The role of a Mage in a MOBA game is one of the most important roles as mages have the highest crowd control and burst magic damage. Being a mage requires patience and good positioning as mages are extremely squishy at any given time (early/mid/late) in game. Mage not only has the job of dealing heavy burst damage but to also support Fighters and Tanks early game as they lack damage at start.
There are 3 things you will need to follow to survive in the game while playing mage :
Further explaining the points mentioned above,
Mages deal heavy burst damage throughout the game but are extremely squishy so the best way is to hide behind a Tank/Fighter. Always let the tank take the damage instead of you and position yourself in a way that you can easily cast skills and damage the enemy and dominate the lane.
As being extremely squishy mages are free/easy kills for enemy assassins as mages lack mobility so if you learn positioning well combine it with map awareness to avoid getting ganked by enemy assassins and fighters.
Weird point? No believe me, while playing mages always keep eye on enemy items especially fighters, supports and tanks as items provide a way to counter enemies. For example, you can reduce enemy’s life steal or healing from supports or increase penetration to melt beefy tanks.
Mages are fun to play as you can deal tons of damage without going to the front lines. MLBB provides a wide variety of mages with mechanism which are absolutely fun to play. As of September 2018 there are 18 mages namely: Lunox, Selena, Chang’e, Valir, Pharsa, Zhask, Odette, Vexena, Aurora, Cyclops, Kagura, Gord, Eudora, Nana, Alice, Harley, Karina, and Gusion.
Vexena is a mage whose specialty is Poke and Crowd Control (CC).
Her abilities are high damaging and cause CC effects on multiple enemy heroes
making her one of the top picked heroes in Epic rank and above.
Harley specializes in dealing heavy damage and is best for Poking.
He is a mage who has a blink ability allowing him to play aggressively.
He is not the best pick for ganking but is more effective when soloing or partnering with an aggressive fighter or assassin.
Ever thought of perfect mage who can CC enemies has crazy burst damage and is gank proof then kagura is the one who has all the required skills. Kagura is one of the mages with highest difficulty and complicated mechanics. Kagura is one of the top picked heroes in legend and above ranks.
Alice is a mage who has the most AoE skills with decent Burst, CC and Blink.
Having complicated mechanics and difficult play style Alice is mostly seen in Mythic rank.
Cyclops is a mage with high amount of Damage and Poke. He does stupidly crazy burst damage mid game but is highly vulnerable. He lacks long range except for his ultimate which is a nightmare in 1 v 1 situations.
Best for Beginners
As for starting games with mages, in early ranks I’ll suggest playing these mages as they have good damage and decent mechanics which are easy to learn.
Eudora is perfect for beginners as she has easy mechanics and top notch damage which can easily kill assassins, marksman.
Recommended Emblem: Magic Emblem with Magic Power Surge talent or Mage emblem with Magic Worship
Recommended item set: Arcane Boots, Enchanted Talisman, Lightning Truncheon, Divine Glaive, Winter Truncheon, and Blood Wings
Aurora is a mage who can deal heavy burst damage and is skill shot based but being AoE they usually hit so not to worry if you are completely new to MOBA.
Recommended Emblem: Magic Emblem with Magic Power Surge talent or Mage emblem with Impure Rage
Recommended Items: Demon Shoes, Holy Crystal, Ice Queen Wand, Divine Glaive, Fleeting Time, Blood Wings
Yes Cyclops is also good for newbies as he has easy mechanics and decent damage and requires no skill shots.
Recommended Emblem: Mage emblem with Golden Touch
Recommended Items: Rapid Boots, Enchanted Talisman, Concentrated Energy, Glowing Wand, Divine Glaive, Lightning Truncheon
Selena is by far the most feared and banned Mage/Assassin in MLBB because of her Broken abilities and an out of the world stun which has straight 3 second duration. Getting hit by Selena’s abilities mark heroes with Abyssal Marks which deal crazy damage making it the main reason for her ban.
Vexana is mostly banned because of her CC and Her ultimate ability (Cursed Oath) which gives her a 12 seconds puppet of the enemy she marked which deals 70% of the hero’s damage and is Tanky.
