Mobile Legends: Bang Bang New Hero Nolan Now Playable on Advanced Server

Beta Patch 1.7.96 Moonton Studios

Do you want to try a new hero on Mobile Legends: Bang Bang? Moonton Studios launched Beta Patch 1.7.96 on the advanced server that introduced Nolan, the Cosmic Wayfinder.

Nolan is an agile melee assassin in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang who is capable of creating rifts with his enhanced basic attacks and abilities. When two rifts converge, all nearby enemies are damaged, pulled toward the center, and slowed down for a brief period.

Moreover, Nolan's first and second skills have a very short cooldown of just 1.5 seconds, allowing him to create multiple rifts without breaking a sweat.

Speaking of skills, his first skill, Expansion, prompts Nolan to slice enemies in a rectangular area in front of him, dealing physical damage and slowing targets hit. Nolan's second skill is called Gauge, a pretty simple attack where he dashes in a target direction, dealing physical damage to enemies in his path.

What about his ultimate? It's called Fracture, and when used, Nolan slashes enemies in front of him, leaves three rifts behind, and dashes backward immediately after. What's great about this backward dash is that it removes all debuffs on him as well.

Aside from the new hero, Beta Patch 1.7.96 revamped Natalia's second skill, Smoke Bomb. Instead of dodging all basic attacks and increasing attack speed by 25% to 50%, Natalia's Smoke Bomb now makes her untargetable by enemies outside of the smoke. In other words, Natalia cannot be targeted by basic attacks or skills while she's inside the Smoke Bomb's area of effect.
