July 15, 2020 Kahleed has arrived in Mobile Legends, and we’ve updated this guide to reflect that.
What are the upcoming Mobile Legends new heroes? There are currently 95 heroes in the Mobile Legends roster, and this wildly popular mobile MOBA is keeping us on our toes by constantly announcing brand new Mobile Legends characters that are prepared to enter the fray. The newest Mobile Legends heroes are launched on the advanced server before making their way to the general public, so we already have some idea of their identity and skills, although these are constantly being modified and balanced before their grand arrival in the game.
Not only are we anticipating brand new Mobile Legends heroes, but Moonton are also hard at work reworking some of their older or more imbalanced characters, and are currently testing out their revamped versions on the Advanced server as well, where they’re undoubtedly making waves in the Mobile Legends tier list.
The newest Mobile Legends character on the main server is Luo Yi, the yin-yang geomancer. She was added to the game on May 16 as a free hero, but if you didn’t log in to claim her at the time, you’ll need to unlock her using Battle Points or Diamonds. We don’t have a known release date for the Mobile Legends upcoming heroes yet, but we expect to see the new characters migrate from the Advanced servers very soon.
The latest Mobile Legends new heroes are:
Khaleed, the Desert Soldier, is a Fighter class Mobile Legends new hero – the most recent upcoming Mobile Legends hero to make it into the game. Here’s what to expect from him:
- Passive: Sand Walk
Khaleed will accumulate the power of the desert, and when it is full, he will move forward through the sand, increasing his movement speed by 5%, and strengthening the next ordinary attack. Sand Walk’s enhanced normal attack will cause Khaleed to charge a target with a surging sand wave that will cause 125% physical damage to enemies in a straight range, and leave a pool of sand on the ground. Khaleed’s movement speed will increase on the sand, and enemy movement speed will decrease.
- Desert Tornado
Khaleed makes a tornado using sand blade to cause 185 (+189) physical damage to the surrounding enemies, as long as he hits the enemy, he can push the joystick to make a jump. After landing, he will automatically perform another ranged attack to cause the same damage.
- Quicksand Guard
Khaleed relies on the power of quicksand to protect himself, recovering 20 (+362) health per second and reducing the damage taken by 30% for 9 seconds, while the presence of quicksand on the bottom of the foot reduces the movement speed of the enemy.
- Raging Sandstorm
Khaleed summons a sandstorm to rush to the designated location, causing 1 physical damage and continuous propulsion effect to the enemies in the path. Khaleed will hit the ground after reaching the end point, causing 1000 physical damage and stun effects.
Yu Zhong, the Black Fierce Dragon, arrived before Khaleed. Yu Zhong is a formidable Fighter class hero whose ultimate sees him transform into a dragon and soar across the battlefield, stunning foes and traversing terrain before landing again and doing increased damage as a powerful dragon/human hybrid. Thanks to his passive, he can recover from low health incredibly quickly.
- Cursing Touch
Yu Zhong applies Sha Residue to the target every time he does damage to enemy heroes or creeps, and gathers Sha Essence in the meantime
Sha Residue erupts upon reaching 5 stacks, consuming 1 stack every 0.25s. Each stack consumption deals 40(+30%Extra Physical ATK)+2% of the target’s HP lost as Physical Damage, restores 8% of his HP lost and gathers 8 Sha Essence for Yu Zhong. When Sha Essence is fully charged, Yu Zhong gains 40% Movement Speed and 25% Spell Vamp.
- Dragon Tail
Yu Zhong infuses his power into his cloak and turns it into a weapon. After a short delay, the cloak starts to attack nearby enemies, dealing 400 / 460 / 520 / 580 (+250% Extra Physical Attack) Physical Damage with its sharpened edge. This skill benefits 200% of Spell Vamp. Enemies caught near the center area of the cloak only take 40% of damage.
- Soul Grip
Yu Zhong unleashes the Dragon Soul, dealing 150 / 175 / 200 / 225 (+100% Extra Physical Attack) Physical Damage to all enemies in front and slowing them by 60% for 1s. Upon target hit, Yu Zhong’s next Basic Attack will be enhanced, dealing additional Physical Damage. (Upon multiple target hit, Yu Zhong applies Sha Residue multiple times with the enhanced Basic Attack, dealing up to 200% damage.)
- Furious Dive
Yu Zhong leaps towards the designated area with his full strength, dealing Physical Damage. He is able to dash one more time in the movement direction. After a short delay, enemies within the area of effect will be knocked airborne for 1s and take additional Physical Damage.
