A new hero named Joy has been revealed on the advanced server of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB). The new hero is a member of the Leonin, similar to other heroes like Nana and Harith. The abilities of the new Mage-Assassin hero have also been revealed by data miners. Classified as a Mage-Assassin, the abilities of the new MLBB hero Joy are themed around dancing and music. She boasts high mobility with crowd control immunity and blink abilities. The new hero is currently being tested on the advanced server of MLBB and may receive changes to her gameplay before she gets released on the regular server.

What we know about the new MLBB hero Joy

Through a video posted by Kazuki Official, players can get a sneak peek at the new hero’s abilities. Joy’s mechanics are unique in comparison to other heroes as her third ability can only be used when a specific condition is met.

Here is a quick summary of her abilities;

Passive: Humph, Joy’s Angry!

Joy becomes “Angry!” for four seconds each time her skill deals damage to a non-minion enemy. While under this buff, she gains 100% extra movement speed and 16% Damage Reduction. The effect can only be triggered once every four seconds on the same enemy.

Additionally, Joy’s Basic Attack deals Magic Damage.

Skill 1: Look, Leonin Crystal!

Joy summons a Leonine Crystal at the target location dealing Magic Damage to nearby enemies. The Leonine Crystal stays for a brief period and can be used as a springboard for “Meow, Rhythm of Joy!”

Skill 2: Meow, Rhythm of Joy!

Joy dashes in the target direction, dealing Magic Damage to enemies in her path. Hitting an enemy or a Leonine Crystal allows joy to enter “Beat Time!”

Beat Time: For 1 second, Joy is immune to crowd control effects and can cast this skill again up to five times. If cast again, “Meow, Rhythm of Joy!” deals 60% increased Damage (can stack). Additionally, Players can also Turn up the volume and vibe to the rhythm of Joy’s music.

Skill 3: Ha, Electrifying Beats!

This ability can only be used after Joy casts “Meow, Rhythm of Joy!” 5 times in succession. Joy removes all crowd control effects on her and releases the stored energy, gaining 30% extra Movement Speed and Slow Immunity for four seconds and deals Magic Damage to nearby enemies 8 times over the duration.

Each “Meow, Rhythm of Joy!” cast on the beat increases this skill’s damage by 25%. Enemies hit by this skill multiple times take reduced damage (goes as low as 60%).

Fans should take note that the new hero is still in development. Changes may be made to her abilities which may affect her playstyle once she gets released on the regular server.

When is the new MLBB hero Joy releasing?

Moonton is yet to officially reveal the release date for Joy on the regular server. The new hero is currently only made available on the advanced server of MLBB. Fans will have to keep their eyes peeled for more updates in the future.

It seems like Joy’s abilities are quite complicated and could pose a challenge for players who want to try her in matches. Nonetheless, the new hero looks fun and players may even enjoy the unique musical beats of her abilities.
