So I finally have the T4 tech catalysts I need to take my 4* SL to rank 5, but should I save them in the hope of awakening my 5*?

    Neither unless you need 4* sl to do LOL in the next couple weeks
  • Nah I'm a couple of months off doing a LoL run
  • Very good point actually, didn't think about that, haven't bothered exploring 5.1 yet so I will do one run through it and see if it's doable for me right now

    Tough. I was lucky to have both duped and used a rank down ticket on my 4* and used the cats on my 5*.

    You may never dupe him though
  • That's what I'm concerned about, and as the 5* pool of champs in the basic crystal grows those chances of duping him diminish
  • Appreciate all the comments guys, it's certainly something I need to think about haha

    I would rank up ultron or vision over both sl
  • I'm personally not a huge fan of ultron, he's decent but I never play him, and similarly I never use vision either so would feel like I was wasting the cats on them

    They two of the best immunity champs in the game. Ultron has a reliable regen. Vision can power drain. They are the 2 best 4* techs in my opinion for aq and aw

    Not a chance in hell. Maybe an argument can be made for the 4* but the 5* vs those pillow handed techs, your crazy.

    Just took out 21k hood in front of Dormanu with over 80k health with a 35hit combo. Not doing that with either of them.
  • I can understand those choices if immunity to both is necessary, but I have better options in my opinion in Hyperion and GR for being poison or bleed immune, so for me I want to get the best tools for my eventual LoL run

    But to be honest i would rank ultron or vision before my 4* starlord at this point because i jave the 5*
  • I know what will happen, if I choose 4* then my next crystal I'm guaranteed to dupe the 5*, if I go with the 5* to begin with I will never dupe him, that's the way this thing usually goes isn't it haha

    How far are you from your next 5*

    I have learned to hold unless you need another strong champ to compete
  • I'm sat on roughly 1500 5* shards, so a fair way

    R5 your 4* SL. He's very useful in the game.

    Ultron and vision are only good in aq and aw. Well vision has a little more potential use in other parts of the game because of the power steal. But overall your 4* r5 sl could destroy alot more end game material then both ultron and vision combined.

    An unduped rank 4 5* sl is useless until he's duped. I would use t4cc elsewhere until he gets duped
  • Deadbyrd9Deadbyrd9 Posts: 3,461 ★★★★
    Read that post backwards haha. I use my 4* 4/40 to clear endgame content. He just does a little less damage. I'm only taking mine to 5/50 for LOL otherwise he would never see 5/50

    His awakened ability is the only reason he's any good. Until you can dupe him as a 5*, which could take a long time, go with the duped 4*.

    Star Lord might be faster, but Vision is safer. Hood is nothing special if he has no power. Vision AoU can keep Hood from getting to special 2. I now use OG Vision and Hood doesn't even get to use special 1. At that point, Hood is a target dummy.

    Nothing against Star Lord but I'm willing to wait and see if I get especially lucky and pull a 5* SL; I decided to upgrade OG Vision to 5/50 over 4* Star Lord (currently at 4/40) precisely because OG Vision is an AQ/AW monster in a way Star Lord wouldn't be for me (I upgraded Vision AoU to 5/50 before I ever had a 4* SL to compete).

    This is probably the best advice. When it comes to higher tier resources which are not easy to get, I only spend them on champs I'm going to use right now. If I'm going to use them tomorrow, I wait (exaggeration: when I decide I want to start using a champ for a specific purpose, I try to wait for double rank-up events to be running if I can).

    How long do you think it's worth waiting? Cause it could easily take a year or two or never
