How do you fight Mordo?

Hi, just wondering how I can get past Mordo's Astral Evade? I have an unduped Iceman, but not sure if that would exactly do the trick. Any strategies on fighting him are appreciated (Fighting him in Act 5.1.6 btw).

    Bait heavies and specials then counter. Basically treat him like he's stun immune. Power control will help quite a bit.

    Iceman isn't the worst option because his ice armor can save you if you catch a sp3, but I'd go for magik or vision first.

    Mordo is easy. Treat his power gain timer like a bane timer. As long as he isn’t on power gain he attacks normally.
    When and if you stun him watch your stun debuff timer when it’s about to end then hit him. I’m sure some youtuber made a video about how to fight him.

    One method I tried is light hit followed by heavy, or heavy but at a slight distance so if Mordo dash, the timing will connect with hit.

    For sure, there are better ways and mine is a risk I take.

    I've actually learned to Block without triggering Parry when fighting Mordo. It helps. It takes practice, but it's all about timing, just after you would a Parry. Quake helps as well. Using Charges and Edaving after. Miike suggested hitting him when he's Blocking back when he was released, and it does some Damage to do so because he takes a bit through Block. Just practice, mostly. It'll get easier.

    Parry, wait for the timer to almost run out then hit for a combo.

    If he blocks and holds, heavy to stop power gain.

    Or use drax and medium hit after parry.

    Thank you all! I just beat him (He was a lot easier than I thought, but still a hassle lol).
