The Tank emblem is the best emblem for Edith as her main damage comes from her defense due to her Ultimate skill which converts each point of Extra Physical Defense and Extra Magic Defense into 2.5 Magic Power while she is in her Flight State. Use the following Custom Tank Emblem on Edith.

Best Builds for Edith in Mobile Legends

One can try many builds on Edith. All which one needs to do is to just follow the enemy’s pick and then decide the role on the battlefield. We have set out the following template to try out with Edith on the battlefield.

  • Start off the match by buying either Warrior boots/Tough Boots to gain early game defense. The Type of Defense will depend on the Enemy line up as well as the opponent currently laning against.
  • Players need to buy the core items of the build next which are Thunderbelt and Oracle. Thunderbelt provides 800 HP, +40 Physical Defense, +30 Mana Regen and 10% cooldown reduction. Its unique passive Thunderbolt in 3s after using the skill makes Edith’s next Basic Attack deal True Damage as much as 50 plus 5% of her Extra Max HP to the enemy target and surrounding units and slow them by 40-80% (increases with Edith’s Extra Max HP) for 1s. This effect has a 1.5s cooldown.

Mobile Legends Edith Gameplay Tips

As discussed earlier Edith is the first Tank/Marksman hero. She specializes in crowd control and burst and has obnoxiously strong power as a marksman, as well as continuity as a tank. 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 Edith guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.

Early Game

At level 1, unlock Skill 2 if using Edith as a roamer or unlock Skill 1 to go to other off lanes. While laning constantly use Skill 1 and Skill 2 to harass enemies and force them to recall or use their Battle Spells.

Use Skill 2 to engage enemies and follow up with Skill 1 for a chain crowd control.

Mid Game

Have an eye on the map and help your teammates in securing objectives like killing the turtle, stealing enemy buff, or creeps while holding on to your lane. Clear minion waves as fast as possible and rotate to secure objectives.

Late Game

Edith becomes extremely dangerous after just a few items and she in her flight state during her active Ultimate phase hits like a nuke in the face. Her damage is crazy good to the point of almost being broken.
