Bishop's Buff: How Will this affect Map6 Mini?

pseudosanepseudosane Posts: 2,560 ★★★★★
Bishop, after his buff, is really going to be a pain as a Map6 mini boss.
The nodes on him are: No Hit-M...ercy 3
Soft Guard - 2
Power Focus 2
This makes him a really tough mini to start with especially because if you mess up he starts the next fight with the power he ended with.
With his new buff and ability to place incinerate, this makes him even more of a pain. With very few counters already, this further thins down. Kabam, is there a plan to tune down/change out this mini boss?

    You guys do realize they’ve changed mini bosses placed in AQ when they get buffed

    I know it’s only one champion, but Vulture seems like a very potent counter to him. He’ll actively benefit from the incinerates and has some power control in his kit.

    Silver Surfer would be fun with all those incinerates

    Is there any update on this?
    It's obvious that with the interaction of the buff and the nodes on the mini, if you don't evade the Sp1 or Sp2, you're kinda screwed.
    You also need to have somewhat of a power control, an incinerate immune, some who doesn't take too much damage on block.

    I heard several weeks ago in YouTube streams that Kabam told CCP members that Bishop would be removed from AQ after the buff.

    @Kabam Miike @Kabam Zibiit @Kabam Vydious can someone weigh in here? The thread was made detailing concerns over a week ago. Yet there has been nothing to help, or even any reply.

    Or you know. Mix master prove yourself bishop in map 7. That sounds like a pain

    Fun Corvus timeouts.

    You can't. He starts with the same power that he had last fight. Can't evade L1, if you get clipped by L2, you're screwed.

    Doesn't look like they are interested in this. Sad that we'll have to suffer one week of this at the very least before they may start to hear our concerns.

    Any reason why the Doom heavy spam won’t work following buff?

    Because once he reaches 30 prowess, shock on him starts making him lose the prowess but deal energy damage.

    Hey all, unfortunately Bishop will be live like this for the next AQ cycle, but will be replaced/retuned starting with the series that begins on the 15th.

    So basically we're screwed this week and need to waste items. Good to know.
    This was brought to attention when the spotlight came out, so honestly, this could have been avoided.
    This happens every aq when a champ is buffed.

    Would honestly like to see options that aren't Quake or Ghost for the combination of nodes that are there now.
