Kabam is releasing Act 6 Chapter 1 today. Some of the content creators have got early access and shared tips to clear. The new Act 6 Chapter comes with Retreat Node that is very annoying to deal with.
What is No Retreat Node in Act 6 Chapters?
When the attacker dashes back they gain Degen Timer for 1.20 seconds. Dashing back again while the Degen Time is action cause a passive Degen dealing 200% of the Defender’s Attack as direct damage over 5 seconds
So even if you have a 5-star R5 Blade that regenerates a lot of health will die quickly if you retreat again when the Degen timer is active. You need to get used to it before you start completing paths, else it will cost you more than your estimation.
How to Fight No Retreat Node
Option 1: Use a champion that can control power. If you can lock power, drain, or steal it, you will just have to parry and fight. Baiting special is the main reason that triggers no retreat because you have to bait lots of specials.
Option 2: Get used to the node. Whenever you dash back, you get 1.2 seconds timer, so you will have to get used to that you don’t dash back twice within 1.2 seconds. Some champions will require you to interrupt heavy, e.g. Agent venom. One dash back against Agent Venom is not enough unless you are using a champ that makes lots of space with one dash back (e.g. Iron Man Infinity War – One dash back is enough to avoid Agent Venom’s Heavy). So, get used to the node and you will get better.
Just watched a video created by Dorky that I want to share with your guys that talk about how you can fight retreat Node in Act 6.
