Gatotkaca skills in Mobile Legends

Passive – Steel Bones

He gains rage when taking damage. Upon reaching a certain amount of rage, his next basic attack becomes enhanced and will consume all rage to deal extra damage.

  • His passive also grants him physical defense equal to a percentage of his lost HP, making him harder to kill in team fights as his health diminishes. Utilize this advantage by unleashing your skills when your health falls below a certain threshold.
  • The enhanced damage scales with magic damage, making magic damage items viable if your team already has a tank. Otherwise, it’s okay to build him with purely defensive items.
  • The indicator below his HP turns red when his basic attack is enhanced. Stick close to enemy carries to prevent their escape from the enhanced attacks.

First skill – Blast Iron First

He slams the ground, creating a shattered zone in the target direction while dealing damage to enemies within, Enemies in the shattered zone will take continuous damage and be slowed.

  • This skill is important during the laning phase, particularly for clearing minion waves or cutting lanes.
  • When cutting lanes, gather the wave around you and utilize Blast Iron Fist to inflict sustained damage. Allow the minions to strike you, triggering your Steel Bones passive. This passive can then be employed to counter any attempts by the enemy laner to contest your position.
  • This skill is also helpful when slowing down enemy heroes trying to escape. This has a faster casting time compared to Unbreakable, which needs to be channeled.

Second skill – Unbreakable

Gatotkaca begins channeling, then dashes in the target direction, taunting enemies along the way for a few seconds.

  • The sprint distance of this skill is determined by its channeling duration. For maximum distance, it’s advisable to fully channel the skill.
  • Additionally, Gatotkaca can utilize this skill as a potent escape tool, capable of leaping over thin walls. To execute a swift wall jump, simply press the button instead of channeling it, as this provides sufficient momentum to clear obstacles.
  • This skill proves particularly effective against heroes reliant on basic attacks, owing to its taunting effect. Enhance its utility by incorporating Blade Armor into your build, allowing you to reflect a portion of the damage inflicted upon you.
  • Keep an eye on the recharge bar displayed in the middle of the screen, indicating the progress of this skill’s cooldown. Upon depletion of the red bar, the skill will be canceled, refunding 50% of its cooldown duration.

Ultimate – Avatar of the Guardian

He jumps to the target location, dealing damage to nearby enemies and knocking them airborne.

  • Enemies positioned within the center of the skill’s radius will be lifted into the air, while those on the periphery will be drawn closer to Gatotkaca.
  • This skill synergizes exceptionally well with other crowd control abilities that draw enemies toward the center, such as Tigreal’s and Atlas’s skills. By coordinating with these heroes, you can ensure that all enemies are gathered in the center, maximizing the effectiveness of Gatotkaca’s airborne knock-up effect.
  • Additionally, this skill serves as an excellent tool for scouting the map, as it enhances Gatotkaca’s vision while aiming. However, it’s important to note that it doesn’t reveal units in the fog of war. Nevertheless, this increased sight radius facilitates precise skill targeting even at considerable distances.
  • Furthermore, Gatotkaca can employ this skill to escape from losing team fights. Thanks to its control immunity and Gatotkaca’s untargetable status during the descending animation, he can effectively evade enemy attacks and disengage from unfavorable team fights
