Summoners, we recently encountered an issue with the Alliance Quest Setup Phase Starting Timer that may cause the Setup Phase Starting Timer to display erroneous information, though we are working on a fix for it as quickly as possible. Additionally, if the Setup Phase does not let you plan your days in advance, you will be able to once the Event officially begins on the Alliance Quest Start date.

For clarity, the next Alliance Quest Enlistment Phase will begin on December 5 at 20:00 UTC, regardless of what the in-game timers display.

The next Alliance Quest Start will be on December 6 at 20:00 UTC. This is when Summoners should be able to enter each Map. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.
Alliance War Season Rewards will start to roll out to Summoners very soon. These will take a while to get to everybody, so do not worry if an Alliance Mate receives their rewards, but you haven't yet. We thank you for your patience.

Help with UC Magik

    Yeah omega isn’t the best but he can get it done. Defo I got stuck in a loop once of my regen vs her regen 😂

    Get charges with corvus, use a boost. Mlm combos, you'll probs take one sp1 to the face, but you'll get at least half her health down. Don't hit her under limbo as mentioned above.

    Blade as well and think about doom parry light attacks too. Doom can't be knocked down with his aura up too, so if you can level him up before the end of the EQ, he should carry a lot.

    After that, you should have enough in CMM and collosus to get her down.

    You could try Omega as above as well, or your 4/40 quake with boosts.

    As no one has mentioned it, Omega Red is also a very good counter. When she’s just under a bar of power, parry and heavy. That way, if limbo proc’s, you won’t take the damage.

    But doesn’t she have buffet and chaos inversion? I tried omega in cav first run and he couldn’t put damage the buffet.
    So a few things-

    1) I also used Omega Red for the Cav Magik. I couldn’t one shot on my first go round but did manage some 60% off her. I’m running full suicides and doing nothing but parry heavy, I was able to keep 30 spores on her for quite a long time without taking any limbo damage.

    2) Buffet should be slightly easier to manage on UC version as it’s 5% regen as opposed to 10% in Cav and off a smaller base health.

    3) Special chaos inversion is something to play around. I managed by keeping maximum distance between myself and Magik. That way when I messed up and tried to dex normally, I was far enough away that I didn’t get hit when I dashed forwards.

    No doubt it’s a tricky fight, but with some careful playing, it’s not too bad.

    On my 2nd and 3rd runs, I went with old reliable Quake and one shot her both times.

    In terms of counters, Quake really is the best option but so dependent on whether you can utilise her properly.

    I think you can 4* Quake with parry-heavy—I used a R4 5* and managed it with plenty of health to spare. May get a little dicey, but the 4* should have enough health to survive depending on her rank.

    Dr. Zola

    yup destroyed it with my 4* quake with full health easy solo

    If you want a relatively standard fight, then use your CAIW; instead of the usual aim of landing an SP2; use parry-heavy as much as possible, with maxed pacify/Petrify masteries. Keep your distance when she's got power and try to push her above power thresholds using your SP1, as it won't trigger Limbo.

    Add in the right science synergy champ (Hulk/Ghulk) even as a 4* to halve her Limbo damage, and he should go through her.

    If you have the patience for a long fight Dorm is a viable option as well.

    Power lock her with Gwenpool

    Post your roster please




    Here's practically all of it lol, both ranked and unranked.
    You can get some serious chunks out with that 4*omega and possibly even that AA as well

