Stat Focus Guide

With all the new 7*s since the initial release, can anyone recommend a good guide for the best choices for stat focus options s for each champ? I’m sure @Cat_Murdock has something well done out there…

    I do not (I routinely for get to change mine off the default), but Kam does! Here are his recommendations for Stat Focus:

    Shuri wants Crit Damage

    I notice in the list that no one has armor penetration recommended. I’ve found that champions that don’t crit get a solid damage increase from armor penetration stat focus. Someone like crossbones who has benefits on crits may want the extra crit rate but I feel like Shocker should be recommended for armor penetration instead of special damage.

    I also feel like Shuri should use crit damage instead of special damage. Your big numbers from her are not usually coming from the special attacks

    Great points @Maratox I noticed that too - G2099 has Crit Rate stat focus recommended but she doesn’t crit. So think I’ll change that recommendation on my G2099. Overall it’s a helpful guide though.

    Classical storm should get crit rate coz it's very important for her to crit on specials plus she get more prowess on crits.

    Domino should use crit damage, just like shuri, as her crit bleeds benefit from the crit damage rating (in that case hawkeye too).
  • HeattblasttHeattblastt Posts: 254 ★★
    Also Havok's main damage comes from sp3 and detonation. So not that much requirement of crits.

    Like Captain Rogers said G2099 can still benefit from crit rate for the degen, but it’s the argument of whether more base damage or a higher chance for degen is better. And that could all depend on nodes and defenders

    I’d like to add that Block Proficiency is incredibly underrated for BGs. Keep in mind those 7 star defenders will be running block penetration

    Thanks to everyone for the input here. I’ve adjusted my champs’ stat focus based on all the recommendations. Big ups to all of you!

    Angela should get crit rate, because she gets tge huntress buff on crits. You want that buff active before you throw the sp1.

    This is a good stat but some don't really compute. Think about them yourself. For example Shocker's damage comes from his heavy. Special Damage is probably good but armor penetration is probably better. Few other in there.

    The crit dmg one barely makes a difference. They should really look to buff it up a bit, its definitely undercooked. It barely increases mantis & morb's sp2 dmg, you are better off going with special dmg on them. Even on a champ like elsa who crits very often, it increases dmg by like ~100 per hit. That's nothing.

    I initially thought for my r2 Shocker, "oh his crit rate is super high, albeit utilized differently, let me just make it more crazy." Well that added a whoppin' 1% increase. I assume because his natural kit was just so damn high to begin with but, not worth it at all. Decided the 11.2% for armor pen was much more beneficial.

    Wouldn't it also depend on the champions base crit dmg rating?

    Did you try it on Shuri?

    Morbius benefits more from crit damage than special damage.
  • GhostboytjieGhostboytjie Posts: 2,198 ★★★★★
    @jcphillips7 @HungaryHippo shocker benefits more from that 1% crit than he does with armor penetration :). It may just not seem like it.

    Also I wouldn't follow the list above. Its like a 60% wrong and 40% right list

    I don't have her. Kam's list has her on special dmg stat focus, so I'm guessing crit dmg boost doesn't make too much of a difference. We're talking about the champ with the highest possible base crit dmg, if that isn't enough then it's virtually useless for others.
  • GhostboytjieGhostboytjie Posts: 2,198 ★★★★★
    @Sachhyam257 Shuri has guaranteed crits after sp1 so think of it as 100% crit rate pair that with critical damage rating. Not only does her damage increase by a small little amount. So does her critical shocks. And i'd rather have higher critical shock than more special damage.

    Wouldn't Silk benefit more from special damage?

    Cat Murdock, what would you recommend for The Destroyer.. I happen to get him as 7*.. I have stat focus (offense) block penetration and (defense) physical resistance with 5* Ghostrider relic.

    do you think a 6* Juggernaut relic is better?

    I use a r2 6* Juggs relic on Destroyer. It just seems to overall benefit him more since it utilizes Unstoppable as well as Fury

    Sadly, after I use relic awaken gem and rank2 on 6* Gambit relic (I pull him 😟🙁😥😞), then awaken Scarlett Witch and Spiderman 2099 (sigs), last 6* relic is Juggernaut.

    Relic awakening gem? Was this a money deal?

    don't remember whether it is unit or $$$ deal.. but I got most of the x-magica offers.. even the ehem* high unit 7* x-magica crystal (pull Adam Warlock - again)

    Why physical resist on mojo? I have mine on special damage to make sp2 degens more potent.

    If physical resist is just because you have to stun and hold block once in a while then I don't think it's worth it.
