Mobile Legends Grock Gameplay Tips
Grock is a Tank with abilities that have so been buffed to deliver an enormous amount of damage to any marksman. 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 Grock guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.
As a tank it is advisable to roam and try to assist your jungler to take the purple buff just in case enemies would invade your team’s jungle. If not, proceed to assist your gold laner’s farming. Use Grock’s Skill 1 to poke enemies by charging it well enough for extra damage while staying close to the wall for the extra buff to your stats.
After unlocking Grock’s Skill 2 always try to place it in a way that the wall formed will obstruct enemies’ path and delay them from clearing minion waves. Good examples of how to place the skill are by trapping enemies inside their turrets, even better is to trap enemies within your team’s turret.
While playing Grock try and have a good awareness of the map and assist your teammates in taking objectives. Do note that while trying to rotate or switch lanes easily, always stay close to walls for the extra speed boost gotten from its passive. After unlocking your ultimate place it in a way that it hits a wall or turret since the ultimate ability deals extra damage that way. Additionally, it is recommended to follow this skill combo to gain an upper hand in the battle:
Skill 1 + Skill 2 + Skill 3 + Skill 1
In the late game, try to protect your team’s main damage dealer since they just might be the most targeted hero on the battlefield while obeying Grock’s passive that’s to stay close to walls. Also, try to place the wall from Grock’s skill 2 in such a way that it would segment or pick out enemies’ main damage dealer so your team would be able to initiate a perfect attack against such targets.
Then one can follow up with the ultimate because of the knock-up effect it provides. A good idea is to pick out heroes with low blinking skills away from their team using Skill 2, doing this certainly would increase your chances of winning on the battlefield.
