Is Corvus a good first R5 if I never plan to use suicides?

Tried posting this before. Got double posted then both got deleted. So let's give it another try. I never plan to use suicides. I hear everyone say you haven't used Corvus till you've used him with suicides. Do you think he'll do everything I need my top champion to do without suicides?

    Corvus is a good R5 to turn on suicides. He is pretty neutered without it honestly.

    I have 3 r5. Domino (unawakened), blade (sig195), human torch (sig 120). Corvus will be my 4th, I've just recently pulled him. I don't run suicides as my best champs aren't particularly suicide friendly. Without suicides corvus is still the best option for lots of content.

    This poll is a little wonky with the options. I voted no only because any of those three will be a better r5, especially if Blade is duped, but Corvus works fine without suicides. I have a r2 six star one and I very rarely turn on suicides. However, I only use Corvus for AW, so the health pools are substantially smaller than you would see in Act 6. In Act 6, if you want to use Corvus (Which I don't recommend) you need suicides to stand a chance.

    Thanks for the insight. Blade is duped but I honestly don't think I'll be stepping into Act 6 any time soon.

    I don't run suicides and I use my R5 Corvus a ton. It may depend on where you are in the game though. If you're looking to do an Abyss run you're gonna need HT.

    Haha!!!! Abyss! I'm gonna be honest. I haven't even set foot in 5.3 yet. I only have 4 Five stars at R4 and this R5 will carry me for a while.

    Corvus will crush content at that level. Rank him up

    At your stage he's going to be a beast. I used him to clear quite a bit of content up until the health pools outgrow his 20 charges (he still can do those fights, but you gotta wait for him to cycle back). I've never ran suicides. Now working on 6.3. Honestly, by the time you'll need others you can get them ranked.

    I unlocked suicides solely because of corvus, the fact he gains hp with suicides & willpower is a huge game changer, especially for AQ. I understand suicides are stupidly expensive to unlock, but it definitely is worth it.

    Not true at all, does great damage without suicides

    I just started using suicides. With full will power and full bleed suicides, I'm only losing about 7% health max on my non bleed immune champs. Makes a huge difference in damage and my cg regens while the bleed is active. I was very reserved about turning them on but very glad I did

    Sure he does, but his damage is significantly and incomparably better with suicides. Once you've used him with suicides it feels very underwhelming to use him without.

    I’m sorry but Corvus is not worth the resources without suicides. Hits like a baby

    This isn’t true, corvus still puts in work without suicides even in act 6.
    I have a R5 max sig corvus and a R2 6* unduped and I use the 5* in act 6 for some of the paths.
    As long as you can wait out for charges to come back he is a so useful in saving resources and units due to his “immortality” (awakened ability)

    It’s not like he sucks without suicides but he does not do great damage without it. On the other hand he does great damage with suicides. Like I said he’s pretty neutered without it. Suicides make certain champs shine extremely bright and he’s one of those champs.

    I don't have a lot of good 6*s, but just awakened Corvus. I don't run suicides but am wondering whether I should R2 him...What is the concencus?

    yeah he's very good anyway. make a new post so people can help you with more "personalized" advice
  • EtjamaEtjama Posts: 4,515 ★★★★★
    Lol, why'd this thread have to get revived? I now have 11 R5's, am planning to run suicides in 2 months, and have completed Act 6/Explored Act 5. How was I so dumb just 7 months ago? 😂
