All Mobile Legends Battle Spells

Mobile Legends features various battle spells to help players gain an advantage in different situations. Check all of them out in this article.


1. Retribution

A crucial battle spell for junglers that deals extra true damage to jungle monsters and provides a significant bonus to gold and experience earned from jungle creeps. This allows junglers to clear monsters quickly and secure jungle objectives.

The Challenge: Steal jungle objectives 

Do this by reserving your retribution to use on stealing enemy jungle or securing major jungle objectives, this ensures that your team gets the buff and gold even when the enemy team harasses you in the jungle areas.

Retribution takes about 35 seconds to cool down and levels up based on how many times you use it. Make sure to maximize its use but keep it available for jungle dances. 

How it works: 

  • Preserve your retribution on your first buff take
  • Use retribution on the litho wanderer instead so you can reach level 4 first
  • If available, always use your retribution to steal the enemy jungle and not give them the buff
  • Make sure to have your retribution ready by the time the Turtles and the Lords spawn
