    Just got him from a basic and took him straight to rank 4 with a rank up gem. He's a beast even unduped

    Congrats. I also just gotten him from a basic crystal. He is a beast even unduped. Mine is currently at r3 and his bleed is really good

    Because of his kit, he is an absolute, stone-cold killer of anything that procs active buffs -- Medusas, Venoms, stuff like that. Especially if it bleeds, because of how his L3 works.

    He isn't great in every single matchup, because he doesn't have a huge amount of utility -- no Regen or Power Control.

    But in a decent amount of matchups, especially if you don't get hit a lot and are patient, he can do catastrophic damage

    Ah, I see. Thanks ESF.
    I just landed 5* venom the duck and like him pretty well. Noticed his synergies and with all the talk about symbiote supreme...wouldn't mind getting him now.

    I have a 5/50, and I'm not the best player around. I have enough skills to fake it, most days. But one thing I do try to understand is which characters are pretty good, what they can do. You'll be happy with him if you get him, once you nail the mechanics -- again, I cannot overstate how catastrophic his damage can be in the right matchups
  • Congrats on getting him! It may go without saying, but one thing I haven't seen too many mention is that, since using his SP3 activates all of his Blessings, using his SP2 after will activate the effects from each of those Blessings. This will apply his Armor Break and Weakness Debuffs to his opponent, while also stealing their Power at the same time. In some cases, it'll be more beneficial to save up to his SP3 again to keep all his Blessings active as long as possible, but the stolen Power with the SP2 can help you keep your opponent's Power in check while still keeping your own Power built up and your enemies Armor broken. Again, I know this may be obvious to some, but it is something that I haven't seen mentioned too much and you never know when a well timed Power Steal could get you out of a tight spot.

    I only have his 4* but absolutely love him. I run him with mephisto, venom, strange, and capiw. Strange is almost usable again with this synergy as well.

    He actually does have some minor power control using his sp2 while in I believe his initial phase where he has power steal. Not nearly a reliable "power control" champ but can be helpful at times.

    Ha! I won't lie: I honestly had forgotten that -- usually, he absolutely melts most of my opponents after the L3 when I slot him in, I had never really gotten back to that L2 to notice that. Helpful to know!

    Thanks to you as well, Kabam Zibiit!
