Hi all

i have a 5* Generic Awakening Gem burning a hole in my pocket. Question is should I use it or wait for something special/else?

Currently have Cap IW at R4 and Hyperion and Ghost and R3

Any advice is appreciated

    Aa isn’t worth a generic imo. I have him at 5/65. But everyone else yes.

    @Endarkened save it

    Since it’s a generic awakening gem, i would say to wait for someone else
    I know that CapIW is better duped but he doesn’t NEED it....His utilities aren’t god level anyways.

    People like OR, AA, Medusa, Void... those are def worth it

    Thanks to be fair that's my thought too, but just wanted to check i wasn't be too cautious

    Killmonger is great but he doesn't need awakened to be great either! One of few!

    It is a nice roster! Congrats!

    Somehow you dodged a bunch of the garbage i got!

    CapIW and throw every sig stone you can get into him...at sig 200 he can do most fights in the game

    Even though my avatar is Cap IW... I love me some Hype! Maybe make the decision on how many sig stones you have in each class?

    If you have more Cosmic, do Hype!

    If you have more Science, do Cap!

    I don't think you can go wrong from either, but I have Hype at R4 unduped and don't regret spending those resources. I am waiting for him to get duped to unlock ridiculous fury stacks and damage.

    Hype only needs a few sig levels to be great.
    CapIW needs to be close to sig 200 to be at his best.

    First off, awesome roster, that’s some pretty nice luck. Second, I would have said definitely CAIW and put a bunch of sig stones in, but now with the OR, definitely throw the gem on him.

    I would say or and void are most worthy of a generic as they are rather useless without heir awaken ability

    Omega or hype

    im curious why youre so adamant on where they got it. theres been a handful of places to get one on top of fairly easy places as well. maybe he put time 100%ing act5

    Use it on Omega Red and pump all your Sig stones into him, duped with a high Sig he’s a top 5 champ in this game

    Jesus I was just asking. Don’t have to get so pissed for no reason. Was just wondering because based off his roster he’d had more r4 if he’d done act 5.

    save it for someone who needs to be awakened to be good mate

    ie Aegon

    Very few champs are worth a generic. Medusa, Archangel, Void, Omega Red, Blade, Darkhawk, Night Thrasher, Dr. Voodoo, Ghost, and Aegon are worth it.

    Very few champs are worth a generic. Medusa, Archangel, Void, Omega Red, Blade, Darkhawk, Night Thrasher, Dr. Voodoo, Ghost, and Aegon are worth it.

    I think the criteria for using a 5* generic are:

    1. The champion must be among the strongest champions in the game. Opinions differ on which these are.

    2. The champion must be way better awakened than unawakened. Champions like Archangel, Void, Blade, and Omega Red fall into this category (but not everyone would agree they all fall in the first category).

    3. You intend to use that champion RIGHT NOW to do content you either can't do, or would be too expensive to do, that will immediately improve your resource earning potential. For example, you're trying to become Uncollected, fully explore Act 5, become Cavalier, or you're gearing up for LoL. Or you're trying to improve your performance in war, and your alliance focuses (to some degree) on war. Or you spend more potions than you want in AQ, and you think awakening this champ will reduce your potion burn substantially (one of the reasons Blade gets awakened a lot, and a good reason to do so).

    It is usually #3 that people don't consider as much as the first two. Never awaken something with a generic or even a class gem unless you plan on using that champ immediately. If you do it just because "they are worth it" but you have no use for the champ right now, then the almighty RNGesus is going to hand you a natural dup with a crystal and make you cry. If you awaken Blade or Omega Red and become Cavalier, and a month later you pull a natural dup, you can still be happy you got all the benefits of doing that content earlier than later. It is the natural dup after awakening before the champ even got out of the garage that tends to sting.

    I'd strongly disagree with you about Caps utilities not being God level. I used a generic on mine and took him to 5/65. His sig allowed him to demolish every Human Torch so far, allows him to shut down lane 7 in AW and I solo KM on 29 with him every war (tier 4) which wouldn't be possible unduped. He's an amazing champ straight from the crystal but awakened and high sig he's an absolute game changer and well worth a generic AG.

    Of your champs I'd use it on Cap or Omega without hesitation and would strongly consider Night Thrasher as well.
