    You tested it can be sent as a TU?
    Don't know if it can be sent, but I've received one after a fight, which implies that it can.


    my favorite part of this power is how it ends stun.

    Now these are cute little features that make me upgrade my opinion of this power from 'effectively useless' to 'still not good, but useful in a niche role.'

    Take it as a teamup and use it against switch/ice/4thor/gorgon whenever a key member of your team is hit with a long stun.

    I've used the black power on her loaner in the pvp a few times to good effect, avoiding an impending big hit. The thing is, I'm cool with Gwen taking the big hit here because she's a loaner, so her health is restored at the end of the match. If I was using my rostered version, I'd probably be less eager to let her take the hit.

    Seems like she should have some true healing to make her black more viable in this use, especially given her low health. Perhaps tack it onto purple?

    How do you know she hasn't already got a healing code....

    Because somebody has already tested all possible combinations and haven't found healing.

    I was sorta joking when I posted that but I do remember reading that the test were done with 3 covers. Who knows what 5 covers will uncover

    Instead of the almost pointless corner destruction, she should've had Color destruction! To me color destruction would've been the most important aspect of board control.

    Only if it did no damage or AP generation probably. It would be destroying a specific color based on code input. probably only basic tiles too. But it could be nice, yeah.

    Someone's never had to fight Professor Chuck with his invis tile lodged snugly in a corner.

    Yeah, also at max level it's like, 3k damage for 4 AP which is totally solid.
  • spectatorspectator Posts: 395 Mover and Shaker
    Gwenpool and quake for ultimate board control. Although cap is probably still better.

    I got Plot Armor as a team-up. I got it from a battle with Gwenpool. It does what was described, it sent my entire team airborne for one turn.

    Gwenpool seems to have taken a nerf in the R112 update. I was rocking her with IM40 and LThor in the Venom Heroic. I was extremely lucky winning multiple covers, then insanely lucky with a cover pack pull and was able to champ her (my only 4*champ, Devil Dino doesn't count). Her purple can do 9000+ single opponent damage and selectively or randomly destroy tiles, including attack/strike/protect. Her green(at 5 covers) was doing 22026 of enemy team damage (7342 x 3). 3 shots would hit the enemy team randomly. If there was only one left, they would all hit the same enemy.
    If you can fill purple and green, or fill green twice (20 AP) every thing dies.
    Since 112, any of the three shots can miss. Anyone else playing Gwenpool or notice this?

    Thanks

    It may be a bug. People in my alliance are reporting that they cannot fire Chulk's black either. Make a thread in the bugs subforum.

    At 5 purple covers how many tiles can she destroy?

    because symbiotes need to go hide under a rock.

    Just champed Gwenpool, any preferred build? Assuming 5 in purple and green looking at the OP.

    I'm guessing 5/3/5.

    I just champed her myself, so waiting for a heroic so I can play her.
    Not going to try a 272 against my 5* scaling.

    5/3/5 since black isnt great (but it's a very good teamup).

    Any particular reason why Gwenpool, who started as an April Fool's character, is still in the Legendary Token rotation, but neither Devil Dinosaur nor Howard the Duck are?

    Honestly curious here, since I just got a Gwenpool green from the Crash of the Titans LT today...
