Valir’s skills in Mobile Legends

Passive – Ashing

Valir’s skills apply a stack of Ablaze to enemies hit, dealing magic damage equal to a percentage of their maximum HP per second for several seconds.

At three stacks, the fire detonates, dealing magic damage equal to a percentage of the target’s max HP and stunning them for a second.

  • To trigger the stun effect of Ashing on your intended opponent, manually target the skills for higher accuracy.
  • If you manage to hit your target with the first two skills, you will definitely stun and burn them.
  • You can only stun the same target once every seven seconds.

First skill – Burst Fireball

Valir launches a fireball that explodes upon hitting the first target, dealing magic damage and slowing them. The lingering flame on the ground will explode after a second, dealing magic damage.

He stores up a fireball every nine seconds, up to two total. Using this skill to hit a hero or kill an enemy will immediately restore a fireball.

  • Max out Burst Fireball first, as this is his primary damage spell.
  • Manually target this skill to have better accuracy, enabling you to quickly restore a charge and continuously use it.
  • Use this to scout enemies hiding in bushes from time to time. While it does not reveal them completely, you can determine that there’s someone hiding in a bush if the spell recharges right away.
  • Burst Fireball applies two stacks of Ablaze when the enemy gets damaged by the initial hit and the subsequent explosion, allowing you to stun them with your next skill.

Second skill – Searing Torrent

Valir unleashes a torrent of flames in the target direction, dealing magic damage to enemies and knocking them to the end of its path.

  • While this is mainly used to knock back approaching enemies, you can also use Searing Torrent to push them near your allies or turret.
  • This can interrupt most dash abilities, allowing you to escape from enemies with the mentioned type of mobility skill.
  • Similar to Burst Fireball, you can use this to scout enemies hiding in a bush by pushing them out of it and exposing their location.

Ultimate – Vengeance Flame

Valir removes all debuffs on him and conjures four Vengeance Flames that enhance his subsequent skills for nine seconds. Each of his skills consumes one Vengeance Flame to deal extra base damage.

Meanwhile, he gains extra movement speed that decays over several seconds.

Enhanced Burst Fireball: He increases the skill’s range, explosion damage, and area of effect.

Enhanced Searing Torrent: He generates a firewall at its edge that lasts for several seconds. If an enemy is hit by the firewall, they will be slowed and take magic damage every second.

  • When a team fight breaks out, use Vengeance to instantly remove a control effect, and run to a position where you can safely release your skills.
  • Take note that this cannot remove suppression. So, be careful when there are enemies with such effect, like Kaja and Franco who have it in their ultimates.
  • Before triggering this, make sure that your skills are not on cooldown.
  • Upon using this, your screen will zoom out, allowing you to see distant opponents, and target them with Burst Fireball.

Valir relies on mana to unleash his spells consistently. To address this, it is advisable to buy Demon Shoes, which restore mana upon scoring hero kills, assists, and minion kills.

Next, prioritize obtaining two core items — Ice Queen Wand and Glowing Wand. The former inflicts an additional slowing effect on targets, while the latter amplifies burn damage.
