Ruby has always been a solid choice for EXP laners or roamers in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, both in professional and ranked games.

While the fighter-tank hero lacks damage, she makes up for it with her troublesome skill set of low-cooldown crowd controls along with a tremendous lifesteal from her Let’s Dance! passive. These enable her to thrive in longer team fights.

Valir is a headache for Ruby due to his spells with knockback, slow, and stun effects, plus an ultimate that not only enhances his abilities but also removes debuffs and grants extra movement speed.

The nightmare of every hero with multiple blinks or dashes, Phoveus can punish Ruby heavily.

Ruby easily triggers Phoveus’ Demonic Force ultimate. Cast it whenever she dashes and use Malefic Terror in between jumps to earn shield and additional movement speed.
