His primary offensive weapon is his Power of Nature, which allows him to charge up to deal massive damage while being immune to crowd control effects. On the other hand, Guardian’s Barrier allows him to summon a stone wall that blocks enemy movement, effectively controlling the battlefield.
But his bread-and-butter skill is his ultimate, Wild Charge, which gives him the ability to charge in a specific direction, deal substantial physical damage, and knock back enemies.
Despite his impressive strengths, the Fortress Titan can be stopped if you know which heroes to choose when playing against him.
Picking heroes that can outmaneuver or outrange him can effectively reduce his impact in the game. Likewise, heroes with crowd control abilities can limit their movements and make them easier to deal with. Here are three of the most effective picks when facing Grock.
Three strong counters to Grock in Mobile Legends
Lylia is a mage hero known for her extraordinary burst damage— one that can make even the sturdy Grock wince.
Her Shadow Energy and Angry Gloom can quickly whittle down the Fortress Titan’s health. It also allows her to control the battlefield effectively. By strategically placing her Glooms, she can restrict the opposing tank’s movements and force him into unfavorable positions.
Furthermore, her passive skill, Magic Shockwave, along with her ultimate, Black Shoes, provide her with increased speed and mobility. This allows her to dodge Grock’s crowd-control abilities and keep a safe distance from him.
When playing Lylia versus Grock, remember to keep a safe distance from the tank to avoid his crowd-control abilities. Your Magic Shockwave passive will help you maintain this distance.
Use your Shadow Energy and Angry Gloom to deal damage to the enemy hero continuously and make sure to capture your Glooms at the right time to maximize your damage output.
Finally, use your Black Shoes ultimate when escaping from Grock’s crowd control abilities or when you want to regain lost HP and mana during engagements.
Karrie’s ability to deal considerable true damage, coupled with high mobility, makes her an excellent choice to counter Grock’s defensive prowess.
The Lost Star’s passive skill, Lightwheel Mark, deals true damage based on the enemies’ max HP. This ability cuts through the Fortress Titan’s defenses, making Karrie a nightmare matchup for the tank.
Moreover, her second ability, Phantom Step, provides her with increased speed and mobility which allows her to dodge Grock’s crowd-control abilities and keep a safe distance from him.

To send the tank reeling, you need to build on Karrie’s unique offensive kit. The Golden Staff item can enhance her ability to inflict more damage on the enemy tank by triggering her passive skill more often.
Remember to use Karrie’s second ability, Phantom Step, wisely. A timely activation of this ability will help you maintain a distance from him, and provide you with the speed boost to continually shred him.
Another mage that can put Grock on his heels is Valir. The hero has incredible crowd control abilities and high burst damage that can make the tank’s life a nightmare.
His Searing Torrent ability provides excellent crowd control, capable of disrupting the tank’s abilities and keeping him at bay. His Burst Fireball, on the other hand, can deal significant damage to the Fortress Titan, even considering his high durability.
But what makes Valir a formidable counter hero to Grock is his ultimate, Vengeance Flame, which grants him the ability to debuff crowd control effects. This effectively makes him resistant to the opposing tank’s disruptive abilities.

When you’re playing Valir against a Grock, make sure to use your abilities from a safe distance. Your Burst Fireball and Searing Torrent have good range, allowing you to poke and harass the tank without getting too close.
It’s also crucial to time your ultimate activation. It not only enhances your other abilities but also provides immunity to crowd control. Use it when Grock tries to engage, nullifying his crowd control effects and turning the battle in your favor.
