Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) Patch 1.6.18 update has been released, bringing a slew of new features along with a complete overhaul of the in-game interface. Also, huge balance changes have been implemented for heroes as well as gameplay. Four heroes will be receiving a revamp in the MLBB Patch 1.6.18 update such as Lancelot, Odette, Hayabusa, and Kagura. Balance changes for a ton of heroes have been implemented to spice up the meta and keep some of the overwhelming heroes from having too much of an impact in matches. A new day and night system that syncs up with real-time day and night cycles has also been implemented for the main menu of the game, in this latest patch.

Mobile Legends Patch 1.6.18: New Content

New Hero: Floryn

A new support hero arrives in the game with a rather unique ability to grant one ally an extra inventory slot and an item that upgrades the ally’s hero’s stats as the game progresses.

Passive – Dew

  • Floryn carries Dew’s Lantern with her. The Lantern can accumulate energy each time Floryn hits an enemy with a skill, and both Dew and the Lantern will evolve once the energy is full.

  • When at the Fountain, Floryn can share the Lantern’s power with an allied hero, granting them an extra piece of equipment that does not take up equipment slots. The equipment will reveal its true power after the Lantern evolves.

  • Floryn’s Initial Equipment: Grants Floryn 20 Magic Power and 5% Movement Speed.

  • Initial Shareable Equipment: Grants an allied hero 250 Max HP.

  • Floryn’s Evolved Equipment: Grants Floryn 40 Magic Power, 10% Movement Speed, 5% Cooldown Reduction, and enhances Floryn’s skills.

  • Evolved Shareable Equipment: Grants an allied hero 500 Max HP and 8% Physical Attack and Magic Power.

Skill 1 – Sow

  • Floryn tosses an Energy Seed at a designated enemy, dealing Magic Damage. Healing Fruits will then spawn and bounce to nearby allies, restoring a certain amount of HP for them.

Skill 2 – Sprout

  • Floryn borrows Dew’s power and casts a blob of energy in a designated direction, dealing damage to the enemy hit. After a short delay, the energy will deal damage to enemies in an area and stun them.

Ultimate – Bloom

  • Floryn resonates with Dew’s power, healing all allied heroes 2 times (ignores distance). The overflowing energy will also deal damage to nearby enemies each time the healing takes effect.

Mobile Legends Patch 1.6.18: Balance Changes

Lancelot Revamp

Skill 1 – Puncture

  • Lancelot charges in a designated direction, dealing Physical Damage to enemies along the way and applying a Sword Mark to the first unmarked enemy hit.

  • If Lancelot successfully applies a Sword Mark to an enemy, the cooldown of this skill will reset.

Odette Revamp

Skill 2 – Blue Nova

  • Odette releases a set of magic energy balls forward, dealing damage to the enemy hit and immobilizing them. Another energy ball will then spawn and attack a nearby enemy (prioritizes enemy heroes), dealing damage and immobilizing them.

Skill 3 – Swan Song

  • Compared with the older version, Odette can now leap a short distance while casting Swan Song, and the previous Damage Reduction has been replaced with a more obvious shield effect.

Skill 3 – Ougi: Shadow Kill

  • Hayabusa’s Ultimate can now launch multiple attacks on enemies, and the number of attacks will increase as he levels up. The attacks will prioritize enemies with Shadow Marks from his Passive, each attack consuming a stack and dealing extra damage.

Kagura Revamp

Skill 1 – Seimei Umbrella Open

  • Kagura moves Seimei Umbrella to a designated area, dealing Magic Damage to enemies along the way and slowing them.

Ultimate – Yin Yang Overturn Without Seimei Umbrella

  • When without Seimei Umbrella, Kagura immediately resets Seimei Umbrella Open’s cooldown, deals damage to enemies around Seimei Umbrella, and slows them.
