**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.
More information here.
**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

This path in 2.2

Kavya30Kavya30 Posts: 213 β˜…β˜…β˜…
To the person who designed this path, who hurt you? Are you okay?

With one of the most annoying node by far in an EQ, 3/6 7 star Sauron, Bishop, Apoc, Man-Thing and Terrax??? Should have ended it with a hulkling or a knull instead of Thor 😭

    Who did you use? I want ideas, please?
    I am thinking:
    Peni (Sauron/Bishop/Apoc/Cap)
    Stark Spidey (Sauron/Bishop/Apoc)
    Miles (unblockable)
    Thing (Terrax/Cap)
    iBom (Man-thing/Cap).

    Maybe I will awakened rank 3 Scorpion in place of Stark as he is not duped and rank 1.
    What do you guys think?

    I used a team of 6* R3 Scorpion, Venom, Spidey2099, with 6* R1 Kraven & Agent Venom for this chapter, including this path

    But looking at it now, I would suggest to ignore the unblockable node & just bring champ based counters to have an easier time

    - Nimrod will do Sauron & Apoc
    - any good Bishop counter like Warlock or Kitty or Iron Doom
    - Scorpion or Spidey 2099 or essentially any poison/buff immune for ManThing
    - Wiccan/Absorb/Sorcerer supreme for Terrax.....Kitty should also work if u bring her for Bishop

    I used nimrod for sauron and apoc,
    Quake for bishop, namor for terrax and scorpion for man thing. Just have to ignore the nodes and bringing in the counters was better for me.

    Thanks @AMS94 and @Sarvanga1_ for your advice. I used Nimrod for Sauron and Apoc (80%). Tried Warlock for Bishop but couldn’t push him to sp2 due to the unblockable timing. Ended up with Peni and she was mvp for me against Bishop, Apoc (messed up the unblockable again with Nimrod) and Terrax as well. I used Scorpion for Man-Thing. The evade charges really helped. I only used one revive in that path in the end.
    Now I just have to research to find the other hard path in chapter 2 that everyone mentioned. Feel like I am on a roll thanks to you guys.

    Based on the thread I think I was an absolute idiot for taking only science champs and venom

    IDK the path with Spot & Stryfe in this quest is miserable also. TBH would they should probably spend less time developing new champs that are at this point just retooled versions of current ones and more on actual content. Input issues aside, with content getting worse and worse it's tough to justify continued gameplay.

    I used Void void void ibom void and venom for boss. Scorp was in war when I explored it.

    I used quake only one you had to try against was apoc because he stops evade.

    Hold heavy ai trys to hit you they are stunned. Hold heavy again rinse and repeat. It is the quake map for people who can't use her.

    Put most of that blame back on Kabam. Their path planning is horrendous and they built in a node that makes evade counters (like Venom over a spider) unable to take advantage of the node because it breaks their evade. We shouldn’t have to search all the paths to make sure we don’t need to bring any champs that have no way of benefiting from the global nodes. The purpose of those nodes are to make the quest more enjoyable and having to step away from taking advantage of them both seems and feels more frustrating and longer than should be necessary for this content. They need to stop throwing champs at these quests like a splatter paint project and spend some thought on it.
    Agreed. I think part of the trouble is that they're building more champions who need specific counters, then building the counters (because that's a good strategy for making the new champions desirable); but then in these type of EQ those specific counters are frequently gated out.

    BTW, it's not just Venom who has an issue with the Evade charges.

    One of the good options should be Agent Venom; but I found him really unpredictable because half the time (suspiciously close to half the time, one might say) he wouldn't activate his Evade charges and would take an Unblockable hit to the face.

    I suspect his ability to passively reduce the opponents Evade chance is at play. So two of the really strong options can't realistically use the intended nodes effectively πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ.

    She certainly made it a lot easier, thanks. But she can't handle Stryfe, whose Medium attacks can't be Evaded - what genius put him in there?

    Not just that mutant path (which is definitely the worst) but the whole chapter 2.2 is trash. This whole TB EQ feels like it's designed to punish us and not make it enjoyable in my opinion.....

    The best advice is to use champs that counter the defenders and ignore the nodes ( in CH 2.2 and in general).

    When in doubt, Herc it out πŸ˜‚ forget the nodes and bonus buffs ect all that stuff. Just use Herc.
    Or wreck those mutants with Nimgod and bring a counter for Terrax and Manthing.

    Very simple imo
