Odette the Swan Princess is a mage class hero in Mobile Legends that’s always feared for her large AoE burst and annoying poke. Personally, we think Odette is a bit tricky to use since her performance highly depends on teammates’ and opponents’ lineup. Despite not always picked in ranked matches, Odette performs when played right. In this guide, we’ll take a look at how we can maximize the capability of Odette to the fullest with the recommended spell, emblem, items, and gameplay in Mobile Legends.
We have previously discussed how to master playing with other Mobile Legends heroes like Ling, Wanwan, Pharsa, Carmilla, Silvanna, Hayabusa, Atlas, Luo Yi, Yu Zhong, Aurora, Khaleed, Freya, Khufra, X.Borg, Lesley, Tigreal, Valir, Cecilion, Lylia, Uranus, Barats. So make sure to check these hero guides as well. For now, let’s focus on Odette.
Odette is a hero with the common four skill sets of one passive and three actives. In this Odette 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 – Lakeshore Ambience
Every time Odette uses a skill, she will gain a stack to release magic damage that bounces to enemies around the target when giving a basic attack. It can stack for a maximum of three stacks. This passive works well to poke enemies without her being close, and can finish low HP opponent if lucky.
Even when the minion is targeted for the basic attack, the magic energy will prioritize to bounce to heroes within the range first. It doesn’t bounce to the tower, but attacking tower will still release the bouncing energy to nearby enemies so make sure you attack the tower first to deal more damage. The best thing about the passive is that it will bounce to invisible enemies in the bush too!
Skill 1 – Avian Authority
This skill deals quite a damage to enemies so make sure it hits. Before casting ultimate, cast this skill first to slow enemies so they’ll stay longer in the ultimate area. Despite the short range of this skill, follow up with a basic attack to deal damage to enemies. Use this skill to clear minion waves fast.
Skill 2 – Blue Nova
Her second skill is her only CC skill and the duration is quite long which is 2 seconds. However, remember that she immobilizes opponent heroes so they can skill cast spells at you. It’s hard to land this skill on enemies so make sure your positioning is ok and clear from enemy minions. Aim it at an angle to reach further distance than aiming it straight to the enemy.
Skill 3 – Swan Song
Her ultimate is very scary burst damage with large AoE but Odette cannot move and can be interrupted by CC. She receives half damage during her ultimate so magic lifesteal is very important to keep her alive during the ultimate period. Before casting her ultimate, cast her second and first skill first because, in the AoE area, the bouncing time and frequency of her passive will increase.
Best Emblem Set and Spells for Odette
For Odette, Mage emblem with Impure Rage Talent works best to deal with high damage and support her mana usage. Or you can go with mage emblem with Mystery Shop talent will help to get her items faster so she can deal more damage and survive longer in team fights. Other than that, because she deals with continuous damage with her ultimate, mage emblem with Magic Worship talent works too, to deal more damage to enemies. Allocate points to movement speed and magic lifesteal for the emblems. However, if you want to read an in-depth emblem guide, check here.
Since Odette’s ultimate is very important in fights, spells are used to support the ultimate. When Odette uses spell while performing her ultimate, her ultimate won’t be canceled. Flicker is a famous choice of spell to change Odette’s position in team fights to maximize the coverage area when the enemy is moving. Purify is also often picked for CC immunity so that her ultimate won’t be canceled but it’s hard to execute because timing is vital when using Purify hence very few players use Purify as a spell.
Best Builds for Odette in Mobile Legends
Demon Boots: This boot is usually picked to sustain Odette mana usage. Go for Arcane boots if you use the Impure Rage talent emblem for magic penetration but expect to return to base occasionally to refill your mana. If Arcane boots are your choice, buy a magic necklace early game and sell it later.
Glowing Wand: Deals extra burn damage to enemies. Since Odette’s passive will hit a lot of targets, this will increase her damage over time.
Concentrated Energy: Magic lifesteal is very important to Odette because she is susceptible to damage when using her ulti. This item can regen her HP when her passive bounces too so with this item, she won’t need to return to base to heal.
Ice Queen Wand: I like building this item on Odette for its magic lifesteal ability that regenerates a large amount of HP when she is using her ultimate. In addition, the slow will make enemies stay in her ultimate area longer, and also affects her passive.
Holy Crystal: Gives a massive boost to her magic damage, best to get after Glowing Wand and before Ice Queen Wand to get the damage to catch up if your team is falling behind.
Lightning Truncheon: Enhances Odette burst capability, and gives 10% cooldown. Fleeting Time can also replace Lightning Truncheon if you like casting spells more frequently.
Necklace of Durance: If facing enemies that regenerates fast, Odette is the best candidate to buy Necklace of Durance because her large AoE and poking passive will make sure all enemies got hit by the anti heal effect. The item also grants lifesteal and cooldown that’s also important to Odette.
Winter Truncheon: If you found her dying too fast in team fights, you might want to buy this item so that enemies use all their CC skills first before you perform Odette’s ultimate.
Mobile Legends Odette Gameplay Tips
Even though Odette looks invincible, there are some aspects that should be taken into consideration to reach that moment. When it comes to gameplay, we can break it down in three phases for Odette. Our Odette guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game in Mobile Legends. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero.
Odette is a very squishy hero so it’s important to play her save before getting Concentrated Energy. Clear waves with her first skill fast and help with teammates to the jungle or steal buffs since her bouncing passive damage enemies quite a lot even in the early game. Don’t go alone or overextend because she’s very easy to get killed in the early game.
After getting her core items, be active to participate in team fights. Her damage will melt enemies HP real fast and helps your teammates to finish them off easily. Just keep an eye on opponents with CC because a failed ultimate also means that you will die first. Enter team fights a little bit later to bait all the CC first or do it further a bit from the team fight the flicker to escaping enemies.
Without her teammates support, Odette is nothing in the late game. Make sure to stay as far as you can during the initiation of team fights, and poke enemies as much as you can from far. Most marksman can two shots Odette to death late game so be very cautious when advancing in team fights. Don’t make yourself a target to enemies.
|Heroes Odette can counter||Heroes that can counter Odette|
Odette can pretty much kill any squishy heroes in a short time. She is a great counter to heroes that is squishy and don’t have any CC skills. Disrupting the enemy’s farming phase also is Odette’s forte. We have been able to shut Aldous and Hayabusa farming by poking them with her passive quite a number of times.
Odette is extremely weak against heroes that have target CC skills or CC skills in general. A small stun can end her ultimate and render her useless. Even a flameshot can cancel her ultimate so keep an eye on the enemy’s spell.
Odette is not the best mage out there, but definitely very useful against some lineup along with the right teammates. The most important note to bear in mind while using this hero is to play very safe in the early game and keep an eye on CC skills from the enemy. One wrong judgment can cost a team fight. If you follow the tips shared in this guide, you can play decently well in ranked games.
