Skill Analysis 

Faramis 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 as well as skill combos to be able to play Faramis to his maximum potential.

Passive – Vicious Retrieval


Every 4s, Faramis next skill against enemy heroes and summoned objects generates a soul fragment on the spot. Faramis can absorb the soul fragments to restore 100 (+50% Total Magic Power) HP and gain 3 extra Magic Power (up to 40 stacks).

Upon death, he consumes the absorbed soul fragments to reduce the respawn timer, each reducing the timer by 3% (up to 90%). Enemies that die around Faramis also have a chance to drop soul fragments.

Skill 1 – Shadow Stampede


Faramis enters the Shadow state for 3s, gaining 70% extra movement speed, 50/60/70/80/90/100 extra Physical and Magic defense, increases soul absorption range, and the ability to move through terrains. Enemy heroes that come into contact with Faramis in this state are dealt 250/280/310/340/370/400 (+60% Total Magic Power) and applied with a nether Mark.

Each enemy hero hit also reduces this skill cooldown by 20%. Upon leaving the Shadow state, Faramis pulls all the marked enemy heroes towards him, dealing them 250/280/310/340/370/400 (+60% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage. On using again, Faramis leaves the shadow state early and pulls the marked enemy towards him.

Skill 2 – Ghost Busters


Faramis gathers Nether energy in a fan-shaped area ahead, dealing 330/360/390/420/450/480 (+144% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to enemies within. The energy will then split and bounce to nearby enemies, dealing 200/220/240/260/280/300 (+72% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage (splits up to 3 times on enemy hero hits and one Time on non-enemy hero hits.

Ultimate Skill – Cult Altar


Faramis turns his surroundings into the Nether Realm for 6s, gaining increased soul fragment absorption range while granting affected allied heroes, including himself, 400/550/700 plus 15 (+5% Total Magic Power) % extra HP and 50% extra Movement Speed for 1s. When the extra HP is depleted, the hero will enter a brief Resurrection state, becoming unable to move or attack but immune to damage for 1.3s.

Skill-up method for Faramis

It is advisable to first prioritize and unlock Faramis skill 2 as it is his main damage source and it also helps to easily stack his passive. On attaining Lvl. 2, unlock Faramis First Skill while upgrading it accordingly. While unlocking Faramis Ultimate ability, prioritize and upgrade this skill whenever available.

Best Builds for Faramis in Mobile Legends

One can try many builds on Faramis. All 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 Faramis on the battlefield. The below item build provides for as much damage needed while laning as a Mage since Faramis can be played as a damage type mage/support.

First build, Arcane Boots as it provides extra Magic Penetration against enemy hero targets. But if one is roaming, one can bless the boots with Perks like Encourage which helps to inspire your allied teammates making them much more powerful on the battlefield. The Clock of Destiny next will help grant extra HP growth as well as magic power growth needed for damage and durability till the late game phase.

Next up is Lightning Truncheon, it’s very vital equipment since it deals extra damage when a skill is used making it more painful to enemy targets, this extra damage can also hit multiple enemy targets. Next up, Build the Glowing Wand for its extra burn effect as it makes it quite hard for enemies to Regen quickly thereby reducing their durability. While other equipment like Holy Crystal provides for as much magic power as possible, complementing this with Genius Wand will help guard against high magic defense heroes.

Mobile Legends Faramis Gameplay Tips

As discussed before, Faramis is a magic damage dealer who can be played as a damage-type mage/support. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Faramis guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.

Early Game

While playing Faramis as a laner, his Early gameplay revolves around farming and poking enemies with his abilities. In the early game, it’s advisable to go mid-lane if one’s team lacks a mage unless one is planning on roaming to help assist allied teammates. So while laning, use Faramis Skill 2 to hit the enemy hero target so as to let it split three times to nearby enemy units like minions.

Properly maximizing the perks of this skill helps to clear minion waves much more easily. On attaining lvl.2 and unlocking Faramis first skill, use it to move closer to enemy hero targets while ensuring that Faramis comes in contact with them, this will then leave a mark on those enemy heroes resulting in them being dragged towards Faramis when he leaves the shadow state.  

This is quite essential when being ganked in your lame by enemy heroes. Also while playing Faramis do also remember to follow his passive and pick up any soul fragments dropped by enemy units, as doing this grants many perks including a reduced respawn timer amongst other perks. You can additionally perform the following skill combos to gain an upper hand on the battlefield:

Skill 1 + Skill 2

Mid Game

On attaining Level 4 and unlocking Faramis ultimate ability, one must use the ultimate ability to greatly increase one’s durability as the extra HP given by this ability is quite useful to survive bad situations on the battlefield. Another important perk granted by Faramis ultimate skill is the increased range through which soul fragments could be absorbed.  

This skill can also be useful when faced with burst magic damage dealers or while trying to help your teammates take important objectives like the turtle. Hence, the mid-game laning phase gameplay of Faramis revolves around farming, and poking enemies while trying to enhance your durability against them. You can form the following skill move during this situation of the game:

Skill 1 + Skill 2 + Skill 3 + Skill 2

Late Game

In the late game laning phase, one must try to play safe as enemies might have completed their equipment builds, meaning one must plan Faramis skills well so as to prevent unnecessary deaths. In doing this, one must learn to ensure that as many enemy hero targets are hit by the shadow state from Farami’s First skill as this would help reduce the skill’s cooldown making it easier to use the skill again in a much shorter period.

Another important thing to note is that one should use Faramis ultimate ability to help assist your team’s damage dealer as the extra HP will be greatly useful during teamfight, for this to be successfully done one must make sure that allied teammates are closer to you.
