Mobile Legends Valentina Guide: Best Build, Revamped Emblem, and More

Valentina is currently the most popular mage in the Mid Lane in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB). The hero’s unique ability to copy an enemy hero’s Ultimate ability is what makes her quite powerful when it comes to counterplay strategies. This is why a lot of players are looking to know Valentina’s best build and revamped emblems as well as how to play her properly. Aside from her unique playstyle, the hero’s wave clearing and roaming potential is also something to consider. Valentina can easily move around the map with her dash ability as well as swiftly clear waves to prevent the enemy from pushing turrets. Nonetheless, her overall kit allowed her to shine in the meta, especially in professional matches where counterplay is very important to win matches.

Here is a comprehensive Valentina Guide in Mobile Legends, including her best build and revamped emblems.

Valentina skills in Mobile Legends

Here is a quick look at all the abilities of Valentina in MLBB;

Passive: Primal Force

Valentina gains extra EXP each time she deals damage to an enemy hero. 

If the enemy hero’s level isn’t higher than Valentina’s, a portion of the damage dealt is converted into her HP. The EXP scales with Valentina’s level.

Skill 1: Shadow Strike

Valentina casts Shadow Strike in the target direction dealing Magic Damage to enemies hit and slowing them.

Enemy heroes hit by Shadow Strike are marked with a Shadow Sigil and will be terrified when hit by Shadow Strike again within the duration (a unit can only be terrified once within 4 seconds).

Skill 2: Arcane Shade

Valentina dashes in the target direction, firing Shadow Bolts at nearby enemies that deal Magic Damage each. Valentina can cast this skill again within a short period. The cooldown of Shadow Strike is reduced each time a Shadow Bolt hits an enemy.

Ultimate: I Am You

Valentina slows the target enemy hero and gains the ability to cast their Ultimate. Casting the enemy’s Ultimate turns Valentina into the enemy hero’s form and allows her to inherit their Basic Attack type. Her regular skills remain unchanged unless the enemy’s Ultimate has a Morph effect.

The stolen Ultimate’s level will be equal to Valentina’s level and the cooldown will be a portion of the target’s cooldown. Valentina gains Physical Attack for the duration if the enemy is a Physical Damage hero. This cannot be used on an enemy Valentina.
