**WINTER OF WOE - BONUS OBJECTIVE POINT**
As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

Advice please: which ag should I go for?

Hi,

I'm currently saving up for the chronometer but I'm not sure which class ag I should go for.
I finished act 5 100% recently, my next goals will be cavalier and variants. So I'd like to awaken someone who can help with that.
Here are my options:
Corvus (my only r5), Proxima, Medusa, Archangel, Magik, She Hulk, Guillotine 2099
And my most recent pulls: Havok and Doom

What would you do in my place? Any advice would be appreciated 😊

Anna

    Both Medusa and Corvus are nice awakened, and Guillotine 2099 does not need it at all.

    I’d say Medusa, but I could also see Corvus.

    Corvus or Doom, but get Doom to r5 ASAP!

    Corvus awakened is a little underrated. His sig ability is nice. But I’m not sure he’s the first cosmic I would awaken if I had a choice.

    Apart from Doom, I’m not sure I would spend an AG on any of those champs (AA is the lone possible exception, but I don’t recall him being super useful working toward Cavalier, although I think he was helpful in the Micro-Realm Variant).

    I’m not a Doom owner, but I believe his awakened ability isn’t necessary, but helps his prestige significantly.

    Medusa feels like a champ that is on the backside of her usefulness. She can be beastly with robots, but Corvus would pretty much wreck Techs quicker. I also don’t recall using her much in Variant content. I think I only used her for the Sentinel boss in 6.1.

    I wouldn’t use an AG on Guilly, Havok, Prox or Shulk. Which variant are you aiming for first? That’s probably an important question.

    Thanks for the replies guys! I think I'll go for a cosmic for Corvus then.
    Doom is my rank up priority number 1 😁 but I don't think I'll use a gem on him.
    You all kind of confirmed what I thought, I don't have one of those champs that really need their awakened ability to be good. But Corvus will save me revives if I awaken him so that's not too bad 😊
    I don't know which variant is the best to go for first, I'll have to do some research... But first I'll try to get cavalier done.

    Although Doom is really good he doesn’t need to be awakened. Corvus awakened ability makes a massive difference to him, It is underrated. Go for the cosmic and awaken Corvus. You won’t notice it straight away but over time you will be glad you awakened him

    Sorry to sorta take this over, but you said that aa wasn't that good for cav? I was thinking about going for an ag for aa over colossus. Would awakening colossus or even caiw be better for cav?

    @DrZola A bit off topic, but must you always sign off your comments with your name title, don't take offense, I'm just really curious? Reminds me of that Supreme leader x guy that always use to do the same thing.
  • DrZolaDrZola Posts: 8,398 ★★★★★
    Don’t mean to be presumptuous, but I’d also suggest the following:

    If Micro-Realms Variant is your goal, take a hard look at your XL champs and target the likes it Venom, Sentinel, Rhulk.

    If Polar Opposites Variant is your goal, consider your full slate of tech champs—techs aren’t necessary, but they can make a big difference here (especially Sentinel).

    If the Waning Moon Variant is your goal, you’ve probably got enough 1/2/3*’s to manage a run at Ch2/3, but Ch1 can be tricky without decent counters. There are guides that help with that, but I think you can brute force through Ch1 if you have to.

    I wouldn’t waste time in Ultron’s Assault Variant.

    Good luck!

    No offense taken. Difference is I’ve done it ever since I started on the old forums back in mid-2015. I’m not sure who the Supreme Leader is.

    I always try to put thought and effort into my posts and check them for accuracy, grammar, etc. I tend to pick my threads carefully (although I sometimes just post for fun) and make sure what I say is additive.

    Signing them felt like a way to show ownership and intentionality that people often neglect to show in an online forum. I think comments should be careful and considered, almost like correspondence. And correspondence usually gets signed.

    I’d have to check back at the paths. I think AA was good on some fights, but I don’t recall him being a key part of my go-to team at the time.

    AA’s awakening does make a significant difference—please don’t misunderstand me. If it bleeds and poisons, he can demolish it. But so many nodes seem to punish debuffs (Cornered, for example) and there are ample champs that don’t bleed or poison in game. For nodes that deal poison or bleed, he doesn’t work.

    I still think he’s an excellent quester for things like boss rushes, quick DoT fights, EQ. But I just don’t remember him being an answer for a lot of 6.1 and 6.2. I looked back at the Reddit Megathread and I only see him mentioned a few times as a useful champ. I think I even asked CLCubing about him specifically somewhere.

    But my memory may fail me.

    Dr. Zola

    P. S. As for Colossus, I’m a noob. I just awakened mine (had him for years—still at R2). He wasn’t a viable option for much before his changes. You’d need to ask someone else.

    Archangel helped me get cavalier. The bosses maybe not, but he really helped for path clearing, very quick and easy while you save your boss killer. Although mine was unawakened at the time he still shreds through. Don't know much about Colossus' awakened ability so I can't really comment on that.

    Alright thanks both of you! I think I'll hold on and search for some more advice
  • DrZolaDrZola Posts: 8,398 ★★★★★
    @Thicco_Mode and @Unknown_Traveler

    I would check out the MCoC reddit thread (for this and for most other advice—it’s much better and easier to access than the forums).

    I’m a big fan of awakened Corvus. So many situations where it is a life saver. Degen/DOT won’t kill you if you have charges active and if you mess up it’s a bit of a safety net. I got a 5* recently, and after using my awakened 4* so much, it just wasn’t the same.

    You don't have Omega Red 5*?
    That was with him I defeated one harder of bosses of 6.1. (Crossbones of 6.1.5 I believe)

    My R3 duped Medusa for Sentinel of 6.1.6 was awesome too, almost one shot him, finished him than with Cap marvel movie.

    No units and revives needed in 6.1 if using the right champions. The next chapters idk because I don't plan for now play them, no need to rush :D
