Earlier today, there was an issue where Summoners that logged on shortly after the Login Calendar switched over for the day didn't receive the Cosmic Ghost Rider login crystal. We've fixed the issue for players receiving the crystal now but will have to collect data and send out the crystal to all players that didn't receive it next week. We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to making it right for you all.

YouTubers’ Abyss guide. Which one?

Aegon finally arrived today (after exactly 61 duel crystals)(is this RNG at its best or worst?) and I will now prep for full ABYSS exploration even though I don’t even have two worthy 6 stars (really hope it is worth it, many have advised to ONLY do so if you have 6 good options, I only have one) :(

I have seen a lot of guide from YouTube such as Legacy, Seatin, Kt1 but I want to do more research to bring the best champs for each paths. The small dilemmas right now for easy path are: Quake or Heimdall, and Doom (to solo CMM) or Sym(to solo VTD)?

Anyway, biggest question is: Can someone please refer me to a guide they think is most in-depth and cost effective? It can be YouTube or reddit or forum post, etc.

I once saw someone on this forum said they completed Abyss with aegon using 13 revives. I would be great to hear their insights and tips. By the way, I wonder who holds the world record for the least item/unit spent in Abyss exploration. I feel like 2k units for each path is the absolute Minimum, BUT I really wish that someone can prove me wrong. (Looking for you, the 13 revives hero)

Thank you for your time, here is a picture to satisfy your OCD.

Have a great day!

    @Lvernon15 Not gonna do the following but would it be OK of you say spent 10 revives on Thing for Build up only? and would the rest of opppnents be better? - Aegon

    You can't go wrong with either Doom / SymSupreme for the easy path tbh. Doom will be a better all-arounder imho but either will work just fine. With SymSupreme you will have to bait more specials.

    This link gives you a good overview of Abyss that helped me

    Ægon will naturally build his combos for the upcoming fights and mistakes (unless ofc you have some amazing skills) will creep up on you

    Unless your aegon is a very low sig it won’t take that many revives, think my max sig took 5 on thing

    SS is better than Doom for the easy path, as long as you have sufficient points in MD. you can still take out CMM in 1 revive, and you will have a far easier time against VtD.

    Void is someone else you should consider for the easy path, as he can solo Joe Fixit pretty easily and can also cheese HtD with the right RNG. He’ll also be handy for IMIW and arguably Cyclops too if you think either of those fights may trip you up.

    I don’t think I’ve yet come across one single guide that has been the perfect be-all end-all. I drew on a lot of different sources and opinions - if I had to pick one, I found Munash’s individual fight videos to be particularly illuminating.

    My easy path cost me 67 stashed revives, 0 units in total. Paths 2 and 3 were also unitless, and I’m currently farming for paths 4 and 5 while I wait for the rest of Act 6 comp to drop. Drop me a tag if you want to ask about any of the specifics, will try my best to help out.

    Thank you for sharing your experience. I really appreciate it. I don’t plan on having more than 1 in MD. The upgrade in MD are too expensive imo. So I will resort with Doom.

    Now it’s aegon doom torch and heimdall. The fifth spot is tough because Nick is incredible with damage so you can utilise team revives more. MS can solo vtd and aegon. Void can solo joefixit, help HT in IM And mordo, and help aegon in cyclop. Really tough decision for me right now lol. Nick, MS, or Void. Do you think bringing both Void and HT is a little overkill?
    Its not a tough choice at all really. Id bring aegon torch. Fury morningstar and g2099 for the ms synergi. Doom is not the best mystic for easy path and heimdal isnt needed. I ended my easy path 1600 units and could have been less had i not been so lazy with the potions farming beforehand and i also did it very early so didnt have the luxury of knowledge as we do now.

    That team should have u covered very good and do feel free to thank me later when u realise just how awesome ms is for abyss

    HI_guys said:

    I wan to do an abyss path but lack doom or SS. Best mystic options I have right now is claire and Sorcerer supreme. Who will be the better option?

    I have the rest horseman

    Of course, sorcerer, claire damage is trush and sorcerer damage will be good after couple of armour break.

    Aegon, SS, fury, torch, heimdall is the best for easy path? Dont have torch but I do have Void. Not sure if i should wait for torch or just go for it, also OP heimdall synergy would be better to bring than quake for her evade synergy

    Do you have revives breakdown for all bosses? 1600 is incredible, 40 revives for everything. Would love to see who you used for each boss as well. Thanks
    I didnt use that team tho. I used aegon. Fury. Torch. Sym supreme and quake for my 5th spot which i highly regret but it was what i was told was the best team at the time so it is what it is. If you want a full breakdown feel free to add me on line. Jezzter123

    I made a forum post several days ago about my abyss experience, can be helpful for some extent. https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/225865/details-how-i-did-abyss-100-without-aegon

    Does SS need to be awakened? Mine isn't, but I have a Doom at max sig, so I'm trying to decide which one to bring.

    Not sure as I just got SS. I’m finding it weird to play him because after launching the sp3, by the time I get back to the sp2 the benefits he gets off the sp3 all expire. This happens even when I throw it at 100 blessings. And yes I run 4 in MD.

    I posted an exploration guide here yesterday where I go into a little detail with each fight on all the paths (besides the easy path), as well as my unit costs and briefly went over my preparation. Feel free to check it out!

    SS doesn't need to be awakened. For those cosmic fights, you just wanna cycle sp3 and use some sp2's along the way I think

    Do you need to be in a particular blessing? And do you need to launch the sp3 at 100 genetic potentials?

    Nick Fury is not needed for the easy path, I brought Aegon, Doom, Void, Proxima and Heimdall - no regrets.

    Thanks, but I'm assuming for SS to be viable you need high levels of Mystic Dispersion, I currently have none.

    I want to start and easy path run soon so I'm weighing up switching my masteries around.
  • PolygonPolygon Posts: 1,861 ★★★★
    Fury is not needed , but hes the best for IW and he gives everyone +20%. Aside from him and Heimdall, who else would you bring?
  • SpiralSpiral Posts: 83
    most of them are good. the problem is when people don't do the accepted paths fight for fight like kt1, so its difficult to use it as a path guide. its good as a fight guide. another thing to consider is commentary on the runs. i personally can't stand ilacskills' cringe af commentary (with no good advice btw) and he's on A LOT of different peoples' runs unfortunately. Hector offers a lot of good advice, sometimes lagacy and msd. Chat has good advice for streams that arent crazy like seatin or bg's.
