Overall it was short and sweet. Minimal dialogue and some brand new mods.

Grimlock on the last map is probably the toughest fight. You need to kill him fast because he has a PERMANENT Burn mod!

See below for bots and mods. I forgot a couple so anyone who remembers please add (OG Megs and Sarcee). Good luck out there!

5* Generations Special Mission:

Map 4.1 - Bot Rating ~ 9k

Bludgeon (Physical Resistance)
MotorMaster (Melee Bleed)
Shockwave (Power Flow)
Soundwave (Trigger Rate)
Tantrum (Harness Power - heals with Melee)
Megatron (forgot to write it down)

Map 4.2 - Bot Rating ~11k

Arcee (I forgot to write it down)
Ratchet (Last Ditch Repair)
SideSwipe (Melee Bleed)
Mirage (Gain Armor when struck)
UM (Melee Power Burn)
G1 Bee (Evade Power Gain, Special Attack Stun)

Map 4.3 - Bot Rating ~ 13k

Jetfire (Electrophobia)
Starscream (Ranged Shock)
Ramjet (Enhanced SP1 - cannot be Blocked and hurts more)
TC (Rampage - combo of both Resistance and Attack buffs)
Cyclonus (Absorb Projectile)
Galvatron (Def Power Gain when blocking, Crit Rate enhanced)

Map 4.4 - Bot Rating ~ 16k

Prowl (Enhanced SP2 - cannot be Blocked and 20% increase)
Blaster (Fatigue - after 5 stacks your bot is stunned)
Grimlock (Permanent Burn - Passive. This will drain 25k in health in less than 45 seconds — kill him quickly of find a good debuff I guess. Not sure since it’s permanent)
Jazz (Evade Melee)
Wheeljack (Power Wipe)
OG Prime (Heavy Block 4 - Heavy Attack will no longer break a block and doing so also grants him 1.5 power bar, SP Attack 150%)

    The missing G1 bots are Windblade, Kickback, Tronus, & Nemesis Prime. Assuming you support the graphic below.

    I wonder if a Beast team or other purifiers will purify Grimlock’s burn like bleed from Harm Accelerator.

    Yes, I can confirm that a beast team does indeed purify the burn. I imagine other purifiers ought to work as well. These missions were short but fun, and the 5* missions were not too difficult.

    That means Duped Grimlock, duped Tantrum, Thundercracker... or even Mirage could purify that burn as well. EGG-CELLENT!!

    DUDE, thank you so much for capturing this! BTW, Arcee was on a critical damage mod

    Sweetness. Good to know. Curious if it shuts it down permanently or just on and off?

    Since you don't have a beast team you should use Grimlock. You need to upgrade your bots

    Debuffs don't bother me at all...it's cyclonus and galvatron that bother me...and since there's no good information here...

    While I’m sure that’s true most of the time, for this mission you need to counter that Grimlock Burn debuff. None of your bots have enough health to survive even if you don’t get hit.

    That said, my advice for Galvatron and Cyclonus is Wheeljack. It’s gonna be a long fight but still your best chance. I would go with this rhythm:

    - Save up to SP3 and enjoy the heal
    - Then next 2 SP’s are SP1 to keep them from reaching SP3 then go from there.

    I realize this assumes a lot of dancing and survival in general. You’ll be ok vs Cyclonus for sure. Galvy is building up Power so you may have to spam SP1 the whole time while also baiting the crap out of his SP. I find the SP2 easier but obviously risky. For the Galvy’s SP1, I have some success baiting right after knocking him down.

    Not too hard, nor should it have been given the rewards earned.

    Grimlock was the only weird one with his permanent burn. I didn't bring the beast squad, but Starscream null'd him up.

    As far as I noticed, it purified it permanently. I didn't see it reactivating.

    How do I beat thunder cracker easily?

    Negate his buffs - just hit him with those specific attack types. He's a snap once those are gone. My Dino made very short work of him.

    This..

    Also.. some special attacks will remove all 3 for you.

    For instance... Primal S1 uses both ranged energy and melee physical, so his S1 will take down all the buffs and resistances in one shot.

    Quick warning: If you're going to go against Mirage, FOR GOD'S SAKES USE A DUPED G1 MEGS, UM OR STARSCREAM. Those Armour Buffs will reach a point where you can't deal any damage against him, aside from Crits. This screenshot is from using my R4 4* Hot Rod against Expert difficulty Mirage, a Bot that I'm pretty good at using (taken him on RoK, he beat everyone upto Mirage). Mirage won't deal any groundbreaking damage, but unless you're ready to spend 10 minutes, he can very quickly drain you mentally.
