What about Defense Items?

Tanks take insane amount of damage for the team, but carries must have some form of defense against the enemy lineup as well if they wish to survive. When facing heroes with devastating damage outputs, like mages and fighters with burst abilities, being able to absorb the impact and live to fight is the key to victory. Here are the best defense items in Mobile Legends that will prepare you for the worst and help you get those wins.

6. Queen’s Wings

3. Radiant Armor

Radiant Armor heavily counters mages, which is why it’s nice for tanks and squishy heroes who are vulnerable to getting deleted by magic abilities. Radiant Armor grants magic defense and HP stats while reducing all received magic damage by 3-10 upon taking them. This can stack up to 8 times and lasts for 3s, giving heroes enough defense to survive magic bursts.

2. Antique Cuirass

Antique Cuirass is the king of all physical defense items. It’s so passive-aggressive in a way that it reduces the attacker’s physical attack by 5% when they’re attacking the hero with this item. The reduction can stack up to 4 times, making enemy physical damage cores short on power. While Antique Cuirass weakens enemies, it strengthens heroes by giving them a lot of HPs, regen, and physical defense stats.

1. Athena’s Shield

Athena’s Shield competes with Radiant Armor when it comes to the best item against mages. Why do we think Athena’s Shield is the winner? Because most mages deal heavy burst damage that can delete heroes in a flash, and Athena’s Shield denies them that. Athena’s Shield, like Radiant Armor, is excellent against short magic damage instances, though it does a lot more: it counters burst damages by reducing all magic damage taken by 25% for 5 seconds.

What makes Athena’s Shield great for defense:

  • It reduces magic damage taken by percentage, not by points
  • It’s the perfect item to counter all mages
  • It grants a lot of HP and magic defense stats
