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

Night has fallen... let the killing... begin!

The once permanent banned hero Helcurt is claiming its dominance once again in the land of dawn. In patch 1.5.32, Moonton completely removed the silence effect from Helcurt’s first skill by giving a slow effect instead. As Helcurt is not a good choice as a sidelaner, after the introduction of Jungle Boots, Helcurt must take Retribution as a jungler instead of his trademark Petrify spell. And after staying as least pick in the Assassin list for a long time, in the latest patch 1.6.50, Helcurt got buff for all of his skills. In this Mobile Legends guide, we will take a look at the best emblem, spell, build, including tips and tricks to dominate every game with Helcurt.

Skill Analysis

Helcurt has three active skills and a passive skill like all the 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 Helcurt to his utmost potential.

Passive – Race Advantage (CC)

passive helcurt

Enemy heroes will be silenced for 1.5s if they use any Crowd Controlling skill upon Helcurt. This silence effect can be triggered once in every 4s.

CD – 10.0/9.6/9.2/8.8/8.4/8.06/5.0
Mana – 60/70/80/90/100/110

skill 1 helcurt

Helcurt can teleport to the chosen location. Hitting an enemy will deal 150/180/210/240/270/300 + (70% of total Physical Attack) amount of Physical damage and also slow them by 90% (slow effect decays gradually). Successfully hitting an enemy hero or creep can generate one Deadly Poison Stinger for Helcurt. During the Ultimate, Shadow Transition gain the ability to silence the enemy for 1.5s.

Skill 2 – Deadly Stinger(Burst, Slow)

CD – 4.0 at all level
Mana – 70/80/90/100/110/120

skill 2 helcurt

This skill is Helcurt’s main source of damage. Helcurt can gain Deadly Stinger whenever he uses the basic attack. Successfully hitting enemy hero/creep or using ultimate can also provide a Deadly Stinger. Helcurt can stack up to 5 Deadly Stinger and the number of Stingers will begin to drop after 8s.

Casting Deadly Stinger to designated direction will deal 180/210/240/270/300/330 (+80% extra Physical Attack) amount of Physical damage to the enemy hit by it while slowing them by 8% for a short amount of time. Deadly Stinger deals only 70% damage to creeps and minions. Helcurt’s Deadly Stinger can trigger attack effects i.e. passive of Demon Hunter Sword, but it can not trigger Critical strike.

Ultimate Skill – Dark Night Falls (Buff, Control)

CD – 60s at all level
Mana – 120/140/160

skill 3 helcurt

Dark Night Falls provides Helcurt with 10% extra attack speed. Casting this ultimate skill Helcurt spread darkness all over the map, reducing the vision range of all enemy heroes and limiting them from their sight of allies for 3.5s. It also provides Helcurt with 10%/15%/20% extra attack speed and 65%/70%/75% movement speed for a duration of 8s. During the Dark Night Helcurt’s stacked Deadly Stinger won’t drop.

Skill-up method for Helcurt

Helcurt’s Deadly Stinger is the primary source of damage so prioritize upgrading it to the max. Upgrade First skill accordingly and Ultimate whenever available.

Battle Spells

As a Helcurt jungler Retribution is the only spell you will need. Still, if you want to try out sidelane Helcurt, Petrify is recommended.

Best Builds for Helcurt in Mobile Legends

One can try many builds on Helcurt. 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 Helcurt on the battlefield. We are providing our top recommended build to support you through different scenarios, you can either go with sustain or go full attack build.

Attack Speed + Damage Build

In this build, we will give a mix of attack speed items and also some damage items to balance the gameplay.

build helcurt mlbb Mobile Legends Helcurt Guide
Attack Build for Helcurt
  • Warrior Boots: Helcurt is fragile like all other assassins, Warrior Boots will give him a small amount of defense in the early game.
  • Demon Hunter Sword: Helcurt’s second skill is now considered a stacked basic attack and so it can trigger DHS’s passive easily. Using a full stacked Deadly Stinger will hurt enemy heroes a lot and also DHS provides a decent amount of life steal so that Helcurt can actively fight more on the battlefield.
  • War Axe: Helcurt’s Deadly Stinger is a good source for triggering War Axe’s stack passive easily. It can be considered as one of the best items for Helcurt to make him useful in the early game too.
  • Endelss Battle: A must item for Helcurt. It will not deal true damage to enemies but also provide Helcurt a mana regen and lifesteal too.
  • Malefic Roar: If enemies think they can be safe by buying armor then Malefic Roar will surely punish them. It reduces enemy armor by providing Physical Penetration and also carries a decent amount of Physical Attack itself.
  • Scarlet Phantom: By giving a huge amount of attack speed Scarlet Phantom can trigger War Axe’s passive in much less time. Scarlet Phantom can also prove to be scary in the late game as you could more basic attack in a short amount of time and always be ready with full stacked Deadly Stinger for a burst damage output.

