Because of her massive critical damage, she can literally kill any enemy ADR(squishy heroes i.e. MM/Mage) with just 2 shots. And a secret fact- Harley is Lesley’s brother. You might be wondering why we are telling this? we will clear your doubt soon. In this guide, we will be seeing these ban-worthy hero skills, items, emblem, as well as some tips and tricks on how to play Lesley in Mobile Legends.
We have previously discussed how to master playing with other Mobile Legends heroes like Ling, Wanwan, Pharsa, Carmilla, Hayabusa, Atlas, Luo Yi, Yu Zhong, Aurora, Khaleed, Freya, Khufra, X.Borg. So make sure to check these hero guides as well. For now, let’s focus on Lesley.
Lesley is a hero that has four abilities which are one passive and three actives. In this Lesley guide, let’s see what are her abilities in Mobile Legends, and when you can use which skill to get the best out of her.
Passive – Lethal Shot
Whenever Lesley hits an enemy with her basic attack she will get 5pts of energy. When she does not receive any damage for 5 seconds, then her next basic attack range will increase and deals a 1.3x Critical physical damage.
Casting any skills in this time period will refresh her passive’s CD. This is the main damage dealing method for her so use it wisely
Skill 1 – Master of Camouflage (BUFF)
Lesley will enter into camouflage mode for 3 seconds. In this state, she will increase her movement speed, while dealing 50/80/110/140/170/200 amount of physical damage. During this state dealing with damage or taking damage will disclose you. Don’t just spam this skill anytime, it’s your main tool to escape from any bad situation.
Skill 2 – Tactical Grenade (Blink)(CC)
Lesley throws a grenade towards her target and knocks them back, while she slightly moves backward at the same time. The grenade will deal 150/180/210/240/270/300 amount of physical damage. By using this skill you can move through thin walls, before pressing this skill just aim it opposite of your movement direction.
If Lesley uses her second skill during ultimate then it will stop her ulti and release a Fatal bullet instantly, but keep that in mind you have to press this skill before she finishes her all fatal bullets.
Skill 3 – Ultimate Snipe (Burst)
It is a long-ranged skill for her. Whenever she activates her ultimate her gun will shoot 4 Fatal bullets back to back dealing 200/250/300 amount of physical damage while restoring her mana by 10pts for every single hit. Try to hit low hp enemy by this skill, cause it will deal more physical damage when your enemy life is draining. But fatal bullets can be blocked by other enemy heroes.
Special Buff (sibling buff)
We already told you that Harley and Lesley are siblings, so when they both are playing in the same team they will receive +10HP.
Skill-up Method for Lesley
Max out skill 1 first followed by skill 2 and ultimate whenever available.
Best Emblem Set and Spells for Lesley in Mobile Legends
Lesley is a MM/Assassin type hero, so you can use Assassin emblem on her but in our opinion use MM emblem and put your points like this:
- Electro Flash(+1)
Lesley has a sure crit that’s why we decided to go for additional damage rather than additional crit chance. Electro flashes so that Lesley would at least have a good quality sustain. For Assassin Emblem put your points like this:
- Bounty Hunter(+1)
In this case, you will gain an extra movement speed, penetration damage, and extra gold for killing each hero.
The only battle spell we recommend is Flicker. You can use Purify and sprint too according to your enemy team composition, but among all Flicker is the best spell to run from any situation.
Best Builds for Lesley in Mobile Legends
- Raptor Machete
- Swift Boots
- Berserker’s Fury
- Endless Battle
- Blade of Despair
Increasing attack speed and critical damage is the goal for Lesley’s build. Berserker’s Fury and Windtalker are the core items for her. Use this build when you are using MM Emblem, this build will boost your attack damage and speed.
- Swift Boots/ Warrior Boots
- Berserker’s Fury
- Scarlet Phantom
- Blade of Despair
- Endless Battle
- Malefic Roar
Pick warrior boots if your enemy carry is a physical damage based hero and malefic roar for tanky type enemy heroes. It will give you more penetration damage. So here we can clearly see that,build2 will boost your physical PEN, and it’s perfectly compatible with Assassin Emblem. You can change a few items(boot, jungle blade) according to the situation, but don’t forget to pick her Core items.
Mobile Legends Lesley Gameplay Tips
When the game start, go for the 1-2-2 rotation. We will suggest that as a MM she should go with a tank in bot lane. According to her gameplay, we can break it down in three phases. Our Lesley guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, middle, and late game in Mobile Legends.
First, take the red buff with the help of Tank before going to the lane. The red buff is very important for Lesley. Don’t try to take it alone if the enemy team invades your jungle you will be their first blood. Just reset the red buff if you can’t take it. Now, remember, if you missed the buff in this time you also missed 2 waves of minions, so you are behind in gold(to prevent this spam s1 for higher crit damage). Now try to hit the creeps with your activated passive. The last hit will increase your gold ratio. Always do basic attacks in order to fill your energy bar.
Keep your eye on minimap during this period, if the mid lane is empty or your ally saying enemy missing then don’t play aggressively at that moment. As much as possible we should be the one, harassing the one enemy hero in bot lane. Try not to lose your bot outer turret(our prior here to destroy enemy’s bot turret). Look for your passive indicator, when passive available you must do basic attack first before using your skill 1, then basic attack,skill1/skill2(if needed) then again basic attack. You will see in late-game how it affects an enemy. Take the 1st turtle after a successful gank.
Note: Remember positioning is very important for Lesley, don’t let your enemy get close to you. Use your passive to get a wider view.
In the mid-game focus on farming (time to use your jungle blade’s passive).Try to switch lanes with your offlaner after destroying the bot tower. As Lesley doesn’t just initiate any fight, don’t get caught in CC if you think you cant fight back.
As much as possible you must farm under a bush, don’t just reveal yourself to the enemy. Always back up your teammates, in this meantime, your triple critical (spamming 1st skill after each basic attack) is ready to disappear enemy carries. Use your flicker wisely. Try to save your skill 1 in mid-phase ganking cause its a great escape tool.
In the late game, it’s a tricky phase for mm like Lesley. She will use her special skill sets to kill enemies. Hide in the bush like an assassin or hide behind a tank like any other MM, when your team initiate a fight hit the enemy with this-
Basic Attack+Skill1+Basic Attack+Skill2(for avoiding gank)
Skill1+Basic Attack+Skill1/Skill3(up to 3 bullets)+Skill2(for fatal bullet purpose)+Basic Attack
Continue this method and with this skill set, you can handle any tough situation and remember whenever you ganked by the enemy then use skill 2 or else do basic attack+Skill1 time and again and ulti when necessary. Press skill1 during ultimate, bullets will deal more damage to the enemy.
Your enemy will always try to end you first, but you have to continue farming and lane pushing, so use your ultimate to avoid being ganked. First, know your enemy position then go for a fight. Remember you are very fragile can easily kill all squishy type heroes. These tips will surely help you to guide easy wins with Lesley in Mobile Legends.
Mobile Legends heroes that can counter Lesley
- If the enemy got Natalia, use your skill 1 to scout, it will revel nat’s position (just holding the skill will not reveal her)so you don’t need to waste your ultimate. In that way, you will get a lower CD for your skill.
- When you see Haya is coming for you get near to creep when haya arrives near you use your skill2 to repealed him to that creep direction. (Right timing and skill casting ability is very essential to do this)
- Auto basic attacks like Ling or auto skill target lock like Karina can not target Lesley in her camouflage mode.
- Claude’s ultimate will not work on Lesley if she activated her camouflage state.
