What about Tank Items?

If you’re a tank user, there were times when you probably didn’t know what to build. There are many defensive items in Mobile Legends and they are all meant to be used depending on the situation. This article will help you identify which defensive items works best in a particular match and against a specific lineups and heroes. As a tank, knowledge on what item to purchase is critical in order to win.

10. Blade Armor

Blade Armor can be a really damn good item when most enemies deal physical damage. Not only does it give the highest physical defense but also reflect 25% of physical damage received back to its attackers. This defense item, combined with tank passive skills and other defensive gears, can be a great way for tanks to be more offensive while still doing their role’s responsibilities.

  • It’s the cheapest complete defense item you could buy
  • It counters a physical damage lineup

Blade Armor details:

  • +90 Physical Defense

9. Cursed Helmet

Cursed Helmet is the magic defense counterpart of the Blade Armor. Instead of dealing back damage to attackers, however, this defense item burns all surrounding units instead, arming tanks with a different way to become aggressive. Their difference lies in the stats; whereas Blade Armor gives physical defense, Cursed Helmet provides magic defense. The burn is dealt as magic damage, meaning this works well with tanks who use magic power.

What makes Curse Helmet great:

  • It’s the second cheapest complete defense item you could buy
  • It counters a magic damage lineup

Cursed Helmet details:

  • +1200 Health Points
  • +25 Magic Defense

8. Twilight Armor

Twilight Armor is the only physical defense item that heavily counters a burst physical attack. Because Twilight Armor puts significantly reduces the amount of physical damage it’s user will receive after reaching a point, it makes tanks last longer in team fights where they have to soak up massive blows in a single instance. This item would have definitely ranked higher if only it works in all situation, which isn’t true. There are matches and even heroes where Twilight Armor wouldn’t be as effective.

  • It negates burst physical damage including ultimates and critical hits
  • It gives a lot of HP and mana

Twilight Armor details:

  • +1200 Health Points
  • +400 Mana

7. Queen’s Wings

Queen’s Wings is the item that says: “you’re not dead until you’re dead.” Why? Because this defensive item is a lifeline. Once its user’s health falls below 40%, it grants 30% damage reduction and 40% physical lifesteal. While the last bit is unnecessary for tanks, the damage reduction is what should be the focus. Damage reduction is good against both physical and magic damage, rendering this item a viable choice in most games.

  • It makes tanks extremely durable as their health go lower
  • It can be used by fighters as well

This physical defense item increases its user’s movement speed by 6%, armor and magic resistance by 4% whenever attacking or casting skills. The broken thing is, this can stack up to 5 times! Although it’s not always a popular choice because most tanks would rather focus on aura items rather than buffs, Brute Force Breastplate remains one of the best multipurpose defense items in the game.

5. Oracle

Oracle boosts all regen and shield absorption effects by 30%, two stats that sum up many tanks. Heroes who use it receive an overall balanced defense that partly counters magic damage as well.

On top of that, Immortality is a physical defense item, too. During team fights, tanks who build Immortality can be more fearless when diving into towers or initiating because of the second life they have on the bag.

  • It prolongs the death of tanks which gives more space for allies to deal damage
  • It makes enemies hesitant to focus on tanks
