    I ranked my 5* over my 6* even though it was duped as well. 5* was max sig though and I wanted that safeguard utility. Also had no plans on taking him to R3 any time soon so I can rank the 6* at a later point once the 5*s damage is no longer viable.

    Unless you’re close to forming a mutant t5 or are planning to do abyss or explore act 6 soon go for the 5*

    Considering that I just absolutely face rolled basically an entire path in the book 2 beta with the 5*, I don't see that happening any time soon


  • For those of you who mentioned T5CC, I’m pretty close! Two more 10% and I’ll be there (if I would have bought the two selectors the other day I would have it)

    And all I have left in game content wise finish exploring act 6.2-6.4 and the last four paths of Abyss

    he is r3 worthy


  • No...after his buff I think he’s my best option (I have five stars of Emma and havok ranked up already)

    Do you find yourself utilizing the sig often? My Mags is 5/65 unduped but I have 3 mutant AGs, just haven't found it necessary. I used him a good bit exploring Cav EQ in buffed up and the mutant boost quest and just haven't felt the sig would make much impact for me.

    Also am I the only one who wouldn't R3 him as a 6*? My 5/65 just slaughters everything with a single sp3, t5cc seems better used elsewhere to me.

    Makes a huge difference on stun immune matchups. Been using my mags to fight stubborn doom bosses and max sig helps me charge heavy wherever.

    Definitely rank up your 5* awakened one, hands down no doubt. Like peeps above have said, it's a game changer.
    Imagine ice man armor buff but on every hit, it's super important even in stunnable matchups, because it gives you a great safety mech.

    Also why are you sleeping on your 6* havok dude.
    Rank 3 that beast, have him at r3 myself.
  • He is a natural sig 80 already

    Adding to above, a 5/65s damage output is slightly better than a r2 because of the increased combat power rate, as it's based on champ rank and not rarity, so you get to sp3 a lot quicker.
    His damage is insane enough at r5, you wouldn't notice a diff with a r2 anyway.
    Unless you take him in war, especially in higher tiers, a 6* one with adrenaline and slightly higher stats will be of help.

    Here is my suggestion:

    If you have 4 to 5 5 star Rank Up Gem, then go for the 5 Star Rank 5, no doubt;
    If you don't have 4 to 5 Rank Up Gem, then keep both of them in current state, until you get 1 to 2 6 star rank up gem or 4 to 5 5 star rank up gem~

    If you really like him and can't wait to rank him up, rank up 5 star to rank 5, because he is awakened.

    Same here, Havok is more than a beast!

    Oh I have a 6* 1-2 gem, but that’s being saved for a Rainey day (whenever I can dupe my six star Nick fury)

    I’m honestly surprised to see so many people siding with the five star. I guess I need to relook at his awakened ability. I have 24 rank 5 five stars (four of each class actually) then only 3 R2 six stars (duped VTD, SymSup, Guilly99) so I was leaning towards Six star version since he’d be my first rank 2 mutant and fourth overall, trying to develop that six star roster, it’s just hard when all I pull is a lot of trash! Definitely will have to rethink this one, thank you all for your input

    I'd go with the 5*. He's awakened, so you have way more utility, and the stat increase from a 6* R2/5/65 to R3 6 star is far to minimal to make up for the loss of his awakened ability. Id take up Havok if you absolutely need one of your mutants at R3. He doesn't hardly even need to be awakened.

    I've very rarely used him since I ranked him so no. But I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Plus some extra damage on heavies is always nice.

    Main place I would want it is war honestly. If it saves a death in war, it's worth having.

    I understand the appeal of working on 6*s but anyone that tells you that we're past 5*s is lying or fooling themselves.

    I have 10 R3s and 11 R2s for 6*s and 31 R5s for 5*s. I'm not about to pass on a more useful 5* just to rank a champ with a blue border. That's just silly

    While the r3 is a real gamechanger, I believe the sig ability is way too useful to ignore. If you can max sig mags, i would still prefer the 5*.
  • The votes on this have been a roller coaster...now more are voting for six star than the five star...I just don’t know now...could wait until I actually get the T5CC mutant catalyst for rank 3

    If you want to take him to R3 unduped, then do it. Not sure that would be my move but that's not a situation I've been in. It's not a bad rankup no matter which way you go honestly. It's not like you won't get a ton of value either way.
  • 3 days since I posted...another new level up will be on in a few hours I’m sure...and with almost 70 votes...

    It’s almost dead even at 50-49 lol

    At this point I’ve overthought this too much already, may just flip a coin (find out where my heart really lies with this)

    Thank you everyone for your insight!

    Id do the 5* first honestly. T5cc is very unpredictable unless you spend money it can take a loong time to get 6* to r3. And the dupes at high sig is just so damn good
