Mobile Legends Diggie Guide: Best Emblem, Build and Gameplay Tips

Hoot hoot! Horology is my craft, Diggie is my name.

Diggie is one of the most banned heroes right now because of his annoying skill set, especially when paired with utility junglers. Even though Diggie looks so powerless, he is a reliable support hero, perfect for courageous players who like to take charge on the front lines. With his unique ability to neutralize crowd control skills and turn the tables in battles, Diggie can be a real nuisance to enemies and a savior to teammates. In this Mobile Legends guide, we will take a look at the best emblem, spell, and builds, including tips and tricks to dominate every game with Diggie.

Skill Analysis

Diggie has three active skills and a passive skill like most other heroes in-game. In this Mobile Legends guide, we will also talk about the skills to use in certain scenarios to play Diggie to his maximum potential.

Passive – Young Again (Buff)

diggie passive

After being eliminated, Diggie will not return to base. Instead, it will turn into an egg, and gain a new set of skills, Diggie still can roam around the map to locate hidden enemies or disturb them with its presence until the cooldown back again.

If you get killed in a team fight, look for low HP enemies and use your skills to disrupt their recalls. This forces them to walk back to their base, delaying their return to the battlefield and potentially giving your team an advantage.

Skill 1 – Auto Alarm Bomb (AOE, Slow)

CD – 8.0.0
Mana – 70.0

skill 1 diggie

Diggie tosses out an owl-shaped alarm that sits tight for 25 seconds or until it spots an enemy nearby. Once it does, it flies over and explodes on impact. The explosion deals a solid 500( +100% Total Magic Power). It also slows down enemies hit by 30%.

Every time his explosion hits an enemy hero, he gets 2 stacks of Dangerous Sparks. These stacks make his owl alarm even stronger, boosting its damage by 1% each. He can collect up to 60 of these stacks, but he loses half if he dies. Even when Diggie’s in his egg form, he can still gather stacks of Dangerous Sparks. Every time his skill tags an enemy hero, he grabs a stack. And get this, he can have up to 5 owl alarms out at once.

Use this skill to check bushes for hidden enemies or to create a temporary ward on the map. Placing it strategically in areas lacking vision helps you gather crucial information about enemy movements and uncover potential threats.

Skill 2 – Reverse Time (CC, Damage)

CD – 15.0
Mana – 90.0

diggie skill 2

Diggie targets an enemy hero for 4 seconds, then brings them back to where they were before, dealing 150( +100% Total Magic Power). It also slows them down by 80% for a bit. If the enemy strays from the circle, they’ll get pulled back early.

This skill works best against heroes who can move around a lot, like assassins. Targeting these agile enemies maximizes its effectiveness, disrupting their movements and limiting their ability to navigate the battlefield.

Ultimate Skill – Time Journey

CD – 76.0
Mana – 130.0

diggie ultimate skill

Diggie clears away any bad effects on nearby allies, even himself. Then he gives them a hefty shield of 650( +300% Total Magic Power) and makes them immune to control for 3 seconds. Plus, he gets a quick speed boost for 0.5 seconds.

It’s best to activate this ability immediately after your teammates have been hit with crowd control effects. This timing maximizes its effectiveness, as it can swiftly remove the disabling effects and restore your team’s ability to fight back. In team fights, this skill shines brightly, turning the tide in your team’s favor.

Skill-up method for Diggie

Diggie’s alarm bomb will be very important during the battle. Therefore, focusing on upgrading his first skill will be your priority to reduce its cooldown as the bomb will become your eye in the bush, and it is also useful to execute low HP enemies. Followed by Skill 2 and upgrade the Ultimate whenever available. Skill 1 >> Ultimate >> Skill 2.

Combinations to perform with Diggie

Diggie’s easy combos are essential for maximizing his utility and support potential in battles. By strategically chaining his abilities, you can disrupt enemy formations, provide crowd control, and ensure your team’s success on the battlefield. Here are some combinations to help you dominate with Diggie:


Use Auto Alarm Bomb to initiate, followed by Reverse Time to disrupt enemies, then follow up with Auto Attacks for damage. This combo is great for laning, harassing enemies, and creating pressure, as it allows Diggie to control the battlefield and keep enemies on their toes.

