CHAMPION SPOTLIGHT – GHOST RIDER

GHOST RIDER enters The Contest October 27th at 10AM PDT!

About Ghost Rider:

Tricked by the demonic being Mephisto into selling his soul to save a loved one, stunt cyclist Johnny Blaze soon found himself bonded to the Spirit of Vengeance, a being of almost unlimited power from Hell itself. With the power to control Hellfire as well as his mystical Hell Cycle and Hell Chains, Ghost Rider has turned against Mephisto’s purpose and instead uses his newfound abilities to protect the innocent and cast judgment upon the wicked.

Recommended Masteries

Parry

  • Landing a Heavy Attack is paramount to gaining Ghost Rider’s Life Steal effect. Grabbing this Mastery will allow you to Stun your opponent long enough to land a Heavy Attack.

Mystic Dispersion

  • Ghost Rider’s Fate Seal on Special 1, when timed correctly, can allow him to strip away the opponent’s Buff effects and gain a large burst of power. This can allow him to quickly build up to multiple Judgment effects before hitting the big Damnation to finish the fight.

Match-Ups

Strong Match-Ups: This is a list of Champions that Ghost Rider performs well against.

  • Gamora, Drax – Ghost Rider’s Bleed Immunity and class advantage puts him over these Champions easily.
  • Kang, Wolverine, Wolverine (X-23) These Champions rely heavily on their power meter, which Ghost Rider can strip away with his Special 2 Judgment. Additionally, his Damnation power locks and Heal Blocks these Champions, giving him a strong upper hand.
  • Groot, Black Panther (Civil War), Venom – These Champions rely on their Buff effects to do well in any given fight. With Ghost Rider’s Fate Seal on his Special 1 Judgment, and Damnation to Fate Seal them, he can lock down these Champions very well.

Weak Match-Ups: This is a list of Champions that Ghost Rider performs poorly against.

  • Red Hulk, Captain America – In addition to a class advantage over Ghost Rider, these Champions do not rely on Buff effects for their damage output and are not hit as strongly by Damnation or Fate Seal.
