Summoners, we are aware of an issue where the Summoner Sigil's Golden Circle Quest is not available to all players. We are continuing to investigate this. We will be sure to compensate for any missed Gold once we have fixed the issue.

Champion Spotlight - Storm (Classic) (2022 Update)

About Storm (Classic)
Mutant, thief, leader, goddess – Ororo Munroe has played many roles in her life. As Storm, she controls all aspects of the weather on an astonishing scale. Tornados, lightning, and blizzards are hers to command. Summoned from her home in Africa by Professor X, Ororo found a new family in the X-Men – and a new role, as a hero.


Storm (Classic)'s Mechanics

    Lightning strikes twice with Storm’s new overhaul! Along with the ability to harness the power of Mother Nature, Storm can now intensify her terrifying tornadoes with potent Prowess Buffs attainable through a variety of means. With proper Power management, Storm can ride the winds of her Special 2 by stunning her opponent senseless before striking with her Special 1. Preserve your Prowess for this moment by hitting the opponent with a Heavy attack, pausing their duration long enough for you to deliver the finishing blow.

BASE STATS & ABILITIES
   Health  Attack  PI (Max Signature)
 3-Star  5821  485  1519
 4-Star  14596  1216  3932
 5-Star  29264  2437  10540
 6-Star (Rank 3, Level 45)  37708  3140  13550

Character Class: Mutant
Basic Abilities: Prowess, Shock, Stun


STRENGTHS:
  • High Special Attack Damage
  • With a large amount of Prowess Buffs and one of the highest base Special Damage multipliers in The Contest, Storm packs a powerful punch during all of her Special Attacks.

  • Shock Immunity & Maybe More
  • In her base kit, Storm is Immune to Shock Debuffs and if she’s paired up with her Pyramid X counterpart she’ll gain access to Incinerate and Coldsnap Immunity as well.
WEAKNESSES:
  • Nullify and Stagger
  • Stripping Storm of her Prowess Buffs severely reduces the effectiveness of her Special Attacks.

  • Power Control
  • Debuffs such as Power Drain and Power Burn will severely hamper Storm’s ability to utilize her main damage source.

ABILITIES:
The following Stats and Abilities are based on a Rank 5, Level 65, 5-Star Champion


Always Active:
  • Storm’s control of the elements grants her Immunity to Shock effects.
Prowess Buffs:
  • Unless otherwise stated, Storms Prowess Buffs last 20 seconds and grant +20% Special Attack damage.
  • Each time either Champion lands a Critical Hit, gain 1 Prowess Buff.
  • Each time the opponent Purifies a Debuff, gain 1 Prowess Buff.
  • Each time Storm gains a Bleed effect, gain 2 Prowess Buffs.
  • Each time Storm’s Immunity prevents a Shock effect, gain 2 Prowess Buffs.
Developer’s Note: Storm’s Special Attacks are her bread, and her Prowess Buffs are the butter. Take note of how your opponent can help you pile on the Prowess!

Passive:
  • If a Skill Opponent Purifies a Stun Debuff, it is replaced with a passive Stun lasting 2 seconds
Heavy Attacks:
  • While charging or launching a Heavy Attack, all Prowess effects on Storm are Paused. Knocking the opponent down with this attack Pauses all Prowess effects on Storm for 10 seconds
Developer’s Note: At risk of losing that juicy Prowess stack? Out-wait that pesky Power Lock with a well-executed Heavy Attack.


SPECIAL ATTACKS
Special 1 - Lightning Strike:
  • Each hit has a 70% chance to inflict a Shock Debuff, causing 1827.75 Energy Damage over 6 seconds.
  • If the opponent is Stunned, the Shock chance becomes 100% and all Shocks on the opponent are Paused for 6 seconds.
Developer’s Note: Use in tandem with Storm’s Special 2 stun or a Parry for a shocking good time!

Special 2 - Gale:
  • First hit: Gain 1 Prowess Buff.
  • Final hit: 100% chance to inflict a 3 second Stun Debuff.

Special 3 - Tempest:
  • 100% chance to gain a non-stacking Precision Buff, increasing Critical Rating by +900 for 45 seconds.
Developer’s Note: Every Critical Hit nets Storm 1 Prowess Buff. Prioritizing your Special 3 early in the fight could grant significant gains to your subsequent Special Attacks.

Signature Ability - Conduit:
  • Launching a Special Attack grants Storm 1 Prowess Buff per level of Special Attack used. Additionally, each Prowess on Storm, to a maximum of 10, increases the Potency of her Shock Debuffs by +18%.


SYNERGY BONUSES - Unique
Enemies - (4* +) - With Magneto, Magneto (House of X), Sentinel, Mister Sinister
  • All Champions gain +155 Critical Rating.

