Assassin Joy might be better suited for another role | Pages Da

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Hero Joy, Flash of Miracle, has been released as an assassin, but players already have different opinions on how and where she should be played.

Many ranked players have played her in the jungle role, while some try their luck with her in the midline. If the enemy snipers don’t have mobility skills, some players even choose Joy in the gold lane to try and take advantage of her early game damage.

However, ONIC Esports’ Nicky “Kiboo” Fernando had something else in mind.

Instead of playing her as an assassin, the 20-year-old wanderer stuck to what he does best and played her as a wanderer with defensive items. Unlike most walkers who have at least a stun or disable in their kit, the hero assassin doesn’t have one. So what exactly makes her viable in this role?

Here’s how ONIC Esports’ Kibu took out Joy to build a unique roaming tank

Live on YouTube, the ONIC Esports nomad made use of Joy’s mobility and poise to disrupt the enemy jungler on their first purple buff.

Just as the enemy jungler finished doing the purple buff’s, Kibui had already helped his ally jungler take down all of his buffs, along with the Light Thunderer. He maintained pressure throughout, focusing his sights on the enemy jungler and sniping in teamfights.

Despite finishing the game with 0/2/7 KDA, Kibu significantly slowed down the enemy jungler, effectively keeping them away from the Turtle and Lord.

To make up for her low defense stat in the early game, he went for Tough Boots and Oracle first. This item also improved the shield on her passive, making her nearly unkillable in stacks. He later built an ice queen wand for the slow motion effect

The game ended before Kiwi could finish his fourth item, which was apparently a glowing wand, which pairs well with the Ice Queen’s wand.

Necklace of Durance is also a great choice if you want to deal more damage in the late game. Going for Dominance Ice is also a good idea if the team is behind and there are no tank heroes on your side.

Winter Truncheon is a good alternative if you are far in the game and the enemy team has a lot of crowd control and teamfight initiators.
