Best Emblem Set and Spells for Belerick in Mobile Legends
Belerick can be played both as an offlaner and a roamer. Belerick is a pretty good roamer. Although he struggles in the early game, with the proper build he absolutely dominates in the late game.
Roamer Emblem Setup
This is the ideal emblem setup when playing Belerick as a roamer. Take Vitality in Tier 1 which increases max vitality by 65/130/200 HP. Take Inspire in Tier 2 which reduces skill cooldown by 2.50/5.00/8.00.
Finally, at the final tier take Tenacity talent which increases Physical and magical resistance by 35 points when HP is below 40%.
On use petrifies nearby enemies for 0.8 seconds, dealing 115 (+15 × Hero Level) Magic Damage. Petrify adds another CC to Belerick. You can CC chain with Petrify and Wrath of Dryad (Ultimate) to disable your enemy team for almost 3 seconds which can be followed up by your team easily.
After using, in the next 3 seconds, each time the hero takes damage deals 50 + 25% of the damage taken as Magic Damage to the enemy. Gains 35% Damage Reduction during the period. This works well with Belerick when initiating a teamfight and tanking for your squishy teammates.
Belerick can also be used to play as an offlaner in the XP lane. His early game is a little weak and he should be used to poke the enemies and leave his lane only when required for teamfights. However, after a few items, he can dominate his lane.
Offlaner Emblem Setup
This is the ideal emblem setup when playing Belerick as an Offlaner. Take Vitality in Tier 1 which increases max vitality by 65/130/200 HP. Take Inspire in Tier 2 which reduces skill cooldown by 2.50/5.00/8.00.
Finally, at Tier 3 take Concussive Blast talent which deals 125+(+7%HP) Magic Damage as AoE, 1s after a basic attack. This has an internal cooldown of 15 secs.
Flicker is a great blink skill that comes in handy when escaping dire situations or chasing fleeing enemies. This spell works great for Belerick when playing him as an offlaner. Flicker added with his Second skill adds decent mobility to his kit.

When playing Belerick as a Roamer buy Conceal blessed Tough or Warrior boots depending upon your enemies. Conceal will be unlocked after earning 600 gold from the roaming equipment. Conceal active skill conceals nearby allied heroes and increases their movement speed by 30%-75% for 5s or until taking damage. This works well when ganking enemies or retreating as well.

Eliminating enemy heroes raises the regeneration rate by 0.4%, while assists raise the rate by 0.2% (includes eliminations and Assists prior to purchase), up to 3.5%. This effect wears off after 5s of the hero taking damage. This item is an immense help to roamers.

Mobile Legends Belerick Gameplay Tips
As discussed earlier, Belerick specializes in crowd control and regeneration. Our Mobile Legends Belerick guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero.
Belerick struggles in the early game as he needs items, so he truly starts to shine in the mid and late game. So, in the early game try to poke and harass as much as possible and avoid team fights. While roaming as well keep providing vision but don’t engage in futile fights unnecessarily.
Once you have built your first defense item you can start engaging in fights, however still avoid taking 1v1s head-on and only engage if you have teammates to follow up. Use your Skill 2 to get into a fight or initiate one followed up by your Skill 1 which taunts the enemies into attacking you. Follow this up with your Ultimate which immobilizes the enemies for 2 seconds. This is the ideal way you should use your skills.
With two or three core items built, Belerick can be good in teamfights however only if you have teammates to follow up after you. Use your Skill 2 wisely to gank, chase or retreat. The movement speed Skill 2 provides helps Belerick to rotate faster from one lane to another. Belerick’s Ultimate is best used in teamfights along with his Skill 1 which taunts enemies is ideal for initiating teamfights and focusing on opponent core heroes.
This is when Belerick truly outshines, with most of his core items built he can take the brunt of the enemy team and safely sustain through the fight.
Provide vision, initiate teamfights where teammates can follow up, and most importantly try to protect your team’s core damage dealers safe.

Belerick is one of the best tanks that is very useful in teamfights because of his ability to provide Immobilize effects to nearby enemies. That way you and your teammates can finish off enemies easily. However, playing Belerick requires teamwork and good coordination. Hence, to play solo, Belerick is not the best choice because the other teammates tend to play independently in their respective lanes without regard to the team, except when a teamfight occurs.
