MSF: Dread The Darkness Live Blog – Round #2

Dread The Darkness - Mission 1

Dark Dimension III: Dread The Darkness was the ultimate endgame content in Marvel Strike Force in 2020, and I began fighting it in May after finally getting my 5th character to Gear 14, before completing it in late December. While the Dark Dimension now has a 4th level, I start today in my quest to earn a 5-Red Star Ultimus now that I have built some other characters up. Unlike how I have written the individual experiences of each mission on separate pages/articles, I will chronicle the high level details of this second time through DD3 here in this lone article instead. My goal here is to run through the entire Dread The Darkness event with just my Pym Tech five, but this may take some time to build them up.

 

My Dread The Darkness eligible characters:

  • Spider-Man (Symbiote) – 131,081 power, Level 80, Gear 14 +3, Abilities Levels 7-7-7-5 – 6 Stars, 6 Red Stars – Level 4 Skirmisher
  • Wasp – 102,798 power, Level 79, Gear 14 +0, Ability Levels 6-6-6-5 – 7 Stars, 5 Red Stars – Level 2 Striker
  • Ant-Man – 101,111 power, Level 79, Gear 14 +0, Ability Levels 6-6-6-5 – 7 Stars, 5 Red Stars – Level 2 Striker
  • Stature – 79,024 power, Level 79, Gear 14 +0, Ability Levels 6-6-6-5 – 5 Stars, 4 Red Stars – Level 2 Healer
  • Yellowjacket – 77,572 power, Level 79, Gear 14 +1, Ability Levels 6-6-6-5 – 4 Stars, 4 Red Stars – Level 2 Raider

 

Dread The Darkness – Mission 1

Hela (1.43m), 8.4m enemy health

01.25.21 – My team checks in at 491k power. I find out quickly that the higher star levels and higher ability levels are going to be a huge piece to this – more than I realized. Early in the fight Ant-Man and Stature get hit a lot and are near death, showing how the added survivability is needed. I quit the battle and try this out with a slightly stronger team, using a 122k Carnage over the 77k Yellowjacket and see a bit more success, killing a few enemies before seeing my team start facing apart. I quit again and try a near maxed team that checked in at over 630k and see how that team can run through the enemies, and make the choice to pause this battle for the time being as I seek to beef these characters up and add Ghost.
