This is a great topic!

Although, not to be mean, but It would have been better left closed until the game came out.

Phoenix Crystal is the best unreleased Crystal.

Since we've seen Krankcase's upgrades, what path do you think you guys will choose for him? I'm still undecided but I'm thinking about the hat-bot path...

For anyone who wants to know what the paths are, I posted those of wave one and two Senseis here (beware of unmarked spoilers in surrounding posts).

Edit: I can't recommend the spin path for Crash. Maybe I'm pressing the buttons wrong or it's just because I'm using a Wiimote, but whenever I do a spin combo and keep mashing A, it starts another spin combo and on the second spin, THEN it keeps the spin going. It's just extremely impractical for combat. Also, I still haven't tried it, but the four crates just sound more useful anyway because the best thing about the extended spin is its range, and (while it's probably less powerful) tossing out four crates would probably be safer for that anyway.

You can't see the names until you buy enough upgrades to pick a path so we're gonna have to wait until someone writes them all down.

What path does everybody recommend for Ambush? I like the sound of amplifying all his combos, but the giant bamboo tree sounds powerful.

I'm not sure which path for Chopscotch. I'm leaning towards the "Line" path, but the top one is said to be really strong.
Going with the scarab path for Goldy, but I don't know if I should maybe take the other.

The top path is a must.

Neo Cortex is very fun with the path recommended by Gowbuzzer. I think this one is an easy choice.

Combining Mines, N. Tropy staff, bolts and blaster fracture makes the action look like a cartoo firework !
It is also the downside of it: you sometimes take damages just because you do not even see enemies ans there attacks.

#25 Posted: 07:44:39 20/10/2016
I have a feeling both ember paths are very good and am still torn on which path to pick.
The video for the combo path didn't really show much of the dash attack, not sure whether it was not good or you just forgot about it Buuzer?
The bottom path has the healing ability but the charge time for the supernova storm thing is pretty long.

Can anyone help any further with a recommendation?

The dash attack is very glitchy as you can see, that's why I never use it.

OK I really couldn't tell what the dash did very well since it did seem glitchy and all over the place. Did you notice if it had any form of knockback?

Hood Sickles top path is no doubt the best one. I purchased the first two upgrades on it and hes an insane BEAST now.

If you like combos, then go with the Top Path for Aurora, but I've seen the bottom path and she is wild on it, so that's my suggestion.

I don't remember but the dash doesn't even attack the enemies, as you can see. Very glitched, hope they fix in the next game. The bottom path has all these potential, of course it's the best path.

Pit Boss is in Wave 3, and I'm assuming it'll be coming out around Christmas due to the Chompy Mage variant.

I consider Ember's Top Path better. The healing thing on the bottom is useless since she has to be close to the explosion which is a ranged attack. I also really like combos and the fact that you do more damage on lower health. The only good upgrade on the bottom path is the one where you can shoot multiple meteors, but that's it.

Stellar Blast, my Magic Quickshot, has Master Marksman, the Third Elemental attck where you make a force field that throws enemies away and they get shortly some damage afterwards and the Death Blossom. She's really fast and agile and can keep the enemies at bay, probably one of my strongest Imaginators.
Dahvoo Hunter Gems: 3698
#38 Posted: 01:58:09 22/10/2016
Agree with everything accept Crash. His top path is definitely more useful IMHO. I can lay down crates and still spin them in a stronger attack.

Top Path for Goldy. The scarabs do a bunch of damage and the big one can take out a horde of enemies when fully charged. The bottom one just gives you more projectiles to shoot while you can't.

I'm going to make him a Quickshot, so which one would you recommend I go for?

You'll have to reset Crash. After trying both paths, the top (spin) path is more useful. To me the bottom path only really adds a move to drop some crates at the same time, but you can drop crates quickly anyway.

The other bottom path upgrades didn't even seem noticaly different when I tried them. The tornado spin move is too much fun to give up.

Not a recommendation, just writing down my feelings 'cuz this topic is in a sorry state where it's sorely lacking discussion and frankly, is very boring. But I already had this post written down and I figure I may as well try to post something.

I've decided to make Soundmeister my main path for Wolfgang. Both are great, though. The second path... Err, I forget the name... Just feels more flowchart-y in how it keeps enemies away (knee slide near a bunch, usually try to stay inside the barrier and shoot arrows or set up stereoes on the side and then use the explosion if you can) and a little less mobile (since you usually just stick around wherever you knee slided to for the barrier until you decide to explode it, whereas on Soundmeister you can have some fun with the trails knee slide leaves behind). Also, second path gets even less use out of Wolfgang's (honestly fairly crummy) Soul Gem, because the barrier pretty much covers the same area. But y'know, if I'm in the right mood, the higher burst damage of the second path can be more fun and I do really like being able to keep enemies away so effectively. The main reason I prefer Soundmeister is just that it feels like all the moves have more distinct uses from eachother than on the other path (where it feels like everything is built around the sound barriers- not nessicarily a bad thing, but less interesting to me).

Glad Wolfgang got a variant so I can have both paths ready. Ultimately, I'm sticking to Soundmeister on Dark Wolfgang (who I prefer to regular), but this is the hardest time I've had picking a path for a Sensei so far.

Also, sorry if some of these thoughts sound like rubbish. It's 5 PM and I've been up since 2 AM because my dad's snoring keeps me up every night, so I'm exhausted.
