Mobile Legends Patch Note 1.7.02 Advance Server Hero Adjustment Highlights - Badang and Edith Nerf

After the hotfix in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang in original server several days ago, their advance server are testing new adjustments that might be implemented in the global server soon. The highlights of the new patch in advance server are the nerfs to heroes Badang and Edith. Another overpowered hero, Natalia, will also be nerfed. Here are the details on the nerfs to these three heroes just exclusively based on the Patch Note 1.7.02 Advance Server.


1. Badang nerf

Badang's been dominating the early game since the last adjustment, so the developers are slashing some of his damage to balance him out.

[Skill 1] (↓)
Base Initial Damage: 255-430 >> 240-390

[Skill 2] (↑)
Shield Duration: 3s >> 5s

[Ultimate] (~)
Max Number of Attacks: 10 >> 9

Fixed an issue where the skill could be interrupted by control effects at the moment of release in some rare cases.

This is not an overall nerf since the skill 2 is buffed and his ultimate skill is adjusted with an issue fixed. His early game damage was just balanced out. These adjustments might also be due to its combination to the upcoming emblem system that is still exclusive to the test server.


2. Edith nerf

The developers are partially reverting the buffs from the previous patch.

[Skill 1] (↓)
Cooldown: 8-6s >> 9-7s

This nerf will offset the buff in the previous advance server patch. Edith was not adjusted in the latest original server hotfix thus still expect a better Edith in the global server next update. The original cooldown of her skill 1 is 10-8s before the previous patch thus it will still be a buff overall.


3. Natalia nerf

Natalia's been hunting a bit too well since the last update. The developers are reverting the previous buff to her ability to hunt down multiple targets while boosting her jungle clearing speed as compensation.

[Passive] (~)
Enhanced Basic Attack's Damage: 250 + 120% Physical Attack >> 250 + 105% Physical Attack

New Effect: Natalia's Skill 1 now always enjoys the damage bonus when attacking creeps.

[Ultimate] (↓)
Extra Physical Attack: 20-50 >> 15-35
Hero kills no longer reduce the charging time by 100%.
Charging Time Reduced Upon Creep Kills: 20% >> 40%

Natalia was also buffed in the previous patch (1.6.98 advance server) thus these adjustments are also just to balance her out. In this patch, her passive has a new effect. The upcoming emblem system might also affect these adjustments for Natalia.

Those three adjustments are the highlights of the newest advance server patch note in the test server. More details about this patch note are also available in-game for players that has access in advance server or in the official Reddit of ML: BB. Actual contents can be seen in-game and these changes are still tentative so some of these might not be implemented in the next global server update.
