    I just champed 5Magik from the Limbo store. Is there a consensus best build yet?

    I would probably run her 553.

    For her purple the damage reduction from supernatural enemies is not game changing and the aoe is pretty good. You don’t lose any ap destruction either.

    Do we know, yet, if she's working as intended?

    There's not been a peep from the devs.
    Even though no doubt "someone" will dig out a post from the previous dev crew from 2016 to prove something.

    Wonderful. It's not like her store just opened or anything.... Oh, wait...

    I’m guessing she is working as intended and that’s why they nerfed her. Her black is her best powers and it’s up to the user to decide between red and purple.

    Thanks for the feedback. I think I'll try her at 553 and take her for a spin in Sim with Okoye and ?

    If she's not working as intended, then the dev will "unnerf" or even buff her because they "nerfed" her based on wrong info. You've to pull anyway.

    Whether I agree with your logic or not, I'm uncomfortable making assumptions about what this dev team is thinking.

    TBH, I don't think it matters. If she gets nerfed then there will be chance she will get adjusted down the road. And boosted she is still good.
    It is unlikely she makes a dent on a competitive PvE roster. She is fun to play character so as long as you don't mind hits she is good. Then when you want to get to 1200 switch to something faster or annoying.

    Thanks for the morning chuckle. Glad I didn’t just take a sip of coffee when I read that.

    After what the dev has done for the game so far, if they still can't gain your trust, no one will.

    Given that they have already revised her between announcement and release I think implication is that she is now working as intended. But I wouldn't bet my cp hoard on that.

    As for build I think 5/3/5 for most uses makes sense given how strong the competing red options are, but there is a case to be made for a 3/5/5 build that goes for maximum permanent damage.

    Welcome to the Internet. There's donuts in the room over there. Don't drink the coffee though it's ****.

    Tried several combos that kind of work but they are slow. Magik/Okoye + Emma and then + Col and then + Apoc. They are all just "fine". Nothing worth writing home about yet. Will keep tinkering.

    Did you run Wanda Okoye/Wanda Apoc yet?

    Nice call. Wanda Okoye worked quite well. Played against champed Elektra / Crystal / SC. Concentrated on matching the demon tiles first, team ups second and everything else third. Able to beat them quite easily.

    Wanda Apoc not as lucky. Played vs Abigal / Kitty / Dormammu. Kitty ate up the tiles and lost fairly unexpectedly.

    If it's working as intended, I will send a ticket to CS because finally I got a fatty HM and I want a 65 % bonus against villains playing with wong.
    (And I won't ask my PX having a 181% match damage reduction if playing with colossus and kingping, because right now colossus mach damage reduction is not working, kingping match damage reduction neither, PX neither).
