CHAMPION SPOTLIGHT – ROGUE

Rogue enters The Contest September 15th at 10AM PDT!

About Rogue:

Rogue’s ability to absorb the life energy and psyche of others through touch emerged in a traumatizing accident when she was a young girl, where she left the victim in a coma. Though she originally viewed her mutant powers as a curse, she mastered control of them under the tutelage of the X-Men and would become one of the most powerful mutants to date.

Recommended Masteries

  • Lesser Cruelty & Cruelty – Rogue’s signature ability “Psyche Absorption” takes Critical Damage into consideration, so the more you have, the stronger the Power and Life Steal you will get!
  • Recovery – Rogue has Life Steal on her Special 1, Recovery will maximize how much health you get.
  • Parry – With her ability to Replicate Buffs and keep those Buffs active while hitting the opponent, you will want to constantly be on the offensive side of things. Parry will help you achieve this goal.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Wolverine, Black Panther (Civil War) – Rogue is absolutely the best choice against Champions that rely on Buff because she replicates those and opponents can not trigger them while she has the specific Buff active.
  • Iron Man, Ultron, Tech Class Champions – Rogue can not steal their Buffs, a very big weakness on top of the class disadvantage when fighting against the Tech Class.
