Welcome to the Iso-8 guide for Black Panther, the latest in our series about the popular game Marvel Strike Force. In this series we look at the best Iso-8 enhancements for MSF characters. While some may refer to Iso-8 as simply “mods” like in other mobile games, we will look to stay true to the naming convention of the Marvel universe and the developers over at Scopely. We at Gaming-fans.com certainly do not claim to have all of the answers in this game, but we do our research and look to use every hero and villain we write about extensively. These are Iso-8 recommendations based on the character’s kit and actual gameplay to help you in your quest to dominate in Marvel Strike Force. Note that these Iso-8 classes may differ from one team makeup to another, so feel free use this as guide knowing that these can change in differing situations within MSF’s gameplay.
Today’s character to review is Black Panther. While he is not the Legendary MSF character in the Wakandan faction, something I this FoxNext/Scopely would change if they could, he can be a fantastic offensive character in this game and is made stronger by the other Wakandans in the game. Let’s take a look at the stats we want to focus on enhancing now that Iso-8 modifications are added to Marvel Strike Force.
Main Focus: Offense/Damage. Black Panther is a very good character in Marvel Strike Force and I was one of the lucky few to get him in a 6-red star version. As a result I have seen his damage potential time and time again and built a strong team of Wakandans around him. Because he deals very good Damage already, and his Panther Rush AoE attack can be so devastating, I recommend adding even more Damage to Black Panther to enhance his strength.
Additional Areas to Focus: Focus (Potency), Critical Chance, Critical Damage, Defense and Piercing? I say “Piercing?” simply because we do not yet know what stats can be enhanced by Iso-8 modifications, and if this is a stat that we can add to I would definitely boost it for Black Panther as all of his attacks already have added Piercing. Focus is MSF’s version of Potency and given how important the Slow debuff is in this game and that he applies it on his basic, Claw Slash, this is a stat I would look to enhance. Critical Chance and Critical Damage are only going to add to the Offense/Damage mentioned above and will especially help the Panther Rush AoE attack given it has an extra 20% CC already. Finally added Defense is a good idea simply because BP has so much offensive value on the Wakandan team and because he gains Deflect on gaining Defense up which is often granted by Shuri’s Instant Upgrade.
Ideal Iso-8 Class for Black Panther in Marvel Strike Force:
Black Panther is a Brawler who uses his attacks to hit hard and land the Slow debuff. Increasing his damage output and using his basic more often is going to help your team be more effective in battle. When looking at the Classes available from Iso-8 upgrades, the Striker Class not only adds to the damage output but also can trigger an Iso bonus attack when the Striker attacks a Marked target. Another option is the Raider Class, which improves Critical Chance and Critical Damage as it scales. While either of these are good choices for Black Panther, much depends on how you use him. I was an early adopter of the entire Wakandan faction and have built that team to over 500k power, thus I use them together. When used as a Wakandan fivesome, I feel that Black Panther is best used as a Striker given the value of critical hits to Killmonger’s kit. However, if you use Black Panther with another combination that does not include Killmonger, the Raider class may be a better fit, given the importance of his AoE attack, to make him as deadly as possible.
