Im all for hard testing content and the need for rewarding a broad champ base. I have no prob with CB in map 6.1.5 he is a boss !!! But you get to havoc in 6.1.6 middle gate have the lanes! I only got hit 3 times out the 5 champs that all got KOD. Magik,blade, capiw all R5 then R4 hype and R4 Sl and he is only down 3/5. I dot believe in dying ingame when u havnt been hit! Just not fair as there nothing u can do but spend. Im sorry game team its just not what we should be striving for.

    @Jaded I've seen it discussed before but never saw the conclusion to the question of whether Iceman's Icearmor counts against Havoc or if it has to be a stand-alone armor buff (like Colossus) or a passive armor (like IWIM). Do you know?

    My best option was Angela during the monthly EQ last month.

    I don’t know either. I used vtd and banked armor up buffs and power gain buffs. Was able to sp3 to sp3 non stop.

    Yes Ice Armor counts as an armor up buff versus Havok.

    I used Heimdall against Havok as if you block a bunch of hits you can convert an armor buff to be permanent and I didn’t take a ton of chip damage doing it either. Angela is another MVP.

    Might I just its the balance thats missing, havok unless u have the one champ is too hard then u get to Heimdall and I took him out blindfolded. Then just for fun took on mordo with this 7% chance to evade! Lol i wish I had that 7% chance to win the lotto! Capiw back to beack 7% came up cap dead!

    It’s worked for me and my 5* Iceman.

    Is morning star unbalanced? Is abomination or hyperion or magik? There are tons of champions and matchups that require specific counters. Any armour buff or powerdrain champ can make havoc manageable. Your team had no counters therefore you got wrecked

    power drain. Armor up. I agree there are lots and lots of champs with these abilities.

    Yeah I had to start over on this fight a lot, don’t have an armor up champ really....so i just beat him down with Omega, took about 8 start overs but I did it haha

    Guess I’ll be using my r1 5* red skull since the stupid ban locks out my Angela and vision, come on kabam, what is the need for the ban
  • Ace_03Ace_03 Posts: 597
    To clear MK, Havok and Heimdall, look no further than Archangel, I brought him specifically to clear those paths. Also my R5 does so much damage against Havok I took him down with almost no health loss in under 30 hits almost everytime.

    Yes this havoc cost me like 5 revives to take him down.. That was silly.. Like 20 hits tha *bum* i explode and died, not fun.

    It’s not armor up. His is passive.

    There are a lot of armor up and power drain champs in the game. I personally used Venom and unless you got REALLy unlucky with the buff refreshes, you’ll get one armor up and you’re golden. Also, Cyclops is really effective against him (just saying).

    Alternatives are like what others previously mentioned, Angela / Ultron / Vision etc. Personally I tried Vision and didn’t really like how the fight progressed. Having an armor up champ and just ignoring his plasma damage is so much less taxing. 😂

    Dont ever make me celebrate that gem from variant.... ;)

    Nah I used a 6 angela

  • xNigxNig Posts: 2,864
    Hahaha. Awesome. I have one R4 one of my own too. Storm was my second R4 so it was a toss between Mag/Colo or Cyk. Took Cyk up cause Miike told me he’s really effective. 😂

    Yeah this fight is easily one of the hardest fights in your first clear...i did it 3 days after you could and to be honest i kept having to reset for that one fight simply due the plasma damage or whatever the hell he produces lol upon doing some quick research you need a armor champ... like constant armor.... not many great champs have that.... but my knight and shining armor lol was My 455 iceman ... got the one shot with him... hope that helps and yes i agree it's a bs champ/ fight lol good luck!

    Iceman works... thank god lol during my run i one shot him with my 455 5*

    I noticed this was the "easy path" on my first attempt - got to Havoc and lost 3 champs before I downed him.

    Then i quit out, restarted, and went All-or-Nothing path with Stark Spidey and Magik. No regrets.
