Basic Abilities: Prowess, True Accuracy, Safeguard, Heal Block

Missions from Thanos
-Proxima Midnight has 3 missions to accomplish and those are granted in random order.
-Mission 1: Parry Offense: Perform 6 well timed blocks.
-Mission 2: Intercept Attack: Perform 4 intercepts against a dashing opponent.
-Mission 3: Incapacitate: Knockdown the opponent 5 times using a Heavy or Special Attack.
-When Proxima completes an objective on one of her missions, she gains True Accuracy for 5 seconds, allowing her to ignore Auto Block and all Evade effects.
-Whenever completing a mission, she gains a Prowess Buff, increasing Special Damage by 250% for 10 seconds. When the temporary Prowess Buff expires, Proxima receives her next mission and gains permanent Prowess, enhancing Special Damage by 200% for the rest of the fight.

Developer Note: Proxima Midnight is designed to be great in long fights, while having spikes of damage temporarily. When players get 4 Prowess and 4 Fury Buffs, her damage output will be one of the highest in the game, making her a really good option for Labyrinth of Legends.

When Attacked
-If Proxima has more than 30 hits in her Combo Meter, she can activate a Safeguard Buff when attacked by a projectile, preventing her from losing more than 3% of her max Health from a single source for 4 seconds.

Developer Note: Great versus Yondu and Green Goblin!


Blocking
-Opponent’s have 200% Offensive Ability Accuracy reduction when Proxima Midnight blocks an attack. Additionally, she can use the Parry Mastery against any basic attack, stunning opponents even if their attack is projectile based.

Developer Note: Yondu won’t be able to inflict his Bleed through Proxima Midnight’s Block!


Special 1: Trapped Sun - Proxima Midnight strikes the opponent with the force of a trapped sun.
-+2128 Attack Rating if the opponent has an active Regeneration Buff or Passive.
-Inflicts Heal Block, preventing the target from recovering Health for 7 seconds. If Proxima has more than 50 hits in her Combo Meter, the duration of this Heal Block is doubled.

Developer Note: Her Special 1 Attack is a great option against Champions that are constantly regenerating Health, like Green Goblin and Wolverine.

Special 2: Multi-Arcing Strike - Proxima Midnight launches a lethal multi-arcing energy strike with her spear.
-100% chance to Stun opponents for 2 seconds.

Special 3: Black Light Brutality - Transforming her spear into a lance of multi-arcing energy, Proxima immobilizes the opponent with a blast of black light to the back, then exterminates them with a close-range strike.
-100% chance to Stun opponents for 6 seconds.
-100% chance to Armor Break, removing an enemy Armor Up and applying 2000 Armor Rating reduction for 6 seconds.

Signature Ability: Ultimate Mission
Extinguish All Hope
-Reach 100 hits on the Combo Meter. When this mission is complete, she gains a Fury Buff for every mission completed at that time, each increasing her Attack Rating by 182-607 for the rest of the fight.
-When completing this mission, Proxima Midnight activates a permanent True Accuracy passive effect.

Synergy Bonuses:

Unmerciful Punishment with Nebula (Unique)
-Proxima Midnight: When True Accuracy is active, her Attack Rating is increased by 15%.
-Nebula: Starts the fight with 10 Electroshock Charges.

Asgardian Hunt with Thor (Ragnarok) (Unique)
-Proxima Midnight: Gains Combo Shield whenever she has less than 50 hits in her Combo Meter.
-Thor (Ragnarok): Activation of Boon of the Gods requires 10 less hits on the Combo Meter and 5 less hits whenever struck.

Special Assist with Corvus Glaive (Unique)
-Proxima Midnight: Ultimate Mission’s Combo Meter requirement goes down to 75 hits.

Developer Note: Her Asgardian Hunt and Special Assist synergies will allow players to get more hits in the Combo Meter and also activate her Signature Ability earlier in the fight. Those are great for players who can’t consistently get to 100 hits in their Combo Meter, while also helping advanced players if they make a mistake.

Infinity Enemies with Doctor Strange, Scarlet Witch, Vision (Age of Ultron), and Hulk (Ragnarok)
-All Champions gain +6% Attack.

Recommended Masteries:

Glass Cannon, Recoil
-Glass Cannon and Recoil are Attack Rating bonuses, and this synergizes really well with the big Prowess bonuses Proxima Midnight is able to get when completing her missions.

Petrify and Pacify
-Proxima’s Special 2 and Special 3 Attack inflict very potent Stuns. Having Petrify and Pacify will reduce their Ability Accuracy while also reducing her opponent’s Health and Power gains.

Enhanced Fury
-Her Signature Ability, Ultimate Mission, provides very potent Fury bonuses. Enhanced Fury at max level will grant her a 8% stronger Fury effects.

Strong Match-Ups:

Black Widow, Black Panther (Civil War)
-Proxima Midnight reduces her opponent’s Ability Accuracy when she blocks an attack. This means players will be able to Parry Black Widow’s attacks and Black Panther (Civil War) won’t be able to Reflect her Parry Stun.

Green Goblin, Yondu
-Proxima Midnight is able to Parry any Basic Attacks, enabling her to Parry Yondu’s Arrow attacks. She also has a Safeguard Buff when her Combo Meter is above 30 hits and when an opponent uses a projectile attack, making her an excellent Champion when going against Green Goblin’s and Yondu’s Special Attacks.

