So make sure to check these hero guides as well. For now, let’s focus on Uranus.
Uranus is a hero with the common four skill sets of one passive and three actives. In this Uranus guide, let’s see what are his abilities in Mobile Legends, and when you can use which skill to get the best out of him.
Passive – Radiance
Uranus gains a stack of Radiance on every time when he takes damage, capped at 20 stacks. He regenerates HP for each stack for 10 seconds and will reset if he doesn’t receive any damage within that 10 seconds.
This passive is very important to keep Uranus alive. Usually, he will be in the front line to receive damage to keep the stacks going. Minion, jungle monster, and tower damage also will make Uranus gains a stack so keep the damage coming and stacks full. Enter a team fight only when the stacks are full or else Uranus will not stay long in team fights.
Skill 1 – Ionic Edge
Uranus deals with magic damage to reduce physical and magic power. He slows the enemies around him that are hit with the two orbiting spheres. In addition to that, enemies that are hit with this skill will receive 40% more damage the next time they are hit with this skill again up to four times.
This is the main damage skill of Uranus. Low cooldown is vital for Uranus to keep being able to use this skill in order to deal more damage to enemies. It is rare to fight with an opponent that will last to four stacks because they will run due to low HP so use the skill whenever you can in a fight.
Skill 2 – Transcendent Ward
Uranus charges towards a location, dealing magic damage to the targeted location, and slowing the enemies there. He will also gain a shield, and deal magic damage to enemies surrounding him after 4 seconds. He can only do this though when the shield is depleted.
This skill is Uranus chasing and escaping skills. The cooldown for this skill is long, so use it wisely which is to enter a team fight, or retreat when health is low. Timing for the shield to explode should be properly estimated to deal damage and slow enemies at the right moment. Usually, this skill comes in using the turret dive because the damage from the tower will make the shield explode almost immediately.
Skill 3 – Consecration
Uranus debuffs any slowing effects, and increase movement speed when using this ultimate. Other than that, he will gain Radiance stacks and got his regen effect enhanced. This skill can be used to chase dying enemies, escape, or get a boost of HP regen when you are dying. Also, this skill can be used to gain and maintain stacks, such as when rotating to another lane or when the stack is about to reset.
Best Emblem Set and Spells for Uranus
Uranus is a very versatile hero, and a lot of emblems suits him. The best might be Tank Emblem with Concussive Blast Talent because it deals damage to enemies surrounding Uranus, or Tenacity Talent to increase his defense when HP is low. Other than that, Support Emblem with Avarice Talent enables him to get items earlier. And in addition to the movement speed and hybrid, regeneration helps him a lot throughout the game.
There are a number of spells that are suitable for Uranus and all are equally good for using. Some suggestions are in using Vengeance to receive less damage and return the damage to the opponent. Purify enables Uranus to use his 2nd skill and Ultimate at critical times. Execute helps to deal with the finishing blow as Uranus damage isn’t burst type. Even Flameshot can be used for pushing as CC and to inflict damage on enemies. Use the best spell depending on your playstyle.
Best Builds for Uranus in Mobile Legends
Uranus can go full mage, full tank, or hybrid build. Full mage increases his damage but sacrifices his tankiness, full tank build will have Uranus depending on teammates a lot, and hybrid might be best for him for solo players.
Hybrid build core items consist of Tough Boots or Warrior Boots depending on your enemy has more magic hero or physical heroes for the early game defense. Enchanted Talisman for mana and cooldown plus giving him more damage. Oracle for enhanced regen effect, HP, and magic defense. Other recommended items for this build are Immortality, Bruteforce Breastplate, Antique Cuirass, or Athena Shield.
Full Tank Build
Full tank build will make him buy Demon Boots for mana, Dominance Ice for slowing effect, Oracle for enhanced regen effect, Courage Mask for cooldown and boost, Bruteforce Breastplate for extra tackiness for magic and physical damage, Guardian Helmet or Immortality for the extra defense or regen.
If the enemy has more magic damage dealer, replace Guardian Helmet with Athena Shield. Uranus can hold for a long time with the build as he got more defense, but very dependant on carrying because his damage is almost insignificant.
Full Mage Build
For full mage build, Uranus will have to depend on magic lifesteal to keep his HP up. It’s very rare to see anyone to use this build because Uranus will be weak early game, but should be invincible in the late game and played safe in the early game. Personally we would recommend this build only when you have enough trust in your teammates because it is very dependent on the support and tanks as his main duty is to deal with the damage.
Mobile Legends Uranus Gameplay Tips
Even though Uranus 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 Uranus. Our Uranus guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game in Mobile Legends.
Despite being a tank class hero, his defense is one of the lowest of all heroes at the first level in-game. Uranus is squishy without his core items due to insignificant regen from his passive. Retreat if facing two or more enemies and proceed with caution when facing one enemy. A smart Uranus knows how to engage and retreat.
After getting his core items, engaging in team fights should not be a problem for Uranus. However, never initiate a team fight as he can be CC-ed and dies easily if got targeted first.
He can deal a good amount of damage over time after getting Enchanted Talisman because his cooldown is lower and don’t have to worry about mana so be active in clearing waves and participate in team fights
Uranus is a very good bait to catch enemies off guard. With all his items, he can survive anything however be mindful of enemy marksman that deals high damage over time especially in the late game. In team fights, don’t be afraid to invade the backline by skill 2 and chase the marksman and mage to get their position in a mess. Your teammates should be able to help after dealing with tanks and fighters.

Generally, Uranus is good against heroes that deal damage over time means that he can regenerate more HP while getting attacked. It’s also almost impossible to kill Uranus with a single combo. His weakness is anti-heal, burst damage, and CC. If he’s hit with a CC skill, he can’t do much to save himself.
While being a popular pick in ranked games, it takes a lot of practice to master Uranus as playing him requires good instinct and timing. The right items and gameplay can increase his carry potential, or overconfidence can bring your whole team down. Always be smart when playing Uranus, and never ever overextend.
