I've been using my newly champed XPool along with Carol/C&D (Carol and XPool at 5/3/5).Match Red whenever possible and let Apoc match Black with gives more Red (thanks Carol) to get rid of the AP drain. The extra Black from C&D means you get rid of his count downs easily too.I usually finish him off with an XPool Red (15K) + Carol Black (13K) though round 7 with extra damage from C&D Purple/Yellow or XPools Purple as required (depends on how many strikes you have out from Carols Blacks).What's nice is XPool heals from his Reds so he essentially heals all match damage with 1 Red cast so often I've taken next to no damage.1 Health Pack through round 7 when once I couldn't get one of Apocs black count downs before it expired.KGB
And to add insult to injury so to speak, the sub nodes are all required. Awful event.
Does anyone know how the boss node scoring works given Apocalypse's Rejuvenation power? There were a number of people in my Alliance with (very basic 1* - 2* rosters) and 0 scores, and I'm trying to figure out whether they were joining and not participating or just failing due to the increasing difficulty of the nodes over time. Previous events awarded "partial credit" on failed boss attempts for damage done, but Apocalypse requires you to defeat the Four Horsemen before you can do damage (assuming you can't down him in a single turn).
