    Damn, I wish I had seen this a week ago. And I looked at this thread probably 20-30 times over the past week but always stuck to the meat and potatoes in the first two pages, lol.

    Sorry, I'll own that. I should have put it in big letters on the top of the first post.My bad, Once the spam train started rolling I just kinda opened the forum from time to time with the Steam browser during loading screens :3

    Naw man, you’re good. This thread is truly amazing, top to bottom. As many times as I’ve advised people to at least skim entire guide threads because there’s always good info throughout, I should have followed my own advice.

    - Removed the tag stating alternate skins don't count for feat progress (they all work now).
    - Updated Guy Gardner, Harley Quinn, and Steel as well as the Two Handed section to reflect the changes made to Two Handed.

    Still haven't set aside time to update this further (predominately due to the critical aspects being done). When I do though, will it be more convenient for users if I move it to Steam like the Might guide and simply keep a link here + update posts? This Guide (almost) fits on the forum without issue but I've had to limit some links due to the character limit. The Steam presentation would be sharper and it would be easier to browse (everything on one page + table of contents always on the right side, though, so I'm on the fence.

    Bump for LPVE week. Also a reminder, since I already see people saying they're gonna spam TP, Trigon's Prison is a pretty bad spam map. Done right, Hall of Doom is the best map by faaaaar, followed by League of Assassin's Stronghold, with the only caveat being you don't wanna be pugging it with queue randoms.

    I tried out my first attempts ever with Legends PVE last night and had fun. I was running Sciencells over and over and noticed that Batman is locked for me. I thought this event made them all unlocked? One of the feats is to play as him.

    I unlocked the Classic Batman at the kiosk on the watchtower and obviously this isn't the same. Any ideas how to unlock him?
  8. AV Loyal Player

    All of the Batman skins are the same in terms of function and they all grant credit for Batman + Male + Hero + Knight. The one that's locked was a limited edition. There's a limited edition Supergirl costume that also stays locked.

    All alternate skins count for all feats now. The only "alternate" skin that's functionally different than it's main skin is Arkham Asylum Joker, who has a slightly different loadout.

    TP's Map is shorter than HoD, so assuming add skip,
    and Barrels, TP is faster.
  11. AV Loyal Player

    Lol... Just...No... Not even a little. Also... There are no barrels in TP. HoD can be consistently done in 6min, as covered in detail. The same group in TP likely wouldn't break 9min consistently (and would likely be well over after final cs). Not to mention the TP bosses all spam block & CC and are extremely annoying on certain characters. Even doing a run that fast in TP is luck dependent and inconsistent (requires pinning Sin and hoping WW/Circe don't get stuck... Which they do), and there's so much cutscene time that there's a pretty firm limit on how long TP takes. Also, 6min HoD only requires 1 person to be doing perfect DPS with their character whereas TP with 4 perfect DPS is still a slog. Even a mediocre group doing HoD properly will always have a much faster time than they would in TP.

    TP is one of the worst LPVE maps to spam. The only reason to do TP over HoD, LoA, A51, or even Oa (which has the same benefit as TP with the added benefit of not requiring constant attention) is that a good player can forcibly drag pugs through it via cs tele to maintain group buff and solo it almost as fast as a perfect group can do it (which, again, isn't very fast either way). Otherwise, it's a hot garbage map. The reason I don't have a guide for TP up is because people should straight up not be spamming it during 10x if they value their time and spamming TP over HOD would cost a player 50-100% more man-hours overall. A player would have to be doing the other maps mentioned completely wrong for TP to have a chance.

    That’s actually the only reason I do TP lol. Cause I can just go to coma state which I usually do when doing lpve and still be ok on time lol.

    But yea other than just doing a braindead time it’s not a good map.

    Great guide!
    By any chance could you add general list of all characters from best to worst?
  15. AV Loyal Player

    With the exception of Cheetah and Doctor Fate, both of whom are designed more with PVP in mind, they're all close enough it doesn't really matter and all have well rounded tool kits. Also Arkham asylum Joker isn't as good as vanilla Joker. But yeah all of them are capable of topping the scorecard when performed to their max.
  16. Pingvinozavr Dedicated Player

    Then I dont't get that part:
    or that:
    Also based on previous quote it appears there are better picks in the category i.e Wonder Girl over Donna Troy
  17. AV Loyal Player

    You can still do well with those ones though. Cheetah and Fate are major uphill battles for performance where those ones are just more knowledge/skill intensive or complex than other characters in the same family (predominately because the Light family is overall extremely simple and strong) or have annoying quirks like Saint Walker. If people like them they can still do fine with them but the other Light options are DIRT simple (press one button > repeat much of the time). Can still dominate with them whereas topping with Fate/Cheetah is more an indictment of the rest of the group.

    The Truth options (other than Cheetah) are all pretty comparable and really come down to personal preference.

    Have to look at characters overall. Eg like how Atrocitus and Faust are AoE specialists with the latter having quite weak ST but making up for it by instagibbing large groups of adds.

    An overall tier list isn't really possible since every map is different but I do indicate for (most) maps what people might want to consider when picking characters.

    FYSA they broke barrels (I'm guessing when they adjusted the barrel damage in ISe STU).
  19. fredohmaha Active Player

    Curious if there’s any information about Gorilla Grodd. I saw him listed here as a character but couldn’t find him at the Exobyte vendor in the House of Legends. Looking into it further it looks like he was announced several years ago but did he never make it into the game? Was about to buy Flash and start the long grind with him so having an alternate Flash-related character would certainly be appreciated.
  20. Domana Well-Known Player

    He was never added, sadly. The entire Flash family grind is just Flash.
