Best Builds for Kagura in Mobile Legends

You can try many builds on Kagura. All you have to do is 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 Kagura on the battlefield.

Core Build

  • Arcane Boots: For early game magical penetration. Substitute you can use Demon shoes too to avoid Mana-related complications.
  • Lightning Truncheon: As a long-range skill-based hero lightning truncheon can help Kagura to deal damage enemies more easily.
  • Clock of Destiny: Clock of destiny not only will make lightning Truncheon’s passive more strong, but it will also give Kagura a good amount of HP to help her sustain against enemy burst damage dealer.
  • Holy Crystal: As it increases magic power it helps Kagura in the late game to deal more magic damage to enemies.
  • Genius Wand: Genius wand’s passive reduces enemies magic defense hence Kagura’s burst damage will hurt more.
  • Divine Glaive: Kagura inherits a decent amount of magic power from all of her items, getting Divine Glaive can break enemy’s magic defense by a lot and make kagura’s magic damage a lot more effective. It should be a must-pick if the enemy has a tanky lineup.

Optional Build

  • Blood Wings: A great amount of magic power alongside the given HP from the blood wings will make Kagura a lot more compatible in late-game situations.
  • Magic Necklace:The anti-regen passivity of the necklace will be helpful in team fights in a particular situation where the enemy has more than one lifesteal hero.
  • Winter Truncheon: Burst damage dealers (Gusion, Hayabusa, Aldous, Vale, etc) can prove to be a threat to Kagura. Winter Truncheon’s passive (Frozen) can make her immune to any kind of damage thus this item can save her from lethal attacks if correctly cast. 

Mobile Legends Kagura Gameplay Tips

Kagura, as a mid to late-game mage, lacks proper damage in the early game. Be sure to take advantage of her long-range first skill to poke enemy from a safe distance and gain a farm advantage in the lane. According to her gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Kagura guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late phases of the game. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero.

Early Game

Start by buying boot and go to mid-lane to clear the first wave of minions, keep an eye on the map and try to give vision to your allies by placing your umbrella in the bush. It will help them to win the contest of getting Lithowonder in that early phase.

By now Kagura should be level 2 and use that second skill’s short stun as an advantage in early ganks. After completing boots make sure to buy Lightning Truncheon as the first core item. Do not expect to deal a huge amount of damage and burst down squishy enemies in one combo in this early phase.

Mid Game

To make Lightning Truncheon’s passive deal more damage consider Clock of Destiny as her second core item. After getting these two core items Kagura should be able to deal a decent amount of damage to the enemy backline and even can kill squishy backlines who are not in full HP. So you should always target the backline in a gank.

Late Game

If you manage to get some kills by now or at least a good number of assists then Kagura should be able to buy a third core item i.e. Holy Crystal. After getting these three core items Kagura can get a bit aggressive and can haunt down off- positioned Marksman or Mage. Though not being a core item, in the current meta Genius Wand is a very popular pick for Kagura, be sure to buy it.

For the last item, you can choose any of the four above-mentioned items i.e. Divine Glaive Blood Wings, Magic Necklace, Winter Truncheon. As Kagura can give vision using her umbrella from a safe distance it can be very helpful when contesting Turtle in mid-game or lord in the late game. After getting all these items, remember to sell boot and buy Immorality.

Skill Combos for Kagura

Throws Kagura’s umbrella towards the enemy. Casting ultimate now will activate its first phase of dealing damage while instantly resetting the Seimei umbrella’s cooldown. Now quickly reposition your umbrella according to the enemy, tap Rasho Umbrella Flee to teleport to umbrella giving the enemy a short stun, and make sure to hit the enemy with Ultimate’s delayed 2nd phase (without umbrella) damage.

skill combos kagura

Then use ultimate’s 1st stage (with umbrella) to complete the combo. Use primary Rasho Umbrella Flee (with umbrella) for getting out after completing. As Kagura’s 2nd phase (without umbrella) of ultimate has a short delay, Kagura can technically use both of her Ultimates simultaneously to make a perfect combo.
