I don’t have him yet, but I run suicides so my ears always perk up when I hear they are introducing a new robot. His animations look pretty fun and I like that he is XL and one of the first robot mystics, but I feel like I never hear anyone talking about him.... Does anyone on here have him and can you explain whether or not you like him and what content he is good for?

    I really like him. He is a strange mystic. He has a lot of mechanics that remind me of Hyperion, and his awakened ability is the only buff-related ability. He is very sustainable. I haven't really tried mine in act 6 yet but I will give that a go once he is r4.

    I have him maxed as a 4*... I am praying to get him as a 5* cause he will go straight to r4. HE is super fun to play and does some insane damage! He is very suicide friendly as well.

    He has another buff related ability. His cornered damage increases for every buff on the opponent. This can make his damage absurd if the opponents have a huge amount of buffs.

    I have him at 5r5 and I run suicides. He's amazing, tons of utility and his power gain is pretty nice. He doesn't have pure mystic abilities like nullify or stagger, but he has great damage potential while cornered and unstoppable/unblockeable after sp3 is helpful for bane node for instance. Power gain helps for bane as well

    I got him 3 times from the featured crystal and took him to rank 5 for defense. Figured I'd try him out for fun and really enjoy using him. Fun play style with interesting mechsnics and pretty good damage. He's not overpowered but definitely a solid champ

    In my massively limited experience of him, he seems like a cosmic robot who just happens to be in the mystic class.

    Can't recommend giving him ur rank up resources over the usual god tier candidates. He is fun to play though. If u enjoy using him then by all means go for it!

    I didn’t know that. Cool

    I like DM, got him as R5 5. He or it doesn't do the usual mystic things like nullify/stagger and stuff cause is not part of his abilities set skills. However, DM does have a slow mechanic on his sp1, also unblockable with heavies, and great incinerate with sp2. and some other cool stuff off sp3. He is a great for AWD as well. Being a XL champ, makes him vialbe for the XL varient too. Not bad choice at all.

    So hey guys, just opened a nexus crystal now, and my choices are dragon man, red goblin and ant-man (would get duped if chosen).. So hard to make a decision between DM and RG.. Please help asap

    I really wish he had some more mystic Oriented utilities like nullify, stagger, power steal etc but as for damage, once you corner your opponent he does a good damage.
  • SquirrelguySquirrelguy Posts: 2,047 ★★★★★
    @raviXsharma i would definitely choose dragon man. He isn’t a typical mystic, but he has some great utility and rewards an aggressive play style.

    I used Dragon Man to face roll through the SoP Rogue. People sleep on his long unstoppable w/healing

    I'd suggest 5.2.1 and 5.2.2. He cheeses the chapters. Power gains on him due to his charge. Just a few hits to get opponent into corner and then sp2. Game over.

    Yup, this is the fight where DM came in real handy. It wasn't in the same class of counter as iBom to Mysterio, but DM made the Rogue fight low-pressure and pretty easy.

    I'm sure he's also great for 3.6.6 thanos, but it's hardly relevant

    in my opinion, he is half dragon, half man, and half robot.

    What about biohazard fights? I think hes perfect for those.

    Nah bro. Hes 150% speedo

    I have him at R4 as a 5*. He is probably one of the fun and easy to use champ out there. Great utilities and damage as well. You can stack his power gain up to 3 and then cornered your opponents and spam sp 2. That damage you get when you cornered your opponent is so satisfying. Which content is he good for? Well, he helped me cleared Variant 2. He is my V2's MVP alongside Kingpin and Mole Man. He is an absolute beast!

    I've had him as 6* R2 duped (sig 20) for about 5 months now, so here's the lowdown:

    1- He will NOT fulfill the usual Mystic champ duties for which you would typically bring one in a quest. Thus, do not rank him up unless you already have at least one reliable and maxxed up 5* R5/ 6*R2 nullifer,staggering mystic such as Doom, BWCV or Sym/SorcSupreme.

    2- If you already have #1 above then yes, by all means do rank him up, he's great, fun and pretty useful for certain matchups.

    3- Mystic Dispersion, if you can afford to put it does help his playstyle a lot because basically what you have to do is is reach sp3 as soon as possible early on the fight. After this, then he'll get the necessary power charges for spamming sp1/sp2 when you have the oppo cornered or just launching another sp3 ( the latter if you run suicides)

    4- He's not the most suicide friendly mystic in the game ( that crown goes to BWCV and Diablo) but definitely above average suicide friendly champ. If suicides are your thing then just spam sp3... after each sp3 he'll get a short buff that will regen him when he is being hit on his block.

    4- He's good for matchups that reward you for unblockable, gaining power without having to hit oppo and/or against opponents with A LOT of buffs. A word of caution in this last statement: DO NOT bring him to fights on which is mandatory to nullify/stagger buffs or lest you're dead (For example, against Hyperion)... but he will excel against opponents that gain buffs over time and them doing so doesn't instantly kill you ( For example Odin, Angela, Venom, etc). The last statement is specially true if he's duped and at high sig. if not duped he is still good for such matchups but only if you corner the opponent and spam sp1 after having had thrown at least one sp3 ( in other words, if you run suicides it's better if he's duped and high if you want to access his utility/damage when interacting with opponents buffs).

    - Other niche utility of his is the ability to apply Slow, as well a a very unique ability to punish opponents that apply armor breaks galore. This is why he can literally eat (fry?) for breakfast many armor breaking cosmics such as Angela and Terrax.

    - Lastly, if you happen to have high ranked Diablo and Mr. Fantastic then that's itself another reason to rank him up, cuz he truly likes these synergies. ( Tigra too but not as usefl as the other two synergies)


    Hope it helps.
