Omega items are supposed to be put in down the line as a new carrot to grind for (that will also replace uniques on PC), but how well that will be implemented remains to be seen.



No Uru or upgrades on console. The Uru's are kind of replaced by one of the vendors, who offers buffs on gear you can grind for that are similar to the PC versions enchants.

Thanks for the info.

No uniques? Only level 70 legendary? No Uru?

I kind of want to download this version now just to see how different it is.

It's somehow simpler and more complicated all at the same time.

Relics have been reduced to 100 from 1000, but now there are "complete" relics and an entirely new relic currency.

Uru and the enchanter are gone, as well as raids and raid items, but there's 4 entirely new vendors to level with entirely new crafting mechanics. They added a tutorial to the open beta, but it's not exactly thorough.

You don't actually want to donate items to vendors on console, you want to sell everything, use the credits to buy research crafting mats (that replenish every 30 minutes) and turn those in to one of the four vendors to buy materials that level up the other three. This also gets you blueprints that will let you craft some of the PC's event items, like the Armor artifacts. Currently only one of the three vendors has these blueprints in the game though.

There are still at least six different currencies in the game, and at least a dozen entirely new crafting materials.

Uniques are gone, leaving only cosmic items, but instead of physical/energy/mental, there's about 13 different damage types like guns, fire, ice, magic, and claw.

All patrols except for Midtown are removed. Terminals are still in. Danger room is in, and gives merits, but I didn't see at a glance what the merits are actually used for. There is no danger room vendor, unless I missed him entirely.

Some heroes have had their powers retooled specifically on the console version, a lot of cases for the worse. Synergies are still in but many of them have been changed. Bonus XP for leveling heroes has been cut in half. Splinter prices are more expensive and shuffled around. No level 80 legendaries. Another difficulty added before you get to cosmic, and at least one new rarity color that doesn't need to exist. Also it runs poorly.

Will there be another reset or will character delopment stay as it is?

If it was the closed beta and you unlocked Deadpool using eternity splinters then your progress has been reset, but you will get enough splinters to buy one character after the tutorial.

If it was the open beta period then there is no reset incoming so you will still have deadpool forever.

Those changes are crazy. I understand not having the raid in yet, things like that, but some of those sound Byzantine and arbitrary.

So it looks like Gaz changed the Prestige system, basically taking away all the benefits you'd get on the PC.

- there's no XP boost. *Correction, you do get a box that includes and XP boost.
- there's no bonus costume.
- they changed the coloring of you name to little hash marks placed by your name, essentially taking away the bragging rights one would get if they Prestige.

So the only benefit for choosing to Prestige are two trophies.

The game is extremely easy, more so with certain heroes, on the base difficulty level. You have to complete trails in order to unlock harder difficulties.

Kind of. The biggest difference is that you are only in control of 1 hero, instead of 4.

Trying to get into this on PS4 but the performance is really killing it for me right now. Everything feels so clunky and slow, and nothing I'm seeing is really justifying that.

Go to one of those teleports and choose the TRIAL option then if you finish it you can bum up the difficulty of everything up a notch. It comes with a 75% bonus XP too :)

Just know that the Heroic difficulty is ridiculously easy as well, outside of the final boss fights with Dr. Doom and Loki. Super Heroic is too tough for anyone that's at a low level, so you'll get through most/all of the campaign before you can even handle that Trail (with the exception of a few OP heroes).

As soon as you hit level 11 you can play the heroic trial (is single player only) to unlock heroic difficulty for all missions, which in turn unlocks super heroic trial to unlock super heroic difficulty etc.

I found normal piss easy like you (playing in party of 2), upping it to heroic is more difficult for us for sure (we just started chapter 4). I have not tried super heroic trial yet to unlock next difficulty.

I'm still stuck on Magik's Cosmic trial.

I started Spider-Man and got him to level 60 and I can't even beat his Super Heroic trial.

Feel like I need to pick someone easy next just to have someone to beat the Cosmic trial and be able to farm Cosmic patrol.

From what I've read, outside a few heroes like Dr. Strange, Iceman, and Scarlet Witch, you'll need to have the proper gear to beat the Cosmic trial.

Yeah, which seems like it'll be almost impossible without either a set of Cosmic items already or a fairly maxed out legendary item.

The trial leading to the current endgame makes this acceptable for now, but those Cosmic patrols are going to be really empty.

I'm currently leveling up Daredevil and he's kind of eh so far.

My first try of cosmic trial with Kitty was going so well I got careless and only had Skull left down to under 20% when he one shotted me. Since then I can't even beat Mandarin.

No. Can't abandon quests either which sucks if you get stuck on a quest and can't find a certain boss for one of the quests.

For cosmic trial:

I beat Cosmic with Jean Grey with all purples etc., No legendary. Not sure if its suppose to be easy or not with her. It did take me 10 tries or so.

I did use a guide for skills on marvelheroes.info as I had no idea what skills to use.

Also I read that you should try and find critical and brutal damage increase helps.

Also don't go all glass cannon which I initially did. I went more like 50/50 on offense / defense and that seemed to help me beat the trial.

Save your ultimate for the last 5 or 6 mobs that are with red skull I found helped.

Leveling up different heroes for the synergies and since there's not much end game content yet. Spidey, Punisher, Daredevil at 60, with Rocket Raccoon at 52.

Spider-Man is a blast to play just as he was on PC, for anyone wondering. I suspect he's somewhat undertuned in damage, but his animations are fantastic.

Rocket is also every bit as fun as I remembered. I really want to play Blade, but I'll keep working through the heroes from the packs first. Either Iron Fist or Star-Lord next.

A Gazillion response in the official forums just implied the console players are too stupid to figure out the prestige color system and that's why we got the ugly badge in place of it.

How out of touch those guys can be really ?

Same here, so far I got, 60 Hulk, 60 Daredevil, 60 Spider Man, 60 Blade, 50 War Machine, 50 Kitty Pride, 50 Cpt American, 50 Black widow, 50 colossus.

Cpt america was a slog, he's squishy and average damage output, on the other hand Blade blazes through the content....
