My 5* are all trash
My Top 6:
4* Spider-Man(Stark Enhanced)(*5/50)
4* Blade(*5/50)
4* Ghost Rider(*5/50)
4* Hulk(*5/50)
4*ArchAngel(*5/50)
4*Iceman(*5/50)


Current Progression completed:
Road to Labyrinth 4.2 complete
Act 4 100%
Act 5, Chapter 1.1 complete

Who Should I rank next to 5/50?
4*/40 Dr. Voodoo (Signature lvl 21)
4*/40 Magik (Signature lvl 20)
4*/40 Scarlet Witch (Signature lvl 43)

from preliminary advice/videos... Magik looks like a decent option for Road to Labyrinth 4.3 ...

I have 20x Mystic Signature Stones and 45x Generic Signature Stones.... if that would sway the decision a bit by increasing Scarlet Witch's trigger rate... or if it would help either of the other two (I am quite novice in playing these three, so any all strategy and help would be greatly appreciated).

Thank you in advance!

    would Road to Labyrinth be easier with Scarlet Witch vs. Magic? ... And Act 5? ... Any ideas why Dr. Voodoo is so appealing/popular (just higher prestige?)

    4*/40 Dr. Voodoo (Signature lvl 21)
    full disclosure, i’ve had duped sw sitting at 3/30 for months, so i can’t say she isn’t worth it because i haven't used her other than arena. but, voodoo is so good for many functions, and magik is so good for power control or defense. voodoo’s sp1 does crazy damage on any opponent that get lots of buff (magik also does good damage on the same opponents with her sp3), voodoo has very good power control with good subsequent damage if you get his sp2 off in an even combo, and he has very good ability reduction if you throw a special on an odd combo. he also has very useful regen at the beginning of every fight, which is automatic, so you don’t have to worry about getting it to proc. i have a bunch of good 5* but i still use my 4* voodoo for aq because of his regen. it’s huge.

    edit: i just realized you have comlpeted rttl 4.2 but not more (i thought you were completely done with it). with that in mind, i might say magik, because there is a bunch of rttl where power control is essential, especially on ‘spite’ nodes, and magik is better for power control (possibly the best in the game).

    Look i got all 3 of em and magik and SW unduped sitting on r4 untill last level up event, i duped 99 and ranked 5 voodoo long time ago and the guy is pure legend in AQ but i used my generic on SW simply because i was fascinated by 3* and at r5 4* she is mother load of crazy, im currently doing uncollected with her and thinking of taking her to AQ alongside voodoo and ultron as usual.

    For Voodoo's odd/even combo.... does that mean you initiate the special on an even number (3 hits then special) in order to trigger the even... or initiate the special after an even combo (2 hits then special) to trigger the even?
    @Lovingkid & @zero7 (above question) ... or anyone who uses Voodoo

    For Act 5, RTLL, and uncollected stuff.... who would you guys take along with you? (considering my roster above, synergies, etc.)
    I was leaning toward Spark/Blade/GR + [AA or Iceman or Hulk] + (Voodoo/Magik/S.Witch)... I also have a 4/40 Thor (but waiting for a better cosmic)

    if your combo meter is 3 when you use special, it triggers the odd combo (brother daniel goes to opponent for ability reduction), and if your combo meter is 4 when you use special, it triggers the even combo (brother daniel goes to voodoo), it’s a little tricky to pay attention to the fight (parry, intercepting, etc) and still count the combo, but you get used to it, then it’s pretty easy. arni is a youtuber who is really good with voodoo with good narration. i’ll try to find a video of his that would be useful.

    for act 5, rttl, uncollected, it depends on which quest/nodes you are on, but i can say that my 5/50 magik was on almost every team in act 5, unless poison/bleed were inflicted. with magik, if you can power lock them in the corner, you can just dominate the fight. aside from that, blade/stark/gr is pretty much the perfect team. congrats on the great champs!

    Votes are split pretty evenly (preliminarily)... I guess this echoes my contemplation.
    Each has merit, I am trying to get an idea where I'm at in progression, but also what is better in the long run. I have nearly enough for two rank-ups (but missing a T4CC).

    How is health / damage output among the three? ...
    How reliable is power control with Voodoo once you get the hang of him?
    Beyond Nullify... how is the utility of S.Witch's random buffs?... I've heard of regen procs, etc. but in actual gameplay at my content level, how effective is she?

    4*/40 Magik (Signature lvl 20)
    I think you should go for Magik because you don't have any good power control champ in your team. And Magik is the best power control champ.
  • SevSynSevSyn Posts: 31
    Still a split poll...

    I understand power-control as an essential tool for progression...

    what are the perks of Voodoo?

