Marvel Heroes Diary: Apr 16 2014 - Taskie is Level 60!

Taskie is Level 60!

Did a new record this week.. I got Taskmaster to Level 60 in a week. I know that's snail slow to some people but that's the fastest I have done so far.

Here's how his Power Tree looks like at Level 60.

I stuck with Rendering Swings as my Basic Melee attack but decided to switch back to .45 Caliber for the Basic Ranged attack. 

No changes to the 4 powers that I chose from each of the style. I feel that they compliment each other well, giving a good variety of attacks for mobs and Bosses.

I think that's the beauty of Taskmaster. His ranged and melee powers are very balanced. A lot of the other hybrid heroes do feel that they are better equipped and lean towards one or the other. I play a hybrid Deadpool but he's a better melee fighter. Gambit, on the other hand, is better at ranged. But of course, in games like these.. I guess it all depends on the powers you choose and the items you use..

Whatever it is... Taskmaster seems to be a very balanced character. In most situations, I find that he can go melee or ranged with equal efficiency.

I am going for a fun build with him. That's why I wanted to take 1 power from each of his styles, for the Ultimate Combo. I'm having lots of fun with this build so just trying to make it as strong as it can be. 

Also decided to spend my Odin Marks on a Legendary for him, instead of Gambit. I got the Ultimate Nullifier because he has quite a number of powers boosting his Brutal Strike Chance. So, I wanted to take advantage of that.

Remember I was saying I wanted to get Magik as a team-up for Colossus? I'm having too much fun with Taskmaster so I got Spider-Man instead, who I think compliments Taskmaster very well.

Solid character he is. The Team-Ups seem to be making the game easier than it should be, but I'm not going to complain.

I'd like to do a more detailed Taskmaster Build guide soon, let me know in the comments below if you wanna see that.
