What even is 6.2.5!?!??!? (Only quest I still think needs to be adjusted)

NewlinstheoryNewlinstheory Posts: 833 ★★★★



So I never truly realized how poorly designed 6.2 was until I started exploring act 6.1-6.4 and honestly everything I did pre-nerf/ changes wasnt bad imo....at completing it.
Pre nerf I explored 6.4 completely, and 6.3.6, after the nerf thats when I explored everything else.

Now I think a lot of reasons I hate 6.1/6.2 vs 6.3/.6.4 is ofc the amount of paths needed to explore.
IT TAKES SOOOO MUCH TIME, 6.3/6.4, you’re looking at what 6 paths to explore? And thats it....
But 6.1/6.2 have 8-10 paths or so(or more Some times), but 6.1 is an easy exploration so i give it a pass, but 6.2 is where the biggest mess is.

6.2 has a lot of issues and it only really comes from 6.2.5 still, and also the gated paths.
Its never really made sense as they said “hey you know what lets make’em have 4 skill champs on a team”

I said this in another thread, but they acknowledged that this was a bad idea.....so why not take them out?
Keeping them there just seems so pointless and would discourage someone from exploring(again imo)

Boss

Mordo hands down is the most annoying boss for me, but the thing that gets me, is thatnhe has liked nodes on him..... why oh WHY DOES HE HAVE LINKED NODES!?,?

Throughout the whole chapter, no one had linked nodes attached to them. Why decide to give to the second to last boss quest, again its just a huge annoyance for players, and not too mention the already annoying node, do not go gentle and strength in numbers. I had one champ ko’s and doom wouldn’t trigger his nullify ONCE, its 12.50% reduction chance for one ko’d champ, and yet felt like it was a whole team.

Im still gonna go through exploring this quest regardless, but the point is Overall this quest feels like a quest that should’ve been in 6.4, and that it’s silly to know they didn’t try better to improve it, cuz Im sure its the only quest most players were not looking forward to explore. The annoyance and time it takes already to explore act 6 is long, and 6.2.5 just makes me feel like the rewards wont even have been worth it when I 100% it.....
When you have 2nd to last boss thats harder/more annoying than the actual final boss of the chapter, there is something VERY WRONG. Im demanding they change the whole chapter, but go back in and at least remove the linked nodes from mordo, or remove strength in numbers, thats all it takes.





Yup......thats it.......Hope everyone has a great thanksgiving if you’re celebrating and if not, hope you have a great weekend!

    Act 6 is literally the worst for exploration even 6.1 is quite nice but the actual problem starts from 6.2 ...

    So I may be wrong, but from what I remember in the nerf post, they only reduced the attack reduction, but not the AAR.
  • NewlinstheoryNewlinstheory Posts: 833 ★★★★
    They did both, for every champ ko’d -12.50%
    Just went in ti check again haha @Notsavage19

    @Newlinstheory "Chapter 2 Quest 5 Mordo Boss: Added a reduced potency version of Strength in Numbers. New reduction is 12.5% per KO’d Champion, meaning a Maximum of 50% reduction. (Other instances of Strength in Numbers are unchanged at this time.)" So the AAR isn't reduced. It's still 25% I think.

    Act 6.2.5 is pretty much to have Ghost, Quake and Void, then at least one reasonable champ for each of the class gates.

    It's either that or wallet man.

    The major thing annoying in 6.1 is the caustic temper path in 6.1.6, the buffed up path in 6.1.6 again, the spite path in 6.1.2, and the amount of energy refills it takes.

    Just quake the spite paths ( Im mr helpful )
    Not as straightforward as you think.
    I used Void and my rank 4 shehulk for it anyways. Had to Quake the biohazard sentinel miniboss, then use void again for the boss.

    Spent no items, but pairing spite with combo party in the first place is kinda callous, NGL.

    My advice: I'm not even close to act 6, but if you want to counter spite, use Red Guardian. He can't gain buffs, and the opponent can't get jealous of him xd.
    I reckon he'd be great since there's mystics on the path. But special delivery is also a thing.

    I remember giving them pretty detailed feedback on why 6.2.5 sucks so much and what they need to do to change it, but like Rocky said, they just ignored us. Honestly, I don’t even have any advice for you because the main way to get through it is revives and units. Obviously, it can be done itemless (just watch BGs videos) but it’s very hard to do itemless.

    It's possible sure. But requires perfect play. Honestly the attack reduction isn't a big deal if you have the right champs but AAR reduction is downright vile
