Medusa vs Scarlet Witch

I’ll soon be ready to awaken one of these 4*s with a generic... So considering the following:
- Will be starting Act 5 and legends quests next
- only 3 generic Sig stones (no extra class sigs for SW, but 28 extra class sigs for Medusa)
- Medusa can be taken to R5 now, but SW only R4 (will take a long time to r5)
- Also have 4* Black Bolt duped R4 to get Medusa synergy

Who do I go with? Thanks in advance!

    Yea based on all the context you provided Medusa is definitely the pick. If you can R5 her now and Scarlet is a long while away max her, awaken her, wreck it with her.

    Is it worth using all of the class sigs on Medusa as well? Or is she good enough just being awakened?

    Medusa does not need a high sig level, simply being awakened is enough for her. A higher sig level only increases her chance to autoblock.

    I disagree that SW needs a high sig level to be good. Being awakened does make her awesome, but unlike Medusa, she does gain quite a bit with a higher sig level.

    My logic for this is and will always be, Medusa has a 5 star version, SW doesn’t, therefore because of the exclusivity of SW, I’d awaken her, but Medusa at a low sig will help more than SW at a low sig

    While I agree with your point, the op does not seem to be at the level to have the 5* version right now. I would recommend ranking up Medusa to help him at this point in the game.

    I had my 4* SW at R5 with me for a long long time, I liked her very much even after post v12.0 nerf and even when was unawakened, but of course once awakened I immediately sig99 her and she continue to wreak havoc till this day (again, despite v12.0 nerf, of course I prefer the original pre-v12 SW for sure). Since there's no 5* SW or 6* SW, I still treasure my 4* max SW and continue to use her regularly.

    On the other hand, I have both 4* Medusa (R5/50) and 5* Medusa (R3, planning to R4 her soon as I have the resources and may not want to wait for hyperion anymore), she is definitely awesome for attack even when undupped (but better for AWD defence once dupped for mini boss or boss)

    Since you can R5 your medusa, probably should go with her, she doesn't really need to be awakened for attacking purpose. If necessary you can bring along the Inhuman Synergy to help her. You can still save the awakening gem for SW and some sig stone for SW too. Good luck.

    medusa is definitely better, she is useful without a high sig level

    Huge thanks! I’m mostly focused on attacking for the next stages, so having said that, I’m considering ranking up Medusa to R5 instead of awakening her for the time being. Am I wrong? Will her 6 furies be worth the awakening if my focus isn’t for her AWD and the auto block?
