Disclaimer: As there are constant updates by the game developer on new hero releases and adjustments to their skills, the hero list below is not exhaustive, and is subject to change.
Marksmen often refer to the heroes that are able to inflict high damage on his opponents at a distance. Such class of heroes is commonly known as the carry of the team or the ADC (Attack Damage Carry). They play a critical role in killing the opposing team’s heroes. They often deal the last hit in killing the enemy hence have large potential of claiming the MVP title for the team. As the Marksmen usually have low health points and slow in their movements in the early game, they usually have to rely on Tanks to shield the opponents’ attacks. Hence, if you are using a Marksman character, do not wander off alone and make sure you are constantly with a Tank character.
The current Marksman Heroes include:
Bruno, Clint, Hanabi, Irithel, Karrie, Layla, Lesley, Miya, Moskov, Roger, Yi Sun-Shin
Assassins have high agility and are able to infiltrate the opponents’ territory and kill them swiftly with their high bursts of damage. However, as Assassins usually have low HP, it is recommended for Assassins to be played by more experienced players who are able to determine the right time to strike and avoid being marked by the Marksmen of the opponent team. Assassins are often referred to as Hunters of the team. They roam around the map freely and hunt down unsuspecting enemies with ease.
The current Assassin Heroes include:
Saber, Hayabusa, Selena, Gusion, Lesley, Helcurt, Lancelot, Lapu-lapu, Natalia, Fanny, Karina, Alucard, Zilong
Fighters are often referred to as the front-line warriors of the team. As they can only attack at close range, they will have to go close to the opponent to be able to launch their attacks, making them vulnerable to direct incoming attacks from the opponent teams. Each fighter has a unique combination of damage, mobility and durability. Beginners can opt for this class of warriors as they are considered as all-rounders which beginners will find them easier to handle and deal sufficient damage during gameplay.
The current Fighter Heroes include:
Chou, Sun, Alpha, Ruby, Jawhead, Martis, Zilong, Freya, Balmond, Argus, Hilda, Alucard, Bane, Lapu-lapu, Roger
Tanks are the durable front-line heroes that act as strong shields to protect their teammates from the enemy attacks. With their high defense and health points, opponents will find it harder to kill Tank heroes as it takes stronger attacks to deal more damage to the character. Other teammates can also count on Tanks to stun and weaken the opponents to increase their chances of getting a successful strike at them. Although they are not the leading character that will bring the team to victory, they undeniably play an important role within the team.
The current Tank Heroes include:
Tigreal, Franco, Johnson, Akai, Grock, Kaja, Uranus, Hylos, Gatotkaca, Lolita, Minotaur, Balmond, Hilda
As a magician who is able to do deal damage at a distance, Mages do not need to be in the front-line during head-on fights. This gives them the chance to take a better look at the arena and attack the opponents who are planning ambushes. Mage heroes usually have skills that allow them to attack multiple characters at once. Thus, they are excellent choices for crowd control in team fights. However, they are also popular targets of the opponent team due to their crowd control abilities and strong burst damage.
The current Mage Heroes include:
Vexana, Zhask, Odette, Kagura, Alice, Cyclops, Nana, Phasa, Eudora, Harley, Chang’e, Valir, Selena, Gusion, Karina, Gord, Aurora
Last but not least, Support Heroes, as the name suggests, support the other heroes in the team during battles. They have the ability to shield attacks or heal their teammates by either tanking the damage or sacrificing themselves to keep others in the game. Being the unsung Mobile Legends hero, Support heroes usually follows the markmen in the top or mid lane, and always ready to aid the teammates.
The current Support Heroes include:
Lolita, Estes, Rafaela, Angela, Diggie, Nana, Minotaur, Kaja
