Is Star Lord still worth ranking up and awakening?

Maldroit2Maldroit2 Posts: 739 ★★★
I finally pulled a 4* star lord and I have a spare generic gem. The big question is, given the changing meta of mcoc, the rarity of rank up items, and the rarity of generic awakening gems, is ranking up and awakening star lord good idea? One last thing, I have 2 god tier 4* (stark spidey and Magik)

    Hits hard, rewards good parry/intercept play with stronger attacks and spectacular champ for masochism/buffet nodes as no buffs and only debuffs on SP attacks

    I have him at 5/50 Sig 34. He’s amazing.

    100% no. He's only good for one area of the game and that area now has a bunch of good champs for it.

    He's nice as a boss killer, but if you have Spark then I don't really see the need for him. Especially when you start getting good 5 stars, or even any 6 star. My 6 star Iron Fist hits harder until a 4 star 5/50 Star-Lord sig99 gets to about a 30 hit combo. In other words, that 5/50 SL is useless even when you get bad luck with your 6 star crystal.

    Star-Lord was pretty MVP in Act 5.3 for me though. He doesn't care about the -50% reduced attack.

    If you have starky, he’ll suit you better for now. The point where you’ll need a duped sl (LoL) you’ll have five stars and five star gems

    If you don't have multiple decent 5* at R3 or better, no chance of seeing a 6* in the next 12 months then I would absolutely use the gem.

    Wait how many 4* champs do you have maxed or 5* at R3 or higher? Judging by you saying you have two other elite 4* I'm guessing not too many. Unless you have crazy good luck you're going to run through some bad 5* pulls and are still going to need to max some 4* to get through content until those good 5* come.

    Basically if you don't have top tier 5* champs already SL is absolutely worth ranking and awakening. Out of 17 5* champs I have one great, X23, and two really good, Hela and Yondu. I have 8 or 9 maxed 4* now who still have to do most of my work and 5/50 max sig Starlord is still among the best. I say rank him up and wreck with him unless you have numerous better options at 5*.

    The only 5/50 4 star I have is a unawakened stark spidey. I dont have any r3 5*. I do have a bunch of demi god tier characters at rank 4 however.

    Then depending what you want to get done, and how long you want to wait to do or how many items you want use would decide this for you. If you're pushing to reach uncollected and don't pull any elite 5* then you're going to need to max some 4* champs, and when awakened they don't get much better than Starlord. If you get some top 5* obviously focus on them, but you can't just halt progression until you do. Same reason I've max so many 4*, for AQ, AW and a couple more for rotating and questing.
