Remove Mesmerise node

This node is literally only designed to get you killed, there's no skill to counter this... Awful node. Cash cow in the highest order


  • I did expert difficulty and got Void with mesmerize and bane, it would have been a pain using someone else, especially since I’m running suicides, but my Agent Venom beat him and shrugged off all debuffs.. but still that’s just cheating putting void on there
  • And at 7%, yeah right, I had the buffs on and me and Void mesmerized each other twice in a row, four straight in a row between us lol, it was funny but ridiculous.
  • I have been doing the trials everyday since it started (expert). Haven't spent a potion. What does it do again?
    Is it the one where you get stunned when evading?

    In any case, the fact that I do not know what the big deal is with this, means that it wasn't designed to kill me. I recommend using the boosts, as you will not be able to use them when this quest is gone. Most of them are useless though, the arc overload one is probably the best.

    Actually there is a skill to counter this. It's called thought. Maybe you should try it.

    Ahhh the 'ol "i can't beat it, so they should remove it" thread. Always someone out there that can't see outside the normal way of fighting to beat nodes.

    Use Quake, or spam SP1 with hyp. AA works well too, big damage for minimum contact.

    Can''t get stunned if you're not hitting them.

    Mordo. Win.

    BPCW is also fun to use.
  • AV, mordo, groot, BPCW, rogue, maxed limber...lots of options stated several times over in several threads. You have to think outside of running through mlllm comboing everything with the same champs you always use.
  • I faced Mordo on this. It was a pain. The rest of them have been easy. It’s a bad design to create nodes like this where this is no counter. They won’t remove it. The only way they seem to be able to make difficult content is to make us take damage we can’t defend against.

    Yeah Only Mordo made this node crazy.. but no problem with other heroes.
    Just dont do full combo... bait to parry and use your Trial Boost
  • BW and CB for that node
  • Neither node is that bad to deal with and play around but together they're a pain in the arse

    Iceman's coldsnap counters mesmerize node
  • Use mordo against the mesmerize node, I used that only in expert node

    OP doesn't care about logic or solutions to beat it. He/she just wants the easy way out instead of getting better.

    I had Groot on mesmerise today, lost 5/50 awakened Voodoo without landing a single hit.
    Rank 4 5* MODOK had no troubles though.
    I guess I was lucky with the procs second time round

    It isn't EASY for everyone and it isn't UNBEATABLE for everyone either.
    I'm a mediocre player I think and I can beat the Expert nodes. I usually have one champ left at the end and I admit that I have all 5 going into the mesmerize node typically. Still it's doable and I am getting better at it.
    You just can't play like normal and swing away....

    Mesmer + Bane is the cheesiest set of nodes of all the days, no doubt, but I've run Master every single day, and other than losing a champ or two, have had no problems beating every map.

    That includes having both Mordo and Void on my last Mesmer day.

    It's cheesy, but by no means insurmountable.

    I drew Yellowjacket and Groot. I used Nightcrawler on my mini account and Mordo on my main account. Nightcrawler actually was very effective against that node.

    I’d be fine with it if not for Mordo... god he’s enough of a pain WITHOUT the bug...
  • Mesmerize node is not that tough if you have limber maxed

    Can someone explain this to me yellowjackets sp1 stun after those debuffs expire can't even last a second against karnak but when this mesmerize node inflicts that short stun it lasts for the full duration against him when he is duped sig 63 and with the mastery that shruggs off stuns faster so how on earth is mesmerize lasting the same time against karnak?
  • 7% chance of stun. Sometimes it feels like a 60% chance of stun and sometimes it actually feels like 7%.
  • It will be easier for some people based on the champions they have. That doesn’t change the fact that this is bad game design. Random, nearly unavoidable damage (except for a few champs) is a terrible idea. It takes away from the skill aspect of the game. I have never seen a game use this much randomness and unavoidable damage. It is no surprise that players get frustrated and come to the forums to complain.

    I have played Memerize nodes where several single hits in a row stunned me. There is nothing I can do about that except get lucky enough to open a champ that can shrug off debuffs or is stun immune. Once again, it’s RNGs instead of skill.
  • If you max out limber that stun wears off fast plenty of time to parry back so you can collect yourself and attack back

    THIS. Max limber is a life saver against mesmerize.

    People need to take their Mordos from defense and use him on offence for once.

    Or just max limber.
