Skill Analysis

Yin has three active skills and a passive skill like all the 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 Yin to his utmost potential.

Passive – Leave It to Me (Buff)

passive yin

The absence of any allied hero within 4 yards will increase Yin’s damage up to 120%, thus making him a true offlaner.

Skill 1 – Charged Punch (Burst, Speed up)

CD – 11.0/10.4/9.8/9.2/8.6/8.0

skill 1 yin

Upon casting Yin’s first skill Yin can get 60% extra movement speed which will be decayed in the next 3 seconds and he also launches an enhanced basic attack that deals 25/40/55/70/85/100 (+100% total physical attack) amount of physical damage. A successful hit will allow Yin to put a second punch automatically which deals 320/360/400/440/480/520(+200% extra physical attack) physical damage to a line of enemies and also will reduce this skill’s CD by 35%.

Buffed Skill 1 (Lieh) – Frenzy Strike (Burst)

CD – 22/20.8/19.6/18.4/17.2/16.0

skill 1 lieh yin

Lieh smashes an area ahead of him up to 10 times, each smash dealing 112/126/140/154/168/182(+120% extra physical attack) amount of physical damage to enemies and slowing them down by 75% for a short amount of time.
Lieh is immune to control effect while casting this skill (like Badang’s immunity to CC when he is using Ult.), this skill can be get canceled if Lieh moves or cast other skills during this time.

CD – 13/12.4/11.8/11.2/10.6/10.0

skill 2 yin

Yin can use this skill to dash forward while dealing 75/90/105/120/135/150(+35% extra physical attack) and also can get 30% extra damage reduction for successfully hitting an enemy. In this process of dashing forward, Yin also leaves his golden ring behind which returns to him after 4 seconds and deals 150/180/210/240/270/300(+70% extra physical attack) amount of physical damage to enemies in its path and also stun them for a short amount of time.

CD – 13.0/12.4/11.8/11.2/10.6/10.0

skill 2 lieh yin

Yin can use this skill to dash forward while dealing 75/90/105/120/135/150 (+35% extra physical attack) and also can get 30% extra damage reduction for a successful hit.

Remember while dashing forward a successful hit will also knock back the enemy.

Ultimate Skill – My Turn (CC, Buff)

CD – 60/55/50

ultimate yin

Activating his ultimate Yin can turn into Lieh and cast a special domain that can trap one of his targeted enemies together with him. Equipped with an extra 20/40/60 physical defense as well as magic defense Lieh also boost Yin’s both Skill 1 and Skill 2. On Lieh or the trapped enemy being killed, the domain will end instantly. Killing his enemy in the domain will restore Lieh’s 20% max HP and also, he will leave the domain as this Lieh form resetting Frenzy strike an instant blast’s CD. Out of the domain, this Lieh form will last up to 8 seconds.

Skill-up method for Yin

Unlock Skill 1 first and upgrade it to max level and then upgrade Skill 2 accordingly. Upgrade your Ultimate skill whenever available.

Best Emblem set and Spells for Yin in Mobile Legends

Emblem Setup

Choose Custom Assassin Emblem Set and set your talent points like this. Agility will provide you with extra movement speed to chase down the enemies. The Invasion will boost your physical Pen which will enhance your skill 2 power. Choose High and Dry (7% increased damage on the single nearby enemy) or Killing Spree (12% HP restores and 15% increased movement speed after slaying an enemy) as your final point according to the situation. Both are good for Yin.

Battle Spells

Flicker is the best spell for him. He can surprise enemies with his ultimate by using Flicker. He can also use Execute depending upon the situation. Yin is a completely skill-based hero with lots of damage so in some cases Yin can also play Jungler role and in order to play, he should take Retribution.

Mobile Legends Yin Gameplay Tips

As discussed earlier Yin is equipped with hard cc, 1v1 ultimate, and AoE-based attack damage skills. He is a hero first of his kind that can truly 1v1 his enemies, thanks to his special Ultimate. 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 Yin guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.

Early Game

As a fighter/offlaner, head towards the top/Exp lane, clear the first minion wave between turrets. Then at 0.45 sec take the small gold crab. Until Yin’s second skill unlocks do not initiate unnecessary, better stays near turret and clear minions.

yin gameplay Mobile Legends Yin Guide
Yin on the MLBB battlefield

Prioritize War Axe after buying boots (250 golds) and try to mark enemies with skill 2 to stun them for a short time. Try to cast your skill 1 on the opponent rather than minions to deal extra damage to the enemy.

Mid Game

This is the main phase for Yin. Always spam Yin’s skill 2 with your Basic attack. Watch out Exp lane’s pit when the turtle spawns, do not leave your lane wide open but if needed do a quick rotation to the pit and help teams carry to secure Turtle Buff. As an Offlaner Yin’s main duty is to push the turret but do not hesitate to take the fight if needed, no matter if 5 enemies are there; Yin will always end up in 1v1 scenarios. You can perform the following skill combos to gain an upper hand on the battlefield.

Skill 1 + Skill 2 + Basic Attack + Skill 3

Late Game

Yin’s weakness is getting Crowd Controlled by enemies. So try to play safely in this late phase. His Skill 2 helps him to escape or do a sudden attack on enemies, so spam it on the enemy properly with skill 1. Try to cast your ultimate on enemies ADR first, once the enemy got caught by domain expansion, cast buffed skill 1 properly that the enemy took maximum damage and then cast skill 2 to stun the enemy.

If Yin can cast his combo properly in the domain, then he will kill the enemy easily with his skill set and exits as Lieh to gain an advantage on the battlefield.

Final Thoughts

Nicely written but I think the combo should be
Skill2(yin)+ Ultimate+ skill 2(lieh)+ Skill1
I too think the fighter emblem is useless for yin. As with fighter emblem, early game with yin becomes difficult.

Abhijit

Yes i did not recommended the fighter emblem, killing spree will surely help and combos? Yes combos can be changed according the battlefield situation but you still can use above mentioned combo to 1V1 enemy

JasonTzy.

This is the build for yin I recommend 1. Warrior Boots or Tough Boots 2. War Axe or Hunter Strike 3. Blade of Despair 4. Malefic Roar 5. Athena Shield or Antique Armour 6. Immortality First of all pick Tough Boots if most of the enemies mage or magic dealers. And pick Warrior Boots if most of enemies Physical Attackers Pick War Axe if you always clash. But I recommend Hunter Strike if your a Jungler because most of the time War Axe don’t reach full stack and you just probably waste a slot Blade of Despair because if you… Read more »

The items u mentioned it is already written in the guide, not only that u can not always stick to one build. It always changed upon the enemy pick and the battlefield situation, but moreover some core items remain same due to get yin’s upmost power.
