STRENGTHS

Debuff Shrug off:

  • Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen) has some super easy on demand debuff shrugging for any non-damaging debuffs that come his way.

Bleed Damage:

  • Master your combo and release massive Bleed Damage with Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen)’s Special 2 to rid yourself of any Bleedable opponent in your path.

Combo Manipulation:

  • A very unique ability similar to Squirrel Girl, Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen) has the ability to consume his own Combo. Use this to your advantage to shrug off debuffs with Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen)’s base abilities, or better manage nodes like Counter Tactics!

WEAKNESSES

Anti-Purify mechanics:

  • Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen) is going to have to be careful in the wrong match-up, going into a fight against Omega Red or Apocalypse he won’t be able to shrug off his non-damaging Debuffs and gain his bonus abilities.

Ability Accuracy Reduction:

  • Similar to Anti-Purify, Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen) will have to be careful against foes that reduce his ability accuracy as it can make his shrug off abilities fail.

The following Stats and Abilities are based on a Rank 5, Level 65, 5-Star Champion

ABILITIES: 

Entering the Fight 

  • The Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen) gains an indefinite Passive Combo Shield, preventing his Combo Meter from resetting when Struck.

Fight Start 

  • Base Regeneration Rate is set at 40% instead of the normal 100%
  • Immune to all effects that modify Regeneration Rate, except Poison.

Developer’s Note: Due to Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen) being able to sit on a Non-Damaging Debuff nearly the entire fight we found he was just too powerful with the willpower mastery. Due to this we’ve lowered his base regen rate. He will still benefit a ton from Willpower but won’t sit on a free heal the entire fight.

Murdock Boy – Combo Meter 15 or Lower

  • The unbreakable spirit of Battlin’ Jack Murdock grants the following:
  • When inflicted with a non-damaging Debuff, one of each non-damaging Debuff is Purified after 0.50 seconds. Each time this ability triggers, the Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen) gains +5 Combo Meter. This ability goes on Cooldown for 2 seconds once activated.
  • Passive +3150 Physical Resistance against Basic Attacks.

Sticks Apprentice – Combo Meter 16 or More

  • The assassin training of Stick grants the following:
  • +900 Critical Rating.
  • Attacks Reduce the opponent’s Defensive Ability Accuracy by 65%.
  • +603.5 Attack Rating for each Non-Damaging Debuff on the Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen). This bonus decreases by 5% for each additional Debuff.
  • When Struck, 1 Combo Meter is lost.

Heavy Attacks

  • The first hit spends 10 Combo Meter grant a 100% chance to gain a stacking Cruelty Buff, increasing Critical Damage Rating by +430.12 for 14 seconds.

Special 1  – Condemn

  • 100% chance to boost Critical Rating by 700 for 15 seconds.

Special 2 – Swift Justice

  • Each hit immediately loses any Combo Meter gained.

  • At the end of the attack, gain a Rage Debuff with no effect, lasting 12 seconds. When this Debuff ends, it is replaced with a Fury Buff, granting +1931.2 Attack rating for 25 seconds.

Developer’s Note: Do your best to combo this with Daredevil (Hell’s Kitchen)’s Heavy Attack and you can deal some massive damage. The sweet spot for making sure you pop yourself into Murdock Boy and shrug off the Rage for an instant Fury is 30 combo or lower when you launch your Special 2.

Special 3 – Deliverance

Developer’s Note: A great tool for long fights, Throw an Sp3 and forget about it. Reap the benefits of some great bonus damage when combined with the fury from Sp2 and Cruelty from Heavy attacks.

Signature Ability – Sinner or Saint

  • Murdock Boy – Exiting this mode has a 100% chance to grant a stacking 17 second Rage Debuff with no effect.
  • Stick’s Apprentice – While in this mode, attacks reduce the amount of damage the opponent can deal with Passive effects when they’re being struck by 100% for 0.20 seconds.
