He is long overdue for a buff considering how long he’s been in the game and how bad he is. He doesn’t even have any good synergies to make him usable.

    97% of us who have 6* rosters are awaiting with baited breath.

    I’ve recently discovered a lot of champions I thought were bad, but they actually have synergies that make them usable. Groot literally does not have a single synergy that adds anything beyond stats. I don’t know if there’s anybody else in the game like that.

    There's a champ designer working on buffing all the guardians of the galaxy members. Gamora, Rocket, Nebula and Yondu have been buffed so Groot, Drax, and maybe Star Lord are left.

    Keep adding people such that Kabam can get a General Idea on what we want to see in a buff for a certain champion.

    New hero champ Baby Groot! 😍

    but… I guess that woulda been a 17’-18’ish thing if it woulda happened.

    Yes, he is one of the 2 champs who not only suck, but also have 0 improving synergies (other than the generic ones), that would make him even remotely viable. The only other champ like that is Superior Iron Man

    Superior Iron Man...

    Correction: There's one synergy that grants SIM a fury buff whenever he gains an armor up, but the only way to gain armor ups is to get hit, soooo...

    It would be nice to get one in 2023 since GOTG3 is releasing soon. Maybe he gets a buff when it releases

    1. Dead NF
    2. King Groot
    3. Wags pre fight
    4. Odin pre fight
    5. Black Bolt with Wags
    6. The new Guardians synergies

    Soooo….minimum 6 then 😉

    I think he meant a specific synergy that applies only to him. Most of those synergies can just be applied to champs that are already better, so there's no reason to use them with Groot

    I was referring to synergies specifically for him. Like why would I take groot with a NF synergy, when I can take pretty much any other hero.
