Who to 5/65 and awaken? Stark or GP

After a few more runs in 5.4 I'll have enough to take one to r5 and awaken.

My next priority after this is LoL. Who would you r5 and who would you awaken?

I use Spark more but GP more useful when awakened. Any ideas?

    if you watch "contest of champions"(BG) Gwenpool is no where near there level. He says there is a level above god tier. Blade, stark enhanced spiderman, Ghost rider are above God tier..........

    Tough choice. Do you have GR or Blade? Do you intend to get them? Do you use them a lot? If the answer is yes, then maybe Spark. He also benefits from any additional rank up because of his low health pool.

    if not, then maybe GP. She has great utility.

    In the end though, you have to rank who you love playing more and who you will use a lot.

    Neither is a bad choice, but if prestige doesn’t matter too much, I’d do stark spidey over GP any day.

    Pains me to say Gwenpool...Stark Spidey is just too perfect for LoL.

    Stark for 5/65, but awaken GP or wait on your gem. He would be boss at that level for LOL even unduped.
  • Starky No question. And also awaken him if you are R5ing him. The crit rate he gains when awakened is Super High. Not needed but really good to have.

    @Tempest no don't have 5* blade or GR (only GR 4*) saving shards for blade re-run

    Thanks all, I'm leaning towards ranking up spark and holding off awakening - would be great if got either tech or skill class gem so could save general AG

    well don't forget you get an AG crystal to go with the generic for the end of act 5

    Sparky's prestige is kind of low -- if you care about that, GP wins. (Folks may laugh at this choice, but I ranked up Angela instead of either just 'cause I like playing her. Her prestige is between Sparky and GP, 8518 at sig 50. I think she's a slightly worse choice than either, but I'd rather not have the same profile as everyone else and she is awesomeness at 5/65.)

    GP does have ability reduction, so if you don't have another 4/55 with that then it'd be a harder decision. She's a little worse for DPS in long fights (I think based on LoL takedowns vs RH); her power control is limited to champs who can bleed ... I think I'd prefer Sparky's heavy. She doesn't require Blade to have higher starting DPS ... I"d go with the one you like playing, both are quite good. But if you have GR and Blade, and like using them, that'd argue for Sparky.

    GPs sig is not that good mate tbh. You dont die from a s3, but die seconds later anyway as your health is so low. And if you can get a combo of 50+ then it can be useful. Most cant

    Spark all the way

    Except a awakened gp sig 1 at 5/65 matched with a 4/55 starky for LoL runs would be extremely helpful. And would hit the 50 hit combo easily

    The reduction in special damage is much less interesting to me than the ability accuracy reduction. Though I don't think it applies to all abilities (at least it didn't seem to in my tests).

    (has synergies minor buffs and class advantage)
    (I'd say Sparky wins narrowly in this competition)

    I should try making a video with Angela; would be fun, though I think it'll be a bit slower.

    I didn’t say which one at rank 5 would be best. Merely said a r4 5* starky with a r5 gp awakened would be a pretty good.

    Ah. Yes, GP would be great for everything vulnerable to bleed, and Sparky would be goodfor others. I don't know how GP does vs Maestro, but I'd guess it's like facing bleed-immune.

    R5 Spark for general fights, awaken GP so she can handle Spidey and Electro, then awaken Spark once you’ve 100%’d LoL
  • JJ4302JJ4302 Posts: 47
    I decided to r5 spark for LoL and used generic AG - he is awesome and hits so hard, really happy with my decision. I pulled a skill AG so will try for blade and if I don't get him will awaken GP. Thanks for your help guys

    Spark is a more viable option for most LOL fights

    is ghost rider really above god tier? am i not using him right? i know hes really good but i dont know about above god tier
  • JJ4302JJ4302 Posts: 47
    Bleed immune, bleed, fury, fate seal, power drain, regen and damnation - yup. Plus with Blade he is certain to place judgements

    ik all that, i have him r4 4* and r2 5*. Quite decent at using him, however im not able to use him well on long hard quests(e.g RoL). he is useful in act 5, but i gauge god tier by the speed at which they can cut down the opponents health on long fights. ghost rider is a great champion, dont get me wrong, but he takes to long to win some fights.
    update: forgot to mention that i also judge them by the ability to not activate opponents specials(power control)(e.g vision and magik)

    I have as 5*s: Angela, Magik, Hyperion, Gwen Pool, Sparky (stark-enhanced spidey), Star Lord, and Hela -- along with lots of others (unawakened DV would be a plausible choice). If I'd had a 5* Ghost Rider, I'd have been very tempted to make him r5 rather than Angela; certainly he'd be r4.

    I'd guess GR isn't as good for LoL because his DPS isn't as high as some of the others (at least that's how it seems) -- so it'd have been a bit of a difficult decision; I wanted someone to run most paths for exploration. But based on playing with my 4* (along with 4* blade and 5* sparky) -- there's a lot of content he does well, and I'd love him as a 5*.

    Thanks for all your helps guys - just completed LoL 1st run with Spark - he was awesome. Here's my run through: https://www.reddit.com/r/ContestOfChampions/comments/7po8kx/lol_easy_path_clear_with_spark_565/?ref=share&ref_source=link
