I have 5 R5 5* Mutants and not desperate to take anyone else right now, but considering Cable simply due to how good he is with Apoc. Should I use the R4-R5 gem on him or on someone else? Just in case anyone says it, I have a 6* R2 Domino so not considering the 5* right now.

    Prof X. Then worry about cable. He should be perfectly fine at r4 for the time being

    Cable is a fantastic champ, and very useful and powerful when a Horseman.....but, there are a few more mutants that rank slightly above him, especially Prof. X.

    P.S. Psylocke as a Horseman is absolutely filthy, great champ to be considered afterwards.

    Use on Prof X unless you run suicides

    Can't go wrong with him/Namor (depends on sig level tho) or Prof X. All three are bangers.

    I do not think cable is totally useless

    But he has an Apoc

    Cable's a monster with the Apoc synergy

    Yeah but he’s absolutely useless without. So if Apoc is in war or aq then what? Cable sits and does nothing. Waste of r4-5 gem imo, I’d do professor X.

    Btw, Apoc + aa is a great team for war attack. I wouldn’t use the third spot for another mutant. Other then questing you will not have space for Apoc + cable.

    Depends which champ u like to use. For me I prefer use apocalypse more than Professor X. And whenever I bring apocalypse I will bring cable along. Previously I choose cable to r5 and Professor X still staying at r4. No regret at all. Cable is sick. He clear a lot of content for me and I bring him and apoc to aw sometimes

    I used him as r5 unawaken for 2 months and today I’m happy he got awaken from basic pull.

    I probably should have mentioned I run suicides and know Prof X isn't very suicide friendly. I don't know if that changes anyones answer, but y'all have given me a lot to think about. I know Cable for sure isn't worth it without Apoc, but I have most of my Mutant class already set so that's why I'm considering it. At the end of the day I don't NEED to rank up anyone else. Just wondering if Cable would be worth it. Thanks everyone!

    Cable is def worth it w Apoc synergy. But Professor X, and I’d add Emma Frost to the mix as well, are better all-around champs who are worth working through the learning curve. Professor X in particular if u have the Grand Master fight on ur radar at all. Emma’s a beast for the mutant chapter in the new Variant.

    Thanks. I have been a F2P player for about 5 years (until the other day with the doubloons offers, lol) and progression was rather slow until the past year. With the improvement to AQ rewards and Glory store, plus getting motivation to complete and explore content (Act 6, 7.1, Variant 6) when Thronebreaker became a thing, my roster has exploded in the past year. Went from 3 R5 5*s to 26 R5 5*s/R2 6*. Now I have 2 R3. If you play long enough and complete content, you may not get every champ you want, but you can build your roster for sure. Good luck to you!

    Depends on your roster and mastery set up tbh, i run suicides and i use my R3 Cable a lot more than my prof x. He can finish fights really fast before he even gets 1 bar of power most of the time when heavy spamming so no need to throw specials.
