I thought it's any red strike tile?
so with both patch and psylocke its 2 people down for the cost of 20 red instead of 28 since you can cast bti n get 2 tiles then get a reduced 6 red cast for the last one, before swiping a match to finish him off(hopefully with OBW for double dipping, triple if you get a black punch tile off 1st).
Has anyone found a good use/team for this character yet?? Mine is at level 89, and even while she was buffed she was hardcore underwhelming.
I've gotten to use her a little bit now, and it sure seems like the some of the doubters are correct. Her blue ability steals 'dead' AP about 90% of the time. It almost never gets anything for which the other team has a use for. You have to be sure that your team WILL have a use for it. Black is obviously a good one that you can get a lot which she can use herself. But there is also a pretty good chance you will end up with purple. Stealing a bunch of purple that neither I nor my opponent can use isn't very sexy.
Does anyone else just love Psylocke? I get that she isn't as fast as people think, but I think believe she has more utility value than punisher... I have been playing around with her and a lot of other character combos and she just seems to fit well with any team... Psylocke+Daken+OBW is tons of fun
I think people are lured by the red's deceptively cheap cost. To start 'spamming' it at 5 red AP you'd need 26 red AP (8+7+6+5) by the time you actually got the 'cheap' red. For 28 AP, Patch will show you 2 dead guys in PvP and even in PvE, most level 230 guys will go down to two of his reds. Sure you'd have about 300 damage worth of strike tiles on your side but that's actually not that significant against level 230 guys, not to mention Patch can show you how to get big strike tiles too for considerably cheaper.
If you go 5r you got to pair her up with someone else who can generate red strike tiles, which is either Daken or Wolverine 2*. That might be good for some PvE event where one of those two characters are buffed, but it's going to be problematic in PvP.
That said she's still hard to figure out a good build, because 4 in red is probably ideal, but then you end up with most likely 4/4/5 which doesn't make much sense either (the 4th point in Bewilderment is basically useless), but 5/3/5 barely makes more sense.