    This. You can mitigate a ton if not all of the limbo damage with omega
  • Agent_X_zzzAgent_X_zzz Posts: 4,330 ★★★★★
    Quake, Magik, AA, Blade, Gulk, Torch, any defensive ability reduction champs (like elektra, gwenpool etc) Or any passive damage negators like Omega
  • WorknprogressWorknprogress Posts: 6,485 ★★★★★
    Could even put some mastery points in pacify and don't push her over a bar of power unless she's stunned. It's far from a guarantee but it can help not triggering limbo so much. Don't think I saw that mentioned
  • WorknprogressWorknprogress Posts: 6,485 ★★★★★
    It's honestly gonna be a tough fight with your options don't want to sound like it should be easy unless you can get comfortable with quake but you should still be able to take her down in UC for sure with what you have.
  • SatomiSatomi Posts: 87
    Thanks everyone for all the advice! I managed to do it with blade and capiw, as someone mentioned, her specials are quick so the timing is off putting and I got hit by her sp1 which kinda breaks my flow. I tried omega, but I panicked a bit lol and pushed her to sp2 before I could do any decent damage. Exploring it will be a bit rough, but I'll manage as soon as I get used to the nodes. Funny out of all the chapters she's giving me the most pain lol. Anyways, thanks a bunch guys!

    I feel you. I really hate the SP chaos.
    My instinct tells me to dash backward when I see her SP triggering and bam i got chopped and died.
    Defeated her with r3 5* hulk after like 5 or 6 revives.

    Planning to bring 4* caiw for the science synergy that cuts down oppenent attack by 50%.
    Or maybe my 5* vision to power burn that beast.
    If i feel like doing that chapter again that is.
    I'm newly uncollected. So UC difficulty exploration is still pretty tough for me with only 2 r4 5*.

    Hey all, I'm having some serious difficulty with Magik on the UC event quest. I don't really have a broad roster and actually no direct counter for her except a 4* Blade who can go through a lot but not one shot her (at least I can't). Is there any hope to defeat her or should I just stop burning my energy trying? My top champs are (5* r4) Colossus, Corvus Glaive, CMM, 6* Man Thing and recently pulled NF and Doom but don't have the resources yet to get them past r3. Also, I sometimes use my 4* BWCV and Cap IW (both duped and r5) but I'm also not sure if they would last long. I'm stuck and I really don't wanna miss out on the shards.

    Next option is AA, get some bleeds on with a heavy, parry a few times to stack poison and then heavy to convert to neurotoxins. Get 3-4 up depending on sig level and then no limbo. You can be unlucky with the debuffs and push her to limbo before you get neuros on.

    Yep game over in 30s.

    Blade is an easy one shot. Just parry her to death. She will never gain a bar of power and therefore no limbo or specials. This is quicker with deep wounds and also SES synergy.

    Next option is AA, get some bleeds on with a heavy, parry a few times to stack poison and then heavy to convert to neurotoxins. Get 3-4 up depending on sig level and then no limbo. You can be unlucky with the debuffs and push her to limbo before you get neuros on.



    Both are exactly what i would suggest.

    I will always recommend Quake. I’ve 1 shot Magik every time in Cav EQ using Quake.

    A 4 star maxed blade can easily kill Magik no synegies needed however take stark Spidey for the potency and watch him shred her apart

    I'll bring him along next time. I feel like I could have one shot her with Blade but it's hard to go against muscle memory.

    It's gonna be a bit tough, but you can do it! It's a transition for sure fighting against act 5 champs and UC 6* with bigger pools and all kinds of nodes on them. Probably the toughest (for me at least) is the last chapter. I really didn't struggle at all against Apocalypse, but I have CMM who is a shredder for me and handles most boss fights, but it's definitely managble. I had only 2 r4 until literally week ago bc I got heavily shafted on pulls lol, that's why Doom and NF aren't ranked yet. And yeah, it sucks they removed completion rewards but I believe in ya! Maybe try going Master first to get a feel of the animations? That's what I did when I first started. Anyways, good luck to ya!

    Robots are a bad idea as there is 60% reduced AA, abilities will fail more than succeed, basic stuff like parries.

    Not sure if it’s been mentioned but maybe dormammu can work using MM combos.

    Dormamu will work with MM as she’ll never have any power but that’ll be a LONG fight!

    Just had a test if you’re careful you can start with a heavy, use sp2 to power lock and detonate the heavy during that phase. Works pretty nice.
