Revamped Heroes, Hero Adjustments and more

Developers at MOONTON Games have introduced a new Revamped Hero in the form of Aurora along with a lot of Balance changes to different heroes in the Mobile Legends Advanced Server. Additionally, they have brought new changes to types of equipment, a new setting to the draft-pick phase and more. Let us break down the Patch 1.8.24 Update in the Mobile Legends Advanced Server.

Revamped Heroes: Frost Oracle – Aurora

Control Master: Developers have completely redesigned Aurora’s gameplay. While retaining her high-damage combos, they have added a unique AOE control ability to her. She can now even control Turrets! Furthermore, devs have redesigned Aurora’s look and will continue to optimize the visual effects for her skin and character model in the following patches.

Passive

  • Aurora freezes herself for 1.33s. She becomes Invincible during this time, and gradually recovers 20% Max HP. This effect has a 150s cooldown.
  • Aurora’s freeze effects can affect Turrets.

Skill 1

Aurora summons 5 hailstones in turn that bombard the target location, dealing Magic Damage and reducing the target’s Movement Speed.

Skill 2

Aurora blows frigid air in the target direction, dealing Magic Damage to enemies hit and creating an ice storm at the far end of the attack that deals continuous Magic Damage. Enemies hit by the ice storm will be frozen.

Skill 3

  • Aurora summons a frost blast in the target’s direction, dealing Magic Damage to all enemies in the path and reducing the target’s Movement Speed. The frost blast gradually becomes glaciers that spread until they reach their maximum size shattering, dealing Magic Damage to all enemies in the area and freezing targets.
  • Aurora’s Freezing Time increases by 0.1s for every 100 Magic Power gained.

Mobile Legends Patch 1.8.24 Update: Hero Adjustments

The following uses (↑) (↓) (~) to indicate Buff, Nerf, and Adjustments. Due to this round of hero adjustments, developers will be taking down all of Balmond’s skins for the time being.

Argus (Buffed)

Experimental Adjustments: Argus’s current gameplay is a bit too bland. His Ultimate seems to be both offensive and defensive, but in fact, it’s difficult to achieve the desired effect. The Curse Damage of Meteoric Sword constitutes a lot of his strength, but it doesn’t match his style of spamming Basic Attack. Therefore, they decided to redesign Argus’s skill set and combat experience.

Passive (↑)

  • Extra Physical Damage: 155 + 100% Total Physical Attack >> 100% Total Physical Attack
  • New Effect: Extra Attack ignores 50% of the target’s Physical Defense.
  • The Skill Recharge logic of the Malice Energy has been adjusted from recharging based on the damage dealt, to recharging every second and on every Basic Attack (critical hit grants extra recharge).

Skill 1 (~)

  • They have slightly reduced the dash distance when used again
  • They have Increased the dash speed when used again.

Skill 2 (↑)

  • New Effect: The Meteoric Sword damage now counts as Basic Attack damage and can trigger Attack Effect.
  • New Effect: The Meteoric Sword’s attack interval now shortens as the Attack Speed increases.
  • New Effect: Argus’ Basic Attack against a cursed target will grant double Malice Energy charging speed.
  • Removed Effect: Curse no longer deals damage.

Skill 3 (~)

  • New Effect: Argus passively increases the charging speed of the Malice Energy.
  • Removed Effect: Argus permanently gains 10-30 Physical Attacks.

Yi Sun-shin (Adjusted)

Experimental Adjustments: Developers have reworked Yi Sun-shin’s Passive to make his Basic Attack purpose clearer. The arrow damage of his Skill 2 has also been greatly increased to create the experience that Yi Sun-shin can destroy the enemy with a single attack after hitting them with a fully charged shot.

Passive (~)

Revamped Effect: The longbow’s Basic Attack will add Battle Scars to the target, up to 4 stacks. The Glaive’s Basic Attack can consume all the Battle Scars on the target and increase the damage of that Basic Attack.

Skill 1 (~)

Revamped CD Reduction: Each Battle Scars stack consumed reduces this skill’s cooldown by 1s.

Skill 2 (~)

  • Developers have removed the slash for Skill 2
  • Arrow Damage: 240-240 + 80% Total Physical Attack >> 240-390 + 80%-130% Total Physical Attack
  • This skill can add Battle Scars to the target, and the number of stacks added will increase with the charging time.
