Hero and Battlefield Adjustments and more

With the new update in the Advanced Server, the developers at MOONTON Games have revised some balance changes for heroes, battlefield adjustments for different equipment and more. Let us break down the Patch 1.8.40 Update for Mobile Legends in detail.

Mobile Legends Patch 1.8.40 Update: Hero Adjustments

Masha (Buffed)

Masha’s adjustments didn’t meet our expectations: Masha’s damage-dealing abilities are overpowered with enough equipment, but she’s still not durable enough, and the HP cost of her skills is also too high. Developers are now trying to solve these issues.

Passive (↑)

  • New Effect: Gains 25% extra Physical and Magic Defense with 2 HP bars. Gains 50% extra Physical and Magic Defense with 1 HP bar.
  • New Effect: She now removes all debuffs when only 1 HP bar is left.

Skill 1 (↓)

  • HP Cost: 25% >> 15%
  • Base Damage: 0-100 >> 0-50
  • Percentage of the Target’s Max HP: 2.5%-4% >> 2.5%
  • Movement Speed Boost: 35% >> 15%-40%
  • HP Regen Ratio from Damage on Minions: 50% >> 100%

Skill 2 (↓)

New Effect: Restores extra Energy upon hitting a non-Minion target.

HP Cost: 10%>> 5%

Ultimate (↓)

Extra HP-Based Percentage Damage: 15%-25% >> 10%-20%

Silvanna (Buffed)

Experimental Adjustments: Silvanna has seen little use for a while, so developers are looking to make her more agile by giving her Blink when her Skill 1 doesn’t hit and improving her pursuit, flee, and teamfight abilities, as well as increasing her Ultimate hits.

Skill 1 (↑)

  • Skill Revamp: It now has only one stage where she dashes in the target direction, dealing damage to nearby enemies and stunning them. The dash distance is reduced.
  • Cooldown: 12-9s >> 8s

Skill 2 (~)

Cooldown: 9-7s, upon skill casting >> 7-5s, after the skill ends

Ultimate (↑)

Casting: Select a location >> Lock onto a target

Cici (Nerfed)

Some equipment adjustments have benefited Cici too much. Developers are slightly nerfing her early to mid-game abilities.

Passive (↓)

Spell Vamp Per Stack of Delight: 1.5% >> 1%

Skill 1 (↓)

Percentage Damage Based on Target’s HP: 4-6.5 (+1% Extra Physical Attack)% >> 3.5-5.5 (+ 1.3% Extra Physical Attack) %

Skill 2 (↑)

Further optimized the control experience of this skill.

Bruno (Nerfed)

Developers are reducing Bruno’s early to mid-game damage to avoid his overuse in high-rank and pro play.

Skill 1 (↓)

Base Damage: 120-270 >> 100-225

Nana (Nerfed)

Mobile Legends Patch 1.6.84 Update

Revamped Nana: After some tests, devs have decided to keep her Skill 2 adjustments and revert some of her Ultimate’s adjustments.

Skill 2 (↑)

  • Control Duration: 1.5s >> 1.8s
  • Slow Effect: 50%-70% >> 30%
  • New Effect: Nana transforms all enemy heroes in the target area, and if there are none in range, leaves Molina’s minion there that lasts 5s.

Skill 3 (↑)

Optimizations: The three-stage explosions are faster and smoother.

Guinevere (Nerfed)

After the previous adjustments, Guinevere is unstoppable with her tanky defence, damage, and control. She needs to hit more with her Skill 1 to increase the use of her Skill 2 in the early to mid-game.

Skill 1 (~)

Damage: 400-625 + 100% Total Magic Power >> 300-525 + 125% Total Magic Power

Skill 2 (↓)

Cooldown: 17-14s >> 20-14s

Terizla (Nerfed)

Terizla’s Ultimate has become a greater threat with easier skill use. Therefore, developers are adjusting its CCs and casting frequency.

Ultimate (~)

  • Slow Effect: 45%-65% >> 25%-45%
  • Cooldown: 40-30s >> 50-36s

An issue was fixed where enemies would still be slowed after leaving the Ultimate’s range.

Aurora (Buffed)

Ultimate (↑)

Delay: 1.5s >> 1.2s

Mobile Legends Patch 1.8.40 Update: Battlefield and Hero Adjustments

Battlefield Adjustments

Scavenger Crabs

  • Scavenger Crabs now drop items that last longer.
  • Slightly adjusted the items dropped by Scavenger Crabs.

Equipment changes

War Axe (~)

Developers want War Axe to feel more unique and unexpected.

  • Each Stack: 16 Physical Attack >> 12 Physical Attack
  • Full Stacks: 15% extra damage >> 10% True Damage

Brute Force Breastplate (~)

  • Developers want Brute Force Breastplate to be compatible with more heroes.
  • Each Stack: 8 Physical Attack >> 6 Physical Attack & 6 Magic Power

Developers have created a new Main Interface hero of Cici.
