    Hone stay I would say none of them and just wait for the shards to come in another way bit if you do sell one it shold be Old Man Logan. When you open your 5 star post what you got here

  • I agree with the post above and keep your 4* Champs and find another way to get the 5* shards. More 4* champs also means you'll have more chances of duping one and getting 5* shards that way. I don't have a 5* yet myself but couldn't bring myself to sell a 4*, even a crappy one just for a few shards but that's just me.

    None not worth it. They're still valuable. Just join a good alliance that grants 5* shards for SA or play the Monthly Event or Story Quests (particularly Act 4)
  • Never ever sell your champs. Bad idea all around lol.
  • Here’s some considerations for you about selling 4* champs in raising more 5* shards (if that’s your aim)

    Anyway, here are some of my own ‘guidelines’ whilst selling 4*. And again these are mine, and so it may not be entirely applicable to you but hopefully it provides you with some idea.

    1) what is your current ability in obtaining 4* shards and 5* shards?
    The faster you can get 4* shards, the more you should explore selling i’n-excess’ 4* champs. Also consider hitting arena milestones consistently for rank rewards. That’s about minimum 400-600 5* shards weekly if you are diligent enough.

    2) Do you have a higher than average roster?
    I have 60 4* at R5, and more than enough 5* to take me beyond 1 hour grind per round. Therefore, I hardly use 4* R3s anymore, even at arena. The extra 21-23k points per round just isn’t worth my minutes anymore cos my R5s would have been refreshed. .

    3) Don’t sell any champs that are already at lvl99. Even if that’s Joe Fixit.
    Lvl99 gives you additional 275 5* shards via max sig crystals. Never sell those. These maxed out ability champ can warm your bench for life.

    4) Do you have the same champion as a 5*?
    Given a choice, I’d keep my 5*, Rank that champ up instead of wasting more resources on the same 4* champ.

    5) There are champions that I wouldn't even contemplate selling if they are newly released champs or high value one like Mephisto, Nebula, Dorm, Blade, Ultron, Vision, GP, Iceman even if I have both versions. .
    So having said all that, I would then pre-qualify a list of Champions that I’d be selling regularly. I would keep these champs up to lvl up/advancement event, rank them to r3 and sell. So my regular list is
    1) moonknight
    2) abom
    3) hawkeye
    4) war machine
    5) cap Marvel
    6) IP

    None, I won't recommend to sell any 4*
    Don't sell any 3* as well
    Don't even bother to sell 2*
    You can consider selling 1*, but they are useless even if you sold them anyway, so don't bother too

    Keep all your 2*, 3*, and 4* .... you won't get much out of their sales, better to keep them, you may get more resources when you DUPPED them ... so can't possibly dup them once you sold them

    Besides, some of the 2* will never appear again once you sold them especially some of those you got them earlier in the game. Some ppl sold them and regret their action bcos they didn't get much out of it, and they can no longer get them back into their collection

    I couldn’t wait for 30 5* shards which I ended up getting 6 hours later from bounty mission so I sold 4* kamala. Felt lucky at the time so that’s why I did It then. Pulled a 5* stark spidy. Regrets no not at all but at the same time I’m not a fan of selling champs. I’ve only sold 3 champs ever and don’t intend on doing anymore of that.

    Don’t sell
  • Joe Fixit
    Don't sell your 4* for 5* crystal, and you'll end up receiving a crappy champion.

    Nonsense. I sold a R3 Loki to open a basic crystal a couple weeks ago.
    Duped my R4 Voodoo.

    Pretty sure he asked which one he should sell, not whether you think he should or not. I chose Joe, cause every time I sell him he finds his way back home to me :)

    It's fine to sell some if you need them within a certain time frame depending on your roster. The "Never sell any champs ever" people are wrong. You'll pull them back soon enough, especially if it's a **** champ and you get 4* regularly. Sold Ant-Man and BB to get enough shards for 5* Iceman (got him), pulled both back within two months, then of course duped Ant_man soon thereafter. FML. Just consider long term vs short term balance and you'll be fine.

    I’ve sold hardly any champs but I have sold joe fixit as 3* and 4*. In fact I’ve sold him a few times but he keeps coming back.

    None, if you dupe you get shards in the long run. If you sell and pull the same champ again youre back where you started

    Don't listen to people who say never ever sell champs. There is nothing wrong with selling a 4* here and there if you have a big enough roster. Just make sure you rank them to 3/30 first for more 5* shards. I sell Joe Fixit every time I get him. Probably been over a year since the last time though. Sold 4* unduped Colossus the other day. No regrets lol.
