Mobile Legends: Bang Bang a mobile MOBA game that has taken the mobile scene by storm due to its fluid gameplay and mechanical fidelity of all the heroes and their abilities and best free-to-play mechanics. The game has a vast roster of Champions to choose from and learn their abilities to have fun on the battlefield while increasing complexity for more veteran players.
Another content-rich update by the developers Moonton has recently been released with the patch version of 1.5.88, which has brought many new optimizations for equipment, heroes, and battlefield. With this new Original Server update, many new things will be rolling out, which we will discuss in this update article.
Moonton has previously released a new Advanced Server for their game Mobile: Bang Bang that focused on new heroes and revamped some of the older ones. Moonton also optimized the damage calculation methods and better equipment purchase protocols that helped the game include many QOL features. The details you can read about more below. Before that, we recommend you to play Mobile Legends: Bang Bang on a PC.
A few of the adjustments that were made for the equipment are listed below:
Some new additions include three new equipment items:
This update has revamped some heroes and added a few others.
Karina’s revamp was long overdue as she is one of the most-anticipated heroes. In this update, developers have taken special care in providing attention to Karina. Her revamp retained the Assassin status while the agility is seen as buff completing her “agility and assassination” premise. You will find the details of the revamp below.
Shadow Combo (Passive) – Firstly, the damage dealt is increased to a target when Karina hits them three times in quick succession. Secondly, when you trigger Karina’s Shadow Combo at enemy heroes, the trigger will reduce the cooldowns of Karina's Dance of Blade, the first active ability, and Dance of Death, the second Active ability.
Dance of Blades (First Active Ability) – Karina’s Dance of Blades is also getting a revamp. Karina goes into defensive mode when activating Dance of Blades against all basic attacks, which causes her movement speed to increase. You can unleash a spinning slash whenever a basic short-range attack hits her, or she can also throw her shadow blade when an enemy hits her with a longer-range AA.
Her next attack after Dance of Blades deals more damage which is an excellent tool to catch up fleeing enemies while slowing them down. As soon as the preceding AA hits an opponent, the Dance of Blades stops. The Dance of Blades also stops if you activate Karina’s Shadow Assault.
Shadow Assault (Ultimate Ability) – A new latest feature is included in Karina's Ultimate ability. You can summon a Shadowform that stays at the activated spot; Karina can move around freely. You can re-activate the Shadow Assault to return to the Shadowform’s location whenever needed.
You can use this ability if some enemy is following you or in a fight with you, as this will leave a Shadow Mark on them when they hit Karina's Shadow Assault. Shadow Assault’s cooldown is reset as soon as the enemy hero with a Shadow Mark dies.
Alpha, the Blade of Enmity, has been revamped to fully utilize the abilities of the summon Beta to rake havoc on enemies.
Beta, Advance! (Passive) – This ability can summon Beta, which you can use to attack and mark the enemy targets. As soon as you mark the enemy with two marks, The Beta will unleash three laser strikes on the marked enemy. The first two strikes can deal True damage to the enemy while also reducing the enemy's speed. The third laser attack is an AoE attack that deals extra True damage, always more than the first two laser attacks.
Force Swing (Second Active Ability) – When you charge this ability for a few seconds, the Alpha strikes in a fan-shaped area in front of him, which deals Physical Damage, and each hit will restore HP. While you're dealing damage to the enemies, the Beta will strafe alongside the enemies and deal with physical damage.
Alpha, Charge! (Ultimate) – The Alpha commands the Beta to jump up and then smash down at the selected location, which deals Physical Damage and stuns anyone caught in the AoE. When activating Sn's Ultimate ability, all the enemies caught in the range of the travel distance are moved towards the destination. This ability also deals Physical Damage to enemies in the path. Furthermore, Alpha will also smash down to deal Physical Damage while slowing the opponents. The Beta will unleash five AOE strikes on the target location that deals Physical Damage right after the Alpha smashes down.
This revamp focuses on Minotaur’s Roar and Rage mechanics.
Rage Mode (Passive) – The Passive Skill is adjusted to reduce cooldowns for Minotaur’s skills whenever he enters the Rage State and will be reset.
Motivation Roar (The Second Active Ability) – A brand new effect has been added, which implies Minotaur’s Basic Attacks for five seconds are enhanced each time Motivation Roar is cast.
The revamp for Sun has a similar design perspective for The Alpha as it targets Sun's shadow in various ways. The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang's developers have optimized the AI of Sun’s Doppelgangers as this makes them more intelligent and present in the fields of the battle and HP revamp, which Sun's summons gain from him.
Endless Variety (First Active Ability) – Sun can hurl his Golden Staff towards a designated direction which damages all the enemy heroes along the staff’s trajectory while slowing them. When the Golden Staff hits any of the enemy heroes or creeps, for that matter, it will transform into one of the Doppelgangers who will pursue the enemy champions. In any case, if the Golden Staff is not able to hit an enemy, it will be transformed into the Doppelganger after reaching the end of its path.
Swift Exchange (New Skill, Second Active Ability) – This ability can make Sun invisible when needed and travels along with its Golden Staff. At the same time, a Doppelganger remains where Sun was to confuse the opponents while the Sun flies along with the Golden Staff and escapade. This way, Sun will reappear at the end of Golden Staff’s trajectory after hitting an enemy or reappearing at the flight's end if it hasn't hit an enemy champion.
Instantaneous Move (Third Active Ability) – Both Sun and his Doppelgangers make instantaneous attacks against the target enemy hero. These instantaneous attacks deal damage to the target and any enemy behind the targeted champion.
As always in any MOBA game, whenever a champion performs well or becomes OP, the developers have to sit down, go back to the drawing boards, and make calculations to balance the game. Balancing the game is a tricky and challenging process and is an iterative process in MOBA games. Let's find out what this patch offers for the Champions in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.