- Black Dragon Form
Yu Zhong transforms into Black Dragon form and starts charging. In up to 5.5s, he becomes invincible and ignores obstacles, knocking enemy heroes on the path back and dealing Physical Damage to them. Upon exiting the Black Dragon form, Yu Zhong deals the same amount of damage to enemies nearby, and enters Dragonoid form for 10s with the help of the remaining influence of the Black Dragon. The Dragonoid form increases Yu Zhong’s max HP and improves the range of all his skills.
Upcoming new heroes: who’s on the test server right now?
Luo Yi, a mage class Mobile Legends hero, is the newest character to be added to the official roster on the main server. She’s proven particularly strong in teamfights thanks to her skills – she will need to ensure her enemies have opposing Yin/Yang marks, but can then dish out substantial damage and control. Her ultimate allows her to reposition the whole team simultaneously, although it requires a degree of cooperation you might not find in solo queue.
- Passive: Duality
Luo Yi’s skills create marks of Yin and Yang on the battlefield, each lasting up to 6s. Yin-Yang Reaction happens whenever two bearers of opposite marks come close to each other, causing 420(+14*Hero Level)(+140%Total Magic Power) Magic Damage and stunning them for 1s. Each time Luo Yi applies a new mark to a mark bearer, she gains 300(+10*Hero Level)(+120%Total Magic Power) shield (capped at 3 stacks) and 30% of movement speed (decays rapidly in 2s).
Luo Yi casts the energy of Yang/Yin in a designated direction, dispersing upon the first hit and dealing 230(100%Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to the target and enemies behind in a fan-shaped area, applying Mark of Yang/Yin to enemy Heroes hit.
Luo Yi gains a stack of Dispersion every 8s, up to 4 stacks. She gains an additional 1 stacks each time Yin-Yang Reaction happens. Shift the state of the skill upon skill cast.
Luo Yi summons Fire of Yang/Aqua of Yin in a designated area, dealing 250(+50%Total Magic Power)Magic Damage on targets hit and slowing them by 60% for 0.5s.
Fire of Yang/Aqua of Yin lasts for 6s, dealing 50(+10% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage every 0.7s, causing continuous Yin-Yang Reaction with nearby units.
Shift the state of the skill upon skill cast.
CD of every skill reduced by 2%.
Active: Luo Yi creates a teleport circle around herself. After 3s, she sends any allied heroes in the circle to another location on the battlefield (within 18 range).
Benedetta arrived on the Advanced server in the latest patch – she’s a powerful Assassin type hero with good mobility thanks to her ability to dash, and amazing defence from her second skill, An Eye for An Eye, which lets her block damage and makes her impossible to CC. At the moment, Benedetta looks very overpowered – most Mobile Legends new heroes arrive disproportionately powerful and dominate games for a while before being balanced a little more and finding their spot in the meta.
- Passive: Elapsed Daytime
When holding down the Basic Attack button, Benedetta enters the Swordout state and keeps gathering the Sword Intent. If releasing the Basic Attack button after the Sword Intent is fully charged, Benedetta will use Swordout Slash in the direction she’s facing and dash forward, dealing Physical damage (identified as Skill Damage) to enemies on the path. Only when Benedetta is in Swordout state and her Sword Intent is fully charged by holding down the Basic Attack button, she can release the Swordout Slash. Benetetta can also gain Sword Intent when dealing damage via Basic Attack and Skills.
- Shadow Slash
Benedetta withdraws swiftly and leaves a shadow in front. After a short delay, her shadow slashes forward in a fan-shaped area, dealing Physical Damage. Meanwhile, Benedetta dashes forward to slash, dealing Physical damage. (If the target is hit by her shadow, damage caused by Benedetta herself will increase.)
- An Eye for An Eye
Benedetta raises her weapon to defend, gaining Control Immunity and blocking damage 1 time from any source for a period of time. After defense, she stabs in a designated direction, dealing Physical Damage and slowing the target. If Benedetta defends a CC effect successfully during defense, she will inflict stun on the target instead of slow.
- Alecto: Final Blow
Benedetta clenches Alecto and slashes forward after a short delay (invincible while dashing), slowing all targets on the path. After dashing, Benedetta detonates the Sword Intent on the path, strangling the enemy with the Sword Intent, dealing Physical Damage and slowing the enemy every several seconds.
