For Gwenpool, almost any Iso-8 class can be used. She doesn’t cast any Debuffs on enemies (other than having the ability to flip positives into negatives with her Special), so Skirmisher isn’t much of a choice.
Healer also doesn’t fit her because she simply doesn’t heal. However, high HP can make her Regenerations quite usable. We don’t know her Speed, so Healer is out of the question for now.
As for the Raider Iso-8 class, it is the best for the Cosmic Crucible. She will play first in the New Warrior team and opens with a Special that hits 5 different targets. As a Raider, she will have a great chance to make several Criticals. Firestar plays right after her (as Striker), attacks the Vulnerable target, and after the follow-up attack gives Offense Up on one New Warrior. If that New Warrior is Cloack – GG. So now that we know her Speed and order of play in the New Warrior team, we can freely say – the best Iso-8 for Gwenpool is Raider!
Striker is (of course) to increase her damage and more importantly with Striker, she will grant additional Defense Up and additional Barrier with every attack against an enemy with Vulnerability.
Fortifier is to keep her alive as long as possible – after all, Gwenpool is a Brawler acting protector (with Taunt). She will already have a decent amount of Barrier after using basic attacks or follow-ups, so additional Barrier can only be beneficial. However, that granted Barrier from the Fortifier class, will be lower than the Barrier gained from Striker bonus attacks.
Our 1st Iso-8 option for Gwen is definitely Raider and the 2nd Striker.
P – Passive ability
U – Ultimate ability
S – Special ability
B – Basic ability
This is a crucial upgrade, not only for Gwen but for the entire New Warrior team. On Spawn, apply +1 Evade (+2 in CC Offense) to herself and all New Warrior allies. Now we come to the most important thing – on CC Offense, gains +50% Accuracy for himself and all New Warrior allies.
Together with Passive from Firestar, Gwenpool will give New Warriors +100% Accuracy, which will be enough for them to bypass the Charged mechanic from Spider Weaver and thus become a hard counter for the Tangled Web team.
Upgrading Ultiamte will bring significantly increased damage, and in the Cosmic Crucible Offense, the entire New Warrior will receive essential buffs: Safeguard, Defense Up, and Speed Up. It is clear why improving this ability is one of the most important (it is just for CC Offense but essential for that game mode).
Special on max will gain Immunity and fill Gwenpool Speed Bar by 70% (CC Offense). Damage to primary and secondary targets will be doubled. Just like Ultimatum, the Special upgrade is essential for Cosmic Crucible Offense, but it’s so good that it shouldn’t be ignored, even if it’s just for Offense in that game mode. Gweenpol and her New Warrior team is definitely a team specializing in Offense in CC.
Gwenpool is a girl who is living the dream of every Marvel fan. She was drawn into the Marvel Universe after being unable to find a job after graduation (amazing isn’t it?), where she uses her vast knowledge of Marvel Heroes and Villains and their strength and advantages to become a superhero. Her super-power is to shift between our realm and Marvel Universe and to use Comic quotes to trigger abilities and powers described in comics. If you think it through, her powers are actually almost limitless, and the only boundaries she can have is if she misses a new Marvel Comics.
Her original name is Gwen Pool, but after making acquaintance with Deadpool and being presented by her moniker, she will become known as Gwenpool. In MSF, Gwenpool is a Brawler on the New Warriors team, and like most of them (except Deathpool), she has the City trait. Her highest stats are Health and Resistance. She will work great in her New Warrior team, mostly because she will add extra Charge to characters like Deathpool and Firestar every time they play. Also, the extra Accuracy combined with Firestar passively allows the New Warriors team to be a hard counter to Tangled Web in CC
Basic – Quick Shot
With her Basic kick, Gwen will do valid damage. If a target has a Barrier, she will remove it and Barrier herself. If the target had a Barrier, Gwenpool placed a Barrier of 30% of her maximum Health on herself. While the target was without Barrier, Gwen will set a Barrier of 15% of her maximum Health on herself. After hit, it will cast Defense Up (2 turns) on a random New Warrior ally that does not have Defense Up. A more than solid Basic, with efficient damage and the ability to neutralize the opponent’s Barriers.
