Most Beginner Friendly Counter to Abs Man

AshacekarAshacekar Posts: 1,860 ★★★★
So i thought i won't do WoW but thought to give a try just for fun. I was randomly picking champs from my roster and then picked Quicksilver. Mine is R3 maxed with not much sig.

I was amazed that i was able to finish it with just 1 revive, i know it can be soloed. But i found that he is the counter that hurts least or no brain cells and abs man respects him unlike anyone i tried so far. I think by adding dot immunity, Kabam forgot to add whiplash immunity.

So for anyone just wanting to complete WoW for fun and get easy 2 points give quicksilver a try.
-------------
He has following benefits:
1. Abs Man never heals throughout the fight
2. If you get Ko'ed, you can continue again without fear
3. One Sp2 shuts down unstoppable completely
4. No worries around changing states, he won't reach magma form often with withers and uru form won't hurt.
5. Least damage to fingers, he does many hits at once and adds many whiplashes that take health chunk by chuck for you.

    Awesome! Thanks for this! Now if only you could delete this post before Kabam makes AbsMan whiplash and wither immune 😂
    Unfortunately you are right

    I tried with my QS last night after trying and failing with sandman, but failed.

    That could have been because u was already frustrated at my sandman attempts though, I wasn't super focused.

    Imma give this a try again today, mine is r4 max sig so he should be able to do it somewhat easily.

    Surely. Keep 5-10 revives handy incase. It's easy to take 10% health atleast with QS before a retry in the worst case. And all checkpoints will be saved here, he won't go back up.

    Yes, long fight rotation deals close to a million damage so even if that doesn't KO just do it once more

    What prevents him from healing up? Do you have max despair?

    I don't think you'd need even max despair since he places so many debuffs, but it would certainly make it less stressful

    I do have max despair but i thought it might be something from his kit. You maybe right. I went through his abilities and didn't find anything related.

    He does add heal block, just checked now. Don't know how but he does.

    Just thought I'd add that the sp2 isn't what stops the unstoppable but rather it is getting 300 velocity (putting the slow on the defender) which you can get very quickly with a parry, heavy, and spam dash backs or even a sp1 if you feeling up to it.

    That icon is the Indomitable node kicking in. It’s just letting you know that you have hit the max amount of heal reduction, with Despair in this case, but that you can’t further reverse it.

    Thanks, you are correct. I just verified now. Mostly i was reaching sp2 right around at 300 charges so thought it to be sp2 doing the trick.
