Marvel Heroes Diary: Apr 11 2014 - Waiting for Team-Ups!

Waiting for Team-Ups!

So, it's that time of the week again on Marvel Heroes.. Friday night over here in Singapore and ample time to spend on Marvel Heroes but.... It's server downtime while we wait for the latest patch.

It's not exactly a bad thing actually.. Because for as long as I can remember, the game has been adding substantial content to the game every week. 

Since the start of 2014, every last Friday of the month has seen a new hero added to the playable list. The rest of the weeks have been just as eventful. With drop rates being boosted on almost every weekend and some form of entertaining content being added every now and then, its been hard to get away from this game.

But this weekend is going to be something special.. Team-Ups are coming to Marvel Heroes! You can now purchase support heroes that will be able to fight alongside your hero. Each team-up hero will have their own set of gear and passives. That's the short description.. For the long description, check out the FAQ page for all the detailed info.

First 4 team-up heroes will be Spider-Man, Falcon, Firestar and Magik. First purchase for me will be Magik and I'm pairing her up with who else but Colossus.

I have also been looking for a suitable Team-up for my current Hero, Taskmaster. I have never heard of this guy until I saw him in this game so I made a thread here to get some clues on who would be ideal. I'm not solely looking at the game-play aspect but also at the Marvel history on who Taskmaster has teamed-up with in the comics... And it looks like Deadpool and other Mercenaries will be my best bet. So really hoping 1 of those guys get added to the Team-up roster.

Speaking of Taskmaster, I have rotated among his powers several times already. Yet, I'm not entirely convinced of what I have chosen so far. I'll have to keep working on that.

With the 2 basics; Rendering Swings and Dual Wield, I am still sticking to the 1 power from each type. Just switched it to the following:

Captain - Rebounding Shield
Archer - Tear Gas Arrow
Devil - Cyclone Club
Spider - Web Cocoon

Current goals:
Deadpool: Level 60 (Prestige Level 5)
Taskmaster: Level 60

Deadpool's Legendary: Rank 5
Earn 300 Odin Marks for Taskmaster's Legendary

Current Progress
Deadpool: Level 29 (Prestige Level 3)
Gambit: Level 60
Colossus: Level 60
Emma Frost: Level 42
Nightcrawler: Level 31
Doctor Strange: Level 25
Taskmaster: Level 55

Deadpool's Legendary: Rank 4
Colossus' Legendary: Rank 5
Odin Marks: 230
