Don’t judge a book by its cover. In this case, don’t judge a hero by its mecha.
Surprising Mobile Legends: Bang Bang fans is newest hero, Edith, the Forsaken Warden.
An innocent looking blonde teenager with aquamarine blue eyes who controls a huge mecha guard called Phylax, she makes history as the game’s first ever tank and marksman hero combined.
According to Moonton’s hero spotlight, she specializes in control and burst, and has equally strong offensive power as a marksman, as well as durability as a tank.
Edith’s skills in Mobile Legends
Passive – Overload
Each time Edith casts a skill, she becomes overloaded for three seconds. In this duration, her basic attacks trigger Chain Lightning, which deals extra magic damage to up to four nearby enemies.
As such, it’s her bread and butter in the laning phase for it allows her to clear minion waves.
First skill – Earth Shatter
Earth Shatter is Edith’s main source of damage as a tank. Phylax jumps into the air, landing a blow that deals physical damage in front, knocking them up.
Second skill – Onward
Out of all her skills, Onward is your main engage tool. Using it charges Phylax forward, dealing physical damage to enemies along the way.
If Edith hits an enemy hero in her path, she will stop immediately and throw them over her shoulder, dealing extra physical damage to the target, stunning them briefly.
In the laning phase, use Onward to flip an enemy hero into an Earth Shatter combo, then follow up with Overload’s Chain Lightning empowered basic attacks.
Ultimate – Primal Wrath
Primal Wrath can be casted once Edith reaches max Wrath. She ejects herself from Phylax, gaining a shield. She also unlocks new non-ultimate skills, and can perform ranged basic attacks.
She accumulates Wrath — indicated by the white bar below her HP — based on how much damage she receives in mecha form.
Divine Retribution is an AoE skill that deals magic damage to enemies hit. It deals extra magic damage every 0.5 seconds to those who enter the area within the next 1.5 seconds.
Lightning Bolt is Edith’s key control skill in marksman form. A linear ability, she fires a bolt forward to deal magic damage to the first enemy hero hit, immobilizing them for one second.
