Sabretooth and Lines in the Sand

SpideyFunkoSpideyFunko Posts: 13,674 ★★★★★
So, I was looking through some synergies for my five star Sabretooth because I was curious, and I noticed a synergy with Killmonger and BPCW that says as follows:

Inflicting a debuff reduces the opponent’s Ability Accuracy by 100% for 0.7 seconds.
Now, unless I’m mistaken, (which I very well might be) that would mean I could parry with Sabretooth without people healing from Masochism.

So my question is, is Sabretooth worth a r3 (and maybe an r4) for Masochism and above?

If you say yes, I’d like to hear your advice on how to play Sabretooth properly.

    That synergy does counter Masochism ST is also R4 worthy IMO, R5 if you’ve got a deeper roster and would be running some of the synergy partners he’s got anyway.

    Sabertooth is one of the best Masochism counters out there, you aren't mistaken. Great assesment! An R3 would do, honestly. But Sabertooth definetly deserves R4 (maybe even R5) for later content.

    Play Sabertooth as you normally would in any other match-up. He doesn't require a specific playstyle to counter Masochism. I'm not sure but someone on the forums had an amazing Sabertooth guide, you can find it using the search bar (I'm not able to find it for some reason).

    I definitely would like to r5 him, but I think Quake will be my first r5. Thanks for the suggestion.

    👍 my 6* hits like a truck at R1, I’ll be ranking mine up in the next couple of months, but yeah Quake first for sure

    That would be my man @Aryl. May his forum account rest in peace. Here it is:

    He definitely is a great counter, but I wouldn't rank him up too much just for masochism, especially if you have better champs

    Hamin/Aryl also made a list of what the synergy counters.

    All in all, it is a very, very useful synergy... especially in AW if you run the Unholy Trinity.

    Those 3 can basically take any lane, any node or any boss.

    My 5* sabertooth carried me to uncollected...
    It works just like u mentioned with the killmonger synergy so u can bypass thos nodes and also make sure that the parries u apply to the collector and he wont shrug it off...
    Mine is 4/55 and i love him! True beast

    No one knows. But he's still with us. In spirit. (And on an alt account that shall go unnamed).

    I play him without synergies. He's awesome. Too bad he loses his furies after 4 to 6 fights. He'd easily be a top ten champ without that handicap.

    I’ve done a few ventures into Lines in the Sand, and he’s been fun so far. Defiantly need to take him to r3 at least to be viable.

    If he didn't have his persistent charge limitation, he'd definitely surpass Aegon for the best option for LOL and Abyss. His raw damage would be without equal and he'd have solid utility with the KM synergy and super high DOT with the Omega synergy.

    I've had him as a Rank 5 for a long time. I use him all the time. No regrets. I have a video somewhere where he took LOL Elektra down in around 3.5 minutes. He's insane when ramped up.

    That synergy doesn’t only apply to Masochism. If you time it right it can apply to any annoying ability in the game that isn’t immune to AAR. ST was my first r5 and was my main attacker for 100% LoL. Once built up he hits hard. Pair him with Omega and he has a chance to inflict bleed on his basic attacks (think it’s a 30% chance and bleed deals 40% of the damage of the basic but may be 40/30). More debuffs = more chances for AAR to trigger.
