This page contains patch notes released on the Official Server. For patch notes released on the Advanced Server, see Patch Notes 1.6.42 (Advanced Server).

An update for Mobile Legends: Bang Bang has been released on the Original Server for the month of December, year 2021. This includes the new hero Edith Edith, along with adjustments, battlefield changes and in-game events.

The update was released on 23 December 2021, 19:00 server time. It was intended to be released on 20 December, but it was postponed according to the developers to fix "an issue that would seriously affect [players'] in-match experience."[1]

From The Designers

In this patch, we're bringing lots of battlefield adjustments to make the battlefield events more clear-cut and boost Lord's presence in the very late game (after 18 min). You'll also be able to view the current battlefield mechanics in the revamped Battlefield Overview.

In addition, we're optimizing some of the less popular heroes, emblem talents, and battle spells. Hero balance adjustments based on the M3 World Championship will also be hitting the Official Server in later patches.

Wish you all have fun in the new version!

Magic Chess

Some newly released Little Commanders have been dominating the field lately. To keep them around the balance line, we'll be rolling out a series of balance adjustments to our previous Little Commanders starting from this patch.

I. New Hero

New Hero: Forsaken Warden - Edith

Edith, the primal warden that watched over the sealed Evil Gods on Sanctum Island, will be available soon.

Passive - Overload.png Overload

  • After each skill cast, Edith's Basic Attacks within a period of time will trigger chain lightning that deals damage to multiple enemies.

Skill 1 - Earth Shatter.png Earth Shatter

  • After a short delay, Edith controls Phylax to launch an earth-shattering blow in a designated direction, dealing damage to enemies hit and knocking them airborne.

Skill 1 (Flight) - Divine Retribution.png Divine Retribution

  • Edith exacts Divine Retribution on a designated area, dealing damage to enemies hit and slowing them.

Skill 2 - Onward.png Onward

  • Edith controls Phylax to charge in a designated direction, dealing damage to enemies along the way. If Phylax hits an enemy hero during this process, it'll stop immediately and throw them over its shoulder.

Skill 2 (Flight) - Lightning Bolt.png Lightning Bolt

  • Edith fires a Lightning Bolt in a designated direction and immobilizes the first enemy hero hit.

Ultimate - Primal Wrath.png Primal Wrath

  • Edith ejects herself from Phylax, gaining a shield. She then dashes forward and takes flight, after which she can perform ranged Basic Attacks and gains new non-ultimate skills

The Celestial Palace that had floated high up in the sky for millennia crumbled after Gusion stole the Heart of Anima. Meanwhile, a mysterious island from the very depths of the Sea of Hope began to reveal itself from the blanket of fog… Sanctum Island is soon coming to the Land of Dawn!

  • From now on, the old map, Celestial Palace, is no longer available.
  • New map, Sanctum Island, will be available soon.
  • Sanctum Island features a brand-new scene design, new creeps, and more exquisite graphics. We hope you'll like it!
  • Purple Buff camp adjusted. Now, when the Purple Buff camp is cleared, a path will appear behind the creeps and last until they respawn.

Battlefield Events

2 Minutes
  1. First Turtle Spawn: Time unchanged. Turtle Buff: Besides the killer, other allied heroes will also receive a one-time shield, while the shield value is reduced.

5 Minutes
  1. Removal of Outer Turrets' Shields: Time unchanged.

8 Minutes
  1. First Lord Spawn: 9 min → 8 min. Respawn Timer: 4 min → 3 min. We slightly increased the Summoned Lord's attributes but reduced the minions' attribute boost after slaying Lord. This adjustment will slightly accelerate the game pace but reduce the opposing team's pressure to defend other lines.

18 Minutes
  1. New Mechanic: Lord will evolve at 18 min, gaining the following abilities:Ability 1: Neutral Lord has 40%-15% Damage Reduction by default, which decreases when there are more heroes around (5% for each hero within 5 yards, reaches the minimum when there are 5 heroes around).Ability 2: Summoned Lord grants nearby allied heroes a buff effect: Attack against enemy heroes deals extra Magic Damage. Cooldown: 2s. (Similar to Orange Buff). This effect will disappear once the hero leaves Lord's vicinity. Ability 3: Summoned Lord gains 5% Damage Reduction for each allied hero within 5 yards (up to 25%)
  2. Death Timer Increase: 15 min → 18 min. This adjustment will reduce the death timer between 15-18 min.
  3. New Mechanic: After 18 min, heroes will gain a higher Movement Speed boost when leaving the Fountain (decays over the duration).

Creeps & Turrets

  • Orange Buff: The killer will also gain extra Penetration (10% for Marksman, Mage, and Support and 5% for Fighter, Tank, and Assassin. Gains Physical Penetration if the hero's extra Physical Attack isn't lower than their extra Magic Power, and Magic Penetration if otherwise) for the duration.
  • Inner Turret: HP increased by 200. If the Outer Turret is destroyed in the first 8 min, the corresponding Inner Turret gains 50% Damage Reduction instead of 40%.
  • Lord: Optimized the rule of Lord's spawn time. The announcement will now appear after the Lord's spawn animation ends.
