Mobile Legends Patch 1.6.90 Update: Hero adjustments, Talent System changes and more

Lots of incoming changes in the Server!

A lot of changes have been made to the heroes of Mobile Legends with the Patch 1.6.90 Update, with a lot of changes to the new Talent System, which had been introduced a few patches before. Talent System data has been removed and reset, whereas Talent Essence which has been recently obtained, has been kept. The level of Emblems, as well as the number of Emblem Fragments and Magic Dust in the inventory, determine how many Talent Essence one will obtain.

The visuals, values, and related functions of the Talent system will be optimized further in later patches. The changes will be first applied to the Advanced Server and the optimized version will be deployed to the Original Server. Let us explore the current Patch in detail.

Mobile Legends Patch 1.6.90 Update: Hero adjustments

Nana (Nerfed)

Developers are now concentrating on Nana’s Skill 2, as they do not want to be able to entirely force the player out of the lane. Its prior mechanics will be preserved and the hit rate improved.

Skill 1 (↓)

  • Base Damage: 300-500 >> 250-450
  • The flying speed has been reverted to that of the Official Server version.

Skill 2 (~)

  • Standby Duration: 5s >> 30s
  • New Effect: Molina will disappear shortly after it’s exposed to the enemy’s vision.

Only one Molina can exist at the same time.

Revamped Faramis (Adjusted)

The Faramis’ damage spikes have been smoothed out, and his soul fragments have been tweaked.

Passive (~)

  • The absorption distance of the soul fragments was reduced.
  • The absorption distance is increased during Faramis’s Skill 1 and Ultimate.

Skill 2 (~)

  • Skill damage is increased where there’s only one target.
  • The subsequent split damage has been reduced.

Ultimate (~)

  • New Effect: Faramis gains soul fragments when allied heroes receive the Ultimate’s effects.
  • An issue was fixed where the hero could still move. Basic Attacks had been cast when the extra HP is depleted.

Revamped Vexana (Nerfed)

The Duchess of Necrokeep could use another round of nerfs before her official debut.

Passive (↓)

Damage Bonus: 50% Magic Power >> 40% Magic Power

Skill 2 (↓)

The slow effect has been removed.

Ultimate (↓)

  • Cooldown: 60-50s >> 60s at all levels
  • Undead Knight’s Extra HP: 1500-4500 >> 1500-3500
  • Undead Knight’s Extra Magic Defense: 50-100 >> 0 (applied in the previous version, now magic attacks will pose a higher threat to the Undead Knight)

Natan (Buffed)

The previous buff to the Reverse-Clone wasn’t as effective as we’d expected, so here’s the round two.

Early game damage has been increased.

Attribute (↑)

Paquito (Buffed)

Burst damage has been increased.

Ling (Nerfed)

Ling’s increased critical power has made him a dangerous menace to low-HP targets.  To give the victims a chance to flee, we’re reducing his damage.

Skill 2 (↓)

Damage: 300-400 + 40% Physical Attack >> 250-350 + 33% Physical Attack

When the Tank/Support can easily score kills without assistance, players will notice something is wrong. The Ultimate’s severe nerfs could be the solution.

Ultimate (↓)

  • Cooldown: 45-37s >> 50-42 s
  • Base Damage: 180-540 >> 180-420

Cooldown: 7-5s >> 8-6s

Ultimate (↓)

Cooldown: 31-28s >> 44-36

Equipment changes

Bloody Retribution (Buffed)

Athena’s Shield has consistently been a top pick at all levels of play. Its effects are being nerfed by developers to make it in line with the other defensive alternatives.

Duration: 5s >> 3s
