**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!

Five Hit Combo Results in 2 Bars of Power ... Why?

DeaconDeacon Posts: 4,152 ★★★★★
Please help me with this. Is there any scenario that doesn't include a power gain node of some sort that would cause Absorbing Man to gain 2 bars of power from a simple five hit combo? There are no amount of buffs that would or could be nullified from Absorbing Man of all defenders that would result in 2 full bars of power from ONE five hit combo .... and I am NOT exaggerating. Had I done 2 five hit combos he would have been at an SP3. It was a simple no buff champ (Vision OG) vs Abs Man. And I'm talking about no triggering dex or anything .. the dude was literally exploding with power.

For clarity, this was node 38 in War ... generic placement that I've taken a thousand times and haven't run into any Absorbing Man that gained power like that.

So help me understand masteries or whatever the situation that would produce 2 full bars of power after one five hit combo? It totally altered the way I played the match because he gained power at an astronomical rate. Yes I took him down but geez ... I just wasn't prepared for the crazy power gain.

    If you hit his block maybe while you got sythesis?

    Nope. Even if I did .. nope. It was just like this ... fight start .. parry .. five hit combo .. two bars of power. I nearly got cooked trying to get even one bar for myself before pushing him to an SP3 lol

    This might be a bug Absman can gain power from mystic dispersion if there are buffs

    U parried...abs man hit your block, which gives him the power gained from synthesis. If i am not wrong
    Which ability is that? Shouldn't abs man be the one blocking?

    I remember most of node names, but not numbers. Stopped years ago. TMI for old age. I'm right there with you.

    This question is definitely important to OP to answer.
    Nope there was no Wong.

    Was this inflated power rate only for the first 5 hit combo or for the entire fight

    the ENTIRE fight ... it was quite ridiculous. And it's not even a slight exaggeration. I barely and I mean barely managed to avoid total death. I have zero clue as to why beyond KABOOM.

    The moment it was over ... I wish I had .. going into it though I was prepared for a normal Abs fight but when I saw this stupidity the only thing I thought about was surviving ... couldn't pause to hit record .. I was in survival mode lol

    Just an update ... fought another Abs Man .. same exact node .. same exact champs involved and worked as intended .. no ridiculous power gain anywhere in sight. outside of random dex fails ... the fight played out exactly as it should have from a power gaining aspect.

    No idea if this is going to be helpful here but for that particular setup Viv works wonders.

    Possibly it was mastery setup interaction from the defender?

    which mastery though beyond Mystic Dispersion grants power gain?
