6.3.1 medusa counters (need help)

edited November 21 in Strategy and Tips


Who I've tried:

- Magneto (prowess constantly triggers buffet)
- Longshot (fully boosted, I was only doing 7% health per sp1, and I found it near impossible to outdamage buffet)
- Ronin (aggressive playstyle to keep up bleed damage cannot be maintained with dusa's autoblock and explosive personality)

Now it may just be that I suck at the game, have all the counters I need and it's just a matter of skill; or that I dont have a single option and need to wait it out. Any advice would be appreciated.

    i dont have any advice on who to use but your 6* roster is banging
    maybe try something with the despair mastery?

    Longshot can do it at Rank 2.
  • Moot4LifeMoot4Life Posts: 1,508 ★★★★
    if you have despair maybe try spamming L1 with CAP IW???

    I don’t know if I’ve seen it done, but cap iw sp1? Ideally you would want him awakened with despair to counter buffet. Maybe could try turning off dex for that fight?

    If you have despair maxed, reach a special 3 with Magneto with as many prowess as you can or take BWCV and spam heavies to stack bleeds.
    If you still can’t do it, your best shot is to deactivate dexterity mastery, to avoid buffet regen, and use BWCV, or an other champ without buffs to take Medusa out.

    Did you try BWCV? I‘m assuming her bleed is too small? And you can’t even chip away at her with Ronin and revives? Other than that, you might be stuck and have to rank up Blade or wait for Sym Supreme, Warlock or whoever else. Sorry.

    You have a counter, do the rankup. Rankups should be prioritized with immediate use.

    No iso though
  • AleorAleor Posts: 2,211 ★★★★
    Cap iw parry-heavy spam sp1 maybe?
    Or open dual 5* crystals for symb supreme
  • RaviDaviRaviDavi Posts: 341 ★★
    Maybe Masacre SP1?

    I literally just finally beat her for the first time. SS is the only viable option. Sorry. I just pulled him last week finally and gave her a shot. Spent plenty of units on this match.

    Magneto and BWCV are not viable

    "Only viable option"? Are you kidding?
  • LandsLands Posts: 25
    I’m sure there are but for a moderately skill player her regen is to much to counter.

    Have you used the generic AG yet? Alternate solution: Put it into Ægon along with tons of sigs, ramp him up high and throw Sp2's. Ginormous bleed dmg.

    Nope, just hit into her block.

    Wait...

    Yeah I just got past her, and if you have awakened Aegon ramped up and hit into her block, she takes block damage and the fight is not even that hard, just strange. I took off 75% of her health on my first try with my 5/65.
    Aegon is also a champion that you will never regret "wasting rank up materials" on. He has so many uses

    Yeah I saw that, gonna have to start grinding a serious amount of iso out though

    I was gonna make a separate thread but I think that’d be wasteful so I’ll just ask here: how good of an option is Warlock for that fight? I’ve had one for a while but didn’t think he’d be able to do it so I put it off

    He's good I've seen couple of solos on YouTube you could check it out. Parry+Heavy he's viruses will take care of buffet. Easy game easy life

    @BlackTuran Depending on rank and to a degree masteries (deep wounds) warlock is an easy solo. Parry heavy, sp3 to top up chip damage or sp2 to armourbreak. Just be really carefully with the sp2 only throw it if she has less than two furies or you risk getting autoblocked and wrecked by the node.