Friends - (3* +) - With Magik, Jubilee, Kitty Pryde
  • All Champions gain +130 Armor Rating.

Teammates - (3* +) - With Cyclops, Cyclops (Blue Team)
  • All Champions gain +5% Perfect Block Chance.

Updated Incoming Synergy Bonuses
Terminated - From Nimrod
  • Storm (Old Effect): If failing to activate Stun during a Special 1, gain an indefinite Dormant Prowess that initializes when launching a Special 2, each increasing Special Attack Damage by 100% for 20 seconds. Max 5.
  • Storm (New Effect): Whenever Storm fails to activate a personal Shock or Stun effect during a Special Attack, she gains 3 Prowess Buffs.

Under the Weather - From Storm (Pyramid X)
  • Storm (Old Effect): Gain up to 100% Shock, Coldsnap, and Incinerate Resistance based on Stored Power. While Suffering from a Shock, Coldsnap, or Incinerate Debuff, Storm's Special Attack Damage is increased by 30%.
  • Storm (New Effect): Gain Immunity to Incinerate and Coldsnap effects. Each time an Immunity prevents one of these effects, gain 2 Prowess Buffs.

RECOMMENDED MASTERIES
Precision:
  • Keeping Storm’s Critical Rating high will give you a reliable source of precious Prowess Buffs

Recoil:
  • Storm’s heavy reliance on Special Attacks makes Recoil a no-brainer. Just watch your health bar!

Stupefy
  • Increasing the duration of Stun can give you the extra breathing room necessary to pull off a Special 2 + Special 1 combo.

    Either way it was more than she had.
  • TyphoonTyphoon Posts: 883 ★★★★
    Seems like a legit buff to me. If you read the patch notes, she also got some VFX changes including heavy, special, and victory animations.

    I'll wait to draw conclusions until I can play her in game.

    Well there’s a potential new hazard shift team in town😂
  • MaxtheSilentMaxtheSilent Posts: 489 ★★★
    In the right match up she will get lots of potent long lasting prowess and she will hit really hard. With some synergies she will be amazing. Make her a horseman and go to a bleed node and she’s going to be insane. She has the potential to have triple immunity before Horseman or Prof X bleed/poison resistance. I was hoping she’d be a thorns counter and I also wanted an energize buff somewhere but that’s all just wishful thinking.Her counter to purify on skill champs plus immunities is welcome utility paired with her very high damage potential.
  • FluffyPigMonsterFluffyPigMonster Posts: 2,069 ★★★★★
    I look most forward to her special and heavy animation changes. I loved Gamora’s new animations.

    Hopefully she’s usable in day to day use.

    I would say that in this case, you’ve undervalued Kabam’s effort here. I think this is a great buff. She is very different than what she was, and I think a slight bit above storm px

    I was simply responding to the comments about it being a copy-and-paste. Of course, that's not my full assessment.

    She is also not very Nimrod friendly. If he starts canceling her prowess for shock it will have the opposite effect. Negate 1 but add 2? Uh oh.

    She already had the potential to kill you with 1 special if you messed up.

    Now you have to be super careful (curious on the animations) or else K.O.

    I wonder how much block damage you will take if she has a certain amount of prowess.

    I want to see how high we can stack them.
  • PapaMidnite007PapaMidnite007 Posts: 747 ★★★
    Hmm Storm definitely is better than her previous self with this buff. Now to see how this turns out.

    Storm: Can I copy your homework?
    Storm px: yeah just change it up a bit so it doesn’t look obvious you copied.
  • Kappa2gKappa2g Posts: 153 ★★★
    I hope this is the baseline standard going forward with buffing 2015-2017 champions, modernizing their kit with abilities that are relevant to their class with some amazing new animations. The new special attacks make you feel like playing an entirely new champion,

    “ Passive:

    Did this not make it to her kit in game?
  • Fit2btiedFit2btied Posts: 5
    I don’t know about everyone else who has her but the PI dropped from over 9k to 7.5k. This can’t be right. It should be 10540 by the new kit description.

    I was seeing the same thing, tried her against a bunch of shrug champs and thought it was a bug, then saw it didn’t even make it into her kit!

    It's a bug. They're working on a fix.

    you guys should 100% add starship hulk and odin force thor. it’s both of their 60 year anniversaries and they’re going to fight in the comics and the 2 of them have huge fanbases.

    This should be showing up correctly in her kit now. You may need to restart your device if you haven't already though.

    Storm’s really good this week in Battlegrounds, with masochism node.

    Also she lights it up against Kingpin in general, which also helps in BG bc people use him as a defender a lot.

    Thanks, Kabam. Wonderful buff.

    Just curious can “queen” and “omega-level” mutant be added to her about section?

    ROL Champs will get animation updates, but not ability updates.
