Struggling with EoP XBones

My currently is CGR, Herc, and Heimdoll. I just cannot get the Xbones under 80% in my first go and it’s starting to piss me off. Any other counters that I could place in that would still allow me to do the EoP run only once

    I’m sure you’re already doing this, but parry a few times at the beginning of the fight, give him 3 or 4 furies then start to attack. Make sure to place the infuriate on him ASAP so he either shrugs it or you get intercepts. Then when you go immortal just play insanely aggressively. If you get him down to 50% or more just revive from there

    My team was Herc, iHulk (for synergy and Dormammu), and Ronan (for Ikaris), all 5*s. XBones was the worst fight, but I used it mostly to ramp Herc. I started each fight parrying him until he had 3 Fury buffs before I hit him so that the Bane timer wouldn't start until I could do some damage. The run took me a handful of revives, but it was worth it.

    So I was having a similar issue but I decided to just go with the full YOLO team. I ended up going with herc Odin and heimdall. I went with a slightly different strat, I just sat there holding heavy and intercepting with my heavy. Getting two charges at a time and just nuked him. Took two or three tries to get the solo but because I had all the herc charges already by the time I went unblockable it was much easier. And a ramped herc can do all the fights in a revive or two. Overall took me 3 or 4 review total and I’m not some kind of amazing fighter so just give it a few goes till you get the lucky nuke down

    I’d restart with herc, Odin and heimdall honestly cost me 500 units in revives to do the full lot with that team

    I too struggled with his bane, rest of the fights are easy but this crossbones with bane is little tricky for me

    What benefit does Odin provide?
  • SkyLord7000SkyLord7000 Posts: 3,779 ★★★★★

    What benefit does Odin provide?

    Three buffs which helps a ton for dormammu

    Protection could also be nice but I didn’t notice it to much
  • DanielRandDanielRand Posts: 133 ★★
    Gotcha. Thought I was missing a synergy somehow

    You got yourself a king groot? Still allows you to do a cosmic team

    Ah nevermind, I see you did it already

    just funny how they tuned the Crossbones fight to be reluctant to throw specials .. he's the only fight in the whole gambit that acts that way. the AI in that fight is terrible.
  • cytwbccytwbc Posts: 93
    just parry until he has 3 buffs, then play mad super aggressive, i got him down to 8% before i had to use a revive, but i also used a R4 6*. the whole team for my second run (1st team was all mutant R4 Apoc, Cable and OR, paragon of course) was R4 Herc R3 IHulk and R5 Magik(for Ikaris but that didnt work the way i wanted to)

    For which fights did you use Odin prefight abilities ?

    That's cool and all
    but the real struggle is me trying to comprehend the heimdall rank up

    It's just a Rank 2. Easy to R2 now. Still usable in quests to chip off some damage and can be a good defender at some scenarions.

    Figured that if I bring him on the team for the synergy he should be at a level where he should do some damage in case all else fails. Doesn’t apply to EoP tho🤷‍♂️
