Hopefully this is helpful to some folks out there. Shout out to my alliance mate (Sleeroy) for racing with me to finish with the Hardest path. Feedback welcome. It’s possible I made a typo or something as well.

    So Wasp is no boss this month? Well that doesn't sting enough.

    You can also put that the minibosses DOESN'T have the same mods as the other defenders are having in the same lane.

    for example Hound in 2.1 doesnt have enhanced bleeds mod, he's got range dmg and speed increase mod.

    Btw

    Tantrum is having Cycle Resist Mod.

    Just a mini Boss. Strange for sure.

    Yeh, I missed a few along the way. Thanks for noting Hound.

    Thanks @JIMMY_SAB for the notes
  • Oh god that rhinox is gonna murder me if I take my default team (prowl is my go-to scout. Free shock damage for 15% of my health a pop here I go). Thanks for the notes!

    Can say that Primal was very nasty. Duped megatron will easily finish him but mines not duped

    Try hitting his block when shield is active, and use lots of SP2

    Try Ironhide without crit rate mastery.

    I feel like they made master shockingly easy to go along with the comedic dialogue (which I haven't read but gleaned info from other posts). I actually found myself saying "is this a joke?" after taking down Scorp with less than 30 hits.

    Players are getting stronger yet master stays the same.. same difficulty level i mean
    We need another spotlight difficulty level.

    That Enhanced Bleed lane is such a bless....

    Just a small heads up. Remember to bring a bleed counter for Last ditch Repair

    I remember fighting BC on Last ditch Repair yesterday. I didn’t bring any counters yet I still jumped into the battle and fought him like an idiot. 1 stack of bleed coming from him is able to melt 10% of your health bar, 3 stacks are capable of power locking you and reducing your damage to just 2 numbers. Had to exit the stage and bring Thundercracker in to kick his ass.
