**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

Sorc Supreme

So I pulled her from a featured a bit ago and never gave her much thought as a rank up only because I had multiple other priorities, but after maxing out those other priorities I came back to Sorc Supreme and have been trying to figure out what to do. Ive seen battles on here about if she's better than Claire ect ect. So just trying to get some input on what to do with her and more importantly how on earth to play her. Been reading up on her a bit to understand her kit a bit more but would very, very gladly accept any and all help with a proper rotation. Like is it best to sp3 first to get the permanent rune then drop sp2? I know it will vary fight to fight which is fine but just trying to figure it all out. Oh and I do have a gem for her and some stones so im not sure if she needs her Sig ability or levels ect. Thanks in advance!

    Without suicides she out damages claire by a long shot. Being able to heal /block and not worry about dexing specials that are hard to evade is what really sells her to me as a top 3 mystic

    No suicides for me. And no Claire for me either. So im leaning towards SS, but the problem is i have to figure out how to play her as well. All I really know is she has a buttload of utility and stupid block regen, thats about it.

    Well she is pretty straightforward.
    I just think people are pretty overwhelmed by her blessing and ruins and how the number constantly change every special attack

    You have to master getting the right mode on her at the right time, since they rotate automatically rather than you controlling them like with Claire. I have sorceress but I'm only learning to use her now at duped r3. I do have fully maxed out r5 Claire and prefer the fact that you control which mode she's in.

    Best advice is to use her as much as you can to see what she can do. I used her for few days when I got her, and in few days I truly understand how I should play with her. But its really fight dependent what you need to do.
    I have her on r5, she is beast, no regrets! I did the Champion fight with her + last 10% with Spidergwen. She is very useful for Act6, especially against champs who has hard to evade sps and you would take a lot of block damage. Its so fun to see your hp going back!

    She is very sustainable with 75% regen on block damage with a regen charge (I’m not sure of the math on multiple charges, whether with 2 is 150% regen or 87.5%)

    Armor breaks are very nice, slows can be applied to everyone but science which is handy for the skill evader (since most slow champs are science), she has a pretty alright nullify, not as good as SymSup but hers is more reliable.

    In power control mode you can zap a bit of their power away on every hit (handy for preventing taking an L3 to the face)

    L3 damage is very solid if you aren’t in attack mode when you have your L2 (the second hit as a r4 SS crits for like 28k, so not bad at all)

    She is one of the best 6.2.6 champion counters out there

    I could get more detailed, but I would say she is worth r4 and r5 if you fall in love with her playstyle.

    I'll have to mess with her a bit more then, I see a lot of chatter about her out there so I've been trying to look into it a bit more. Its always hard to look at any mystic after getting doom. It just spoiled me with how good he is.

    And does anyone know if she needs her signature ability? It looks more to me like a stealth spidey sig ability where it isnt needed, though it definitely pumps up her damage/utility with the blessing potency?

    Heavy attacks advance the mode. So if you want a mode (say to use a special in) and you aren't in it, you can use heavy attacks until you get the mode you want. I often do this when I get to SP3, I think about which mode I want the permanent lock on, then heavy to get to it and fire it off.

    She doesn’t need it at all. The ability accuracy is for stuff like BW and Domino (useless everywhere else because you have a 100% chance to trigger all abilities)

    The potency is nice, but it’s only to 33% so not that crazy. It would make you hit harder with armor breaks and regen a little more, but it’s not necessary to her kit.

    Edit: now that I am thinking about it, the ability accuracy could be helpful for mystic ward nodes. Idk how the math would work with it though. It could either be 6.7% chance at max sig to nullify or 38.4%. I would assume the former.

    Well I went to the extreme and r5ed with a sig 200. Thanks for the input guys! Any other tips and such will be appreciated as I toy with her.

    I've been supremely happy with my R5. /pun
    Utility galore, in Variant 5, I got solos on Killmonger and Stun Immune Nightcrawler.
