Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) Season 16 is here! Well, since the 20th of March. A couple of days ago, we talked about MLBB’s latest hero, Atlas. Now, we’re going to talk about what else is new this season, specifically: Assassin Buffs! Will this change the way we play MLBB? Let’s see:
Perfumed Knight – Lancelot
Lancelot’s Passive: Soul Cutter used to chug the opponents defense away on his next basic attack every 10 seconds, and he deals an extra 20% damage to those whose defenses were gone. And it lasted 6 seconds. Soul Cutter’s damage is now increased for 4 seconds every time he charges, opening up more ways to deal burst damage, making him more effective at ganking.
Akuma Ninja – Hanzo
3 buffs. First up, Hanzo’s Ninjutsu: Demon Feast. It used to be every 5th basic attack that temporarily unlocked this skill, but now, he unlocks a seal with every basic attack in his human form, and in his demon form, he will thrust forward when all seals are unlocked, damaging and launching enemies in the air.
Next, is Ninjutsu: Soul Reap. Previously, opening a Soul Portal immediately dealt 160 damage (+60% total physical attack). The portal then causes 40 (+15% total physical attack) points of physical damage every 0.5 seconds, slowing enemies by 30% and lasts 4.5 seconds. What’s new now is Soul Reap repeats if an enemy unit is hit, and will not stop unless it reaches its maximum repetition, or fails to hit an enemy.
Lastly, Kinjutsu: Pinnacle Ninja. Previously, it would turn Hanzo into the Supreme Demon Ninja, with 20 points of Demon Blood with the help of the Blood Demon. He dashes forward, gaining 30% movement and attack speed.
Bright Claw – Natalia
First, Natalia’s Passive skill: Assassin’s Instinct. Remaining concealed by staying still in the bushes for 2 seconds without taking or dealing any damage. What’s new, is that if she’s too close to an enemy for a short period of time, she will be revealed. However, she can regain stealth by moving away.
Cold-Blooded Strangling skill: Multiple attacks continuously, therefore dealing 200 damage (+50% extra Physical Attack) slowing the enemy down by 40% in the process. What’s different? Cold-Blooded Strangling will now trigger her Passive: Assassin’s Instinct immediately. As a result, it empowers basic and physical attacks for a few seconds.
To conclude, these are some serious buffs introduced with Season 16, changing the way we play MLBB. Specifically Assassins. Have you tried the new buffs already? Let us know below! And as usual, if you’re looking for (MLBB) Diamonds, SEAGM is the place to go! Go check it out!
