Who’s excited for some sibling rivalry between these Paxley brothers?
Mobile Legends released its latest master assassin in Aamon, and many people have thrown the big question: is he better than Gusion? The Duke of Shards is an agile hero with abilities similar to his younger brother Gusion. The difference? Expect a lot of flying shards and surprise attacks from Ammon, who can turn himself invisible. In this post, we’ll hand out some tips and build suggestions to help with your Aamon’s quest for victory.
Are you #TeamAamon or #TeamGusion?
Aamon is the elder brother of Gusion and is the current head of the House Paxley. The older Paxley is seen as a nobleman by house tradition, while the fourth child in Gusion is deemed incompetent with his lowly daggers. Determined to prove his worth, Gusion practiced controlling his daggers over the years using magic. And during the coming-of-age ceremony, Gusion made a fuss where Aamon, who he’s genuinely trusted, countered by announcing Gusion’s eviction from the House.

How to win in MLBB using Aamon
Aamon has the typical basic skill setup of 3 Active Skills and 1 Passive Skill. According to his in-game details, Aamon’s specialty is Chase / Magic Damage. His passive grants extra movement speed and renders him untargetable.
Aamon Skills / Abilities
Aamon enters the Camouflage state each time he hits an enemy with a skill, during which he cannot be targeted, restores 25 (+15% Total Magic Power) plus 4% of his lost HP every 0.6 seconds, and gains 60% extra Movement Speed that rapidly decays over 4 seconds. Upon leaving the Camouflage state, Aamon immediately resets his Basic Attack’s cooldown and enhances his Basic Attack within the next 2.5 seconds. Each enhanced Basic Attack deals 100 (+100% Total Physical Attack) (+65% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage and reduces Aamon’s skill cooldowns by 0.5 seconds. The first enhanced Basic Attack’s damage is increased to 120% if Aamon leaves the Camouflage state actively.
Passive: Aamon charges his armor each time he casts a skill or hits an enemy with a skill or enhanced Basic Attack. At 5 charges, Aamon throws  shards at the target on his next attack, each shard dealing 40 (+15% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage. The shards will then scatter around the target. Active: Aamon throws a shard at a nearby enemy, dealing 150 (+60% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage.
Aamon throws a shard forward, dealing 120 (+50% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to the first non-minion enemy hit and slowing them by 50% for 2 seconds. The shard will then return to Aamon immediately. If the shard fails to hit an enemy, it will return to Aamon after a short delay and allow him to enter the Camouflage state.
