Help on 6.2.2 Sinister

So i am finally starting to make my way to thronebreaker and I am having trouble with sinister.

I have watched videos and still can't get the hang of what I'm doing and need a recommendation. I've tried a few times and i have more than enough units, I just don't want to start dumping them on this quest.

My squad is a 5* unduped warlock, 5* duped BWCV, doom, CAIW and 6* r3 domino. I know warlock is good for the fight, but does his ability need to be awakened?

At the end of the day, is this just a matter of me "gettin good?" I had a easier time with sinister in SOP and that's why I'm perplexed at my current issue with 6.2.2 boss.

Thanks for the help!

  • Have to have a fury to do damage so need ultron with warlock to make him viable

    That Sinister needs a specific counter. You need these:

    -Fury buff (ideally permanent)
    -Poison immunity (I think)

    And this is what you want:
    -as much damage as possible
    -be careful w DoT reflection on SP1
    -try not to get buffs bcs EMP mod (so ideal is permanent fury buff)
    -healblock/not crit too much (so RIP Domino)

    Usual strategy involves Heimdall+Angela synergy and any poison immune champ.

    there no is emp mod, but prey on the weak, which kinda makes the fight tricky if you use non permanent furies

    CMM with a couple of revives will do it. That’s what I did.

    Cleaning up the guidance above, you need a Fury buff which Warlock can get from:

    1) Hemidall + Hela or Angela (dash back, hold block for 1.5 second to activate)

    Or

    2) Robot Uprising by adding either Ultron or either Vision (but not Arkus). To activate it you need a debuff you're immune to thrown at you. Use a heavy to push him over to an SP1 and bait it...he'll throw the bleed back at you and the fury will come.

    I also love the adding in the AI uprising synergy with Guilly2099. Warlock will gain 70% of a bar of power whenever those bleeds are thrown at him which makes the fight faster.

    Try the fight with at least the fury buff active. If you still can't get past him...well, I guess it's time to "git good" as you said :)

    There’s a video on YouTube of warlock using nonstop sp3 against sinister

    Warlock doesn't need to be awakened for heal block
    But he needs ultron synergy to do that fight (if you don't have a fury buff active you deal 90 % less damage)
