The "curse" of the generic 5 star awakening gem

She is there..... She is alive :o She looks at me ... She asks me to use her.... I can not resist !!!!
Sooner or later I will use her and awaken a champion that I have been waiting to awaken for a very long time (like B.G. with 5s ÆGON) and then inevitably within a week or less (like B.G. with 5s Ronan :D ), I will find the same champion in the crystals .... it has happened to me many times before ... that's why I'm afraid to use it :'(
that's why She is a curse

    Just stock on them until you no longer get afraid to use one. I currently have 6 of them or so

    6 generic? impossible you can stock max 5

    Corvus. Immortality can come in clutch on so many different occasions and you'll be glad you have him awakened and as a consequence of that, you'll be saving so many items over time and getting out of fights alive, which you normally wouldn't or even shouldn't (looking at you do not go gentle).
    Cheers!

    I’m an advocate of making the best choice possible to push progress for your current roster with 3 caveats. NF, OR, Aegon. If you have gems earmarked for them then swing away! These 3, go from decent to god mode with awakening, also recommend stashing skill and mutant stones for Aegon and OR. Void and CapIW get honorable mention here too, same note on Sigs.

    5star gems are becoming far less rare as Kabam wants to push to the meta to 6stars anyways.

    On your current situation. Hype would be my recommendation, just gives him so much more utility where Corvus can save you potions but will keep the same utility

    Wait until you have a champ you want to use for specific content but only if only they were awakened, or would be so much better if awakened, then use it on that champ. If the generic helps you do content, it doesn't matter if you pull the dup a week or a month later.

    The problem is when you awaken a champ because you think you're supposed to, and it sits on the bench being all shiny and then you naturally dup the champ. That feels like a waste, because it is a waste. But a champ you awaken and then actually use to complete actual content for actual rewards is never a waste.

    I think Hype are the best choice for me, but I need more catalyst to full rank up I can wait for now

    I used to always worry about who to use items on and stuff...
    But my mentality now is that even if I make a bad decision, I can always earn more resources and make better choices next time.
    After all, it is a game, we are here to have fun.

    I was casually checking my inventory to see how many sig stones I had and discovered a generic 5* AG that I'd apparently forgotten about. I could use some advice on who to use it on, especially since I just pulled some sweet champs with the anniversary gifts. Options include:
    • R4 Warlock
    • R4 Gilly2099
    • R3 Sasquatch
    • R1 HT
    • R1 Sym Supreme
    Currently leaning towards Warlock or HT since I'm missing a good Tech/Science Champ, but could be convinced otherwise if the others are much better. Current goals are getting an initial run of 6.1 for Cav rank by January.

    None of those unless you have awakened 5* or 6* versions of nick fury, hype, ghost, omega red, void/caiw (either one, dont NEED both), corvus, cgr, aegon, AA, colossus, and maybe 1-2 others im forgetting to give credit.

    If you don't have most/all of those, when u pull one you'll have a LOT of ragerts about wasting it on these guys.

    HT is the only once id consider using a class gem on (unless i had some in overflow), let alone a generic.
