**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.

**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

Do you think cable is worth R3 if I already have Apoc at R3

Title says it all. I have an extra mutant T5 ATM thanks to gauntlet and my apoc is already r3 and my warlock is already r3 who has a nice synergy with cable as well so heavily leaning towards doing it just don't want it to not be worth it so wanted to get some opinions. Also my cable is already duped and r2 as well.

I know I could hold it and wait to pull like professor x or something but that will probably take forever especially since when I finish exploring abyss I'm probably picking cosmic for my nexus choice.

    I have apoc at r3 and cable at r2. I’d hold it. Cable is amazing but not sure he’s gonna gain much more. I think his heavy goes up about 3k attack, which of corse is scaled. Save it.

    What I was thinking originally it's just the more I use him the more I think we'll Everytime I bring apoc and warlock I bring cable along as well plus if I r3 him then there's less need to make him a horseman and I can keep apocs charges too

    Totally, i have a r3 Apoc and took Cable to r3 over Sunspot, Namor, Emma, and Havok.

    Idk, depends on your other mutant r3s or other mutants in general.

    I should have specified that i am at 100% of everything, so Cable was a good/fun choice.

    Try to think a bit, who you would rank up over him, if you think they need dupe/high sig or if they benefit of masteries you (don't) have.
    Personally, I would rank him, as mutants are pretty spoiled with dupes and sigs, but Cable is whole package unduped. And he is great duo with Warlock.

    I would say yes since him and apoc are attached at the hip

    What’s the probability that Cable is on the buff list? Even as a numbers update?

    Low. Especially because of how good and easily accessible his Apoc synergy is.

    My 6* Apoc is dupped and r3. My 6* cable is dupped and r2. I use them together but maybe I’m missing something. Basically, Cable gives Apoc max charges and Apoc gives Cable stackable degen. Is that all? I know the stacking degens are nice but is it enough to r3 Cable? I have 6* prof x, red mags, and colossus as possible r3 options.

    I believe the same. We can hope though.

    Does Mr. Fantastic need his dup to be good? My 6* is at r2 and he’s been fun but I don’t think I really know how to use him the best way yet.

Is that all? I know the stacking degens are nice but is it enough to r3 Cable? I have 6* prof x, red mags, and colossus as possible r3 options.

    If you have other/better options then r2 would probably be fine for cable but for me where I don't have any other 6* mutants worth ranking up and where I already bring apoc and cable everywhere together it's more worth it. And yes that's the basics of it but for my situation specifically to put in perspective my cable is duped so when I have him out with apoc and warlock every heavy attack I do hits for 20K+ damage in degens plus the damage from the heavy attack itself and every time I fill a bar of power I have a 40% chance to gain an extra half bar of power and a 25% chance to Regen 6315 health and that's all without even making him a horseman. Lately I've been running half suicides (just double edge and a couple points in coagulate and 1 point in WP) so if I make him a horseman than I get extra health from WP via DE since I'm bleed resistant along with the prowess and other horseman benefits.

    Okay I think I've talked myself into r3ing him if I don't pull any other worthwhile mutants while I'm waiting for all the t4 mutant cats I need
