Best Emblem Set and Spells for Aulus in Mobile Legends
Aulus has decent damage output so you can use this Custom Assassin Emblem on him to amplify his basic attack damage. This will also help him to handle the early game situation. Agility will provide him movement speed which will amplify his own mobility, Invasion to increase his physical pen and Killing spree will restore his lost hp and movement speed after slaying an enemy hero. You can set up your emblem like this:
- Agility (+3)
- Invasion (+3)
- Killing Spree (+1)
One of the best spells to be used on Aulus is Flicker. You can use it to escape death, chase low HP enemies, or perform a perfect team fight. Or else you can use Petrify too. Petrify will deal magic damage to surrounding enemies and petrifies them for 0.8 seconds. You can use Execute too, to kill dot life enemies or else use Retribution if you are playing as a jungler. Do not stick into one battle spell, just change it according to the enemy team composition.
Best Builds for Aulus in Mobile Legends
You can try many builds on Aulus. All you have to do is just follow the enemy’s pick and then decide the role on the battlefield. Try to focus on the items that grant you Physical attack damage, Tenacity, and Physical Vamp. We will share 2 types of build, you can use it as per your need but never forgot to build your two core items e.g. War Axe and Brute Force Breastplate. We have set out the following template to try out with Aulus on the battlefield.
- Warrior Boots
- War Axe
- Blade of despair
- Brute Force Breastplate
- Berserker’s Fury
The main item war ax is exactly what you need to boost your passive and Breastplate will provide you extra movement speed and physical plus magical defense. Don’t build Bloodlust Axe cause the spell vamp is not so effective instead of that build Haas’s Claw to do Physical Lifesteal. You can also build Windtalker/Corrosion Scythe/Blade of Heptaseas to boost your attack speed; if your team has enough sustained heroes in your team go for the BOD. Lastly, wrap up yourself with Immortality to get an extra life.
Mobile Legends Aulus Gameplay Tips
Aulus is a bit squishy at the early phase, so try to play inside lane or else play as a jungler. You can play him as a Fighter or Initiator in Exp lane. After getting his core items he will easily dominate the battlefield. Try to play in 1-3-1 rotation. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Aulus guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game in the game. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero.
As a fighter, if you play Aulus; you have to go to the Exp lane and hold it as well as push it; until your carry gets the core items to get kills. Do not leave your lane open for enemy pushing. Prioritize War Axe as your first item as it boosts your passive, physical attack damage, and CD reduction at the same time. Kill small crabs to maintain the gold economy. If you are playing as hyper just follow any Assassin-Hyper guide to understand rotation. You can perform the following skill moves to have an advantage in the battle.
Basic Attack + Skill 2 + Skill 1
In the mid-phase help your carry to get the turtle buff and do a quick rotation to the mid or bottom lane with your team. Try to hide in the bush in order to gank the enemy damage dealer and slow his farm ratio. But do not forget to push lanes.
Pushing turrets gives pressure to enemies to focus on your lane more rather than your team’s carry. Make a sustained attack build so that he can initiate the team fight. And now build Brute Force Breastplate to engage small ganks. Keep in mind to follow the skill move to get the best results with Aulus.
Skill 2 + Basic Attack + Skill 1
At this phase, Aulus shines the most as it got sustaining build. Meanwhile, try to attack the enemy carry as much as possible. If you are playing as a fighter in your team then go for max 2 sustain build and if you are playing as a hyper in your team then go for max 1 sustain build (Breastplate).
Before ganking someone, try to max out your passive stacks, this will helps you to kill enemies easily. You can use your combos like this:
Skill 3 + Skill 2 + Basic Attack + Skill 1 + Basic Attack
Remember, Aulus is very effective against any Mage and mm who don’t have much CC and stuns, but he is not good against mobile heroes cause they can easily dodge his attacks. So use him efficiently in the battle to his strengths.
No doubt Aulus is a good fighter but he is not so effective in the early phase like other melee heroes, so instead of chasing enemies try to focus on your build and also remember if you hold skill 1 you can not perform any other combos. So before attacking always check bush by your skill 2.
Enemies can easily escape from your ultimate so don’t use it unnecessarily, wait for the perfect moment during a team fight; build your attack stacks and then do a surprise attack. You can rank up easily with Aulus if you understand his enhanced attack technique. The Mobile Legends guide here will help you out on how to maximize the most out of Aulus.
