    I also took Heimdall to R4 over Corvus, a wildly unpopular opinion if ever there was one.

    Want to be that rare r5 5* sig 200 king groot owner, I r4 him already but still hesitating, I know I will be special just not sure if I will be proud

    There's actually a poster here or on Reddit with one who loves him. Not my cup of tea at all but hey, to each his own right.

    Between that an Yondu I for one love the fact that you rank your preferred champs despite popular opinion. I took my Cap to 5/65 over Corvus and used a generic AG on him (I know not really unconventional though I think most would go Corvus).

    ...Taking Carnage to 4/55 over Venom after the buff.
    ...Taking Dormammu to 4/55 after the changes to MD.
    ...Taking Corvus and Void to 5/50 as a 4 stars when I already had or was working toward 4/55 5 stars of both.

    For the last one, the 5 stars are generally on my AW attack team and constantly tied up, I'm using the 5/50s for questing. Both 4 stars were used a ton on the monthly EQ Uncollected event this month, more than paid off in terms of use versus the cost to rank them.

    Wouldn't taking them to 5/50 while working on the 5* delay the 5* rankings?

    Yes/no. The only hold up was really on T2As for the R4s. Just took some preplanning to have enough T4B on hand as well.

    I opened a Science gem and popped it on Sentry within 5 seconds, now have 53 levels on him

    He is 3/45 now and he will be 5/65/200 if it's the last thing I do in this game, and he was going up before i ever saw Aegon and the Champion

    Heimdall is sneaky good. You were on that Day 1. If I had him as a 5-star I would look at R4, too

    I fed an AG n 50 stones When I got my first 4* which was a Karnak.I regret it now.
    Noobish mistake!
  • PaytoPlayPaytoPlay Posts: 765 ★★★
    MVP probably goes to swedeah who used a generic AG and r5 KK.

    LOL No, but I am glad that it is out there that after they made that huge adjustment, you can do stuff with him. There is a very simple rotation, and while the character is not close to perfect, I will say this: You get those Reality Warps up, you are hitting hard enough for most stuff you run across

    Dude hits seriously hard with the Aegon and Champion synergies

    5* Angela to r5 and used a cosmic gem. No regrets. Shes my main war attacker, beat Lol with her and gets used for all kinds of story and event quest content. Let the lol reactions commence.

    Man, Angela is freaking awesome. I am more resource constrained so I have to take Hyperion up first, but she would be right behind him. She is a beast

    I'm considering selling my useless 4* to have enough 5* shards for the Dhampir crystal
  • spaceoctopusspaceoctopus Posts: 694 ★★★
    Back when I took Hyperion to 5/65 most people thought I was crazy to do that over Magik, lol. So glad I made that choice. He is in my opinion the best 5/65 option out there.

    I took Sentinel up to 4/55 over Stark Spidey. Zero regrets. I also feel kinda crazy because I have 5* Blade and Spark still at rank 1 as I have no need for them (I have then maxed as 4*s).

    I used my generic on a 5 star corvus...just because I wanted my top champ to have those silver stars. Still no regrets.

    This is by far not against “popular opinion”

    Anything ghost, corv, Domino, Blade, SS, aegon , etc is not against popular opinion

    I R4'd Psylocke, she just has a fun moveset.

    I'm about to 5/65 Emma Frost and use a generic on her, over spark and Captain America Infinity War. Just cause I like how she plays lol

    I was gonna do mine over CAIW too, because CAIW is a great R4 and my attack team is good, if I ever roll someone better, CAIW will have no purpose on defense, and Emma needs the R5 more.

    I can't say whether Emma needs the rank more or not, but Cap at R5 is just too good and leagues ahead of R4 Cap. I took mine to 5/65 unduped (planned to use elders bane AG) and his damage is out of this world. Coupled with his insane durability he bulldozed through much of act 5. Definitely not arguing against Emma, she's literally my number one most wanted champ now, but Cap overall is the better champ imo and one of the best options for 5/65.

    I took my 5* OML to r3. He was my 2nd ever r5 equivalent. I demolished act4 with only him and Magik. I used them as I didn't have them in aw attack or Defense. Don't regret a bit, still love him a lot.
