**RESOLVED ISSUE WITH SIDE QUEST KEYS**
The game team has resolved this issue. Keys will be distributed via in-game messages and the quest timer will be extended.
More information and timeline here.
*This includes currently unclaimable keys as well*
**WINTER OF WOE - BONUS OBJECTIVE POINT**
As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

Should I continue my run or wait for the Act 6 changes?

I have attempted this chapter over 10 to 15 times but each time either Black Bolt(stupid life cycle and limber) or Medusa(buffet is annoying) ended my journey. I feel it's best to wait for the Act 6 changes to go live should I attempt the Act 6 run or wait for the changes to go live?

    Waiting will make your run much easier. Also , the choice nodes at the end will help.

    Just wait. It is really close to changing. Would be a waste to put any resources in just to complete a couple quests a couple of weeks earlier.

    If you're struggling there's nothing wrong with waiting. The only thing you have to worry about is people saying "you did the easy or easy easy version of Act 6". Do what frustrates you less honestly and have fun

    @Noobda @GinjabredMonsta @Giuliameij to be honest I only faced Medusa twice rest of the times I got severe beatings from that Black Bolt

    One of the genius bits of it is that the cheaper energy requirements will make it easier to restart a bad run, rather then feeling compelled to item out because your stuck in. I’d wait.

    Hi Y'all,
    Sorry to hijack the thread.

    I am currently stuck on Medusa.
    Amazingly, I have a 6 star Symbiote Supreme in there and still can't do it. He's only at rank 1
    I can intercept her, mostly dodge most specials, and have 3 in md, 2 in despair, and 1 in deep wounds.
    The only issue I have is buffet. I (and unit man) got her down to 20%, but two crappy fights later she was back up to 71%, which hurt my soul! Currently have her back down to 37%.
    What do I need to do to avoid her regen; more despair, rank 2 sym sup, or more careful fighting?

    Happy to farm more units and resources

    Not gonna wait for changes, don't care if and when they happen, I reckon I have skills and champs to do it, but buffet is owning me.
    Help, please.
    :)

    Which path is relatively easier?

    Which path is relatively easier?

    @winterthur the one with invisible woman alternatively you can take miles path if you don't want to face biohazard
  • winterthurwinterthur Posts: 7,487 ★★★★★
    The issue I have is Clapback node. Thought I could rank Dragon Man for Biohazard, but he can be incinerated. :D

    I use ultron for non metals and Magneto for the metal tags @winterthur
