V5 mystic boost: conterintuitive?

lowlevelplayerlowlevelplayer Posts: 4,298 ★★★★★
The buff grants increased stats based on the amount of buffs the opponent has. Most mystic champs use nullify abilities to counter buffs. I find this quite counterintuitive. In order to gain any benefit, I have to purposely not nullify anything.

    Guillotine is one of the only champions in the game who is mystic and doesn’t interact with buffs.

    Unstoppable colossus 🤪

    Yeah it does seem kinda odd, especially for sym supreme, every boost seems tailored to him but he has arguably the strongest nullify in the game which means they’ll never have buffs, unless there’s mystic ward

    mystic ward would make a lot of sense

    Magik will be nice. Keep your buffs, you just can't have any power. Then I'll finish you off with a nice l3.

    You mean chapter 2's buff? Seems like it is more meant for guillotine, you know, considering it's her EQ? Increased chance of bleeds, greater bleed duration, increased power for those s2 and s3.

    This might make me rank up my Guillotine if this is the case. I've always enjoyed the way she looks.

    Can’t wait to see Voodoo on it. Placing a Loa every hit, therefore gaining +10% attack and power rate every hit.

    I hope people will stop sleeping on voodoo now and start sleeping on their bed. ok that was stupid I'm sorry
    To be fair it'll be the first time I've ever used my 5* Voodoo in any quest. It's not that I've ever thought he's bad, it's more that I just have plenty of other champs that can do content quicker. Just never "needed" him for anything.

    you dare say other champs are better than voodoo😡. Jokes aside, I definitely agree. a lot of champs can do what he does and better in some scenarios

    Made the same observation on the Announcement, so far just had someone telling me stuff written in my own comment...

    You'd think the Node Boost would be something like "For Every Buff the Defender has had throughout the fight..." that way whether it's been Nullified, Expired, or Permanent All Mystics would still gain the Boost during the whole fight. Obviously the Potency would have to be reduced in that case to keep it far, but that just seems like it'd make for sense for the "Mystic Chapter" and not the "Only Mystics That Don't Nullify Much Chapter".

    It seems to me it was made for guillotine, but that would be far to restrictive, so it was expanded to all mystics.

    Convenient time to release a champ designed to heat new content

    I’m excited to see voodoo and man thing on this though, both apply buffs to the opponent like crazy, with voodoo you’ll keep gaining ability accuracy and applying more and more buffs and just enter absurd levels of damage if it works how I think it will
