So make sure to check these hero guides as well. For now, let’s focus on Mathilda.
Mathilda is a hero with the common four skill sets of one passive and three actives. In this Mathilda 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 – Ancestral Guidance (Buff, Speed Up)
Mathilda’s passive activates when she moves, when this passive indicator reaches 50 stacks then her next enhanced basic attack will deal 100 amount of magic damage to the unit. Side by side her enhanced basic attack will also increase her movement speed for 2.5 seconds by 80. You can easily understand when her passive is available; her weapon’s eagle-eye will start to glow.
Skill 1 – Soul Bloom (Burst, Buff)
CD- 7.5 Mana- 60/70/80/90/100/110
This is the main damage dealing skill for Mathilda. After activating this skill; it will gather Wisp(capped at 6) and deal magic damage to the nearby enemy unit after 3.5 seconds. Generally, it produces 1 wisp first but if you move around after triggering this skill; the no of wisp will increase, and again pressing the skill 1 will instantly release all the-wisps.
Remember one thing, hitting the same target repeatedly will reduce the damage by 30%/33%/36%/39%/42%/45%. This skill works on jungle monsters too but in front of monsters if any enemy hero appears this skill will target that hero first.
Skill 2 – Guiding Wind (Blink, Buff)
This is a dash/escape tool for Mathilda. By pressing this skill she will perform a dash in the designated direction while gaining 500/600/700/800/900/1000 amount of shield and 25% increased movement speed for the next 4 seconds.
Now the crucial part of this skill; if Mathilda uses her skill 2 in front of an ally, ally units will also receive the same amount of shield and movement speed. Not only that a small butterfly will appear on their head and they will gain a new skill for that short period. If your ally uses this skill they will be pulled towards Mathilda instantly. They will lose the dash skill if they leave Mathilda’s range for 5 seconds.
Skill 3 – Circling Eagle (CC, Blink)
By using this skill Mathilda will mark a single target and starts to circle around the marked target. During this period her wisps will rush to the nearby enemies while dealing 40/45/50 amount of magic damage to them. After 2 seconds she will knock back the target while dealing 320/360/400 amount of magic damage and stuns the target for 0.6 seconds. While Circling she is immune to all CC effects and gains 600/750/900 amount of shield. Mathilda can stun multiple targets while landing.
Note: Using skill 2 during skill 3 will grant you an extra shield.
Skill up Methods for Mathilda
Unlock skill 1 first and upgrade it to max level. Upgrade skill 2 accordingly. Ultimate whenever available.
Best Emblem Set and Spells for Mathilda in Mobile Legends
Mathilda is mostly relaying upon her magic damage as an assassin; so use the Custom Mage Emblem set and set your talent points like this. Focus on Movement speed and magical penetration to make her strong on the battlefield. Lastly use magic worship talent to deal extra burning damage after your combo.
- Agility (+3)
- Observation (+3)
- Magic Worship (+1)
Or else you can use the Custom Support Emblem too. Set your talent points like this. Agility can give you additional movement speed, Rupture will provide you more hybrid penetration, and Focusing mark will help your ally to deal more damage after you dealing damage to an enemy hero.
- Agility (+3)
- Rupture (+3)
- Focusing Mark (+1)
Basically, Flameshot is the best spell for her. She can knock back or execute dot life enemies with it. Or else you can use Execute and Ageis too; according to the situation.
Best Builds for Mathilda in Mobile Legends
Though Mathilda is an Assassin, we will tell you to use her as offensive support. First buy two core items (Glowing Wand, Necklace of durance) that will grant her magic damage. Then focus on building some defense items in order to survive on the battlefield. Lastly, wrap yourself up with an undying shield Immortality.
Or else you can try full magic damage build on her in order to wreck solo enemies. Emphasize on damage dealing items rather than defense in this scenario. Lightning Truncheon and Holy Crystal will help you to deal more damage to enemies. Winter truncheon will save you from a bad situation. Instead of that we will recommend you to mix defence items in her build like:
- Demon Shoes (720 golds)
- Glowing Wand (2200 golds)
- Necklace of Durance (2010 golds)
- Oracle (2060 golds)
- Bruteforce (1870 golds)
- Immortality (2120 golds)
Mobile Legends Mathilda Gameplay Tips
Mathilda is very deadly if she can utilize her skill 1 properly with full-stack. Do not stand in one place as movement will give you extra magic power so roam and cast your skill combo and get the best result on the battlefield. According to her gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Mathilda guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game in the game. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero.
At level 1 unlock your first skill and purchase 2 mana necklaces. Try to go in the mid lane it will help you to rotate faster in the top or bot lane. Or else you can go to the gold lane.
Clear your first wave of minions. If you are not the assassin in your team do not take blue buff. Use skill 1 to harass enemies. After unlocking skill 2 you can perform a small (skill 1+skill 2) combo.
Mathilda is very fragile so do not try to farm alone, instead of that try to help your allies to farm or wait in the bush for a successful gank. Try to cast your skill 2 in front of your ally.
Keep an eye on your passive bar and try to use the basic attack in order to move faster. You can use skill 3 as bait, then lure them to your team-knock them up-dealing extra magic damage.
Nothing much in the late phase, keep repeating the process in order to dominate the battlefield. During team fights always aim your ultimate to make sure that you hit the right target. Whenever you press skill 3 again she will land instantly so use it wisely in order to knock enemies. Use skill 2 in team fight properly and that will be a free flicker for every team member. You can perform skill combinations like these to get the best results:
Skill 3+Skill 1+Skill 1+Basic Attack+Skill 2
Heroes that can counter Mathilda
No doubt Mathilda is a very strong and team fight hero. This hero requires very little skill but can change the whole game if she knows how to cast skills properly. Use it before it gets banned in the rank tier lobby. You are immune from the CC effect it does not mean you are the initiator, try to gank enemies from behind after initiation.
