5.3 Story

GroundedWisdomGroundedWisdom Posts: 23,307 ★★★★★
I'm finally in a mood to tackle more Story. I just did 5.3.1, and I'm just sound boarding for anything I need to watch out for. Is it straightforward with just one Class per Quest? Any particularly challenging Boss Fights to watch for? Ideally I'd like to do a run through of Completion before the next EQ. Thanks.

    5.3 is pretty straightforward. Howard and Rogue are very straightforward. There might be an Ultron Classic in Quest 3. You'll need solid counters for Hype and Green Goblin. GG is easier than he looks though. BPCW is simple if you know how to fight him.

    Having the class without the reduction always helps, but it's fine to use other classes. The fights just take longer.

    Not sure of the easiest paths off the top of my head, but usually it is the longer unnoded path. Ramp up champs help a lot.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks. I just got through 5.3.2. Not bad. I have a surplus of 20% and 30% Boosts, so that off-sets the reduction. If it continues, I should have little issue.

    I'm the slowest person when it comes to Story. I like to take my time, and I have to be in the mood for it. Lol.

    Yeah, I know I'm definitely behind. I was a couple years late doing Uncollected because I spent most of my time in the Arena and doing EQ. That said, I'm a bit more motivated now.

    It’s pretty straightforward, although the class attack reductions are annoying. Just make sure to take short hard paths, as they are actually a lot easier.(Generally the one where you have the class disadvantage using the suggested class.)

    Good luck!

    Thanks! Just finishing up 5.3.3 now. So far, so good.

    Personally, I pretty much disregarded the class nodes because cmm is just a powerhouse, but that strategy definitely depends on your roster, but I'm assuming you have someone similar. As @Masterpuff said, the shorter paths are almost always easier, depsite the node. Less fights=less changes to screw up. I don't quite remember the nodes, so im sorry that I can't help you there, but I don't recall anyone being a major problem

    What’s an optimal roster for 5.3.4 For exploration because I don’t have a god 5 star cosmic and don’t know who to rank up for a four star?

    It's pretty straight forward to go for completion. You may have to switch your masteries once or twice when going for exploration, but as long as you have a counter for each boss and know how to fight against them (mordo, BPCW looking at you two) then they aren't too bad. The fights can get long if you use champs from other classes but I really just found it more tedious than hard.

    ya same here. this honestly is probably the hardest chapter imo if u don't have the right champs/class.

    Looks like I was more prepared than I thought I was. Lol. Any suggestions on 5.4, other than "F Ultron"? ;)

    Blade with GR works like charm for ultron. Actually whole 5.4 is made for blade with GR. For ultron Medusa is one of the best and solid option . Nebula (I forgot synergy) good counter.

    No Blade, aside from my 4* R4. I'll have to use someone else.

    I'm up to 5.4.3. That's enough for one night. I'll see if I have the patience to finish off tomorrow. Thanks for the help, guys.

    5.4 completion isn't too bad. It's best to pull up maps as you do it though. You can generally pick the path that suits your roster, whether it be the healing path, bleed and poison path or another path. A general tip would be to use some energy to portal over to a path to check the local nodes.

    Quest 1 is easy. There's a nice Life Transfer path and P2099 just has more power gain than usual.

    Quest 2 is straightforward as well. You'll definitely need a bleed immune for Morningstar though.

    Quest 3 is annoying. If you go to the left, you'll find a debuff immune rhulk with bane. I think Joe Fixit and Thor are also stun immune. Hela has unstoppable whenever she gets a fury, so a champion w/ a slow debuff is the way to go (Can't use nullify because the unstoppable is passive).

    Quest 4 is pretty easy. The Breakthrough path is the easiest path imo. Just make sure that you bring a poison immune for abom, a tech for colossus, and a coldsnap immune for iceman. There's also a Hulkbuster on the path though. MODOK is annoying. You'll want someone who can bypass autoblock. Make sure you have his sp1 dex on point so you don't get cliped.

    Quest 5 is also simple. You'll want an evade counter for miles, and I'd definitely recommend the rage path because it's just an enhanced fury path. Ensure to bring a poison immune for abom again. Mephisto is a 'bring an incinerate immmune or die' type of fight. As long as he's throwing specials, he is straight forward. His sp3 doesn't hit too hard if he gets to it.

    Quest 6 is interesting. Make sure you go right at the beginning unless you have an electro counter. Yellowjacket is on the right. I would recommend the vigor or biohazard paths because they are both simple, but it depends on your roster.

    Ultron is... interesting. If you are unfamiliar with the fight, he has the impart node which periodically gives him deactivated buffs. If you inflict a debuff (parry is the main issue here) he triggers that deactivated buff. DO NOT parry when he has power gain. He'll gain about 3 bars of power and throw an sp3 unless you get lucky and he throws an sp2. The other buffs are fury, armor up and regen.

    Robot counters work really well. Loki has worked for people also. Watch out for his evade though. It's every 7 seconds, so usually after or during the 2nd combo. A technique I've found is to dodge his sp1 then dash in then out to trigger his evade and still make it out alive.

    Good luck! Hope I helped!

    BAM

    That Ultron was a pain, and M.O.D.O.K. was, just because I never brought Karnak to make it easier.
