Mobile Legends Natalia Gameplay Tips
As discussed before, Natalia is a very strong assassin capable of melting down squishy enemy targets with one or two attacks. 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 Natalia guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.
In the early game, it is advisable to roam by rotating lanes while helping deal burst down enemy targets. While playing Natalia in the Early game, there are varieties of things to do depending on the situation. If the enemy jungle is a hero who is weak during the early game laning phase or such hero depends on basic attacks for damage source, it is advisable to gank the enemy jungle provided there are no supports or tanks around.
However, if one doesn’t want to invade then one should just go to lanes to gank and ambush weak Early game laners like some mages and marksman heroes. To properly deal damage to Natalia, one must activate the stealth/concealed mode of her passive which enhances her next Basic attack. Hence, one must be moving across bushes to avoid being discovered or noticed while planning an ambush on enemy targets.
On attaining lvl 2. and after unlocking Natalia’s second skill, do note that it provides basic attack immunity which means all damage that is neither from a skill nor is it a true damage attack would affect Natalia meaning this greatly counters most marksmen during the laning phase, making it much easier to burst them down. You can additionally perform the following skill combos to gain an upper hand on the battlefield:
Enhanced Basic Attack + Skill 1 (use once) + Trigger the Concealed State + Enhanced Basic Attack + Skill 1 (use again) + Skill 2
In this game phase, Natalia begins to outshine other heroes on getting one or two damage items as she can easily melt down squishy targets with burst basic attacks thanks to her passive. But to achieve this, one must be able to avoid being detected while also prioritizing heroes who depend on basic attacks or those heroes with low mobility and also low burst capabilities as they’re the easier targets to maim and kill.
Properly conserving and using Natalia’s ultimate do help in triggering the enhanced Basic Attack of her passive as well as in triggering the mark which silences enemies whenever they’re hit by two enhanced Basic Attacks. This Crowd Control effect does help in preventing enemy targets from using skills making it a much more easy ordeal to one-shot enemy targets. You can form the following skill move on entering the Enhanced Basic Attack:
Enhanced Basic Attack + Skill 2 + Skill 1 + Skill 3 + Enhanced Basic Attack +Skill 3 (again) + Enhanced Basic Attack (again)
In this Laning game of the game, Natalia becomes a really dangerous assassin she can mark and kill squishy targets with just two hits, is even played well, she can even burst down even the tankiest of enemy heroes with few hits. So to properly excel in this gaming phase, one must mark and prioritize enemy targets while also maximizing the concealed state of her passive to clear and push lanes without being seen or caught.
