Is Blade 5* still worth R5?

Got enough resources to R5 another 5 star. I am curious if Blade is still worth investing in? I don’t get T2A or T5 very quickly. He is awakened. My other option is void.

    Is this even a real question?

    Sure there’s many great new champs that have been added this year but Blade is still top 3 at worst

    He's of course worth the r5. If you have ghost rider to pair with him that's even better.

    Kinda depends on what you need. Both Blade and Void are worth r5. The question is which one will serve you better. Void has a lot of interesting offensive utility: I used him for the thorns path for example because he can kill without really hitting anything. But Blade can save you thousands of units of potions in many circumstances.

    Honestly, hard for me to choose, since those are my first two r5s. But for the record, I did Blade first, and didn't regret that, and did Void second, and didn't regret that either.

    I have both of these champs as R5’s. Both are awesome but I will say Blade will be more useful overall to most people than Void.

    Blade will get you through a lot of content and save you units due to his regen and high damage.

    Nah I’d say he’s top 10 rather then top 3

    In a top player's hands, it is difficult to say. But in the average player's hands, I'd say Blade might be number one. In terms of skill required verses return on investment I can't think of a champion that delivers more to most players.

    100% agree. If you’re playing content where a mistake isn’t instant death, Blade can erase many mistakes by regenerating back up to 71% health. Can’t say the same for Void.

    Even the AW season of bleed immune...Blade was still a very solid option for me.

    I just r5’d my void over blade today. He’s more useful to me (I run line 6) and new content seems heavily anti-blade. Both are great choices though

    The on demand regen is just too good in almost every situation. And I'd imagine the trinity will be useful yet again in act 6 against villains, mystics and dimensional beings.

    Of course

    What is the sig level of your Void? That’s a real important aspect to weigh in.

    Blade is always worth a rank up to 5.

    Blade is a training wheel for noobs. Mines at r1 and will likely never move further.

    i feel the same as you

    I would strongly disagree with this. While there are new characters that prevent Blade from being instant death to them, I have not found any new characters that make a character with high damage output, DoT, and regeneration ON DEMAND to be "useless." I have him as one of my 5/65s, and he has been PLENTY useful against new champions and new modes in this game. Just because he may not be as insanely effective against the new champs as he is against your classic villains or dimensional beings, he still has plenty of use. And as has been previously mentioned in this thread, he is very user friendly. Whether you are newer and developing your skills or a seasoned vet, Blade is a useful champ that should be an asset to anyone's roster.

    Just my opinion, but I was kind of underwhelmed when I took up my Blade (granted he’s a 5/50 but still). His damage isn’t what I thought it was gonna be. Nonetheless, he’s still a good champion and great in certain situations, you can’t go wrong with the rankup.

    Mine would be worthless also if it was at rank 1/0.

    well i keep him there because i have better champs to rank up

    Definitely worth rank 5. Best skill champ in the game.
