The following is a consolidation of my previous two entries "Shedding the Light: Hero Buying for Noobs"

TESSARLIGHT'S CONSOLIDATED HERO RECRUITING GUIDE

This guide is very simple, it objectively deals with one question and one question alone. Who to buy next?

This guide goes about answering that question by the criteria of:

Getting the hero you NEED next, not the one you WANT next.

As stated, this is an objective guide and my opinions are (largely) removed. Nevertheless: the CAVAET...

This guide is by no means a be-all, end-all guide to decide hero purchases. Such a decision is purely a matter of personal preference and should not influence you directly to "pull the trigger" on a character if you don't like or want them at this current time.

  • Missions separated by commas (except Premium Missions, which are separated)
  • Slashes indicate where two or more heroes in a mission.
  • Bold Indicate first deploys
  • [Bracketed] indicate "Team-Ups"
  • Heroes needed for Epic Bosses are underlined
  • Heroes required in Premium missions for Deploys are italicized
  • Italicized total required CPs for a chapter indicate new heros needed
  • Note: It is highly recommended that you purchase the Captain America WWII Bruiser Alt for 1.12.2 (Ouroboros) when CP farming. [Thanks TheRavenHeart]

Because Season 2 is set up differently, required heroes are different. This guide assumes you have NOT acquired required heroes for season 1 and require them to complete Season 2 missions. This guide also assumes that you might not want to complete the Heroic battles, so the required CPs are separate.

  • Note: S2 C1 M6 is by far one of the most expensive missions in the game thus far (except for Spec Ops).

Due to the limited time nature of Spec Ops missions, I cannot state which heroes will be required as I do not work for PD. I can only provide you with possibilities in terms CPs required for heroes. They are as follows:

Possibility SPECIAL OPERATIONS (aka Spec Ops, aka SO)

Total req:

A Two (2) 90 CP  + One (1) 135 CP 315
B Two (2) 135 CP  + One (1) 90 CP 360
C One (1) 90 + One (1) 135CP + One (1) <90 CP 240 to 273


There you have it. All the heroes and required CPs to recruit based on each chapter/mission. I'm sure this information is available elsewhere in this format, but I haven't seen it yet. You can obtain this info through the Season 1 Story page.

Another point I'd like to point out here is that while you need Cap A, Hulk, Spidey, Rogue, Thor and Wolverine, you do NOT need Beast, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, Gambit, Thundra, Hercules or Tigra. These heroes were released after most of the season 1 chapters were. However, they are required in Season 2 - at least, Gambit is. Of these latter release heroes, the only one I'd recommend is Scarlet Witch, but that's because I dig the whole bathing suit with a cape thing.

MY PERSONAL CAVAET.

First thing you need to understand is: I did not go about acquiring my heroes in the way I explained above. No, this guide is from my terrible experience of choosing heroes I think are cool versus the ones I needed. Case in point - I got Iron Fist and Luke Cage before I got Phoenix or Storm. While this was the correct thing to do for mission deploys, my training of these characters has turned out to be largely superfluous as I never use them.

More to the point, this breakdown is to let you know in a quick way, which heros you need for mission mastery. I have NOT included the heroes required for Premium missions, as those are blatantly obvious in the mission windows. And as TheRavenHeart points out below in comment, some heroes are better to obtain before others - from a tactical/strategic/fun standpoint. After all... Storm zapping goons with lightning bolts is way cooler than Spidey going "thwip-thwip".

Final point - While this guide helps with determining which hero to buy next, insofar as they are heroes under the 90cp threshold, it does not cover any the newer heroes released after Chapter 12. If you're at the point where you can buy any of those heroes, the answer is always YES.

e.g. "Should I buy Cable or Psylocke?" "Yes, you should."

See... above... for.... why...... <squinty eyes>

ONE FINAL NOTE: THIS GUIDE IS BEING CONSTANTLY UPDATED AS NEW THOUGHTS AND IDEAS COME TO MIND. THE ORIGINAL GUIDE WAS MERELY A GRID-STYLE LAYOUT OF HEROES AS THEY ARE NEEDED IN ORDER OF REQUIRED APPEARANCE.

ALSO - Due to some revisions in style, some of the indicators were lost for the importance of some heroes. I'm doing my best to fix this as I go along. As i've been using bold, italics, underlines and brackets, there's a possiblity I may switch to asterisks (*) -- Sorry for any confusion this may've caused.
