Once considered a niche pick, she now boasts a high pick rate in both ranked and competitive play.
She is the only hero to have more than one health bar in the game. She also deals an increasing amount of damage the lower her health is, making her a priority pick against team compositions with no burst damage heroes.
Luckily, there are a few worthy heroes who can shut her down in the EXP lane. Here are three hero counters to Masha in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.
3 heroes you can use to counter Masha in the EXP lane
Masha’s main damage comes from her first skill, Wild Power, which increases her basic attack’s physical damage. Belerick is one who thrives against heroes who heavily rely on basic attacks .
First off, Belerick’s passive, Deadly Thorns, deals damage to the nearest hero every time he receives damage.
Ancient Seed, his first skill, also taunts enemies caught in its path. Two of those skills are enough to give her a run for her life. Once Belerick catches Masha, she will be forced to auto-attack Belerick and activate Deadly Thorns.
Moreover, things will get worse once Belerick completes Blade Armor, as he can shred her HP bar in a 1v1. There’s a reason why people consider Belerick as the bane of every marksman and basic attack-reliant hero, for he’s basically a walking Blade Armor in the Land of Dawn.
Baxia is a great pick against heroes who like to get up close and personal in team fights. Baxia’s passive also allows him to decrease the healing capabilities of enemy heroes who attack him, making it perfect against the likes of Masha, who now goes for the overpowered three Guardian Helmets build.
In team fights, Baxia can activate Tortoise’s Puissance to constantly deal damage around him while using Shield of Spirit to slow them down.
Baxia-Shield Unity can also be used when Masha is escaping, as the skill gives him a movement speed boost that’s a lot faster compared to the movement speed she receives during Wild Power.
While it may be tempting to build some magic items to further increase his damage, it’s advisable to go full defensive build because Baxia already has enough base damage.
Dyrroth can quickly eliminate Masha in the early game as long as you have your ultimate, Abysm strike, available.
While the Prince of Abyss will have a harder time in a 1v1, what makes Dyrroth a threat against the Wild-Oats Fist is that he still has reasonable damage even with defensive items.
Abysm Strike also stops Masha from reaching her full damage potential once her HP is low, as the ultimate skill deals more damage the lower the enemy’s life is. Once she has only one bar of HP remaining, Dyrroth can quickly cast his ultimate to deal the killing blow.
