Skill Analysis

Valir is a regular hero who has four abilities which are one passive and three actives. His abilities are mainly crowd control with burst damage if hits the target right. In this Valir 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 – Ashing (CC, Damage)

When Valir hits a target with his skills, he will apply 1 stack of Blaze to the target and deal Magic Damage equal to 0.6% of their Max HP that lasts for 4 seconds. When the Blaze stacks to 3 times on a target, it causes an explosion that deals Magic Damage to the target equal to 6% of their Max HP and stuns the target for 1 second.

Skill 1 – Burst Fireball ( AoE, Slow)

Valir casts a fireball in a designated direction and the fireball will explode upon hitting an enemy, dealing 235 / 270 / 305 / 340 / 375 / 410 (+80% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to enemies within the explosion range and slowing them by 40% for 1 second. Meanwhile, it ignites the ground along the way, which leads to an explosion after several seconds, dealing 118 / 135 / 153 / 170 / 188 / 205 (+40% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to enemies within the area of effect. Valir gains 1 fireball every 8.5 seconds and can stack the fireball up to 2 times. Restore time for the fireball is affected by cooldown reduction. If the fireball hits an enemy hero, Valir will restore a fireball immediately.

Skill 2 – Searing Torrent (CC, AoE)

Valir unleashes a torrent of flames forward, knocking enemies back and dealing 200 / 220 / 240 / 260 / 280 / 300 (+60% Total Magic Power) points of Magic Damage to them.

Best Emblem set and Spells for Valir in Mobile Legends

Emblem Setup

To effectively play Ixia in the Gold lane, players are expected to use the Custom Mage Emblem alongside whichever Talent best suits such player’s gameplay. However, we’ve brought up some of the best Emblem/Talent Set-up that is advisable to be used for Valir:

Mobile Legends Valir Guide Emblem Setup

  • In the First Talent, we choose Agility as it provides extra movement Speed mostly useful for Early game rotation and poking enemies.
  • In the Second Tier Talent, players can pick Festival of Blood for an extra spell vamp. Since his passive skills were adjusted in recent patches, he can benefit from this talent. Recently, this talent has become very popular for Valir. Instead of this, players could also use the Bargain Hunter Talent as it reduces the price of equipment by 5%, which will help them to buy items early and start dominating.
  • In the Third Tier Talent, players can pick Impure Rage as it provides extra skill damage and restores mana on hitting enemies. Valir needs a good amount of mana in the early game, so it is good for recovering mana as well as dealing extra damage right from the start.


The Custom Marksman Emblem ever since its Revamp, provides players with access to 3 different talents. Hence, for a new Hero Ixia Emblem Setup, the following setup is expected of players. Since Valir doesn’t have any dash or blink skill, Flicker is a good spell to escape in addition to his second skill that pushes enemies to the back. It can also be used for chasing, but beware of other enemies too. Sometimes it’s not worth it to die.

Valir can have Flameshot as his skill too to create a distance when the enemy is targeting you. When the enemy is near, Flameshot to push him back, and in case, if you are still chased, use skill two. Flameshot is also useful as a magic dealer too. Generally, a skill that offers mobility is good for Valir as he needs to be at the back in team fights.

Best Builds for Valir in Mobile Legends

With the recent adjustments, Valir has become versatile and powerful. His late-game lane-clearing ability is also increased. Valir is quite a squishy hero, so it is better to build him with burn damage items and defence items like Dominance Ice or Antique Cuirass.

Core items

  • Demon Boots: Valir’s source of mana. Buying other boots will require you to buy mana regen items which isn’t very impactful to Valir.
  • Glowing Wand: Deals very high damage. With Valir’s skills and burn, it will amplify the Glowing Wand’s effect. Best to buy after boots if you are going full mage.
  • Ice Queen Wand: Further slows enemies when they get hit by skills, increasing chances to get damage and stack of ground explosion too. Other than that, the magic lifesteal helps Valir to sustain. Get this item first after boots if you are a support. After Glowing Wand if mage.

  • Necklace of Durance: If you play support Valir, this is a must-have item if enemy heroes have regen abilities. Other than cooldown and magic lifesteal, Valir’s skill is easy to hit especially nearby enemies that will get the anti-heal activated.
  • Concentrated Energy: With the new adjustments Valir can benefit from the Concentrated Energy item. It gives spell vamp, which is suited to his buffed passive. This item can help him to sustain longer in team fights.
  • Defence items: Winter Truncheon should be bought if an enemy assassin likes to target you first in team fights. Valir has very low HP so he’s easy to get killed. Other than being careful in team fights, defence items like Athena Shield and Immortality are recommended to be in team fights longer.

Mobile Legends Valir Gameplay Tips

Playing Valir might be hard at first, especially on aiming your skills to the enemy. There are some things that you need to keep an eye on, you must use passive in full potential. Let’s take a look. However, a player must need a good understanding of the map to bring the best out of any hero. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our Mobile Legends hero guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late gameplay of Valir.

Early Game

Valir deals a lot of damage early game. He can single-handedly kill an enemy with his first skill since his stun is long and slow enemy down greatly. Clear the mid lane as soon as possible then rotate to enemy blue buff with the tank to harass the enemy core by using first skill on him. His farming speed will be slowed down his team don’t give him backup.

Skill 1+ Skill 1+ Skill 1

While it’s possible to kill the early game, farming is more important as Valir works best after getting his core items. Get involved in nearby fights because if you managed to stun an enemy, it’s a guaranteed kill. It is better to rotate to the gold lane to help marksman in the early game.

Mid Game

Skill 1+ Skill 1+ ULT + Skil 2 + Skill 1 + Skill 1

Mid game is when Valir shines most which are after getting his core items. Killing enemies is easy but take note to not go anywhere alone since Valir HP is quite low. In team fights, always be at the backline and push opponents away with the second skill if they try to get to you. You are a must-have in team fights so always be with your damage dealer or fighter. After getting two core damage items it is better to get a defence item, it will make sure that you won’t be killed easily.

Late Game

If possible, never drag the game to late game. When you and your opponent are farmed, Valir can be easily killed. Two or three shots from a marksman can kill Valir and you won’t have the opportunity to even use your skills. In case you have to play the late game, it’s important to get defense items especially Immortality. The only tips when playing in the late game, Stay Behind the Tank. Heroes that have CC immunity and burst damage can eliminate Valir easily. Heroes that CC Valir also can kill Valir with ease. Lastly, heroes that can deal with damage from a long-range can get Valir out of the picture with only a few attacks.

I have a doubt about ultimate,when m pressing this 4 lil flames move around him,what are they and whts its use i can’t understand

Suchit Mohanty

The 4 lil flames that move around him are the 4 charges after he casts his ultimate. The 4 charges are used in skill 1 and skill 2 and only upto 4 times. It increases the damage and stun of s1 and s2 respectively.


The ultimate is a buff for Valir. Use the ult to escape as it can instantly remove all the debuffs. Those small 4 flames are used to show that Valir is now charged up, you better run or you’ll feel the heat. haha
