Best Emblem set and Spells for Alucard in Mobile Legends
Custom Assassin Emblem is the best option for Alucard. Maximizing Movement Speed and Physical Pen with the Killing Spree talent for recovering hp and movement speed after getting a kill in a teamfight.
Alucard is not very good in sidelane / offlane. He shines in the jungle role. So it is recommended to use retribution to play the jungle role. In case you have to use him in sidelane, you can use flicker to chase enemies or escape. Vengeance is also good for Alucard because of his life-steal, he can sustain more in teamfight with the vengeance spell.
Best Builds for Alucard in Mobile Legends
One can try many builds on Alucard. All which one needs to do is to just follow the enemy’s pick and then decide the role on the battlefield. We have set out the following template to try out with Alucard on the battlefield.
- Warrior/Tough boots: Warrior boots for more physical defense and Tough boots when you are facing more magic damage heroes in enemy team. Alucard is very weak to CC skills, so it is better to use tough boots for him to get an extra cc reduction.
- War Exe: War exe is a new item which helps to stay longer in a teamfight and deal more damage at the same time. It has a unique passive which stacks up to 8 times which increases movement speed and physical pen. You can use this item if it suits with your playstyle. This is a great item for Alucard.
- Blade of Despair: Of the best item for any fighter, it works great with Alucard. Tts passive deals more damage to the enemies when HP is low. BOD increases his damage output a lot. It is one of the core items for Alucard.
- Endless Battle: Another core item for Alucard. This helps to deal more true damage to enemies and regening HP after clearing waves or killing small camps.
- Brute Force Breastplate: After casting a skill or basic attack it increases movement speed and physical/magical defense at the same time, it also stacks up. Alucard is a combination of both skill caster and basic attacker, so it is a very good defense item for him to sustain more.
- The Final Item: It actually depends on your enemy. If enemy has more magic heroes buy Athena shield or Radiant Armor. But if enemy has more physical damage heroes then you should buy Brute force breast plate or Twilight armor depending on the situation.
Mobile Legends Alucard Gameplay Tips
Alucard is one of the strongest early game heroes in Mobile Legends. You have to make use of his early advantage to dominate the match. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Alucard guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.
As you already know, Alucard is very strong in the early game. You can play aggressively right from the start. You can start killing the Purple buff or the Orange buff depending on the Lithowanderer’s spawn position. He can clear the jungle pretty fast. Killing the Lithowanderer will give you an extra advantage. You have to focus on your jungle. When your ultimate is available try to gank on the side lanes. Then move to the turtle area to secure the turtle with your tank/support and mage.
Getting one or two core items, Alucard can be a killing machine. He has an insane lifesteal, you have to gank enemies if there is any chance to maintain the domination, this is what makes him powerful. But you have to keep that in mind, Alucard is weak against CC skills.
You have to be very careful about your positioning, it will make you better than other Alucard players out there. Our mentioned build is capable of delivering high burst damage that can one-shot any squishy heroes in an instant. Always focus on killing the enemy core first or the mage or marksman from the backline.
Although he is very strong from early to mid-game, his sustain starts falling off as the match goes late. At this point, you need to have good map sense to make the best out of him, try not to get caught or ambushed, let your tank or support initiate first. You have to be patient before going in the team fight, wait until enemies use their CC skills, then you can kill the damage dealer easily.
Skill Combos for Alucard
To deal with maximum damage you need to make the best use of his passive skill, it will become handier as you play more and more with him. Alucard’s passive lets him dash around after using a skill. You can use this to reposition yourself or chase your targeted enemy.
Use basic attacks in between all of your skills. Don’t use your ultimate right away, use other skills before using the last phase of the ultimate. It will give you lifesteal and burst damage at the same time.
As discussed earlier Alucard is one of the strongest early game heroes in Mobile Legends. An excellent pick for rank games, Alucard is definitely a good pick for the current meta.
