Rank up?!?! 5 star r4 or 4 star r5?

I have an Elektra r3 unduped 5 star. I also have a r4 four star gwenpool. Is elektra worth the r4 unduped? Or should I spend my skill t4 cats on gwenpool. I have dw maxed and assassins will be soon. I'm leaning towards Elektra as that is the direction the game is going however would love to hear others thoughts and what they would do. Thank you for you time and thoughts.

    It all depends on what you are looking to do, I suppose. They're both good Attackers. If you're going for higher content, Elektra would be good, but I think GP is a good all-round Attacker.

    I'm going for more higher content trying to 100 percent act 5.2 and finish rttl. Then work on lol. I have a 4 star maxed star lord to help with lol but ik I need more help then just him.

    Definitely Elektra.

    Never ever!! rank an unduped 5* to rank 4

    That's not a very sound rule because many Champs are useful Unduped. Some would be waiting months.

    Yep your right, I r4 my Mordo and he wasn't duped. Still majorly useful though and is now duped btw

    Prestige is still the be all end all in this game so ranking sleeping heroes will come back to bite most players. It's a move that can't be undone and is reliant on the most unreliable aspect of the game crystal luck.

    Elektra doesn't need to be duped to be ranked at a high level, especially if you have Assassin.
  • GoogleplexianGoogleplexian Posts: 275 ★★
    It not about whether she is good or not it's losing the 4 t2a on a low prestige champion with no certainty on when she can grow.

    I have 3 points in assassins will be saving for the final 2 soon

    I would take gwenpool and not even think about it, the prestige with 4/55 elektra will be a disaster unless you dupe her. You only get 3 4/55 at the moment so i wouldn't rank up ANYONE upduped (possible except to ultron and iceman)
  • GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 17,703 ★★★★★
    The OP is focusing on Utility, not Prestige. At least from what I'm gathering.
  • Is she at least worth r3 unduped?

    It doesn't matter, you still have to factor that in. If he's thinking about a 4/55 he's not a newbie. Also, gwenpool is considerably better than elektra so the gap between them isn't THAT big (obviously 4/55 is better then 5/50).
  • Ascoop24Ascoop24 Posts: 111
    I love her at r3. Her bleed is nice. The defensive ability reduction is awesome and she packs a mean punch. But trying to do harder content in the game it seems that the use of skill t4cc would be best spent on 5 stars rather then 4 stars. My main thought was that a 5/50 won't help me as much as a 4/55 would.

    T2 alphas are gonna be more available though, F prestige that ruins the game. Just rank who you like

    If the OP doesn't care for prestige or has pretige covered then Elektra is a great choice.

    One day Kabam might abolish Prestige and come up with something new.

    I rank who I want and am not stressed about prestige. I'm thinking of taking my Wolverine to rank 5 over the other mutants I have cause I use him the most and he's the most helpful for me.

    Ya that's all correct, you'd be helping yourself short term at the cost of future prestige basically (thus lower future AQ rewards). I personally wouldn't rank up an unduped 5 star to rank 4 for that reason, even as T2A are theoretically more available, getting 4 is a ton.

    They're both strong Attackers. For the content you've described, Elektra is the better option. Both for RTTL and 5.2. I have GP at R5 and she's amazing, but it's more useful to have an R4 5* in this case. Prestige is only a factor depending on the requirements your Ally has, as it is used to chase AQ Rewards. If it's Utility you need, Elektra would be the way to go for your goals.

    Wolverine is an absolute machine, he can basically do anything. Unless it's a bleed/poison path with healblock on, but I love my wolvie

    I never thought i'd care about prestige either and have never ranked up anyone for it, but it does make a difference. Ranking who you like is always a good way to go though.

    If I had a duped 5/50 gp or an unduped 4/55 Elektra to choose from on my roster I'd use Gwen first 99.9% of the time.
  • Jon8299Jon8299 Posts: 1,067
    Is she at least worth r3 unduped?

    Yes
  • SungjSungj Posts: 1,639
    Never ever!! rank an unduped 5* to rank 4

    5* mordo, gwenpool, iceman, ghostrider, crossbones, nightcrawler, rogue, hyperion, hood, agent venom, x-23,quake, angela, stark spidey, yondu, ultron and more are all worth and have been brought to rank 4 unduped. Even top tier players have unduped 5 stars at rank 4 like gwenpool and iceman
  • Monk1Monk1 Posts: 147
    I would never waste t2a on unduped champs- stark spider is prob the only exception.

    At the level of OP u should be able to do road with 4* champs pretty easy. Rank GP as useful at that level

    That really depends on the champ. With dw and assassin r5 gp is a freaking beast and will bleed a beatch out asap, not to mention her stun ability and crazy specials. Electra has nothing on gp. I would take gp to 5/50 over elektra 4/55 anyday.

    you forgot 5* drax, who is a beast and mordo killer and has a 6 hit combo, and doesnt need to be duped.
