Class of 99s #5 – Taking Level 99 By The Scruffy Of The Neck

Hey there Addicts

So it’s time for your characters to climb the career ladder, yes they’ve hovered in the lowly ranks for long enough and now they need to take that one giant step for man, robot, alien, mutant or woman kind to reach that coveted 4-Star rank that will see them start their journey towards the ultimate goal of being a Level 99 character.

And as you know I decided to do posts tracking my characters progress as they aim to join my Class of 99’s. Promoting characters to 99 is not easy but I thought we might as well have some fun along the way looking at the various characters that make the ultimate journey from 1-99 in my game. And who are we going to be looking at today? Well Scruffy, as he had the great honour of being the first Influencer I took all the way to Level 99.

So why did I choose Scruffy? Quite simply because he was already my highest level Influencer when this Promotion madness hit, that’s the honest truth of the matter. So it wasn’t based on passives, abilities, combat strategy or anything. Strategy levelling up was something I left for laterrr. So this promotion was heavily based on laziness.

So let’s break down what it will cost you to get our first Influencer into the Class of 99’s and of course look at the benefits there are in ranking and levelling Scruffy up.  And to make it simple to follow I’ll break it up into his Star Ranks.


1-Star Rank Scruffy

Every character, including Scruffy, starts ranked at 1-Star, and at this rank Scruffy comes with the following passives:

Influencer’s Support: Heals your team.

And from here you can start levelling up Scruffy to a maximum Level 10. The cost to do so is as follows:

Nixonbucks: 3840

Once at Level 10, Scruffy cannot rise the level ladder any further until you promote him to a 2-Star Rank.

Was He Worth It?

So is Scruffy a worthy promotion or a luxury you can’t afford?

Well in my opinion, and this is just mine, he’s scrapes into being a worthy promotion. This is because he gives me access to the higher gated Daily Planet mission paths combined with being a core story character. But he’s not a gladiator in the arena and for me he will only be used when the mission dictates he is.


Russian Tigger Class of 99’s!!!

So Scruffy is the fifth crew member to make it into my Class of 99’s. Who’ll be next? I’ll reveal all soon.


There you have it, the overall costs and benefits of promoting Scruffy. What do you think of levelling up so far? Any tips for fellow Players? Any characters you’d like to see at 99?  Let us know in the comments.

    1. It is a team too dependant on Villains, you need try have other classes to move through the various Daily Planet missions for badges – it’s a fun team but as I say too reliant on one class

      1. I will say Lrrr (lvl 10 Omicron embassy) be course he does splash damage like Scientist but with full Captain damage
        or Leo (lvl 10 Mars embassy) since he does get splash damage at 4 star rand that does full Villain damage.
        Those two will definitely be on my main fighting team (together with some Scientists)
