Guide to Mockingbird in Marvel: Avengers Alliance

Overview –

Mockingbird is a difficult character to describe. In almost all circumstances her talents include massive debuffing and dealing major damage. But, due to her special abilities, she will play slightly differently in almost every battle. She is one of the best characters in the game, with her only drawback being that she is only moderately good against the rare enemy that is a generalist.

How to Obtain –

Mockingbird could only be obtained from special operation #1. If she wasn’t obtained then, there is currently no way to obtain her. The buying league of legends account should be in the consideration of the players. The experience and skills obtained from the game should be positive for the players. The charges will be under the funds available with the players. 

Special Abilities – Mock Combat / Tactical Insight –

These special abilities are unique to Mockingbird. The first ability changes Mockingbird’s class to the counter-class of any enemy that attacks her. The second ability gives her a 50% chance of gaining an immediate additional action whenever she changes her class. Combined, these abilities allow Mockingbird to gain the advantage against an enemy that attacks her and to potentially act immediately after that attack. As an important note, when Mockingbird changes her class, she still retains any buffs the previous class granted her. Thus, it is possible for Mockingbird to retain the enraged bonus to attack and defense from a bruiser while benefiting from the double attack advantage of a scrapper, for example.

Twin Strike (Level 1) –

For this ability alone, Mockingbird would be a great character. This moderate stamina cost attack deals moderate damage and potentially applies any and all of the following status effects to the enemy: slowed, dizzy, weakened, and exposed. This attack is also the attack Mockingbird uses to counter attack with and for follow up attacks. The incredibly high hit rate of this attack makes it one of the best attacks in the game.

Pole Vault (Level 2) –

Pole Vault might look like a good attack, but compared to Twin Strike it is basically worthless. It deals about half as much damage as Twin Strike and only has a 60% chance of stunning the target. Even if it does stun the target, the stun will have worn off by Mockingbird’s next action, which means the only real benefit Mockingbird gained was putting combo setup on the target. The best use of this attack is to setup an ally or save stamina when trying to get through avoidance effects on an enemy.

Critical Intel (Level 6) –

This ability makes Mockingbird absolutely devastating. When used, all enemies will receive a critical hit on the next attack against them. Furthermore, Mockingbird gains a buff that causes her to change to the counter class of the next enemy she attacks before the attack resolves. Thus, Mockingbird will gain the benefits of the counter class for that attack. The one downside of this ability is that it won’t apply the buff to Mockingbird more than once per battle.

Mocking Blow (Level 9) –

On paper this attack looks like a very high stamina cost attack that only deals high damage. In reality, it can potentially be the highest damage dealing attack in the game, delivering hits that deal up to five times the health of an enemy. The trick is that this attack deals additional damage to the target for each debuff on it, from the list of most common debuffs. If used after Twin Strike has applied all four debuffs, this attack will deal, on average, half again as much health as the enemy has.

Unlocks –

Mockingbird is not currently used to unlock any content and is unlikely to be needed in the future.

PvP –

Mockingbird is one of the best PvP characters in the game. Her flexibility in class means that she can face just about any combination of characters. Her massive damage potential allows her to remove enemies quickly and her Tactical Insight ability gives her the potential to gain multiple additional attacks during a fight. The only character that gives her any real trouble is Scarlet Witch, because Scarlet Witch can turn Mockingbird’s debuffs into buffs.