Wolverine, Green Goblin, Ultron
-Proxima Midnight’s Special 1 Attack is very effective against opponents that are regenerating Health through their Buffs and Passive effects. A huge Attack Rating increase and a long Heal Block also allows her to be extremely effective in Alliance Wars against opponents that benefit from the Willpower Mastery.

Spider-Man, Nightcrawler, M.O.D.O.K.
-When using her spear, Proxima Midnight hardly misses an attack thanks to her True Strike effect when completing her objectives, enabling her to be a great counter to Champions that use Evade or Auto-Block

Weak Match-Ups:

Doctor Strange, Scarlet Witch
-Proxima Midnight’s main source of damage are her permanent Prowess and Fury Buffs. Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch can easily nullify those Buffs, making her vulnerable to those Champions.

Loki, Rogue
-Those two Champions can potentially steal Proxima’s Prowess and Fury Buffs and use them in a devastating attack.

    She can parry yondu basic attack, which is a projectile. Pretty much it.
    Additionally she reduces enemy offensive ability by 200%

    -When Proxima completes an objective on one of her missions, she gains True Accuracy for 5 seconds, allowing her to ignore Auto Block and all Evade effects.

    Am I right to assume that each parry or heavy is considered an objective, so True Accuracy would apply after each of these?

    Will she only get three missions, and no more? In other words, after completing each one, do they keep recycling and you’ll always have one of those missions to do?

    Can the permanent Prowess that she gets from completing a mission and after the expiration of the 10 seconds Prowess buff, be stacked?
    If it can be stacked, then why does it says "when players get 4 Prowess and 4 Fury buffs" when in fact, she can only gains 3 Prowess because she has only 3 Mission to do?

    You're forgetting that her dupe also counts as a mission, so when she reaches 100 combo it will also add another prowess. Considering the spotlight mentions multiple prowess then it's safe to assume that it stacks

    My thought is that the 100 hit combo is the 4th mission

    They are counting the 4th mission she gets from her sig ability.

    Correct, her Signature Ability will give her the fourth mission. On top of giving her another way to get Prowess, this is also where she gets her Fury buffs.

    So can her missions keep cycling/repeating as he fight goes on?
  • All good info, I'll bookmark this page for when I acquire her 5 star in 3 or 4 years lol.

    Seriously though, she does sound intriguing. I also like the way these unique synergies are subtly adding a bit more strategy to the game.

    Proxima's special 1 will have +2128 attack rating to anyone who has willpower that is active right?
  • NguyenDauNguyenDau Posts: 190
    Let me get this straigth

    So each completed Mission she stack her Fury and Prowess buff total stack 4 times ?
    So basicly after complete 4 mission she gain. 200% x 4 times = 800% permanent speical att bonus
    and attack rating 182 - 607 x 4 times = increase att 728 - 2428.

    And top of that she also increase dmg output 2128 for those champs WHO have a aktive or passive reg buff like Willpower ?


  • bloodyCainbloodyCain Posts: 236
    Can you @Kabam Zibiit and your colleagues respond to our questions ASAP? I wanna plan my schedule to either go for her in 5* arena or not. It's an utmost priority right now.

    What's the difference between true accuracy and true strike?
  • bloodyCainbloodyCain Posts: 236
    Dear @Kabam Zibiit @Kabam Miike,

    This year, Proxima is a unique champion that intrigues me the most. Here are my other several questions on Proxima:
    1) Will she get the extra attack rating from her SP1 against someone that has Salve masteries activated too? As far as I know, that's a passive regen.
    2) If she gains a permanent True Accuracy, will that help to negate the Evasion chance in Labyrinth of Legend? At this point, I heard that nothing can stop the Evasion in there even with a champion that has True Strike buff on.

    Good questions, and I would like them answered by a mod, too. But I don’t believe Salve or WP counts as a “regen” passive or otherwise. I say this because Yondu’s SP1 heal block doesn’t double against champs with these masteries active, but it does double against regen buffs and regen passives like GG.

    Does the unique synergy have any benefit for Corvus glaive? There’s only the one for Proxima.
  • So can her missions keep cycling/repeating as he fight goes on?

    Nope, she can only do each mission once but she does retain their benefits for the rest of the fight.

    True Accuracy allows a Champion to ignore Auto Block and all Evade effects. True Strike allows a Champion to ignore those as well, but also allows them to ignore Armor and Resistances.

    Correct, Willpower would activate the attack rating bonus on her special 1. The healing from Salve would not though.

    True accuracy allows them to ignore ALL evade effects. Does this include the one in the labyrinth? Or is it not quite ALL evades?

    Healing from salve. Come on. That is not even called healing. How about an update to salve mastery? That would be fantastic!

    Her SP3 (4 furies, 4 prowess) takes ROL wolvie from 100% to.......

    K . O . !

    Proxima Midnight God Tier confirmed.
  • cap her damage to 100K like what you did to Loki, or give back what Loki can do with that Hela synergy

    Her damage is cap at 50k in the labyrinth regardless, which is pretty much the content that would made Loki a little too OP.

    Thanks! I have another question,

    "When Proxima completes an objective on one of her missions, she gains True Accuracy for 5 seconds, allowing her to ignore Auto Block and all Evade effects."

    After 6th parry, succeeding parries will not trigger true strike anymore right?
