Alternatives to Aegon for Abyss

Mr_PlatypusMr_Platypus Posts: 2,400 ★★★★★
So, I’m 40+ mutant/skill crystals deep in the hunt for Aegon, slowly coming to terms that, like Brian Grant, I’m probably not gonna pull him anytime soon.
So I want to start looking at alternative options for Aegon to try and get an abyss clear.
Off the top of my head, I think people have used:
Stealth Spidey
Stark Spidey
CapIW
Sabretooth (W/ Sasquatch)
Colossus (W/Omega Red)
Cable (W/Apoc)
She Hulk.

I think I saw somewhere that falcon can work? Makes sense with how his damage ramp up works.

Just wondering about people’s experience with using any of the above or other options I’ve missed as path clearers so I can do some research whilst I rebuild my unit stash. I have all of the champs listed above, as well as the other horsemen, Corvus etc.

In case anyone says “do other content first”, I’ll be finishing 7.1 100% this week, then all I’ve got left is LoL 100%, abyss, 6.2, 6.3 and 6.4 exploration, and tbh I feel it will likely be more worthwhile doing an abyss run before returning to act 6 for exploration.

    I think you missed the “Stryfe is the new mutant Aegon” thread.

    Other than that, She Hulk will help you a ton.

    Corvus

    I had to be strategic with Corvus.

    When I went on the Masacre path - I would let Corvus kill a couple of champs after I got them down with Torch or Fury or someone. He loses his Glaive charges after 20 and is very noodley for long abyss fights.

    Then vs Masacre where you hit into his block, he shines because the Glaive charges don’t go away.

    Other than that - Corvus is a hard sell for me for Abyss.

    If he was coming into the featured 5* crystal next week, I’d have included him, but I think he just misses out, and I’m no whale so no chance I’ll get him from cavs lol.

    I just finished the easy path 2 days ago.
    My team was:
    5r5 Colossus sig 105
    5r5 Longshot
    5r5 Void sig 200
    3r1 Prof X for synergy (it was a bad idea to bring him, but I dont have Apo..)
    6r1 Gwenpool (for IW)

    Colossus did really well, there were fights I did only in 2 revives. His damage is really good. But for the Collector, he is not good.. I spent 3,5k units only on him, I think. The fights on the path are "easy", the cosmic fights were fun with Longshot, except Hyperion and The Champion. The IW fight went horrible without Nick or HT, probably took most of the revives after the Collector.
    Colossus is great, but not against tech champs. You will take a lot of block dmg. Otherwise his dmg is still good, you will just die sooner.
    I spent overall about 6,5k units I think, which is not so bad, but could have been much less with Corvus or Aegon.

    Also not sure about the OR synergy, because will rarely use the sp2. Dont take Prof X, not worth it.

    He gets 3 charges in the first fight in 4 out of 5 paths. On the easy path, he gets 4 charges by the time you are done with IMIW.

    With 3 charges, he was doing fine. I did Red Skull using Corvus and he was quicker than Doom for that fight.

    Thanks for the response, good to know colossus doesn’t necessarily require the OR synergy. Wouldn’t have as many issues with collector atleast as atm my team plan would be:
    - Corvus 6r2, sig20
    - Torch or void, both 6r2, void sig20
    - Fury 5r5 awakened
    - A mystic - I’ve got most of the main ones so would be a case of picking the one that I think I’d do best with.
    - Path clearer.
