What's the deal with Mephisto in Uncollected monthly?

Okay, I'm not great but not terrible. I just can't beat Mephisto in Uncollected monthly event. I've watched all of the videos, use the champs they recommend, just can't beat him. Tons of potions, about 1,000 units, all wasted. Nameless Thanos wasn't this difficult and I had weaker champs then. If it matters I'm using r4 5* IMIW, Cap'n Murca, Ice Man, Hyperion, and a maxed 4* Void and Blade. I couldn't even use Void, he gets KO'd in less than 2 seconds. Is anyone else having this hard of a time? Spare me the got gud andvbfag responses please. I know there are guys a lot better than me, but I'm not terrible. Thanks!

    If you want to post a video of one of your attempts it would be easier to offer specific advice. As long as you avoid him when he has his aura and bait the SP1 it's a pretty straightforward fight. I beat him with Domino, CAIW, and Blade depending on who was available.

    Anything specific that is giving you trouble? I had a 3/45 void I used to do decent amount of damage but my blade with sparky synergy made it the easiest for me. I also used an iceman one fight but it took forever. Just bait out his sp1 and if he gets his aura just be patient and let them do their thing before going back in. No means did I 1 shot him everytime. I had a few learning curves first time after that he was pretty manageable.

    Mephisto is a very straight forward fight, you have plenty of counters for him and just need to avoid his aura and keep baiting his sp1. Blade is a great matchup with the GR+Sparky synergy for the extra danger sense potency. Cap IW will also work as well.

    I used blade also. And human torch 5/65 with flame on. Never really had an issue.

    a 4/40 void does the trick. HERE'S THE BIGGEST THING: DON'T HIT HIM WHEN AURA OF INCINERATION IS ACTIVE, even if you're immune - this feeds his power gain, and will spike him to 3 bars before you know it. Void is ideal as you can just hang back, dance a little, let the intimidating presence debuffs do their thing and avoid sp1s. it's real easy...

    You clearly haven’t tried human torch with flame on.
  • Quake shuts him down, might take a revive or 2

    Quake him did it with 4* 5/50 quake no portions used very easy or you can also do human torch

    She Hulk did it easy for me?

    Cap iw crushes. Just parry heavy

    Quake washes the floor with him

    I got 1-shots with Blade, Quake, and Rulk...nothing out of the ordinary here. As others said, avoid the aura, bait the special 1, easy life.
  • Tony886Tony886 Posts: 535 ★★
    Even 4* star void can defeat him
    I have done it

    Mephisto was horrible for me when he was first released 2 years ago and we did not even have UC level back then so I totally understand. However nowadays there are sooo many great counters against him that would turn this fight into a simple one.

    First of all you need to be super patient if you do not plan to use any of the counters I suggest below. The Footloose node is just there to prevent you from countering the sp1 so just be patient until the timer goes away. Also when he procs the Aura, try to dash back or parry and heavy so that u get some space to avoid the aura damage, which is ur typical Mephisto encounter.

    I personally used my 3/45 unduped Human Torch, saved his persistent charge until Mephisto and burnt him down, my record is 107 smoulder passives if I am not mistaken lol. I do believe that a skilled player can take Mephisto with HT as a maxed out 3 star cuz he is such a great counter and Mephisto keeps feeding HT more damage potential.

    Other great options that come to mind are:

    Quake, she is perfect for most Mephisto matchups
    Void, one of the best counters with the incinerate immunity
    Iceman, the only champ who had incinerate immunity back in the day when Mephisto, would be a very long fight tho
    Gulk, he triggers face me when the aura activates so no need to worry about the aura damage watch out for sp3
    Ghost with Hood synergy, hit him, phase immediately and hit again after the miss, rinse and repeat, can tank the sp3
    Duped Rulk, incinerate damage resistance helps
    Havok, incinerate immune and can mitigate the healing with the plasma debuffs and despair mastery, insane damage
    Mephisto himself is a good counter as well, another long matchup as well though
    Maybe CapIw with some synergies to mitigate the healing and more damage but he would do well even without the dupe, just parry and heavy even when he has the footloose active you can nullify the unstoppable
    Finally BW Claire Voyant in her incinerate immune phase, she can also give buff immunity on Mephisto to negate footloose entirely.

    These are the counters that popped in my head, I hope it will be helpful. Sorry for the long post!

    I mainly used Blade but I did do it with a rank 3 unawakened 5* void and an unawakened rank 4 5* modok when I had Blade in AQ

    Human Torch with flame on literally burns the devil himself. Those power stings make the fight easier too.

    I pulled a 6* HT but I must be using him wrong.
    The one time I tried all his incinerates just feed Mephisto power

    Mephisto gains power from incinerate, you need to either activate the preflight turing all his incinerates into novaflames, or ship until a sp3 to do the same.

    At the character select screen before the fight, click on HT and activate his ability. It can only be used once per quest, so save it for Meph.

    if unduped, if he is duped you can potentially use it more.

    Thanks. Typically I find this out after I've already explored uncollected and master
