Harith 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 Harith to his maximum potential.
Passive – Key Insight (Buff)
Harith gains insight from his Key and reduces his time controlled by up to 45% depending on the number of enemy heroes near him.
Skill 1 – Synchro Fission (AoE)
CD – 5.0
Harith creates a phantom of himself in the opposite direction and releases Synchro Fission together, each dealing 204/228/252/276/300/324 (+84% Total Magic Power) points of Magic Damage to all enemy units on the path. When the 2 Hariths fuse together, an explosion occurs, dealing 510/570/630/690/750/810 (+210% Total Magic Power) points of Magic Damage to all enemies in the explosion area.
Skill 2 – Chrono Dash (Blink, Buff)
CD – 9.3
Harith dashes to a designated direction, gaining a shield that absorbs at least 150/190/230/270/310/300 (+120% Total Magic Power) points of damage and enhancing his next Basic Attack. Harith’s enhanced Basic Attack deals 200/230/260/290/320/350 (+80% Total Magic Power) points of Magic Damage and slows the enemies by 40% for 1 second. Hitting an enemy with Harith’s enhanced Basic Attack reduces the cooldown of the next Chrono Dash by 3 seconds.
Ultimate Skill – Zaman Force (Buff, Slowed)
CD – 40.0/35.0/30.0
Harith uses his Key to summon the Zaman Force. When the multidimensional rift appears, the cooldown of Chrono Dash is reduced by 4 seconds. The rift slows nearby enemies by 35% for a short period of time. If Harith comes into contact with the rift when using Chrono Dash, he will absorb the energy within it, so as to reduce the cooldown of Synchro Fission/Chrono Dash by 1 second/3 second respectively.
Skill-up method for Harith
Unlock first skill first, as it is primary damage in the early game followed by his second skill. Unlock Ultimate at level 4. Prioritize upgrading his second skill first as it reduces the CD of the dash and gives enhanced basic attack then second skill and Upgrade Ultimate whenever available.
Best Emblem set and Spells for Harith in Mobile Legends
Harith is greatly benefited from higher CD reduction builds and emblem setup. Custom Mage Emblem is recommended for Harith. Maximize CD reduction point on the first row and Magic Penetration on the second row. Use the Mystery Shop as the talent point which helps to get items at a lower cost.
- CD Reduction (+3)
- Magic Pen (+3)
- Mystery Shop
This guide is focused on playing Harith in the mid lane or in the gold lane. Although he is decent in Jungling too, it is very hard to go against current sustained-based heroes META. So, it’s better to play him as second-core beside the jungler. He is very weak to hard CCs.
Purify can help him to execute his combo properly without getting interrupted while dashing in and out. Purify is the recommended spell. Aegis is also a good choice to soak up some damage and give a chance to stay alive. Flicker can be used to chase low HP enemies or escape sticky situations.

Mobile Legends Harith Gameplay Tips
Harith was popular in the jungler role. But in the current META, his pick rate is not very high. He can be played in the mid lane as the main magic damage dealer or in the gold lane. Playing him in the mid-lane is different from other Mages. He is a skill-based hero. To be able to do good with him the players need to have high game mechanics.
The same goes for playing Harith in the gold lane. 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 Harith guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.
Although Harith is not very strong in the early game, he can join team fights after reaching level 4 or unlocking his ultimate. His dashing ability in Ultimate makes it very hard to catch him without cc or counter heroes. As you are playing him as a mid-lane mage, it’s better to roam around the map always and put pressure in the side lanes, especially in the gold lane. It is very important to clear mid-lane minions as soon as possible in order to rotate lane to lane faster. Help jungler to take down the turtle with the tank or support.
Harith can dominate team fights after getting his two core items. Unlike any mage, Harith is very good at killing the backline because of his insane dashing ability. Try to get these core items like Enchanted Talisman and Calamity Reaper as soon as possible. He is also very hard to kill in team fights without hard cc skills.
His second skill gives him an extra shield depending on the number of enemies. If there are more enemies then he will get more shields by dashing towards them, his passive also helps to reduce the cc effects. So, his positioning in team fights is very important. Go for the squishy backline first. Harith falls behind if he is not well farmed or when he has lower gold than enemies. Always try to keep track of your farm and try to be more efficient in getting your items quicker.
The most important thing to remember while playing Harith is to use a basic attack after using his second skill. This is what makes him powerful during his ultimate duration. He can dash continuously using this combo. In order to have almost no CD dash, Harith needs a 40% CD reduction. That’s why it’s really important to get these CD reduction items as soon as possible. Harith can be played in the gold lane because gold lane gives extra gold on last-hitting minions. This helps to get these items faster.
Harith can deal an insane amount of damage in the late game with the proper build. Although he is very strong, he is still a mage and all mages are squishy. A hard CC can disrupt your combo and the dash will not reset, this will make you venerable. Do not initiate first, unless it’s a good trade.
Try not to be the focus of the enemy team and wait a bit till they use some of their cc skills, then join the fight with your ultimate. If you still get stunned by hard cc use your battle spell purify, to remove all the CCs and execute your combo properly. It is very important to use purify at the right moment, try not to waste it. Avoid picking Harith if the enemy has Khufra, Minsitthar. They are well known as Anti-dash heroes or dash counters.

Since release Harith was nerfed many times to balance his impact in matches. But all these nerfs and adjustments made him almost unplayable. He is not being picked much in the current meta.
