Mobile Legends Patch Notes 1.8.56 Original Server Highlights - All significant hero adjustments

As the month of January 2024 ends, the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) game released a huge update to the game’s official server. The game developers/designers opened up the patch notes by giving a brief description on what the update contains overall. It was mentioned that they nerfed some popular heroes in Ranked Games and buffed certain heroes that were affected by the changes to War Axe and Brute Force Breastplate. Here are every significant hero adjustments in the January 2024 update Patch Notes 1.8.56 original server.


Buff to certain heroes that do not greatly benefit from War Axe and Brute Force Breastplate

[Skill 1] (↓)
Portion of Attack Effect inherited: 50% >> 40%

[Skill 2] (↑)
The skill now counts as Basic Attack and triggers the Attack Effect, but cannot Crit.


[Skill 2] (↑)
Greatly increased skill width to be identical to Skill 1.

[Ultimate] (↑)
Slightly increased skill width to be identical to Skill 1.

Arlott adjustment

[Skill 2] (~)
HP Regen: 5%-10% Total HP >> 90%-160% Total Physical Attack

These three heroes are the fighters that didn’t keep up with the power creep brought by the revamped War Axe and Brute Force Breastplate. Thus, the game decided to buff certain things on their active skills. Sun’s skill 2 now counts as basic attack which means it can now benefit more from items like Demon Hunter Sword and Corrosion Scythe. On the other hand, Paquito’s skills now all have identical skill width while Arlott’s skill 2 had a change in HP regen calculation.


Marksman heroes adjustments

Ixia buff
[Skill 1] (↑)
Cooldown: 8-4s >> 4s at all levels
Base Damage: 175-300 >> 75-300

Wanwan nerf
[Passive] (↓)
Slightly reduced jump distance.
Basic Attack Damage and Attack Effect Ratio: 110% >> 100%

Hanabi adjustments
[Passive] (↓)
Bounce Range: 3.5 >> 3
Removed the bounce damage on enemies hidden in the Bush.

[Skill 1] (↑)
Cooldown: 14-12s >> 15-10s

Ixia’s skill 1 is buffed in order for her to be able to spam this skill more. Nolan’s passive and ultimate skill are adjusted which resulted in an overall nerf. Wanwan’s passive is also nerfed with the reduced jump distance, basic attack damage and attack effect ratio. Lastly, Hanabi’s passive is nerfed but her skill 1 now has a lower cooldown in late game.


Lunox nerf
Lunox has been dominating the Jungle since the previous adjustments, so the game nerfed her a bit for balance. Besides, she's using her Ultimate too often because of the Cooldown Reduction.

[Skill 1 (Chaos)] (↓)
Percentage of Extra Damage to Creeps: 2.5-5% >> 1.5-3%

[Ultimate] (↓)
Cooldown: 25-15s >> 30-22s

Her ultimate skill is nerfed so players won’t be able to just mindlessly spam it and skill 1 is nerfed but only on the extra damage to creeps. She is the only mage hero that was significantly adjusted in this latest update (not counting Revamped Aurora and the other hero adjustments that were minor or not highlighted in the introduction of the Hero Adjustments section). This adjustment has been tested already in the game’s advanced server and it seems to have produced the result that the game intended.

These are the significant hero adjustments brought by the global implementation of Patch Notes 1.8.56 update. Another significant hero adjustments that isn't categorically listed above is Nolan's nerf. The details about that along with the information about 2023 Guess Coin Removal and other events can be seen in the in-game mail which is accessible to all players. Take note that some of the events and contents will be gradually implemented and not everything was applied outright last January 31, 2024.
