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.

An Apocoguide to Mysterio’s Pain

So last night I was giving an ally mate some advice on how to best use Apoc against Mr. Fishbowl this week and they liked it so much that they immortalized it via mediocre photo-editing skills.


Additionally, I’d recommend popping health boosts if you’ve got them. You’ll be doing reasonable damage and Apoc has a chonky health pool, so health boosts go a long way.

    I used Apocalypse, but likely not as gracefully as I could have.

    A man of wisdom, thanks for this. Should make it a lot easier

    Fantastic! Sucks about the Line popup, I put my phone in do not disturb for that fight 😂.

    Two revives for 5000 6* shards ain’t a bad tradeoff.

    I always forget to use DND. But yeah I'm not mad with 2 revives, as that is what I was expecting to use when I first started using Poco.

    Also great guide btw! This is the method I used too

    @Wicket329 what about concussion? Think its worth getting that before the sp3 as well?

    I believe he shrugs off the concussion when his helmet reforms. You could probably apply it and then follow up with a poison-applying sp1, but you could also just fire two more sp1s with that power.

    That being said, I did apply the concussion occasionally in the fight. It had it’s uses, but ultimately you’ll be better off with the sp1 spam.

    Just got the solo, one thing that helped me was rushing back in after the beam on his sp1, but before the final hit, that way you avoid being pushed into the corner. The concussion debuff does not help as it can reduce the AAR for the matador node.
    Good luck with the pain

    Can you still attack during the reflect damage thing if you have the permanent debuffs ticking? Or the damage increases
  • Wicket329Wicket329 Posts: 957 ★★★★
    He won’t reflect any damage over time effects on him, only damage taken from attacks. If he’s not poisoned, you can hit into him as much as you like because you do so little damage that it doesn’t matter if it gets reflected

    Wish me luck as I will be attempting this with my maxed 4 star Apoc :) .... Only viable option in my roster..

    @Wicket329 Thanks for sharing this mate. I genuinely gave up on this week before I read this post. Just got the solo.

    The posion degen gets me every damn time (before i save up for the sp3) :disappointed:
    Dude doesn't want to fire off his freakin sp1.

    I had to take a couple resets because of this too. Sometimes you just get bad luck, but you’ll get there! You’ve got plenty of time left.

    Yes you can. The only time you don’t want to attack him when he has the damage reflect is when you have a poison applied to him.

    I found it easier to just go sp1 with weakness, sp2 with degen and then sp1 spam with poison. The permanent debuffs are unnecessary as there is nothing in the fight that makes it difficult to consistently land a heavy to refresh your debuffs. Avoiding the permanent debuffs SP3 makes it easier to get going and also avoid any poison from not armour breaking him while you get enough power.

    Infinity thanks man! I wasnt able to get him down from 60%. I read your guide. First time 80% and quitted, second time 50% and quitted, and third time... bom! Solo'd! My first solo in SOP. Thank you!

    True, but I made them permanent because it doubles their potency as well. The degen does more damage and the weakness goes from 25% to 50%, which is substantial. But you are right, it is not necessary.
