R3 Magneto or Apocalypse?

DannyB01DannyB01 Posts: 370 ★★★
Had some Christmas luck and pulled Apoc from the 6* feature yesterday, and I’m only 1% from forming a T5c to R3 a mutant. I’m torn between Magneto and Apocalypse.

I’ve explored all content and run suicides. Magneto I feel might get used more and is more suicide friendly, but Apoc could end up on my team more and is so much more fun to play. I like that Apoc has the defensive tag for AW also. Both are unawakened and if I get it, I’d use a gem on Magneto but probably not Apoc.

Who would you guys choose? My roster isn’t really lacking anything so it’s based on preference and long-term investment. Would appreciate any input!

    I think there both great. Do I have either as a ranked 5*?
  • DannyB01DannyB01 Posts: 370 ★★★
    My Mags is R2 already whereas Apoc is unranked. I haven’t got either at a high level as 5*. Saving the 3 T5bs by doing Mags is definitely a consideration.

    I guess Mags benefits from a larger health pool to counter chip damage, but I feel the higher attack value is more benefit to Apoc as Mags is already so OP wherever I use him.

    This has been very helpful, the vote is conclusive. Forum helped me choose BWCV over Dragon Man, now I’ll choose Magneto over Apoc. Thanks everyone.

    I have Magneto as 6*R3 and Apocalypse as 6*R2. Personally I've found Magneto at rank 3 is probably an overkill, because what he can do at R3, he could do at R2.

    Eg. At rank 2, #metal would die once you get to SP3. Now at rank 3, there's no difference, get to SP3 & they are dead.

    Apocalypse isn't R3, so i can't comment on the difference.

    I had the same dilemma. Ended up picking Apocalypse. At the end of the day the other one was next but Apocalypse's won out because he's new and I enjoy his animation more.

    Oh man! Just when I thought my mind was made up, you guys have made points I can’t really disagree with! Haha

    1. Mags is strong enough at R2 already
    2. Apoc is more fun to play

    I’ll check how the vote goes while I sleep. Looks like I’ll be happy either way but now I’m leaning back towards Apoc!

    Thanks again for your input everyone :)

    If you like playing apo more, definitely him. Personally I find magneto a little boring, many heavies - sp3 - repeat... It's the sp3 part that I dislike most, watching it again and again and again takes away all the joy

    here. Magneto is boring to play and part of the fun is the strategy and horeseman synergy with Apoc. Choose him. More unique too

    You dont need mag at R3. R2 mag will do just fine against metal. Where as apocalypse r3 would scale him even more

    I’m in the same spot right now. I need a couple t2a and I can r3 either one. Leaning towards apoc. I finished all content and r2 mags cleared everything and apoc will be good on offense and defense

    Apoc benifits a lot more from r3 than mags. Mags can already oneshot all metal types at r2 in act 7, and war has even smaller healthpools. r3 Apoc works for more matchups, and can make people like archangel friggin insane. r3 mags could be a good longterm option for later act 7 content with greater healthpools. Its always your choice but it comes down to who you like and who you use more.
    Whatchu mean people like archangel?, that boi is already insane....

    Cooler, more fun better prestige, better unique uses

    Thank you all very much. I agree with all your comments about Apoc and it's how I was leaning originally. It's great to see you guys feel this way, I'm actually a bit relieved that I can take him up instead, which probably says it's the right decision too!

    Votes say otherwise but all the logic presented says Apoc and I like that.

    All these people saying Mags doesn’t need R3 are wrong. Think about the future. In the end, you will want a 6* 5/65 Mags. You probably won’t want or need a 6* 5/65 Apoc.

    Mags can clear significantly more content than Apoc, there will be tough future content such as Abyss 2, etc. with crazy health pools.

    Mags is the best investment for the future.
  • DannyB01DannyB01 Posts: 370 ★★★
    I do agree with that for future content, Magneto will be going to R3 eventually for sure. But I’m siding with the idea Magneto is so OP in his match-ups that he can be ranked after Apoc, and I’m expecting I’ll want Apoc in my team for all sorts of reasons too.

    But I really do hate using Magneto lol (as great as he is)

    You’re looking for confirmation to rank up Apoc. Just do it, you can’t go wrong with either. It sounds like Apoc will give you more pleasure.
