Summoners, the Necrosword Crystals (the crystals in the Knull Cavalier Preview Bundle) currently have a higher than intended drop rate of 6-Star Champions.

We will be leaving the crystals as is for the time being, but will be correcting the drop rates before Knull receives his official release on October 28th. To ensure that this does not affect anybody that purchased this preview bundle, we will be auto-opening these crystals before that date, but this means you will not see what you received. To avoid any confusion, please open your crystals yourself ASAP.

    Interesting…I’m one of several on here who used him and didn’t get the point. Filed a ticket, so we will see what they do. Or I could just do it again…

    Dr. Zola

    Edit: it is working now. Can confirm second run with Ronan have #metal point.

    There are always going to be people who have completed just about everything in the game that aren't really challenged by much of anything. This is a bit easier because there are a number of counters. If I remember correctly, that was the complaint with Mysterio, that there was too narrow an option. If it's that easy for you, get the Point and move along. Lol.

    good news is 99% of active players dont go to forum and probably did quite as well as OP, but dont find the need to brag about how easy all this is...

    @StevieManWonder congrats bruv. you are a very skilled player! hope to see you in summoner showdown :)
    I'm not sure you're clear on the 99% of the Player Base. We are in fact talking about the 1-5% that isnt challenged by anything.

    One thing I will say is that while this fight was fairly easy, it seemed (to me at least) to be much less repetitive compared to venom and DH

    R3 Mangog with suicides one shot. Getting ramped up is still a pain but it’s literally the only fight that he felt good
  • grfvbgrfvb Posts: 209 ★★
    to be fair to the other half.. some great suggestions tho.. just tried mangog out, ranked him up purely for defence. and only played with him now properly. very fun champ :)

    nah what im saying is majority of players dont complain nor brag, they just play the game and enjoy it.. if it easy? great, too hard? tough luck 🤷‍♂️got baited by the title tbh - was hoping to see some interesting counters Bero Man style, but half of posts are just ppl flexing 😶
    V true, was also hoping for some "here's how to do it with magik/King pin etc".

    If it's helps anyone, magik; trick is waiting out the first sp1 or sp2 bait unstoppable, then sp2 to drain and lock him, then only medium light light for back draft intercepts. He's aggressive, but sometimes he doesn't dash in and the medium on the back draft stops you whiffing. Then you can just parry and continue the back draft cycle.

    yeh.. just need to throw sp1 twice. then play really aggresively.. u can stack up staggers even by hitting to his block. i got like 5+ staggers on him all the time... the only thing i noticed he was throwing sp even if i was away and holding block lol?... not a biggie. just restart and go again, great practice grouned for act 6 adaptoid if ppl havent explored yet

    Venom can keep at 100% and just block everything.. one of the easiest option in my runs ..

    I have now done soloes with Magik , BWDO, stealthy, Doom, Ronan, venom, KP

    Do you think an R1 L25 6* venom would be able to handle it? I’m looking for options on my mini account with limited roster depth. Or would block damage be too much
  • Lightburn22Lightburn22 Posts: 284 ★★


    I used Ronan after practice runs with Doom.

    But I didn't get the Special Objective for #Metal - bugged?


    Pretty sure that means he only counts as XL in aw only

    I don't mean to derail the post. Sorry in advance :) But on the subject of "Too easy": recently I've been sorta .. enlightened by some going ons that I had no idea beforehand.

    As it turns out, apparently many (not all!) vocal cries of content being "Too easy" that we've had the past year here in the forum are a calculated effort by a certain type of group of people who have much to gain (if u get my meaning) by the game being as tough as it can be.

    I too would have chalked it up to tinfoil hat stuff, if it wasn't blatanly clear that this type of "player" has an enormous presence in game nowdays. Unfortunately.

    So yeh. Whilst I still believe that some EndGame players who've rushed to be at the utmost limit of what can be achieved, and hence are jaded and crave harder and harder challenges...

    I used to find some comments kinda weird, even mindblowing. But they make sense now if you consider it as an effort to manipulate kbm. It also makes it easier to understand why some people get absolutely mad furious when kbm goes larger player base friendly. Like when they put out content that lots of people can access and enjoy.

    Or when they tune down, fix or (oh yes I will use that word haha) NERF content. The viciousness I've witnessed from some people in regards to those instances. Again, maybe not all of those guys get angry coz it directly affects their little scams... but some for sure do. U know who u are ;) haha

    I’m confused, are you accusing me of being a merc?
    Anyways, the frustration comes from the fact that there really hasn’t been any challenging content for deep endgame players in well over a year and a half and it’s making the game boring to people like me.

    No no no. Im not naming names but no, it wasnt directed at you. It's why I apologized posting here. It's just something Ive wanted to comment on for days. Im not a prollific forum writer but I did wanna point this out somewhere, coz I too was surprised when it was shared with me that this stuff has been happening. I stumbled upon the "too easy" subject, so took my chance 😆

    While I mostly agree, I've found Carinas challenges have scratched the difficult content itch for me. Grandmasters Gauntlet was kinda close. Summer of pain has been a disappointing distant 3rd.

    I really enjoyed the Act 6 Carina Challenges and the 3 star one in Act 5 that wasn’t the Loki or Cyclops one, but the Lab ones aren’t challenging, they’re just expensive because you’re guaranteed to die a ton

    you sir and few other deeeep endgame players are in top 0.0001% of best of the best players. something to certainly be proud of! the rest of us we enjoy any new content without any frustration. the only legit frustration is probs the ongoing parry bug 🙆‍♂️