Gusion is not a pure mage, but is both Mage and Assassin giving him high mobility and high magic damage which melts squishy as well as beefy enemies. Though gusion is not banned much in Mythic ranks as he is countered but is banned in Low tiers.
Top 5 Mobile Legends Fighters November 2018
Fighter is the most offensive role in Mobile Legends and one of the best roles in MOBA as enemies think twice before engaging!
Fighters specialize in melee attacks with decent early game damage and sustain too. And late game? They are monsters! There is no way any other class hero can 1 vs 1 a fighter, not even the insanely damaging Marksmen. Fighters can also initiate a fight and get in on a group of enemy heroes and be disruptive enough to allow his allies to get in and start dealing damage safely.
Mobile Legends has a wide variety of fighters (total 18 – Nov 2018) with unique capabilities. Some focus on crowd control, others may go semi-tank build while some focus on pure damage.
This list will be covering Top 5 fighters which are the most beneficial in a team-fight and not just strong in 1 vs 1 situation. I’m not going to explain skills in detail as you can read them in game itself.
5. RUBY : Ruby is the only fighter that made it to the top 10 heroes list this month officially on mobilelegends.com
Ruby players usually build tank items for higher sustain and focus on crowd controlling enemies. She is the CC queen of MLBB and yes, she can catch a flying fanny 🙂
4. ROGER : Roger still maintains a spot in top 10 popular heroes
Pick Roger when enemy lacks crowd control as he is one of the best mid-late game fighter. His Lycan Pounce can make him immune to stuns and damage multiple enemies in a team-fight. Ignore him and the wolf will definitely wipe out the entire team!
3. CHOU : He protec.. he attac.. but most importantly he throws enemy out in the front lines from his comfort zone
Chou can be the most annoying hero to face in your lane. He can easily defend a lane solo and is gank proof. And his ultimate can pin point the damage dealer with ease.
2. MARTIS : The immune and CC king of Mobile Legends
Martis’ mortal coil (2nd skill) makes him immune to all CC and stuns present in the game. His CC has more priority than anyone else’. He simply dances in a team-fight and also can catch a flying fanny.
1. LEOMORD : The dead knight in shining armor
You certainly do not want a dead wild horse running over you in a team-fight. Leomord is a perfect hero with both amazing damage and amazing CC. Fighting him with low HP is a bad idea as he deals 100% critical damage to enemies with <30% HP. Leomord calls in Barbiel, his partner horse knocking back all enemies in its way. Leomord can mount Barbiel when in contact and charge into enemy with CC and continuous damage while moving and stomping over enemies like they’re nothing. He also has a poke ability using which he can easily solo a lane. Leomord is surely over powered but going to be nerfed soon (Ultimate CD). That won’t make him less dangerous though in a team-fight.
Leomord also holds the highest KDA this month just after Kimmy. Forget Kimmy…she’s broken 🙂

Top 5 Rank Heroes – MLBB
TOP RANK HEROES – MOBILE LEGENDS 2018
Hate when your favorite hero gets banned or picked up by enemy team?
Well..not any more! With back to back releases of heroes and buffs/nerfs for older heroes has now made it possible
for you to use your favorite hero for certain in every rank match.
With so many new and buffed heroes around, its now more likely to get your desired heroes even in the higher ranks. The following
list covers the heroes that once were definite bans but now are free to use. By free I mean they are not likely to get banned like before.
Best Heroes Available for Ranked Matches 2018-19
- 5. Kagura
- 4. Akai
- 3. Martis
- 2. Gusion
- 1. Lancelot
Moonton likes to keep newer heroes strong so with the release of a few more heroes, I’m pretty sure Vexana, Haya will be more free to pick.
What I noticed was with increase in rank, hero banning opinions change. Epic ranked players mostly ban strong easy to play heroes
like Johnson, Lesley (high burst damage), Vexana etc while Mythic ranked players mostly ban Selena, Saber, Hayabusa, Minotaur, Helcurt.
The difference is in the skill levels as in the higher ranks almost every player can play all class heroes and generally don’t focus
on getting their favorites. They take what’s most important for the team keeping in mind what others have chosen.
