I recently got a 4* Scarlet Witch and I also have a Generic Awakening gem! Should I use it on her?
I also have 32 mystic signature stones

    She needs to be of high sig level (60+) to be God tier so wait to have enough sig stones and hopefully will get a 4* mystic awakening by then.

    SW is awesome at max sig. She's pretty good at sig 60. At low sig levels ... not nearly as impressive; I wouldn't recommend that. Rogue seems like another reasonable option (reliable healing and power steal, which get better once duped).

    But IMO Ghost Rider would be your best choice -- you've already got him at 5/50; his prestige would be a bit better; and I think duping him would make him incrementally better (another Judgment + an attack buff).

    Ghost Rider is a terrible option. Only because he doesn't need to be awakened.

    Scarlet Witch is for the long haul. At this point in the game, it shouldn't be very difficult for you to get 4* sig stones.
  • Yes
    ...with a caveat. I have a 5/50 Scarlet at max sig 99 and there is nothing like her. She is ridiculous even post nerf. So it is a "yes" if you plan on maxing her. She is only good duped, unlike many other champs, but she does need to be high sig level. I just devoted all my generic and of course mystic gems to her for a few months. WAY worth it.
    You could wait for a magic to dupe also. Maybe see if you can collect sig stones, hold the awakening gem until you have enough to take Scarlet to 60+ and see if you have any other mystic options by then. If not. Go for it.

    Sw definitely yes as i prefer using sig stones on those champs which are not available in 5* and she is beast her sp2 does some crazy damage after getting dupe

    This player has 3 5/50s. Perhaps they're not worried about the prestige race yet, but... prestige does matter for AQ results -- which is part of why I'd recommend GR. But if they're going to be using GR anyway -- even a small incremental benefit is likely to be worthwhile.

    It's true that one can plan to eventually max SW's sig, but by the same token eventually you're likely to duplicate her from a crystal; and you can look at how many sig stones you've got now and how long that's taken as an idea how long it'll take to get over sig60.

    Having seen a sig99 5/50 SW (and played with a sig 60 4/40 SW) -- I can see why you might want to use an awakening gem on her ... but unless you've got a lot of sig stones ready, it wouldn't be my first choice.

    When you pull doc voodoo, Hood or iceman, u damm the day you spend it for the witch.
    Especial voodoo will likely work very Well with Almost 20 Stones.

    Only Vision worth it. Perfekt for aq. Powernodes, poison, bleed. No Problemo with him.

    Vision doesn’t need a ag. Neither does hood or iceman. Unless you are sticking iceman on defence. Voodoo yes needs to be awakened but you could easy get a voodoo as a 5* and dupe him there then wasted the gem on the 4* version.

    Yes awaken the witch and sig her out!!

    First you need prestige, then work on fun.
    go for ghost Rider.
    or compromise and go for Rogue then 5/50 her.
    Most of SW usefulness has been nerfed by later content. So you probably don't need her for anything.

    First he needs an attack team for aq and aw before worries about prestige.

    Yup, i spend 45000 Red shards for the voodoo crystal. Got none so far, Not speaking of a dupe... SL Waiting over a year and nothing so far.
    4 * Voodoo is hell!
    Hood on (ok high sig Level) recharging keeps enemy quite Good from sp3

    If your that lucky to have a 4* and a 5* Voodoo awakened, your Should go fir lottery

    The last Good fight witch is usefull is Maestro akt4.
    From There only aq for her.

    No I get it. completely. but if you're debating as to which 4*'s to awaken, then you're probably not thinking much about the prestige game just yet. that sort of speak is for the end game.

    On more thing, if you try to get uncollected. It makes a huge difference to your units Stack, if you are standing against the collector with a undupe Vision and a sig 99 witch.
    Or with a awakened Vision.
    You ever asked yourself why Vision is on of the rare Champions which will be Sold for real bucks (100?) one time a year?

    That’s not the same vision. There is original vision with the cartoon purple look and the age of ultron vision which he has. Yes I would be happy to take a sig 99 sw up against the collector. She would do better then the vision he has.

    I'll definitely max her out if I dupe her! I have 2 T4 mystic class cats and about 10k T4 mystic frags! Thanks for the advice btw :)

    Use on Ant-man. Not even a debate
  • Go with SW if you are in it for the long haul. Just realize that you won’t see the benefits until you level her up and get her to a higher sig level.

    GR would be my other choice. I think he is underrated because he is more difficult to use. Having another judgement to stack can make a difference. The extra damage that Vengence does is good. Or you can make your bleed last longer. Or you can make lifesteal last longer. Or you can make power drain last longer. You get the idea.
  • No, wait for a better champ
    Go rouge or ghost rider
  • Yes
    Yes if u got plenty of sig stones
  • No, wait for a better champ
    Just save it. I've been saving mine just cause and I've could have used it on Wolverine a long time ago.

    Love that a gem poll from 10 months ago just started getting votes again.

    I am assuming you made the call by now what did you choose to do.

    Scarlet witch is without a doubt one of the best champs in the 4* pool, and she's heavily reliant on her sig. The amount of "better options" can be counted on one hand and are arguable at best. There's a reason she's so highly regarded. I have her in AQ/AW or high end questing at pretty much all times. Awaken her, max her and enjoy.
