As the Prince of the Abyss, Dyrroth harnesses the power of darkness to become a fearsome fighter hero in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.

He can shred enemies using his ability to weaken their physical defense, allowing him to easily bring down squishy mages and marksmen in the backline.

He can unleash burst damage, and inflict multiple slow effects on enemies, while having a strong spell vamp through his passive.

To truly master playing as Dyrroth, it’s important to have a solid understanding of his abilities and how to use them effectively.

This in-depth guide covers everything you need to know, from the best build, recommended battle spells and emblems, to skill tips and combos that can help you dominate the game.

Dyrroth’s skills in Mobile Legends

Passive – Wrath of the Abyss

When Dyrroth’s Rage reaches one of the two bars, he will enhance his first two active skills, Burst Strike and Spectre Step.

After every two basic attacks, he will release Circle Strike, dealing physical damage to enemies in the circle and regenerating HP according to the damage he deals (Circle Strike doesn’t have an attack effect). Each time he hits an enemy hero, the cooldown of Burst Strike and Spectre Step will be decreased by one second.

  • He has two Rage bars, letting you cast the enhanced Burst Strike and Spectre Step consecutively.
  • An enhanced skill consumes one bar of his Rage.
  • Before attacking your target, ensure that the Rage bars are full or you have at least one.
  • Attacking minions and creeps fills his Rage.
  • As much as possible, go to the middle of a minion wave to maximize Circle Strike.
  • Circle Strike can critically strike, and benefits from physical lifesteal as well as skill effects.
  • However, HP regeneration from Circle Strike is halved against minions, and deals the same damage as regular attacks against turrets.

First skill – Burst Strike

Dyrroth releases a burst strike in a designated direction. Each burst deals physical damage to enemies and slows them for a few seconds seconds. (The damage decays against the same target and decreases on minions.)

Abyss Enhanced: Burst Strike has a longer range, deals a bigger amount of damage, and its slowing effect is doubled.

  • He regens Rage for each enemy hit of this skill, so make sure to cover the entirety of the minion waves.
  • A regular Burst Strike hits thrice, while the enhanced version hits five times.

Second skill – Spectre Step

Dyrroth dashes in the designated direction. He will stop when he hits a target, dealing physical damage to enemies. When he uses this skill again, he will lock onto a target and release a Fatal Strike, dealing damage and reducing the target’s physical defense for a few seconds.

Abyss Enhanced: Fatal Strike will deal a bigger amount of damage, slow the target by an extra percentage, and reduce their physical defense for several seconds.

  • Max this skill first, as this is his initiation and escape ability.
  • Fatal Strike, the second phase of the skill, deals damage three times.
  • The skill goes into cooldown after a successful hit of Fatal Strike, or a few seconds after failing to cast it.
  • You cannot target minions or the summoned Lord with Fatal Strike.

Ultimate – Abysm Strike

Dyrroth quickly charges and releases a Fatal Strike, dealing huge physical damage equal to his base damage, plus a huge percentage of his extra physical attack, and a percentage of the enemies’ lost HP along the way. He also slows them for a moment.

  • You can extend the range or change the target direction of this ultimate by using Flicker.
  • The cast animation has a slight delay, so you need to predict the direction where your target is moving, or if using Flicker is necessary.
  • Usually, this is the finishing blow, but you can also use this to deal initial burst damage.

If you’re facing enemy heroes that like direct combat, such as Freya and Thamuz, opt for Vengeance. This can give you the edge you need to win the lane.

Meanwhile, for those playing as a jungler, Retribution is the obvious choice, as it allows you to clear creeps fast, and helps you secure the Turtle or Lord.

Choose Rupture in the first tier for additional adaptive penetration, and Weapon Master in the second tier for increased physical attack from equipment, emblem, talents, and skills.

As for your primary talent, pick Killing Spree. It restores a substantial amount of your HP, and provides you with extra movement speed upon killing an enemy hero, allowing you to sustain your assault in team fights.

Purchase items that strengthen physical penetration, such as Blade of the Heptaseas, Hunter Strike, and War Axe, to maximize the defense reduction effect of Spectre Step.

Get Dominance Ice for physical defense and lifesteal reduction against the opposing team, as you will be relied upon to target the backline, particularly the enemy marksman.

Buy Malefic Roar or Blade of Despair for physical damage then complete your build with a defensive item, such as Antique Cuirass or Athena’s Shield, depending on the opponent’s composition.

In the early game, close the gap against your opponent using Spectre Step, then hit them with Burst Strike and basic attacks. Make sure to have at least one Rage bar before going for an attack to utilize the enhanced version of Spectre Step.

When Abysm Strike becomes available, use it after hitting your target with Spectre Step and Burst Strike. Finish them off with basic attacks if they manage to survive the ultimate.

Remember, you can use Flicker to extend the range or change the target direction of Abysm Strike in case your target tries to flee. To do this, trigger Abysm Strike first then quickly cast Flicker in your intended direction.

You can also start your attack with Abysm Strike, then take down your target using Spectre Step, Burst Strike, and basic attacks. However, you will not be able to deal the extra damage from their lost HP.
