Marvel Heroes Diary: Jan 24 2014 - Enter Emma Frost!

Enter Emma Frost!

As I was approaching Level 60 for Deadpool, I started having doubts about the play-style I chose for him. When I first started Marvel Heroes, I wasn't expecting to be playing several heroes at once. So, with the many melee hero options that I had, I thought of going pure-ranged with Deadpool.

With the inclusion of Odin Marks, and the bonus +1 option for each hero, each day.. A wiser choice would to have several heroes to help farm Odin Marks faster. So now, the choice I made doesn't seem so ideal. In fact, a mixed build seems more fun to play so I'm considering either re-specing him or maybe 'prestiging' him. Besides, I would like to have 1 hero prestiged. Not more than that however, there's too many heroes that I would like to try out!

So.. while I'm deciding if I'm gonna prestige Deadpool, I will need another hero to farm Odin Marks in the meantime.. Enter Emma Frost!

A very interesting character, I'm mixing her telepathy powers and summoning powers to great effect. Was a little worried about effective the mind-controlled units would be but they are more than decent if you pump enough points into the skill. Even, if it does get defeated, it respawns after a while. So no worrying about having to protect your 'minion' in heavy battles. I feel that this was very crucial in the effectiveness of the skill.

As a Witch Doctor in Diablo 3, I loved having pets alongside me, but it was very frustrating when they kept dying. So kudos to the developers for the good design on this skill.

Managed to level Colossus to 32 and used a retcon device to re-spec his skills. Just as luck seemed to be dying out, got this nice drop for Colossus in X-Defense!

His first unique! +2 to all powers is awesome stuff! The +1 Strength is also very helpful.
Will want to level Colossus to Level 60 before I prestige Deadpool so will have at least 1 hero for the upcoming level 60 areas.

Filled nearly 4 stash slots with Artifacts so had to clear out some duplicates, down to less than 2 slots now. Costume Cores are starting to pile up however. Will probably need to buy more stash slots pretty soon!

Current goals:
Deadpool - Acquire 300 Odin Marks for a Legendary Weapon
Deadpool - Reach Level 60 (Achieved!)
Reach Crafter Level 20

Current Progress
Deadpool: Level 60
Gambit: Level 23
Colossus: Level 35
Emma Frost: Level 26

Crafter: Level 18
Odin Marks: 235
