Martis 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 Martis to his utmost potential.
Passive – Ashura’s Wrath (Buff)
By casting a skill Martis can increase his Attack Speed, capped at 120%.
Skill 1 – Ashura Aura (CC, AoE)
CD – 7/6.6/6.2/5.8/5.4/5.0
This AoE-based skill can slow down enemies by 40% while dealing 350/410/470/530/590/650 (+130% of total physical attack) amount of physical damage.
Skill 2 – Mortal Coil (CC, AoE, Blink)
CD – 8.0/8.0/8.0/8.0/8.0/8.0
This skill is the main source of damage. It also has a continuous Crowd Control ability and can provide immunity to Martis against Crowd Controlling effects. Casting this skill to a designated direction Martis will deal 150/160/170/180/190/200 (+70% of Total Physical Attack) amount of damage while knocking them back in the same direction.
Using the 2nd phase of this skill will deal 200/220/240/260/280/300 (+150% of Total Physical Attack) amount of damage and will make targeted enemies airborne. Martis can change his direction during the casting of this skill and also become immune to any CC effects. The 2nd phase of Mortal Coil can go through thin walls too.
Ultimate – Decimation (Burst)
CD – 36/32/28
Though this Ultimate has minimal efficiency to Tank Martis, yet you can secure kills whenever needed. Martis can damage a single enemy by casting this skill and deal 650/750/850 (+100% of Total Physical Attack ) amount of physical damage. Successfully killing an enemy by this skill will grant Martis 100% extra Movement Speed and he can again cast this skill within 10 seconds. Successive killing increases Ultimate’s damage, capped at 30%.
Skill-up method for Martis
Upgrade Mortal Coil to max first and Ashura Aura accordingly. Take Decimation whenever available.

Best Builds for Martis in Mobile Legends
One can try many builds on Martis. 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 Martis on the battlefield.
Prioritize Bloodlust Axe as your 1st core item and then focus on Blade of Despair to deal a massive amount of damage in the early phase, but then focus on defense items like Oracle and Bruteforce Breastplate in order to survive on the battlefield. At last buy Malefic roar for physical penetration. After completing the build sell your boot and buy Immortality to gain an extra life in a team fight.
Fighter Martis may have a particular Item setup, but Tank Martis should build his Items according to game line-up and counter enemy Hero builds. Yet here we are providing you with our top two sets of Builds to dominate the game as Tank Martis.
Pure Tank / Initiator Build
If you have fewer fighters in your team you have to be sure to make yourself a bit more tanky and thus using this build will give you sustain to initiate fearlessly. So let’s hop into the build. Buy Warrior Boot equipped with Encourage roaming talent to buff your nearby allies’ Attack power as well as Movement Speed.
Make Dominance Ice and Brute Force Breastplate your must-buy core items. And adjust the rest of the builds according to the situation and enemy lineup. Sell Boot at the late game to buy another defense item that is suitable. Buy Radiant Armor if there are enemy heroes like Chang’e , Kimmy, etc. Buy Twilight Armor to counter critical heroes like Lesley, Clint, Aldous, etc.
Tank Build with a Blade Of Despair
In case your team has more than one durable teamfight hero like Phoveus, Esmeralda, Yu Zong, etc. we recommend you to go with this build. And even as Tank Martis, it will deal a decent amount of damage to enemies when you initiate. So let’s continue to terrorize your enemies with this Item set.
Take Blade Of Despair as another core item in this build alongside Dominance Ice and Brute Fore Breastplate. Build the rest of the items according to situations. Sell Boot at the late game to buy relevant defense items. Queen’s Wing is a high priority item for this build, it will provide a small attack boost and also a bit more defense when you will be in low health scenarios.
Mobile Legends Martis Gameplay Tips
Martis’ Hard CC skills and immunity against controlling effects make him a hero u can use efficiently whether in the early phase or in the late phase. 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 Martis guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.
As Martis doesn’t belong to the Tank genre you have to be cautious about jumping into ganks without building proper items. Try to play passively and avoid full-on teamfights at an early stage until you have your first defense item. Be sure to help your Jungler farm and prevent enemies from invading buffs.
As the Turtle has spawned by now, be sure to gank Turtle Lane. Crowd controlling enemy Core will prevent them from using Retribution properly, so utilize Martis’ skills effectively to help your Jungler securing Turtle.
Martis has not so much base HP as a tank but after completing your build you can charge fearlessly or back out effortlessly if needed, thanks to his unique skill set. Be sure to decide when to retreat and when to sacrifice yourself to protect your teammates. Giving vision by checking bush and providing protection to your teammates should be your topmost priority. Use your skills to increase attack speed and destroy enemy bases whenever have a chance.
Use Ashura Aura to get your enemies together and immediately use Mortal Coil to prevent them from escaping. Be sure to use 2nd phase of Mortal Coil to make them airborne for a long chain of CC skills.
Martis as the Reliable Initiator
Usually, Tanks have a specific set of skills that make them great Initiator and Martis has those required skills needed to become a Perfect Initiator himself. Ashura Aura can bring multiple enemies together so that your allies can burst them down to death. The continuous CC from Mortal Coil disrupts enemies from casting any skill and prevents them from escaping.
Mortal Coil can be proved as a perfect skill in various situations like preventing enemy Tank from buff invasion, canceling Johnson’s Car to protect your teammates, canceling that annoying Molina and there are many more you can discover by playing him.
Secure your Kills with Martis
When playing as a Tank, letting your Core get kills should be your priority, yet in particular situations, Martis can secure kills if needed and a successful killing by his Ultimate can help him chase down the rest of the enemies more easily. The fact to note is Martis’ ultimate, Decimation can inflict true damage to enemies when they are below 50% HP, so look out for the Death Mark at the bottom of your enemy and pierce through them.

Though Tank Martis can be proved to be effective in most cases, yet you have to decide to use it according to the enemy lineup. The long-range hero can be proved as a counter for Martis and be sure not to go with intention of getting kills as Tank Martis lacks damage. Upon properly using, Tank Martis can dominate the battlefield and become a game-changer at any moment.
An excellent pick for rank games, Martis is definitely a good pick for the current meta. These tips will surely help you to guide easy wins with Martis in Mobile Legends. You can also refer to our latest tier list to know more about the revamped meta heroes in this current season.
