Due to an issue with Alliance War Defense Tactic, we will be ending this Alliance War Season effective immediately. This current War will not count towards your Alliance War Season Score. War Season eligibility rewards will be reduced to 2 Wars in the Season.

We understand that this is not a perfect solution, but without the ability to remove or freeze the War Rating quick enough, the rest of our Alliance War season would be compromised.

This war will remain active, and in-game, you will still see the season until tomorrow. After we end the season tomorrow, we will be taking some time to collect data and remove the changes to the Alliance War Season score. Once that is complete, we will be able to send out Alliance War Season rewards.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

A hot take on Odin

Odin is the Apocalypse of the cosmic class.

1. Makes others in the same class godly (well documented Hela gameplay)
2. Great on his own (although the pic below is with Heimdal and Angela and Odin at r1)

    He's definetly a fun champion. I give you that.
    I just wish I could pull him 5* beyond, instant maxing

    Does he need to be awakened? I just pulled him and have a cosmic 4>5 gem I could use but I know nothing of this man and what he is capable of. I was going to use it on cmm but if there's an argument for odin I'd be willing to listen.

    Is there any effective rotation on Odin? Thanks.

    The rotation I use is heavy, heavy, sp1, heavy, sp3, heavy, sp2 for long fights. And for regular fights: heavy, heavy, sp1, heavy, sp2. The only downside is having to stay close, but he is a great evade counter.

    That all seems like a pain.

    Ye Odin's pretty decent, the larger the healthpools the more effective he is, very decent burst damage that is not limited by damage caps as well, plus his Armor, True Strike and Bulwark all make for great utility and survivability.

    OP I'd try maximizing his buff rotation though, you're missing out on the two buffs on SP1 and the Extend Buff on SP3, they both raise the SP2 burst damage even more. Being aggressive helps them stayin paused and refresh with an Odinforce SP2.

    His pre-fights and synergies are not as impactful as Apocalypse's though imo. Odin mainly helps out Hela, and to a lesser extent some other champs like Ghost, Angela, Surfer and Red Goblin, while Apocalypse can give a significant bump to most if not all Mutants.

    I wouldn't call him the cosmic apocalypse, but I find him great as well. Very (very!) tanky, specially after sp3 doubling his permanent armor up, and great reliable direct damage from sp2. Being able to keep almost 100% uptime in true strike is neat too.

    Also, in normal short-mid fights you don't need to stress yourself with his main rotation to still have good damage.

    Here's a fantastic video about him by daddylonglegs:

    Odin is a lot better than people realize. Easy rotation. I took my unawakened Odin to 6sr2. He’ll go to r3 eventually. I already have Corvus and CGR at r3, so I haz priorities.
  • Geralt_123Geralt_123 Posts: 527 ★★★
    He is just an amazing champ.
    Counters too many nodes with his burst damage like Safeguard,Abyss or Labyrinth damage cap.Easy access of true strike.Access to huge fury buff and and huge block proficiency due to heavy armor ups.Energize buff by which you can fire back to back sp.Larger the health pool,greater the burst damage.
    Too much fun to play and these are just his own utilities and his cross-fight abilities are just super cool.He is also a great example of well rounded champ.
    Try him out and you will fall in love with him and always sing the song Thunder...Thunder...Thunder!

    Actually only Hela.
    Apocalypse can boost up Archangel, Wolverine, Storm, Cable etc
    Yeah i think cosmic apoc is a reach since odin lacks individual utility compared to Apoc
    And he doesn't benefit others as much. Still a solid champion though.

    I run Odin with my Silver Surfer. The pre-fights make Surfer hit me extremely hard as he gets extra red number damage per buff on him. I’m sure there are others with similar interactions.

    Shangi chi close quarters shows how op Odin cross fight ability is, that protection buff should not be underrated.

    That all seems like a pain.

    The thing with writing out champ rotations is often it can seem way over the top, complex and long to do. But when you actually do it yourself or see someone do it, it’s very simple.

    Take Doom for example, it’s hard to properly explain Doom cycle in a concise way but when you do it, it’s really simple
    Yeah, that's a good point. I'll give it a go.

    Also gives Red Goblin insane potential, Incinerate Heavy Spam for days and Permanent Aptitude boosts his Energize Buff.

    Odin is an amazing champ no doubt, but he isn't the cosmic Apoc because his Norseman ability isn't as powerful as Apoc's Horseman ability.
    I have mine at 6r2 sig20 and I will be taking him up to 6r3 once I form my next cosmic t5cc. He's very fun to play and has fantastic damage. The downside to him is that he only has his max damage every other fight

    First thought: Odin great

    Second thought: Odin is better than Ghost

    Third thought:
    Why is WS head in the wall?

    Shouldn’t it be hulk smash

    He's a disappointment. He's not bad. Heck, I'd say he's good -- but that doesn't mean he's not disappointing.

    I guess I'm saying I feel he should've been the Cosmic Apoc.

    I brought Odin to EQ and try out rotations as advised by Pin_the_AvengerPGT17 and Rookiie ytd, both are effective and good to use. Regrading his synergy partner, I don’t have Surfer above 4* and I’m not intended to rank up my 5* Hela further atm, instead I’ll test out with my r4 5* Angela and OG Thor and see who is better for max out.

    You're most, most welcome! I am not sure if Odin applying his own pre-fight buffs to himself increase his damage, but that's also something you can try! Cheers @Reference