Skill 1 + Skill 2 + AA

Begin with Reverse Time to catch enemies or prevent their escape, then use an Auto Alarm Bomb to apply additional pressure or crowd control, followed by an Auto Attack. This combo is ideal for chasing down enemies and ensuring they don’t get away, as it allows Diggie to control the pace of engagements and secure kills for the team.

Best Emblem set and Spells for Diggie in Mobile Legends

As you play Diggie on the Roaming, I suggest using the Custom Support emblem. You can pick talents that best match your style and needs to improve your Diggie gameplay.

Custom Support Emblem

When playing as a Roaming, Diggie gets a boost from the Custom Support emblem, which boosts his Healing EffectCooldown Reduction, and Movement Speed. These improvements align perfectly with Diggie’s supportive role, allowing him to provide better utility to his team, stay more active in fights with reduced cooldowns, and rotate swiftly across the map to assist allies or control objectives.

As for standard talents, I recommend Agility and Pull Yourself Together. Agility makes him faster, helping him rotate in the map quickly to support teammates and escape danger. Pull Yourself Together reduces cooldowns, letting Diggie use his support skills more often. As for the core talent, choose Impure Rage. It offers a significant boost to his damage output and mana sustainability, both of which are crucial for his effectiveness in battles. However, if you want to read an in-depth emblem guide, check here.

Battle Spells

For Diggie, Flameshoot, Revitalize, and Flicker are the best spells. Flameshot adds extra damage, useful for dealing with escaping enemies or protecting low-health teammates. Revitalize boosts Diggie’s healing powers, making him a more dependable support in fights by keeping teammates healthier for longer. Meanwhile, Flicker is handy for helping Diggie escape danger, compensating for his lack of speed.

Best Builds for Diggie in Mobile Legends

One can try many builds on Diggie. All one needs to do is to just follow the enemy’s pick and then decide the role on the battlefield. I have set out the following template builds in our guide to try out with Diggie on the Mobile Legends battlefield.

Mobile Legends Diggie Gameplay Tips

Diggie is a popular hero, especially in the previous seasons due to the emergence of Diggie feeder META. Even after that, Diggie still has its popularity as support or commonly as a roamer because of the Utility Junglers. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero. According to his gameplay, I can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Diggie guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late games.

Early Game

In the early game, prioritize unlocking Diggie’s first skill and use it to spam auto alarm bombs in bushes or on minions. Be with your gold laner until the first turtle spawns. Once you have your ultimate, start roaming to other lanes, especially where the turtle spawns. But always be aware of your core or teammates who could be targeted by enemies.

In the early game, be aggressive with Diggie. Use his passive to disrupt enemy farming or poke their midlaner and roamer. Don’t worry too much about dying early on because Diggie’s cooldowns are short, allowing you to continue causing trouble with his egg presence.

Mid Game

During the mid-game, continue spamming auto alarm bombs, but now consider placing them in nearby enemy bushes for surprise attacks. You can also attempt to steal enemy buffs or jungle camps. Just remember to spam Diggie’s Auto Alarm Bomb strategically and avoid overextending.

Don’t wait for Diggie’s auto alarm bomb to fully cool down for the third bomb. Spam it immediately, especially in bushes, to detect hidden enemies or disrupt recalling enemies.

Late Game

In the late game, stick close to your team and position yourself safely until team fights erupt. Be ready to use Time Journey to nullify enemy crowd control and Reverse Time to catch fleeing enemies as needed by your teammates.

It’s crucial to use Time Journey at the right moment during team fights. Save Reverse Time to catch escaping enemies, particularly high-priority targets or retreating enemies. By pulling them back into the time zone, your teammates can easily follow up with their skills, increasing your team’s chances of securing kills and objectives.

Only use Time Journey inadequate time. Diggie’s ultimate is your teammate’s diamond during the team fight. Time Journey will negate enemies’ crowd control, and enemies’ attack, and provide your teammate shield as well to support them further to win the team fight.

Final Thoughts

Even after the Diggie Feeder Meta, Diggie remains a popular hero thanks to its versatility and strong support skills. Just remember, Diggie’s HP isn’t as high as a pure tank, even with defensive items. So, timing is crucial to know when to use Time Journey to soak up enemy damage or sacrifice yourself as an egg to disrupt enemies.

And further when you have to sacrifice yourself to become an egg and start disturbing enemies with its egg presence. These tips will surely help you to guide easy wins with Diggie in Mobile Legends. You can also refer to our latest tier list to know more about the revamped meta heroes in this current season.
