    Wow that wags pull is insane! He solves one of the minor problems of the run which is debating buying stupefy for longer stuns
    I feel you on the gold issue too, only other thing I can recommend is grabbing it from the side quest store, or even selling some catalysts

    Yeah, it’s gonna be great!

    Already emptied the SQ store lol

    6.1 is looking pretty rough, was hoping to rank Mags a bit first, but it’s not looking like it

    Gold gets easier after act 6, iso becomes the problem.
    You just gotta pick those max utility champs to get through 6.1 and then you can get more gold to bulk up

    Day Three Update

    Overseer has been a blast to learn, I kinda wanna rank him on my main now lol

    Great choice man, I promise you won't regret it! Overseer is a great attacker with plenty of utility. I have him at 6* r4, and he crushes in gamemodes like BGs and questing. He's also really fun to play IMO, and can deal lots of damage if used properly.

    Day Four Update




    Bit of a slow day today. I got road blocked at the 6.1.2 Sentinel mini boss because of bio-hazard. Wags is going to be my conter, but I need to level him up a bit more first. Incursions reset tomorrow, so that should be a go for some more gold.

    On the bright side, I spent a lot of time outside today :lol:

    Hopefully I can push through 6.1 and hit cav tomorrow!

    He’s been doing great so far!

    My current rotation is either Sp3 into sp1 spam or sp2 into sp1 spam

    Day Five Update

    Title: CAVALIER





    Big day today!

    I made it through all of 6.1. Ran through 25 zones of incursions as well for the gold. The SQ store reset as well when I changed progression, so I grabbed another 600K gold from there.

    Grabbed the completion offer, which is great value. I got super lucky and pulled science from the gem crystal, so Overseer is R5 now!

    Plan for tomorrow is to push as far into 6.2 or 6.3 as possible.

    (I’m out of stashed revives now, minus the new ones from the offer hopefully that won’t affect me too much down the line)

    I’ll record an account tour tomorrow, and hopefully start posting semi regular videos!

    Here’s a quick write up on 6.1:

    6.1.1: The second hardest quest here. No retreat is super rough when blocked hits can eat most of your health bar. Sabertooth boss took forever with his regen.

    6.1.2: By far the worst of all 6 for my roster. Path was rough, stupid P2099 with indexable specials. Ultron boss took more revives than I’d like to admit with Wags

    I burned almost all my stored revives on these two quests, trying to use sub optimal champs :(

    6.1.3: Super easy quest after the previous two! Got the solo on the Ghost boss with Venompool

    6.1.4: Close encounters is mostly helpful regening up chip damage. Overseer works nice here with his agressive playstyle.

    6.1.5: Suprising easy! Got Xbones down to 8% with Overseer before I ate a combo and died. (About 300 hits!)Worst fight was Winter SOlidier with 15% buffet.

    6.1.6: I remember being stuck on the quest forever my first time through :lol: Used 3 revives on sentinel because I kept missing intercepts or forgetting about hurt locker.

    Day 6 Update

    Title: CAVALIER

    I recorded a quick four minute video going over my roster and account stuff if anyone is interested! I’ll do a crystal opening video each after act 6 as well.

    I did a voiceover as well, doesn’t sound great, but easier than trying subtitles :lol:

    https://youtu.be/bRG__Jz-cVc?si=WodtfecfOWqclpoo

    Today I completed 6.2. Didn’t play very well and burnt through a lot of revives, and even some units. I grabbed the 6.2 completion offer to help out for tomorrow. Not feeling good about the future of this account if I keep burning through revives this fast

    Tomorrow the plan is to run 6.3 completion, and hopefully track down some iso.

    First 2 6*s are Doc Strange and War Machine. :(

    War machine could be useful, anyone know much about him?

    Keep it going. If they ever let us change accounts easier, I would want to try a speed run. But I'd hate having to sign out and back in. So I'm living through yours and Cantona59.

    Same, I’ve been doing this account on my iPad. Which might be why I’ve been playing so bad lol

    Keep it up! You’re almost through the worst of it. Now that you have refills to spare you can run through the apothecary daily for an extra revive. Also pay attention to your 22h events, if it’s hero use or level up you can snag another quick revive and some units for free. Also I wouldn’t worry too much about spending items in act 6, the other acts probably won’t be as expensive to get through.

    Yeah those are a rough 2 6*. Doctor strange probably won’t be used, war machine could be nice for a bit of extra attack through his prefights for guardian, also you now have someone who can deal with Havoks reliably. His damage isn’t actually bad it just takes 2 sp2s to get ramped which is too slow for a lot of people for bgs. In questing though it’s not as big of a deal. Hopefully your future 6* treat you better👍🏻

    Day Seven Update

    Title: CAVALIER




    Well today kinda sucked :(

    Made it through 6.3.1, with Fury as my boss counter. Took me 3 revives to figure out how to evade her specials without dexing, cause I couldn’t out damage buffet, but I made it through.

    I’m at a standstill with 6.3.2. I spent most of the day trying out various paths, and none of them seem to work for me.

    This run might be a dud, epically after those two 6*s…

    (War Machine hits decently hard, but doesn’t really have any useful utility for me at the moment)

    I just looked 6.3.2 and I’m thinking you might be able to do the evade path with nick fury. You also could parry heavy with some other people if fury died, but he’s definitely your best bet. Other than that, you might be able to go for the power shield path, but it’s annoyingly long and isn’t going to be super fun. It’s an option though.
    I think if your next 6 star is very good, you can definitely continue with this roster. It’s not ideal, but you have some bases covered. I know level up resources are tight, but guardian could be helpful if you need damage. He’s got all of it without the awakening. The sig gives him significant utility.

    Agree with the above comment. I took the power shield path on my run and it was incredibly easy but I was lucky to have apoc. It’s a mostly skill path, however you do have wags and Storm, guardian also might do well. I think that path would be your best bet.

    Day Eight Update

    Title: CAVALIER




    So I decided to go for it and pushed my way through 6.3. Now all I’ve got left are 100 units, no stashed revives. 6.3.6 Cap ate up the majority of my units, not a fun fight. :lol:

    And… I pull sentry as my 3rd 6* :(

    I’ll try some 6.4 tomorrow, but I’m probably not going far

    I ended up pushing through the Caltrops path with Wags and a bunch of revives. Tried the evade path with fury, but the Gassed node (or whatever its called) kept killing him before I could get any charges.

    Definitely would have loved to have pulled Guardian earlier, he’s dope!
