**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.

**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

    Even with fury stacks, he dont hit tat strong. He is ok though if u armor stack and use those furies well.

    His regen is ok. But turns out rlly good once u dupe him over 100.

    He is one of the under-appreciated champ, just like Beast, Spider Gwen, Angela, etc. He is better than he looks :)

    He is above-average, very good utility with regen (cool down) and bleed immune, BUT he needs to be dupped, and 4* version may have very low damage output ... various usages for AQ, AW attack, Story Quest, etc

    Still he is decent champ, worth putting effort & resource. I just got him from Basic 4* arena grinding (I did 2.96M), and I'll grind one more round tomorrow to get him to dup, then I'll bring him to R3 like I did to all my 4* champs for arena roaster purpose, most likely won't bring him to R4 or beyond. However if I get a 5* dupped KG I'll probably invest resources to rank the 5* dupped one to R3

    Plenty of experts provided very insightful feedback about King Groot at this thread:-

    He's in the top 5 in cosmics easy. Consistent Regen. his low attack makes up for one of the most massive regens in the game. A lot of people hate him because his fights take forever, but I've cleared master modes paths with him and remains at full health. At 4/40 he can one shot ROL (except Switch and wolverine).

    I think he gets an extremely low rap for having pillow hands. But he's not intended to have great attack. He's intended to have amazing sustainability. And there isn't many who's better for that. Wolverine you need to land a crit proc, ghost rider you need to land a heavy, but with King Groot, all you have to do is wait. Easy

    Is he worth R4 duped?

    How many stones does he need for the regen to be decent?

    For first instance you wont like him.. but if his dupe level cross 60, hes pure beast as a utility. Absolutely worth for 5star rank 4 (*** must be duped with sig 60+ ****). He will save alot of health potions for bigger fights. I use him to clear all the paths in Story & AW with full health most of time. He might hit soft but compensates with amazing healing & 30k health. Mine is level 70+ & regens 113 health twice per sec. Funny thing i used Cosmic awakening on him & was disappointed for couple of weeks... but slowly i realized his potential & now i feel proud on awakeing him. Thought in mind i will Rank5 him as well.

    Being good doesn't make King Groot hit any harder. 😆😂

    He's an annoying **** on defense on some nodes.

    Put an r4 KG on node 24 in Tier 1 and even an r5 Blade can't do anything to him without his GR Synergy.

    I have KG at every tier and he's definitley better awakened but his attack is just too low, even if you manage to stack up tons of furies

    I got him as my first 6 star. He's dog ****. He's useless in wars due to his rapid gaining and dropping of buffs and being cosmic, and his damage output is below most of my 4 stars. If his poison was on par with 6 star Deadpools bleed? ehh maybe, but I wish I could sell him honestly.

    Highest health in the game and reliable Regen if he’s duped

    He's not better than Medusa, Hela, Hyperion, Angelao or Thor/Drax.

    Any champ can do that, that's not an achievement. ROL is basically just longer arena fights.

    I have a 5* R4 wish his attack was better. Currently his base attack is lower than some of my 4*s. Kabam can you give KG some love. Thanks

    I have him as a six star and he's terrible. I am not sure how people are saying he is great.

    Hyperion and Medusa are far superior cosmics. Cap Marvel, Drax, Hela, and even Ronan are better.

    My six star rarely gets a kill in aw. I am lucky enough to have him as a five star too.. thanks kabam... I will keep sitting on this comsic gem that I have had for about a year now.

    I think he needs to be duped with a high sig level, that is when he becomes decent in AW
