Carmilla is a hero who has five abilities which are two passives and three actives. In this Lesley guide, let’s see what are her abilities in Mobile Legends, and when they can use which skill to get the best out of her.
Passive – Vampire Pact (Buff, Debuff)
Carmilla steals 7-11 Physical and Magic Defense (scales with level) from enemy heroes while dealing damage to them. Each target’s defence can be stolen only once in 5 seconds. The stolen Physical and Magic Defense can be stacked up to 5 times. It lasts for 5 seconds.
Skill 1 – Crimson Flower (Damage, Heal)
Carmilla summons 2 Crimson Flowers circling around herself for 5 seconds.
When Crimson Flowers hit an enemy, they increase spinning speed, deal 100–200 (+50% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to the target and slow it by 10% for 0.8 seconds (slow effect stacks up to 50%).
Each time the Crimson Flowers deal damage to enemies, Carmilla will restore 75–150 (+35% Total Magic Power) HP (only heals 30% of this amount on minion hit).
Skill 2 – Bloodbath (Speed UP, CC)
Carmilla accumulates Bloodbath Energy, greatly increasing her Movement Speed by 70% (decreases rapidly in 4.5 seconds).
Use Again: Carmilla casts Bloodbath Energy to a designated enemy (can’t target the minion), dealing 150–300 (+120% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage and stunning the enemy for 0.6 seconds.
The damage and the stunning duration scale with the Bloodbath Energy accumulation, capped at 100%.
Skill 3 – Curse of Blood (CC)
Carmilla casts Curse of Blood at a designated enemy hero. The Curse will spread out from the enemy hit to nearby enemy heroes, dealing 275–525 (+160% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage and slowing them by 80% for 5 seconds. (The slow effect will decay rapidly to 20% in 2 seconds.)
The curse can be inflicted on up to 3 targets at the same time. As long as one target with the Curse of Blood is damaged or controlled, the other influenced targets will also receive damage and control effects. (Damage decreases to 70%, and control duration decreases to 70%.)
Ultimate – Vermeil Shadow
Cecilion Cecilion summons Carmilla to become a Vermil [sic] Shadow to possess him, providing a 200 (+20 × Hero Level) shield.
Use Again: Carmilla charges toward a designated location, gaining an equal shield, dealing 200 (+20 × Hero Level) Magic Damage to enemies within the area of effect. and slowing them by 30% for 1 second. Meanwhile, she resets the cooldowns of her Crimson Flower Crimson Flower and Bloodbath Bloodbath.
Skill-up Method for Carmilla
Unlock her First skill first as it can give her an early advantage, then unlock her Second skill. Upgrade her Ultimate whenever available and prioritize levelling up her First skill first.
Best Emblem Set and Spells for Carmilla in Mobile Legends
Carmilla can be listed as one of the best supports in Mobile Legends, because of her crowd control and ability to deal damage. To make Camila’s gameplay more effective in rotation, players are expected to use the Custom Tank Emblem for HP, Hybrid Defense (physical and magical), and HP Regen. Alongside the Custom Tank Emblem whichever Talents best suits such player’s gameplay. However, we’ve brought you some of the best Emblem/Talent Set-up that is advisable to be used for Carmilla.
The Custom Tank Emblem ever since its Revamp provides players with access to 3 different talents. Hence, for Carmilla, the following setup is expected for players:
- In the First-tier Talent, we choose Vitality as it provides an extra 255 Max HP. It helps Carmilla to sustain more in the early game.
- In the Second-tier Talent, we choose Tenacity. This talent increases defence at low hp. When HP goes below 50% physical & magical defense is increased by 15.
- In the Third-tier Talent, players can choose Concussive Blast for more sustain with a little bit of magic damage to nearby enemies.
Vengeance is one of the best spells for Carmilla, as it helps her to play more aggressively and take more damage from the enemies. Flicker is also good for Carmilla.
Best Builds for Carmilla in Mobile Legends
Carmilla is one of the best supports for crowd control and dealing damage. She can dive into enemies easily and sustain a lot while dealing damage. As she is a Support hero, we would suggest making your build according to the situation, but we have created a template in our guide to try out Carmilla on the Mobile Legends Battlefield.
Players can start building the Tough Boots with Encourage Roam. If the enemy has more physical damage you can go for the Warrior Boots. For the second item, they can get Dominance Ice, it will be good to reduce the enemy’s life-steal, health regen & attack speed. For the third item, they can go for items like Athena Shield/Radiant Armor/Oracle, if the enemy has more magic damage or you can go with Antique Cuirass/Brute Force/Blade Armor if the enemy has more physical damage (this items depends on the situation).
For the fourth item, you can have the Gaurdian helmet for HP regen. For the fifth item, you have the physical Defense item Antique Cuirass/Brute Force/Blade Armor for more physical defence or you can have Athena Shield/Radiant Armor/Oracle for more magical defence. These items could depend on the situation. For the last item, you can build Immortality to have a second chance of surviving.
Mobile Legends Carmilla Gameplay Tips
Carmilla excels in teamfights with her abilities to deal damage, heal allies, and steal enemy defence stats. Her playstyle is versatile, allowing her to be played as a traditional support or a semi-tank. To play Carmilla effectively, players can focus on using her passive ability to stay alive and her skills to buff allies, disrupt enemies, and deal damage. With her unique kit and powerful abilities, Carmilla is a valuable asset to any team. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero. According to her gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Joy guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late gameplay of Carmilla.
While it somewhat depends on your role, you want to play aggressively early on. Crimson Flowers makes you a potent duelist in sidelanes and a good skirmisher if you’re midlane as support. Make sure to stay within creep waves and enemies to heal up and you’ll definitely win every trade. Especially when paired with another aggressive Hero such as Gusion or Granger, you should look to fight or invade early to get an advantage.
Skill 2+ Skill 1 + Basic Attack + Skill 1
Just be careful if the enemy has heavy CC (or a Franco who might hook-flicker you under the turret) or strong kiting – if you cannot lifes-teal off enemies, you will die rather quickly.
Once you reach level 4, try to coordinate with your team to make plays. Most mages have some form of burst or CC while Tanks provide additional initiation and lockdown, therefore you’re pretty much guaranteed some wombo-combo potential. Especially with some additional regen (whether you built Oracle or Concentrated Energy), you can engage and stay within the enemy for quite a long time due to loads of additional resistance and sustain.
Skill 2+ Skill 1 + Skill 3
Due to Carmilla’s high Movement Speed, you can easily pick off careless Marksmen or Mages farming sidelanes. The stun of her second skill lasts reasonably long and usually suffices to kill a squishy target. Afterwards, you can easily pressure objectives and turn on the enemies with your ultimate still available.
You cannot recklessly engage anymore since a fed Marksman or Mage can easily blow you up – this is especially true if you didn’t opt for a purely defensive build. Ideally, they want to wait for your Tank to engage and instantly follow up to make sure the enemies get chain-CC’ed. Alternatively, you can still look for picks because not every enemy is patient enough to wait for you to show on the Map.
Make sure to activate your Spell early in case you went with Revitalize or Vengeance, just to make sure you don’t get burst instantly.
Also, look to counter-engage if the enemy starts a fight. Usually, they will blow a lot of important cooldowns to finish off a target, which means you have more room to engage and get close without fearing to get blown up. Prioritize squishies or whoever has the highest value for the enemy team. It can be alright to engage onto the Tanks if you can chain them to priority targets.
Try to ambush whenever possible and pressure the Lord once you have the numbers advantage. And as always, don’t die, kill the enemy, and win the game.
