Unlike many fighters who rely on Physical Damage, Silvanna leverages her Magic Power to devastate her enemies. This, combined with her potential for Magic Lifesteal, allows her to maintain her health while tearing enemies apart.

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

Silvanna’s skills in Mobile Legends

Passive – Knightess’ Resolve

Silvanna’s Basic Attacks deal Magic Damage. Her attacks apply a mark on enemy heroes for a few seconds on hit, each mark reducing their Physical & Magic Defense up to a certain number of stacks. She deals extra damage to enemy heroes with the maximum number of marks.

  • This passive ability is the crux of Silvanna’s power. The longer she fights, the more dangerous she becomes.
  • This also means that she scales very well in the late game because of the defense-reduction effects of this skill.

First skill – Cometic Lance

Silvanna thrusts her lance in the target direction, dashing toward the enemy to inflict Magic Damage and stun effects.

  • This skill is great for initiating fights because of the crowd control. It also doubles as a mobility skill with the dash.
  • Use this to close the gap against enemies who are trying to flee the battle. You can also activate this to disrupt enemy abilities, especially the ones with channeling or delay.

Second skill – Spiral Strangling

Silvanna thrusts her lance in the target direction and spins it a few times while gaining a shield. Each spin deals Magic damage and slightly pulls targets toward the center. Silvanna spins an additional time for every percentage of extra Attack Speed she possesses. The skill deals only a percentage of damage against Minions. Spiral Strangling counts as a Basic Attack but cannot critically strike.

  • This area-of-effect skill is fantastic for crowd control and dealing consistent damage.
  • Use this to poke enemy heroes in the lane or as a tool for wave clear.
  • Since this is your primary offensive tool in the early game, max this skill first.

Ultimate – Imperial Justice

Silvanna leaps to the target location and creates a Circle of Light upon landing, dealing Magic Damage to enemies in the area, slowing them by for a duration, and restraining the closest enemy hero to the area for a few seconds. Silvanna gains extra Attack Speed and Lifesteal when inside the Circle.

  • Activate this skill to isolate key targets during team fights to secure kills.
  • Use this skill only for key targets, primarily the squishy mobile heroes. Unless the enemy has a Purify battle spell, you’ll have full control of the enemy within your circle.
  • This skill cannot be interrupted, which means that you are a constant kill threat throughout the game.

Because of her survivability and damage capability, she can both be played as a laner or as a jungler.

Silvanna is best played in the EXP lane where she can dominate using her offensive abilities get experience to initiate fights.

While having good survivability, getting Vengeance makes her an even more potent frontline hero. The battle spell will not only allow her to resist more damage due to the damage reduction effects but also allow her to deflect it to the source as return damage.

She can also be effective as a jungler with the Retribution battle spell. This allows her to expedite her farming and contest for objective takes.

The Ice Retribution fits well with her skill kit. This type of blessing allows you to steal movement speed from your target depending on your level for several seconds, allowing you to land Cometic Lance and Spiral Strangling at a higher percentage.

Customize the Mage emblem by getting Rupture, Tenacity, and Lethal Ignition.

Rupture will give you a more potent early game with the extra adaptive penetration. With this talent, your Cometic Lance and Spiral Strangling will bring all sorts of problems to the opposing laner.

For your second-tier talent, Tenacity is a good option. When your HP is below a certain percentage, your physical and magic damage defense is increased. This allows you to have better uptime in the lane or team fights and allows you to take full advantage of the effects of your Knightess’ Resolve passive.

Lethal Ignition is a main talent that allows your passive to shine. When you deal damage greater than a percentage of an enemy hero’s max HP for a couple of times within a duration, you will scorch the target for additional adaptive damage.

This gives you another layer of damage that is most beneficial in the late game.

After boots, prioritize getting the Genius Wand to dominate the early game. The additional Magic Power and Magic Penetration will boost your kill potential and have squishy enemy heroes reeling when you are in the vicinity.

After that, take Feather of Heaven for a complete boost in stats. Outside of the additional Magic Power, it gives additional Attack Speed and Cooldown Reduction, but most importantly, Lifesteal which gives you better survivability as you transition to the mid game.

After those two items, build defensive items to prepare for the late game. Get Dominance Ice to resist Physical Damage better, then a choice between Athena’s Shield or Radiant Armor for Magic Defense.

For your final item, Winter Truncheon is the way to go. While Immortality is more commonly built for heroes in her class, Winter Truncheon provides more advantages for Silvanna. More than the HP boost and Physical Defense, the item’s active skill, Frozen, gives her time to reposition and reengage.

Another subtle advantage is the boost in her Magic Power, a stat that Immortality does not provide.