ISO – 8/Counter Attack/Assists
Everything is the same as Basic, with a bit less damage.
Special – A Cut Above
The Special It costs 7 Energy and can be used at the start of the fight. Gwenpool attacks the primary and 4 adjacent targets, flipping 3 positive effects to negative on each target. She will also gain Taunt and apply 3 Deflect to herself and all New Warrior allies. In Cosmic Crucible Offense, she will flip Stealth on each target and gain Immunity. She will also fill her Speed Bar by 70%. This attack can Chain to Stealth targets, and Gwen gets +1000% Focus.
The counterattack breaks the chain, but if Gwen is with 3 or more New Warriors attack cannot be countered. This is a great move to open the fight, we need to see how much Speed Gwenpool will have, but we believe she will be fast. With her Special, she protects her team and debuffs opponents at the same time.
Ultimate – Rocket Jump
Energy Cost: 6/8 – Gwenpool will attack all enemies with heavy damage and remove all negative effects from herself and all New Warrior allies. In Crucible Offense, she will apply Safeguard, Defense Up, and Speed Up to herself and all New Warrior allies. Characters killed by this attack cannot be revived (CC Offense). Similar to Special, her Ultimate also buffs the entire team, at least in CC Offense. This time it even removes all negativities from her team, so this is a great way to get rid of awkward debuffs. Not to mention the damage, which is excellent, and allows Gwen to be as efficient as Kang in CC (she cannot prevent Revive outside of CC)
Passive – Editorial Sight
On Spawn She will apply +1 Evade up to a maximum of 5 on herself and all New Warrior Allies (+2 Evade in CC Offense). On a chargeable New Warrior ally turn, she will apply +1 Charged up to a maximum of 5 on that ally (+1 additional Charged will be applied in CC Offense). When she drops below 50% of her Max Health, if has Taunt, she will heal for 40% of her Max Health, gain Stealth, and clear Taunt. Gwenpool will provide +50% Armor for herself and the New Warrior team. In CC Offense, the New Warrior team will get +40% Max Health and +50% Accuracy through her Passive.
Along with Firestar, Gwenpool will give +100% Accuracy to New Warriors, making them very good to use against the Tangled Web team. She will also help the New Warriors a lot defensively with all Evades, Deflects, Defense Ups, and Safeguard. She’s actually a mix of Brawler and Protector, which makes her unique. On the other hand, if you want to get the most out of New Warrior, Gwenpool is a necessary link in that chain.
Deathpool and Firestar will function much better and be much more dangerous with Gwen on the team. Every time it’s their turn to play, she will passively cast 1 more Charged (2 in CC Offense).
For Deathpool that means that he will have maximum charges in his second turn if he opens the fight with his ultimate in CC. Being able to one-shot literally anyone in the second turn of combat can only be matched by Apocalypse’s empowered attack – it is too OP even for my taste, because with this, in theory-craft, New Warriors can counter any existing team in MSF roster (only in Cosmic Crucible).
Also, Firestar will have 3 granted passive attacks against the target with the highest Speed in the first turn, and 2 passive attacks in every turn after that which crucially changes Firestar’s ISO-8 class priority for Cosmic Crucible. I was criticized that my explanations being too complicated for average players so I will try to keep it simple – Firestar needs Raider so she can build her Charges with her basic attacks and follow-ups (she gains Charge on basic critical hits).
However, if she is granted 2 additional charges every turn (3 on start) while being with Gwen, even without Raider, her critical chance (35%) will be high enough so statistically she can build enough charges to have a passive attack on every enemy turn. This is only if Firestart is given Striker and she attacks targets with Vulnerability – she will check her crit chance 2 times (because of Striker’s Bonus attack), so the chance for scoring critical will be doubled as with Raider with one crucial difference – she will place additional Offense Up on random New Warriors members on her every turn.
If Firestar could be effective in CC as Striker that would be an insane boost to the whole team, but that will depend on Gwen’s speed because, if Firestar plays first, as a Striker she will not have Vulnerability to exploit.
In short, everything depends on Gwen’s Speed, and without it, we can’t make a fully accurate counsel. If Gwen is about to play first in the New Warriors team, the strength of MoE in CC will be considered as nothing out of ordinary compared to the strength of New Warriors.
