Upcoming changes for the revamped Minsitthar in MLBB
The MLBB hero Minsitthar is one of the least viable heroes in the game. However, the developers aim to change that through his upcoming revamp, as posted on the official Twitter page of the game.
“Minsitthar is a national hero that we care about deeply. So we have decided to embark on the daunting task of a much awaited revamp,” the post captioned.
The revamped Minsitthar in MLBB shall be released on 21st March and shall feature a ton of design and gameplay changes that players can look forward to.
Minor changes were made to his character model. His armor and shield now incorporate the iconic Kanote art, a type of art that is prevalent in Burmese architecture and handicrafts.
With the revamp, Minsitthar’s Spear of Glory ability can now pull multiple enemies as opposed to the skill’s previous limitation of only one enemy. Additionally, Shield Assault now provides damage reduction, allowing him to be more tankier than before.
His ultimate ability, the King’s Calling, now disables all movement-related skills from enemies. This is very useful in suppressing overly agile heroes, especially assassins.
Aside from gameplay changes, the developers are also looking to polish the hero’s backstory on how he grew from a brave prince to a worthy king. It will be interesting to see how the revamped Minsitthar in MLBB will shake up the meta in the upcoming update.
