Hmm. I was originally going to hoard my CP and probably wait for Odin to go into latest but I just noticed that Thanos is in Odin's release store and I only need a couple of covers to champ him. Decisions, decisions.
I'm glad I broke my hoard on SW, Colossus, Knull. Prior to SW/Colossus there had been very few 5s worthwhile. I like Odin enough I could pull his LL store if there were a couple other decent 5s, but I'm not interested who's in there now. Hopefully the next couple 5s will be very interesting. If he'd end up being the worst of who's in the LL store down the road then I might open the current hoard I'm restocking.
I just don’t get this character. He jumps in front to take the heavy hit but even if it’s a big cascade, he just takes all the damage unless somewhere along the line, the threshold for his yellow is reached AFTER he jumps in front so he makes fortified tiles. If he’s already in front, then he just takes all the damage anyway and makes 3 fortified tiles. Yay?its quite convuluted. You want him to tank early to get the fortified tiles on the board. But after the forts are up, the last place you want him is up front. Because he only mitigates the damage when he’s NOT in front. So I guess you only want him to tank maybe 2, 3 colors max? So you have to try to plan for the next hit to tank be over the threshold for his yellow, while Odin matches his color, then hide. Without a guy who quickly fortifies 3 or more tiles, I’m not finding a team for him. Everything he can do well, is based off of him having a board with 3 or more forts on the field. And THEN, he has to NOT tank. I’m at a loss.
The way I see him, odin is not a character for to build a team for him.In pvp he will protect dangerous partner characters, in pve he will be of great support to his team against heavy damagers until the team gets enough AP for to finish it.I think it's not a character created for to survive, however in pve can be equipped yaro root and then his time support will be increased.With him it is possible to attempt challenge nodes that before him always were relying on a lucky board.
@ThaRoadWarrior the Odin/Heimdall/Shang Chi trio you mentioned in another thread is delightful destruction. Both Heimdall and Shang at 5/5/5 is a wrecking machine that keeps going on and on and on and
