Alliance War Season Rewards for Season 13 have now been distributed. Compensation for individual Wars will be sent later today (Nov 20). You can leave your alliance and still receive the individual Wars Compensation. We are also investigating an issue with Champions stuck in AQ. At the moment Days 1-4 of Honor Rewards have been paid out, Day 5 and full Rewards are still coming!

What are you supposed to do if you fail to one-shot Heimdal?

So I beat him once for completion and am going through it again for exploration. I get that the strategy is to just block the special 2 right out of the gate and then bait and evade the special 1 for the rest of the fight, but what exactly are you supposed to if you screw up somewhere along the line? My second time doing the map just now, he took forever to use his special 2 and I ended up getting hit a couple times, and then just general bad play after that resulted in a death. No worries, I still have my four other guys, right? But he started the next fight with 3 persistent charges, went straight to his SP3, killed me, started the next fight with 8 charges, and so on. He starts every fight with 2 bars of power and if you can't him the first time he'll go to SP3 within a few seconds. Please spare me the cheap answers of "beat him in 1" or "get good". Is there any actual viable strategy if you screw up the first time?

    Gwenpool. I used Voodoo as well. If you can get him to Bait the L2 before he gets to L3, you're good.

    Vision can power drain him before too if you have the paid one

    paid one? you mean the age of Ultron one or the other one?

    In addition to those already mentioned Dormammu would work because his 2nd medium will drain power.

    Mephisto should work too, soul imprisonment should be able to stop the power gain from triggering and even if it doesn’t his regen means that he can’t die from a single sp3. If it would kill, he lands on 1% health, then regens (cannot take damage during regen) and you’re good to go.
  • 1) Someone who can take an sp3 ie Iceman

    2) Immediate power drain or lock ie Starky

    3) Quit the fight as soon as it starts, Heimdall won't gain charges, he'll lose them (I think).

    4) Bait sp2 fast and aggressively.

    5) Mephisto stops the power gain buff.

    Uh if he killed u with his sp3 he'd be back to baseline the fight after. I sacrificed my SW so I could finish him (uncollected) with og vision (5/50 sig 20 but with class disadvantage) the one time I pushed ronans stun too long.

    Also to add on, duped og vision with 1 power bar to start fight very useful for heimie, hydrabot and fred skull.

    If he has 3 buffs, then he'll only gain 18% power, which is not enough to push him to an sp3. Check his sig ability for how much power he gets (I think it's 6% power per buff), then calculate if it'll push him to an sp3 (if it is over 33%). If it does, then use your worst matchup or a dead champ to take the death and reduce the number. If not, go in and just bait or parry without hitting him at all, because that's probably what you did and probably how he got to an sp3.
