A new update might be around the corner in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang bringing the much-awaited Draft Pick feature to the game. Apart from the Draft Pick, a new hero ‘Yve’ is reportedly coming to the game. Interestingly, many champions will be tweaked as well with this update that are currently over-powered and over-tuned. Like always, developers at Moonton will be bringing ‘balance changes’ to the game this time around. Also, several heroes are going to get a small buff in the upcoming patch. Let’s take a look at everything this patch will be introducing to the game.

New Selection Feature – Draft Pick

Gone are the days where players pick any hero of their own choice without thinking about the team composition. With the Draft Pick feature, players can suggest their teammates’ roles before entering the hero select phase for every game. Now, each time a team enters the hero select phase, players will pick their desired roles without any clash or mix-up. This feature will surely bring a lot of dynamics to the game.

New Mage Hero – Yve

Yve, a mage hero, wields the galaxy’s power that can make use of his skills freely in her domain. Now, let’s take a look at the passive and skills of Yve:

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang – Draft Pick, New Hero Yve, and More in the Upcoming Update

Passive: Yve gains stacks of Galactic Power on dealing damage to enemy heroes with all her skills. She can make use of this Galactic power to gain an additional number of casts in her ultimate.

Skill One: Yve detonates the stored Galactic Energy in a designated area, dealing 375 (+90% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to the targets in range. However, the central area’s targets will take an extra 375 (+90% Total Magic Power) of Magic Damage.

Skill Two: Yve summons a Void Crystal in the designated area and deals 420 (+40% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to the targets it hit. Reusing it will radiate the skill for some time, and the players in range will get a slow effect.

Ultimate: Yve creates a starfield in the intended direction for 15 seconds. Surprisingly, she can cast the Ultimate a total of fifteen times. Moreover, enemies that come in contact with the starfield are slowed by 90% for 1.5 seconds. 

(However, note that the damage and the slow effect on these skills may vary when the hero gets released officially in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang)

Buffs to Heroes

Granger: The damage on his basic auto-attacks has been increased, buffing his early game.

Carmilla: Significantly increase the health regen on her first skill.

Barats: Improved the defense stats of the hero.

New Game Mode – Mayhem

The ‘Mayhem’ Game Mode is making its return to the game. As per sources, the mode will be added back to the game with the release of Yve in mid-February. 

If you want to try out the upcoming in-game mode and hero on PC with your keyboard and mouse, make sure you play Mobile Legends: Bang Bang on BlueStacks.
