Phoveus, the Shadow of Dread, is a fighter who excels in crowd control with excellent mobility attributes has made its way to the Mobile Legends Advanced server with the latest 1.5.64 Patch Update. The skills and ability deal with magic damage. The hero is an effective counter for heroes specializing in Blink and Charge. The muscular appearing hero uses a chain hooked to an iron ball as a weapon. The appearance is a little frightening like Gladiator and has some amazing skins to support it. Mobile Legends have again brought a unique character Phoveus for the ever-loving MLBB fans.
Passive – Deity Intuition (Buff)
Phoveus’ weapon, Astaros, holds mysterious powers and is exceptionally sensitive to fast-moving prey. When an enemy hero uses Blink or Charge skills within 10 yards of Astaros, it reduces all of Phoveus’ skill cooldown by 1s.
Skill 1 – Malefic Terror (Shield, AoE)
Phoveus smashes the ground and unleashes Astaros Dread, dealing 500 (+100% Total magic power) Magic damage to enemies hit and reducing their movement speed by 25% for 0.8s. Stack up to 3. Astaros Dread leaves enemies who are hit by it terrified, causing its effects to spread again. If Phoveus touches it, he gains 450 (+110 % Total Magic Power) Shield for 3s. (touching it again would only reset the shield and does not stack). The skill gains 1 charge every 9.0s, up to 3 charges.
Skill 2 – Astaros Eye (CC)
Phoveus summons forth the Astaros Oculus that watches enemies, reducing the movement speed of any enemies that set foot on it by 40%.
After 1s, Astarous Oculus starts shrinking and pulling all the enemies on it into its center dealing 350 (+70% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage.
Ultimate Skill – Deity Force (Blink, Burst)
Astaros keeps a watchful gaze over an area of 10 yards of Phoveus. If it sees an enemy hero using Blink or Charge skills, it activates to cast a mark upon them for 3s.
During this time, Phoveus can instantly blink to their location to deliver a fierce blow dealing 600 (+120% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to the target and its vicinity. Once Phoveus activates this effect, the skill is available for 10s before entering cooldown.
Skill Analysis and Hero Overview
Phoveus has certainly some interesting skill set out there and would be a nightmare for Blink and Charge heroes like WanWan or Fanny. The ultimate will hugely damage and that too without missing them. There is no need to aim the joystick for attacking also. This is something that would make Phoveus the next OP in the Mobile Legends ranked games.
The other skills are effective crowd control skills and also deals some damage. They would be pretty useful during the objective phase of the game. The first skill is a continuous stack attack and can be very helpful during the late game team fights. The second skill is an effective crowd control skill which has a very wide range of effects.
Phoveus release date in Mobile Legends
Phoveus would be the 106th Hero that Mobile Legends would be launching. Only Gloo is waiting for its release on the Original server. So, we can expect Phoveus to come to the original server much sooner. Probably, the summer break event might become the go time for Mobile Legends to release him. But we have to wait for the official confirmation before spoiling it the fun.
