Summoners, the Necrosword Crystals (the crystals in the Knull Cavalier Preview Bundle) currently have a higher than intended drop rate of 6-Star Champions.

We will be leaving the crystals as is for the time being, but will be correcting the drop rates before Knull receives his official release on October 28th. To ensure that this does not affect anybody that purchased this preview bundle, we will be auto-opening these crystals before that date, but this means you will not see what you received. To avoid any confusion, please open your crystals yourself ASAP.

Is 5 star Venompool a decent first time 5 star crystal drop?

After months of grinding and saving, I finally got my first 5 star champion.... Venompool.
I never used venompool before, is he decent?

    Evidently, cr*p is a banned word. I feel a bit disappointed at my first 5 star hero.

    He was my first or second 5* and he's still sitting at R1.

    I was so mad that I got him, I debated about making a support ticket to return him and get my crystal back.

    Look he’s not as good as champs like Medusa or hyperion but he’s a solid champ.

    He’s reasonably tanky, has good bleeds on specials, has a decent regen on special 1(provided the enemy has a buff to steal) and his l2 heal blocks.

    That’s a decent kit.

    If he’s your first 5* I’d rank him to R-1-2- maybe 3. It’ll be good for a back up questing champ at the very least, but also good for war diversity and arena points.

    Though if you are short on mats maybe wait till the end of this gwenpool event and see if you get another 5* to use.

    I got him rank 2 right now. I don't earn much tier 4 class catalyst to go higher.

    From what I read, he uses masteries that I don't have. I played for a long time to save up to unlock some of the more vital masteries and I got him.

    I am also hitting that spot of low earnings of any tier 4 catalysts is grinding me to a halt in growth. I am mostly ranking up 4 star heroes to rank 3 and moving on.

    Use him until someone better comes along.

    I find him fun to use. No one would mistake him for a god tier champ but he's not terrible. Better than Groot lol

    He isn't the worst, I mean I've got a 5* Iron Fist (which is not that bad imo).

    He’s alright. Spam L1 and he gets 10% regen if Om Nom works and the bleed is good. Plus he’s XL so he might help if we have size based nodes (like in Wsp celeb challenge). Def not someone to be hyped about but he has his uses

    Not sure what masteries are required for him.

    Deep wounds could help but not really necessary.

    The one that increases regen (salve or something, can’t remember what it’s called at this time) could be good if you are using him for his regens.

    Other than that, I don’t think he’s really a champ you can take advantage of masteries for.

    I was saving credits to buy canisters anyways for the greater regen anyways.

    VP isn't too shabby. His sp's give good bleed and his sp1 can grant good regen when used on an opponent with a active buff.

    He was my first too, not awful, not great
  • jaylerdjaylerd Posts: 113
    Take him no higher than R3 but he's fun! There are worse, there are better. If I duped mine, I'd be ok with it.
  • RicemanRiceman Posts: 216
    Yes. He is fine
    He's has good sustainability and decent attack power. Also what's the problem with Iron Fist
  • phillgreenphillgreen Posts: 2,364 ★★★★

    Solid R2 champ and definitely not bad for a first pull.
  • MagrailothosMagrailothos Posts: 3,603 ★★★★★
    Yes. He is fine
    He's got some utility and sustainability, high health, and reasonable damage overall if the opponent bleeds. Stuff to consider -

    Reliable bleed on all specials

    Reliable heal block on SP2, plus decent Precision boost if you let him dance afterwards.

    Buff removal is a very unusual ability for Cosmic champion. It's mostly only mystics that do this. It feels very good to SP1 an opponent; make them bleed, strip off an Armour or Regeneration buff, and gain one of your own all in one move.

    His abilities make him pretty effective against nodes like Rage and Explosive Personality for for this reason; and opponents with Healing abilities, which you can often remove with SP1 or block with SP2.

    Yes. He is fine
    Any 5* is likely decent for your first 1, he’s got ok utility, strong bleed and honestly not bad overall
  • Avetrex2Avetrex2 Posts: 59

    I voted this only because any new champ is good for the arena points.

    Spider Gwen isn't actually that bad. Just wanted to point that out. Her evade is great. In trap mode she can shrug off an attack when she's charging a heavy, and Iron Fist has a great Armor Break.