    S.Witch: main selling point is potential to do massive damage randomly?

    I found Magik to be the most helpful champ in RTTL mainly due to all the spite. Can’t go wrong with any of the three really, but for your roster I’d recommend Magik as she has the greatest and most consistent power control.

    I have all 3. VooDoo and Magik @ 5/50 sig 99. SW as 4/40 arena fodder. I rarely use Magik or SW offensively or for questing. VooDoo is superior in every way, including power control. Sure Magik has power lock, but it’s temporary. With VooDoo you can deny any opponent power for the entire fight, after using his SP2 on an even combo, of course. Even or odd means the number your counter is on when you fire the special. So you start the fight, get to 10 hits, and fire your SP1, that would be an even combo because you fired your special after the 10th hit. If you get hit it resets, so you never even have to keep count. Just glance at your combo meter.

    Want to deny your opponent’s ability, like Limbo, evade, unstoppable, or regen? Use any special on an odd combo.

    Plus he can do crazy poison damage with his SP1 and has amazing guaranteed regen at the start of every fight. Poison immune? No problem, just use his SP2 (on even combo) to keep them from gaining power. Every hit after using his SP2 does additional damage as well.

    I’ve used VooDoo for all content in the game. I cleared RTTL and ROL before I had a single 5/50. VooDoo and Wolvie are my only 5/50s now because I’m hoarding T4CCs for 5* champs, even though I can never pull a good enough one to rank up. VooDoo was my primary workhorse through all of chapter 5 as well, but I did have him at R5 for that, but the rest of my roster was all 4/40s.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!

    excellent advice on all fronts (as always)!
    I was nearly at the point to bring 2 of the 3 up to 5/50....

    I chose Magik for the power-control reliability / consistency in order to help me mow-down current content.
    Since rank-up, I was able to finish RTTL, and Act 5.1.2 - Act 5.2.2.

    I am not sure my roster can carry me through the remainder of Act 5.2 - 5.4 ... and my luck has been horrible on the 5* front....

    I pull 12 5*s lifetime: (Luke Cage, Spider-Gwen, Ant-Man, Howard the Duck, Iron Fist, Gambit, Ronan(x2), Black Panther(O.G), Nightcrawler, Drax, & X-23).

    I have no great option for cosmic (my best is 4/40 Thor, 3/30 Hela).

    I have been quite lucky so far in the 4* realm, but progression-wise... not sure if I should bother bringing up more 5/50 4*s, or keep holding out for a useful 5* worthy of rank-ups.

    With the pending 6* climate... I am already thinking my roster is soon to be irrelevant for the coming content.

    That said, my skill level is still below my roster strength... I'll need to play a lot more to get the timing and quirks down of all the opponents I'll face... so far, my roster has allowed me to play lazily.

    Yet now that I am in Act 5, Chapter 2 ... I see that I really need to step-up my skill level more than my roster.

    Thank you all for the phenomenal advice... I'm thinking using Dr. Voodoo as my next 5/50 until I can pull a useful 5*.

    damn, nice progress to finish rttl 4.3-4.6, and to become uncollected in that short time! i think you made a good choice :)

    I dont have Voodoo, but I know he is awesome. I voted for SW because I have her and love using her. She has some of everything and that is why I love her. Even though he effects trigger randomly she triggers effects often: power steal, power lock, power drain, poison, weakness, fury, cruelty, health regen. I also love her Nullify ability that helps a lot with champs triggering buffs. And her L2 is awesome in dealing damage! I regularly get over 20k with it. I think she is decent even at a low sig level, but some disagree on that! You can always use the sig stones for her if you want to improve her.

    Honestly you can't go wrong with your 3 options. Just go with whoever you like the best!

    Oh, I still have a bit to go prior to uncollected... I'm only half-way through Act 5.2.
    but yes, I was able to bulldoze RTTL after your suggestions.

    It seems my luck with 5*s is so terrible.... I'll likely be relegated to 4* level gameplay for the majority of the forseeable future. So, once I stack-up some T4CCs in mystic, I'll eventually have all 4 (Ghost, Magik, Voodoo, S.Witch).

    I used voodoo and Magik in act 5 and Magik in rttl, both are great Champions but I think voodoo is a better option for act 5 while Magik is better for rttl.

    Edit: just saw you don't have a reliable power drain at rank 5 so go with Magik.


  • 4*/40 Scarlet Witch (Signature lvl 43)
    Scarlet Witch isn’t available as 5*. That’s why you should rank her to 5. I have 4* voodoo/magik and hoarding 3 mystic t4cc only for SW. All other good mystic have 5* version except SW. Same goes with Vision/Wolverine. If you have any of those 3, max them up to 5.
