Cosmic 5/65 gem - to Hyperion or not to Hyperion...

Hi all.. I have a cosmic 5/65 gem and generic Awakening gem (no cosmic). I also have 2 skill 5*ag (no Nick or aegon), 1 mutant and Omega already awakened... So who else is a 5* generic to be saved for?

I run suicides... And given sig 200 Omega and 2/35 6* corvus, I'm unlikely to switch them off.

Should I just 5/65 Hyperion, or should I save it for CMM or venom?

Will I use him? Cavalier/6.1.6 completed only, v4 100%, one run through v3, not looked at act 6 for a few months.... Medusa goes everywhere with omega to deal with robots...

But then not sure what else I'd use the gem for?

    Hype I great. But if you run suicides, you would probably want to spam sp3, wich is kinda boring. His main thing imo is spamming sp1/2

    Hyperion without question is worth a generic

    I could of course take annihilus up to 5/65 for defence... And annoy lots of people.

    5/65 him 100%. If you awaken him, he doesn’t need sigs, which is a huge plus

    There are others worth the generic too. The question is will you benefit waiting on them? No, since you have already a great option for using the generic (that doesn’t requires sig stones also).
    Hyperion is superior to CMM and Venom. Not much, but he is.
    Pull the trigger and bring him to sig20 or 40. Having Hyperion at 5/65 lvl40 I can guarantee you won’t regret it 😉

    You won’t annoy as many people as you think.

    Agree, my R5 Annihilus rarely gets a kill

    Definitely go for it. Also he doesn’t need more than 20 sig levels, as anything past that scales horribly.

    I use my duped 5/65 Hype all the time.

    Annihilus as he has decent damage and is a good defender while hype doesnt need it

    Hyperion

    It's true that Hyperion is better without suicides, I'd still awaken and rank him up. You will still be glad you have him sometimes. Also, he's currently not available as a 6, which is always a good reason to max a 5* champ imo.
    As far as Annihilus, I'm not a big fan of purely defensive ranks ups, most defenders fall from greatness over time as more and more counters are released. I prefer to invest in champions who are good for both defense and offense. Some of the best defenders are also good for offense.

    Sort of but u can still parry-heavy spam to sp3, rinse/repeat. And u can heal with the sp3 - after dash back and hold block to heal.

    With suicides on I would wait, it limits him a lot and his greatest strength is the versatility fight to fight, can be going hard for sp2 or sp1 intercept all day or some other styles. But, yeah, he's a powerhouse and there's no mistake using a generic
  • MoosetiptronicMoosetiptronic Posts: 726 ★★★
    That's what I thought and I suppose if I move away from suicides, he's unbelievably solid... Hyp it may have to be!

    Go with Hype. I have Annihilus at 5/65 max sig. he gets a couple kills every war on the Mix Master node but you get more overall benefit from Hype by a mile.

    Hype deserves the generic gem, no doubt about it. And as others have said, he doesn't need a whole lot of sig stones. The difference is like night and day. Trust us, you won't regret it.
