5* R5 Prof X with a 200% mutant power booster made the fight easier!

Took me about an hour before I stopped taking hits to the face lol

Feel free to ask any questions if you are trying with Prof!

    I'd like to know what your general strategy was as well. All of the YouTube solos I can find just have them playing and not talking or explaining.

    Also love how you have almost full health.

    And the usual special
    rotation for prof x is…?

    @Rillian just spam specials, heavy cancelling into all of them. On the last sp1 you can throw, dash back instead of hold heavy

    Sorry, I didn’t record it, but I’ll do my best to explain my strategy. I might try and make a video tomorrow…



    To start the fight, dex and hit into his block. First two combos into his block should be MLLL then MLL. That will give him 5 energize and make pushing him to sp1 easier.

    Then only hit him with heavies, specials, and Mediums into block. Use the blocked hits to gain space.

    Heavy counter his sp1, by dashing back, pausing, then dashing back again. Or you can dash back three times.

    When your falter is on cooldown, hit into his block with Mediums to gain space, and heavy counter his sp1.

    When your falter is up, go for heavy intercepts. Once you get the hang of it, you can heavy intercept him consistently.

    Don’t hit him with ANY non bloced Mediums or Lights, and don’t hit into his block with lights.

    For specials, build up to just under an Sp3 at the start, then execute the usual special rotation. Make sure to end with a prowess refresh.

    After that, try and build to your Sp2 before the prowesses expire, but don’t be afraid to use your Sp1s.

    That’s pretty much it! LMK if you have any questions. I’ll try and record a vid tomorrow

    Very nice! Thank you very much for that guide! I think this write-up is very clear and straight to the point.

    There were 150 successful hits, plus 300+ hitting blocks.
    Painful but interesting experience lol.

    I saw yours first so that’s who’ll I’ll remember. Thanks for the write up @Riptide . Just did it with a massively boosted r3 duped Prof X and 3 L1 revives. I would have spent so much more without your knowledge.
