**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.

Have about 200 stones expiring - who should I add to?

UsagicassidyUsagicassidy Posts: 956 ★★★★
Howdy, so I have about 200 stones expiring, plus more basic + class in the regular cache. I'm not a top-end player who has a bunch of their 7*s maxxed out so far (in fact the only one close is Hercules).

That said, with a bunch expiring it's time to upgrade and stone-up some of my champs! Who from my deck best deserves it? And I'd prefer if not all 200 went to just one champ unless there was a really good explanation for it, since I want a more rounded deck.

Also of note - I have a bunch of awakening gems so literally ANYONE not awakened could be and have x amount of stones thrown on.

    Out of your top champs, I know kingpin definitely benefits a lot from high Sig. Not super familiar with most. I have cgr, herc and kingpin at 200 with absman closing in next... Cgr just gets a bit more dmg from damnation so I wouldn't say he absolutely needs it though.

    Ah I meant to include this caveat in my first post! Good catch - I meant to say I have Kingpin at the lvl 65 sweet spot for now, so I don't intend to throw more stones in him for the time being.

    Kingpin and absorbing man benefit the most imo

    Good call but I gotta see if I can complete 8.3 first haha. Would rather throw expiring stones in champs I already use heavily.

    With as many stones as you have though, you could go to the next full rage... But also absman at max will do wonders even if he's just a defender for you. (I occasionally attack with mine but I'm terrible at light intercepts...)

    honestly i would throw them all into omega red and rank him all the way up, but that’s just my personal bias.

    otherwise i would say getting up scorpion would be good, i’ve heard getting up kitty to just over 100 is her “sweet spot” and obviously Abs Man sees a benefit the higher he goes.

    Doom at max sig also becomes more reliable, especially when there are cheesy uses for him. i recently sigged up my Fant Man and Nick Fury but they were mainly for prestige reasons (FM is R5 and nick is on the way)

    if you take warlock to 150 or thereabouts he becomes a huge threat on alliance war and battleground defense, but you would also have to rank him up and idk what your 7* titan situation is so i would be apprehensive.

    youve got a lot of good options but very few *need* high sig, i would recommend taking up those you use, but don’t sleep on omega red 🤫

    I DO sleep on Omega Red. Every time I try to use him in a match or quest or someone recommends him for something I use him and always die. Nearly anyone else is more useful than him.

    BUUUUT that’s because I don’t run suicides, and he’s only sig 40 (and for personal reasons the X-Men are my favorite characters and he’s a baddie, but not even a fun one like Mystique, and he’s SOOOO 90’s lol)

    Nimrod and Abs Man would be your top options followed by Adam and Ultron imo, personally I'd do Adam but I'm biased so up to you lol.

    i feel like if you just use him for super tricky fights and nothing else he’s never gonna feel like a good champ. that’s what i used to do with Kitty, i would only use her when i needed her phase, and i never learnt how to play her well, so could never use her phase properly, so i would always die and blame it on the champion.

    use omega more often, with all the more damage reflection and glancing nonsense he only becomes more and more useful. doesn’t need to hit the opponent, doesn’t take damage from reflection when using medium, heavy and specials. and hey, even if you do have to use a couple light attacks or take some damage, he can get some great regen from the L1 or L3.

    i’m really annoyed that i don’t have him as a 6* yet, i would 100% take him all the way, even though i don’t run suicides.

    my point is that unless you invest a little and try him out, you’ll never unlock his potential. if i were you i’d put 60 sigs into him to take him to 100, by the sounds of things that’s pretty affordable for you. then if you do like him, maybe rank him up. if not it’s fine, at the end of the day it’s a game, you can use who you like. but don’t use low level champs once every blue moon on a tricky fight, and be surprised when they struggle, it’s the most common way some really good champs get overlooked.

    If you can play her, taking Tigra to high Sig is like opening Pandora's box 🙂

    She wants >100, preferably 150-ish.

    Put sigs into Absorbing Man. He benefits a lot from high sig, particularly on defense.

    Dang, I wished I had 7* max sig Hercule.

    Kingpin is insane for bgs with high sig, both on offense and defense, if you plan to r5 and ascend him eventually, he is a great investment
