Same here. Level 72 and building
Anticipating that a Level 141 IM 40 is going to do some serious damage, judging by the counts I'm seeing even at Level 72. Just the aforementioned problem of amassing the AP to unload it!
I think Thor might just be one of those characters who's REALLY better at 5/5/1 or 5/5/2.
I certainly don't see myself levelling his blue skill beyond two and I doubt the extra few max levels the third point gives will be that crucial.
5/5/1 definitely feels like an optimal Model 40 build to me. At level 1, his Recharge skill is a low-cost battery for Red AP, which is perfect if I start a board with few red tiles. I have no desire to increase the cost of this skill beyond 6 AP.
I doubt I'll ever use his red or blue skills, but leveling him up is very worthwhile because his damage output and HP get insane.
Blue ability doesn't need to be changed. It is BIG damage(at higher levels) to WHOLE team + stun for current target. And IM has his recharge skill, which already at lvl 2 gives you 9 blue AP. Sou we could say that it's effective cost is already 11. So with IM 40 you have to collect exactly the same amount of blue AP as with Classic Storm's attack. It may take a little longer with yellow AP but to me IM 40's blue skill is balanced. Changing cost of IM's skill would be like changing cost of Classic Storm's blue skill from 11 to like 7 or 8.
