Skill Analysis

Barats is a hero with the common four skill sets of one passive and three actives. In this Barats guide, let’s see what are his abilities in Mobile Legends, and when you can use which skill to get the best out of him.

Passive – I Am Big (Buff)


This is the important thing for Barats, whenever his skill hits a target, he will gain a passive stack if it hits multiple targets then he will also get multiple stacks. Each of his stacks helps him to grow (Big Boy) and his physical and magical defense will increase by 5 pts. This passive can reach up to 25 stacks and it lasts for 12 seconds. hitting targets with skills will reset the time. Each of his stacks also grants him 3% resilience. At max stacks, he will have 75% resilience, this resilience will make a 2 seconds stun (any CC) last for only 0.5 sec.

When Barats passive reaches 16 stacks, his basic attack will deal high damage and slows down the enemy for 0.2 sec. Remember if you were unable to hit enemies in the past 12 seconds you will return to your original state.

Skill 1 – So-Called Teamwork (AoE)

CD- 6/5.7/5.4/5.1/4.8/4.5

skill 1

This skill can damage to enemies in a fan-shaped area, throws ignited oil while dealing 120 / 160 / 200 / 240 / 280 / 320 amount of physical damage. After a while, it deals with damage again. This skill can slow down the enemies for 1second by 30%. The skill1 range will increase at 6,11,16,21 stacks.

Skill 2 – Missile Expert (CC)

CD- 11/10.4/9.8/9.2/8.6/8

skill 2

He launches 2 backfired missiles to deal 200 / 230 / 260 / 290 / 320 / 350 amount of physical damage. After casting this skill, it will push enemies in the path after a short delay. You can shorten the length of the skill and the trick part- using this skill against a wall will stun the targets.

Skill 3 – Detona’s Welcome (CC,AoE)

CD- 42/36/30

skill 3

Barats will devour a target after 1 sec he will spit out the target in a designated direction and deals 120 / 160 / 200 damage. You can not move while using this skill, but you can use your movement speed wheel to choose the spit direction. Aiming this skill against a wall or on other enemies will stun them for 1sec and deals an additional 150 / 175 / 200 / 225 / 250 physical damage. When he uses this skill he will be immune to CC(stun, knock up, etc)effects.

The problem is that he needs 1.5 seconds to complete his ultimate so if the enemy leaves the ulti range before he devours, this skill will be canceled. When his stacks reach 6,11,16,21 the damage of this skill will be increased by 25%. After unlocking the skill 3, he will get 5 stacks immediately when he respawns. At level 2 ultimate he will get 10 stacks and at level 3 ulti he will get 15 stacks respectively, whenever he respawns.

Skill-up Method for Barats

Max out skill 1 first followed by skill 2 and Ultimate whenever available.

Always keep an eye on this timer, use the skill on any targets(including creeps)before this timer ends. When you are roaming spam skill 1 or skill 2 on nearby monsters and you are good to go.If you want to gather stacks faster then clear minions wave or take blue buff.

First, you can aim towards the target with Skill 3, then just pre aim Skill 1 to deal damage and then some basic attacks. After pressing Skill 2 to bring the enemy back to Barats. Or if you are near to your turret, you can put the enemies under the turret (while using Flicker).

Skill 3+Skill 1+Basic Attack+Skill 2

Mid/Late Game

When you use your ultimate make sure that the enemy has already used their escape skill. Barats’ main damage source is from his basic attacks so do not retreat when your skills are down in a team fight. Try to help your ADR and never leave the front line. You are enough tanky when you picked your core items and side by side in this phase you have a decent amount of physical damage too, so try to play a little bit aggressive.
