A request to all the Dormammu users...

I recently chose Dormammu from my Nexus. Might be a unusual pick, but I very badly needed a power control champion.
I have a idea that MM combo's are quite good for him. I never got a clear explanation about how his imbued mechanism works.
It would be very helpful if someone could suggest me how to use him...

    Gather around children.

    So basically he gets imbued when he reaches 100 dark energy. Gets that by nullifying buffs or more easily draining power with final medium. Imbued gives you bonuses on his specials. Like on s1 instead of nullifying 1 buff you will nullify all buffs.

    On s2 instead of just power lock you will also power drain on each hit

    And on s3 you will get this buff thingy that lets you regen for the dmg you heavy bomb does. Which is a lot and hes very easy to get from very low to max health this way.

    So no mm is not the way to go for a fight unless you fight someone like magik maybe where you dont want her to reach a bar at all you should throw mllll after getting imbued to stay that way

    Isn't his sp3 bugged so that you constantly gain dark energy even when the buff thingy ends? I seem to remember just permanently gaining it for the entire fight after throwing his sp3...

    Literally give him a block proficiency buff. THAT IS ALL HE NEEDS TO BE GREAT.

    Don't forget when he reaches 100, his heavy does a ton of extra damage. Heavy again to restart his charge and back to MM to get it to 100 again, if the fight lasts that long.

    Yeah it’s bugged. His abilities actually don’t function great. If you gain imbued from a medium and throw your SP2 directly after it doesn’t trigger the imbued effects.

    I would hope if he gets a tune up, the block proficiency is increased, the damage is increased a fair bit, and the SP3 bug stays because it makes him much better to play

    A dmg buff is way more needed

    Yes.
    HEAVY to kickstart building to 100.
    Medium ending combos for some slight Power Drains.
    When at 100, HEAVY again for big damage.
    (and repeat)

    (in simplest terms of using him. besides whatever SP's are done and when regarding imbued).

    Thank you everyone! The detailed explanation really gave me a good idea of Dormammu, @MegaSkater67 , thank you very much!
    The fact that he can be useful in variant 2 is something I just realized.

    If you need extra block proficiency just bring guardian.

    Guys, I recently tried to get use of his regen capability from the sp3. It seems like he keeps generating charges even after the buff has expired.

    Also. After I get imbued, more power draining combo's remove this imbued and it restarts once again.... Why does it happen so?
