Moskov is most effective in the Gold lane, especially when paired with a reliable support. With proper support, he can farm quickly and build his key items faster

Moskov Skill Combo and Upgrade Order

To maximize Moskov’s abilities, unlock his first skill first, then his second skill, and his ultimate at level 4. Upgrade his first skill first, followed by his second skill, and his ultimate whenever possible. So, the priority order for upgrading Moskov’s skills is Skill 1, Skill 2, and Ultimate.

Best Emblem Set for Moskov

When playing Moskov in the side lane or Gold lane, it’s recommended to use either a Custom Assassin emblem or a Custom Marksman emblem, depending on your preference and playstyle. Try both and choose the one that suits you best.

Custom Marksman Emblem

While the Assassin emblem is commonly used with Moskov, the Marksman emblem is also a viable option. The Weakness Finder talent in this emblem can activate frequently and has a chance of slowing enemies’ movement speed by 90% while also decreasing their attack speed.

Custom Assassin Emblem

This provides Movement Speed and Physical Penetration, making it a valuable addition to your build. For your talent, it’s advisable to choose Killing Spree, as it not only provides movement speed but also restores some HP after eliminating an enemy.

Best Item Build for Moskov

  • There are multiple build options available for Moskov, and players can choose based on the enemy team’s picks and their role in the battlefield. Below is a suggested template for Moskov’s build that players can experiment with.
  • Swift Boots: Moskov requires attack speed to deal damage, and this item provides an extra 15% attack speed or warrior boots in the early game if facing physical damage dealers such as fighters or marksmen.
  • Windtalker: One of Moskov’s core items, it provides 40% attack speed and critical hit chances, making him a formidable force in the early game.
  • Berserker’s Fury: Another core item, this item increases Moskov’s critical hit chances, allowing him to burst down enemies with basic attacks.
  • Scarlet Phantom: This item gives attack speed and critical hit chances, making it a great addition to Moskov’s build. When combined with previously built items, Moskov can deal an insane amount of damage.
  • Wind of Nature: This is the best item to face against physical damage dealers. Its passive allows Moskov to outplay enemies by becoming immune to all physical attacks for 2 seconds and provides life steal.
  • Malefic Roar: This item is useful when enemies have high physical defense or tanky heroes, as it can lower their physical defense with high physical penetration.
  • Demon Hunter Sword: This item is the best option for countering tanks, as it can melt them down with ease.
  • The final item depends on the enemy lineup or game situation. If the enemy has high magic damage heroes, Moskov can build Athena Shield to avoid getting busted. Alternatively, Immortality
