The newly revamped Akai, the almighty Panda Warrior, is now available on the live servers of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. Patch 1.6.72 also implements various balancing changes to heroes, including Masha, Natan, Aamon, Fanny, Benedetta, and Badang.

Revamped Hero

Akai is now more potent and deadlier in Patch 1.6.72 for several reasons. For one, his Tai Chi passive has a new effect. Back then, Akai only gained a shield that absorbs damage equal to 6% of his max HP every time he uses a skill. Now, every time his skills hit an enemy, that enemy gains a mark. This means his basic attacks now deal extra damage to marked enemies. He still gets a shield (50+5% Max HP) for four seconds for each skill cast.

His other abilities were also adjusted, like Headbutt, which is now his first skill. When used, he charges in a target direction and knocks the first enemy hit airborne. If he hits an enemy hero, Akai can roll in the same direction once.

His second skill is now known as Body Slam. Akai uses his body to smash the ground, dealing damage to enemies in the area and slowing them down.

Heavy Spin is the new name of his ultimate ability. Akai spins for four seconds and gradually increases his movement speed over the duration, dealing damage continuously to nearby enemies. Enemy heroes knocked back will also knock back other heroes they collide with during the process. Furthermore, Akai can cast Headbutt to quickly adjust his position if needed.
