Harith’s skills in Mobile Legends

Passive – Key Insight

Harith gains insight from his Key. He gains a percentage fo hybrid lifesteal for each nearby enemy hero, stacking up to a certain percentage.

  • Hybrid lifesteal integrates normal lifesteal from basic attacks with spell vamp from skills. As a result, Key Insight significantly improves Harith’s endurance during team fights, especially when confronted with multiple enemy heroes.

First Skill – Synchro Fission

Harith creates a phantom of himself in a direction and releases Synchro Fission, dealing magic damage to enemies on the path. When the two energy waves collide, an explosion occurs, dealing greater magic damage to all enemies in the explosion area.

  • Synchro Fission is a high-damage, low-cooldown skill. Use this as frequently as possible.
  • You can maximize magic damage output by using the skill indicator so that the enemy is in the center of the casting area where the energy waves will collide.
  • Use this ability to poke enemies, and force them to fall back.

Second skill – Chrono Dash

Harith dashes towards the target direction. When he arrives, he steals magic power from nearby enemy heroes, generates a shield that absorbs damage, and enhances his next basic attack.

His enhanced basic attack deals magic damage, and slows enemies by a certain percentage. Hitting an enemy with the enhanced basic attack substantially reduces the cooldown of Chrono Dash.

  • Chrono Dash is your bread-and-butter ability. Use this to get into position for kills, or get out of sticky situations.
  • Remember to use your basic attacks after each activation to proc the enhanced basic attack effect and deal maximum damage.

Ultimate – Zaman Force

Harith uses his Key to summon the Zaman Force. When the multidimensional rift appears, the cooldown of Chrono Dash is greatly reduced. The rift initially slows enemy heroes by a large percentage, and will continuously slow them down at a lower percentage afterward.

If Harith comes into contact with the rift using Chrono Dash, he will absorb the energy within and reduce the cooldown of Synchro Fission and Chrono Dash.

  • Zaman Force makes you virtually untouchable during fights due to its cooldown reduction effects.
  • Activate this whenever a team fight breaks out, so you can take advantage of the slow effects on the enemy heroes.
  • Continually activate Synchro Fission and Chrono Dash inside the Zaman Force to deal maximum damage, and evade enemy damage.

Recommended battle spell

Your effectiveness in using the hero heavily relies on your ability to move around freely in fights. Crowd control abilities that can lock you down are your biggest threats, and this is when Purify can do wonders for you.

The spell can instantly remove CC effects and provide a brief period of immunity— just enough to allow you to freely utilize your abilities and continue dishing out damage.

Outside of Purify, you can also go for the Flicker battle spell for offensive and defensive utility.

Flicker can be used offensively with Harith’s ultimate, Zaman Force. By using Flicker, you can instantly position yourself in the middle of a team fight, slow enemies down with your ultimate, and then unleash your massive Magic Damage upon them.

If you find yourself in a tight spot, Flicker can also provide you with a quick escape mechanic. This is particularly useful against teams with heavy crowd control.

Recommended emblem

Select the Mage emblem to gain significant amounts of magic power, magic penetration, and cooldown reduction.

For your first standard talent, pick Inspire. The cooldown reduction allows you to do what your hero does best — move and kite.

This is especially beneficial in the early game where you likely do not have cooldown reduction items built yet.

As for your second standard talent, choose based on the enemy team’s composition and according to your playstyle.

If you want to ramp up your item progression for a dominant mid-game, choose Bargain Hunter. If you want more sustainable damage output going to the late game, you can opt for the Festival of Blood talent.

For your core talent, take Impure Rage. This allows you to inflict extra damage and restore a percentage of your mana when you deal damage with skills.

To maximize your hero’s kit, focus on building items that enhance your magical power and cooldown reduction.

Take Magic Shoes, then prioritize Starlium Scythe as your first major item. This elevates your ability to be more pesky in the lane early due to the mana regeneration and cooldown reduction stats. You also possess better kill potential thanks to the item’s passive, Crisis.

After that, continue amplifying your magic power by getting Feather of Heaven and Holy Crystal, then build Concentrated Energy for additional survivability.

Easy combos to learn

Focus on getting as much gold as possible in the early game to get your key items.

Whether you’re playing Harith in the gold lane or mid lane, you can use the combination of your Synchro Fission and Chrono Dash to clear the minion waves and poke enemy heroes.

You can be particularly effective in team fights using your ultimate which applies slow effects on enemies, creating kill opportunities for your team.

The best skill sequence you can do in this situation is by first poking the enemy using Synchro Fission, then activating your Zaman Force.

After this, you can repeatedly use Chrono Dash due to its reduced cooldown. Use your dash ability whenever available, and remember to weave in basic attacks after each activation.

Activate Synchro Fission as well when the skill cools down. This way, you’ll be able to output optimal damage.
