Vexana has three active skills and a passive skill like most other heroes in-game. In this Mobile Legends guide, we will also talk about the skills to use in certain scenarios as well as skill combos to be able to play Vexana to her maximum potential.
Passive – Nether Touch
Vexana and the Undead Knight inflict Nether Curse on enemies hit. The curse lasts 5s and will cause the afflicted enemy to explode upon death, dealing 170-450 (+40% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to nearby enemies (base damage scales with level).
Skill 1 – Deathly Grasp
Vexana unleashes a Phantom Claw in the target direction, dealing 200/220/240/260/280/300 (+60% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to enemies in its path. The claw stops upon hitting an enemy hero, terrifying them and exposing their position for 1s. Phantom Power will then erupt at their location, dealing 120/140/160/180/200/220 (+40% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to nearby enemies and terrifying them for 1s.
Skill 2 – Cursed Blast
Vexana marks the target area with the power of the undead, slowing enemies within by 30%. After a 1s delay, a blast of Nether Energy will strike at the area, dealing 450/510/570/630/690/750 (+200% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to enemies hit.
Ultimate Skill – Eternal Guard
Vexana summons an Undead Knight at the target location, dealing 500/600/700 (+60% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to enemies hit and knocking them airborne for 0.8s. The Undead Knight then joins Vexana in the battle for 15s. It’s each attack deals 300/375/450 (+60% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to enemies in a large area.
Skill-up method for Vexana
It is advisable to first unlock and prioritize Skill 2 as it helps to easily clear minion waves while laning. Upgrade Skill 1 accordingly and prioritize ultimate whenever available.
Best Emblem set and Spells for Vexana in Mobile Legends
This Custom Mage Emblem build provides extra Magic Power as well as Magic Penetration needed to decimate enemies while on the battlefield. In the first tier, we choose Flow as it grants extra Magic Power which is needed for the early game advantage.
While in the Second Tier, choose Observation as it provides extra Magic Penetration needed to burst down heroes with high magic defensive items. Lastly in the second tier, select Magic Worship as it is the best and most ideal talent to use for a mage like Vexana. This is so since it applies a burning effect on enemies whenever at least 7% of their Hp is lost, making it quite easy when bursting down enemies with Vexana’s skills.
- Flameshot: This battle spell is useful as it provides extra magic Damage during fights. If placed well it can also be used to hit and kill fleeing dot-life enemies. It also provides a special knock-back effect which is useful especially when fleeing from enemy ganks.
- Sprint: This battle spell is useful as it helps in easily escaping or catching up with enemy hero targets. This spell can also be useful in rotating and covering lanes faster to assist teammates.
- Flicker: This skill is useful as an escape tool, especially during enemy ganks. It can also be useful to ambush and place your combos on enemy targets.
- Aegis: This Battle spell can be essential as it provides extra durability through the shield it provides.
Best Builds for Vexana in Mobile Legends
One can try many builds on Vexana. All one needs to do is to just follow the enemy’s pick and then decide the role on the battlefield. We have set out the following template to try out with Vexana on the battlefield. This Magic Damage build provides Magic Power as well as Magic Penetration needed to decimate and burst down enemies while on the battlefield.
It is advisable to go with Arcane Boots as it provides extra magic penetration when faced with tanky or high durability heroes. Next up, choose the Clock of Destiny as it provides extra HP as well as magic power needed to scale on the battlefield during the early game laning phase. Next up is the Glowing Wand which provides extra magic power as well as a unique passive that burns enemies whenever they receive damage from them thereby reducing the regenerative ability of durable enemy targets.
Build the Genius Wand as it reduces enemies’ magic defense whenever damage is dealt to them, this makes it easier to decimate high defensive enemy targets. Other equipment like Fleeting Time provides a reduction in the cooldown of Vexana’s ultimate ability whenever she gets an ability or skill, this will make it easier to spam her ultimate ability within a shorter time span. Lastly, build a Winter Truncheon to further deliver bursts of magic damage to surrounding enemy targets.
Mobile Legends Vexana Gameplay Tips
As discussed before, Vexana is one of the most lethal mages in the game after her much-needed revamp. 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 Vexana guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.
Vexana early game laning phase gameplay revolves around farming while poking enemies with the appropriate maximization of her skills and passive. Vexana really excels at clearing minion waves while using her second skill to deliver burst magic damage in a wide range.
Players must also note that the marks inflicted by Vexana’s damage from her basic attacks or skills will let enemy units detonate and deal damage upon their death, resulting in an easier way of clearing minion Waves. Also on, Unlocking Faramis First skill, use it mainly on enemy heroes or their clones to terrify them as it provides decent CC against enemy units. You can additionally perform the following skill combos to gain an upper hand on the battlefield:
Skill 2 + Skill 1
On attaining Level 4 and unlocking Vexana Ultimate, Vexana becomes much more feared on the battlefield as she can easily assassinate dot-HP enemies with her skillsets. Her ultimate is very useful as it provides decent CC against enemy targets while also serving as a source of protection against enemy heroes.
This is so since the Undead Knight from her ultimate does help to distract enemies from herself as the undead knight is quite strong and would follow or appear close to Vexana while also prioritizing enemies who attack its queen. You can form the following skill move during this situation of the game:
Skill 2 + Skill 1 + Skill 3
In the late gameplay, one must play safe as enemy burst DPS heroes might target or prioritize Vexana as her skills are very powerful and annoying. So during this laning phase, one must try to play at a safer distance which should be behind high durable heroes like tanks or fighters.
One must also learn to make use of the bush while trying to make perfect use of Vexana combo as it’s much safer from there. Last up, while trying to take or defend major objectives like Lord or your team’s main base use the Undead Knight from Vexana’s ultimate to help achieve this as he’s quite durable and powerful in completing these goals.
