**RESOLVED ISSUE WITH SIDE QUEST KEYS**
The game team has resolved this issue. Keys will be distributed via in-game messages and the quest timer will be extended.
More information and timeline here.
*This includes currently unclaimable keys as well*
**WINTER OF WOE - BONUS OBJECTIVE POINT**
As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

    Shock immune champs

    I have duped CAIW at 4/55 but dex mastery will trigger EMP right?
  • Hammerbro_64Hammerbro_64 Posts: 7,463 ★★★★★
    I use cap for it all the time. I just parry specials instead of dexing them
  • CrkwestCrkwest Posts: 384 ★★★
    Red guardian is buff immune, so it will never trigger.
    If not anyone with a god sustainable power drain, anyone with little about of buffs or a shock immune champ.

    Thing is great for E.M.P

    Quake so they never throw a special attack

    Thing, Doctor Doom,Korg I can think of. Maybe Corvus. Quake no 1 option.

    would doom work? He's shock immune
  • Hector_1475Hector_1475 Posts: 1,755 ★★★★
    Corvus is practically shock-immune.

    But CMM also benefits from it, since she gets all charged up and gets into Binary before you know it. Then it's all kinds of fun for you.

    The shock is passive I believe. He took all that damage when I used him.

    Corvus doesn't work bc he's not actually shock immune and it's passive. The champs mentioned that are actually shock immune like thing, Doom, Korg, and electro work fine. Someone like Red Guardian who never gets buffs will essentially be the same. Other than that you'd need really high energy resistance like sorcerer or guardian maybe or gulk with his face me. Quake of course just ignores the node like most

    @xNig @Worknprogress i completely agree both of you, CG is taking damage from EMP now.
    1. Can Magik be a good counter since she power controls?
    2. Mephisto with Dormammu synergy had 80% energy resistance, can i use him?

    Yes to both. But you know that Magik’s power lock is at her sp2 so you might need to tank 1-2 stacks of EMP as you are working your way to sp2.

    Meph with Dorm synergy works as well, but you won’t be totally avoiding EMP damage, nor healing from it through willpower. Therefore as the stacks increase, so will the damage taken.

    Gulk is slightly different cause he regenerates back the health (hence subjected to recovery’s additional 15%) and gains additional attack which allows you to end the fight much faster.

    This. Energy resistance is probably not the route you want to go unless you have absolutely no one else to counter it better. It will help but is definitely not ideal

    As a proud owner of a Red Guardian i can tell you he is made for EMP lanes. You just play it like any other fight.

    Before that, i was usually using Ghulk.

    Shock Immune, Gulk, Red guaridan, Quake.

    doom can easily take it out without any damage
  • MephistoMephisto Posts: 522 ★★★
    Thank you all! I cleared the EMP lane with CAIW

    Can't believe nobody mentioned one of the best counters to EMP... HAVOK! He gets supercharged from EMP! Just remember EMP EMPowers Havok!

    Very true, plasma detonation left and right and about...half damage taken from the shocks!

    Interesting. Maybe I didn't notice it due to willpower (or it doesn't work with passive damage)? Maybe I didn't notice it because Corvus ended the fight so fast, so it was a non-issue for me. Plus, mine is awakened, so... who cares about passive damage. (not flexing, I actually didn't have an issue with this node).
