Skill Analysis 

Wanwan, like many other heroes in Mobile Legends, has three active skills and a passive skill. In this Mobile Legends guide, we’ll discuss when to use the skills for Wanwan in different situations and how to use skill combinations to unleash Wanwan’s full potential in Mobile Legends.

Wanwan Tiger Pace

When Wanwan hits an enemy with her attacks, their positions and weaknesses are exposed for 5 seconds. After striking an enemy’s weaknesses, she deals an extra 12% damage for 5 seconds and inflicts 55 (+3 times her hero level) True Damage. Wanwan can also move a short distance when she throws a Sleeve Dart, and this movement speed increases with her attack speed.

Skill 1 – Swallow’s Path ( AoE, CC)

CD –  10.0 / 9.6 / 9.2 / 8.8 / 8.4 / 8.0

Wanwan Crossbow of Tang

Wanwan throws a Fire Swallow in a specific direction, triggering Tiger Pace and dealing 120-220 (+40% Total Physical Attack) Physical Damage to nearby enemies. Every 0.5 seconds, she retrieves a Swallow Dagger from the Fire Swallow, dealing 60-120 (+65% Total Physical Attack) Physical Damage to enemies it hits, and slowing them by 30% for 1.5 seconds. If the same target is hit by the Swallow Dagger twice, they are stunned for 0.5 seconds.

Skill 2 – Needles in Flowers (Remove CC, AoE)

CD – 16.0 / 15.0 / 14.0 / 13.0 / 12.0 / 11.0

Wanwan can instantly remove any crowd control effects from herself, activating Tiger Pace and releasing deadly needles towards nearby enemies. This attack deals 150-250 (+60% Total Physical Attack) Physical Damage.

Ultimate Skill – Crossbow of Tang (Burst)

CD – 40.0 / 37.0 / 34.0

Passive: The damage Wanwan deals to creeps increases by 20%-40% each time she upgrades her Crossbow of Tang.

Active: When Wanwan activates her crossbow, she fires arrows at an enemy hero for 2.5 seconds. Each arrow inflicts 70-90 (+35% Total Physical Attack) Physical Damage. If she eliminates an enemy hero while her crossbow is active, she switches to another target, extends her crossbow activation for 1 second (up to 3 times, max 5.5 seconds), and boosts her Attack Speed by 30%. The Triggering Crossbow of Tang requires hitting an enemy’s 3 Weaknesses.

The shots from Crossbow of Tang count as Basic Attacks, and the number of arrows she shoots depends on her Attack Speed. Wanwan retrieves her crossbow or eliminates an enemy hero, Tiger Pace is activated.

Skill-up method for Wanwan

Unlock her first skill first followed by her second skill. Unlock ultimate at level 4. Prioritize upgrading her first skill and the Ultimate whenever it’s possible. Her first skill is the most effective for activating her ultimate.

Combinations to perform with Wanwan

Wanwan, the agile marksman in Mobile Legends, has a versatile skill set that allows for various combinations and strategies in battles. Here are some combinations and tips to maximize Wanwan’s potential:


This is the best combo to activate Wanwan’s Skill 3, it is best when you hide in a bush and surprise enemies. Make sure that you break the enemy’s weakness at the back with your Skill 1 and break the two at the front with basic attacks. Start like this:

Basic Attack + Skill 1 + Basic Attack + Skill 2 + Basic Attack + Skill 3

Use this when you are controlled by enemies and this is good when facing low-mobility heroes. Use skill 2 to remove the CC then break the weaknesses. Perform like this:

Skill 2 + Basic Attack + Skill 1 + Basic Attack + Skill 3

Best Emblem set and Spells for Wanwan in Mobile Legends

For Wanwan in the Gold Lane, we suggest using the Custom Marksman emblem. You can pick talents that best match your style and needs to improve your Wanwan gameplay.

Custom Marksman Emblem

In the Gold Lane, Wanwan benefits from the Custom Marksman emblem, which boosts her Attack Speed, Adaptive Attack, and Lifesteal, allowing her to deal more damage and maintain her health in fights. For standard talents, we recommend Swift and Pull Yourself Together to improve attack speed and reduce the cooldown of battle spells and equipment.

As for the core talent, choose Weakness Finder. It not only slows down enemy movement but also reduces their attack speed. This makes it a solid choice for gaining control in battles and avoiding enemies. However, if you want to read an in-depth emblem guide, check here.

Battle Spells

If players are feeling confident and trust the team, you can opt for the aggressive spell, Inspire. It significantly boosts your ultimate’s damage and provides more Attack Speed, which can help you trigger the last Weakness and move swiftly behind enemies. Alternatively, you can choose Aegis for a shield that safeguards you against burst damage.

  • Demon Hunter Sword: Wanwan’s ultimate will trigger DHS’ passive as well. But even now, the on-hit damage helps Wanwan with sufficient damage output. Due to her overall low damage output with basic attacks, Demon Hunter Sword helps with DPS while still providing good Attack Speed.

  • Malefic Roar: If enemies have high physical defence items or tanky heroes. This item can lower their physical defence with high Physical penetration.
  • Wind of Nature: This is the best item to face against physical damage dealers. Its passive is great to outplay the enemies. Activating Wind Chant makes it immune to all physical attacks for 2s and also gives life steal.
  • Rosegold Meteor: The deal choice to defend against Magic burst damage as it offers a shield that absorbs and mitigates incoming magical damage, protecting against sudden bursts of magic-based attacks.
  • Berserker’s Fury: This item increases crit chances. This helps to burst down enemies with basic attacks.
  • The Final Item: This depends on the enemy lineup or game situation. If the enemy has high magic damage heroes then build Athena Shield to avoid getting busted. You can also buy Immortality which can give you a chance to escape.

Mobile Legends Wanwan Gameplay Tips

Wanwan, like other marksmen, relies on items to perform well. In the early game, it will be crucial to focus on farming and gaining gold while avoiding ganks. As a Gold Laner, you should stay in your lane. To excel with any hero, a good understanding of the map is essential. Wanwan’s gameplay can be divided into three phases: early, mid, and late game. Our Mobile Legends Wanwan guide provides a game plan for each of these phases.

Early Game

Early in the game, the main goal is to farm and accumulate gold. Stay in the Gold Lane and be mindful of the positioning to avoid getting caught by the enemy. It is essential to have map awareness and be cautious of potential ganks.

If your lane opponent is slow or immobile, you can attempt to harass them and secure a kill. However, your top priority remains efficient farming and staying alive. Keep an eye on the map, and if the enemy midlaner approaches, consider retreating to avoid danger.

Mid Game

With Corrosion Scythe, Wanwan gains a power boost in the early game. Focus on helping secure objectives like the Turtle and targeting tanky foes to unlock your ultimate. One should trigger all the weaknesses of a melee hero before using your ultimate.

In the mid-game, Wanwan’s damage output increases, and she becomes a valuable asset in team fights. Pay attention to objectives and rotations while capitalizing on farming opportunities. This is essential for her game impact.

Late Game

In the late game, Wanwan must be cautious and not get too overconfident. Even with one defensive item, she can still be taken down quickly. It’s a good idea to stay back and ambush enemies by using her first skill to set up her ultimate. Correct positioning is key, as one wrong move can cost the game. However, a well-timed ultimate can be a game-changer, so patience is important. Don’t forget to adapt your build if necessary.

Her ultimate is excellent for taking out enemies quickly. To win, it’s essential to control the map and position yourself strategically to secure objectives.
