Ronin

I have a rank 5 5 star Ronin and I think he is under appreciated in MCOC. His ability to gain cruelty, immunity, block proficiency, and high crit rating/damage should be recognized more throughout the MCOC community. Is there anyone else who agrees - or is this just me?

    I love Ronin, he’s on my list to take to r5 (He’s at r4) right now but I’m holding off because I’m hoping to pull him as a six star and r2 him instead since he doesn’t need his awakened ability

    Got him as 5* from anniversary and I'm thinking of R4ing him. Idk tho how practically useful he is, but sure feels fun to play and has interesting abilities. He looks amazing, but I think I need some help with how to play him

    I pulled him a few weeks ago but don't know much about him. Most people just say "get 7 charges and fire sp3 for max damage". But I'm more interested in knowing about his utilities. Having read his description I find him interesting as an attacker in AW, but haven't tried yet.

    Some opinion antd tips from Ronin users?

    He’s great with suicide masteries. I find him really fun and definitely underrated. Admittedly, I use him more for damage than utility.

    He’s definitely undervalued. I’m not sure it’s quite to the extent you make out, but he definitely is to a decent degree. Unfortunately I don’t have a 5 or 6 star to properly judge for myself though

    Pro-Tip: When you get to 6 cruelties, don’t leave that stance and activate the 7th cruelty until you’re ready for Sp3. You can easily stay in your stance by doing MLLLL combos.

    Once you get 3 bars, switch to a different stance to activate the 7th cruelty and passive precision, parry the opponent (if easily possible) and THEN launch Sp3 immediately.

    After the Sp3 is over, go in for the attack and get to your Sp2 ASAP.

    That way you maximize the time you have both your passive precision and fury up at the same time, increasing damage even more. Otherwise, the passive precision can sometimes expire before you get to Sp3.

    Here’s my Ronin:



    He is, indeed, incredibly useful and fun to use and I do not regret ranking him up, but I’m not a fan of champs that take such benefit from an Sp3 rotation. Like a lot of their recent champs, he also suffers a bit from an overcomplicated design structure.

    The very first thing that I would do to make him better is allow the passive fury to refresh with an Sp2, rather than having to cycle through an entire other Sp3 rotation again.

    I’d also raise his Wraith AAR to 75%, since I see almost no benefit from it unless I am using it in conjunction with the disorient from his Sp1.

    Finally, if the Sp3 rotation is necessary, I’d give him some kind of power gain ability like Namor or Doom, so getting back to the Sp3 wasn’t such a chore. Something similar to Blade or Carnage where power gain comes with bleed would be nice.

    You can also just retrigger the precision after it expires and then launch the sp3. Much easier and more damage

    How do you do that?

    EDIT: WOW. Thank you for that simple post to correct me because I never realized switching stances refreshes the precision until now.

    Nice!
