Abyss path 3

So I want to do Path 3 (havok path) in abyss soon and I just can't decide what team to bring.
I'm bringing ægon, torch and doom for sure but what to do with slot 4 and 5? Do I bring ronan and heimdall or should I pack a counter for luke cage and who should that champ replace?

    I did path 3 about a month ago. My team was Aegon, torch, stealth Spidey (for Luke cake), warlock (for havok), and sym supreme for the cosmics. That team worked out very good overall. Only trouble fight will be red skull, id just say power through with Aegon like I did. Maybe 10 revives to get through him

    You see I thought about bringing warlock but I've seen some videos that havok no longer detonates plasma so no need for a counter.

    You will need a counter for Havoc in the first place.
    I've personally used Hulkbuster, works with 1 revive per fight. He also works pretty well against Karnak, but you have Aegon already.
    You can then bring either a counter for Luke cage (she-hulk), or Heimdall for the synergy. Or if you want to cheese red skull, ronan.

    Interesting. Think that was a bug that got fixed, but not sure. Warlock worked good anyway lol

    So this is the team. Just need 3 t4b for the r2 on she hulk.

    Looks good! Good luck!

    Just fought havok and I can confirm you don't need a counter for him as he can't generate plasma on you

    For whatever reason the first encounter of Havok I was doing half damage and taking some purify damage, but on the second encounter at 999 it was smooth sailing with full damage on my crits and no purify damage taken. The threshold is supposed to be 500 combo. And definitely Doom over SS for the Bishop cheese.

    I finished path 3 about 3 days ago.. havok still doesn't denote.

    Personally I used
    R5 Aegon
    R5 HT
    R1 Hemidall (6*)
    R3 Doom
    R3 mags

    Got through with about 4/4.5k units. Hemidall saved me so many units, Doom almost 1 shot a few fights, probably could have if I'd boosted. Mags is awesome for a few fights like red skull and DH, think I used him for a couple others too.

    I used Aegon, Torch, Doom, Ronan and Heimdall. Ramp up Aegon on Darkhawk to deal with Luke Cage, Ronan cheeses RS, Aegon can handle Havok, not a lot of hard fights besides the first two

    I used mags, aegon, doom, HT and ronan. used mags only for darkhawk so you could replace him with someone else if needed. Ramped up Aegon on Luke cage and got him to 600 combo, with that he was able to handle the havoks comfortably. cost around 3.8k units

    Aegon can take down Havok if he’s ramped up to 500, I believe. I used aegon in all my abyss havok fights. You don’t need a specific country for him

    That bug was fixed a couple of months ago. He no longer works that way

    News to Me. I Don’t see anything about that in the changelog going back to last November. I fought havok Feb 26 or 27th of this year. When was that bug confirmed and announced as fixed?

    I just went against him with a 450 combo ægon and got absolutely no detonates

    No you don't aegon works just fine, OP I reccomend you bring nick and mags, or one of them with heimdall. Ronan is great for redskull, but Im not a fan of using a champ for only one fight.

    Already made the mistake of bringing warlock instead of ronan or heimdall and just took down redskull with ægon and it took some revives but it was pretty easy. Thanks for the suggestion tho

    Hm, guess it might still be bug there.
    This wasn't the case with me or a couple of other posts I've saw in the last months.

    What's the bug? According to Aegon's abilities, I don't see anything broken.

    Basically Havok wasn't placing plasma charges on champs causing plasma denotations. I did my run a few days ago and neither of them places plasma on aegon.

    As long as there's no plasma charges being places on you. You don't need to worry about bringing someone like Warlock or G99 as a counter. Issue is once they fix it you'll lose your buffer spot, so I'm trying to rush my last two paths just incase 😅

    I was just trying to pay it forward because I recently was here asking the same question. I don't think it's detonation that is the issue. It's purify damage. My personal experience was that Aegon was receiving purify damage on the first Havok (at slightly under 500 for first fight, but then crossed the 500 threshold mid fight). However, for some reason.. even after 500, he kept taking the purify damage for rest of fight. However, the second encounter at 999 went very smooth without issue. That's just my personal experience from a few weeks ago. Apparently OP had no issue at 450. So that's good. And yeah, Heimdall can save a few resources here and there.

    It wouldn't have made a difference for you as you had warlock in your team anyways.

    And it was a horrible decision to bring him because I didn't even use him
  • Sarvanga1_Sarvanga1_ Posts: 3,642 ★★★★★
    Would have used him if did the path after bug fix.

    I took aegon (5*), torch (5*), doom (r3 6*), red mags (r3 6*) and heimdall. Doom dealt with red skull in 2 revives for me so no need for an extra counter like ronan imo.

    I just finished path 3 yesterday btw.
