Chapter Guide – Act 4.2.5 – Dark Presence – Level 45

Summoners!

Here’s my guide for Act 4.2.5 “Dark Presence” in Marvel Contest of Champions.

General Thoughts:

For this chapter you have Gambler’s Fate to deal with as a Global Node. This isn’t a terribly difficult node, but it’s random so you never know what is going to happen. It’s good to have Willpower active so you can heal from the random Debuffs.

During my run through Act 4.2.5 I reached Level 45 and unlocked Lesser Precision.

If you have questions about the basic attack moves and combos in Marvel Contest of Champions, please check out my MCOC 101: Combos guide.

Best Champs: Any

Restrictions: None

Global Node: Gambler’s Fate (Captain America)

Boss: Scarlet Witch

Boss Notes:
Resonance Cascade
Shatter
Critical
Health

Personally I used a 5-Star Rank 4 Captain America Infinity War for this fight. I recommend a heavy-hitter to end it quickly or a Poison-Immune champion if you don’t have a brute force option. Thing is immune to Nullify, making him another great choice.

    1. Yes I do! Just keep working on the fundaments. If you can Parry well you’re going to be able to handle 90% of Act 4. You don’t need the best champs (yet) its more about learning the game mechanics.

      If you aren’t already in an alliance, join one so you get some Glory to buy rank up materials!
