Hey all,
I just pulled a 5* red guardian from the 5* basic from the tier 7 casket, and was wondering how good he is. I have a 2 5* science AGs as well as multiple sig stones. My science roster is posted below. Is he worth it?

    Also thing would be good for alliance war defense but whatever floats your boat

    Very very niche, would use cap IW over him in most cases so i'd save the gem since both void and cap IW are better options.

    He's pretty much a bang average champion apart from his buff immunity, which is niche but very powerful in the right scenarios

    I use him for synergy with abomination. Otherwise he really shines in his niche and is pretty solid but not amazing outerwise.

    Most of the people I see who've taken him to 5r5s200 "don't use him very much" -- but they don't seem to regret it either.

    I'd say wait for Beardo or Void. If not those, then even Thing is the better choice imo. Great for cheesing certain things and also has that Thing defense if you war.

    Buff immunity is nice but he is too niche.

    I have him at R4 and I only use him for the Dormammu on my path in Map 6 whenever Quake is in War. I find him really fun to play but I can't justify R5'ing him anytime soon.

    I took him to r3 and sig 60. Probably going to keep him there for a bit. Might r4 him soon, maybe r5 in future, but I’m gonna save my stones for cap or void. I do really enjoy him as a champion though

    I dont like the fact that you cant take blocked hits with rg. And u need to build him like starky. So I dont generally use him.

    I used to take him on the science cavalier path before they changed it.

    I like him especially the damage on his sp2 at max charged. Unfortunately he's got a lot of issue. First, you can't parry with him unless you want to lose your charges which forces you into a dex, dex playstyle (A reason I'm never ranking up Sparky) Another is that his debuffs don't last long. They need to last an additional 1.5-2 secs tbh. Otherwise, give him some sort of enervate or reduce opponent power rate so you stay aggressive without pushing the opponent to their sp3. If you don't have BWDO for unstoppable on heavy, it's impossible to maintain the debuffs.
    That said, he really shines in his niche and that sp2 damage blows my mind every time it crits.

    To the people who say he’s Average: I might be in the small space where I’d say he’s great. The utility combined is great for lanes in act 6. In 6.3.1, there is a pilfer evasion lane, meaning bringing Venom or Nick is a risky option, but Red Guardian bangs on that lane

    Is he niche? Yeah I won’t deny he’s too niche to be considered above the names of Cap IW on and Void, but overall still a good champ, with great utility, great damage output, very high perfect block chance, and some abilities to save you in tough circumstances

    As for your situation OP, I’d save. He’s not better than Cap Iw and void

    Ya but like I could just use cap IW and parry heavy and ignore the evasion. In most cases that works out fine
