**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.

**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!

Whom to rank and awaken? (I'm usually not this torn)

edited May 2023 in General Discussion
I've had three champs in the mystic class staring at me for months just begging me to put them in the starting lineup.....I'm semi familiar with all three of them and am having the hardest time trying to pick which one to rank up and awaken. (I have a mystic gem and one of them is getting it. Not worried about pulling a god tier mystic to save for as I have 2 generics......will bring whomever I choose to r3.

DIABLO
CHAVEZ
HOOD

Any input and actual logic as to why would be greatly appreciated and lots of help. I can't remember the last time I was so torn between a few different champs.

Thx

    Suicides - diablo
    Otherwise, whoever you like playing most

    That's main reason I ask....I RARELY played any of them , especially since buffs....hence why they sit at r1....no suicides

    I would suggest hood, chavez is also amazing for offense and defense.

    May boil down to using ouchies or not as Diablo is nearly unkillable with them on. But he's no slouch without them either if you use high MD and his nullify preflight.

    Synergies could be another avenue to consider. Diablo pairs nicely with Doom and also has great synergies with Fantastic four and Moleman.

    If you use kingpin or ghost a lot, hood is a no brainier IMHO for the synergies. Both hood and diablo have useful utility and solid damage.

    I know Chavez is good since her buff but never used her. Just pulled her as a 6 star this week, but gave Hood my mystic gem from side quest and he goes everywhere that Kingpin does. I'd love to expand my roster options, but having to be strategic makes it hard to go with a riskier option unless they are fun to play and/or part of my childhood lore - something she fails on both counts for my own personal choice. Damage is great, but does she handle the pesky champs like hood or diablo?

    Another thing to consider is how close you are to opening a 7* champ. Unless I realy like a 6* that is also present in the 7* base pool, I'm not investing in them because getting the 7* would render most of that as... well not useless but greatly reduced in usefulness.

    Hood
    I advice you to see his gameplay by Munash and r5 Hood showcase by KT1

    I always have heard people saying Chavez is great after buff but have rarely seen her being used except from people who are Chavez PhD owners
    So I think she needs a high skill cap

    Honestly.. Diablo and Hood is a "both" haha.. I have and use both
    And they are both actually better with Recoil Masteries - but Diablo benefits from them in more game changing way (I spam as many specials as I please with Hood and he stays topped up from the Life Steal - remember it scales with damage.. so I find only benefit and zero downside to using him with Recoil)

    Chavez...I haven't really played her yet tbh

    This is the right answer. He can bypass so much and has the easiest access to phase/invisibility imo.

    Wish I had that gem. He's a monster.

    Sounds like hood......I mean I'm sure I'll eventually rank the others up.....he looks fun as well and to be honest that almost matters more.to me than what they can beat

    Go for it
    You won't regret it
    He is fun
    Has a gun
    Gets invisible and makes opponents miss
    Hits fairly well and power steals

    Hood,
    Probably one of the best champs in the game. Stun immune, miss, shock, bleed, MD, passive damage, stagger.

    Overall, he does much more than both champs.

    Diablo is good, but I find he needs suicides and not as much fun to play as hood

    I just did hood......I've never had him awakened in anything worth playing content. He is legitimately at sig 1 and already 100000x better than the unawakened version. Sig one and r2 and melting everything. I can't wait to rank this dude up more . He is so much fun to play

    Glad you found him fun
    Hopefully I pull a 6* of my own soon

    If you play hood right he can go faster than a r4 torch on nova flames in bgs.... That's the reason my 5* hood never leaves my bgs deck
