Mobile Legends Immediate Patch in advance server days after recent update - End of October 2022

To wrap up the month of October 2022, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang has been bombarding updates on both original server and their advance or test server. In only a difference of around 3 days each, the advance server was updated then original server had some hotfix and now, another advance server patch is here. The highlights of the latest advance server patch are the significant hero adjustments to Faramis, Yve, and Lapu-Lapu.


1. Faramis nerf

Several nerfs already happened but yet, Faramis is still very impactful that is almost on a broken level or unhealthy in terms of the influence it has in teamfights. With the following changes, the game designers/developers hope to change that while dialing back some previous nerfs.

[Skill 1] (↑)
Cooldown: 18s >> 15s

[Skill 2] (↑)
Initial Damage: 300-450 +108% Magic Power >> 330-480 +144% Magic Power

[Ultimate] (↓)
New Effect: Teammates will no longer enjoy the buffs granted after they leave the Nether Realm area.

The previous nerfs on his skill 1 and skill 2 are slightly reverted. These adjustments are considered as an overall nerf because of how significant the adjustment to his ultimate skill is. "Teammates will no longer enjoy the buffs granted after they leave the Nether Realm area."


2. Yve adjustments

They have yet to figure out how to make the optimal adjustments to Yve. In this update, they will now try to revert the buffs to her damage and choosing to instead buff her control abilities.

[Skill 1] (↓)
Extra Base Damage: 160-320 >> 145-295

[Skill 2] (↓)
Slow Effect: Starts at 35%, increasing by 5% every time up to 60% >> Starts at 30%, increasing by 10% up to 80%

[Ultimate] (↑)
Tap Damage: 360-600 >> 340-540
Immobilizing Time: 0.3s >> 0.8s
Slow Effect: 60% >> 80%

The skill 1 and skill 2 adjustments are similar reverted version of her previous buffs which was now toned down. The adjustment on her skill 2 is also interesting and it really might need testing on how effective that new mechanic on her slow effect will perform. Her ultimate skill is buffed overall as the crowd control effects are now more significant.


3. Lapu-Lapu buff

"A balanced boost to Lapu-Lapu's various performances to make him more competitive against other fighters" is what the patch note says. All of his active skills were buffed to accomplish that aim.

[Skill 1] (↑)
Physical Damage Bonus: 50% >> 65%

[Skill 2] (↑)
CD: 12-7s >> 10-8.5s

[Ultimate] (↑)
Defense Buff: 10-40 >> 30-60

His skill 1 now benefits more from bonus Physical Damage. His skill 2 has lower cooldown in early game but increased in late game. Lastly, his ultimate skill now provides more defense buff.

These adjustments may or may not be included in the November 2022 Original Server update. It is also important to take note that aside from the upcoming hero Joy, Revamped Hanabi is also in the test server. November 2022 is coming up so expect announcements from Moonton in the official ML: BB social media platforms about the upcoming global patch.
