Mobile Legends Thamuz Gameplay Tips
Thamuz is a sustained hero, who can be used as a proper fighter as well as a ganker. You can play him as a fighter by 1-2-2 rotation. While picking Thamuz; you need to know that he can clear the minion’s wave and the jungle creeps fast so you have to decide its build according to the enemy team and choose your battle spell wisely. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends Thamuz 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.
As a fighter, you have to go to the Exp lane and hold it as well as push it; until your carry gets his core items to get kills. You can cut the lane or take the enemy red buff depending on where your enemies are(if the enemy is doing 1-2-2 that means they started on red buff). Do not leave your lane wide open for enemy pushing. Buy your boot according to the enemy damage dealer. Additionally, you can perform skill combos to get an early upper hand like-
Skill 1+ Skill 1+ Skill 2+ Skill 1
At this phase, Thamuz shines most as it got his core items. Help your carry to get the turtle buff and do a quick rotation to the mid lane with your team. Try to hide in the bush to gank the enemy damage dealer and for a successful leap. But do not forget to push lanes, cause pushing lanes are more important than killing a hero.
Pushing turrets gives pressure to enemies to focus on your lane more rather than your team’s carry. You can use Thamuz’s jump 3 times to burst the enemies faster. Build a Bloodlust Axe as your first item to gain spell vamp. Perform specific skill combos to get the best out of Thamuz like-
Skill 1+Skill 2+Basic Attack+Basic Attack+Skill 1+Basic Attack
Use your second skill wisely in a team fight cause it is the only way of getting your skill 1 when it gets far. If you can not get Thamuz’s first skill, his passive will also be useless. Once you build your main lifesteal item do not hesitate to gank multiple enemies.
Your ultimate will fill your HP bar during a team fight. Try to lure the enemies towards your team then. Activate your ultimate and repeat the jump attack strategy in the following manner-
Skill 1+Skill 2+Basic Attack+Basic Attack+Skill 4+Skill 1+Basic Attack
There is no specific hero counter to Thamuz. The way to counter him is to decrease his HP Regen Capability by building Anti-HP Regen Items like Necklace of Durance. As a Thamuz player, you need to increase your attack power in order to increase your physical lifesteal and focus on turret pushing cause
Thamuz does not scale well into the late game, so early and mid-game is your main area. He can not solo carry and team up as a trio will higher Thamuz’s ganking ratio. Furthermore, you can team him up with Tigreal and Atlas as Thamuz forms strong combos with them. These tips will surely help you to guide easy wins with Thamuz in Mobile Legends.
