Variant 3 2.2 200% Passive Power gain path...

I just need that 1 path to finish Variant 3 but I legit don't know who to use for that mephisto, the power gain and the burn is absurd…

Is there any champion that can reliably do that fight or the concept is unit your way out of it?

    Void? Haven't done that specific fight yet though

    Good idea, but no. Void wouldn't work that amazing on that powerful an Improved Power Gain node. That +200% power gain basically means they start at 300% power gain. Each of Void's petrifys do -50% to that. So lets say you get the best case scenario and get FotV and 2 petrifys. Then you're just dealing with their normal power gain.
    Again, good idea, but it sadly won't work. Power Lock is a much more effective option for that. But hey if you could handle dealing with Mephisto's AoI power gain, then it's not like Void would be the worst option. He's still great for Mephisto. the power gain just makes it a lot more annoying.

    Fair point, but who is incinerate immune with power control? Or who did you use/plan on using?

    Blade works wonders. He doesn't gain his aura every X seconds like in arena*, so you can just parry bleed him to death, completely bypassing the power gain effect.

    *Like in Alliance Quest, rather.

    I'll give blade a run for his money I guess...

    Quake works as well.

    I ended up using Darkhawk. Just parry + medium to reduce aura triggering chances. Then popped sp3 to heal block him.

    Quake doesn't work cuz u can't reduce their ability accuracy even when nothing states otherwise which means that you will trigger spite if u go with dex on...

    I used Doc Oc. It took me a revive, maybe two but he really helps keep the power gain in check. Typically just parry heavy and it reduces the chance of aura from triggering.

    Doc oc if you have a 4/55 or 6* you can just heavy lock him against the wall and keep him power locked. When you’re spamming heavies while mephisto is against the wall doc doesn’t take damage from his aura. I think seatin has a vid on it but doc oc can cheese that entire path. I used a 4 55 on my main account and a r3 on my second. Worked out fine.

    And ghost with hood synergy works too if you have her.

    She still works because she will auto evade without dex & cause damage without hitting him. Had many ally mates use her.

    I would recommend using quake but parry instead of dexing so you don't trigger spite

    I used Cap and a couple revives. Didnt have another option. Magik was able to clear the way to Meph but she has no answer for the incinerate. Cap stops the regen and packs enough punch that it wasnt too costly. I also have the 30% ability reduction when stunned mastery so Caps parry/heavy playstyle was my best bet.