Additionally, in the late game replace boot with Immortality or Blade of Despair, whichever you think is needed according to the game situation.

Burst Damage Build

Damage Build for Helcurt
  • Swift Boots: Attack speed provided at the early phase will help Helcurt to farm faster.
  • War Axe: Helcurt’s Deadly Stinger is a good source for triggering War Axe’s stack passive easily. It can be considered as one of the best items for Helcurt to make him useful in the early game too.
  • Demon Hunter Sword: Helcurt’s second skill is now considered a stacked basic attack and so it can trigger DHS’s passive easily. Using a full stacked Deadly Stinger will hurt enemy heroes a lot and also DHS provides a decent amount of life steal so that Helcurt can actively fight more on the battlefield.
  • Blade of Despair: Providing the most Physical Attack, BOD is a must-buy for maximum burst damage output. Demon Hunter Sword lacks damage when the enemy is low on health, in this matter BOD’s passive strike on to the enemy. When at below 50% HP, BOD will hurt enemies a lot.
  • Endless Battle: Thanks to BOD, Endless Battle’s true damage will be increased by a lot. Also, it will provide Helcurt a mana regen boost and a decent amount of lifesteal too.
  • Malefic Roar: Malefic Roar’s Physical PEN combined with BOD will surely punish enemies even if they buy physical armor to defend themselves.

Additionally, Berserk Fury or Blade of Heptaseas can be a great choice in the place of BOD, though you must decide whether to choose these items or not, according to the enemy lineup. You can buy immortality or choose an additional attack item also in the place of boots in the late game.

Mobile Legends Helcurt Gameplay Tips

After not being able to use Petrify and lowered the Silence effect from the first skill, playing Helcurt properly may take a bit of practice and patience when in the battle. Helcurt is a late-game Assassin, for this reason, one should focus on farming in the early game and be cautious in the team fights.

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 Helcurt guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.

Early Game

Helcurt is not an efficient jungler like Hayabusa, Gusion, etc. other assassins, so ask your Tank/Support to help you farm so that you reach level 4 as soon as possible. He is not a buff-dependent assassin, be sure to take the buff on which side Lithowanderer is about to spawn.

Ask midlaners to gank Turtle lane and try to kill Turtle lane’s enemy to get an advantage when contesting Turtle. Don’t risk your life on getting kills, getting assists in the early game is okay too, focus on getting items first. Always remember to fully stack Deadly Stinger before joining a fight.

Mid Game

By this time you have 2/3 items according to your farm efficiency. Keep a sharp eye on the map for the chance of getting kills and be sure to gank frequently on the sidelanes. Whenever teamfight happens, don’t just jump in the front line, make yourself hidden and put your focus on killing the enemy backline i.e. Mage/MM/enemy Jungler. Keep in mind that Helcurt’s Ultimate may save your ally from the enemy in sticky situations, so don’t hesitate to use it to assist your ally to escape easily.

Late Game

As a burst damage dealer, Helcurt with full item build is a lethal assassin in late-game who can hunt its prey very easily. Don’t hesitate to hunt down any squishy enemy wandering solo on the map, a less enemy will help you win teamfights easily. As a reminder that Helcurt is himself a squishy hero too, so always have patience and wait for the perfect opportunity.

Helcurt on the MLBB battlefield

Helcurt is a very powerful hero when played to his strengths. He can prove lethal against any Mage/Marksman in the land of dawn. However, sometimes, he comes up short against high mobile heroes such as Hayabusa, Ling, Granger, and Martis. So be careful while facing them on the battlefield.

Final Thoughts

Helcurt used to be the easiest assassin to play, but that’s not the case after not being able to use Petrify and not having a proper silence effect from the first skill. To master him one needs to master his Deadly Stinger which is the main source of his damage. Though his first skill provides a silent effect during Dark Night Falls, enemies can still dodge Deadly Stinger if the Helcurt user were slow.

An excellent pick for rank games, Helcurt is definitely a good pick for the current meta. These tips will surely help you to guide easy wins with Helcurt in Mobile Legends. You can also refer to our latest tier list to know more about the revamped meta heroes in this current season.
