The Deadliest Duo in the Galaxy
May 25, 2021

Greetings Commanders,


Two of the galaxy's most infamous step-sisters are undergoing an epic transformation in preparation for the Infinity Watch joining the battle. Their upgrades will help elevate the Infinity Watch as the new top dog in battle and today we're showcasing the new ways in which they'll be inflicting pain upon their enemies. Let's dive in!

Gamora

The deadliest woman in the galaxy is getting a whole lot more powerful as Gamora will soon be Empowered! Just like Thanos before her, when Gamora becomes Empowered, she'll have access to an all-new set of abilities. Different from Thanos, Gamora’s Empowered state is based on a Charge mechanic. It’s a bit intricate, so you’ll want to read her updated abilities (below) carefully.


Along with her new Empowered state, Gamora is also getting massive boosts to her stats across the board, so it's safe to say that her job on Infinity Watch is damage. With all of her combined updates, you'll feel as if Gamora is capable of taking out an enemy on each of her turns.

Nebula

Nebula is also receiving a slew of improvements herself, and the upgraded abilities are sure to cause mayhem in battle.


For her Infinity Watch team, Nebula brings a ton of extra damage, both through Assists and by passing out Counters via her Special ability, "Challenging Foe." Her Assist chance hits 100% with a full Infinity Watch team. On the Defensive side, Nebula also brings sustain to her team by granting Evade on her Ultimate ability, "Mayhem." Speaking of mayhem, her Ultimate now also applies Heal Block and with at least three Infinity Watch allies this attack chains to up to 10 adjacent targets. Clearing out an army of minions, clones, and dupes has never been so satisfying!

If you're looking to bolster Nebula with character shards, head over to Nexus 4-6 on June 1st, as she'll be replacing Mercenary Sniper who will remain in rotation in the War Store.
