    Sabretooth gets use in Sim because he passively destroys Gritty teams; I'm not seeing that here with Wolfsbane but it's not bad to get a new toy to try out.  She certainly seems better than a lot of the benchwarmers in the 4 tier.

    All that said we will keep getting new characters until the servers shut down.

    Very true yes. But also, Sabretooth's multi-hit red just melts ANY team when played with Thorkoye + a bunch of TU for example. 

    Wolfsbane's Rend will deal 5 individual slashes, but it will not continue to the following enemy.
    Certainly though, with just 5 TU for example, Okoye will help that 8 black AP do around 40K to a single enemy (~70K with 10TU).

    Then also, for 7 purple you will get Okoye's damage boost on up to 5 countdowns. That could be directed toward a different enemy each turn for 5 turns. 
    At just 5 TU, that's potentially ~9K damage for each CD. At 10 TU it's 15K+ each.


    Definitely agree that it's fair to have frustrations with dilution, and in other areas.
    I just wish more of us could see how fairly constructed criticism (as Bluewolf did above), and offering suggestions for improvement sometimes, should go much further with developers and the fan base alike.

    Wait, are you saying she works good with Okoye?

    Who doesn't?   :smile:

    If you get Wolfsbane leveled up to 8-13+ covers in the right colors for her initial PvP, then Yes.

    Just pointing out the contrary to being called 'useless'.

    Confirmation that I blew 2800cp covering worthy cap for nothing. Thanks devs that's awesome 😢
    I assume this is related to the Shield Training?

    And I hope you didn't direct buy Worthy covers....as good as he is as an annoyance in PVP he's not really helping enough to spend 120 CP on his covers.

    If you burned 2800 in pulls at least you got all the other stuff?  Dilution!
    Yes for clarity it was 2800cp in classics so it wasn't as if I ended up in a poor position! I managed to champ at least 3 others too. And ironically I pulled 2 Nico covers to take her to 10 meaning I can actually complete ST anyway!! Poor me lol

    I think someone already said this but WB looks another excellent 4* in this year. I would have to say the good outweighs the bad in terms of 4* characters in 2019. Shame the same cannot be said for the 5* tier.

    Well, she was also a part of the initial line-up of Wolverine's X-Force squad. So that wouldn't necessarily exclude her.
    I think the key wording is the "Uncanny" bit but hey I agree with you 100%! And whilst we are on the topic, about those Defenders...
    If that's the test, wouldn't it exclude Domino too?  She wasn't part of X-Force during Remender's run, and during the second volume of Uncanny X-Force she was on Cable's alternative X-Force team.

    You got me there. I guess they just make up the rules as they go along.

    Unfortunately, I'm past the point in the game where she'll be useful for much besides Required nodes, but she looks like she's got some pretty fun potential.

    Same here.  Its hard to use anyone that isnt meta, unless im just messing around in early Shield Sim matches.  The daily grind is long enough... Juggs made it quicker.  That was a nice addition.

    And for the record, i hate that i said those words.  I LOVE balanced characters and such... But since i cant get that here, i settle for fast clear times.

    Same with me.  The only good thing is I just need the one cover in either Shield Training, Placement or Progress and I am fine.  It takes a bit of pressure off overall.

    Cool character, unfortunately nearly every 4* release is overshadowed by and now measured up to the "jumpers", Worthy and Bishop. 
  • jameshjamesh Posts: 1,437 Chairperson of the Boards
    The comic cover they chose has one of the worst portrayals of Rahne.  It seems like the writer wanted to make her cool, so gave her a leather jacket, dropped the Scottish accent and put her is a secret relationship with one of the students she was teaching at the school.  Other than the wolf powers, it may as well have been a different character.

    His damage is actually classified as power damage since it does activate Kitty's red cd tile. So it's more likely that it's coded in a way that intentionally ignore Okoye's black :( 

    As for Wolfsbane, I'm in the same boat as TPF Alexis. I guess she looks fun but I'm not excited about new 4* anymore. Her black invisibility tile might be good but it's a bit annoying that it blocks her black active power and there's no way to get rid of it other than matching it or using other character's random tile destruction power.

    Maybe if her passive let her jump out, remove the invisibility tile, negate the damage and  attack the enemy when her friend's about to be harmed like Worthy or Bishop, she might be something  for the current meta.

    I'm getting close to that, but with 6 champed 5*s my second-most used character is Sabretooth... After Okoye (probably that's obvious).

    Point being: it's still more than possible for a 4* to be meta! The more they cause "meta-braiding" between the 4* and the 5* tiers, the better it probably is for the longevity of the game.

    Welp, my intro to Wolfsbane was having all 5 of her CD tiles matched before they went off. RNG gods are awake.

    There are absolutely good 4* options to use alongside 5*. I very rarely run full 5* teams, and actually never did until I got 5torm and Profe55or X champed (numbers 5 and 6 for me). It's usually more effective with someone like Grocket, Medusa, Chavez, Bishop, Juggernaut, or Sabretooth on board, depending on the situation. But that's a pretty small club, and Wolfsbane ain't good enough to get in.

    On the one hand, she generates 5 green CDs which all can deal damage.  On the other, she's creating them if there aren't already 5 on the board which makes them not-unlikely to get matched away depending on where they are placed.  

    You probably never want to cast this one twice in a row.....

    I wish Go for the Throat had an animation beyond some teeth on tiles.

    I did real bad in that loaner node, lol. This character definitely isn't Sabretooth. But still I'd probably be more into her as a 4* player than I am now.

    That loaner node is brutal.
