Mobile Legends Additional Adjustments to Marksman Heroes in Advanced Server - End of Feb 2024 update

After about three weeks of stabilizing and observing the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) game’s advanced server, a new batch of hero adjustments was released via Patch Notes 1.8.62. This will probably be the last update for the month of February 2024 in advance server while the next update on the original server will be after the Games Of The Future tournament. Marksman heroes adjustment is one of the main highlights of this latest advanced server update as six heroes of that class received rebalancing changes. Here are all the adjustments made to marksman heroes in Patch 1.8.62 Adv Server.

1. Miya nerf

[Attributes] (↓)
Base Physical Attack: 120 >> 115
Physical Attack Growth: 12 >> 10

[Skill 2] (↑)
Base Damage: 180-330 >> 270-420 (Applied in the last Patch)


Most heroes in this patch received a physical attack growth adjustment. For Miya, it is a nerf along with her base physical attack stat. The base damage of her skill 2 was increased though in order to balance her out and she will still have decent damage in early game. The damage scaling of her skill 2 remains the same but the base damage was increased by 90 points.

2. Layla buff

[Attributes] (↑)
Physical Attack Growth: 10 >> 12


Layla is on the other end of the spectrum as she was buffed in this update. If Miya’s physical attack growth was nerfed from 12 to 10, the opposite happened to Layla as her physical attack growth has been increased from 10 to 12. Miya has many utilities with her skills while Layla has been known for her pure damage output so this adjustment seems fair to give both of this beginner-friendly heroes a chance to shine even in competitive scene.

3. Irithel nerf

[Attributes] (↓)
Base Physical Attack: 130 >> 125
Physical Attack Growth: 10 >> 8.5


Ever since her previous buff, Irithel has been a mainstay in the gold lane metagame despite not really being as very popular as when she was buffed. In spite of her usage rate, the game still deemed her damage output as overwhelming all throughout the game so her base attributes are nerfed. Her Physical Attack Growth is now even lower than Miya with just 8.5 while her base physical attack stat is reduced to 125.

4. Clint nerf

[Attributes] (↓)
Base Physical Attack: 127 >> 120
Physical Attack Growth: 13.5 >> 14


Clint is another hero that reigned over the metagame along with Irithel for some time. Clint is more known to be a great early game hero because of his high damage output potential from his skills. In this update, his base physical attack is nerfed to balance out his early game damage but his physical attack growth is increased so that his late game damage remains the same.

5. Granger nerf

[Attributes] (↓)
Base Physical Attack: 120 >> 112


For Granger, only his base physical attack stat is reduced. Before, he had the same base physical attack stat with Miya but now, he has lower base physical attack stat. Granger is also more known for his skills damage output so this is a nice adjustment to balance his early game potential and be just on par with the other marksman heroes.

6. Bruno buff

[Attributes] (↑)
Base Physical Attack: 140 >> 145

.
Lastly, Bruno is buffed. His base physical attack is increased to 145 as he really relies more from this stat than any other heroes. He can go for an attack speed build but he won’t be as fast as Miya’s attack speed. Thus, if his base physical attack was just 140, other heroes like Lesley could really just outshined him.

These are all the marksman heroes adjustments in this latest test server update. Along with this update, the game also removed the 10% base Attack Speed reduction for all heroes that was used in conjunction with the control optimization in the previous patch. These adjustments look complicated and thus there may be another test server update to readjust these in preparation of implementing globally in-game.
