Nana’s skills in Mobile Legends

Passive – Molina’s Gift

Nana transforms upon taking fatal damage, removing all debuffs on her, becoming untargetable and immune to all damage, and gaining extra movement speed for a few seconds.

  • She can only activate Molina’s Gift every two and a half minutes, so be careful in engaging in fights.
  • She recovers a percentage of her HP at the end of the skill’s duration.
  • A golden ring appears below her when the skill is available.

First skill – Magic Boomerang

Nana hurls her magical boomerang in the target direction, dealing magic damage to enemies hit on its way and back.

  • The damage of Magic Boomerang is reduced up to a certain percentage for each extra enemy hit.
  • Get this skill first and use it every so often in the laning stage, for this is her farming and poking tool.
  • You can move sideways to change the direction of the boomerang on its way back. This allows you to hit more enemies while maneuvering to a safe position.

Second skill – Molina Smooch

Nana sends Molina to the target location, who will then seek and chase the nearest enemy hero in the area, and transform the first enemy hero it collides with for a few seconds. The transformed enemy will also take magic damage, and have its movement speed and magic defense reduced for the duration.

  • Molina will remain stationary for up to several seconds if there are no enemy heroes in the area.
  • Molina can chase an enemy for a few seconds before disappearing.
  • This is the opening skill in her combo, so make sure you hit the right target first before using the other abilities.
  • Place this in a bush to scout for enemies, preventing gank attempts.
  • You can also use Molina Smooch to zone out enemies in sieging or defending turrets.

Ultimate – Molina Blitz

Nana summons Molina to attack the designated area three times. Each attack deals magic damage to enemies and slows them.

  • If Molina Blitz hits a single enemy continuously, he will be stunned.
  • This skill has a slight delay in cast animation, so ensure that your target is hit by Molina Smooch or any control ability first.
  • Try to predict where the enemy will escape, and position your ultimate there, so they will be hit twice and get stunned.
  • You can also use this to clear huge minion waves.

Recommended battle spell

Flameshot is the best battle spell to equip as you can use it to finish off enemies if they survive your combo.

Moreover, you can knock them back when they try to chase you, or force them to get hit by Molina Blitz twice.

If you want to play safe, choose Flicker. Use it to get out of dangerous positions, as Nana doesn’t have a mobility spell.

Recommended emblem

Choose Mage emblem to strengthen your magical burst, for it provides substantial magic power and magic penetration, along with cooldown reduction.

Next, select Inspire in the first tier for additional cooldown reduction, and Bargain Hunter in the second tier for reduced equipment cost.

Easy combos to learn

In the laning stage, put Molina Smooch near the minion wave to zone out your opponent. If they get transformed, poke them with Magic Boomerang.

For the full combo, wait for an enemy to get transformed by Molina Smooch. Cast Molina Blitz then follow it up with Magic Boomerang.

If you have Flameshot and your target manages to survive, use it to eliminate them.

As much as possible, use the combo on squishy heroes, such as the mage or marksman of the opposing team.
