    Typo? The rank ups keep saying "drains from enemy's AP pool". I thought it was always the friendly pool drained.

    I feel like 5 in Yellow is a must but not sure about the other two.

    Leaning towards 3/5/5

    1) does alien weakness drain friendly or enemy ap
    2) does alien weakness lock out military might
    3) does takedown make the team invisible or only venom's allies invisible

    Red is definitely disappointing. For a total of 22 AP needed for max damage, only 7234 damage feels too low to be worth it. Compared to Peggy Carter's red, which does 6751 damage and ignores protect tiles for only 9 AP, this power looks awful, and her red isn't even her best power. It seems like the whole point of his kit is to reach that 12 AP without going over, as if Flash is trying to utilize the full potential of the venom symbiote without going overboard and losing control. You'd think that the payoff for doing so would be more substantial, but the damage is just too little for the hassle of keeping 12 AP. Still excited for the character because Agent Venom is really cool and the artwork looks great. Maybe they could buff him before release like how they nerfed Strange's yellow before release.

    Do you never proofread?

    Red is horrible. Black looks great for quick damage. Yellow is decent. 3/5/5 for sure. Annoying character to play with though. Low mid-tier. If you can send his black out as a teamup, it is pretty useful.
  • ErikPeterErikPeter Posts: 695 Critical Contributor
    Red is pretty inefficient (bad) but Black makes up for it. 4k damage for 5 is good, and if you can manage to keep one AP pool above 16, a 2AP, 9-tile destruction cascade each turn is crazypants (plus Red's damage stays decent). 200 Health is basically nothing.

    So he takes a while to get going but will be a fantastic finisher... I bet Alien Freakness will sustain itself pretty well just by cascading into AP of other colors. Paired with any better red user he has no real drawbacks unless you need a full rainbow team. Plus the utility of his Yellow will buy some time against single-target heavy hitters who would otherwise nuke you. Plus, AoE damage in Yellow. Wild.

    Really hard build choice, you want him 5/5/5. Black is best; Leaving Red at 3 makes it worse than bad, if you're trying to stay above 16 for Black then 5 Red would be decent late-game damage. Hopefully 12 Red AP is enough to get full effect at 5 covers (that is, it should check for an AP pool of 12 before spending the 10 Red, not after). Looking at other powers as an example it should work that way, Black Panther's yellow as a Team-Up, for example, will make fat strikes if used with 12 TU AP, even though you spend 9 of it.

    For PvP I think 5/5/3 is better offensive and defensively than 3/5/5. Especially if you can team him with a generator who won't spend the AP (e.g., Black Bolt). Even though Red is bad, 700 Dmg/AP (5 covers, optimal) is a hell of a lot better than 200 Dmg/AP, and not that hard to save up for full effect in a longer match. 3 Red is a huge liability in PvP, 5 Red much less so; assuming my above speculation is correct, after 4 matches (12 AP), the AI would fire it for full effect instead of wasting 10 Red on a measly 2k damage nearly every time thanks to an unreachable 14 AP threshold.

    In PvE, you can ensure a better red-user is alive so go wild with 3/5/5. I'd probably team him with HB and another Red Battery. With 3-Hulk he's a strong candidate for any Hulkfinite team, except that he tanks Black/Red over Hulk; even so 9 additional tiles destroyed every turn is wild and would improve your chances of making a match in Green (or Blue/Purple?) ensuring Hulk tanks.

    Fear seeing him pop up after a couple waves of Ultron Sentries.
  • zodiac339zodiac339 Posts: 1,875 Chairperson of the Boards
    If you have the characters, try with thing and peggy. Use Thing's red and go 3/5/5 on Agent. With Peggy's blue, you can put the other team out of commission pretty easily. Or, you know, pair with anyone that has a better red, as long as the cost is low enough to not switch black to the passive.
    Realistically though, most of us are going to be stuck with a yellow cover and simulator required missions designed with lots of AOE, so the invisibility ends up pretty much worthless.
  • ronin_sanronin_san Posts: 980 Critical Contributor
    7234 for 10 red is not efficient. Pete's red is better.

    3/5/5 seems like the only sensible build. And he needs strike tiles from teammates. I'm thinking Punisher would work.

    Regardless, thank you for making the corrections. When can we expect to see IW's new buff powers and skills on her forum page?

    Again:

    We really need a button inside the game to show us the alternate abilities on things that turn into something else.

    Now with that tired refrain out of the way, this character is kind of a mess. His red is only its most efficient (and even then not that great) if you have a lot of AP. But if you have a enough AP to make his red worth using, his black starts hurting him and burning up AP. He's way too fussy to bother with.

    Obviously too late for them to revamp the category...


    I am just curious if anyone can elucidate a reason why this Venom should belong among the 4* characters as opposed to the 3*.

    We have seen with the edition of Doctor Strange (Stephen Strange) that D3 certainly has not forgotten about our 3* players.
    Many of us were excited and surprised to see the expansion of the 3* tier... after we've been getting hammered with 4* and 5* releases relentlessly.

    It would seem that this version of Venom would be a suitable thematic partner with 3* Spider-Man (Classic).

    We have a 4* Venom (Eddie Brock) with 2 overlapping colors, who has a very similar dichotomy of Beneficial+Detrimental black ability (Give and Take).

    This is a mildly recycled version of the 4* Venom (Eddie Brock) we already have... and I find difficulty wanting to use the new over the old (especially since many of us have worked quite diligently to level up the current 4* Venom (Eddie Brock) version).

    This is NOT a gripe / complaint by any means...

    I am asking the community / mods / developers ...
    What rationale do you see in adding this new character among the 4* tier versus the 3* tier?

    I am sure pessimists would say "4* tier adds more revenue to D3" ... or something similar about the game economy...

    But what is the counterpoint?
    Why is this version better suited to slot side-by-side with the 4* venom we already have?

    The short answer: 3*s don't matter to most of the playerbase, and don't increase game longevity enough.

    At this stage in the game's life cycle, the people who play and spend the most are in at least the 4* tier if not the 5*. The problem with adding new 3*s is that for the most part no one will care about them aside from newer players because of how scaling works. On top of that they're incredibly easy to get covered nowadays, so very few people will actually whale them, which costs much less than whaling 4*s or 5*s. Strange was added as an exception because of the movie tie-in, where Demi/Marvel obviously wanted him to be earnable by people just picking up the game.

    People like to gripe about getting multiple instances of the same character, or at least similar ones, but apart from broad thematic strokes Flash and Eddie have very different powersets. Eddie has two big single target nukes, one in green that can also serve as board shake and one in yellow that's just damage (fairly rare in any tier), and a niche black passive. Flash has a red single target nuke (admittedly lackluster), a cheap but powerful single target nuke in black that sometimes becomes free boardshake, and a yellow that deals team damage (entirely unheard of ) and also makes allies invisible.

    I have to wonder on the self damage on Alien Weakness, It's pretty low, to the point you have to ask, why include it?

    At max level 343 with 3 covers, 271 with 5
