Mobile Legends Phylax Leaked! First-ever Tank/Marksman Hero

A new hero named Phylax has been introduced in the advanced server of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.


Phylax is the first-ever tank/marksman hybrid hero of the game and is only playable in the advanced server. The character model of Phylax resembles the mecha robot which is commonly seen in Japanese anime. Phylax gameplay is close combat and knocking up enemies.

Regardless of Phylax being a melee tank, the new hero can change abilities to ranged attacks once its ultimate skill is activated.


Here is a quick look of the abilities of Phylax as seen in the advanced server:

1. Passive: Overload After each skill cast, Phylax becomes overloaded and allows its basic attacks to trigger a chain of electricity that will connect to nearby enemies and damage them.

2. Phylax’s Wrath: Melee basic attacks turn into ranged basic attacks while also triggering a chain of electricity that will connect to nearby enemies and damage them.

3. Skill 1: Earth Shatter Phylax jumps and then deals physical damage and knocks up enemies upon landing. Phylax’s Wrath: Brings down divine retribution to a designated area dealing magic damage to enemies hit and leaving a tremor in the area for a few seconds that continuously damages enemies within its range.

4. Skill 2: Onward Charges into a designated location and deals damage to enemies in its path. If Phylax hits an enemy while charging, it will stop immediately and hit enemies in a small area to deal more damage.

5. Phylax’s Wrath: Throws a lightning bolt in a designated location dealing magic damage to the first enemy hit and immobilizes them.
Ultimate: Phylax’s Wrath Taking damage from enemy attacks will stack energy. When the energy stored is released, Phylax gains flight and switches to ranged basic attacks. It also gains the following bonuses:
  • Gain bonus attack speed based on energy accumulated
  • Gain bonus magic lifesteal based on energy accumulated
  • Converts extra Defense attributes into Magic Power
Phylax is still a work in progress in the advanced server. There will be a lot of changes that will be made before Moonton transfers the new hero to the regular server. But as always, let’s thank our data miners (Ace Unyill) for this new information that we have obtained.

Phylax can now correctly convert its attributes during its Ultimate, at a higher ratio, even, so we're cutting down on its gains from Magic Power.

  • Chain Lightning's Magic Power Bonus: 75% → 30%
  • Damage to minions increased to 150%.
Skill 1 (↓): Earth Shatter

Phylax jumps up, and then deals Physical Damage to enemies in front after a short delay. Enemies hit will also be knocked airborne.

  • Damage to minions increased to 120%.
Skill 2 (↓): Onward

Phylax charges in a designated direction, dealing damage to enemies along the way. If Phylax hits an enemy hero during this process, it'll stop immediately and throw them over its shoulder.
  • Shield removed.
Ultimate (↑): Phylax's Wrath

Passive: Phylax accumulates energy each time it takes damage. Active: Phylax drains all the energy and takes flight, after which it can perform ranged Basic Attacks and gains a new set of skills. When in fight, Phylax will gain extra Attack speed and Magic Lifesteal according to the energy it accumulated and convert its extra Defense into Magic Power.
