Passive – Only Fast
Chou’s next basic attack deals 180% damage and slows down the enemy by 80% after he moves for 8 yards long. This enhanced basic attack can not deal critical damage to enemies and when his passive is triggered you can easily understand it by seeing his glowing hands.

This skill has a total of 3 phases. Where the first two phases only deal damage, the last phase deals damage and knocks up the enemies. Each phase(punch) deals 180/200/220/240/260/280 amount of physical damage. He can also move through walls by using this skill’s short dash and the third phase of Skill 1 will reset Skill 2’s CD.
Skill 2 – Shunpo (Blink)
This is a very useful skill for Chou. By pressing this skill he will perform a short dash, increasing his physical Pen by 15/20/25/30/35/40 while gaining 200/230/260/290/320/350 amount of shield based on his physical attack for 2 seconds. He is immune to all CC effects and can go through walls by using this skill.
Skill 3 – The Way of Dragon (CC, Blink)
Chou’s ultimate also has 2 Phases. The first phase will knock back the enemy while dealing 400/450/500 amount of physical damage. After this you can press this skill again within 2 seconds, Chou will chase the enemy and kick him 4 times while dealing 400/450/500 amount of physical damage.

Mobile Legends Chou Gameplay Tips
When you are playing Chou as a Fighter/Offlaner go in the top lane and do the 1-2-2 rotation but if you are playing Chou as a Tank then go mid clear the first set of minions and then help your carry to take buffs. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Chou 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 go top lane, clear the first minion wave between turrets. Then come mid and take the Lithowander or Lizard. At 45 sec take the small gold crab. If your mid-laner provides support, invade enemy buff, or else again go back to your Top lane and clear minions. Prioritize Blade of Despair and try to avoid death.
This is the main phase for Chou. Do not feed to enemies and do not waste your skill 2 like any other skills. This skill 2 is the main escape/CC canceling skill when the enemy cast their Crowd Control skills. Try to master it to avoid all kinds of ganks.
Hide in the Bush and mark the enemy carry. Whenever you get that opportunity try to stun him/her by using your skill 1 and then kick him back to your turret and shut down. As an Offlaner your main duty is to push the turret and whenever 2/3 enemy heroes are dead help your team to take the turtle.
In this phase, Chou shines the most. You can bait enemies if you are low in HP. When they try to grab you just lure them to your team. And in the other Scenario play like a sneaky assassin. When the enemy team’s MM, Assassin, or Mage try to do a split push just use your spontaneous kicks to finish them off. High and dry talent point will surely help you to get that kill. Cast your Skill 1’s 3rd phase on the group of enemies to save your carry.
