Iso-8

Ronin would benefit most from a Striker class since in War, his Iso follow-up/counter/assist attacks will reduce Speed Bar. He’s also a damage dealer character, and Striker class is usually preferable for them.

There might be an argument made for Raider, his Basic and Special abilities target multiple enemies, but he won’t be using his Special until his second turn and it has a long cooldown, also the Basic Ability affects only 2 enemies, so Raider might be wasted on him.

T4 Priority

P – Passive ability

U – Ultimate ability

B – Basic ability

S – Special ability

Passive

This ability will Apply Blind on a Revived enemy, and increase Focus for the New Avengers team by +50%. This takes priority over other abilities so upgrading this first is a good idea.

Ultimate

Maxed out this will increase the number of Bonus Attacks and allow Ronin to apply Trauma. It will increase the damage output moderately and if by chance the target is still alive it will leave it vulnerable with Trauma effect applied, so it’s a must-have.

Special

This will increase the Rebound Chain from 3 targets to 5, and up the Damage on the Primary attack hit. It’s a good ability to have but not a necessity.

Theory Craft

While Hawkeye is best known for his role as the Avengers’ bow-wielding trick shooter, the Ronin guise is an identity passed between multiple individuals. As a masterless samurai, the Ronin identity battles with underworld powers that make their threats from the shadows and has been adopted by Blade, Maya Lopez, and even an alternate universe version of Marc Spector.

But in the February 2007 issue of New Avengers #27, it was Clint Barton disguised as Ronin who arrived on the scene alongside the fugitive New Avengers team when they set out to rescue Echo from Elektra and the Hand.

This more focused version of Clint Barton has abandoned the Hawkeye identity in the wake of the Superhuman Registration Act and adopted the katana as his weapon of choice.

Basic – Vengeful Strikes

Basic Ability will attack the primary target for a moderate amount of Piercing Damage and chain to another target for slightly less Piercing Damage.

Counterattack breaks this Chain. This attack cannot be blocked.

ISO – 8/Counter Attack/Assists:

In War, this attack will reduce the Speed Bar of the primary target by 25% (when in a full New Avengers team)

Special – Cleaning House

Energy Cost: 3/6

This will attack the primary target for a decent amount of Damage and apply Stun and 2 Bleed, after that, it will Rebound Chain to 5 targets within 2 spaces of previous target for slightly less Damage and apply 2 Bleed.

This attack cannot be counterattacked or blocked.

Ultimate – Merciless

Energy Cost: 7/7

Ultimate Ability will clear the Revive Once from the primary target, then attack the target 5 times for small Piercing Damage. After that, it will Bonus Attack the target for moderate Piercing Damage and apply Blind+2 Bleed.

This attack cannot be counterattacked or blocked.

In War, it will also apply Trauma.

Passive – Underworld Reckoning

On enemy Revive, apply Blind to that enemy.

If Black Widow is an ally, when this character or any Black Widow ally drops below 50% Max Health for the first time, Heal that character for 10% of this character’s Max Health + Redistribute total health evenly between self and each Black Widow ally.

Gain +80% Focus. New Avengers allies gain +80% Focus.

In War:

  • Gain +35% Speed. New Avengers allies gain +35% Speed.
  • At the start of any match, if this character has 4 or more New Avengers allies, enemy characters cannot fill Speed Bar.

Conclusion

This is an amazing kit for a War team. His Passive Ability will be invaluable in that mode when the full New Avengers team is assembled. Not only will it stop all the dangerous War Offense teams from filling their Speed Bar on spawn, teams like Weapon X, Underworld, and Death Seed, but will also increase the base Speed for each New Avenger ally by +35%.

Ronin’s Ultimate Ability is the one he’s gonna use on his first turn, and it has the potential to eliminate a single target entirely, owing to the great amount of Piercing Damage it will deal.

And his Basic ability will reduce the Speed bar on every counterattack, Iso attack, or assist.

It looks like New Avengers might be one of the Top War teams. Especially now that you will have the freedom of choosing whether to use them on Defense or Offense.
