Rafaela is a popular choice for support main players in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.

She can heal her allies while boosting their movement speed, thanks to her signature skill, Holy Healing.

Furthermore, she can slow down enemies using Light of Retribution, and stun them with her ultimate, Holy Baptism.

If you’re looking for suitable heroes to counter Rafaela, you may want to consider selecting any of the following heroes.

What sets Mathilda apart from other support heroes is her ability to unleash burst damage using Soul Bloom and Circling Eagle.

Using Hero Lock Mode, target Rafaela with Circling Eagle, and activate Soul Bloom while airborne. After charging at her, release Soul Bloom and enhanced basic attack from Ancestral Guidance to deal a massive amount of damage.

If she is too far away, use Guiding Wind to close in while enabling a teammate to follow you and help you in taking her down.

Hayabusa is an incredibly nimble assassin hero that can easily target Rafaela and swiftly slay her.

Use Ninjutsu: Quad Shadow to close the distance against her. Follow up with Ninjutsu: Phantom Shuriken and basic attacks to apply four Shadow Marks onto her.

Finish her off using Ougi: Shadow Kill, then disengage by jumping to a Quad Shadow.

To maximize your damage potential and ensure a quick kill with your combo, buy Hunter Strike, Malefic Roar, and Blade of Despair.

Tank hero Baxia is a bane to heroes reliant on healing abilities due to his passive, Baxia Mark. It significantly reduces the shield and HP regen of enemies while bolstering his tankiness.

Begin your assault against Rafaela with Baxia-Shield Unity. Once you have narrowed the gap, trigger Tortoise’s Puissance and persistently chase her down.

Strike her with Shield of Spirit repeatedly to force her away from her team while slowing her down.

Purchase Dominance Ice to further weaken her healing spell. Additionally, focus on building defensive items based on the opposing team’s composition to strengthen your overall defense.
