5* Voodoo vs. Medusa vs. Hyperion - Who to Rank 5?

BadroseBadrose Posts: 583 ★★★
I'm tired of waiting for something better/new, all I get are VERY OLD USELESS 5* champs, no matter if I spend 15k for a featured or not, just the same old s**t over and over. My Alpha 2 are rotting in the stash for few days more... So I have to make a very hard decision on who to take to rank 5.

I know what they do, I know how to use them, I have a preference for Voodoo which is the character I use the most everywhere, but I'm so undecided...

Probably the right question is: who works better at rank 4? And I think the answer is Voodoo, but opinions are needed! Medusa is the only one who is unawakened but I have the generic gem.

So, Voodoo, Medusa or Hyperion?

    Rank 5 Hyperion. Damage is incomparable
    Plus his utility and is a great defender but the downside is the furies with the heavy

    If you plan on dropping him in on defense in AW then hype. If you use voodoo a lot and absolutely need to get rid of precious rank up materials, then him. Or, just hold onto stuff to R2 your next 6 star, cause those 3 t5bcs don't grow on trees. Just not unduped Medusa...

    How long have you been waiting to R5 someone? I know it's a little ways off still but would you wait for Act 6 to drop or want to roll a maxed 5* out sooner than later?

    If that's the case I'd say go Voodoo. You've expressed a preference for him in your OP and he's as deserving as the others, plus it lets you save that generic if you're hesitant to drop it on Medusa. I don't think you'll have any major regrets whichever you decide on though, all 3 are elite champs.

    I don't think utlity champs like voodoo benefit much from r5...he can do what he is known to do even at r4..whereas champs who depend on their base attack benefit more from the rankup..hype can also cover the difference between r4 and r5 with his fury buffs but medusa I feel is the one of the lot who would benefit most from the rankup and she is a worthy enough champ for that generic..
    Btw if the issue is expiring t2a...how about taking someone from r3 to r4 and save the t5b for after act 6 comes out

    About... 10 months? I'm the most unluky man of the world in this game, I tried everything to get Blade but NO! No Blade, no Corvus, No Cap, No Iron IW, no Domino, not a single champ released in 2018 (thanks Kabam)! That's why I'm tired. Yesterday I opened my last crystal, I had Domino on the left, Blade on the right, but I've got Hakweye in the middle.

    That's exactly my thought, as I said I don't think Voodoo or Hyp benefit a lot from R5, Medusa is probably the best choice but I need to use the gem. As for taking someone from r3 to r4, the problem is the same: just old champs

    :'( :'( :'(

    She is as good as it can get for a champ to be worthy of using that gem...champs with as much attack and defence potential as her and worthy of a generic are very few..but yes it depends on what are you looking to do with Ur r5..LOL yes she is a great option for that..progression yes..aw attack yes..aw defender yes..she checks all boxes
    But then again...if u don't want to use that gem on her,I would rank up a mid tier champ to r4..someone who would help Ur alliance by being in defense..or someone who covers an area or two where u are lacking even if it's an old champ

    Do you go for the featured or basic 5* crystal? I have awful 5* luck too so decided to go all in on featured at the start of the last iteration. Went 2/10 with Corvus and Cap being my big hits and another solid pull in Ultron. Still a way better ratio then my basic pulls though. Honestly I know tons of players who would kill for duped Voodoo Medusa or Hype so it could be worse.

    Im all in on featured from now on, I tried a few more basic after my featured run and pulled another 4 champs for the trash heap. As long as I snag Ghost I'll live with another pile of duds along with her. I want Ghost tops of all available champs, if I luck out she's going straight to R4 and potentially all the way.

    Sure, I got 3 Juggernaut in a row in the last old featured for Blade. Then same crappy champs, the last I remember are: SpiderGwen, Elektra and Karnak a few weeks ago.

    Medusa. Go with medusa man. R5 medusa with furies and armour break and bleed hits like 10 tanks at once.

    Feed Medusa the gem and rank her up. She will not disappoint.

    Alternate thought, not sure if you plan on buying anything on cyber Monday, but you may want to wait to see if they offer a 5* AG. If its a generic offer, then for sure rank medusa and then hold on to the other one for later. If its not a generic you still have a shot to pull cosmic. Or it could be an offer that might allow you to pull a new champ.
