Well, it finally happened, a whale running the latest heroes (some of which I saw for the first time) with red borders. Not sure if there were any invincibility frames involved, but they survived a combination of awakened Taurus, Alecia, Sumiko and two Mazir aoe nukes plus Osiris boost with 20% hp remaining. That is not okay.
My curernt strategy is to clear the crucible with alecia/mazir+taurus and rotate the other 3 slots so that as many heroes as possible have their ultimate charged. I have around 20 ready when reaching last node. It's much more tedious than just plowing through the nodes, but I'm too afraid to not do it because it's impossible to kill these things with unprepared heroes, they get wiped immediately. Failing crucible now means failing the finaly daily chest and probably the corresponding weekly objective.
CoF is an extra tbh
Adds 10 points just to make u go from 120 to 130
