Here’s my guide for Act 1.1.5 “Pathways” in Marvel Contest of Champions.
General Thoughts: This is the first quest where you can actually switch paths. While I am listing the paths as left and right, there are no rules that say you can’t mix things up. So if you’re just looking for initial completion and you want to skip the first left path, but then take the second left path, go for it!
This is the first opportunity I had on this account to utilize the Parry Mastery. You’ll have at least 1 Mastery Point available by now, so make sure it is allocated to Parry. Practice your well-timed blocks. Once you learn to consistently Parry-Stun your opponent, the game will get a lot easier.
