Mobile Legends: Alucard Build Guide
Alucard is one of the best hero when it comes to 1 vs 1 fight due to his outstanding damage, life steal, and sustainability. This guide can help you secure your kills using Alucard.
Outstanding Life Steal
Great enemy chaser
No crowd control skills
Not a natural team player
Pursuit – Almost no running enemies can escape from you because of this skill. Pursuit lets you quickly appear to your target when you use basic attack. The passive is available after using an active skill.
Groundsplitter – Your gap closing skill. This is the reason why ranged enemy heroes feared Alucard. By the way, you can also use Groundsplitter to escape from danger. You should max this skill first.
Whirling Smash – Alucard’s basic area of effect skill. The skills low cooldown lets you use Whirling Smash often which compliments well with Pursuit.
Fission Wave – This ultimate skill comes with multiple functions: First, activating it will increase your life steal. Second, lockdown target will receive more damage. Finally, you can cast powerful Attack Wave to finish off enemies.
Purify – Alucard’s weakness is being squishy and prone to crowd control effects. With this talent, you can fill that weakness letting you escape from crowd control effects. This makes your Alucard unstoppable during clashes.
Physical Assassin Emblem – The most suited emblem for Alucard since your role in the team is to assassinate enemies.
Haas's Claws – Because of the item’s affordable price while giving you high physical attack and excellent life steal, Tooth of Greed is the most recommended first item for Alucard. The stats complements with him really well.
Magic Shoes – Cooldown reducing shoes for your skills.
Hunter Strike – One cool thing about Alucard is it’s not mana dependent. That’s why you can take advantage of that by reducing your skills cooldown so that you can spam your skills. This item gives that, plus movement speed when you kill an enemy hero. Really works well for Alucard.
Berserker's Fury – Now let’s add some serious critical strike to multiply you damage.
Immortality – Call this item, insurance. Immortality gives your hero second life so that you have a chance to deal with un-finish business. This item will also save your Legendary status.
Blade of Depair – The most expensive item in your arsenal is also your most powerful one. This item multiplies your damage more.
Below items let’s you adapt to different situations.
Swift Boots – The boots for any attack damage carry. Use this as alternative to Magic Shoes if you prefer attack speed than cooldown reduction.
Scarlet Phantom – Best when combined with Blade of Destruction.
Malefic Roar – Use this against enemies with thick armor.
Demon Hunter Sword – Use this against enemies with high hit points.
Bloodthirsty King – This item helps you survive on heavier clashes. It makes you tanky while giving better health recovery to deal with next enemy.
Windtalker – Choose this if you prefer a boost to attack speed, movement speed, and critical strike chance. Don’t forget that this item also provides passive lightning damage.
Deadly Blade – Use this to weaken the healing regen of your enemies.
How to play Alucard?
The first thing you should learn when playing Alucard is his basic combo.
Groundsplitter -> Basic Attack -> Whirling Smash -> Basic Attack -> Fission Wave -> Basic Attack -> Fission Wave (Attack Wave) -> Basic Attack... Then use any available skills that is not on cooldown. Most non-tank enemies are dead using this combo.
If you need to survive from heavy damage or you think that burst won’t be enough to take the enemy down, alter the combo like this:
Fission Wave -> Basic Attack -> Groundsplitter -> Basic Attack -> Whirling Smash -> Basic Attack -> Basic Attack... -> Fission Wave (Attack Wave) -> Basic Attack... You will be using basic attack a lot while in Fission Wave mode. Release Attack Wave as finishing move or before Fission Wave expires.
Now that you know the basic combo, keep in mind that it is your responsibility to visit lanes often and ambush enemies.
Always farm in the jungle whether in your base or in enemy territory. Doing it will also give you opportunity to encounter exhausted enemy heroes. When you do, kill it obviously using your basic combo. If your Alucard is well fed, you can also chase and take down multiple enemies effectively thanks to his Pursuit skill.
During team clash, wait for your team’s tank to engage or for your other team mates to cast their crowd control skills before attacking. Engage the nearest marksman or spell caster first using Groundsplitter. The key here is to avoid being noticed by your enemies as much as possible by keeping them busy.
There are times when you cannot play well with your team mates. Your best bet to win the game is by concentrating on pushing lanes while your enemies are busy doing something else. You can simply sneak and destroy tower immediately with your heavy damage.
