Nightcrawler is a Mutant Champion. Being a Mutant Champion, he has a Class Bonus against Skill Champions, but is weak to Tech Champions.

Bio

Raised from childhood in an Eastern European circus, Half-Demon Mutant Kurt Wagner has always existed on the outside. Gifted with the power to teleport at will, but marred with his father's demonic appearance, Kurt eventually found a place for himself amongst Xavier's X-Men. Despite his intimidating outward appearance, Nightcrawler remains positive and optimistic, always using his powers for the betterment of both mankind and mutantkind.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths

Weaknesses

Recommended Masteries

  • Precision: As Nightcrawler's Deep Wound, and by extension his Signature Ability, rely on striking with consistent Critical Hits, grabbing this Mastery can increase his damage output by a large amount.[1]
  • Cruelty: While in his Swashbuckling Mode, Nightcrawler gets a fairly large boost to his Critical Hit Chance. Increasing his Critical Damage can allow this Mode to grant even larger damage boosts.[1]
  • Mutagenesis and Block Proficiency: Outside of his ability to Evade incoming damage, either through his passive Neyaphem Mode or through his Bamf skill, Nightcrawler has poor defenses. Grabbing these Masteries can increase his survivability for the rare occasions when he gets struck.[1]

Trivia

  • "Unglaublich" translates to "Incredible."
  • "Lieber Gott!" translates to "Dear God!"
