IceIXIceIX ADMINISTRATORS Posts: 3,370 Site Admin
"Hailing from the Scottish highlands, Wolfsbane discovered her mutant ability to transform into a wolf at an early age. After a troubled upbringing, she was rescued and brought to the Xavier Institute where she learned to control her powers. As a founding member of the New Mutants and a member of both X-Force and X-Factor, Wolfsbane always looks out for her pack."

Note: As per usual, numbers may shift a little on final release.

    Howard the duck 2.0!

    Seems cool with cheap powers and invisibility. Seems like all 3 powers would be great at 5, so I imagine redistributing skills based on who you team her with. I'm assuming the "max" numbers are to prevent okoye and gritty abuse?

    I think that's just level 70 vs. level 270 numbers.

    Correct. 270 isn't really technically "max" either given Champion levels, but close enough.

    I’m going 5,5,3 as I am not a believer in the CD meta.
  • zodiac339zodiac339 Posts: 1,927 Chairperson of the Boards
    5/5/3 with Gritty. 5/3/5 with Thorkoye.

    3/5/5 seems like the solution.  Black is the most expensive, can't be spammed, and can still provide invisibility at 3 covers.  The other 2 powers are decent and cheaper.

    She has a solid kit, but will be quite squishy at just 10k health.  And, as always with a new 4* release, what is the point with almost 100 competing characters in the tier.  All new 4*s are either relevant because of unavoidable passive effects (bishop, worthy), or superfluous.
  • bluewolfbluewolf Posts: 3,388 Chairperson of the Boards
    I assume her health is relatively low since she can go invisible (and cheaply)......
  • ErikPeterErikPeter Posts: 712 Critical Contributor
    Wow, that purple is some serious damage per AP. 15k for 7 in PvE. And the synergy; She makes 4 strikes at a time (Kitty says thanks), 5 CDs for CD trigger shenanigans (C4rol says hello, Coulson/5Eye say goodbye). And hell, invisibility. Very solid.

    Cool! I hope we eventually get a costume where she gets her "real" hair one day!

    I’m kinda hoping this means D3 has insight that New Mutants is going to be surprise-released in Disney+ on Day 1 :)
  • ThaRoadWarriorThaRoadWarrior Posts: 3,352 Chairperson of the Boards
    I heard that New Mutants movie was on thin ice, which is a mega bummer. it seemed like a fun take on it to make it a horror movie.

    This is another very strong, but non-meta, character who probably gets buried on veteran rosters. Excellent set of powers, though. Recent 4's have been amazing. 
  • MrEd95MrEd95 Posts: 152 Tile Toppler
    I guess my hopes to get Elsa Bloodstone in the game will have to continue to wait.

    looks good though

    They kind of have to be in order to have a chance of registering with players.

    She's 4* #87 so you need to think that you might want her more than the 86 people you already built, or are chasing to varying degrees.  Or at minimum think she would be fun to use.  Making slow, middle of the tier characters won't do the developers or game much good.

    I could bring up the dilution issue but why bother, there's no stopping the train.  We're below 1% already.

    #powercreepisreal

    EDIT:  She should 100% have an X-Man affiliation based on canon.  This version of the character with these powers only got them just before joining the X-men (she later quit) and it's all pretty recent in the comics.  But obviously giving someone who makes strikes for 6AP and can go invisible is a bit of a pain when run with Gritty, and making her an X-Man would just compound the unbalanced-ness of that situation.

    cheap multi-tap powers are definitely all the rage now it would seem.

    I like that she puts Invis on black - it's always cool when characters do things on non-traditional colors.
  • HoundofShadowHoundofShadow Posts: 2,194 Chairperson of the Boards
    I wonder how she is good without Thorokoye and Gritty.

    Her agressive black attack will be disabled after you fired it once unless you can remove her invisible tile asap.

    Her cheap red spams 4 strike tiles, which is good.

    Her cheap purple puts 5 Green CDs, with each going off one turn after another, up to 5 turns. So, it will take 5 turns to resolve the last cd.

    It's a 5/5/3 for me.

    4* Magik and Human Torch could be cool to team with with those fortifying and strikes spamming.
