A different way do defeat Electro Luke (solo with Vision Aarkus)

I still think Aarkus is underrated on attack. He is so versatile and capable of doing great damage in few hits.

I've been using Aarkus a lot, even on weird scenarios.

His power gain paired with the Coldsnap allows him to counter Biohazard, Thorns, Freezer burn and a lot of annoying nodes using a different playstyle.

The SP3 allows him to do Coldsnap damage on the entire field. The SP2 doesn't make contact.

Repeating the cycle, SP2 + SP3 without touching the enemy you still do considerable damage

This strategy works fine on Map 7 so I tried this against Electro Luke and as you can see it works as well. When Luke is indestructible you can punch him just to keep the distance if needed.

TLDR: Aarkus's power gain + coldsnap allows him to defeat enemies with minimal contact

    How would he counter biohazard

    Don't hit the opponent. Build the power and let Coldsnap do it's work.
    Ohhh play lame win games. I get it. Wouldnt that be a lot of block damage though

    Not if you can dex. It's more or less quake style without assisted evade.
    Exactly!
    And you can use SP2 freely, that special doesn't make contact

    In Map 7 is extremely easy to use this playstyle

    I been really feeling my vision aarkus. When I saw his mediums hitting for 10k I was like is there a node up. His damage is there. The only thing I wish he has was something in his kit right now it’s:

    Armorbreak
    Armorshatter
    Power gain .

    Nothing on heavy attacks
    No utility or an immunity
    Tenacity on awakened is okay

    He has the damage , just missing something that I don’t know would make him feel whole .

    Yeah I agree. He needs at least one more ability.
    His heavy could apply a weakness or go unstoppable.

    And his mediums should be energy damage.

    Wow, I didn't even think of this...nice showcase!

    But yeah, that ability is truly underrated. He's like the Void of the cosmic class in terms of passive damage.

    Vision aarkus hand looks weird in sp3. I think all the oil in thr ground was absorbed by it and is not covered by it

    Great video.

    When I know I'm going to use this style with Arkus I bring Guardian for the block profeciency synergy. It comes close to eliminating chip damage.

    I think his heavies should allow you to stack an armor break so you can get to 10 faster , or they should allow your to sacrifice a power gain for a quick fury.

    Good idea about mediums, a weakness I don’t think is necessary because he can play pretty much power heavy . But the unstoppable would allow you to lay on the opponent .

    Was this an R3? Or boosted ?
