PostSubject: Combat Supervillian Day   Fri Sep 01, 2017 6:42 pm

This day is notorious for 2 things:  being important for having 2 runs per week and having a very small pool of potential characters.  Also of note:  the beast can silence your characters and there is no way to counter this effect outside of being in iframes.

Leaderships:  Best overall is Titiana for 45%, but Ulik and Lizard also have 30% attack boosts that are serviceable.  I currently am using Ulik (they released Titania as I was almost finished farming Ulik....).

Best overall character choices are Carnage and Sandman.  Nebula used to be the budget option, but was difficult to achieve 100k consistently.

Carnage - my weapon of choice.  I have him at T2, gear 4 on skill cooldown, no uru, 6* unawakened POAH ISO set, and a ignore defense/recovery rate/damage proc obelisk.  Best rotation is 5-4-3 which is the safest, but 5-4-1-3 will give the most damage with the problem of more opportunities to be silenced.  Even with the "safe" rotation being silenced can quickly mean death or lackluster scores.  The iframes on 5 and 3 can be steered using the directional pad, best practice on 5 is to aim for the beast and for 3 to try and end far enough away from the beast where you are not in range to be silenced. Max cooldown is also very important to stay in iframes.  In my 2 runs this week, the first scored 123k while being silenced 2x and then 93k with silenced 4 times.  It's one of the reasons why this day can be frustrating that even with a good build it can be swingy.

Sandman is the cheaper option.  I have not run this day with him yet since he is 6* unmastered and ungeared, but from my understanding his rotation is something like 5-4-3.  ISO set would be best as any attack set and would need an obelisk with a damage proc, probably with ignore defense, crit rate, or crit damage depending on what you need from cards.  More to follow once I get to him.

In general, when silenced you have a couple options.  Kite to avoid mobs and meteors, switch out and attack with a support character, or switch and just let that character die so the main comes back in.  Which you choose really depends on the main character's health and the strength of the support character.  For example, I use a 3* Venom for a team up with Carnage so switching him out and letting him die is a good way to get Carnage back in quickly.  Switching to a 6* Ulik however can keep damage rolling a bit while Carnage or Sandman recovers.

Edit from Age of Apocalypse Update:
Beast's uniform turns him into Dark Beast, which makes him eligible for this day. It just so happens that it was released after I had just finished Titania, so slightly annoying. Overall however it makes for a much easier to farm leadership for this day if you need one. At 6* mastery it grants 50% Physical Attack like Titania. My Beast is still T1 (work on it) so I don't know the effect of his T2 passive on scores.

My new strategy at this point is to lead with Beast, Venom in the 2 slot, and Carnage in the 3rd. Open on Beast's 5 skill (since that buff will transfer) then switch to Carnage. I've noticed a lot of the times Carnage gets silenced as he's using his 5 skill so I started switching on the end of the skill to Venom. Venom will promptly die (he's 3*) and Carnage tags back in since he went to the 2 slot. I got 118k in my first attempt with this strategy so it's not a huge difference in scores. I don't think this uniform is a must have to score well on this day, but if you need a good leadership it's a easy to farm option.

Guess my understanding was backwards. Thanks for catching that
