Mobile Legends - Top 10 Best Heroes Based on Official Statistics for Patch 1.4.86

Guild of Guardians
With the release of Yu Zhong and other adjustments brought by Patch 1.4.86, let's look at the best heroes currently!

This list will be based from the official statistics found in the ML:BB Official Website. For better accuracy, the filter used for the best heroes is Ranked Game in Very High Elo for all server. You might probably be surprised which heroes have the highest win rate for this week. Check this post out and it will be explained why these heroes are in this list.

The order in this list will be in increasing win rate percentage.

1. Valir

Win Rate: 53.35%
Pick Rate: 2.93%

Valir is one of the most popular mage in very high elo. He is very annoying when in the hands of a good player but just a food if not played well. He is now less banned that is why he can be seen more frequently. He is currently an S+ Tier Mage. He is commonly played as a support. His ability to counter the initiation of tanks due to his knockback skill is one of his signature. His passive also makes him deal damage based on hp percentage which can melt tanks faster than using most mages. His ability to stun targets, poke them to death, or even to remove crowd control effects using his ultimate skill makes him really deserving to be known as one of the best heroes.

His win rate and pick rate both increased significantly in this new patch compared to the last patch.

2. Carmilla

Win Rate: 53.44%
Pick Rate: 0.13%

She is one of the best support heroes to use right now. She is tanky because of her passive. She has CC because of her second skill. She can last long in teamfights and give sustained damage and lifesteal because of her first skill. Her ultimate skill is also a game changer. She may not be a very popular pick in solo queue but she can definitely help in winning games as long as you have a trustworthy carry hero.

3. Claude

Win Rate: 53.67%
Pick Rate: 1.44%

Claude enters the list after being less banned. Even though his win rate lowered in the professional scene, he is still a very powerful hero in ranked games. He is strong with the funnel strategy since he can get his items faster. But if not farmed well, Claude won't be much of a problem since he can't deal much damage without enough farm. In the succeeding heroes, the better heroes than Claude in the current META will be shown.

4. Ling

Win Rate: 53.71%
Pick Rate: 1.29%

Ling also enters the list as he become stronger yet some players are still not using him thus also lesser times to be banned. He is quite a higher risk pick than Claude since Ling has more obvious and popular counters than Claude. But because Ling has now made stronger early game, his win rate rises which made him enter this top 10 list.

5. Esmeralda

Win Rate: 53.711%
Pick Rate: 1.57%

Another great hero enters the list! She has almost the same win rate as Ling but she is more frequently picked. Esmeralda is a very flexible pick since she can be the funnel hero or an offlane hero. Her being purple buff dependent has now been resolved by using the Mystery Shop Talent to quickly purchased Enchanted Talisman wherein this tactic is very viable. As an offlaner, she is hard to beat since she is tanky and at the same time, can deal decent damage. And as a carry hero, she is hard to shutdown also because of her tankiness unlike other funnel heroes that are squishy and can be killed in just one combo.

6. Masha

Win Rate: 54.51%
Pick Rate: 0.75%

After consecutive adjustments, Masha is also back in the list! Masha is known to be the best in getting objectives. She can kill turtle and lord fast even if solo. She can destroy turrets fast. She is also very good in 1v1 situations. Most players are teamfight-oriented that is why she is not popular. But as long as Masha is used by a good player that can adapt in many situations, there will always be a way to secure a victory just by securing objectives. Besides, objective wins games.

7. Hylos

Win Rate: 54.55%
Pick Rate: 2.28%

Hylos stays in the rankings! He has now higher win rate and pick rate due to the nerf to Atlas. He is also naturally tanky just like Atlas not in terms of hybrid defense but because of his passive that gives additional HP with every mana points he gained from items. This makes Dominance Ice and Twilight Armor very beneficial. A very efficient tank for this META. His invade and zoning potential is also a great threat for the enemy team. He shines in early game and can scare aware any othee heroes even against a powerful Grock and Lunox duo. As Natalia also shines, Hylos is being more picked to counter her. His ability to stun a locked target makes him more successful than other tanks which skills most likely miss when against skilled players.

8. Lolita

Win Rate: 55.06%
Pick Rate: 0.43%

She is the second tank and second support hero in this list. She is a tank/support that counters the Marksman META. Her second skill can deny the damage from any projectiles and long-ranged basic attacks. She is a popular counterpick against Granger, Karrie, Kimmy, and Chang'e. Thus, there is no doubt why she shines in the current META. She can even blocked the ultimate skill of Cecillion. Recently, her pick rate decreases along with her win rate. The rise of other tanks and supports might be a reason why Lolita became a situational pick again. Yet, she still stayed as the top 3 hero with the highest win rate.

9. Kimmy

Win Rate: 55.21%
Pick Rate: 1.11%

Even after the tournaments, Kimmy managed to stay in the rankings. Her carrying ability might be underestimated by others but she can actually do both pushing and dealing burst damage even with a magic items build! This also makes Kimmy a flexible hero to use. Even adjusting to a line-up is not hard for Kimmy since even with another marksman, she can be built and used as a mage to complement the team composition. Her ability to get other objectives like turtle and lord also helps a lot for the whole team thus giving a higher success chance to win as long as you know how to play her properly.

10. Kaja

Win Rate: 55.68%
Pick Rate: 0.89%

Kaja stays at the top spot! The suppressed effect of his ultimate skill now cannot be removed by purify or Diggie's ultimate. Immunity skills like Chou's skill 2 also now does not work thus players start to use him again and got a higher chance of winning. His lightning bomb now also deals more damage making his full combo very deadly! Once caught by his ultimate skill, already expect a kill!
