Bearing the guilt from the tragedy that took her sister away, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang fighter Freya made a vow to protect the Northern Vale at all costs and bring glory to her name.

The Valkyrie shines in melee combat where she can showcase her impressive offensive arsenal and durability. Her skill kit allows her to enter a powerful state where she gains both offensive and defensive stats to woman up against any foe.

However, mastering Freya requires a good understanding of her skills and knowing how to leverage these strengths in different game scenarios.

In this ONE Esports guide, we will dive deeper into her abilities, strategies, and the best build to maximize her potential.

Freya’s skills in Mobile Legends

Passive – Power of Einherjar

After casting a skill, Freya gains substantial Attack Speed for her next Basic Attacks (this effect can stack up to a certain number of times). Freya gains a stack of Sacred Orb on each Basic Attack and can spend Sacred Orb stacks to cast Spirit Combo consecutively.

  • This skill is vital for building up Freya’s power. The key is to keep attacking enemies to stack your orbs and unleash her enhanced Basic Attack.
  • It allows her to dominate the game early since only few heroes can trade with her in one versus one scenarios.

First skill – Leap of Faith

Freya jumps to the target location, dealing Physical Damage to enemies hit and pulling them towards her.

  • This ability is great for initiating fights or ambushing enemies.
  • Maximize this skill by targeting squishy or high-damage heroes to disrupt their positioning.

Second skill – Spirit Combo

Freya strikes in the target direction, gaining a shield while dealing Physical Damage to enemies hit and slowing them for a duration. Freya can cast this skill again within a few seconds at the cost of stacks of Sacred Orb. On the third cast, Freya leaps into the air and smashes the area below, dealing Physical Damage to enemies within range and knocking them airborne for a short duration.

  • This is your primary damage ability so max this skill first. Take advantage of the shield and boost in Physical Damage to bully enemies when in the lane, or clear waves fast when playing as a jungler.
  • Sneak some Basic Attacks in between activations to continue gaining Sacred Orb stacks. That way, you can continue activating this ability.
  • Use this skill in combination with Leap of Faith to control enemies and deal significant damage.

Ultimate – Valkyrie Descent

Freya gains several stacks of Sacred Orb and enters the Valkyrie state, gaining a shield and Physical Attack. Meanwhile, her Basic Attacks become ranged and deal splash damage. The Valkyrie state lasts for a couple of seconds.

  • With this activated, Freya turns into a machine capable of obliterating even durable tanks.
  • The shield allows her to be on the frontlines, and the enhanced attacks make her a threat to any enemy.
  • Activate this skill when you’re about to engage in a team fight or initiate ambushes. You can also use it defensively when you’re low on health and need to escape.

When playing as a jungler, Retribution is the obvious choice. It provides a dual purpose. Firstly, it inflicts damage against jungle monsters, accelerating your farming and allowing you to level up faster. Secondly, it allows you inflict debuffs onto enemy heroes.

How to know the best type of Retribution for you in Mobile Legends

Specifically, the Ice Retribution blessing works well with the fighter. This allows you to steal movement speed from your target depending on your level for several seconds, making you agile while slowing them down.

If you’re playing as a side laner, Inspire is the best battle spell for your hero. Choosing this spell is all about enhancing Freya’s offensive prowess, making her even more lethal during team fights.

This spell boosts your attack speed, allowing you to land more hits within a shorter period. This works exceptionally well with her passive skill, Power of Einherjar, which grants her a Sacred Orb for each attack landed.

With Inspire, you can stack orbs faster, enter her powerful Valkyrie state sooner, and unleash devastating damage against her enemies.

Customize the Assassin emblem and take Thrill, Weapons Master, and Quantum Charge.

Thrill will provide a boost in Physical Attack that will allow you to farm faster and dominate the early game more easily.

You will need as much Physical Damage as you can get to improve your kill potential as you transition to the mid-game. This is why Weapons Master is a good option, as the Attack Damage bonus you get from items will ensure that you will never lack firepower.

For your main talent, Quantum Charge is the best choice. Freya is a hero who is dependent on her Basic Attacks to deal damage. With this talent, dealing damage with Basic Attacks will increase your movement speed for a duration and will restore HP.

With the added mobility, you can close the gap faster against enemies, not to mention the boost in survivability with the HP regeneration effects.

Freya is a dominant early-game hero because of her skill kit. Double down on this by acquiring Blade of Despair as her first core item. By acquiring this equipment, you will have insane Attack Damage that will help you clear camps faster and eliminate targets easily.

After that, purchase Endless Battle. This item improves not only your Physical Attack, but it also gives additional HP, Cooldown Reduction, Movement Speed, and Hybrid Lifesteal. The item also has a passive called Divine Justice which will allow you to deal True Damage to enemies.

Continue building on your kill potential by acquiring Berserker’s Fury and Malefic Roar. With these items, you can deal significant damage even if the enemy heroes have defensive items built.

For your final item, you can go two ways. You can build Hunter’s Strike when you are leading the game, or Immortality if you want insurance in the late game.

The best build for Freya in Mobile Legends

  • Tough Boots
  • Blade of Despair
  • Endless Battle
  • Berserker’s Fury
  • Malefic Roar
  • Hunter Strike

Tips and easy combos to learn

Ideal for those who enjoy a strong and tanky playstyle, Freya’s aggressive early game and effective crowd control make her a force to be reckoned with. While she excels in durability and offensive power, she can be susceptible to crowd control and requires good positioning to maximize her potential.

Freya shines in the early game. Take advantage of her insane damage to dominate lanes and pressure opponents from the get-go. But first, focus on farming and gaining experience as quickly as possible to reach level four, where you essentially become an assassin.

In the mid-game and late-game, continue roaming and applying pressure across the map. Use Leap of Faith to initiate fights, then activate Spirit Combo with Basic Attacks to secure kills. Activate your Valkyrie Descent to gain a shield and increase your survivability in skirmishes.
