,140 ★★★
I'm wondering if Human Torch is worth a science awakening gem? I understand his sig ability, and I find it useful on my main account, but I just got him as one of the first 5*s on my alt account. I have a science gem and no other 5* science champs, with 5*s still quite rare on that account. I just finished my initial pass through Act 4 and am starting to both explore Act 4 and work towards Uncollected.

    His sig is very useful on paths where you will continuously use human torch over and over, in which case if you use his pre-fight ability in the first battle, you can subsequently get back his pre-fight ability through the next few battles. However, i think its quite likely you'll only use his pre fight ability on the final boss or something, so i dont think its worth the gem, you can afford to let him be naturally duped.

    Sometimes it depends on circumstances... i had two science 5* AG sitting there waiting for void and caiw... been sitting there for a while, recently pulled ANOTHER science gem... so once i was sitting on 3, and ive got a R4, HT... it seemed silly not to use it.

    Tough call. HT was my first 5* R4, and I've put a ton of mileage on him. I was lucky to dupe him a month ago and it was a huge help in finally exploring Act5. I would typically use him with flame-on early in a quest for a tough matchup, then against all mystics which would get the rekindle lit along the way for the boss fight. You can plan ahead to do the same in AQ / AW.

    The upside is that he's valid for a ton of content you have in front of you on that account.

    Your call of course, but there no "bad decision" either way.
  • Any type of Champion that has the new Build-Up Attack system always benefit greatly from Awaken plus multiple Signature Levels. He's my favorite Science-Class for his fiery modules although I only have him as 3-Star after recently pulling 4-Star Invisible Woman from the Mole Man Expedition Special Event Quest.

    Thanks everyone for the additional input on this old post. :smile: I had ended up using the gem on my secondary account HT and he's now at R4. The ability to potentially use that pre-fight ability multiple times in some of the tougher quests definitely comes in handy.
