As I played through Marvel Heroes, moving forward on Achievements, Legendaries, Cakes, and earning Omegas, a funny thing happened. I finally got to 4,000 points.
So I relogged onto Captain America and redistributed Omegas. Spin Tech; Melt Face; Warpath; 1 Pt Sabertooth, 9 pts Frenzy, and 1 pt Dazzler. Then, it was time to make the attempt.
- Try #1. I forgot how to play the Cosmic Trial and died in 30 seconds.
- Try #2. Easily took out Madame Hydra but barely got to Red Skull.
- Try #3 – 7. Ran out of time to kill Red Skull.
Perhaps the Omega selection is the problem. I couldn’t really see where Dazzler was making any impact on the fight. Let’s remove it; get another Sabertooth point; and put points into my favorite cheap damage booster, Extremis Electricity. I also realized that if I was taking out Madame Hydra every time, she’s probably not the one to use the Ultimate Power on, so instead I’d wait til Red Skull.
Try #8 resulted in a good hit with the Ultimate Power, and Red Skull with 20% left of his health. Pretty close.
Try #9 was looking pretty poor. The Ultimate Power fired at the exact instant that Red Skull threw his shield up, but I did manage to keep a lot of the power onto his Robot Guardian. I was sure it was done……. but to my surprise, with less than 10 seconds remaining, Red Skull went down ! Cap has now passed the Cosmic Trial.
Next big decision is who to try for next. My instinct is Invisible Woman, or Hawkeye – it’s an important decision because Blessing of Hela is very expensive, to say nothing of acquiring the right artifacts. For now, though, I’ll think about it. Got a suggestion for me ? Comment !
