Mobile Legends Guide [25 Useful Tips Every Player Should Know]

Utilize these tips to Rank Up in Mobile Legends.

Mobile Legends is a tactical game, instilled in the spirit of battle. Various factors stand out before and during a game, these range from


25. Farm First, Don’t Troll

Each participant at the start of the game determines this strategy. Core Heroes scout the jungle for creeps and buffs to enhance team gold. In lanes, minions heading to the other base are cleared for the same reason. This increases items purchased toward a hero's build, enhancing speed and attack.

Trolling early in the game increases the odds of being killed, which adds to the opposition's gold and helps them construct items to assault a weakened opposing team. Farm first to even the odds or gain team gold. The turtle is a vital source of team gold and should be emphasized when behind in gold count.


24. Focus on Objectives

As in any team sport or game, it's important to know your role. Each hero's role contributes to a team's win or loss in Mobile Legends.Knowing each hero category’s role is essential.

A Tank initiates, pokes, and sets up team fights and attacks. A fighter clears the Exp Lane to earn team gold. A mage deals massive damage and should push the middle lane. Marksmen with range are recommended for the Gold Lane, while assassins are utilized in the jungle and in assaulting squishy opponents.


23. Middle Lane

The middle lane is the most important lane in Mobile Legends. It ought to be guarded for as long as possible during battle.

The middle lane is a key strategic tower that enables a team to gain access to the enemy team's jungle. This results in stealing farm, which significantly impacts the gold count for and against, and determines which team levels up first in power and build.


22. Assassin Tip

Assassins are best utilized in the jungle, and ought to utilize the element of surprise in attack while concealed by the jungle. Assassins should only target tanks if they are low in HP or have utilized their core skills.

Assassins are high damage dealing assault heroes, and should prey on high damage squishy heroes in opposition. Taking out enemies is the best method to level up early in team gold but is a risk, as assassins are squishy as well and being killed has the same effect on the opposition.


21. Farming

Each team should have a core hero, preferably an assassin or fighter, depending on circumstances. This hero will have retribution as their match battle spell that enhances farming and team gold count.

Do not farm without retribution, as it limits potential gold that could be worth more. In late stages of the game however, farming may be important for power and build. Always make sure there is a core hero in each team, and be ready to take on this role if needed.

The right time to kill The Lord is after a wipe out, by annihilating all opponents, or more better when the enemy core is taken out. It is also important to keep an eye on the opposition damage dealers, mages and marksmen when attempting The Lord.


16. Learn All Hero Roles

In your quest to get to Mythic, not all teammates will be accommodating and willing to adjust to your preference during the selection stage. It is a team sport, and understanding this goes a long way.

12. Don’t Feed

11. Push Lanes

Laning is the most important phase of Mobile Legends. It is important that you push lanes throughout all stages of the game, despite your role.

The impact of pushing lanes is realized in the late game, especially when teams are locked head to head. Pushing lanes and gaining access to enemy territory is essential for ambush and access to enemy jungle.

Knowing your hero’s various roles helps, due to the fact that random team mates will expect you to fill these roles without the time or means of informing you. It is extremely vital that you learn to read and adjust to your hero in terms of their capability and availability.


6. Practice

If you have a hero that has a win rate of less than 40%, it is officially recognized in Mobile Legends that you lack skill and mastery with that hero.
