So just got here from 5 star arena I just want to know how to use her, which special attacks I should use more often with her, and if I should upgrade her or Rogue to rank 4
I have no experience with Rogue, but have been told she's awesome too.
Like wolverine, her regen is stronger if she has more power. So if you need to regen, dont use your SPs and accumulate power. If you dont need to regen, use SP2. If you dont need to regen and she's awakened, I recommend waiting to have at least 3 stacks of cruelty buffs/bleed debuffs before launching your SP2 for increase crit chance and damage.
since i have Deep Wounds 5/5 and assassin 3/5, opponents go from 20%-0% life in seconds. and i took down ROL winter soldier in 160 hits
She really benefits from the dupe, I really advise awakening her if you don't mind the prestige.
But if you're looking for prestige than not only is rogue a beast but her prestige is very high, she's one of the best champs to use in this month's event quest, she can do very good in act 5 same with AQ and AW. They're both great champs, fairly strong, though x23 does more damage and with the dupe waaay more damage.
Honestly, I'd go with x23...I have a 5* rogue and I love her, but x23 damage output and regeneration is so amazing.
Ok thank you for the info
LoL, easy path: X-23 (unawakened is fine)
AQ & Act 5: both are amazing, if both are unawakened X-23 is probably a bit better
Bleed/poison/Iceman counter: Rogue
AW: Rogue (X-23 triggers mystic dispersion too much due to regen triggers so she is bad at high levels)
Power Control: Rogue
I agree with everything there, but one thing.
You said, "Honestly she really doesn't gain much from the dupe, it's one of the weaker sig abilities in the game.", her sig ability increases critical rate and critical damage when she has 3 or more bleeds(or if they're bleed immune 3 cruelty buffs) on the opponent. Giving her a lot more damage as it'd mean more critical hits and more critical damage.
I mean, it's better than not having it, sure. It's just with the new flat values after patch 12.0 those little number boosts do a lot less than they used to. 100 or 200 "critical rating" or "critical damage rating" doesn't actually increase her damage output numbers by much. For example even though X-23 gains cruelty stacks vs bleed immune champs I notice her damage drops off a ton because even 4-5 cruelty stacks don't really increase her crits by that much and she loses all her bleed damage which is most of her damage output. So getting a little extra cruelty from her sig is pretty whatever and even then it's only applied for about half of your hits.
I think the best use of her sig is that it will sometimes give you an extra crit and bleed stack which is real damage especially with Deep Wounds. The problem is, this doesn't help you get your first 3 stacks of bleed and she caps out at 5 stacks anyway. So when you're hitting the enemy at 5 stacks you can refresh a bleed but that's less damage than adding a new one at full duration. Its just weirdly limited in what it does and when it does it.
If they removed her cap on 5 bleeds this sig would make a little more sense but I wish they just changed it into something a bit more noticeable. X-23 doesn't need more damage but maybe bleed duration reduction or just something with a little utility
