Ghost only needs the Wasp synergy, right? Not Ant-Man or Hood?

Like if I'm making a questing team, it wouldn't be worth it to bring anyone in but Wasp, right? Or do either Ant-Man or Hood really have that much to add?

Yes, Wasp is the only synergy that's necessary

No, it's worth it to bring in Ant-Man and/or Hood rather than amazing champs like Sparky, Domino, etc.

    I think that it is necessary to have the full trinity--personally, I never use hood--as it grants Ghost an additionally 25% attack at the start of the fight and an extra 15% per buff she has which really adds up fast. Ant-Man is essentially for good Ghost play, at least for me.

    For most situations, you only need wasp synergy. Hood is great for certain situations and sometimes could be the more important synergy those situations

    For high end players, I can almost guarantee that Antman is left out of the team the most. Ranking for most essential is Wasp then Hood then maybe Antman

    Depends on fights, if u have an opponent who gains crazy power and reach L3 really fast ( like boss rush challange symbiote supreme) u need hood for L3 invulnerablity, besides that if u want to reach full potential of Ghost ,u need ant-man too for %25 attack rating. So let's wrap it up ;
    - Generally if u wanna hit unblockable specials u need Wasp
    - In an average fight if u don't mind that attack rating synergy u don't need ant-man
    - In an average fight if u mind that attack rating synergy u need ant man
    - In a node fight , if your opponent reach L3 and u can't control the power, u need hood for L3 invulnerability.
    - In a node fight , if your opponent doesn't reach L3 and u can control the power, u don't need hood

    I usually don’t run any synergies with my ghost but if I do it tends to be the Hood one

    Hood is great for some matchups. Wasp is also kind of unnecessary if you can play well, but it’s useful for stun immune matchups where it’s hard to get an opening otherwise without taking block damage

    Hood synergy is fantastic if you’re on a power gain path. I’d say in that case if you’re gonna play ghost he’s basically required. Besides that I usually just roll with wasp

    A very good question. Let's take a look at how important the synergies are for Ghost. This is gonna be a long post, so the simple answer (in my opinion) is that none of the synergies are absolutely "necessary" for Ghost to be the god that she is, but they are very, very nice to have.

    1. Wasp synergy, this is a really helpful synergy, your special attacks while phasing (which ideally should be the only way you launch your special attacks with Ghost) are unblockable. While this really saves a lot of time, it's in no way a necessity. You can very easily just land a Parry or bait out a heavy attack to smash your opponents with a special. It's nice to have though.

    2. Ant Man synergy, +15% attack per buff on Ghost. This really enhances the damage, but as pro Ghost players would tell you, Ghost's damage is in no way lacking without this synergy, it's just a cherry on top kinda synergy. It's not needed.

    3. The Hood synergy, in my opinion this is the most valuable synergy with Ghost. She's a beast without it, but with this synergy, she's almost invincible. She becomes indestructible while phasing, she will take no fun and interactive damage and can tank SP3's left and right without breaking a sweat. If I had to choose one synergy, it'd be this.

    So in short, if you wanna buff up Ghost to her maximum potential, it's good to have all these synergies. But even without the synergies, she's still the beyond god tier badass she is.

    i use her alone for AQs, dnt really need anyone.yes they make her insane but without them she is still pretty awesome& damage is still great if u intercept with specials or just stun >dashback>special

    Would argue that you even always need wasp. Here is a video how to always land your sp while phasing without wasp.

    If you run suicides I’d bring good, ant man isn’t needed though

    I think ant-man is the only one needed. the Wasp is only if you cant time the sp2 to hit (its super easy to time them correctly) and Hood is just for tanking sp3s if needed.
