Best Emblem set and Spells for Masha in Mobile Legends
With the latest changes, Masha can be played as a tank or also a sideliner. So when playing her as a tank Custom Tank Emblem is the best option and Custom Assassin Emblem when playing her as a sideliner.
Custom Tank Emblem
Maximize the physical defense from the first and second row and Use Concussive Blast as the talent point as shown in the image.
Custom Assassin Emblem
Maximize movement speed from the first row and Physical Pen from the second row and use Killing Spree as the talent point as shown in the image.
Masha’s playstyle is very versatile now. Many pro teams in tournaments use Masha in different ways. Players are even using retribution to steal the enemy jungler’s buff and delay the enemy core’s farm. Inspire is a great option for Masha after the inspire spell buff as she relies on attack speed while playing her as a sideliner. Flicker is a good option too as she has no escape skill. Arrival is the best spell to split push turrets.
Best Builds for Masha in Mobile Legends
Many defense items have been reworked recently. Her build should be both offensive and defensive. With the new changes, she deals damage based on her HP. So building high HP items is very beneficial. She can deal damage even only with defense items. Although these are not fixed builds. Players should try them and builds should be changed according to the enemy lineup or to counter certain heroes.
One can try many builds on Masha. 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 two following templates to try out with Masha on the battlefield.
- Warrior Boots: If the enemies have more magic damage than build warrior boots and many CC skills then it’s better to get tough boots otherwise Warrior boots are useful to tank more physical damage.
- Guardian Helmet: Gives high HP and regenerates HP after leaving form a fight also regenerates while fighting by a little.
- Antique Cuirass: It’s a very good item against physical damage dealers. It reduces the enemy’s physical attack when taking damage and also stacks up to 3 times.
- Cursed Helmet: This item also gives High HP, as Masha deals damage based on her HP now, this item is very effective on her now.
- Dominance Ice: One of the must-buy items for a tank, it counters all heroes with HP regening ability or life steal and also reduces attack speed by 30%.
- Brute Force Breastplate: Physical defense stacks after casting skill and increases movement speed with stacks. This helps her to roam around faster.
- Athena’s shield: Another must-buy item for tanks to tank the burst damage from the enemy mages or magic damage dealers. It increases sustainability by a lot and also helps to stay longer in team fights.
- Twilight Armor: To reduce burst physical and Critical damage this item is very useful. When the enemy has more burst or critical damage to dealer Marksman, it will reduce their bursting ability by a lot. This is a great situational item.
Masha can kill HP enemies very fast with her attack speed. Build her as the image. Demon Hunter Sword is one of her core items. Corrosion Synth increases attack speed while slowing down enemies’ physical attack speed. Masha can deal critical damage.
So a critical damage item is a good option to burst down squishy enemies. The Revamped Guardian Helmet is very good on her. Blade Armor is to counter marksman, it reflects damage to the attacker while the damage taken is lowered by a lot.
Mobile Legends Masha Gameplay Tips
We already know that Masha can be played as a tank or as a sidelaner due to her versatility. Although she has high HP, she is still squishy in the early game and very weak to CC heroes. Her gameplay should be focused on taking down objectives and targeting the enemy backline. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero. According to her gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Masha guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.
Masha is not very popular in high-rank matches. After the latest adjustments, Masha has the highest HP. Players can use this advantage to harass the enemy laner. Masha can cut the minion wave very fast and rotate to help the team.
Wave cutting means clearing the wave before they get close to ally minions. Doing this will allow roam faster and create pressure on the enemy. Masha can win 1v1 against most of the melee fighters. So no need to be afraid to trade HP with the laner. Make sure not to stay longer in one lane while cutting the wave, else two or three enemies will be there to gank you.
Keep that in mind. Masha’s playstyle should be adjusted according to her latest skill changes. Also, she can be greatly benefited from the item changes. Masha is not very good in team fights. Use every opportunity to push the towers. Arrival is the best spell for this job.
The arrival spell can be used to push a lane with minions or defend a lane. By doing this enemies will be forced to defend their towers and your teammates will have an easier time taking down objectives with the number advantage. Masha can kill the squishy backline easily. It’s better to not initiate a teamfight on your own as a Masha player. Always try to backdoor the squishy enemies like mage or marksman.
Masha is very strong in the late game. It is very hard to kill 1v1 without good cc skills. She can burst down squishy heroes instantly while taking a good amount of damage because of her huge HP. Even tanks will have a hard time tank her damage.
Another benefit of playing her is that she can take down Lord very fast on her own while her teammates keep the enemies busy. She also can backdoor the enemy base easily if the enemies are not careful about defending their base and do not care about Masha’s split pushing ability.

Recently, the developers made some useful adjustments to her. They wanted to play her more as a tank than a Fighter or Split-pusher. With the recent changes Masha has become a very versatile hero, Masha can have the most HP in the game, even more HP than the most rock-hard tanks in the game like Hylos and Belerick. At level 1, she has the most HP.
Although she lacks team fighting ability, Masha can easily beat most of the melee heroes 1v1 in the early game. An excellent pick for rank games, Masha is definitely a good pick for the current meta.
