ML Patch 1.5.88 Hero Balance Changes

Argus

Argus’ ultimate skill has a very long cooldown which impacts his overall presence in the game. The devs have lowered it by 5 seconds to help him maximize his potential. 

Alpha

The devs made adjustments to Alpha’s damage scaling from his passive.

Passive

  • Damage Bonus for Beta’s 2 attacks: from 40% Total Physical Damage  to 70% Extra Physical Attack
  • Damage Bonus for Beta’s 3rd attack: from 80% Total Physical Damage  to 130% Extra Physical Attack

Natan

The devs made changes to his lifesteal effects and will now convert Physical Lifesteal into Magic Lifesteal.

(NEW) Passive

  • Every point of Physical Lifesteal will be converted to Magic Lifesteal. 

1st Skill

  • Adjusted to shoot two separate projectiles in the targeted direction.

ML Patch 1.5.88 Item/ Equipment Balance Changes

Active Item Restrictions

Players can only purchase one item with an active skill. Items like Lightning Truncheon and Wind of Nature can no longer be bought together. 

Only one active Equipment can be purchased.

Lifesteal Effect Changes

The devs removed the ability to apply lifesteal to direct damage from equipment, emblems, and Battle Spells. This means that items like the Bloodlust Axe will no longer activate lifesteal. However, normal attacks and hero abilities can still activate it.  

Twilight Armor

Lowered the requirement to activate its passive effect. The effect now activates when a hero receives 600 or more physical damage in one hit instead of 800. 

Odd Potion

The item Odd Potion has been changed to Throw Forbidden. The item’s effect remains the same, to prevent your ally Jawhead from throwing you. 


This new Mobile Legends Patch 1.5.88 update is only for the advanced server and is yet to be released on the regular servers. Players will have to keep their eyes peeled for upcoming announcements from Moonton.
