Mobile Legends Melissa

Melissa’s Skills / Abilities

Doll Buster
Melissa’s skills and basic attacks deal extra 50% damage to minions and Summoned units.

Type: Blink

Melissa’s dash skill and attack speed will increase by 75% for 3s. You can use skill 1 to adjust the positions of your skill 2 and skill 3.

Eyes on You

Type: Physical Skill

Melissa throws Muddles on the ground, and it lasts for 6s. After hitting a target reaching max distance, this skill lands on the ground and damages nearby targets.

There are 2 circled areas around Muddles. When an enemy hero steps into the smaller circle, they will get linked to Muddles. The Enemy will have to leave the bigger circle to break the link.

The link will slow down the Enemy by 60% for 1.5s.

If you attack a linked target, Muddles will deal the same damage to all linked targets.

If the Enemy is out of your basic attack range, you can attack Muddles to deal damage to linked enemies. When Muddles attack a target, it will reduce skill 1’s cooldown by 1.2s.

The linked effect only works on Enemy heroes, and it doesn’t work on minions/monsters.

Go Away

Type: Magic Skill

Melissa will create a field around her last 4s. If there are foes nearby, Melissa will use this skill to deal magic damage and push them out of the field.

When this field is active, it will push back and deal damage to enemies trying to enter the field.

Heroes with CC immunity skills can get through this shield. If Melissa leaves the field, it will disappear.

When Melissa’s ultimate is not on CD, she will gain an extra +5 Physical & Magical Defense.
