We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.

**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

7* Skill rank up poll

OakenshieldOakenshield Posts: 1,835 ★★★★
My Skill 7* Roster has been my weakest up until the last few weeks. I spent a long time with only one champ - Elsa (who certainly isn’t bad but also isn’t the best skill champ). However, over the past few weeks I’ve pulled Mantis, Crossbones, and today Black Cat. And also Ronin but don’t view him at the same level as the others.

I had pretty much decided to rank up Mantis, but just had a feeling I should hold off until the Romance event and now I’m glad I did given the Black Cat pull.

So, who do you think I should rank up? I have the 6* Black Widow relic so can pop that on Black Cat. She is probably my top option now, but I do have to figure out how to play her. That said, I have been impressed with Mantis as I’ve put her through her paces, and Crossbones is also quite good even without the dup - particularly since I have Odin and Mangog at 7* to help with the fury duration problem.

From a game mode standpoint, story content is my primary priority, but I do also do enough BGs that it is worth factoring in. I get to GC most seasons.

    @Nacho98 Thanks - any tips for using her? I’m a solid but not outstanding player so looking for the ‘scrub’ version.

    Mantis
    I LOOOOOOVE Black Cat, but she hits upward well. Meanwhile, I used Mantis a lot a couple of months ago and really liked her as well, but got an influx of various champs over Cyber Weekend, Christmas and after Necropolis, so it's been a while since I used her. When I did use her (7r1) in Battlegrounds recently, I discovered that her SP2 didn't nuke down my opponents the way it used to when I didn't go up against mostly 6r5s, 7r2s and 7r3s. And the problem is, if it doesn't nuke the opponent down, it's a lot of building up to another SP2 required to actually get them down.

    I personally like Black Cat more as a champion than Mantis, but if you really enjoy both champions, I feel like Mantis would probably benefit from the rank-up more than Black Cat would.

    Intercept or punish specials/heavies to grab the Calling Card. Throw it back to them and go back and forth to build up your crits. Launching a sp2 while you have the card puts a nice Sabotage debuff on them, or you can let the Heist time expire while they have the card on them, and it'll apply the Sabotage as well. She made for a nice Thing killer in BGs even with the polka dot power node due to Sabotage and the direct damage it can deal.

    That relic is a big help too on her.

    I’m not the best at her either but I’m getting better as I play more. Mostly I just bait heavies and heavy counter to try and flip the card as much as possible. If you don’t feel comfortable doing that then just punish heavies and then parry heavy. I’ve felt that if I’m using the sabotage then I don’t really need to flip the card back and forth a bunch because of the damage from failed abilities is enough. Other than that just SP2 before the time runs out. She’s a lot of fun and I’m not the best at her yet
